Hey guys,

I have an ADSL 2+ modem/router/wifi (TD-W8960N) with a decent connection speed. As the range achieved by the integrated wifi was a bit short, I bought a dedicated AP (TL-WA801ND).
It was quite easy to configure etc and works very well  with all my devices except one: My Xbox 360.

I use this XBox as a Media Center Extender so having a good connection to my Media Center PC is quite important. When I go to the menu to check the connection on the XBox Extender, I consitently get a "Poor Connection" and interestingly, the conenction seems to be pretty consistent, just hovering over a pretty low value but not all over the place.

What is also interesting is that this Same Xbox gets an average (but better) signal if I connect it to the built-in Wifi hotspot of my router (which I would rather not use as the Ap can be palced in a better location to have a better networ throughout the house). This tells me that my issue is related to network or configuration rather than simply interference or noise, etc..

Would anyone have any idea about what I could do to try and fix this issue?

Cheers,

Guillaume

Need to know a lot more about the setup.

Is the AP connected via Ethernet? Is it using the same SSID? If so is it using a different channel (remembering you should ideally only use 1,6,11).

Good Point: The AP is connected to the modem/router via Ethernet. I have disabled the Wireless AP on the modem/router and in terms of channels, I have tried a few including 1 and 8 (because 8 seems to have the least amount of neigboors on it)

Cheers

Nope.

Other than suggesting you've got something configured incorrectly, but it's one of those scenarios where guessing exactly what settings somebody could have used and what could be wrong isn't possible.
