Thsi answer is WRONG. Sorry about this. Please neglect it.

No, unfortunately you cannot. Your Model only has one wireless interface, while a repeater needs two. A single thẻ repeater will wnd up talking to clients half of the time, và lớn its base station the other half of the time, thus cutting bandwidth in half.

In fact, its User"s Guide makes no mention of alternative modes lượt thích wireless repeater, range extender, wireless bridge, which are all roughly synonims.

The term WDS does indicate its ability to partake in a Wireless Distribution System, however I believe sầu it is meant to indicate that it can act as a base station, not a relay-station as required by the OPhường. Besides, in the manual mentioned above, there is no discussion of WDSes.

Yes you can configure your TP-Link WR740N as a repeater/wireless bridge. Following are the basic steps that you need to lớn take to lớn set up one:

Go khổng lồ wireless settings page of your WR740N router"s website interface, enable the option "Enable WDS Bridging" and click Survey.Your bridge router will show you routers lớn bridge with. Select the appropriate one.Make sure that the selected security settings are the one that match with the router that is connected to lớn the ISPhường & provide a password for it.Disable your bridge router"s DHCPhường. & restart the router.

Following these steps should allow you to set up your WR740N as a repeater. I have sầu been using it as one without any problem so far.

Yes, you can!

According khổng lồ this link provided by TPhường Link, you c& make the settings. I have sầu multiple TP Link routers at trang chính, all configured as WDS repeaters after this settings & entire network is working fine.

Follow this steps:

1. Login into root APhường. or extended AP and enable WDS under: Wireless -> Wireless Settings.2. Cliông chồng on Search/Survey button & cliông chồng Connect khổng lồ desired SSID Wireless Network.3. On the password input, put your main SSID Wireless password (should be the same) và Save settings.4. Disable DHCP under: Wireless -> Wireless Security.5. Reboot router/AP..Note:

1. LAN IP of extended router should be different but in the same subnet of the root router;2. The DHCP Server on extended router should be disabled;3. WDS bridging only requires the WDS setting on either the root router or the extended router.note: The accepted answer is incorrect.

Attention!

You can mix a WR740N as a repeater according khổng lồ the instructions given by other users before me but you also have to go khổng lồ the main router and make it aware (there is a special setting that depends of your main router connected directly to lớn the internet) your WR740N exists. If you vì chưng not change anything in the main router your WR740N will only work as a repeater for a while (a few hours or days) và then it will stop unexpectedly.

WR740N does not work elegantly like a range extender (a NETGEAR for example) where there is no need to modify any settings in the main router.
