Another stupid question.
I'm playing with a the Buffalo router and wanted to see if I could grab the wifi signal from 50 feet away, but around the obstacles. I get a signal of about 17%. So, I hooked up the router, switching the bottom button to Bi (bridge).
So, now I get 90% signal from the router and 10% signal from the wireless hot spot I want to connect to. Not enough to connect........very well.
I'm not sure if I need to change MY router's channel to match the wifi's.......??Mine is on 1, the other is on 11.
I installed Buffalo's software, but alas, I'm not that much of a wifi expert.
What I want to do, is grab the wifi signal at the best position, and then pick it up with my wireless client, which would mean I'm actually shooting the signal around the blocks, if you get my drift.
Maybe I havent' explained it very well, but any help on what I need to do, IF it's evern possible?
I know I can get a decent signal with the AP, but I still don't know if I can use this as a repeater.........
