thanks for your time.





I tried to use the dlink as repeater and it is bullshit. so i tried to

use it as an ap but i dont succed in having him talk with the other AP.

It looks like both aps wont just talk together. I tried different SSIDs

and channels but nada.



I am a bit stuck and dont know what to do ??



thnks & bests

Re: D Link and netgear working together
Your are correct in the fact that aps dont talk to each other, many
repeaters only talk to other aps of the same brand (dlink mentions this
on their site) aka this repeater only works with such and such dlink
ap. This may be your case. My suggestion is " to buy products of the
same brand" for repeaters, bridges etc.

What would happen if you configured one of your APs as an AP Client?  By
  entering the MAC address of the other AP, would they not communicate?
I have a couple of D-Link DWL2100APs and it works for me.
