Connect WIFI-ROUTER and wired lan using wifi using WHR-G300N
« on: December 11, 2008, 07:50:50 am »
   

Hello

I have a THOMSON 739 router with Wifi that provides internet access.

I would like to connect a wired lan that has no internet access using a WHR-G300N over WIFI.

Wired connection between the THOMSON router and the WHRis not an option.

Is this possible?

I could not find a way to do it in the WHR configuration.

Would I be able to access the "bridged" network using a wifi laptop,using theWHR or do I need an additional device/router?

The wired network has several shares and multimedia devices that I would like to access using all of my PC's.

The THOMSONjust provides internet access and I have nothing connected to it.

Regards


Paul

The WHR can only communacate with another router via wireless if it supports WDS.  Does the THOMSON 739  support WDS?

Hello

Yes the unit supports WDS.

Below is the complete specification TG787 not TG739 - my mistake)

Exactly what do I need to do on the WHR?

I also have a small wifi router in the wired lan to obtain DHCP and wifi access to it.

Should I keep it after connecting the WHR?

Hello

The link provides information that do not match the web page configuration of the WHR.

I can see the WHR on the other AP using WDS but I'm missing instructions to finalize the setup of the WHR.

   I thought the WHR-G300N doesn't support WDS? Buffalo really should update the firmware and allow WDS support.

My apologies I gave you all the set ups for whr hp g54, the g300N does not support WDS.  WDS does not work with any N draft router at the moment.
