We did an article that you may find helpful. This will guide you on how to improve wireless connection see links below.
Note: You may need make sure that the distance of the Main modem/router and the router is far from each other to avoid Wi-Fi interference.
Have applied the instruction however whilst LAN is giving reliable internet access from the extender/AP the WIFI signal is not reliable and drops out on different devices stating 'no internet connection'.
I applied the new IP address as per the TP Link instruction to the AP - with DHCP disabled as advised.
Any suggestions to improve WIFI reliability on AP?
Many thanks to the participants in this thread: I've now got my Archer acting as a media converter for ADSL to ethernet, and have posted a how-to here https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/Howto-using-the-Archer-VR1600v-as-a-network-bridg...
VLAN tagging on the Archer, when acting as a bridge, and not my interior router was the main stumbling block, thanks guys!
Yes! The TPG NBN VOIP phone service should not be affected by the modem bridge mode as its encrypted to the modem/router's firmware.
With the TP-Link VR1600 modem/router in bridge mode will the phone port still work as I am having my landline phone number ported from my Telstra copper line to the TPG phone service.?
Thanks for your reply and help.
I will let you know how things go when my line is switched from ADSL to VDSL.
Promised to happen tomorrow.
Can't wait to get something faster than 3Mbps down and 0.5Mbps up that we have been living with all these years.
