Connecting Two Ethernet Routers with Different ISP

Q: Connecting Two Ethernet Routers with Different ISP

Hi, i need a solution for this problem:

I have two networks. Each with different Broadband ISP connection(DSL). And I need them to interconnect with each other.

ISP A->Modem A->Router A->Switch A->Client PCs

ISP B->Modem B->Router B->Switch B->Client PCs

Router A is configured as a DHCP server

what router configuration should i choose for router B?

what IP addresses should i use for the entire network and where to set it?

If needed which divices should i connect my cables with to ensure the two networks would meet.

Im using DLink 4 port Ethernet Broadband Routers and DLink 24 port Switches.

Thank you in advance for those who can help.

I've set up two routers (one a primary router and the second as an access point to extend my wifi). They are currently in the same room connected together a by 1 metre cable and everything is working fine.
However, I need to move the second router upstairs and trying to replicate the connection between the two routers. The house is wired with network points and cables which all feed into a 24 Port Planet 10/100Mbps Ethernet Switch.
I've located the wall socket/ethernet port number (No. 6) from which the primary room is located and connected and similar the second router in the upstairs room (No. 2).
As its going into an ethernet switch, I thought that should automatic connect routers on the network. However, when I try to access the second router (via WIFI), its not connecting to the internet which is likely because the two routers are no longer connected.
I tested the two sockets (No. 6 and No. 2) with one of those cable testers and I did get a signal on both ends, so not sure what is going on. To my mind, the routers should be connected.
Can anyone help?

A:Connect 2 routers via Ethernet Switch

From your description it should work.
Go back to step one with two routers connected by the 1M cable and double check you get a wifi connection to the internet.
Plug Primary router into wall socket and secondary router into other end of cable, before the switch - check connection.
Recconect switch and plug secondary router to switch with 1M cable - check connection.
Reconnect switch and try secondary router in desired location - check connection.
A bit of hassle but will identify where the connection is failing.

Hi,

My cable internet connection is connected to a D-link DIR615 wireless router. The back of my house is a wifi blackspot so I've run a cable from the DIR615 to my Media Center PC at the back of the house. I have an old Netgear WGR614v9 wireless router and am hoping to connect the ethernet cable currently connected to the Media Center to the WGR614. I am hoping that it would then be possible to run further cables from the WGR614 to the Media Center, games consoles, NAS etc and also utilise the wireless signal from the WGR614 for my internet radio. Is this all technically possible? Would I connect the cable from the DIR615 to the yellow port (modem connection) on the WGR615 or one of the other 4 ports?

I've had a look on google but only managed to confuse myself with descriptions of access points, bridges, range extenders etc.

My level of technical ability is being able to enable/disable DHCP, set static IP addresses and generally fiddle with things.

Thanks a lot!
 

A:Help with connecting two routers

Hi dwl99.

This is perfectly possible
What you need to do is have the D-link DIR615 set up as a router, which you do already and then have the WGR614v9 set up as an access point. To do this turn of DHCP and NAT on your WGR614v9. You do this by accessing the router setup page.
Once done this the D-link router will be giving out IP's, firewall, translating private and public IP's on your network and the WGR614v9 will be there to just give out a signal. You dont plug the cable into the yellow port, it can go into any of the other four.
Hope that helps you out =)

A:connecting 2 routers

If you're talking wirelessly connecting them, you'll need a wireless bridge, not a standard router. If you can run a wire, try this configuration.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

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

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

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

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

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

Greetings,

As a newbie to the wonderful world of networking, I thought that I would get some advice before beginning this little adventure.

I have a Linksys WRT54G in an existing upstairs office, there is one computer connected to it. I have another home office downstairs on the other end of the house. When I first moved my office downstairs, I just ran a Cat 5e from downstairs to the existing WRT54G router upstairs.

That was fine then, this is now!

I now need to add two additional computers downstairs (hardwired) and utilize the wireless portion of my new router. (It is closer to the wireless devices that are using it and the new one is faster!). My room mate has provided a Netgear WNDR3300 for the downstairs office.

I would like to physically connect the Netgear to the Linksys with my existiong cat 5e cable and enable the Netgear to be used as a wireless access point.

