Leviton Wireless 802.11n Dual-Band Gigabit Router as an Access Point, 47611-WG4

Can the Leviton 47611-WG4 (Wireless 802.11n Dual-Band Gigabit Router) be used as a wired & wireless access point in home & small-office networks that have an existing router?

    The Leviton 47611-WG4 can be setup as a Wireless Access Point (AP).  By default, the Leviton 47611-WG4 has DHCP enabled and has an assigned local IP address of 192.168.0.1.  To serve as an AP two changes must be made to the router settings.


    1. The default address of the 47611-WG4 should be changed to match the addressing scheme of your existing router, but it should be set to an address that your existing router will not assign.  For example, if your router assigns addresses from 10.0.0.100 to 10.0.0.200 then you would want to select and address such as 10.0.0.99 or 10.0.0.201 (so that that there is no possibility your existing router will assign that address to another device).
    2. DHCP must be turned off in the 47611-WG4.

     

    Note: in this configuration make all device connections using the 47611-WG4 LAN ports (including the connection to the existing router)—for this application the WAN port will not be used.
