I should connect apartment 2 network to ap1 network and provide it with internet. Equipment is as on drawing, wep is disabled, acess point router from ap1 and acess point client from ap2 are properly connected via channel 13, 54mbps. Signal is 70db.
Problem is that computers from ap2 cannot ping anything beyond 192.168.1.131.
If your goal is to have everyone on the same network make sure the DHCP server is OFF on router 2. And On the AP. The AP's might have a setting for gateway and DNS they should both be set to 192.168.1.1 (main router 's IP)
wireless router 192.168.1.1 is now DHCP enabled, rest of them are dhcp disabled. Basic problem is that I san not acess 192.168.1.130 from ap#2 computers, and 192.168.1.131 from ap#1 computers. Not even with ping. Both APs are TP-link tl-wr543g with latest firmware, one set in router mode, another in client mode, connected properly, dhcp disabled on both.
I just read some of the user guide for those tp=links
Both should be plugged in with 1 of the lan ports NOT the wan (Ignore the wan port and wan settings) Make sure the DHCP server is DISABLED on both of them. Read up on the bridge mode in wireless settings. Basically you enable this on each router and type in the MAC address of the other router in the first field on that page. Use the wireless MAC address. As each of these have 3 mac address. a wan a lan and a wireless adapter mac.
Where did you come up with the IP addresses for the devices in Apt2? If your PCs in Apt2 are obtaining leases from the DHCP server, then communication must be getting through. I assume this as you have IP addresses listed on your devices in Apt2 in the picture. Can a device in Apt1 ping a device in Apt2? Can you post an ipconfig from a PC in Apt2 and a ipconfig from a PC in Apt1 and post? Can you ping 126.96.36.199 (google dns) from a device in apt2 Also do a tracert to any url from a PC in apt2 and post if you can. this might help us in figuring out this problem.

Ermion: -IP adresses from apt2 are expected/manually configured, not dhcp assigned. -Devices in Apt1 can't reach Apt2 devices with ping and vice-versa - 188.8.131.52 or anything beyond Apt2 can't be reached
Something is on my mind right now, could this be the problem:
That may just be the problem. We've pretty much ruled out everything else. So that leaves hard ware compatibility. Maybe get some info from TP link them selves on what models can do the job that you have planned out.
