Anyone have experience with 802.11a devices and a 802.11n wireless router?

Q: Anyone have experience with 802.11a devices and a 802.11n wireless router?

A friend currently has a Belkin wireless G router and uses a D-Link DGL-3420 gaming adapter to connect her XBox 360 to her wireless network. This configuration works fine but she did have an issue where the connection was lost and the troubleshooting tool on the Xbox 360 recommended using an 802.11a connection to avoid possible interference problems. Apparently, the wireless Xbox 360 controller she uses broadcasts at 2.4GHz, just like 802.11g.

So, I'm looking at replacing her Belkin router with one that supports 802.11a. I see 802.11n wireless routers should support 802.11a/b/g devices but I was wondering if anyone here had any "real world" experience with connecting to a 802.11n wireless router using 802.11a.

Did it work for you? Have any problems?

Thanks!

Peace...

A: Anyone have experience with 802.11a devices and a 802.11n wireless router?

I've connected to my ZyXEL N router using an 802.11a adapter, worked just fine. That's a sample of one.

Both my DSL modem router and a wireless surveillance system (cameras and receiver) use the 2.4 GHz frequency; of course, one inactivates the other.
Does anyone know a DSL modem router operating in another frequebcy range (fixed or adjustable)? :evil: :evil:
 

A:2.4 GHz for modem router and other wireless devices?

802.11a WiFi standard uses the ~5GHz frequency. These devices are considered enterprise class though and cost more than your normal wireless.

Have you tried changing the channel on your current WiFi gear? Changing it from 1 to 13 for example may be enough to make both your systems fit into the band.

I have a Cisco Linksys E1200 router. Three computers are wired to it while my laptop connects to it wirelessly. When I look at the network topology (Network and Sharing Center->See full map), it shows that my laptop is connected to E1200 (this one has the same name as the router but different icon. The icon has an antenna. Thus, I think it is some kind of wireless device) which is connected to a switch, then a hub, then to the E1200.

Why are there three devices between the wireless router and my laptop?

A:Why so many devices between my laptop and the wireless router?

Just a quick guess....

Is one of the "wired" computers set to use Internet Connection Sharing? My dad (80 y.o. and still buying the latest hardware) did that once in the XP days and had an issue similar to yours. He never lost connectivity, but took the long way to get there. Found the issue doing a traceroute.

So I have a TP-LINK TL-WR841ND 300Mbps router and the basic problem is, that it repeatedly drops the internet connection and also the devices connected to it. But the my main computer, which is wired to the router has never had any problem, even at the time,when the wireless doesn't work. I use many os like win7, ios 5.1.1 on iPad 3rd, a samsung smart tv and a samsung smartphone with android. But as I mentioned it only happens with wireless, never with the wired computer. When the problem occurs there is no device, which can connect to the internet and to the router, except the wired one.

I've tried all of the encryptions and security methods, at the moment I use WPA2-PSK with AES (also tried with TKIP and automatic mode, and with disabled security too), but neither have helped me. Then I contacted the reseller and they gave me a new one, and said it could have had some special problem. The new one, which I'm using now, got the same problem.

Have any ideas why this problem occurs repeatedly? Or if you need more information about my devices, router or settings, please write me. Thanks in advance!

About a year ago, my wireless router would randomly not allow any wireless devices to connect to the network. A wired cable worked fine, but not wireless. So we had to unplug the router, and then it would work fine.

You could see the device, but not connect. We moved our wireless phone a little farther away from the router thinking it was interfering, but still no luck. It didn't matter if it was an iPod, our BluRay player, or a laptop. Sometime days would go by with no problem, and some days we would restart the router three or four times.

So we replaced the router, only to have the same problem. We called tech support, but they were no help. So we changed from a local ISP to Comcast, replaced the router for a third time (Cisco Wireless N), and we are still having the same problem. Any ideas?

Evening all ! 
 
This is is driving me bonkers !
 
I recently changed the wireless access password on my BT Infinity router and disconnected every device - including 4 phones, 2 iPads a laptop and an aging Vista PC. 
 
I've changed all the passwords on all the devices and they all connect again to the hub under the new password - except the PC ! 
 
The PC connects via a Belkin USB adapter.
The wireless network appears - highlight, click connect - says getting information from BTHub, eventually asks for the password - enter my new password - and immediately get Windows cannot connect. 
 
Things I've tried :
 
Rebooted BTHub
Rebooted PC (several times)
Control Panel > Network and sharing centre > Manage Wireless Networks  and deleted network profiles. 
Deleted the USB adapter and reinstalled. 
 
The Belkin device is working OK as I can connect to an non-secure BT Hotspot on the PC and it's blue light flashes (as normal) when communicating with the BTHub.
 
Any advice greatly appreciated - this is the Old machine I've dedicated to the kids for You Tube etc. - they ain't happy !!!!!!!!!
 
 
Many thanks
 
Blue Sierra 

A:Changed wireless router password for security - all devices connect except PC !

Was the driver downloaded from the Belkin site? Right click the adapter in Device Manager and select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and paste the first line in your next post. There may be a later driver available, especially if an intel chipset is used.
 
What is the model number of the Belkin? Did you change the encryption type on the router? i.e. from WPA to WPA2? TPIK to AES?

