Thread: One WL-500g working as AP and client simultaneously

  1. #1

    One WL-500g working as AP and client simultaneously

    Is it possible to set up ASUS WL-500g as client and AP simultaneously?
    For example: I have my ISP connected using WIFI and over my home is every PC connected using ethernet cabel. But I have my notebook with WIFI and I want to connect my notebook to this network - but using WIFI. (see 'picture' below)
    Code:
    ISP ~~~<wifi>~~~ [asus]---<ethernet>-----[PC1]
                          |---<ethernet>-----[PC2]
                          |~~~<wifi>~~~~~~~~~[notebook]
    Thanks for answers...

    WDS does not work in Home Gateway mode in the way he needs.
