Configuring a 3COM 3CRWDR200A-75 router as a repeater


SETTING A ROUTER AS A REPEATER 1. Connect your computer to the repeater router's RJ45 port with 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), 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.

How to change security setting to secure


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. These settings prevents unauthorized access to your wireless network and Internet. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Hi,

I do not recommend that you use WEP for security as this is no longer a secure method for wireless network.

Hi,


It seems you're setting up a wireless network thru your router. The basic steps in setting-up a wireless connection applies to all brands of routers. Most softwares provided by manufacturers, both computers and routers, cause problems with Windows due to incompatibility issues. As of the moment, we need to use the Wireless Zero Configuration or the Windows Wireless Manager that comes with all versions of Windows.


Click the link below for proper cable connections in setting up your wireless network. This also provides somewhat a checklist on what you need for wireless connectivity.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx


Then, configure your wireless connection. The following links provides the step by step instructions for each version of Windows:

Windows XP. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true

Windows Vista. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Setting-up-a-wireless-network

Windows 7. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Setting-up-a-wireless-network


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

You can, in most cases, connect a Wireless router to your POS and let your provider know the MAC address of the device and then go from there for setting up your network. If you don't wish to replace your current router you can connect the wireless router to the current LAN router and establish a wireless network from there. Make sure you set up WEP or WPA security on your Wireless network to keep other people from hacking or using it without your knowledge. This is normally the only requirement Service Providers place users establishing a wireless network.

Setting up wireless router


If you plan on only using the wireless router once it's set up, you may as well get rid of the wired one right now. You can easily set up the wireless router while the wired is still running (plug your computer directly into the wireless router), but you don't need it. If you have a lot of settings you need to move over (port forwarding, QoS rules, etc.), open those configuration pages of your wired router in new browser windows so when you turn it off, you can see all your settings and copy them to your wireless router.
