ADSL Box in office ground floor - Range extender in 1st floor lounge - portable Win7 64 in dining room next to lounge (1st floor) Setup proceeds and completes as it should but the problem: The portable connects to the new link *_EXT but with "no access" (the extender is not connecting to the router). Having read several reviews about connection problems with this kit, none seem to have the problem I have.
I recently purchased this network range extender for my house. Upon going through the set up wizard the last step asked me to confirm that I could connect to the extender. After putting in the passphrase and clicking connect, it tells me that the passphrase is wrong. It is set to WEP 64bit (cannot change this) and uses the same information as my wireless network itself. I know im not entering an incorrect passphrase because it clearly shows me what the passphrase is at the end of the set up wizard. I looked for some troubleshooting from the Netgear website and in the manual but it just says that the extender is outside the network range, which is not true as ive moved it around to different spots and it gives me the same error.
I'm running Windows Vista on PC. Have a Netgear router. Just bought Netgear range extender WN3000RP. Have the extender plugged in and light is green. When I try my PC's wireless network manager, it does not recognize any wireless devices to add. How can I connect to the extender wireless network when it is not recognized on my wireless manager??
Can I use netgear WGR 614 as range extender of another wireless router?I already using a model with wireless router, i have a spare netgear WGR 614. I want this router to pick up wireless signal from the first wireless router then share the internet on ethernet port only.
I have a wireless modem but its a sucky one. It was one of those free ones from verizon. Anyways, I don't get good signal in certain places in my house, so i am interested in knowing which would be better a wifi range extender or a good wireless modem.
Can N600 DB Wi-Fi Range Extender have the exact same name as my N600 DB Router or does the extender have to have the additional characters "_xt" at the end of the extender name, when the first part matches the router name?
I work at a Public Safety building in Pennsylvania and our employees here share a Wifi connection with a local hospital facility that is in a industrial park behind us. The room we work in is able to access the Public Wifi but only half of the room has a good connection. I went to the local computer store and purchased a Belkin Dual-band wireless Range Extender and got it all set up, now I have the Public Wifi Extention access and it will connect to it but it has no internet access. Now we have no access to the administor or the network from our facility. How do i get internet access thru this range extender? If i connect from the good half of the room to the Public wifi i have a good connection with internet access but as soon as you put it thru the extender no more internet access.

Since i know there's a "Repeater Operation Mode" in TL-WR700N Wireless Lan Mini Pocket Router, so what's the difference between TL-WA850RE WiFi Range Extender?I know the maxium speed support is different, but.... what else ?
I am having problem using the N300 dual-Ban Wi-Fi Range extender with my att 2wire 3800HGV-B router. Cannot use the extender to access the internet. The Att router works without it. Just want to use the extender to extend my att router signal but cannot.
I have just purchased a Netgear WN3000RP wireless extender.The security setting on all devices on the existing network show as WPA2-PSK wireless n but the extender comes up as WPA-PSK wireless g although the instructions say it will copy existing security settings.There is supposed to be a Netgear website to log on to an installation wizard but this doesn't work and appears not to have worked for some months.Why are Netgear still selling this device without an installation disc when they must know by now that their site doesn't work?Is there any way to alter the security setting of the extender?
I just installed a Netgear WiFi extender. In order to set all the preferences, it wants a password and login and I have no idea what that is. I tried everything I could think of, but no go. how to reset the pw and figure out what my login is? Have had no response that addresses this problem. I am using Win 7 and I have an ARRIS cable modem. I've already gone thru the users guide with a fine tooth comb and have found nothing. I have been using WiFi on Netgear equipment for years, so it's not a new network. I also tried the login=admin and password=password and that didn't work.
how to properly configure 2 different hardware devices to extend the current wifi signal of my home network.I'm using a Motorola SBG6580 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem as my primary access point (AP) and a Netgear N300 DGN2200v1 ADSL2+ modem router which will function "behind" the SBG6580 in repeater mode. I previously had DSL for my internet connectivity but recently switched to broadband cable for faster speeds.Due to the layout of my home, I cannot physically connect the Netgear router to the Motorola modem via ethernet cable and need both devices to communicate wirelessly. I have already done extensive reading on this subject and best practices suggest that, whenever possible, both units should be the same brand/manufacturer. The Netgear appliance does have the capability of being configured as a repeater so if I don't have to buy a "network extender" that would be my preference.I understand that both units must be configured to have the same SSID, subnet, wireless channel and security encryption. In repeater mode the Netgear router can't be configured to use WPA2-PSK so I need to use WEP instead.
Little info on my setup as is: Comcast ISP Internet Modem with the wireless gateway built in. I live in a faily large house and am out in my garage a lot where the signal is sub-par, id also like to have internet out in my yard without it sucking.
