      Billion BiPAC 7800N & Edimax wireless range extender (EW-7416APn) problem

      I received my new Billion 7800N router this morning in anticipation of moving over to fibre this month.

      I have set it up so it works with everything but am having problems with one thing.

      I have used the edimax repeater with a Netgear DG834PN router for a long time to extend it's range.

      I am having problems getting the edimax and the Billion to see each other.

      Is it possible these two items are not compatible?

      I can't think of any reason why that should be the case.

      Spoke too soon.

      It looked like it was working with the Billion as it initially showed up on the list of things connected, but it was very short lived and despite fiddling with the setting most of the night and this morning, I have got nowhere.

      So looks like I will have to purchase the Billion range extender.

      Have you changed the IP address of the Edimax to suit the Billion?

      Yes.

      I had it set up with my previous router Netgear DG834PN and it worked fine.

      Doesn't seem to want to work with the Billion at all.

      I have tried everything, even different encryptions and no luck.
