I need this router to behave as a wireless NIC (bridge) so that I can connect my desktop to wifi. I don't want it to repeat over wifi (or if it does, it should have a different SSID from the main router)
Resaon I don't want it to repeat over wifi with same SSID as main router: the speed over wireless when this router is in the repeater mode is dismal: not hitting above 0.5MBps whereas the original wifi (downstairs, 12 meter away) gives 3MBps downlink!
This was with the stock firmware.
My roommates were on the verge of stifling me when I was testing this out.
1. I guess I need to use the 'Client Bridged mode' to connect my desktop to the wireless router downstairs (without risk getting physically hurt)?
2. How do I test if this router craps out after an hour of heavy downloading? Are there some tools or website to simulate heavy traffic through the router (besides downloading multiple torrents from TBP?)
From all the dropdown box options, I do not see 'Client Bridged mode', and that is the option I really need!
