I am trying to use a 750S (firmware 3.009) in WDS mode to extend the range of my wifi network. The primary network router is a B1300 (firmware 3.022-0419). The connection appears to work for all of the devices connected to the 750S extended wifi signal. They can reach all other devices connected to either the primary or extended wifi networks.
The problem is that devices connected to the primary (B1300) using wifi can not connect to the devices on the extended (750S) portion of the network. Devices connected to the B1300 using the Ethernet ports have mixed results connecting to the extended devices.
I assume that I need to change some setting(s), but don’t know on which router or both.
All local ip addresses on both primary & extended portions of the network are assigned and resolve correctly.
All devices connected to the B1300 (wifi or Ethernet) can connect with any other device connected directly to the B1300.
I can connect (ssh & https) to the 750S using the ip assigned by the B1300. This is surprising as I thought that “upstream” connections (on the 750S) were not allowed. The WDS connection page on the 750S also says “When you use Access Point/Extender/WDS mode, you may not connect to this UI again.”
There are 2 devices connected to the 750S extended network 1 on wifi (Ew1) and 1 using Ethernet (Ee2). There are 4 B1300 ethernet connected devices (Pe1, Pe2, Pe3, Pe4) all on same Ethernet port.
Pe1 can ping both Ew1 & Ee2.
Pe2 can ping Ee2 but Ew1 is “Unreachable”.
Pe3 can ping Ew1 but Ee2 is “Unreachable”.
Pe4 can ping Ee2 but Ew1 is “Unreachable”.
Generally, no wifi device connected to the B1300 can ping any of the devices connected to the 750S. Rarely, one device has been able to ping Ee2, but this is not reliable. Some B1300 connected devices can ping the 750S and some can’t.
