I have the main router, which is SMC SMCD3GN from Rogers in Canada, and I have heard from MANY people that this router REALLY sucks..especially the range. And I myself also had problem with low signal in the 2nd floor of my house, so I purchased the wifi repeater (TP Link) to extend the range. I followed the guide given in the box, and everything was set up flawlessly. However, after a few hours of use, all my devices (laptop, tablet, phone) which are in the same room as the repeater decrease the signal again, to the point where it was before I purchased the repeater. Then if I disconnect the wifi and reconnect, the signal is full again. Sometimes I have to unplug the repeater from the wall and replug in order for it to work.

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 moving my office from one side of the house to the other which has real spotty wireless coverage. Most likely I will not be able to move the modem or wireless router, so I have to somehow increase the range.I did some research and poking around on forums, but I can't find a clear cut, number 1. What you think would be the best option to pair with the DIR-655.
I am having issues with my freinds new DIR-825 Rev:B1 Firmware:2.02NA, The admin pages are intermittently slow to load and sometimes wont load until I power cycle the device. I am using IE8 on vista x64, and have the issue on all pc's on the network. Is there a work around for this?
Extending Range of my wifi with > D655 >> Booster Amplifier?I am looking to extend my WIFI signal to cover 50 Acers.I currently have 35� height tower with Dir-655 in box with 3 big Omni directional Antennas. It works but covers half of 50 Acers and it is slow.I am thinking of buying 802.11b/g/n 2.3W Wifi Booster Amplifier.
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.
i have beetel adsl2+router connected to my main computer through ethernet cable but its wifi signal is very low. its signal hardly reach the other end of my house where my bedroom is, and i want to surf on my laptop or mobile from my bedroom only so basically i want to extend my wifi range or boost the signal the thing is i have a belkin f7d1301 basic n150 wireless router, i want to know whether i can use it as range extender or any other thing to boost my signal.
I have 2 routerswifi-router1 ( its a wifi router with adsl2+ modem)IP: 192.168.1.1SSID: TPLink wifi-router2 (its working in repeater mode)IP: 192.168.1.50SSID: TendaI configured wifi-router2's repeater mode via site-scan and then selected my wifi-router1. It did not gave me any error.Now I can connect to both wifi-router1 and wifi-router2 but internet is only working on wifi-router1. What specifict settings I need to get internet from wifi-router2 also.
I have a wireless access point/modem at one end of my property (which I cannot relocate). To improve wireless connectivity on the other end of the property I am thinking of placing a wifi repeater (probably a cheap one like http:[URL]... mid-point in the property. However I don't quite understand how these things work. I assume repeaters, extenders, boosters are all the same thing?
Does the repeater actually create a new seperate wifi network, so I will effectively have two wifi networks/SSIDs? or will my wireless devices still see only one wifi network? If it creates two wifi networks what happens when I move through the property with say a laptop, will the laptop need to disconnect from one and reconnect to the other hence interrupting the connection? (which is not ideal).
Also does the repeater take up an IP from my main wireless access point/modem? My setup uses a block of static IPs and hence I would prefer not to waste an IP on the repeater if possible.Homeplugs is something else I'm looking into but that seems to be a more expensive option. With Homeplugs I would disable the wireless on the main access point/modem. Then use the Homeplug to put a wireless access point in the centre of my property hence giving fuller coverage.I've also tried higher DBi antennas (& directional ones) but they have not been effective.
im just want to ask a favor if you can guide me to set up or configure a router repeater to extend my wifi at my home. i dont have a specific brand of repeater yet.. im planning to buy but i have no idea how to set up a repeater by myself.
I have recently purchased a Wireless-N repeater which is now up and running and connects with both Ipad, iPhone and other laptops with ease. The problem is that I can't connect using my own PC. I'm using Windows Vista and the connection to the repeater seems fine, it just can't connect to the Internet. Every time I try and open a web page I receive the following message.Error 105 (net:ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) Unable to resolve the servers DNS address.
I am trying to use a NETGEAR 54Mbps Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router (Model DG834G v4) as a repeater to extend the WiFi I currently have off another NETGEAR router in my house to my office which is a seperate building in my backyard (75 feet away depending on where I place my router exactly).I've scoured the vast internet for specifics with this particular router. I am fairly well versed in computer-type verbage and usage, but networking is an alien language to me.
Since a few days I've installed my Sitecom 300N Repeater to extend the wifi signal at my home.I named my repeater the same as my wifi UPC modem (Cisco EPC3925), so the PC will see 1 connection instead of 2. I also turned off the DHCP server on the repeater (not sure what it does, but it was recommended when I was goggling around).fortunately I'm experiencing a lot of trouble. Although I can connect to the repeater, the signal is not always stable. Many times my connection speed is as low as 3 Mbps. When I quickly turn the power off and on it instantly jumps back to around 40 Mbps and stays like that for a few hours/days.It's very hard to debug this problem because after resetting the the repeater is doing very good until it slows down or even dispersers after a few hours.
