Hafiq:

Perhaps you are the one who is being unclear... and I'm not the only one having difficulty understanding your setup, your reasoning, or your motive.

Perhaps it is also a language factor... Hafiq, please understand that I am not criticizing you. I am trying to help you, as is aem. In order to help, we need to understand your setup and the reasoning behind it. So in order to help us help you... please answer our questions.

You say you created 5 wifi's because your wifi wont support the range. Does that mean you have 5 routers? Or 1 router and 4 Access Points? Or what?

Please give aem and I the details we need to assist you. If you work with us, perhaps we can help you solve your issue. I am a networking professional, yet I have no idea what you are doing, using, or why. Please clearly state what you have and what you are trying to achieve.

Ahhhh that's more like it! Although, I believe your pic shows 6 Wifi's... Is that 4 routers and 2 AP's??? Also, as aem asked please give model #s of your routers and AP's.

First things first, make sure each wifi is on a different channel... I'd go for skipping every other channel to avoid interference (just in case)! Looks like you have a different SSID for each, good! What security WEP, WPA, WPA2... are you using?

Also check the preferred wireless network order, since you say sometimes you get 2 connections. Usually the PC will connect to the strongest signal it finds.

Let us know how this goes!

See this is where i'm still not clear. It is a switch with 8 ports. How can a switch be used to create wifi networks? I want to get the manual of this "switch", please give the model details.

Great point aem... I didnt notice that 1st time around. Yes, you need a router plugged into that ADSL modem... unless your ADSL device has a router built in. I am unsure from your diagram if the ADSL and switch are the same unit or??? The router is what shares your Internet connection and performs NAT and DHCP for you.

If the ADSL and switch are 2 seperate units, or there is no router function built in to it... I say return all routers but 1 and go get AP's for those areas that dont have a strong enough signal. BUT... you will still have to run a cable from the router to each AP.

Hope this helps... but aem and I are still unclear of what you've got. Please be more clear so that we can help you get this going.

Well i router is a device that broadcasts a network, whether through wireless or LAN. Any devices/machines behind the router (as in a home network) needs to go through the router to the access to the outside world. It would seem this ADSL router is also a modem, which is fine. He then has a switch which he connects to the router/modem, which is also fine, but the problem i'm trying to understand is how can a switch allo for creation of different wifis? Technically a switch doesn't do anything but allow traffic to flow through it. It's right next to a hub in usage.

To be able to create different SSIDs (wireless networks) you would need multiple routers/Access Points surely. Maybe i need to get with the times, but is there such a single device that you can create multiple wifi networks off?

Precisely why I suggested he dump the other routers and get AP's instead... If his ADSL modem is attached straight to the switch then multiple routers plugged into that it wont work!
