Yes, that sounds encouraging. Also I was pleased to see essential
information printed on the router label and its' wall wart, there is

Yes, TP-Link Support seems to be good as claimed. I am not yet done
testing things but it looks like the Access Point and Ethernet circuit
may be working as expected, it will take a few days to know but this
morning it looks good? It appears the main problem was that the AP wants
the LAN input signal fed into the WAN port on the A7 AC1759 router and I
plugged it into one of the four remaining ethernet jacks. Tech support
responded to my request for AP configuration instructions which I could
not find, with some easy to understand steps, the key being: "3rd: Once
it's Done Please connect the cable again from Main Router to Archer A7
using ( WAN PORT or Blue Port )".
And I guess that is logical, the LAN input signal is replacing the WAN
signal from a modem. I guess what operation I did have, which was not
working reliably, depended on a received radio signal, that in the weak
signal area I am trying to improve with this exercise! The iPhone/iPad,
whatever users are all out of the house presently so I will not have a
good test until later.
I've already lost user confidence in my ability to do a simple task so I
hope I can pull out of this with a working system,
