Guide for setting up a router
All common router models should work. Nevertheless, we recommend the TP-Link WR940N as a good and inexpensive model. However, we can only provide limited help for other routers.
Important! The transmission power of the router should be reduced so that every dorm resident can enjoy the benefits of private WLAN without mutual interference.
For the TP-Link WR940N you can do this under Wireless > Wireless Advanced by setting the Transmit Power to Low.
For advanced users
- You can configure your router as Access Point to benefit from IPv6.
- If you are allready using OpenWRT: Dump-AP
- You can also run the mentioned TP-Link WR940N with OpenWRT and benefit from better firmware.
- You want to use a RaspberryPi as access point? Then we recommend the offical instructions of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
