The device can’t be connected to the router
Many people face this issue. The problem can also be from your Internet Service Provider. It is better to check it first before doing anything to your router.

One of the reasons for weak signals is the loose connection of the LAN cable. Always check whether the LAN cable has been inserted properly or not. Also, check to see if the power adapter cable is working fine or not. Also to confirm with your ISP, the problem can also be from their side.
Can’t setup router as a repeater:
If you are trying to make your router work as a repeater and it is not working then you may be doing something wrong. Make sure you are using the same password as in your Original Modem. Using different passwords and channels will result in failed connectivity. Check the Repeater settings from your router to see if these two settings match or not. You can have a different SSID in the modem and the repeater. It never causes any problem in the connection.
