Multiple Router LAN Configuration

Q: Multiple Router LAN Configuration

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. Is this problem solvable utilizing my existing equipment and configuration?

I contacted Linksys about the above mentioned problem. Linksys told me that my problem can be solved through the use of static routing. They suggest that I configure static routing on my first router (Actiontec GT-701). Linksys suggested that I contact Actiontec for the specifics. I went to Actiontec's web-site and found out that they charge $29.99 per technical support request. I'm hoping to solve my problem without having to pay this fee. I know how to access the setup/configuration menus of both my routers. I can see the static routing area but I'm not sure how to configure static routing to solve this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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!

I am trying to configure my router so that it will play Asheron's Call. I went onto portforward.com and my router is Linksys WRT54Gv6. I go to the default IP address for configuration and when it asks for my password/username, none of the ones that were given (i.e. blank or admin) work in any combination. I was wondering if anyone would know how to find out this information for this model/version or if there is another way to port forward the ranges 9000-9001, 9004-9005, and 9012-9013? Thank you!

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 have the T530 with the NVIDIA Optimus option that should allow a triple display configuration (two external displays and the laptop LCD).  I have been able to get a working configuration with the laptop LCD and two external displays over DisplayPort through the docking station.  I have found that upon some boot cycles, I am either stuck with just the laptop LCD as the only display or I am able to turn on only one external display. Sometimes a reboot will change it, sometimes it will not. What's strange is that the NVIDIA control panel and the Windows display settings show all three LCDs, I am just not able to turn on one or both of the external displays (even if I turn off the laptop LCD). Has anyone found a solution to this problem? Thank you!

Hi, admarsha
 
There are updates available for both your BIOS and Optimus that may help this issue. The BIOS update can be found here and the Optimus update can be found here. Looking over the ReadMe for the Nvidia update, part of the update does help with issues connected to multiple displays through docking stations so it may help.

I have 2 networks that I need to remain completely separate.

Hi,
My system acts in a very unstable fashion as far as multiple displays settings. Whenever I connect my pc to my tv, the tv display becomes my primary display. This is a very unfortunate situation, since I'm required to manage my pc via remote control, with my mouse, which is located attached to my pc in one room, and a tv display, located in another room.
Since I managed to perform a comprehensive configuration using this cumbersome procedure, I would like to keep it ready for use if/when a need arises.
Does win7 keep its multiple displays configuration in its registry? If so, where? Is it anywhere else? I would like to keep a copy of the setting material and use it whenever a need arises.

I'm sure my brain has the answer to this from when I got my network cert 10 years ago but I just can't seem to figure this one out.

When I cross connect the switches the link lights go crazy and I can't connect to the internet or the servers.

------------------------------------------------
My configuration is the following

2 Poweredge 440sc's

48 port patch panel

3 Netgear 24 port 100/1000 switches (Then do NOT have a dedicated uplink port)

A Dlink 4 port 10/100/1000 router.
-----------------------------------------------

Its wired like this (I'll try to keep it simple without pictures)

Switch 1

Servers, Phone System and 4 ports from the Patch Panel
1 Connection to the Router

Switch 2

22 connections to the patch panel
1 Interconnect to Switch 1
1 Connection to the Router

22 connections to the patch panel
1 Interconnect to Switch 1
1 Connection to the Router
So in the configuration, technically each switch is interconnected twice, once through the interconnects going from 2 and 3 back to 1 and then each switch's connection to the router.

When I take the Interconnects out or the simultaneous connections to the router (one or the other), everything works fine.

Why is this happening? I would think more interconnections the better.

Secondary question:

Given it does't work, which way would work better, the interconnections to Switch 1 with 1 wire going to the router from Switch 1 or all interconnecting at the router (It is a re... Read more

A:Multiple Switch Configuration Question

The reason the way you have it wired doesn't work is because you created the text book switch loop. Apparently your switches and router does not support spanning tree. Spanning tree allows multiple meshed links between switches without creating loops by determining best pathing to the root switch and putting the other links in blocking mode.

Hi,

Been having problems with my router today, was working fine and then all of a sudden dropped out.With a notification that the Modem wasn't working. I plugged in my laptop via Ethernet to Modem and it worked as fine.

