Q: Solved: A Router Default Configuration Address?

I had a couple of guests over and they were having problems getting online (actually they were on for a day but one laptop dropped) the problem was with the guest laptop itself. While troubleshooting we opened the router as an access point. It gave us a new address for configuration but did not get it all down. It is a Belkin Wireless G router and the previous config address was the new one was 192.168. then 2 0r 1 follwoed by three number sequence I believe starting with 2 (I tried 245 and 254). When I right click on my wireless connection icon and go to properties none of the address work some now start with 70. Is the a way to find the address and if not how do I reset my router?

It couldn't hurt, but if you have proper security measures in place, you shouldn't need to change the IP.

To summarise:

We tried some time ago getting David's XP notebook and his Win7 desktop to share the Internet connection that his desktop has via an ADSL modem and telephone line.

We wanted to get the two PCs to communicate with each other via the Wi-Fi adaptor card in the desktop and the built-in Wi-Fi adaptor in the notebook and then to share the Internet connection. We had no success.

Last weekend we tried to get David's Win7 laptop and Win7 desktop to share the Internet connection that his desktop has. No success again.

At the moment each computer lists the other one in its "My Computer" page.

The TrendNet Wi-Fi software in the desktop indicates that it has 100% signal strength from the laptop.

Both computers are set to "Home" type networks.

We can start a Home Group on either computer but cannot get the other one to join - an error is reported. We use the correct password when trying to join - the password displayed by the other computer when its Home Group is created.

We cannot get the ICS service to stay started. After attempting to start it an error is reported that says "ICS service started and then stopped".

We have checked all ICS's dependant services and they are all running.

I have 2 settings that we need to turn off in Access 2003 - Autocorrect (under Tools\Autocorrect) the very top selected line needs to be unchecked. Also the macro security level (under Tools\Macros\Security) needs to be set to Low.

While this is only a required configuration for about 5 machines per site it is something we want to ensure is setup on the image before we take the machine to the users.

The problem is both settings seem to be user specific so once we get it out to the users and setup on the domain we then have to reset these settings again AND they are the only ones able to use this program until the other users make the same changes on the machine logged on as themselves.

Is there ANY way to make these changes on these 2 settings apply globally to ANYONE who logs onto these 5 PC's?

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

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

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

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

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

hello guys,

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

all comment and help will be highly appreciated.



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

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

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

It's actually pretty easy, find the file in the current location, and cut and paste it to where you want it to be. Then open Outlook, it will ask for the location of the file since it can no longer find it, browse and select it.

Hello there!

I bought a 2G iPod Touch today and I am trying to connect it to my Belkin G Plus MIMO router as I have set up MAC security. I have my brother's computer, this laptop, my PS3 and my Nokia phone connected to the router no problem via their MAC addresses, but I am having an infuriating problem with my router and iPod touch.

My router just WON'T accept the MAC address for the iPod Touch.

I am 99% sure that I am entering the correct MAC address, but when I enter it into the box and click 'Add', it isn't there when it refreshes. I have been repeatedly adding the MAC address into the 'Allow' list for around half an hour and I am reaching the end of my tether.

I remember having to do some "unnatural" things to make that work, but I don't remember what they were or how to undo them. The IPCONFIG is shown below. How do I set the DHCP server address?
I have tried uninstalling the adapter and reinstalling with no success. Also tried changing cables. Can anyone help?

Using a Linksys WRT54G v3 router, with 3 pc's cabled in place with no problem ... until...

Installed an HPCLJ3600 network printer. Now only the first two pc's get an ip address.

We had originally used the Linksys Netset to automatically setup and configure the router to share the DSL connection in the office. It worked fine, although set up an odd subnet mask for us. We did have to manually input the DNS servers and the DSL username & password, but other than that, it did it all.

Below is the IPCONFIG/ALL of one of the connected pc's. On the other pc's, all is the same except for the ip address, whose last octect changes. Even the pc that doesn't connect to the internet - which is whichever is the last one turned on each morning - has all the same data and a unique final octet. It just doesn't get online. (Maybe I should run NetSet again now that there are 4 connections in use?)

- Need to establish a VPN connection later after the configuration.

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:

I have a security question concerning my Belkin router.

Earlier today I had been online with my laptop just before going out to walk. When I came back in I attempted to resume surfing and checking my e-mail only to find that I couldn't do either. I clicked on "Connect to" only to see that no networks were available, which was indeed strange. I noticed that the network button on my laptop somehow had been turned off so I slid it back to the "On" position. I noticed that the "Wireless" light on my router was not lit, so I reset the router, which didn't solve the problem -- at least not at first. After that I'm not sure what I did, but I was finally able to get it working again and get back online. The difference now is that the name of my network, apparently by default, has been changed from the original setup name to "OWNER-PC_Network." My concern at the moment is whether or not the automatic name change means that my network is no longer secure. Does the network now need to be reconfigured and renamed? A young family member set it up originally, and, if I recall correctly, it seems that the setup process was a bit involved. I hope I don't have to go through that process, although it may not be as difficult as I think.

