I have a problem with a wifi repeater that I am configuring (3Com Wireless 7760)

Here some pictures of my installation of the device: https://imgur.com/a/v9uiF

According to the manual of the device, connect with a network cable and connect to the LAN, should you turn on your power button, but I don't see any lights in any of the 4 devices that I have. The devices are new and im surprised that none of the 4 work.

I found the following books, but I can not understand. I imagine that at least the power button light should be on:

Any idea?

  • Could you edit your question to include the pictures as inline images? Because external links tend to go dead. – MichelZ Apr 24 '14 at 9:12

You need a PoE (Power over Ethernet) capable switch. The Netgear thing that I see there most probably is not PoE capable. You can also use a PoE injector, you would go from Switch -> PoE Injector -> Patch Panel

  • I use a PoE and power led turns on :'D i.imgur.com/DQWDnz6.jpg How can i detect the device in my net? I dont see any ip with port 80 on – 50l3r Apr 24 '14 at 10:49
  • That's something you Need to consult the documentation for the device. Often it has or something by Default, or there is a "Management Application" which can detect and configure the device – MichelZ Apr 24 '14 at 10:55
