Cannot acces main network from second Access Point

Sun Feb 14, 2016 12:26 pm

Hi all,

I want to increase wireless range so I've decided to connect a spare TP-Link router as an Access Point.
Connected the cable to the WAN port of the TP-Link router, the router gets and IP from the main Mikrotik router, I connect my Notebook to the new Access Point and I have internet, all good till this point. But there is one big problem I cannot connect to LAN shared resources on the 192.168.1.1 network, no ping reply whatsoever.
I cannot even ping the TP-Link that recieved IP (192.168.1.100) from any computer on 192.168.1.1 network.

TP-Link (access point) <--------> D-Link (switch) <---------> Mikrotik (router)

TP-Link: 192.168.1.100 | 192.168.5.1 | DHCP 192.168.5.1/24
Mikrotik: 192.168.1.1 | DHCP 192.168.1.1/24


Notebook: 192.168.5.2 <---- cannot ping any 192.168.1.1 devices
Any devices: 192.168.1.1/24 -----> cannot ping TP-Link Router 192.168.1.100

But I have internet on the Wireless device!

What I'm doing wrong and how to solve this issue? Thank you.

Router, after router. Change connection from WAN to LAN.

At my last job, we called this setup a "poor man's access point"
