Use old router as an acces point
« on: May 28, 2011, 12:40:13 AM »


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'll need to refer to your Sitecom mfr to see if it supports being an AP and can extend wireless ranges by being an extender or relay.
