  1. Hi there,
    It seems that there are some known issues with wireless-n wifi repeaters, it would be extremely useful for me to know the exact model in order for me to help.

  3. The model number is WN518N2
  4. Hi, here's the info you needed:
    IP 192.168.10.111
    connection type wireless although I did configure it with the RJ45 cable provided
    router is a Technicolor gateway and model no. TG587n v3
    laptop is an acer aspire 5741 intel core i5 processor 430M running windows 7
    internal wifi connector being used
  5. Although they don't mention it, make sure the wired network connection between your PC and the repeater is the ONLY active network connection. Having another active network connection could cause problems. You want this setup done in isolation.

    As long as you manually assign an IP address to your PC as 192.168.10.2-254 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 (although they suggest it, you don’t really need the default gateway, just leave it blank for now), and save it, your network should be configured properly, and the repeater should be accessible at http://192.168.10.1.

  7. I'm not sure what you mean about having only one active connection and setting up in isolation. I have removed the default gateway from the adapter properties and I can access the repeater at http://192.168.10.1 but there is still no internet access from the wifi repeater

  9. My laptop can't identify the wifi repeater network. I'm really at a loss as to what to do.
