Problem with sitecom wl-130 connection

I have recently installed a new Sitecom WL-130 to extend the range of my Bebox router at home. When on the router configuration page, the status is stuck on "scanning" which - according to the manual - means that I need to move the extender closer to the router. This clearly isn't the problem, as they are currently right beside one another. I am able to connect to the Sitecom WL-130 from my laptop, but it doesn't seem to be able to talk to the router correctly, and when I try to connect to the internet, I get "Page can not be found" and "Limited Connectivity".

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!!!

Maybe it's not connected 2 your sitecom wl-130 but still 2 your router, choose via network connections the sitecom wl 130.

Can not access sitecom 300n with factory preset 192.168.0.234 or find trouble shoot in manual


open Network Connectdisable the wlan adapter first. open Network Connections from Control Panel and disable the wlan adapter first.Then Open Properties of the (wired) LocalArea Connection. Scroll down to TCP/IP and Change the Properties: IP=192.168.0.2 and Subnet Mask=255.255.255.0. Then connect the Sitecom using the wire (UTP). You should be able to browse with an internet browser to 192.168.0.234 now. After setting up the Sitecom disconnect the wire and enable the wlan adapter again.

My Sitecom 300N repeater resularly loses its connection to my BT homehub. I think this is when the H homehub goes down sometimes. Resetting the Sitecom from scratch is a pain but resolves the problem. 3...


I also had this problem when the BTHomeHub goes down, power loss etc. I seem to have fixed the problem by changing the wireless config in the homehub to use a fixed channel, (the default is automatic which means it changes each time it restarts). This has been running trouble free for a couple of weeks through a number of power outages.

Can't help with Qs 2&3, get the same problems but less of an issue now that the thing works all the time.

I can connect a sitecom 300n(wl-330)but cannot get an internet connection the router is an Orange livebox


you need to put in the connection tab
the name of the router you are trying to get in to
and the security key (if enabled).

Try disabling the security key on the router to test this out.

You may also have MAC filtering on,
in which case you must disable it or
put in the MAC number written on the sitecom label  into the router.

Wireless extender


OK.
It's pretty easy:
1) turn on both devices
2) connect to sitecom device.
- you may have to manually set your IP address. (from network resources control panel, TCP/IP tab. Check the istructions, cause you have to choose an address in the same subnet of the sitecom range extender. I mean, the first three numbers must be the same, and the last number of the address must be different, between 3 and 255).
- now you can type the sitecom address into the address bar of your browser (allow pop ups from that address!). The defaut user name is admin, as well the default password.
3) Ok, now you're connected and you just have to set this way in the basic settings:
working mode: universal repeater
now click on site survey and remember the ssid of your main network, and the channel number.
channel: type the channel number of your network (IT MAY CHANGE WHEN YOU TURN OFF\ON THE ROUTER!! so you'll have to change it maybe every day..... **** sitecom device, I HATE IT)
ssid: the ssid of your main network.
4) click apply.
Of course if your WLAN is protected you must set the rigth password and encription algorithm...

Now it should work.. but remember, everyday you will have to change the channel, and sometimes ou will have to reset it, from he toolbo tab.

IT,S BETTER NOT TO BUY THIS DEVICE, cause even the latest firmware is not working properly.

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 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 19.168.0.240. Hope that helps.
