URGENT :What about Splitter and rebound?

Hi everybody,

My question is about a passive rebound.

I want to make BR1 communicate with BR3 with a passive rebound on the BR2 site:

BR1-------BR2------BR3

If i put a splitter on BR2 with 2 Yagi antenna, and if the ethernet port of BR2 isn't connected, are computers on BR1 lan able to connect to computer on BR3 lan ????

The same question with no splitter on BR2 but with an omniDirectionnal antenna ?

Thanks for your Help!

Re: URGENT :What about Splitter and rebound?

The omni would be the way to go.

There may two antenna connections on the device, but they are usually used for "diversity;" meaning that only one antenna is live at a time. If you tried two yagis, one antenna or the other would be unused at any given time .... netowrk performance (which is already a little slow because of the repeater - 50%) would suffer even more.

Shut down one antenna connection and put in an omni (there are several omnis with some gain) and use directional antennas at the endpoints to aim at the central repeater site.

Good Luck

Scott
