Linksys WRT54G v1.1 drops WAN IP!

OK, I have my Linksys WRT54G v1.1 router set to repeater mode. I have added a Virtual AP and everything works fine. It gets an IP form from the router across the street. But the instead I enable MAC Cloning it drops the WAN IP. What is wrong with it? Help!!!

    What? Nobody has a
    solution?

  • sxxxs Jan 10, 2009

    Ok, let’s see here...


     


    I am running:


     


    DD-WRT v24 svn build
    11296



    VINT std nokaid
    nohotspot nostor



     


    No, I don’t have
    access to the router across the street nor do I need to. It’s just some dumb
    neighbor that has an open AP, so I’m using it to test my Linksys on his router.



     


    I found a temp fix, if I
    switch to Repeater Bridge, save and then switch back to Repeater, it will work.
    But once I reboot the router I’ll have to redo the same trick again.



     


    I guess I have to get my
    JTAG cable out. Create a new CFE file for the WRT54G with the fake MAC in it
    and then flash it back. But then I’m stuck with the fake MAC until I flash back
    my original CFE. :-(

    Oh yeah, there is
    nothing new when you enable MAC Cloning, besides hiding or faking your device identity.

  • sxxxs Jan 10, 2009

    It’s working but not
    with MAC Cloning enabled.



     


    You’re welcome. It’s not
    my problem that you can't read. Complain to your teacher or your parents, I don’t
    know, nor do I give a **** about rating like you do.



     


    Are you happy now?

OK - let's get on with that..and let's see what I can do...

Are you using standard Linksys firmware? To my knowledge, only third party frimware like DD-WRT and Tomato are capable of that. If so, have a look

  1. here for DD-WRT (and look at the "WLAN Repeater" link)
  2. or here for Tomato, (look for "Setting Up WDS Repeating") and see if you get any further.

Why do you need MAC cloning? (I'm just interested - maybe I can learn something too!)

Do you have access to the router "across the street"?

Good luck!

    Hey man, "thanks" for the "inappropriate" rating...;-(

    But see what I found here:

    We are currently experiencing Client Bridge and Repeater Bridge
    problems when the host is a non-Linux based router. If you are
    experiencing problem or would like to report a non-linux router as a
    problem please post in this thread.
    We are trying to keep this list up to date. Client Bridge is said to be
    working with the old V23 SP2 build...but not the newest V24 builds.


    Maybe that gets you a little further!

Linksis router wont work help me out


First of all contact your isp and get your connection settings. If you are able to setup the router using the cd provided then good. If you are still having problems then go ahead and contact linksys (remember linksys charges for the support). I suggest get a technician to assist you in setting up.

Dont have internet connection on my laptop


First change your LAN ip range on WRT54g, leave the wan interface as dynamic IP client. Connect your WAN port to the DSL router interface. ping your DSL router interface (most probably your DSL router will be having 192.168.1.1). Make sure that your laptop is not assigned with any static IP (Incase you use the laptop in home n work).

WAP54G's as repeaters


Are you trying to setup both access point to repeat the signal of the router?
The correct way to setup the AP's as repeater is to access the setup page of your router go to status and go to the wireless subtab, check what is the MAC address that is what your suppose to configure on the AP's not the LAN MAC address which is on the local networks subtab on status.
Access the setup page of the AP's and go to AP Mode, make sure that you choose the repeater and copy down the Wireless MAC address you obtained from the wireless router. To enable roaming, meaning your wireless computer/device will connect to the AP/router closest to its location, change the wireless channel on all three device for example WRT54G will be on channel 1, 1st AP as repeater on Channel 6 and the last AP to Channel 11 but the other settings must be the same(Wireless name(SSID) and Wireless Security).

Note: Setting up an AP as repeater to repeat or extend the signal of another AP that is set to repeater is not recommended since the signal will deteriorate due to the number of hops the packets will be sent.

Hope this will help you setting up those WAP's which for me is quite useful since you can set it up to act as a repeater, AP client and a bridge to a WRT54G router.

Setting up a WAP54G as a wireless repeater with a WRT54G


Requirements for WAP54G & WRT54G Repeater Mode function: * WRT54G: Firmware 2.02.2 or higher * WAP54G: Firmware 2.06 or higher Go to http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest firmware upgrades for both devices. . Accessing the Router?s Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). 1. Type the IP Address of the Router into the Address Bar (192.168.1.1 is the default IP Address). 2. Click GO or press the [Enter] key. The User Name and Password prompt will appear. 1. Leave the User Name field blank. 2. Type admin in for the Password (the default Password). 3. Click OK or press the Enter key. The Router?s Setup page will open: * Click on the Status Tab. * Click on the Wireless sub tab. Write down the Wireless MAC Address and the Channel number values located on this page. If the Encryption Function is Disabled, go to the WAP54G Repeater Setup section below. If Encryption Function is Enabled: Note: WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is not yet compatible with wireless repeater mode. You must use WEP Encryption if you wish to use security options with this configuration. To gather WEP encryption information, click on the upper Wireless tab, then the Wireless Security sub tab. Write down the Passphrase. WAP54G Repeater Setup Be sure that you have the WAP54G plugged directly into one of the WRT54G?s numbered ports for the duration of the setup. Accessing the WAP54G?s Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). 1. Type the IP Address of the WAP54G into the Address Bar (192.168.1.245 is the default IP address). 2. Click GO or press the Enter key. 3. The User Name and Password prompt will appear. 4. Leave the User Name blank. 5. Type in admin for the Password (the default password). 6. Click OK or press the [Enter] key. The WAP54G?s Setup page will open. 1. Set the Channel value to the same channel as the WRT54G router that was obtained from earlier steps. 2. If WEP encryption was enabled on the WRT54G: * Select Enable for the Wireless Security option. * Click on the Edit Security Settings button and enter the same Passphrase as the one of the WRT54G router that you recorded. Click Generate to populate the WEP key fields. * Click Save Settings to save your changes and close the encryption window. Click Save Settings to save your changes on the Setup page. 3. Next, click on the AP Mode tab. * Select the Wireless Repeater option. * Enter the WIRELESS Mac Address from the WRT54G that you recorded. (Disregard the fact that the page asks to ?Enter the LAN MAC ADDRESS?). Click Save Settings to save your changes. Close your web browser. You can now place the WAP54G Access Point in another nearby location (with its power adapter plugged in) so that it can repeat the wireless signal that it receives from the WRT54G. Notes: * The ?SSID? of the WAP54G does not have to be the same as the WRT54G. This can be used for initial configuration; using a different SSID will enable testing of network connectivity, and will show that the WRT54G is associated with the WAP54G. * If MAC Filtering is configured on the WRT54G, no extra configuration is needed. Wireless clients will still need to be added the MAC Filter list of the WRT54G, but the WAP54G does not have to on the list.
