    I need to add a second router to my existing WiFi router. I picked up a TP-Link W9970, and followed this clip about halfway just fine. Then the things he was doing at 7mins in were not corresponding with what I was seeing on my screen.

    You know you're getting old when tech no longer makes sense.

    If you provide a screenshot of what you see, I can say I don't know how to help.

    I think the problem is that he doesn't know how to pronounce "router."

    You’re not suckering me in that easily. That’s a cleverly-disguised Rickroll, isn’t it? Or a clip from 2 girls 1 cup? Or 2 girls 1 Rickroll, or something?

    [face_laugh][face_rofl][face_laugh] ^ Thanks for that.

    Now I hear the Roto-Router jingle (Roto Rooter)

    @Darth Punk, we have a WiFi extender with our router (not a mesh WiFi set up).

    Maybe helpful? Maybe not?[face_dunno]

    Also, have you contacted the manufacturer about this?

    Duct tape is for things that aren't supposed to move.
    WIFI spreads 5G coronavirus so it needs WD-40 to work properly

    UPDATE: So I’ve managed to run a second router from the main WiFi router. Now I can run three Ethernet cables from the back of my second router. Progress.

    What second router is not doing is giving out a WiFi signal. I suppose it’s an option somewhere in the settings I need to apply. Think I might not bother and quit while I’m ahead.
