I used the TP-Link AP in Client Mode for my desktop and it worked perfectly. Now I am in a home office with ethernet and when connected I cannot browse to any web pages. Email works, I can RDP into the desktop from my work laptop and Windows Updates work. DNS works because a ping resolves to an IP address, and an NSLOOKUP works as expected. I have cleared the ROUTE table and rebooted, I have deleted the DHCP lease from the server and I have 'forgotten' the device. I have set static IP details pointing to 126.96.36.199 as DNS and the router as gateway to bypass anything on my network (I have a Rasberry Pi running PiHole and Ubiquiti equipment) and plugged directly into the router.
Interestingly if I plug the AP back into the desktop as it was before, web browsing works fine. I can only imagine that the desktop is expecting to use the AP as a gateway or route or similar, but from what I have looked at this is not the case.
Can anyone help with this?
