Configuring an Access-Point as a Repeater

     

     

    Introduction

    How to Configuring an Access-Point as a Repeater

    Commands on Repeater

    We used the following commands on the Repeater

    First of all there should be a root device, to which the clients are already able to connect fine.

    We should know the name of the SSID that is being used on the Root Device

    On the repeater also, we should set the same authentication and encryption parameters that we have on the Root device.

    In addition to the above, we set the following commands on the root and the Root Device

    Topology

    Configuration

    AP# configure terminal
    AP(config)# interface dot11radio 0
    AP(config-if)# ssid ####
    AP(config-ssid)# infrastructure-ssid
    AP(config-ssid)# exit
    AP(config-if)# station-role repeater
    AP(config-if)# dot11 extensions aironet
    AP(config-if)# parent 1 ####.####.####.####(mac address of the root)
    AP(config-if)# end

    Commands on Root

    used the following commands on the Root

    AP# configure terminal
    AP(config)# interface dot11radio 0
    AP(config-if)# ssid ####
    AP(config-ssid)# exit
    AP(config-if)# station-role root
    AP(config-if)# dot11 extensions aironet
    AP(config-if)# end

    You can setup repeater via GUI also.
