Hi

I'm looking for help following crass stupidity on my part.

I have just tried to connect a wifi repeater to a computer running Windows 7 Home Premium. All went well until I received the message that I needed to enter my 8 digit password to link to the network - presumably the router. I misinterpreted this for a password on the repeater, looked and couldn't find one and stupidly clicked on the option to connect anyway. I realised my mistake when I couldn't access the internet although the signal was excellent. Now I cannot get back to get back to the option to enter the network password. It just automatically 'connects'. I tried resetting the wifi repeater and turning the computer on and off, but cannot get it to ask me to set up and enter the password as it did initially. Help needed please, otherwise it's back to a poor signal for this distant and lonely machine.

Hi coxchris

Many thanks for the speedy reply. I visited the website and followed the instructions to removed the wifi repeater link. When I restarted I had indeed got back to the point I was looking for, with a request to set up the network. Success is, however, short lived. I had previously assumed it wanted the 8 character password to the main router, but no! I have -

This is a new router that has not been set up. Click OK to start setup ------>

To set up a network, type the 8 digit PIN from the router label

Unfortunately this does not exist, so I am back to square one. Even so, your help to get me back to where I wanted to be is much appreciated.

If anyone has any ideas it is Trixes Wireless-N WiFi Repeater model no. WL0189

Thanks again.
