View Full Version : 2 Bridges One Router (Can It Work)
12-30-2005, 05:56 PM
I have two netgear WGE101 wireless AP's and one Netgear wireless WGT624 router. I configured each AP individually and successfully connected my devices; Replay on one and Slingbox on the other. The router is set with DCHP and MAC filter. When I placed both AP's online with each of their respective devices attached I can only access one AP. Can two wireless bridges exist on the same network? My guess is that they cannot and that I need to hook a switch to the one AP and then connect my devices to the switch....and then sell the other AP. Can someone knowledgeable about networks advise if the switch setup connected to the AP would work???
Thanks in advance all you GotApexr's..

Nope. That was the first thing I made sure of. Good call though. I can see where that would screw things up. It still drops the connection once I hook up both AP's. If I hook them up individually everything is golden. Once hooked up together I get nothing.
Thanks for the reply.

Are the APs running on different channels? I think most of them by default come on 6, and I know I had to switch mine to dodge my neighbor's AP. I think generally that shouldn't COMPLETELY screen it out though.
