I have another one of these WiFi repeaters, but I bought This below recently for being compatible with the WiFi N network, which is faster. In this article, I will do my review of this Repeater and I'll show you how to configure it to increase the range of your WiFi network.
Below is the contents of the package: a manual, a European standard AC adapter (which is equal to the Brazilian), a RJ45 cable and the Repeater itself.
Below the Repeater and manual:
On the back of the Repeater, with the AC adapter plugged in, We have the IP address (192.168.10.1) and the user and password standards (Admin and Admin).
On the side we have a reset button and the input to Ethernet cable.
To make the first setting you should fit the Repeater in the socket and connect the ethernet cable (Blue) between the device and your computer. This should be done directly, IE, the cable must not go through any HUB/SWITCH/router or MODEM.
Now let's configure the PC to find the cable Repeater: first click with the right button on your Ethernet network in Windows you open the network settings.
Look for “Internet Protocol version 4”:
In the properties of the Internet Protocol version 4 fill in the IP address with 192.168.10.100, mask 255.255.255.0 and Gateway 192.168.10.1. The IP address ends with 100 but could end with any other number other than zero or a.
If all goes well, You can access the settings WiFi Repeater in your Browser (Google Chrome, Firefox or internet Explorer). Type 192.168.10.1 in the address bar.
Below the login screen. The default username and password is Admin.
This is the settings screen Wireless N Repeater. In the upper right corner we have a dark green frame called Wizard, where you can choose the operation of the router at AP or Repeater. In AP the internet will arrive via Ethernet cable Repeater will create a WiFi AP from this connection. In the option Repeater, the Repeater will receive a WiFi network in your home and create another network repeating the sign of the first.
If you choose the option Repeater, the screen below will be asked to report what the WiFi network will be repeated.
By clicking on the WiFi network you want to repeat, You must enter the password of the network and the name of the new network Repeater. Usually I do not choose the same network name, as this usually gives problem. Below I left my main network as AdrianoWiFi and the network repeated as AdrianoWiFiSala, because she will be in the room.
Take a look at the video I made about the product:
Don't expect fantastic speed Repeater network, because it will never have. The network will be to reach greater, and it certainly will help distant devices connecting to your network. Never leave the Repeater too close from the main WiFi network, or your signal will cause interference, not too far or it will not be possible to repeat.
Is a good equipment, cheap and functional. I leave the link to the product purchased on DealExtreme:
