My neighbor is kind enough to allow me to use his WiFi to look for work etc but the signal is bad, I have a huawei b315 router and a mobile router, can I use any of the two to extend the signal to me without using a network cable?
a way to do this would be by means of range extender that plugs into a wall socket for power but it has to be configured correctly other wise they dont work. config the extender by connecting to host router WIFI with the extender. login onto the extender once connected to the host WIFI configure network settings to Same ip range of the router. with subnet and default gateway then disable dhcp on the extender you are good to go.
e.g. host router 10.0.0.2. Extender IP 10.0.0.x (not 2 though, any number onward up to 254) extender subnet 255.255.255.0 extender gateway 10.0.0.2 and disable DHCP then you are done.
dont use the suggested wps pin button as quick install guide suggest this sometimes does not work its intermittent
We are next door to each other in a complex but he doesn't want a cable running through as he has a 2 year old, will my B315s be able to receive his WiFi signal then u just connect to mine? I am trying to avoid the extender due to unemployment and financial restraints.
You just need to configure it with the same SSID (and password) but one a different channel. google wifi channels and make sure it's not on an overlapping band (this will create a dead spot) ie: 1, 6, 11
Get a device that has Wireless bridge capabilities (You connect wirelessly from the device to the SSID that his AP is broadcasting) Device like this:
(This is a cheapo, get a decent device, 2.4Ghz would be best as it needs to connect through walls to his AP in his house)
