I have very basic network knowledge. I am trying to connect a TD-W8980 to a Deco M5 system as a wireless access point. I am connecting an OKI printer to the TD-W8980 via an Ethernet cable.
It has the latest firmware and I have followed instructions on https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/440/ to set up a WDS.
However, the printer cannot be seen by the Deco M5 system. I cannot print to it either, but I can ping the printer IP and connect via a browser by entering the IP address. I've tried "discovering" the printer on the network, this doesn't work either.
If I log onto the TD-W8980, I cannot see the printer connected to it as a client.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
