To extend my wireless upstairs I salvaged a second router and have been trying to set it up so that:
- SSID matches with primary router
- Password matches with primary router
Secondary router: Dlink DIR-615 (Hardware revision H2, Firmware 8.04 iirc)
Primary router is from ISP: Telenet. I only get basic ability to configure it. According to the web gui my ISP provides:
- LAN-Subnet: 192.168.0.1
- LAN-Subnet IPv6 : 2a02:1812:1622:6400::/64
According to a forum user online: The DHCP range of the primary router is 192.168.X.[100-254]
How would I go for setting up the secondary router as an Access Point?
Am I forced to disable it's DHCP capabilities? Or can I change it's DHCP range to not match the primary router's DHCP range?
PS: Does having the second router also do DHCP, have any benefit on speed/capabilities?
Thank you for your help. If any further information is needed, feel free to ask.
