TL-WR941ND as Repeater for a DLINK DSL-2750B

Region : Argentina

Model : TL-WR1043ND

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version :

ISP :


My ISP changed my TP-Link wireless router (TL-WR941ND) for a D-LINK one (DSL-2750B). I want to use my "old" TP-Link as a Repeater (WDS Bridge ?). Both are WDS capable - at least have all configuration options.

I configurated both correctly, same LAN Sub-net, Same Channel, the WR941ND (secondary-repeater) with DHCP disabled, correct MAC-address mapping.
During configuration, both found each other, using survey options, everything OK.
After reboot (both), something does not go right. Connected with my lap-top via wire to the WR941ND, i see in the status page (on browser) the WDS searching, asking for authorisation, but no connection happens.

searching in different posts arround the web, most people say that this only works well with devices (routers, AP, Bridges) from same manufacturer, but before i build a d-liink for this purpose, i want to try all possibilities.

WDS doesn't work between tp-link and d-link. You have to install Gargoyle on WR941N and Wireless Bridge/Repeater mode.

Cannot load Gargoyle, tried several versions and files always getting following Error:

Error code: 18005
Upgrade unsuccessfully because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name.


Also it's not clear to me if it's V2 or V3 (Hardware Version = WR941N v2/v3 00000000)

What has the file name to do with the version? :confused:

However, I could load DD-WRT firmware, but configuration is also not easy - so many options and configurations - and i gave up with DD-WRT.

But still hope to get a good hint

With DD-WRT, the simplest solution for you is to use the "Repeater Bridge" mode....
