Q: Wifi Repeater correct settings

I have 2 routers
wifi-router1 ( its a wifi router with adsl2+ modem)
IP: 192.168.1.1
SSID: TPLink
wifi-router2 (its working in repeater mode)
IP: 192.168.1.50
SSID: Tenda

I 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.

Based on an article on the 'Lifehacker' website I noticed an article on how to use an old router as a repeater. I was looking at eBay and noticed something called, "Wireless-N WiFi Repeater Router Signal Range Extender Amplifier 300Mbps" which appears very small, and is just inserted in your USB port of your laptop.
This begged the question: At US$ 13 with shipping included perhaps it is better to buy this as opposed to converting my old ''D-link DIR-300" in a repeater, especially if doing so is a real hassle.
Hence trusting you guys here I thought I'd ask you if you think there are advantages and disadvantages with one or the other.
For ex. a disdvantage to using my old router as a repeater is that it's not portable
an advantage (sort of) is it's free
the eBay one at this price range seems to have 2 different models of brands unknown to me--China
-1- VOnets and -2- LB-Liink (seems to be imitating the 'D-Link' logo)
[This 2nd 1 seems to come in 2 slightly different definitions 'USB Wifi Router AP Wireless N repeater Adapter WLAN Range Extender F' or 'USB Wireless WLAN WiFi Router AP Client Repeater Adapter SY']
You opinion is valued. Thanks :-)

I'm having problems with my wifi repeater (I think)..
I have a laptop downstairs that is plugged into the router and then upstairs I have a wifi repeater and a laptop that is working off that signal.. My problem is that the internet doesn't seem to work on my tablet or iPhone unless my laptop upstairs is turned on. It will connect no problem but it won't actually work. Also if I have other people here they cannot connect to the wifi unless my laptop upstairs is turned on (sometimes not even then) .. If I am connected and then turn off my laptop then the internet on my mobile devices stop working. I have no idea what is going on and neither does anyone else so would appreciate any help.

So I bought a wifi repeater to use in my upstairs for my tablet (Amazon Fire). I hoped it would be an easy setup, and surprisingly it was. The problem is that a set amount of time after initial setup (difficult to know how long since I only use it at night) I am unable to connect my tablet to the repeater. It automatically disconnects and when I try to reconnect I get the message "connection failed" over and over again. I have tried a few manual setups on my tablet, not having the slightest idea what I was doing, and naturally that didn't work. The only way to get it to work again is to go through the setup again, but inevitably my tablet disconnects and cannot reconnect.

I am using a CenturyLink router/wifi combo thing for my internet. The wifi booster is just an off-brand thing I got off Amazon.

What other information can I provide that would be helpful? I tried to look up solutions, but though this seems a common problem there doesn't seem to be a common solution. At least not one written in English for someone like myself with no computer savvy at all.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Hi Everyone,
I'm trying to help a friend implement some technology for a working apple farm. They are using a linksys WRT54G router with a cable modem, the wifi in the main building works great. We want to extend the wireless signal to a warehouse about 1/4 mile away, we have line of sight. We've been referring to a book; "Wi-Fi Toys" by Mike Outmesguine. The book refers to both bridging and repeating, but the configuration of each is not clear to me. They've purchased long range directional antenna's and two linksys WAP54G's to be used as the downlink and access point. I've tried to configure them (referring to the book and the linksys website) as wireless repeaters and wireless bridges but I've had no luck. Has anyone set this up before (?), I'd really appreciate any coaching you can provide.
Thank you,

I have a TrendNet TEW-639GR wireless router working with a EnGenius ERB9250 Wireless repeater. They seem to be working together but I have some questions regarding the setup.

1) Both are using the same channel, is this correct? They show up as two separate signals on a WiFi scanner with the same name, on the same channel, with two separate mac addresses.

2) How do I force my portable devices to connect to the repeater rather than the router? When I go to the Windows 7 "connect" page I see only one network choice (because they are sharing the same name). Sometimes the portable devices will connect to the router other times they will connect to the repeater.

I was thinking about this the other night. If it's dumb question I'm sure that everyone will rush to helpfully point this out, but can't you make a repeater out of two WiFi routers?

If a distant wireless Internet AP is out of range of part of your network and you can't move the access point, can't you take a router located just within range, configure it to client mode on the AP's channel (say 11), then run an ethernet cable from its output to the "Internet in" port (or perhaps one of the switched ports, I'm not sure) of a _second_ router configured as an AP on a different channel (say 6) and then have that router be the Internet access point serving your more remote wireless computers?

