Connecting Two WZR2-G300N Router Together?
« on: December 22, 2008, 03:18:12 pm »
   

I already use one WZR2-G300N as a router and I wanted to to extend my wireless network and I was hoping to use a second WZR2-G300N as a bridge/ access point to connect a wired desktop and a slingbox to my exsisting network. (Hopefully, I have the right definitions??)

 

Is it possible to connect 2 WZR2-G300N together to the same network?

You can connect them via wire not wireless with wds.

Thanks for the quick response, then what should I get? As I mentioned I would want to have wireless connected to my exsisting network with a few ports to connect a desktop and a slingbox.

 

Does Bufalo have a product that would work in this situation?

2 whr hp g54s would work

plug one into your network and the other will talk to it wireless.

What type of modem are you running behind this? It sounds like you're running into an issue with dual-NAT and may need to bridge either your router or the modem to get this to work properly.

   Slide the switch to AP position to change the WZR2-G300N to an AP mode.  Now it can talk to another wireless router of your network.
