Model: Archer C9
Hardware Version: V5
Firmware Version: 1.2.4

I'm trying to setup an Archer C9 to do WDS bridging. The steps I go to:

- Change IP to 192.168.0.2

- Enable WDS for 5Ghz and enter info for the SSID to be bridged

- Disable DHCP

 

I have a desktop PC connected to the bridge router using ethernet. The bridge works at first but the connection drops after an hour or so. Sometimes I can't even ping 192.168.0.2. If I reboot the router it starts working again.

 

Anyone encounter similar issues? I originally had a beta drivier on there but downgraded to the latest release version. Didn't change anything.

The root router is also an Archer C9 (but v1.0).

 

EDIT: To add more info when the connection drops the WDS status changes from 'Run' to either 'Assoc' or 'Disabled'.

Swap the routers to see if the V5 works better as the main and the V1 as the WDS bridge.

 

Bridge the 2.4G, rather than the 5G.

@Tony I swapped the routers and didn't have any luck with that either. Let me try bridging 2.4..

Sounds good, also I would make the SSID names different on the main router.
