|My bridge is actually going to yet another access point. The way the network is set up looks like this:|
Satellite Modem to
ZyXEL Firewall, going to 2 WAPs, 1 hard line to me, and the router
DLINK Router, going to the wireless bridge, 8 port switch, and remaining access point
8 Port Switch, going to 6 hardwired users in the building the equipment is located in
DLINK access points, each connected to one Buffalo Ethernet Converters(access points that receive a wireless signal and put it out to users thru a cable basically)
Wireless Bridge, going to one more wireless bridge about 200 meters away, which is hooked to a Linksys router acting as an access point
Linksys router provides a signal to a Buffalo Ethernet Converter that provides signal to 2 users.
I know it sounds like a mess, but with the exception of the firewall/router/switch setup, it was the only way I could provide signal to everyone in a spread out area. I have everyone connected to the internet now, and its running ok especially for having 30 people on it, but I would like to increase speeds if possible. I agree with you about the wired network being available but its not feasible, and the vast majority was here when we got in country. I certainly appreciate the feedback you've given me so far.
