Question about D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless Router

1 Answer

How do I set up a router to extend the range of a wireless hub?

I use a BT Home Hub and I am looking to extend the range by using a D Link DSL g604t router. Using just the hub, signal strength is low min my son's room (there is a metal wall support). I can connect the hub and the router using an ethernet cable, but I am not sure how to set up the connections on the router. Do I set it to "bridge"?

    Thanks. The hub now sees the other router as an access point, but the router does not communicate with the hub. How do I set the router to communicate with the hub?

    I used this router successfully when I was with Orange, I sited it in the loft of my bungalow as the Orange router could not provide a wireless signal in all rooms (thick walls). I have recently moved to BT but cannot get the TP-Link to connect to the Internet. I am NOT technical but have set up router using CD supplied (after resetting box)- HELP (layman's talk please)

You would normally set it up as an access point. But bridge would work too.

Associate wireless router to my home hub


If your Home Hub is a BT type internet hub, then you can connect the WAN port to the Ethernet port on the Hub.

This means it will go through two routers. One in the Hub and another in the Edimax. The Edimax needs to be configured as a bridge, because you need to keep within the same address range as the BT router. The Edimax DHCP allocation of IP addresses need to be disabled. This is not on the web site.

I have just installed a BT N mode Hub, and my Belkin Wireless G Universal Range Extender is now not working. Help please!


make sure wireless channel number should be the same on BT hub and on belkin. BT hub is normally on Auto channel change it to a channel number usually 1 and 11 are the best for coverage and then chose the same channel number in belkin.

Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs


look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).
