Hello all,

I have two Cisco WAP4410n in our building. One is setup and connected to our network no problems, the second AP is configured as an Repeater to extend range of wireless. 

Now the problem is when the repeater AP is giving extended range to the wireless devices but They're no longer able to get out to the web. If I get back to the our main AP web works fine. Is there something I'm missing to check or add?

Access their setup pages (look in the manual), make sure they are NOT using the same channel as overlapping channels interfere with eachother, even in an extender setup. If they're using the 2.4GHz band Channels 1.6.and 11 are the best to use. In the 5 GHz band it doesn't much matter as long as the channels are different, but bear in mind that the higher channels use more power and are more susceptible to interference from environmental factors such as walls etc.
