I have an Edimax RW-7228apn wireless access point. It has LAN IP of 10.0.0.1. I have recently bought a TP-Link TL-WA830RE Wireless Range Extender to give me extra wireless coverage. I have plugged in the extender but it connects to the AP via wireless. I don't want to do that because the signal is weak. I have ethernet in both wireless locations so want to plug the Extender into ethernet, and give it IP address of 10.0.0.7 to extend the wireless network. Any ideas how to set that up?
In the Edimax it is configured as mode
AP. Other modes I can choose are:
- AP Bridge-Point to point
- AP Bridge-Point to Multipoint
- AP Bridge-WDS
- Universal Repeater
On the TP-Link it is configured as mode
Range Extender Mode 1. Other options are:
- Access Point
- Range Extender Mode 2
I did think about creating two separate SSIDs and having them both as an AP, but I'd rather just have one SSID for the wireless network. Any advice on what I should do?
