i have Accesspoint WAP200 Model.iam trying to make repeater mode from other routers ( not linksys or cisco) but not works for me.when try to connect to the network which repeated with WAP200 its trying to take ip then failed ( its like DHCP not works in repeater mode)
I have a Cisco WAP200 Wireless-G Access Point - PoE/Rangebooster with the latest firmware 18.104.22.168-ETSI?I’m trying to set it up as a repeater, repeating the wireless signal from a Cisco 877W.I have configured the WAP200 with the same SSID, WPA key, and channel as the 877W.
I have changed the WAP200’s AP Mode setting to Repeater, and picked up the 877W’s MAC Address.The WAP200 is broadcasting and I can connect to the wireless network, but I don’t get DHCP. It’s almost like it’s still in Access Point mode.
I'm trying to setup a WAP200 as a wireless repeater and I am having some problems. The SSID I am trying to bridge is coming from a WRV210.
I on both devices I have the SSID, security, and channel set the same. The WAP200 is set to Repeater mode and I did a site survey to find the WRV210. The WRV210 is set to to allow the WAP200 repeat its signa using auto select, manual with site survey and manual actually entering the MAC address by hand.
Nothing seems to work. I can see the wireless next work but when i connect to the repeater I never get an IP address.
i have a problem with the AP WAP200, i can't make access to web setup. It gives to me the error "Unauthorised" without asks to me user or pass. I tried to reset the AP and i tried to access with others pc and smatphones but the problem persists.
We have an 2504 wireless controller at the office with 5 LAP1142's. At another office we have a single AP1142 which doesn’t quite reach end to end. Ideally I want drop in another AP1142 to provide end to end coverage. Does AP1142 has a repeater mode? If not is there any way to make two AP1142's work with each other so they appear as a singular access point? Can they be configured to handle roaming?
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 22.214.171.124 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?
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.
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 126.96.36.199 FW rev installed, so unless the 188.8.131.52 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.
I'm trying to configure Cisco 1262 AP's to allow me to use the 2.4 gHz radio for client access and the 5.x radio for the repeater connection back to a root AP connected to a LAN.
I have already configured the AP's to associate with each other via the 5.x radio, and have a client connected to the repeater AP via the 2.4 gHz radio. From my laptop on the LAN, I can connect to the repeater AP, but I cannot ping nor otherwise communicate with the distant client.
When I use the 2.4 gHz radio for repeater mode, clients that connect to the repeater AP can be seen and communicated with.Is there something special that needs to be done to get my desired scenario to work?All radios are members of bridge group 1.
I have just installed 3 access points along with 6 repeater access points all running V12.4. They are all AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9 using the 2.4GHz radio. Prior to installation I bench tested that the repeaters would associate with the access points and if one of the access points was turned off the repeaters would automatically roam to another access point. I did not have all 9 devices powered up at the same time, but did have 2 repeaters and 2 access points powered up to simulate association and roaming.
During installation as access points and repeaters were powered up everything behaved as expected (repeaters were associating to access points etc.) however during installation once everything was installed the 3 access points were all powered down for half an hour or so and once powered back on the repeaters did not automatically re-associate until they were re-booted.
I have now configured the repaters with parent MAC addresses to reflect the above current assocaition pattern but not yet powered off the access points to test if this forces re-association as this is now a live operational site!!
Is it normal to have to re-boot the repeaters if ALL 3 access points are powered down at the same time? i.e. If only one access point is powered down will the repeaters automaically roam to another access point o.k.?
we have a couple of AP1262N-E-K9 APs with firmware version 12.4(25d)JA1 operating in autonmous mode. One AP is setup as repeater while all others are in root mode. My goal is to perform the antenna-alignment test through an SSH console on the repeater with a given timeout-value, e.g.:
"dot11 dot11Radio 0 antenna-alignment timeout 4"
However, the behavior of this command is inconsistent as the timeout value is ignored in 20% of the tests. I.e. in 80% of all tests, the scan really runs only 4 s as specified using the "timeout" parameter. In the other 20% of the tests, the "timeout" parameter seems to be ignored: Often the antenna-alignment scan runs for about 140 seconds and in some cases even for 420 seconds. This is problematic as the access point is completely unavailable during the test, i.e. the configuration ssh/web interfaces are not reachable and no clients can associate to the access point. [URL]
Region : UnitedStates Model : TL-WR702N Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 4.18.107 Build 121123 Rel.31456n ISP : COMCAST
This is the 2nd WR702N I have purchased. The first worked as a repeater for a short time and then failed with the fading symptom. I returned it. The second did not work as a repeater even for a short time. The signal is OK for a few seconds and then fades out. I updated the firmware.
So i am trying to Set up a wireless repeater so i can have a better signal in my back yard but i could not set the configurations for my repeater because the gateway (ip address? Not really sure what it is called) would not work when i entered it into the browser. So i went into command prompt to make sure i had the right gateway and it did not even exist.
Just bought a new router and repeater for a wifi hotspot i am currently running.. I thought i was havng problems with the repeater after i change from router to a server, (and i'm now using a router in bridge mode) so the server is managing all the dhcp.. etc, Hence, the router is Running as an access point. The server which is a Hotspot Server does the rest. For some reason, repeaters, do connect to the access point apparently, but when connecting the client to the repeater (instead of access point) I can't get internet access. although i do get access to the repeater setup.and access point setup too.. or if that is the fact that repeaters must be connected to a router, not access point? should I use it as a WDS? or AP-wds? I have a Cisco Lynksys e1200 router (which i'm using as access point) and an Encore ENXWI-1AN45 3 in one range extender?
Trying to setup a repeater down stairs for better wifi signal but am running into a problem. The main router I use for my network is a Linksys WRT54GL. The router I'm trying to hook up as a repeater is a Asus RT-N10+. The issue I'm running into is that they both use the same IP address for the web gui so when I try to configure the Asus it goes straight to my Linksys instead.
I tried to disconnect the Linksys in order to get the Asus going in repeater mode but didn't work. What I'm wanting to do is change the router IP address on the Asus so I can have both of them online at the same time to get the Asus going as a repeater. I tried to change the Asus IP but when I did it asked me something along the lines of whether I wanted to change the DHCP address being it didn't match what I had typed in as the router IP.
facing issues with TP-Link TL-WA801ND while setting it up as a Universal repeater.The AP is a Linksys E3200..and I got the TP-Link to broaden my WiFi at home, I was successful in setting it up, however, after a day or two I get prompted to enter a "WPA2 Enterprise" username/password.I DID NOT setup WPA2 Enterprise, mine is WPA2 Personal...it's peculiar that it works for a bit then reverts to Enterprise.
