Four home hubs in one house!

This layout was built and tested by BT Beta forum contributor John Parker.
All Hubs are running firmware 6.2.6.E at time of writing.

4 home hubs as repeater

The basis of the above setup is that three slave hub are installed in various parts of a large house where distances are too great for a typical single Home Hub wi-fi.
The significant requirements are:

Slave hubs to have their DHCP disabled.

Slave hubs to have their own fixed IP address within the master hub's private pool range.

Each slave is connected by WDS to the master in star formation .

Detailed Procedure

Use the process described in my wireless repeaters article. That article comes with many warnings - this is for experimenters only!

Set up all the slaves first using three different IP addresses, and I would recommend and .176 and .177 then seek them in turn from the master as described in the main article.



Regarding a query about 2 slaves, one of which should serve a BT Vision box...
"Thanks for that Jarviser - In fact it only took me 2 hours to set up 1 master and 2 slave hubs - easy peasy - Regards Paul" (Paul H. by email Jan 2009)



Contributor "John Parker" on BT's "Beta" Forum. who tells me (May 08) that he now has 4 slaves and one master!