1. Is this hard? (can a newbie do it and not kick his wife off the internet for a week while he figures it out?)

2. How EXACTLY would I do this?

Thank you in advance for any and all help...

Hi,
I have 2 routers a netgear TA612V which has my modem connected to it and my phone (am using VOIP) I then have a Linksys wireless 54 G router connected which allows me to access the web wirelessly. This was set up by a housemate who has since left..

Here is my problem. I need to get the IP address of the second router (Wireless 54G) Does anyone know how can I do this.
 

A:connecting two routers

inspect the connections carefully;


Code:
modem--(wan)TA612V (lan)----(xxx)Linksys-54-G(lan)---your systems
the wire FROM the TA612V to the Linksys: which port(xxx) is it connected too?
the Linksys WAN or one of the LAN ports?

If it's a LAN port, then the Linksys has no IP address, is not acting like a router,
but is a pass-thru connection to the TA612v which is providing the DHCP service
AND which is your gateway address.

you find the gateway address on any system:
run->cmd /k ipconfig /all​
It will be shown as the gateway

I have a Linksys wireless-G connected to my main computer and modem. We live in an extremely long house and I am attempting to connect a Belkin wireless-G router so that the signal is stronger on the other side of the house.

I have an ADSL Internet connection. Therefor I have a phone line going into the back of a Netgear ADSL modem with integrated router. This Netgear ADSL modem/router has 4 100 Ethernet ports on. One of these goes into my host computer. This host computer now has an Internet connection. On this host computer I have installed another network card. From this network card I have plugged in a CAT5-E RJ45 cable that goes into the back of the new D-Link router's ('DI-724GU' ) WAN port. Now the host computer is connected to two routers (via two network cards), one with an active working Internet connection (wan) and the other local (lan).
Because I bought this 'DI-724GU' for the soul purpose of having a high speed network, I want to connect another pc (or two) to the d-link. So after doing that I now have one host computer, with two network cards in, one going to a Netgear ADSL modem/router and the other to the 'DI-724GU'. The 'DI-724GU' has two pc's attached to it. They are visible on the network. But the computers attached to the 'DI-724GU' cannot see a WAN.

Maybe its something to do with the ip config?
Anything that would help me, would be great.

Usually you can piggy back routers together using the last port (4th port in a 4-port router or 8th port in an 8 port router).

Depends on which type of router you have, but usually piggy backing is doable.

A:Connecting two routers together

In theory you should be able to connect the #2 to the #1 by connecting the #1 in the LAN port into the #2 WAN port and set #2 WAN port to automatically obtain address.

Better yet, if you got a switch (which will be easier to do) use that instead of #2 router.

I do have another Netgear DG834G v.3 router and would like to know if I could connect this to my laptop and use it as a reciever to pick up the signal from the other router. I thought maybe there's some third-party firmware I could flash the router with.

So here is the issue.

They have also supplied a Linksys WRT54G router which they have disabled the wireless settings on and I can not get any password information to log in to view settings on that router.

The issue is that we have enough computers and an xbox which we would like to connect, that we need additional ports beyond the 4 given on the router. I have followed advice in the past from a Linksys website which I used to attempt to connect a second router (same model) which could enable a wireless broadcast as well as utilizing the additional 4 ports for hardwiring. The connection type they called it was cascading the routers. This has worked on and off for quite some time, however it seems to not be a permanent solution. The second router works for awhile after setting up the wireless and security settings and then just stops communicating the signals.

An example would be today: I reset the second router to factory settings, then went through the cascading instructions which mentioned to connect the router to a computer, log into the router's ip settings, change the ip of the router, then connect the first working router (which is connected to the cable modem) from one of the ports to the internet port on the second router, and restart my ...

Sounds like the company is concerned that wireless may not be sufficiently secure. Thus, if you value your parents having employment you will stick with ethernet or pay for your own internet service on which you can use wireless.

I can RDC the PC when it is not in the office, that part is set up correctly.
I have even tried to use no-ip updater, it gives me the IP address of the main modem.

