How do I see the IP addresses of devices connected to a range extender?

I have just added a range extender to my network and connected several devices to it. When I look at my list (under Devices), any of the devices connected to my normal wifi network show an IP address but any of the devices connected to my range extender just say "In range". Is there a way to get Fing to see the IP addresses of devices that are connected to the range extender?
Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Jrmcanada
    Are you using another router setup as a range extender?

    I'm not using IPv6. I'm not using another router as a range extender. I have my main router and now I have added a range extender to provide better a better wifi connection for the exterior lights on the front of my house. Previously, everything was connected directly to the wifi from the router. Now these exterior lights are connected to the wifi from the range extender. All of the devices still connected directly to the router have IP addresses in Fing. But the lights connected to the range extender just say "in range".

    Is the IP range of the extender the same? The same subnet?

    Yes ... the extender and router are on the same subnet - 192.168.0.*

    Thanks for info @Jrmcanada
    If you are using another router as range extender then you won't be able to see devices connected behind it. The reason for that is another router creates their own separate network gateway than the main router and Fing is not able to see that gateway thus not able to read devices on that network.

    Hi.I'm not sure I understand. I thought the TP-Link RE450 was a range extender. Is it a router?
