    Setup wirless router as ap - networking newbie

    Hi, I'm not really that familiar with networking. I just know the terms and some basic knowledge. Somebody did the setup of the network for me.

    Basically, the setup of my network is a WAN connected to Router 1 and a switch connected to the LAN port of Router 1 and Router 2 acting as an AP is connected to the switch. Problem is, the wireless connection keeps dropping so I wanted to change the channel. However, I don't know the IP address of Router 2, so I thought I would just do a factory reset on Router 2. If I do that how do I configure Router 2 act as an AP again?

    Router 1 is a Peplink Balance 310
    Router 2 is a D-Link DIR-615
    Switch is a 3COM Baseline Switch 2024

    Thanks for the link, just one question, will this work regardless if Router 2 is connected to a switch and not directly to Router 1?

    Yes, it will. Most routers contain a switch (multiple ports on the LAN side) anyway, adding another in the mix does not make a difference. What is important is to use only the LAN ports on Router 2 when setting it up as an AP.
