    why can't the virtual network have the same SSID as the physical network?
  • ob882
    how do you even get to this point?

    Do *not* attempt this with a Netgear WNR3500L v2. If it doesn't brick it straight away, it will render your network useless until you unplug it. Several other people have had this issue as well. There is some kind of flaw in the router hardware.

    Not working for me. I'm able to see my second router SSID, but when try to connect to it, it says "Unable to connect to {SSID}". Win7 troubleshooting is no help.
    One time, I was able to connect to it, but got no Internet access.

    Should the "internet" LED be illuminated on the router when it's set up properly?

    Very good video! Thank you for the clear instructions and good quality video. Very easy to follow. :)

    Hey Ranjit
    Does this repeater setup require the primary modem-router also to have the dd-wrt firmware?
  • Fubar Snafu
    Great stuff, love DD-WRT. It's kick ass that open source saves the day once again!
    Tomato is a good open source alternative firmware also. Most of the questions I see here in the post can be answered at  http://www.dd-wrt.com there is also a good blog... Thanks for the video

    Hello, in my Wireless Mode drop down list the repeater option does not appear. I have hust AP, Client, Client Bridge (routed), Adhoc etc. But no repeater option at all. Can anyone help?
  • Ronny
    This isn't working if you have the Atheros version of the WR1043ND. Just install of latest firmware into the device and set it to 'client' and you should be fine.
  • Fernando Rilloz
    At 0:58 I'm already lost! can someone explain to me from there??
  • Neel Patel
    can you put the repeater on the same network as your old network. For example, lets say your router is Can you put your repeater as as far it is out your dhcp range.

    Hi, Can I configure it using only wi-fi connection?

    Even I follow the steps, dont have internet connection on my 2nd Router..
  • Subrat Red
    SIR 1 more help
    Sir I am over whelmed to inform you that I bought the what suggested by you, guess what its the "TP-link 1043ND". Now i have gone almost through all options its version 1.11. It has WDS option but I want to use it as a repeater without installing dd-wrt. As I have alredy told you my primary router is Belkin N150(no bridge option or repeater) and then through it the 1043ND will be repeater. Please suggest the steps if possible..

    I want to dd-wrt when I am sure completely
  • James Hennessy
    quick question, how do you make it so they're on the same network, so items connected through the repeater can access network shares on the primary router

    I wanted to add 2 repeaters for my primary wireless router..will this work
  • Kyle Menigoz
    This is not a true wireless repeater, this is just a secondary network on top. A true repeater assigns DHCP from the primary router.

    Hi ranjit.  I had a question.  I was trying to go into the wwdrt settings with the ip address i had created.  I forgot the password.  This might have been a mistake and i might have fried the router, but i press the reset button on the back of the router which is the dlink 615.  Now i cannot log into the router anymore using the ip address i created.  Is there anything i can try to fix this?  thanks!

    I am totally confused. And I have flashed three routers with DD-WRT and set them up as repeaters. After watching this video I have no idea how in the world I managed to do it because whatever I just watched made me so confused I don't know what to even try next.

    Thanks for the help. The only problem i have is that when i set it up i didnt change the ip. And it works right now without. Is it neccesary to change it each time i change it the network crashes and does not connect to the host router?

  • jj
    do you place the ethernet cable in the WAN or just LAN?
  • reesen85
    What is the setup for the main router, when selecting a function, for example AP, Client, etc. Do you have a video of setting a router up on a wireless network.