The Main modem is a comcast modem at 98.208.xxx.xxx

Then it goes to a router Default gateway 10.1.xx.xx and assigns the router in the office 10.1.xx.xx which then assigns the PCs in the office 192.168.xx.xxx

I can not access the gateway, I can only access the router within the office which I have set the ports etc.

While connected to the network within the office I can connect Remote Desk Connection to the PC with no problems. On the same network it works fine.

I am trying to avoid using something like logmein or some other software I will have to load.
I have not tried VNC, I would prefer to use RDC.

Is there some syntax I can use to connect , example 98.208.xxx.xxx/10.1.xx.xx

Hello,

I am trying to set up a network in my house that has so far proven itself very complicated. I'll start with the basic set up. I have 3 linksys routers and am trying to link all three to the internet. I have a wireless router hooked up to an DSL connection for starters. From here an Ethernet cable runs up to the second floor in the house to another wireless linksys router. Also, the linksys router on the first floor is connected to another wired linksys router in another room. I know the internet works because I am able to connect straight from my computer to the modem. I can also view all three of the routers' settings on my computer when I am linked into the wired router. The wireless routers also send out a signal, but others cannot get on the internet and nor can I when I'm wired in. If someone could help me with this, that would be great, I have 20 guys complaining about not being able to get online.

Thanks,
Dave
 

A:Connecting 3 Linksys routers

If they are all routers, I believe they all act like DHCP servers as well. And if all of the Linksys routers still have the same default settings, they're all trying to hand out the same IP addresses. You need to turn DHCP off on all of them except for the one that is directly connected to the DSL modem. I would also assign static IP addresses to the other two routers, and exclude those IP addresses from the DHCP pool that the main router is handing out.

You also need to make sure the DSL modem is in bridged mode and set the main Linksys router that is connected to the DSL to probably PPOE and enter in your login and password there.

Hello!

Bear with me here... I am a rookie in the networking business but I read through many threads and helpful "manuals"; however I have a bit of a specific question which I could not find anywhere...

After setting up my old US Robotics USR5463 router as an access point (DHCP off, static IP, used WSD) to be able to extend the wireless network (main router D Link Dir 655) I came across a problem of connecting another device to the "access point". My question is: Is it possible to connect via cable a device to the router number two after convrting it to an access point?

I hope the question is understandable...
Any and all help appreciated,

Hi All,

I have 2 wireless routers (linksys & Netgear). The linksys is my main router I use, but I have a netgear that I have piggy backing on the linksys. I want to be able to see shared folders and be able to print when i'm on the netgear network. Would this be where I would need to create a static route? If so how can I do this?

Current configuration

linksys 192.168.1.1

I set up a D-link as a gateway to connect to the Internet, and a Linksys (BEFW11S4) as a second router connected to the D-Link. I configured the Linksys which is connected directly to a 2nd pc before plugging in the cable to connect to the D-Link. I have no problem with surfing the Internet via the 2nd pc or my labtop wirelessly. However I can no longer access the configuration web page. The D-link has a default IP address of 192.168.0.1 while the Linksys' is 192.168.1.1. I have disabled DNS on the Linksys. Could the IP address of the Linksys have been changed by the D-Link dynamically? How do I assign a static IP address to it? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Connecting 2 routers, 2nd router cannot be seen

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router 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.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

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!

3) set that routers DCHP to create 192.168.0.21->0.31

both routers will be on the same subnet (mask 255.255.255.0)
so all systems will be able to share

suggest Different SSIDs (xxx1 and xxx2) and Channels for each {one at low end, other at high end}

Hi I have a wireless router in the basement - router A. I am trying to connect another router - B to router A with a network cable. Router A has all the computers connected to it through a wire. Router 2 has 1 computer connected (wirelessly). The IP if router A is 192.168.1.1 when I make the IP of router B to 192.168.1.2 I do not get internet access on router B. I made an ip of 192.168.2.1 and was able to get the internet. But computers that connected to router B could not see printers or other computers on the network.

What are the settings that need to be done on the router B, to be able to connect to router A through a wire, and provide internet access to computers that connect to it wirelessly? Router A is a verizon Fios router.

