Model: Archer A7  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I successfully installed a new Archer 7 router.  Working great.

 

I have 5 other routers on my home network.  They are all Linksys routers.

 

I can login to the Archer just fine, but when I type in the IP addresses of the other routers, the pages won't open.

 

Is there a setting on my Archer that I need to change so I can locate the other routers?

 

Thanks.

Look at the DHCP client list to see the connected devices. (Advanced > Network > DHCP Client).

 

If your other routers are not listed there, then they are likely assigned a static IP. I'm not sure how your other routers are connected to the A7, but if through the WAN, that may be statically assigned an IP not consistent with the A7 LAN network.

 

So if the A7 is giving out 192.168.0.100~199 IP addresses, and your Linksys router has the WAN set for IPs of 192.168.1.x then the Linksys IPs need to be changed. 

 

If the IP addresses are good, then check the settings of the Linksys router as it may be blocking logging in from the WAN interface.

@Tony Thanks.  That did the trick.

 

You're a genius.

 

Plus, I learned something today.

 

Thanks again!