I have a existing WiFi ADSL router and I have a WAG120N lying spare in my closet. I recently shifted to my room a floor above. I wanted to amplify signals as the current router is not able to beam signals that far. Hence I wanted to set this up as a WiFi repeater to have a complete coverage. I tried N number of ways but could not succeed.
make dlink dsl router 2640T to be working as repeater which will be able to receive wifi signals. I've seen one guy using the same dlink dsl-2640T as wifi signal repeater where he was successfully able to receive wifi signals[CODE]
I recently purchased a Wi-Fi repeater (Siemens Gigaset Repeater WLAN SE365) to boost my wi-fi signal throughout my house without having to drill through walls of concrete (with a boost in phone wi-fi in mind on the top floor of the house). I was advised to buy one specifically with the make and model of my router in mind, as connectivity might be an issue if these don't match up. I own a Siemens Gigaset SX55 router so there should be no issue there (I can use the repeater on 2 different frequencies, not sure which one is best, 2.4 or 5 ghz). The instruction manual told me to connect the repeater to my pc once (through use of an Ethernet-cable supplied) so I could alter the settings of the repeater to match with that of my router (same SSID, protection method, channel). Whereas naming it the same as the router by modifying the SSID and using the same ASCII WEP-protection password as the router were doable, I could not find an option to change a channel.
At this point the instruction manual was fresh out of ideas and told me that I had set up the repeater as it should be installed. After unplugging it from my pc and plugging the regular ethernet cable back in for internet (There is wi-fi coming from the router downstairs but also a cable through the house to the pc) I was ready to go and seeing the wi-fi bars on my phone jump up to maximum made me extremely happy. Unfortunately the phone (and the app Wifi Analyzer) did recognize the full signal but when trying to open sites or apps that use internet it responded as if it had no signal whatsoever
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 ?
We do some remote work for our customers and often have to use their VPN in order to connect to their systems. We have had no problem utilizing the Cisco VPN with some of our customers unti recently. We picked up another customer that uses the Sonicwall VPN. If I sign onto the Sonicwall client, sign off, and sign into the Cisco VPN client, at the point that it makes the connection, it completely locks up my users' PCs. It happens to all of them.
I've discovered that from a fresh boot, I can get on and off the Cisco VPN all day, but as soon as I utilize the Sonicwall VPN, and then return to the Cisco VPN, it locks up every time.
All of my machines are Windows 7 and are using the Cisco VPN Client Version 5.0.07.0290.
I was wondering if it possible to use the DIR-825 as a repeater. My main router is a Airport Extreme but it doesn't reach the whole house. Now what I'm also wondering if I can use the repeater as well as a SharePort for my external hard drive while it is being used as a Repeater.
I've recently lost my ability to access the internet at uni and as this is quite an inconvenience I am considering some alternatives, the most viable one I've managed to come up with hinges on the fact that I live in a building which is only a road and another building away from the main uni buildings (3 buildings on 2 city blocks), basically it looks like this: UNI BUILDING 1 | UNI BUILDING 2 |ROAD| UNI BUILDING 3 |ROAD| MY APARTMENT.So I'm thinking of building one of these: url.. or waiting for the r20000g (dual band) to come out and buying that.THEN the area I'm having a bit of trouble with: I need to get reception about 600-700m away through buildings, so I've been looking at Yagi antennas and such but can't seem to find any information on the following:
1. Will a high powered directional antenna go through a few buildings and still make it 1km (.6 miles)
2. How directional is a directional antenna? like if I point one in the general direction of the building how accurate do I have to be? (I have no problem buying 4-5 antennas if I need to)
3. Do I need a new Wi-Fi antenna for my laptops? it seems odd to me that a laptop would be able to transmit back 1km while I need a giant antenna to get to the laptop (I know its not this simple but it still seems odd)
I need a wifi card for my desktop that can get the same 55down 8up as my wired internet that is about 25 feet away. I cannot use a long ethernet cable. It doesn't matter whether it is internal or external as long as I can get the desired connection speed that I need.
I want to share my pc's wifi connection with a neighbor across the street. But i have been un-able to confirm that it can reach the net. With the configs i have tried.I have cloned the mac addy for the wifiAP i have shared. This should be enough. And i should be able to walk it across the street and have it act as the same wifiAP. And he should have the net, via my pc. I tried to use another wifi device to connect to the shared IP...And the router itself...But there was no internet. have tried to configure this router to work as a repeater as well using it's setup. This resulted in no internet connectivity over lan, and no wifi service listing. These is no way for me to tell it which router or device it should be repeating from...
I have tried manually configureing the mn-700 To use the same ip the other router does for it's services. The mn-700 doesn't keep the settings. When it does there is no internet or wifi services.When i have it setup on it's own, no config changes...It'll connect over wifi to the router but there is no net. I can connect a lan wire going to the other router and renew it's lease. This will give the mn-700 an ip addy as if it were another pc. It uses this as it's WAN config
