Range Extender, static IP Issue


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have some issues understanding how to use the Range Extender:

I have two Shelly Plus 1 PMs, one of which has a poor Wi-Fi signal. Therefore, I want to use the Range Extender. However, I encounter the following problem when assigning a static IP address:

General:

  • Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (Router)
  • Network Mask: 255.255.255.0

Shelly I:

  • Strong Wi-Fi signal
  • Range Extender active
  • Access Point activated with password
  • Static IP: 192.168.2.237

Shelly II: I want to assign a static IP of 192.168.2.231. However, when I enter the settings under "Static IP," no connection is established.

Settings:

  • IP: 192.168.2.231
  • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (Router)
  • DNS: 192.168.2.1 or empty

If I don't assign a static IP address, Shelly II connects, but it doesn't have the desired IP address. Instead, it gets the IP of Shelly I with 192.168.2.237:13740.

If I recall correctly, the range extender creates it's own network onto which clients connect.

https://support.shelly.cloud/en/support/solutions/articles/103000222505-range-extender-functionality

This network has its own IP range and the Shelly is the DHCP server for that network.
The network is `192.168.33.1/24`.

The web port (port 80) of connected Shelly will be accessible via the "Extender Shelly" on port `800x` where `x` is the client IP of the Shelly.
So a Shelly connected to the range extender at `192.168.2.237` with an IP of `192.168.33.2` will be accessible at `192.168.2.237:8002`
