Extending Existing Wired / Wireless Network?

Jun 8, 2011

I have an existing network in a 300 year old structure. There is a base router from which there are 3 wired (ethernet) lines to parts of the structure. Due to the structure itself (near 2 ft thick walls - masonry) the wireless from the base router reaches only a short distance. I would like to "extend" the wireless reach using those 3 existing runs. So - can I add 3 more routers or should I go with Wireless Access Points or what else would work?

Extending Network To Go From Wireless To Wired?

Feb 17, 2013

I want to go from my asus rt-n66u router wirelessly to another device that I can plug an ethernet cord from a desktop computer. I work on computers and my workstation cannot be close to my router. Instead of installing a wireless adapter everytime I work on a computer, I want something that I can plug an ethernet cord into that will connect wirelessly to my router. I just want to get an internet connection to my work computers without having to run an ethernet cord across my front room. I have read so much about bridging and access points but can't really figure out what would be best or what my router is capable of. I have tried in WDS mode and couldn't get to work with another router I have and also read it cuts you bandwidth and also forces you to use WEP securit

Adding Wireless AP To Existing Wired Lan?

Feb 4, 2013

I currently have a wired network which starts with a cable router downstairs which is a virgin media netgear box with firewall and DHCP turned on. I have a NAS server and a smart tv which run off ethernet connections to this router.then have a cable run upstairs to a TPlink gigabit switch which is connected to a PC and a printer (in my study). All this works just fine, no configuration needed.I have a TPlink wireless router, a TL-WR743ND. I want to use this to connect to the switch upstairs (not downstairs - my stone walls limit any wireless access point) to provide wireless network coverage for my house.So I figured I should configure it with a dynamic IP address (ie it gets it from the netgear DHCP), turn off the TPLink's DHCP and firewall, and then any wireless devices attached to the TPLink by wireless should have access to printer and NAS

Extending Wireless Network With Second Router?

Apr 29, 2013

I live in a house with three floors. I have a Virgin Media Superhub on the ground floor with the 30MB package. Whilst the wireless signal quality and speed is good on the ground and first floor, it is intermitent on the second floor and my son wants to connect his PS3 with a wired connection for speed.

I have a N wireless router that I was using before I receiced the new Virgin Superhub. I want to ask if I can connect the old wireless router in my son's room on the second floor and connect it with a Cat5e ethernet cable to the Superhub on the ground floor. This way, I will have a wired connection on the ground floor for my desktop computer, my son will have a wired connection for his PS3 and laptop and his own wireless network.

I just want to know if this will work with an ordinary cable wireless router? Or do I need some sort of special access point? If this will work, do I connect the cable from the Superhub to the WAN port of the old router, or to one of the four other ethernet ports?

Wireless :: Extending Signal Range Of Wifi Network

Feb 8, 2013

Sending WiFi signal about 1/4 mile from my home to where my daughter lives so she can use her Samsung Galaxy2 Tablet on WiFi.There are homes, condos and trees in between us, so it is not a clear path.So far this is what I have done.I am using a modem and a Netgear WNR834B Wireless N Router.I connected a Hawkins Laptop Extender (HWREN Wireless 150N Mini Extender * single antenna outlet) into the router and connected a WiFi cable from the Hawkins to my tower outside above my roof and have attached a 10 dbi gain Trendnet antenna (omnidirectional) to the cable.But still the WiFi signal doesn't seem to be very strong at all when I test with my phone.And obviously, my daughters tablet does not see my router when she has her tablet search for WiFi.I also tried a 14dbi WIfi ASUS directional antenna and basically came up with the same outcome... she could not see the WiFi signal..My daughter lives in a condo and is not capable or allowed to install any outside antenna system whatsoever.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Extending Same Network In 2 Different Rooms Using E3000?

May 11, 2011

I have a Linksys e3000 and a Linksys WRT120NVery simple setup. the 3000 is in my office. There is a cable that goes from this routerto the living room across the house, it is just laying there. Since I cannot get a wireless signal into that room,I would like, using the cable that is hanging there to make use of the other linksys and provide a wireless signal to the living room, all under the same network. In essence, extending the wireless network using the cable in the living room that is connected to the main router in my office.My question is, without touching the master router, how would I set the 2nd router in the living room up?I understand that DHCP on the 2nd router needs to be turned off, and a channel selected so that it does not overlap. Same SSID, Sam WPA2 key.Or would there be a device better suited for this?I do not want to extend the 2 rooms wirelessly I want to use the cable, then use the wireless in the living room for wireless devices etc.

Cisco Wireless :: E3000 With WAP4410N As Repeater For Extending Network Coverage

Dec 20, 2010

I am trying to setup an E3000 router and extending the network with a WAP4410N acting as a repeater.

