Question about SMC EZ Connect g SMCWEBT-G

2 Answers

Repeater function Hi there.. I have SMC ADSL Router 7904 and WEBT-G AP which is working as a repeater. My intention is to extend the WLAN signal from 7904. The router and the WEBT have the same SSID and the channel. I turned within the router the WPA encryption but chosen no enc within the WEBT. I have also chosen in the router the WEBT to extend the signal. The prob is I can not extend the signal resp the signal is not been extended. Can you give me your opinion(s) on that? Tx Korg

    so, you are suggesting me to switch to AP mode. is that correct? but i need to be able to extend the network without connecting the router and WEBT with the cable... everything must be done wireless

    thanks for your help ... but I have called the SMC hot line and they told me what to do. There was again an issue, that my customer wanted to have (just for few weeks) open network with no encryption which I did and its working. Do you think that I should anyhow put an encryption on it?

    ok. my next question would be (I think its better to ask SMC and not to put the question here) why only WEP???

SMC - A wonderful choice...

1. Update firmware of your WEBT-G
2. Make note of SSID and channel of your ADSL Router
3. Change encryption of router to WEP and set the WEP key.

1. Change to repeater mode (operating mode)
2. Change SSID and Channel to match SSID and Channel of ADSL Router
3. under Wireless Settings, Channel and SSID, check if wireless mode is 11b/g mixed mode
4. under wireless Settings, WDS, click on Scan - you will see a list of wireless devices (or just one device - your ADSL router), select 'Enable WDS' option here
5. Under Security option, Select WEP and set the WEP key (the key should be same as the WEP key in your ADSL Router)

This should do it... Hope it works - good luck.

    Its always best to put encryption - in case you plan to put encryption later on, remember that Repeater mode supports only WEP - so set the same WEP Key on both the router and repeater.

    Good luck

While connecting thru router,it showing limited access frequently

Do you leave the router switched on all the time? If not then this can be your problem as some routers can take up to 3 days to get full signal strength and keep it. When switching the router off and powering back up it has to search for the signal again. It will happen whether you are wireless or cable.
If you are wireless and router is always on it may be where it is located, walls can interfere with the signals so try moving it to another area to see if that helps.

Hi, I have a dlink DSL-G604T router, wlan light not on.

Hello there!

Only thing that can cause your wlan light not working consistantly or with some blinks (which is normal thing) is bad lan cable which leads from your ADSL modem to your wlan entrance on your wireless router, please check that cable in order to fix that problem. Cable doesnt need to be coaxial so it can have 2 different lan sets (2 poles of exits male and female exit). Thats it ! =)

Please rate solution! =)

It appears the SMC router is faulty. The router is getting an IP address from the IPS because they can can PING your router and get a reply BUT the router's PPoE/DSL light is not on, it means it is not connecting with the ISP's WEB server and therefore you cannot get into the Internet.

WAP54G's as repeaters

Are you trying to setup both access point to repeat the signal of the router?
The correct way to setup the AP's as repeater is to access the setup page of your router go to status and go to the wireless subtab, check what is the MAC address that is what your suppose to configure on the AP's not the LAN MAC address which is on the local networks subtab on status.
Access the setup page of the AP's and go to AP Mode, make sure that you choose the repeater and copy down the Wireless MAC address you obtained from the wireless router. To enable roaming, meaning your wireless computer/device will connect to the AP/router closest to its location, change the wireless channel on all three device for example WRT54G will be on channel 1, 1st AP as repeater on Channel 6 and the last AP to Channel 11 but the other settings must be the same(Wireless name(SSID) and Wireless Security).

Note: Setting up an AP as repeater to repeat or extend the signal of another AP that is set to repeater is not recommended since the signal will deteriorate due to the number of hops the packets will be sent.

Hope this will help you setting up those WAP's which for me is quite useful since you can set it up to act as a repeater, AP client and a bridge to a WRT54G router.

The repeater must be the same brand as the signal it is repeating. Different routers / access points work in slightly different ways and the current generation of wireless repeaters aren't smart enough to work with other brands.

It's kind of like trying to put an engine from a Nissan Altima into a Honda Accord... both make the car move but they aren't the same inside.
