Need advice with a Netgear RangeMax 240 router and a Belkin Wireless G router/access point
Posted on 2006-06-10
I have a RangeMax 240 router and a Sony laptop in another room about 70 ft away that is getting terrible performance (1MB).
I have been trying to configure a spare Belkin Wireless G router (F5D7230-4) as an access point, but it doesn't seem to be working.
The Netgear router has been set to "G" mode to be compatible with the Belkin router/access point. The Belkin router/AP is set to access point mode, channel 11 (same as the Netgear router), same SSID, same WEP key. I can "see" the Belkin router/AP via it's IP address, but as I say, it doesn't seem to be doing anything to help the laptop's performance.
I need some advice. Will this ever work? Should I get a Netgear Pre-N Access Point? Should I get a Netgear Pre-N network card for the laptop?
