hello there,
i converted my old router into a switch by following online tutorials, it is working like a charm.
the problem is that i cant see my router-switch in my main router. i can see devices connected to the router-switch in main router as wired connections even if it is wireless.

thank you!

If you are just using it as a switch it knows nothing of "IP", it's a layer 2 device not layer 3. (It forwards frames based on MAC addresses not IP addresses). Switches are normally given an IP so they can be managed, no so that they can function!!
