Modem > Switch > WNDR4500 (For Wireless)

Hello, I recently hard wired my entire house with CAT6 cable. I then bought a TP-LINK TL-SG1016D to be the main switch for the hard wires. Everything works fine on the hard wired side.

My issue, is that I am trying to have the WNDR4500 plugged into my switch so I can use it for WiFi only.

I can't seem to get internet access with the WNDR4500. Does anyone know what settings I need to adjust to get this setup working?

Thanks!

if you have existing network, use AP mode feature in the router settings

Your setup is wrong. Try this. Modem > Router > Switch.
