Not connected to the internet

I am trying to extend my internet service from my home to my shop using TP Link outdoor CPE 510.  On my router (R6120) I can find the router but it will not connect to the internet.  ISP comes in to the house ansd enters a linksys wireless router that i use for numerous devices in the house.  A cat5e cable then leaves the linksys router and goes to the TP link Access point and "bounces" tot the TP Link Client and then goes to my R6120.  Is there a conflict because a router has to go through a router to get to the internet?  I by passed the linksys router and connected the TP link access point directly to the ISP cat5e coming in and still got the "not connected to tthe internet.  I am lost when it comes to IP addresses, gateway, subnet mask is that where my problem lies?

 

Thanks for you help in advance.

Re: Not connected to the internet

the question is how you have them setup. If you've already got a router running on the network in router mode, then the R6120 would need to be in ap mode or you'll be in a double nat and see that issue.
