why cant I add a second AP to a wireless network?
My neighbor, has very kindly said I can use his internet connection, trouble is the signals pretty weak and if I move anywhere other than my front room I loose it (the signal that is)
I thought I have an old wireless AP I can just give that AP the same SSID and security details and in the Gateway if I put my neighbors AP everything should be great. I set it up and it just doesn't work I can join the network and it joins using my AP but I cant get on the net. I have tried my phone and my laptop and I get the same results. I have double checked all my IP settings, DHCP is not enabled so my phone and laptop are on statics which iv set right.
If I turn my AP off my laptop works but my phone doesn't (but maybe i`m being impatient)
My AP does have a repeater section where I enter in the MAC address of a remote and one of a child but this doesn't seem to work
does anyone have any thoughts or pointers?
