Workaround for tp-link tl-wa854re Access Point wifi extender network issue

For an unknown reason, my tp-link Wifi extender has suddenly stopped working.

In fact, it didn't find anymore the DHCP server, even connected to the root Wireless network.

In the network interface of a device connected to the AP I saw the following parameters obviously set by the AP as this was not in my home network range:
DHCP server :
DNS server :
Gateway :
So I've simply entered this ip address in a browser from a client device of the AP, using admin/admin as user and password and set a static ip address to the AP (in Network > LAN) and disabled the embedded DHCP server (in Network > DHCP settings).
