I've been trying to use my TP-Link TL-WR740N as a WDS Bridge (range extender); I've followed guides. I've enabled WDS, scanned for the network, put in all the network information, changed IP address to ( being the default gateway of the base router), and disabled DHCP.  After all that I reconnect to the base router and try to access Connection gets refused. I bring the router back and attempt to change settings with a LAN cable, and Windows cannot identify the router. I've run out of ideas to fix it. Just looking for some help to get it working. I'm not sure if I missed a setting or if this router just isn't compatible (even though it has the setting). I really need this to work.
