|Hi there, this is my first post, so I hope I'm not transgressing any of the rules.
I am having a few issues, this is my network:
[Primary]------------[Secondary Netgear WRT54G V 3.1]
[Linksys E3200 V1]+++(optional ethernet to PC)
The two secondary routers are connected via DD-WRT Repeater Bridge (wireless).
The firmware versions:
Netgear WRT54G = BS V24 preSP2 14929 [STD]
Linksys E3200 = NEWD k26 NV60K 19342 [MEGA]
So I set these two routers in Repeater Bridge mode, following the wiki. After applying the last changes, neither router was sending it's respective gateway IP address.
In other words, I could no longer access either router by typing the IP address in an address bar. A quick ipconfig gives the gateway of the primary AP. I can't even access this one, it just times out.
Furthermore, I'm getting general instability; while running network intensive tasks such as online gaming, the network will cut out twice an hour (when connected to either the Netgear or Linksys routers).
Last issue: There are IP address conflicts with all systems connected to either DD-WRT router; I get a message in windows, and the network cuts off.
I realise that I can probably access DD-WRT by doing a hard reset on either router, and may gain better stability with earlier recommended builds, but I have no idea about the Repeater bridge.
Also since the network is used heavily throughout the day, I wanted a full plan of action before making changes.
Any help would be appreciated.
