  • TP-Link TL-WR1043ND, Ultimate Wireless N Gigabit Router
  • TP-Link TL-W8961ND, 300Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router

I need detailed information on how to set the TL-WR1043ND to operate as a wireless extender. Both routers are running the latest firmware. How can I do it?

Installing DD-WRT on the TL-WR1043ND allowed me to use it as wireless extender (client bridge). It has been quite easy and straightforward :)

DD-WRT is a Linux based alternative OpenSource firmware suitable for a great variety of WLAN routers and embedded systems. The main emphasis lies on providing the easiest possible handling while at the same time supporting a great number of functionalities within the framework of the respective hardware platform used.
