Connecting Multiple Routers Via Ethernet Cable For Range?
Dec 20, 2012
Although I haven't looked through all the forum topics I couldn't find anything very similar to my situation. I have a rather large house and my modem/router (Netgear DGND3300 v2 due to DSL) is in the very corner. Given this most of the opposite corner of my house gets either poor or no connection; however, I do have an ethernet cable run across the house through the basement to my home theatre setup. This is where I encounter another problem, I need multiple devices to be connected via ethernet and I also need to have wireless in that same area. In my mind I picture myself connecting a second router to this ethernet cable through which I could have wired connections to all my devices, and a second router broadcasting wirelessly. I'm familiar with some types of wireless bridging, but I'd rather use more of a wired bridge concept if possible, but I've never really seen something like this. The question is, is this possible? Or, what is another possible way to achieve the same results? The only other thing I can think of is to run an ethernet hub from the original wired connection to my home theatre so I can connect multiple ethernet devices and run a separate wireless extender or something, but this just seems pricy.
I've got a Cisco DPC3825 modem that I also use as a wifi router. Conntected to it I have 4 eithernet cables:
1. From PC to Router
2. From another PC to router
3. From TV to router
4. From a Dlink Powerline Adapter to Router.It took me a while to figure this out but when I unplug all the eithernet cables and plug back in #1 and #2 (from above) the internet works. When I plug back in #3 and #4, the internet dies. Meaning, I am connected to the network but not the internet. I've reset the modem, changed SSID and restarted the PC many times but still can't figure out this issue.
Is there a difference in an ethernet cable and an Ethernet networking cable? I have an Ethernet cable and a 6 port splitter I am trying to connect. I have 4 ports in the router that are in use. When I connect them to the splitter nothing s working.
Yesterday my main computer lost internet connectivity after avast! ran an antivirus scan and removed several viruses. I spent much of the day yesterday researching the possible problems and did not come up with any solutions.My computer's OS is vista, and the network status says it is, "Connected to identifying". If there is any additional information you will need, I will gladly provide.
I am having problems connecting my PC (Win7) to my Router (Netgear DGN2000) via ethernet cable.Wi-fi is working fine but I want to speed up my connection using the PC's Gigabit port. Here are the problems:
- When connecting via wi-fi everything is fine
- When enabling my LAN WITH wi-fi still enabled I lose all internet connectivity
- When enabling my LAN and disabling wi-fi lose all internet connectivity
Here is my IP Config when both are enabled :

The last time I had to reconfigure the connections it took me hours!My son had to wipe his desktop clean and reinstall everything. Now when he tried to connect to the internet we can't get a connection at all. My desktop is still working fine as well as the wireless laptops.What do we have to do to get him reconnected?
wireless networking in their home. Their home is built of bricks (inside walls and outside), so basically going about 10 feet around a wall will drop a wireless signal.One problem is that the router outside in the office has a separate network than the router inside of the house by the kitchen. They're both configured to use different SSIDs/encryption keys, etc, but they both are connected via ethernet cable. Problem is, moving from one side of the house, she has to switch her tablet/iPhone to the network being broadcasted by the first router, and then vice versa when going around the second wireless network.
Can I just simply configure the router inside as a wireless bridge and use the exact same SSID/encryption etc and have only one network show up regardless of which one she's closest to?I basically want to set up her network to where she just needs one wireless network, and no matter where she go in her house, she's connected to the same network (regardless of which router it's connected to), and still have internet access.
I have a situation where i am looking at using 3 WAG320N routers.
I have a house that is 50sq in size. I am looking to setup one WAG320N in the study with the ADSL connection and setup wireless.
Can i then hardwire a second WAG320N in the back bedroom and set it up with the same Wireless network so they can move seamlessly through the house? I will of course disable DHCP, but can it act in repeater mode?
I will then have a wire from the 2nd router to a wireless P2P link to a shed located 200 meters away, with a 3rd Router in the shed that i can have hard wired ports as well as wireless?
I have a home lab. I am trying to connect a 1710 to a 2610 with just using the fast ethernet ports. I understand that serial connections and t1 csu/dsu connections use clocking, etc. How can I configure FA ports to do the same AND be routable?
I am have a little trouble setting up my home lab. I have a 3620 with two ethernet ports and a 3640 with four ethernet ports. I also have a 3500XL switch that I am using to connect the two together, but I can't seem to get each one to ping.
Here are my configs:

I am trying to connect a Netgear wirless router to my cable modem. I have followed the instructions on the set up wizard but it fails to get a connection with the IP and DNS info I provide.I got the IP address info by connecting intially direct from the modem to the PC and then went to Run CMD and type ipconfig /all. I then started the set up wizard and followed the instructions, turning things on in specific order etc. After input the IP and DNS info it reports an error and tells me to check the address information is correct.My internet is a static IP connection (so it tells me and the IP information doesn't change).
I tried to bridge two wireless routers wirelessly, but after extensive research I came to the conclusion that this wasn't possible.
Now I am trying to connect these two routers through a cat5 cross-over cable and I wanted to know whether can I disable DHCP on the router which has internet, and enable the DHCP of the router which is connected to the printers, because I have a few systems that shouldn't be connected to the internet.
What I had in mind is if I switch the DHCP OFF on the internet router and turn it ON on the Huawei B683 router, I could add those devices' MAC addresses to the internet gateway router to deny them access to the internet..?
I am having a problem with my Realtek RTL8168D/8111D PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC. It is not detecting my ethernet cable, and thus leaving me without internet on my desktop, after i updated its driver. The cable is not the problem as I have tested the cable with my laptop. I tried rolling back drivers, doing system restore and removing drivers with driversweeper and letting windows install the drivers again. However, none of these worked for me. I doubt the NIC is faulty as it was working before i updated the drivers. I am using windows 7 home premium 64-bit.
I am struggling to get our 887VA setup for our config.
We have a public IP range from our ISP and we have multiple servers behind our router. One of the servers need large ranges of ports open so I have ended up trying to use a ‘rotary’ nat pool which works fine but I cannot get the other servers to NAT correctly on their ports. It seems the rotary takes over.
Here is a snip of my config.

I have a WAG160N wireless gateway . Yesterday when i tried to power it on after a couple of seconds the power led was solid green and the Ethernet leds were blinking with no Ethernet cable attached to the router . The ethernet leds would keep blinking for minutes . I tried to use a screwdriver to do a hardware reset ( with power on ) and i noticed that the power led would start blinking green/red for minutes . I tried to use another wired router which i have for backup and it could connect to the internet normally without a problem.
What the green / red blinking power led means ( power led is green and then changes to red and then it starts over ) ?
I have a Dell XPS M1530 with Vista 32 bit. When i plug in a cable i get nothing, no error, and the comp does not recognize that a cable has been plugged in. I think that this started after my Hard drive failed and Dell replaced it but i'm not positive. No errors (? or !) in Device Manager and I can't find the Marvell 88E80XX 10/100 Ethernet Controller in device manager. I have attempted to Reinstall the drivers. The wireless is still working. I have one Light to the right of the port that is on all the time solid but no flashing with the cable in or out.
I am currently working on a job that has roadside equipment sending in data to an office-based instation server via a private APN. This is currently working fine and data is being received. However, for maintenance reasons its is necessary to connect from the instation server back out to the roadside equipment's web GUI. Currently this isn't working! I think this is because they are on different IP ranges. [code] I've tried messing about with adding routes and changing the mask address but so far have had no luck.
So lately my computer's wireless network has started to get really bad, we have 100mbit, and it only gets about 0.3. This seems to be an issue with the range, or something, since if i move the computer right next to the router, it runs at about 50-60mbit. Now a few days ago i decided to get an ethernet cable to try and solve the issue, but my computer doesn't detect a LAN connection, only the wireless one ( atleast it doesnt show up among the other connections). Some weeks ago the wireless connection worked nicely, but now suddenly it doesnt anymore. Currently i'm typing this from an old mac computer, since my internet doesn't work at all on my pc.
Im having problems staying connected to my internet. I have Verizon Fios router that is wired into this desktop i also have 2 laptops and now im trying to connect a second desktop wirelessly to the router. My Netgear Rangemax PCI picks up the signal at 68% and connects to the router. But periodically it disconnects from the router and i click connect to a network icon and it shows that i have no wireless internet as if no PCI card is installed so i wait a min then it shows up again and windows network diagnostic kicks in and "resets the network adapter" and all is well for about 15min till it disconnects again.
My Dell XPS (Windows XP) is not connecting to my network..can't get anything to show up on the networks in range list. My other laptop is fine. But I just upgraded to Firefox 4 on the Dell, and then the connectivity went askew.
I have DSL service with AT&T and I have a Motorola 3360 modem. We also have a /28 network of static IPs from AT&T. When I login using PPPoE on the modem it gets x.x.x.190 as it's address. Our range is 177-190. I have two ASA 5510s in an active/passive failover configuration with the Ethernet port of the modem and one interface of each of the ASAs on a dumb layer 2 switch.
I want to setup this DSL connection as a backup to our main Internet connection. I cannot figure out what setting on the DSL modem to use to make this happen. I know I cannot use PPPoE in a failover setting so I can't have the modem in bridged mode. There is some mode where it passes the 190 address to the connected device and when I plug in a PC directly to the modem and set it for DHCP it does get 190 as it's address. So do I configure the ASA interface as 190 with one of the other addresses as it's standby? What do I set my route on the ASA to for use of this connection? Can I then make use of these other static addresses when plugging other devices into the layer 2 switch?
Just got a WAG120N modem/router , everything is set up and works fine.But I am very disappointed with its wifi range.After using an iPhone and a PSP , I found that, its range is 1,80 meters only, in empty room.Is it faulty ? I cant believe its range is too short although I know that its not "enhanced speed & range" as typed on box.I tried all combination of channels/protocols with no success and it's already flashed on latest version. I really cant connect to my wifi devices.
