    Wifi not connecting

    Wifi suddenly won't connect on my home network. It is stuck on 'Obtaining IP address' and showing only one bar when normally it shows 4 bars.

    I have reset the modem and the router.

    I have tried Forget Network and then get the message 'Protected Network Available" (the network has no security settings turned on) The home network is not removed from the list of available networks.

    If I try Advanced; Modify: Save... I get a message "Avoided poor internet connection"

    I have tried a soft reset and a hard reset all to no avail.

    Any help and advice most gratefully received.

    Welcome to the forum

    Just looking at your explanation and what you have tried I think I'm confused, but I suggest you try connecting at a public WiFi hotspot and if you can connect, your modem may be having issues.

    Thanks for the welcome. All other devices on the network connect well; 2 PCs , a smartphone, a laptop, a range extender and a wireless media server. It's just the TFP 201 that tries to 'Obtain Ip address" but fails.

    Ah, first I noticed about the extender. See if getting it out of the loop for a while solves the problem. At least you'll have a starting point. Having repeaters and range extenders have been known to trip up TFs but I feel there is a solution, somewhere.

    I think you have hit the nail on the head. Taking it out of the equation has fixed the problem. Thank you very much.

    I appreciate the kudos but with some tinkering you should still be able to use the extender. Problem only half solved.

    At least you know it works.
