I'm very sorry, for some reason, I had it in my mind that most, if not 
all, TP-Links had a client mode.. this was a grave error on my part.

However, many models do have WDS Bridge support, which will work just as 
well for the purpose of connecting existing wireless to a local lan.

But would be better to buy the Access Point models, with explicit client 
mode support, such as this:
