How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

There is a technology called Wireless Distribution System http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_Distribution_System.

I don’t think your specific router model has any custom firmware that can be flashed for WDS support.

Normally users would flash a different router firmware on to their router such as DD-WRT or Tomato, which would “unlock” WDS support.

Method 2

I think what your suggesting is possible without trying alternative firmware (DD-WRT, etc.) Although I could be wrong.

According to the manual for the TD-W8960NB WDS is possible with that model. Page 78 on the user manual has some more details.

For the TL-WA501G I suggest having a look at the following link.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
