Set up wireless access point but wireless devices fail to obtain ip address

Hi, i wanted to set my D7000 as AP router. My main router is Sagemcom F@st 3864 from Optus isp (australia). 

 

First, i set D7000 as bridge mode as i did these steps:

1. Change LAN ip address to 192.168.0.100

2. Disable DHCP

3. Connect LAN port to main router's Lan port

Successful wired internet connection and wireless on the same device but other wireless devices failed 

 

So instead i did other option, enabling Wireless Access Point under advanced settings of D7000. I followed instructions from this link

i set dynamiccaly= Successful wired internet connection but wireless devices failed to obtain ip address

 

Any idea how to solve wireless issue? I am not very experienced

 

Thanks!

i just fixed it a while ago. For AP mode, you plug LAN port of main router to WAN port of D7000 (not LAN to LAN). I wish i figured it out so much earlier.

Hello jhyfre3ak 

 

I would try to factory reset the D7000 then do the AP mode again could be a old setting causing the issues.
