I have a single wireless router that is providing less than adequate signals so I thought I would add my second router on another floor to provide better signal coverage (to act as a signal booster or if necessary, act as a second WAP)
My first router is set as 192.168.0.1 (255.255.255.0) with DHCP enabled.
How should my second router be configured?
Effectively, I'd like devices to be able to connect to either one if it has to be a second WAP.
I tried putting a direct cable from Router 1 into Router 2's WAN port and it appeared to work but then it stopped. I had Router 2 configured as 192.168.0.7.
I read the article here that said to connect it to the local LAN port on Router 2 but that didn't do anything either.
It appears to be successful by connecting Router 1 to Router 2 through a LAN port on the Router 2. (my cables do connect between the two routers)
I then disabled DHCP on Router 2 and it appears to be working.
Is there a more efficient way to configure this?
