is there any way to create a wireless access point with my laptops wireless card? Could I do something like share the land line connection and then create a p2p network? Thanks
 

A:software access point...

Not sure what you are asking, but this may answer your questions.

Using computers' wireless adapters you can set up an ad-hoc (computer to computer) wireless network between 2 computers or among several. You can do file and printer sharing on the network. If one computer has internet access you can enable ICS on it to allow the other computer(s) internet access.

ok im really ready to kill something, here is the problem. im trying to get my sisters computer hooked up on my cable internet, i have a wireless router hooked up in my room, and im trying to put a wireless access point in her room. so i put the CD in the drive, it doesnt auto boot. i try to go to my computer and double click it, which would bring up the same screen an autoboot would, it shows up for a second and dissapears. if i go to explore the CD, i can double click setup and it does the same thing... i cant install the software!

what is the deal with this, its an Emachine i figured maybe all the crap on there was messing it up and it was a slow system cause its bogged down, so i totally formatted it and clean installed windows XP home and it does the same exact thing! i have no idea where to go from here

Just ran the upgrade advisory wiz, and it states that my onboard High Point raid controller card (HPT3xx) is not compatible with windows vista. So I wrote the the manufacturer and they replied with:

Hello,

We no longer develop for the individual HPT3x controllers.
You can try using the RR100 drivers (this card uses a similar controller), but we cannot guarantee it will work with your hardware.

Regards,

HighPoint Technologies, Inc.

Im wondering if I should try it with their drivers for the RR100 (States vista Beta), or if I should wait till vista supports it... The only problem I forsee is that since they "No longer develop for the individual HPT3x controllers", is that I will never be able to upgrade unless I get a PCI raid controller card that is supported. This brings up the other problem, I dont have any more available PCI slots. Between a vent fan, Audigy 2, network card, and usb card i have no room!

Should I try a clean install on the drive I have XP on and leave the XP installation there, that way I could test the drivers and see if they work, or will vista mess up my xp install (as I have heard from some other forum posters).

A:Vista And High Point Raid Controller

I'd try the RR100 drivers - IMO it's likely that, since it's not being developed by HighPoint, that Vista will never officially support it.

Since your concern is with Vista, I'd suggest experimenting with a Vista installation (backing up everything essential beforehand)

Let me start by saying I know some basic computer stuff, enough to get me in trouble but not enough to help myself out of a jam, here's how the story goes.

Ok my computer was not being able to connect to the internet. So I called my ISP and they told me to uninstall my Ethernet Gigabit Connector in device manager (why I dont know) so I did, and when I tried to reinstall it, it had a yellow exclamation point on it and so did the SCSI Raid Controller. I have since found a driver to fix the Ethernet part of it but the SCSI Raid controller is still with a yellow exclamation point and everytime I go to reinstall it it says it has encountered an error. I have tried rebooting, going to ASUS website to get a new driver and searching everywhere on the internet...all to no avail.

I go to the cmd prompt and I have no IP address, and when I type in ipconfig/renew I get nothing but timed out as well. This is a second computer I'm using to ask this question on which is connected and working fine once I bypassed the router and went straight to the modem with it. Any help is appreciated...thanks in advance.

This question may not be what you think it is. I am trying to fix an intermittent issue in my home environment. The issue is I am having to use wireless. Our Xfinity Cable/WAP modem sits on the top floor of our house. I am located in the basement. The wireless signal I get most of the time is very good, and by very good i mean at least 15+ mb/s on speedtest.com.

I am taking the Cisco Network Academy classes and am familiar with network terminology and concepts. However, what I'm trying to do is take a router/WAP (using it downstairs where I'm located) and configure it to access our xfinity modem upstairs, so that I can plug in to it downstairs using a RJ-45. Is this possible?

Let me know what yall think. By the way the router/wap i would be using is a netgear model unknown at this moment but could easily find out.

Thanks,

A:Can you access a Cable moden via Wireless Access Point

As long as the two devices are on the same subnet (as they should be in normal circumstances) then it should work.

You may need to designate your wireless machine, in the router, as having access privileges.

You would need to set up port forwarding on your networking hardware from a specific port number on your public IP address to a specific port number on the Linux machine. Telnet typically uses port #23.

If your cable broadband service uses a dynamic IP address then you will need to subscribe to some dynamic DNS service so that people on the outside can connect to your network using its current public IP address.

