Question about Computers & Internet
I have a TP-wa5210g repeater. It picks up the signal great and I can connect multiple laptops wirelessly. However, cell phones cannot connect to it. I've tried Iphones and Androids, they both "see" the signal but both say "obtaining IP address" and never connects. I'm not sure what to do as I don't know much about this stuff. The cell phones pick up the signal at the original source, no issues (when I'm close enough to the source to read the signal). But I'm so far away from the original source, I need this repeater (or whatever it's called) to strengthen the signal at my shop. I hope I explained it all ok. If not, let me know and I'll answer any questions as this if frustrating the HECK out of me! Thanks!
A "repeater" cannot give an IP address only pass the request back to the main router. You could set a fixed IP in the phone but that would screw it when away from your router.
Something is going wrong with DHCP requests passed through your repeater. Check the settings.

SOURCE: OTC Wireless Bridge
Alright I have good news and bad news the good news is: if you remove your IP Phones the setup will work again. Once it is working plug in one of your IP phones with Laptop plugged into the bridge. Once the IP phone is connected test if the Laptop remains connected. The use another Laptop with crossover cable to connect it to the IP Phone one question (is the IP Phone acting as a bridge between the OTC Router and the Laptop?)If it is it can pull an IP address if the OTC Router is a router and the IP phone is acting as a routed interface bridge. Once you get this to work duplicate the setup for the rest of you IP phones and laptops. BTW you do realize you are pummeling the router with RTP/UDP packets? I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83

Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
