Model: TL-WA850RE  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 3.15.8 Build 150127 Rel.39463n

Hello. 

 

    I need tor transform this range extender in access point (create a wireless network from a Ethernet router cable connection). The issue is that I see that in the instructions and tutorials it tells me that I have to "Click the Mode button on the upper-right corner, select Access Point and click Save. Your TL-WA830RE will reboot to make your changes take effect"...but in my configuration page I don't see this option in mode button (I can choose universal mode, wds mode and proxy mode)...I don't know if this firmware version doesn't allow access point mode. 

Can anyone confirm if it´s possible to create a acces point with this unit? 

 

Firmware Version: 3.15.8 Build 150127 Rel.39463n

Hardware Version: WA850RE v1.2 00000000

Hello @themore 

 

I'm afraid TL-WA850RE does not support Access Point mode (wired to router) , only TL-WA850RE V2 and above hardware version supports AP mode:

You could check some AP mode applied models in guide below: 

How to setup Access Point Mode of Range Extender?
