Configuring Repeater mode access points TP-Link TL-WA701ND and TL-WA801ND
Again we walk around with the repeater! In this case we let DD-WRT teams and let's focus on other household devices such as TP-Link. In recent years, the brand TP-Link has been characterized as a relatively inexpensive and affordable brand. As you can see over the next tutorial, settings for repeating a signal (receive and resend Wifi) is much simpler. The present manual is valid for the following models:
To access the configuration of these devices is necessary to set the IP address on your network card within range of your computer network. In this case we better eg 192.168.1.10. Gateway To use the device's IP is 192.168.1.254.
After setting the network card, connect the device to the computer network cable, and we hope that this indicates that the device is connected.
Once connected open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome ...) and type in the address bar the device IP 192.168.1.254. When you press Enter a dialog box appears where we will get the username and password of the device, in this case User: admin Password: admin.
When you press enter to accept the configuration of the device.
First in the "Network" we set the gateway router (Gateway), which is the IP address of your ADSL router, usually 192.168.1.1. In the event that the ADSL router's IP address as 192.168.0.1 was another, we should also change the direction of the repeater to within that range, for example 192.168.0.254. Also with the network card of the team, would put for example 192.168.0.10. And go back to enter setup, this time through the IP address 192.168.0.254.
After changing the gateway click on "Save", wait for data to be saved and go to the Wireless section. In the first section, "Wireless Settings" modify the parameters as in the image, we set the "Operation Mode" and select Universal Repeater our country "Region".
Once done click on the button "Survey" to find the networks detected by the computer and we see a new window with a table like this:
Select the network you are trying to connect and click "Connect". By doing this we return to the setup and we checked that box, "MAC of AP" MAC address appears in our ADSL router. Click on "Save" to save changes and go to "Wireles Security" where we have to tell the repeater the password to the wifi network to which you want to connect. We must tell you if the password is WEP or WPA and write in the box provided.
Once you have entered the password, press "Save" to save changes and press "Click here" to reset the router, click on "Reboot" and accept.
If we followed the steps correctly, when you restart the router and will repeat the wireless network signal. This router repeats the signal with the same name and same password as the original wifi network.
