Linksys Access Point :: WRT320N Access Point Vs Range Extender
Dec 14, 2011
Have a WRT320N router at one end of the house in the basement. Would like to boost signal to other end of the house. Which product should i use, an access point or a range extender? My house is also wired with Ethernet cable and I could plug the access point into an Ethernet port at the end of the house where the signal is weak.
I have a Belkin F5D7132 Range extender/access point set up as a repeater for my wireless router as its range isn't adequate but this doesn't provide enough wifi signal strength. Can I set my Belkin device as an access point connected by Ethernet to the router?
I have a N600DB configured as a primary router. I got another playmax n600HD router which I want to configure as an access point that extends my network upstairs and allows me to attach some wired devices like my ps3. I followed the basic principles of setting as access point and my locally connected ps3 and NAS are communicating but no Internet access. How the 2nd router can connect to the internet?
I'm currently using my WRT320N router as an access point (connected to another linksys router), but I've lost my username and password to access the web-based utility. So I need to press the reset button and set it up again. Currently everything is working fine, but I've forgotten how to configure the router for this purpose, and I can't find instructions in the user's guide online. I seem to remember it being troublesome. I know I have to assign a different IP address (currently I'm using 192.168.1.113.) What other settings (if any) need to be changed?
I'm trying to configure WAP610N access point to enlarge my existing wifi network (WRT320N router). I configured WAP610N with the same SSID. WAP610N is on channel 6 and WRT320N is on channel 1. Both have WPA2-Personal encryption, the same key.The problem is that no matther what, my laptop connects only to the router (WRT320N):I tried to put the laptop near the WAP610N, disconnect / connect to the network, walk with the laptop between the router and ap... it only connects to the router.
When I change my WRT320N routers IP address to use it as an access point only and bring it in the IP range of my ccombined modem/router I'm not able to view the setup page via the new IP address. I have tried to change the IP from the default 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.178.2. After changing and applying the changes I restarted the router and tried to access the router via the new address. This was not possible am I doing something wrong or did I forgot something?
I have a self-contained (not connected to the Internet) network where I have a WRT54G wireless router serving several laptops at Location A, but will need the ability to connect laptops at Location B, over 100' away. I also have a WRT54G2 laying around. Is it possible to use that to wirelessly get the laptops at Location B connected to Location A, or is that only possible using a cabled connection between both routers?
How do I connect and configure my WAP54G wireless access point to my new Cable Modem? I have it connected to the modem but I cannot access it to configure it. It appears to be working but before I got the cable modem I had it connected to a router and it was set-up with a static IP address. With my new ISP, I no longer have a static IP address so I am trying to configure the WAP54G to use DHCP. Trying to access it thru the internet at 192.168.1.245 does not work.
I just bought an LG Bluray DVD player (BD390) which is unable to find the access point in my home network.My router is a WRT54G, ver. 2.2, running firmware: Ver.4.21.1. My home network uses high speed cable with two computers on the wireless network, all working with no problems.The router is on the second floor but the two computers and the new BD390 are on the first floor - about 35 feet away. I have the wirelss security set to none and use only the specific computer MAC addresses to allow connection to this network.
I found directions in the forum for a setup using the LG BD390 but with a different Linksys router. I changed the security to WPA (AES); the Beacon interval from 100 to 75; the Fragmentation Threshold from 2346 to 2304; and the RTS Threshold from 2347 to 2307. The DVD wireless connection still failed to find my network. There is a "Push button" connection feature on the BD390 setup which I tried, but the only "button" on the router I could find was in the basic wireless setting, a green icon for the wireless SSID setup. No connection was made there either.
The recommendation connection from the LG manual is for a network cable, but that would be over 50 feet and a real pain to connect, so I would prefer WiFi.
I have a WAP610N that I would like to use as a range expander on an existing wireless network. I want to be able to seamlessly move around the house and yard using both my router and WAP without getting disonnected. Can the WAP610N be configured to work this way? Any special settings to be aware of?
I'm trying to use the WET610N as a sort of access point/range extender for a single device, a remote monitoring system installed in a barn. It records temperature, power use, etc, and reports it to the internet. The barn is about 250 feet from the house where the wireless router is installed. There will be very little data flowing over the link.Setup on the WET610N went fine, and it saw the remote router at 10% strength and connected to it fine. However, when I attempt to get Status, the screen shows the headings on the left and no data on the right. Attempting to access the internet through the link on my MacBook Pro failed.
I have just bought a E4200 and updated to latest FW version 1.0.02-Build13 It works very well for me so far But in the repote part of my home, the signal is too weak :-(
I have a WAP54G (HW-rev-2), which I would like to use to expand my wireless range, but so far I have not been able to get a setup where I can see the wireless coverage expanded. I have placed the WAP54G inside the wireless coverage range of the E4200 with good signal level.
