TP-Link Wireless Access point problem

Q: TP-Link Wireless Access point problem

I have a Draytek Vigor 2820 ADSL Modem Router supplying my internet connection to my home network with both wired and wireless devices connected to it.

To extend the wireless range of my network I purchased a TP-Link TL-WA701ND.

I am using the TL-WA701ND in universal repeater mode, connected to my Draytek wirelessly and using the MAC address of the Draytek. I have also set my Draytek to operate in bridge mode using the MAC address of the
TL-WA701ND.

I can get internet services and email through the TL-WA701ND wirelessly without problem.

My problem is that I CANNOT access file sharing or iTunes home sharing services through the TL-WA701ND. I cannot see any of my computers connected to the draytek router. However I can see computers
connected to the TL-WA701ND from other computers connected to the Draytek Router.

I have tried switching the TL-WA701ND to Repeater mode with WDS activated on the Draytek router and I lose my network connection completely from the TL-WA701ND.

A wired option is not an option, as this is a set-up between two houses.

I have searched the internet and TP-Link site for support on this matter and have found nothing.

Any ideas.

Thanks, Max.

Hi,

i have setup a DIR600 router as a wireless access point and configured it to take IP address automatically by contacting the DHCP server.
when it reloaded, it takes my domain controllers (My DHCP server) ip address as its address while creating IP address conflict with the server. when i check the dhcp server, sometimes its hostname comes under the address leases and sometime not comming.

my server's host name goes as "server.xxxx.com" and access points host name is mention as "dir600.server.xxxx.com" in the DHCP leases section.

can anybody help me to avoid the router taking the server address? (server address has statically configured)

Is that a feature of the router, or you have configured it by the method that works for all routers?

... configured it to take IP address automatically by contacting the DHCP server.Click to expand...

In access point mode? That's extremely strange. And, assuming that's possible, why?

when it reloaded ...Click to expand...

Meaning of "reloaded"?

... it takes my domain controllers (My DHCP server) ip address as its address while creating IP address conflict with the server.Click to expand...

That implies a problem with the server--somehow you have it configured to have its own address in the Dhcp server's address range.

Hi guys, this is my first post so be gentle and talk slow please...

I've got the BT HH4 set up as the main router in my house but because it "has" to be plugged into the Master Socket its currently tucked away in the loft upstairs and the WiFi signal downstairs is really struggling because of it... So I decided to stick my neck out and install an access point downstairs as the house is cabled up! The one I've gone for is the 'TP-Link TL-WA901ND' which I checked was pretty good and would do the job for me, however before it's arrived I found out that I COULD have just used the old HH3 instead?!

So here's my question, does anyone know which device would be better as a Wireless Access Point downstairs..? Either the BT Home Hub 3 or the TP-Link TL-WA901ND (Advanced 300Mbps Wireless N Access Point).

Any help would be appreciated, I just want to see if it's worth me sending the TP Link back if the HH3 does a better job..!

Many thanks in advance =D
 

A:BT HH3 or TP-Link TL-WA901ND as Wireless Access Point??

i would suggest you try the HH3 and see how it works for you.

Its difficult to advise, because the construction of the house and layout has a lot to do with how the wireless signal performs , also the interference from other wireless signals , if there are a lot in the area , can impact the quality.

I am running completely wireless now. I have a Linksys WRT54G router and about 5 computers connected to it wirelessly (G).

I have a printer that has a built in network card, and you can configure the IP address from the setup screen on the printer. (Xerox C2424)

I'm trying to link the printer up to the router, wirelessly. I have been told that you can use a USB Print Server, but that would not be necessary considering that I have a built-in network card already in the printer. I just purchased a DWL-G700AP D-Link Access Point to hook up to the printer, but I am unsure of how I should configure it. I am trying to link the printer wirelessly to the router, and sharing that to the people on my network.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

A:TP-Link TL-WA701ND Access Point configuration problem

Generally speaking, there's a limited number of ways to access a router's configuration utility. Some will have an access port on the back of the router; but with the typical home-type router, you would utilize the web-browser method. Sometimes this is with a name like 'tp-linkrouterconfig' (or something to that effect), but more often than not it's via a specific IP address as you show above. Some routers will allow configuration through the wireless connection(s), but some specifically require you to be wired directly to the router.

