I just bought a new unit and I am using it as a repeater for my home network Wi-fi (TP-Link router).
The GL unit seems to work fine for about 5-10 minutes and then the WiFi keeps disconnecting and reconnecting between the GL unit and the TP Link wifi connection on the GL Admin Panel. I am pinging google.com and when this happens it shows most requests timing out with the occasional one getting through.
This is without using VPN and I am also using a external 2A PSU on the unit so it is not a power issue (Also tried a 1A PSU and Laptop USB for power).
As a last resort I upgraded the firmware to 3.026 but exactly the same thing is happening. Works fine for the first 5-10 mins and then keeps dropping and reconnecting to the wi-fi in the GL Admin Panel and pinging to google times out with occasional reply getting through.
I did buy it to use as a travel repeater with VPN when I go away, but I can’t even get it to work as a repeater at home.
Could I possibly have a faulty unit and are there known issues with these?
