I would like to lớn use my TP-LINK TL-WR740N as a wireless repeater, putting it in another room & connecting to my ISP router using WiFi. Is that possible?

I made it work by connecting it with cables, but I would like to make it wireless.

Thsi answer is WRONG. Sorry about this. Please neglect it.

No, unfortunately you cannot. Your mã sản phẩm only has one wireless interface, while a repeater needs two. A single card repeater will wnd up talking to lớn clients half of the time, & to lớn its base station the other half of the time, thus cutting bandwidth in half.

In fact, its User"s Guide makes no mention of alternative modes lượt thích wireless repeater, range extender, wireless bridge, which are all roughly synonims.

The term WDS does indicate its ability lớn partake in a Wireless Distribution System, however I believe sầu it is meant to lớn indicate that it can act as a base station, not a relay-station as required by the OP.. Besides, in the manual mentioned above, there is no discussion of WDSes.

Yes you can configure your TP-Link WR740N as a repeater/wireless bridge. Following are the basic steps that you need to take to lớn set up one:

Go to wireless settings page of your WR740N router"s web interface, enable the option "Enable WDS Bridging" and cliông chồng Survey.Your bridge router will show you routers to bridge with. Select the appropriate one.Make sure that the selected security settings are the one that match with the router that is connected khổng lồ the ISP.. & provide a password for it.Disable your bridge router"s DHCP & restart the router.

Following these steps should allow you to lớn phối up your WR740N as a repeater. I have been using it as one without any problem so far.

Yes, you can!

According khổng lồ this links provided by TP.. Link, you cvà make the settings. I have multiple TPhường Link routers at trang chính, all configured as WDS repeaters after this settings and entire network is working fine.

Follow this steps:

1. Login into root AP or extended AP and enable WDS under: Wireless -> Wireless Settings.2. Clichồng on Search/Survey button và cliông xã Connect khổng lồ desired SSID Wireless Network.3. On the password input, put your main SSID Wireless password (should be the same) and Save sầu settings.4. Disable DHCP under: Wireless -> Wireless Security.5. Reboot router/APhường.Note:

1. LAN IP of extended router should be different but in the same subnet of the root router;2. The DHCPhường. Server on extended router should be disabled;3. WDS bridging only requires the WDS setting on either the root router or the extended router.note: The accepted answer is incorrect.

Attention!

You can phối a WR740N as a repeater according lớn the instructions given by other users before me but you also have sầu to lớn go khổng lồ the main router và make it aware (there is a special setting that depends of your main router connected directly khổng lồ the internet) your WR740N exists. If you bởi not change anything in the main router your WR740N will only work as a repeater for a while (a few hours or days) và then it will stop unexpectedly.

WR740N does not work elegantly lượt thích a range extender (a NETGEAR for example) where there is no need khổng lồ modify any settings in the main router.
