    Hi, trying to set up my old WR541G router as a repeater. I currently use a TP-LINK TL-WR941ND for my internet router. Can I configure the older WR541G to resend that signal, or is it unable to do that?

    If yes, can anyone link me to a "how to" or tell me how to go about it?

    Thanks!!

    I have one of them. Various hardware versions, mine is the v7

    I did not understand your question. You want the WR541G to
    pick up the signal and re-transmit it ? No, it can't do that. You will
    need an Ethernet cable connecting it to something with internet
    access. Could be your TL-WR941ND.

    "In order to build a WDS connection between different devices,

    My WR541G v7 does not have WDS. Don't know if there are more
    recent versions that have that feature. TP-LINK routers are dirt cheap
    though, might as well get the one with the latest backdoors.

    It's a thousand kilometers away. I left it setup for a
    relative. But the manual says nothing about WDS. But I found it on the
    datasheet. Nice to know it's there. TY.
