Region : France

Model : TL-WA801ND

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version : latest

ISP :


Hello,
I have two TL-WA801ND on my network (among other APs).
They're working well, they're connected to the main router and to the internet. They do respond to ping and the statistics are correct.
Problem: at the same time, if I try to reach them with a browser (Firefox, Chromium...), typing the right IP in the address bar as usual, they're unreachable.
Nmap says that the 80/tcp port are sometimes closed, sometimes open. When they're said to be open, connection remains impossible.
I never had this problem with other APs nor with other TP-Link products.
Has someone an idea of what the problem could be?
Thanks.

Two WA801 are configured Static IPs?
If you restart them, can you login?
Tried different computers?

To M Diamond:

Yes, no DHCP on this network, addresses are static.

If you restart them, can you login?

If I restart them physically (power off/on) I get the connection very quickly. The next time I try, nothing more.
(To reach one of the APs I must disassemble the ceiling, the other one is in a room I have no access to. It's no good solution)

Tried different computers?

Yes, tried different computers of this network, different OS...

Thank you for your help.

To fotodamaris :
Why you post they are working well, if they where, you would not be posting for help

They're working well regarding the internet connection they're offer, which is their main job.
They're not working well regarding the possibility to offer a login from a browser, which is boring for the network's admin (me).

How many in total APs work at the same time in your network. Post IPs from main router and from every AP working at same time

As I told M Diamond, there is no DHCP on this network.
Here are the router and the APs:
192.168.0.1 Main router TP-Link TD-W8970 v1
192.168.0.96 TP-Link TL-WA801ND (WDS repeater, the root AP being 192.168.0.98)
192.168.0.97 Cisco / Linksys WAG160Nv2
192.168.0.98 TP-Link TL-WA801ND Access point
192.168.0.99 D-Link DWL2100AP (wireless bridge with 192.168.0.229, subnet side)
192.168.0.100 D-Link DAP-1160 (connected to 192.168.0.99)
192.168.0.229 D-Link DWL2100AP (wireless bridge with 192.168.0.99, router side)
192.168.0.231 TP-Link TL-WR841R
Before using TP-link devices for 192.168.0.96 and 192.168.0.98, we had D-link and Netgear devices, we changed them to improve the throughput. So I don't think the number of APs is the problem.
Everyone of these devices offer good internet connection.
Channels usually don't overlap, as buildings are quite distant. When there is an overlapping, we use different channels. Wireless bridges were set up with dedicated antennas.

Thank you for your help.

Problem solved by new firmware
2015-10-28 19:31:33
Hello,

(I tried what fotodamaris suggested without result, thank you anyway for your help.)

my problem was solved with the firmware 150422.

Its changelog says:
3. Fixed the bug that web interface will not respond to some special HTTP request.

thank you TP-link, I'm happy with that.
