I any chance to get it work with bt Opezone ?
I try it:
- Reapter got good signal
- Conected to network with good ip
But no internet 😞
don't think you can use a repeater for BTWIFI/Openzone
Just to double check.
Are you saying you want to use this indoors with your BT Home Hub to extend your Internet access OR extend the BT Openzone/WiFi/FON signal when away from home.
Apologies if I misunderstand.
No I want to use it at work, I'm on Bt infinity op 2at home so I Can Use free bt hot spots. Unfortunately signal is too low on My pod so I use netgear repeater but unfortunately doesn't work 😞
1.repeater is conetcet to Opezone with all ip and dhcp
2. Ipod is conected to repeater and get ip adres from dhcp but net not work 😞
I have a draft document which relates to the setting up of a different wireless repeater, which I tested a while back, its possible the settings may be similar?
OK sorry in truth I don't know but I am pretty sure that Openzone will not allow this as the extender probably is not able to log on by itself.
Anyway, good luck in your pursuit and let us know how it goes.
EDIT posted before seeing Keith's response.
If you also have a laptop with you on windows 7 or later you can rebroadcast a wifi network using connectify. Alternatively these terminal commands will work (Need to be in admin mode)
(2)Type and enter: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NetworkNameHere key=NetworkPasswordHere
(3)Type and enter: netsh wlan start hostednetwork
(4)Now share your wireless internet to the new adapter that should have appeared
The new network should act like the original network when connected to it.
I will check and confirm to you if this sharing will work shortly...
CONFIRMED! - Sharing via the above terminal commands DOES work. (I have posted this edit using the internet gained from it :))
I have managed to achieve what the original posted wanted to with the use of a TP-LINK TL-WR702N. It successfully repeats the WiFi signal and allows connectivity to the attached devices.
It’s important you have DHCP turned off on the device you’re using as a repeater.
Additionally, for the more geeky people out there – I managed to bridge the BT Openzone / WiFi connection too. The way to get this working is to ensure the device doing the DHCP allocation is supplying at least one DNS sever of 192.168.22.22. This ensures you can reach the OpenZone logon page.