Just asking here; as a thought problem, it's been nagging at me so badly I was preparing to go buy more routers simply to test it out, but I thought I'd save some money and ask here first. Thanks for any clarification and help.

Hey all,

Can someone school me please? I have a switch box upstairs with my cable modem and a wifi router. Downstairs I have a PC that is hardwired to the wifi router. My PC has a WIFI N PCI card installed into it (was forced to use wireless connection until I had a cat 5 jack dropped). My question is, can I make the WIFI card in my PC act as a repeater to the WIFI router upstairs? Reason I ask, the WIFI router upstairs doesn't get great coverage all over my house and if possible, I would like to make my PC repeat the WIFI signal.

Can that be done easily?

A:PCI WIFI card as repeater?

On paper, it can be done with some heavy modification. The wireless card would need two create two independent connections (one from the router to the pc, and a second from the pc to the next device). Since 99% of cards do not do that out of the box (and I am not certain any can be made to do that), I don't think it's possible.

I promise you it is much easier to buy a wireless ap/bridge for around $50-100 US. I have the D-Link DAP-1522 and it works like a beastly charm as both a repeater or a bridge. I currently use it in bridge mode for my Sony BD player and DiSH Network HD box (to pull guide info faster, etc). I can manage its settings via its ip (mine is 192.168.0.50).

Hey everyone.

I used to have an old wifi but it's that old the software I used to use to set it up doesn't even run under 7. This isn't really my problem though since I was pretty sure I'd have to update anyway. It's unlikely it would be able to repeat a signal from an N router let alone use anything better then WEP.

Anyway. I was looking for suggestions on getting a good repeater. I saw this one: Best Wireless Repeater | Wifi Repeaters Boosters and Range Extenders which looks pretty good. I've never used anything from Amped before though so I'm kind of tempted to go for a Netgear or something instead.

I was also considering buying a router and setting DD-WRT up but I don't know how they compare?

Cheers for any advice.

I have a Linksys wifi router but it is over on one side of the house. So I also have a d-link repeater nearer the living room. There are two desktop PC, two iPhones, and iPad and a smart tv using the wifi. Most of the time all is well but once every week or two the TV will stop streaming (Netflix or Pandora) and claim it is not connected to the internet. Last evening when that happened I had an iPhone and an iPad in the same room with the TV. The iPad and iPhone also could not connect to the wifi although they saw the SSID.

I unplugged the repeater and left it unplugged and everything got normal again.

The Linksys router and the d-link repeater are using the same SSID and both are on channel 6. Is that an OK setup or should the channels be different?

You can use the same ssid so you can connect to the same name everywhere or you can have a second ssid that way you know which router your connected to. Being on the same channel they can interfere with each other better to have them poles apart

Amcrest 2.4 mhz Wi-Fi IP cameras - 2
Netgear wnr 2000 v5 Wi-Fi router
Intel quad core desktop/Win XP pro sp3
Amcrest Surveillance Pro software

I have 2 cameras mounted outdoors and connected wirelessly to my wireless router. Because of obstructions (brick walls), I'm having trouble getting video signals without significant latency issues. Additionally, I am having trouble connecting to the cameras through the software to make changes in configuration.

I thought my router had a repeater function, but it does not. I was about to purchase a Netgear extender that is advertised as having a repeater function, but apparently it does not.

I cannot move my "main router" because I cannot relocate my internet connection/modem.

I "think" my only option is to locate a repeater at a midpoint between the cameras and the existing router, thereby creating a stronger signal to the main router.

My questions:
1. By utilizing a repeater, will I eliminate my latency issue.
2. Improve connectivity between software/cameras.

I'm having trouble finding a Netgear Wi-Fi router that has a repeater function at a reasonable price. Can you recommend an affordable router with repeater function or a standalone repeater.

Sorry for the long post...I've been fighting this issue for weeks.

After trawling various help sites and reading pages of forum answers I realise that this is a very common problem. Nevertheless everything I try just doesn't seem to work so I'm hoping somebody may have the answer for me.
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 would like to know the step by step to :

1) set up a repeater using an another router.

2) set up an alternate access point (with out Ethernet connection to it if possible using the routerlogin.net)

What are the major advantages and disadvantages of both.

My router is a Netgear N750 Dual Band Gigabit Router and the router I would like to use to boost the signal is the same model.

