Solved: Multi Router Configuration

Q: Solved: Multi Router Configuration

Ok quick question, i currently have 2 Dlink DSL 2640R's networked together and set up correctly, the Master router is assigning DCHP addresses and the secondary is forwarding to the relevant computer thats connected to it.

I have two PC's both connected to the secondary router, which are able to network together and use the master routers internet,

However, my girlfriend is buying a new laptop next week, and wants to be able to stream music from one of my PC's to her Laptop while connected to the Master router (so she isnt affected by any lags due to networking happening between my two pc's i regularly switch files between them, hence the second router)

so 2 questions:
Firstly, am i right in my above statement that if My 2 pc's are transferring via router number 2 router number 1 will serve her with no overlap between the 2?

and Secondly, DCHP is off on the 2nd router, and as far as i can see, the main router see's my pc's and the 2nd router is invisible, so am i right in thinking that her PC will be able to see both my PC's on the 2nd router? or will she just see router number 2? (i read somewhere that some routers see all clients connected to the 2nd router as one IP address and the 2nd router sorts it out when it gets there)

Attached is a diagram of a network I’m trying to get configured. All devices are on the same subnet.

The Moden/Router “A” is WAN connected to the internet. Its LAN IP address is 10.0.0.1. Its DHCP server function is ON. Its DHCP range is 10.0.0.101 to 10.0.0.199.

Router B’s default address was 192.168.1.1 but I changed it to 10.0.0.2 and turned its DHCP OFF. It is assigned static IP address 10.0.0.2. It is wired LAN to LAN to Router A.

Router C’s default address was 192.168.1.1 but I changed it to 10.0.0.3 and turned its DHCP OFF. It is assigned static IP address 10.0.0.3. It is wired LAN to LAN to Router B.

Four devices connect wirelessly to Router A and do have internet access. One computer connects wirelessly to Router C. That computer has a local USB printer.

I have three network devices that I assigned static IP addresses to so they won’t be changed by Router A’s DHCP service. Two are connected to Router A and one to Router B.

Router C has three Linux computers wired to its LAN ports. One of those computers has two USB hubs wired to it and several USB devices are connected to each hub.

I want to be able to access the internet from any of the computers simultaneously and I need to be able to print to any of the four printers from any of the computers. I also want to be able to access the USB storage devices from any of the computers and access files on any computer from any other computer.

When I connect wirelessly to Router B I do have internet access. Rou... Read more

Hi, any help seriously appreciated here

I run 3 PCs and a laptop from various locations around the house wirelessly and am suddenly not able to maintain a network connection from 1 of the PCs.

Nothing changed on the PC (apart from Windows Updates). The PC hasn't moved, neither has the router and nothing new has been placed between them.

System: Windows XP Service Pack 3
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 4000:
Motherboard: Microstar International MS7094
Hard drives: 2 x 40GB (C: usage 15%, D: usage 9%)
Router: D-Link DSL 2640B
USB adaptor: D-Link DWA-111 (have also tried Belkin G Wireless Adaptor FSD 7050)
ISP: Orange Broadband (formerly Wanadoo)
Network strength (when it exists!): Very good to good (never below good)

All systems have previously connected to the network. Poorly one now either connects initially then drops out (toolbar icon says still connected but not) or is totally unable to detect the network. Rebooting doesn't help, it sometimes detects then drops it sometimes doesn't detect at all.

It was using Windows Zero Configuration but I read somewhere that might be the issue - checking the signal every three minutes or something - it was the right time frame so disabled that and installed D-Link's software but same thing happening.

A:Solved: Multi use of wireless router - one suddenly won't work!

The problem occurs with at least two USB wireless adapters on the problem computer but the same adapters work fine on other computers, right? Sorta sounds like a USB problem. Think I'd try the following.

(From a JohnWill post 4/7/09)

First step, Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Create a restore point and name it something like "Before USB Fix". This is to bail you out if something goes wrong during the following process and makes things worse.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : fix.reg
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result.

Here's the sitrep. Had an old PC sitting around the house with Win 98 se os on it. Decided to upgrade and connect to the internet. I purchased a Linksys 4 port cable dsl router and tried following the setup procedures to link the two computers I had, the old compuer with Win98se and the newer computer with WinXP....Couldn't get it to work. So, since and don't have much time I gave up.. One year passes give or take a few months. I still want to link the two computers and get access the internet on both though the router which to this point i haven't been able to get to work. So....I decide that the old computer (Win98se) is too old to link with the other (WinXP). I purchase a new tower with Vista home basic os. Connected the new tower and old monitor and go though the setup and connection to get the two computers setup; though the router, to the internet. I do it!!! Both computers are connected to the internet. Happy as lark and proud that I'd finally got the problem beat I go to shutdown both computers, but I can't log off my dsl account...no problem I"ll just shut down the computers leaving the dst link open and all will be well. The next day I boot both computers and only have internet access to Winxp computer and no access to the Vista computer...I mad now I call Linksys and calmly go though the process and problem.

I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section.

I have been trying to achieve a Remote Desktop Connection with my office PC (Host -- Win XP Pro service pack 3) with my wireless laptop (Client -- Win XP Home) at my house.

