Problems configuring WL-130 Wireless Extender

Hi,
I'm having difficulty setting up my Sitecom WL-130 Extender.
What I've done is as follows:
1. Changed IP address of Extender to be on same subnetwork as my Router. Extender's IP address is 192.168.1.253.
2. Logged into Extender's configuration page using this address and searched for my unsecured Router in the Repeater page.
3. Router was found and the SSID and the Channel Number are updated on the Extender's Configuration page with the Router's SSID and Channel Number. ESSID remains at SitecomAP.
4. Set Security on the Advanced tab to Disabled.
5. Placed my Repeater in a vantage point where there is a good signal from the Router.
However, I'm not experiencing any improvement in connection strength from the Repeater whether it's switched on or not.
Where might I be going wrong?
Thanks

    Can you just clarify this please....what should this IP address correspond to?

  • davjoyce Nov 12, 2008

    OK, thanks, these recommendations you make are on the Router, is there anything that you're recommend checking on the Repeater?
    (I'll try these later when I'm at home again)


  • davjoyce Nov 13, 2008

    OK, I've got this to work.
    The configuration above is fine. What I didn't realize is that I need to connect to the SSID/ESSID of the Repeater as opposed to the Router.

Sitecom WL-330 range extender with dlink dir-615- unable to use


I am guessing you have XP or vista. here are the instructions for both.
XP 1. Click ‘Start’ button (it should be located at lower-left corner of your computer), then click control panel. Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections icon, double click Local Area Connection, and Local Area Connection Properties window will appear. Select ‘Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)’, then click ‘Properties’ 2. Select ‘Use the following IP address’, then input the following settings in respective field: IP address: 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Click ‘OK’ when finish.
Vista 1. Click the ‘Start’ button (it should be located at lower-left corner of your computer), then click control panel. Click View Network Status and Tasks, then click Manage Network Connections. Right-click Local Area Network, then select ‘Properties’. The Local Area Connection Properties window will appear, select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP / IPv4)’, and then click ‘Properties’ 2. Select ‘Use the following IP address’, then input the following settings in respective field: IP address: 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Click ‘OK’ when finish.
Next step for both All functions and settings of this access point must be configured via the web management interface. Please start your web browser, and input ‘192.168.0.234’ in the address bar, and press the ‘Enter’ key. The following dialog should be shown: Please input user name and password in the field respectively. The default user name is ‘admin’, and the default password is ‘admin’. Press the ‘OK’ button to see the web management interface of this access point: NOTE: If you can’t see the web management interface, and you’re being prompted to input user name and password again, it means you didn’t input username and password correctly. Please retype user name and password again. After you connected to the access point by web browser, the first thing you see is ‘Status and Information’ page. All system and network related information of this access point will be displayed here. The information is very helpful when you want to know the detailed information of your access point, and when you try to fix the communication problem between this access point and other wired / wireless computer / devices. You can click ‘Home’ on the left, This access point can be operated in different modes; you can click ‘Basic Setting’ to select an operating mode you want to meet for different needs: You can click ‘Mode’ dropdown menu to select operating mode, and there are 3 operating modes available: AP Access point mode, allows wireless clients to connect to access point and exchange data with the devices connected to the wired network. Station- Infrastructure Enable the Ethernet device such us TV and Game player connected to the access point to a wireless client. Universal Repeater This product can act as a wireless range extender that will help you to extend the networking wirelessly. The access point can act as Station and AP at the same time. It can use Station function to connect to a Root AP and use AP function to service all wireless clients within its coverage. You can hopefully figure it out from there.

Wireless extender


OK.
It's pretty easy:
1) turn on both devices
2) connect to sitecom device.
- you may have to manually set your IP address. (from network resources control panel, TCP/IP tab. Check the istructions, cause you have to choose an address in the same subnet of the sitecom range extender. I mean, the first three numbers must be the same, and the last number of the address must be different, between 3 and 255).
- now you can type the sitecom address into the address bar of your browser (allow pop ups from that address!). The defaut user name is admin, as well the default password.
3) Ok, now you're connected and you just have to set this way in the basic settings:
working mode: universal repeater
now click on site survey and remember the ssid of your main network, and the channel number.
channel: type the channel number of your network (IT MAY CHANGE WHEN YOU TURN OFF\ON THE ROUTER!! so you'll have to change it maybe every day..... **** sitecom device, I HATE IT)
ssid: the ssid of your main network.
4) click apply.
Of course if your WLAN is protected you must set the rigth password and encription algorithm...

Now it should work.. but remember, everyday you will have to change the channel, and sometimes ou will have to reset it, from he toolbo tab.

IT,S BETTER NOT TO BUY THIS DEVICE, cause even the latest firmware is not working properly.

Problem with sitecom wl-130 connection


I think I have the solution: you have to click on the basic settings tab, then n "site survey" button, then (optional) on "refresh" button.
Now you will get the information about your network, and you just have to check the channel number of the signal from your main router. then you have to set that channel in the "channel" button of the basic settings tab. You also have to choose Universal repeater as working mode of the sitecom device, instead of Access Point.
Hope it helps.
By the way, all these settings should be automatic in such a device.... But this sitecom range extender is ****.
I suggest everybody is reading: DON,T BUY THIS ITEM!!!! Spend 10 bucks more and get a working one!!!

Compatibility with Sitecom wl 031


This 10dBi omni directional antenna enables you to very easily extend the range of your wireless network. By linking the Omni Antenna to your wireless router, you gain the benefits of an optimum wireless signal while minimising the number of ‘dead spots’ (points in your home where the signal is either weak or lost).
However it does not fit the following types of routers,modems and accespoints:
WL-143
WL-122v2
WL-114/WL-517
WL-114v2
WL-108/WL109
WL-111
WL-106
WL-025
WL-018v2
These antenne's will also fit other brands of wireless products that use an SMA connector

Having Problem Acquiring IP Address


when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 19.168.0.240. Hope that helps.
