I’m a novice at best so please bear with me.
I’ve been trying to configure my GL-B2200 routers as wireless repeaters, as it was purchased by someone who did not understand that it was an unsupported mesh network for the router setup being used.
While I’m able to set up a travel router from the same producer as this forum as a repeater, I’m having specific issues I’ll list with the GL-B2200 mesh routers while navigating the LuCI UI, in addition to listing basic information:
Main Router: ASUS RT-AX86U
Goal: Sending packets to the main router so that the DHCP can assign IP addresses, and not the secondary routers
Documentation I’ve looked at:
a) [OpenWrt Wiki] Wi-Fi extender / repeater / bridge configuration
b) More Settings - GL.iNet Docs
(I might be misreading these or something, but I’ve hit a wall)
Setting up the mesh router as a repeater activates the DHCP server in them. Upon disabling it under ‘LAN’ under Network >> Interface >> LAN (Edit), it seems to still assign my test device under the IP 192.168.8.*** when I want the DHCP on the main router to assign 192.168.50.***, despite the IPv4 gateway (LAN) being entered as 192.168.50.1
If this forum allows post editing, I’ll update as time goes on. Thanks
