    Share Internet connection with TP-LINK WR702N


    Just bought a TP-Link WR702N 150Mbps Wireless N Namo Router

    The Plan was for me to share my wireless connection with ethernet connection and connected theTP Link Device to LAN which then would then share the internet conection wirelessly

    Reason I only pay for one device to be connect to my current network provider

    Ive tried Sharing and Bridging the wireless connection but nothing

    the TP link WR702N it's self is able to operate in AP, ROUTER, BRIDGE CLIENT and REPEATER modes

    What are you using as a Modem? The router you have, is mainly used more as a Repeater or A/P, than as a router.

    That is how they are set up to do. You can try and use a USB wifi adapter and try and use the computer as an a/p, by Bridging the connection.

    I had to do some digging. You can use Conectify on your laptop, thus turning it into a wifi hotspot. You can get it from Majorgeeks.com download repository.
