Question about Hawking HWREG1 Repeater
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).