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

I currently have a Linksys WRT55AG router and I'm getting tired of poor wireless online gaming. Now, dont get me wrong, I understand that wireless gaming will never be its wired equivalent, however I would like at least a somewhat stable gaming/dl'ing environment where I dont have disconnects and lag spikes every 10mins.

I am currently connected to my router from the exact opposite side of a fairly large house (I know, I know but I cant do anything about it) and have weak signal strength and low mbps.

I'm looking into the D-Link DIR-635 Rangebooster Pre-N 650, the D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N, and the D-Link DGL-4300 Wireless G Gaming router and I'm leaning toward the DIR-635 due to the price.

If anyone could make any suggestions, reccommendations, or offer any advice as to where to go for the best wireless gaming experience for my next router I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
 

A:Best Wireless Gaming Experience

Better off getting the High Power Wireless Gaming Router, the High Gain ANT is very strong more like 6db Gain or more. I was going to get one but the price is so high.

I have two Buffalo wireless high power turbo g mimo WHR-HP-G54 $59 each and Buffalo wirless high power turbo g mimo WLITX4G54HP $59. I had to get two one isn't enough if you have more than one floor in you house. Upstairs I had to put the second one. My signal strength when from low to excellent. I set the output to 100% wireless power. All 3 can handle 125Mbps. Routers can be use Wireless Access Points.

What you have there is a weak Wireless Router for average user. You want to do heavy duty wireless gaming you're going something with more power can be adjusted to suite any type of environment. I place both wireless routers/access point in the corner point on each floor near window. Remember if you want to cover large dwelling you're going to need two routers or repeaters.

Again the Dlink Gamer Wireless Router is close to what I have from Buffalo which can handle just about any type of connections. The new N is suppose to be better, but turbo G high power is about equal.

Hi All

I am experiencing regular (every 15 mins) drop outs from my Linksys wireless broadband router (WRT54G) and it has become very, very frustrating. I cannot establish why this is occurring at all. It does seem to happen when other PC's in my house 'join' the network (we have 5 PC's wifi and 1 Ethernet), but happens regularly at other times too when nothing else is happening. My wife and I will be on our laptops and find ourselves both asking each other... "do you have a connection" at the same time

Sometimes it comes back, but most often I have to reset the router by switching it off and then on again.

I am considering purchasing an alternative router and am wondering which one experts here could perhaps recommend I purchase as a replacement.

I am happy to go for a wireless 'g' router, and I'd also like it to be able to take ethernet cabling (the WRT54G has 4 ports).

So can anyone suggest what model I should go for?

Also - I would love to know if anyone has ideas as to why my wifi network keeps dropping out? (apologies if I ought to have put that in another thread) This has only started happenign over the last 2 to 3 months, the router is approx 1 year old though I don't have the receipt. I really want a stable internet connection for my home network as it does et used a lot. I have also noticed a slowing down of our apparent 10MB Broadband internet connection (NTL now Virgin Media).

Ahh, HP. How times have changed. I've been using HP for many many years and it seems to get worse with every product I buy. First my DV9000 has a GPU failure. Then my 8560p has a GPU failure. So, I get a new notebook, whatever was the best one in stock at my local Staples, since I needed one fast. Ended up with this 15-ac144ND. i7 CPU, Dedicated radeon card, 8 Gigs of ram, full HD matte screen, and a bottom of the barrel wireless card. No 5Ghz, no AC, no bluetooth. Whatever, wireless cards cost $20 and take 10 minutes to install. Or so I thought. After downloading the service manual, I see the Intel 3165 listed as an option for the wireless card in my machine. It would fit my needs and is readily available. Since the service manuals are usually full of sh*t, I decide to ask HP Support. They verify with their resources that yes, the Intel 3165 is 100% compatible with my machine and I can go ahead with the upgrade. I get my 3165 yesterday and guess what? Doesn't work. I put it in and the computer acts like there is nothing in the slot at all. Not detected in device manager (and before you ask, yes, i did try all the drivers I could think of) nor is it detected in the BIOS. Whatever, might be a dead card right? After all, I didn't get any BIOS errors telling me there's an incompatible wireless card installed. So why won't it detect?

Yes. The key is the RJ-45 on the modem; you need a broadband router with a WAN ethernet port. That model will do fine. And you'll then connect the laptop to the router via wireless or a straight ethernet cable. You may need a cross over cable to go between the router and the modem.

Since we don't support sharing neighbor's wireless, we also don't help with problems trying to expand on that connection. Note that sharing like this is against the terms of service for your ISP. Think of it as stealing the monthly rental from the ISP.

Hi, I'm an undergrad at University of Illinois and I just moved into a new apartment. A couple days ago we subscribed to Insight High Speed internet and were given a motorola broadband modem hooked into a cable jack behind the TV. Since the three of us at my place use laptops we bought a wireless Belkin G Router. We set it up and it worked fine but then it started to have problems. What happens now is the computers will be connected fine but then pages will timeout. The network will still be connected and signal strength will say it is fine but no browsing can be done. Repairing the network does nothing. What we end up doing is just turning the modem off and on again, but it has gotten to the point where you have to do it several times an hour. There are a lot of other networks in my complex so I'm thinking it may be signal interference. I'm not an expert in this field but I have some sense of what I'm doing, but all the same I need help.

