Wirelessly Use Second Router To Extend Home Signal Range

Jul 23, 2012

I have a BT home hub 2.0A (BT is our ISP) it covers most of our house except for my bedroom. I have two spare routers i'm not using, one is a Speedtouch ST585 v6 and the other is a Belkin F5D7632-4 and was wondering if I could use these to extend the range of the home hub wirelessly. As far as I can tell I cannot install dd-wrt on any of these 3.

Cisco Wireless :: Wirelessly Extend Range Of WRVS4400N?

Oct 31, 2009

I have a WRVS4400N v2 acting as a gateway connected to a cable modem and am interested in extending it's range by placing a WAP4410N elsewhere in the building to cover a deadspot.  Is there a mode on the WAP to best achieve this (e.g., wireless repeater, bridge, etc.)?  I had assumed that it would be the wireless client/repeater mode, but the thread below leads me to believe otherwise, but is not labeled as resolved.
As a different approach, could I extend the range of the original gateway WRVS4400N by dropping a second WRVS4400N in the deadspot and setting it to router mode?  Language in the WRVS4400N v2 administrator screens lead me to believe that I could try this but I am unclear as to whether it would work wirelessly or need to be connected to the gateway via an ethernet cable, which is what I am trying to avoid.

Belkin Routers :: NF5D8236 Signal Range Isn't Best Throughout Home

May 20, 2013

I have a Belkin NF5D8236-4 v3 as my main router. However, the signal range isn't the best throughout my home. After a little research and a tight budget, my thought is to purchase a Belkin N150 F9K1001 to serve as the primary router and then use the N F5D8236-4 v3 as an access point elsewhere in the house.I understand that the N150 cannot serve as an access point (hence the idea to use that as the primary), but that the N F5D8236-4 v3 can. Am I correct? Will my plan work? I can't spend much and a booster would cost more than the N150.

Extend Wifi Range Of Router Via Cat5 Cabling?

Aug 9, 2012

Our wireless router is in a room at one end of the house (beside the telephone point) from which ethernet cables can connect to the Cat5 sockets taking the broadband to the other rooms that have a Cat5 socket. That is fine for connecting devices to the sockets in the other rooms but because the house is old with thick walls our wifi signal fades to nothing in some parts of the house. Moving the wireless router only moves the problem to another area. I thought about a wifi repeater but the room I would like to locate it in to then boost the signal to the rest of the house is borderline on the range for the wireless router. Is it possible to connect another wireless router or device to the main wireless router through the Cat5 cabling so that the second router/device can offer wifi to that area of the house?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Is It Possible To Extend Range Of WRT54GX V

Aug 6, 2012

I am trying to use the Netgear WNR 2000 V3's repeater function to wirelessly extend the range of a Linksys WRT54GX V.2. I have the SSID's and channels the same. I had the Netgear working great as an extender with my Apple Airport Extreme base station (equipped with WDS). As far as I know, the Linksys is not equipped with WDS.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Add WRT54GL To 2 Wire To Extend Its Range?

Jul 26, 2011

Just purchased WRT54GL for family friend to extend the wireless range of their DSL via 2Wire ATT modem Wireless router. One desktop computer will stay wired to the 2Wire and laptop or 2 will connect to the WRT54GL since the 2Wire cannot reach into the yard (metal buiding). I've seen several examples of connecting two WRT54G together.  I Can I do that well with std Linksys software or would I be better off downloading Tomato or DD-WRT third party?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT610N Way To Repeat 5GHz Network To Extend Range

Linksys Wireless Router :: Connecting Two WRT54G2 To Extend Signal

Jan 27, 2013

I have available two Linksys Wireless-G Broadband routers (WRT54G2) which were given to me by a family member. We have been using one of the routers by itself for quite some time, but do not have adequate signal throughout our home. I decided it would be easier to design the floor plan of the house for you to see its location in relation to the rest of the house regarding walls and what not. We have HughesNet Satellite internet which is located on the roof just about the location of the modem and router in the bottom right of image.
What do you think would be the best location of the main router? I have read it would be best centrally located since the signal travels horizontally and vertically. I just purchased a 100' Ethernet cable since the only one we had was what the HughesNet installer provided us with which is about 4'. I was originally thinking I would route the cable from the main router to the basement where the second router would be placed since the signal down there is about 1 out of 3 bars on my iPhone. The signal upstairs in the main room (room in top middle of image) ranges from 3-5 out of 5 bars on my laptop.
I just wanted to place a post sooner rather than later to see what your opinions were on the location of the main router and what I have in order to increase the signal.

