    Still having the problem as the gateway address doesn't seem to be working. I'm using or but neither seems to be correct. As you may gather my technical knowledge isn't great!

    HWREG1 setup says that the access point is 'out of reach' or that the passphrase is incorrect. Both is not true, I can't see why it is not connecting.Odd, because it did work before.

I have a similar problem.
I setup the extender with an IP that doesn't conflict with the main router (a Netgear DG834GT).
I have MAC address filtering setup; the extender has permission to access the Netgear, and vice-versa, yet when I eventually save all the settings, my PC's can connect to the Hawking, BUT and this is the major problem - as soon as I enable these settings on the Hawking it causes my router to reboot repeatedly as if there's a conflict.

I can't see why. The IP addresses are different, both have access to each other MAC address wise, same subnet. Any ideas - please help!

The problem might be that you have good connection to the router but having connection trouble between your router and the internet.
Try accessing your router by typing your Gateway into the address field of the web browser of your choice.
Then click on WAN (Wide Area Network) and check your external IP Address. Beside it you will find a button that says "Renew".
The loss of connection might be the result of poor router configuration, bad cable connection or ISP (Internet Service Provider) connectivity trouble.

How do you change limited internet access to full access

Limited access usually means you have full access to your network through your hotspot, but the hotspot is not connected to the internet or it cannot get a signal.

Im trying to connect my wii to the internet at my new house and it won't it keeps saying unable to find access point. please confirm the ssid and try again?

I'll advise briefly, but suggest you find the router page address (something like You can find this by looking in the manual for the router. You can also double click to open the router and then "open device webpage"

This will allow you to access the router settings and configure the wireless protocols and passwords / security. Without knowing which router you are using, I cannot give specific help.

You need to ensure that the wireless password that you set in the router is typed EXACTLY into the network connection on your PC / laptop

My wireless network connection status in connected speed is11.0 and my signal strength is good but I cannot connect to the internet

Are you running any Internet Security software such as Norton? Also make sure your wireless router is actually connected to the Internet, just because your laptop is connected to the router doesn't mean the router is connected to the internet.

If you can, plug your laptop in to the router via an ethernet cable to make sure Internet access is working, alternatively if you have another computer connected to the router check the internet access on that one.

Also try doing a soft reset on the router, just disconnect from the power for about 30 seconds, reconnect, wait one minute then try again.

The computer says that I am connected but only "local" and cannot actually connect

That message usually means that a signal is very weak.

If your router is nearby (and not through many walls), there is a problem with your router and/or network signal.

Reset your router and if still a problem, contact your provider.

Hope this helps.

Have a wireless connection, says it's connected but no internet

Go into the properties of the connection and see what it says if there is an error or whatever.
Also when you find a signal it will be secure and you need a password to login.
Sometimes it connects but it will actually be limited to no connection.
You can also go to the
start button
then click on run
then type in that box
Hit the enter key.
Then type in the box that comes up
Hit enter
See if it comes up with a ip.
If not then type
ipconfig /renew
Then hit enter
If it does a hold and a ip don't come up that means it don't have a good connection and that's why you can't get on the net
Hope this helps
Happy Holidays

"Local Access Only"

You need to look on the back of your router and find the small reset button. Push it and everything should reconfigure. If not Go into your device manager and see if you can find something called a NIC card or Network Interface Card, or something called an Ethernet card, if those are not listed, it means your driver has been deleted somehow. You can go to the manufacturers website and download a new driver.
