I bought a TP-Link WA850RE range extender want to install DD-WRT Please help. Ready to install test version also.
Hardware Details: RAM: ESMT M13S2561616A
Flash: Spansion FL032PIF
SoC: Atheros AR9341-AL1A
so its similar to WR841v8 without switch. so this unit could be a start. to the fact that wan is disabled by default and the single eth port might be detected as wan, it might result in a non working lan at the beginning. but this could be corrected via wlan.
Installed test build, based on WR841NDv8 r21286 (Thanks LOM)
It is working fine in client mode(Connection speed is 130 MB/s). I am using and testing from two weeks. No any problem found in client mode or any other settings except "Client Bridge Mode".
In Client Bridge Mode the devise is dis-connecting and reconnecting with primary router every 40 Sec. Note:After installation of DD-Wrt the alone port of devise is configured as WAN. only way to connect the devise is Wifi then disabled WAN and assign WAN port as LAN.
Actually I want to use this router as Client Bridge! any advise.
