Starlink and TP-Link Archer A7

 

I bought a TP-Link Archer A7 in 2019 and a pair of configured Ubiquiti Nanostations. At that time I had a satellite Internet Provider. Their router supplied wired and wi-fi to house and the Pair of Nanos transmitted wifi from the POE wired Nano1 (transmitter) to a cabin about 100 yards away which had the second Nano (Nano2). Nano 2 was POE wired into cabin and TP-Link Archer A7. It worked perfectly.

 

This year I upgraded to Starlink. I purchased the Starlink ethernet adapter and have not been able to create that same previously working network.

 

I have reset the Archer A7 and the two Nano antennas but that has not helped. Ubiquiti has not been helpful.

 

++From Ubiquiti Support: Based on the description, it appears that Nanostations are not getting IP addresses from the DHCP server on the Starlink router. Both the Nanostations and Starlink are on different subnets that could be causing the issue. The TP-Link router may not be configured to bridge the two subnets, which means that the Nanostations cannot communicate with each other. To fix this, you will need to configure the TP-Link router to bridge the two subnets.
 
if still having the problem, you can try resetting the Nanostations and let them set to DHCP mode and check if NanoStation is getting IP from Starlink.
 
Another possible reason might be, The TP-Link router may not be compatible with the Starlink network. If this is the case, you may need to use a different router. ++

I definitely need some help getting my cabin link back up and running.

Hi, do you mean your network topology is like this: Starlink router---Nano 1)))(((Nano 2---Archer A7?

If so, please disconnect the Archer A7 from the network, connect a computer to the Nano 2 via Ethernet cable to see if internet works fine. If not, it would be stll the Nanos issue or Startlink network issue.

 

Or if possible, you could also bring the Archer A7 next to the starlink router and check if they could work together, please refer to this thread to check if the physical connection and configurations are correct:
