Hi,

I have 2 routers, one is connected to the Internet and share its connexion via Wifi B/G using the channel number 6, and the other one gets the Internet connexion from this one via Wifi.

My second router that gets the Internet connexion is set as a wireless repeater, so it wirelessly shares the connexion, using a new virtual Interface, so I can specify a new encryption method and a new name for this new 'AP'.

What I want to do is to specify another channel, and also use Wifi N from this repeater, as it's an ASUS WL-500W.

I cannot see any settings that allow me to use Wifi N nor changing the channel...



Can someone please help me?

You would need a router with dual radios in it to be able to have one radio linked to the main router on one channel and the other radio set up as an access point on another channel. A single radio cant work on multiple channels at the same time.
