You have to configure the WDS on the 3comm, configuring it to the MAC ADRESS of the BT router (if it is wireless), if not connect it by ethernet and set the 3comm as WDS allowing the other 3 more u want to add as acepted MAC ADRESS for access points.

Hi there

I think up to now you've been using someone else's Internet service, by picking up the signal wirelessly. You need your own Internet Service. You now connect your access point in the way the Internet Service Provider guide you. It is a different set up with cable (they provide a modem) or with BT (connection through your phone line).

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

Hi,
This could have a number of causes. However, you could try adjusting your MTU settings, since this can cause problems with accessing msn and similar sites. You can do this from within the router user interface.
You may well have tried this already. If not, experiment gradually with reducing the MTU setting towards 1400 - see this link for a quick tutorial (though not your router model, I know).
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n100603.asp
For safety, of course, please back up the registry, or set a system restore point, before trying this out.
Other 'fixes' depend on your OS and security settings. However, since the problem does seem to be within your new router, you might find more information on the 3com knowledgebase.

Repeater


The repeater must be the same brand as the signal it is repeating. Different routers / access points work in slightly different ways and the current generation of wireless repeaters aren't smart enough to work with other brands.

It's kind of like trying to put an engine from a Nissan Altima into a Honda Accord... both make the car move but they aren't the same inside.
