I am having an issue with my network that started when we got a new router.

The main router is the one that was replaced, and it's a Netgear R6300v2. It's plugged directly into the modem and has a wireless network. That is what I connect to with my laptop.

The other (second) router is a Netgear R6100 which is set up to a a Wireless Access Point. In the Modem port on that router I have a wireless adapter.

To have them conencted, I use the WPS button on the main router and then press the WPS button on the adapter. This worked just fine with the old main router, but since getting the new one it will be connected for a short amount of time (half hour to one hour) and then it disconnects and I have to reconnect it. I am honestly not very good with networking so not sure if there is a better way to do this. I am trying to keep it wireless.
