WNDAP620 as repeater for Fritzbox wireless signal

Hello,

 

I bought me the WNDAP620 AccessPoint as WLAN Repeater.

I'm using a FritzBox 7490 which is connected to the internet. Now I want the WNDAP to repeat the Wireless signal from the Fritzbox to extend my wireless range.

But I can't get it run Smiley Sad I nearly tried everything to get it working, but without success.

 

Can anybody help my and tell me how I have to configure my WNDAP620 to use it as Repeater for the Fritzbox?

Thanks a lot!

 

Regards

Jan

 

P.S: Firmware is up to date.

Model: WNDAP620|ProSafe 3x3 Single Radio| Dual Band Wireless-N Access Point

Hi krja1012,

 

Welcome to our community!


Unfortunately, we cannot use the WNDAP620 as a repeater for your fritzbox. WNDAP620 supports wireless bridging but it should only be connected to another NETGEAR access point.

 

If you wanted to use a repeater, you might want to check our WiFi range extenders.

Hi JohnCarloV,

 

thanks for your answer Smiley Happy In this document I found that the WNDAP620 has a "Repeater Mode", so I thought that it can repeat WLAN signals.
http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/datasheet/en/WNDAP620.pdf

Advanced Wireless Features
Wireless Distribution System (WDS)
•	Bridge mode: Point-to-point wireless
WDS mode
•	Bridge mode: Point-to-multipoint
wireless WDS mode
•	Repeater mode
•	Adjustable Transmit Power Control
(TPC) from 100 mW down to 0 mW

Now I'm confused a little bit.
Despite of that, which access point base stations I can use here? (no problem to connect the base station to LAN cable)

Regards 

Jan

krja1012,

 

Yes, you are correct. But it can only be used as a repeater of another NETGEAR access point as per the image attached above. As long as it is a NETGEAR Business Access Point that supports wireless bridging.

Hi,

I bought another WNDAP620. I will connect this one directly to fritz box by wire and then I'll try to get the bridge to the other WNDAP620 running.

I hope this will work like expected.

 

Thanks for your answers Smiley Happy

 

Regards

Jan
