How do I set up the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 & HONOR Router 3 as a wireless switch for my old router?

If you already have a wired router in your home, but also require a wireless network for your mobile devices, you can set up the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 & HONOR Router 3 to work as a wireless switch.

 
  • Make sure that the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 & HONOR Router 3 have been set up.
  • The following steps demonstrate the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 routers as an example.
  1. Connecting the cables: Connect an Ethernet cable from the WAN port of the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 to a LAN port on the old router, then power on the HUAWEI WiFi AX3.

  2. Connect your computer to a LAN port on the HAUWEI WiFi AX3, or connect it wirelessly to the router's Wi-Fi network, then open an Internet browser and enter 192.168.3.1 in the browser address bar to log in to the web-based management page.
  3. Enter the Connect to Internet page and select Bridge (AP) in Internet access mode, then click Save.

    If this is the first time you have configured the HUAWEI WiFi AX3, you need to complete the Internet connection wizard before you can enter the Connect to Internet page. In the Internet connection wizard, your router may detect whether the Internet access mode is PPPoE or DHCP. You can select Skip to skip this step and change the Internet access mode to bridge mode in Connect to Internet afterwards.

  4. Your HUAWEI WiFi AX3 can now be used as a wireless switch, and your phone, tablet, and laptop can be connected to its Wi-Fi network.

Your router will automatically toggle off the DHCP service switch when you enable bridge mode.