EDIT: You need to check your ISP's usage policy to make sure they allow running any type of server on your account. If not permitted, they may block incoming connections on some port numbers.

Hi,
can anyone recommend some good point of sale software for use with bar code scanning equipment and possibly a touch screen cash register? We are a comic shop with a bespoke access powered CMS (basically information about our products, stock levels, pricing etc). We are looking to introduce a bar code scanner and relevant POS software to integrate with the existing CMS to facilitate purchasing of items, booking in new stock, automatic adjustment of stock levels up or down as appropriate etc. We might well consider adding a touch screen cash register as well, in fact we probably would. Can anyone recommend something which would be suitable? We only need to integrate one scanner and one cash register into the system. We do have the capability / programming skills to do any necessary tweaking of the POS software (assuming that's allowable) and / or the CMS database to allow importing of the bar code information from the scanner / cash register.

I've searched the net and there's obviously various stuff out there, but what I'd really prefer is a recommendation from someone as it's difficult to see which software is actually the best. We are based in the UK and would only sell in sterling in the actual shop.

kind regards,
Jonathan
 

A:Point of sale software - recommendations

Well, if you have the budget for it, you could try using a Mac OS X based POS system called "Lightspeed" by Xsilva (http://www.xsilva.com/) I'm not really sure if it would intergrate with your CMS.

Hi all,

it's my first time posting here. Also, I've been searching the forums since yesterday and couldn't find anything that seems similar. My problem is this.

yesterday morning, while watching an episode of a show on ninjavideo, I got a popup error message that said "LUALL.exe - Entry Point Not Found, the procedure entry point GdiFlush could not be located in the dynamic link library GDI32.dll". At first I ignored it and went back to watching my show, but after that was over I tried to open google earth to map out my morning run and got the same message there. I then tried a number of other programs and keep getting the same error. I tried to open my symantec anti-virus and got the same error. Also tried downloading and running a couple of scanners (registrybooster and SpyHunter) but I got the same error message when I tried to run the installers. The only thing that seems to be openable is explorer. I can't even get into the taskmanager.

Also, when I tried to check the properties on My Computer it gives me this set of error messages: rundll32.exe (the same entry point error as above, twice) then "RUNDLL, Error loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll The specified procedure could not be found."

Hello people. I've recently purchased an Edimax EW-7416APN Wireless 802.11n Access Point - Range extender to extend the wireless range in a hospital ward. The problem that I'm having at the minute is than any wireless device that is running on Windows 7 or Vista can connect to the Access Point but it's not giving them Internet access. However, it is providing Internet access to Wireless Devices on other operating systems. For example, we have successfully connected to the Internet using an iBook, iPhone and a laptop running Linux. The laptop that's running Linux is dual booting with Windows 7 and also successfully connects to other wireless routers in Windows 7, as did other laptops that were running Windows Vista. I have upgraded the firmware on the range extender but this has made no difference.

Has anyone else come across this problem? If so, how can I rectify it?

You are probably using "homegroup". Homegroup, on some systems, has connectivity issues. You van test that by creating a new network connection using "workgroup" instead. If it works you can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.
Let usw know if you need help doing that.

Hi guys,

Just ordered the following router:
TP-Link TL-WA901ND Advanced Wireless N Access Point: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

I have a garden shed 30 metres away so hopefully 802.11n should be able to reach. The aim is to use 802.11n so speed is better in my house and my shed.

However I heard that 802.11g dongles and computers limit the network speed if you connect them to a router running 802.11n. (Can you do this?)

So I might try running 802.11n on the new router (in the main house) and running an ethernet cable down from the new router to the shed where I will have my old Belkin (g) router running 802.11g (as a new access point, if you can do this- if not what are my options)

On Amazon, this is the cheapest wire I could find but its not external so will it get damaged quickly if I have it exposed (will burying it underground make a difference?):

High Quality 40M CAT5e RJ45 Ethernet Network Fast LAN: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

What is your advice? I heard that using G devices whilst the router is running N slows down the internet as it becomes a limiting factor. Sorry there are so many questions...

A:802.11n and a new access point.

Hello,

Firstly I would just try the TP-Link Wireless N and see if you have a problem with the signal. You can set the Access Point so that it will broadcast 802.11b/g/n. It shouldnt be a problem mixing the devices up really (at least not a noticable difference.)

