yup, over wireless and megabytes instead of bits.

Brew

Anyone using these as a series of APs? I am trying to, but while I have the configuration down for a single Host and two Clients off of that Host, I can't get the next step in the evolution: a fourth AP that stems off of one of the Clients in order to extend range beyond what can reach the Host.

What I want is noted inthis post on dd-wrt forums:

  • In WDS, you type in the MACs of the APs/Routers you want the current one to bridge with.
  • This is to be done for every AP/Router.
  • AP3 <-> AP1(main) <-> AP2 <-> AP4
  • In the above example, AP1 is the main internet router and AP4 is too far away to connect directly to AP1.
  • AP1 WDS will contain the MACs for AP3 and AP2
  • AP2 WDS will contain the MACs for AP1 and AP4
  • AP3 WDS will contain the MAC for AP1
  • AP4 WDS will contain the MAC for AP2


I can't get AP2 to talk to AP4 -- in fact, every time I try, I lose the AP2's connection with AP1, and therefore the underlying internet connection.

I followed the instructions as far was the WDS page (Wireless>WDS). But it isn't working. I'm not sure what to put on the Setup>Basic page for AP2 and AP4.

I assumed it would go like this: AP2 local ip address 192.168.1.5 / gateway 192.168.1.3 (i.e., the IP address for AP1) / local dns 192.168.1.3
AP4 local ip address 192.168.1.6/ gateway 192.168.1.3 /local dns 192.168.1.3

I also tried it by changing the gateway/local dns of AP4 to that of AP2. No go.

Does anyone who has done this have some wisdom to share?

In for 2.. Waiting for my shipment right now.

I been using my Airlink-101 AR670W (DDR-WRT) for years... I think it's time to try Tomato firmware.

Thanks for providing the step by step procedure!

Doesn't matter whether you use DD-WRT or Tomato, both run using Linux instructions and NTFS just sucks on it.. NTFS is not a Linux native file system and whatever drivers are available for it are not optimized, actually more like reversed engineered because NTFS is a Microsoft proprietary file system for Windows machines and not open sourced.. The current driver requires lots of processing power and memory to run, more than the CPU and available memory that this router has can handle.. You will see better performance with FAT32 file systems but ultimately, the best performance will be seen running EXT3 file systems since they are Linux optimized..

I suggest keeping one EXT3 drive attached to your router for NAS and keeping it backed up on a NTFS drive connected to your PC..

For $20 I bought one. I am going to try it out with dd-wrt and Tomato and like others have said even if I brick it I am not out that much.

Thanks OP

crazybuyer said:   Hi Sabre,
In your instructions you had mentioned on step 11 -

11) When logging into the ww-drt interface for the first time it prompts you for a password, I cleared the password just to be safe.

Could you please let me know how to clear the password.

Just change the password to whatever (You going to clear it anyway when you upgrade the firmware). It will ask for the new password once you go into the DD-WRT administration section. Remember in the firmware upgrade section to also select clear memory (DD-WRT may call it something different)

Are you upgrading to Tomato or DD-WRT?

It might be reaching the max transfer rate for your wireless card...? Try plugging in a gigabit wire into it and see if the wireless is the bottleneck.

I put my OOMA phone system after the router and use Wifi for laptops, initially work fine, but everytime i use the phone (OOMA), the WiFi connection will drop. (Same thing if put router after OOMA.) So i tried to flash to Tomato to have better QoS control as suggested by other posts. Following the instructions from #2 post, did 30/30/30 reset and went to the CFE menu and tried to upload the DD-WRT mini file. Can't never pass this step, no message from router (receiving the file or rebooting). Wait more than 10 minutes, still can't get to 192.168.1.1. I changed the IP address as in the instructions.

Anybody having similar issue to upload the mini file, or get get stuck in the first flash? I tried seveal times with no luck, now still use the original firmware. T.I.A.
If you can still boot into the Belkin or DD-WRT firmware, try resetting the firmware to default values. Then perform the steps to get to the CFE web page, or perform a 30-30-30 reset to access the CFE web page. Once on the CFE web page hit the clear/reset NVRAM link BEFORE uploading new firmware.

When you upload the DD-WRT mini firmware via the CFE page you should get something like the following message:
Receive file size=3502080
Upload completed. System will reboot. Please wait a few moments.

Continue
If you do not get a message similar to this, the firmware upload was not successful.

