I have a TP-Link Archer A7 router in my house. I also have a TP link range extender for my second floor which works real well. I have a shop about 125' away. I have burried conduit and ran Cat 6 out there. I bought a second Archer A7 router and thought it would "mesh" just like my range extender. It does not though....I have 2 networks now. I was researching ASUS routers and think theirs may work like i want. Basically I want one network. what is my best route to accomplish this?? Thanks in advance

Your shop i am assuming is running another router?
Your shop needs a switch, or you need to turn off DHCP on the secondary router, as well as move the connection from WAN to a LAN port.
