    Mine has worked properly with 54mbps and excellent signal for 10 months, despite it always has a 15 minutes delay before we get internet signal. Recently it stops working. I have excellent signal but no IP address. I have also changed the channel, reset and still can't get it working at the same plug again. However, when I plug it closer to the router, it works

    . But if I am close to the router, I don't need the plug. Would be grateful if someone can help.

Wish to set up O2 home broadband router model2 to act as a repeater for model4 O2 router to increase range


You need to configure your router with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. Then configure it in repeater mode enable wireless too.Then save settings and restart router. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

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


SETTING A ROUTER AS A REPEATER
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 192.168.0.1
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 192.168.1.1 then the repeater router should use a higher number (ie. 10 or higher), such as 192.168.1.10 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.

192.168.0.30 for DWL G710 does not respond


hi r_raiche

1. Take a regular ethernet cable and plug it into the ethernet port of your computer

2. Plug the other end into ethernet port of the DWL-710

3. On your computer (assuming you have Windows XP Pro with the NON-classic start menu), go to Start > My Network Places

4. On the top left under "Network Tasks" click on "View Network Connections"

5. Right click on "Local Area Connection" and then down to "Properties"

6. A pop-up window with 3 tabs should come up. Under the "General" tab, there is a list of icons with checkmarks next to them. Highlight the "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" on and click the "Properties" button underneath

7. Tick "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

8. Click on "OK" then "OK" again

9. Open up Firefox (or IE) and type 192.168.0.30 into the URL field

10. Type in the default username and password

How to Change DWL-G710 IP address


in your case, you only need to change the range expander's IP address from 192.168.0.30 to 192.168.1.30

to do this, you need to connect a computer's LAN cable directly to the range expander's LAN port. when both devices are powered ON, then access the initial IP address http://192.168.0.30

when you are in the web interface, click the LAN button and enter the suggested ip under the IP text box: 192.168.1.30 see figure below.

when you already set the IP, click on APPLY. then you are good to go. You can then connect the router, then connect the range expander to one of the router's port, then computers.

Need to change IP address for this or my Actiontec router


Take each thing seperately, in other words connect them directly to your computer first. Normally only 1 thing on a network should be a DHCP Server. But often a router will have a WAN port and and another router will be plugged into that. In that case the "another router" can run DHCP and will assign that to 1st router. 1st router now knows how to get to "another router" (2nd router). Which should allow you to get to it from 2nd router.

You can't talk to another /24 network if your computer is not on that /24 (aka Class C - 255.255.255.0). The 1st three octets have to match. Unless ... there is a router inbetween your computer and "another /24 network" - that is on both /24 networks. In that latter case that router inbetween has the route to the "another /24 network" and can get you there.

To configure router gear where DHCP isn't working plug directly into it on ethernet switch or LAN port. Knowing it's IP Address you have to manually configure your computer (take it off of Automatically) to match the 1st three Octets (1st three of the dotted decimal numbers) and with a 4th octet in the range 1-254, because .255 is the broadcast address. Make sure you pick a 4th octet that is not in use to your best knowledge. Not the ip of the router, or anything else that you are aware of on the network range. I usually pick .10 because normally nothing is on the lower end of a dhcp range.

Anyway hooked up directly and manually IP address set, you should be able to go about changing IP Address of a router or access point. Keep in mind if you change it outside of the /24 subnet you and it WERE IN that you will lose access to it again. And will have to change your manually configured IP Address again. Or go back to automatic - if you have now also enable DHCP on that router device.

Note that for an access point (range extender?) it doesn't usually matter that it is on a seperate /24 network ... as it doesn't operate at Layer 3 (Network, IP Addresses and such) anyway. It just switches Ethernet / Wireless Ethernet frames anyway - all of the IP stuff just transparently passes through it. You probably get DHCP from your 1.1 router ... and talk the local network and Internet just fine. You could use the above MANUAL IP method whenever you want to look in the wireless access point. But unless it's broken / not working, you shouldn't have to. Access Points normally don't do any routing at the IP level and don't run DHCP - so all of that simply doesn't matter. Of course you might like it on the same network range (/24) as your other router for ease of maintenance. Just don't plug into a WAN port, plug into a Switch/LAN port on your main router.

Hello,

You can connect your expander to your PC via ethernet cable and then assign a static IP address on your PC.

To assign a static IP address, just double-click on the monitor icon on the lower right hand corner of your PC and then view status and go to properties. Look for TCP/IP v4 and click properties.

Select use the following IP address:

192.168.1.2
255.255.255.0

and then click OK.

After successfully assigning an IP address to your PC, let's test the connectivity by going to command prompt.

Go to Start>Run>and then type cmd and hit Enter.
Once you're on the black screen type ping 192.168.1.240.
If you get replies then your good to go...

Let's now access the Web UI of the you Wireless expander.
Open a browser and then type on the address bar 192.168.1.240 and then hit enter.

It will prompt you with WRE54G's username and password. Just type the password to login to the Web UI. The default password is admin.

Once your on the Setup page, you have to configure your settings exactly the same as your wireless router (e.g. wireless security, IP address range) except for the SSID. You may want to change the SSID on your WRE54G for you to easily identify where your wireless computer is connected.

You can leave the WRE54G's IP address to 192.168.1.240 if your wireless router's IP address is on the same range like 192.168.1.x

Then on the Gateway address type your router's IP address. If you're also using Linksys the default IP address usually is 192.168.1.1

Then you can configure your wireless settings same as your router. After that, same the settings and see if the light on the WRE54G becomes BLUE. If yes, then you're good to go! You can unplug the PC from the WRE54G and then set your PC's IP address back to Obtain an IP Address Automatically. See static IP address procedure above.

My laptop can't find the SSID


HI all, A couple months have passed since I posted this problem. I found my own answer after weeks of asking for help. The hawking Reg 1 repeater. Here's the answer. THE REG1 REPEATER ONLY WORKS WORKS WITH ROUTERS THAT OPERATE IN WDS MODE. Not all routers can. Check to seeif the router you are extending is capable of this mode. I tried 2 differnet routers, neither worked. Finally when I got one that spoke WDS. It worked like a dream. Why did the directions not say that!!!!!

Try using a crossover cable, this is special ethernet cable where the internal wires cross, this is needed for router to router or computer to computer. These can be purchased at any electronics store, or if you have an extra cable follow this link for a how to make one yourself. http://www.makeitsimple.com/how-to/dyi_crossover.htm Good Luck
