Hello we have a TP-Link TD-W8960n router connected to our ADSL connection.

it has a wireless ssid of "canteen" with no security & dhcp is enabled (range is 192.168.0.100 - 254) using ip 192.168.0.1

i have setup the TL-WA801n as a universal repeater, done a "site survey" it picks up "canteen" aswell as the mac address to the router. (ip is 192.168.0.2)

dhcp is disabled on the TL-WA801n

i can not detect the wireless network (canteen) even sat right next to the WA801n, but if go to near the W8960n i can pick up the ssid

im confused!

thanks

if i do a ping within the TL-WA801n to www.google.com it fails

anyone any ideas?
