Question about TP-LINK TL-WA500G 54Mbps Wireless Access Point with Extended RangeTM Router

1 Answer

Unable to configure the repeater mode.

I have a basement in my home and i can't access the internet in the basement. I can use it on ground floor but the signals are not reaching the basement. My dsl is connected with tenda wireless router. I have introduced a tp-link wa500G wireless access point in the middle where it can catch the signals of the primary router and using it as a repeater mode to boost the signal, but its not working. Technically, dhcp is configured on my dsl, and primary tenda router through which i am getting automatic ip from the tenda router. The dsl interface is accessed through: 192.168.1.1 and tenda is accessed through: 192.168.0.1 while tp-link is accessed through: 192.168.1.254 Now the problem with tp-link wa500g is this that its default ip address is: 192.168.1.254 and when i set the wireless mode as repeater and enter the mac address of tenda router it doesn't work. I have also tried the bridge mode (point-to-point) on the tp-link but still no fruits. Please help.

Where should you place router and modem for best signal quality in the basement or on 1st floor?


There are several schools of though on this. I just read an article about it on a site that had computer generated signal signatures. Here is a good article though: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/wirelessproducts/qt/locate_aprouter.htm

Using a network extender at home


Network extenders and repeaters work to extended the range of your wireless network. You don't have to live in a big house to need an extender, where I live houses are made of concrete which makes the wireless signals a little weak when you're not in the same room as the router. I had played with the idea of getting another router to put upstairs since the signal wasn't reaching from the office on the first floor to the bedrooms on the second floor. But setting up the router and the network was going to be time consuming and I was just trying to make the signal reach a little farther. That's when I discovered repeaters, I set up one repeater at the top of the stairs in my house where the signal began to weaken and ta da! The network now reaches the whole house at full strength and I didn't have to set up a new network.

Can't access internet


If you want to access the internet through your network carrier's data plan, bear in mind your network carrier's APN settings. Then, go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point names'. Once there, press 'Menu > New APN', and fill in, at least, a 'Name' for it, and your carrier's data under 'APN', 'Username' and 'Password'. Then, press 'Menu > Save'. Press the back button as many times as required for you to reach the home screen you were in, before you started making these changes.

Hope it works for you.

Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you out any further, e.g. like accessing the internet through Wi-Fi

I had a linksys wireless router that worked fine with my computer and samsung blue ray player. The router is in the basement (that's the only place the cable signal is srong enough for the internet) and...


I have the same setup. My router is in the basement right below as well. Nothing works better than direct wiring... if you can, consider drilling a hole in the floor (near the wall) behind the TV and BluRay, and run an ethernet cord directly from the player to the router. Ethernet cables are cheap as dirt online, and not too bad at big stores like Home Depot.

How do I extend wireless coverage?


Extend the range of WiFi signals with Hardware If your router is placed on the ground floor of your home, the Wi-Fi signals will be very weak or may not even reach the basement computer or the printer upstairs. The situation will be no different if you work in a fairly large premises or if there are too many walls in the area.
In that case, here are some hardware device that you can consider to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi network:
wifi_repeater_thumb.jpgOption #1. You can attach a WiFi Repeater (also known as Wireless Range Expander) to your router and quickly expand the coverage of your wireless network without using any cables.
The Repeater should be placed within the range of your existing router and it will reflect the signals to other areas where the wireless reception was earlier poor (or totally absent). The Repeater can connect wirelessly to both routers and access points (see #3 below).
Option #2. (This is my current setup) You can get another wireless router and connect it to your existing router using an Ethernet cable. The advantage is that this setup comes pretty cheap and the Internet speed stays almost the same even for computers that are accessing the web via the new router.
You can get a 100 feet long Ethernet Cable (also known as Cat5 or LAN or RJ45 cable) for less than $10 and wireless routers start at $20. Here's a detailed guide on how you can connect two routers together.
Option #3. You also have the option to use an Access Point instead of a router to extend the WiFi range but that's often not required because Wireless Access Points can be more expensive than equivalent routers.
The other advantage with a router is that is has extra LAN ports so, in future, you can connect more wired computers for sharing files or you Internet connection.
Option #4. If you have an old desktop or laptop computer, you should consider adding an external (USB based) wireless adapter or upgrade the internal network card to improve the wireless reception (and thus Internet speed).

Just purchased a home with water ace sump pump.


That's the idea; if you lift the float the water starts pumping because it works off of that float. That type of pump is usually meant for water that is in a tub or bucket, so that when the water reaches a certain height and causes the float to rise allowing the pump to kick on. I use a pump like that to pump our the drained water from my washing machine in my basement, i let the water go into a big 50 gallon drum and then once the drum is half full i have it set so the float rises and pumps out the water. That being said, if you are putting this in your basement at floor level, you would need to get a 10 gallon bucket meant for sump pumps (you can get one at your local home store) and rent a jackhammer if your basement is concrete and put the bucket in the floor and the sump pump in the bucket, this is called a sump pit. Another option is to get whats often called a "floor ******" pump. Its a pump that sucks the water out when it reaches around a half inch of depth and it can be used in several feet of water (I've used these as well, there is no float involved), and it can be set on level ground there is no sump pit needed. The one thing with my pump you may not want, is that it's constantly running because its constantly monitoring for water so that a lot of water will not build up (especially if water can damage some thing in the surrounding area) . You can check out all the types at your local home store.

Home heating issue! hot air is cold when it reaches top floor!


Just guessing, but I'll bet your 2nd floor duct work is in the attic, and uninsulated, wrapping all attic mounted duct work with R-13 insulation and sealing it with tape will help but there is still going to be a slug of cold air pumped into the upstairs rooms each time the furnace cycles.

2nd Computer in basement cannot access Internet


if your signal is low in there the best work around would be to lay a cat-5 cable up to the router, the wired connection would be faster and more reliable then a wireless, or buy another wireless router and put it closer to the basement than the first and wire the 2 routers togher with cat5 using the second router as a fancy switch.
