TP-Link TL-WA901 & Home Hub 5 connectivity problem

I've just installed a Home Hub 5. Devices connected via Ethernet & Wifi work fine.  My Vista PC connected via a TP-Link switch & a TP-Link TL-WA901ND Wireless Access Point can't web browse successfully.  Firefox says "The page isn't redirecting properly", IE says "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" - for every site I try.  I can ping my BT hub OK, I can see the PC from the hub & a directly-connected Windows 7 PC, & I can ping external websites.  Any ideas?  I've tried changing all sorts of settings without any luck, Googled, etc, & nothing I've tried has sorted it.  The same PC & browsers work if connected via Ethernet.

 

Btw, the connection setup is like this as I've had equipment damaged 3 times from lightning surges via my phone line.  The PC connected directly is only temporary until I've resolved the problem.

Thanks - I'd already seen that and it didn't suggest anything I hadn't already tried.

Re: TP-Link TL-WA901 & Home Hub 5 connectivity problem

This sort of problem is often caused by the Default Gateway on the device not being set up correctly as the routers' IP address.

 

Just a thought.
