ActionTech Wireless Gateway can't route Wireless to LAN

I am trying to use the GT704GW(GW) to extend my home LAN with wireless access capability. The GW will not allow wireless devices and its local ethernet ports to be on separate subnets. I cannot ping from wirelessly attached laptop to the internet through my LAN. Altho I can ping the LANs default gateway and can ping addresses on the internet from the test ping utility on the GW. I tried introducing static routes to direct all outbound traffic to the LAN default gateway to no avail. Is there a way to use the WG as a regular access point? I am not using DSL. It seems that it will only allow routing to the DSL port. Thanks.. JohnA

Disable firewall on all devices. All types of security sofwares should also be disabled in order to ping each devices.

Why doesn't my netgear extender ask for name and password when I try to use it to connect to internet. It tells me that there is an authentication problem


Hi there! smile.gif Please note that the Tenda 150mbps Wireless Range Extender A3 uses a default IP address of 192.168.0.254 - you must set your IP address to the 192.168.0.* range (* = any number between 2 and 253) to login.

The default access username / password (if required) are admin and admin.

Once you've logged in, you can configure the access point to route through your existing wireless router as the default gateway (eg. if your wifi router is 192.168.1.1, then you would route through that, and set your Repeater (Extender) IP to 192.168.1.2 so that you can connect to it and then "relay" your connection through the repeater. It doesn't mirror the connection details for the existing wifi router, it simply creates an "additional" access point to connect through to your existing wifi router - creating a bridge, essentially.

The extender can be linked to the existing wifi router via LAN cable or WDS. For WDS, you will need to set the IP's 1 digit apart in the last segment (see above IP difference), and switch them both in the Wireless menu to ""Wireless Networking Mode: Network Bridge (WDS), but the SSID must remain the same (eg. "Tenda1") for both of them (it doesn't cause a network loopback), and any wireless security authentication must be identical (password / pass phrase / key + encryption algorithm) on both devices. Again, as with the above point, remember to set the gateway of the extender / repeater to that of the primary WiFi router.

Static route for two different subnets


You did not say where are your two computers. Anyway, computers should work on most subnets routes except between 10.20.30.0 and 10.20.40.0 subnet.
Static routing should be set on two computers not on routers.
Assume computer A is connected to 10.20.30.252 Router A and Computer B is connected to router B.
On Computer A, you need to add route to -inet 10.20.40.0/24 via GW 203.187.106.147, and on computer B to set rotue to -inet 10.20.30/24via GW 203.187.106.138. That is all you need.

How do network extenders improve the range?


A Range Extender allows you to extend your wireless networks to areas of the home where the signal may not be strong enough. Whilst an Access Point allows you to add wireless capabilities to a non-wireless router.

Unfortunately, you can't use two routers together in that manner. You must have a device in between them such as a switch or bridge or you'll have to disable the DHCP server settings in the second router. The second router then pretty much becomes a switch you may then use all the ports on the second router with the exception of the WAN port it must remain unoccupied. However, if you need wireless connectivity in another location far away from your main router then your only solution would be to indeed purchase an actual access point/bridge device

I use sonic wall VPN to work form home. I use a lan BUT I also have a Belkin Wirelss N. When I plug into the wireless I cannot log into the VPN BUT everyone can use their laptops. Is there a way to work...


Is this Belkin Wireless N a Gateway / Router or is it a Wireless Access Point WAP¿ If it is a Gateway it is most likely not getting the inbound packets from the VPN since you are most likely using the same octets in the Sonic Wall VPN as well in the Gateway. I would recommend finding a WAP to link the wired world (the LAN and your VPN) and the wireless world everyone else you want to have access to your wireless signal. At this point I would recommend that you ensure your security is adequate since at this time the Wireless world has access to your VPN.

Connecting wireless


Based on the category you picked I need to ask if you want to connect a wireless adapter in a computer to the one wireless router you have or do you have such a large area that you need two wireless routers to cover the space. They are two very different issues. Please add a comment to this issue if you really have two routers -- it is a different problem than the one I will describe.

Assuming the picture of the device is right and it is another wireless adapter you need to connect to the router.-- the simple answer is basically the same as the ones before which is probably not helpful now. (Assuming the wireless adapter is installed and the drivers loaded.) Then if you have an secure network (where WEP or WPA was enabled) you probably will need to connect to the specific network using your adapters manufacturer's software or Windows Wireless Zero Configuration where you will probably need to supply a network name (SSID) and the passphrase that was configured inro the router. If you have an unsecured network your adapter may work without configuration. There is one other possible issue -- most routers dynamically assign ip address and other information to the adapters. If your router was not configured to supply all information including DNS addresses we may have some additional configuration to apply to the wireless adapter.

Please respond if these steps are two complex so I can provide additional information. Please provide the manufacturer and model of the wireless router and wireless adapter if that is the case so I can provide more detailed information specific to your hardware.
