I have a Dlink DIR-655 in the basement, next to the cable modem. It covers most of the house but does not get too far outside. I would like to put an access point on the first floor to service the backyard. I tried reviving an old Linksys WAP54G but the latest firmware (3.04) is so unstable I gave up after two wasted nights.
I did not see a Dlink access point that supports 802.11N, only access points as part of routers. Anyone have experience putting two DIR-655 routers on the same network?
I suppose I turn off DHCP on the second device. In addition, I set the SSID to the same and the channel to a non-overlapping channel (ie. 1,6, 11).
Any tried-and-true stories or advice is appreciated.
