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).

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

Have you first established the connection between the Router and the Extender?
If so, have you connected e.g. a laptop to the Extender?
So if your WLAN networks SSID is NETGEAR, the WLAN network of the Extender is NETGEAR_EXT and you have to connect the laptop to NETGEAR_EXT.
Then you have to open your favorit internet browser and have to type in www.mywifiext.net, which I guess is a buildin Setup-Assistant.If this doesn't work, make sure, your laptop is configured, to get an ip address automatically via DHCP.

Not able to connect the extender to my apple time capsule? no wps button. can i use this extender?


Hi, yes you will be able to use the Netgear range extender with the Apple Time Capsule, provided you configure the Time Capsule's wireless settings based from the wireless security you have setup on the Netgear router or extender. No need for WPS button. Just treat the time capsule just like another wireless laptop.
For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->> http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/wireless.html

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

My Hawking 801 is 2 years old. It has started losing its configuration. I launch the set up CD, follow the instructions, put it within range of the main wireless router and in less than 30 minutes it...


First thing you need to do is setup the IP, Subnet Mask, and Gateway of
your extender. Before any connection of the extender, we have to find out the IP of the router. Start Menu Run Type "cmd", hit enter In the black command prompt window, type "ipconfig" The ###.###.###.### to the right of default gateway is the IP of your router.
For example...192.168.1.1
Now you can either connect the extender directly to your computer or
to the router.

Use the wizard to find the extender and to change the information of your
extender to...
For example based upon the above #...
IP: 192.168.1.*** (Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1 ( The *** can be any # up to 250 except for the routers...typically we use 235.

After the wizard saves and reboots the print server, connect it back to the
router or leave it there.

Then open up your Internet Explorer and in the address bar, put in the
Address of the router in (192.168.1.235).

It should come up and ask your for the username/password (admin/1234) if it
doesn't then power cycle the device.

On the main page of the extender, fill in exactly the wireless
settings of your router here.
Make sure you fill in...
SSID Channel
Encryption

After you save, you should be able to disconnect the extender via lan cable
from the router and use it wirelessly.

Connection is intermitent. I receive signal and it works fine for 5 minutes. Then the signal continues but I do not get internet access netgear wnr1000


Do you have anything else on the network besides your computer? If you do, it may be a conflicting IP address. I was told by the Comcast tech that the WNR1000 doesn't allow additional routers on the same network. Have to upgrade to a WNR3500 for that. When I disconnected my wireless extender, it fixed the problem.

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.

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.