The RDC works at my office in the LAN, when I have my laptop connected in the office network. However, from my home's LAN, I cannot access the Host over the Internet (WAN).

I have tried to open port 3389 for the RDC in the PortForwarding section on my Office's D-Link DIR-615 router setup and did the same for my home's belkin 54G router at home, under Virtual Server, in that setup.

Has anyone had this type of problem with Microsoft Remote Desktop?

hello guys,

good day! please i need your help on what to do's regarding wrh54g client configuration. i been setting up today the point of access for its secured network mode with WPA shared key on XP-SP3. tried successfully on a client with windows7 lappy, but then my problem was that my boss want me to set it on a manual mode. i mean, he wanted it that everytime he disconnect the wireless and decide to connect again later he likes to input again the password. but as ive see it everytime i tried to reconnect, the password is automatically inputted already and ready to connect. not unless u click the wpa box and the password will be deleted. boss wanted this kind of setup for security purposes. i hope u can help me on this matter. my other options also were not successful.

all comment and help will be highly appreciated.

A:[SOLVED] please help on WRH54G router client configuration..

Let me say this much. If that were the case with my wireless network, I would be entering my 64 character passkey every time I connected to my wireless network. I could just copy and paste it from a text file, but then what is the point of doing that over just letting the computer save it for me? If your boss wants to make sure his wireless security is strong, his efforts are much better spent doing what I have done by going to the website linked below, copying the "64 random hexadecimal characters (0-9 and A-F)", while using either WPA, or WPA2. The kind of authentication I think he is getting at, is something a radius server would be better at providing, provided your computers were part of a domain.

https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm

In Windows 7, I know it is possible to have it not remember your passkey provided that you do not check the checkbox during the connection setup. My memory is a little off with XP. Does it provide something similar?

I had a couple of guests over and they were having problems getting online (actually they were on for a day but one laptop dropped) the problem was with the guest laptop itself. While troubleshooting we opened the router as an access point. It gave us a new address for configuration but did not get it all down. It is a Belkin Wireless G router and the previous config address was 192.168.2.1 the new one was 192.168. then 2 0r 1 follwoed by three number sequence I believe starting with 2 (I tried 245 and 254).

Hi,

We have today around :
- 15 DC in 3 hub sites (datacenter)
- 80 DC in 80 remote sites (it's the only server on site) 
- 30 RODC in 30 remote sites (it's the only server on site) 

I can easily install 3 gateways on the 3 Hub sites, but I can't install 110 other gateways on remote sites.
I can configure event log forwarding on the remote sites (if it's doesn't overload the network) but I can't configure port mirroring over the WAN.

Conclusion : Is ATA useful for me ? Can it provide some useful information with only the event log of most of the DC ?

I am trying to decide what the best option is for configuring (set up, updates, installs) multiple computers on a network domain. Could someone who has experience with at leat one (ideally a few) of these solutions comment on which one is best? We are running mostly windows 10, a few windows 7 machines, and a server with windows 2012. We will most likely only have one or two configurations that will be cookie-cutter for everyone.
The solutions I am considering are:
NTLite
Windows ADK with group policy for some updates
System Center Configuration Manager
Things I would like to consider: Ease of learning and use, speed of setup, and features/usability. I would like to be able to not only install windows updates, but also third party software. What are you using? Is there anything else better than any of these? I'm looking to get a consensus on the best option, so please leave a comment with any opinions on the matter.

I have attached a file to show the current configuration of my hard drive. Historically, I purchased the computer with Vista OS and then added the Windows 7 and Windows 10 partitions later as as these OSs became available. I am now running out of space on my hard drive and want to delete the Vista OS and expand the Windows 7 and Windows 10 partitions. Using the MiniTool Partition Wizard I change the Windows 10 partition to 'Active' but when I rebooted my computer it would not boot - the error message was "BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart". I used the MiniTool bootable disc to change back to the original settings and the computer booted normally.

I would be grateful for assistance to achieve the dual boot (Windows 7 and Windows 10) configuration that I want.

I have a bit of an unusual network setup do to the poor broadband choices where I live and the fact that I work from a home office.  I need some help in figuring out the best way to get my network working as I need it.
I have 2 separate DSL lines coming into my house.  I want all computers to use DSL-1 except my work computer.  I want my work computer to use DSL-2 or, ideally, be able to load balance with both.  I have a Windows Home Server that serves a
printer and backs up all computers.
Currently, I have my work computer directly plugged into the modem/router for DSL-2 and all other computers plugged into the modem/router for DSL-1.  Each modem/router is on its own subnet and they do not talk to each other at all.  The problem
is, my work computer cannot access the Windows Home Server, therefore no printing or backing up.  
I am thinking that if I just put a 2nd NIC in my work computer and connect it to DSL-1 I should be set.This should allow my work computer full access to both subnets and therefore printing and backup.  Do I need to actually set them up to bridge or
should it just work?
Is there anyway to configure the load balancing, so that my work computer can access both DSL lines in some sort of load balancing/line aggregation setup?  I know that my proposed solution will only use one DSL line in the above configuration.
Thanks for any help.  I still have to wait for the 2nd NIC to arrive or I would just s... Read more

Ahh, I don't know anything! And i'm realising that more and more as I fiddle around with my routers...

Anyways, i'm trying to have two routers running off the same ''Internets''.

I have a Linksys Wireless-G Router (2.4ghz) and a regular Ethernet Linksys Router.

Here is what I would like:

Have the wireless one (in the Family Room) being connected directly from the little cable box (it already was and works fine).

But, now I have an 80foot Ethernet cord going straight to my room from one of the ports on my Wireless router. (And another port on my Wireless router is reserved for the computer in the family room).

And here is what I did so far with that:

I plugged in my 80foot ethernet cord into one of the ports (not the internet port, left that one empty) into my regular Ethernet Linksys Router. And then I have the computer in my room, my PS3 and 360 connected to that router with the 3 other available ports.

It didnt work. SO, I took the router from my room and brought it into the Family Room and plugged it into the little Cable box directly and configured the Router (192.168.1.1) site. And turned off the Regular Ethernet Routers DHCP.

A:Multi-Router hookup Crisis...

First you need a special network lead called a 'Cross-Over', the pin configurations are different allowing the two routers to talk to each other. Depending on the strength of the network socket on each router you might have problems due to cable length, I would get it all working on a short lead first.
You are correct to switch DHCP off on the second router, also make sure it is not trying to establish a DSL connection as it will not have the RJ11 (BT Line) going into it.

You shall need to manually configure the IP details on the wired router to match your DHCP issued IPs, make sure that you tell the DHCP server on the wireless box not to use the address that you assign to the wired router.

I have an Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and a few laptops that are generally always connecting to the internet. Never had any problems with the WRT54G linksys router, not with 360 or Wii but recently I have started trying the online capabilities out on the PS3 and found that it keeps disconnecting the laptops from the internet?

That simply can't be. You have faulty hardware or some serious misconfiguration somewhere.

"disconnect" means what?

I currently use a router with my isp connection through the cable provider in my area .The problem I am experiencing is when the computer is plugged DIRECTLY into the cable modem provided by my isp, bandwidth(via speed test) is at expected speeds .

HOWEVER once the router(dlink DLR-645) is plugged in to the cable modem the bandwidth essentially cuts in half (@7mbps)or more of the 20mbps service I subscribe to.

I know that the router can be successfully configured because it was set up in the past but I no longer have the information to do it anymore.

I would like to access my router to configure it for maximum internet connection speed. The router is a NetGear WGR614v4 with both wireless and hard wire connections . My operating system is Windows XP Professional and I use a cable high speed interenet service. My router is out of the warranty period and NetGear will not provide tech support.

Hi, I was looking at the new, extremely expensive AD7200 from TP-link, and they are claiming all these super new speeds for Wi-fi. My concern is, there are no network cards out right now (that I could find anyway) that support the AD protocol, only AC. Is this just something you have to wait on? Or am I missing something?

I should add, the new AD protocol appears to support 60GHz, (up from the current king 5Ghz). But again, I do not see any adapters, usb, PCI-E or otherwise that support this.
 

A:Talon AD7200 Multi-Band Wi-Fi Router - Which network cards?

Do you really need that? Do you have gigabit internet? Are you transferring huge multi gig files wirelessly every day all day? The AD tech is only good in line of sight. Meaning your devices have to be in the same room as the router to see the benefit. The press releases for this router even say as such. I would wait until the tech is mature rather than buying it when it's in it's infancy.

I recently purchased and installed a Linksys RT31P2 wired router while converting to Vonage VoIP. I installed the RT31P2 behind an Actiontec GT-701 DSL Gateway (modem/router). I plugged a telephone into the RT31P2 and my VoIP phone service works great. Because my Actiontec GT-701 DSL Gateway only has 1ea Ethernet port, I had to remove my local computer from the Actiontec Ethernet port so that I could connect the RT31P2 to the same Ethernet port. After removing the local computer from the Ethernet port on the Actiontec GT-701, I moved it an open Ethernet port on the RT31P2. The local computer has Internet access and appears to work normally accept that it can no longer file or print share with the other computers on my home network. Prior to this change, I had 3ea wireless NIC-connected computers and the Ethernet-connected local computer configured onto my local network via the Actiontec GT-701 DSL Gateway. All of these computers were configured to file/print share and did so successfully. After the installation of the Linksys RT31P2 router, the local computer can no longer file/print share with the 3ea wireless NIC-connected computers. I have some basic networking knowledge and I understand that by adding the Linksys RT31P2, I have essentially created two networks. The problem appears to resolve around the fact that there two networks are currently not able to properly communicate in a manner that will allow file/print sharing between them.

For some time now, my home LAN has been experiencing some problems. The router (an ss2624 speedstream wireless) sometimes doesn't want to work, (or most of the time) and sometimes it does. I have three computers connected to it, and they all can access the router's web page. However, none of the computers recieve internet access.

One of my computers is able to connect the the cable modem directly and receive internet. I use all the numbers I see from running winipcfg on my directly connected computer when I setup the router, but for some reason the router will not work. I make it so that it uses a static IP address from the ISP (which I'm not entirely sure even is static, even though I always see that same IP address, I also see a DHCP server number) and also I put the DNS server I see, although I am able to choose between 4 different numbers. (I put the others as alternate.) Am I missing any information from my ISP?

A:Router configuration problems

Set your router back up to receive DHCP if your ISP requires it. Sometimes ISP's use private IP's for you, that conflict with your current router config. If your router IP is 192.168.1.1, then make sure the IP that you get from your ISP is not 192.168.1.(1-254) Earthlink is bad about this. If it is the case, just change your router (inside address, not the external ISP address) to 192.168.10.1 or something other than 192.168.1.1 just change the second to the last number to anything else.

Not the best at drawing a mental picture here. but

If WAN address is 192.168.1.1
and router is 192.168.1.1 , they conflict. Plus the router needs a different network like 192.168.2.1 for you to be NAT'd

Hope this helps.

I have a (hopefully rather basic) problem with the configuration of my new D-Link router DIR-657.

Now, what I had in mind was rather simple, but apparently I don't know the correct settings to
achieve it... (A lack of knowlegde on my side, I guess. I have some experience setting up simple
networks with a few windows computers and broadband modems, but the last time was some
time ago and this one here seems to be a bit more complicated than I thought...)

I have one PC (Win7 Ultimate 64) with a 3G modem (via USB) and want to use this computer (PC1)
and the 3G connection to act as the internet connection (using ICS) for my home network.
This computer now connects to the new D-Link router (via LAN).
I want to use this router to connect the other devices in this network (LAN/WLAN) with PC1 so they
can also use this internet connection (via ICS) and also for the other basic network uses (file sharing,
printing, ...).
The setup of ICS was not a problem (I think) and the local network (LAN/WLAN) is working alright,
but how do I have to configure the router so he "knows" that all internet traffic is going through the
3G connection (ICS) at PC1 (LAN port) and not its WAN port (which is empty) while maintaining
the functionality of the network (file sharing, printer,...) of course.

[FYI... I want to use PC1 (with 3G) for my internet connection because I want/need the VPN

is there a modem involved ?
if so make and model

do a power cycle - see below

------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to power cycle

“power cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

Dual band AC routers can be tricky as they sometimes are not compatible with older wireless N clients.

Best to upgrade any wireless n NIC's to AC NIC's if they can't connect consistently.

Also depends on if there are any other routers in the network, or if the modem is a modem/router or just stand alone modem, not enough information here for me to give directions.

Is there any security benefit (extra firewall, etc) from using two routers to connect to the internet. For example, this computer connects to port 1 on my Netgear. From the WAN port, a wire connects the port 4 of my Dlink. The WAN port of my DLink connects, of course, to my modem and the Internet. second question...how do I access the secondary router. Anytime I type in "192.168.0.1", I only access the DLink interface. (I was confused about configuring the Static IP on the secondary Netgear so I left it as is) Any ideas/ suggestions. Can I somehow use this dual router to my benefit?

I have a Netgear (RP614) and DLink (DI 714P+). Networking has always somewhat eluded me, and I was wondering what benefits/unique configurations may be derived from two routers.

Hi folks,

Glad to be on board, this website came highly reccommended by to me by some fellow members of a Boston Red Sox fansite, and I must say, the info here is great.

I finally have a question to ask:

Recently, I set up a pretty complete wired home network so that I could work from home more often. In so doing, I added two laptops and another desktop to my office, which used to house just a single desktop. They are all connected to my cable modem through a router.

Over the past several months, my partners and I have been using AIM and MSN Messenger's talk programs (I believe this is called Voice-over-IP, is it not?) pretty regularly throughout the day to stay in touch.

When the single PC was connected to the internet without a router, these programs worked easily and flawlessly. Now, as the four PC's are connected to the internet through the router (and are therefore behind the router's firewall??) I can not use either application for voice conversations on any one of the four PC's. Simply put, they will not establish a connection to my peers on the other end.

I am now on my second router (switched from D-Link to Belkin). The tech support from both companies has been horrible, and neither has been able to help me connect using these apps at all. They are all pretty sure that I will eventually need to open the correct port or ports, and will need to configure the router accordingly, but none of them seems to know how to do so themselves, and as suc...

Hello everyone.
I just acquired a tablet (Transformer Prime) and wanted to add another wifi router to my network connection as a way to increase the signal on my room. I tried following the instructions on this Linksys help article:
http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?pid=80&login=1&app=search&vw=1&articleid=4579

I've tried the first method described and completed all steps and still couldn't connect the second router. when i connect both by the ethernet socket only the first one, unaldutered, worked providing internet access to my PC by wire but the second one didn't increased reception on the tablet at all.
Ipconfig shows no sign of any other device besides the working router when they are connected by the ethernet socket. When i connect only the second router ipconfig reveals there is no "Connection-specific DNS Suffix" and "Default Gateway". I cant change options back to normal in the web browser because i dont have a default gateway number anymore

What have i done wrong? how can i fix this and configure this damn router to give me my precious wifi speed?
Any help would be appreciated and I'm verry sorry for the long and badly explained post (im a noob with pcs, to say the least)

BTW: first post, but I'll introduce myself later on a proper post
 

A:Problems with second router configuration

Reset the second router to factory default settings and try the following procedure. It is the same as your linked article Option 1, but maybe it will be easier for you to follow.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-... Read more

I sent over a Linksys DIR-615 router to a friend in Venezuela as he does not have any wireless internet, now from my understanding and what he has explained he has a modem to router connection already, however the router does not have wireless.

He got the router today and I told him to replace his current router with the one I sent him. Now the connection going from his modem to router wouldn't work in the WAN port. So we placed it in LAN ports along with his two PCs and great, he got internet on both computers but he can't access the router configuration to set the wireless.

Now I made sure it all worked before I sent it, I replaced the router I have at home with it and it worked with the IP 192.168.0.1
However when he enters that it doesn't bring him to the router configuration, nor with 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, 192.168.0.2 and some others.

So I told him to use ipconfig to get the gateway IP and trying to use that to access the router, but still it won't work.
The Ipconfig looked like:

Adaptador Ethernet Conexión de área local :

Sufijo de conexión específica DNS : cantv.net
Dirección IP. . . . . . . . . . . : 201.210.21.98
Máscara de subred . . . . . . . . : 255.255.224.0
Puerta de enlace predeterminada : 201.210.0.1

So basically I have come here in search for help on how I can get to the router configuration and enable the wireless for them.
Anything you ask I can ask of him and report back.

Thanks in advance!

Tips on setting up broadband connection, courtesy of Johnwill

You don't need any setup disk to configure a broadband router.
. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.
• Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
• Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
• Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
• Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
• Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
• Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

This usually means that a firewall is running somewhere between the two computers and is blocking ''domain''. windows has confirmed that windows firewall on this computer is correctly configured to allow this connection. However, a remote firewall might be blocking your connection.

The following policiy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect:

Policy provider: windows firewall firewall
filter name: query user

if the policy provider identified is windows firewall ,click for information about adjusting windows firewall settings. If a differnt policy provider has been identified, check the provider's documentation on how to adjust the policy settings.

Reset the network adaptor ''wireless network connection''
resetting the adaptors can sometimes resolve an intermittent problem.
 

A:Linksys router configuration issues

When Windows gives messages like that there are only two choices:

a. laugh; or

b. cry.

The problem goes away sometimes after 30 minutes with you doing nothing, right? Can you still access the router (ping it, or access its config or status pages)? Have you tried a reset or power cycle of the router? If so, does that clear the problem?

If it is a router problem about all you can do is make sure you have the latest firmware; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it. Next step after that is to replace it.

Hi, I have the TP-Link wired TL-R600VPN router. I was able to access its configuration page from my PC and set the security so that only the PC's MAC address would be able to access it. Now my PC's monitor died and I tried accessing the router's configuration from my laptop, and obviously the access was denied as the MAC address is different. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

If you have remote desktop setup on that computer you could remote into the the computer without a monitor other than that you may have to reset the router or if you have a computer running linux and you know the mac you could spoof it and logon

I can't seem to access the routers web configuration page, I get a Gateway Timeout message. I tried rebooting the router, then rebooted my system, but still nothing. It worked fine a few weeks ago. That was the last time I remember using it. I'm not sure what has happened. I checked the TCP/IP properties and everything is set to contain an IP address automatically. Plus in the ipconfig the default gateway is 192.168.0.1

I'm trying to run a server for a java application called mekwars. The program needs ports 2347 and 4867 open.

I have obtained an ip address from my ISP and registered with dyndns. I can ping my public ip address (my router)

I can access my server from any other computer in the LAN. My router is a Zyxel p660hn-T1a. I have configured port forwarding of both ports to my server.

I have disabled the firewall in the router and restarted it.

My server is running CentOS 6. I have opened the ports in the server iptables, I don't think this is the issue as I can connect from my lan to the server.

When I try to connect (from within my lan) to the public ip address of my server the program tells me it cannot find the server. I can't telnet to port 2347 and nmap tells me that the only ports that are open are 22, 23 and 80 ( I believe this are open by default on the router to allow remote management).

I can telnet from the lan. My networking isn't great and I'm used to having an "ip passthrough" option on the router to assign to my server. I do have it set as the default router in port-forwarding so I had hoped this would be a similiar option.

Hello,

Some of us don't use just a wireless router, but a combination of wireless and wired routers. In such cases the configuration of the devices can be a little tricky. But this thread it will be explained in depth, each step how to set up a wireless access points for laptops

This tutorial is going to explain how to set-up wireless for people who have setups similar to this model:

Modem -> Wired Router -> Wireless Router

Modem -> Wired Router -> Switch -> Wireless Router

***Note, there are pictures at the bottom of this post, use those for reference when going through this guide***

Supplies:

- Wireless router / power cord
- An ethernet cable to go from the router to the computer we'll be working with
- Oh, a computer with Internet Explorer or Firefox, no chrome yet lol

Step 1: Getting everything ready

- Take the wireless router, plug in the power, and take an ethernet cable from the back of the wireless router ***NOT THE INTERNET / WAN PORT but any port labled [1,2,3,4]*** plug the other end into the computer or laptop

- Now, once the laptop is booted up make sure its connected to the router
WIRED not WIRELESSLY

- Open up Internet Explorer or Firefox
- in the address bar type in the default router IP address which for dlink's is 192.168.0.1 for linksys products its usually 192.168.1.1 and hit enter
- if prompted for a username and password:
- dlink: username: admin password: blank

At work I am trying to figure out how to configure out wireless router. What I need to be able to do is to have people who use wifi to be able to also connect to our office file server (which will have shared printers so we can monitor usage amongst different departments). How can I do this? 90% of the office connects through wires using a static ip. Would I need to configure the router with a static ip as well? If so, would the wifi laptops need to have a static ip as well?
 

A:Wireless router configuration for use with file server

If there is a DHCP server on your office network, the following configuration for the router and allow the connections you seek. You could also use a wireless bridge if you haven't purchased yet.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

OK, I'll give a brief overview of what I'm working with and then describe my problem. I have a relatively new notebook (bought it about 2 months ago, I wouldn't think the exact specs are necessary but if they are let me know), a DSL connection and I have a Linksys Wireless-G router.

I've attempted to play two games online with a friend (Age of Empires 3 and Diablo 2), both of which resulted in nothing by headaches. In both games we attempted to directly connect to each other via IP. He also has a notebook and is using a wireless router. We've tried it both ways; me trying to connect to him and vice versa, same problem both times.

Now, I don't know a whole lot of anything about networking and routers and the such, but I'll put in what I do know.

Hi everyone,

I recently tried setting up a Buffalo WHR-G54s router on my desktop (which has Windows XP on it) so that I can access the internet with my laptop as well. I have no problems accessing the internet on my desktop after connecting everything, but I can't access the configuration page to set a password and change the SSID.

The default IP address of the router config is supposedly 192.168.11.1. However, when I run ipconfig /all, the default gateway is listed as 67.186.14.1. This IP address also pings successfully. Nowhere is 192.168.11.1 seen after running ipconfig /all.

When I try accessing either of these IP addresses in IE or Firefox, nothing happens. I even temporarily disabled all PopUp Blockers and shields (as far as I can tell) to see if that would help as well. But nothing seems to work. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!!!!

This lost me a bit because I have a double router configuration. The Actiontech PK5000 i turned into nothing more that an internet modem. I disabled the DHCP and configured my Linksys E1200 for all the internal DHCP so there is only one cable going to the PK5000. I should technically speaking look like one user on there network with natural protection from the second router.

I have a Netgear MR814 router. I used to be able to access the configuration screen by entering 192.168.0.1 in the address bar and then inputting the default username (admin) and password (password).

That stopped working a while ago. I decided to reset the router to its default setting by pressing and holding the reset button on the unit. It didn't seem to work. I can still access the internet, but I can't get to the configuration screen. Sometimes it says that the server is busy without giving me the option to enter a username and password. Other times it does ask for the username and password. When I input them, it seems like it is going to work and the screen starts to load. Then it asks me enter the username and password again.

Hi Guys (and Gals?)

SUMMARY:
I want to add a second wireless router to my existing home network. Also I plan to upgrade to a "smart" (internet-connected) TV within the next year so I'm trying to plan ahead. I have a decent-sized house with many THICK walls (no drywall here!). Tech-oriented family of 4.

Other details:

1. Existing router is Linksys E3000 and has served well.

2. Four endusers in house: all technophiles and heavy data users, often simultaneously.
-- Son connects his self-built gaming monster machine via Ethernet. Hard core gamer thus streaming is critical. Also art student but I'd say his build has accommodated those needs well.
-- Hubby laptop PC and tablet and phone; streaming to tablet is critical, esp. from upper floor bedroom.
-- Daughter phone and laptop; streams to both, often from upper floor bedroom.
-- Yours truly mom, (and network admin)... heavy reliance on self-built desktop (Win 8.1), Asus laptop (Win 7), tablet, smartphone (often all simultaneously), streaming, bluetooth(s) (plural?) , whatever else I come up with.

3. 3 TV's that use the cable modem, but I plan (hope!) to swap one of these in next year to a smart TV (love the Roku I use now, which of course connects to my wonderful e3000 router) The TV to swap is on main floor, front of house.

Are you concerned about 'ac' vs. 'n' because of file copies (or streaming) on your LAN? Or is your internet access faster than you can handle with 'n' Wi-Fi?

If you use a SOHO router as wireless access point following is the complete procedure.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

A:Router Help! Local Area Connection Doesn't Have a Valid IP Configuration.

The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

Note that the wireless encryption and channel selection will have to be done after the basic wired connection is established, the first step is to get wired connections working.

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

The router has been set up to use WPA-TKIP encryption on channel 6 with an always-on PPPoE connection; it also has an IP of http://192.168.2.1 to avoid an IP conflict with the DSL Modem. DHCP Server is enabled with default settings, MAC Address Clone is disabled, and Operating Mode is set to Gateway.

Hello everybody,

I'm reletively new on this forum and I've spent a lot of time reading posts here concerning innovative installation methods and various approaches to partitioning. This forum really has some great info and users!

I'm an old school guy going back to the days before PCs even existed. Electronics has always circulated in my bloodstream. I'm an old dog but open to new tricks.

