Model: Archer C1200

Firmware Version:

Hi,

 

I have 2 Archer C1200's, I am trying to get one network, so the same name and passcode across a number of outbuildings.   One of the routers is set up in the house with the external phone connection.   This works fine and I have this linked to my network account within the Deco app.

 

Then second router is linked via an ethernet cable but is set up in the workshop.  It did have a different network ID, so I have configured that one to be an AP but the passcode for that is the same as the router passcode that was factory set.    This AP is not showing on my Deco app, can I get it added to my app?  Once added to the app , then I would like to add an extra 3 additional M5 repeaters around the area.  

 

If I can't get an AP set up on my app, is there a way to set the network passcode to the same as the my main network in the house?  At the moment I am constanlty having to sign in with 2 different passcodes, depending on which network I am on.

 

Or is there a better way of setting the two routers up to work together as one network?

 

Thanks

Here's a video guide on how to setup a router in AP mode.

To manage your TP-Link routers you'll need the tether app.

Deco app is for managing the Deco systems.

These are the routers supported in Tether app.

If you can't add the C1200 to the tehter app, you still can login via its web management interface - use the static LAN IP address you've set (i.e. http://192.168.1.254)

Once logged in, you can set the AP's SSID and password the same as on your main router.
