HELP: Connecting Cisco DCP3925 to TP-LINK 300Mbps Wireless N Router (Model No. TL-WR841N)

Hello,

 

I am subscriber of Cable 100MBps with Cisco DCP3925. As the wireless is pretty weak due to wall, I would like to connect the Cisco DCP3925 to my router, TP-LINK 300Mbps Wireless N Router (Model No. TL-WR841N) to resolve the issue.

 

However, I found that when I connect the Cisco modem to the TP-LINK router, the TP-LINK router didn't receive any signal from the Cisco modem (self-assigned IP was shown). The issue was still the same even if I changed the Cisco modem to bridged mode. I guess I might have missed something.

 

I would like to seek help for setting up the connection between the two devices. Thanks.

Hi simonN, thanks for your kind help. However the procedures in the thread doesn't work. I wonder if there is other way to solve this...

You managed to change the Cisco to bridge mode and turn off WiFi ? After that you only connect tp link Internet port to cisco LAN port.

Yes,

 

1. Change the Cisco to bridge mode

2. Turn off WiFi  

3. Connect the TP Link router to Cisco LAN port

 

However it didn't work Smiley Sad

Is there any other devices other than TP Link connected to the Cisco? What is the problem you having?
