Range reduced after firmware upgrade ?
« on: July 19, 2015, 04:04:48 AM »

I bought and installed DAP1320 yesterday. Extender was placed in a room 12 meters away from main router and was connecting without problem.
( Main router signal in this room is still grading 2/5 ).
The setup program than proposed me to update the firmware which I did. From this point it became impossible to connect from this room.
The extender does detect the main signal but won't connect to it.
I have to move the extender close to main router. Less than 3 meters to have it connecting again.
I do wonder if the firmware update is responsible for this. I restored factory settings but without any improvement.
Firmware version is B 2.03. I don't know if there is a way to get the older firmware and downgrade the actual.
Any help would be appreciated to solve the problem.
Many thanks

  • What Hardware version is your DAP? Look at the sticker under the DAP.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DAPs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What Mfr and model is the main host router?
  • What wireless modes are you using?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many? Use v3, its free.
