Question about Cnet CWR-854 Router

1 Answer

Cnet CWA-854 access point works good but who is using it??

I want to be able to see who is using this access point. I´m using it in a small RV park in mexico, it is unsecure as there is a lot of traffic at times and I offer it at no charge ( at this time) so they can check email,etc..
If I have a way to track it I may be able to charge enough to off set the cost.

You are talking about becoming a wireless ISP. There are several examples of how to do this on the net. You can buy all the necessary software to register and track your network users. As for just being able to tell if John Smith, or whoever, is using your Access point, no... You will have to register the users MAC address to track them. The cost and time necessary to do this is probably not worth it. Probably more customers and good will from free internet access.

Disconnetion problem

Try to update the router and the access point. Download the latest firmware and then go back into them and then set them up again. It should be pretty simple, just time consuming.

Let me know if this works or not and we can go from there. Good Luck.

You need to login to the router and go to the save/reload settings section.

You can reset this Wireless Access Point back to its default settings by clicking on Reset button, and then press OK button to confirm your decision. Note: you can also hold down the reset button on this Wireless Access Point’s panel for more than 10 seconds to reset its default settings back to factory default.

Configuaring wireless ap

if that is the case there is a possible issue in the firmware of the device (access point) it is either you flash the firmware yourself or better if you report this to CNET because there is a possibility that you are not the only one that is having this kind of problem.

CWA-854 as repeater

I couldn't manage to get the CWA-854 to work in repeater mode with WEP encryption enabled, but it is possible to use MAC Access Control even in repeater mode. Just put the CWA-854 in Access Point (AP) mode, add the MAC addresses you wish to allow in the Access Control tab and selecting Allow Listed from the pull-down menu, and then go back to the repeater configuration you posted. In this way, you may not have encryption, but you can still block others from connecting to your wireless network.
