I have a 3G router (TP-Link TL-MR3020) which I used for some time to create a wireless access point with Econet and Powertel modems. I recently acquired a new router and i thought i might use this one as a wifi extender. The problem is, it works fine if it is in 3G mode, but in AP mode, no device i tried was able to acquire an IP address, using both DHCP and static IPs. I've tried flashing new firmware to the router but still...same problem. what could be the problem?
(TP-Link support is a waste of time)