Recently I purchased a new wireless N router, and have moved the older wireless G router downstairs, where I hope to be able bridge a connection between the two. Google results, ironically enough, have suggested Googling instructions on setting such a thing up.

Connected to this computer (which is upstairs) is the new one, a Belkin Wireless N model no. F5D8236-4 Version 1. Downstairs the the old Linksys Wireless G model no. WRT54GS Version 6. I have a friend who works a lot with networking, who is skeptical of the idea, but Googling it has returned hope that it is possible. The main dispute is how.

Here's the setup: This computer is wired to the Belkin router, which is wired into the modem and is also currently hosting the house's wireless network. The Linksys is downstairs wired only to my Xbox 360. My attempts at even trying to find where to configure these routers have proved pathetic, so I've been driven here.

Could this work, and will it work with these two routers? If so, how do I go about it?

What I want to do is use one of them to pick up signal from the other and use it as a wired router since my comps don't have wireless cards in them. Basically I would be using one of them as the wireless card and running ethernet cable to the comps from there. Is this possible, and if so how? I'm doing this because the connection point in the house is too far from where I want to put my computer. I am **not** trying to steal someone elses signal.

I am using a Netgear MR814 Cable/DSL Wireless Router to share a DSL connection. I have it upstairs connected to the modem and one computer. Downstairs I have four computers that need to be networked and have access to the connection. I have a D-Link DWL-810+ Wireless Bridge to communicate with the Netgear wireless router upstairs. I want to connect this wireless bridge to a Netgear RT314 Broadband Router. When I plug the Wireless bridge directly into one of my computers' ethernet ports I am able to connect to the internet. If, however, I plug it into the routers "Internet" port, I am unable to communicate with the bridge. Whenever I try to access the wired router's configuration utility(192.168.0.2) it asks for a password lets me access the main menu, but then I lose connection to the setup utility and have to reset the modem to be able to do the same thing again. This last issue only began to occur after I decided to plug the D-Link Bridge directly into my computer.

I realize that this is a rather extensive list of problems but help on any one of them would be great. I also realize that there are other ways to do this with different equipment, but different equipment is not free (The wired router was given to me) So if anyone knows anything that could get these working for me I would really appreciate it.

I have My PC (Win7) with Netgear WGR614v7 connected by Wired LAN to Topfield 7100 Pvr and Laptop (XP Pro). My main concern is the Topfield Pvr which must download programs from IceTV Interactive for Recording. After setting it up as DHCP (reccommended by both Ice TV and Topfield) and Pinging both ways to prove connection, I logged into the Router to check Network Status. The Topfield was displayed in the Attached Devices Page of the Router. Satisfied that all was setup OK, I logged out of the Router. Later in the day, I again logged into the Router to again check the Status of the Network. The only thing showing in the Attached Devices was: My Pc - the Topfield and the Laptop, both previously present, were not displayed in the Attached Devices Page, even though they were still Connected, On, and able to be pinged. The bring them back, I have to Re Activate the Topfield connection, unplug and replug the Cable on the Laptop.

I have a wireless broadband router (linksys WRT54G). I recently signed up for vonage, and got a VoIP router (linksys RT31P2), that doesn't have wireless.

Would it be better to plug in the cable modem to the VoIP router, then the

Cable modem---VoIP router---Wireless router-----Computers
or to get an all-in-one VoIP/Wireless router like the WRTP54G:
Cable modem---VoIP/wireless router---Computers

Would there be advantages/disadvantages to either?

Thanks
 

A:Single VoIP/Router/Wireless combo or seperate VoIP and Wireless router

There would probably be less configuration hassles with the all-in-one solution. OTOH, you have a bit more flexibility with the two boxes, I currently have my Vonage adapter hooked to the LAN side of my router, caused too many glitches when it was between the modem and the router.

So I have had the same router for years now (Belkin f5d7623-4) and whilst its had its problems over the years its generally been okay. On my home network I have my Sony Vaio and my Asus, a ps3, both my iphone 4 and 5, my samsung tv, as well as my mum's acer netbook and her galaxy s3.

My iphone 4 is a few years old now and has for some time struggled to consistently connect and stay connected to the wifi, my asus had some problems but they were hardware related and I fixed them a couple of months ago. The acer netbook had been connecting to the wifi fine since my mum was given it when a few months ago it suddenly wouldnt connect and no matter what I did to the settings of the laptop or router it could not be solved, as my mum is not heavily reliant on technology we got her a long ethernet cable as a short-term fix. A few weeks later I wanted to use the internet functions of my samsung tv so I took the cable from the netbook as my mum wasnt there at the time. When my mum returned she complained about me having taken the cable but then found her netbook was working over the wifi again, since then it has stopped working with the wifi again. My vaio and ps3 have never suffered problems before and my 5 has only began to struggle since being water damaged.

A:Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain

With the iphone I would try to forget the wifi network under your settings and then trying to reconnect it. They have weird issues like this often and that usualy fixes the issues. I have also have seen issues in the past with how my wireless routers have been configured. I have seen issues with mixed mode configurations and such. Can you send me any information on how your wireless router is configured?

