The wireless network in my home was set up by a third party with a main wireless router (Router 1) connected to the modem, and two secondary routers (Routers 2 and 3) located in the bedroom connected by ethernet to Router 1.
The three routers support separate wireless networks with different SSIDs and passwords.
After replacing Router 1, Router 2 is no longer able to connect to the internet - the wireless icon on windows shows "Connected but no internet access". However, Router 3 is functioning fine and is able to access the internet.
Router 2 is a TP-Link Archer C2. I'm not sure if the following information is relevant, but:
- DHCP is enabled on Router 2
- The status page on Router 2 shows that it is unable to get a WAN IP address, with IP Address / Subnet Mask / Default Gateway / DNS Server showing up as 0.0.0.0
- Connection type is Dynamic IP
- I have clicked the "Renew" button on the WAN Settings page but the addresses remain as 0.0.0.0
- It is not a physical cable issue - have tested with working ethernet cables
- The physical internet status light shows as green on the Archer C2
- Running ipconfig in cmd shows an IPv4 address - 192.168.1.113
I would greatly appreciate any help in resolving the lack of internet access on Router 2. I'm quite clueless as to how it was set up, but would prefer to keep the current separate wireless network setup.
Please do let me know if any more information is required. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: The router settings page on R1 shows that R2 is a connected device, and recognises it as an Archer C2. Not sure if this is relevant information.
