homeplug +modem-router = no wifi
I have a plusnet router and a great service from them. Because I have a old/large house the wifi from the router does not get to every room.I also have many homeplugs and use them to connect PCs to the router . This also works great. I also have a Tenda wireless-N broadband router (just a router , not a modem router). If I plug a homeplug into it's WAN port it gives me wifi, again perfect. Recently I updated my windows 10 to the latest version and now it will not connect to the Tenda wifi saying it is old and therefore not safe. So I have to upgrade to a different router for the wifi. I happen to have a newer modem-router. This router however has some internal check and comes up with a page showing no internet is connected, although like Tenada I have connected my homeplug to it's WAN port. I assume because it is a modem-router it has an internal check that somehow expects internet to be connected to it's DSL port. Can any of you gurus help me change something in it to just work like the Tenda router. Thank you in advance.

@fshuk1 Welcome to the forum.
You need to set your modem/router up as an Access Point. Either look up how to do this in the manual/on line or tell us the make and model of your device.