Hi, First of all i dont know if this is illegal or not, but i dont see why it would be.

Ok, One of my best friends also happens to be my next door neighboor. Each of our houses have their own Router and ISP. Also each house has more than 1 computer.

We were wondering how to bridge the 2 networks together without having one of the PCs on all the time (eg: the XP bridging software).

I am not talking about ISP sharing or stuff like that... We just want the computers from House (A) to be able to connect to the computers in House (B), So the can share files, and maybe if posible a big LAN for video games.

I figure we need some kind of switch/hub thing, but i have no idea what and how to set it up.

Thanx.

I currently have a Netgear wired router which connects 2 computers to my DSL modem. I recently received a free wireless router which has a WAN port and 4 regular ports. Can I daisy-chain the 2 routers together so the wireless router acts more like a wireless access point than a router, i.e. disable the routing/firewall functions? Can I just plug in a regular Cat5 cable into the WAN port? What do I need to do if this is possible? Basically, I'd love to have wireless access on my network and this router was free after all, so I wanted to know if there was a way to use it.

Hi
I've got tw wireless routers, a D-Link DI-524 and a Netgear. I wanted to cascade the two routers. For this i kept the modem connectd the modem to the D-Link and connected a networkport of the D-Link to the WAN port of the Netgear.

Now, PCs connected to both routers can access the internet. Problem is, the PCs connected to the Netgear one can access the setup pages of both the routers, but the PCs connected to the D-Link one can only access the D-Link setup page. Pinging the other router doesn't get an answer. Why is this happening?

I searched the forum, but I'm kind of an idiot, so I'm not sure if something similar enough to this has already been answered, so my apologies if this is a duplicate thread.

What I'd like to do, to me, is pretty simple in theory:
There's a router for the house, and a router in my room. The router through the house currently provides internet access, but only for one device in my room (since I only have one Cat5 cable connector in my room) but I have several devices I'd like to have internet access. I'd like to connect my PC, PS3, and TV all to one router in my room, and connect that router (through the wall) to the router in the other room that provides internet for the entire house. Is that possible and how much of a hassle will it be?

The main router is a Linksys WRT54G and the secondary is (as of now) a Netgear RP614v2, but I may be purchasing a new one since I can't seem to find the power adapter (or a universal in 7.5v)

Here's a cheap image I drew of what I'd like to do, in case my explanation doesn't make sense.


Also, would it need to be a router if I'm not directly connecting the secondary router to the internet? Would a switch still carry an internet 'signal' (excuse my lack of proper terminology) or would the connection coming out of the wall and into the secondary router, since all it would do is carry internet, need to be plugged into the ethernet connection in a router?

Hello everyone,

I have a question that hopefully someone can answer. I have a Wireless Router (WRT54Gv2 - Secondary Router) and then I have a Wired Router (RP614v2 - Primary Router). I want to connect the wireless router upto the wired router so that the wireless connections will have internet access as well as being able to share files between each other. I have tried different things such as having a ethernet cable go from internet port on the Wireless to one port on the wired router, and no luck from what I could see, tho it did at on time assign it a IP Address. The Wired Router senses what port needs to be a Uplink port and automatically configures it, so It is not the case of making sure that I plugged it into a Uplink Port.

I also tried turning off the DHCP server on the wireless then I was unable to access anything including the wireless admin page. :-( I tried something with the static route page and may have came close because it asks about default gateway, ip address and so forth.... Any help is very much apperciated!

Thanks in advanced for your help!

You'll want to make sure all the routers are in the same subnet, and using the same ip address scheme (192.168.xx.xx), also give each router a static ip. (All done in each router's web interface)

Disable DHCP on all but 1 router, and connect the routers together via their LAN ports, not the WAN port.

I have tried to read up on the subject of connecting 2 routers and reconfiguring of IP address but am all confused. Help appreciated.

I have a broadband wired connection at home. The modem cum router is provided by the ISP. All I am tryig to do is try to set up a wireless connection so that I can take the laptop and work in the kitchen. I am in possession of a wireless router which according the the manufacturer is to be connected between the modem cum router and my computer. I believe my wireless router is called the secondary router, am I correct?

