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 )".
Unless the router has an actual AP mode that uses the WAN port, that is
not likely to be what you want. Assuming you want seamless roaming,
unless there is special support in the router, you want to plug your
network into the LAN port, not the WAN port. Just make sure you have
DHCP disabled on the AP.
