Trendnet 432 Extended Range MOde

I have 2 of the Trendnet 432. I want to extend the network downstairs without wires (bridging). I used to bridge my to belkings but one failed after a storm. So, I so that the trendnets 432 have an option EXTENDED RANGE MODE. It looks that it would be able to bridge.

Can that be done. I went thru all documentation, 1 million searches on the web and can not find how to configure it.

    I just read the manual, and there isn't an option to set the router up as an Access Point or repeater.

lan wires are the same. lan wires used to connect your computer to your modem can also be used to connect your Wa1003A adsl router and TEW 432 brp.

you just got some things mixed up.

1. you should set your Wa1003A adsl router to bridge mode. At this point, it will just be "pass through" device and will not be the one who will ask for IP adds from your ISP.

2. configure your TEW 432 brp with your pppoe username and password. Your TEW 432 brp will now ask the network for the IP address to that it can connect to your ISP.

3. leave your lan wires the same.

I had this same problem. I was going to go ahead and call ATT and ask them to put my modem into bridge mode, but I messed around a bit more....

I went ahead and turn on PPPoE...tried to run the set up again. Well it worked. Not the internet connection is working through the modem. For some reason, the setup changed PPPoE back to DHCP Client, but it's working now. Give this a shot before calling ATT if you like. Good luck.

I have a 2wire and a wireless router Belkin34e. I cannot get the preception I need to watch my movienite streaming media player. I have a tv upstairs and downstairs and the preception is poor for bothl.


The best is to use an Ethernet cable.But if you cant wire up you will need that one of your device be downstairs.In order to do it you need to configure one of them as an access point bridging one router to the other.Or get a Wireless Extender that is a hardware devices that act as either bridges, allowing you to connect a wired device to a Wi-Fi network without need for additional cabling or networking configuring, or they act as repeaters, extending a wireless signal beyond the normal bounds of range.

How do i set bridge mode?


Depends if you need a wireless or wired bridge?

Here is some info for you.

Infrastructure Mode

With a wireless Access Point, you can operate the wireless LAN in the infrastructure mode. This
mode provides wireless connectivity to multiple wireless network devices within a fixed range or
area of coverage, interacting with wireless nodes via an antenna.

In the infrastructure mode, the wireless access point converts airwave data into wired Ethernet
data, acting as a bridge between the wired LAN and wireless clients. Connecting multiple Access
Points via a wired Ethernet backbone can further extend the wireless network coverage. As a
mobile computing device moves out of the range of one access point, it moves into the range of
another. As a result, wireless clients can freely roam from one Access Point domain to another and
still maintain seamless network connection.

You can Convert the Router as an Access Point But your Wireless Modem Should Be Hard wired to router. But if your Router has an wireless Bridge Option in it you can Convert it as an Range Extender. Check For the Wireless Bridging Feature on your Router or Please Post your Router's Model Number Here. I Will Be Glad to Help you out... :)

Hello, I currently use a Belkin F5D8631 as my Modem Router. I have a spare Belkin F5D7633. Can I use the 7633 as a repeater/bridge to extend my wireless range? If so, how?! Thank you


It will not extend your wireless range. If you connect your spare Belkin F5D7633 to your Belkin F5D8631, one of them would have to be set to "bridge mode" or a pass through modem so that there will be no conflicts as to which modem will receive the ip address from the network. If you set your modem/router to bridge mode, it would disable its wireless function because it will only be a pass-through device.

If you want some tips on how to improve your wireless range, check out this site http://www.microsoft.com/athome/moredone/wirelesstips.mspx. Hope this helps.

I have a 2wire Gateway modem/router. I would like to extend the range by 75 feet to reach an outbuilding i use for an office. What can I do?


A couple of ideas come to mind, but basically 75 extra feet could be a problem. It's unlikely that you will be able to extend the range of your present router, but that's the first place to look. The antenna may have a mini-connector on it that unscrews. You can add a 5 or 9 dB antenna to the base unit and push the signal farther.

The problem you face is you might be able to see the signal, but you still can't talk back to it. There are instructions floating around the internet to convert a wireless router to a wireless bridge. A bigger antenna at the Gateway and a router wired as a bridge would get you all the signal as a point-to-point system.

Of course, an industry standard wireless access point, will have a bridge mode. Again, it might be enough to just get one of those and it will be able to communicate with your existing equipment without adding the high gain antenna.

A typical WAP with antenna is in the neighborhood of $90.

ZyXel P660HW-T1 ... Problem bridging 2 wirless adsl routers


What do you mean by "wireless bridging"? Does it mean wirelessly connecting both routers? (ex. Zyxel is at location A and Micronet ais at Location B and you'll wirelessly connect them). If this is what you mean, then it might not be possible since those are two different brands and possibility is that they will not work with each other when they're wirelessly connected unless one or both routers have the capability to do so.

Wireless Bridge


do this to change from routing mode to bridging mode, which allows your MN-500 to act as a wireless access point. Important: If you follow the procedures I've listed below instead of the procedures documented in the MN-500 User Guide, you will not lose the ability to administer the MN-500. This will give you the ability to change the SSID, channel, and encryption key if needed without performing a factory reset of the base station and starting from scratch. 1. While logged into the BSMT, click the Local Area Network link and access the Settings page. 2. Change the IP address from the default (192.168.2.1) to another IP in the same range and set the DHCP server to disabled using the list. Click Apply. In the example shown above, I've changed the IP to 192.168.2.252. Wait for all lights to turn green on the base station. 3. Open the BSMT again using the new IP. Use your Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.2.252 and enter your password if prompted. You will not be able to open the BSMT from the Microsoft Broadband Networking Utility (BNU). 4. Click Security, and then click Network Mode. 5. Click Bridging mode, and then click Apply. 6. Disconnect your computer from the MN-500 but do not disconnect the power from the MN-500 because it may take several minutes for the hardware to restart in access point (bridging) mode.
