Apologies if this has been asked before - I did try and do a search, but couldn’t find the answers I was looking for.
I have a bought a GL-AR150 to extend the range of my wireless network from a Netgear Nighthawk R7000. I have tried setting the WAN of my AR150 to “Repeater” in WISP mode, then setup a static IP on the LAN settings (set a different IP from the WAN IP on the same subnet, then set my gateway & DNS servers to the main router’s IP address) & remove the DCHP server & disable the firewall on the AR150. Unfortunately when I do this, I don’t get internet connection when a device connects to the AR150.
I have previously just setup the AR150 WAN connection and set the Wi-Fi SSID & password to the same as my main router. This works, but periodically devices would randomly experience Wi-Fi issues and need to disconnect & reconnect to Wi-Fi to resolve - annoying given I have smart home devices which don’t have interfaces to allow for easy disconnection/reconnection to a Wi-Fi network.
I’m probably doing something very simple and stupid wrong here, but I can’t figure it out - all I’m basically looking for is for the AR150 to act as a range extender :).
Can anyone help?
