Does the wireless router need a static IP when using a range extender?
Constantly loosing connection from router to range extender and having to reinstall range extender. Using Zytel wireless N router and Hawking 300N extender.

The wireless router already has an internal static IP address. I don't think it needs an external static IP from the ISP.

Thanks guapo,

What about the Hawking extender? Is it better to have a static IP or let it automatically?

The default IP address is 192.168.1.235 according to their PDF. They give the option of DHCP or static during their setup, so you can go either way.

Hey guapo,
My unit is the HWREN-1 which is the Wireless N extender which has a default IP of 192.168.1.240
I have tried to use both settings and both ways seem to loose connection between the router and the extender.

I searched Google & others have had the same problem. One user says that it's because the router is changing channels from time to time & both devices need to be set to the same channel.
