Hi members,

I used to be with BSNL and recently moved to ACT. I have a AC750 model modem for ACT fibernet and Dlink 2750u which I used for BSNL. The AC750 is not having enough range and I was wondering if I could use the Dlink2750u as a repeater( The 2750u has a bigger range).

With the help of internet I have found a way to connect the 2 modems. I have connected the 2 modems using LAN cable. I have changed the IP address of the 2750u to 192.168.0.5 so that it matches the domain of AC750 which is in 192.168.0.1. Currently I am able to connect to 2750u's WIFI and then ping the AC750 via this network. But internet from AC750 is not flowing out thru this path.

I am ready to redo the whole thing if need be. Can anyone in this forum be kind enough to guide me through this process?

Hello, I'm not familiar with the D-Link interface but here we go.

I see that you've setup the router as a wireless repeater. Since you are using a LAN cable, ideally it would be better to set it as an access point with DHCP disabled.

Login to your dlink router - Setup - "Wireless Setup Wizard" - Operations Mode as "Access Point" and setup your wifi network.
Then go to LAN setup and untick "Enable DHCP Mode" and Save settings.
