Re: dlink 2100 ap

If you default the unit, does it still reboot?

If so, it looks like the unit is faultly.

If not, you might have a IP conflict, or channel problem. Check the two units are on the same channel, but have differant IP address.

The router was reset. So, our AP does not work with it anymore. I reset the AP to restore it to its factory default settings and tried to follow the steps I made before in configuring the AP. but i can't...

Before you configure this device, note that when the AP is configured through an Ethernet connection, (via RJ45 Network Cable) make sure the manager PC must be set on same the IP network. For example, when the default network address of the default IP address of the AP is, then the manager PC should be set at 192.168.1.x (where x is a number between 2 and 254), and the default subnet mask is
Open Internet Explorer 5.0 or above Web browser.
Enter IP address (the factory-default IP address setting) to the address location. Please refer here to the Latest User Manual for Encore ENRWI-G Page 9 onwards describes the login details.

Hope this Helps!

SETTING A ROUTER AS A REPEATER 1. Connect your computer to the repeater router's...

1. Connect your computer to the repeater router's RJ45 portwith a LAN cable.
2. Open a browser, then enter the router's URL configuration's IP address, This is usually something similar to
3. Enter the configuration user name and password. The router will display the various router settings.
4. Go to the page that changes the IP address of the router.Changed the IP address so that it is not the same as the main router on the network, or any other network devices. If the main router on the network is set to then the repeater router should use a higher number (ie. 10 or higher), such as or higher, depending on how many devices are on your network.
5. Disable the repeater router's DHCP server. This setting should be on the same page as the IP address, (this may be different depending on the make of the router). When the main router is operating normally, this server assigns an IP address to every device that is connected to your network. Because this router is used as a repeater, the main router on your network will still issue the IP addresses.
6. Also turn off the DNS server, if it is activated. This function will be taken over by the main router.
7. Disable any firewall settings on the repeater router.This is usually in the "Security" section, depending on the make and model of your router.
8. Remove all in the "Port Forwarding" section. Some routers may refer to this as "Applications and Gaming," and it allows less-restricted access to the internet.
9. Set the operating mode switch to "Gateway" or "Switch" if applicable. Also, if the repeater router is a wireless router then disable the wireless access or set it to access point only.
10. Save the settings for each page, and reboot the router. When the router boots up, the changes will allow it to act as a simple repeater.
11. Now, place the repeater router in a new location and connect both routers with a Ethernet cable in each of the router's RJ45 LAN ports, and power it up both routers.

Can't access the internet. No problem with the static IP address and setting up the DWL G710. Searched and found 2 AP's for my wireless account. Selected one and saved. Got indication that DWL G710 was...

Is there any particular reason you're using a static IP? Most routers are set up already for DHCP.

If you need to use a static IP, make sure you have the right settings for the default gateway and DNS servers (you'll have to contact your ISP to find out the addresses for the DNS servers).

I would recommend switching to DHCP though, and you won't have to worry about such settings.

Connection of dlink range extender

I have this unit. Make sure that the network you are repeating is set to stay on a certain channel. The router I was repeating was set to dynamic channels so that it changed based on what channel had less interference. The dlink repeater does not like that and needs the channel to stay the same.

DWL-G710 - Not able to logon with standard IP-adress

Must have same IP-adress on Router and Repeater 192.168.0.x. Then have cable from router to PC and from router to repeater. Then logon to repeater and the Dlink-repeater SW have a command where you can see available networks. See to that you choose the right one and that channel, name and password is the same as the router. The repeater will not be visible when you search for available networks because it has the same name as the router. I also had to restart the router and the repeater before it worked.
The repeater gives us excellent connection where we otherwise has no connection, so I can recommend it.

Can a dlink dwl g710 range extender work like an acess point

hi, i think there is no chance to make an AP from range extender because it is ONLY RANGE EXTENDER so you need another device to work as AP.

WAP54G as AP -- WRE54G no DHCP

I had the same problem. Went through tons of emails and finally twigged onto one that had the solution. Sorry that I do not have the link but I think I know the solution.

The problem is probably in the router. Computers on the network can ping and you can even open the application when you enter the address into your browser, correct? You are only half done.

On your router make sure that the Wireless Distribution Service or WDS is enabled. This is extremely important. You will need to enter the mac address of your WRE54G into the field in your router's advanced settings under WDS. That will connect the two devices together. Just as the WRE54G needs to know the mac address of the router, the router needs to know the mac address of the WRE54G.

I have ver 3 and when the connection was made, both LEDs went blue and the Link Status on the in the browser changed from ------- to the mac address of the router.

Give that a try
