Question about Trendware 54Mbps 802.11g Wireless AP

1 Answer

Can't connect to AT&T VPN

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to my office VPN using "AT&T Global Network Client" and I'm getting below error:
The connection timed out waiting for the VPN server to respond. This can occur if your computer is behind a firewall that does not permit UDP or IPSec traffic. Contact your local network administrator for assistance. (229)

I'm connecting my Laptop to the Router which is connected to the comcast cable modem. When I connect my laptop directly to the cable modem I am able to get the VPN connection, so, obviously my Router is blocking some traffic.

I've tried opening up all kinds of ports and protocols but it just won't work.

I would really appreciate if any one can shed some light on this for me.

    I'm using TrendNet TEW-452BRP Router. I've browsed every single option on the admin page but couldn't find any such options.

    If you could point me in the right direction, that will be great.

I'll need to know what router you're using, make and model, for more specific help, but sometimes there is an option for IPSec passthrough. For example, on my Linksys Wireless Router WRT54G, there is a set of buttons under Security/VPN that are entitled IPSec Passthrough, PPTP Passthrough, and L2TP Passthrough. Since I don't know what router you're using, I can't tell you wether or not your router supports such functions or not, but if it does, you need to enable them.

    Couple suggestions... first, you can try putting the machine that is trying to establish the VPN in the DMZ. This will disable the router's built-in firewall so you should consider a host-based firewall on the machine.



    Second, when I was checking out the support site at TrendNet, I found a solution to another problem that might work here. It suggested that there might be another router on your network. Check the WAN IP address and see if it is in a private range (192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x, or 10.x.x.x); if it is, set the LAN IP on the router to be in the same subnet.



    Third, depending on the router version (C, B, or A), I found that there is an IPSec radio button on the Management tab of the web interface. You might try that.

You can use repeaters but its not an ideal solution. You may need repeaters at every 100m which means 10 repeaters plus internet or connectivity is not guranteed. Because distance is very large. Look for an alternate ISP connection or something.

How to use ENHWI-N3 / ENHWI-N34D / ENHWI-2AN3 / ENHWI-2AN34D / ENHWI-3GN3 as a Repeater?


  • For Advance Users, you can download this document.
  • 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.

    Checklist:

    • You should know the wireless security type of the existing wireless AP/router, is it a WPA, WPA2 or a WEP?
    • The wireless security key, or password or passphrase of the existing wireless router
    • Your existing wireless router's SSID
    • We recommend that the existing network you are about to add the Repeater on have a DHCP server running and able to lease IP address to all network clients. If you are not sure about this, please ask your ISP or the person who installed your network.

    Hardware Checklist:

    • Computer with wireless device turned off. This is only to set up the repeater, once finished the wireless can be turned on again.
    • The computer must have an available RJ-45 network interface card and web browser installed.
    • A working wireless router or Access Point with one available RJ45 port
    • RJ-45 UTP/TP Ethernet LAN Cable
    • The Encore Router is set to factory default. If your Encore Router is brand new and just pulled out of the box, no need to reset. If changes were made to any settings to the Encore Router before, make sure you "hardware reset" the Encore Router to the factory default settings. Check the User's Manual on how to "hardware reset" the router.

    PROCEDURES:
    1. Hooking up hardware connections:

    1. Both PC or Laptop and the Encore Router should be turned-on.
    2. Disable the wireless client from your PC or laptop computer (if not done so)
    3. Connect the Ethernet cable to the PC or laptop computer and the Encore Router. (This can be done while PC computer and router are turned on.)
    2. Switching mode from AP Mode to Repeater Mode
    1. Using your computer's web browser such as Internet Explorer or Safari Firefox, enter 192.168.0.1 to the address field then hit enter. You should see the Encore Router's User Interface screen still in the AP Router Mode
    2. On the upper right corner of the user interface menu, click on the drop down menu and select "Repeater Mode". Click the "OK" button to the warning box. Wait around 35 seconds until your screen comes back to Encore user interface screen, this time the screen is now in the Repeater Mode. If for some reason you were asked by the repeater to enter the username and password, enter the default username and password (admin/admin) and your Encore Router is now in Repeater Mode.

    NOTE:
    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:

    1. As soon as the Encore Router switched to the Repeater Mode, you should be able to see the same Utility Screen with fewer selections on the left pane.
    2. From the Main Menu screen click on "Wireless" located on the left pane.
    3. Click on "Site Survey" button, a new Window dialogue box will pop up showing a list of Access Points reachable by your Repeater
    4. Check your existing network's access point SSID then click on the radio button that corresponds to your access point router then click "Connect" button.(If you can't find your existing AP router, click on "Refresh" repeatedly until your access point show up, or your location is too far from your existing AP router).
    5. Click on the "Encryption" drop down menu, select your existing access point wireless security, enter your existing router's wireless security key or passphrase then click "Apply". If you get a FAILED message, repeat this procedure again, a wireless hiccup might be interfering, otherwise you now have a working Repeater.
    6. Check your repeater connection by going to your internet browser and open a web page of your choice. If successful your new wireless repeater is working.
    7. Disconnect the Ethernet cable and setup your computer back to its original wireless settings. At this stage, the Repeater is now invisible to any wireless client computers. When connecting a new wireless client within the repeater's wireless range the process is the same as there is no Repeater device at all, the SSID of the wireless router will just be extended in range around where the Repeater is physically located.
    4. Connect your remote wireless client to your wireless router
    1. Using your wireless client utility program, look for your existing router's SSID and connects to it, if this is a new client you will be prompted with the wireless security key. Your repeater is invisible to all wireless clients. All it does is to repeat the wireless router signal as it is to extend its range. Once you have converted the Encore Router to Repeater and successfully connected to your existing router there will be no more configuration needed to the repeater. If you happen to see two identical SSID's of your existing router, this means your wireless client is within the same range of your existing router and the new wireless repeater, then your client don't need the repeater's service.

