Technicolor TG582n and WDS


[link to this post]
 
Hello

Does anyone know if the router supports it and if so can it be enabled? Either through the GUI or telnet

Thanks

I can't help with WDS in this instance but in general, it's not really desirable - It's slow, laggy and insecure.
You'd be better off running a cable or using "Homeplug" type devices.

Thanks, I am now looking at putting it into bridge mode and using it with my time capsule, used to use the time capsule with my virgin media cable modem and that had great range around my parents house. Now I live in a flat and this technicolor barely reaches 2 rooms away!

Does anyone know how to enable bridge mode?
