Question about Hawking HWREG1 Repeater

Extender reboots my Netgear router

I setup the extender with an IP that doesn't conflict with the main router (a Netgear DG834GT).
I have MAC address filtering setup; the extender has permission to access the Netgear, and vice-versa, yet when I eventually save all the settings, my PC's can connect to the Hawking, BUT and this is the major problem - as soon as I enable these settings on the Hawking it causes my router to reboot repeatedly as if there's a conflict.

I can't see why. The IP addresses are different, both have access to each other MAC address wise, same subnet. Any ideas - please help!

I would start with stripping ALL security and encryption settings, see if they work with basic IP addressing setup. Verify that the subnet address ranges are the same and that that the same IP schema is used (IPv4 vs IPv6) on both devices. Then make sure that the security settings are complementary to each other and not in conflict (opposite or identical). Then add the pair to the existing network and check antenna connections.

An alternative suggestion would be to install a Yagi type antenna on the Netgear DG834GT. This will give you a very long and useful range. A Yagi antenna can be made rather inexpensively using a coffee can (Google "coffee can Yagi antenna", I suggest the entry from iHacked.com, this gives a good lesson on the antenna and basic concepts).

Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.

Ip conflict after setting up dwl-g710, after setting up the extender i cannot access it because my pc reports an ip conflict, any suggestions would be appreaciated


Hi,

You will get an IP conflict if you have assigned the same IP address on your network devices. Every networking devices should have different network address or IP address. If for example the IP address of your router is 192.168.0.1, then your wireless expander can be configured as 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 and so on but not 192.168.0.1 since it is already being used by the router.

Setting up my DWLG710 EXTENDER


You need to give IP add manually to any of ur PC as 192.168.0.31 and than open DWLG setup page on the browser by typing 192.168.0.30. It will bring the setuup page of Extender.. on this page change the IP add from 192.168.0.30 to 192.168.2.50.. it will restart ur extender and make it working in same network... roll back the changes u made to ur PC to connect..

No internet connection via DWL-G710


Your extender may not be able to talk to the router. Make sure you have set default gateway in extender to IP of the router. Turn off encryption first. Check the router if extender shows up in active client list or active mac address list.

The problem might be that you have good connection to the router but having connection trouble between your router and the internet.
Try accessing your router by typing your Gateway into the address field of the web browser of your choice.
Then click on WAN (Wide Area Network) and check your external IP Address. Beside it you will find a button that says "Renew".
The loss of connection might be the result of poor router configuration, bad cable connection or ISP (Internet Service Provider) connectivity trouble.

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.

the IP address must be different on the router & extender but use the same subnet mast. The extender has to have the gateway set as the IP address on the router.