I have read up on Linksys instruction on how to "cascade" 2 routers and reconfiguring IP addresses here:

http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin...Xh0PWNhc2NhZGluZyByb3V0ZXI*&p_li=&p_topview=1

I have 2 questions:
1. Which of the 2 options provided by Linksys above should I follow"? The LAN-LAN or the Internet-LAN method. What is the difference, anyway?
2. From everywhere I read, it says that I am to reconfigure the IP address of the primary router (in my case, the ISP provided modem cum router). The problems lies in that my ISP will not give me access to change the IP (don't ask why!!). Can I get around this problem by changing the IP of my own wireless router (secondary router)?

Your help and patience appreicated. This is a very newby here who does not understand big technical terms very well. I can handle simple English for now! Thanks!
 

A:Connecting 2 routers & Changing IP address

Here's my recipe for connection of two routers, and no changes to the primary router's configuration are required.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router 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.

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).

Greetings,

I am having some problems with connecting my two routers together.

Currently this is how itís set up:
In one room I have two computers that are using a wired connection to my wireless router (Linksys WRT54G), in my living room I have a PS3, WII and two laptops that are connecting to my router wirelessly. Currently it works ok but the problem I am running into is the WII and PS3 are not getting a strong enough signal to stay connected.

What I would like to accomplish is:
In the room where my two computers are, I would like to use a wired router (linksys BEFSR41) to connect them to the internet. I would like to run an Ethernet cable from that router to the living room where I want to put my wireless router so it will be closer to the devices that use it wirelessly.

Is it possible to connect my wired router (BEFSR41) to my wireless router (WRT54G)? I am hoping that the wired one would act like a switch or hub but not really sure how to set it up.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

So I have several computers behinds a Linksys router. I would like to access each computer through the outside by adding another name as a network prefix. Let's say each computer would be designated as Mouse, Cat, and Dog.

Take SSH for example. I would want to SSH into one computer using port 22 by means of ssh [email protected] and the other by ssh [email protected]. I know I could just use different ports for ssh and have them be forwarded to the different computers with the router and achieve the same effect, but I was wondering how I would do it this other way.

How would this setup work? Does it use a DNS server?

I know I can access different machines on my school this way, but I was curious on how this is actually implemented and if I could do it on my home network. You don't have to give me specific details, just a general direction into what I can research.

Use only the LAN ports on the router, leave the WAN port open.

Both are wireless/wired router.


When I connect via R1, I can browse the internet and go out of the world.
When I connect via R2 I can browse the internet and go out of the world.


I have my printer connected to a print server with and IP 192.168.2.160
When I connect to R2, I am able to print to the printer.
When I am connected to R1, I am not able to print to the printer nor ping R2.


Similarly, if I am on R2, I can ping R1 IP address BUT if I am on R1, I CANNOT PING R2 IP address.

If I cannot use the printer for R1, that defeats my purpose of having another router, since it cannot communicate from one router to another router. It looks to me like a one way traffic.

R1 ----XXX ----> R3
R3 --------------> R1 ---------------->R3.

So, basically I want to know if I can take two wireless routers (each having its own internet) and connect them to each other wirelessly to link the networks of computers that are connected to each individual router for file sharing, etc.

I have two Verizon FiOS routers ( Model #: MI424WR ), each one individually goes to its own Verizon FiOS connection, meaning that in my house there are two separate Verizon FiOS subscriptions to two different people with their own little Verizon box thing hooked up attached to the side of the house. One is connected by a WAN Ethernet line, and the other one connects by a WAN COAX line, I don't really know the difference or why the Verizon guys that installed them each set it up that way, but it seems like perhaps useful information (and I'm just sort of curious). I'm also using Windows 7 64-bit.

I could connect the two routers with a wired connection if I have to, because they're not far from each other, but I would prefer to have them connect to each other with their wireless functions.

The second router is a netgear WGR614 v3 with 4 rj45 ports a WAN port and wireless WAP.
This Router has the DHCP disabled
Router address is 192.168.1.10

The two routers are connected via a standard ethernet cable.

