Tips for a great answer:
The reason why people use a Encore wireless repeater is because some wireless remote client computers are out of range from the main network's access point (wireless router), or the wireless client is in the dead spot or the device you want to share to the network have no wireless interface card.
The function of a wireless repeater is basically to extend the wireless signal coverage. Wireless repeater does not authenticate, screen, secure, connect to the internet, give IP address to clients, broadcast names, etc., these are the wireless router's job. Repeater only repeats what the main wireless router does to the wireless clients.
1. Hooking up hardware connections:
As of this moment your repeater is not connected to any router or network. It has to be configured further to be able to be connected to your current network and access point router.
3. Connecting your Repeater to your existing network access point or router:
If you are using Windows 7 and your existing access point security wireless is set to WPA2 (AES), make sure your Windows 7 wireless security type properties is set to WPA2-Personal. To check go to Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection, look for your REPEATER router, right-click on it then click Properties, check the settings in the "Security" tab.>
When checking the wireless site survey, you may see two routers with the same SSID (names), these are your Access Point and the REPEATER tied together. This also means you are within the reachable range of both Access point and REPEATER.
5. To check the Repeaters user interface
At this moment, the Repeater is invisible to any client. The client's IP address is drawn from the DHCP server most likely to be also your wireless router. Therefore the IP address of the repeater is also invisible to the clients. Follow steps below:

- Make sure you are directly connected to the unit.
- Do not have a switch or router in between and do not connect wirelessly.
- Make sure your power injector/adapter is on, power is going to the unit, and the "network" side is going to your computer.
- Make sure your computer is set to a static IP address of 192.168.1.10.
- Type in 192.168.1.1 using Internet Explorer.
The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. This IP address is typically in conflict with many routers out in the market. You will need to change the IP address manually to an IP address that is different but part of the same network. This means if your router IP address is 192.168.1.1, you should change the device to 192.168.1.2, for example. We recommend you change the IP address before other settings. You change your IP address in the "LAN" section in the GUI.How do I reset the device?
Locate the reset button next to the CAT5 (RJ45) connection. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds and then let go. You should see your 10/100 LAN connection at your computer go away and then come back. That will confirm a reset has occurred. The unit settings should all be back to default including its IP address of 192.168.1.1.
How do I set up AP WDS Repeater?
Click here for instructions.
How do I set up the device under Apple MAC OS X environment?
Click here for instructions.I cannot connect or maintain a log in to the device.
We recommend using internet explorer with at least IE7 or higher. Make sure you have latest version of Java script.What distance in kilometers (km) should I set the device to?
Default is 1km. If you are setting up long distance point to point links, the time it takes the radio wave to get there needs to be considered for proper handshaking (ACK response). This window should be accurate within 5 kilometers. In other words if you have a 5 kilometer link, ideally you should set it to 5km, but a setting of 1km to 10km should keep you in an acceptable window. For short distances, keep this to 1km.What is a point-to-point link setup?One unit would need to be in AP mode while the other in CB mode. The AP should be connected directly to the routers LAN port, and the other will be in Client Bridge Mode linking back to the AP. The Client side will then provide a WIRED connection for users of the remote location. You can choose to connect this wired connection to just one PC, or to a switch, hub, or another wireless access point for multiple users at the remote location. What is a Client Bridge (CB) Mode?
A client connects to an access point. Your laptop is a client. A bridge is something that connects two "wired" networks together. A client bridge therefore is a radio that wirelessly bridges two networks. The Ethernet port of the 2610 in CB mode provides the wired connection to the remote location. This Ethernet port can directly connect to a single PC, a hub, a switch, or another router.What is considered a "good" signal?The signal meter is not available in AP mode. In CB mode, under connection status, a signal of -74dbm or better is a good signal. It's important to understand which direction numerically is a better signal. Dbm's are referenced to 1 milliwatt. 1mW = 0dbm. A stronger signal would be a positive number and a weak signal would be a very negative number. For example, a -50dbm signal is stronger signal than -92dbm. What is spanning tree protocol?
When there are several possible paths a packet can route to (redundant links for increased reliability for example), a loop can occur (jamming up the network). It is used to prevent these loops.What is the default gateway?The default gateway is your router's IP address. The default gateway information is not required, but is recommended.What is the default user name and password to log into this device?
Log in name is "admin" and password is "admin" by default.What is WDS Mode?Stands for Wireless Distribution System. Allows access points to link together and provide repeating. Note however, this repeating comes at a cost of reduced bandwidth. Bandwidth will be reduced by 30-40%, and it is recommended that NO multiple repeating hops be done for this reason. Which antenna connector is the primary antenna?The one closer to the power jack.