Basically, what's happened is that after transferring my old PC's data onto my new one, and putting that one in place of my old one, therefore hooking up my modem to it, my wireless devices have been having trouble connecting to the router. Everything's hooked up fine, and it was working perfectly before, but now my devices such as my laptop and Droid Pro can SEE the router (As in connect to it and say that they are getting excellent signal strength), but when I try to open my browser, it asks as if I'm not connected to anything at all. The PC that's wired to the modem through the router works fine, however.

Hello,

Hello,

Yesterday afternoon, my internet appeared to have gone down. I attempted to fix it in the usual way (turn it off and on) but to no avail. I assumed it must be on the ISPs end and continued on with my day.

The internet was still not working this morning, so I checked to see if it might be the router that is causing the issue. Lo and behold, I can access the internet through the modem. Great, router is bust.

Reconfigured it, I updated the firmware, and then did a series of ping tests.

Ping test to google through the ethernet was successful. Ping test to router IP address through the router was successful. Ping test to google through router was unsuccessful.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Just to reiterate, this is an issue across all devices (Mac, PC, iPhone/iPad, Android, PS3, etc... )
 

A:Router spontaneously stops working across all devices

Hopefully, you know and can still log into the router.
find the WAN side, specifically Router Status or that display that
shows:

IP Address (the public address, not 192.x.y.z)
Default Gateway (your connection to the ISP)
DHCP Server (will not be one of your lan addresses)
Subnet Mask

DNS Server
Lease Obtained
Lease Expires
if any of the first three are missing, then the modem did not feed the information to the router
OR the router did not save it.

disconnect the modem->router
power off both
wait one minute
power on the modem
connect the router (but still powered off)
when the modem is fully sync'd with the ISP
power on the router
from your computer

ping 8.8.8.8 (a ping by address)
nslookup google.com (a dns request that should resolve to an address)

ping google.com (a ping that requires nslookup to work)

Hi,
In the past 3 days I've noticed that I periodically get randomly redirected via link bucks when browsing the internet. It was odd when it happened on my nexus 7 tablet but also has started happened on the 2 laptops that are connected to my router.
There's no specific pattern, time or website but it is certainly happening on websites that wouldn't use link bucks (Facebook/university e-mail). I have security software installed on all devices (lookout on nexus 7, MSE on windows 7 laptops).
Any advice anyone could offer would be appreciated, its getting annoying now!
Thanks!
P.s. - at the same time my nexus 7 stopped connecting to Google now with a connection error, but only when connected to my network, on other networks it works fine

Simple router disconnecting from a power source will NOT do.Restart computer and check for redirections.NOTE. You may need to re-check your router security settings, as described HERE

I was curious to how vulnerable my home wireless network is to viruses based on the fact that there is constantly people coming and going on different devices such as iPADs, blackberrys, and droids. When they use my wireless connection, is data thats being sent/recieved on their devices prone to intrude my network and eventually end up in my PC?

Thanks
Eric

A:Wireless devices and wireless networks

No, unless you have your pc set to receive files through sharing. Look in your advanced sharing settings, and only if you want, you can turn off file and printer sharing. There is a password setting on it so it makes it harder for people to break in if you have it enabled in the same sharing settings window. Here is a screenshot so you can see what it is:



Default is set to share, but the password is enabled. Even in sharing, most of the time they cannot give you anything (viruses, files, etc) unless you set the folders to be able to be modified. Sharing can be good with password enabled, as you can use printers or connect to friendly computers without having to use storage from somewhere else on the internet.

On the flip side, if you are using a stranger's Wireless network, they are able to give you viruses (however, this requires them to have some kind of sophistication and a deliberate desire to infect your computer). That is why you don't "barrow", or steal rather, someone else's wifi

I have been trying to find a way to connect, forward the signal, recieve the signal from my Verizon Fios wireless router up to my WGT624 V3 Netgear router.

Is there a way that I can modify my wirless port on my Netgear to recieve a signal wirelessly from my Verizon Wireless router?

My Neighbor did it once with another wireless router, but he can not remember how he did it. I am thinking it had something to do with the Firmware.

If anyone can help me with this that would be great.

I'm basically trying to push the wireless signal from my Verizon router in my basement, up to my wireless Netgear router which is recieving the signal on the main level so that I can plug my wired (non wireless) laptop into the ethernet port which is receiving wireless signal from the Verizon router in the basement in order to gain access to the internet.

Can this be done with the equipment listed above and or some additional firmware and configuration?

Thank you for all your assistance on this in advance.

Hello,

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.

So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.
 

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

So here is my case:

SETUP:

Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (192.168.1.1).

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts 192.168.1.1 and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Problem:
Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode. Even if I cut the WRT160N out of the loop and connect the computer direct to the DM111PSP. No internet,... Read more

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together
From a John Will Post

http://library.techguy.org/wiki/Connecting_two_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.

I was trying to make my sister-in-law's wireless connection secure (they've had wireless set up for awhile unsecured), and all seemed to go well until magically, it didn't. It allowed me to set up a password -WPA2/Personal, it was fine, other devices (ipod Touch and another laptop) connected to the network by putting in the right key. HOWEVER, the original laptop, now wants no part of connecting to this network. It finds the network, but doesn't even let me get to a stage at which I need to enter the WPA key. It automatically says it can't connect, and is very useless when I hit "Diagnose the problem". I am only marginally less clueless than the people that asked for my help, so please don't get too technical on me. I have spent hours trying to figure out what the problem is, and though I know it's obviously something with the computer's setting, I don't know what that is.

When I go to the Network and Sharing Center, rather than being a three-way "map", it's two - the computer, then the internet. There is nothing (ie, router) in between. I have no idea how to get that step back in there.

Greetings!

I have subscribed to DSL and Teleco Video (cable) through my phone company. They provided the Westell Modem (Model #D90-740010-06). It has 4 ports but 3 goto the televisions for cable and the other is going to my personal computer.

I have a Compusa SKU:333628 wireless router I want to connect so i can also use my laptop.

my ISP will not assist since the connection works with model/personal computer with hardwired.

I thought I could just run a cable from one of the ports on the DSL/Router to the WAN port on my Wireless Router, however this did not work. So I ran a cable from one of the ports on the DSL/router to a regular ethernet port on the wireless routher (not the WAN) and I could hardwire both the desktop pc and wireless and connect to internet however the wireless would never work, my pc says wireless is connect but when I open IE or firefox it does not connect.

Can someone please help, I am going insane.

The following link will take you to the manual for my wireless router:

http://fmi.compusa.com/driver.asp?SKU=333628

and the following is the datasheet for the westell model/router

You have 2 routers - they are both trying to issue IP addresses so it is not surprising that there is a problem. If you can disable DHCP on the wireless router it might work as a wireless switch or hub. It is worth a try.

I recently got qwest DSL and I configured my Wireless to work and accept my wireless MAC Address, but when I plug it into the WAN slot in the Linksys router it doesn't work. I went to linksys site and did their configuration which is changing the router LAN IP to 192.168.0.1, then power cycling, but this doesn't help. I cannot access the internet still. Both the modem/router and the router are operating DHCP, but if I disable the modem/router, I cannot access the wireless function, and if I disable the DHCP on my Linksys router, I cannot obtain an IP from the modem router via the linksys router.

This is frustrating lol.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am connecting Netgear wireless router (wgr614 v5) to an already placed router on the network (Nortel Networks Router). I am having trouble with wireless router because the Nortel router is DHCP disabled. Please if someone could help me, I would greatly appreciate. Please, explain step by step how to configure the wireless router to work with Nortel router.

Welcome to TSG:

See if this tip from Johnwill,addresses your issue.

Connecting two soho routers in a network

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-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).

Hi Vonage experts,

A long time ago, someone helped set up my computer network, and now I need to do something, but I don't know how. I know the solution must be extremely simple, but I just don't know what to do.

Basically, I have:

- a computer
- a Vonage modem
- an SMC wireless router
- a cable Internet modem

As I'm writing, I keep going back and forth to look at the set up, to make sure that I'm writing a really accurate description. The way the system is set up is:

1. An ethernet cable connects the cable modem to the Internet port of the Vonage modem

2. An ethernet cable connects the LAN port of the Vonage modem to the "LAN 3" port of the SMC wireless router

3. An ethernet cable connects the "LAN 4" port of the SMC wireless router to my computer

4. A phone cord connects the Phone 1 port of the Vonage modem to my telephone

Note 1: nothing goes to the WAN port of the SMC wireless router.
Note 2: the Vonage modem is set to DHCP
Note 3: the LAN configuration of my computer says "Obtain an IP address automatically" and also "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

I know how to access the Vonage configuration page, which is by going to 192.168.15.1 on my web browser. But that's not what I need.

I went to a small office that has a DSL connection. It seems to be going through a router of some kind because they all have IP adresses with the first 3 octets being the same number. (e.g. 69.147.292.xxx). I hooked up a wireless router to one of the network connections and attached 3 pc's to it. Of course they now all have addresses like 192.168.2.xxx. Router is a Belkin 802.11g router.

Can I still share resources from the 192.168.2.xxx machines with the ones that have the 69.147.292.xxx addresses?

Thanks.

Hi All,
I have an issue with my wireless router that I needed some help with. To start off let me give you a bit of background...

I use a macbook at home and a pc at work and I wanted to be able to access my macbook remotely. I used RealVNC for this and had to open up port number 5900 on my router, and the local IP used was 192.168.1.4 - which is the local IP address of my macbook. I am now able to access my macbook from my pc at work.

Unfortunately as a side effect, no other device is able to access my home wifi connection anymore, not another pc, my nokia e71 or my friend's iphone. Is this a by product of the port forwarding? or is it unrelated and should I try and figure out if something else is the matter?

My macbook seems to be able to use the wifi just fine.

Would appreciate any insight on this matter.

Thanks a lot
 

A:Has Port Forwarding Disabled Other Devices From Accessing My Router?

I think the other devices are not able to connect not because of the port forwarding, but because you went ahead and gave a static IP address to your macbook, The 192.168.1.4, and all the other devices for some reason also want this IP addresss. Try assigning your macbook to a different IP.

I have alltel wireless internet that uses ICS through that. The lan card on my pci bus is connected to a LAN port on the same router. When i am not using ics i disable the lan on my motherboard and vice versa. I am using the second LAN on my pci bus that is connected to one of the LAN ports on my router so my computer can use MCE and DIRECTV2PC. I have another line connected to a LAN port on the same router going to a switch which is connected to my 360 and my directv receiver.

