Question about Computers & Internet
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.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

You may need to add the PS3 MAC
address to the router's list of allowable MAC addresses:
1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the router. This is usually done by typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS or similar
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

Hey I was given a high speed Bell Sympatico interent system and I even had 7 different modems installed in one year and even including 2 new 2wire modems..
Firstly all of the problems were firstly related to the fact there was no Bell high speed cable actually in my area, even though i had paid for a high speed interent service for years too.
and the problmes were next directly also to the mostly pretentious, incompetent Bell technicians.
Do first use an interent speed test site to verify your actual supplied interent speeds and do always tell the ISP that you want real high speeds and real service from them rightfully ..
FINALLY THEY BELL SYMPATICO WOULD CORRECT THEIR SYSTEM PROBLEMS , AND FINALLY GAVE ME EVEN A FIBER OPTIC CABLE CONNECTION TOO, AND IT WOULD RUN GOOD FOR 3 WEEKS next till another fool, a Bell technican make some other LINE changes and my system became slow, problemed,
THUS SO MANY TIMES now I had discovered firsthand what the right hand of BELL,ca giveth the left hand can take away.. for it seems everytime they the techs do make new line changes my own ISP address next would change AS A RESULT too and lead to some of the new problems...
So I again called Bell tech and they next tend to do a ping and do something else and so for another short period their interent system would work till... the other hand had taken it away..
Continue to give them the techs hell for they deserve it and tend not to tell the truth as to what the real problems are.
If you have a 2 wire modem you do not need firewall software too and you can turn it off.

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!!!!!
