Question about Belkin F5D7132 Repeater

1 Answer

I have a wireless range extender (F5D7132. I can get it to connect to my ISP supplied router (DLink - 2740R) and everything works fine... except From time to time (several times each day) the searching lamp starts flashing and I lose the connection through that box. The network name is still visible in the wireless connection screen, but no internet is possible. (If I move close enough to the router so that is the conneciton it is fine). Most times, the only way can get out of this is to restart the repeater. I suspect I momentarily lose the Broadband connection in my router and the repeater fails to restore it through itself. Is there anyway of having the repeater reconnect automatically when the signal is dropped?

Not really, you see this and all routers have special circuitry, that monitors line integrity, and WiFi integrity too, now as long as they fall inside preset parameters, they will, be fine, but if, the system, "Detects" what it feels is something that will compromise integrity of the system, it has no option, but to "Reset" itself, back to a "Know Good". the only way to achieve this is to do this, then it can re-negotiate everything, and start afresh as it were. Now this "Cause" may be line interference, WiFi Interference, a Program, error, a "Read" error, a "Write" error, a Memory Location error. This list can go on. It is inconceivable to think, that each day, we are going to be able to run all our equipment, faultlessly all the time, as it can, and does, fault..so unless, you can lessen, or mitigate any, and all of those things that can cause the problems, this will always happen to a greater or lesser degree depending on protection, to the cause. Like line filters, getting a graded line, circuit, shielding the WiFi, ensuring a good signal, antenna placement etc.
Also ensure that the Windows Service, Zero configuration utility, is turned off and disabled from starting up at boot time. Also ensure DHCP is off too. on each Router client, too.
START>>RUN>>services.msc (enter) When services window comes up, scroll down to each, stop, set to disable, and back out, reboot.

Try moving your laptop closer to the range extender. If it connects then you know the range extender isn't extending the signal enough. So then either move laptop or maybe extender.

I just conected my DI-524 with a new cable modem


The first question is whether your change of service provider really has any connection with your new lack of range. If your new cable modem contains a wireless router, it's possible it is interfering with your old router. You only need one, so in that case you should remove your DLink and configure your wireless cable router to your satisfaction. Otherwise, you may have coincidentally picked up a new source of interference; you may want to change the channel on your DLink router to see if that improves your range. The third possibility is that your DLink radio is going sour with age -- it happens -- and may simply need replacement.

You will need to get hold of a Belkin Wireless G Universal Range Extender relays the signals of your wireless network and extends its range model number F5D7132 from PC world or another online dealer.

You will still need the wireless router as the central connection point, using the booster your network now reaches further I have one at the top of the stairs with the Router downstairs to I can browser wirelessly in the loft conversion of my old house

WAP connecting to another WAP


On the D-Link WAN page, change IP Address to static and give it an address about 30 away from both the Hawking and the Linksys. On the DHCP page, disable DHCP.

In a multiple router network such as yours, you can only have ONE real router. The others have to be disabled as routers. Disable thier DHCP and give them static addresses that are all at leat 10? or more from each other. Wireless should all be the same setup. The on;y exception is the SSID which can be slightly different to know which wireless you are on.

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.
