Creating W-LAN with multiple access points

Hello There,

We have a couple of Wireless Access Points using which we are able to create two seperate WLANs. I ahve seen in many places where there will be only a single WLAN and multiple Access Points will be there to extend the range. Could anybody help me how to do that from scratch. The Access Points we have is one D-Link and one LinkSys

Hi,

Check out if your AP's support bridging mode. If so then you can connect multiple AP's to create WLAN.

The easiest way, in my opinion would be to put one of the APs in a repeater mode. This basically allows you to increase the range of your wireless network while using a single WiFi Network.

For information on how to do this using a linksys / dlink routers, google the same. A sample query is : http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=using+linksys+router+as+repeater&meta=&aq=1&oq=Using+Linksys+

You may have to specify the models to get more accurate results.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
Sarang
