Extending the wireless range of Netgear's WGR614 Router with WG602 Access Point ?
Posted on 2006-04-09
The obvious idea here is to extend the wireless coverage of the WGR614 Router. I've configured the WG602 access point for repeator mode (same ssid,same lan segment , applied router's broadcast MAC, etc.). When configured as such I can connect (laptop to AP) but there is no path to internet. All Netgear diagrams I've seen show a 'wired' connection Router to AP so am I missing the obvious here ??
Add'l info. State of AP's DHCP shows no difference...... When the laptop's wireless adapter associates with the Router's AP works fine. When it asscoiates with the AP no IP address acquired (ala. ipconfig/renew fails)
Thanks in advance,
