Model: AP500
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0 beta

I have an ISP router delivering Internet to home.

This is the DHCP, 192.168.1.1, delivering adresses from 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.50.

 

I'm using the AP500 in bridge mode to relay the Wifi signal that does not come strong enough through walls. It has a static IP (192.168.1.28)

 

There, I have an Amazon FireTV that connects to the bridge but does not get the Internet.

 

The AP500 emits its own WiFi SSID.

 

If the DHCP is turned off on the AP500, then the FireTv connects, but does not get any IP address (constantly waiting for the IP).

 

If the DHCP is turned on on the AP500, (Gateway 192.168.1.28 delivering adresses from 192.168.1.40.to 192.168.1.50), the FireTv is connected and gets an IP from the AP500 (192.168.1.40). However, it still does not get Internet access. FireTv says "connected with troubles". Indeed, it doesn't show up in the list of the network devices from the main DHCP router.

 

Would you have an idea why the clients connected to the AP500 as a bridge are not seen from the main router?

@Dloki 

 

Hello, with Amazon Fire TV connected to the AP500, what is the IP address and gateway? 

 

Please connect a computer to it directly via ethernet cable to verify whether you can get internet and click here to get the IP address and gateway. 

 

Below is the instruction to set up AP500 as a bridge, please use the main router's wifi password to configure it.

And please ensure that the firmware is up to date. 

 

What is more, please ensure that there is no specific settings enabled on the main router, like access control or parental control. 

 

May it help.

@Kevin_Z 

 

Thank you very much for your answer.

 

I connected a computer as a client, trying both Wifi and RJ45. The computer behaved just like the FireTV's: connected to the AP500 without an Internet connexion.

Although I can mention that I got access to Internet for 1~2 minutes before dropping out. I had to restart the Wifi adapter to recover internet connexion from any AP...

 

The AP500 seems to be correctly configured: its UI is reachable on the local network. Also, the connected devices appear on the DHCP client list of the AP500.
However, only the AP500 appears on the DHCP list of the main router, not its connected clients.
