Just ordered a N.Power repeater. How to set it up?

Post by nestergaard » 03 Jun 2012, 16:33

I just ordered a N.Power, and since I am a total noob at repeaters and stuff I need some help to
get it to work with Ar.Drone 2.0 and my iPhone 3gs.
Anyone of you guys know how to set it up?
And so it will work without a laptop, just the repeater, iPhone and the drone :)
That would be nice :)
Perhaps a little walktrough or tutorial :)

I don't have the npower but my en genius was incredibly easy to set up.

1. Scan for the ssid to be extended
2. Save.
3. Connect your phone to the ssid.

That's simplifying but is basically all it takes.
My problem is I don't know if I am connecting to the extender or to the drone. I did some tests and I have been able to see that the am connected to the extender based on the distances I am able to reach.

Keep this thread updated. Include steps and tests. We are all interested in what other models are compatible to this forum of controlling the drone.

Oh, what model of repeater did you get? Can you give us a link?

I was thinking the N.Power is a access point not a repeater and requires modification,a laptop and telnet to work? please correct me if im wrong..
Being that you said you just ordered it and your a total noob, maybe you should cancle the order and get an amped wireless sr300 or a sr10000. They are very simple 1 time 3 min setup and your flying high.The range is around 1000 ft.

Yes it seems that you are right. The N.Power isn't a repeater. Unfortunatly I can't cancel the order.
But I will try and make the best of it and try to learn how to use it to get some range with the drone. Hopefully with some help from you guys :)
