I have used a tplink router as client bridge (routed) and now it just has very frequent ping timeouts and very slow response times. After a while it just says destination host unreachable. I am able to ping both my local routers but no internet connection. what Should I do? I have included the setting and ping screenshot.
Well the signal strength is good, (I guess I was hoping it was something simple such as wireless interference)
If you are on a windows machine instead of ping use tracert command. It is a ping, but instead the ttl values are changed to show the response to each step along the way, so effectively you are pinging each device between yours and the end destination. The reason I thought you could try this is to see if there is a consistent location that causes the loss... Some locations will not respond to pings so it is not perfect.
On your picture it says DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/22/14) std -build 25697, (if that is true I suggest to update), but the screenshots you have provided show a new version.
What happens if you ping the R7000 continuously? Do you get any dropouts?
The other thought I have is on the Router IP (on the TL-WR841ND) under Setup->Basic Setup, to be:
Local IP Address 192.168.69.1/24
Local DNS 0.0.0.0
The main aspect is to change the router Local IP address to be something on a different subnet than the R7000, so for instance if the R7000 is 192.168.X.1/24, then the Local IP Address of the TPLink should be 192.168.Y.1/24 where X does not equal Y

There is some stuff missing here could you supply:
1) is the tplink router running dd-wrt (I'm assuming it is)
2) What is it acting as a client bridge to? I am assuming a wireless router or access point. What is the make and model of that device and is it also running dd-wrt?
