3CRWER100-75 WDS questions


I have 2 Routers of the above and would like to set-up a WDS between them to be able to extend my wireless network for the entire house.

What I did so far is:

1.Set-up both routers with static ip, router A is connected to the internet (L2TP).

2.I've disabled the encryption on both routers so no WEP/WPA is configured.

3.On the WDS config page I used router A as "ROOT-AP", router B is "AP-STA" and showing "connected" status to router A.

Now to the question - if I'm trying to connect with my laptop through router B (wireless connection) how my client suppose to get an IP address?

Should I configure DHCP scope for each router?

*** Remark - if I'm configuring my client with static ip and put router A as the default gateway it works of course but I don't think it should work like that.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advanced.

You need to enable the DHCP server on the Rooter A and the Router B will pass the requests through to your WI-FI card.

You can not have 2 DHCP servers, hence the one on the Router B is best disabled.

Hope this helps
