One thing to remember when using 6 units is that:, Your Wireless throughput is cut approximately in half for each WDS repeating "hop", i.e. an AP that data flows through before hitting the wired network. This is because all transmissions use the same channel and radio and must be retransmitted to reach the wired LAN.

Why doesn't my netgear extender ask for name and password when I try to use it to connect to internet. It tells me that there is an authentication problem


Hi there! smile.gif Please note that the Tenda 150mbps Wireless Range Extender A3 uses a default IP address of 192.168.0.254 - you must set your IP address to the 192.168.0.* range (* = any number between 2 and 253) to login.

The default access username / password (if required) are admin and admin.

Once you've logged in, you can configure the access point to route through your existing wireless router as the default gateway (eg. if your wifi router is 192.168.1.1, then you would route through that, and set your Repeater (Extender) IP to 192.168.1.2 so that you can connect to it and then "relay" your connection through the repeater. It doesn't mirror the connection details for the existing wifi router, it simply creates an "additional" access point to connect through to your existing wifi router - creating a bridge, essentially.

The extender can be linked to the existing wifi router via LAN cable or WDS. For WDS, you will need to set the IP's 1 digit apart in the last segment (see above IP difference), and switch them both in the Wireless menu to ""Wireless Networking Mode: Network Bridge (WDS), but the SSID must remain the same (eg. "Tenda1") for both of them (it doesn't cause a network loopback), and any wireless security authentication must be identical (password / pass phrase / key + encryption algorithm) on both devices. Again, as with the above point, remember to set the gateway of the extender / repeater to that of the primary WiFi router.

I am configuring a engenius eoc-3610 with wds on a wrv210 cisco wireless router but the internet once setup is very slow.


Every node added to a WDS network cuts the network transmission speed in half. This is just a characteristic of any WDS connection, as WDS is a repeater protocol (it has to retransmit everything it receives).
It's not clear from your description whether you are trying to add the EOC and the Cisco to the same WDS network. If that is the case, it's a wonder you got it to work at all, since WDS implementations are model-specific, and usually require every node to be exactly the same model router.

WDS Setup


In a WDS network, all the access points need to be in WDS mode, and one of them needs to be wired directly to a routed internet connection.
Here is a very good detailed tutorial on how WDS works and how to configure and troubleshoot your own WDS network:

Use the internal antenna, not the stick antenna, and point it directly at where your home router is. Set your PC to the hardcoded IP address 192.168.1.5, and browse to 192.168.1.1. Configure the 1650 into Bridge mode. (At this point, you may need to rebrowse to 192.168.1.2.) In the Wireless section, set it to look for the name (SSID) of your home router, and provide it with any WEP or WPA password needed to connect to your home router. In the TCP section, set it to accept an IP address from your home router via DHCP. Reboot the unit and set your PC to accept IP addresses from DHCP. You should receive an address from your home router and be able to use your home network.
The cable from the 1650 can attach to only one device, obviously. To get your other devices online, you will have to buy an (inexpensive) 10/100 ethernet switch and attach all the cables (including the one to the 1650) through it. That will serve all your devices.

How do i hook up one router to get a signal from another one


You can set up a sort of siamese-twinning of routers to share a WAN connection through the use of what is called WDS. Information on how this works can be found here:http://www.keenansystems.com/newug/bblog/?postid=17.However, WDS slows down your internet connection by half, works only over relatively short distances, and doesn't work between different brands and models of router.A better general solution to setting up a point-to-point connection (example: to extend your wireless network from your house to an outbuilding workshop) uses a bridge instead of a second router. A router is an access point, while a bridge is like a more powerful version of the wireless card in your computer. Engenius makes relatively inexpensive indoor/outdoor bridge units (such as the model 1650). Since they are directional, you can point them directly at the house and extend your network over very long distances with very little power.

Confirguration


Hi,

After installing the hardware and physical mounting, basic configuration is something like below:

1. Set your computers TCP/IP address temporarily to be a static IP address such as 192.168.1.5;
2. Open your browser and type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. The EnGenius password prompt should appear. The default user is admin and the password is also admin. The control interface should now be accessible;
3. Under the Wireless heading click on Site Survey. This will display all the access points in your area. Your ISP or to whatever WiFi network you would want to connect should be listed in the ‘Wireless Site Survey’. Select the access point with the highest signal level or your choice. Click ‘Connect’;
4. After clicking ‘connect’, it should confirm that the EnGenius has connected successfully;
5. Click Ok and it will take you back to the list of wireless site surveys;
6. To confirm that the SSID has been changed go to the ‘Wireless Basic Settings’ page which is in the Wireless submenu in the left side bar. Once on the wireless page go to the box with SSID. The value should read "Your ISP or the WiFi network you would want to connect"; this has to be exact and case-sensitive to connect successfully.

This is just the start, all settings are configurable and actually depends as to how you would want to use the device; as a WiFi Access Point, as a client router mode or Wireless outdoor bridges in WDS mode.

After all settings have been changed to your requirement(s), go back to the PC's control panel and your network connections, and change your TCP/IP address back to DHCP settings (obtaining an IP address automatically). panel window.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
