Hi, I have followed the steps in https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/RUTX11_Wireless#Client_Mode as claimed by another post.

However, the RUTX11 does not announce a new Wi-Fi set in the "Name of the new network".

In essence, we'd like to configure the RUTX11 as follows:

A sensor announces a Wi-Fi AP to connect to it. By doing this, our software can download the data by setting its IP. Now we'd like to extend the range by introducing the RUTX11 in the middle. We could connect to a second Wi-Fi AP or use the Ethernet cable if necessary.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Mario

Hello,

If you are looking for a WiFi bridge/relay/extender configuration, then we have a configuration example on our wiki page here.

I also suggest taking a look at a forum thread here because you will need to download the relay package from the package manager to make it work.

Kind Regards,

Hello,

Thank you for your answer. I followed step-by-step the explained procedure.

I wanted to double-check that no "Acces Point" is created by the router and that instead, an AP with the same name as the extended AP is created. That's confusing me since when on-field I want to make sure that I'm connected to the extended Wi-Fi rather than to the "weak" AP. Please confirm this is the case.

Best regards,

Mario

Hi,

In this configuration, all the traffic from the WiFi network on the node (RUTX11) is relayed (RelayD) to the main AP. This includes DHCP requests. Thus, the network is extended and bridged between RUTX11 and the main AP.

Kind Regards,
