Here's a referemce that you could use for configuring the WDS.

 

Remember that IP of the C6 router should be in the same subnet as the main router.

When you set up WDS following the reference I sent, did you check in (C6) Advanced > Status > Wireless to see the WDS status ?

When the WDS status is Run, it means WDS bridging is successfully built.

Exclamation mark means you don't have an Internet connectivity.

DHCP should be OFF for sure. What's the main router model ?

You are using 2.4 GHz band for WDS right ?

Read through this thread and see if you are affected by the same problem, I believe the user have successfully resolved that at the end.

Not working

 

My problem will be solve if you can give this firmware version 

 

On my c6 router admin panel

There are missing options as compared to this video

 

https://youtu.be/QCCkT19tj8A

 

On this video 

In operation mode

switch to range extender

 

After that goto wifi 2.4ghz or 5ghz 

And click scan to search other nearby wifi router for range extender

 

But on my c6 router there's no scan options

 

Can you give that firmware please

This video refers to some other model TP-Link device. Archer C6 v2 doesn't have Range extender mode - only Router and AP mode, thus you don't have Scan button in your wireless settings interface. All the FW that I have access are publicly available via TP-Link's web portal.

Have you read through the thread I mention in details ? There are couple of tweaks that may help you with the WDS issue. WDS is your only option.
