My office runs a normal LAN. The company has recently purchased the building next door, and we want to extend the LAN into this building using a wireless link.
To achieve this, we have purchased 2 Netgear WPN802 wireless access points. The Netgear website has a step by step guide to configuring the WPN802 in repeat mode to allow a network to be extended wirelessly, http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101549.asp
The problem is that when the two are cumminucating in repeater mode, the speed is extremely slow. We have done a throughput test, and the results show speeds of 10kps.
If the router is taken out of repeater mode, and used as a normal access point, then the same throughput test gives a much better result, around 2Mbps.
Any ideas why this is?
