    After changing the Wireless mode of my second router to WDS (not WDS + AP), I can't access no longer to GUI of this router in order to administer it. The router doesn't have no longer IP address.

    How can i logon to the router now ?
    Thank for helping

    you are connecting to a LAN slot on the router - not the WAN slot (with a CAT 5 cable), aren't you?

    It depends on how you have set up WDS on your 2nd router.

    I had the same problem. I had the 2nd router set-up the standard way: WDS+AP, MAC addresses crossed of the routers etc. But also switched off firewall and DHCP server as indicated at various posts in this forum. The problem lies in the last setting. After having done that and changing some of the settings (e.g. channel), the 2nd router looses its WDS link to the master and your PC won't be able to obtain an IP address from it as the DHCP server is switched off.

    Solution: put the wired ethernet port of your PC to a fixed IP (within the servicable address pool of the router) and connect wired to the 2nd router. You should be able to get access again this way.

    Worked for me at least.
