This article applies to SMC7004AWBR, SMC7004VWBR, SMC2404WBR, SMC2804WBR and SMC2804WBR-PG

1. Connect a Computer to the Router (preferably use LAN to connect)
2. Logon to the SMC Router and Disable the DHCP under the LAN Settings.
3. Change the LAN IP address to be in the same range as the main Router. For e.g., if you use another SMC Router as main Router with IP as 192.168.2.1, then change this Wireless Router to be 192.168.2.2. This would ensure you to manage the Wireless Router without any problem.
4. Connect this Wireless Router with the Main Router using LAN ports. Check if the LED for the LAN port connected to the Main Router is lit, if not try with a Cross over cable.

Place the Router in appropriate place, and get a seamless wireless connection.

  • Hai, I succesfully configure 2 smc router (support WDS - SMC7904wbrA2 Repeater) & SMCwbr14-N2 (main router). Actually it so eazy only 5 minute everything complete compare i had spent 2 week (8 hours a day) in order to configure the router till my wife ask me to sleep outside the house.Let follow my instruction Just coppy from privious (every boddy knew to setup) Connect a Computer to the Router (preferably use LAN to connect) 2. Logon to the SMC Router and Disable the DHCP under the LAN Settings. 3. Change the LAN IP address to be in the same range as the main Router. For e.g., if you use another SMC Router as main Router with IP as 192.168.2.1, then change this Wireless Router to be 192.168.2.2. This would ensure you to manage the Wireless Router without any problem. 4. Connect this Wireless Router with the Main Router using LAN ports. Check if the LED for the LAN port connected to the Main Router is lit, if not try with a Cross over cable. Now follow my discovery : 1. Specify which router gonna be main router. (I'm choose SMC WBR14-N2 as a main router) 2. Configure the wireless part :Wireless - Enable - Specify the channel -Exp- Channel 11 -and other setup as usuall. But (very importan) don't enable WDS. Leave it disable. It is the main problem. Most forum ask to enable it. (please don't do it). If your turn it on (WDS) it will act as AP ,no longer main router. -No need to key in mac addr of other AP. Believe me!!! Half is done. (only 2 1/2 minutes) Just need to configure it as wireless router. 2. Let choose Smc7904 as repeater. How to configure. So simple. Go to wireless setting, enable WDS and press rescan icon and automatically MAC addr of main router (SMCwbr14-N2) detected and save . Importand: Once WDS enable, SMC7904 no longer work as a router and even don,t "understand" signal from the wired LAN. At that moment internet will disconnected. Don't worry. Disconnect any cable from repeater and now it's only ready to capture signal from main router wirelessly and broadcast to the air. Complete. Another 2 1/2 minutes is done. Note : WDS is enble only on the exist repeater not for the main router. This is the main problem faced by all of us. I,m very happy today feel free to share with others. Any problems mail me , matrixc2@yahoo.com fell free to assist. good luck.
