As I am working from home more, I wanted to ensure I have enough network access. In 2002 my apartment building had fibre installed to the basement
. But I did not make much use of this and so switched to wireless a few years later. Now I have two ways to access wireless, through a smart phone, and a wireless modem
. Both these operate via the same cellular network, which may become congested with many people working from home during the
COVID-19 Coronavirus emergency. One option is to have a wired connection reinstalled (the fibre optic node seems to have been removed so this would have to be FTTN), or a second wireless link.
Before I make any changes I wanted to ensure I don't break anything. So I thought I would record the settings for the "Client Mode
". I use on a TP-LINK TL-WR802N Mini Router
. This is a handy little gadget, which connects my wireless modem to wired Ethernet. But it took a lot of trial and error to set up.
Operation Mode: Client
LAN Type: Smart IP
- SSID (to be bridged): [id of the modem]
- MAC Address(to be bridged): [address of the modem]
DCHP Server: Disable
