Hi there:

I have a ISP fiber router.
Archer C80 bridged with the fiber router (disabled fiber router wi-fi).
Bought a new Archer C6 to connect with WDS to Archer C80.

Main Router: Archer C80, IP address 192.168.1.1, DHCP on, DHCP IP address pool 192.168.101 - 192.168.1.249
Extended Router: Archer C6, IP address 192.168.1.5, DHCP off

Setup the Archer C6 (extended router) with no DHCP (DHCP off), WDS to the Archer C80 (main router) wifi.
Setup a static ip address to Archer C6: 192.168.1.5
The main router's (C80) ip address is 192.168.1.1

I can get connection with the devices connected to the extended router (C6) and it works fine.
However, I can't access the router's management page.
I used Advanced IP Scanner to scan all the devices in my network but can't find the Archer C6.

Can't find it either in Network Map (Archer C80 main router's management page) or DHCP Client List.


Any idea?

Thanks and best regards.
