Model: TL-WR940N
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Good morning,

 

I am just performing a first installation of WR940N

 

Proceeded with a Quick Setup as Access Point.

Apparently everything worked fine, WIFI is detected by devices but every one of them is highligting "No Internet Connection"

 

Router (OEM) already checked and working properly through Ethernet

 

Thanks in advance for any support

 

Massimo

Hey Massimo

 

This could be that the AP is on a different subnet from the router.

 

When you connect directly to the router what is the IP address?    Compare this to the wireless IP address.   My feeling is the AP is handing out a DHCP address on a different subnet to the main router, that way you can connect wirelessly ok but it wont work

 

If this is the case change the IP address on the AP to match that of the router...   example ... router is 192.168.1.1    set AP as  192.168.1.2  

 

It might also be worth disabling the DHCP server on the AP and just letting the router hand out the addresses.

 

Hopefully this helps

@Philbert , thanks

 

Followig your advise I made one step forward.

 

Now I am able to connect to Internet through WIFI with my desktop and one mobile (on the good side).

 

On the wrong side:

 

- I am no more able to connect to internet with Ethernet cable

- Trying and connect another mobile, I encounter error "No IP addresses available"

 

Any hint?

Ok so it could be that your ISP Router doesnt have a DHCP..

 

Checking your currently connected device, what address are they getting and are they DHCP?   Do you know if your ISP router has a DHCP?   

 

 

If it doesnt turn on the DHCP on the AP but set the range to start at 192.168.1.3 onwards