Oct 27, 2011

I have a couple of computers that are out of range of my router so I came up with a unique solution. I have an old laptop with 2 wireless cards that I put halfway between. It is working but I have a few oddities. First of all, the out of range computer is connected to another wireless router that several laptops and another (wired) PC connect to. It has ICS (Windows XP internet connect sharing) enabled. This rules out using ICS on the laptop as 2 pc's would have the address of

D-Link DIR-655 :: Can Use One To Extend Wireless Range

Jun 4, 2010

I get 10% signal in my bedroom using WEP2 and I would like to boost this to at least 50%

1) I have 2 DIR-655 Wireless N routers, both functional.
2) The first router is on the other side of the house from my room
3) The second router is not in use at all ... I'd like to take advantage of it
4) I have an Ethernet drop in my bedroom that runs under the house to the first router. I have a switch on that drop and use it for my Sony / Netflix box ...

I have been told that the DIR-655 cannot be used as a repeater. Can I not take advantage of the 2nd router to boost my signal in any way?

D-Link DIR-655 :: Connect Two Routers To Extend Wireless Range?

May 15, 2011

I have two Dir-655's - router1 and router2.

DHCP enabled range = to
Router 2:
DHCP disabled

Routers are connected to each other via LAN ports with a switch in between.Both routers have the same wireless SSID with the same password. I am able to connect wirelessly to both routers no problem.

I have a machine running a shared iTunes library which has a wired connection to router1. I also have an Apple TV wired to router2. My issue is if I am connected wirelessly to router2 I may or may not be able to connect to iTunes library. Conversely, if I am connected wirelessly to router1 I may or may not be able to play content from iTunes to Apple TV. I cannot figure out why everything works fine sometimes yet at other times I cannot connect devices between the two routers.

TL-WR740N How To Extend Wireless Signal

Jan 21, 2013

Ground floor: My ISP's wireless router and an 8-port switch. For wireless communication I use the ISP's Wifi and the 8-port switch is used for wired rj45 sockets around the house.

1st Floor: I have a TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless Lite N Router 150 MBps which I connected to a socket and have a PC connect with wire on it and also used for Wifi. The Wifi network I setup on the 1st floor is different than the one on the ground floor (2 routers).

At the first floor I have the problem that in other bedrooms far from the router the Wifi signal (either gets lost) or it's very low. So I bought a TP-LINK TL-WA701ND Wireless N Access Point 150MBps which I configured as universal repeater.

The access point supports only WEP encryption when used as repeater/universal repeater so I changed the wifi of the router to WEP with ASCII with 128bit character length and established the connection.The most important now is that even though the Wifi signal in the bedroom with the AP is full, when I switch off the wifi of the iPad and back on, it is not connecting to the internet. Yesterday I noticed that it was giving me the ethernet card IP (169.…). I went close to the router with the iPhone, got connected and when came back to the room with the AP it was working but the iPad is not working.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N No Longer Use And Would Like To Extend Wireless Range

Feb 22, 2011

I have a WRP400 connected to the internet, and have a WAG160N that I no longer use and would like to to extend my wireless range.I connected them via an Ethernet cable and it seems to work fine without configuring the WAG160N (seemed to just work automatically), but I can't access the WAG160N admin GUI (tried all sorts of IPs in the WRP400 range) to change any settings (frustrating). My guess is that it's probably not the best way to set it up.
1. Set the IP of the WAG160N (The WRP400 is set to, so should I change the WAG160N to Or should I be setting it within the WRP400's DHCP range which starts at

2. Swtich off the DHCP on the WAG160N. (I think I tried this late last night and it wouldn't assign an IP to my laptop, unless I did somehting wrong)

3. Connect the two using a ethernet cable.
After I do this I should still be able to access the WAG160N's admin GUI with the IP assigned in step 1?

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Boost Signal Range Of WRT310N

Aug 20, 2008

How to successfully increas the signal range of the WRT310n? I live in a huge old place and the signal drops to one bar (dial-up speed) about 40 feet across the building. However, at the room before that (maybe 30 feet) my Apple Mac book gets great signal and it's no problem. I need to connect the Mac and 2 PC laptops wirelessly.I'm not sure whether to try a signal booster, set up another access point (or how to do that anyway), or what? Running a cable is unfortunately not an option.I also have a WRT300n (which was replaced this weekend with the 310n). Not sure which one really is better, but the 300n router's range didn't even make it as far as the 310n does. (There was weak signal, no active bars.) Someone suggested adding a more powerful antenna to that router instead?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT310Ns - Extension Of Signal Range

Sep 25, 2011

I would just like to know if this will work. I have 2 Linksys wireless routers, 1 is located downstairs, connected to the cable modem and setup wireless, the other is on the second floor on the other side of the house. I need to extend the wireless range but also keep the 2 pcs upstairs connected through the Ethernet cable.
Router A Connected downstairs to modem DHCP enabled (Change scope to leave out the .2) WPA on wireless setup channel 11

Router B Give it a static ip of Connect cable from wall to any LAN port on router

Setup WPA using same SSID and PW different channel . Leave the 2 pc's connected as before.
The other 2 hardwired PCs should get an address from Router A and be able to connect to the internet?Does this make sense and should it work?
