I too am in the same situation, I will greatly appreciate if some one can help me to fix this issue.
Saito said:I'm having problems setting up a repeater in a corner of my home where the signal is a bit weak. This is my current setup
1. Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Home Gateway WAG200G
2. Siemens Gigaset WLAN Repeater 108
Firmware all updated
The linksys router is setup to connect to adsl, DHCP server set at 192.168.1.1 and IP addresses to give out from 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.150
DNS and default gateway are left blank.
All clients that connect to the linksys router obtain an IP address within the above range and DNS as per the dsl connection
-SSID = linksys
-Channel = 11
I am not sure how to setup the siemens repeater. This is what I tried.
- SSID and Channel = linksys & 11 (same as the wireless router)
- Local network settings of the repeater:
IP address = obtain automatically
that didn't work, connecting to the repeater gives me limited connectivity error. I tried manually configuring the client pc connecting to the repeater to an IP address from within the network range, but that didn't work either (can't connect to repeater nor internet)
Then I tried manually configuring the network address of the repeater. I gave it an IP of 192.168.1.134. Tried to connect to repeater with automatic and then with manual IP, both didn't work.
So I figured im doing something wrong. Please help
Note: i don't have any security settings enabled.