The problem is that the signal is not strong enough sometimes to use my Galaxy S4 on the other side of the house away from the router. And sometimes the signal does loose strength to my desktop using an internal wireless adapter for WiFi .

The desktop is not so much the issue but the phone is.

So, I thought I would try to increase the range of the router to cover the areas of the house that are receiving a week signal from the router.

Thanks for all your help.

Guys got a problem. Hopefully one of you can point me in the right direction for a solution.

The problem is Mom's house and her Charter Internet, and the House layout. The cable TV/Internet comes into her house on the south side of the house, into the Sun Room.Which is to the right of the garage. So the Connection is smack dab in the middle of the end of the house.

To the north of moms desk, where the internet/cable tv comes in is the next room over is the Utility room with the Hot water heater, furnace and W/D for clothes. To the east of this and still north of the sun room is the kitchen and to the north of those, the bedrooms and back yard.

Now, Her Charter modem has wifi. It works great for the south end of the house. Deck, garage, yard, driveway. But anything past the Kitchen, is almost dead.

Is there something we can do to get a WIFI signal at the NW corner of the house which is the guest bedroom? Do I need a repeater or something? will I need to run any wiring, or anything like that? She wants wifi signal there to cover that part of the house and the back yard.

Any help appreciated..

Hello,
We have a Belkin N router upstairs in the house....I have never had good reception downstairs in the basement, almost non-existent. I ended up buying a Diamond WiFi Repeater, and at first we had no troubles....computers downstairs and my iPhone were able to finally get strong signals down in the basement. Then something happened, and I'm not sure if it's due to two of the 4 computers getting Windows 7 or not. But now the two computers with Windows 7 constantly give IP Address Conflict errors and/or won't connect to the internet. The two Windows XP computers downstairs connected via WiFi have no issues, and my iphone has no issues. I know it's the Diamond Repeater because if I fire up the Windows 7 desktop (connected to the router via cable), it won't connect....as soon as I unplug the repeater, I am able to connect again. Now if I plug the repeater back in after the Windows 7 computers are connected to the internet, then it doesn't seem to have an issue, until the next time I try to start the computer fresh with the repeater already plugged in.

I have emailed Diamond about this, and my response back was as follows, and of course they didn't tell me how to do any of this:
"If your repeater is causing that kind of error, it's because the router is trying to give the same address to the computer and the repeater. If you give either the computer or the repeater a static IP address, your issue should be alleviated."

My WLAN, through which all my devices are connected, is too far from my non-wifi enabled CCTV DVR, which requires a wired connection.

I have hooked up a repeater to my DVR, which works fine. The only problem is, devices closer to the repeater than to the main wifi router, although showing a full signal from the repeater, have no internet connectivity. I cannot force the devices to connect to the main wifi router because it shares the same access point name with the repeater.

Unless there is a way to 1) override the access point name of either and still maintain the connection, or 2) fix the internet connectivity for the repeater's wifi signal (which may still be problematic if it keeps switching between the two), how can I disable the repeater's outgoing wifi signal while maintaining its connection to the main wifi router to ensure connectivity is achieved via the wired connection between DVR and repeater?

I used a repeater to increase my signal in my garden on the other end of my house, that works perfect. But the signal strengt of the WiFi connection on my PC is lower and also my internet speed. Removeing the repeater gives a internet connetion loss (for a shrot time) so it seems like my PC's preferred connection is to the repeater (witch is further away then my router).

I can choose to give my repeater a different SIDD name so i can choose manually but i prefer the same name.
Is there any way to force my PC to connect to my router with the same SIDD? ( i have a DLink dir 655)

A:WiFi repeater, weaker signal. Can i force Win7 to connect to router?

Repeaters are the same as a network bridge, they cut the bandwidth in half which is why I don't like them. This is why the connection seems slower to you.

Much better off with a wireless access point connected to a wired connection.

With the same SSID it's usually going to pick the connection with the better signal strength. You can choose to forget the other network which would force Windows to choose the 655.

After that it was fine, the only problem is everything I reboot- I have to change the settings again. And not only do I have to change the settings, i have to run the software that came with the monitor, because otherwise 1440 by 900 isn't even listed as one of the options under "settings" in the "display options" window. After I run that software I see the correct setting but before that- it's just not there.

Is it safe to uncheck this and manually change the UDMA to the 100?

Motherboard: Gigabyte K8NS with the latest F18 bios.

