Viso Geral: Mostrarei nesse tutorial como configurar um Access Point em modo repetidor de sinal Wireless .:.

Esse exemplo foi baseado no Roteador TPLink TL-WR941ND e Access Point TLWA901ND 1. Verifique as configuraes do Roteador principal: Vamos precisar do IP do Roteador Principal, nome de rede, tipo de autenticao e a senha da rede wireless Figura contendo o IP do Roteador

Figura contendo o nome de rede

Figura contendo Tipo de Autenticao (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) Encriptao que TKIP e a senha de rede no campo PSK Password

.:. Em posse dessas informaes o prximo passo configurar o Access Point 2. Acesse o Access Point digitando o IP no browser 192.168.0.254 (IP que vem de fbrica nesse modelo) 3. Click em Network e altere as configuraes da LAN do seu Access Point conforme IPs de sua rede. No nosso exemplo o AP ficar com o IP 192.168.0.2 e o IP do gateway (IP do Roteador Principal) 192.168.0.1. Clique em Save

4. Click na guia Wireless e Operation Mode marque Universal Repeatear e aps isso clique em Survey

5. Selecione a rede do seu roteador principal que no nosso exemplo se chama gilson e clique em Connect

6. O Mac Address do Roteador principal ser adicionado no campo MAC of AP. Clique em save

7. Click em Wireless Security e configure o tipo de autenticao e senha da mesma forma que est no roteador principal e click em save

8. Com essas configuraes o seu AP j est pronto para funcionar em modo repetidor de sinal

TL-WA501G and TL-WA601G can be configured as a repeater. The repeater extends the range of the wireless network by relaying the wireless signal of the remote Access Point or Wireless Router. NOTE: In the following sections, TL-WA501G/TL-WA601G is represented as REPEATER, and the wireless device to be repeated is represented as main AP.

To configure the access point as a wireless repeater, please connect your computer to the REPEATERs LAN port via an Ethernet cable (wireless connection isnt recommended to use for configuration). Then you need to perform five procedures:

1. Assign a static IP address for your computer. 2. Change the REPEATERs IP address to fit your main APs network. 3. Change your computers IP address to fit your main APs network. 4. Configure repeater mode on the REPEATER. 5. Wireless Security settings.
NOTE: Procedure 2 and 3 are required because we need make sure that both the computer and the REPEATER are in the same subnet with your main AP. Otherwise, there should be communication problems among them. 1. Assign a static IP address for your computer The DHCP server is disabled on the REPEATER by default, so we need assign a static IP address for your computer manually. Please click here to see how to do this. You need to configure your computers IP address in the same subnet with the REPEATER. By factory default, the IP address of the REPEATER is 192.168.1.1, so you should assign an IP address like 192.168.1.x (x can be any number from 2-254) to your computer. 2. Change the REPEATERs IP address to fit your main APs network The default IP address of TP-LINK AP is 192.168.1.1. If your main APs IP address is 192.168.0.1, we need to change the IP address to match the main APs LAN, so we need change it to 192.168.0.x (x can be any one from 2-254).

Step 1 Open the web browser. Please type the IP address of the REPEATER in the address bar. The default IP address is 192.168.1.1, and then press [Enter].

When the login window appears, please type the username and password both admin in the boxes.

Step 2
On the left side page, please go to Network->LAN. You can change the IP address in the box. Here we take 192.168.0.10 for example. The Gateway should be the LAN IP address of your main AP. Then please click Save to save the changes.

3. Change your computers IP address to match your main APs Network Because we used the 192.168.1.x on the computer to configure the REPEATER, and now we need to change it again to match your main APs network. Since the main APs IP address is in the 192.168.0.x subnet, we should change the

computers IP address to fit 192.168.0.x, and here we can take 192.168.0.2. So we can communicate perfectly with both the REPEATER and the main AP Again, you can refer here about how to assign an IP address to your computer. 4. Configure repeater mode on the REPEATER NOTE: Before proceeding, please make sure your main APs wireless function is working properly. Step 1 Open the web browser. Please type the REPEATERs new IP address in the address bar, and then press [Enter]. When the login window appears again, please type the username and password both admin in the boxes. Step 2 Please go to Wireless->Wireless Mode. If your main AP supports WDS function, please choose Repeater:

If your main AP does not support WDS, please choose Universal Repeater:

NOTE: If you are not sure about whether the main AP supports WDS, please consult its manufacturer. Step 3 Click Survey button on the bottom of Wireless Mode page. Then the AP List page appears. Please find SSID of your main AP, and click the Connect in the corresponding row.

Step 4 After Step 3, it turns you back to Wireless Mode page. The MAC address of your main AP or wireless should be automatically filled in the MAC of AP box. Please click the Save button to save the settings. NOTE: If there is no security set on your main AP, please ignore the following instructions, and all the basic settings are finished here. 5. Configure Wireless Security Settings At repeater mode, the repeater can only support WEP encryption. So you must make sure the security type on your main AP is WEP.

Please go to Wireless->Wireless Security. Please do the same WEP settings with your main AP. Then click Save to save the security settings.

Till here, all the configurations have been completely finished. If there are still problems, please contact us.
