I have two routers at home, one Cisco and One DLink. The Cisco Router is the main router and the DLink router is set up a repeater.
The connection between the two routers is made using a wired connection, from LAN port of main router to Lan port of the secondary router.
Currently, the main router handles everything(DHCP and internet connection). The secondary router is just set-up as a repeater with no DHCP.
Everything is working perfectly fine. But I was wondering why I need to connect the LAN port of the main router to the LAN port of the secondary router.
But if I try to connect the LAN port of the main router to the WAN port of the secondary router which is set-up as repeater, the connection does not work. Why is that so?
