Solved how to connect tp-link td-w8901g via lan to another router

Specs: Windows 7
Hi everyone,

I would like to connect my TP-Link TD-W8901G router to an optical modem via LAN cable, to be able to use TP-Link's WiFi. I cannot setup anyhow the router to get IP address from the modem. Called the support to check the IP but was told that it's dynamic and they are unable to tell.

The router has a bridge mode which I think is what needed.

Also this TP-Link router is ADSL router and I wander if it is meant for these type of connection.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Or, you could click on my name above and then scroll down to the "how-to" section and read my guide on adding a second router.

You'll want to look at the scenario wherein you interconnect the two routers using the LAN port to LAN port method.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the captain of my soul.

Download the manual (as above), you will have to set it up as a wireless access point to the existing network. Generally this is straight forward but the DSL features will probably need to be disabled as well as DHCP, and setting the IP address fixed to the same range as your primary router.It all should be in the manual.

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