[Resolved] TP Link Firmware Update Failed

  1. Restart the TP Link Extender

This is the most basic troubleshooting hack that we recommend to users whenever they get stuck with extender-related issues. We would advise you to give your TP Link extender a restart too. You can do so by walking through the below-given instructions:

  • Turn off your extender by hitting the power button.
  • Wait for some time.
  • Once done, press the power button again on the extender, this time to turn it on.

Now, try to update the firmware of your TP-Link wireless extender by accessing the TP Link extender setup login page.

Are you able to? No? Well, worry not. You still have a couple of more hacks to implement.

  1. Check the Ethernet Connection

Perhaps the Ethernet cable used by you to connect the TP Link extender to the home router is damaged. If you refuse to believe us, check for yourself. Is what we saying true? Are you nodding your head in yes? Well then, this calls for you to change the Ethernet cable with a brand new one immediately.

In case, this little hack does not bear fruit for you, then take our advice and connect your devices using a wireless medium.

  1. Pull the WiFi Devices Closer

Once you are done ensuring a strong connection between your TP Link extender and the host router, maintaining a safe distance between them is the next thing to do. The reason is, that a lot of distance between your devices can prevent their WiFi signals from getting transmitted properly thereby creating a communication gap.

Therefore, it is recommended that you reduce the distance between your devices. Just see to it that they are not placed neck to neck. Or else, their signals will clash.

  1. Keep WiFi Interference Away

Cordless phones, washing machines, microwave ovens, refrigerators, Bluetooth speakers, treadmills, televisions, baby monitors, etc are all examples of smart home appliances. These appliances have the power to mess with the signals of your extender, thereby stopping you from accessing TP Link extender login page and achieving firmware update success.

To take care of the problem, change the location of your TP-Link wireless range extender. See to it that reflexive surfaces like mirrors and fish tanks are also not kept near it.

  1. Perform Factory Default Reset

In case, none of the aforementioned troubleshooting hacks have helped you to fix the TP Link extender firmware failure issue, then performing a factory default reset is your last resort. Fret not. The TP Link extender reset process is not that difficult to execute.

However, if you feel that you need help to go about the process, then here are the steps you need to refer to:

  • Locate the Reset button.
  • You will find it at one of the corners of your extender.
  • Once found, carefully press it.
  • Hold on for some time.

The minute you are done resetting your device, setup TP Link extender from scratch.

Summing Up

With that, we are putting an end to our guide written on troubleshooting TP Link firmware update failure issues. We hope that you were able to rectify the issue in a hassle-free way. If you are acquainted with any other hack through which this issue can be rectified, share it with your fellow readers.
