I have a TP-Link router running DD-WRT that is being used as a wifi repeater.

How do I log on to this router wirelessly?

I can't seem to find its IP address from the main router (also running DD-WRT), off of which this TP-Link router is repeating the wifi signal.

What I see in the main router about the repeater is address 1.1.1.1. But when I try to log in to 1.1.1.1, it doesn't work.

Did you set it up as a repeater using the repeater wiki? You should have noted the IP address you assigned to it.

I must have forgotten to jot it down.

But why isn't that IP address appearing in the main router's admin site?

Idk. I use an ap called Fing, on my apple devices. I scan my network and it shows the Ip addresses of my bridges and repeaters.

I tried Fing at home.

It still can't detect the IP address of the repeater. The funny thing is, Fing lists an IP address next to a TP-Link device. I thought that was the IP address of the repeater bridge, but when I logged on to that IP address, it actually lead to a wifi printer that's connected to the network through the repeater.
