    I ordered and received a TP-Link TL-WR702N Wireless Internet Adapter with my OpenSprinkler order. Whenever I plugin/powerup the TP-Link unit, it does something that renders the WiFi (802.11b/g) on my UVerse 3801HGV Residential Gateway (RG) unusable. All WiFi devices in the house get dropped and are unable to re-connect to the RG. The only remedy is to unplug the TL-WR702N and cold-boot the RG. This happens whether the TL-WR702N is in the default AP mode or the re-configured client-only mode.

    Any ideas on how I can fix this? It’s going to be very difficult to run a cat5e connection.

    If the wifi module does not work then try to use a powerline adapter which sends the network signal through the power lines in your home. We sell a powerline kit on our website, available here: https://opensprinkler.com/product/powerline-ethernet-adapter/

    I have the same issue between TP-Link TL-WR702N Wireless Internet Adapter and my home router Netgear D6300.

    So I think it is a general issue of the WR702N (or probably of the configuration).

    I buy it on amazon.it

    Maybe anyone can share similar issue and solution ?

    Regards,
    Emiliano.

    I gave up and ended up hardwiring mine.

    Due to the increasing number of reported issues with the WiFi adapter, we are now recommending powerline adapters:

    which is more reliable than WiFi adapters.
