Yes, sorry, you're right. It does say "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. When I try to resolve the problem it doesn't work unless I then go into the range of the HomeHub.
Save yourself a lot of pain, ( head vs wall ), and time... and buy a couple of powerline adapters, they work far better, and take 30 secs to set up..
These seem like my next port of call if I can't get this to work. Just wouldn't like to buy something if the stuff I already have might do the job
Is there not a mis-understanding here in the terms:
Wireless Bridge - using 2 WiFi devices to link up a 2 physical networks (point to point) - I don't think many entry level WiFi routers/access points will do multi point bridging.
Access Point - a multi point connection for WiFi devices to connect to a 'network'
Yes, access point sounds like what I want as I just want to connect to one wireless network.
but what you want is for the belkin to talk to the bt home hub, and then retransmit the signal itself to your outbuilding ?
This isnt really an access point AP, its a combination of a wireless bridge, ( that receives from the homehub ), and then an access point, ( that transmits to the outbuilding ).
Some 'access points'/routers claim to do this, but I've never successfully managed to get one working, ( serious head-wall action ).
The only way I've ever got this working was to use one unit as the bridge, and another seperate one as the AP, and then connect them to each other by an ethernet cable.
The homeplug solution, ( the ones suggested above work fine, I use that model them for streaming video/music/data around the house ), is going to be your best solution I'm afraid.
