Windows 10: no internet via wifi range extender

    no internet via wifi range extender


    windows 10 installed major updates this morning now I cannot get onto the internet via my range extender this has always been intermittent in the past but could get it to work eventually I have run the connection diagnostics and its telling me there are components missing and will not connect?

    if I move rooms so that I am directly linked to the router instead of the extender everything works fine.

    Ran troubleshooting and did it lists what exactly was missing, if it works using the routers wifi without the extender then i would believe you found the issue being the extender since it has been intermittent in the past. Been issues here with WiFi extenders, doubt the Windows update caused it.

    Should have said all other devices work through extender I pad I phones etc
    this has been intermittent since I upgraded to Windows 10 it would work fine if I left it for around 30 mins and then shut down and powered up but after the update this morning it does not want to know.

    Same similar issue here if you read, seemed to be the extender as all other devices worked fine to.
