Hawking HWREG1 wireless extender probs

  themexican 10:18 09 Jan 2008

Hi, bought a Hawking HWREG1 range extender to connect to a Netgear router. The extender is posistioned about 50ft from router on the same for. I follwed the setup procedure: router & extender in same IP address range, same key & passphrase. I can ping the extender from my desktop pc only when the ethernet cable is connected between the two. I can connect to the extender & access the 'net wirlelessy with my laptop only if the ethernet is connected. Once I remove the cable and connect wirelessly to the extender, there is no internet access. It's as though there's no communication bewteen the router & extender. When I reposition the extender should I see the router in Available networks or just the extender. Are there any tests I can carry out? My laptop has Vista. Are there any issues there? Help. Please!!!!!
