The D-Link DWL-800AP+ as a wireless repeater to extend wireless range – Part 6



Ok, so here’s the synopsis… I’ve spent the last few articles setting up a D-link DWL-800AP+ as a repeater for a linksys WAP11 (v. 1.1) As of the end of the last entry I had a bit of a problem with WEP but that seems to have been resolved now and here I am to fill you in on what went wrong. It was really a simple mistake. When I copied and pasted over from the linksys….


What happened was, the linksys has it’s key information in pairs…. 00 00 00 for the hexidecimal numbers. When I copied that to the d-link all looked fine and I copied that information over to the pocket pc… nothing really worked after that. When I revisited the D-link configuration page I noticed that it had added 00000000 to the end of the key. On checking the first part it matched what was in the linksys. But, the last part (before the 00000000) did not match the end of the key.

The D-link wanted the information without spaces and truncated the overflow. I’m now able to ping the network again with the pocket pc, so encryption is working fine between the pocket pc and old linksys. Unfortunately…. the repeater is now not visible, so I’m doing a hard reset (pull the plug and plug back in.) That didn’t work and so now it’s on to plan b.
