Hi, Cannot access range extender mode on above router again. Did access it once after playing around with settings and connected to TL-WR940L router /modem set  router up and it worked, to make sure changed SSID and used it for about 30 mins and worked as it should, but when I disconnected to change its position for a better signal around house would not connect again. Have tried everthing I know in last few days but still cant access range extender mode , Followed quick set up guide supplied with W8970 in beguining but no Range extender mode was in menu. Have tried erasing VPI 8 /VCI 35 (Using Movistar Spain with WD8970).  Many Thanks in advance.

The TL-W8980 does not have a specific mode you can choose. What it does have is WDS which the W8980 will connect to the configured band and extend that out. You can only extend one band, not both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

 

Here is the FAQ that will show you how to do it: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/447/
