Specs: Windows 7
Land line connection comes to our Tenda W300D 300Mbps Wireless-N ADSL2+ Modem Routers which placed in our house 10 meters from the main house. This router is connected to D-link wireless N150 ADSL2 modem router with digital wire 9D- link. This is further connected to D-link access point DAP-1360 to enhance the range. But there is no enhancement of range. Is the the connection right if so how to improve the range. If not please Suggest solution

The first thing I would do is try moving the extender to a different spot from where it is now. Even if you have a booster, the signal won't be extended if it's in a bad position in your home/business (i.e. in a closet, in a corner on the floor, etc). If it turns out that doesn't work, maybe the extender is defective.

✔ Best Answer
Also note that your Extender can be used as a 'wireless access point' by connecting it hard wired to your network (instructions can be downloaded as part of the full manual available online). If this can be done and enough separation between it and your regular wireless router, you may get the range you need. The key is to use the same wireless name and access key as your regular wifi router and your devices should choose whichever signal is stronger. It is also important to select a fixed IP address for the wireless access point in the same range as your router but different (if the routers string ends in : .1 then choose .2 or .11).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
