Hi,
I am having a hard time trying to chain together routers and could use some help...
I have the following setup

  • WiredRouter: TP Link TL-R600VPN, connected to the internet and to each of the Wifi's routers
  • Wireless-A: NetGear R6300, connected to the WiredRouter and mostly media devices including Printers/Netdisks etc.
  • Wireless-B: Google Wifi, connected to the WiredRouter and Laptops
I am trying to join the networks so that I an be connected on one wifi and access devices on the other. I've read a few guides and understand that I need have the main WiredRouter manage the IP addresses for the two other routers. However however after I disabled DCHP on Wireless-A, I'm no longer able to connect on the Wifi as devices cant obtain an IP address. Ive checked the logs on the WireRouter and aside from the request from the Wireless-A to obtain an IP address, I don't see any further requests suggesting when devices connect to the wireless router, their requests arent being routed to the DCHP server on the Wiredrouter?
Thanks in advance...
Iain

Thanks,
I think the sticky might have some out of date links now but you put me on the right path with configuring the wifi as an access point; working exactly as i wanted - thanks!
