Wireless router configuration for use with file server

Q: Wireless router configuration for use with file server

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).

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.

I've a funny feeling I'll have to telnet to the router to take care of some hidden options but I'm posting here first hoping some network guru will be able to say "Ah I ran into this problem back in 19dickity6... "

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

The wireless network works fine as far as a laptop accessing the network, BUT the router does not recognize the laserjet and does not assign it an ip address. The laser jet had an static address with its old configuration. How do I get the router's DHCP to recognize the laserjet and assigne it an IP address?

I'm in the process of setting up a small film studio who just moved. I just started with the studio after the move, so I don't know how everything was set up and my boss isn't very tech savvy.

Here's the issue:

She told me that she used a wireless router as a print server to connect a wired networkable laser printer to a main router, which is upstairs.

If the main router was on the same floor as the printer, I would obviously just move the printer over the the router, but since it's actually in my boss' office upstairs and we need the printer downstairs, I can't do that. The printer has been broken, so I haven't been able to play around with it recently, but before it broke, I plugged it in and couldn't figure it out.

Any ideas?

I have Comcast ISP and a Linksys WRT54GC wireless router. It has worked flawlessly until we lost power, now I cannot connect to the internet with it. The wireless network still exists and boadcast just local only. If I plug the modem directly into the laptop it works but it wil not work with the wireless router, I have also tried plugging into the router with an ethernet cable and still local only. I thought maybe the router was fried so I pulled out another router and I get the same thing.

Unfortunatly comcast will not help at all when it's a router issue. I was really hoping someone might figure this out I have tried looking up the DNS servers for comcast for my area and putting those into the wireless settings, I have power cycled the router and modem and have reset the modem as well.

Hello, I am in need of some assistance if someone could please help. I bought a new wireless router, its a Netgear N-300 and I went through all the processes it stated for connecting it and setting it up but it will not let me connect to my internet. It said "set up complete, internet active" or something along those lines when I set it up, then I disconnected the Ethernet cable from the router and connected via wireless and it says it is connected to the network but it is "local" only and that it is "unidentified." I am running Windows Vista on my laptop as well. I know the router is receiving the internet because I am plugged into it right now with a cable to use the internet but I do not understand why my laptop can not identify the network and connect to the internet because all it does is "local only" right now. I ran the repair in Networking and Sharing and it said "cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server." I did all the troubleshooting that the router gave me but no luck. I saw a forum on here with a person who seemed to have the same issue as me but apparently I failed trying to fix it. I am going to post the information under command prompt ipconfig/all like he did and maybe someone can make sense of it.

I have a Linksys wireless router connected to my cable moden. Everthing is working fine. Last night I connected a wired Linksys print server to my wireless router. Ran the software on my PC, set up was a breeze, it found the printer...no problem.

The problem, I cannot connect to the printer from either my desktop PC or my laptop. I guess the real problem is I don't know where to find the printer to connect to it. Just in case it makes a difference, the router is my network. I have my PC wired to the rounter and use the wireless feature for my laptop.

Hope this makes sense...thanks.

I have a laptop computer (wireless integrated, WinXP-Media) that I would like to use to print on one of two printers located remotely in my house.

I have the Linksys WRTG54 router configured to access the internet on my laptop. I have a WPA secured wireless network configured on the router (if that's the right terminology) which I can connect to successfully with the laptop to access the internet. I purchased a Netgear WGPS606 Wireless Printer Server.

My understanding is that this PS can be added to my wireless network and can be used by computers in said network without having to have the printer(s) connected to a dedicated computer or hardwired to the router. Am I totally off base? If I am, just tell me and no need to read further!

If I'm OK so far, here is the situation. I ran the Netgear setup and all was fine -- it sees both printers, printed a test page OK on each, etc., but then when all was said and done I realized I was still connected to the printserver with the ethernet cable. When I disconnect the ethernet cable I have no communication with the PS.

I tried adding the PS to the network using XP's utility and a USB drive but that didn't seem to do anything

Shouldn't I be able to communicate with the printer wirelessly via the router that communicates to the PS?

TIA!
 

A:Netgear Wireless Print Server with Linksys Router

Oops! Nevermind

I'm not sure what I did differently the second time around, but PERHAPS it is that I disabled my ZoneAlarm. Anyway, I just went back through the setup wizard with ZA disabled and now both printers are working great in full wireless mode. Rebooted (which re-enabled ZA) just to make sure everything stuck. It did.

