My RUT360 has worked perfectly for about 2 years. To extend the WiFi signals I got a RUTX10 and wanted to configure it as a range extender.
I followed these instructions:
This did not work; the RUT360 worked but RUTX10 was dead. I reset it to factory settings.
Then I followed:
This not work either, and both routers were dead.
I reset both routers to factory settings and re-instated my previous settings to RUT360.
Then I decided to do what I have done for two decades when extending a router; I switched DHCP off on RUTX10 and connected the routers via cable (LAN to LAN).
This did not work. Then I switched DHCP on RUTX10 to “Relay” instead of Off, and now it works.
The routers have different SSIDs.
1 - Will my current (last) configuration be stable over time?
2 - Apart from WiFi between the routers rather than cable, does the two first configurations have any advantages over my last configuration?
