I have a wireless router with DD-WRT in one corner of my house and am planning on installing another router with DD-WRT on the opposite end of the house setup as an access point. I'm running both 2.4G and 5G frequencies with the same SSID, password and security protocol (WPA2 Personal).

My question is what channel should I set each radio too (2.4G & 5G on router and the same on the access point)?

How are they connected, with a cable?

Connect the AP LAN-LAN with the main router.

Give your main router the ip address 192.168.1.1 and the AP 192.168.1.2 with 192.168.1.1 as gateway.

Set wifi up on different channels.

For the 2.4 Ghz use channel 1,6 and 11

For the 5 Ghz you can use channel 100 and 116.
