You may actually be too close to the device, You can access the wireless router from a browser (192.168.0.1 or tplinklogin.net)
The default login is admin / admin
Once the setup page displays you can go to the wireless section.
Here you can adjust the TX Rate and the Channel Width and other features to fine tune your device to work in your situation.

Here is a link to the manual as well in case the above is not clear.

Also ensure the device does not have to go through any metal walls, or other material that may disrupt the signal.

Please comment if more information is required.

Cant get wifi unless I am a couple of inches from router. All other wifi devices work perfectly. I even downloaded the latest driver directly from Intel and problem still exists.


Having a wireless Internet signal in your home allows multiple devices to use the same Internet connection without having to run lengths of Ethernet cable to each device. Given that the wireless network is transmitted over the air, the consistency of your Internet connection depends on the strength of the wireless signal. If wireless signal strength is not strong enough to give you a consistent Internet connection, there are a few simple steps for finding the problem and improving your signal strength.

Reset all devices. The majority of Internet issues, including poor wireless signal strength, are very often solved by a simple power cycle of all the devices in the network. Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and remove them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug the power to that device). Leave them unplugged for a full 30 seconds, plug them back in and restart your computer. When your computer fully reboots, check your wireless signal strength to see if it has improved. If it has not, further troubleshooting is required. Move your computer closer to your router, or your router closer to your computer. Wireless routers do not have unlimited range. One reason your computer may be getting a weak signal strength from your wireless network could be because your computer is simply outside of the router's range. Typically, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will install your modem in one specific location in the house and the modem will not work at other locations, so moving the modem or modem/router combination may not be a possibility. If this is the case, you may need to move the computer to a location that is within the range of the wireless router's broadcast. If you still get poor signal strength, your router may be experiencing a malfunction. Contact the technical support department of your router manufacturer. Router malfunctions often are not the result of a bad or broken router, but of something much simpler, such as the router's needing a firmware upgrade or an incorrect setting on the router's internal setup. If your router manufacturer is unable to improve your wireless signal strength, it may be time to purchase a new router. Purchase a new router. Wireless routers are priced in part based on how widely their wireless signal broadcasts (in other words, the more expensive the router you buy, the larger a wireless signal the router will broadcast). Included in the packaging of each wireless router is the approximated range, in square footage, of that router's wireless network. A good rule of thumb is to know the square footage of your house and buy a router that can accommodate that square footage. That way, as long as the router is functioning properly, you will have strong wireless signal strength throughout your entire home.

Me tp-link give weak internet and some times dissconected but when i uesed by wire give excellant internet speed


Most probable cause is the materials used in the construction on the home/office or where ever you have the router. Your options would be to move the router to a more central location or you could invest in some repeaters/wireless extender to extend the range of the signal. IF you use wireless extenders please note you will need to make sure they all have the same SSID (name seen for your network) and make each device is on either channels 1,6 or 11. So your first device would be say 1 (Doesn't matter which you pick) the next device would be on 6 and then next on 11. If you had another device, hypothetically you would want it on 1. These three channels do not overlap enough to interfere with each other.

Weak signal 60 feet away at neigbhoor's


Some routers just don't put out strong signals. The problems could be wiring in/around/at your house or neighbors....causing weak signal. Are the signal strengths strong in your house?

We have super signal strength on ours upstairs (we have a bi-level house) but downstairs the signal is very low. All the wiring in the house and anything electronic or otherwise can block it.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!
