Using 2 different model of routers to create a bridge

Hello, I am using the AC1750 as my router with the internet model.  The second router for the network bridge is AC1450.  So far, I followed exactly what the instruction indicated on the AC1450 but what I got after 2nd router reboot is limited connect and no internet.  I cannot get back in the 2nd router using my labtop which connects to it, only by reset it.  Can some one help please?  Thanks.

Re: Using 2 different model of routers to create a bridge

Are you using bridge mode or repeating mode on the second router?

 

You can try looking for the IP address of the 2nd router by logging onto the 1st router and looking at the list of attached clients.  Then enter that IP address into your browser.  If that doesn't, then perform a factory reset.  Push and hold the reset button for 8 to 10 seconds until the lights flash off and on.

Yes, I used it as a bridge mode setting.  I was wondering if you have to assigned to it a static ip before reboot.

You should have the option of assigning either a static IP or using DHCP. The default is DHCP.