Contacted my ISP and they said it was the router just broke, therefore I purchased another Router today, to my disbelief, still the same problem,can connect via ethernet but not WLAN.

Devices will connect locally but not to the internet.

if so make and model

do a power cycle - see below

How to power cycle

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

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

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

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

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 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

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

Greetings,

I'm trying to set-up a relatively straightforward but complex network. I've got 3 machines, Win 2k3, Vista, and Mac OS X. I just purchased a Linksys RVS4000 gigabit router. I'd like to do the following:

1) Set-up my Win 2k3 machine as a web server. I was given a static ip address from my DSL ISP and I would like this ip to be used with this machine.

2) The rest of the machines I would like to assign DHCP too with the router.

How should I physically set-up my network to accomodate this? What router settings do I need to set?

If anyone can help me even further, how do I bind a static ip to a my godaddy.com account?

Thanks in advance,
Scott
 

A:1 Static, Multiple DHCP Computers Configuration Help

Security issues aside you need to go to the LAN settings and choose your DHCP range then statically assign an address to the server. The ISP IP assigned IP address is going to be needed on your WAN connection, with a pool of internal addresses NAT'ed to that address. Then you need to port forward incoming traffic on the WAN interface ( not on the LAN interface), on port 80, to the web server's static internal address, and set up an access rule to allow that traffic through the firewall. The setup should have the webserver's port as a DMZ (there is a wizard for it). I'm feeling lazy so pasted the link below.

My wireless linksys router is acting up on me again and i'm not sure how to handle this. I copied the error messages exactly as displayed. Sometimes the problem stops after i wait 30min or so but this is happening allot more frequently now.

I started getting these errors in this order

window failed to find domain name prpblems with DNS server
windows confirmed that ''primary DNS server'' is currently online, but is not responding to connection attempts at this time.

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

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

Policy provider: windows firewall firewall
filter name: query user

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

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

A:Linksys router configuration issues

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

a. laugh; or

b. cry.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I want to be able to access the internet from any of the computers simultaneously and I need to be able to print to any of the four printers from any of the computers.

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)

I've been trying to solve this problem for over 4 months now by myself so any help would be appreciated. I don't like asking without trying to solve and search for this by myself first, but I just can't do it

Setup:
- Desktop Computer (works fine when directly connected)
- Laptop Computer (works fine when directly connected)
- Cable Modem
- Wireless-G Router (Model CWR-854) - Firewall enabled - All wired connections - No wireless enabled

Problems:
1) BitTorrent won't work properly. “Checking for firewall...” just keeps going
2) It won't allow access to internet banking sites completely. Accesses main pages, but times out when trying to log in.
3) Google Videos and YouTube slower.

Notes:
When I disable the firewall on the the Wireless-G Router, everything works fine. It's just the settings on my router firewall which is messing things up.

Attempted Solutions:

For 1) Allowed port 6881 for inbound and outbound TCP access on router firewall - didn't work - tried disabling Automatic port mapping (UPnP) - didn't work

For 2) Allowed port 443 (SSL) for outbound TCP - still didn't work

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

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.

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

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

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section.

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

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

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

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

I was a bit of a loss and maybe it's because I have been out of the game for a long time but I came across a disturbing development. I call century link because my router was not connecting at the proper speed of 7 mbps. That problem was easily remedied over the phone but the lady said she could see several devices connected. This lost me a bit because I have a double router configuration. The Actiontech PK5000 i turned into nothing more that an internet modem. I disabled the DHCP and configured my Linksys E1200 for all the internal DHCP so there is only one cable going to the PK5000. I should technically speaking look like one user on there network with natural protection from the second router. I may be kidding myself or man I'm getting old but if someone can tell me how that works it would be fun to know and what would even be funner to know is how to stop it!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

Thanks!!!!

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

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

Can anyone help.

Hi Guys (and Gals?)

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

Other details:

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

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

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

A:Please advise on best router to add and configuration for house of heavy data users

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

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

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

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

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

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

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 rou... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

1) I no longer have a need for the wireless functionality of the 2 additional routers. Should they be replaced by switches?

2) If I keep the setup as is, how should the routers be configured, is there a good resource on the web to read about this?

3) "If someone has the time to answer this one I would be grateful." - If you were starting from scratch how would you configure this network, what hardware would you buy?

A:Multiple Router Setup

You can't see all the computers because routers break up broadcast domains. You need to either create separate subnets on each router and set up routing between them or make the WAP's into layer 2 bridges (if possible). If you do not require the wireless could you wire the other devices directly into it? If not hang a switch off of it.

1) Its for a double duplex house with multiple computers, approximately 8 or 9 connections. Some of the computers are Mac's and some are PC's. I had trouble getting all the computers to connect easily through a WEP 64 or 128bit encryption and found on another site it wasn't possible with so many many different wireless cards, so Ive kept it open since. Is this true?? Is there a way to password protect the connection without an encrypted key so all the wireless computers can connect inside the residence's but not to anyone else in the neighborhood?

info: The computers are for school term tenants so I don't want to have to reconfigure their computers every 6 months they change, just give them a password in with low security. Im not worried about hackers, Im worried about the bum next door using the open connection to download movies.

i have my computer hooked up to a router which also allows me to browse the web on my PSP and go online on my PS3.

until recently though ive moved my PS3 in preparation for an improved preparation, so its now placed inside a glass cabinet surrounded by 'very old' thick stone walls and glass panelled doors (while my router lay upstairs). im uncertain what might cause a loss of connection thats 'not' tech related but either way, it aint moving anywhere for a long time and im almost sure that the reason i cannot connect my PS3 to my router is because of its location.

so simply put i was wondering:
can i just go ahead, buy a second router and set it up close to my PS3 (theres a phone line just two feet away). i just need confirmation or an explanation

just a 'yes' or 'no' will do.... although an explanation couldnt hurt following a no.

Provided I would want to hook all 3(well, 2- I have 2 monitors and can only run 2 at a time at most) to the internet so I'm not using one at a time, would I need a switch or a router for this?

Switches cost less but I don't want to buy it and find it's not what I need.

A:getting multiple computers, do I need a switch or a router?

Hello Diosoth,

Most home use routers come with 4 available ports for connectivity, so as long as you have 4 or less devices to connect via hard line, you don't need a switch.

Also if you prefer to avoid using a switch you can purchase a WiFi router and use WiFi adapters on any piece of equipment beyond the 4 hard lined devices.

At the bare minimum you will still need to set up the router to be a DHCP server, and all devices to be DHCP.

Finally, you could have all 3 devices on the internet at the same time if you wanted to with only the 2 monitors by using a cheap KVM and attaching 2 of the devices to 1 Keyboard Video Mouse setup; or you could do all 3 devices to 1 monitor using a 4 port KVM.

Good Luck!

I have few computers behind the wireless router. All the computers have static private addresses 198.168.1.xxx. The issue is that when I try to access any computer e.g to use FTP. From outside since I can only use the main WAN IP address when I use FTP I can only connect to one computer basically the one running FTP service on port 21.

I can access the wireless router and if necessary can do the port assignments. My question is that if multiple computers are running FTP services behind the router how can I connect to each one of them. Please explain on any tips would be nice.
 

A:Access Multiple Computers behind Router

Example only ...

On the router forward port 21 to computer A, port 21;
forward port 22 to computer B, port 21;
forward port 23 to computer C, port 21.

When desiring to access computer B or C remotely specify ports 22 and 23, respectively.

I would like to network 3 computers using a D-Link 614+ router connected to my cable modem. I would like to be able to share files and printers between these 3 computers. I would also like to play online games with one of them. Here is the questionable part- I would like to host a game server (for a number of games) on one machine and connect to it with another.

Is this possible?

I am a networking newbie, please help. My current situation, as ugly as it is, is such: I have a cable modem feeding a hub which feeds both computer A and said router. The router feeds computer B and C. I have two IP addresses, one goes to computer A and one goes to B and C. If I can accomplish the aforementioned solution, I would eliminate the second IP.

Thank you in advance.
 

A:Networking multiple computers behind a router

Well, I'm not an expert but I think I can tell you some things.

If you have a typical Cable/DSL router than you put the Cable modem in the uplink, then the computers connected to the other slots. Depending on what OS you run you might have to do a few things before you can share files and printers. You dont really need a hub unless the router is very poor.

I am a newbie on games and game servers so I dont know what I can tell you about that part.
