I have a Hawking HOWABN1 that I set up in AP Bridge Repeater mode to extend my existing D-Link DIR-8
With a wired connection i went to the HOWABN1 configuration settings and set it in AP Bridge Repeater mode.
Did the site survey put in the current access point SSID and password. So far so good
Then I unplugged the HOWABN1 from the switch .
Open up a computer and saw WIFI Main ( which in my case would be the D-Link DIR8 wireless router)
And I also saw WIFI Zone 1 ( which is the devices SSID that should be repeating the signal of WIFI Main)
When I connected to WIFI Zone 1 it ask me for password ok no problem there.
The problem is that after that it couldn't obtain an ip address and when it did it couldn't get a full gateway or DNS info.
All it got was an ip of some weird scheme of 126.96.36.199 something like that.
What am I doing wrong here.
I tried Hawking support but its horable
