|I have my WA830RE setup as a client bridge to mimic the repeater functionality, my steps are:
Go to status > wireless > site survey > join my network
Then it takes me to wireless > basic settings and I add a virtual interface, i enter my settings then I go to wireless security and also enter the same settings as my router and my new settings for the virtual interface that will work as the bridge to share the internet connection
after this i go to setup > basic setup and change the local IP adress to sometihng diferent than the one from the router.
This settings work perfectly with my cable modem but with my DSL modem "HG8245" I get connectivity for a few seconds then its gone, the repeater does not disconect i just lose acces to the internet, i can still access my router thru the repeater but not the internet.
anybody knows if any of the advanced wireless settings could fix this issue? the CTS/RTS, RTS threshold or short preamble? i actually have no idea what could be going wrong since this works perfectly with my cable modem, the DSL one is the only that gives me this issue.
