How to configure WRT54G as a follow-up to my Airport extreme "n".

I bought a WRT54G version 1 less than 6 months ago.

Last week I got a Time Capsule from Apple with Airport Extreme 802.11n.

As the Time Capsule AE "n" will be faster,

I would use it rather than the main router.

But how do the WRT54G an extension


basically is there a way I can configure two routers to work

together and make the best of each?

Thanks in advance


Ignore the saber_tooth. It is just repeat everything. If you have a WRT54G web interface is something like this. You have to change the next radio button to disable the DHCP server on the WRT to the ' DHCP server: "leave"Enabled"to"disabled. "

On the same page, you will also need to change the "local IP address". The default is You must change this IP address to an available inside the Apple LAN address. The LAN on the most convenient airport is set up under the network tab of the Airport utility (at least on Windows version). The standard is to "distribute IP addresses" and "share a single IP address (using DHCP and NAT)" and to use the addressing

You can also view this information on Windows, in a command prompt window by entering "ipconfig". The interesting information is the IP address on the connection to the local network, the subnet mask and the default gateway. On a Mac, type "ifconfig" in a Terminal. Search the en0 interface, which should display the IP address after "inet" and the network mask. You will find the entry door with "netstat - rn". Locate the line of destination 'by default'. It shows the door entry in the second column.

The subnet mask or network mask is usually or 0xffffff00. With this subnet mask, all IP addresses with the same three digits belong to the same subnet. If you have an IP with subnet mask IP address - 254 belong to the subnet. All IP addresses would be possible. Of course, you can not choose the IP address of the gateway (Airport). I don't know what IP address the airport itself uses by default. If you have any doubts, after the IP address, gateway address and subnet mask that you found on a computer that is connected to the Airport (i.e. The WRT not connected anywhere).

  • How to extend a WiFi router network not Apple using Airport Extreme and Express?

    My cable ISP company just gave me a new modem/router - a DG of Arris - 2470. For the last two years I used a cable modem independent older with a connected Airport Extreme (both located on the ground floor) and an Airport Express station on the floor as an Extender. I was very happy with the power of the signal around the House.

    Since his arrival to the Arris router my signal has become very low to the floor. I would use my two Apple devices to extend/boost my network, but do not know how to do this.

    Thank you!

    Basically, you have two options:

    1. (Best overall performance of the network) Connect the extreme and Express on the Arris Ethernet gateway device and configure all for a traveling-type network. This would require an Ethernet connection between all routers that can be accomplished by either using Ethernet cable or the use of mains adapters.
    2. (The overall performance of the adequate network) Simply connect the extreme to the Arris Ethernet, then extend the extreme using the Express.

    Which of these do you prefer?

  • How to create a network redundant ISP failover using 2 Airport Extreme

    Hello friends,

    I have 2 different lines of rented ISP related to my Airport Extreme 2. Was curious to know if these 2 AEs can be interconnected somehow to create a network of ISP failover. Users on AE 1 traffic would be transparent reassigned to the AE 2 and vice versa, if corresponding ISP fails. When the access provider is in place, they will return to their AE in elementary school.

    Thank you.

    Not without a smart dual wan router. That is to say done good load sharing.

    Extreme is about as simple a router you can find... He has the absolute minimum of functionality.

    Users on AE 1 traffic would be reassigned transparent to the AE 2 and vice versa

    You can do this by using some manual intervention... a simple change of entry door is usually sufficient.

  • How to connect printer 2.4 Ghz band dual band Airport Extreme?

    I need a new printer connect to my Imac running OS 10.7.5 wirelessly.  My router is multiband Airport Extreme.  Most printers seem to does not support multi-band wireless;  they can't stand the 2.4 Ghz band.  Is there some document printers (I need scanning and copy also) which will be easily connected to the Airport Extreme multi-band, or is it possible I can put the Airport Extreme for a printer would only watch the band 2.4 Ghz?

    I found something on Google that says wireless devices should be filled, by disabling the Wlan partition.  I don't know what that means.   Another article said I could name the SSID separately and connect the printer to the 2.4 Ghz band.  Even when I don't know what that means.    Can you help me?  I do not know the printer Canon MG 5720 I bought does not work and I need to just throw it out.  I want to not to make another mistake.

    Thanks if anyone can help.

    On your Mac...

    Click Save

    Click Update at the bottom right of the next window and give the airport a minute full for restart

    The name of your normal wireless network is now a 2.4 GHz signal only.  The other wireless network has "5 GHz" appended to the name, so it's 5 GHz network

    Connect the printer to the 2.4 GHz network

    The name of '5 GHz' added now is the network of 5 GHz. connect devices in this band for a faster connection.

