so something is likely on .2, use an app like the one i mentioned above, or just ping .2 from a device

 

why are you allocating the AP an address that is part of the DHCP pool? static addresses should be outside the range of the DHCP pool

Because when setting up a router to use as a AP all the videos online saying how it's done say your main router should be set to 192.168.1.1 and second one that you plan to use as a AP should be 192.168.1.2

it doesnt matter what it is, it could be any of the other 253 IP addresses available (ie anything thats not the router). they likely say that to make things tidier. if assigning it a static IP address it should be outside the DHCP pool range of the Router. which yours isnt

 

My router is .1, and my 2 AP's are .8 and .9, my DHCP pool starts at .100-.200

 

you still havent answered if there is a device on .2. have you even checked this?

3 options, change the DHCP pool range on the Asus, or put the AP on an IP address outside the DHCP pool or set the AP to get a DHCP address

 

What does the asus say on the General > Network Map tab under clients?

Starscream122 .... we are all trying to help you here, so bear with the questions please wink

 

What device (phone?  PC?) did you use to ping 182.168.1.2?

 

Was it connected to your network at the time, either wifi or cable?

In theory, if your Asus is defined as 192.168.1.1, why not just fire up the access point, see what IP address has been assigned by the Asus, and simply accept that as appropriate?

 

Once you have that IP address, assign the AP/Ultra hub that IP as static, and that way your network works, and you'll always be able to access its interface as 192.168.1.x thereafter.

 

Even, as you say, 192.168.1.3 works OK, simply accept that and no further headaches smile

   >I used my Windows 10 PC Connected via Ethernet to my RT-AC86U<

 

Then quite possibly the PC was assigned 192.168.1.2 ??

 

You may have to completely release and then renew all IP's before getting the Ultra Hub to grab/be assigned the one you want.  The Hub or the Asus may also be holding 192.168.1.2 under lease (possibly 24 hours).

I will. I am happy with the ASUS router on .1 and the ultrahub on .3... everything is working all good!

Good idea ... as you confirm, all is working pretty much as you want and in reality there is nothing wrong with any IP being assigned to a system device (that's how DHCP worls anyway).  Because you occassionaly want to access the Ultra interface, then locking in the IP will do that for you.

 

I'm of the opinion that your PC has probably been assigned .2 by the Asus, and all your attempts to make the Ultra Hub that will require you to release and then renew the IP configurations ... something you could try at your leisure wink