A while back I bought a MS Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000. Fine. Works, suits my needs. The only problem was that my keyboard and (Logitech USB mx610 cordless) mouse were not recognized when I used an Acronis rescue disk. I updated the bios on the board (badly needed...F3 to F11) and all was well.

To get into the bios, I had to plug in an old PS/2 keyboard, even though all the appropriate USB settings were set to allow the keyboard to work in 'DOS' mode. So, the bios is updated, my Acronis issues are resolved, but wierdly enough, I was able to get in the bios yesterday with the USB keyboard, but not today.
All the appropriate settings are still enabled (i.e., USB 1.0
Controller:Enabled, USB 2.0 Controller:Enabled, USB Keyboard
Support:Enabled, USB Mouse Support:Enabled. There is no USB Legacy Support setting, but according to Gigabyte, the Keyboard & Mouse Support settings cover that (and then there's the fact that the keyboard works in Acronis Rescue mode).
I have changed some of the settings, but none that should prevent the
keyboard from being recognized in 'DOS' (I think).
Any ideas? It's be nice not to have to plug in a PS/2 board everytime I
wanted to get into the bios.

Sorry if formatting is off...copied and pasted from a usenet post that wouldn't show up.

Thanks for any ideas,
James

A:USB Keyboard & BIOS Even With Correct Settings

That "USB keyboard support" is the setting you need to have enabled. If it is....you may try a new port. If that does not work you may try the latest bios. If you have the latest bios, you may try using the front panel USB or changing ports for the front panel and the keyboard in different combinations.

I just got a new P55 board and had the same issue but a flash cured it.

I would try a different port or mobo header if you have not done it already.

Good luck!!

I got a new widescreen monitor recently (model #HP w19b) and I had to really play with it to get it to the setting I wanted (1440 by 900). After that it was fine, the only problem is every time I reboot- I have to change the settings again. And not only do I have to change the settings, i have to run the software that came with the monitor, because otherwise 1440 by 900 isn't even listed as one of the options under "settings" in the "display options" window. After I run that software I see the correct setting but before that- it's just not there.

Does anyone out there know how to change my settings so that when I reboot- the screen size won't change? It's a pain to have to change it back, plus my icons get all moved around and I'm so anal, I have to move them all back just the way I like them.

Rest assured- any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Snaithbert

I've aquired this older computer AMD 333mHz, 64mb RAM, 4MB Diamond Stealth II S220 video, Aurora Vision (Shinho) SM583B Monitor, d-link 10/100 nic. I cloned a hard drive I had currently (HDD was clean upon arrival). (Running win98se) I Installed a CD-ROM drive, downloaded and installed the video driver, downloaded and installed the Monitor driver. The software for the video driver is running, the display settings show that I can change the screen area all the way up to 1600x1200, and Show that I can adjust the color to 32 bit. Whenever I try and adjust these, windows tells me it will take a few seconds, the screen may flicker and then informs me that my desktop has been changed, do I want to keep the settings? The thing is, everything is still the same. I already unistalled/installed the video card, switched PCI slots, restated windows several times after changing the settings, switched between large/small fonts. What to try next? The max this display will give me is 640X480, 256 colors...
 

A:Display settings not correct, drivers installed

When you change the settings, before you click ok (I think) you should see a change in the little preview window'
Do you see that change?

John

PS you should also see a little dialog box that says do you want to save (keep?) these changes. If you don't say yes it defaults back to old settings.

Hey guys, - I know I download at 16Mbps as per speed tests on my wifi..

the issue I have is why doesn't it use much much more than 4-5Mbps when I watch Youtube videos?? this really upsets me because I try to watch 720p high quality videos and they take awhile to load especially when I want to skip around..

so I'm ready for suggestions..

is it settings in my adapter? I have Qos totally unchecked and turned off in advanced adapter settings..

A:Want correct speed for my wifi using youtube..

Youtube uses a Variable Streaming rate. Since you run it inside your web browser, there is no way of knowing what the data stream actually is.

A:Need correct wifi card for dv6-2155dx

Yes you need this one https://www.amazon.com/Intel-5100-512an_hmw-Wireless-572507-001/dp/B00O0GG1L2 The Service Manual did not list a Centrino Wireless-N 1000 card. You need not only the correct chip but it has to have an HP part number. Likely your card has that number on it either on a tag or on the label as the "SPS" number and it will be 6 numbers and a dash and then three other number usually 001.  The 5100 card is dual band 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz so is actually a better card and will work.  Post back with any more questions.
