Hi All,

I am facing problems with MR3020 Repeater mode configuration.

My Configuration.

Parent Router
ASUS RT-N56U on Stock Firmware
SSID : ASUS
IP: 192.168.1.1
Serves DHCP : 192.168.1.2 till 192.168.1.254

Repeater Router
TL-MR3020 on Stock Firmware
IP: 192.168.0.254

Put the hardware switch to Access Point Mode.
In the configuration i selected Repeater and provided the ASUS RT-N56U's 
SSID (ASUS) and MAC Address and then reboot the MR3020

But now when the hardware switch is set to AP Mode on the MR3020 and booted i just see one SSID but now there is no way to access the WebUI 
i try to access using http://192.168.0.254 but no luck.

And i dont see the range being extended when the MR3020 was on in Repeater Mode and there was no way to verify this as i did not have a WebUI for it.

I then thought that the IP Series is different so i changed MR3020's IP from 192.168.0.254 to 192.168.1.254 so that it matches RT N56U's IP Series.

But even after doing this i am not able to access MR3020's WebUI in AP (Repeater Mode).

Only way to access the WebUI is to change the hardware switch to 3G/4G mode and reboot then i get its SSID and i can access its Web UI.

Where am i going wrong any help would be appreciated.

Figured out how to configure it in repeater mode.

All i had to do was connect the router using LAN port when its in repeater mode to check if it was configured properly.