FYI for anyone that is curious, neither my HP5510 all-in-one, nor my Brother HL-2040 were among the printers listed in the compatability table from Netgear. I had both printers already installed on the laptop using the manufacturers install discs previously. During the PS setup it recognized the printers "by name" right away, and then when asked to add the printers to the computer it saw them and the drivers installed no problem. Only the print function on the all-in-one works, but that's fine by me. If I'm using it to make photocopies or scanning images, I'm not doing that from another room anyway!!

So, rocky start, but since I bothered to register here, I thought I might as well share a little success!

Hi there,

I have query regarding a wireless router. My internet connection setup consists of an ADSL modem (D-link DSL-320T) connected via an Ethernet cable to a wireless router (D-link DIR-615). My network appliances in turn connect to the router wirelessly.

Originally, I had the modem connected to the DIR-615 wireless router (***model = H/W ver: B2; F/W ver: 2.21). However, when the router ceased to function, I replaced it with another DIR-615. Note, that the new model was: H/W ver: D4; F/W ver: 1.00 VG.

After this point, I have had a problem in accessing web pages stored on my web server (which connects to my router via a wireless bridge and also acts as an FTP server). When accessing these pages over the internet on a remote terminal, they are very slow to load – this is the case on all the web sites that I host and not just one.

Note that accessing files works at normal speed over the internet via FTP using an FTP client or simply connecting to the FTP server using a web browser.

Whilst my port forwarding settings on the new router are the same as they were on the old unit, I was wondering what the issue might be that is causing these problems? Are there any settings on the new router that can be altered to deal with this problem issue?

Any suggestions are welcome!
Kind regards
 

A:Problem Accessing Web Server via HTTP After Changing Wireless router

I should also add that I've just tried to connect by web/ FTP server directly to the router via an Ethernet cable.

After doing this, I attempted to access my web pages over the internet on a remote terminal. In this instance, the web pages appeared to load at the normal speed.

Therefore, it appears that the problem issue mentioned in the first post is concerning the wireless connection between the router and the wireless switch (which is what the web server is plugged into).

The model of wireless switch is: Netgear WGPS606.

I tried changing the PC's address to 192.168.0.52, and other 192.168.0.X addresses, but no matter what I do, I can't access the web utility. I also tried changing the PC's address back to the way the router automatically configured it (192.168.1.101), and changing the subnet from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.0.0, but that didn't work either.

hello,

the problem I have here is that I just got a new linksys router (wrt54gs v5) and I am now having problems transferring files between computers within my network and possibly through other networks (haven't tried that yet). I upgraded my modem and router (it was the 2wire modem/wireless router combo they have with sbc yahoo) to a speedstream 4100 and this linksys router. with the 2wire setup, I had no problems sending and receiving files within the network and outside my network. when I try it now with this new setup, aol gives me an error that says that there may be a problem with my firewall settings.

at the suggestion of the linksys technical support people I: 1) disabled my windows firewall, 2) changed my MTU to manual and changed the size from 1500 to 1400, and 3) tried to open port 5190 for aol in my router. none of this worked. linksys is passing this to aol and I can't find a technical support number for AOL IM. does anyone have any ideas please?!?!?!

thank you

So on my 5th or 6th call to linksys tech support, I was just about ready to return this router and stick with my old one since AIM file sharing worked fine on the old router. I tried switching to DMZ, tried opening up port 5190 which seems to be general port for AIM, and turned off the windows firewall.....nothing. with the popularity of AIM you'd think they would know right away what the problem was. and dealing with tech support guys from india named "chris" and "adam"......just give us your real name.....no one remembers that crap anyways!!!! anyways....I could go on about how much linksys tech support sucks, but here is the solution.....at least in my case.

change the MTU setting to manual to 1300. it is defaulted at 1500.....that's it. 1400 was tried and after a couple more phone calls we tried 1300. if it didn't work that time I was going to return the router and go to my old one or a different brand. hopefully this helps some people out with this same problem.

Hello Everyone,

I just wanna ask for some help regarding configuration of a vpn firewall router that is connected to a 4g modem/router combo.
I am new in setting up a vpn and not so much familiar with others things or what setup is necessary, kindly help the poor guy please???

