COVR 3902 Randomly Dropping
« on: July 23, 2020, 07:15:02 AM »

So i have the main router and 2 extenders, the extenders are working by utilizing the ethernet ports. ie, i have an ethernet wire running from my main router to a switch which then goes to the extender.

I am sitting right next to the extender when working and its randomly dropping throughout the day and i have no idea why (both my laptop and my phone). My laptop will say connected but no internet... Any ideas?

Router version:
Current Firmware Version:   1.01, Thu 03 Aug 2017
Current Firmware Date:   2017-08-03 02:40:00


Extender versions:

Current Firmware Version:   1.01, Thu 30 Aug 2018
Current Firmware Date:   2018-08-30 15:59:00


Any suggestions would be awesome!

Ok, will check on FW status.

Yes, let swap extender positions to see if the problem follows or not. Also try the Extender wirelessly connected instead of ethernet connected...

I tried it, came up with the same FW as before
Current Firmware Version:   1.01, Thu 30 Aug 2018
Current Firmware Date:   2018-08-30 15:59:00

So i guess my extenders are already the latest and greatest? What about my router? Which FW should I be running with?

Not too sure how to check the B version. but

Current Firmware Version:   1.01, Thu 03 Aug 2017
Current Firmware Date:   2017-08-03 02:40:00

I feel like there should be something newer than 2017 for the router?

Well there hasn't been much user problems posted since 2017 so I presume D-Link must consider the FW good enough.

So, Can you wirelessly connect the extenders and see if they drop connection?
Swap extenders around as well to see if the problem follows one or both of the extenders.

If you log into the router and the type:

http://192.168.1.1/version.txt ( or whatever you have the IP set at) 

you will see the actual firmware info.  You can do same for extender, just use it's IP after logging into the admin menu.

Swap extenders around as well to see if the problem follows one or both of the extenders.

Tried swapping, they still dropped. I cant connect wirelessly because the speed of the extender drops dramatically
