G1100 as Switch/AP after Edgerouter4

Message 1 of 2

New here.  I'm wiring my whole home with Cat 6a and upgraded to FiOS 940/880, with TV and phone.

 

I just bought a Ubiquiti Edgerouter 4 to use as my main router for the house and I'll have at some point a 802.11ax AP for wireless.  By writing my house, I'll take 10 devices out of the wireless signal chain.

 

Until I can save up the coin to buy a nice AP, I still have my G1100.  For whatever reason, when I try to get to use it in bridge mode, it won't pull an IP from the main router.  

 

I disable DHCP on the G1100, set the IP to 192.168.1.2, subnet 255.255.255.0, and plug ethernet from LAN on Edgerouter to WAN on the G1100.

 

Am I missing something for it not to work?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

I have the same setup as you except my G1100 is configured that way a a MoCA adapter. I connect LAN to LAN though. See if that helps.
