Hi

My router isn't showing me all my connected devices. Is there anything I can do?

I tried restarting the devices, etc - they are plugged into the ethernet port of the router.

Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r43209 std (05/21/20)

Thanks

They work?

in Status>LAN you should see them if they are in the same ip range your router is on.

Only reason why you don't see them is that they are still using the old/previous ip range.
Or are both dhcp ip ranges identical?

I'll configure the server this end with an IP address see if that helps.

I'm trying to connect to my wifi extenders via cable and then all ethernet ports seem to of gone down.

Manually setting the IP should tell us if its in the right range.

Kind regards

It was already set manually; and to be fair I have never had trouble, before now.

Shall I just reflash my router?

if you can see the webpage of your router why should you.
Is there an option to just switch off/on one of the connected devices. They should show if they get ip from the router.

Make sure ip is not set hardcoded on the device.

if you have the webpage of dd-wrt on the right top there is a wan ip.
That is?

On the basic tab you will see the initial settings for the ip range of dd-wrt.

What are the settings of the router/dhcp range?

you mention wireless repeaters. Did you check the status/wireless also. The layout is different. There is a list of Mac addresses shown. Anything there?
The ssid the router and the wireless repeaters are using is also same? Password same as before?

wan ip and router dhcp seem ok.

you connect the wifi repeaters via cable?

Unsure if that is an option.
Aren't they supposed to connect eg like any regular laptop and then the cable outlet is also acting as a connection point. Not sure if it will act as a device which connects to the port of the router.....

Yes, the repeaters are being plugged in by Ethernet port for configuration purposes. None of them appear and my local server which is always connected for some reason isn't there.

This is all because I rebooted my router Sad!

TPLink and Belkin. I have 2/3 Netgear ones for pleasure also. None work - will try Netgear now but they didn't work in the first place, hence I bought a Belkin repeater.
