When a user faces a sudden loss in Internet connection issues or slow data transfer problem within the network, it may be the case that your extender is not in an appropriate location. The placement of an extender plays a major role in transmitting the Wi-Fi signals into your router. Users are recommended to choose an optimum place for their extender i.e the midway between your router and the dead area from where you are not receiving the networks. During the tplinkrepeater.net setup process, a user has to make sure that there is no obligation between your router and the dead area network. An optimum place should be properly ventilated, there should be no electronic devices, no reflecting objects, no machinery, and no other networking devices.
