Hello, first of all i'm completely Newbie, so i'm not sure that this answer already given or not... i tried to find the solution and tried to setup the configuration, but nothing worked... below is described my problem..
I'm using Openwrt LEDE Reboot 17.01.6 r3979-2252731af4 on my TP-Link TL-MR3420 v2 router .. I have Mikrotik Routerboard as Access Point.. But because of the poor signal i decided to use this router as Extender which will connect with my Mikrotik RouterBoard.. I want to connect my router as Extender of my main Mikrotik Router.. Also the Extender name will be different .. For example my main Router AP Name "HZ_Mikrotik" and the Openwrt Router AP Name will be "HZ_Mikrotik_Repeater"... The devices will connect to the Openwrt router , but they will take the DHCP IP from the main router(Mikrotik Routerboard)..
After watching some tutorial and viewing post i tried to setup my router as repeater, i can connect my devices only via static IP..for Example:
Main Router SSID : HZ_Mikrotik
Main Router DHCP Server : 192.168.100.1/24
Pool : 192.168.100.100-192.168.100.254
OpenWRT SSID : HZ_Mikrotik_Repeater
OpenWRT DHCP : Disable
OpenWRT LAN IP : 192.168.1.1/24(I didn't change, just disabled)
OpenWRT Client IP: 192.168.100.51/24
Subnet : 255.255.255.0
DNS : 192.168.100.1
Bridge Realy: Client virtual Interface(conenct with HZ-Mikrotik) + LAN(LAN ports + new AP which i made with the name "HZ_Mikrotik_Repeater" )
If i just connect my devices with my openwrt router it can't get the IP address from main router, but if i give static IP address, gateway and DNS it works and i can get reply by pinging the device's ip from my main router.. also i get the ip address from ARP list..
Want: How can i also get the DHCP list when i will connect my device via Openwrt.. The same environment works when i used my TP-Link Extender 850RE without any problem.. i didn't use any WDS system but it worked.. but i don't have the repeater no more and i just want to setp my OpenWRT Router...
