you could just get rid of the TT router. I have, my set up is a ZYXEL XMG3927-B50A (router/modem/gateway) linked via cat5e and cat6 cable to 2 x TP-Link Archer AX50`s routers (from Lan out of ZYXEL to WAN ports on Archer AX50`s) all setup as Keith says in AP mode. It works better than I used to have it (Lan to Lan).
Great all round house wifi now plus extra lan ports in other locations which is great

If you put the TT router into bridge mode (if that was even possible) you would have no internet access whatsoever. This is because you would be disabling all routing functions of the TT router. It would then be impossible to route IP packets from your local network to the public IP address of your WAN link. So the TT router must stay as a router.
This gives you two choices:-
The only downside to choice (2) is that you will need to do double NAT translations if you use port forwarding. This is nowhere near as difficult as some people think, I do it all the time.

i dont think you can put a TT router into Bridge Mode but i might be wrong (i use a 3rd party router which you can) just turn wifi off on TT router and put ethernet cable from it to other device
