Hi Guys,

I have home wireless running on DG834GT channel 1 WAP. Everything is working well inside the house, called building #1

I need to extend the range to building #2 (20 meters away and straight across) so I connected a WAG 102 to one of the Ethernet ports of DG834GT believing this will solve my problem, as have I read very good review about this AP.

From building #2 I can see all networks (1x DG834GT and 2x WAG 102) but the signal quality is very poor and I failed connect.

I had a go with wireless channel sittings on WAG 102 changing from all channels and rebooting it hopping this will improve the range without much luck.

I have both DG834GT and WAG 102 seating next to each other on the window seal, is this problem?

Could you please help?

Thanks a lot.
