linking 2 building using wifi & this hardware list
last week =
Hi all i am new to this sort of wi-fi set up, so maybe someone off here can help me out please... .
sorry i have poor grammer & spelling so please ask for more info if you need any.
well afew weeks ago i was asked to link a building to another building on some companys grounds, one is a small office with the adsl router in it & the other as nothing in it so far.
but will be installing 3 or 4 pc what are being built for this office as we speak, they would like to use Wi-Fi only due to trucks & that.
So here is the list & do i just bridge the links together ?, or what do i do ?.
do i link the AP to the netgear router using rj45 & then the ant to the ap in the main office, & then i link the ant & ap to the switch in the other office using BRIDGE mode ?.
2 x 150Mbps Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND
2x TL-ANT2424B 2.4GHz 24dBi Grid Parabolic Antenna
1 x TL-SG1005D 5-port Unmanaged Gigabit Desktop Switch
The offices are only about 200foot apart, so what that list be ok to link them using Wi-Fi.
& both offices would talk to each other i.e. swap doct's, share files etc... ?.
today i have done this =
i have installed one ant so far as i am waiting for a lead & put the ant near by the main office with the internet, also in the main office as a netgear router & a belkin wi-fi ap for the office staff.
so i have installed the Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND in to the netgear router, & then i have walked to the other office & installed the other Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND & the TL-SG1005D 5-port Unmanaged Gigabit Desktop Switch but no ant as yet as i need a cable for it.
however i set both of the Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND up in Bridge mode & i have given the main office one the ip address of 192.168.0.101 & plugged the Ant in to it. & the other office ( with out a ant ) i have given the Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND a ip address of 192.168.1.102 along with bridge mode too.
& i could see the main office what has got the ANT from the other office with out the ANT, & i have set both AP's to channel 11 like i set up in the main office with the internet adsl.
but i could not go on the internet at all no page found, so is it not working because i need both ANT's connected so one side as a good signal but the other side as no signal ?, or should i not use BRIDGE mode on both of the Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND ?.
i am getting a bit stuck now......, so can some one give me some pointers please.
