How to use as access point then? Hahah as long as can use..thanks
plug from LAN to LAN lor.. then disable DHCP on xiaomi. i dunno if there is any built-in access point mode for it. if there is, it will simplify a lot..

Hi All,

Can advise the Mi Router 2 (1TB) can use as below configuration?

ONT -> SingTel router -> Mi Router 2 -> SingTel TV

I'm using iphone, is there an app to configure the router?

Any review on the quality of this router? or the typical Asus, TPLink is better than this?

1. set the ip no of mi to an unused number (out of singtel router's dhcp range)
2. disable dhcp on mi
3. mi on normal mode
4. plug in the ethernet cable from router to mi's lan1.
5. connect mio using ethernet cable, connect to mi's lan2.

guys.. need help on xiaomi routers and yi camera.

this is what i have.

Starhub ONT --> Xiaomi New Mi Router(1tb) in study room --> wired to Mini router in living room --> Yi camera in living room

The Mi router is set as main, followed by Mini router as bridge mode.

The yi camera in the living room cannot connect to the mini router.
But if i move it to the study room, it can connect to the Mi router.

my intention is for the yi camera, to connect to the mini, and to stream data to the Mi router for storage...

anyone have any ideas please?

don't use bridge mode.

1. set the ip no of mini to an unused number (out of Mi router's dhcp range)
2. disable dhcp on mini
3. mini on normal mode
4. connect mini to mi router by lan, normal lan port to normal lan port, don't use wan port.
5. You can access the hdd via mini's ip no. You can either connect to mini's wifi or mi router's wifi.

somehow cant work.
I get the meaning what you trying to ask me to do.
simply extend the 2nd router, mini, to the same network by using the same Lan to Lan.

However, i can surf net using the mini in living room. i simply cannot connect the Yi camera to router.
if i move the camera to study room and connect to the New Router... it works.

move it out again, fail...

giving up here...

don't use bridge mode.

1. set the ip no of mini to an unused number (out of Mi router's dhcp range)
2. disable dhcp on mini
this is the DHCP server as a service right? not the WAN way of getting ip.

3. mini on normal mode
4. connect mini to mi router by lan, normal lan port to normal lan port, don't use wan port.
5. You can access the hdd via mini's ip no. You can either connect to mini's wifi or mi router's wifi.

Anyone who has the Mi WiFi Mini can confirm if it has the option to make it as a repeater?
Thanks~

Seems it can only repeat/extend signals at 2.4Ghz not the 5Ghz.

For the Mini? If it is then really is bad, was expecting to it being able to repeat both 2.4GHz and 5GHz