On PC is connected to the WGR614 via the ethernet cable.
Its default gateway and dns are 192.168.1.10 (router its plugged into)

The PC can access the Internet... but can not ping other local devices on the other router....

How do I get the various PC's on the different routers to recognize each others.

For example:
PC 1 - ip address 192.168.1.101 is on the Linksys router and can access the internet.
PC 2 - ip address 192.168.1.103 is on the netgear router and can access the internet.
Neither PC can ping the other PC.
 

A:Connecting two routers. Not recognizing ports on each router

the easy way to do this will be to setup your machines with static ip adress and on the tcp/ip properties click on advanced on the Ip settings tab add the Ip adress of the machine you want to share files with and the subnet mask

Hi I would like some advice on how to connect 2 routers that both have an ADSL connection.
When attempting this the Belkin router will lose the ADSL connection after a random amount of time.

Setup :

Sky Broadband - Netgear DG834GT - 192.168.0.1
BT Broadband - Belkin Play Max - 192.168.0.100

The Sky network has 1 PC (192.168.0.105) and 3 Comtrend Powerline adapters (192.168.0.120/121/122) with 2 Sky boxes connected to it via Cat5, as well as a Cat5 cable into the Belkin router.
Wireless and DHCP are disabled on this router, connected devices use static IP's.

The BT network has 1 Xbox and 1 Netgear Stora (NAS) directly connected via Cat5, with 1 Xbox, 1 Wii, 3 laptops, 1 iPod, 1iPhone and 1 Android phone connected wirelessly.
Wireless and DHCP are active on this router, DHCP pool is 192.168.0.110-119.

As mentioned, in this configuration the Belkin will lose its internet connection after a random amount of time. I tested by removing the cat5 cable between the 2 routers and the Belkin stayed up for >2 days, when I reconnected it, the connection went down a couple of hours later.

I'm assuming having 2 routers connected both with active ADSL connections is causing some sort of conflict, is there anything I can do to resolve this ?

I work from home so having a properly working internet connection is VITAL. I was using one wireless N router for my entire house but the wireless range was horrid so I decided to dust off an old router and connect the two. I apparently did something wrong because my range hasn't increased and I keep having to reset both routers due to "limited connectivity" or "no connection" issues!

I have my Comcast Cable Modem upstairs in my office. The modem is connected to the Cable line, phone line, and a "Belkin Play N600" Router. Also in my upstairs office I have an Epson NX515 wired/wieless network printer connected to the 1st of four LAN ports on the back of my Belkin router. Although I can use the printer over a wireless home network, I'd like to keep it as a wired network printer to reduce the amount of wireless "congestion" in my house. That's it for upstairs, but now comes the hard/confusing part.

Originally, the Belkin Router was directly connected to my parents' E-machines WinXP computer downstairs through a "dead" Cat-5e cable that we snaked through the wall from the office upstairs to the office downstairs. I call it a "dead" cable because it's not actually connected to the internet...it's a long piece of Cat-5e cable connected from an ethernet port in the wall upstairs to an ethernet port in the wall downstairs and nothing else; so technically, the cable just links the upstairs to t...

Hello,

I just recently bought a TPLINK TD W8950ND wireless N router. I have connected it to the internet and it works fine but the Ethernet speeds are reduced compared to my Netgear DG834GU. The wireless speeds on the wireless N router are indeed faster and the range is better, even though sometimes it loses wireless connection and doesn't connect until it is restarted.

To solve this problem I decided to try make the Netgear my primary router and connect the PC to that via Ethernet for its superior speeds, then connect that routers LAN to the tplinks wan port to share the internet connection wirelessly for its superior wireless capability. The problem is the internet connection is not being shared. I do no know much about networking but I set the routers to different static addresses within the subnet and turned off DCHP on the tplink router.

ANY help or different solutions would be welcome.

P.S. I find it odd that the TP link has slower Ethernet speeds being a newer modem router then the netgear, maybe its a configuration issue? because the line speed reads pretty high but the actual speed is no where near

I find it odd that the TP link has slower Ethernet speedsClick to expand...

My suspicion is a defective router.