This is what I need:
- I need to connect the VPN FIREWALL router and use its features at the same time connected to the internet ( the VPN FIREWALL will act as the security for the whole network and the 4G modem/router will be the one supplying the internet)
- Need to establish a VPN connection later after the configuration.
- The server and other lan pc's must be accessible outside the local network when connected to VPN (web server, local pc's shared folder and files, etc)

Here's some details that i hope might help:
- I am using a Quanta 1K5 4G LTE modem/router combo
- I am using a Dynamic public IP address,( but this is not a problem because i am using s DDNS)
- My VPN FIREWALL brand/model is Micronet SP881 B VPN FIREWALL router
- Right now i am already connected to the internet using the vpn firewall physical connection is:
4G modem/router-->hub-->VPN firewall router-->PC
my connection is 4G(LAN)-->VPN (WAN) set the connection type to Dynamic IP
-The remote connection and remote access (web server, ftp,RDP) is working fine on the 4G modem/router alone.

I attached some screenshots of the VPN firewall router
Looking forward to hear from you guys, Thanks in advance!

In File Explorer-Network I sometimes see a router that is not mine. It is the TL-WDR3600.
It shows no IP-address, and it is apparently not on my network (Sunshine1).
I sometimes see a cell phone that is not mine either.
I have MAC filtering in my wireless router, and that MAC-address is not included.

Any idea what is going on here?

A:Alien wireless router in File Explorer-Network

First off stop using MAC filtering. It does nothing. It is a false sense of security. As for the TP-Link router. You do not have a SamKnow's "Whitebox" on your network per chance? The TL-WDR3600 is the newer version of "Whitebox" that Sam Knows is using to monitor network connections.

I had my Linksys BEFW11S4 v.4 wireless broadband router installed and working fine on my old Win 98 system, with my cable modem connected to the router by cable and my
laptop connecting wirelessly. However, when I switched to my new Win XP system I can share my broadband on both but I can't access my files / printer on my XP machine from the laptop via wireless. Does Win XP support the BEFW11S4 v.4? I think I've tried every tweak imaginable, including disabling Win XP's built in firewall, and trying to set up my network as a "home gateway" or as a simple hub. I tried to update the BEFW11S4 v.4 firmware, but the download for the firmware at the Linkys website doesn't seem to be working (today, at least).

Anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks in advance

Hi,
I have two routers, the first one is not wireless and the second is wireless (Model No. TL-WR740N).
To the first one is connected the TV and the second router. To the the second router (the wireless one) is connected a PC (windows xp) through a UTP cable and 2 laptops (windows 7) via wi-fi. Internet works for all the computers and all of them are pingable. The problem is in file sharing. The first laptop can't access files from PC but it can access files from the second laptop. The second laptop can access files from PC but it can't from the first laptop (the icon of the first laptop is shown in "Network" but it gives an error when trying to access it). The first laptop can access the files from PC only if it's connected to the wireless router through UTP cable, otherwise it won't work.

Please help. I know that the problem is in the first laptop but i don't know where exactly. (i need to access wirelessly the PC files using the first laptop)

Thank you

Hello,

I've been trying to connect to my home wireless router for a while now. I have one main computer and a laptop. The main computer works fine on the internet. The laptop does too if its connected by an ethernet cord. However, it refuses to connect to the wireless, saying that there is limited or no connectivity. I tried the ipconfig release and renew, but that's when it said "unable to contact DHCP server." I copied and pasted what was in the command box after the ipconfig below.

Hi--

I'm trying to set up a home network where files/printer on my desktop can be shared over a wireless network. Here's how it's set up:

Desktop is connected to the internet via usb CDMA, which is my only internet connection. All laptops at home connect to the internet through the desktop's CDMA internet connection via a Linksys Wireless Router. there are no problems connecting to the internet, simply 'sharing' the CDMA modem's connection to the local area network.

CDMA modem-desktop-wireless router (via LAN)-laptops (wireless)

Now, I've set up file and printer sharing on the desktop, but since the router get an IP address from the desktop, at the same time giving IP addresses to the wirelessly connected laptops, I cannot 'see' the desktop computer from my laptop.

Now my question is: Is there a way to make all the computers visible to each other using this setup? the key is access to internet, which is only possible via usb (which is why I can't connect the router directly to the modem).

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated

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.

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.

