ForewordHi everyone, I'm Mr. Lin. The day before yesterday, we posted about router bridging, which already mentioned two wired methods. Many friends asked about third method, wireless bridge of router, we agreed, and we must publish contents of wireless bridge. We've already posted related articles about bridging routers, but some friends reported that article was somewhat confusing, so today we'll use a relatively easy way to understand how wireless routers bridge. TextWireless bridge saves connection steps compared to wired, and is also convenient, especially for large houses, wireless bridge is more necessary, you can add an additional wireless router bridging (WIFI wireless relay ) to pass WIFI signal to where it is needed, let's walk through steps.
Router Wireless Bridge Stages
First, you must have two routers. These two routers are called primary and secondary. The main router connects to network first, and secondary router is used to transmit Wi-Fi signal of main router. router.
1. Set up your main router
1. Set up main router for normal network connection. Under normal circumstances, main router can already connect to Internet normally, so there is no need to configure main router anymore.
We only need to know WiFi name and password of main router. Let's assume WiFi name of main router is "O2.4gkb29b" and WiFi password is 12345678
Second, set up an additional router
1. First, enter secondary route setting interface. Use a computer to connect to secondary router's WiFi (of course, you can also use the traditional method to connect to a computer with a network cable if it can be connected).
2. Open any browser on your computer/mobile phone and log in to secondary router (we use tp-link as secondary router as an example, and default public login address is 192.168.1.1).
3. After entering additional router, click [Application Management] - [Wireless Bridge]
As you can see, main router's Wi-Fi name is listed.
Select your primary router's Wi-Fi name, then click Next and enter your primary router's Wi-Fi password (so remember your primary router's Wi-Fi password).
After entering, you have successfully connected to main router. To avoid IP address conflicts, master router automatically assigns an IP address to secondary router. This IP address belongs to same network segment as main router.
What's point of using this IP address?
This IP address is IP address of the secondary router after successful bridging.
The next step is to set a new wireless network name and wireless password for secondary router. Let's set name of wireless network as "c924", remember this name (you can also specify another one arbitrarily), and then save it.
Actually, at this point, wireless connection of additional router is completed. After you click Finish, secondary router will automatically restart. After restart, you can find additional router in Wi-Fi signal and enter password you just set. , you can directly connect to secondary router.
Make sure bridge was successful
Now that bridge is established between primary and secondary routers, let's check, check if secondary router can be connected.
Try connecting to Wi-Fi of secondary router, find Wi-Fi name of newly configured secondary router in Wi-Fi signal: c924, enter password to connect.
This is secondary Wi-Fi name of "c924" router that was just set and connected successfully.
Actually, whether connection is successful or not, you can also return to main interface of additional router to verify that wireless connection is successful.
Setting up entire pairing process is also very easy.
Leader of Weak Electricity adds here, you can see phenomenon here, that is, after a successful bridge, entry address of secondary router has changed,
Before bridging: The default secondary router login address is 192.168.1.1,
After creating bridge. The secondary router's entry address becomes 10.168.1.208, which is same network segment as primary router's IP address. So if you later log into second router, you will need to enter IP address 10.168.1.208.