Please let me know if I'm safe and secure with the default name. If so, I'll just leave it the way it is. Otherwise, of course, I'll have to change it.

Recently had this issue with my AT&T gateway system but only for the wireless piece. Turned out a wireless notebook had the same IP address as the router. The steps I took to fix with AT%T help and from TerryNet

Ipcongfig /all
The above displays IP address and router (gateway) address. They should not be same.

First thing to do is right-click this screen and choose select all. Then hit “enter”. This will copy the screen. Then paste it into Word and save so you don’t lose your router/gateway values.

Assuming computer is DHCP enabled and IP is automatically assigned
Control panel-Network connectionsright click on service-properties-verify automatically gets IP

If router and computer addresses are the same then change computer IP address.
Approach 1:
Ipconfig /release
Ipconfig /renew
The above can drive the computer to get a new one. If this works then sweet.

If this does not work (and for me it did not….) then go back to:
Control panel-etwork connectionsright click on service-properties
Click on radio button that says “use the……….”
Type in same numbers you had before except for last set: type in different last set of numbers for IP address (values 1-150 acceptable and make sure not the same as another computer). Type in the original values for gateway/router below it.

Choosing the “use the following…….” for IP address meant I had to enter new DNS values in th... Read more

A:Solved: Changed IP address on DD-WRT router, and am unable to connect.

There's some kind of problem with getting a dynamic connection. Could be that the router's Dhcp server is disabled, or a defective cable, or a problem with the computer. Try assigning a static IP to your ethernet connection (e.g.,, mask, and see if you can access the router.

Hey everyone.

I've ran into a problem that I can't quite figure out. My internet connection shows 'no internet access' even though my ISP shows the connection is coming into the house just fine. I usually use a router (NetGear-WNR3500U) but I right now I have the Ethernet connection plugged directly into my PC. I tried directly plugging into my laptop and the internet works just fine. So I know the problem resides in the PC.

Some troubleshooting things I have tried.
-Power cycled my modem, router and PC.
-Repinged my connection from my ISP(Comcast Xfinity)
-Used the reset option on the router and the modem
-I was walked through the internet options needed with the tech support from my ISP to make sure DHCP was enabled and every other setting was correct, and he cleared me that all settings were correct.
-Tried ipconfig commands to /renew and /release my IP
When I tried ipconfig /renew I get the error 'An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server'

That would be your ISPs' address, the router would probably be or so, in the properties, advanced button for the ipv4 of your adapter, make sure both settings are on auto, and add the correct router address in the gateway box.

On any LAN segment, all hosts (computers) must have the same subnet right?
How come a library has the LAN network configured as follow and still has internet connection?

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
As you can see the router IP Address and the computer IP Address are in different subnet.

A:router IP Address and computer IP Address are in different subnet still has internet

I don't believe that it matters which subnet the computer is in as long as it has an active connection and can reach the default gateway although it might have problems reaching other computers. If this is a home router and you are using the default settings then you shouldn't have to worry about subnets.

I am running Firefox 14 on Windows 7 64-bit. The default Firefox configuration is very "slim" and plain. I opened the "configuration" and added the menu bar, bookmarks toolbar, and icons for Cookie Killer, Download Helper, Downloads, etc. to the menu bar. It works fine for a day or two but then the next time I boot up the PC all of my custom configuration is gone and Firefox has annoyingly reset itself to the default "slim" configuration. It also opens in the upper left corner of the screen in a "deformed" shape.

Why is this happening? I have run Spybot Search and Destroy, Malwarebytes, and Norton AV, but they all turned up nothing. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi guys,

I am having a problem setting up a network. I am attached to a work network with intranet and from previous experience, I should be able to connect to any of the other computers using a program like VNC viewer. The problem is that while I can ping all the computers on my own modem, I cannot ping a computer using another modem. I can ping the default gateway of this other modem, but whenever I try this computer on that network, the connection times out. At first I thought it was due to the subnet mask, which was different under DHCP, but when I set both computers to the same subnet mask (on static ips). I still was unable to ping the other computer. Please Help.

I have three computers on a wireless network using a Draytek Vigor 2800g router. Two are connected on WPA and one, a tablet, on WEP (its internal wireless adapter is WEP compatible only) - so I am forced to a mixed network.

All PC are running Windows XP with SP2.

The WEP machine as started to connect using IP address - I had this happen on another machine, but was able to reconfgure the connection to remove it and get it connecting with a dhcp address. It just won't go away on this one. I've tried resetting the router, reconfiguring the connection, Network Magic - in fact it started to do it after I started using Network Magic (is there a relationship)...

ipconfig lists this 169...address as the Autoconfiguration IP Address...but I cannot figure out how to alter it...It should be allocating via DHCP. It does say DHCP and autoconfiguration enabled.

Any suggestions?

