D-Link Range Extenders > DAP-1720

can I daisy chain D-Link Range Extenders

(1/2) > >>

wired1979:
At a location with limited cabling, I've had to set up WiFi signal extenders to cover the whole area.
Is it possible to daisy-chain range extenders?  Would look like this:

Internet - DIR-880L Router  <---->  DAP-1720 Extender 1  <--->  DAP-1720 Extender 2
                        |                                                                              |
                PC (ethernet)                                                             WiFi device

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
thanks

You can but not recommended. Using extenders will cut your bandwidth down. You will never get the same bandwidth as the router.

You can gain more if you use say 5.0 band from router to first extender, then 2.4 band from extender to extender.

You might try one of these configuration suggestions as well:
Internet - DIR-880L Router  <Power Line adapter> 110v <Power Line adapter>  DAP-1720 AP mode 1
                        |                                                                                                    |
                PC (ethernet)                                                                                  WiFi device

or

Internet - DIR-880L Router  <---->  LAN cable  <--->  DAP-1720 AP mode 1
                        |                                                                              |
                PC (ethernet)                                                             WiFi device

unfortunately, no power lines or ethernet cables can be used.  we are jumping from one building to building.  must be all wireless.

any special config to worry about?  static IPs or gateway considerations?
