Guest Wireless / AP Repeater

Hello all...

I have 2 WAP4410N 's. Both are on the same SSID "Marker Guest", both have the same encryption and password, both are on the same channel. #1 is set up to be a normal AP, allowing repeating of its signal to the MAC of #2, which is set up as a repeater, with a site survey done to get the MAC of #1. The AP is in the downstairs conference room, and the repeater is in the upstairs conference room. When in the upstairs conference room, the signal strength is low to the original downstairs AP, so I added the repeater to the upstairs conference room.

AP #1 in the downstairs conference room is wired into a POE and into our DMZ, which gives DHCP on the range of 192.168.97.100 and up.

IP  Config #1:

192.168.100.150

255.255.255.0

102.168.100.1

IP  Config #2:

192.168.100.151

255.255.255.0

102.168.100.1

Now, with both powered on, I bring my laptop to the upstairs conference room, and connect to the SSID "Marker Guest" which the signal strength now is a full 5 bars. (good so far). I get DHCP from the DMZ like I should, and get an IP of 192.168.97.102 (still good) and can access the internet (still good). Now, when I double click the wireless signal on my XP task tray, it says 2 bars, signal strength low. (hmm) which got me thinking, maybe its not set up right.

So while still connected to "Marker Guest" I give myself a static IP of 192.168.100.200 and try to ping the AP and the repeater. I can ping 192.168.100.150, but not the repeater on 192.168.100.151, which leads me to believe its not set up correctly....

HELPP!!!!

Thanks!!

Hi Ryan,

And if you connect to the Root AP, can you ping the repeater from there?

I would say check again if the repeater has associated to the root AP by verifying on its web page.

good luck

Serge
