tplink repeater to MK SXT bridge??

Wed Apr 05, 2017 9:13 pm

Dear Networkers,

I've this problem and I'm not experienced with Mikrotik wireless side at all.
My previous setup was having TP-link(1) as AP and TP-link(2) as "Repeater" (Which it is WDS if I'm not mistaken).
I wanted to replace TP-link(1) with SXT lite 5, only to find that the license doesn't support AP mode! And since TP-link1 is only used to provide signal to TP-link2 I thought to use the SXT in "bridge" mode.

But now the repeater TP-link(2) can't pickup the SXT when I do the survey. What can be the problem?

Should I enable WDS option to dynamic on the SXT? already tried it.
any suggestions?

thanks in advance :)

I have the same problem, the tp-link repeater does not work for mikrotik ...

(OmniTik in AP bridge mode) ---> (Repeater Tp-Link) ---> (Laptop Client)


Normal dhcp enters the ip addresses in the laptop, but it does not give me internet and it does not ping the mikrotik ...

it may not be compatible, all are of 2.4GHz frequency.
