      TP-LINK TL-WR841N as a Bridge to Sky Fibre Router

      Morning I amsorry if this has been asked a 1000 times but im struggling a bit here. Iam trying to bridge the TP Link Router to the Sky fibre router to enable anetwork printer upstairs to be accessed from anywhere in the house on thenetwork.

      I have set theTP link router with an Ip address 192.168.0.254 The Sky router is192.168.0.1. I have used the function inthe TP Link router to see other routers and connect to the Sky router that way.I have changed the TP Link so that it is the same ssid, and wpa key as the skyrouter. But im still unable to get a connection between the routers going. Ivetried pining 192.16.0.1 when connected to the TP link via ethernet and viceversa with the sky router.

      Ive also setthe default gateway as 192.168.0.1 in the TP Link.

      Im pulling myhair out.

      Anyone able to help?

      Two things which may help:

      London Hair Transplant Clinic | Our world-class surgical team consists of fully trained doctors and technicians

      ...and a guide to setting up the 2nd router (half of which it sounds like you have done already, but just check through the rest):

      On purpose I broke the steps down to include a little testing with the routers next to each other. Could I ask that you do this as well? It rules out wiring issues.

      It worked fine connected up with ethernet cable and also worked ok when the two routers were disconnected.
      once i switched it off and moved it it stopped working.

      Are you trying to use the TL-WR841N as a wi-fi extender?

      Is there a physical connection between the TL-WR841N and your Sky router?