I decided to overhaul my primary workhorse computer (See this thread for full description) by adding an SSD and rearranging my drivespace, as one of my drives was failing. I had an 80GB Vertex2 SSD scavanged from another system and thus I hatched my new partition scheme to use it.

Long story short is that after multiple trials I came to the conclusion the SSD was causing me much trouble, probably failing due to it's age. 80GB was a mighty tight fit anyway to boot 3 operating systems. So today I ordered a new SSD, a low cost 120GB Sandisk Plus from Amazon, paying less than $40 including shipping by using a discount coupon I had.

At this point I'm asking myself whether I should scrap all of the MBR partitioned disks and use only GPT disks. In reading this thread I see it's now possible to boot Windows installed on GPT using a non UEFI, legacy BIOS, which is good b/c that's all my mobo supports. That thread also requires at least a minimal MBR image, be it on a floppy VHD or other virtual image, or via some other clever "trick" to allow either winload.exe or bootmgr to live in... Read more

In order for an operating system to fully support storage devices that have capacities that exceed 2 terabytes (2 TB, or 2 trillion bytes), the device must be initialized by using the GUID partition table (GPT) partitioning scheme. This scheme supports addressing of the full range of storage capacity. If the user intends to start the computer from one of these large disks, the system’s base firmware interface must use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS.

This is probably the most painful issue I have with Windows 10 right now (and likely previous versions as well, but I didn't have a multi-monitor setup back then).

The monitors I have are as follows:
3840x2160 (4K UHD) monitor with preferred DPI: 144 (150%)1920x1080 (Full HD) monitor with preferred DPI: 96 (100%)

Whenever one of these monitors are set as primary, all desktop applications displayed on the secondary monitor (doesn't matter which) has blurry text. Exceptions are the Windows Store Apps like Windows Store and Microsoft Edge, along with the Taskbar/Start Menu, the Taskbar/Start Menu settings screen, the Taskbar context menu, and the desktop context menu which passes the DPI test with flying colours, with crispy text on both monitors (occasionally a DPI switch bug gets in, but I can mostly ignore that). The problem is, as you can probably guess, is that >99% of the applications I use aren't Windows Store Apps.

Here are some screenshots. The "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" text is what the text should look like while the Visual Studio 2015 text is an example of the text most desktop apps get. The blurry image is what happens when the UHD monitor is not the primary monitor.

Whenever one of these monitors are set as primary, all desktop applications displayed on the secondary monitor (doesn't matter which) has blurry text. Exceptions are the Windows Store Apps like Windows Store and Microsoft Edge, along with the Taskbar/Start Menu, the Taskbar/Start Menu settings screen, the Taskbar context menu, and the desktop context menu which passes the DPI test with flying colours, with crispy text on both monitors (occasionally a DPI switch bug gets in, but I can mostly ignore that). The problem is, as you can probably guess, is that >99% of the applications I use aren't Windows Store Apps.

Here are some screenshots. The "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" text is what the text should look like while the Visual Studio 2015 text is an example of the text most desktop apps get. The blurry image is what happens when the UHD monitor is not the primary monitor.

Note: Both of these screenshots came from the 150% DPI monitor so it's best viewed at that (144) DPI level. The 96 DPI monitor is similarly affected.

I have a table that lists every MLS system,the state and coverage area. There are multiple entries for each county

I am trying to convert this to a table that has one entry per county and includes all the MLS that are active in that county.

I have attached a sample set of data to display the current and desired table structure.

Is there a way to do this in excel via a formula/s?

I have attempted multiple combinations of index and match but I can't seem to figure it out. I need to match on the state and then look to see if the county is in the range of County 1 to County 3. If it does exist I need to display the name of the MLS system.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

I have a 9800 GX2 card and always want to run two monitors. In the Nvidia Control Panel set-up under 3D settings and sub heading "Set Multi-GPU Config" I have the recommended option of Multi-GPU Mode, but if I select that, the second monitor stays blank. I assume because my card has two GPU's internally SLI connected and you (to date) can't run two monitors when SLI invoked?

Assuming that is correct

1. Is Nvidia working to overcome this major hurdle of SLI and 2 Monitors?
2. If I use Triple Head to Go, will this allow me to select Multi-GPU and still have two monitors and will I have better performance?

A:Multi GPU Mode Versus Multi Display

When you use SLI, the secondary GPU shuts the output off, so you can't connect a monitor to the second GPU. It's always been like this with Nvidia SLI. I'm quite sure if you use an external multi-monitor device, you could set multiple monitors up while still haveing SLI enabled.

OK. My computer multi-boots to Windows 7 & 8 right now. 8 is on an SSD.

I am thinking about adding another HDD, moving 8 to the new HDD, and installing Windows 10 [Technical Preview] onto the SSD. If I disconnect the drives with 7 & 8 during the install, then add them to the boot menu after, can I make the computer boot to the HDD with 8, have that boot menu default to 8, with 7 & 10 as options, and if I make the computer boot off the SSD default to 10 with 7 & 8 as options?

A:Multi-Boot & Multi-Harddrive booting

Clone or image Windows 8 to a partition you create on the HD, boot into it or Windows 7 to add the other OS to a Dual Boot menu using EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required).

Unplug the 7/8 hard drive, plug in the SSD to Clean Install Windows 10 Technical Preview.

