I’ve followed some tutorials like yours, but using an ethernet cable to connect both routers (both using DD-WRT). The problem is that, after some time (I counldn’t determine how much time), devices cannot conect anymore in any room in my house because, somehow, Router2 interferes on the WiFi signal… Turning Router2 off, everything is fine (except I have weak WiFi signal when I’m far from Router1. Any hint?

Good tutorial. I’ve been looking to put a second router in a far bedroom bridged wirelessly to the main router in the living room on the other side of the house which is connected directly to the cable modem. The step through and diagrams really helped.

I tried configuring my Linksys E900 router as a repeater,per your instructions.I successfully installed DD-WRT platform on the router. However,after configuring the settings for the repeater ,when I try to ping the google DNS,I get “destination host unreachable”.What could have gone wrong? Also,I see this problem that I have to reset the Linksys router (30-30-30) everytime,I connect it via the LAN to my laptop to access its main webpage ( Looking forward to your response.

Will this work if I do not have a PC connected to the second(Linksys Router). My PC is connected to the Router in room 1 as it is a Modem/Router. I could connect the second router to a laptop?

Nice work!! Great teacher!!

dani bilel says:

thank you man! but my problem is that my router does not support the DD-WRT firmware so what is the best alternative firmware that i can use to repeat my wifi

droquesteni says:

So i already set this up, with your really good explanation. But now i’m facing a big problem that i hope someone could help me. I set the wireless bridge in my TP-Link wn841 that comes with 2 omnidirectional antennas. Then i remove one and put a Yaggi antenna with a booster signal of 4W. I could set this up and broadcast wireless signal with no problem as far as 40/50 meters. But now i want to catch signal as far 100meters, but could not. My question is, it is possible to grad signal from one antenna like my yaggi antenna, and then broadcast from the normal omnidirectional antenna?

Dabbawabbi says:

Great video, even better than the instructions on the DD-WRT wiki. With your help I finally got my repeater bridge working. Thank you!

KwaiTerk says:

I have to agree with the other comments.  Very well explained. Diagram help those who are not IT Savvy.

Roland Vankó says:

I was having the same idea! I’ve done it, but….because the two rooms are close to each other the wireless extender is interfering with the signal of the main router. I have no idea how to set them to different channels. Changing the standard is not an option, it loses the signal straightaway (doesn’t connect), simply set the 2nd router to a different channel is not allowed.
It runs well for 5 sec then it set itself automatically to the same channel where it gets the internet from.
