i bought an Tl WA901N (yes N not ND) for use in client mode for giving a smart tv internet.
The existing WLan has a dhcp server and i cant adjust the server.
When i setup the acess point it let me choose only static or Smartip DHCP. When i choose smart IP the acess points acts as a DHCP server but only with the Network 192.168.0.0 in the wlan i see then the acess point with 192.168.0.254 adress in a 10.0.0.0 network. on the lan device i get a 192.168.0.0 adress. I cant acess the gateway of course its different network. Why the ap not take adresses from existing DHCP server? and also it doesnt give DHCP request over the AP.
When i configure a static adress the client on lan port cant even acess the AP more. Also the clients need a ip over Dhcp from my real gateway.
in easy words the device is useless for client mode cause it doenst work in a network other than 192.168.0.0 :/
how come to adverse client mode when it doesnt work in most networks?
maybe someone has a solution?
firmware is updated to the newest
I would also have a WR940N too its a router so it could handle l3 conversion and could have 2 seperate networks. But im not sure if client mode would work on that anyone tried with standard routers with wan ports?
