simply enable wireless, set ssid and other securities as per the requirement. By default it will act as Access point

To work as an Access Point, it must be connected to the main wireless router with an ethernet cable.

The TD-W8960N can be used as a Wireless Bridge, but not as a Repeater.
The TL-WA5210G can be used as a Wireless Bridge or as a Repeater.
The TL-WA801ND can be used as a Wireless Bridge or as a Repeater.

So if you're using the TL-WA5210G or TL-WA801ND as a hard wired access point, swap the position and function of one of those with the TD-W8960N.
