Connect two router wiressly

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have Huawei EchoLife HG520 router. Now, I've got myself IPTV, so I had to move this router to the living room, and my computer is in the other room. Now, is there any router which can connect to this one via wireless connection? I would buy wi-fi card, but I'm sharing my connection with some other people who were connected with wire to Huawei EchoLife HG52. Can anyone suggest something? Thanks in advance.

Cheers ;)

Come on, guys. I need some help here. I tested with some WDS enabled router from TP-LINK, but this does not work since Huawei EchoLife HG520 does not support it. But, what about Client routers? This one from TP-LINK says it has AP Client Router Mode (WISP Client). Will this work? Can it connect to any access point or it can only connect to WISP(Wireless Internet Service Provider). Please guys, this is urgent.

Cheers ;)

Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato firmware on it will work fine as a wireless client. No need for WDS in this case (though the firmware does support it). Note that once you set it up as a wireless client, you won't be able to use it simultaneously as an access point.

That's to expensive for me. What do you think about TP-LINK I posted? Should it work the same as that Linksys? Thanks.

Cheers ;)

I'm not so sure it would. AP Client Router mode only works with WISP, and I don't think that applies in this situation. Wait until someone else chimes in to make sure of this though.

OK, thank you for the info. I just remembered that I have 4-port LAN router switch. Could I use access point, like this, set it in client mode and connect it with my LAN router switch?

Cheers ;)

That should work. If the store you buy it from allows it, buy it, test it out, and if it doesn't work out, return it.

I just got myself TP-LINK TL-WA701ND and I succefully connected it via client mode to my Huawei EchoLife HG52. Then I connected TL-WA701ND via LAN cable to switch I have (not router, I used wrong term in previous posts) and everything works fine as I wanted it to work.

Thanks again for help.

Cheers ;)
