It is a relatively simple process to use the router as an access point. Follow these procedures:

1. Assuming the router is still at the default settings, connect the router to your computer using a patch cable from your computer to any of the lan ports on your new router, then enter in your browser's url window and press enter (your computer must be setup to pick up ip addresses automatically). You might need to restart your computer.
2. enter admin for both user name and password in the router's logon window
3. click on network on the left and then select lan
4. enter a new unique ip address for the router that is the same as your local network (e.g. if your local ip is then enter
5. make sure the subnet is the same as your local network (e.g.
6. disable DHCP on the router and click on Apply
Now connect the router to your network using a patch cable from your existing router to any of the lan ports on the new router. Connect your computer to the network. Thats it, you are done.

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.


    • 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.>

    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, Subnet Mask, leave the rest as blank.
    5. Open IE or Internet explorer or any other web browser software and run, 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 :)

    The Network Key you're probably asking for is on a sticker located, underneath the router. Can you check?

    Here's a way to configure your router for your existing network (assuming you already have one) :

    If you have an existing network, chances are you have already configured network services on the network. In this case, you would use the router as a pure Access Point to extend the range of your network by allowing more attachment of wireless and wired computers. You MUST also turn off the DHCP server on the router if there is a DHCP server running to avoid IP address conflict.

    To configure the router as an Access Point with the DHCP server disabled:

    1. Open your web browser and go to http://my.router, (or the default address

    2. Click the Basic Settings tab on the top navigation bar.

    3. Select Access Point Mode.

    4. Click the Next button.

    5. Click OK to dismiss the DHCP disabled message box (The DHCP server will be disabled in Access Point Mode by default).

    6. Click the Advanced Settings tab on the top navigation bar.

    7. Click the Advanced IP Settings tab on the left navigation bar.

    8. Assign an IP address to the Wireless Broadband Router.

      note.gif NOTE: The IP address should be reserved by the DHCP server. The Wireless Broadband Router cannot act as a DHCP client, therefore, it needs a static IP address for its LAN interface.

    9. Click the Submit button.

    10. Click the Save & Restart button.

    11. Note the status bar at the bottom of the screen.

    12. While the Wireless Broadband Router resets, the Power light on the front of the unit blinks.

    13. When your web browser returns to the main page of the Wireless Broadband Route, the device has successfully restarted with the new settings.
      note.gif NOTE: The main page may not return if you have changed IP address of the router in Step 8. To view the main page, type the new IP address of the router in the web browser to access it.

    14. Plug an Ethernet cable from the existing local network into any LAN port on the Wireless Broadband Router.

    WRT120N Linksys router will not connect to Vizio Wireless Blue Ray Player. Need to lower the security to connect to Blue Ray Player.

    If anything it's the other way around; the blue ray player needs to connect to the wireless router / access point. Can the blue ray player be configured to work with a WEP/WPA/WPA2 secured network? Check the owner manual or go through the setup menus to see if there's a way to set up a new wireless network and configure the password for your wireless network on the blueray player. The other thing to check is to see if the router is filtering based on MAC address. You can probably disable that feature without losing much security since MAC addresses are easily spoofed.

    Some routers won't allow wireless repeating (which I think is what you are trying to do). Some powerline adapters would be the easiest way to solve this as they work through your electrical cables. Plug one in where you already have a network connection and the other where you want it. You can then connect the cable to the N300 (provided it has multiple ethernet ports) and then connect the rest of your devices to the remaining ports. You'll need to do some googling to configure the router correctly.

    I bought the Samsung BD-C7900 yesterday and had same problem. All I had to do was go to the home page of my router and change security method. Connected immediately and then you can set the security back to the way you want it. Make sure you use the small letters or caps exactly the way your security code is typed in.

    Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.

    To Configure the Router with Internet Access
    Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
    1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
    2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
    3. Reboot the PC.
    4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
    5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
    6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to
    7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
    8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL:
    9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
    This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
    • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
    • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
    1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
      • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
      • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
    2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
    3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
    4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
    a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
    b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

    Can I use a D-Link DI 634M as an access point?

    Sure you can! As you can with any wireless router pretty much.

    1. Assign the new router (AP) to an IP on your subnet that's not your existing router's IP... i.e.
    2. Disable the DHCP server on the "AP"
    3. Create a new wireless network on the "AP"
    4. Plug your existing network/router into a LAN port


    Voila! You have an access point!

    Wireless network connection problem

    Ok with a peripheral on USB or on PC card bay you can try to connect to a Wireless lan:
    Please check this tip on the subject
    To connect to an existing WLAN you must be sure your wireless card is working: I assume you installed all the related sw coming with the wlan card.
    Using the card installed driver check card is enabled and running (in Control Panel/Network connection should be visible and enabled)
    Then you can connect to an open Wi-Fi HOTSPOT or to your WLAN you configure with a router connected to your internet modem.
    1. To connect to an existing HOTSPOT: find a location where you know a wi-fi access point (HOTSPOT) is active: Internet cafe,, library, airport,, station, hotel etc.your card should be able to find the existing network when you select "show existing network" in wlan driver. Connect if network is "unsecure" (= no password or key is required) or ask for password if you can get it for a fee (hotel)
    2. To connect to your home or office WLAN be sure to use a router (or access point) with same standard of your card (802-11G or B or A or N) with same security protocol (WEP or WPA) and configure your router Internet access BEFORE wireless access. Connect your PC to your router using a LAN cable and be sure you can browse through the router.(contact your ISP for router specs if you need it: PPOA/E and other). Follow the tip and your router doc for settings
