Hey guys, I'm trying to extend my router signal but am running into trouble.

 

First, second and third try were successful but only for a few hours. After that, I can't get it to work at all. I've been following these directions...

 

Spoiler

 

I got the directions from a comment on amazon because that's where I bought my 2nd router to use as an extender. I bought this router.

 

My initial router is an AT&T U-Verse router. It's used for the internet and TV service.

 

The only difference from the directions I used is I changed my router extender to 192.168.1.1 instead of 192.168.3.1 because my U-Verse router is 192.168.1.254. Other than that, I pretty much used all the same directions..

 

All and any help is appreciated. I'm open to all questions that lean towards a solution.

When it worked then stopped working the first few times, it was usually overnight so when I tried going on afterwards, there was just no internet connection.

 

Although, now when I try setting it up and it doesn't work at all, the internet goes down completely. Sometimes the TV service too. I always have to hard reset the main router.

AP should have a static ip in the main routers lan subnet

 

Lease should be 24 hours. 2 hrs is too short.  DHCP lease negotiation, for you, starts after 1 hr.

 

WDS isn't supported on all routers.  Your main router has to support it.  If not don't use it.

 

I have a dlink main router with a netgear extender.  Assigned the extender a static ip, set the connect to main router wireless options and set the ssid password which in my case is the same as the main router.  End of story.  Works like charm.
