    Bridging two routers with repeating mode

    QUESTIONS: 1) In a repeater bridge scenario, is it possible, feasible, advisable, or necessary to have the host router provide the wireless backhaul through a virtual wireless interface (e.g. guest network) 2) In a repeater bridge scenario, is it possible, feasible, or advisable to have the...

    Resetting Guest Internet Access w/o affecting main WLAN?

    So I have some WiFi Smart Plugs that I've paired with the guest wifi. Smart Plugs (and IOT devices in general) aren't the most secure, and once I've set the timer function, etc. they don't need to be online to function, so I'd like to disable their online access when possible. I would like to...

    Attaching a repeater to a bridge to get around bandwidth limitation?

    Sorry I probably wasn't very cost in my initial post but my intention is indeed to hook up the N66u as an AP to broadcast at 5GHz. I understand it would be more load at 2.4GHz... But would this setup be any different than doing a dual-band bridge that others have mentioned?

    Attaching a repeater to a bridge to get around bandwidth limitation?

    As I understand, a wireless repeater will cut bandwidth in half (loosely speaking). Also, connecting a second AP to a router will not affect bandwidth, and neither does a wireless bridge. What happens if I hook up a second AP to a wireless bridge? This doesn't make any sense to me (because I...

    N56U Padavan Wireless Bridge won't update IP

    According to https://bitbucket.org/padavan/rt-n56u/wiki/EN/CommonTips#!what-are-the-existing-network-interfaces-transcript-naming-interfaces apclii0 (AP-client 2.4GHz) = 1E br0 (LAN + WLAN + AP-Client + WDS) = 1D eth2 (Ethernet interface GMAC1) = 1D I'm not aware of a merlin for N56U; I...

    N56U Padavan Wireless Bridge won't update IP

    Figured it out. For some reason, in the N56U's Wireless Info tab, the 2.4GHz radio MAC address us AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:1E (something like that). The main router sees the N56U identify itself using address, but setting a static IP to it is ineffective. BUT, in the N56U's Network Map tab, the MAC...

    N56U Padavan Wireless Bridge won't update IP

    So my architecture is that I have a AC1900 converted to AC68U, on Merlin as my main router upstairs. I also have a secondary router downstairs set up as a wireless bridge (AP-Client) without repeater function. It's only connected to my HTPC/file server. This way I can send a wake-on-lan packet...
