tp-link model: tl-wr940n installation
I am running with ubuntu 20.04 (linux)
I have a tp-link model: tl-wr940n and I am trying to set it up. So far its been a disaster. I made a run at it and suddenly it told me I had tried too many times and I had to wait 2 hours. My problem was that I was getting asked questions and I had no idea how to answer them. When I tried it told me I was wrong. That dance went on until it didn't. Oh, when I answered one with the right answers it just skipped to another before it threw me out. Then I read everything I could about this thing and tried again. As I was trying to get to the questions it suddenly showed me the tp-link network that I could selecty for my internet access. The problem is that there was nothing in it, as far as I could tell. I was wondering what it was giving but my wifi took it. Then I tried the internet and nothing happened. It said it had an excellent connection but no internet.
When I hooked it up I wasn't sure where to the connection from the main router (ARRIS SURFboard SBG6900AC Docsis 3.0 I think) I currently don't have it in the single blue spot but in one of the 4 orange places. When I had it in the single blue one it seemed to me that it was somehow messing with the network and I lost the internet until I turned it off and re-started my system router. I REALLY need some help. My thought is to reset it back to it was and start over. If I ever get back to that place in http://tplinkwifi.net/ I need to know just what they are asking for in the 2 (that I experienced, there may be ore) questions about names and passwords. All I wanted to do was to move my house wi-fi past one wall with cable and then let my tp-link send out the network stronger than my router so I can get a little more speed.
Any help would REALLY be appreciated.
