Windows 7: Huawei WS320 Repeater

Huawei WS320 Repeater

I recently bought a WS320 so that I could use my laptop at the other end of my apartment.
The local wireless network works fine when both computers are in the same room, next to the main router, as does the printer, also wireless, from both machines. The WS320 is useless in the other room. I'm instructed to connect to the URL 192.168.1.254 to change the WS320 to repeater mode, but the website doesn't seem to exist, at least I can't connect to it. Ideas?

When you say you're instructed to connect to 192.168.1.254 is that from the manual of the WS320?.

If so, To connect to the WS320, Cable your laptop directly into the device. Change your network card to the following settings:

IP address: 192.168.1.253
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.254

Leave your DNS blank, Open a web page and browse to http://192.168.1.254 inset password and it should log you onto the device.

It's not possible to cable to a WS320, the device simply plugs into the nearest mains socket.

So its basicly a home plug. Simply plugs into a socket and it connects to the cabeled network via the the socket. Then you connect to the plug via wireless ?

Hi both and thank you for your replies.
The ws320 plugs into the mains but doesn't use the wiring to detect a signal. It has no external ports for ethernet or whatever.
It's a transponder that is supposed to pick up a wireless signal from the router and pass it on the the laptop.
My problem is this: it doesn't come with software, you're supposed to connect to the Huawei website to configure it. Trouble is the particular page on the Huawei site can't be connected to. Hope this makes sense.
