Specs: Windows 7, 2.5/6

Hi All,

I have TP Link Wireless Router i attached TP Link access with it. The problem is am unable to see the attached Access Point in the Router, so that i could see the other users who are connected with that AP. Internet through that access point is available for all the users.

Control Panel > Network & Sharing Centre
Click the blue "See full map" in top-right corner of window.

That shows me every device that's currently connected to my network.

The AP should have it's own management interface. Properly configured and joined to your LAN, you should be able to access it direclty via your web browser and it's LAN address.

You did configure it with a static IP address before connecting it to the router....right?

If not, disconnect it, reset it to factory defaults and reconfigure it. This time, check the DHCP scope and choose an IP outiside of it (to avoid any chance of an IP conflict) and make sure you give it your router's LAN IP as it's gateway address. Configure the WLAN and plug it into a LAN port on the router and you should be able to access it.

example:

Router:
LAN IP: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

DHCP Enabled = Yes
DHCP Scope = 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.200

Access Point:
LAN IP: 192.168.0.2
SM: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Dear Curt.

Thanks for the Solutions.

I m facing one more issue. I am using WIFI in my room 4 other users a connected. What happens is i suddenly get disconnected from WIFI while all other users remain connected. I wont connect until i restart the Router.

Secondly, Some times internet gets very slow. When i ping gateway 192.168.0.1 it shows ms very high i.e 584, 1021, 400.
