I've had an Archer C5v2 FW 3.17.1 Build 20160201 Rel 611368 and love it. I just bought a CR700v1.1 and would like to primarilly use the AC1750 that it provides. Only issue is that I have about 16 devices bound on my C5's ARP list (a mix of wired and Wi-Fi) and would really prefer to have all addressing and routing functions handled by it. ALL devices need to be able to be accessed by ALL other devices. I also would prefer that the CR700 handle any IPv6 addressing and routing as it seems to be a bit more automagic. Can I just connect a LAN port from the CR700 to a LAN port on the C5, turn off IPv4 DHCP on the CR700 and call it good? Do I need to set the internal address of the CR700 as the default gateway on the C5 to allow things to access the interwebs? From what I've been able to find, putting the CR700 in bridge mode would work if it didn't kill the Wi-Fi on it and the C5 could DHCP devices on the WAN. I swear the old C5 firmware had some kind of option for an upstream router. Or if I use the individual wireless bridging options on the CR700, would those let any Wi-Fi devices that connect to the CR700 get DHCP from the C5?
Thanks in advance.
