I have three (3) wireless modems with two setup as extenders. The primary, WRT600N, and one extender are dual band. The second, E3000,dual band is setup as a “Repeater Bridge”. The third unit, WN2000RPT, is just a single band extender. The purpose was to have continuous wireless through out the house because it was not working with only one unit. I now have the three units setup with their own SSID and Security Mode.
The Security Mode for all three is WPA2 Personal; the WPA Algorithms are all AES; the WPA Shared Key are all different for each modems band. Therefore when using wireless, you need to select which one you want. My intent was to only have two and those being a choice for the dual band units.
They are all setup and are working but I do not have a continuous wireless signal. As you travel through the house you need to change to another modem with each having its own SSID and a separate security code.
Should there only be one SSID for each band on all modems?
Should each modem be set to the same security mode for each band?
Or, what needs to be done to make this work?
Both Linksys modems are on DD-WRT software.
