Home User

The number of consumer electronic products which uses WiFi connectivity continues to grow, creating a natural demand for wider WiFi coverage around the home from devices which include games consoles, TV's, Printers, smartphones and many more devices. Domestic WiFi routers tend to be sited next to the landline master socket, typically in the hallway or at the one side of the house which is not always the most effective location for distributing signal throughout the building. The Huawei WS320 can be sited at any point in the home to provide a strong signal and minimise black spots.

    Pay 30p more via Expansys and you will have it this week rather than the "Usually dispatched within 1 - 3 weeks" quoted at Amazon.

    Insignificant price difference between two vendors suggests this is the normal price rather than a hot price.

    Why not buy a tenda access point for 16 quid on ebuyer, set it up in WDS. Aslong as your router supports WDS , check first

    yes there is. i have currently set up in my house a wi-fi extender which is connected to my router. it comes up as a an additional wifi hotspot in addition to the wifi i have on my router. i've also setup 2 different passwords for each of the wifi hotspots, cause my router is in my room and the wifi extender is in my living room, where guests can connect to it. but i'm not sure about the allowing access bit tho.

    anyone else feel free to correct me if i'm wrong

    If you set up blocked websites it will affect both wifi hotspots. You could buy another cheap router(cable router) and attach it by ethernet to the main router. That would allow you to set up another hotspot and having blocked websites on that hotspot and not on the main hotspot. I know that this router will allow you to set up blocked websites- TPlink. This website link has a guide but some of the steps are slightly different

    Last time I looked WDS only supported WEP so I wouldn't ever recommend it.

    It may, it may not. If there is another route you can bounce / repeat the signal around the house it will, if its because the signal won't get through the wall it won't help as it won't make the signal any stronger. The only way you will find out if it works is to buy one or two, play with them and see what impact it has.

    Which encryption will this handle? Is it only WEP or will it handle WPA/WPA2?

    The problem with a lot of wireless repeaters is that they only handle WEP which really isn't secure enough.

    I ordered one of these on Monday and it's been sent already!

    A WDS extender is going to suffer the same problems as any other wireless device if you have thick walls/foil-lined drywall. An alternative would be to go back to the ‘old’ method of extending a wired backbone connection to a room at the opposite side of the house and stick an access point on it.
    I use homeplug in my house to put Ethernet sockets on every floor, and two wireless APs sufficiently cover the entire three-storey house to get full signal strength wherever I am for my wireless devices. I can run cables to all my fixed devices (no point in wireless if they don’t move) and save the wireless bandwidth for things I actually want to be portable.

    I bought this item two weeks ago and it arrived in a few days. I'm on Sky and had a few dead spots around the house After a bit of fiddling about I got the repeater going( two ways of doing it,auto picks you your router signal if you have a RPS button on your router and manually configuring which is way to go with Sky )I couldn't get to the home set up page on my pc and was getting frustrated when I happened to pick up my phone and voila, the browser(chrome) had picked the instruction page up from Huaweii and I entered my SSID....result, no more dead spots anywhere and can even connect in the garage and greenhouse. I recommend the device. I had previously tried the netgear wifi extender from currys around sixty quid and had to return it as the improvement was barely noticeable.
