How to use router as wireless repeater with Uverse?

Hi all, I've looked around and I've seen vague posts describing this process but I am still uncertain whether or not I can use the router as a wireless range extender basically.

 

What I'm trying to do is basically use a router (WNR2000v3) as a wireless access point/repeater. My main modem is the Uverse modem/router (Pace 5031NV).

 

If I use the method described here: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19852, it works, but this is wired--I was hoping to see a wireless method. The method here: http://vpncasestudy.com/download/WDS/WDS_Concept.pdf doesn't seem to work as the Pace 5031nv doesn't seem to have a repeater mode? Or does it?

 

I'm also wondering because in the settings for the Pace5031nv, there is a "Cascading Router" setting? Does this have any relevance as to what I want to do?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi term1nal,

 

Hopefully, I am understanding you right, but it sounds like you are trying to use your router as a wireless range extender via a wireless connection. If I am wrong, I apologize. I did some quick research on the WNR2000v3, and I do not think it has the same capabilities as the DG834G Repeaters, as the repeaters have the ability to connect to a wireless connection, while the WNR2000v3 does not, so it does not have that wireless option.

From the research I did on the repeaters, they seem like basic repeaters. We also offer one here. But it sounds like you are looking for something more like this than a secondary router.

 

Hope this helps,

David T
