Its the mobile device like iphone 5, sony tablet xperia and xiaomi 1s they are unable to obtain ip address from the AC87u to be connected.

Lets not talk about network drive first.

AC87u unable to assign IP addresses to the mobile device when connected to the prolink WNR1004 when set as AP connected to the media bridge AC87u unit.

Pls advice.

Thank you.
I don't have the Prolink but did you connect to the AC87 media bridge using the Prolink's LAN port or WAN port? If there is only one port, does it switch from WAN to LAN if you switch from router to AP?

the prolink its a pocket router. only 1 lan port. So i connect the prolink lan port to one of lan port of the AC87U media bridge unit. the Prolink is set as AP mode. meaning input from lan port then output via its wireless.

I tried on my other belkin router last time used to work as AP via aztech powerline system working perfectly connected to my old dlink DIR855 router.
But connected the belkin router to the AC87U media bridge unit. faced the same problem as the prolink not able to obtain IP address.

Just a interesting question:

If I replace all 8 of my AC87U antennas with +9dB, +12dB and +15dB ones (there are some selling in Amazon), will it max the 5Ghz wireless bridge to hit close to 1Gbps cap?

Any way to order these, seems didn't see them on retail stores.

Read that the AC87U antenna is specially designed. SO izzit wise to change them?

I may wanna change too as my signal strength is not strong enough to get to my room.

I just ordered 9dBi antenna last week from superpowersupply so if can wait I will share my review once it's here.

Anyway I guess so many how special the design is it's still 5dBi antenna and it got its own limit so I still go ahead with my order. If not happy with 9dBi maybe will try 15dBi.

I have 3 Engenius 9dBi antennae and tried that previously on my N66. Doesn't seem to have much improvement (using various mobile phone wifi analyzers).
