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

I also put in static LAN IP addresses and these help with connection

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.

Diffrent between Dynamic&static ip address


Static IP address is usually a single IP address provided by the ISP to you, which can be configured so that you can run a web server (host web sites etc), or access your home computer from any where in the world ( your computer and internet should be on ).

Dynamic IP address is usually IP address provided by the ISP to your DSL modem / computer (for dialup modems) for that internet session, next day or next time you connect the IP address will be a different one. (usually home internet connections are Dynamic IP based.

In a typical home environment if you have one wireless adaptor and planning for a wireless repeater its better to configure dynamic IP address in the repeater (so that you repeater will acquire IP address from the wireless adaptor)

Signal remains low but speed slightly increases when light are double blue lite


The top light should be blue if set up correctly and the bottom light should blink blue because it is an activity light. Sounds like you are just having a signal strength issue and you may be able to find a better location to improve reception.

Would I be able to connect up to 10 eternet switches every 300ft to extend internet signal


For what purpose? Why would you require the distance?

Rather than using a switch which will slow down your network traffic, you could just use a signal repeater. Better yet, why not just use fiber between your 2 locations?

Let me give you a clarification of what the MAX length really is:

The max length from switch to node is 100 meters. This 100 meter length, however, includes the vertical drops and all passive connections such as the patch cables from the switch to the patch panel and the patch cables from the jacks to the computers (or other types of nodes).

If you need to connect 2 specific servers located at different buildings another option that you have would be to create a Secure VPN link between the two using the Internet. Companies do it everyday and quite safely. I would recommend that if this is the route you take, make sure to include in your network design a hardware firewall and NAT based router using ACL's to control any unauthorized traffic or connections to either location at BOTH locations.

Hope that this information helps you out.

Problem with sitecom wl-130 connection


I think I have the solution: you have to click on the basic settings tab, then n "site survey" button, then (optional) on "refresh" button.
Now you will get the information about your network, and you just have to check the channel number of the signal from your main router. then you have to set that channel in the "channel" button of the basic settings tab. You also have to choose Universal repeater as working mode of the sitecom device, instead of Access Point.
Hope it helps.
By the way, all these settings should be automatic in such a device.... But this sitecom range extender is ****.
I suggest everybody is reading: DON,T BUY THIS ITEM!!!! Spend 10 bucks more and get a working one!!!

Wireless G ranges expander


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 192.168.0.240. once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.
