I have ADSL modem-router which I connect with my smartphone, my laptop and other devices to use the internet.
I would like to connect a router to the ADSL modem-router in order to get the internet also to the second floor.
What I did is just connected to the router (TP-Link) via laptop and changed the LAN IP address to 192.168.3.1 (in order to avoid IP conflicts then rebooted) then in the wireless setting, I've changed channel to 11, enabled WDS and connected it to bridge the ADSL modem-router
The DHCP of both (TP-Link and ADSL modem-router) are enabled.
Then I've connected the router to the ADSL modem-router using the LAN port of the ADSL modem-router and the WAN port of the router.
This enables me to connect any device to the ADSL modem-router via Wi-Fi and also to the router via Wi-Fi and use the internet in both.
Is it good?
Do you see any problems that I will face in the future as a result of this configuration?
