Thank you for the reply,
I will be more specific, I need to know what configuration is required for the host connected to a client router (Notebook 4 ) to reach the host (Notebook 2) connected to the host router, for example, ping traffic from Notebook 4 to Notebook 2 and vice versa.
Could you please tell me the configuration? I could able to ping from the client router to the host router and to the host connected (notebook 2 ) to the host router. But I can't able to ping host router from Notebook 4.

I have a question regarding the Network Configuration, did you add the wifi or eth0 interface to the bridge in Network->interface->Lan settings at the client router?.
You only showed how to modify the Ip address, I see the br-lan interface, but the interfaces bridged to it are not visible. Can you please share the configuration.
The traffic from the host PC (connected to the client router) has to be forwarded from the ethernet port to the WiFi interface (wlan0/wlan1/wifi0/wifi1 or anything, naming doesn't matter) of the client router, so that the client router forwards the traffic to the host router. I know that the briding is not allowed in STA/client mode, did you use ip tables/ebtables ? to forward the traffic ?

you are my hero in every way. I've spent hours trying to configure it correctly with no luck. Messing with DHCP and DNS seems like what was creating an issue as I reset and followed your directions and had it operating perfectly right away. I LOVE YOU! THANK YOU SO MUCH
