Hawking HWREG1

  bike2009 19:33 21 Aug 2009


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.

Why does the power in the house keep going out? Perhaps you should use a Anti-surge protection socket.

I have a feeling this is the router not letting it back in, Encryption Software in Router. Just for a test try turning Encryption off in the router. remove power then restart them

What you could try is go into Router Setup Page and fix the Address's for all wireless items

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 take it that you are saving the configure before logging out

Upgrade the firmware and see if that solve your problem

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.

Thanks for all your help!!

“Everytime you set it up, it checks for new upgrades”

Are you using the "Backup" tool to save the Range Extender’s current configuration to a file

named "config.bin" on your PC.

If you are do you then use the "Restore" tool to upload and restore the saved configuration to

the Range Extender that is the upgrade that the Range Extender is upgradeing from

Check out “Page 30 - 31 in the manual section 3.2.8

“Firmware Upgrade” which allows you to upgrade the Range Extender’s firmware.it connot be

done automatically

The firmware is a special “bin file” that you have to manualy download and install using the

firmware update section in the Range Extender

Latest Firmware update: Version 1.26

I don't use the backup tool. I will try the firmware upgrade and see if it corrects the problem.
