My Setup

Modem is a 3Com ADSL and Wireless Combo
http://www.3com.com/products/en_US/d...CRWDR 101A-75

Its wireless range does not reach all parts of the house, so I got a Wireless Range Extender ( DWL- G710 ) from Dlink
http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=357
It is setup to 3Com signal and I allocated an IP address to get it on the 3Com lan. I gave it an IP address of 192.168.1.8. The signal gets thru and extends my range as I wanted it to, Great !

So I believe I can make two connections to wireless network (1) directly to 3 Com modem and (2) to Dlink range extender. As they have different MAC addresses and different signal strengths depending on my location in the house.

My Imate Jas Jar has no problems connecting wirelessly to the 3Com modem and using the internet. The problem arises when I connect to the wireless Dlink range extender from the Jas Jar. I get the error IP address not assigned to server. ???

My 3Com modem settings are
Lan Settings
IP Pool start at 192.168.1.20 End at 192.168.1.254. So this allows me to allocated fixed IP address under X.20
DHCP settings
192.168.1.8 for the DLink Range Extender ( Fixed )
192.168.1.21 for Desktop PC
192.168.1.24 for Imate Jas Jar Wireless ( I guess from 3com wireless connection)

My DLink range extender works fine( the channel, security and SSID are all correct), its getting wireless signal and boosting it ok.

I have activated in the 3Com my providers DNS IP address as I have a fixed DLink ip address.

I thought the allocation of the Dlink IP address 192.168.1.1 in the DLink settings and the 3com settings would have fixed the issue, but it has not ?

Any ideas ...

I assume the IP address are ok to quote here as my modem has security on it.

Its all about strong signal baby !

I had signal, but its not strong enough. Wireless works best with 75% plus signal strength..

I fixed my issue with a stronger signal.

Thx for caring !
