Cisco Wireless :: Setting Up Another WAP4410N As Repeater?

Apr 20, 2011

Currently I have a WAP4410N setup and would like to add a second WAP4410N but as wireless repeater. I want my users to have wireless access without the need to keep changing the wireless connection based on their location within the factory.

The AP Mode on teh WAP4410N gives me the options below, but I am not sure which one is the correct one:

Option 1 - Wireless WDS Repeater
Option 2 - Wireless Client/Repeater

Below is the link from cisco with explanation. [URL]

Also, if have WAP54G, can I setup this unit to be a wireless repeater with the WAP4410N devices? or all repeaters must be of the same model? Existing WAP4410 is setup to operate at Wireless B/G Mixed mode.

Cisco Wireless :: Setting Up WAP4410n As Repeater

Apr 20, 2011

I need setting up a WAP4410n v 2.0.1.0 as a repeater. Warning, this is the first time I have worked with a repeater. I have tested with a netgear router and a Linksys 160n router. Unfortunately I only have the netgear to continue testing with since the Linksys is at my customer’s site. I can get my hands on a Linksys E3200 if I have to. I have tried a number of setting combinations and I still cannot get the signal to be repeated.  So this is what I think the setup should be:I setup the router and the WAP4410n repeater to have the same ssid and channel. For security I first tried to have both the router and the repeater to use WPA2 personal using TKIP then I read that there is a problem using WPA2 with version 2 of the firmware so I then tried using WEP having both the router and repeater using the same key. I selected Wireless WDS repeater mode. I did a site survey and selected my router. Now from what I understand, which is very little, this is all I should really need to do. I have left all of the other settings to the default values. So what am I missing?

Cisco Routers :: Setting Up WAP4410N As Repeater To Extend Signal Of E2500?

Apr 18, 2012

Im having problems with setting up my cisco WAP4410N as a repeater to extend the signal of cisco E2500.It works fine when there is no password to be set on both devices. But when either one of these devices had beenset a password on it, then WAP4410N failed to extend the signal of E2500.
 
I tried steps as below:
 
1. Same password type in WAP4410N and E2500.

2. Different password type in WAP4410N and E2500.

3. Set password in WAP4410N ONLY.

4. Set password in E2500 ONLY.
 
All steps above makes WAP4410N fail to extend the signal range of E2500. WAP4410N successfully works as a repeater to extend the signal of E2500 when there is no password to be set on both devices.

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410N As Repeater

Jul 20, 2010

I would like to ask for assistance on how to configure one unit WAP4410N access point to work as repeater to one unit WRT120N wireless router.
 
As a background, I had one WRT120N already in my house before I bought one WAP4410N as advised by a Linksys guy. I wanted to wirelessly extend the signal of my WRT120N wherever its signal is so low around my house. The WAP4410N should work as repeater to WRT120N.
 
I already configured WAP4410N to work as repeater by enabling all the  choices in its wireless AP mode like the  “wireless WDS repeater” and the “wireless client/repeater” but to no avail. I successfully setup a similar scenario before using the old pair of one WRT54G and one WAP54G. I replaced the old  pair with the newer one ( WRT120N and one WAP4410N).
 
Is the tandem of WAP4410N and WRT120N can be configured technically as like as what I wanted? Do I need to upgrade the firmware of both devices? Did I miss something in the configuration?

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410N Way To Add Another Repeater To Configuration

Dec 10, 2012

I would like to provide WiFi in a big house of 4 floors so I have installed 1 WAP4410N wired to the Internet router to act as access point and I have configured 3 others WAP4410N as WDS repeater of the first one.In the first one (the AP), I have checked the option "Allow Wireless Signal to be repeated by a repeater" then entered the 3 repeaters' MAC addresses as allowed devices to repeat the signal.
 
Is that configuration OK ? Is there any way to add another (a fourth) repeater to this configuration ? Because there is only 3 fields to specify allowed repeaters' MAC addresses in the AP.

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410n As A Repeater To Old 3com Router

May 17, 2011

I just bought WAP4410N from about 3 days ago, I would like it to work as a wireless repeater to my 3com router model 3CRWDR100A-72. In the router setup page I enabled WDS, made a search for the wireless networks and I found the WAP signal and the router already got its MAC address. I went to AP mode in the WAP4410N, enabled the WDS repeater and made a site search for the router and got its SSID and MAC address.
 
Although all the above steps, everytime I connect any client to the WAP4410N I can not connect to the internet, all what I got is just the IP of the WAP and subnetmask without any default gateway nor DNS
 
In addition I tried to setup the WAP as wireless client epeater, but the same thing hapen, I can not connect to the internet through the WAP.
 
I am using WPA encryption on the router but I did not get any notification to enter the pass key during the setup of the WAP, which is strange for me!
 
Do I have to change my 3com router to linksys one as the 3com is not compatible with the WAP?

Cisco Wireless :: Sometime WAP4410N Drops In Repeater Or AP Mode

Sep 21, 2010

I also have problems with this type of accespoint, i have 2 (one in AP mode and the other in Client/Repeater mode).
 
Very often the connection between the pc and the repeater, and also between the 2 accespoints just "drops" out (like its resetting itself).
 
The accespoints are in enough range of eachother, so thats not the problem.
 
After the contact with Cisco here in Holland they said this type (4410N) is not stable with the 2.0.0.5 firmware, and its also limited to the B and G (not N) wireless, because else the accespoint will be even less stable??.
 
When can we expect a propper solution to this Cisco problem?

Cisco WAP4410N In Wireless Client / Repeater Mode?

May 26, 2012

1) Apparently, my Cisco modem likes to assign new IP addresses to things, so I didn't figure out the web access page until an hour in (was NOT 192.168.1.245)

2) Do I input the same IP address, subnet, DNS and default gateway as my Cisco modem? It has a wireless router and switch bundled in, should I use the wireless network's MAC address or the wired?

Currently, it's set to 'automatically configure':

IPv4
Local IP Address: 192.xxx.x.xx
Subnet Mask: 255.xxx.xxx.x
Default Gateway: 192.xxx.x.x
Primary DNS: 64.xx.xxx.xxx
Secondary DNS: 0.0.0.0

I can access the page fine, but I cannot get the wireless client working...

3) I did a site survey and found my existing network and inputted its SSID and MAC address, but nothing happens. I still get one bar on my wireless devices indicating the AP isn't working.

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410N Bridge / Repeater Mode

Sep 21, 2010

I have just been escalated to Level 3 support about my bridging issues.Bridge / Repeater mode configuration separated by 150 feet. Worked perfect for over 3 months.Upgraded firmware due to lockups starting to happen, now cant get the bridge / repeater to work longer than 15 min.After MANY support calls, new devices sent (version 2's) still no luck.
 
Talked to Marcelo at1 866 606 1866 and he stated that the Bridge / Repeater mode will not be supported farther than 50 Feet.(seems like a cop out to me) He didn't seem to have an answer as to why it worked for 3 Months other than interference Of which I have ran spectrum analyzers and see no Interference. **** even 10 feet away I cant get the units to work longer than 15 min.So I definitely think the 50 foot thing is a BS answer.
 
Also they have told me that External Antennas are not supported with these devices.Again even though People 500 feet away connect just perfect (without a bridge / repeater mode) with 50% coverage!
 
so here I am (spent 600 bucks) on bricks.. and nobody will support the device and I cant seem to get my money back.I have 8 customers with these devices, I am not going to use Cisco any longer. However will continue to fight this,as we all seem to have the same BS issues.

Cisco Wireless :: Use WAP4410N As Repeater On WPA2 And EAP-TLS WLan

Dec 21, 2010

Can a WAP4410N be used as a repeater on an existing WPA2 + EAP-TLS WLAN? The existing WLAN is on a Cisco 871W router; we hope to use a WAP4410N as a repeater to extend it.
 
I've not had much luck so far with the "repeater" and "WDS repeater" AP modes on the 4410. I'm either configuring it wrong, or perhaps the 871W needs a config tweak? Or perhaps the 871's wireless can't be repeated like this?

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410N Work In Client-Repeater Mode?

Dec 7, 2009

I have purchased 4 of these devices about 2 months ago and have experienced all of the issues reported within this thread.  The came with the 2.0.0.5 FW rev installed, so unless the 2.0.0.5 on the cisco DL site is different, nothing I can do with that.I've tried making them work as stand alone AP's, Bridge<-> Bridge, etc... all modes seem to lock up eventually needing a reboot to get any functionality back.Ultimately, I need to make them work in AP<->Client-Repeater mode.  I've not been successful in making them work in any mode for a prolonged period of time.
 
having just rfound this thread today, I have not tried hard coding the NIC's to 100/full, but will give it a try.  If it works, great, but then that would defeat the purpose of buying an N radio AP.  I would like the potential 300Mbps throughput.

Cisco Wireless :: E3000 With WAP4410N As Repeater For Extending Network Coverage

Dec 20, 2010

I am trying to setup an E3000 router and extending the network with a WAP4410N acting as a repeater.

I am faced with the same problem and it looks like it all comes down to this: without the WAP4410N having a physical connection to the LAN, it will not connect to the E3000 as a wireless client whether it's configured in AP mode: WDS Repeater or in client/repeater.
 
I've tested with various permutations that have been explored in the various discussions: matching channels/bandsmatching and non-matching SSIDs matching security settings using site survey to set the mac address of the E3000 (ensuring it's the MAC of the 2.4Ghz wireless)setting a static IP on the WAP4410Nensuring both devices are on the same subnet. Any way to be truly successful with this pair up of E3000 & WAP4410N or is it simply a technical product limitation?

Cisco Wireless :: Setting Up Aironet 1142n As Repeater?

Aug 9, 2012

I've just recently purchased the Aironet 1142n and am hoping to set it up as a repeater. I've followed the documentation here: [UEL] but am still having problems.
 
What I'm trying to achieve is: I have an adsl router (TP-link W8960N) at the front of the house but the wireless signal does not reach all the way to the end of the house. I am trying to set up the aironet 1142n to act as a repeater and place it in the middle of the house and hopefully that will extend the wireless signal to the end of the house and remove the dead spots. I would like to do this without having ethernet cables running all over the place and have been trying to configure the aironet 1142n to no avail. Every time I set the aironet 1142n to "repeater" it automatically coverts back to "access point" under role of radio network.
 
I guess my main question first of all is, can I set the aironet 1142n as a wireless repeater? And if so, where am I going wrong in my configuration?
 
I've just read that " Repeater access points running Cisco IOS software cannot associate to parent access points that that do not run Cisco IOS software."
 
Does this mean the aironet 1142n set up as a repeater will not work if the original access point (in this case, the TP Link adsl wireless router) isn't a cisco brand?

Cisco Wireless :: Setting RV180W In WDS Bridge And Repeater Without Any Different Result

Oct 14, 2012

I recently bought one RV180W and two WAP121 in order to make a wireless extension of a network.I configured RV180W as Router and the three of them have the same SSID and password.Also, I added in RV180W WDS configuration both MAC Addreses of WAP121's and in WAP121's WDS configuration the MAC Address of RV180W.Even I tried in WAP121's with and without encryption using the same WPA Key of the RV180W.
 
The thing is that is not working at all. They work great separately but right WAP121 can't stablish WDS link with RV180W neither do the left WAP121 with RV180W.I tested WDS configuration of WAP121's and they can see each other between them using standard WDS configuration, so I assume that WDS function of WAP121's works great.Finally I try the same config but setting RV180W in WDS Bridge and WDS Repeater without any different result.Do I have any chance to make the topology I showed up would work? How do I have to configure the RV180W and WAP121's?

Cisco Wireless :: Setting Up Wireless Repeater Using 1242AG Access Points?

Jul 4, 2011

I have problem setting up wireless repeater using Cisco 1242AG access points. Here is the setup and problem - The location has 2 1242AG APs  and a WLC (2206) which will be used by PDAs. One of the AP was converted to Lightweight AP and is wired. This AP is up and working and PDAs are able to connect to it.  There is 1 WLAN and it uses Local EAP (LEAP) as authentication. Layer-2 security is configured as WPA/WPA-2 with 802.1X authentication. Under AAA servers Local-EAP is enabled and a profile (with LEAP enabled) is used. Local users are configured for login. As said PDAs are able to connect and it is working without any problem.
 
WLC (LEAP with local users) -----> LAP ----> Repeater AP
 
But the 2nd AP has to be configured as repeater was configured to repeater mode (refering to the document) and was placed. The WLC can see a client (with APs MAC address) but it is probing. The AP is still Automonous AP. Also username and password is configured for authentication. But still the radio on the AP is not up and it is in reset state.

Cisco Wireless :: 802.11 WAP4410N To WAP4410N Backhaul Using N Protocol?

Apr 30, 2011

I have the following equipment:
 
Cisco 871W router
2x WAP 4410N APs running 2.0.3.3

I currently have 1 AP connected to the router via copper.  The AP to AP link is over 802.11.  I have attached a diagram reflecting the current topology.
 
The AP-to-AP link will come up utilizing B/G/N mixed mode; however, the connection is basically unusable.  About 30% of the traffic is dropped, while the packets that do make it have a consistently volatile latency, anywhere from 15 to 1500 ms. I have had success using G-only and B/G mixed.  The link is stable (I have had the best results with B/G).  The problem is, I didn't buy the 2nd 4410N to run the G protocol.  I would like to connect the APs running either B/G/N (hopefully negotiating to N) or N only.  I am wondering if there is a certain configuration I can utilize (perhaps using WDS repeater or bridge versus Wireless Client/Repeater?), or a firmware upgrade set for release that can make this happen for me.
