Having problems with Bridged Mode / Access Points.

Answered

Hello,

The WiFi on my all-in-one PC does not support 5G and I need this connection, which is available from my Telstra MAX gateway.

HOWEVER... I have a spare Telstra Technicolor-DJA0230 modem. My intent was to connect my PC via ethernet cable to the DJA0230, which was configured in Bridge Mode.

 

I used the instructions as detailed in this old thread on Access Points...

 

https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Modems-Hardware/Technicolor-DJA0230-as-Access-Point/td-p/7867...

 

...but I was unable to get it working.

 

I HAVE 2 QUESTIONS:

1: Am I doing some fundamentally wrong with this idea of try to gain 5G from my main Telstra MAX gateway in this way?

2: Does the DJA0230 support WiFi Bridging, or is it via Ethernet cable only?

 

Failing this, I guess I would have to purchase a 5G capable USB WiFi dongle.

Help me save some money. I'm on a pension.

 

Thanks Adrian

Non of the Telstra Modems support WiFi Bridging. The Second modem has to be connected to the first by a LAN cable.
