OPKG not updating on range extender OpenWrt router

I have a central openwrt router all working fine, a 2nd router configured as a wifi range extender ( linked via ethernet cable to central router lan i/f. 2nd router has DHCP disabled and gateway set to 192,168,1,1. Wifi and connections are ok across both routers and in principle all seems ok. Problem occurs when I try to update packages on 2nd router via opkg, i get failure to connect code 7.
How should I set the system up such that 2nd router can access updates.

Need to also set a DNS server (option dns) in the lan settings of the range extender. Usually it is set to the IP of the main router.
