Question about Hawking HWREG1 Repeater

Local Only Laptop is finding a good signal but most of the time comes up saying "Connected to the Intertnet Local Only" meaning you can'y actually access the internet. Any tips as to why and how to fix it? Thanks

    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.

Netgear wn2000 states mover closer to router?

This message means your extender is too far away from your wireless router to make a good connection. Repeaters must be within a good signal range for the connection to work properly.

If you have a wifi enabled phone, tablet, or laptop, you can walk around your home and see where the signal reaches and how well. Repeaters should be placed where you still receive full or close to full signal.

Repeaters may have issues if the wireless router is on another floor, behind metal, or too far away.

Why can't i connect to

okay, nevermind throwing out the old router...we have a great new one, industrial strength! And we still have not dead zones, but not fully powered you can use the really works well, (even on not so strong wireless routers) once you get it set up that is...a little frustrating to say the least, it's not exactly plug and play, at least it wasn't for us.
Make sure you start by resetting to factory settings, just in case...get paper clip, unfold, stick one end into the reset hole for 6 seconds. Okay, now plug in...wait for the power light to come on first it is orange and then green. okay, now go to any computer or tablet...(you have to have a router that is wireless capable running of course) search for networks should see your regular router SSID (name here) now there should also be one called NETGEAR_EXT, that is the extender. double click on should ask you for username and password, well, is asking you for it which for the factory reset extender, should be admin for the username, and password for the password. It will ask you for the very same thing on the next screen! And you insist...type in admin for username, and the word password for the password, just like before you have to punch in the same info twice, on two different screens...and then presto! The extender control/info screen comes up! This is where you want to be! Now you have to fill in the information, and your hard work will be rewarded, the extender will be connected to the router (once you fill in the ACTUAL username for the router, and the password...what you would normally fill in for the actual router)
Then the extender will get the name of (yourROUTERNAME_EXT) happens is all good. Just be patient and let the screen apply the settings. When finished, look for networks to connect to, you will see yourROUTERNAME_EXT in the list. This means that now your wireless device can talk to the extender, which talks to the router. All three lights will be solid green (not flashing) on the extender.

Cannot access Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G) from my PC using the IP address I have tried to reset the expander multiple times and still not able to access.

If you're connected to the expander then go start-run type "cmd" and hit enter, then in the black box that opens up type "ipconfig" and hit enter, the line that says default gateway will be the IP address of the expander.
Otherwise there should have been a cd with it that has a utility that scans the network looking for it, I know netgear do one but I'm not sure about Linksys. Let me know how you get on.

The actual max distance of the range expander is about 50 feet, and sorry to say but it cannot bounce the wireless signal from it on a wall....

Problem with sitecom wl-130 connection

I think I have the solution: you have to click on the basic settings tab, then n "site survey" button, then (optional) on "refresh" button.
Now you will get the information about your network, and you just have to check the channel number of the signal from your main router. then you have to set that channel in the "channel" button of the basic settings tab. You also have to choose Universal repeater as working mode of the sitecom device, instead of Access Point.
Hope it helps.
By the way, all these settings should be automatic in such a device.... But this sitecom range extender is ****.
I suggest everybody is reading: DON,T BUY THIS ITEM!!!! Spend 10 bucks more and get a working one!!!

Having Problem Acquiring IP Address

when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is the range extender IP address has to change from to Hope that helps.
