Get 2nd TP-LINK WiFi Range Extender to work in big house

Specs: Windows 7
Hi! If someone could help me I would be really grateful its been to days and I cant make the internet work. I've configured the tp link as access point through, I've done it before and i could make it work but this time i added another TP-LINK Wireless Range Extender TL-WA730RE so i would have two access points ( the house is really big) the problem is since I've tried to add the new tp link none of them are working, i mean i get them in my wireless network connection separately from the router and it says i have internet but cant navigate either get on Skype...

I've download the firmware from tp link and still doesn't work...

Any ideas? When i see the tutorials should be such an easy thing to do...

Assuming you meant 192.........what's the LAN IP of your SOHO router? What is the scope of your DHCP server? Are you able to ping the LAN IP of this device from a computer on the LAN?

Please post the exact IP addressing of the extender (including Gateway, DNS etc) and also do the same from a working computer connected to your network.

Your wireless access points need to have distinct IP addresses in the same range as your router and each other, typically a couple of digits off like:
Wireless access point 1:
Wireless access point 2:
but nearly anything in the same sequence like is fine, I just like to use lower numbers for routers and access points so non-fixed ones will end up higher. The router will need to be low since all other will be assigned as higher (and I assume needs to be higher).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
