My apartment is quite large and most rooms have several walls, meaning Wifi signals drop easily.
To combat this I found a spare DSL Router I had previously and placed that in the Kitchen and connected it with an ethernet cable to my ADSL Router which is the Gateway in my LAN.
The internet has been great and Wifi coverage has improved now with the two Wifi hotspots.
The only problem is now my PC which connects to the main router is getting an unreliable ethernet connection. To even confuse matters more, if I try and connect to the router using the default IP of
One moment I will get the ADSL router, then if I refresh I will get the old DSL router.
It is like they are fighting for the specific IP address and cannot allocate it. I am guessing I need to have some sort of Slave / Master (if I can use that term) to enforce authority on the network.
Any ideas whats happening? How I can go about fixing this?
