I currently run the ASUS RT-N56U as my main router and just picked up the ASUS RT-N10+ as a secondary router. The main purpose of this secondary router is to be used upstairs (modem/current router is downstairs) on a blu-ray player that does not have wifi internet, only ethernet. I am just wondering what the best way to set this up would be? Bridge, AP, repeater?
The secondary router will not have an ethernet connection to the internet so it needs to get it's connection wirelessly (and thus be able to give an internet connection to the ethernet based blu-ray player via a LAN port).
I am completely new to trying this type of setup. Thanks for any help you all can give!
I tried setting up the rt-n10+ to be a bridge but was having issues with it saying "no ethernet cable connected" and seemed to have an issue with the internet while it was on (I changed the ip address by one number from the default router). I'm guessing there are some settings or something that i missed turning on and or off?
I recently flashed the RT-N10+ with the latest build of DD-WRT. I followed every step word for word from the DD-WRT Wiki Client Bridged article but I still can't seem to get a connection to the RT-N10+ when I disconnect the ethernet cable. I try connecting to the new ip setup for the router and it just gets me the loading sign and then eventually times out.
I have tried Client mode and Repeater Bridge Mode and nothing so far. It actually seems now that when the RT-N10+ is powered up it is interfering with the other router.
The RT-N56U is setup for hybrid mode in the bridge settings.
