Title: Use old router as an acces point
Post by: jw50 on May 28, 2011, 12:41:23 AM
Hello,

I'm Dutch, my English can be wrong from time to time...

I have a D-Link DIR-655 with an usb dongle DWA-140. I used to work with a Sitecom WL-341 router.
I want to use the Sitecom WL-341 as an acces point to improve my wireless range at the top floors of my house.

What I want to create:
- The modem connects to the D-Link router;
- The D-Link router makes a wireless connection with the Sitecom router;
- The Sitecom router is now an acces point;
- I connect the Sitecom router with a cable or wireless to my desktop PC.

I don't want a cable in my house that connects the D-Link with the Sitecom. If I do this, not only will people get hurt getting up the stairs because of the cable lying there, it also isn't a pretty sight...

Can someone please help me with my problem?

You can't connect both routers via wireless ...