Hello,
what you need are the drivers for your PC.
If it is from Dell,HP or similar go on their support page and get drivers for your PC there.
If this is self built PC, than you will need to know what are the components inside,especially network card and than download the drivers.
I suppose you will download drivers on your laptop.Put the drivers on an USB key or CD and then install them on your desktop. usually once the chipset and network card is installed, the rest you can download directly on this PC. Do not forget to install anti-virus software and do the updates.

Two days ago, somehow Windows lost the ability to contact any DNS server in the middle of my browsing for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and indeed a small browser called Midori. Strangely, Steam still had the ability to connect and browse, but after I rebooted in an attempt to fix the problem, steam could no longer connect.

Chrome Error: DNS PROBE FINISHED NO INTERNET FOUND

IE Error: This page cannot be displayed.

Firefox Error: Firefox cannot find this page.

No other device in my house has this problem. All other computers can connect just fine.

Things I have tried

Rebooting.
Cycling the power on the modem/router.
Using a direct ethernet cable rather than the laptop's antenna.
manually assigning a DNS server with control panel.
Reinstalling the network driver
flushing the DNS cache
Using system restore to go back DAYS before this problem ever emerged.

All yielded no change. I would really, really rather not have to reinstall windows 8 and lose all my information. I don't have the resources currently to back everything up.

I have Telewest Cable Broadband working with a Linksys wireless G (wrt54g) router. It works a treat and i have the "improved" antennae from Linksys to boost the signal a bit as well.

I recently signed up with Vonage for a VoIP provider and the router they provide is wired (the Linksys rt41p2 router) and im trying to get this connected to my wireless network with a seperate Gateway or wireless hub. Im pretty sure this will work if i put the access point in infrasturcture mode (im thinking the linksys WAP54G access point) and conenct the VoIP router to the Access point (with DHCP disabled so its technically a switch) and then it can pick up the signal from the router over a wireless network.

The router seems to support this as it has a VoIP over wireless option in the setup of the latest BIOS flash.

What i need to know is if anyone here has a setup like this and any problems they have with this type of setup! Any help wopuld be much appreciated.

Hi all,

I am using a Netgear Cable/DSL Web Safe Router Gateway RP614v2 with a Motorola Cable Modem SB4200 Surfboard Cable Modem for my Internet connection to OptusNet broadband. They works fine with my Desktop and notebook.

As I want to go for wireless with my notebook, so I buy the Netgear Wireless Router BGR614v5. However, I find the the new wireless cannot talk to the Motorola Cable Modem. Even I directly connect the Cable Modem with my notebook, the Internet connection is not through. It seems that the Cable Modem only allow the old wired router to go through it.

Is it any setting stored in cable modelm to allow the old router only to go thru, not other router or eveny my notebook. I heard something about MAC address. I check the settings in my current wired router, the option choosen for MAC address is "Default MAC". Does it cause the problem?

What should I do to remove the limitation to allow my notebook and my new wireless router to connect to the cable modem?

I want to add my Linksys WAP54G Wireless Router (<http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=35&prid=575>) onto the network so that I can connect wirelessly too.

Can anyone help me out with the appropriate settings for the Linksys and/or the TP-IPR8 so that I can accomplish my goal??? They don't seem to want to cooperate for me!

A:UStec TP-IPR8 Router and Linksys 54G Wireless Router

First Step: Plug a computer to the Wireless Router, change the IP address of the wireless router so that it's in the same subnet as the main Router (the one that is connected to the Internet Modem); give it an IP that doesnít conflict with the main router's base IP address, or the DHCP server range. This will ensure that you can reach the admin server of the old router from any LAN machine, and that the Wireless Clients IPs are assigned correctly.

For Example:

- Main Routerís base address is 192.168.1.1, with a DHCP server range of 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.200

- Set the Cable/DSL Router to (the one you're using as an Access Point) base address to any IP address between 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.99

Second Step: Switch Off the DHCP on the Wireless Cable/DSL Router.

Plug the Wireless Router to the main Router. Regular Port to Regular Port, using crossover cable (or straight patch if one port is an Uplink or auto-sensing).

The WAN input of the Wireless Router should stay open, do not connect any thing to the WAN input of the secondary router.

I recently added a Linksys WRT310N Wireless-N router to my home network and can no longer access my web/ftp server from outside the local network. Previously, I was running a ZyXEL EQ-66HW ADSL gateway in router mode as a hub and wireless AP. With the ZyXEL running by itself, I had no problem running XAMPP (Apache/FileZilla/etc..) on my internal server with a dynamic/DHCP ip address from my ISP. Problem was that I needed wireless-n and the ZyXEL only went up to G. So I put the ZyXEL in bridge-mode, turned off its wireless and DHCP and connected the Linksys as a router/firewall/AP. So far, no problem - bridge works, Linksys gets the external DHCP address, internal network gets its subnet from the router and the wireless is up. No problems routing internal to external - everything external to internal times-out. I can ping my ISP/DHCP external address, however. So it seems to me it a firewall problem. I tried forwarding my main ports 80/20-21 and opening the same on my COMODO personal firewall. No luck. I turned on DMZ to my server with COMODO still on, nothing. Disabled software firewall and tried both regular forwarding and DMZ. Still nothing. Help? I had the same problem before with the Linksys when it was using a cable-modem. Also, I was using AVG firewall before when it worked - I have newly switched to the COMODO.

