Question about NetGear WGX102 54 Mbps Wall-Plugged Wireless Range Extender - wireless access point (S4402477)

1 Answer

Problem with ''long range'' connection...

We have 2 buildings and have been using this unit to provide internet access at the second building. It has been working flawlessly until today. If we bring the remote plug-in unit into the first building with the router we are able to connect with no problem. If we take it back to the second building the computer shows it is a local connection only and will not allow access to the internet. All lights are on when plugged in at either location and the wireless light blinks. A friend is having the same problem with his unit. Any suggestions?

3com Switch Intermittently Losing Connection.


this could be a problem with the second switch unit. what happens if you connect a pc to this cable, is that intermittent, if so, that is your problem. try fault finding with a LAN cable tester to see if there's any issue with the link cable.

How to setup internet between 2 EnGenius EOC-2610 devices?


Thanks for a very thorough problem report. It's a little ambiguous near the end, though, so I will have to restate what I think I understand you are saying.
You are saying that you have your internet connection and AP in one building, and two devices or PCs in that building can access the internet and share files (though you don't specify if they are using the EOC-2610 access point or are just accessing the router in some other fashion). But you have a remote building where there is one PC and one EOC-2610 in Client Bridge mode, and although both EOC-2610 units seem to be communicating with each other, the PC will not communicate with anything. (I presume you have inspected the access point's configuration screens and verified that it does have the other EOC-2610 listed as a connected client.)
First, the PC in the remote building has to be connected to the Client Bridge EOC-2610 by its ethernet cable in order to access the network. Second, the PC in the remote building has to have a valid IP address in the range 192.168.0.0/24, or it won't communicate with anything. If you are relying on your router's DHCP to assign your PC an IP address, verify that this has happened by examining your PC network properties. If you are assigning all IP addresses manually, make sure you have assigned the PC an address, and one that doesn't duplicate some other device.
Sometimes failure to specify DNS servers appears to be a lack of communication with the network. Open a browser and type 66.70.119.204 in the URL bar. If you get to fixya.com, you have a good network connection. If you type fixya.com in the URL bar and can't get the same result, you need to define DNS servers on the PC (or inside your router).

18 miles max range but actual it can transmit and


The reason for this is due to various possible conditions. The first being obstacles in the operation range of the unit. IE> hills buildings trees ect. This can greatly reduce the actual distance the unit will work in. The 18mile max is probably a rating that would apply in the best opt. scenario. You would have to be on a flat terrain with no hills or valleys,no trees or buildings for the unit to reach the max distance. In dense areas of trees,buildings or uneven terrian you wont even come close to these distances. Second: any unit RF unit that is held in your hand or close to your body does cause the antenna to detune to various degrees the amount that it does depends on how well the unit has been designed. The more it detunes the less resonated frequence is recieved and amplified making for a weaker signal. In conclusion for the best long range reception be clear of as much surronding interference as possible and as high a possible above any elevated terrian

How to connect acer as5920 to internet


You can connect to the Internet using a cable or DSL modem and connect it to your computer using a network cable or a USB cable.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

If you want to connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then read this.
What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.
