I have a strange config, is it possible to match it with wl600g (custom or original firmware)?
I need to config my wl600g without an ADSL connection, using it as an extension of my wireless lan. See following chain:
Internet Router <-> eth <-> dd-wrt router <-> WiFi <-> Wl600g <-> eth <-> PC
dd-wrt is in AP/Bridge mixed mode and gives addresses (192.168.1.x with NAT). I would like to connect my wl600g to it as a client/bridge and route my lan to it.
Anyone already tried something like this? Any hints?
Thanks for any help you could provide.
yes i have , sort of, but it involved having routers that can do accesspoint client mode ( there is probably a fancier term) . I simple terms the wl600g has to lok like an ordinary netwrok card.
I have tenda adsl router ( wifi turned off ) giving me 192.168.1.* at its lan side this feeds webserver on hacked adm5120 , nas drive , and wan side of another tenda router. this second router gives 192.168.10.* on lan side with wifi. my pc's hang off this, including an edimax wirless router set to client mode conecting to the wifi. the edimax router wan side is ignored ( like the adsl would be in you wl600g) the wifi on it connect to the wifi in my 2nd tenda router ( this conection has been 3 different types of router in the past) the 4 lan ports on the edimax then become part of the 192.168.10.* segment . the 4 edimax lan ports act as if they are 4 more ports on the 2nd tenda. this was set up for an xbox360 down the other end of the house, I also had a URSsomething connected wirelessly the same way at the same time feeding my media player in another room. So the configuration is definately a valid one . the recieving wifi (2nd tenda ) has been a tompson528 ( i think . It is the one suplied by O2) and a dlink ap600 ( if i recall the number correctly) and these worked too. I f you have any issues it will almost definately be with the asus in client mode ( or what ever they call it if it has one that is) not all wireless routers will switch to this mode.
A lot of words an not much help
Well I turned on the wifi on my adsl tenda router and tried to build a bridge between it and the asus wl600g . They would not see each other . I dont know too much about bridge mode but I think I had all the settings right. Interestingly the asus bridge set up page is identicle to the tenda one word for word ! I dont think bridge is the same a access point client.
EDIT EDIT done it sort of
adsl router tenda w548d in wireless lan settings set ssid to tenda in wireless bridge page set AP mode to access point ( I believe this leave bridge mode on) . In the tenda it has a menu that says bridge: it should be bridge restrict like the asus , set this to enable (scan).
on the asus set the ssid to asus . set the wireless ap mode to Access Point and bridge restrict to Enable (scan)
now do a scan on both so that they find each other . tick the boxes and save.
JOB DONE.....but is it. This is with all encription turned OFF. I cant get it to work with wpa
