      Tp link Archer 1200

      Hi, have have just replaced my sky router with a new TP link one as the sky router just wasnt cutting it.
      After a few teething issues I seem to have sky working correctly now, however my wifi keeps dropping out maybe 5-10 times a day. I have tried changing the channel, I wondered if it had something to do with the sky wifi booster connected in the system? As when i do a wifi analysis test it comes up with both the TP link wifi and the sky booster wifi ?

      I'm assuming that devices connected using an Ethernet cable work correctly. Are all Wi-Fi connected devices affected? If so try turning off the booster and see if that makes a difference. You may need to power cycle the TP Link, if so leave it off for at least 30 minutes to ensure that internet connection speed is not adversely impacted.

      Yeh only wifi devices are affected as far as I know, as the drop out is only maybe 5 secs to the sky doesnt go off. Ok I will have a go at that ,

      Abit of a update, the drop outs seem to be getting worse ? It has to be something to do with the new route ssid conflicting with the sky boosters ssid as I can pick them both up when i search for wifi?
      I should only be able to pick up the TP link surely ?

      As I said earlier, try turning off the booster and see if that makes a difference.