Either way, you will have to be connected directly through that particular router, not through a different one. (eg - You shouldn't be able to access the TP-Link config utility while you're plugged into the other one across the way, or while accessing through another router's wireless connection)

Now, if you're trying to:

... configure this device online ...Click to expand...

Unless you're simply trying to state that you'd use your Web Browser to do so, then there's NO WAY you're going to configure your home router from outside the home network.

A:Problem with wireless access point!

Use a wireless router hooked to the cable modem. Most, if not all, wireless routers have 4 wired ports in back as well. Hook your computer to the wireless router through the wired port in the back and he can access the cable modem through the wireless part of the router.

I recently had to have someone do a system restore on my compaq laptop because of an electrical storm. Now, I have trouble with my laptop connecting to the wireless access point. Sometimes it will connect to the signal and then drop off. Sometimes not connect at all. When I power the wireless access pt down and then reconnect its power cord, my laptop connects to the signal and stays connected. My question: Was a key file taken off the hard drive, or is the wireless access going out? Buffalo Air Station is what I have. It's about 4 years old.
 

A:Wireless access point problem??

If it connects and is operable, if only for a short period of time, it's not a "key" issue.

The only real test would be another wireless device/laptop, to see if it can connect to your AP and stay connected. That will verify the AP is operational.

Or test the laptop at another location. That will verify if your laptop is operational.

Hi -
I have a network where I am using a wireless router as a WAP and it is connected by wire to a cable modem. The WAP is connected to the modem not through the WAN port but in the 1st port (as is necessary for the WAP). Also DHCP is off on the WAP and on on the modem/router. For a computer connected directly to the modem/router by wire, I can access the Internet without a problem. For a computer connected to the wireless (192.168.1.6 which is outside of the modem/routers DHCP range from 192.168.1.33-192.168.1.63), I cannot connect to the Internet. I know it is a DNS problem since I can connect to servers on the wireless if I give them an IP address into Firefox and not a named address. Furthermore, this problem is new. For a few weeks, this setup was working fine. And then one day, no Internet on wireless.

Any ideas on what might be happening?

Below are the details of one laptop when connect by wire to the router/modem and another computer when connected to the wireless.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I'd consider updating your Wi-Fi adapter to the latest one if you have not done this yet.

Also, a Xirrus capture might be worth reviewing. Download, install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector so that we can see if there's any signal issue or interference.
To run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, double click the Xirrus icon on your Desktop, you may use the Windows 7 snipping tool to crop or Paint by tapping the Print screen key on your keyboard, open up Paint (Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>Paint) then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then save it and please attach the file on your next post.

Hi, I'm having problem connecting to my wireless router. The router is working fine since I can use my iPod Touch and 3DS with it, it's my laptop that's giving me issues. The problem started at 3:30 in the morning and I went to school hoping it would be somehow better when I came back (wishful thinking, I know. ), but of course...it wasn't. I remember when my computer told me it couldn't connect to the router I clicked on trouble shoot and it told me Vmnet1 and 8 were disabled and since I don't know anything about fixing it, I didn't trouble it. Can someone please help me? I'm currently using an Ethernet cable that is connected to my wireless router and it's a huge inconvenience. Thank you in advance for your time and help.

A:Problem with the Wireless Adapter or Access point

You should first go into Device Manager and disable the two Microsoft Virtual WiFi mini port adaptors, these are famous for causing wireless connection problems and are only used for sharing a wireless connection.

It may also help to disable the Bluetooth connection if you aren't using it.

Just to confirm you don't have iTunes or McAfee installed on this system?

I will be online and click on a page and it won't load. I do the troubleshooter and it says that there is a problem with the wireless adapter or access point. It will fix it in that moment, but it happens multiple times in a day. I have reset the router, doesn't help. I think it may be my computer because when it happens I can still visit sites on my phone. I have a HP laptop (HP G61), and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both network adapters in the device panel. I really need this fixed because I have an online class and I keep getting disconnected.

Also, I'm not the best with computers, so please try to be specific with any solutions.

Also, the router has been changed multiple times and the problem has persisted.

