When the WiFiRanger connects to a WiFi network, it must temporarily stop broadcasting in order to establish the connection to the access point. This is normal operation. The drop in connection can be identified when a computer or device disconnects from the WiFiRanger WiFi broadcast. This occurs a few seconds after clicking Connect onto a network from the Main tab of the Control Panel. Expect the WiFiRanger broadcast to disappear for 15-30 seconds while it is establishing a connection to the access point. After this is accomplished, the WiFiRanger should start broadcasting to your computers and devices again. Be sure to reconnect your computers and devices back to the WiFiRanger broadcast if they do not automatically do so.
