Model :

Hardware Version :

Firmware Version :

ISP :

I have bought several of these in the past (v1 and v2). Now I have bought a new one (v5). I have upgraded it to the latest firmware (170905). I have configured it in multi-ssid mode, when configuring the network settings in static ip there's no gateway option! The same happens in Access Point mode. This setting was present in previous versions, without it the access point can't be managed from other networks. This is really frustrating.

I got the same gateway issue with the V5.
I don't use DHCP so the gateway option is useless for me.

Hello,

the "V5" is the hardware version. I tried to upgrade for the last firmware but still no "gateway" option.

I searched for an alternative firmware (like OpenWrt) but nothing for the V5 ....

No gateway option before updating, that was one of the reasons to try an update.

internet should still work without gateway I think, because the main router will assign ip address for those clients, so the gateway for the clients is still the main router

Sorry to tell you that the TL-WA801ND V5 has no gateway option existed when you change it to static IP.

 

While if you want to monitor this device, you can use dynamic IP for it and reserve an IP address for it on the main router to do so. 

 

Good day.

hello,

 

IP-Reservation on the DHCP-Server is only a workaround.

Not everybody has the possibility to configure IP-Reservations on the DHCP-Server.

Is it planned to get the gateway-configuration on Hardware-Version 5  with static-IP-Configuration?

 

It's really disappointing that TP-Link brings a new version of a existing device with such a elemantary missing configuration-option.

Every network-device with static-IP-configuration needs the possibility to configure a default-Gateway!

Must be a really bad dream to omit this configuration-field in Version 5.

 

best regards

Mathew
