Linking EE router to wireless router-

Hello , having an issue with linking my EE router to a new wireless router via Ethernet, when I do this the new wireless router is not recognised in the settings of the EE router and does not identify. It did once however but when this happened a signal was given out by new router but with no internet. Any ideas on how to to fix this ?? , the purpose of the new wireless router is to have a dedicated vpn ran router.


(the concept does work and has worked at friends house but in this specific case it does not, maybe the drivers of the EE router ?)




Cheers- Richie   👨‍💻

Re: Linking EE router to wireless router-

Which EE router have you? What is the other router?


You could try following the equivalent of To make a second Brightbox as a WAP on your LAN to the main Brightbox with your routers in place of the 1's there.
