I successful set up my WRT54GR router. Now I want to add a new device but can't find or remember my user name and password. So I decided to reinstall the router only to find that the http://192.168.1.1 page asks me for my admin password - having sensibly created one 4 years ago which I have now forgotten or where I wrote it down. How the hell do I get around this - if at all or do I have to buy a new router and start all over again!
I have an E2500 wireless N router that I recently bought to replace a cheapie netgear that I lent to family. The router is in the basement near a bunch of metal ducting and I live near a radio station, both of which I believe is killing my signal. Anyways, I was able to pick up a WAP54G wireless access point. I would like to use it as a wired repeater (hopefully to get the signal up into the upper levels of my house). Can I use the WAP54G with the E2500? I looked in the setup page when I was trying to set it up as a repeater, and it says it will only connect with another WAP54G or a WRT54G (linksys wireless g router).
My house is a little too big for my WRT160N v3 to be able to get to every room, so i was wondering if i could set up my old WRH54G as a repeater to get that extra distance to get those last room on the network? if so how to set up the connection?
I have EA4500 router that connects a couple of desktops in one room. I am having to setup another room for gaming for which I have another EA4500 router. I want to setup the second EA4500 uplink(accesspoint) as the first EA4500. I dont find any interface to do it. I am able to do it wired(by connecting the both the routers through LAN ports). but I dont want to run cable across the house. know if it is possible with another firmware. Or should I return this new EA4500 and buy another router?
I have a Linksys E1550. I would like to extend its range by using an old Netgear N600 I have laying around. I know the Netgear can be used as a repeater. I do not know what settings I need to change in my Linksys router to be able to use a repeater.
My wife just was using our 4200N router fine this morning. I went to try and use the internet and it was not working. I can connect my PC directly to the modem and works fine as I am typing on it now.
I upgraded to the latest firmware to see if that would fix it but it does not.
From what I can see, no matter how hard it tries, it won't grab an IPV4 or 6 IP address from my cable company. I am thinking the router just went bad on that side of the router. I hate paying for shipping back and forth when this router should of lasted as long as my old linksys that I have now and am using as a access repeater.
We have a wireless network and would like to extend the range for it and I was told that a E2000 could be setup to extend the range.If we say that our existing wireless network has the SSID network1, can the E2000 be setup so that it is connected to a LAN socket and then wok as a wireless runter with the same SSID (network1) so that pc's can connect easily ?Or must the two wireless routers be connected with a dedicated cable ?Or must I setup the new E2000 up as a new wireless network with a new SSID like network2 ?
I have just installed an E2000 router in an upstairs office. The signal strength is quite low downstairs so my question is: Can I use a wap54g as a repeater. If so, how do I get the MAC address of the E2000?. The E2000 has two bands and is currently running at 2.4. Would the range increase if I changed the setting to 5.
I have set up my linksys in my main hall, i get a decent wifi signal in my room. But i get very very poor signals on my phones (bb9780 and Samsung S2). I bought a Huawei WS320 wifi repeater. how to connect these two so that i can get a strong enough signal in my room ?
I just purchased 2 E2000 routers at BB and was assured the second one could be configured as a repeater access point. Some current messages indicate this is not possible.Will a Cisco moderator please confirm and clarify repeater options.
I would like to use my new EA6500 as the base station and another wireless router with Wireless Repeating Function as a repeater. Is the EA6500 capable of that?? I have not found any documentation on that subject.
I'm very dissatisfied with the range and signal strength of my new WRT610N dual band router compared to the WAP54G Access Point I used before.Can I configure the Access Point as a repeater for the 2.4 GHz band on the WRT610N if I use the WRT610N as a Wireless G router rather than wireless N?
I have a linksys wrt54g v2 router I want to convert to a repeater. I looked up instructions buteveryone says after all is done I have to connect my main router to the new configured rrepeater. Is there.a way I can do this without connectingthem together via cable. My house is seperate from the main house and running cable is not logical I have signal at my house just need better signal
I am using a PPPoE connection using a linksys WRT54G router (working perfectly) and am now trying to set up an Edimax EW-7206APg to extend my wireless connection range. I followed the instructions given on the Edimax manual, and while my devices (iPad, laptop) got connected to the new repeater network, I could not access the Internet from it. I may be wrong, but the instructions on the Edimax manual seemed to be for a DHCP connection. Is there anything different I need to do to configure the Edimax repeater on a PPPoE connection?My router IP ("Local IP address") shows 10.10.0.1 instead of the "192.168.1.1" that all the documentation online seems to suggest.
I got myself a HW500G as my main Wireless router. But as I moved to a new home with a very large space, I did start to have alot of dead spots which made me think about getting my old WAG200G out of the box and use it as Wireless extender.Is that possible with WAG200G and If yes, can you provide me with guidelines on how to do so.
I got an Fritz Box from my new Provider to connect to the internet using Fiber To Home. the box is now im my living room and also acts as an WLAN Router. I would like to configure my WRT54GL which in located in my office from a router to a repeater to establish a WLAN bridgde.
I am having trouble setting up my Netgear N600 dual band wireless router as a repeater to my Lynksys EA2700 (main wireless router).
I am doing this because the main wireless router is in the "Man Cave," as I am a girl- I call it simply "The Cave." Anyway, the range on the N600 is supposed to be great. But from where it sits to where I sit and use my laptop or tabel is about 250 feet and goes through about 5 platered walls- so super thick.
If I have two Linksys wireless routers in my house, ( 1 Wireless-G as the Gateway attached to the DSL line, and attached to the main computer, and 1 Wireless-b model BEFW11S4v4 that I want to use as a bridge or as a repeater to send the wireless signal around the attic (2 floors away) and I have connected them via Ethernet, and then connected to the attic computer (not the main one) via Ethernet to Wireless-B, why can I not get connectivity on the attic computer?
If I forgo the Wireless-B router, and connect the ethernet to the attic computer everything is fine, but there is no wireless signal in the attic. (only downstairs where the Wireless-G is.) I believe I can access the Wireless-G and tell it to be a bridge or a repeter (?? I think) but as far as I can tell the Wireless-B is giving itself the same IP address as the Gateway Wireless-G is using, and I don't have an connectivity, so I can't change it! Im confused.
