Yes there is a way to extend the range. it involves flashing a 3rd party firmware into your router. another way is to buy better antennas for it. radio shack has a pair for your router that are made by gigaware that will add 7dBi to your range. That is an easier solution. if your want to try flashing your router (my personal favorite way), then let me know and i will walk you through on how to do it. ; )

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

How to setup up for repeater mode


This particular Hawking device must be configured after it is connected to your LAN and powered up.

Before you can do this, you will need the software from Hawking. If your devices Serial Number begins with HEMCHWREN1 use the link below"

http://hawkingtech.com/products/downloadfile/114.html

If you have a Revision 1 device with a Serial Number begins with HEMCREN1R1 use this link:

http://hawkingtech.com/products/downloadfile/117.html

Once you have the software, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Connect the A/C power adapter to an
    electrical source, and then connect it to the
    'Power' socket of the Range Extender.
  2. Connect your Range Extender to a LAN
    port on the Router or AP that you would
    like to extend (repeat) the range on.
  3. Connect your PC to any of the LAN ports
    located on the back of your router/AP.
  4. Now run the appropriate program you obtained from the instructions in the beginning of the answer.

When the auto-load page appears, click the Setup Wizard option on the right and follow the Setup directions.

Scan for your Range Extender by clicking the 'Search' button. Once found, click the device to highlight it and click 'Next".

Choose a name for your Range Extender. You will use this name to identify and connect to your extended network. Optionally, you may change your login username and password. Click 'Next'.

At this point, the Setup Wizard should automatically obtain a new IP address for your Range Extender from the Router. Please wait for this IP to generate into the IP address field. Note the new IP address and click 'Next' to continue.

In the Search box, find the Wireless Network that you would like to extend. This Range Extender works best with other wireless-N networks, but also supports wireless-B and G networks as well. Select your preferred network and then click 'Next'.

For Security Settings, you must make sure that the Range Extender's security settings are identical to that of the Router/AP that is having the signal extended. If you do not know these settings please contact your network administrator.

At this point the Setup Summary displays all configured settings of the Range Extender. If the information displayed corresponds to your desired networks settings, you can go ahead and click 'SET' to apply the settings. The HWREN1 will automatically reboot. Please be patient.

How do I extend wireless coverage?


Extend the range of WiFi signals with Hardware If your router is placed on the ground floor of your home, the Wi-Fi signals will be very weak or may not even reach the basement computer or the printer upstairs. The situation will be no different if you work in a fairly large premises or if there are too many walls in the area.
In that case, here are some hardware device that you can consider to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi network:
wifi_repeater_thumb.jpgOption #1. You can attach a WiFi Repeater (also known as Wireless Range Expander) to your router and quickly expand the coverage of your wireless network without using any cables.
The Repeater should be placed within the range of your existing router and it will reflect the signals to other areas where the wireless reception was earlier poor (or totally absent). The Repeater can connect wirelessly to both routers and access points (see #3 below).
Option #2. (This is my current setup) You can get another wireless router and connect it to your existing router using an Ethernet cable. The advantage is that this setup comes pretty cheap and the Internet speed stays almost the same even for computers that are accessing the web via the new router.
You can get a 100 feet long Ethernet Cable (also known as Cat5 or LAN or RJ45 cable) for less than $10 and wireless routers start at $20. Here's a detailed guide on how you can connect two routers together.
Option #3. You also have the option to use an Access Point instead of a router to extend the WiFi range but that's often not required because Wireless Access Points can be more expensive than equivalent routers.
The other advantage with a router is that is has extra LAN ports so, in future, you can connect more wired computers for sharing files or you Internet connection.
Option #4. If you have an old desktop or laptop computer, you should consider adding an external (USB based) wireless adapter or upgrade the internal network card to improve the wireless reception (and thus Internet speed).

How to use the range extender


For Belkin Range Extender, it will depend on how you are going to use it. If you are going to use as a "Wireless Range Extender", there is a push button on the device that will allow it to find wireless signals and configure itself with the wireless settings of the original access point on your network.

If you're going to use is as a "Wireless Access Point" you just simply need to plug it in to your wired router or switch.

Using a dlink extender


I'm assuming you mean a wrt54g, if that's the case look on the bottom of the router and see what version it is. If you have a ver. 1, 2, 3, or 4 then you don't need an extender. you can flash a 3rd party firmware into that router and turn it into a super router. If you are interested, then leave a comment and i will tell you how to do this. An extender will just cut your broadband speed in half so I would avoid that if possible. Let me know.