After a series of computer and network failures, mostly due to electrical storms and electrical contractors, I decided to upgrade my old Netgear router to a new Netgear Wireless-N router.

I have used Network Magic to manage my networked computers and when I decided to upgrade NM, the new version didn't support my old router. So, it seemed like an all over upgrade/update was in order.

What should have been a simple process-- turn everything off, disconnect the old router, replace it with the new router, and go through the set up process (cable modem on, then router on, etc.) has turned into a mystery.

I used the Netgear startup wizard, followed step by step (more than once) and each time I got to the last part of the process, it stalled saying "No Router Found."
It was only after several unsuccessful attempts, that I decided to open my control panel and check things out. Network Connections showed my status as "connected," so I opened my browser and found that I am able to connect to the internet.

What I have not been able to do is to set up my network, network security, etc. I tried to initiate Network Magic for set up, with the same results-- "no router found."

I was looking at getting a wireless router (either a D-Link 615 or a Netgear Rangemax WNR1000) and I'm not exactly sure how to set it up. I have a BEC Technologies 7402 TM (NOT GTM) adsl wired modem/router that my telephone company gave me when I switched to DSL. There are 4 LAN ports on the back of the modem/router, a line port that my telephone cable is connected to, and a console port that I don't use. 2 of the LAN ports are being used. One is connected to my cable box, the other has an ethernet cord that runs halfway around my house, through a wall and into a wall jack that my desktop computer is connected to. I only want to use the wireless router to connect to my Wii and one laptop, I would like to keep my desktop connection wired. I had previously tried to connect to xbox live by connecting my xbox to one of the LAN ports but I could never get it to work, so now I just switch the ethernet cords between my xbox and computer in the wall jack whenever I want to use one or the other. Will I be able to connect a wireless router to one of the LAN ports and receive a signal or will I have to connect the wireless router to the wall jack that my desktop is hooked to, and run the connection through the router? I've never setup a wireless network before so I'm a little new to this subject.

My laptop is running XP

My webcam is Logitech Pro and I broadcast using UBroadcast on port 8080

OK, in the old days I would port forward from the D-Link IP 10.1.1.2 to port 8080

Now, I went to portforward.com and followed their instructions for the Netgear and portforwarded IP 192.168.1.136 to port 8080

Sooooooo, what do I portforward the D-link to now????

See if you can see out my window on my webcam. In WMP, File, Open URL, and put in

Thanks in advance.

PS I don't think I am broadcasting...

I have a sagem 3304 wifi modem router provided by the telecoms company. it has a limited wifi range and in my experience of wifi it also has frequent dropouts/connection problems. we connect the desktop pc to it by ethernet and that's just fine.

we also were given (by a 3rd party) a belkin n1 wireless router (the model without modem) and would like to try it out to be the wifi router. The idea is to connect it by ethernet to the sagem and place it in a more central part of the property. I reckon about 15m of ethernet cable. we would disable the wifi on the sagem. had we been given the belkin model with internal modem, this would not be an issue and we would not need to use the sagem at all - that is not meant to sound ungrateful!!

can anyone see any pitfalls with this? or if it is do-able, any recommendations re:configs?

I have found another post loosely related to using 2 routers however it doesn't really address this specifically:

A:Connecting a wireless router to a modem router via ethernet?

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-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).

First I would like to say hello to everyone in the community as this is my first post. I would like to set up Linksys wireless router(wrt160n) with a Dlink wired router(DLR-604),The wireless would be the host router and I would like to isolate the wired router from that network,to protect my main computer's(2computer's plus network printer) from from my children s and friend's machines I connect to the wireless or wired ports on the Linksys.Thanks in advance, any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated .Cheers
 

A:Solved: Connect wireless router and wired router

This should be pretty easy. Just connect the D-Link router's WAN port to one of the Linksys router's LAN ports. The computers connected to the D-Link router will be isolated from the Linksys connected computers by the D-Link router's NAT firewall.

Hi I have tried many resolutions and nothing. It all worked before with 2 cheap routers off of my cable modem (High Speed Cogeco Cable) but I couldn't password protect the routers because my wireless for laptop wouldn't log on at all?

1) So now I have a new rca cable modem (from provider) to a linksys ezx55w 5 port switch (not in the uplink port I assume since I have tried with and without from modem).

2) From switch to D-Link Di-524 (for wireless in yard and garage if I choose to bring laptop out here or around) to two computers in garage

3) From switch to 100+ foot of cat cable to house to an X-Micro also wireless for where laptop mainly stays) (cheap router but works great)


So all should be fine as I have researched and had replies to do it this way for ease of not conflicting hooking 2 routers together.

NOT SO...lol.

After reading I do not see if there is something in the settings I should do to each router still...since they (to me) are on seperate lines from the 5 port switch? Or maybe is this a cause from my provider not allowing me to use 2 seperate lines as I see it as well?

ANY HELP is greatly appreciated please been working on this for over 3 weeks now and read so much that all the scenerios don't make sense anymore.
Take Care,

I'm trying to hook up a wireless connection in my home. When the DSL is connected regularly through the modem it works just fine. But when I hook up the Netgar router and try to set it up so that my son's laptop can have wireless, the internet will not connect. I get an error that gives me the option to redial but that never works either.

