    My Setup:
    Router: LinkSys EA8100
    Range Extender: TP-Link RE580D

    MAC:
    RE580D: EE:08:6B:E3:CB:0A
    PC Connected to RE580D: EE:84:35:C0:9E:8C

    The RE580D is connected to my PC via cable and has a wireless connection to my router EA8100.

    Every 10 minutes or so the connection between them drops completely until I manually enter the RE580D dashboard and connect them back. I'm not too sure who is disconnecting from who. But here are the logs.

    RE580D Dashboard Logs:
    *Red: That's what the RE580D shows when it automatically disconnects
    *Blue: That showed after i manually connected it back

    EA8100 sysinfo.cgi:
    The only relevant information I can find from that log is this
    I have sectioned the parts with spaces. The only thing I can assume is that this is the error message "CmdExtStaRecUpdateRsp::ERROR::EventExtCmdResult.u4Status = 0x10003" whatever this means...

    If anyone has a solution please please let me know. I've tried almost everything.. :( So here's what I tried

    On EA8100:
    Manually adjust the wifi channels, bandwidths and modes.
    Disabling upnp, ipv6.

    On RE580D:
    Disabling dhcp...
    *There isn't much to set on the RE580D.

    Sounds like wireless interference. Try moving closer to the wireless router.
