Question RT-AX58U Media Bridge not working


Junior Member
Jun 18, 2020
I have 2 Routers. One that is just functioning as a router and the other that i want to have in a different room with devices only connected by ethernet. I want those two routers to communicate so that the ethernet devices can communicate with the internet.
From what i found with the Router in the main room, I need to set it up as a media bridge. Which i do, but the moment i put in the main wifi name and password. The devices reboots but the connected devices can not connect to the internet and I am having issues connected to that router and the network map on the main router does not show it connected.

I have been struggling for a while trying to get it to work. I have reset it several times and nothing seems to help.

Thank you for any help.
