Hi all,

I currently live in a serviced apartment and have to use the complex' shared WiFi (i.e, I'm not in control of the router). To improve WiFi coverage, as well as increasing security, I have a RT-AC68U that I set up as a repeater. I used the GUI wizard while setting it up and chose to obtain IP automatically.

Everything is working great and my devices can now connect to the WiFi provided by my RT-AC68U instead of the building WiFi.

My question is, how do I now connect to my unit? I have tried but the url doesn't resolve. My network's default gateway is but I cannot connect to that either (I'm guessing this may be the IP address of the router?).

So my question is: How can I figure out the IP address of the repeater or make the url resolve correctly. I have a linux, windows and IOS devices connected to the network if that matters.
