I want to connect another router to work as slave router from main router. I have a spare router for that. The problem is that main router is at our neighbors apartment which is on second floor and signal get weak in some places of our house (walls are quite thick). There is no way to connect second router via cable. I can only connect it via wifi.
So I'm guessing maybe I could just connect spare router in good spot to take signal from main router and then I could connect to slave router to have better signal.
I entered same SSID on slave router, same password, disabled DHCP, entered static IP address to be 192.168.1.50, changed channel to be different from main router.
Then tried connecting to network, and it connects to slave router, showing good signal. But just that. It shows that there is no internet. So it seems slave router does not pass signal to main router?
Now it just breaks Internet connection, because all computers connect to salve router with same ssid and password, but it does not work, ignoring main router.
Am I missing something here?
