  • To create a Bridge connection on your Tp link archer C7 router kindly follow these steps:-
    A Wireless Distribution System (WDS) is a system that enables the wireless interconnection of access points in a wireless network.
    1.Open the web browser and type in http://tplinkwifi.net to login the Web Management Page of the extended router. The username and password are both admin.
    2.Go to Network -> LAN and change the LAN IP to a different IP address but still in the same subnet as the root router. Save the setting and reboot the extended router.
    3.Log into the web page with new IP Address. Go to Wireless 2.4GHz – Wireless Settings. Check Enable WDS Bridging. Then the page will show like below.
    4.Click Survey. On the pop-up window, find the SSID of your root router and click Connect.
    5.The root router’s SSID and BSSID have been filled automatically. Then please configure the security settings Key type and Password to match the ones on the root router.
    6.Click Save button, then a window will pop out to inform you to change the channel. Click OK, it will change automatically. Please do NOT reboot the router.
    7.Go to DHCP- DHCP Settings page. Select Disable DHCP Server, and click Save button and reboot the router.
    8.All settings required by WDS function is completed. You can make a simple check by the Ping utility.
