Set Up AC1000 or AC1200 as Repeater over Ethernet

Here are the steps to configure a repeater over Ethernet.

Simple AP Setup:

– Log in as admin

– Administration > Operating Mode > Basic > Save

– Network > WAN > LAN Connection Mode > Bridge > Save

– Wireless 2.4 GHz > Basic > Multiple SSID > [change to the same as the Primary router] > Save

– Wireless 2.4 Ghz > Wireless Security > Pass Phrase > [change to the same as the Primary router] > Save

– Wireless 5 GHz > Basic > Multiple SSID > [change to the same as the Primary router] > Save

– Wireless 5 Ghz > Wireless Security > Pass Phrase > [change to the same as the Primary router] > Save

– Reboot

Notes:

– On the Repeater, the Ethernet ports are now bridged so there is no ‘WAN’ or ‘LAN’. Use any port to connect to the primary router.

– You can have as many Repeaters as you want. You should also be able to connect serially (i.e. Primary Router <—> Repeater 1 <—> Repeater 2 <—> Repeater 3)

– Devices connected over Wi-Fi to the Repeater will show up on the primary router (Status > LAN Host) with ‘Interface Type’ corresponding to the Ethernet port on the primary router.

– As the repeater is a true bridge, there is no IP to access it. You will need to reset the repeater to access the web interface.

– Any ReadyNet router model can be configured as a repeater with the above steps.

Set Up ReadyNet Managed Routers in Bridge Mode

1) Simple Setup, no IP Address Available

This method is good for testing, however, once the router is in Bridge Mode you will not be able to access the web interface of this router.

– Log into the router as admin and navigate to Administration > Operating Mode.

– Set mode to ‘Basic’ then click Save & Apply.

– Navigate to Network > WAN and set the field ‘LAN Connection Mode’ to ‘Bridge’ then click Save & Apply.

2) Simple Setup, with IP Address Available

The router is configured as a bridge and will have an IP Address allowing you to log into this router’s web interface.

– Log into the router as admin and navigate to Network > WAN. In ‘Connect Name’ choose ‘New Connection’. Make changes as indicated in the following image then click Save & Apply.

– Navigate to Administration > Management then:

  • Change the Admin password
  • Enable remote administration
  • Click Save and Reboot.

Set up Wi-Fi Repeater so Repeater has Addressable IP

On the Repeater:

A -Enable Remote administration (Administration > Management.

Change admin password

Enable remote administration

Save

B -Navigate to Network > WAN and change

WAN IP mode to Bridge. Save

C -Create a new WAN interface.

In Network >WAN, click ‘Connect Name’ and choose ‘New Connection’. Click Save.

D -Set 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz SSID to the same as that of the Primary AP. Save

E – Set the 5Ghz to Repeater mode. Click Save.

F – Click the Wireless 5 Ghz Repeater tab and choose the primary APs and connect to it. Save and Reboot

Test:

1) Connect to the Repeater with an Ethernet cable and check the DHCP IP that you got. It should be from the primary AP. Check if you can surf.

2) Disconnect the Ethernet cable. Connect to 2.4 Wireless broadcast. The SSIDs are the same on the primary and repeater, _but_ the passphrases  are different. Check if you can associate and can surf.

3) Similarly test the 5Ghz repeater connection.

If the above 3 tests are good, then you can;

1) Change the wireless passphrase in the Repeater  (2.4 and 5 Ghz) to match the primary AP.

2) On the primary AP locate the IP of the Repeater (Status > LAN Host). Say for e.g. the IP of the Repeater in the Primary AP is listed as 192.168.11.111 then, from the WAN side you can access the web interface of the Repeater with 192.168.11.111:8080 *because we did step A.

In the repeater two WAN interfaces were created. The first default one was changed to a bridge (Step B) and bound to all the LAN interfaces. A second WAN interface for management only (step C) was then created.

Ghost Calls

To prevent ghost calls, adjust the settings in the red rectangle as shown below. These settings are found in SIP Account>Line {n}>Advanced.

These setting instruct the device to only accept INVITEs from the defined IP. The device will ignore scripts that run which probe all publicly accessible IPs for open port 5060. Such scripts cause the ghost call ring.

Once these settings are added there should be no unnecessary rings and security will be enhanced.
