So my neighbor has recently been blessed with an upgrade to fiber for his internet. So I put up a 7600LR outside his house mounted on a pole so I could get access to his internet from across the street. Because of a dropoff in height from his property to mine, my reception was pretty spotty. So I installed a 2nd brand-new 7600 LR on a pole on my side of the road, goal beig to have it pick up the wifi signal from the base 7600LR and regenerate it in my neighbourhood.
- Is this a rational scenario?
- When I connect to the new wifi access point over wifi, since it isn’t connected to any network at this point, I don’t get an IP address on my laptop, and I don’t know if it has a static IP I can connect to to configure it, assuming I manually configure my computer manually with the same subnet parameters. Where do I go from here?
- (maybe unrelated) The signal from across the street which used to be OK in some spots before the 2nd 7600LR seems to have become less strong. Are there parameters I can tweak on the base 7600LR to improve my life ?
