    Re: wireless problem

    Can you explain this better?

    Are you saying you have 2 wireless routers receiving on the same network/subnet? Or is the "repeater" just a standard Network Hub - Not Wireless Router?

    If it is 2 wireless routers on the same subnet then you should check the following with your configuration.

    1. ADSL - Connected to Router1 Wan Port
    2. Router1 - Assign DHCP ON
    3. Router1 - DNS ON
    4. Router1 - Assign Local IP Address
    4. Router2 - Connected to Lan Port of Router1 (Please refer to manual as, although rare, some older routers have specific Lan ports for network extending and im not familiar with the model you mentioned below)
    5. Router2 - Configured for Bridge Mode (Not Router Mode)
    6. Router2 - Assign DHCP OFF
    7. Router2 - DNS Router1 Local IP Address ( Think thats right?)
    8. Router2 - Assign Local IP Address (Unique)

    *N.B - Im assuming you made sure both routers have not being assigned the same local IP Address already? That is of course i assumed correctly that you do indeed have two routers!

    Check all that and get back to me..

        Dont know how to disable Gratuitous arp in Win XP, Dont recommend it either. Googled about info on this and this is required to determine conflicts. Something that is always required in a Wireless Network.

        Try just clearing Arp Cache. At the command prompt type "arp -d". Seems to have worked for most people using repeaters.

          Be Good to know if this worked? After googl'ing this discovered alot of people with difficulties using repeaters in the home. It seems to work for some. Might let others know if this is the easy solution?