I wouldnt waste the money on a Cat5e cable just yet until you see what the signal is like. If you do need another access point and do want to use a cable then you will have to get an external cable. Burying underground will make a massive difference, you will need external (armoured if possible) as a standard cat5e cable will degrade quicker over time.

Another option (rather than running a cable) would be to create a wireless bridge using another access point. I believe the WA901ND's can do this... But I would double check in the manual.

My friend has a coffee shop in which he has a router (not a wireless router) connected to the till, from that router he has a cable going to the office and connected to a switch there, where he has his laptop connected to the switch with a cable. he now wants wireless in his shop and he has a Linksys WAP54G access point. My question is, is it possible to get wireless connection like this? (router ==> Switch ==> access point).

I tried setting it up by connecting the access point to the same switch and i keep getting the following message: "The setup utility was unable to locate a wireless-G Access point on your network. Please make sure your wireless-G access point is powered on and cables are properly connected" (im sure its powered on and all cables are connected as it asked me!).

Many Thanks
 

A:What can I do with an access point

That's exactly how it can/should work. Connecting the WAP to the router would also work. Make sure the WAP is reset, I suspect since it's an WAP54G that it's old and previously used and possibly configured for something. Here's how to reset it: http://kb.linksys.com/Linksys/ukp.a...cid=1614d59ad48f4c9aae8622b513f98ba3_4123.xml

It also notes the default IP addresses for the units. If your network is currently using a different IP scheme other than 192.168.1.xxx then you may need to set one computer to a static address in the 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 and then try accessing the default address of 192.168.1.245; once logged into the unit you can change it's IP address to fit your network scheme.

You can also see if it broadcasts a wireless SSID and note that SSID. It's possible the unit isn't running Linksys firmware but rather open source firmware that the Linksys software would not be able to locate or configure the WAP.

Hello everybody, I hope you can help me, I'm trying to add a second router on my wireless network but I don't know how to do it, nobody follow up my problem about gaming issues before but after researching a little bit I'm trying to setup a second router very close to my Nintendo Wii to check if that solves my problem.

The questions (pardon me if they sound too dumb):

1-Can my second router be a different brand than the main one?
2-should be wired?
3-if yes, from where? one of the 4 ports from the main router to the internet port on the second router?
4-is the same cable from router to router? I mean I remember using a crossover cable to bridge two computers, I don't know how it works for routers.
5-Are range expanders same as access points?
6-I was accessing my router (old one) but don't know how to configure as an access point, maybe not all routers have this feature.

Get the router working properly, then when it is defintely working, reboot.
Then plug in the access point, and run the install disk, or the access unit install download software.
Then set your WEP or WPA and other parameters... easy as pie... The first one is always confusing. Do not dwell on it too much.

Hello forum!

The only reason I am writing this is because I couldn't find anything regarding this on Google, possibly my lack of knowing what to ask of it may be the issue.

So, I just moved to a new apartment, and my landlady was kind enough to share her Internet connection, while mine is waiting to get activated. The thing is that my mobile has less than 0 reception here. The company offered me a Femcotell device (it uses your internet connection to give you full 3G signal no matter where you are). The thing is, that for this to work, it needs to be hooked up to to the router or a network device.

So, the question is. Is there a possibility where I can hook it up to my PC's Ethernet port in some way? If I had a repeater, then I wouldn't be asking this question, I just want to know if a PC can act as a repeater in some way.

Edit: I also have an Wireless Router/WAP, that I could connect to the Ethernet port of the Windows PC. The thing is that even by trying several settings on routing etc on the router, I still cannot get it to relay the internet connection.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi

I have tried to set up a wireless access point using an old Netgear DG384G router as the access point. This is connected by wire to a Buffalo WBMR-G54 wireless router.
I have switched off DHCP and set a static IP of 198.168.11.99 on the netgear and it is using WPA-PSK security. Buffalo is on channel 6 and on WEP, Netgear channel 11

All was working fine, could connect on laptop, Ipad and iphone all working ok and then suddenly at about 6.00PM the connection became very slow (Last 2 Nights) Tried rebboting router, switched off security and no difference.

Speedtest results through the day gave averages of:
Ping 45ms
Download 6 Mbps
Upload 0.82 Mbps

after 6pm:

Ping 45ms
Download 0.2Mbps
Upload 0.82 Mbps

If i looked at the signal strength on Inssider it never change RSSI -39, and my main pc which is comnnected to buffalo by cable was functioning ok, also if i moved laptop, ipad or iphone they would connect to buffalo.

