Problem: At level 2 the Wifi level is too low and some times it fail to connect.
Problem Solving: Used an old TP LINK Wifi Router to Re-Boost The Signal.
Identify the devices you will be working with. For the purposes of this guide, different crucial network devices will be given names like “Router 1,” “Computer 2,” etc.
Your existing router will be referred to as Router 1. You will need at least one free LAN port available on Router 1. Identify the existing IP address of Router 1 and the relevant credentials to log into it with your browser. If your router is wireless-enabled, take note of the ESSID and key for the encryption.
DLINK is A Router 1.
The router you will be using to extend your network will be called Router 2. Identify its IP address and credentials as well. If it is a new router, this information should be supplied in the provided instruction manuals.
Plug in Router 1. Connect your high-speed modem to the WAN port if you have one. Connect Computer 1 using either a wired LAN connection or a WLAN connection.
Log into the router using your credentials. Check and see what the IP is; most routers default to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
For Malaysia TM user use this:
Make sure that DHCP is enabled. This router will be assigning IP addresses to your whole network.
Plug in Router 2 and connect Computer 1 to it’s LAN. Log into it by dialing it’s default IP in a browser and type in the default administrative credentials so you can change some settings.You will not be using WAN on this router; no changes need to be made to WAN settings.
Disable DHCP on this router. You are already using Router 1 to assign IP addresses.
- Configure the IP address for Router 2. Make sure that you are in the same subnet. In most cases this means the numbers before the first three decimal points are the same 192.168.0.?. The only requirement is that it does not share an IP with Router 1; they must have different IP addresses.
- If you are using wireless, configure Router 2’s wireless settings to be identical to Router 1. Match the SSID and pass key.
Grab an Ethernet cable and connect the open LAN port on Router 1 to the first LAN port on Router 2. Remember not to plug into the WAN port on Router 2.
Finally you are able to use Wifi at Level 2 with Full Bar !!