We tried a Belkin router (It just stopped working recently), then tried linksys, and now Netgar.

Thanks in advance.

My small home network is connected to a Z100G Zone Alarm router via wires. This router has WiFi but I do not use it as it is not wireless N capable. I would like to have wireless N to stream movies to a wireless N BluRay player. I would like to keep the Z100G because of the firewall function.

Can I just connect a new wireless N router to the Z100G? If so, would it then be best to connect all the network computers to the new router either via wired or wireless?

Thanks...

Hey all,

I'm trying to connect my wireless router to my wired router.

Ideally I want the following: internet--> A --> 3 PCs + B -->itouch+ps3 +laptops

A: Gnet External ADSL modem with 4-port switch bb0055 (note: this is a modem/wired router)
B: Trendnet Wireless router tew-639gr

All 3 PCs have internet, so i'm sure my wired router is working properly. Using an ethernet cable, I've connected a Lan port in my Wireless router to a Lan port in my Wired router. My itouch, ps3, and laptops can connect to my wireless but I'm not getting any internet. I've also been able to access my wireless settings and change a couple of things.

From what I've read online, In B, I need to turn off the LAN DHCP and change my LAN IP Address. I've tried a couple of things but it still isn't working. Also what should I set my WAN settings to in my wireless router?

Thanks,

I have tried to research this and am not finding the information I need to answer the above question so hope a networking expert can help.

I recently for the first time went over my monthly data cap for broadband and looking it to it a bit more it looks like a lot of the programs my kids are using are hogging the bandwidth. I don't really want to pay for more bandwidth (as I already pay way above average as I live in a small rural village) but I don't want to restrict too much what my kids are doing.

The solution to me seems to be to see if I can monitor and if possible control to some extent the data on each of the IP connected to the router if that is at all possible.

I have looked at my router settings and unfortunately they do not permit anything more than traffic monitoring and there are no custom firmwares to allows additional features of any use.

Is there any software that I could use to do this?

Can anybody help at all with any advice about whether this can be done?

A:Can i monitor and control multiple router connected devices data???

It is almost impossible to restrict the total usage of bandwidth. To my knowledge there are no setting for that in normal routers/gateways.

This is my first post and glad to be here among experts. I will list my issue, please tell me what information you need to be of assistance.

I have a net gear WNR2000vs with the latest firmfware to date. I have two wired devices connected: 1. my pc 2. xbox, and also one wireless device connected 1. my cell phone via wi fi.

Before I updated the firmware:
I would hard wire my 360 and pc to the router together. My 360 online play would work fine for about 10 minutes then my connection on my 360 and pc would drop. My network status would say 'resolving issue'.

After updated the firmware:
I now have my 360 and pc hard wired to the router together. These two seems to work fine together. When I try to connect a wireless device my connection drops. My pc resolves the issue and regains connection, but if I try to navigate a webpage or download anything from the wireless device then it starts the whole dropping connection thing again.

I'm not sure what information you guys would like but here's some basics. Thanks!

Hello,
I have a Fort Knox Policy Router, but no type of manual. I have searched the web for help with it, but found nothing. I cannot figure out how to operate it... when I plug it up to my network, I get IP's from a DHCP server on it. It has 3 NICs and 1 Modem in it. When I opened it up, i saw an AGP slot so I added a Vid. Car hopeing to see something on the screen, however nothing shows up. I'm familar with Cisco routers, and using console ports or telnet lines, but since I do not know what IP address this thing has, and it has no Console port, I have no idea what to do.
If anyone could either explain to me how to operate it, or point me to place that can I would greatly appreciated it.

Thanks,
outerlimit

I have 7 devices connected to my Netgear Router 600/3700v2 and the devices keep disappearing. I believe I have found the solution. Connect to your Netgear Router (you will see BASIC and ADVANCED options) and select the ADVANCED settings. Click the tab below ADVANCED SETTINGS and in the drop down menu select UPnP. You will see on the top of the screen ADVERTISEMENT TIME TO LIVE - this setting DEFAULTS TO "4" which is okay for "normal" home use (well, it didn't work for me). This setting is what controls your attached devices. If you keep losing them, try increasing the settings until they remain visible. I tried 5 first - no go. Then I tried 8 and I haven't lost the devices since. Hope this works for you!

I have 2 laptops, an ipad, and 2 smart phones using a dlink router. All devices connect to the router beautifully but will not access the Internet.
Both laptops will access the internet when hardwired to the modem via Ethernet cable.
Rebooted the modem, rest the router, still no connection.
Reset router and one laptop can access the Internet. The other one can't.
ipad and 2 smart phones will not access the Internet even after the reboot of both the modem and router.

It would seem that one laptop at a time can access the Internet through the router with a lot of rebooting and resetting of the router.

I spent a long while on the phone with my Internet Provider and they were no help.
Any suggestions sure would be appreciated.

This is a new problem as all devices have formerly worked great.

I have a home network with one computer cabled to a Netgear wireless router. Two other computers connected wireless, a laptop and a desktop. The desktop wireless connection is very flakey(drops out frequently). Question: can I replace the existing wireless router then move the move the current router to the desktop and connect via cable? This then creates a router to router wireless connection. Would I have problems with the default IP addresses of the routers trying to talk to each other?