Tried speedtest again this morning at 6.15AM and speeds sre up again:

Ping 41ms
Download 10.5 Mbps
Upload 0.82 Mbps

Any guggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi

Yesterday I went to a computer shop and asked to purchase a router so that I could network my house. I have a desktop computer using a d-link adsl modem model no. 302G. I have a lap top computer that has wireless capability. I came home with a Linksys Wireless G access point. . The strength of the connections is excellent however I am unable to connect. After fiddling around I have discovered that I only seem to be able to use of the two ports at a time. Every time I plug in both the ethernet cable and the usb cable I am unable to connect to the internet Is there a difference between an access point and a router? I am unsure whether I need to replace the modem or the access point. Can you please advise me?

Yes, the AP does not have NAT capability, you probably want a router for the task at hand. I'd buy an ADSL modem/router and you can replace the modem and have the routing capability. It'll also insure no compatibility issues between the two units.

I've only ever done basic router setups and am completely clueless without a good piece of wizard software but would like to know if this Access Point is usable to allow laptops to wirelessly share my internet connection.

The problem I am having is that my work ip is 207.185.xxx.xxx. So when I try to set up my router as a access point it gives me the following error "the ip address you chose should be a non-routable ip." Is what I am trying to do even possible? If so how do I do it?
Thanks Justin

So I got a verizon mifi jetpack, and have a belkin share max n300 with external drives connected. I want to connect to my external drives on the belkin router (guess make it an access point?) I only own 1 laptop. I went into the belkin share max n300 settings. Turned off DHCP server on Belkin. Both MiFi and belkin have same SSID, security, and password. I selected in the belkin settings "Enable Access Point". IP Address of MiFi is 192.168.1.1, with a range of 192.168.1.10~200. I put into Belkin the IP address 192.168.1.2. Green light is lit on the Belkin. I cannot connect to the Belkin by typing 192.168.1.2, but I do have internet access ok through Mifi. How do I or can I access from laptop to my external drive connected to the Belkin AP? Apparently the mapping of the external drives connected to the Belkin have changed since turning it into an AP. I'm either missing something, or not understanding something. Please help. Thank you!
 

A:Help with Access Point

You can't do what you are trying to do with your setup. Even though the MiFi and the Belkin routers are set with the same SSID and same IP network, they are separate physical networks. If the MiFi was a normal wireless router, to complete the setup, you would connect the Belkin to it via an Ethernet cable on the LAN ports of both devices. But since the MiFi does not have a built in Ethernet port/switch, the MiFi just runs as a stand alone network.

I have this "DJ" CD Player on my laptop that..

(following taken from the manual)

"gives direct hardware control for audio CD's when the computer is shut down"
However, "when the computer is running then controll for all CD's is handed over to the operating system's software controller"

The sound is fine with the pc shut down and using DJ CD player, but when pc is on there is a loss of sound in CD's, mostly guitar solos.
Any ideas? the sound card is Avance AC97 audio.

Hello everyone. My first post here, thought I would..introduce myself with a question for you all.

I am looking for fan controlling software that is not Speedfan. Why? I am running Speedfan right now, and it is saying that a few of my fans are running at a lower RPM than others.

My first fan is running at 21 RPM, while my second one is running at 5424 RPM.

It doesn't sound right at all. I have checked the compatibility with Speedfan, and as it turns out, my motherboard is not supported by Speedfan, so I couldn't receive accurate results and/or adjust speeds/other options available.

Specs:
ASRock 880GHX/USB3 motherboard
AMD Phenom II x2 555 Processor, 3.20 GHz (upgrading to x6 when I can afford it)
6GB of DDR3 RAM (upgrading to 12GB within a few days)
MSI 560TI Twin Frozr graphics card

Note: I have done research and I just couldn't find an appropriate program to adjust fan speeds, that are compatible with my motherboard. And I have checked the BIOS for fan speed options, and I have two options: full, or off.

If you need any more information, please let me know.

I have set up several internet cafe's with open system access so customers can access the internet wirelessly. I have also set up multiple desktop stations in the cafe that are hard wired to the router. I am wondering if there is any way that patrons can access the system and can do any harm to the PC's or access any information that the PC's have stored on the HDD? I know that to be on the safe side, that it is not recommended that you try and access any personal information like bank accounts, credit accounts or any other type of information of this sort due to an intruder intercepting your information because it is an open system. If the security features on the PC's are good then should there be any problem? I just dont want any one to access any information that is stored on the main desktop HDD. Any help will work. Thank You!
 

