Tip

Configuring WRE54G to a wireless router


Before you start configuring the WRE54G you need to consider the following factors:

1. Make sure that there are no wireless security enabled on the router like WEP and wireless MAC filtering. If you have them enabled try to disable them first. Check if there is a wireless computer that is currently working on your network.
2. Make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled.
3. Then Hit the Automatic Configuration button on the WRE54G for about 3-5 secs.

The wireless computer should be connected to the SSID of the Range expander.
The range expander doesn’t have any DHCP server. The IP address that will be assigned to the computer will be 0.0.0.0 or the Auto-configuration IP 169.254.xxx.xxx.
Assign a static IP address on the wireless card. IP address should be 192.168.1.5, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1
To assign static IP address on your machine you follow the steps below:
Windows 9 xs and ME:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1 then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000
Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Network Connection that you are using > Properties > Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following IP address:
IP Address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Then click ok all the way out.
Try to ping the Range expander. Go to start and then run type CMD for Win XP/2000, COMMAND for Win ME and below. On the black screen that will pop-up type PING 192.168.1.240 (Default IP address of the Range expander.
If the ping test was successful then you can access the setup page of the Range expander. If not, try to reset the Range expander for 10 seconds and then power cycle it.
To reset the range expander, follow the steps below:
Hold down the reset button for 10 seconds then unplug power while holding down reset...plug it back in after 5 seconds then wait for 10 more seconds before releasing the reset button.
To access the setup page of the expander, Open your Internet Explorer and please go to http://192.168.1.240
If will prompt a username and password box, leave the username blank password is admin.
On the setup screen of the expander, you can set the same exact settings on your router. SSID, Channel, WEP settings should be the same on the router and you need to specify the WLAN MAC Address of your router to the space provided for the WLAN MAC address on the setup page of the Range Expander.
Once you applied the settings, the lights on the expander should be both blue.
You can now set your IP address back to obtain an IP automatically and Obtain DNS address automatically.
Range expander should be working after performing the troubleshooting steps above.

If you have an Ethernet port on the WRE54G, try to connect the range expander directly to your computer with static IP address then ping the WRE54G. Make sure that you are not running any firewall and Internet security in your computer. If you were able to ping the 192.168.1.240 try to access it through the Internet Explorer and configure it from the there. Follow the steps that I gave to you to configure the wireless settings of the range expander.

Make sure that you have checked all the wireless security settings on your router. Make sure that you have those disabled. Try to set static IP address in your computer and try to ping the 192.168.1.240 and see if you can get a reply.

To set static IP follow the steps below:

Windows 9x and ME:
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
>>>Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address: 192.168.1.10
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
>>>Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1 then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000
Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Network Connection that you are using > Properties > Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following IP address:
IP Address: 192.168.1.10
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Then Hit Ok All the way out.

Can't connect to HWREG1 with mac


The Hawking Unit uses http://192.168.1.250 as the default IP, the user name: admin and no password. This should work on any platform.

Extender reboots my Netgear router


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).

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.

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!!!!!