Hi,

I am working in an organization where there are so many wireless devices installed, Access Points & Routers. We are using 3 or 4 gateways here. Now the problem is that i am not able to ping any of my wifi access points form my machine in other network even i can ping the systems on other network.

Clarifying:
I am using a network 10.7.0.0/16, 10.6.0.0/16 and 10.5.0.0/16. I have some access points in network 10.7.0.0/16 and also in other networks. I have created routes on my gateways and they are able to ping each other's nodes. But problem is that they are not pinging the APs from each other.
For example i have an AP with IP 10.7.0.15/16, if i ping from 10.7.0.0/16, it's pinging fine. But if i ping from 10.6.0.0/16, i am getting no reply.
But a System with IP 10.7.0.75 from a network 10.6.0.0/16 is pinging fine & form all my networks as well.
In this way all computer systems in all networks are pinging each other but the APs are not accessible from outside network.

A:Problem with wireless adapter or access point

Hi jessica143,

As you have re-installed the operating system, some drivers might be missing and causing issues. After installing Windows, you need to update the drivers from Here and in correct order as given Here.

Dell Inspiron 1750 is shipped with various wireless card options. You may follow the steps below to find the model of wireless card in your system and share it here :
Press Windows + R button on keyboard
Type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotes) and press Enter
Expand Network Adapter and check if your wireless card is listed
If the wireless card is not listed under Network Adapter, Expand Other devices
The wireless card would be listed as Network Controller under Other devices indicating missing drivers.
You may right click the Network Controller device under Other devices in Device Manager and click on Properties -> Details -> Hardware Id
Please share a screenshot of Device Manager with Network Adapter and Other devices expanded

Please reply with the findings. Will take it further from there.

Hi guys, I'm still a noob when it comes to fixing network problems such as this topic. I usually turn off the router for 10 seconds and turn it back on and it has worked fine in the past. However, a couple of days ago, the router started kicking out everyone on the connection. The turning off the router method would only work for 15 minutes before giving me trouble again. I decided to do a hard reset and restored it to factory default. Worked fine for day until the nightmare began again.

So, when I got kicked out again after a hard reset, I used the "turn off router for 10 seconds" method again. This time it only worked for an hour before giving me the horrendous message "Problem with wireless adapter or access point" . I can keep shutting the router off but it gets annoying doing it so often.

Now, the problem is not with my computer only. My iPod, laptop, PS3 and my family's wireless devices won't work either. The router I currently use is D-LINK DIR 657 Media Router and it's only a year old. The Belkin router (which I thought was inferior to the current router) lasted me almost 3 years before switching to D-LINK.

The WiFi Miniport adapters are disabled since that was the solution on another thread but that solution did not work for me hence why I'm here. I've connected to the modem directly via ethernet cable and that works fine. Is this a problem with the router directly and should I get a new one as a solution?

So in short:routerproblem.... all computers have problems.
Only wireless devices have problems.
It works fine for a few hours
When connecting computer wired it keeps working all the time(?) If so... not a provider problem.
Resetting only the router fixes the problem (for few hours).

A:Belikin Wired Wireless Access Point Problem

My guess is it's probably a firewall issue, that's the most common problem in attempting to share files.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

Hello! I regularly burn the midnight oil at my favorite local coffee shop. I recently purchased a new laptop which seems to have problems connecting to the wireless public router the coffee shop has for its guests. When it works, you are immediately taken to a landing page in your browser where you accept the terms of some agreement, which gives you free access to the internet. Most of the time, however, I can't connect and get a yellow exclamation mark over my network icon or a message that my computer cannot connect to the DNS server. The funny thing is that my wireless card detects the network and gets a signal.

From what I can tell, I can always connect after the shop resets its modem. If I leave and come back at some future date and the router has not been reset since my last visit, I am unable to connect. I suspect that the router is not renewing my ip address or is somehow remembering me from my prior visit. Oddly, no one else around me has this problem.

Also, not sure if it matters, but the coffee shop also has a second, slower network connection which I am able to access and does not require the use of the above described landing page and agreement.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. It gets very frustrating spending half an hour each evening trying to resolve this issue.

Hi there!

I am starting to see stars this is so frustrating.. my internet works fine on my laptop, but consistently cuts in and out on my PC. It will go from functioning to "limited" or just cut out all together.

I recently installed an internal wireless card (Qualcomm Atheros AR938x) which works absolutely brilliantly on every network its been connected to so far EXCEPT my home connection. The driver is up to date, that is not the issue.
My wireless comes from Netgear N600 router. My modem is from Charter and the model is DPC3008. This problem occurs even when I plug in directly to the modem via Ethernet.. so I am really struggling for the answer.. Is my modem incompatible with my PC? Do I need to switch to a static IP address?

thank you so much! I am at a real loss here!

I've a Pirelli modem-router and I'd like to connect a D-Link dwl-2100ap as access point (operation mode= access point).

Details:
I connected 2100ap to Pirelli through an ethernet cable
2100ap has a dynamic ip provided by Pirelli's dhcp
Pirelli and D-Link 2100ap have same SSID, same encryption (wpa) and same pw but, probably, different channel (both on "auto channel scan").
With a notebook on the wan I can ping the 2100ap, I can access to its setting pages but if I go close to it (far away from Pirelli) I don't see any network with the notebook, in other words the D-Link doesn't work as access point.

Hi,

My home network consists of 8 PCs, a PVR, an IP Camera, a PS3, a Wii and a network printer. My sons also have iPods they want to connect wirelessly.

My internet connection is cable which connects to a Netgear WNR3500 wireless gigabit router. This is cabled to a DLink 1016D 16 port gigabit switch.

Wireless is enabled on the WNR3500 and the iPods connect fine within a 25-30 foot radius of the router. The PS3 only got a 35-45% signal from 15 feet away so I cabled it. The other end of the house is 60 feet away.

At the other end of the house I have a PC and a PVR connected to a DLINK DGS1008D 8 port gigabit switch.

I purchased a TP-LINK TL-WA601G access point from a computer store who told me this would enable me to have the wireless devices to access the network from that end of the house.

But I can't get it working. I have the same SSID on both wireless routers. I have the TP-Link set to access point mode, and plugged into the switch. The WNR3500 is 192.168.1.250 and the TP-Link is 192.168.1.254. When I look at connected devices on the WNR3500 I do not see the TP-LINK.

Can someone please provide guidance as to how I extend my wireless capabilities to the far end of the house. Sorry for being a noob.

thanks

A:Correct mode for TP-Link access point?

The simple answer is that the store guy gave me a bum steer.

The correct answer is that the TP-Link had to be configured as a repeater, and the MAC address of the WNR3500 added.

On the Netgear WNR3500 I had to enable the wireless repeater and set it as a repeater base station then add the MAC address of the TP-LINK.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi

Hopefully quite a simple question, although I may be wrong! I have a spare router, a D-Link DSL-2640R that I would like to set up as a wireless access point. The reason is, I am currently residing in student accommodation, where the only source for internet access is wired ethernet ports in the bedroom walls.

Obviously the standard setup of the router wont allow me to broadcast this connection wirelessly, as it requires a phone line, however I have been told a "Wireless Access Point" would allow me to connect with various devices (Xbox 360, Laptop, iPhone etc.) without switching ethernet cables around all the time.

I have been trying to make do with ICS on my Windows laptop, however this doesn't seem to work with Xbox Live.

I have a good knowledge of computing just fall short when it comes to networking. Any help or guides would be great.

Hello.

We are currently upgrading our wifi technology at work. As a result I have obtained an access point that was used in the network no longer needed. I would like to install this in my home in order to boost the signal and range.

The access point is a D-Link DWL-8610AP. I have no CD-ROM or manual however I have looked at a few videos online. The problem I have at the moment is that I cannot seem to get into the Access point user interface to make any changes.

I have connected the access point my laptop using an ethernet cable. There are 2 ports on the access point: a LAN port and a console port. I have tried both.
Next I have opened a browser and typed 192.168.0.50 into the address bar which I acquired from an online manual and video. However, this just returns a search list when I expected a window requesting the login details for the access point. I can't seem to get any further.

I have almost zero experience of networking so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys and gals!
Im in abit of trouble trying to setup a wireless network. Part of the problem is that I am many miles away and I've never setup a wifi-netork involving more than one device, that device being a router.