The problem that has decided to show its ugly face is that another friend of mine is giving me his old droid. The cell phone not an actual android. At&t being the wonderful company that they are would like to charge me 25$ a month for 2g of internet access.

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 .
(cable modem is a thompson dhg574)

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 accidentally uninstalled the Security Accounts Manager Service through a batch file containing the sc delete samss command. Ever since then I had these problems with WZC.

Problems:
1) The wireless list (View wireless network) is not showing no matter how i refresh it with wireless zero configuration. The service is indeed started already on my xp.
2) All the old preferred network lists are gone too and even if i add new one it won't show.
3) Somehow it still auto connects to the wireless point which i have been using (with and without WPA) even when the preferred network list is not showing up.

I am able to connect to the internet with the Belkin wireless network utility. I assume windows cannot use the preferred network list (user names and passwords) because SamSs is missing. If anyone knows how to reinstall this service or solve this problem, I would appreciate the advice.

I have a trend micro antivirus and spyware remover and a slipstream web accelerator on a modem dial up on our Windows XP and I have problems with one of the software programs always changing the proxy server setting. According to our dial up ISP we are not suppose to have a proxy server checked on our internet connections tab. If we don't then we can't connect to the internet. They do not seem to know much about how the web accelerator they sold us works against the anti-virus programs. I have changed the settings on the firewall and exception list, disabled the windows firewall and thought I had it working then found out the new settings didn't allow the anti-virus to update. I had problems when I downloaded the web accelerator a year ago, got them corrected and had problems again when I updated the web accelerator. I seemed to get that working until I downloaded the new spyware program from trend micro. I searched the database of problems at trend micro and it when I do everything it tells me, something still goes in and changes the settings at each start up. Anyone else have problems of this nature. Is there a way that I can not allow the programs to change my settings once I seem to get them right?

My Windows version is 6.0 (Service Pack 1)Firstly, my Internet connection - via a wireless router - used to work perfectly. However, recently my computer has been experiencing disconnections at random intervals throughout each week. After ignoring this problem for some time, I tried to diagnose the problem and Windows came back with an message saying something like:"There is a problem with your Domain Name Server Configuration."So I used MalwareBytes, Avast! and SuperAntiSpyware to scan my computer for any malicious software. SuperAntiSpyware detected something called DNSChanger.exe, which I removed.However, the problem still remains. It seems that the damage done by DNSChanger.exe hasn't gone. Although my ISP's (TalkTalk) software called "Assist & Go" can fix the connection whenever my computer gets disconnected, it only does so temporarily - as the disconnection problem occurs again and again throughout the week.Is there anyway I can fix this for good? I'm not sure what kind of information I should provide you, so please let me know. Thank you.

A:Something wrong with my DNS Server Configuration

Hello,I am moving this from Vista to the Am I Infected forum for now.Now we will work on the DNS changer,,,,Next you must reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you don?t know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE.However, if there are other Zlob-infected machines using the same router, they will need to be cleared with the above steps before resetting the router. Otherwise, the malware will simply go back and change the router's DNS settings. You also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. Check out this site HERE for video tutorials on how to properly configure your router's encryption and security settings. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using.Once you have ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on the infected system, and reset the router to its default configuration you can reconnect to the internet, and router.Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when doneclick Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).After scan click Remove Selec...

I am trying to dedicate a selected ip adress to my pc (winxp)
but I have no idea which DNS-Server adress I have to enter.

My problem: Upon startup WinXP takes about 60 seconds to get an ip-adress from my netgear router. During that, the taskbar freezes, resulting in different programmes (e.g. Antivir) not to load properly to the taskbar.
Therefore I want to select the ip manually. I have reserved that ip-adress in the router's menu and have entered the ip + subnetmask + gateway(router), what is missing is the DNS-Server. - What to enter there?

And do I have to unselect the router as DHCP-server? If I do, what for do I have to reserve the ip-adress of the pc then in the router menu? Makes no sense to me.

And while I am writing, I have another problem with the router: It is too fast.
Router and DSL-Modem are on one power source, when I switch them on, the router tries to send the internet connection data (username+password) before it is ready ( seems like it need some time to start). Result: no internetconnection established. I have to reset the router manually after a minute or so, and then it gets a connection when it started again. Any idea how to solve that?
 

A:Preferred DNS-Server configuration

For your DNS problem - try using the opendns DNS servers, I've had no problems with them - set your TCP/IP properties to use the IP you want, then use the IP addresses opendns specify on their website: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

My computer wouldn't wake from sleep mode a few days ago so I hard rebooted it. When it booted I no longer had internet access.

My local area connection was listed as an unidentified network with no network access. I used the troubleshoot tool on the connection and it returned "the router does not have a valid IP configuration". I could not change the network from public to home/private.

I am able to connect to the internet using the same router and cable on this laptop. The wireless is also working fine.

I have tried:
disabling and enabling the network adaptor, DHCP and the local connection
updating the network card drivers
disabling ipv6 in local connection
Resetting the router to factory settings
I disabling bonjour (I do not have and have never installed mcafee)
clearing the TCP/IP stack with netsh int ip reset

whats the make and models of the routers

is there a modem involved ?
if so make and model

do a power cycle - see below

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

How to power cycle

&#8220;power cycle&#8221; 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&#8217;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.

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.

Here is the setup.

Thanks in advance

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 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.
&#8226; Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
&#8226; Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
&#8226; Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
&#8226; Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
&#8226; Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
&#8226; Boot the computer.

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

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.

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.

The router configuration panel differs from brand to brand. Linksys, for example, has a default of 192.168.1.1, with a blank username and 'admin' as the password. DLink routers use 192.168.0.1.

Port forwarding has these requirements

the machine to which the forward will point to must have a static IP address
once port(s) are so configured, NO OTHER system will be able to use those ports.
(1) can be done manually on the target system, or more easily in the router by using IP Address Reservation.

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

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.

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...

I really don't know what to do. I spent hours and hours yesterday night backing up my desktop computer to an external hard drive in order to do a system recovery because I was having problems with not being able to do a system restore and one of my friends who works for geek squad at best buy suggested I do this. Well after doing everything I restored from the backup on my external hard drive but then my internet connection was no longer working, but it was working perfectly fine before any of this.

What I mean to say is that when I go to the network and sharing center it would show that my computer is connected to my network but there's a lovely little red X between network and internet. At first I tried reconfiguring my router and that didn't work so I ended up pressing the little reset button on the back of my router and reconfiguring it and that solved it for the time. Well almost 12 hours later I've run into the same problem and I've tried running a diagnose and repair on it but I keep getting the same message of "There may be a problem with your Domain Name Server (DNS) configuration. Windows failed to find the well known host "www.microsoft.com" using DNS. The server may be down."

I've tried going into command prompt and using ipconfig/renew, that did nothing. I've tried resetting the LAN adapter, that did nothing. Also I tried to reset the IP address, and yes sports fans you guessed it, that did nothing as wel... Read more

Well I installed a clean copy of MS Windows Server 2003 about a week ago.

I install Active Directory and installed but did not configure the dns server.

Basically I need assistance configuring the following services:

DNS Server
DHCP Server
Remote Access - VPN Server
WINS Server - Optional

I also wanted to know how can I setup this DOMAIN to work with clients in a different part of the city of Long Beach.

I have the "server/domain controller setup in north long beach"
I have generated a few options I personally would like to have setup but do not know how?
I am currently using OpenDNS as a DNS server for the web filtering services they provide.
Their DNS Servers are:
Static DNS1 208.67.222.222
Static DNS2 208.67.220.220

Here are a few settings I recommed using:
The installation Type: New Installation
Installation Method: Cd-ROM
License Type: Per-Server

Full DNS Name: CLPAFSK12.ORG
Domain NetBIOS Name: CLPAFSK12
Network Type: DOMAIN

Domain Administrator Account:
Username: Administrator
Password: dcadmin1000

Domain Controllers:
Computername: CLPAFS-DC
Full DNS Suffix: clpafsk12.org

Database/Log Location: D:\CLPAFS.NTDS.FS
Shared System Volume Information: D:\CLPAFS.SYSVOL.FS

Components to install
DHCP Server
DNS Server
File Server
FTP Server
Print Server
Windows Media Services
WINS Server - Optional

Hello...

I have a requirement for remote connectivity, therefore I would like to set up a VPN on one of my servers. How would I allow access to only certain outside users that have a specific MAC address or IP number? Also, what ports would I need to open on my firewall to allow incoming/outgoing connections? Can I further increase security by implementing some sort of filtering? Basically, I want to do some testing before going live so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you...
