How do I setup my wireless repeater

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.

    I have an Airlink wireless repeater. When I set it up with my ATT wireless router it connects to the router, and computers see the local network, but it does not seem to pass through internet traffic.

Hi,

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.

SOURCE: My laptop can't find the SSID

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 :)

Netgear wn2000 states mover closer to router?


This message means your extender is too far away from your wireless router to make a good connection. Repeaters must be within a good signal range for the connection to work properly.

If you have a wifi enabled phone, tablet, or laptop, you can walk around your home and see where the signal reaches and how well. Repeaters should be placed where you still receive full or close to full signal.

Repeaters may have issues if the wireless router is on another floor, behind metal, or too far away.

I configured my WE54g as instructed for a secure network. I have AT&T Uverse with a 3800 RG router. when I plug the WRE54G in. my other wireless devices quit working


If there is an option to change the channel the expander is using, try changing it by 5.
So if its on channel 1, change it to 6 and so on.

Link Light red activity light blue. Tried to reset and use the auto configuration button but nothing is working.


Hello, It sounds like the repeater is not within range of the wireless router or access point. The repeater does not act as a wireless router by itself, but rather like extra antenna/signal booster, so you still need to have a wireless router within range. The router must also be using a router that is 802.11B/G compatible, or else the repeater might not be able to receive that frequency signal in order to boost it (should work with N also, but not quite sure if it has to be set to Standard Channel due to how N works. We are working on wireless frequencies in my course now, so I can contact my instructor, and get back to on that). If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or simply reply.

I got a wireless network connection home but the modem and router are both upstairs while my ps3 is downstairs. i bought wireless-g range expander model no. wre54g in order to expand my wireless network...


Hello
This not a big deal for a wireless network to work on downstairs, you need to check your connection and settings of the routers/computers. or just put a repeater for improvement of signal strength.
If the matter is signal strength, for the purpose see the TIP link below

My HWREN1 stopped working


I have found that the HWREN1 does not to auto channel. The E2000 Cisco router that I have came on "auto" channel selection which means that it will try to change channels to get the best signal. I set the router specifically to channel 5 (no one in the area was on it) and then had to set the HWREN1 by hand as well. Since then, I have had no further problems.

Problem: channel selection on router was "auto", changed now and then. HWREN1 does not appear to follow channel changes.

Solution: Set both to channel 5 manually.

I have sat. internet at my home, which is 500 to 600 feet from my business. How do I get a better signal to my business. Right now, I get about 15% outside the building, which by the way is a metal...


I use Netgear dg834g and linksys wireless-G routers (blue and black) or modem/routers as these give the best signals ove long distances.

Also the edimax usb dongle has incredible connections for me over long distance
