I have a 3com wireless router (3CRWDR100A-72). It is set as 192.168.1.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, DHCP, and I have around 10 devices which connect both wirelessly and wired which I have fixed the IP's for (so they're static).
I can't get the DIR-505 to work as a repeater. I've updated it to the latest firmware 1.05. When I use the setup wizard, it detects my router's SSID and I put the password in.
In my router's admin page I have added the MAC address of the DIR-505 and it detects it as having the same SSID, so it looks as though my router can see the DIR-505 as an AP. I also have MAC address filtering on, and have entered the DIR-505 MAC address in the list so it's a valid device to connect to the router.
If I then try to access the internet using an Android 'phone, it connects to the correct SSID but I have no internet functionality, and when I check the 'phone's IP it is 192.168.0.81. In my router I've fixed the IP for the 'phone to be 192.168.1.6 static - it's been like this for months.
I believe the DIR-505 should be giving out IP's in the range 192.168.1.x but as you can see from above, it's not (also, my 'phone should have the same IP of 192.168.1.6?). I have no idea how I'm supposed to configure my DIR-505 to work just as a repeater. Can someone please talk me through which bits I should (manually?) set up as being the same as my router, and which bits I should leave alone?
