Hello all, I am trying to setup my home network using a Unifi AP and a TP-Link WR841ND wireless router. What I am trying to do is use the 841ND in WDS mode to act as a bridge to extend the signal from the Unifi AP. I have followed all of the instructions provided by TP Link to switch the router to run in WDS mode and I can get to the point where the 841ND is broadcasting the new SSID, but I am not able to connect using any of my wireless devices.
Overall topography looks like this:
Comcast XB3 (modem/Wi-Fi router) -> switch -> POE injector -> Unifi AP
Currently the Wi-Fi is turned off on the Comcast XB3, but it is still working as a router handling DHCP assignment. Could the problem be that the TP Link router can't run in WDS mode to an AP, and will only work in this config to another router? If so, would I be better off turning the Wi-Fi back on on the Comcast box, keeping the Unifi AP in the network and run that and the TP Link router in WDS mode bridging the Comcast Wi-Fi signal?
