So I'm trying to extend my wireless network (uses a thomson modem/router) using a AP acting as a client and a router to broadcast a new SSID but the problem is I can't get it to work, DHCP is enabled on the thomson router, the AP acting a client is a D-link and when directly plugging it to my pc with a cable it works fine my pc receives an ip and the internet works fine, but when I connect my router (TP-link) to the AP (D-link) it doesn't work, it broadcasts the new SSID but no internet, and I tried turning on the dhcp and off and also tried manually configuring the IP of the router like a client of the main one and also it doesn't work, so what am I doing wrong ? do I need to APs instead of AP and router to extend it with another SSID or what I have is enough ?
This is what I'm trying to do:
(THOMSON ROUTER DHCP)-->--wireless-->--(D-LINK AP CLIENT)-->--wired-->--(TP-LINK ROUTER)
I'm sure that the D-LINK AP is working fine and when connecting it to a pc instead of TP-LINK router it's working fine.
thanks in advance.
