TL-WA5210G Access Point - Client Connection

Region : UnitedStates

Model : TL-WA5210G

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version : 4.4.8 Build 130502 Rel.61441n

ISP :


Hello All,

Actually I have tried too much to configure (Point to Point Bridge) Connection or (Client - Access Point) between 2 TL-WA5210G devices or two TL-WA7510N devices but I always fail although I have followed up the procedure in this link http://www.tp-link.com/en/article/?faqid=498 strictly but still having problem.

I will list my current configuration hope someone can help me.

I have two TL-WA5210G Devices.

Device 1 Connected to my internet gateway and DHCP server by wire connection and configured as an access point.
My Gateway IP is 10.1.0.254 which is acting also as a DHCP
My first TL-WA5210G which is connected to the same segment have the IP Address 10.1.0.229, Subnet Mask 255.0.0.0 and Gateway 10.1.0.254

The second segment of the network contains the second TL-WA5210G device configured as a Client with IP 10.1.0.227, Subnet 255.0.0.0 and Gateway 10.1.0.254
The second Device is connected through a switch to a PC. The PC is set to take IP Address from DHCP.

Both Devices have exactly the same security settings WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK with the same password. My internet gateway is a Mikrotik Router which is acting also as a DHCP Server.

Although the PC can pick up the IP Address from the DHCP server which is located at the other segment which means that there is a connectivity to the other segment through the Access Points Sets but can't access my router.

I can open both Access Points configuration in the browser through IPs 10.1.0.227 and 10.1.0.229 and I can ping both from the PC without a problem but I can't ping my internet gateway 10.1.0.254 or accessing the internet from the PC.

Kindly help me solving this problem please.

1-Gateway 10.1.0.254 suppose thats the Microtick gateway, if correct, you posted
first TL-WA5210G IP Address 10.1.0.229,
second TL-WA5210G IP Address 10.1.0.227 you did not post your DHCP range from Mikrotik are those IPs out of the Mikrotik DHCP range.
2-Foget about Bridge mode use AP-Client, Tuto here http://www.tp-link.com/en/article/?faqid=318

Yes you are correct and both IP addresses are execluded on the DHCP Range on Mikrotik Router.

This is a result of a ping from my PC which is wire connected to the 10.1.0.227 Client Access Point

Any help please?

Threads are words, like the pings, to understand your issue, upload screens of AP and Client,
Status
Operation Mode
LAN
Wireless Settings
Wireless Mode Settings
Wireless Security
Wireless Advanced Settings
The Gurus post, when you are setting a PTP (point to point) or Link, first get the link without security, once you get it, then enable security, i will add the next line
you posted
The second Device is connected through a switch to a PC. The PC is set to take IP Address from DHCP

don`t use the switch, untill you solve the issue
From your post, my point of view, you have the link, i see a Microtik firewall rule

Thank you very much danymarc

Your hits helped me. The problem was in Mikrotik as you suggested. I was setting ARP static rules with the mac addresses of the PCs which after connecting the Access Point as a client all PCs behind the Access Point connected with the MAC address of the Access Point instead of their real MAC Address.

Now I could configure the client configuration. I will try the Point to Point Bridge and come back if I found a problem.