After install plug back in the hard drive, boot it when needed using the one-time BIOS boot menu key, leaving the SSD as drive set first to boot in BIOS setup.

If this is not to your liking, then boot into the hard drive OS from which you set up the Dual Boot with EasyBCD, add Windows 10 to the Dual Boot menu using type Windows 8.1. You'll now have a Multi-Boot menu for all OS's, but the drives will still remain independently bootable, whereas if you'd installed TP to SSD with the hard drive plugged in, it will configure a Dual Boot which makes the SSD's boot entirely dependent upon the HD.

I've recently purchased a second 500GB disk for my rig already containing a 250GB disk.
I've read quite a bit about partitioning strategies and I've still got a few questions that I couldn't seem to find subjective answers for.
First off, I'm looking at have a multi boot system with at least 3 OS.
1 primary XP install
1 secondary XP install with only my CAD programs
1 vista install
then I'm also looking Linux/Ubuntu. one of my concerns in if I put a small partition at the beginning of the first disk then my 4th partition for OS ends up being a extended logical partition, no? I read somewhere that O/S can only start from Primary partition, But I also read at http://partition.radified.com/ that he's put O/S on Extended logical drives)

here's how I propose to setup my disks:

DISK 1 - 25OGB TOTAL (ACUTAL ~230GB)
P1 - 5 GB - FAT32 - for DOS based utilities/programs
P2 - 40 GB - NTFS - Primary XP w/most programs
P3 - 25 GB - NTFS - Secondary XP w/ only CAD programs
P4 - 30 GB - NTFS - Vista
E1 - 15 GB - FAT32? - Linux/Ubuntu
E2 - 5 GB - FAT32? - Linux swap.
E3 - 50 GB - NTFS - MULTI CD/DVD PROGRAMS
E4 - 50 GB - NTFS - RESERVE
E5 - 10 GB - BACK-UP IMAGES

DISK 2 - 500GB TOTAL (ACTUAL ~470GB)
P1 - 5 GB - NTFS - PAGEFILE
P2 - 30 GB - NTFS - BACK-UP O/S
P3 - 20 GB - FAT32 - RESERVE
E1 - 400 GB - NTFS - DATAT(MY DOCUMENTS FOLDER)
E2 - 15 GB - NTFS BACK-UP IMAGES

let me know what you guys think.
 

A:Multi hard disks, multi o/s partitioning

The Windows OS has issues starting from anything other than the C:\ drive, so you may have to load the OS in separate directories on that partition and utilize a boot menu to select which configuration you desire at boot.

As for Linux, I am not aware of any such limitations, but YMMV. Good Luck.

Recently I reinstalled the OS on my computer. It was shipped with Windows XP HE SP2, but I formatted and put Win98 onto the system. Needless to say, it froze up at the Windows splash screen. So, I uninstalled it and put XP back on. My question here is, is there any possible way to put Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows XP all on one hard drive, and it work? I know how to partition the hard drive accordingly for the deed, it's getting the computer to actually run 95, 98, and 3.1. I'm cheating fate here, since I know 3.1 probably won't run on my 32-bit structure system, but it's worth a try.

My system is a Dell Dimension 4700 with 3.0 gHz CPU, 256 mb of RAM, and an nVidia 64 mb video card. Any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:Multi Partition Boot/Multi OS install

The XP boot loader will let you boot XP and one DOS-based Windows version (Win 9x or Win3.1). However, you can't run multiple versions of Win9x and Win3.1 on the same system -- unless there is potentially some 3rd-party boot loader that can do this, but I can't recommend one.

Ok, I have Windstream DSL that connects through a Siemens 4200 modem that goes into my linksys wrt54g wireless router. So how exactly do I access the modem, if when I type in 192.168.1.1 goes to the router. How can I access the modem to port foward? The only current way I can get to access settings on my modem is to go to Windstream.net and go to configurations in the top right. From there I can access the modem. Is there any way to port foward with this modem?

Hi,

I have a series of applications that depend on an INI file being in the Windows directory.

Also, many diffeent users are allowed to log on and change the INI file.

But Windows 7 places changed INI files in USER directories for the logged-on users.

So my Apps never get to see the changes!

How do I get Windows 7 to place my INI file in Windows directory where I need it?

A:multi users, multi ini files

Uhhh...An application storing its configuration in the Windows directory is foolish, what are these broken applications you are using?

Hmm, that actually depends on how are you gonna image the hard drive. If you are using an external hard drive to store the image of your internal one, you don't have to.

I would like to purchase a full version of Windows 7 Home Premium (not an upgrade) and install it on two different machines. Is this possible or do I need to buy 2 full copies of Windows 7? Can I just buy the one copy and get like a multi-license? Amazon sells Windows 7 Family Pacs for but it's an upgrade version. I couldn't find any info on Microsoft's web site regarding multiple licensing at all. Thanks in advance.

A:Multi-Machine, Multi-License?

Bug67, I also have not found any multi copies of windows 7 full versions for sale. Outside of buying OEM copies which are a lot cheaper than the full box versions.
Beware of anyone telling you that the copies they sell are for multi installs which could be a technet or msdn copies which are not for resale.
