Question about Hawking HWREG1 Repeater

2 Answers

My laptop can't find the SSID

I have connected the repeater to the router and power source as instructed to do so from the menu. Then I ran the CD-ROM to start installation.

I followed the on-screen instructions, got to the assigning IP address, checked the option for Manually Asigning IP Address, leaving everything as it is, at the next stage, I tried identifying the SSID, my computer just won't pick up the repeater signal. Nothing in the box for me to select.

I have been scratching my head, and I just don't understand what do I need to says very easy to setup. I'm using Windows Vista and there's no driver to download for this repeater, anyone knows whether this is the problem?

    my laptop can't find SSID. I used the install wizard. all was good till it got to the window that searched for the SSID to connect to. No SSID's were located.

    I opted to choose SSID for the repeater automatically, so when did not work I tried to set it manually, following directions. I have a mess of things set up, maybe thats my problem.

    The broadband cable enters the house into a splitter and an amplifier (think that what its called. Splits Into the tv's and the modem. Modem has one ethernet plug and one usb plug. The ethernet cable goes to a phone router. Then into a switch with 5 plugs. Then One wire feeds my sons PC, one to my wireless_b for that house. I live in the house next door. I can get wireless reception only sometimes and then it is 10 15 percent. Thus I bought the repeater.

    I plugged the repeater into the switch. I tried the wizard first wireless then I plugged it into the switch and tried it again. I called Tech asistance and they walked me through 3 hours of experiments. Finally we plugged the repeter directly into the laptop. It saw the repeater but it would not receive a ping. She said she did not know what to do.

    Should I give up? Kayell

HI all, A couple months have passed since I posted this problem. I found my own answer after weeks of asking for help. The hawking Reg 1 repeater. Here's the answer. THE REG1 REPEATER ONLY WORKS WORKS WITH ROUTERS THAT OPERATE IN WDS MODE. Not all routers can. Check to seeif the router you are extending is capable of this mode. I tried 2 differnet routers, neither worked. Finally when I got one that spoke WDS. It worked like a dream. Why did the directions not say that!!!!!

Loss the setup CD-ROM

A setup CD isn't needed to setup the linksys wireless router.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

How to use ENHWI-N3 / ENHWI-N34D / ENHWI-2AN3 / ENHWI-2AN34D / ENHWI-3GN3 as a Repeater?

  • For Advance Users, you can download this document.
  • The reason why people use a Encore wireless repeater is because some wireless remote client computers are out of range from the main network's access point (wireless router), or the wireless client is in the dead spot or the device you want to share to the network have no wireless interface card.

    The function of a wireless repeater is basically to extend the wireless signal coverage. Wireless repeater does not authenticate, screen, secure, connect to the internet, give IP address to clients, broadcast names, etc., these are the wireless router's job. Repeater only repeats what the main wireless router does to the wireless clients.


    • You should know the wireless security type of the existing wireless AP/router, is it a WPA, WPA2 or a WEP?
    • The wireless security key, or password or passphrase of the existing wireless router
    • Your existing wireless router's SSID
    • We recommend that the existing network you are about to add the Repeater on have a DHCP server running and able to lease IP address to all network clients. If you are not sure about this, please ask your ISP or the person who installed your network.

    Hardware Checklist:

    • Computer with wireless device turned off. This is only to set up the repeater, once finished the wireless can be turned on again.
    • The computer must have an available RJ-45 network interface card and web browser installed.
    • A working wireless router or Access Point with one available RJ45 port
    • RJ-45 UTP/TP Ethernet LAN Cable
    • The Encore Router is set to factory default. If your Encore Router is brand new and just pulled out of the box, no need to reset. If changes were made to any settings to the Encore Router before, make sure you "hardware reset" the Encore Router to the factory default settings. Check the User's Manual on how to "hardware reset" the router.

    1. Hooking up hardware connections:

    1. Both PC or Laptop and the Encore Router should be turned-on.
    2. Disable the wireless client from your PC or laptop computer (if not done so)
    3. Connect the Ethernet cable to the PC or laptop computer and the Encore Router. (This can be done while PC computer and router are turned on.)
    2. Switching mode from AP Mode to Repeater Mode
    1. Using your computer's web browser such as Internet Explorer or Safari Firefox, enter to the address field then hit enter. You should see the Encore Router's User Interface screen still in the AP Router Mode
    2. On the upper right corner of the user interface menu, click on the drop down menu and select "Repeater Mode". Click the "OK" button to the warning box. Wait around 35 seconds until your screen comes back to Encore user interface screen, this time the screen is now in the Repeater Mode. If for some reason you were asked by the repeater to enter the username and password, enter the default username and password (admin/admin) and your Encore Router is now in Repeater Mode.

