    Using access point to bypass RT-86U with poorly functioning 2.4 Ghz radio?

    Using access point to bypass RT-86U with poorly functioning 2.4 Ghz radio?

    Thanks. I had a difficult time when I did not set up the second router (the access point) with a static IP, as I tried every trick I could find (client list in the main router, Asus device discovery tool, ipconfig, arp -a in command mode, etc.) and could not log back into the AP to have it work...
