Get a different AP for clients. I've seen cases where certain APs will 'NAT' MAC addresses, only showing the MAC of the AP, and not the MAC of the devices behind the AP, even though it's supposed to be in a bridge...

There's not much you can do about this

u can see client mac address but only of one computer after ur AP9but u hav to use some different Acess point for client side,i.e which hav the facility of mac cloning, like micronet-GK, dlink etc. if u still wanna see the mac address of all computer after ur TP-link then u can aslo do that but for that u must use point to point link.. in this case even TP link will work

hope this helps u..
