Hi people, wondering if someone can help me with a wifi matter.
I have a wifi access point which is connected by cable to my primary wifi/internet router. This works perfectly fine in 'Access Point" mode, and by having two separate SSID names and passwords I effectively have two different wifi networks running.
What I would like to do is have the two wifi components talk to each other wirelessly ("bridge"?), so that I can have the access point in a more remote location, which then would connect to another computer by cable.
I see that the access point has other modes such as - AP Client; Wireless Bridge; Multiple Bridge; and Repeat Mode, but none seem to work for me when I connect the access point to another computer.
Both AP Client and Repeat Modes allow for a scan of the 'Remote AP SSID' and pick up my wifi router with its correct SSID, channel, and password no problem. The primary wifi/internet router also sees the access point as an attached device.
For the trials I have MAC turned off on both units, but either nothing happens or access to the access point freezes.
Any comments, views, opinions would be most welcome.
