Question about Encore 802.11G WIRELESS LAN ROUTER W/4-PORT SWITCH
I am have trouble connecting to the internet, using the router. If I by pass the router and connect directly to my computer I have no trouble. My provider says the router is holding the old IP address. When I use the repair on my computer, it gives me an error of- trouble clearing ARP cache. Any ideas?
Generally routers can be configured using a web browser. But first we need the manual for the router to know what we are doing. Using the router link below look on your router and try to match the model numbers in red on the left under wireless with your router. If that does not work try matching with the contents of the select a product drop down list box in the top center of the window.
Second -- assuming this router is had a previous owner or was used in another location we need to get access to the router.
If the router currently does not work with your current ISP as indicated you may want to reset the router using instructions from the manual -- reply to this message if you need help.
If you believe the router may contain useful information we need to try to get the router's IP address.
Assuming your computer runs windows XP try this. --
Connect the computer to the LAN (not WAN) portion of the router -- this is probably 4 consecutive ports to plug cables into. Power up both the computer and the router (not connection to the internet required.
Click on Start
then All Programs
then Command Prompt
type -- ipconfig -- (8 letters) and press enter.
Report the resulting display of one or more adapters, ip addresses, subnet masks and default gateways here Iand I will help with the next step.
If you can provide a web link to your ISP's help site -- we will probably be able to conffigure the router for your use with your ISP.

Tips for a great answer:
The reason why people use a Encore wireless repeater is because some wireless remote client computers are out of range from the main network's access point (wireless router), or the wireless client is in the dead spot or the device you want to share to the network have no wireless interface card.
The function of a wireless repeater is basically to extend the wireless signal coverage. Wireless repeater does not authenticate, screen, secure, connect to the internet, give IP address to clients, broadcast names, etc., these are the wireless router's job. Repeater only repeats what the main wireless router does to the wireless clients.
1. Hooking up hardware connections:
As of this moment your repeater is not connected to any router or network. It has to be configured further to be able to be connected to your current network and access point router.
3. Connecting your Repeater to your existing network access point or router:
If you are using Windows 7 and your existing access point security wireless is set to WPA2 (AES), make sure your Windows 7 wireless security type properties is set to WPA2-Personal. To check go to Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection, look for your REPEATER router, right-click on it then click Properties, check the settings in the "Security" tab.>
When checking the wireless site survey, you may see two routers with the same SSID (names), these are your Access Point and the REPEATER tied together. This also means you are within the reachable range of both Access point and REPEATER.
5. To check the Repeaters user interface
At this moment, the Repeater is invisible to any client. The client's IP address is drawn from the DHCP server most likely to be also your wireless router. Therefore the IP address of the repeater is also invisible to the clients. Follow steps below:
