What IP, mask and DHCP settings on a new access point that connects to existing DSL router?
I have an existent DSL internet connection using rebranded DSL modem/router with wireless from ISP.
This alone works OK, all phones and computers in the house can connect to the router wifi.
Router has ip `192.168.1.1` and DHCP server enabled, e.g from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254.
Now I want to install a TP-Link CPE210 access point, so that I plug it to one of the DSL ethernet connectors and allow phones and computers connect to this TP-link CPE210 access point, to increase network range.
This^ should be a common setup I assume.
How should I set the IP on the access point web interface ?
The access point, under LAN, it has default IP 192.168.0.254, do I set this to something like 192.168.1.2 ?
Next to that, do I set 192.168.1.1 as the gateway ?
Do I need to enable the DHCP server on the access point interface too ? If I leave it OFF, will main router still be able to give IPs to the clients connected trough the access point ?
One issue is that clients connected to the access point but didn't get internet access.
Another is that from the access point web interface, I cannot ping 126.96.36.199 or even 192.168.1.1.
It's like the main router fully ignores the access point, I can't even see the AP's IP connected on router web interface.
