Hi Guys,


Thought I would ask here as it worked once before.


I purchased the above product from trade me (Listing 767854102)


I spent about two hours last night trying to get the thing to work as a wireless repeater to extend range out to my lounge.


I followed the supplied instructions and tried a few things myself but My network will not recognize the wireless repeater.


I can access the repeater via using cable and visting its IP address //


In here I can select the mode for the repeater and enter my routers WEP/ WPA key then save and boot.
It counts down 40seconds then it then just times out and cant be refreshed again.


However its all not much help if my network is not finding the repeater.


I'm no wizz but Ive tried everything I can think of. All the lights are coming on the repeater and I have tried using the reset button several times.




Can anyone help me  ? I e-mailed the seller for help but of course no reply.




Thanks team




Oh, windows 7 and yes I have been into my router ISP and it is set to accept new devices (visible)

Have a read of the guide in my signature below.
Although I cannot specifically help with this issue, i can suggest that wifi repeaters are a bad idea (they at least half your speed)

Also I am not entirely sure if you can repeat 802.11b as back then, WDS was in its infancy and you had to use the same brand of repeater as your router.
These days with 802.11N, wireless repeating between brands is up around 90% compatible
