WAP2000-E V01 Wireless Access point in Repeater mode

Hi, My name is Eric Moyers. I am a Network Support Engineer in the Cisco Small Business Support Center. Thank you for using the Cisco Community Post Forums.

There could be several factors preventing this from happening. Some routers will just not allow the signal to be repeated or as with some of our small business routers, you have to enable a check box to allow the signal to be repeated.

Unsure about this with your router. (what is it, make and model?)

WAP2000-E V01 Wireless Access point in Repeater mode

Hi Eric,

A quick question (hopefully with a quick answer) about WAP2000: I am planning to install two WAP2000's and set them up as repeaters. I have done this before and it works fine. The main difference from the setup before is that the two WAP2000's need to be powered via the Etherned (from an PoE-enabled switch). Once, they're powered that way, what would be difference in the addressing settings? The main WAP (unknown vendor) of wich the signal will be repeateed will be connected to the same switch.

Thanks.