I have tried various setup combinations and searched articles, but so far I have not been able to get this working as expected..
Before I spend more hours on this or decide to dump the WAP54G, I would like to know if this setup is at all possible with these components, - and of course if there are any hints to get this working ?
I have a WAP54g hardware version 1.0.I install de last firmware on this access-point but, this access-point reset automatic after a random time..It’s it possible to downgrade de firmware from this access-point?
I've got a AP WAP54G. I've managed to get into the configuration page and rename my router and set a WPA2-Personl password.
The issue I'm facing is that when me and my roomate try to connect to the router at the same time, it shows the laptop that connects second as one that has 'limited connectivity' and hence cannot use the internet. The 1st laptop however works fine! The settings for the router have all been left to default.
I'm not sure, but does this problem have anything to do with the fact that the router in configured with a static IP. If so, then there is another issure which is that whenever I try to change it from static to automatic/dynamic IP, the page fails and the router doesn't even get connected to the configuraion page(192.168.1.245) after that. The only way to get that page again is the reset the router.
Also I'm not able to directly get into the config page when I connect my router to my laptop via lan. I need to change the LAN IP to 192.168.1.x where x is >1.
I have a WAP54G and the signal strength and range is not that great; unit manufactured in 04/2007. I have firmware version 3.04 dated Oct 31, 2005. Customer support is suggesting I upgrade the firmware to 3.04.03 but I am sure it will really do anything to the signal strength and range. Also, they suggested I download new drivers for my desktop wireless card.
What I want to do is the opposite of most configurations. I live on a small island with only one DSL connection. The modem is wired connected to a WAP54G Access point. To extend this access point want to use a WRT54G.
I'm using a WRT120N and have had no problems connecting most wireless devices, but a Nintendo DS and DSi owned by my family are unable to connect to the access point. My wireless security mode is disabled, network mode is set to mixed, SSID is the same as on the DS/DSi, Channel width is 20Mhz only, Standard channel is set to 6, but I tried using channel 1 and 11 without success, SSID broadcast is enabled.
I've tried every work-about I could find and always get the 51300 error code, and am at a loss as to what else I can try to get the devices to connect to the access point.
I have 3 E3000 Routers and would quality input regarding using 1 of the E3000 Routers connected to my Broadband Modem (Roadrunner) and would like to know how to configure the remaining 2 E3000 Routers to be hardwired to my main Router as Access Points located approximate segmented 1/3rd areas throughout my house which really is only 1800 Sq.Ft. in area. How to be configure these routers as access points as well as configuring the main router that will be connected to my broadband router. This is my first network to utilize streaming video, Internet Television Programs, Internet Radio, Accessing the Internet in all rooms of my house and outside the immediate adjacent patio area.
I have 8mbs down/1 mbs up service through a cable modem (WOW). We've been using a WRT320N wireless router with great success. I haven't checked true transfer rates, but when I do a speed test (url...), I pretty consistently get the speeds we are paying for. There's a room I wanted to use as an office but the signal didn't reach there. I just set up a WRE54G range expander. It is talking to the router and my compter. I have internet access but the speeds are considerably slower (<1mbs down/<0.4 mbs up) than what I get on the other computer that's talking directly to the router. I've looked for specs on data rates on the WRE54G and can't find them, but I can't image they're that slow. Can this be because I'm using a G expander with an N router?
How would I bridge a wireless connection with a distance of 400 feet? Would twoAP1262N-A-K9 be able to make this happen? Or is there another wireless bridge that you all can think of?I would be connecting one AP1262 of off a 3750g switch and at the far end (400 ft aproximately) another AP1262N-A-K9.
I had a new AIR-AP1042N-N-K9 access point and I tried to convert it into lightweight mode with the image c1140-rcvk9w8-tar.124-21a.JA2.tar . I used all the methods but the AP is getting hanged at one position after decompressing the new IOS. The capture of the process is below: [code] After this I am getting the junk characters and everytime AP hangs at this position.
I have a WAP4410N access point. In the datasheet, it shows that the Antenna Gain in dBi as 2. I need to increase the range of the access point by replacing the antenna with a 7dB one. I would like to know the maximum dBi supported by this access point.
I am trying to find an effective way to extend the wireless signal across our home. I have tried various different solutions. Currently, I have an e4200 primary router that is cascaded with two additional e1500 routers that have been configured as access points. The Linksys support team hosted my computer and configured the devices. The e1500 routers are connected via ethernet wires running through the walls. And, this seems to be working well. Here's my question. The e1500 routers are configured with different SSID names, which Linksys advised was required to avoid conflicts in communications from the three router devices. Is there any way to configure this set up or something similar so that the entire wireless network has the same SSID and is seamless. In the current configuration, I have to specifically connect to the primary router or one of the two access points.
