Model: TL-WA901ND  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: The latest

Hello guys,

let me explain you my issue.

i have a modem router Wi-Fi in a room in my house and I pulled one Lan cable to the other side of the house where I had in mind to connect the tp link in order to extend the wireless range. I don't want that tp link will work as typical range extender since I would like to benefit of the lan cable. Said that, who's Mode I have to select and how I have to configurare it properly? Thank you so muc

here the connection flow

 

main modem router WiFi --> lan cable to the other side of the house --> TP-Link connect to the lan port

You can customize the wireless settings to improve the wireless performance, like wireless channel and channel width.

 

You can use channel 1, 6 and 11 and channel width 20MHz. 

 

Besides, you can relocate the TL-WA901ND and change its antenna position.

 

Good day.
