    It is very difficult for you to tell the difference between a wireless access point and a router because they share a number of features.Herewe have tried to explain exactly the difference between these two devices and provide you with a comparison of wireless access points with routers.

  2. Configure Wireless Access Point

    I have an existing network using a Buffalo N300 wireless router configured as 192.168.11 and 255.255.255

    I have recently purchased a Sony Bravia TV with internet capability and would like to connect a second router – the Belkin F5D-8233 – as an access point for the TV. As I already have the router, it is cheaper than me purchasing the Sony wireless dongle.

    Essentially, the Buffalo is connected to my PC in one room and provides the internet access. The Belkin would be in another room, connected via Ethernet to the TV.

    I have set the Belkin up to use 192.168.11.10 with the same SSID and security settings as the Buffalo. I have also set it up as an Access point.

    I have connected the Belkin and the Buffalo together via the Ethernet LAN ports to try and do an initial configuration but I cannot see the Belkin when I do this even though the LAN ports light up.

    Can someone give me step by step instructions on how to configure the Belkin so that it gets internet access wirelessly in the other room?

    I have been able to confure the TV so that it sees and connects to the Belkin but obviously this is of little use unless it can connect to the internet through that connection.

    Thanks, any help appreciated.

    How can I setup my wireless router as a wireless access point?

    I see a lot of different ways to setup a wireless router as a wireless access point (to another router).

    I have a U-Verse router and a netgear wireless router, is there anyway I can use the netgear router to pickup the wireless signal from the U-verse, and let me connect to the netgear router to receive internet?

    wireless access point vs router, Whats The Difrence?

    access point from company router

    Hello,

    I wish to run an ethernet line from our router (which has an extra IP address i have been using on my MAC G3 notebook) to an access point on the 5th level of our building. The router is on the second level. Is it possible for my MAC to detect the access point and configure it using the IP address I usually use? My colleagues and I want to receive the wireless signal from the access point between levels 2- 5 (max distance 4om) but we are not sure how to configure the access point. Hopefully when we plug it into the (non-wireless router) via ethernet , my MAC will be able to detect it and then we can configure it..????

    We intend to buy an apple AirPort Extreme base station wireless access point- it will run off the non wireless: ezxs16w linksys router.

    Cheers in advance for any help- we don't really have a clue about basic networking...

    Josh
