WAP connecting to another WAP

I helping someone connect a hawking HWUR54G AP with a dlink gw7000ap that has a omni directional antenna, now hooked to that is a regular linksys wireless router, via DSL. I could connect the HAP to the wireless connection of the linksys router but for some reason the connection will not work with the DLink AP which has the bigger antenna. I configured the wireless settings and CID but it doesnt seem to connect. Any suggestions?

    in most setups you have to add the MAC address of the router to the AP's wireless repeater setting. setup

On the D-Link WAN page, change IP Address to static and give it an address about 30 away from both the Hawking and the Linksys. On the DHCP page, disable DHCP.

In a multiple router network such as yours, you can only have ONE real router. The others have to be disabled as routers. Disable thier DHCP and give them static addresses that are all at leat 10? or more from each other. Wireless should all be the same setup. The on;y exception is the SSID which can be slightly different to know which wireless you are on.

Why i cannot factory reset username, password and ssid ap? and i just can factory reset ip ap


What are you connecting the wap-1001 to? An existing network . Does the subnet mask match it defaults to 255.255.0.0
if the p.c you plug directly into the ethernet connection of the ap has a different subnet mask it can't talk to the router. how does your p.c get its ip address is it static or dynamic via dhcp server . ip is default of 192.168.1.20 also is anything assigned 192.168.1.20 .

peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

How can I extend the router's range?


Most routers have about 200m range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. Generally the antenas are omni-directional, however, directional antenna can be used to improve range in one direction.There are two ways to increase the range/ coverage area (i) Adding external antenna of appropriate type (ii) Installing additional Access Point (AP) connecting it with the existing AP wirelessly in line-of-sight (creating WDS) OR connecting the two APs with wire, which is a better option as it provides robust and reliable connectivity between APs.

Based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the AP to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the AP at the desk level, avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.

HOPE IT HELPS...Let me know if you need any further clarification assistance specific to you AP make and model. Don't forget to rate the solution if I could have been of any help!
Goodluck!

First, I appreciate the details provided by you. It could be better if you could let me know the make/ model of Access Point. Below are typical ways to address the issues highlighted by you:
1. YOU CAN RESET THE ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS
You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. Press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please note that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN. Also, checkout the reset
procedure for your specific access point model.

2. Most routers have about 200m range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. Generally the antenas are omni-directional, however, directional antenna can be used to improve range in one direction.There are two ways to increase the range/ coverage area (i) Adding external antenna of appropriate type (ii) Installing additional Access Point (AP) connecting it with the existing AP wirelessly in line-of-sight (creating WDS) OR connecting the two APs with wire, which is a better option as it provides robust and reliable connectivity between APs.

Is there any way to setup the Hawking Repeater without the Setup Wizard Installation disk?


Yes you can configure it with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi Then save settings and restart router Then connect cable from internet service provider to WAN port of router and connect ethenet lan cable from computer to lan port of router. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Setting up a secure wireless internet with HWR54G


Go to the Hawking Technologies website and look under there products for and installation. From what I've read it states that " the HWR54G comes equipped with advanced firewall functions to protect your internal network (LAN) from unwanted intruders and attacks." taken directly from there website"Installation of the HWR54G is very simple. In a matter of a few clicks on your mouse, the new Setup Wizard will automatically configure your Wireless Router for internet access. Another great feature is the removable external antenna. For those that feel the need to extend the range of their wireless network, the HWR54G allows for easy upgrading. By adding one of Hawking's Hi-Gain 24 Series Wireless antennas, the range of your wireless network may be increased by up to 100%. For more information regarding Hawking's Hi-Gain antennas please check the Hi-Gain 24 Series Section of the website.

D-link dwl-2100ap in WDS mode Received Deauth: WLAN 1 11G STA


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.

Loses connectivity


Hi, a couple of ideas: 1. maybe out of range or too many obstruction, how far is the client from the AP or are there any objects in between. it's gotta be line of sight; 2. with 200mW power output and 5dBi external antenna, should be adequate, if not maybe slightly directional performance (no longer perfect omni). try rotating the device and more or less guesstimate max signal at a particular orientation (pointed towards the client). Netstumbler would be good enough for signal strength; 3. consider the optional integrated 9dBi patch antenna; 4. for the client having a hard time with the AP, manually enter the TCP/IP settings and not auto obtain. numbers should of course match AP settings except for the last digit(s) of the IP add; 5. try moving the client away from any RFI sources like cordless/wireless phones, microwave ovens and others; 6. at one time, signal strength to a client improved by moving the AP a couple of feet away from the original installation point. of course if your unit is mast mounted, then you have to move the mast as well or put up a new one. Hope this works for you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up.
