tryingto connect 2 bbr1

Hi All,

 

im trying to link 2 bbr1's one being the master one being set to bridge mode.

 

i am on adsl which is working fine on the master router, additional settings of router 1

router ip address 192.168.1.1

dhcp start range has been changed to 192.168.0.3

dhcp range ends at 192.168.1.100

 

router 2

router is in fibre/ethernet mode and in bridging mode

 

router address is 192.168.1.2

dhcp start 192.168.1.101

dhcp end 192.168.254

 

i am trying to extend my lan network by using my old router as a network switch of which i have had success. but as soon as i unplug one of the 3 items the items lose internet signal altogether.

 

Any help gratiously recieved

Any more info required please ask

Re: tryingto connect 2 bbr1

I would have the master setup as:

router ip address 192.168.1.1

dhcp start range has been changed to 192.168.1.3

dhcp range ends at 192.168.1.100

 

and then the other one with DHCP disabled and just running an IP out of the DHCP range of the master:

router address is 192.168.1.2