A:Wireless Access Point

If the wireless is on the same network as the PC's and you have no software firewalls then yes there is a small chance this could be done. (Even less if you have file system sharing turned off.)

If the security features on the PC's are good then should there be any problem?

No problem at all as long as you have it secured enough.

A:BT Home Hub 3 as access point

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-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NA... Read more

Hey everyone,

My boss recently told me to find a way to bring wireless up to the 3rd floor of our building. The trouble is that the distributor he wants to get any necessary hardware through doesn't sell access point-only units (WAP54G). They have lots of available WRT54G's though.

I have heard that there is a way to turn the router and WAN functions "off" with a WRT54G and use it just as a switch and an access point. This would be ideal as we already have the router and modem 3 floors down.

Can anyone point me to a walk-through or a faq on how to config a WRT54G to access-point only?

Thanks!

Hi guys.

I have a Belkin 802.11g Wireless Network Access Point (F5D7130) which I'm wanting to setup so I can get wifi going for my ipod touch.

Now I have a Linksys BEFSR81 Etherfast cable/dsl router which is connected to my broadband modem. When I plug the Belkin AP in it works automatically just fine and I can connect to the wireless connection with my ipod touch.

However, it's been used before so when I factory reset it, it wiped any previous security off (including the old password I couldn't remember) and so the wireless connection has no WEP security on it.

I can set WEP up if I log into the Belkin AP's web interface but I can't find the IP to connect to it. There's a few IP's mentioned in the manual but none of them work. I'm also not even sure if I can log into the web interface using a computer which is connected via cable to the Linksys router (which the Belkin AP is connected to) or whether I'd have to log into it on my ipod using the wireless connection itself.

It just seems like there's no actual node to log into. I know there is but it's a wireless AP so to me it just seems to act like an extension of a cable. when I log into my linksys router and check the DHCP table I can see that the ipod is connected to the linksys router (through the Belkin AP) and it has it's own IP etc. However I can't see any mention of the AP itself anywhere or it's IP.

If anyone has any suggestions it would be ... Read more

Ok folks,I set up a wireless access point using a netgear wireless router plugged into a Linksys wired router. I set the wireless router with a static IP to 192.168.1.x within the wired range. Subnet, etc. is standard. When first connnecting with any laptop wirelessly everything is fine, good connection to the outside world for any activity. But here's the problem, once you reboot any laptop it will not connect wirelessly again. It will not connect wired either until I unplug the wireless router from the wired router then reboot the laptops.

DHCP is turned off on the Netgear wireless and is on with the Linksys wired. I assume the laptops aren't renewing an IP address. I tried setting the wireless to an IP outside the range but got the same result.

Ideas? Solution?

A:Access Point or Repeater

Hmm, I would use it as an AP. You need to configure this router as such:
- change LAN IP to one from your main router, say if main router is 192.168.0.1, change this one to 0.2
- disable DHCP
- configure the wireless with the same SSID/pass-phrase of main router (if it has wireless)
- connect a LAN port of main router to a LAN port of this one

Then connect your PC to another LAN port of the router with ethernet. If you have wireless devices they should auto-change to the best reception automatically. Windows and iPhone (to my knowledge) should auto-change, Android may need an app to accomplish this.

Here is the deal...

The hardware:
Trendnet TEW-631brp Wireless-N router and a Trendnet TEW-630apb Wireless-N access point

The goal...

I am simply trying to configure the hardware as a router with an access point acting as a range extender.

I have enabled WDS on both the router and the access point,
I have added the MAC addy of the router to the access point and the MAC addy of the access point to the router.

I have changed the IP of the access point to fit the scope alotted by the router.
I have set the IP of the access point as a static one in the router.
I have set the default gateway of the access point as the IP of the router.
The router is set as the DHCP server.
I did not use any MAC filtering.

The out of range machine that was the reason for the access point can connect to the access point as it sees its signal, but it cannot pull an IP from the router, all the other machines on the network (connected to the router wirelessly) pull an IP from the router without issue.
The far off machine can ping the access point but not the router.
It cannot browse of course without an IP.

I have actually gotten it to pull an IP a couple of times, but even still it will not browse the internet.

There does not seem to be a firewall issue. Windows firewall is turned off and the Norton firewall on the machine I have disabled.

