I have a network with several routers serving as accesspoint connected trough a switch to a central DLS/router/AP.
One of the slave router have been somehow partially reset (SSID changed to 'default' but DHCP disabled which is not by default), and now have the default 192.168.1.1 address which collide with the master router's one. I would like to access the device and reconfigure this router but unfortunately I can only access to the network thought remote desktop on a machine connected either to the central or to the failing router. Remote controlling this machine I discovered the conflict (the central router being reachable and the other not) and the two MAC address (arping) but I am not sure how I can solve this.
I can't access the failing router as this only respond on his default address which is obscured by the master(DHCP) and at the same time I cannot change the arp entry of computer from the central to the rouge router as this link is required for remote session to work.
The only solution I can see is changing the master router ip but I was looking for something different as this would require me a great deal of work.
Thank you for your help!
