Connecting TP-Link Smart Switches and Smart Plugs to TG8626

I have installed two "Smart Plugs" from TP-Link inmy home and successfully connected them to my wireless gateway.

 

I can activate them locally through my cell phone, but in order to allow the Amazon Alexa app to control them they require access to the internet as well.

 

When I attempt to do this, the Tp-Link app tells me they are not connected to a network, but they appear on my conected device list on my router.

 

Does anyone have experience connecting these devices?

 

Is there a firewall setting I'm missing?

 

My next step is TP-Link support, but I figured I'd try here first.

Did you ever get it to work, my Mother In Law is having the same issue?