Other suggestions:
  • Some have had luck using IE only to upload firmware when using the CFE web page.
  • Clear your browser's Cache before performing any kind of firmware upgrade.
  • Disable your firewall before upgrading the firmware, its possible the firewall may prevent network access when changing IP addresses during the router upgrade from the Belkin firmware to DD-WRT or Tomato.
  • Never update the firmware via a wireless connection, never.
  • Disconnect all other wired computer and broadband modem from the router before upgrading the firmware. Also disconnect any USB devices that are connected to the router.
  • If your computer has multiple network connections (like two LAN ports, or LAN port and Wireless Port) disable all but the networking port wired to the router.
  • When uploading different firmware from within the DD-WRT or Tomato interface, enable the option to either reset the router to default values or clear/reset the NVRAM (if present).




Spent another hour and half trying to flash Tomato with no luck. I read this thread from 1st to last, and followed the instructions "step by step", but still can't get DD-WRT or Tomato. Tried two laptops (one with Vista and one Win7), both got stuck at the "UPLOAD" button from CFE menu: Waiting for response from 192.168.2.1 ...... Ping 192.168.2.1 and 2.8 (my PC's address), both OK. But didn't get the message with file size or anything else.

Turn off firewall, suspend security software, try the front button (Even tried using Firefox - as opposed by some guys here)... Tried everything I can think of, plus the suggestions above. Still can't pass the UPLOAD. Maybe there are some security settings in IE were preventing the UPLOADing. Will try messing that later.

I really want to flash with DD-WRT or Tomato, since my VOIP is cutting off my Wifi. Everytime use the phone, the Wifi will be lost, but internet using direct cable connections to the router is OK. (IF this one isnot good, maybe have to try another one.) Could you guys suggest anything else? Thanx.

If you can't get CFE menu to work, your final option is to use TFTP.. Instructions HERE.. I would load up the mini build of DD-WRT in the Member Summary.. Although TFTP is no different than CFE, it's at your own risk just like any other flash..

You might try this in Tomato. Enter it under tools/system then execute

nvram set usb_printer_bidirect="1"
sleep 2
nvram commit
sleep 10
reboot

Any idea's?

I got this router, and I'm not sure, yet, if I will install Tomato or DD-WRT. Right now, I'm trying to connect this to a downstream port on my WRT54G. I can see that an IP address has been assigned, but, I can't for the life of me seem to connect, via http or https. Anyone out there looking to get connected to the N300 downstream of another router?

Sounds like you have an IP conflict with both routers using the same IP address.. You won't be able to get access to the downstream router if it has the same IP as the primary.. Pull it off your network and connect to it with a PC also not connected to the network.. Change the IP address of the router to 192.168.1.2 or something other than 192.168.1.1 assuming that is your primary router's network IP.. Once successful connecting at the new IP, go ahead and add it back downstream of your other router.. You should now be able to connect to it using the new IP address on your network..

Followed the Tomato instructions and somehow after clicking the upload button getting page cannot be displayed. I disabled the firewall, aborted the anti-virus also and even cleared the Cache. Tried multiple browers many time but had no luck. Using Windows XP. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks OP!

I just wanted to let folks know what I believe to be a serious issue with these routers. I have mine set up -- correctly -- to work as a single Host and several wireless clients off the host (like a hub and spoke configuration).

The problem is this: the wireless connection between the Belkins and any computer is not consistent. This is evident from a simple ping test.

First I pinged it using a wired (ethernet) connection. Here are the results:

64 bytes from 192.168.1.3: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=2.235 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.3: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.557 ms

64 bytes from 192.168.1.3: icmp_seq=9 ttl=64 time=0.466 ms

Notice how short and consistent the time readings are? I then tried a wireless ping to a different network (my old Linksys router before trying to replace with these Belkins) that was about 40 feet away. Here are the results:

64 bytes from 10.0.1.9: icmp_seq=32 ttl=64 time=1.328 ms
64 bytes from 10.0.1.9: icmp_seq=33 ttl=64 time=1.224 ms

64 bytes from 10.0.1.9: icmp_seq=39 ttl=64 time=1.149 ms


Then I switched the Belkin wireless network, put the Host one inch away from the computer, and got these results:

64 bytes from 192.168.1.3: icmp_seq=95 ttl=64 time=87.052 ms

As you can see, the wireless connection is not only erratic -- but the delay on the ping jumps up incredibly high (at times, I got up to the 1000s ms).

I don't know if this is "fixable." It shouldn't occur when the router is directly next to the computer.

In all events, I've given up on them. I'm going back to my old router, and then using these as extenders only -- and on a separate network.

