You can select from the hosts that are already connected to the router by ticking the check box under Enable WOL column for the Available hosts. But this will work only if you are on your home network. In a simplified world, DDNS will give your router a single address instead of a string of numbers which are hard to remember.
To know how to set up DDNS, follow our previous guide. Apart from speed control, prioritization can be set based on packet type, application type and MAC address wise.
We will be using the MAC Priority only as the other too are quite complex to setup. Apart from priority, download, as well as upload speed also, can be fixed for each MAC address.
These features are just tip of the iceberg, DDWRT has much more and covering all is beyond the scope of this article. Eveything else works flawlessly - upwards of devices at times which include macs, windows pc's, 6 phones, 4 ipads, etc. Only 2. No other wireless networks in range. Wpa2 aes personal security. Ive tried others with no luck. Id rather not mess around with the way my network is set up since it took me a while to get it the way i wanted. Edit: read about the mac address filtering but that suggests either "allow following mac addresses" which doesnt work for me since i have guests a lot.
Dont want to do this since people roam around throughout the house. Theres also the wl command and ive read the wiki but have no idea how to configure it or if its even appropriate in this case.
Also i wouldnt know if id run it on the ubiquti device the wiki says wl command is not as advanced for atheros routers or the repeater n. Back to top.
I don't want to change my ssid names for repeaters as i like to have the same ssid throughout so devices can roam without any issues. Mainly my parents would give up on the internet if they have to change ssid's manually sometimes i've tried the multiple ssid thing and a lot of times devices will attach to a weaker signal and not be able to browse rather than connect to the stronger signal as long as the previous connection is available.
Guess i'll keep searching for alternate solutions.
Extended Wi-Fi range but MAC address filtering not working
Wep will also often work, but it is not secure. Keep in mind any security settings will need to be configured including MAC filtering in order for the Secondary Router to connect to the Primary Router and also for clients connecting to the Secondary Router to gain full access to the connectivity of the Primary Router. There are some factors to consider when setting up Security for Client Bridge mode that may or may not be factors when setting up Repeater Bridge mode. I simply have not experimented with this. When you enable security on the repeater click save not apply, then click on the administration tab scroll down to the bottom and click apply settings.
You will then have to power cycle the repeater twice unplug and plug back in twice in order for the repeater bridge and AP to synchronize.
DD-WRT Forum :: View topic - [SOLVED] Access Restrictions don't work
This has worked for four repeater bridges for me. Edit - pmiller - I can also confirm the power cycling to sync the repeater to the AP. I played around with other security settings later on the AP and found the 2 power cycles to be unnecessary after the 2 had originally sync'ed- no idea why this would work, but it did. Example : iwconfig eth0 ap D Even when manually setting the AP to connect to, the connection still roams onto the rogue AP.
Running: iw dev ath0 disconnect causes a connection reset, and in my testing, the adaptor always automatically reconnects to one of the good access points. I am not sure I understand. What good is your router unless your extending the network in question with it?
If thats the case then you should be setting up your access point to connect to a specific device. Ramhound I've attempted to clarify. The router provides internet access to my devices.
