Setting up a Vigor 2830 with AP800 in Universal Repeater Mode
If the VigorAP800 is set to Universal Repeater mode then it can be configured to connect to and repeat a wireless connection. This can be used to increase the overall wireless coverage by locating the VigorAP800 at a position where its signal can be received in places where the original signal was weak.
In practice it is best to locate the VigorAP800 at a location that picks up a good signal from the original access point so that the quality of the connection between the two is good. This will allow a higher bandwidth link to the original access point and reduce the possibility of throughput issues because even if a WLAN client has an excellent speed connection to the VigorAP800, the actual throughput obtainable is determined by the connection speed between the VigorAP800 and the original access point.
After configuration of the VigorAP800 is complete, ensure that the LAN port of the VigorAP800 is not connected to the network, or an IP conflict will occur, as explained in the setup guide below.
