How do I convert my second Router into an Access Point

Hi everyone, February 11, 2014
I would like to use my Sitecom router as an access point. Is this the way t
o do it?
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and I have a Ubee UVW-3200 cable Modem/Router
. On port 1, I connect a second Sitecom dual band Wi-Wi Router AC1750 WLR-8
100 connected to its WAN port.
I would like my Sitecom Router to become an Access Point with the same (2.4
GHz) SSID as the Ubee Modem/Router, so that I can "roam" throughout the h
ouse without losing signal. The 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi of the Sitecom AP should stil
l be useable when within reach.
Current configuration settings (Sitecom as Router):
Ubee Router Sitecom Router
LAN IP adres: 192.168.178.1 192.168.10.1
DHCP Server: Enabled Enabled
Ipv4 address: 192.168.178.10 192.168.178.10
DHCP Status: No DHCP clients Show all clients
2.4 GHz Radio: Disabled Enabled
5.0 GHz Radio: N/A Enabled
2.4 GHz - SSID: Ziggo5C5CC Sitecom0F7FF1
2.4 GHz channel: Disabled Automatic
5.0 GHz channel: N/A Automatic
2.4 GHz security: WPA+PSK WPA+PSK
2.4 GHz password Ubee's own PW Sitecom's own PW
5.0 GHz - SSID: N/A Sitecom0F7FF2
5.0 GHz security: N/A WPA+PSK
5.0 GHz password: N/A Sitecom's own PW
Network connection: LAN Port 1 WAN Port
Proposed configuration settings (Sitecom as Access Point):
Ubee Router Sitecom Access Point
LAN IP address: 192.168.178.1 192.168.178.2
DHCP Server: Enabled Disabled
Ipv4 address: 192.168.178.10 N/A
DHCP Status: Show all clients N/A
2.4 GHz Radio: Enabled Enabled
5.0 GHz Radio: N/A Enabled
2.4 GHz - SSID: Ziggo5C5CC Ziggo5C5CC
2.4 GHz channel: 1, 6, 11, or Auto 1, 6, 11, or Auto
5.0 GHz channel: N/A Automatic
2.4 GHz security: WPA+PSK WPA+PSK
2.4 GHz - password: Ubee's own PW Ubee's own PW
5.0 GHz SSID: N/A Sitecom0F7FF2
5.0 GHz security: N/A WPA+PSK
5.0 GHz password N/A Sitecom's own PW
Network connection: LAN Port 1 LAN Port 1
Questions:
1. Will this configuration work as intended?
2. Can I have the same 2.4 GHz SSID (Ziggo5C5CC) on my Ubee Router and my S
itecom AP?
3. Will I still have cabled internet on my Sitecom AP?
4. Will I still have Wi-Fi internet on 2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz of my Sitecom AP?
5. With its DHCP disabled, can I still acces the Sitecom AP configuration p
age through my PC browser when using the Windows 7 TCP/IPv4 configuration o
f "obtaining an IP address automatically", or do I have to use the Windows
7 PC TCP/Ipv4 configuration of "use the following IP address:", and enter t
he new Sitecom LAN IP address of: 192.168.178.2?
If I do not do things right, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks,