When you daisy-chain routers the way you describe the Dhcp server of the second one must be enabled and almost always the routers need to be using different LAN subnets. Since you did not state any desire to protect the wireless devices from the ethernet connected ones I suggest putting everything on one LAN ...

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.

I am having all sorts of problems with the set up and performance of two Airport Extremes at a client house. One Airport Express (AE) is connected in the basement directly to a cablevision modem. The second airport extreme is connected in the Office to an ethernet Jack in the wall. On two different occasions I have felt like they were set up correctly, but somehow the wireless is still intermittent. Sometimes I cannot connect to the wireless and other times the network just goes down. I am creating a network with the AE Basement and designating a SSID and no encryption. I am duplicating this for the 5GHZ Band as well. THen I am setting the AE- Office using a bridge connection and the same SSID and no encryption like the AE-Basement.. I have read alot about how to do this set up, but either I am not doing something right or the AE Devices are faulty. I would greatly appreciate any help or tips on how to get this set up to work.

Hola amigos,
I have a home setup with a wired router connected to my main desktop (windows xp sp3), and also have a second physical landline in my office with another wireless router connected to it. My work provide this, even though it's not really necessary. Both connect to a 1meg internet service. I can put an smc dongle in my desktop and connect no problem to the office wifi router, this at the same time as the wired router being connected. Looking at the firewall log, the outbound and inbound traffic then you see both IPs 192.168.1.10 for my desktop and 192.168.1.30 through the office router being used by the machine. There is however, no real change in the maximum bandwidth. I downloaded a large workfile and it maxed out at the same 104/105 kbps

My question is can i configure this set-up to utilise the full 2 megs available to me through the one machine? With my office line getting very little use, and my area only having modest 1meg max speed, it seems a shame not to take this option if it was available. Many thanks if you can help
 

A:Connecting to my wireless and cable routers at the same time (pos double bandwidth?)

This has been desired by many people, but it does not work
Why? It is a routing problem. Your current routing is shown bynetstat -r​
To do what you want, you would need Asynchronous Transfer Mode where each packet can
be individually routed (and that takes special hardware and software)

As is, EVERYTHING gets routed to your Default Gateway on the interface where the connection was created.
If the connection goes to IF#1, then all traffic will go/come on that IF.

Hi

Was just wondering whether it is possible to connect a normal Ethernet connection to ATM. I'm currently doing a networking module at university and we need to give 50 users access to a network. Each user needs to have access to 600mb connection in order to use an application. Is it possible to connect each work station up with normal Ethernet using CAT6 to a hub and then connect the hub to an ATM connection. As far as I can see this is the only choice anyone got any ideas!

Cheers

Hello.

A thunderstorm knocked out my cable Internet connection 2 weeks ago.

Several cable technicians came to my house. The last said that my Ethernet card was probably not working. I'm connecting through the USB port at the moment.

I was thinking of just using an adapter to turn the USB into an Ethernet port, to save myself the trouble of installing a new Ethernet card. However, my connection has been slow since we were connected through USB, and I'm worried that this will continue if I merely use an adapter.

Does anyone have a recommendation as to whether I should change the Ethernet card or use the adapter? We want to use our router again (for Vonage) and eventually, we may get a wireless router.

Many thanks in advance.

Recently I have moved house and want to connect via an Ethernet cable to the internet rather than WiFi in the hopes of higher speeds. My problem is that the computer says that there is not cable connected (although a connection does flash up briefly every so often).

I have already: tested that the cable and port work using my laptop (no problem there)
uninstalled my network card and allowed windows to re-install it
checked for loose connections

I have also noted that the light in the Ethernet port on the computer is lit solid yellow when the cable is connected and the computer in not turned on but as soon as i boot it up and the OS starts running the light turns off.

If you are trying to connect with an ethernet cable, you need to have a Local Area Connection in Network connections, but it seems you do not have that.

Since you haven't told us what OS > Right click on My Computer/Computer and choose properties. Click on Hardware, then Device Manager. Check for Ethernet Controller or Other Devices. Your ethernet may be disabled or not installed properly.

First off, do you have user access accounts for both computers? I learned that when using my WinXP-Win98FE crossover cable connection you need a user ID on the Windows XP machine. That's so you can access the files/folder being shared.