    As of this moment your repeater is not connected to any router or network. It has to be configured further to be able to be connected to your current network and access point router.
    3. Connecting your Repeater to your existing network access point or router:

    1. As soon as the Encore Router switched to the Repeater Mode, you should be able to see the same Utility Screen with fewer selections on the left pane.
    2. From the Main Menu screen click on "Wireless" located on the left pane.
    3. Click on "Site Survey" button, a new Window dialogue box will pop up showing a list of Access Points reachable by your Repeater
    4. Check your existing network's access point SSID then click on the radio button that corresponds to your access point router then click "Connect" button.(If you can't find your existing AP router, click on "Refresh" repeatedly until your access point show up, or your location is too far from your existing AP router).
    5. Click on the "Encryption" drop down menu, select your existing access point wireless security, enter your existing router's wireless security key or passphrase then click "Apply". If you get a FAILED message, repeat this procedure again, a wireless hiccup might be interfering, otherwise you now have a working Repeater.
    6. Check your repeater connection by going to your internet browser and open a web page of your choice. If successful your new wireless repeater is working.
    7. Disconnect the Ethernet cable and setup your computer back to its original wireless settings. At this stage, the Repeater is now invisible to any wireless client computers. When connecting a new wireless client within the repeater's wireless range the process is the same as there is no Repeater device at all, the SSID of the wireless router will just be extended in range around where the Repeater is physically located.
    4. Connect your remote wireless client to your wireless router
    1. Using your wireless client utility program, look for your existing router's SSID and connects to it, if this is a new client you will be prompted with the wireless security key. Your repeater is invisible to all wireless clients. All it does is to repeat the wireless router signal as it is to extend its range. Once you have converted the Encore Router to Repeater and successfully connected to your existing router there will be no more configuration needed to the repeater. If you happen to see two identical SSID's of your existing router, this means your wireless client is within the same range of your existing router and the new wireless repeater, then your client don't need the repeater's service.

    If you are using Windows 7 and your existing access point security wireless is set to WPA2 (AES), make sure your Windows 7 wireless security type properties is set to WPA2-Personal. To check go to Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection, look for your REPEATER router, right-click on it then click Properties, check the settings in the "Security" tab.>

    When checking the wireless site survey, you may see two routers with the same SSID (names), these are your Access Point and the REPEATER tied together. This also means you are within the reachable range of both Access point and REPEATER.
    5. To check the Repeaters user interface

    At this moment, the Repeater is invisible to any client. The client's IP address is drawn from the DHCP server most likely to be also your wireless router. Therefore the IP address of the repeater is also invisible to the clients. Follow steps below:

    1. Disable wireless connection or turn off wireless in the client PC computer
    2. Connect Ethernet network cable to the RJ-45 port of the client PC computer
    3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports of the repeater.
    4. From your computer, set the network card IP address to Static IP Address entering, Subnet Mask, leave the rest as blank.
    5. Open IE or Internet explorer or any other web browser software and run, you should be able to see the Encore Repeater user interface screen. (Changing any settings in the repeater may affect its performance)
    That should help :)

    Hi, I just replaced my old Dlink router with the N150 and I set it up following instructions on the enclosed cd. I can connect to the internet without any problem but our laptops and phones can't seem...

    It's possible that you're just not broadcasting your SSID. Try going into the settings for your router by plugging directly into it with a laptop and visiting (usually, might be different for your router). Put in the username/password (should be written on the pamphlet or be on the CD somewhere) and check your wireless settings to make sure that "Broadcast SSID" is checked. Also be sure that you've given it a unique name, and password protection is always recommended.

    Can not connect to internet on my laptop with belkin router f7d3302vi

    The Setup CD does not automatically start.
    • If Belkin Setup does not run when you insert the CD-ROM, your computer may not be configured to open CDs automatically.
    • If Belkin Setup does not appear within 15 seconds, browse to your CD-ROM drive and open the "Belkin Setup" icon.
    • Alternatively, you may visit HYPERLINK "http://router/" or "" and perform the setup manually. Belkin Setup cannot find my Router.
    If Belkin Setup is not able to communicate with your router during the installation process, please check the following items.
    • Make sure that the wireless hardware on your computer is turned on, if available.
    • Try connecting your computer to one of the four "wired" ports on the Router with an Ethernet cable.
    • Ensure that the Router is on. The front panel LED should be lit.
    • Unplug the Router's power supply for 10 seconds, then plug it back in. There may be firewall software on your computer preventing an outgoing connection. You may choose to temporarily disable this software before attempting setup.
    once you login to router page by
    under wireless click channel & ssid ->change a diffent name in ssid
    under wireless click- >security ->use 64 bit wep and disablw wifi protected set uo would work fine

    Install software without a cd rom drive

    Connect an Ethernet cable between the network-port on your computer and one of the LAN ports on the router.

    Now, you have a "direct" connection to the web-server that is "inside" the router. Open your web-browser, and connect to the web-server, and then you can run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to create your wireless network, i.e., pick an SSID and a password, and enable "WPA" (Wireless Protected Access) security.

    Now, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable, and you can "find" the SSID that you have chosen.
