Hi !

First, let me quickly explain my config:

Main router (LAN4) <-----------> (WAN) Secondary router (LAN4) <-------------> (LAN) Main computer
(Wireless) <-----------> (Wireless) LAP201402
(...) <-----------> (...)​

Both routers are RT-AC66U with Asus Merlin 380.59. The secondary is configured as an AP.


As you can see below, on my main router Tools > Sysinfo page, instead of seeing the secondary router, I see a laptop (wireless client of my secondary router). On the secondary router however, all is well.

Why is that so ?

Bonus question:
My computer is connected to the secondary router through CAT5E patch and CAT6 in-wall (all 4 pairs). However I can only seem to get a 100 Full Duplex connection. Any idea on what could be the cause ? (Win 7, GigE network card, latest drivers)


Thank you so much !

Why is that so ?

Key word is "last", in "Last device seen". If you have a switch, and on that switch you have 2 computers, the reported MAC won't be of the switch, but of the last computer that sent data through it. For the switch itself to appear, it would have to have sent a packet of its own.

I was confused because "Link state" mentions the wired link between router1 and router2 so I thought that "Last device seen" should be router2 (since it has an IP address and is therefore a device on the network).

But ok, thanks for the explanation ! ^^'
