I must be missing something simple. I'm trying to setup an old Huawei wireless router as a 2nd access point by following the instructions from @Jase2985 in this old post here, but I'm having problems.

 

https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=173220#1305877

 

http://www.practicallynetworked.com/networking/convert_wifi_router_to_access_point.htm

 

Basically I'm falling at the first hurdle. Note my current router (an Asus RT-AC58U) has a DHCP IP pool within 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254. I can login into the admin page for the HG630b, and type an alternate static IP (I've tried 192.168.1.252) but when I hit Submit to commit the settings, the HG630 basically becomes unresponsive and I have to do a factory reset to be able to see the admin page again.

 

Seems like there is some kind of conflict going on - but I'm no expert at these types of issues. Note the IP address of the HG630b is 192.168.1.254.

 

Any ideas most welcome.

when you hit submit are you using the new IP address (192.168.1.252) to try and get back into the HG630's admin page?

 

i would also change the DHCP range on the Asus to .2-200 to give you 50 odd static addresses that wont get used by the asus

What @Jase2985 said.... :) 

 

Might pay to disable DHCP on the 630b also?

Thanks all. I changed the upper limit on the DHCP pool on my main router to 192.168.230, and then I was able to login to the HG630 using the new 192.168.1.252 address. Must have been a conflict with my LAN and the default login ip for the 2nd router.

All good, working now!

@mattyb were you using the 192.168.1.252 ip address to login previously?
