I am trying to set up routers around my place to have wi-fi coverage and security..
Here is the situation: I live with my family in a moderately large property, so in order to have complete wi-fi coverage we need couple of routers to ensure signal strength. Also, we have spare rooms we rent through airbnb, so we have a dual band tplink wr941hp router in order to have a guest wi-fi network set up. Finally, our ISP provides a weak wi-fi router (default IP 192.168.1.254) which we are trying to work around.
What I am trying to do: I have the ISP router wi-fi turned off. TPLink is set as slave: lan-to-lan from the ISP to the TPLink; TPLink DHCP turned off; TPLink IP set to 192.168.1.50 (as per this tutorial). Main SSID is the family wi-fi, and a guest wi-fi SSID set-up.
Problem is, I am unable to connect to the guest wi-fi. I get internet just fine though the family wi-fi, but guest is unable to resolve IP from what I was able to gather (I tried connecting with my laptop and phone. On the android phone, connection stalls at "Getting IP address..." and than fails).
Edit: router info as requested by Tim_Stewart
TPLink WR941HP v2.0 firmware: 2.0.1 build 20180305 Rel. 54795(4252)
Can I get some help with this?
