Hello,

I want to setup TP-LINK TL-WA801ND as an acces point in our school. I’m using a static IP and I'm trying to set it up in a way that it doesn't conflict with other IP's.

Do I have to disable DHCP, so the AP assigns different IP's to users that connect to our wifi network? Is this possible or do I need a different device?

OK, well, whatever Range you set the static in, you need to make certain that DHCP cannot hand those IP address out. So, if Wireless AP are set for 192.168.10.20-192.168.10.40, make certain that your DHCP has those as excluded from RANGE!

OK so start a new scope. Make a reservation in that scope. Set that reservation to a machine name (OR MAC) that WILL USE AN AP to log in. Set that IP range it hands out to a range that only those AP users will have. Now, the machine will attempt to gain access to network, the MAC is trapped by the scope, and the scope hands out the IP range for AP users!

Once you have an AP policy, when you get a new laptop, name it, and place it into that container!

YOu are only giving out reservations. The scope hands out the range. The MAC is tied to the scope.

Keep it real simple. Start with setting up a reservation on a MAC, see how it works, then apply a model that is more suitable for your organization.
