Hi,
I tried to extend my Airtel WIFI range as per google search, so here is the setup.
primary modem Airtel provided D-Link 224 VDSL (192.168.1.1), LAN to LAN cat 5 cable to secondary D Link 224 or D Link 2730U modem as WIFI extender.
disabled DHCP server on secondary modem and assigned 192.168.1.2 then disabled IGMP option.
Internet connected at half speed of primary modem
.
Speed test results
Primary modem = download: 80Mbps upload: 10Mbps
Secondary modem (WIFI extender) = download: 40Mbps upload: 1.5 or 4Mbps sometime.

tried the same on both modems such D Link 224 to D Link 224 and D Link 224 to D Link 2730U.
same half speed is reaching.

I myself crimped RJ45 jack with 568B color code for 28 meters cat 5 cable.

Any clue on what went wrong ?

Thanks guys
