Everything seems to connect fine to the extender and the router, just not the pc. Xbox works, 360 works, all mobile devices work. Just not pc

Yeah, but I would stay away from that. Bridging is a terrible idea for gaming and besides it would need to connect via your PC to bridge it, meaning your PC would need to connect to the network anyhow. Sorry it's been a bit since I've responded. Are you still having the issue?

My TP-Link has DHCP. If I want a local zone I assign it its own address from the router and set the high and low ends of the DHCP pool. If not then the DHCP is disabled and the router does all the heavy lifting.

Yeah I'll agree most don't have that. But it's real nice to have it. You can be picky about what it listens to and how it operates.
