I have 2 3COM 3CRWE454G75 -> AP, it does work in AP repeater mode
I set the 1st to AP mode and set 2nd to AP repeater mode(with the 1st mac address), together 2nd AP does not work while 1st AP work in AP mode. Both APs have the same SSID, channel, security mode, encryption code, loaded the latest firmware and reset/power up both APs. Still does not work. What am I doing wrong?

I have solved the problem:
- first, I had to change the management address in CF-WFAP into address that could be recognized by the router (i used 192.168.1.2),
- DHCP turned off, and set default gateway and DNS to 192.168.1.1. as in router, computer IP was set to 192.168.1.xxx, push "apply", change web address to new one,
- set AP mode to station-infrastructure, push "apply" buton to restart AP,
- set security to same security as in router and copy key into proper field, push "apply" again to reset the AP
- finaly check wireless station around and choose the router (same encription)
I have had similar problems with DWL-2100 and (much less often) with DWL-3200. I have no solution, but a workaround: changing the authentication mode. For example, if the units are using WPA-Personal, I change it (on both) to WPA2-Personal or WPA-Auto-Personal. It doesn't seem to matter which mode is used, it's just the fact of changing it that helps (eventually). You may have to go through the process more than once. Also, realize that although the web interface comes up 30 seconds or so after a reboot, it may take another 30-60 seconds before a link is established, so don't give up too soon while trying these changes.
I couldn't manage to get the CWA-854 to work in repeater mode with WEP encryption enabled, but it is possible to use MAC Access Control even in repeater mode. Just put the CWA-854 in Access Point (AP) mode, add the MAC addresses you wish to allow in the Access Control tab and selecting Allow Listed from the pull-down menu, and then go back to the repeater configuration you posted. In this way, you may not have encryption, but you can still block others from connecting to your wireless network.
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.
i got yor problem.
as ya said its not allowing ya to log nto it with security enabled. Ya can try to log into it with the ethernet cable as their wil be an
ethernet LAN port onthe access point.
I f ya know the default or the present ip of AP then ya can assign a static ip of the same range to yor computer like eg. ap is 192.168 .1.1 then your comp can have 192.168.1.10 and ya can log into it thru the ethernet cable and disable the security.
i hope ya know how to assign a staic ip add to yor compuetr. or check the screen shots on brivers.com n select the "network connections" screen shots to assign a static ip address to yor' comp.
feel free to chat with me on samrat101 thru yahoo or msn messenger or drop a mail on email@example.com for ny wless n ipphone issues -- take care ,, samrat
Solution: IP of 0.0.0.0 means your DHCP server is not providing configuration settings to your network card. Reset router/access point by pressing the reset button with your finger, the tip of a pen, or a paper clip for at least 30 seconds. Try again!
If this solution doesn't work, try turning off computer, turn off router/AP, and DSL/Cable modem. Turn on devices in reverse order. First power on modem, then router/AP, then computer. Connect to router/AP and see if it provides IP.
If this solution doesn't work, your DHCP settings are not configured correctly. See router's manufacturer manual or visit their Web site.
