Re: Is there a limit to number of wireless devices attached to 2.4ghz on HH6?

Ive no idea. I thought that too. Perhaps you can shed some light? Seems to be a lot going on with 192.168.1.120 but I can't figure out what that  isScreenshot 2019-03-28 at 14.51.51.jpg

Interestingly, I was told this of the TP Link from their help desk regarding number of devices

You can connect up to 32 wireless devices however it will depend on how the wireless devices will use the internet connection

So it will limit it as well depending on the bandwidth speed."

The device is requesting an IP address every 15 minutes for some reason.

I bet that is an Apple device making those requests.

Try filtering on "system", that should show any line drops.

The MAC address suggests a Sky device.

Its actually your Sky box which is doing that, according to the MAC address.

Agreed, I wonder if it keeps powering up and down every 15 minutes?

My Sky box doesnt have wifi. I have a Zyxel extender attached to the Sky in order to give it wireless for catch up etc. Could this be it?

It isn't necessarily a wifi connection, is the Sky box connected via Ethernet to the extenders?

The DHCP renewal can be either wireless or LAN. Is the extender a powerline type device? If so, then it probaby keeps going to standby, and disconnecting the Sky box.

Which model of extender is it?
