I am trying to access a local public WiFi network. I purchased a Linksys WET11 bridge and I want to connect it to my Netgear MR814 so I could route the public signal in my home network but the router does not seem to regognize the internet from the bridge.
The bridge seems to be working fine. I detects various home networks and I was able to get it to pick up my existing wireless network, albeit through a Linksys ethernet adapter, on one of my PCs. I have tried all combinations of switches on the WET11 - X and ||
Note the signal strength of outside networks is pretty weak - 40% at best per the WET11. I plan on getting a 18dbi directional antenna when I can make the router/bridge combo work.
The router is currently configured to get IP dynamically from the ISP.
Do I have the router configured properly? Will I just have to get the external antenna/have a stronger signal? Am I stuck having to get a Linksys router to go with the WET11 to make this all work?
