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'.
