Problem with Access TP-Link TD-W8951ND especially Wireless

Hello Everyone,
I have problems with the access of TP Link router TD-W8951ND
After the firmware updates the 1st time wizard did not offer plusnet as provider anymore but a simple hardcoded settings page.
I checked the info and seem to be able to connect without problems. This only works for Wired devices though. None of the wireless devices gets access to the internet
It says limited connection on the notebook. Did anyone come across this before?
pinging the router works when on wireless just the routing into the internet is not working.

Did you try and connect wireless using the wps button.

Nope. I am also connected with the devices but the connection says limited on the notebook or no internet access on the phone.
Ethernet PC connection works like  a charm

I dont know this router and it may not be relevant but you have the WPS box ticked  as YES  I think it should be NO if you do not use it.

well this should be something optional I believe. Just had a device getting signal for a few minutes.. now nothing.. something clearly is not right with the settings and the connection to plusnet

If wired PCs are working fine, there's nothing wrong with 'the connection to Plusnet'.  Check your PC wireless settings and the network adapter settings.

Concentrate on getting the laptop working - can it be connected using an ethernet cable. If that works
then maybe it is "just" a wifi problem.  Are you near the router when you try?   Tried a different channel?
There is quite a lot of setting up help in th manual.
This FAQ may also help   http://www.tp-link.com/en/faq-722.html
Maybe change the security to None - just while you are testing,

Hi,
just a little update on this. The devices all got confused on wifi access/dhcp/dns settings on the wireless. PlusNet Sagem router and TPLINK router were set to different DHCP server addresses(router ip) and the devices just couldn't get new proper settings.
