I set up the Prolink WNR1004 as wireless access point for me to use my tablet, phone etc in my room as the wireless strength from the main AC87U in the hall is not strong enough.
I want to set the prolink as AP but the mobile device is unable to obtain IP address fr the AC87U. Then i set the prolink to router mode. its able to get internet access via the media bridge unit. meaning i cant have "access" to my other device connected to the main AC87U unit.
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.
