Hi, On a similar model, the advertised range is anywhere from 50-100 meters outdoor or open air. Inside the house or within the office, the walls, doors, drapes, furnitures etc obstruct the signal and brings down the range to less than half. What we have tried to improve the signal range: 1. Install the AP/Router high up not just on top of a closet or cabinet but really high, about a foot from the ceiling; 2. Approximate the very center of the various locations of the laptops and install the AP/Router there; 3. Disabled and did not use security WEP, WPA but turn MAC Filter on; 4. Use an external hi-gain omni antenna; 5. Install a second similar unit at the farthest coverage and run it as a repeater; 6. Replace the AP/Router with the new N type (which again claimed to be 4X wider and 12X faster) which made us go back to step 1. It's a love/hate experience and we ended installing more repeaters. But it works. Hope this give you an idea or two (but hopefully not the frustration nor the headache). Post back how things worked out your end. Cheers

Router is not going to work as repeater it will work as an access point but you still have to run a cat 5 cable from your internet source to router.You are better of getting an actual repeater.

Cannot connect to 614 router

Hi Crockett1972!

Were you able to connect sucessfully w/o any wireless security? If No, then try this first but if Yes then try to verify your WEP keys. You might be mistyping it at the wireless desktop with the WB311.

Hope this helps!

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch

You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".

When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).

You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.
