Wireless Bridge

I need to configure NWA55AXE to connect as repeater with wifi bridge to router WiFi DX3301-T1 (internet access) and a local switch with PC and other devices, but I am not able to connect to any WiFi device and his SSID is not visible to wifi scanner.

May please help me?

Thanks,

Frediano

    Hi @Frediano ,

    We would like to inform you that the NWX55AXE access point and the DX3301-T1 router employ distinct mesh solutions, making them incompatible for direct mesh connection. Consequently, it is not feasible to configure the NWX55AXE as a repeater for the DX3301-T1.
    Should you wish to establish a mesh network utilizing the NWA55AXE, it is essential to use a Zyxel access point as the root in your setup.

    I have both MESH enabled but always no connection, and after Nebula registration I am not able to find how to set Repeater mode instead of AP.

    This is what I have to do:

    At moment I am working only with a room.

    If it helps, consider that I also have a pair of NWA50AXs

    Many Thanks,

    Frediano

    Hi @Frediano ,

    In your setup, one of the NWA55AXE APs, designated as the root AP, needs to be connected to the DX3301-T1 router via an Ethernet cable (wired connection). The other NWA55AXE, serving as the repeater AP, can then establish a connection to the root AP using MESH technology (wireless connection).

    For instructions on setting up a MESH between APs in Nebula, please consult the following FAQ. [Nebula] How to extend wireless coverage by configure smart mesh? — Zyxel Community

    Additionally, seamless client roaming between the DX3301-T1 router and NWA55AXE APs is possible when devices share the same SSID (Wi-Fi name) and security settings, provided there is signal overlap between them.