I have an extra linksys wrt45g sitting in my garage...could I use that someway to extend the range of my wifi? The signal from my main gateway is wireless N.
I currently have a Belkin router and a Belkin range extender. I have the router downstairs and the extender upstairs. Right now the router operates as <SSID> and the extender is <SSID> Alt. I would like to use them both as <SSID>, and have them work together. For example, I use the Wifi downstairs on my laptop, I walk upstairs, and I don't have to change over to the other network. It would switch automatically to the stronger signal.
I have a Cisco Valet+ AP. I have added an Engenius Range extender, big house, (actually a B&B). The setup seems to have gone well (ranger extender linked to AP). Is there a way that I can verify that a PC in the big house away from the AP is actually connected to the Range Extender.
I started out with a wireless router/modem that my ISP provides as its default modem. It was and still is working fine. We will call this router A. My uncle who is living with me wasn't receiving the wifi signal in his room so he went and bought a different router that is supposed to have more range. Also, I believe it is capable of providing higher speeds wirelessly, but that is really irrelevant I think. We can call this new router B. I currently have router B running through router A with an ethernet cable into a LAN port- LAN port to LAN port. I basically want B to be a wireless range extender.My question is quite simple actually. I have everything up and running just fine, but it seems as if the wireless signal may still be coming from the old router A.
I am a university student and my building is made of concrete so I get pretty spotty wireless (lag at 9000+ ping on games?!). To improve my connection quality I was recommended the Alfa AWUS036NHR USB network adapter [URL]. The adapter itself works marvelously but here's the problem: when I install the adapter, the existing wireless drivers on my laptop fail and I cannot use the internal laptop NIC even when the adapter is unplugged. It says the device is ready but does not detect any networks. When I reinstall the NIC drivers, the adapter doesn't work anymore.Device manager still shows both drivers installed and running but the corresponding NIC/adapter won't detect any networks.
What I have tried:
-Disabling the other driver, reinstalling other driver -Disabling a functioning driver to attempt to get the other device to work -Trying different versions of the drivers--a longshot I know
Internal NIC:: Realtek RTL8723A Wireless Lan 802.11n USB 2.0 External adapter: Alfa AWUS036NHR using Realtek RTL8192C USB 802.11B/G/N 300M Wireless NIC drivers for Windows 8 Laptop: Lenovo Yoga 13 (i7 version), no ethernet port available, Windows 8 Pro
can I use both of them (not at the same time) without having to reinstall drivers each and every time I switch?
i purchased the belkin i described in the title of this post. It instructs me after connecting it to my pc that i should go to web page "[URL] it comes up that there is no site for this address. I can't use this extender until i visit the web to set it up.
I just replaced my DIR-655 with a DHP-1320 since the constant microwave usage in our house whacks out our wireless during breakfast and dinner time. Now the PCs on the other side of the house are connected over a Home-Plug network.Is there a way to connect the DIR-655 to one of the Home-Plug ports on the distant side of the house to "extend" the wireless coverage there for our laptops? Presume this is a different scenario than creating a "bridge", "access point", or "extender" since the router would be connected back via Ethernet cable. There may be some overlap too in wireless coverage around the middle of the house. Ideally I'd like to use the same SSID.Has this ever been done before? What would I need to reconfigure on the DIR-655?
still trying to improve my signal to a Roku unit in a New York aparment (about 60 feet away BUT throught several walls) Cannot see the 5MhZ and the 2.4 is weak. Had been recommended the D Link DAP 1360 but it seesm older and gets lower rating on Amazon. An extender that gets higher ratings is the HAWKING HWREN1 (PS also seems older -- 2004...)
going to be setting up my cable modem and Asus RT-N66U router in my basement in the work room/laundry room. My townhouse is 3 stories tall so just in case I wanted to look at my options for a range extender or repeater.
On instruction from reviews of the TV on amazon, i bought a TP-Link wireless range extender to set up as a client/repeater (not sure which to use) to connect wirelessly to my router in another room so i can connect an ethernet to the TV for online functions without an overpriced Sony wireless dongle.I connect the device to the router, assign a random IP in the same subnet as my lan (since it has the same default address as my router) and set the default gateway to my router's IP address (assuming this is what it is asking for) and set the device to either client or repeater mode (unsure of which i need so have tried both) and everything seems fine until this point. However, I set the device to WEP security and set the WEP key to the same as my router as the instructions say and my router instantly loses it's internet connection entirely and repeatedly tries to reconnect and fail until i disable WEP security on the wireless range extender, at which point it successfully reconnects.
The BT Infinity Hub (fibre optics to the cabinet one) plugs into a router and I tried connecting via ethernet cable to both without result, still no set up page from [URL] either with wi-fi off or with wi-fi on in the "Currently connected to:" window.
