ZF7762 and other brands repeaters

We installed a ZF7762 at a client's residence and everything works fine. When you connect to the wlan (test purpose wlan, no authentication) your client correctly gets an IP address from DHCP, gateway and DNS server. Now the client wants to extend the wifi connection into a few apartments where the signal does not reach strong enough. He tried a TP-Link TL-WA801ND configured as a repeater. The TP-Link connects to the ZF7762 (ZF7762's MAC shows up in the connected devices list on the repeater), but if you connect to the TP-Link repeater nothing comes through (DHCP not working, no ping response even setting static IP address on the client). Same repeater works fine extending a Cisco aironet wlan. Could it be a compatibility problem of some kind?

Assuming you are using the 7762 in Standalone mode, SSH into the AP and use the following command :

rkscli: set qos directedDHCP disable
Direcet DHCP is Disabled
OK

PS: you can use any SSH client, eg. PuTTy - can be downloaded from http://www.putty.org/ for Windows. For MAC OS just use your terminal to SSH.

Hope this helps, cheers!

You may also find that you need a Ruckus CPE, like the MediaFlex 7211 or 7111,
which are capable of doing WDS with a ZoneFlex AP. I think the TP-Link is not
compatible with Ruckus (proprietary) WDS, and thus we do not learn the MACs
of clients connected behind it.

Would this also work on a 7372 with a ZD?
