Same experience here. My solution was to connect the thing to my PC via the Ethernet cable and then type the given IP address in my browser. This way the utility software could be accessed and the installation then worked.

Hope this helps.

How to use ENHWI-N3 / ENHWI-N34D / ENHWI-2AN3 / ENHWI-2AN34D / ENHWI-3GN3 as a Repeater?


  • For Advance Users, you can download this document.
  • 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.

    Checklist:

    • You should know the wireless security type of the existing wireless AP/router, is it a WPA, WPA2 or a WEP?
    • The wireless security key, or password or passphrase of the existing wireless router
    • Your existing wireless router's SSID
    • We recommend that the existing network you are about to add the Repeater on have a DHCP server running and able to lease IP address to all network clients. If you are not sure about this, please ask your ISP or the person who installed your network.

    Hardware Checklist:

    • Computer with wireless device turned off. This is only to set up the repeater, once finished the wireless can be turned on again.
    • The computer must have an available RJ-45 network interface card and web browser installed.
    • A working wireless router or Access Point with one available RJ45 port
    • RJ-45 UTP/TP Ethernet LAN Cable
    • The Encore Router is set to factory default. If your Encore Router is brand new and just pulled out of the box, no need to reset. If changes were made to any settings to the Encore Router before, make sure you "hardware reset" the Encore Router to the factory default settings. Check the User's Manual on how to "hardware reset" the router.

    PROCEDURES:
    1. Hooking up hardware connections:

    1. Both PC or Laptop and the Encore Router should be turned-on.
    2. Disable the wireless client from your PC or laptop computer (if not done so)
    3. Connect the Ethernet cable to the PC or laptop computer and the Encore Router. (This can be done while PC computer and router are turned on.)
    2. Switching mode from AP Mode to Repeater Mode
    1. Using your computer's web browser such as Internet Explorer or Safari Firefox, enter 192.168.0.1 to the address field then hit enter. You should see the Encore Router's User Interface screen still in the AP Router Mode
    2. On the upper right corner of the user interface menu, click on the drop down menu and select "Repeater Mode". Click the "OK" button to the warning box. Wait around 35 seconds until your screen comes back to Encore user interface screen, this time the screen is now in the Repeater Mode. If for some reason you were asked by the repeater to enter the username and password, enter the default username and password (admin/admin) and your Encore Router is now in Repeater Mode.

    NOTE:
    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:

    1. As soon as the Encore Router switched to the Repeater Mode, you should be able to see the same Utility Screen with fewer selections on the left pane.
    2. From the Main Menu screen click on "Wireless" located on the left pane.
    3. Click on "Site Survey" button, a new Window dialogue box will pop up showing a list of Access Points reachable by your Repeater
    4. Check your existing network's access point SSID then click on the radio button that corresponds to your access point router then click "Connect" button.(If you can't find your existing AP router, click on "Refresh" repeatedly until your access point show up, or your location is too far from your existing AP router).
    5. Click on the "Encryption" drop down menu, select your existing access point wireless security, enter your existing router's wireless security key or passphrase then click "Apply". If you get a FAILED message, repeat this procedure again, a wireless hiccup might be interfering, otherwise you now have a working Repeater.
    6. Check your repeater connection by going to your internet browser and open a web page of your choice. If successful your new wireless repeater is working.
    7. Disconnect the Ethernet cable and setup your computer back to its original wireless settings. At this stage, the Repeater is now invisible to any wireless client computers. When connecting a new wireless client within the repeater's wireless range the process is the same as there is no Repeater device at all, the SSID of the wireless router will just be extended in range around where the Repeater is physically located.
    4. Connect your remote wireless client to your wireless router
    1. Using your wireless client utility program, look for your existing router's SSID and connects to it, if this is a new client you will be prompted with the wireless security key. Your repeater is invisible to all wireless clients. All it does is to repeat the wireless router signal as it is to extend its range. Once you have converted the Encore Router to Repeater and successfully connected to your existing router there will be no more configuration needed to the repeater. If you happen to see two identical SSID's of your existing router, this means your wireless client is within the same range of your existing router and the new wireless repeater, then your client don't need the repeater's service.

    NOTE:
    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.>

    NOTE:
    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:

    1. Disable wireless connection or turn off wireless in the client PC computer
    2. Connect Ethernet network cable to the RJ-45 port of the client PC computer
    3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports of the repeater.
    4. From your computer, set the network card IP address to Static IP Address entering 192.168.0.102, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, leave the rest as blank.
    5. Open IE or Internet explorer or any other web browser software and run 192.168.0.1, you should be able to see the Encore Repeater user interface screen. (Changing any settings in the repeater may affect its performance)
    That should help :)

    I have a new laptop computer and am wondering how I log on to internet as it is asking for my access/security code?


    I assume you are connecting thru wireless or wifi. If its asking for the security code then you have to know the security password for the SSID on that wifi router. Many Wifi routers have security passwords before you can access the internet. If you are connecting to your wireless router then just disbale the security password but will be disadvantageous because other people can connect to your router. Just ask the person for the password who initially setup your wireless router.

    I'm trying to connect to internet via wifi and it's asking for a device password. what is that? this is a d430 dell.


    I suspect the device that is asking for a password will be your wireless router. Normally, the password, or key, is printed on a label on the side or bottom of the router.
