I have two routers and I want to extend my Wi-Fi range.
First router: TP-Link AC1750
- directly connected to cable modem (192.168.11.1)
- SSID is
- DHCP is enabled
Second router: TP-Link TL-WR1043ND
- IP: 192.168.11.2
- Gateway: 192.168.11.2
- SSID is:
secondary_router, this one is bridged to
- DHCP is disabled
Both router have the same start and end IP address (for LAN).
My laptop is connected to main_router (5 GHz network, but 2.4 GHz is also available). But most of the time I get an empty webpage and I need to refresh the web page until it's OK.
Wi-Fi is used to connect the secondary_router to main_router.
@majenko said that both router need to operate in bridge mode, but I don't know how or if this is even possible with my used hardware.