  • Wifi configuration with Airport Extreme (A1143), iMac (El Capitan) running. Need of a direction.

    I recently moved to a City University and living in a housing facility run by the University. It's got broadband by Comcast for free with the room. I plugged all the necessary equipment (modem and cable) to the iMac and the internet works well for a week now.

    Now I want Wifi for the apartment. I decided to dust off my old 1st or 2nd Gen extreme base station Airport. I read that it can still work with El Capitan, so I went and tried to install it. First of all, I updated the firmware and connected the appropriate cables. Everything seemed to go in the direction of the work, but I hit a bump on the road. Wifi works for the iMac. I unplugged the ethernet cable and it's receiving internet, but I tried to get my iPad Wifi and smart phone and it doesn't seem to work. I used the good passwords etc. Nothing.

    I found it odd that I get Wifi to my iMac, although the Airport Extreme light is orange. Normally, it should be green. Of course, I don't use this thing in forever and actually don't think it would work, but so far the iMac becomes Wifi, but aren't the other devices and auburn is turned on. So here's a screenshot of what I see in the Airport utility.

    Can anyone help or point me to the right direction? Also it has to do with the campus of the internet, I'm getting?

    The attached picture shows it's getting to the internet via wifi (not plugged into the modem) but he doesn't seem to get wifi on my other devices in the apartment. The Airport base station we connected directly to the Modem. I also followed the steps of my iMac had originally planned to make it work and it did, but only for the iMac. I expect the unit to green thereafter but he did not. What gives?

    The A1143 was introduced in January 2007 and arrested in March 2009, so the model you have is at least 7 years and older, and as much as 9 + depending on when the product has been implemented.

    The average lifetime of a router designed for home use is about 5 years, so we're not sure how much time and effort you want to invest in AirPort Extreme you have there.

    Frankly, it is remarkable that the product works for the iMac, because status messages indicate that you have an Internet connection.  We cannot explain this one.

    We also don't know if amber on the most convenient airport is flashing, or remains Orange fixed. Can clarify you on this, please?

    If you want to try to start over again and set up the AirPort Extreme, the first bit of information that we need is the number of brand and model of your modem.  We don't need a serial number, only the manufacturer name and number for the modem to the model.

    We will try to help, but who can give no assurance that we will be able to get things working for you.

  • How can I configure my Airport Extreme in Bridge mode (use the 3rd party router)?

    Data sheet:

    Airport Extreme - v 7.7.7

    Luma Surround Wifi 8

    I recently bought a wifi (luminance) surround system.  It comes with 3 routers that you place around your home.  Unfortunately I still have stains died in my house I'm looking to add my Airport Extreme (AE) to Luma network.  Is it as simple as plug the AE to the network (via Ethernet) and the bridge mode selection in the configuration of EI?

    I can see the AE of my iMac, and it is green.  How do you know that actually extend the wifi of my router Luma range?

    I searched the forum and all messages dealing with this are several years old.

    Thanks for your time...

    Basically, you want to create a mobile network with your Luma and AirPort Extreme routers. As you said, the extreme would need to be connected to the luminance by Ethernet and reconfigured as a bridge.

    In addition, the following are also required on the extreme:

    • Wireless mode: create a wireless network
    • The network name must be the same as that used by the Luma.
    • The type of wireless security and the password must match that of the luminance as well.

    To 'know' that the extreme extends the network of Luma, simply consult the BSSID value in the drop-down of OS X Wi - Fi. It must match the ID of the airport on your base station. Note: You must hold down the option key before clicking on the icon of the free Wi - Fi connection.

    Whenever you change the modem or modem/router on a network, AirPort Extreme will be reset to the default settings and then set it up again to work properly with the new modem. For this he would be...

    Turn on AirPort Extreme for a few minutes... If it is not already turned on

    Hold in the reset button on the back of the AirPort Extreme for 7-8 seconds, then release it.

    Allow a minute for the AirPort Extreme restart to a slow, flashing amber light status

    Make sure that an Ethernet cable connects to one of the four LAN <-->Ethernet ports on the modem/router on port WAN "O" on AirPort Extreme

    To start the Setup program, click the WiFi icon at the top of the screen on your Mac and are looking for a list of the new AirPort base station

    Just below that, click directly on the AirPort Extreme and then follow the prompts for configuration "Wizard".

    When you configure AirPort Extreme once again, you can use the same wireless network name and the same password that you used with AirPort Extreme with the 'old' modem, if you wish, or use a new wireless network name and password