Hello All,

I'm a college student who lives in a dorm room. Our campus has wireless internet, but it does not reach our building, therefore we must plug our computer into the wall... the old fashioned way. I want to buy a tablet pc so that I will be able to sit on my butt on my bed whilst doing homework, etc.

What I am curious of, would it be possible for me to get a wireless access point, plug IT into the wall, and then have my computer/my roommates computers run wirelessly through that?

Have a Comcast Business IP Gateway modem with four ports. One port have a CISCO Small Business RVS 4000 router connect to it, two port have Linksys E3000 router connect to it, port three have a D-link DIR-655 connect to it. The CISCO Small Business RVS 4000 work great. It has a Netgear switch connect to CISCO router with about 10 devices connects to the net gear switch. However Linksys E3000 router has a Hawking access point to it. The access point keep losing internet access, but networking is good. I have to keep unplug the power from the router the internet work well. Why do I have to keep power cycle the router so often? Dlink router dose the same thing with two access point connects to it. Is there a better way to connect access point so that it will not keep losing internet access?

I'm kind of new to the relm of wireless access points but a friend I have is connected through a wireless access point.

The access point is connected to a linksys wireless router which I can access through 192.168.1.1 but I'm not sure how to change the wireless password for the wireless access point.

Do I need to access this through an IP? Or is there some other way that I can change the wireless password? I have looked all in the routers control panel but it says nothing about changing the wireless password and I can only change the password to the router itself.

Can anyone help me please figure out how to change the wireless password.

My son is living in a dormitory, and he's connected to a campus LAN. He has an Ethernet jack connecting him. He would like to make it wireless. My question is: Do I have to set him up with a wireless router or wireless access. I'm aware that many routers also can be set up as just access points. (I was thinking of the cheapest WallyWorld model, a Belkin, which brand I have some experience with. I believe that one can be set up as an access point.) In other words, do I have to go one way or the other, and, if not, which should I choose? About once a year I work on my network, at which time I gain a lot of knowledge, which is then forgotten in about a month. Right now I'm in the forgetting period. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

The gist of my problem is that I've just set up a wireless access point, but my internet provider has some very specific terms about not using DHCP, and so I'm a bit confused about some of the settings on the Wi-fi set up for my computer.

The router is an Edimax EW-7228APn and my computer is a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.7.5

When I set up the wireless access point, I disabled the DHCP during the set-up process, so I thought I was set. But when I went into the wi-fi settings on my computer under TCP/IP it gave the options "DHCP" "BootP" or "Manually" for configuring the IP. I thought the safest bet to not violate my internet company's T&Cs was that I should do it manually with the IP address and subnet mask given to me in the wireless access point's manual. This worked fine until I tried to connect my iPhone to the wireless access point as well. My computer came up with an error message saying that another device had the same IP address, so I figured that's not an option. I'm not sure what BootP is, and if it is similar to DHCP as well. I know so little about this stuff that I'm not really sure where to begin. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Wireless Access Point

Hi liymmm, and welcome to TSG.

The Edimax EW-7228APn is a router without any kind of modem capability. Does your service provider give you a modem to which you are connecting the EW-7228APn? If so, are they providing the EW-7228APn or is it your own?

Can you provide a link to a page of the service providers terms of service that mention not using DHCP or copy and paste them into a post here?

If I install an Access Point in that room can it get the Internet signal from the wireless router downstairs so to access the Internet all i would need to do it plug in a cable to the access point from the PC?

I need some help getting the settings right to add an access point to my home network. (I probably have more network devices than I need but there are reasons for this as I will try to explain.)

Currently, I have a Secomm SHG1500 modem/router (provided free by my ISP, Vodafone, and branded as "Vodafone Station") which I use as , is connected to ADSL and is my DHCP server. I need to keep this device in my network because I can connect an HDD to it by USB and serve my music etc all over the network. I have to use this as the DHCP server because Vodafone have locked it down and you can't disable DHCP on it (trust me - this is correct). However, I have the wifi turned off on this, and only want to connect other routers/access points to it.

Connected by ethernet to the SHG1500 is a TP Link W8960N (which I bought before I signed up to Vodafone). This has DHCP turned off, and I use it as a wifi router. Physically, this sits right next to the Sercomm SHG1500. I've got all my wired stuff connected to it by ethernet (TV, Bluray, AV receiver) The reason why I use this for wifi instead of the SHG1500 is because if I use that, AirPlay doesn't work on my AV receiver but it does if use the W8960N, for no obvious reason (trust me - I spent literally hours with support staff from both my ISP and the receiver supplier, Pioneer, and no-one could tell me why this was.)

