WNDR3700 and WNHDE111 Issues with BRIDGE Mode
Posted on 2012-03-24
So, I have a WNDR3700 as my Wireless Router at home. All is well and good. I have a 2.4GHz b/g/n network, and a 5GHz a/n network, as well as a guest network.
My issue is I have configured my WNHDE111 as a wireless bridge so my wife's Mac upstairs can plug into it.
When a computer is connected to the WNHDE111 it causes my Internet speeds to beyond slow to a crawl. Think Google timing out....
My 5GHz network is set up with WPA2-PSK [AES]
I know the security settings are working, because I can ping and see other machines on the network that are plugged into my WNDR3700 from the device plugged into my WNHDE111. It's almost like when something physically connects to the WNHDE111 it floods the whole network with traffic or something, efectivly bringing it to a standstill.
The info from my WNHDE111 is as follows-
Address Type : Static IP.
IP Address : 192.168.1.146
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1
Wireless Radio :Enabled.
Status :Associated with SSID: NCC-1701
WISH : Inactive
Network Name (SSID) :NCC-1701
Wi-Fi Protected Setup :Configured.
Security Mode :WPA2 Only - Personal
Now, I don't know why is says WPS is Configured. I didn't use WPS for setting this up, as I haven't used it in the past for setting any other devices up. And when I tried, both devices just timed out anyway.
I am seeing an incorrect security error on my WNDR3700 logs-
[WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:38, Saturday, March 24,2012 12:19:47
That MAC is my WNHDE111, but the security is allowing it to connect, just very very very slowly.
I'll gladly get more info if it's needed. I assume some setting is wrong on the router, and it's causing the Bridge to have issues.
