Fix the TP-Link Router from Disconnecting

When it comes to wireless connectivity, TP-link routers are the most preferred ones. These wifi routers allow multiple devices to share just one internet connection and fill their internet needs from different places. But sometimes, you may face router disconnectivity issues.

There can be several causes behind these issues. Some of the issues are ISP issues, poor or lost signal strengths, bridging configuration, DNS issues, and DHCP issues. If you have tried all the possible methods and solutions to fix the TP-link router disconnection problem and the issue is not resolved yet, then it can be a problem with the router or the hardware.

How to Fix the TP-Link Router from Disconnecting Eventually?

1. ISP Issues: Whenever there is a problem with the ISP, the Internet is automatically disconnected via your access point or wireless router. This problem is usually indicated with ‘No Connection’ or ‘Limited’ messages. The same happens when you are connected directly or through a TP-Link router.

In such cases, wait and check if the wifi connection automatically restores on its own. If no connectivity is seen, restart the modem and try to connect again. Still, if the connectivity issue continues, contact your ISP. Sometimes the Internet works fine at AP/Modem’s end, but there are issues with the router.

2. Weak or Lost Signals: If your router has been connected over LAN, check or ensure that there are no loose connections and the cables have been connected properly. If the router is connected over Wireless WAN (Wi-Fi), check that the router is placed appropriately at a location that is receiving adequate signals.

If the WAN signals are not good enough, they won't help you in getting a smooth Internet connection. Keep changing the router's location until it catches the best signals.

3. Ensure Bridging Configuration: In case you are using extenders or repeaters for bridging (extending Wi-Fi or repeating), ensure that you are using the same password and network channel as your Modem or Access Point.

Different passwords and channels result in issues like "no connectivity" or "limited connectivity". So, confirm the WDS Bridge/Repeater settings and whether they match with the Wi-Fi settings of the Modem or Access Point. Having two different SSIDs doesn't matter.

4. DNS: Well if you want to fix TP Link connection issues, use Google Public DNS which works great in fixing the connection. You can do this in the provided ways:

  • Configure this DNS IP address in router DHCP settings [DHCP > DHCP Settings > Primary DNS & Secondary DNS]
  • Configure this DNS address in your LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi connection settings [Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings]
  • To use DNS for Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection [Open Ethernet / Local Area Connection / Wi-Fi > Properties > Networking > Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > Properties > Use the following DNS server addresses]

The DNS can be changed for Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) but your ISP may cause an issue in case it doesn't support IPv6.

The Various Google Public DNS IP Addresses are:

IPv4:
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

IPv6:

2001:4860:4860::8888
2001:4860:4860::8844

Note: While changing your DNS server in your router DHCP settings, select the “Obtain DNS server address automatically” option in your Ethernet or Wi-Fi settings.

5. DHCP: For cases, when you are using a TP-Link router as a repeater, extender, or WDS bridge (WDS stands for wireless range extension) or for connecting multiple computers over LAN, this limited or no connectivity issues have a higher occurrence.

In such scenarios, DHCP fails to assign IP addresses due to IP conflicts. Such an issue occurs when a firmware glitch or incompatibility between connected devices is occurring. To fix this connectivity related problem, disable DHCP using the given steps:

  • Open the URL 192.168.0.1 in a web browser and log into the configuration panel of your router.
  • Click on the DHCP tab shown in the side section. The DHCP settings will be displayed on your screen.
  • Simply disable the DHCP option without configuring other settings.
  • Now restart the router to implement the done settings.
  • Ensure that you have done all necessary configuration settings for the router else you won't be able to access it after disabling DHCP. The user has to manually assign an IP address to the computer matching the default IP address of the router.

Note: As you press the reset button on the router to reset it, the saved router settings are automatically lost.

Now if you have tried all solutions to fix tp link router keeps disconnecting from the internet and still the problem persists then it might be some hardware or router problem.
