TP-Link (TL-WA901ND) not working with BT Home Hub 5

Hi there!

Recently I moved my older electronics into a new house, however, upon inspection, I couldn't get my TP-Link to work alongside the wifi.

I have it all setup correctly at first glance but upon trying to access a web page, ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS, will appear almost every time. Alongside this, downloads will not start.

Any help? I'm completely lost at this point so any help is appreciated.

Welcome to this user forum.

Its important to get the configuaration correct.

See Using a TP Link WA701ND or WA801ND (better) as a wireless access point.

The WA901 is similar, but you must change the IP subnet to 192.168.1.xx , and give it a static IP address within that subnet, as described.

There is an emulator https://emulator.tp-link.com/TL-WA901ND_V3/Index.htm

I don’t quite understand what you mean about the subnet IPs, could you walk me through it?

Upon following this guide, the problem still occurs. Anything else?

Not really, as I have had no issues in the past with any of the TP Link wireless access points. They do not work very well as wireless repeaters, they need to be hard wired to the home hub.

Make sure you turn off smart setup, on the home hub.
