I recently purchased a Tp-link tl-wr841n to use as a WAP in addition to my main router. I also flashed dd-wrt on it. The wireless devices connected to it are working fine and are getting IP's from the main router, but I am having an issue getting a connection with the wired devices.

 

This is how I set up the access point. I also attached a screeshot of the configuration.

Local IP: 192.168.11.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.11.1 (main router)
Local DNS: 192.168.11.1

 

Anyone know what the issue could be?

 

Thanks.

You say you're having an issue, what is the issue? Not getting IP addresses? Have you done an ipconfig /release and /renew? Are they getting a 169 address?


Hope this helps thumbup.gif

The wireless devices are working fine, but the wired devices connected to the new AP seem to have an issue getting IPs. It seems like they are being assigned an IP and then quickly getting disconnected and getting a 169 address instead. I tried doing ipconfig /release and /renew, but nothing seems to be working.

 

If I access the main router, it does show that it has assigned the devices IPs, but when I do an ip config on the actual PCs it shows a 169 address.

Where would I find that info?  I just attached a screenshot from my main router. I just turned on the PC connected to the AP. When I accessed my main router, it showed that it assigned the device an IP of 192.168.11.152, but it quickly disappeared from the list. It seems  like maybe the devices are getting an IP and than quickly losing connection.

The dhcp server on the main router setup page would be with the lan setup

That's 24 hours so that is good.  What is the ip scope?  That is the range of ips available for dhcp to hand out.

OK.  Well we know the amount of lease time and scope are not the issues.

 

Might try having the cable from the first router go to a lan port on the WAP and see if that makes a difference to the wired connections.
