Model: Archer C60  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: Latest

Hi. I'm unable to configure the router as Access point. I have an Ethernet cable from my main router and I'm plugging it in the c60 internet socket. There is no option for Access point. If I disable dhcp, nothing works. With it enable it provides internet but in a private lan without visibility of my main lan. Can you help me? Thanks

You can configure the Archer C60 as the access point manually. You can follow the second method to set it up as the AP except changing the operation mode.

Good day.

@Jonyjm It's not enough disabling DHCP, the steps in order to follow are:

  • Connect both routers (main router and your access point) using LAN ports (NOT THE WAN)
  • Disable DHCP in access point
  • Set the IP of your access point (not the WAN or Internet IP, but the Network or LAN IP) to an address belonging to the same subnet of the main router (but outside the DHCP range of your main router, if your main router has IP address x.x.x.1 for instance, set the access point as x.x.x.2 or any other not being used and, again, outside the range of DHCP in your main router)

 

That way you can use the router as access point even if it doesn't have that operation mode (which I ignore). In fact I followed these three same steps yesterday to test a few things in my Archer C6 (which has access point mode but wanted to emulate it in router mode also to check a couple of things)

@AKI2 You have the answers in the replies of this thread. There's indeed no operation mode in your router, so you have to manually set it as access point as explained in my reply before (basically set IP address and disable DHCP)

@Jonyjm easily use the WDS feature and change the Lan IP to Any 192.168.x.x, like this pic !!! or watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RfWZYj-p30 .I did those steps and instructions in this video and it worked for me.

 

Router No.1 Connected in Wan Cable from modem



Router No.2 (Archer 60 V.2.0)



the connection from the first router (Any Wifi 2.4ghz or 5.0ghz) to the second router (Any Wifi 2.4ghz or 5.0ghz) via the WDS feature