I have a router at one end of our house. There are 2 computers (1 Mavericks Mac and 1 Vista PC) set up on this same end. At the extreme other end (only 60') there is a Mac connected to the router with an Ethernet cable. I want to strengthen the wireless signal at the other end of the house since I often use a Linux Mint netbook or an iPad mini at that end and the signal is very weak.

My router is a cheap Linksys WRT54G. The things I have found so far, are to add an access point or repeater or to move my router more to the center of the house, which would entail going under the house and doing some duck-walking which is doable, but not desirable. Usually very sore the next few days. A better router is also an option, but not sure if that would change my signal strength.

I'm wondering which system would be the best option for what I want, or is there something I haven't come across yet?

Any help would be appreciated.

a repeater may be an option

quite a few are made , this will pick up the signal from the existing router and broadcast its own wireless signal and allows connection back to the original router

edimax are units i have used

another option is powerline - this connects at the router and also plugs into your mains - you can then plug the other powerline into a socket at the other end of the house - they also make units which will provide wireless

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me with the following problem;
I have a D-Link DIR-615, and a NetGear WGR614 v9.

What I am trying to do is have the D-Link router set as my main router, connected to the modem, and have my netgear act as a access point.
I have my netbook plugged into the neatgear with an ethernet port (into one of the 4ports not the WAN one), which I have used to set the SSID, WEP key, and channel to the same as my DLink. I then disabled the SPI firewall, and SPI ALG, and DHCP server. From there I activated the wireless repeater mode setting the repeater IP address to 192.168.0.2 (my dlink is 192.168.0.1, with it set to auto add computers to .100-199), and entered in the DLinks MAC address.
From here, it updates the netgear router, I go to the new IP adress i've set, but get nothing just page cannot be displayed, I have tried rebooting the netbook, and using my iPod to connect to it, but get nothing.

I hope you can help!
Thanks

I have just decided to go wireless and have the following problem:

I have a Belkin WAP (F5D6130), A Linksys Router/Switch (BEFSR41) wired, And a USB Wireless adaptor. Running on XP Home.

All the above parts are known to be in working order. The router works allowing me internet access on my pc etc, The wireless adaptor works allowing my laptop to browse wireless networks in the vicinity, The wireless access point works as i took it into work and could connect to it with all sorts of centrinos etc.

The problem is using the above together, i cannot get my laptop to even see the wireless access point (which is plugged into the router) let alone connect to it. Althogh my laptop will quite happily point me in the direction of about 6 other networks down my road.

DHCP is enabled on the router etc.

hey people,

ok, this is the thing.

I have wired broadband and i want wireless broadband.

This is my setup:

Netgear DG814 Modem/Router
Windows XP PC (wired directly into the router)
Windows XP Laptop (not currently connected to the net)

At the moment, the cable is running from downstairs to the PC upstairs.

So, I want an easy way to get both the PC and laptop on the net, wirelessly.

Would it be best to just get a Wireless Access Point, a Wireless PCMCIA card and a Wireless PCI card.....then:

1) Plug the Router into the phone jack/filter (downstairs)
2) Plug the Access Point into the Router
3) Then connect the PC and Laptop via the access point ??

If so, do you have any recommendations on which Access Point to go for?

Should I stick to Netgear stuff ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Help Please! I'll try to be detailed on this. I've worked on it and read on it for almost 7 hours and I'm stuck. I'm using a Win 7 Pro desktop that is hardwired and a Win 7 Home Premium laptop wireless. Both current on all updates.

My Comcast modem is hooked into a WRT160N that is hardwired to a WRT400N which is being used as an access point, and to the desktop PC. Both routers have the latest firmware. Both routers have the same SSID and password but use different channels. (2 & 6) Internet works perfect both wired and wireless through both routers.

The homegroup has been set up through the desktop but I've removed and added homegroups on both machines multiple times. My problem doesn't go away. The homegroup works when the laptop is either wired or wireless using the WRT160N. It will not work at all through the WRT400N. I can be in the room with the WRT160N on the homegroup, when I move to the other router so the wireless switches to the WRT400N, it drops the homegroup. The internet stays connected just fine. Once it drops the homegroup, it can't find it until I go back to the main router.

