RUTX10 as range extender to RUT360

Hi,

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:
https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/RUTOS_relay_/_Wi-Fi_extender_/_repeater_/_bridge_configuration
This did not work; the RUT360 worked but RUTX10 was dead. I reset it to factory settings.

Then I followed:
https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/DHCP_Relay_configuration_example
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.

Questions:
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?

Hello SteinarD
Welcome to the Teltonika Community :smiley:

The thing to note here is that the RUT360 router must be on a different LAN subnet, than the other router RUTX10, which is also implied in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INGKWNqnZZ0, otherwise IP conflicts will occur.
Regarding your query
1 - Will my current (last) configuration be stable over time?

  • Since this is a wired connection, it should be stable, but since there is limited information regarding your solution, we cannot confirm

2 - Apart from WiFi between the routers rather than cable, does the two first configurations have any advantages over my last configuration?

  • Not much, again since there is limited information’s regarding your solution, we cannot confirm

Please revert to us in case the issue persists

Thanks
