Here is my mostly wireless setup:
- Linksys X3000 is used as an ADSL modem and a wi-fi router (lets say it provides ssid NETWORK1). Configured as 192.168.1.1, DHCP-server enabled here.
- Two Linksys RE1000 range extenders are located in rooms neerby to increase the coverage of NETWORK1 network (wireless connection to X3000). Configured with static IP as 192.168.1.3 and 192.168.1.5 respectively.
- D-Link DIR-300 NRU/B7 is connectioned by wire to X3000, configured as an access point (DHCP-server disabled) with static IP of 192.168.1.2, providing wi-fi network NETWORK2.
- The last range extender (also Linksys RE1000) is used to increase coverage of NETWORK2. It's configured as 192.168.1.4
When I connect to NETWORK1 or NETWORK2 provided by X3000 and DIR-3000 (without extenders) and ping 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.5 - everything is ok.
But when I connect to NETWORK1 far from X3000 in an area of replicated signal by RE1000's 192.168.1.3 and 192.168.1.6 (I double-checked this case with inSSIDer app) I fail to ping 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.4.
Why it is so and how can it be fixed?