Both machines have IPv6 addresses, auto discovery is on.

Anyone have an idea? Thanks for the help!

I reset the router to default and started again. I set it up exactly like this link and my issues went away. How To Convert a Wireless Router into an Access Point - SmallNetBuilder

There are some subtle differences between the setup links I found posted and this one. Having spent way to much time trying to resolve myself, I know one issue with the other links. They wanted different SSIDs. When you're setting up an access point with different SSIDs it can cause some network hand off issues. Some PCs will not drop one SSID to pick up another unless the signal starts to fail. On smart phones, that is the case in spades. We messed with both an I-phone and Droid and neither liked two different SSIDs on the same network.With the SSID the same, the hand off between PCs and smart phones is fast and invisible.

I found lots of threads with the same issue, hope this helps some of you.

I am not sure whether this is the right place to ask: but here goes.

Here is my current configuration:

Main router : Linksys E4200.

Secondary router : Linksys EA2700.

ISP is Comcast with Blast so I am getting around 60Mb/s with Speedtest.net via Ethernet or WiFI when the Main computers , laptop and tablet are connected to the Primary router.

In order to get better signal strength at further away places, I configured the EA2700 as an Access point. I had to use the Bridge Mode in the EA2700 because that's the only option I was given with the new GUI .

I use 5 Ghz, 40mhz BW and N only band . I am the only one in the neighborhood using this Freq so there is no overlap per Inssider.

The problem is that when the laptop or the tablet is connected to the EA2700, I get only half the DL speed( 30mb/s) . I get the full speed when they are connected to the Primary Router. I use Inssider to monitor the connection.

I think the 'Bridgemode" in the Linksys EA2700 is a LAN-LAN mode so I should not be getting the reduced speed.
There don't seem to be any other way to configure the Router with the new GUI . Other modes available static IP and other connections which are not applicable. Linksys bridge mode automatically disables DHCP and other router functions and is the recommended way per the Manual with the new GUI.

Hey I have a situation where a client has a specialty device connected to their solar power system. The device has an Ethernet jack to connect into the network for viewing the device's web interface.
However, it cannot physically be connected with Cat5 because it's in the garage and has to stay connected to solar equipment.

I figure the best way to connect it to the network is wireless, but the device doesn't have wireless, their cable modem/router has wireless. So I thought a WAP is the way to go, but not sure if that is how they are supposed to work. A WAP has a single Ethernet jack but see I don't want to connect it to the router to provide wireless access, rather I want to connect the DEVICE to the Ethernet jack and communicate back to the router over wireless. Can a WAP be used this way?

In other words, it's NOT router to jack to wireless broadcast. Rather it's router to wireless to jack to the device so device can talk to network over wireless.

Another way to ask it is, a WAP comes with a single jack, can I use that jack for the device or must it directly connect to the router for DHCP?

If a WAP can't be used this way, how else can I connect a remote device on Ethernet in to the network?

My job, when I was at work, was in IT. I have a great deal of experience with networks but wasn't involved with wireless at that time. My only experience of wireless networks is at home.

I have a cable modem in the "office" on the 1st floor, which is where the cable (Virgin) network cable terminates. The modem/router has gigabit networking ports and my PCs and printer are connected by gigabit ethernet cable. I use homehub devices to extend the wired network to the ground floor where, until recently, the only device was my games console. This was plugged into the second homehub device. I used homehubs because the wireless signal on the ground floor was very poor.

I have recently upgraded my "smart phone" which has Wi-Fi and also bought a tablet for use in the lounge on the ground floor. Both devices get a good signal anywhere upstairs but a poor signal anywhere downstairs. I therefore needed to extend my wireless coverage to improve downstairs reception. I tried all the usual solutions but none were satisfactory. I then decided to add a second "wireless access point" in the lounge.

A:How to add a second wireless access point

I've just had a re-think of my setup process. I had originally given the two devices the same SSID and the reception downstairs was no better. This led me to assume that I was still connecting to the upstairs router. I then gave them different SSIDs and was able to connect to either as they were acting as two separate networks. At that point I downloaded some software that showed all the available networks and their strengths and what channels they were operating on. This allowed me to re-assign the channels to the two devices that did not interfere with each other or with my neighbours. I forgot to re-try using the same SSID again.

Just assigned them both the same SSID and now get "excellent" reception from all over the house.
