Model: TL-WR841N  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

A few months ago I installed a TL-WR841N as an access point for a room that gets poor reception from the wireless router. I just replaced that router - an old Airport - with an AX-3000. That works fine. But now when I go to TP Link it defaults to managing the new router, and I'm unable to manage the access point. While I don't have an urgent need to do that now, it would be great to know how if and when I need to. Any advice welcome!

Hello @rxb 

 

Are you managing the two devices in the local network or remotely? If you are managing them in the local network, please check and ensure they are not using the same IP address for the management, you may change the IP of the WR841N to 192.168.0.2 if the IP of the AX3000 is 192.168.0.1.

 

You can refer to the story below to check which case yours belong to, then check the solutions accordingly:

If you are managing them from a remote network, you can check this story instead:
