Configure ASUS router as Access Point?


Is there a good step-by-step process somewhere for configuring a router as an Access Point (AP) with the G1100, with WiFi disabled on the G1100?


I would like a static IP for my AP so I can always find it for config updates - I can set my ASUS router to be an AP - but get confused with the subnet stuff...

...I saw a thread from 2016, but it did not seem to talk about the static IP and subnet.


Basically, I want a static IP on my (ASUS) AP, with the G1100 set to not provide a conflicting IP via DHCP.


I’d just use my ASUS as a full router, but don’t want to double-NAT, and do not want to lose TV features, or have an unsupported configuration.


BTW, I am an avid reader on dslreports.com, but my searches to date have not found a simple enough posting for my limited knowledge of subnets. Also I was dead tired at the time, but was having trouble getting to the admin screen on the ASUS, hard-wired from PC, immediately after getting FIOS.  I am not completely brain-dead (locked-down security on G1100 pretty well, ran and tested the cat6 with old Fluke tester before tech came), but the AP configuration currently has me stumped.
