Hello,

I just bought a week ago the TL-WA850RE as I needed a wireless range extender with WDS function (I have an ASUS RT-56U router that accepts WDS mode and I need this for parental control).
When I setup the WA850RE as WDS - with Static IP address and disabled DHCP - but I cannot connect to the internet via WA850RE connection. If I go into ASUS router range, everything works just fine.
Also, if I setup Universal mode everything just works fine, but I cannot use my ASUS parental control functionality.

Is there any solution to make WA850RE work with WDS?

The “universal repeater mode” use the 3-address frame to transform data; while in “WDS repeater mode” , each data frame contains 4 address fields.
Seems that this ASUS doesn't support 4-address frame function.
And the 3-adress technic will change the client's MAC address, so parental control which is based on MAC address won't work.
