Angry Having trouble getting the universal repeater mode to work on my edimax acces point?
Hi, this is my first post on this forum so sorry if it sounds really stupid.

I have managed to get my Edimax ew7228apn access point in to 'Universal repeater' mode but I can not establish a connecting to the internet through it when I connect to the edimax via WiFi. I have entered the ESSID of my main router that I want it to get the connection from but there is no space to enter my WPA password for my main router. Is this why it is not repeating the signal?

This is all via the web interface by the way as I couldn't get the original setup software to recognize the AP. I'm also using a MacBook on Mac OS X 10.6.7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks,

Sam

I don't know if a Repeater needs the encryption key or not. Why not try w/o encryption (on the router) first? If that works then try WEP and WPA to see what works.

Yeah I've just tried that but still no luck, having trouble connecting to the edimax via wifi now, just won't connect at all, on my Mac it says connection timeout and on my iPhone 'unable to connect'. Was fine before, have restarted, I can't think what has caused the connectivity problem..?
