wireless repeater using a 2Wire Home Portal
Posted on 2008-10-04
I just set up a WAP (Netgear WG102) to act as a repeater. There is wireless access to part of the area but two of the furthest rooms get very low quality signal and it will not sustain a connection when data starts to flow. So I've set up this WG 102 as a wireless repeater. The host Wi-Fi router is a 2Wire 1000HG Office Portal. I set the WG102 to receive its input signal from the 2Wire's MAC address and I set the security (WEP) with the correct access code. I can see the WAP throughout the area now but still cannot connect.
