Trouble with wireless connection

Hi I have a person visiting from Finland with an ASUS F5 notebook. It has a wireless network interface but it does not see the wireless network of my ADSL router / modem (I am in South Africa). I have an acer notebook which can see this network with no problem. Any suggestions. Thanks Dave Horn

Wireless router is not connecting to pc even via network cable, all lights are on except 'internet' light.


Absence of an internet connection suggests a missed step in the set up process. (Apologies if you have tried this) the ASUS manual has a very good diagram to help with this

How to use ENHWI-N3 / ENHWI-N34D / ENHWI-2AN3 / ENHWI-2AN34D / ENHWI-3GN3 as a Repeater?


  • For Advance Users, you can download this document.
  • The reason why people use a Encore wireless repeater is because some wireless remote client computers are out of range from the main network's access point (wireless router), or the wireless client is in the dead spot or the device you want to share to the network have no wireless interface card.

    The function of a wireless repeater is basically to extend the wireless signal coverage. Wireless repeater does not authenticate, screen, secure, connect to the internet, give IP address to clients, broadcast names, etc., these are the wireless router's job. Repeater only repeats what the main wireless router does to the wireless clients.

    Checklist:

    • You should know the wireless security type of the existing wireless AP/router, is it a WPA, WPA2 or a WEP?
    • The wireless security key, or password or passphrase of the existing wireless router
    • Your existing wireless router's SSID
    • We recommend that the existing network you are about to add the Repeater on have a DHCP server running and able to lease IP address to all network clients. If you are not sure about this, please ask your ISP or the person who installed your network.

    Hardware Checklist:

    • Computer with wireless device turned off. This is only to set up the repeater, once finished the wireless can be turned on again.
    • The computer must have an available RJ-45 network interface card and web browser installed.
    • A working wireless router or Access Point with one available RJ45 port
    • RJ-45 UTP/TP Ethernet LAN Cable
    • The Encore Router is set to factory default. If your Encore Router is brand new and just pulled out of the box, no need to reset. If changes were made to any settings to the Encore Router before, make sure you "hardware reset" the Encore Router to the factory default settings. Check the User's Manual on how to "hardware reset" the router.

    PROCEDURES:
    1. Hooking up hardware connections:

    1. Both PC or Laptop and the Encore Router should be turned-on.
    2. Disable the wireless client from your PC or laptop computer (if not done so)
    3. Connect the Ethernet cable to the PC or laptop computer and the Encore Router. (This can be done while PC computer and router are turned on.)
    2. Switching mode from AP Mode to Repeater Mode
    1. Using your computer's web browser such as Internet Explorer or Safari Firefox, enter 192.168.0.1 to the address field then hit enter. You should see the Encore Router's User Interface screen still in the AP Router Mode
    2. On the upper right corner of the user interface menu, click on the drop down menu and select "Repeater Mode". Click the "OK" button to the warning box. Wait around 35 seconds until your screen comes back to Encore user interface screen, this time the screen is now in the Repeater Mode. If for some reason you were asked by the repeater to enter the username and password, enter the default username and password (admin/admin) and your Encore Router is now in Repeater Mode.

    NOTE:
    As of this moment your repeater is not connected to any router or network. It has to be configured further to be able to be connected to your current network and access point router.
    3. Connecting your Repeater to your existing network access point or router:

    1. As soon as the Encore Router switched to the Repeater Mode, you should be able to see the same Utility Screen with fewer selections on the left pane.
    2. From the Main Menu screen click on "Wireless" located on the left pane.
    3. Click on "Site Survey" button, a new Window dialogue box will pop up showing a list of Access Points reachable by your Repeater
    4. Check your existing network's access point SSID then click on the radio button that corresponds to your access point router then click "Connect" button.(If you can't find your existing AP router, click on "Refresh" repeatedly until your access point show up, or your location is too far from your existing AP router).
    5. Click on the "Encryption" drop down menu, select your existing access point wireless security, enter your existing router's wireless security key or passphrase then click "Apply". If you get a FAILED message, repeat this procedure again, a wireless hiccup might be interfering, otherwise you now have a working Repeater.
    6. Check your repeater connection by going to your internet browser and open a web page of your choice. If successful your new wireless repeater is working.
    7. Disconnect the Ethernet cable and setup your computer back to its original wireless settings. At this stage, the Repeater is now invisible to any wireless client computers. When connecting a new wireless client within the repeater's wireless range the process is the same as there is no Repeater device at all, the SSID of the wireless router will just be extended in range around where the Repeater is physically located.
    4. Connect your remote wireless client to your wireless router
    1. Using your wireless client utility program, look for your existing router's SSID and connects to it, if this is a new client you will be prompted with the wireless security key. Your repeater is invisible to all wireless clients. All it does is to repeat the wireless router signal as it is to extend its range. Once you have converted the Encore Router to Repeater and successfully connected to your existing router there will be no more configuration needed to the repeater. If you happen to see two identical SSID's of your existing router, this means your wireless client is within the same range of your existing router and the new wireless repeater, then your client don't need the repeater's service.

