Ever since I set up this RE1000 device, all my devices (iPhones, iPads) drop their connection after a few hours. Not only does this happen for devices that connect to the RE1000, but also those that connect to my main Linksys router. The only solution is to unplug the RE1000.

To ensure the proper configuration of the range extender, you need to know the wireless settings of your router or access point. These settings are:
• Wireless Channel
• Wireless Security and Network Key

If the issue still persist then you have to optimize the settings of the router to get the better result. The router by default uses a channel setting of auto, which means that it would keep switching channels depending on the interference. I’d recommend you set it to a fixed channel. Usually, 1, 3, 6 and 9 give you the best performance depending on your environment of course. I’d suggest you try different channels, observing each for a while, to see which gives you the best performance. You can follow the link here on how to change channels.
