Anyone know if this can be used as a Wireless Access Point?
#7
I'd just like to say that yes, it's a great price, but I used to have this router and it dropped my connection by a considerable amount.
#8
EIther that seems absurdly cheap, or I am way out of the loop since buying my Linksys 4 years ago.

Mental. Heat added.

from the info on the Play Product Description;

Connecting the G Wireless Router to your cable or DSL modem lets you share your broadband Internet

its possible with most wifi cable routers

if you disable the WAN port or internet connection settings, disable DHCP and if possible also disable the firewall - as long as the router is connected via a rj45 cable to the main cable router, then you can turn it into a wifi access point and 4 port switch/hub

Apologies for hi-jacking this thread but I am looking for a wireless router/access point (I think that is what I want) where I can have it connected (wirelessly) to my main ADSL router. I want to be able to put the new access point (or whatever) in my sons rooms and have it connect wirelessly to my ADSL router so I can then run a RJ45 to his Sony BluRay player to save me having to buy a Sony wireless dongle for it. I know I could use the homeplugs but is there anything along the lines of what I've suggested?

To connect 2 wifi routers wirelessly, and therefore extend your wireless range, then you need to look into WDS (Wireless Distribution System) - and to be honest a pain the the rear to set up and also you only get half the bandwidth. Also some wifi access points do not support WDS and if you plan to do WDS then different makes of routers tend to be tricky to set up. I would use home plugs to connect the wireless access point in your sonns bedroom to the main wireless router and you will get the full bandwidth

looks like it might be supported by dd-wrt.

In the scenario described WDS wouldn't halve the bandwidth (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_Distribution_System#Example.5B2.5D) since the Blu-ray player is wired to the access point and the router is wired also. It's only when used as a 'wireless repeater' that the bandwidth is halved.

Do note however that ethernet is typically 100mbps duplex (100 up/100 down) whereas wireless G would be up to 54mbps half-duplex (ie. one way), but then Homeplugs/powerline adaptors are half-duplex too; and like wireless, although not as bad, not as efficient as ethernet cable meaning 200mbps wireless n < 200mbps homeplug < 100mbps ethernet (full duplex).

On the other hand what's your internet speed, 8mbps probably less*, so you're very probably just fine?
(* - unless on Virgin cable or in a city centre)

No idea if these Belkin's support WDS, just trying to clear-up the issue.

There isn't a wireless access point in his son's bedroom; he's asking how to connect a network device to a wireless router?

http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

can you elaborate on that - I cannot see any part of that site saying its supported by DD-WRT ?
#23
thanks - just to reiterate it is NOT supported by DD-WRT - thats a pity

Just thought I'd make it clear to everyone:

YOU WILL NEED AN EXTERNAL MODEM FOR THIS TO WORK AS A DSL ROUTER

that may or may not be a problem for some people.
#25
This one is also £9.99 from play, was previously £6.99 on a UKHD.

Very good piece of kit, not sure on the differences apart from the external antenna. Can be used as an access point only, which is why i bought one. Also in AP Mode the LAN ports still work.
