Sadly the wireless in my house isn't quite up to reaching everywhere. So I equipped myself with a sitecom 300n range extender.
Having set it to Universal Repeater mode, I've told it the details of my main ESSID and its passphrase. I've set its ESSID to be the same as my main ESSID and the same channel. So an iwlist scan sees two ESSID's with the name of my main ESSID.I've disabled DHCP on the sitecom. All seems good.
Then I connect to the sitecom's ESSID and the DHCP seems to work, I get an IP address and default gateway etc. But I can't ping anything or resolve any domain names, despite /etc/resolve.conf being properly populated.
Anyone got any pointers? Sadly the device isn#t supported by dd-wrt...
