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,
it requires that both devices support WDS connection. "

    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.
