This document describes how to configure a UTT router as a wireless repeater on Network via wireless connection to extend WiFi coverage.
1. a UTT Business Router (hereinafter shorted as “the Router"), such as UTT router N518W, AC750W, AC750GW and AC1220GW. Firmware Version: 3.0.0 or above
2. a PC/laptop connected to the Router wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable
1. Connect a PC to Router B’s LAN Port via an Ethernet cable or wirelessly.
2. Check Router A's LAN Gateway IP address (you can check via the label on the router or contact the support).
If it isn't 192.168.1.1, just enter Router B’s Web Interface and skip to step5.
If it's the 192.168.1.1, you should change Router B’s LAN IP address as 192.168.1.2. (Any IP is ok, but should not be conflict with Router A, here we just use 192.168.1.2 as an example.). Configure as follows:
Type 192.168.1.1 on the address bar to enter Router B’s Web interface
3. Go to Network > LAN, Edit the default LAN IP.
4. Change 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2, then click Save.
5. Disable Local Area Connection/Ethernet on the PC, then enable Local Area Connection/Ethernet again.
6. Enter 192.168.1.2 in the address bar to enter Router B's Web Interface again.
7. Go to Network > DHCP Server, untick Enable, disable DHCP Server
8. Go to Wireless > WDS, enable WDS, then click Scan button
9. Select the Wireless SSID you want to connect, then click Select
10. The information will be shown on Router B, then click Save. (Note: In this step, you should use the same parameter of Wireless Channel, Wireless Mode and Channel Width between Router B and Router A.)
After the status display Connected, you can connect wireless to access Internet via Router B and Router A.
1. Avoid DHCP conflict, there can't exist multiple DHCP Servers in the same broadcast domain at the same time, and the device which works as an access point should disable DHCP Server.
2. You cannot use the same LAN Gateway IP address in the same broadcast domain, it's better to change the LAN Gateway IP of the device works as an access point.
