WiFi USB dongle (WiFi USB LAN Card) as the WAN for the WiFi Router

What is it? Why should I have a WiFi USB dongle (WiFi USB LAN Card) as the WAN of the Router?

Normally router has the RJ45 ports, there is one marked as WAN. In the router mode, the IP address three octets are different with other LAN devices. Like WAN is 192.168.1.x, LAN is 192.168.111.x. The WAN(RJ45 port) normally is linked with switch or the other router’s LAN port. Our setting is make a WiFi USB dongle linked with WiFi Router’s USB port as a WAN linking. To avoid the radio frequency interference, the channel of the WiFi USB dongle is always different with the WiFi router.

The application is you can use a high gain WiFi USB dongle (AWUHN2405, Top Catcher, Megabond) to get the WiFi internet linking from WISP’s base station far away like 5km. Those dongles can mount in outdoor or on glass to get the signal from outside. The WiFi USB dongle’s USB cable can be 10 or even 20Meters long. The WiFi Router can broadcast the signal easily in the area we want, like dome or inner room.

Before is using a WiFi CPE to get the signal and use the CAT5 cable to link with the WiFi router. Now we replace WiFi CPE with WiFi USB dongle. Not only the cost also the application, could be the repeater easily

    • That’s what Belkin’s do-shut down. I had a Belkin N for about a month and in that time I had to unplug it & hard rratset about 15-20 times. Belkin is crap. Never buy it-you’ll be sorry. I returned it & bought the Airport Express base station. Had the base station for about 2 years now and had to manually rratset it ONCE.

  1. We would like to thank you all over again for the beautiful ideas you offered Jesse when preparing a post-graduate research in addition to, most importantly, with regard to providing each of the ideas in a single blog post. If we had known of your blog a year ago, we would have been kept from the needless measures we were selecting. Thank you very much.

    • Assuming you have a laotpp/PC with a wifi card: Confiqure your laotpp to share its usb dongle internet connection using your wireless network connection for windows XP this is in done in network connections from the control panel, right click on your internet connection and click properties, Advanced tab, and tick internet connection sharing . other versions of windows will be similar but not sure of other operating systems.Its possible that then you can connect the wii to your laotpp/PC and make use of its internet connection. worth a try for a zero cost solution.VA:F [1.9.12_1141](from 0 votes)

    • You have two options:1) buy a wlieress router. I bought one new for about $ 30.002) buy enough cable to connect the wired router to the Wii, then pay $ 25.00 for the adapter to connect it to the Wii. By the time you buy a cable and adapter, which limits the location of the console, you could purchase a wlieress router and still move the Wii to any television in range.I suggest a wlieress router, and connecting the Wii to the net is definitely worth it.VA:F [1.9.12_1141](from 0 votes)

  2. Good video, one remark othugh Hiding your network is not enough. True that it seems invisble, but there are utilities that show your SSID name of your network anyway (for example WiFi tracker utility on the iPhone). I recommend using WPA2 protection.

  7. Ola! Admin,
    Thanks you for your post, I have several usb dongles that pick up A/B/G but I was wondering if there was a way to make them broadcast a lan signal instead of picking up on one.
    Keep up the good work
