    Problem connecting to WiFi Wireless Access Point

    The setup in my house is that on the third floor I have my TP-Link router and on the ground floor I have a TP-Link WirelessG Access Point which is hard-wired direct from the router. On the ground floor I can access my netbook, Kindle and Wii OK via the WAP but the Xoom refuses to connect. On the ground floor I can get a weak signal from the router upstairs but I want a stronger signal, and I want to use the Xoom outside on the terrace. When I am using the router connection, the WAP signal Icon is showing at its full strength so if I disconnect the router connection and attempt to connect via the WAP it won't connect. Actually it seems to momentarily connect then immediately shows DIsconnected. TP-Link have suggested changing channels; this I have done without success. I have spoken to Motorola Xom Support but they say that because I can connect successfully to the router this proves there is nothing wrong with the Xoom. They suggested doing a factory reset but that didn't help either. It's all very frustrating! Can anybody help?

    I don't know tplink stuff. If the router has wifi then set it for a different channel than the AP. Same sSid and password.

    Have tried the AP on 3 different channels so at least 2 must have been different to the router. Do you mean same SSID and PW as now, or as each other?

    Same ssid and password as each other but on different channels. Leave a few channels in between ie 4 and 11. This way you have one wifi network with the same password operating across more of the spectrum.

    That will give you a better shot a getting connected and staying connected.

    Thanks for your attempt to help, but your fix didn't work! My technician had some ideas of his own and they seem to have worked. Something to do with reducing the power to 11 ?? Let's hope it holds!
