I have a new technicolor TG582n modem and the wifi signal doesn't reach to all the house. It's a big house, lots of concrete walls. I also have a Linksys WRT54G router and I'm wondering if it's possible to put the Linksys in the other area of the house and capture the signal from the Tompson. Then connect to that signal with my laptop. Maybe this will work to give me wifi in all areas.
If this is possible, can someone help walk me through it?
Hi... please help, i've been on this for hours and hours..
I've managed to get the new firmware on my modem and i'm in the process of setting it up but i'm stuck in one place... i'm following step by step but when i try to save changes I end up at a blank browser page. I'm able to go back and try again but no matter what, I can't get the settings to save.
I can't find DHCP to see if it's enabled
and for Wireless Network Mode : Must Match Primary Router I don't have the option to set it for "N" my primary router is N
These are the instructions;
To enable bridge mode between two routers, the primary router must be in AP mode (default) with DHCP Server enabled. The secondary router running DD-WRT v24 will be configured as the Repeater Bridge.
Restore Factory Defaults on Secondary (DD-WRT) Router
Do a proper HARD 30-30-30 Reset on the router.
Set your computer to a static IP of 192.168.1.9 if you know how to set static addresses. Otherwise leave your computer's network adaptor(s) programmed with the factory default setting of DHCP and the router will assign a valid address to your computer.
Connect your computer to the secondary router via wired LAN port or as a wireless client. The dd-wrt default wireless SSID is "dd-wrt"
Open the address http://192.168.1.1 in your web browser. Newer versions of DD-WRT will require you to set a password before you can continue.
Open the Wireless -> Basic Settings tab