For example when you log on to Windows 98 and it ask for a user ID and password right? So make sure that the user ID and password are the same as the one on the XP machine.

You can try www.wown.com. It helped me alot with some basic network stuff.

Before, it was working fine, but some viruses started to mess around with the internet and registry keys, but I believe I have cleared almost all of the malware, if not all of it.
The last time I was able to connect to the internet was May 20th, I've neglected this computer for a while, and now the antivirus programs (Malwarebytes, Comodo) are out of date.

Question is ... the pc I want to connect to has a USB hpna network device fitted which connects to a distant pc. The IP is 192.168.0.2
There is no possibility of fitting hubs or anything between the pc's as in different buildings.
If I install drivers on the pc, and add printer using tcp/ip, will this interfere with the hpna network already installed?
If it's ok, should the ethernet connector on the pc use a different IP to the one used for the hpna network?
i.e. set ethernet on pc to 192.168.0.xxx and sub to 255.255.255.0 and set static IP at printer.
There is no need to share the printer across pc's .... just need to access from single pc.
If that will work, must the cable be crossover or straight thro?
Thank you. Cheers Plbee

Desktop only connects when router is bypassed - i.e., directly connected to cable modem. Curiously desktop did connect to the internet when the router was first installed - worked both wired and wirelessly. Now - "limited connection"via the router. I have recycled the cable modem.
 

A:Problem connecting via ethernet to router

I started your own thread for you here.

Getting an APIPA (169.254.x.y) means that the computer did not get a IP assigned by the router. Could be that the router's Dhcp server is disabled or its address range is exhausted, defective cable, defective NIC, incorrect driver, or a firewall/security suite issue.

My top suspect (should I say educated guess since we haven't done any trouble shooting yet?) is that Norton is not properly configured or is corrupted. It may be configured to allow the public IP you get when connecting to the modem but to block the private IPs from the router. Suggest that you uninstall Norton and run Symantec's Norton Removal Tool. You can then reinstall it, if desired, after the problem is solved.

Also, in whatever order you prefer, check out those two Dhcp server issues and the cable possibility.

my dad bought a wireless router so that we can have the internet on our computer and so i can go online on my ps3 aswell

however, i have a problem, my computer/laptop is quite old (bought in 2002) and it does not have an ethernet port to plug the ethernet cable in (or just not one the right size anyway). Since the instalation CD that came with the "D-Link DKT-710 Wireless G ADSL2 +starter kit" router says that to intall the router you need to switch it on and connect it to the computer via the ethernet cable.

thats the problem, how can i connect it to the computer if my computer doesnt have an ethernet port...?

are there any routers that do not use ethernet cables, or do i just have to buy a new computer if i want to have a wireless network(or any network for that matter)...?

any suggestions on what i should do, or what other router would work ?.......and incase you need to know, my current modem connects through a usb port to my computer, aparently that effects what type i will need.
 

A:connecting my router, ethernet problem...

You can buy add-in cards that add networking functionality. I have a few old PC's that I have had to put in a PCI ethernet card into. You can also get wireless but for a desktop, I recommend ethernet.
If it's a laptop, you can get a card that fits into the expansion slots on the side. If you don't have those you can get them with USB. USB would also work on a desktop if your not confident in delving into your computers innards.
Personally I would use USB as a last resort as they are known to be unreliable. I'd go for expansion slot in a laptop and get a wireless card and get a PCI ethernet card if it's a desktop. Either are easily available from local computer stores or bigger chains. If you know online sites, they would have them too.

This is a 2week old laptop is able to connect through the internet through my school's and home's wireless network. Plus I can use the school's ethernet cable, no problem. However, my laptop does not recognize my laptop in my home's network. It always responds (ethernet cable connected) as a unidentified network). I have tried the using several methods that have worked for people but none of these have worked for me:

1) I've made sure the wireless router firmware is up to date.
2) I've made sure the IP and DNS look ups are automatically under both TCP/IPv6 and TCP/IPv4)
3) I've turned off firewalls.
4) I've checked to make sure that my Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet was working properly.
