DDWRT WPA2 AES Repeater Bridge Setup

I found this awesome video today that explains step by step how to make a repeater for any wireless router using DDWRT! I’m currently doing it with WPA2/AES to boot!

After everything seemed to be working, I made sure by running a quick scan with my wireless card on my laptop. Sure enough, there’s now 2 different routers with the same SSID, and connecting to either one yields the same results.


eth1      Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 00:1F:90:CA:F7:84
                    ESSID:"KB3RXM"
                    Mode:Master
                    Channel:11
                    Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11)
                    Quality=81/100  Signal level:-53 dBm  Noise level=-61 dBm

          Cell 04 - Address: 00:1A:70:75:E7:E6
                    ESSID:"KB3RXM"
                    Mode:Master
                    Channel:11
                    Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11)
                    Quality=98/100  Signal level:-25 dBm  Noise level=-61 dBm
                    Encryption key:on

So, I want to thank daovertaker for his great tutorial. Now maybe I can get better reception in the back yard!
