Need help extending range of WLAN

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Herbert Grünzig, Aug 24, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I'm having problems in connecting a DSL Router (DI-624) and an Access Point
    (DWL-AP700). With my notebook I can see the signal of the Router and
    sometimes I can even connect to the internet. Now I'd like to use my AP in
    Repeater mode, so that the weak signal becomes a strong one, or use it in
    Wireless Client mode, as I expect that the AP can capture the weak signal
    much better.

    Unfortunately, the Repeater mode does not work, even though I specified the
    MAC adress correctly. What could cause this problem?

    The Wireless Client mode does not work either. In the log file of the
    Router, the AP is not even recognized, whereas the notebook is registered
    and handed out an IP adress.

    Thanks for any hints!

    You'll probably need a better antenna.
    Turn off all security in the router while troubleshooting. When you get
    it working, turn on WPA with a strong passphrase.
