Bridging Two Locations

By ron ·
I am looking to connect two wireless networks together as one has the internet access. I am wondering what is the best way to connect them together. I have several wireless routers including 2 Linksys WRT54A+G and 3ea Belking Wireless repeaters/access points. The distance is such that it seems to take more than just one repeater in the middle to make a reliable connection. Belkin had told me that I could daisy chain the wireless repeaters together inorder to span the distance, however, once I received them they now say that is not something that will work.

Please provide any ideas using the existing equip. I also have a D Link 514 and a Westell 327w wireless router.

from the WAN port on the back wireless router to one of the LAN ports on the router with internet access. Problem solved, less signal loss, more reliability.

What is the actual distance?

by jdclyde In reply to Bridging Two Locations

It might just be a matter of picking up a yaggi to extend the distance.

Agreed, as long as you have clear line-of-sight...

I've seen wifi hops of several miles with the right gear.
