The next routers must not have any connection to the WAN port. Right?
Hello, im new here i hope i get help..
I need to extend the range of my college wifi to rooms in a nearby building.
The wifi is open and is hotspot based: each time i connect, i have to enter my username and password.
The setup i made: access point on the roof of the building set as station, connected to a switch with 3 cables going down to three different rooms.
when i try connecting a laptop on LAN, it doesnt get automatic ip, so i set up the same ip+subnet+gateway+DNS as obtained when connected to the university's wifi. The connection works well !
i try connecting 3 laptops simultaneously each with a different IP.. the connection works great on all 3 laptops.
When i connect just 1 router with static ip... this works fine as well.
BUT !! when i try connecting 3 routers exactly like the laptop's configurations, the network fails... i dont know what im doing wrong ! (interference is not an issue since the routers are far from each others)
please help me.. thank youu
