The configuration described here will use the VigorAP 802 as a Wi-Fi extender to link a Vigor2762ac router to a VigorAP 903 using the 5GHz band as shown below:

Step 1 Configure Vigor2762ac

Create the Wi-Fi SSID in the Vigor2762ac router.

  • Go to Wireless LAN(5GHz) >> General Setup
  • For index 1 enter your required SSID you want to use (In our example we have left the SSID at the default “DrayTek_5G”)

Step 1 Configure Vigor2762ac

Create the Wi-Fi SSID in the Vigor2762ac router.

  • Go to Wireless LAN(5GHz) >> General Setup
  • For index 1 enter your required SSID you want to use (In our example we have left the SSID at the default “DrayTek_5G”)

Step 2 Configure VigorAP 802

It is recommended to disable DHCP Client and change the LAN IP address to a static IP address to make it easier to locate the access point. Here we have set the LAN IP address to be 192.168.1.11.

  • Go to Operation Mode Configuration menu
  • Select Range Extender
  • Click OK to save

  • Under Wireless LAN (5GHz) menu go to Access Point Discovery
  • Click on Scan to discover nearby Access points. (It may take a minute to find and list the available SSID’s).
  • Locate and select the SSID configured in step 1 on the Vigor2762ac router (DrayTek_5G).
  • Click Select for Universal Repeater mode.

  • This will now take you to Wireless LAN (5GHz) >> Universal Repeater menu
  • Enter the Pass Phrase which must match the Pre-Shared key configured for the Vigor2762ac Wi-Fi SSID.
  • Click OK to save.

 

You should now be able to see your PC appearing the Vigor2762ac Wi-Fi Station List when connected through the VigorAP802.

Set up a SSID in the VigorAP 802

Go to Wireless LAN (5GHz) >> General Setup menu

Enter a SSID that you wish to use.  We have used Table-1-5G.  (It can be the same as the SSID used in the main router)

 

  • Go to Wireless LAN (5GHz) >> Security Settings and enter the Pass Phrase. (This will be used for Wi-Fi client connections as well as the Universal Repeater settings in step 3).
  • Click OK to save.

 

Step 3 Configure VigorAP 903

It is recommended to disable DHCP Client and change the LAN IP address to a static IP address to make it easier to locate the access point. Here we have set the LAN IP address to be 192.168.1.12.

 

  • Go to Operation Mode Configuration menu
  • Select Range Extender
  • Click OK to save

  • Under Wireless LAN (5GHz) menu go to Access Point Discovery
  • Click on Scan to discover nearby Access points. (It may take a minute to find and list the available SSID’s).
  • Locate and select the SSID configured in step 1 on the VigorAP 802 router (Table-1-5G).
  • Click Select for Universal Repeater mode.

 

  • This will now take you to Wireless LAN (5GHz) >> Universal Repeater
  • Enter the Pass Phrase which must match the Pre-Shared key configured for the Vigor2762ac Wi-Fi SSID.
  • Click OK to save.

 

Now configure the required SSID’s for both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands for Wi-Fi client connections.

You should now be able to access the Internet from any access point.
