Region : Australia

Model : TL-WA901ND

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version : 120224

ISP :


I am at my wit's end. I've got to get Internet and file sharing connectivity between these offices sorted out.

I've got two offices and a signal stack. The offices aren't far apart. However, I cannot use LAN Ethernet cables; also, each area is using line-conditioned power and separate power meters. I can't use Powerline or cables.

Here's a diagramme of the scenario:


Does anyone know how to make this equipment share the network 10.7.0.0/24 between the three routers!?

I've also tried the seriously degraded 54MB "AP with Bridge" option and it also fails.

HELP!!!

hi k_r_h

Try this
Signal Room - AP1 - AP mode
Main Office - AP2 - repeater mode (repeat signal from AP1)
Side Office - AP3 - repeater mode (repeat signal from AP2)

From AP2, there must be a sufficient signal coming from AP1
From AP3, there must be a sufficient signal coming from AP2

if you will use a PC on AP2's target location, there must be at least 2 to 3 bars
of wifi signal coming from AP1. The same on AP3's target location.

I hope this works. Please do update us with your progress.

Good luck.
