Question about Repeaters & Transceivers
I have a wireless router/modem from AT&T Uverse. The signal is weak in the back yeard so I want to setup a repeater in the back of the house to extend te wirless network. The repeater itself is an Airlink wireless router/repeater/bridge.
I've followed the instructions, but can't get the repeater to work. When I tae my laptop to the backyard, I get no signal eventhough I'm 3 feet from the repeater.

Might it be that your problem exist because both the 2Wire HW1700 wireless modem and the D-Link DWL-G710 have their DHCP features enabled? During the setup, use static IP adds, disable the DHCP function of the HW1700, follow setup instruction/procedures of the DWL-G710.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

HI all, A couple months have passed since I posted this problem. I found my own answer after weeks of asking for help. The hawking Reg 1 repeater. Here's the answer. THE REG1 REPEATER ONLY WORKS WORKS WITH ROUTERS THAT OPERATE IN WDS MODE. Not all routers can. Check to seeif the router you are extending is capable of this mode. I tried 2 differnet routers, neither worked. Finally when I got one that spoke WDS. It worked like a dream. Why did the directions not say that!!!!!

i found the solution. first reset de DWL-G710, change the ip 192.168.0.30 to 192.168.1.253 (obiously change your IP of LAN card for 192.168.1.252 example) in the G710 go to network and in the gateway put 192.168.1.254. go to wireless Site Survey, select your 2wire net, connect, select the channel of your 2wire, select your security, write your key and apply and ready to connect :D. Later but secure :)
