Hitron CODA 4582U: TP Link RE450 range extender won't connect
We have a Hitron CODA4582 router and I've been trying to extend the wireless network to the back of our house using a TP-Link RE450 range extender. I have gone through the set up over and over again, reset the TP Link extender numerous times, and it is never able to connect to the router. We had the TP-Link set up with our previous router (also a Hitron) with no problem.
I spent hours on support with someone from TP-Link, with no success. Rogers customer support told me they can't help with this kind of issue.
I understand from searching online that this is a known issue that has to do with the Hitron Router and that it affects all different brands and models of range extenders. But I haven't found any solution.
Community is the right place to get help with standard or non-standard home networking setup!
Please provide us with more details on how you are configuring your RE450. Are you configuring it via wired connection or WiFi connection? The TP-Link support pages recommend configuring your RE450 via a wired connection.

I followed the instructions from TP-link-- many times. There were no instructions about configuring it via a wired connection, I tried wirelessly both through the web-based control panel and using the WPS buttons. I have looked everywhere for a solution and haven't found anything, but did find a lot of discussion about how this is a known problem with the Hitron CODA 4582.