    NOTE:
    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.>

    NOTE:
    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:

    1. Disable wireless connection or turn off wireless in the client PC computer
    2. Connect Ethernet network cable to the RJ-45 port of the client PC computer
    3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports of the repeater.
    4. From your computer, set the network card IP address to Static IP Address entering 192.168.0.102, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, leave the rest as blank.
    5. Open IE or Internet explorer or any other web browser software and run 192.168.0.1, you should be able to see the Encore Repeater user interface screen. (Changing any settings in the repeater may affect its performance)
    That should help :)

    Could you connect to the network when hard wired? If not then check the D-link and make sure the LAN set up is correct. If you could then you know the problem is with the wifi only.

    When to look under Device Manager does it show that the wireless adapter is working?

    Do you see any other networks available? If so you have a mismatch between your router set up and your computer network settings.

    Go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS, Right Click on Wireless connections, PROPERTIES. Look to see if Microsoft Client, File and Printer Sharing, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP 4) is checked. Then click on TCP/IP , PROPERTIES and look at the settings. The GATEWAY must be the same IP as your D-Link, The default IP for the router is 192.168.0.50. If it was set up with a different IP address make sure the wifi gateway is that same address.

    If you put in a "KEY" when setting up the wireless router, WEP or WAP make sure you use same when trying to get on the network. You won't get that far if you're not seeing the network on list at all.


    Try setting the machine in the same room with the D-Link. Will it detect the network now? If so consider interference with the signal ie metal in the wall such as a furnace.

    These are the most common reasons for problems so try these first.

    What model access point are you trying to get it to connect to?
    On the EOC-1650, go to the Wireless Network page and click the Site Survey button. This should show you all the APs that are visible to the unit. If you don't see any, either the radio in your 1650 is blown, or your AP isn't set up correctly (to determine which, get close to your AP with your PC and see if it shows up on your PC's wireless screen). If you do see the AP, click the BSSID value to attempt to connect to the AP. The error message, if any, will tell you where to look for your connection problem (password, encryption type, etc.)

    How to setup internet between 2 EnGenius EOC-2610 devices?


    Thanks for a very thorough problem report. It's a little ambiguous near the end, though, so I will have to restate what I think I understand you are saying.
    You are saying that you have your internet connection and AP in one building, and two devices or PCs in that building can access the internet and share files (though you don't specify if they are using the EOC-2610 access point or are just accessing the router in some other fashion). But you have a remote building where there is one PC and one EOC-2610 in Client Bridge mode, and although both EOC-2610 units seem to be communicating with each other, the PC will not communicate with anything. (I presume you have inspected the access point's configuration screens and verified that it does have the other EOC-2610 listed as a connected client.)
    First, the PC in the remote building has to be connected to the Client Bridge EOC-2610 by its ethernet cable in order to access the network. Second, the PC in the remote building has to have a valid IP address in the range 192.168.0.0/24, or it won't communicate with anything. If you are relying on your router's DHCP to assign your PC an IP address, verify that this has happened by examining your PC network properties. If you are assigning all IP addresses manually, make sure you have assigned the PC an address, and one that doesn't duplicate some other device.
    Sometimes failure to specify DNS servers appears to be a lack of communication with the network. Open a browser and type 66.70.119.204 in the URL bar. If you get to fixya.com, you have a good network connection. If you type fixya.com in the URL bar and can't get the same result, you need to define DNS servers on the PC (or inside your router).

    The company will have to set you up on some sort of a VPN network. Either shoftware on the computer or a hardware VPN from your house to their offices. I would speak with their administrator, as this will all have to be controlled from their end.

    AP Mode Problems


    Probably you have to learn that there are various people looking for an access of the internet through your facilities. Anyway, inorder to solve your problem these are the following recommendation I made just for you. Hope this will be helpful.

    PHASE I
    1.) How do I reset the EOC-3220 / EOC-3220 EXT / EOC-3220+ back to factory default settings? An RS-232 null modem serial cable is required for this procedure.
    (where to buy it : http://www.keenansystems.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=3&products_id=221)

    1. Connect the EOC-3220 to your computer with a null modem serial cable.

    2. Start a HyperTerminal session: Click Start and then select Programs -> Accessories -> Communications -> HyperTerminal.

    3. After the HyperTerminal window appears:
    a. Give this new connection a name. Ex: EOC-3220.
    b. Select correct COM port. Ex:COM1.
    c. Set baud rate as "38400", data bits "8", parity "none", stop bits "1", and flow control as "None". Then press “OK” to bring up the HyperTerminal window.

    4. Wait until the "#" is displayed in the HyperTerminal window.

    5. Type "flash reset", then hit enter.

    6. Type "reboot", then hit enter. After the device reboots, all settings will be at factory default.

    Phase II

    1.) Since that you already reseted the AP you need to use the default IP which is 192.168.1.1 user: admin password: admin

    2.) Make it sure you need to use different IP such as 72.10.251.xxx and the subnet: 255.255.255.xxx

    3.) The idea of configuration in come from your own desire which was no body can no longer try to match your network IP so that there will be no body access your AP anymore without your knowledge.

    4.) You need to make you SSID invisible to everyone inorder no body no longer able to reach your SSID by setting up basic setting which is transparent to everyone.

    5) And lastly change the default user and password of your AP.

    Good Luck
