    TL-WA901ND Repeater with different network and different (SSID)

    Region: Argentina


    Model: TL-WA901ND


    Hardware Version: V4


    Firmware Version: 3.16.9 Build 151029 Rel.53634n












    Hello everyone!


    My problem is the next:


    I need to connect to another router that provides internet and has DHCP enabled, wirelessly, but on a different network and use it with another SSID.


    Teams of the 2 nets DO NOT see each other.




    Router With Internet and DHCP Active IP: 192.168.100.x


    My AP TL-WA901ND IP: 192.168.10.x


    I did not find a way to connect and they are in different networks, since if I activate the DHCP of the TL-WA901ND in mode "Bridge whit AP" both fall "


    Bridge with AP
    Does this team have limitations to do this job?


    Conclusion:




    I need:


    1 - The Internet Router is in the IP network: 192.168.100.1 with DHCP Enabled and SSID "xxx1".


    2 - My AP TL-WA901ND is in the IP network 192.168.10.1 with DHCP Enabled and SSID "xxx2".


    3 - My AP must be connected wirelessly to the Router with Internet, and Distribute it in my own NETWORK.


    4 - The teams of the 2 Networks, DO NOT see each other.


    I await your comments.






    Thank you so much

    I think so that you need WISP mode in your network staff. Typical access point, like WA901ND, doesn't have NAT mode.
    I know, my English isn't perfect but I'm trying

    For me I may try 2 way,

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Plan A, (may not work)

    Source of Internet or Gateway (DHCP)- 192.168.100.x (Group A)
    -
    Offsite with TL-WA901ND as "Bridge with AP"
    Sample:
    Survey and connect to Gateway 192.168.100.x (Group A)
    Local Wireless setting to "AnynameUlike" and WPA password stuff
    Network setting to "Statis IP"
    IP setting to 192.168.10.1 / 255.255.255.0 (or any you want for Group B)
    DHCP Server enable
    -
    Then Group B just connect to TL-WA901ND SSID

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Plan B. Put one old or cheap router behind TL-WA901ND. Idea is,

    Source of Internet or Gateway (DHCP)- 192.168.100.x (Group A)
    -
    Offsite with TL-WA901ND as "Client mode" and bridge with Gateway 192.168.100.x (Group A)
    Sample:
    TL-WA901ND (Client mode)
    Survey and connect to Gateway 192.168.100.x (Group A)
    IP setting to "Static", IP address to 192.168.100.254 (or any unused)
    DHCP to Disable
    -
    Connect via Ethernet of TL-WA901ND to Internet port (WAN port) of old or cheap router
    Sample:
    Router LAN IP 192.168.10.x (Group B)
    Internet Connection setting to "Static"
    IP 192.168.100.154 (or any unused)
    Gateway 192.168.100.x (as Group A Internet access Gateway, sample 192.168.100.1)
    DNS 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4 (or any of your local DNS)
    WiFi setting for Group B (SSID and WPA password stuff)
    -
    Then all Group B connect to the old or cheap router SSID.

    Best regard.
