There are many articles on the internet on how to connect an AP to your main router, but this can help distribute your internet around your living space for streaming media, etc. So your main router provides DHCP and LAN services to your AP, and your AP provides those services to clients further from your main router.
Is this what you're looking for? It isn't clear from your posting what you are looking for or what you need to accomplish?
Hi, sorry for my bad first post. I will try to explain it better, but you are right.
The Asus is going to be the main router. I have connected to that router the internet modem and 2 computers using the ethernet. Also i am using the usb for sharing and the wifi to connect 3 devices (mobile, laptop and raspberry pi).
Now i want to extend the network using the new (old) router Netgear Duo WNDR3300. So any device closer to the router netgear will connect to his wifi but using the internet and DHCP from the Asus. So the netgear will be just an access point as you says. The bad news is that i cannot connect both routers using cable. I need to connect them using wireless too.
I was able to do this in the past using two Linksys with dd-rwt firmware.
The firmware on the asus is the merlin build and the netgear has the latest official firm.
I tried to connect them using the built in WPS but it didnīt work.
Any recommendation to achieve this?
Do you know about any other router i could buy to make this work?
I do not want to spend more than 50-60$ and it will be better just to use the netgear, but...
Thank you very much!!
