Hello!

 

Please post details of both your devices so we can get an idea of the capabilities of the devices ... anyways ... in general this is what you can do:

 

1. Universal Repeater: A universal repeater function would greatly simplify things and tp-link has devices with this function! Here is a sample: http://uk.tp-link.com/article/?id=348

 

2. WDS: Wireless Distribution System is an "older" method that requires both devices to be compatible, is harder to set up and likely to only work with WEP security

 

3. WAP: Use a LAN cable and use your tp-link one as Wireless Access Point ... would need a LAN cable to the tp-link router and it would need to support WAP mode (commonly supported) ... routing functions would be performed by ptcl's router!

 

4. Modem + Wireless Router: Configure the PTCL's router into modem only mode (bridge) and use your newer tp-link wireless router (pppoe) ... ptcl router's wifi would be disabled in this case and routing functions would be provided by tp-link's router!

Connect your TPLink wifi router to your computer Lan port and open the IE browser and type ip 192.168.1.1  (Read the TP-Link user manual for appropriate IP) and change the DHCP server ip address to 192.168.2.1 and save configuration.

Detach the TP-Link wifi router from pc lan port and connect it to your PTCL Modem's ethernet port.

I have a similar question. I have a tenda w300 wireless router connected with shiro modem of ptcl. Although it's ip address is different, it asks for access Id and pw

Lan cable from shiro goes into the WAN port of tenda w303, I open 192.168.0.1 and when I put admin & admin as access Id and pw it doesn't work.

For people trying to connect two routers, this is how I did it

Ptcl router-> A

Other (mine was tplink wr642) -> B

First, connect B directly to ur computer using lan cable and open settings page.. (usually 192.168.1.1) login/pass is usually admin/admin

Now in network change the ip from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 (this is done to conflict with first router n other computers)

After saving, now to do dhcp and disable it (as new ip addresses should be assigned by A)

Now connect A to computer in DHCP, change IP range to 192.168.1.3 (instead of .1. 1) and end range to 192.168.1.200 (instead of .1.254)

Almost done.. now you can connect Lan cable from a numbered port of A to a numbered port of B (dont connect it to WAN port). And you are done

I have kept the names of both routers seperate (one is ptclwifi and other is tplink) to distinguish and check both ranges. Frequency channel is the same (gav me problems when I changed it). Using 100 feet of lan wire I now hav good signals from tplink upstairs and good signals from ptclwifi downstairs. When I want to access router B , I put in 192.168.1.254 in address bar etc.

You can change settings if u want (esp ip etc) esp if u understand ehy I dod what I did.. hope that helps.

For any confusion, just ask.. typing from a mobile hence kept it short

i have a question : i have a PTCL wifi modem, working fine, DHCP is enabled so many devices are connected in it, my question is ... is it possible that can I bound any device to restrict the speed limit? I mean if my connection is 2MB, can I allow the speed limit of 256KB to any computer from 2MB.
