Your repeater probably worked as it was supposed to but because you don't really understand the technology, users like yourself plug gadgets in, push the limits to the maximum and then wonder why it fails.
The best way to extend your network is to run an ethernet cable to a repeater.
Trying to extend a weak wireless signal via wireless will almost always be doomed to failure.

SOURCE: Change the local IP address of Billion 400G

You need to login to the router page with the IP 10.0.0.2 and the on that and you can change the IP from that page
On login it will ask for username and password it is admin and password is "password" by default if you have any issue in getting user name and password you can reset the router as below

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router. 1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 10 seconds). 2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
it will come back to factory settings of 192.168.1.1 and then you need to configure the router as per your internet service provider

you can check the manual at the below link

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.

How extend in built wifi


You can purchase a wifi repeater fairly inexpensively now if you are trying to extend the WIFI range of your existing network. They are pretty easy to setup. They mirror your existing network and you then place them on the outer most area that your network is able to reach. It then extends your primary network further out in that direction. You can add multiple WIFI extenders to a network to cover large areas like a motel or apartment complex.

How to connect two wifi routers using modem....In home on one network???


while two WiFi connections can work, if youdo it that way you will need to disconnect from one and reconnect to other everytime you move from one extreme to the other. also you only extend your range by the distance from one to the other.

what you need (for a weak signal) is a repeater. it is a box designed to listen on one WiFi channel and repeat it on another. bin turn it also listens on the repeated channel for communication from your remote device and repeats it onto the original channel so it is as if the new channel is the original channel... place this repeater at half strength distance (power source will be needed but wires to base computer not needed) and you have extended your range by about half the distance...

to go further out just add another repeater (or more)
I googled "WiFi repeater" and was presented with a wide range of options (see photo for partial screenie)... generally the more expensive the further or wider the range... without even looking further i would suspect that the more expensive ones likely could even cover more range than two of that modem you showed combined

a few shown might be the kind with two units that you plug one near base computer and plug other farthest away from base... they not only use house wiring to power the units but also use the electric wire as an antenna for comunicating as if there were an ethernet connection between them.
