MN-700 is frustrating!

Discussion in 'Broadband Hardware' started by Rory Mulligan, May 20, 2004.

  1. Alright, heres the setup: I have a linksys wireless
    router hooked up to my cable modem and I just bought an
    MN-700 to serve as an "access point." The problem is, I
    can't get the MN-700 to ask for DHCP settings over the
    wireless network, only over a cable. It claims it
    can "extend the range" of my existing wireless network,
    but how can it do that if it has to be plugged INTO my
    router?! Just wondering if anyone got this to work or if
    it is even possible. I can watch the DHCP clients table
    from the linksys and confirm my thoughts.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    There is a diagram of the set-up in the User's Manual.

    Yes, it's got to be hardwired to another wireless base
    station. It extends the range of your wireless network
    by allowing you to seperate two wireless base stations.

    No, it won't act as a "repeater" (what you're looking for)
    or a "game adapter". I've tried that. Sorry.

  5. Hey thanks a lot for the info. I basically returned my
    MN-700 and traded it in for a linksys access point. This
    *claims* to work just like i want it to.

    Thank you again!

    Let me know if you get the Linksys access point to work.
    I have been having so many problems trying to get mine to
    listen to my MN-500... I just purchased the MN-700 and
    am ready to bring it back since it will not act as a
    access point in the fashion which I need it to.
