Sometimes when I log into my router homepage 192.168.1.154 it shows the wireless extender as inactive. Does this mean it is not functioning? Other times it shows as active. How do I prevent this from happening?

Likely not. The 'green' certification for many electronics expects power saving mode be applied at appropriate use cases. No activity for a while would be reason to drop to a lower power mode. It will come back to normal activity within a few seconds of use.

If whatever is connected to the extender is not having any issues connecting, ignore it. If the extender hasn't been used in a while it may go into a power saving mode and appear inactive until it's needed.

Is there any way to stop it from going into power saving mode? I recently upgraded to the new wireless ac extender WEB6000Q, and it seems to be slower than the WCB3000N i had previously.
