WiFi extenders

My current home set-up has 6 computers on a local network. 3 are hard wired to the main BT hub 6 router, 3 login to it via a WiFi connection. The Wifi computers are located in a garden room which is a rear annexe to the house, and where they regularly lost internet connection.

I've cured that by buying a Netgear N300 WiFi extender, which has doubled the signal strength. So far so good. But I have now lost contact with the 3 remote computers in Teamviiewer.

Effectively the extender sets itself up as a sub-router off the main house router., and provides a separate internet for the 3 ouside computers to log into via WEP. The control computer in the house is still on the main router network.

What do I need to configure in Teamviewer to see al 6 computers again?

Re: WiFi extenders

It appears that what you need is patience! This morning all three external computers are showing and accessible.

Obviously WiFi networks and extenders need time to see each other and inform Teamviewer accordingly.

I can now thoroughly recommend the Netgear N300 extender.
