I’m looking for a way to connect my TV to my “main” router, the one handling the incoming internet connection via wifi instead of the LAN cable.
This means, instead of using a LAN cable between the TV and the main router I’d like to use a second router connecting via wifi to the main router and the TV connecting to the secondary router via LAN. The reason is simple: I have 3 meter gap to bridge and a cable is not an option due to walls, doors etc.
Is this possible?
The main router is a GL.iNet GL-AR750S-Ext, the secondary would be something simpler, maybe an GL AR300.
I’d appreciate any information / description on the solution!
I use this network config often. I’ve done this with an AR300, an MT300N, and an AR150. I speculate that every GL.iNet router can do this.
Basically, I configure my router to connect to my main router, and then plug my ethernet-only TV into my router via a short ethernet cable. It’s very easy and natural to configure with the stock firmware. It’s been rock solid too. For me I am very successful doing this with a 2.4 GHz device, but your wireless spectrum situation or bandwidth demands might lead you to a 5 GHz solution.
