I have two Cisco routers, one RV215W which has a wired internet connection on the WAN port. And one RV130W which I want to function as a repeater for the RV215W since I'm not able to provide a wired internet connection but it's in the wireless range of the RV215W.
I also created the same SSID on both devices with the same wireless network mode (B/G/N-mixed), wireless channel (1-2.412 Ghz), security mode (WEP).
But I can't get it to work. What I'm not quite sure of is how I should configure the WAN/LAN settings on the repeater. Should I disable the DHCP server on the repeater? Should I set the device mode to AP instead of router on the repeater? Should the LAN address of the repeater be in the LAN range of the WDS host?
These are just some of the questions I have and I would appreciate it if someone would be willing to help answering a few of them. I would be happy to provide screenshots of the current configuration I have if necessary.
I configured the RV130W as AP and got WDS to work. But only when the security mode of the wireless network is disabled or WEP. Are those the only possibilities to get WDS to work? Because I would like to use WPA2-Personal but then it doesn't seem to work.
Without actually testing, I am pretty sure you should be able to use WPA2 Personal. Is that selected on both of the devices? In order to really troubleshoot this it may be quicker if you called in and opened a case with one of our engineers.