    NOTE:
    If you are using Windows 7 and your existing access point security wireless is set to WPA2 (AES), make sure your Windows 7 wireless security type properties is set to WPA2-Personal. To check go to Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection, look for your REPEATER router, right-click on it then click Properties, check the settings in the "Security" tab.>

    NOTE:
    When checking the wireless site survey, you may see two routers with the same SSID (names), these are your Access Point and the REPEATER tied together. This also means you are within the reachable range of both Access point and REPEATER.
    5. To check the Repeaters user interface

    At this moment, the Repeater is invisible to any client. The client's IP address is drawn from the DHCP server most likely to be also your wireless router. Therefore the IP address of the repeater is also invisible to the clients. Follow steps below:

    1. Disable wireless connection or turn off wireless in the client PC computer
    2. Connect Ethernet network cable to the RJ-45 port of the client PC computer
    3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports of the repeater.
    4. From your computer, set the network card IP address to Static IP Address entering 192.168.0.102, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, leave the rest as blank.
    5. Open IE or Internet explorer or any other web browser software and run 192.168.0.1, you should be able to see the Encore Repeater user interface screen. (Changing any settings in the repeater may affect its performance)
    That should help :)

    How do I connect to wifi from a Asus eee pc 900??


    Here's How:
    1. Find the wireless network icon on your computer (on Windows, you'll find an icon that looks like 2 computers in your taskbar on the bottom right; Macs will have a wireless symbol in the top right).
    2. View available wi-fi networks by either right-clicking the icon and selecting "View Available Wireless Networks" (Windows XP) or left-clicking the icon and selecting to "Connect or disconnect..." (Windows Vista). On Mac OS X and Windows 7, all you have to do is click on the wi-fi icon to see the list of available networks.
    3. Choose the network to connect to by clicking the "Connect" button (or just selecting it on Win7/Mac).
    4. Enter the security key -- if the wireless network is encrypted (with WEP, WPA or WPA2), you'll be prompted to enter the network password or passphrase. This will be stored for you for next time, so you'll only have to enter it once.
    5. On Windows 7, select the type of network this is -- Windows 7 automatically sets up security for different network location types (Home, Work, or Public).
    6. Start browsing or sharing! You should now be connected to the wi-fi network; open your browser and visit a website to confirm.

    The wap54G is having issues. Computers trying to connect to it keep acquiring ip address and never connecting. Any advice on what might be wrong?


    Hi williamrayes,

    If you have a message that acquiring ip address you can Power Cycle the router for 2 minutes then try to connect again or you can try to check if the Network Key that your typing is correct (If the connection is secured). You can check the Network Key of your router by accessing the Wireless Settings Page of your router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security, You can personalize the Network Key if your want. Save the settings then try to connect.

    Rate me if this helps so I can help others.

    Thanks for using Fixya.

    Can connect to internet through modem but not through wifi


    If thats the case I will assume these things:
    - You are seeing the wireless router when you are trying to connect but it still wont let you connect.
    OR
    - You are NOT seeing the wireless router and want to connect to it.

    What you will have to do it go back into the router (hard wired into it) and start over. Make sure you access the wireless setting and ensure the settings are compatible with your wireless laptop. If your laptop is very new then the setting at the bottom will work if your laptop is older then the options like WEP/WAP Personal setting will do. Make sure you write down the settings you used for refrence later.

    When you rename the device, wirite it down too!


    Ensure you "Apply" all the settings and "Logout."

    When you are done, go to "Start," "Control Panel," "Network and Sharing Center," "Set-up a connection or network," "Manually connect to a wireless network," and enter all the information you wrote down!

    Let me know if there is anything else you need help with!

    ASUS you have set the wrong dynamic or static ip address I am using a Mac OSX, Mountain Lion. The remainder of this question is mostly copied from a review of this product on Amazon, since it succinctly states the difficulty I am having. The main reason I was interested in this specific device (compared to cheaper alternatives) was the advertised "Wifi acocunt sharing", where it claims it can wirelessly connect to a wifi access point and then share this to all your devices (hotspot). The idea being that you only need to login or pay once to connect multiple devices to one of those pay-wifis. This was the only reason to pay the premium fee charged for this device. However, the feature simply doesn't work. It will connect to a specified wifi AP and will create a wifi network allowing your devices to connect, but it will never receive an IP address from the AP it's connected to (even though it has a DHCP server running and it works perfectly on a PC). The "Connection Doctor" that tries to diagnose problems will simply say "You may have set the wrong dynamic or static IP address . . .", going into settings it is then not actually possible to set a static IP address since the buttons to turn off "get ip/dns automatically" are grayed out. Also given that it's set to automatic, it's clear that the IP address was not misset as it should receive it via DHCP. Even after upgrading to the latest firmware (1.0.2.1), this feature does not work. I've also tried it at multiple locations, yet it refuses to work.
