Got Asus 520GU and N16. N16 flashed to tomatousb 1.28 (K2.6 beta) ext
version, while 520GU justtomatousb 1.28 (k2.4).
Plan to use N16 as primary router connected to cable modem, 520GU as
secondary connected to my Canon AIO printer.
Followed all sorts of setting suggestion floating online but could not get
it work. What I did:
1. Primary router:
Normal WAN setting, 192.168.1.1 ip, DHCP enabled
use WPA-AES encryption
choose band (5,6,11)
link to the wireless MAC of the secondary
2. 2ndary router:
set 192.168.1.2 ip, set gateway to be 192.168.1.1, static DNS (tried using
192.168.1.1 as well as the DNS given by ISP shown in my main router
Disabled DHCP (also tried enabling it, but giving ip in different sections
from the main router, for example, main router is giving 192.168.1.100-110,
2ndary is giving 188.8.131.52-160)
use WPA-AES encryption with exact same SSID and password as the main router.
Use the same band as main router, 5,6 and 11 respectively
link to the wireless MAC of the main router.
USB support enabled, and I could see my printer in the list.
When I configured the 2ndary router, I just plugged in an Ethernet cable,
disconnect from the main router's connection, and I could see the main
router in the device list, with this rrsi (showing -48db),and also
However once I unplugged the cable and get on the main router connection
again, I can no longer log into the 2ndary router by 192.168.1.2, in the
main router's GUI (192.168.1.1) I can see the 2ndary router in the device
list with rrsi (showing some db number), but there was no performance bars,
no ip showing as well. On the other hand, all other wireless devices could
be seen in main router's device list (all of my wirelessly connected laptops
), with both rrsi number and the performance bars as well as their ip
I could not add printer by 192.168.1.2 ip address as well.
Can you guys help me out with this?
Thanks a lot
