SOURCE: connect wag200g to wap54g wireless


I am sorry to say this but the accesspoint WAP54G's capability as a wireless repeater can only be used with a WRT54G, WRT54GS and another WAP54G.

That means it will not work as a wireless repeater for the WAG200G gateway. If you need a wireless repeater, you can use a WRE54G. This is a Linksys wireless repeater and is compatible for all wireless AP's.

If you have any other questions, you can ask me and I'll help you.

What I would recommend, would be to give the router a factory reset. To do so, you'll need a paper clip first. On the back of the router, you should see a pinhole-sized rubber nub of a button labeled reset. To reset, unplug the router from power, then press and hold that little reset button in, and plug the router back into power (you might have to do some nifty acrobatics for this one, or get a friend to give you a hand). Keep holding the reset button in for about 20 seconds, and let go. If I recall, you probably won't see any real indication on the router itself that it worked, however, you should be able to log back into the router manually, and set your connections back up again, in the event that the settings may have become corrupted somehow. If this doesn't work though, then there may be further problems, in which case, you may need to get onto Linksys' website, and download the most recent firmware for your model of router, and then try setting it up again. If that doesn't work, then the router may be experiencing some kind of hardware failure, in which case, if you are within the manufacturer's warranty, contact Linksys for repair or replacement (or through your place of purchase). If you are not within warranty, then buying a new replacement router may be your only other option. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: After replacing Cable Modem, D-Link DI-524 Wireless will not work

Hi Serina - first of all: what a great post! Very detailed and professional. I just have to say that, since I'm reading here lots of "interesting" questions sometimes.

To your problem:
Apparenatly the router does the "routing" part well, since you can access the internet via cable. The problem is the wireless access point.
Your IP output looks actually good - I can't see any problems with the values. What I would try to do is to disable IPv6, since it is only used on your internal LAN and not yet implemented on the WAN side. This page (link) has a good write-up on the how-to. Don't do the registry part - just disable it in the Properties window.

I had noticed conflicts on computers where IPv4 and v6 were installed simultaniously.

Try it and see if that corrects the problem. If it does not, please let me know.If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Check CNET Samsung forum. There are several posts with the same problem. A couple solutions and basic confirmation that Samsungs newest fireware is bad. I wish their support helpdesk would realize that instead of telling me to contact my router support.

How do you Hook up a samsung ht-bd 1250 to a net gear wnc2001wireless router

In case you want to RTFM:
If you are connecting a cable from the player to one of the LAN ports on the back of your router, then you shouldn't have to do any configuration.

If you're connecting wirelessly, then you'll need a Samsung wireless adapter. Your model doesn't have internal wireless, and it won't take any other wireless adapter but the Samsung WIS09ABGN adapter. It also looks like there is only one USB port, so if you plug in the wireless adapter, you won't be able to plug in USB storage devices.

Our Samsung Blu-Ray player had some trouble connecting, and what I discovered is that it couldn't deal with a network SSID that contained anything but letters, and couldn't deal with a network security (WEP/WPA) key code/password that had anything but numbers and letters. A good WPA key should have at least one special character (punctuaion, &, etc.), but you might have to simplify the key for your Samsung.

So here are some steps to connect wirelessly:
1) Write down your router's SSID, which might also be called "network ID" or "wireless network" or something similar. (If you don't know this, you can log into your router to see it, or check to see what wireless network your computer is connected to; the name of that network is the SSID.
2) Write down the WPA key to your network. If you don't know it, you'll have log in to your router and look on the "security" or "wireless security" tab. It might be called "WEP key" or "WPA passkey" or "network password" or whatever.
3) Check both of those for hypens, ampersands, etc. If there is a special character in either the SSID or key, you'll have to log in to your router to change it.

Once your SSID and key have only numbers and letters, you're ready for a manual install.
It's a bunch of steps, and here they are from the manual:

How can I connect my hisense tv to wifi? it wont show my wifi name in security mode. when I scan it says no ap?

Either your router is not set up to broadcast the SSID(network name),the router is too far away from the TV, or there is a problem with the wireless on the TV.

If you can see the SSID from the same location with your phone/tablet/etc then it is probably an issue with the TV. You can also check for a firmware update for both the TV and the router.

I was trying to conect but got message on screen unable to conect

Check your wireless router, it may need to be re-powered. Also, your network may need more info of your BD. Has it worked before or is this the first time you tried to connect?

I have bought linksys wag200g **** its not working properly when i use wifi on my mobile.... and device disconnected after every 1 or 2 minutes.. i have ADSL connection......

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Do I need a specific type of wireless router to communicate with the wireless adapter on my samsung tv?

Not at all, in even the early 3d models, you can connect from any wireless router as long as you know the ssid signal and the password, your good... the connection settings-in the Samsung are very easy and detailed, connection should be very easy.