I've attached a jpg which should explain the basics of the problem. This is what I've done so far:

I connected the TL-WA901ND to the router(a Thomson tg787) located in the house, this router couldn't be used simply because the SSID and its password is locked, and we sometimes have people renting the bottom floor and we would prefer a better SSID and a changable password for the network. The first TL-WA901ND(will call this one TL1(AP) from now on, the other being TL2(RP)) is set to operate as Access Point, having a different SSID and password for the network, and it works great. However, when I try to set the other one, TL2(RP) to repeater mode, with the TL1(AP) and that SSID/MAC as "target", it doesn't seem to work. I've tried using bot the repeater mode and the universal repeater mode but none of them seem to do the job.
Is is possible to repeat the signal of an access point or does it have to be a router?
The SSID and the WPAkey of the repeater is set to the same as the access point, is that correct?
The access point is not the one handing out IP-addresses, the router is still acting as the DHCP-server, is that correct?
Are there any other setups using these devices that could achieve the same thing?, using some k... Read more

A:Using a repeater to extend the signal of an Access Point, both a TP-Link TL-WA901ND

I've never set up a Repeater, so blind leading the blind may not help much.

Is is possible to repeat the signal of an access point or does it have to be a router?Click to expand...

Depends on the Repeater and Access Point. I didn't check the manual, but I would expect that two of the same device would play nice together.

The SSID and the WPAkey of the repeater is set to the same as the access point, is that correct?Click to expand...

To my surprise I learned recently that the Repeater (at least some of them) can broadcast a different SSID. But certainly you have to specify that of the Access Point in order to make the connection between them. I'd get it working w/o encryption first. In some cases you have to specify the MAC Address of the other device--again, I did not check the manual for your units.

The access point is not the one handing out IP-addresses, the router is still acting as the DHCP-server, is that correct?Click to expand...

Yes, definitely.

Guys, I am having a hard time configuring my Access point. I have a DSL Router connected to our telephone line and it works fine wirelessly, Yesterday I purchased TP LINK Router to configure as Access Point to extend wireless signal up to the second floor. Now, I am wondering, should I do some re-configuration on my DSL Router before configuring my TP Link Router? Guys, Please share your thoughts and if you have knowledge on how to configure my 2nd Router to my Wifi Networks that will help.
NOTE: I followed the user guide manual that came with my TP LINK router but it is no USE. I just need to know if should I reconfigure my 1st Router in order to communicate with my 2nd Router.

Thanks,

A:How To CONFIGURE TP LINK ROUTER as ACCESS POINT in an existing network

How are you connecting the two routers together?

An access point needs to have a static IP, and it needs to be outside of the DHCP range that your router is using. For example, if your router assigns IP addresses from 192.168.1.150 to 192.168.1.200, you need to have the access point IP address below 150 or above 200. I like to keep the access points close to the router, so I usually use 192.168.1.10 for the first access point.

What model router did you buy? TP Link makes a few, and knowing the exact model will help us help you.

I just purchased a wireless router (Linksys) to set up as a wireless access point connected via an ethernet cable to another Linksys wireless router that is connected to my DSL modem. I know I need to connect LAN port to LAN port, but do I need a "straight through" or a "switched/crossover" cable? As I have done some reading, some directions say straight, others say switched, some don't say at all. I just want to be sure I don't have a cabling issue. Thanks in advance for any information.

Well, a crossover cable will certainly work. If either end of the routers have auto-MDX ports, a straight patch cable will work as well.

In a few days time I will be changing my ISP in the UK from Sky to BT.

BT are providing me with their newest wireless router free of charge as part of the deal and I'll be using that to set up my wireless network, which will consist of an HP Pavilion desktop, a Toshiba laptop, a Sony Vaio laptop, an HP wireless printer and a Samsung HDTV.

This means my Sky wireless router is surplus to requirements, so I was wondering if I could convert it to a wireless access point to improve the range of my BT wireless network.

If so, how do I go about it?

I've read a couple of supposedly easy-to-understand articles on Google and have to say they left me more confused than ever.

Is there a straightforward way of doing this?

Hello,

See if you can follow my own Tutorial on adding an additional router to your existing one.

Please let us know how that works.
