Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
I have a linksys wrt160n router, and I'd like to add my belkin f5d7230-4 router on as a wireless AP, basically to extend the range of the current network. I have tried configuring the belkin as an access point through the web utility and have assigned it an IP there at the top end of the range assigned by the linksys DHCP server. Currently, the linksys router can see it when it's connected via ethernet cable but not when it's disconnected. Any suggestions for configuring either router?
Based upon what I've read regarding and experience with the F5D7230-4 is it will only work with another F5D7230-4 or F5D7231-4, F5D7130, F5D7132 and this are all Belkin products as well I thiink it has something to do with the WDS compliance for this specific model that's why they have clearly specified on the User Guide which devices are guaranteed to work with an F5D7230-4 that is set to AP Mode(Bridge/Repeater).
If you really want to exend the wireless coverage of your Linksys router I suggest you try the Wireless G Range expander(WRE54G v2.0/3.0 version 1.0 I do not recommend since it's somewhat challenging to configure since it has no ethernet port all the setup will be done wirelessly)
