Can not connect wifi to New TP-link 210 nodes

Two brand newly configured 210v2 nodes see and play nice with each other. 

Computer connected to switch can access either unit. Computer trying wifi connect gets: Can Not Connect to this Network.

What did I do wrong? It has to be a simple error.

PCs are going to connect via

PCs aren't going to connect via wifi to a mesh node unless you have setup a wifi access point specifically for that purpose.

HW exchanged and better

Thanks Ande,
I traded out (apparently bad ap) with new tplink set up and connected node2 with static ip, made dhcp reservation.

Connecting to both nodes, but only using node base ip. so if I want to connect with node name, what do I need to change?

again, thanks

Full Qualified Node Name

The node you are Ethernet-connected to is http://localnode.local.mesh and all other nodes use the convention, nodename.local.mesh and for services, servicename.local.mesh.  Note that servicename must be unique across the mesh, so each service should be preceded with your callsign (ex: callsign-servicename.local.mesh).

localnode.local.mesh will not connect, but

nodename.local.mesh:8080 will -- must have port to access.

node is connected to cisco switch. laptop is connected to switch. laptop gets 10. address from node. node name works.

connected to AP on the second node, and only the node 10. base addr works. AP is configured with static from dhcp pool on node.
 so if I want to control remote node via wifi, is that correct?
