new router trouble
Have a fiber modem connected to a wifi router. Need to extend the reach of this network so we ran two cat5 cables to external buildings, one is 120' away, the other is 250' away. Installed Archer A fifty four router in one building and tried to set it up as Access Point to existing network. Plugged cable into wan port and turned on router. Lights came on. Quick setup guide shows unit has 4 lef lights, but it actually has 5. The one not shown in guide appears as a desktop computer. First 4 leds light up including this one, but the one shown in user guide to indicate internet access does not.
i changed setup to be a range extender and this time was able to tell the new router the name of the network to extend. However the internet led still does not light up.
all we want to do is use the wired connection and the new router to extend the reach of the existing network.