I am faced with the same problem and it looks like it all comes down to this: without the WAP4410N having a physical connection to the LAN, it will not connect to the E3000 as a wireless client whether it's configured in AP mode: WDS Repeater or in client/repeater.
I've tested with various permutations that have been explored in the various discussions: matching channels/bandsmatching and non-matching SSIDs matching security settings using site survey to set the mac address of the E3000 (ensuring it's the MAC of the 2.4Ghz wireless)setting a static IP on the WAP4410Nensuring both devices are on the same subnet. Any way to be truly successful with this pair up of E3000 & WAP4410N or is it simply a technical product limitation?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Extending E4200 Network With Apple Airport Extreme?

Sep 22, 2011

I've recently purchased an E4200, and while it works great, I'd like to use my Apple Airport Extreme (2nd generation) to extend my network to another part of the house that doesn't get as great of a signal.  I've become very frustrated trying to accomplish it, and I'm not sure if the problem is more from the Linksys end, the Airport end, or if it's just me.

Cisco Wireless :: 1240AG Extending Wireless Network

Nov 8, 2012

I have an Aironet 1240AG.  I resides inside a building with its antenna placed on the outside of the building.  In direct line of site, I have a light pole to which I could attach another wireless access point to extend my wireless network.  This access point would have to be "rugged".  Also, it would have to be able to be bridged to the current access point.  In reviewing outdoor wireless access points, it appears that the 1552 is the way to go.

Connect A Dir-301 To An Existing Wireless Network?

Jul 4, 2012

I have a DIR-301 router connected to a Virgin cable modem. It provides the Internet to the PC and wirelessly to other devices (like my iPhone, my wife's Android phone and my iBook) with no problems.I recently bought a Sony TV that has an ethernet port on the back. The Sony wireless dongle they offer (UWA-BR100) is stupidly expensive, so I thought I'd try a wired connection via an access point.I bought another DIR-301 from eBay, as it was advertised as an access point which I thought would give the TV an Internet connetion.I've tried everything I can think of and have been advised, but I can't get a connection via the TV.

Cisco :: E2000 Wireless AP With Existing Network

Aug 4, 2011

I have been deploying various wireless AP's in my network for years and years.  We have a Cisco network with at least 30 different subnets, and we use EIGRP as our dynamic routing protocol.  I have always wanted our AP's to act like a switch instead of a router.  So I have always disabled DHCP, assigned it a static LAN IP address, and plugged it into my network on one of its 1-4 switchports, and not using the "internet" port.  This goes for all my routers (varying Linksys/Cisco models, and even a couple old Netgears).
I have been realizing lately that once I get an AP build and sent out to the remote location (on a different subnet), I can usually no longer web into it.  I am in the middle of deploying an NPS server to do 802.1x authentication, and I'm realizing that the E2000 I'm using cannot ping or see the NPS server which is on a different subnet.  So, I'm sure I'm missing something.On this E2000, I have disabled the SPI firewall, turned off NAT, enabled dynamic routing, etc.  But I can't ping devices on another subnet from the E2000.  I also can't ping url... or other URL's from the E2000.  It will not resolve them.  (My DNS servers are on another subnet... same subnet as the NPS server). [code] Is there something I'm missing on my wireless APs?  Do I need to configure my Cisco routers to use RIP in addition to EIGRP?

Extending Wifi Network At Home?

May 8, 2012

have a home network setup that works completely fine everywhere in the house except one room. That room happens to be my son's room that has his Xbox 360 in it. He wants to play online but I cant get a signal back in there and if I do it is extremely weak. I have a linksys E2500 router connected to my cable modem that is wired ot one computer and then my 2 laptops connect to the wireless from that router. The Playstation 3 that is about 15 feet away works fine as well. All our ipods and iPhones work well too. It is only his bedroom where we run into trouble with any of these devices. I actually just upgraded to the E2500 about 2 months ago, so I have a Motorola WR850G sitting around. Can I use this closer to his room to lengthen my signal or how can I proceed to get him a better signal

Extending A Network With Additional Wifi Router?

Jul 25, 2012

As my original Innbox V50U modem/router does not have a strong enough wifi signal I had to add in an additional wifi router - I used a Cisco Linksys E4200.The problem is that if I connect my laptop to the cisco router I can see the Innbox router but not vice versa. There is an additional problem as I have a wireless printer that is connected to the Cisco router. If I connect to the Innbox router I cannot use this printer as I cannot see its IP address.I read somewhere it might be down to the subnet mask. both are set to if this is n00b stuff but I have not had this problem before, I just naturally though the two networks would be able to talk to each-other.
