I have a HG659 wifi router connected to nbn and it works well. Now I want to extend the wifi coverage. 

I want to use the HG659 as a main wifi router and my TP-link TD-W8960N as a secondary wifi router.

 

I need to connect TP-link to the HG659 , then amplify the signal. 

 

In HG659 internet setting, I cannot set it to wifi bridge mode since it is 

Access type:

Ethernet
 
What should I do? thanks.

Hi chenlocus,

You don't need bridge mode to connect secondary router, you just need to connect WAN port of Tp link router from one of LAN port of Huawei 659 using Ethernet cable,  Then just configuredTP link router as dynamic IP address.

Hi  chenlocus,

As per my knowledge tp-link td-w8960n is ADSL modem router  which you can use  a wireless router as a option but  you can't use it as a WiFi extender.  You need to buy WiFi extender for it  and for that you don't have to make any change to Huawei HG659, you just need wireless network name and password from Huawei router.
