SOURCE: access points


Am using for the past 5 months a LinkSys WRT300N as master with 2 WRT54G as slaves (repeaters). Both the 54Gs are using 1 of the original antenna + a rooftop mounted directonal antenna. 1 of the 54Gs is installed at a computer shop inside a school campus, the master 300N is at an office (outside the campus, a block away) and the other 54G is installed at a student dorm (3 blocks away from the office).

One favorable aspect of the 54G is that it will accept a firmware replacement; Alchemy and Talisman bySveasoft and DD-WRT by Brain Slayer, ipv6 by EarthLink, and another by Sputnik. I found the first 2 with the most features,  ease of installation and configure.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: cannot connect to access point

Are you using the Linksys utility to connect to the wireless network?
If you are using that then you can switch over to windows utility.
It is very simple to connect to the wireless network.

I am looking at installing a total of 9 AP's at a location. Because of this I wanted to find a solution to manage or controll the AP centrally. I was looking at the Netgear WNDAP350 AP and the WMS5316...

No- the WMS5316 is not a full wireless controller and will not provide seamless roaming. To use the WNDAP350 with seamless roaming, you need to use the Netgear WC7520, which is a full controller.

Problem transistioning between mulitple Cisco Access points

Hi bab77, With a laptop, when walking around, you don't notice any problem because when a data packet is lost the network send you another one and the user don't feel it. With voice it is more sensitive because, if you loose a voice packet the user notice it right away (the call drops or you here a click or something). When walking around with your phone, your network must be "smart" enough to understand it and "pass" the call to next AP. I use the Meru Networks solution system. In this case there is a box call controller in the network that is responsible for "passing" the call to the next AP without the user even noticing a drop in the call. Hope this help (and sorry for my English) RPL4

What is WDS?

Wireless Distribution System (WDS) allows you to make a completely wireless infrastructure. Normally, the access points must be connected with a wire (LAN). These access points create cells allowing a wireless connection. The WDS feature allows the access points to be wirelessly connected. This feature is normally used in large, open areas where pulling a wire is restricted or not cost effective and in residential circumstances. If the structure utilizing an access point is too large to cover using one AP, a second AP would be used as a wireless repeater. The WDS has forwarding functionality for extending the range of an AP. By setting up an extended service set (ESS) between access points. Stations can intersect with any AP of this ESS and move between the coverage of both APs while the higher layer network connection remains intact.
