    I bought a Hawking Ethernet bridge and for some reason after i set it up on my other computer, it still doesn't work. are there any hidden secrets to making work? thanks

    Please add more details, such as the model of the computer, laptop/desktop, OS version, wireless router, just more info. That would help.

    This router is designed to be put into a existing wireless network to boost the signal

    You need to when your setting it up, set it to be use as a Access point rather then a bridge

    okay, it's a g4, 1gb ram, 80gb memory, prosessor speed is 500 MHz, dual core prosessor. i tried changing it from bridge to acsess point and nothing changed. when i do network diagnostics, on the left where it says "built in ethernet" next to it it has a green dot. network settings has a yellow dot, and the rest (ISP, Internet, Server) have red dots, and all say failed below them. any ideas?
