Model: TL-WR940N  
Hardware Version: V6
Firmware Version: 3.20.1 Build 200316 Rel.34392n (4555)

I am trying to extend the wifi coverage of a Huawei B612 233 4G router with a TL-WR940N in range extender mode. The TP Link is able to detect the Huawei and establish a connection (light is blue), however there is no internet access.

 

However, I also own a third wifi router. If I link it by ethernet cable to the Huawei AND connect the TP Link to router 3 in range extender mode internet works fine.

 

What could be the problem preventing the TP Link from connecting directly to the Huawei router? Would be grateful for any help.

Hi @Ogon555   

Thanks for reaching out to us. 

It is suggested for you to upgraded firmware of your TL-WR940N to the latest one first.

Please refer to this guide to upgrade firmware: How to Upgrade the Firmware on the TP-Link Wi-Fi Routers?

After you upgrade firmware, please try to connect TL-WR940N to your Huawei B612 233 4G router again and see if there will be any difference. 

If TL-WR940N still doesn't have internet, please check if there is any whitelist settings on your Huawei router and TL-WR940N is not in the list. 

And please also connect your phone to TL-WR940N wifi and see what IP address and default gateway you can get. How to find IP address on your devices?

BTW, you mentioned that your TL-WR940N can sccessfully connect to the third router, so may I know what is the model of the third router? Thanks.
