linksys 54g router; dlink repeater; smc router -configure all for maximum range, connectivity, access
Posted on 2005-05-16
Hi - would be embarrassed to say how long I've been trying to get this to work. Once and for all if I could please get some direction,,,
Main router is linksys54g - connected to DSL modemWould like to configure dlink repeater to boost signal from linksys modem to laptop at other end of area that cannot reliabily receive signal.
Would like to have SMC router to provide boost....
What is the best way to go? Also, I understand that all access points should have their own ip. I get confused when
configuring the SMC while attached to a lan port of the link sys. Should it have an ip in the range of the linksys; an ip the same as the default gateway of the linksys; or it's own range. What should be the ip for the repeater...
Thank you all - have searched this site and found pieces of responses to similar situations as this, but nothing I can get my arms around. Help is sincerely appreciated. Based on the length of time I've spent trying to muddle through this, it's worth max points to finally get it resolved.....Thank you in advance!!!!!
