Question about Encore 802.11G WIRELESS LAN ROUTER W/4-PORT SWITCH

1 Answer

I have a wired network in my house. An aerial on my roof picks up a wireless signal from a transmitter/receiver unit in the village. I can also pick up a wireless signal from the same aerial. I want to set up an additional wireless signakl in my house. What sort of router do I need to get? I assume that I would plug this into my LAN switch which is the first part of my wired network after the pos box. Any answers would be gratefully received.

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.

Your aerial on the roof need to be pointing towards one of the transmitters for the TV region you want. That might not be practical though. If your local transmitter is the hugely powerful Emley Moor (Look North / Yorkshire TV), and you're trying to pick up the far more distant and less powerful Talconeston for Look East from Lincolnshire you won't stand a chance. What little signal reaches you will be swamped out by Emley Moor.

If you're picking up Yorkshire and Licolnshire then it sounds like your aerial is pointed at Belmont ((SW of Louth) or one of the repeater stations at either Grimsby or Lincoln. Depending on your location then a good aerial installer might be able to get you picking up Emley Moor and then retune your TV for you.

My Klh r3000 receiver is great for everything except picking up am or fm stations? I had an antenna attached, but the unit is in my basement, and I get no signals at all. What could I be doing wrong?


If the antenna is in a basement that is the problem - the fact that it is below ground means that no signals can get through.
Radio signals are blocked by buildings, large lumps of metal or other solid objects as well as strong magnetic fields (which can include electrical devices within the home).
To pick up good radio reception you will need an external antenna above the ground level - preferably as high as you can get it. Unless you get an omni-directional antenna like this one http://www.maplin.co.uk/vhf-fm-omnidirectional-aerial-874 you will need to point the antenna accurately at the transmitting station (+ or - about 5 degrees) for FM. At a pinch you might get by with an indoor aerial but it needs to be above ground level (inside a roof would be best)
Good external AM Radio aerials are harder to find these days.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...


This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.

Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.

Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.

You can review the manual like I did here:

I hope this answered your question.

I do not have a external aerial so can I get digital tv without a roof mounted aerial?


Doesn't matter how you pick up the digital signal, it's can the TV tune them in, and can you see them.
If not you'll need a converter box.

I have just moved house to Reading and previously was able to view freeview tv using my old indoor aerial in my 2nd floor flat in london. This indoor aerial didn't pick up any signals, not even analogue,...


You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

I've purchased Plexgear DVB-T stick and installed corresponding software, but when scanning channels have no result. That would be nice if somebody can help me in this matter.


If you are trying to use the ariel that is supplied with the unit you will never find any channels unless your house is next door to the transmitter. You will need to connect to your normal roof ariel.

Technika 19in f/s telly in bedroom cannot get any stations with a portable ariel - can I get a different aerial instead of having to rewire the house!


One solution is to buy an hight gain aerial and a UHF amplifier booster box..but if you dont even receive poor quality signals then i think you will be struggling without relocating aerial into the loft or outside on a wal or roof. or wiring to a main aerial input via a matched splitter

Freeview - No transmitter found


The signal from the communal aerial might be weak, since other people are using it, or it is experiencing interference with a power cable or something.
Try a signal booster from **** Smith or Harvey Norman, RadioShack, Tandy, Walmart etc ( I assume you are Australian - Freeview :) )
OR
Get your own aerial, if you don't live in a concrete shoebox....

Since digital switchover yesturday loss of digital channels


It may well be your aerial despite the success with your DVD recorder.

Digital signals are very much weaker than analogue ones, and when multiple devices share a single aerial you can get this kind of problem. You also lose about 60% of the signal at each point in your aerial cable where there are signal splitters.

There are a number of possible solutions:-

First, look at every bit of coaxial cable you have between the aerial and each appliance. Check especially at the aerial end for corrosion or poor shielding/installation and especially for evidence of rain water penetration. If the aerial is on the roof then it will cost almost as much to get the aerial inspected as it will to have it replaced, so skip to the next option. But otherwise, check along every bit of the cable for any cuts or splits in the insulation and properly remake every junction or joint if there are any doubts about them. If the cable is in poor condition then consider option three instead.

The second is to try to see if you get a better digital signal from another transmitter, this will involve trying different aerial positions so is impractical if your aerial is roof mounted but is worth trying if it's in the loft instead. It doesn't always follow that your best digital signal will be from the transmitter which you used for analogue transmissions.

Thirdly, if you're still using the same aerial as you have done for years then it's worth upgrading to one optimised for digital reception. When doing this it's foolish not to replace the cabling as well as you need it to be as good as possible. With analogue, many installers got away with using cheaper cable intended only for very short cable runs from the wall socket to the tv.

The fourth option is the budget option but can work as well as the third option: fit an additional analogue style aerials and run a separate cable down to each appliance. If these are fitted in the loft and you have the space, then there's no aesthetic or planning concerns. Normally the extra cables can run partway down through the house alongside existing cables, but for best signal quality keep them separate and ensure that the cable runs as as short as possible.

One further thing which you may want to try before all else: connect your digital box directly to the aerial cable which currently feeds your dvd recorder. Leave all other tv devices disconnected from the aerial. If the box retunes correctly then it's definitely a supply of signal issue as outlined above and if not then you should add the exact make and model of your digibox as a comment to this answer as there are a large number of earlier digibox models which cannot retune correctly due to evolving standards.
