I am trying to use a WR940N that I have lying around as a repeater. I have tried to use this tutorial:
However, I cannot even connect to my original AP.
Here is my setup:
Modem is 192.168.1.1
Original AP (WRT1200AC with 18.06): 192.168.2.1
In the instructions it says, the LAN interface has to be in another subnet than the Wifi I want to connect to. So I set the LAN interface on my WR940N (Repeater from now on) to 192.168.3.1.
Then - as by the instructions - I tried to set up a Wifi connection to the Host AP. This will not work - the wireless shows up as "not associated".
In the instructions it tells me to set the firewall zone of the newly created wifi connection to "lan". This seems weird to me, should it not be set to WAN/WWAN?
So here is what I tried:
- Set the LAN interface on the repeater to 192.168.3.1
- Set the (newly created) WWAN on the repeater to static address 192.168.2.3/24 (I also tried DHCP client)
- connect to the Host Wifi.
However, it will not connect. Can someone point me in the right direction? Sorry if I ask silly questions, the whole Interface/Firewall zone/subnet thing has me a bit confused...
