Yes, that sounds encouraging. Also I was pleased to see essential

is hope ...
I think homeplug is designed to recover after power outages.

Yes, TP-Link Support seems to be
good as claimed. I am not yet done testing things but it looks
like the Access Point and Ethernet circuit may be working as expected, it will
take a few days to know but this morning it looks good? It appears the main problem was
that the AP wants the LAN input signal fed into the WAN port
on the A7 AC1759 router and I plugged it into one of the
four remaining ethernet
jacks. Tech support responded to my request for AP
configuration instructions which I could not find, with some
easy to understand steps, the key being: "3rd: Once it's
Done Please connect the cable again from Main Router to
Archer A7 using ( WAN PORT or Blue Port )".
And I guess that is logical,
the LAN input signal is replacing the WAN signal from a
modem. I guess what
operation I did have, which
was not working reliably,
depended on a received
radio signal, that in the weak signal area I am
trying to improve with this exercise! The
iPhone/iPad, whatever users are all out of the house presently
so I will not have
a good test until
already lost user
confidence in my ability to do a simple task so I hope I can pull out of this with
a working system,
