Says to disable wireless connection and connect the repeater to the ethernet port directly. Then enter 10.0.10.254 in browser to acess GUI. IE cannot find the repeater?

I tried standard cat 5 cables and crossovers?

What are you trying to do with the repeater? The repeater should only function to locally increase your wireless signal, it does not provide DHCP addressing or act as a gateway.

Consult your manual, but basically the repeater should have an ip address assigned that is within your network range, but not one that will be assigned by the DHCP server in your gateway router. For example if your gateway is 192.168.0.1, allow the DHCP to assign 192.168.0.2 to 198.168.0.50 and assign the repeater a static address of 192.168.0.51.

You may be trying to make a wired connection to the repeater to set it up, if so, the computer you connect will have to be in the same network as the default repeater address, so give your computer a temporary static address of 10.0.10.253 while connected to the repeater. Then when you type in the repeater address into IE you will get the configuration page.

The bottom line is that for devices to work on the same network, they must have addressed in the same network range (or be bridged, which you don't need).

Thanks, tried setting a static ip as 10.0.10.253 and 255. No luck, although I was not sure what to use for a default gateway.

The Diamond quckstart guide made it so very easy...just disable wifi, attach the cable and enter 10.0.10.254. Doesn't say anything about network address ranges.

If your repeater is at factory default, the gateway would be 10.0.10.254 with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and your configuring laptop could be any address in the 10.0.10.XXX range that was not already used. It should be quite straightforward unless the repeater has already been configured to a different network address. Take a look at THIS short guide.

What if the repeater was already configured to another network and you change internet providers and want to reconfigure? I can't figure this out.

To find the repeater, you need to manually assign an IP address in your IPv4 settings.
So get to the properties of your wireless network, double click on Internet Protocol Version 4, and choose "Use the following IP address" instead of "Obtain an IP address automatically", then enter the following:
10.0.10.1 for the IP address
255.255.255.0 for the Subnet Mask
10.0.10.254 for the Default gateway

Click ok and try to access the repeater again on 10.0.10.254 at the browser. It should work now.

I'm having an issue, I got it all setup and working but I keep getting IP conflict issues with the hardwire internet as well as wifi from main router will drop. Very annoying. Once I unplug the WR300N and restart computer the internet fixes itself
