      Setting up 834G to repeat 834GT

      Hi, I currently have a DG834GT as my main router and a spare DG934G (834Gv3) sitting around. I want to set the 934G up to repeat the wireless of the 834GT. Both have the most up to date DGTeam firmware with WDS available. I have tried getting them set up but cannot get it working. The WDS setting pages on each router are very different.

      Can anyone tell me how to set them up?

      I don't know if it is possible but this article may help Answer

      Note that WPA security will probably not work.

      Unfortunately those devices in that guide have different settings screens to both 834G and 834GT devices.

      The 834G asks for a MAC address of the repeater, the 834GT just asks for the SSID. I've followed all of the guides on the web and they just seem to render the repeater uncontactable and effectively doing nothing. Is using a MAC address access list essential? Surely someone out there has tried using a DG834GT as a repeater? I'm really stuck.

      According to Netgear neither of these routers support WDS, but that may not apply to non-standard firmware. I don't know why Netgear would not implement it if it is possible. Have a look on the Netgear forums, you might find something there.
