WEP in Repeater Setup 01/04/2012
I have a two story older home (1000 sq ft each floor). The main router is downstairs in the office. Without another router upstairs, wireless won't reach upstairs. So, we had to string cat-5 through the house to rooms upstairs. I don't like cables cascading down the stairs - hazardous. I purchased a second WNR2000 to serve as wireless repeater upstairs. Good idea, except this router only works as a repeater on WEP or no security - NOT with WPA or WPA2 (although each offers it when used individually). Once the repeater was set up, I got 4+ bars of wireless everywhere in the house. BTW, changing from WPA2 to WEP on our Win7 computers was a nightmare. Changing the same on our smartphones, BD players, iPads and HDTVs - easy as pie.
