Hello all,

I'm new here so hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. We have recently purchased a Cisco WAP 121 with the intention to extend wifi to the other end of our house (to our home office) where the connection is currently patchy to say the least. I've managed to configure the AP and get it working as a wifi point but it is on a seperate network so you need to log on with new credentials depending on which part of the house you are in. I understand that I can change the configuration so that it forms a single network with my central Sky router but i've no idea how - any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!!

Here's your manual
http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/wireless/access_point/csbap/wap121/administration/guide/WAP121_321_AG_en.pdf

You will note page 90 says you can't do a WDS network unless you use Cisco equipment. You won't be able to have the sky routers wifi in a Wireless Distribution System which is the configuration that allows you to seamlessly move between wifi APs.

Oh no, thanks for the info. Looks like I was given duff information when I bought the AP :-(

 

Can you recommend any other APs that would provide this functionality?

 

Thanks for your help!
