Here's the deal: just moved home and attempting to get t'internet in my room.
The setup: BT Broadband into a Homehub at one end of a long, stone walled house. One PC directly connected to ethernet on Homehub. Wireles on homehub setup and working fine.
My PC at other end of house, well out of homehub wireless range. Also out of cable range. I have an Edimax BR-6324NL Wireless Router from my old house and a wireless dongle in my PC.
Basically, what I'm attempting is to use the Edimax router as a wireless bridge, or a Universal repeater, placing it upstairs, within range of thje homehub and my pc. Or, to run cables from it to my pc, a much shorter run.
I'm can't get it to work however, and wonder if you good people had any advice, as I've never tried this before. I can set the Edimax into the following modes:
Station-Infrastructure (doc refers to this as: connects as client to wireless router, provides over ethernet) AP-Bridge WDS (for connecting WDS compatible routers together ionto a wider network) Universal Repeater (extends range of an exisiting network).
No matter how I try though I can't get it working. I don't know if this is because
a) it's not possible with the hardware config (Edimax router / Homehub) b) it's not possible with the security settings (WPA2 key on homehub) c) I've just not set it up right.
Have any of you tried this before, or made it work? Any suggestions?
My fallback is to order a couple of http://www.amazon.co.uk/Max-Value-200Mbps-Home-Double/dp/B001AIKBB4/ref=sr%5F1%5F8?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1257082303&sr=8-8 these (HomePlugs) and see if they work, but given the £60 tag I'd like to try and make it work with what I have!
Any help hugely appreciated, cheers guys!
