I have successfully set up my Hawking HWREG1 repeater and been using it for a couple of months. However, everytime the power in the house goes out, the repeater stops working. I have to go through the set up process again in order for it to work again. This is a pain! Does anyone have any ideas? I have turned the repeater off and have pressed the reset button, however, neither of these have fixed the problem.
When we have a thunder storm or snow storm, the power may blink for a few seconds or go out completely. When the power comes back on the repeater has a signal and my laptop can connect to the repeater, however, I can not connect to the internet. If I move my laptop in range of the router, I can connect to the internet. I could use the anti-surge protection, however, that would not keep the repeater from losing power. I'm trying to avoid buying a UPS for just the repeater.
I turned the encryption off and restated everything and it didn't work. I did notice that the signal from the repeater was still indicating a "security enabled signal" however the router was "unsecured".
ambra4, I just set the repeater up (again) a few weeks ago. Everytime you set it up, it checks for new upgrades. Do you think there has been a new upgrade in the past 4 weeks?
I haven't found a fix, however, I did find a work around. When you lose power you need to disconnect the power supply from BOTH the wall outlet and repeater. When you reconnect it you must plug the power supply into the wall outlet FIRST before you connect the the power supply into the repeater. If you do this, the signal comes up perfect. If you leave the power supply connected to the repeater and plug it into the wall outlet, it doesn't work.
Please someone help! i have tried everything to get the repeater to work, i have read no end of forums and basically i can get the repeater to connect to the network and hence my laptop but it will not broadcast the internet aswell!! any help most welcome please its driving me nuts
