Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Sitecom WL-330 wireless extender. My intention is to use this as a wireless/ethernet bridge, connecting to an existing wireless network and then connecting an old PC via ethernet to the extender. I can configure the extender - browse to 192.168.1.234 and connect to my wireless network no problem. However while my old PC registers a network connection when connected via ethernet cable to the extender, I cannot access the internet. The wireless router is IP 192.168.0.1, and the extender has a default IP of 192.168.1.234. My wireless router assigns IPs using DHCP. Do I need to update the extenders IP to be 192.168.0.something and if I do, will I also need to forget about DHCP and assign IPs to the PCs on the network statically? Ideally I would be able to rely on DHCP. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got a problem in connecting my samsung galaxy GT-7500 to sitecom extender 300N .. I have tried to change the IP address but it doesn't work with me . Any help plz?


Which modes are you trying to use this Sitecom? If you have the Sitecom as your Access Point (AP Mode), then you would need a LAN connection to your internet gateway (DSL, Cable Modem, etc). I didn't see any LAN hook up so I assume you are trying to use it as a wireless repeater. So you need to configure the unit differently. The 3rd mode is called Bridge mode. Again, you need to have a LAN hook up to your local network with a router or network switch.
Because your Tablet is connecting to the Sitecom okay, which mean that you either have the Sitecom setting for AP mode or Bridge mode. And the reason it didn't give you access to internet because there is no internet gateway connection to the Sitecom (LAN). I hope this answer your question (or confuse you totally).

Sitecom WL-342 Wireless Router won't access internet.


Hello,

Make sure there is a network cable going from your ADSL modem into the WAN connection of the router.

If the ADSL modem is wireless, then it is also a router in whihc case you will want to bypass the WL-342 all together.

Thanks,

Pat

Sitecom WL-330 range extender with dlink dir-615- unable to use


I am guessing you have XP or vista. here are the instructions for both.
XP 1. Click ‘Start’ button (it should be located at lower-left corner of your computer), then click control panel. Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections icon, double click Local Area Connection, and Local Area Connection Properties window will appear. Select ‘Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)’, then click ‘Properties’ 2. Select ‘Use the following IP address’, then input the following settings in respective field: IP address: 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Click ‘OK’ when finish.
Vista 1. Click the ‘Start’ button (it should be located at lower-left corner of your computer), then click control panel. Click View Network Status and Tasks, then click Manage Network Connections. Right-click Local Area Network, then select ‘Properties’. The Local Area Connection Properties window will appear, select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP / IPv4)’, and then click ‘Properties’ 2. Select ‘Use the following IP address’, then input the following settings in respective field: IP address: 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Click ‘OK’ when finish.
Next step for both All functions and settings of this access point must be configured via the web management interface. Please start your web browser, and input ‘192.168.0.234’ in the address bar, and press the ‘Enter’ key. The following dialog should be shown: Please input user name and password in the field respectively. The default user name is ‘admin’, and the default password is ‘admin’. Press the ‘OK’ button to see the web management interface of this access point: NOTE: If you can’t see the web management interface, and you’re being prompted to input user name and password again, it means you didn’t input username and password correctly. Please retype user name and password again. After you connected to the access point by web browser, the first thing you see is ‘Status and Information’ page. All system and network related information of this access point will be displayed here. The information is very helpful when you want to know the detailed information of your access point, and when you try to fix the communication problem between this access point and other wired / wireless computer / devices. You can click ‘Home’ on the left, This access point can be operated in different modes; you can click ‘Basic Setting’ to select an operating mode you want to meet for different needs: You can click ‘Mode’ dropdown menu to select operating mode, and there are 3 operating modes available: AP Access point mode, allows wireless clients to connect to access point and exchange data with the devices connected to the wired network. Station- Infrastructure Enable the Ethernet device such us TV and Game player connected to the access point to a wireless client. Universal Repeater This product can act as a wireless range extender that will help you to extend the networking wirelessly. The access point can act as Station and AP at the same time. It can use Station function to connect to a Root AP and use AP function to service all wireless clients within its coverage. You can hopefully figure it out from there.

Can't setup to virgin braodband


You mean ascii and hexadecimal.
  • Hard wire your router to your PC with an ethernet cable
  • Open your web browser, go to website http://192.168.0.1
  • Input username/password both are "admin" (without the quotes)
  • choose "wireless settings" (third tab from left)
  • go to "security" (fourth tab from left)
  • Choose WEP (if the first box on this page already says WEP you may skip this step)
  • choose 64-bit
  • type random 10 digit code into key 1 (eg. 38-38-2D-E3-B0)
  • Save settings (bottom of page)
  • write code down somewhere or make it easy to remember
  • disconnect your ethernet cable from router, try to connect to wireless network, enter code (from above) and it will connect.

Wireless extender


OK.
It's pretty easy:
1) turn on both devices
2) connect to sitecom device.
- you may have to manually set your IP address. (from network resources control panel, TCP/IP tab. Check the istructions, cause you have to choose an address in the same subnet of the sitecom range extender. I mean, the first three numbers must be the same, and the last number of the address must be different, between 3 and 255).
- now you can type the sitecom address into the address bar of your browser (allow pop ups from that address!). The defaut user name is admin, as well the default password.
3) Ok, now you're connected and you just have to set this way in the basic settings:
working mode: universal repeater
now click on site survey and remember the ssid of your main network, and the channel number.
channel: type the channel number of your network (IT MAY CHANGE WHEN YOU TURN OFF\ON THE ROUTER!! so you'll have to change it maybe every day..... **** sitecom device, I HATE IT)
ssid: the ssid of your main network.
4) click apply.
Of course if your WLAN is protected you must set the rigth password and encription algorithm...

Now it should work.. but remember, everyday you will have to change the channel, and sometimes ou will have to reset it, from he toolbo tab.

IT,S BETTER NOT TO BUY THIS DEVICE, cause even the latest firmware is not working properly.

Problem with sitecom wl-130 connection


I think I have the solution: you have to click on the basic settings tab, then n "site survey" button, then (optional) on "refresh" button.
Now you will get the information about your network, and you just have to check the channel number of the signal from your main router. then you have to set that channel in the "channel" button of the basic settings tab. You also have to choose Universal repeater as working mode of the sitecom device, instead of Access Point.
Hope it helps.
By the way, all these settings should be automatic in such a device.... But this sitecom range extender is ****.
I suggest everybody is reading: DON,T BUY THIS ITEM!!!! Spend 10 bucks more and get a working one!!!

Compatibility with Sitecom wl 031


This 10dBi omni directional antenna enables you to very easily extend the range of your wireless network. By linking the Omni Antenna to your wireless router, you gain the benefits of an optimum wireless signal while minimising the number of ‘dead spots’ (points in your home where the signal is either weak or lost).
However it does not fit the following types of routers,modems and accespoints:
WL-143
WL-122v2
WL-114/WL-517
WL-114v2
WL-108/WL109
WL-111
WL-106
WL-025
WL-018v2
These antenne's will also fit other brands of wireless products that use an SMA connector