On my Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop I recently added a second screen (Acer 20" flat screen), hooked up with a DVI-D connection. The laptop (via the Intel GMA 950 video card) supports both clone and extended screen mode--I am using it exclusively in extended screen mode, i.e. just as if I had a desktop machine with two monitors attached. By default it sets my laptop screen on the left, external Acer on the right, with the Acer screen resolution set to match the laptop (the laptop is perhaps 10-20% smaller).

Using the standard Windows XP control panel applet ("Display") I went to settings and made two changes:
A) Dragged monitor 1 from the left of monitor 2 to the right of monitor 2.
B) Increased the resolution slider on monitor 2 to its maximum (1680x1050).
These changes took effect immediately, the spatial arrangement worked as expected, and everything is fine, even through a reboot.

The problem:
When I hibernate and then later resume from hibernation, the display settings revert to the default, undoing both the (A) and (B) changes I indicated above. In testing, I also tried Intel's native control panel (GMA driver) which allowed me to do make change (A) above, but the same problem resulted. And as I stated, the changes *do* persist through a reboot.. Any ideas on how to make the display configuration persist across hibernation?

Hello All,

This is just a heads-up regarding a vulnerability with Comodo and the antiexecutable (AE)\default-deny (DD) configuration.

Currently, some installers - standard, portable, archived self-extracting, etc - can by-pass the AE\DD configuration.

I have an active Bug Report reported on the Comodo forum that fully documents the various issues.;msg804007#msg804007

We'll have to wait and see what happens.

In the meantime, I suggest anyone using the Comodo AE\DD configuration to supplement it with VooDooShield, NoVirusThanks Exe Radar Pro or AppGuard.

VooDooShield has a freeware option with settings optimized for most users and NVT ERP betas are freeware as well. Both can be downloaded from the respective vendor threads at Wilders Security: .

If you have never used antiexecutable before, then VooDooShield free will probably be a good start. NVT ERP also has training mode and can be learned with just a bit of time and effort. AppGuard is paid and can require extensive configuration to get some apps to work correctly in "Lock-Down" mode.

VDS, NVT ERP and AG are super-light on system resources... I'm a huge fan of AE\DD and think everyone should use one.

Best Regards,

So yesterday automatic Windows update installed IE10, today I noticed that links in certain applications open in IE10 instead of my configured default browser, which every link from this or any other application used to open in before that update and the reboot that followed the update.
I checked the Default Programs section in the system control panel, expecting maybe Microsoft wanted to get themselves in any more trouble with the EU and changing the default to IE. This was not the case however, all the associations were still pointing to the configured default browser, I noticed however I could not uncheck the defaults already set.
So despite the obvious configuration being correct, links would still open in IE10 even after yet another reboot.
I went ahead and checked the registry associations, and found that http(s) protocol as well as htm(l) filetypes were associated with Internet Explorer with various EditFlags set (presumably to prevent changing them through the user interface, or to ignore the user interface settings).

Seriously Microsoft? Don't you have enough trouble yet?

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
However when he enters that it doesn't bring him to the router configuration, nor with,, 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:

Tips on setting up broadband connection, courtesy of Johnwill

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

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.

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.

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 disabling bonjour (I do not have and have never installed mcafee)
clearing the TCP/IP stack with netsh int ip reset
using ipconfig /release /flushdns /renew
system restoring to before the issue occurred
doing a clean install of windows (it saved my old files under windows.old - I assume this is still a clean install)

I am running windows 7 home premium 64, my network card is an Intel 82567LF-2 Gigabit, the router is a Thomson TG782T and I am using Bigpond ADSL2+.

It's been a couple of days and I'm well out of my depth. I didn't expect the issue to continue after a clean install. Any help would be really appreciated. Attached is the ipconfig I get. Attachment 288972

A:Router does not have a valid IP configuration

If you could attach your ipconfig please because I can't see it

This can help us determine possible causes

Hey guys i was wondering if you could help me Port forward and or Proxy my Wi-Fi router.... Im using a TP-LINK WR340G.. really need help.

A:Wi-Fi router proxy configuration help

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.

Pg 33 of the manual describes (1)

Pg 34 describes the setup for port forwarding

I am running a Netgear WGR614V5. I can connect fine to the internet and everything using the tourer but I cannot connect to the router configuration page. I did have a password setup on it, but I was connecting to it earlier today fine. For some reason the reset button does not seem to be working. When I ping none of the packets are received. When I put in ipconfig /all this is what comes up.

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

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, 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 or something other than 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
and router is , they conflict. Plus the router needs a different network like for you to be NAT'd

Hope this helps.

I am using an edimax 3G-6200n router with a 3G usb modem on the '3' network to connect to xbox live.

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

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

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

[FYI... I want to use PC1 (with 3G) for my internet connection because I want/need the VPN
connection I have installed on this PC. While there are a few (WLAN-)router out there that can

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 do I access the secondary router. Anytime I type in "", 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

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:

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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

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

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

I want to have the WNDR3700 and the DAP-1522 connected via wireless and using a laptop I want to be able to access the wired network from anywhere in the facility.

Can this be done and could you guys tell me step by step how to do it, I will definitely appreciate.

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