    Configure a wireless repeater

    Hi guys,
    I hope you are having a good day!
    My name is Alex. I configured my repeater for home network yesterday but everything was seemed to work incorrectly. The repeater kept dropping connection. So I would like to ask you guys about this. My desktop is broken, I connect to my main router wirelessly through a laptop.
    Here are some information I have got about my main router (TP-Link WR740N):
    LAN IP Address:
    Subnet Mask:
    WAN IP Address:
    Subnet Mask:
    Default Gateway:
    DNS Server:,
    DHCP Start IP Address:
    End IP Address:
    Primary DNS:
    Secondary DNS:
    I login to my repeater (TP-Link WR841N) through a LAN cable by enter the address to a browser.
    Could anyone please explain step-by-step the processes for me to configure my repeater? I really need your help!
    Thank you very much indeed!

    This looks fairly straight forward - read through it and ask any questions.

    Setup TP-Link TL-WR841N as a Wi-Fi Extender The ScottyZone

    The DNS settings with all zeros is going to cause isses. they need to match the Gateway IP or something like Google's.

    With all Zero's for DNS. It makes the machine ms thi k that they are talking to Local host.
