I have decided to buy belkin n600 router. my question is can i connect Belkin wireless range extender n300 to belkin n 600 for beater coverage. is this possible ? if possible how many extender i can connect to the router and also can i connect extender with wire and wireless.
I have a Belkin N300 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender but the signal light is always amber and I have difficulty connecting to the N300 wi-fi. Can I use a wired Ethernet cable to connect to it rather than it picking up the existing weak Wi-Fi signal?
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 first want to say I "think" I might be posting in the wrong forums for this question, but because I'm not really sure what the proper terminology for this is, I thought it best to ask here.
I have recently upgraded my router for my home network from an old Linksys WRT54GS G router, to a new E2500 N router. I have heard/read that it is possible to reconfiqure my old router to act as a range extender for my network but I am unclear how to do so. I think this may be the same thing as an access point, but all the FAQ's I've found seem to have this work as a solo device, not as a device on existing network. I have my e2500 setup with the modem in my study and broadcasting from there, and would like to use my old G router set up as a range extender to be located in the front living room area and picking up the network signal and rebroadcasting from there without a modem or computer attached.
I have a WRT120N that doesn't provide a great signal in one corner of my house. I wanted to setup a Range Extender to allow it to reach that area better. I have tried looking around on here but am not having any luck finding one that says it will be compatible or how to set it up.
My main router is connected to the modem and is an E4500 (upstairs on one end of house). It has a wired connection to the E2500 (downstairs on the other end of the house). I want the same SSID transmitted from both routers.
How do I configure the E2500 to transmit the same SSID as the E4500 to I ahve a consistant signal over the whole house?
I'm using the e4200 in a big old house with lots of walls, including rooms separated with brick. Wiring access points would be difficult given the problem of pulling wires. I do have lots of kids and devices connected including DirecTv, iphones, ipads, laptops, and PS3. Is there a range extender? Do I care if an extender only supports 2.4Mhz if I use the same SSID anyway?
I recently upgraded from E1500 to EA4500.Can I utilize my E1500 as a wireless range extender for the EA4500?I would like to setup my E1500 in my back bedroom to repeat the signal of the EA4500 in my living room.Can this be done wirelessly without connecting an ethernet cable between the two routers?
I have 8mbs down/1 mbs up service through a cable modem (WOW). We've been using a WRT320N wireless router with great success. I haven't checked true transfer rates, but when I do a speed test (url...), I pretty consistently get the speeds we are paying for. There's a room I wanted to use as an office but the signal didn't reach there. I just set up a WRE54G range expander. It is talking to the router and my compter. I have internet access but the speeds are considerably slower (<1mbs down/<0.4 mbs up) than what I get on the other computer that's talking directly to the router. I've looked for specs on data rates on the WRE54G and can't find them, but I can't image they're that slow. Can this be because I'm using a G expander with an N router?
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.
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.
I'm a bit confused about what a wireless range extender gives me. I have bought a Sitecom Wireless Range Extender 300N. This extends the wireless range of your router to parts of the house that have a weak signal or none atall.
It is setup correctly and is working fine, however, the SSID is different from the Router.
Essentially, I want to extend the range of my router to parts of the house that have a low signal. This range extender seems to be the correct product to do this. However, I want my clients to switch to the appropriate wireless access point (either the range extender or my router) depending on the strongest signal, how can this be configured?
When a client is the overlap area (the area where both the router and the range extender can be sensed) I want the client to switch to the strongest signal.
In my case My Router is in the loft and the range extender downstairs. You can still get a low signal from the router when you are downstairs but the range extender give a full signal. However, I dont understand what makes a laptop 'switch' from router to extender when its downstairs.
Because the extender has a different SSID a laptop that can still get a low signal from the router when downstairs doesn't automatically attach to the extender to get a strongest signal.
If I set the extender to have the same SSID as the router
I have a Netgear N300 and am using a linksys wrtg54g flashed with dd-wrt as an extender. I would like to setup my wireless network to limit various devices (laptops, iPod touch, etc) to certain times of the day.
How do I configure both devices to limit connectivity? I've got it down pretty much on the NetGear using a MAC address filter and scheduling the services, but I am not sure how to get the extender to do the same.
I just got a new hawking N range extender to run on our network. My parents just got a new Internet Ready TV for the holidays but the wireless doesn't reach to their room. I ordered this range extender to boost the signal from our Linksys E2000 router. I was having a hell of a time setting it up last night. I was hoping that I could have them both use the same SSID so they would basically be the same network with all of our laptops/iPhones/iPads seamlessly switching to the strongest signal. (Router is in basement, extender is on the main floor). Unfortunately just setting them up with the same name and WPA key doesn't work as easy as I thought it would. So as of right now I have the extender set up as a different network name and it is working great. (router SSID = name, extender SSID = nameE) I just want to know if there is a way to make it work with the same SSID. I've been trying to research and have come across forums saying they need to have ALL the info the same (SSID, PassKey, Channel) and others saying the channels need to be different.
Right now I left the extender setup with the default IP and made it static so I could access the web interface again because the CD installation that came with it is absolute garbage (you can't change the broadcast channel with it). I can get into the settings easily by using 192.168.1.240 but I am weary to try to change things around again because I already have set up and reset this guy at least 5 times.
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 E4200 fw 1.0.03 my pc, laptop connect to E4200 is OK but have a problem with my iphone 3Gs iPhone 3Gs connect to E4200 at day is OK althought sometime loss packet but at night (after 17:30) iPhone can't connect to E4200, althought I don't config anything.This is my E4200 configure fw: 1.0.03 No set schedule access internet

Very difficult to get IP from e4200 at night, sometimes getting IP but not on the Internet, sometimes can not get IP and iPhone get message "unable to join the network "ciscoTNTn""ping packets at night (can't ping):
While iPhone is connected to the Draytek Vigor2600VG good no matter day or night.I re-upgrade fw 1.0.03 and restore factory defaults but still not fixed.Is that a bugs ?
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 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 a N600DB configured as a primary router. I got another playmax n600HD router which I want to configure as an access point that extends my network upstairs and allows me to attach some wired devices like my ps3. I followed the basic principles of setting as access point and my locally connected ps3 and NAS are communicating but no Internet access. How the 2nd router can connect to the internet?
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.
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 have a simple wireless network that works fine, except for one room where the signal is too low. So I purchased a WAP4410N to use as a range extender. provide the exact settings that are need to set this up? I have tried many, many different configurations, and I can't get it to work properly. In particular, it will not give me an IP address and therefore won't connect. Also, is it important to use the SAME SSID name? or better to use a different name so as not to confuse the two signals (base unit vs repeater (4410)).
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.
