1. did you first try to connect to the router via wire directly with it in the same room? then set up the wireless to work in the same room too.

2. once you've done that and it worked then move it to your bedroom. If it doesn't work there it could be that there is something inbetween the two rooms that is blocking the signal...ie a furnace can do that

3. if it won't work try relocating the router to another location. Try a different location in the same room first

but as i said , first get it set up and running in the same room so you know for sure it works.

What kind of wireless access point or extender should I use to project wifi in far bedrooms of a long, train-car like house?


Hi James, the wireless extender is the best way but you should go for the plug in type.....this plugs into the mains and gives you wifi and 1 wired connection, so you can plug into the room you want wifi to reach, I have linked a Netgear option but there are others! EX2700

What kind of wireless access point or extender should I use to project wifi in far bedrooms of a long, narrow house?


Yes. You are right on track with hard wiring the extender unit. You can also daisy chain another router to that at a distance that is closer to the furthest room. This will give you plenty of signal through out your house.

I keep losing connection to my Wifi Extender


Apple have produced a downloadable app for managing this router.
It also acts like a signal strength meter, and can control various modes on the extender.

Check there is not a scheduler or "Good Night" setting on the extender.

Signal indicator
Amber
Flashing
Poor signal strength:
0 - 39%
So your problem is still poor signal strength, your extender is still not within the wireless range or your router.
See Manual.

How can I increase my WIFI range. My internet signal is very weak when I am in my bedroom. Can I increase my range by possibly buying a signal extender.


Try moving the wireless router around and or higher.
If the wireless router is in a different room and the room has concrete walls of foils insulation in the walls, this will weaken the wireless signal. AND/OR
You can connect add a antenna to your computer. Have a look at this device. Normal 0 USB High Gain Antennas www.pricewatch.com/gallery/networking/high_gain_antenna

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 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.