Hey guys,

So I've been running DDWRT fine for the past several weeks and have tried attaching a hard drive and flash drive to the USB ports. I've tried following the tutorials/guides via the DDWRT pages on getting things connected but to no avail. Dmesg output shows that the drives are connected but I can't mount them and they don't show up as devices on the router USB admin pages. Is there another prerequisite here? I noticed, after running df, that the disk usage (8mb I believe) is at 100% as well. If I run `mount` I get no confirmation or warning that mounting the drives succeeded/failed. It almost seems like the necessary tools aren't installed (via Optware)? Anyone have any tips on what I might be missing here? I've tried enabling JFFS as well, but to no avail. Core USB support, USB Storage and specified mount point (/mnt) have all been specified as well.

I'm not at home right now and don't have access to the router so I can't get any more descriptive in terms of logs/messages/etc.

Got mine in the mail last week. Looks great...just doesn't power on. Contacted Expansys, and was told I need to pay return shipping AND a restocking fee applies...oh well was worth a shot.

Don't bother with NTFS, you need to install Optware and it has to go on an external drive in order to load up the NTFS driver.. Look in your PM box for instructions on getting it to work with either FAT 32 or EXT2/3..

Actually, the drives I've tried mounting are not NTFS (Forgot to mention that). I made sure to try mounting drives that are FAT/FAT32.

I wonder if they are getting tired of people bricking them with Tomato. Still that doesn't sound right. I'd try again and/or contact Belkin.

My quick ping test from an HP 8760w Wireless N laptop (sitting on my couch in the den) connected to one Belkin router (through walls and about 30 feet away), to a Dell PowerEdge T110 (Windows Home Server 2011) wired via a switch into a second Belkin router, both running DD-WRT:

I can't complain about either of the Belkins I have running DD-WRT.

i bought 2 routers and installed DD-WRT and Tomato on each. My Dd-wrt running very well and it never drop connection even single time since its on. (I checked only once tomato and it was running well too but since that i did not use till now)

I gave static IP address to my 3 computers, when i check LAN under Status, it shows all computers connected with Router (Host Name -- IP Addresses -- MAC Address --- Conn. Count --- Ratio[4096] ) but in under Host Name only one computer name showing while all others are showing as " * " instead computer name. Is it normal? is any way it shows computer "names"?

Hypnosis4u2nv would you mind PMing me or posting those instructions here. =) Thanks!

So I've been running DDWRT fine for the past several weeks and have tried attaching a hard drive and flash drive to the USB ports. I've tried following the tutorials/guides via the DDWRT pages on getting things connected but to no avail. Dmesg output shows that the drives are connected but I can't mount them and they don't show up as devices on the router USB admin pages. Is there another prerequisite here? I noticed, after running df, that the disk usage (8mb I believe) is at 100% as well. If I run `mount` I get no confirmation or warning that mounting the drives succeeded/failed. It almost seems like the necessary tools aren't installed (via Optware)? Anyone have any tips on what I might be missing here? I've tried enabling JFFS as well, but to no avail. Core USB support, USB Storage and specified mount point (/mnt) have all been specified as well.

I'm not at home right now and don't have access to the router so I can't get any more descriptive in terms of logs/messages/etc.


Don't bother with NTFS, you need to install Optware and it has to go on an external drive in order to load up the NTFS driver.. Look in your PM box for instructions on getting it to work with either FAT 32 or EXT2/3..

Hi! Is the power adapter ratings printed as only 120V as shown on the website? Or is it 120(100)-240V?

Wonder if anyone could help to confirm with the actual power adapter itself coz im intending to use this outside US.

TIA.

Just a quick word for anyone having issues similar to mine: reboot the router! Either a soft reboot or quick unplug/plug should do it. It looks like that's what's required to get the Samba service started up, oddly enough. Thanks Hypnosis4u2nv!

Followed the Tomato instructions and somehow after clicking the upload button getting page cannot be displayed. I disabled the firewall, aborted the anti-virus also and even cleared the Cache. Tried multiple browers many time but had no luck. Using Windows XP. Any help is appreciated

I assume you are on dd-wrt mini? If so, then the upgrade should keep running for some time till you get to the Tomato screen. As noted before, it is probably best if you are on IE and have a static IP before doing the upgrade because the Tomato has DHCP server disabled by default so you won't get an automatic IP.

I tried different browsers also. Will try private browsing and see if that helps. Thanks for all the suggestions.
