I am having a very difficult time setting up WDS with 2 Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 routers. I followed the detailed instructions at: http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/tutorials/article.php/3628576
Sometimes I get this:
1: It takes 2 minutes for router 2 to establish a connection to the internet. It seems like it should be more like 5 seconds. By that I mean it takes a full 2 minutes before any page can be displayed it get the “can’t display web page thing”. After that its runs at 1/2 the internet bandwidth of router 1 as expected.
2: No matter what I do I can no longer connect to router 2 (10.10.19.254). I can ping it but can’t get to the page. This happened after setting up wds.
Other times I get this:
The connection is intermittent and connecting to router 2 is a joke. The password prompt comes up but says it’s a Linksys RVS4000. No such router on the lan. I am connected to router 2 via Ethernet. Last night (after some time) it came up and I had a good internet connection via router 2. This morning its dead.
Router 1 is working fine and it only one room away.
I can ping both routers but not the dns server
Router1 = 10.10.19.1
Router2 = 10.10.19.254
DNS in router 1 = 10.10.19.1
Dns inside router 1 = 18.104.22.168-127
