Configuring DLINK 900AP+ Access Point in Repeater Mode
Posted on 2004-11-16
I have 2 DLINK 900 AP+ Access Points. One is connected to a switch. I want to use the other to repeat the signal. I see how to select Repeat Mode and enter the MAC address of the access point I want to repeat. However, which MAC address do I enter, the Ethernet (LAN) address of the 900AP+ or its Wireless MAC address.
The documentation says the Ethernet (LAN) MAC address. However, when I called Dlink on a related issue they said to enter the Wireless MAC address .... I tried both and I don't see any improvement on my connection either way.
So, please advise which MAC address should be entered into the repeater device.
How can I tell that the repeater is working properly, since my understanding is that the repeater is transparent and when I look at my connection, it looks like I am connected to the original access point.
