Just got an HDTV, has a load of fancy internet stuff, but only has a wired connection and I can't put my router in this room, and would rather not have to run a wire up from downstairs.
I'm guessing there is a way of connecting to the wireless on my laptop in this room, connect the laptop to the tv via an ethernet cabe, and bridge the connections or something so that my tv gets the internet from the laptop. That's gotta be possible, no? When I try it tho, the connections bridge, but the tv says "Gateway is not connected, gateway address wrong or unavailable". Using auto IP.
I am having internet connected to my Desktop with Win XP. Internet mode is Wireless Data Card that can be inserted into USB port. Now I have a laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium. I was able to connect both of them using ethernet cross over cable and successfully enabled file sharing through Local Area Network. But I want to access Internet from the laptop. Is it possible?
FYI, when I typed ipconfig in cmd prompt in desktop, PPP adapter High Speed Data: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
I am still not able to get internet access through my network switch. Where I want to have the switch, I have a TV (with LAN port), PS3, a network capable hard drive, and a iMac. I want to be able to connect the switch to the ethernet jack on the wall and then connect the components to the switch. So here is a map of what I want to do:Actiontech Router (FIOS standard) ---> LAN port on the wall ----->D-Link DGS-1005G switch---->PS3,hard drive, iMac, TV.When I try this setup, everything looks fine, but I do not have internet access. When I connect directly to the wall jack, I always get internet connection. I have tried two different switches, but still no avail.I have tried assigning static IPs to each of the systems, but have had no luck in getting them to connect. The LAN jack is wired directly into the actiontech router. The range on the router is 192.168.1.10-192.168.1.256 (192.168.1.2 is a dd-wrt range extender).
I'm in university halls, using the university wireless network. The network seems to be a large number of routers all with the same SSID on the same network.Usually my connection is great; but sometimes my computer decides to switch to the router from another flat. A few minutes ago my wireless config utility told me I was connected to the flat 24 router. I am now connection to the flat 26 router. It wouldn't be much of a problem, only it's give or take, around 140 times slower because of how far away it is. Heres a quick comparison of the speeds:ad Connection: (The ping here is very mis-leading, it took several minutes to calculate the ping and several more minutes simply to start the download whereas on the previous test it was instant)Here is one I took in December which shows how bad the ping can get:How do I tell my computer to ignore those other routers with the same SSID? They have different MAC addresses, is there something I can do with that? Windows can't tell the difference, I have to do it through the driver software that came with my Edimax wireless card, it recognises each router seperately but ultimately it always recognises it primarily by it's SSID. Sometimes it sticks to the good one, sometimes it changes every few minutes and I have to manually change it back and it is very frustrating, can't it just ignore the bad connection completely?
I can't login to change any of the router settings and the router doesn't have any ethernet ports for students to use, so I need a solution from the PC end (If I could i'd simply change the SSID to something slightly different so it didn't clash, then there would be no problem). The router is literally right outside my door, but my computer insists on switching to the one 50 metres away instead
I have a home network. There are a total of 3 PCs. Each runs Server 2008 32 bit. One PC - Lets say Server A has 2 NICs with Ip addresses, 10.0.0.10/30, 10.0.0.2/30.Other two computers Server B and Server C have single NIC with addresses 10.0.0.1/30 and 10.0.0.9/30 resp. So as you can see that there are two subnets 10.0.0.2 - 1 and 10.0.0.9 - 10. I can ping B and C from A. I want that B and C can also ping each other and if I run tracert on B or C, it should give me the route to the destination via A. All this without any other hardware. Like using route add... etc eg. if I write tracert 10.0.0.9 on B, it should return a route like 10.0.0.1-----10.0.0.10------10.0.0.9. Refer to the image that I have Attached
I have a high speed wireless DSL router from my ISP (Telus). I use one port off the router to connect directly to my desktop computer. Another port is connected to a switch to which ethernet cables to three other rooms are connected. My problem is that when I connect my Bell PVR (9242) to the 'switched' ethernet cable, I'm apparently not able to get a dynamic ip address, which the Bell unit requires, and can't connect to the network.can I connect another router, in place of the switch, to deliver dynamic IP addresses to whatever I connect to the ports in the other rooms in my house?
I have a Thomson TG585 v7 router which is in bridge mode. I also have a NetGear DGND3300v2 router which I would like to connect to the Thomson (eventually I will purchase a switch and connect another device along with the NetGear). The problem is that the NetGear only has 4 LAN ports and no WAN ports, which I assume you would need to set this up.
I have an AirPort Express set up as my router, and that works fine and is the main network that I use. I also have a Linksys WRT54GL that is wired to a printer.Currently, when I want to print from my computer, I have to manually connect to the Linksys network, which is a pain. I would like to wirelessly connect the Linksys to my main network, so I can print even when connected to my Airport Express.Does that mean that I have to configure the Linksys as an access point? A bridge? Something else? How do I do that?
So I am contemplating the setup for the network in my new home, how to connect 24+ ethernet ports in the house to a single network. I was thinking of getting a nice dual-band wireless router, but those usually only come with 4 or so lan ports. How would I then utilize a large 24- or 48-port switch to connect everything to the router?
Ex: Actually my problem is, i'm using Dlink 8 port switch, and 40 computers connected indirectly to that switch, few times getting issues like packet drops, internet connecting & disconnecting etc. so i want to know either the switch is capable or not.
on my home network I currently only run an Airlink101 AR675W router. We have a couple issues with this. The router for one is in my basement and there are points in my house that have low signal strength, especially upstairs in the far corners of the home. Second is I am currently running my home PC as a media center but it is set-up wirlessly so streaming is clunky and jittery. Also on this network is 3 X-box's wired, a PS3 running wirless, 2 PC's wired in, 2 wirless laptops and the afore mentioned wirless PC. A lot of weight for the network. What I want to do is move the router upstairs, hardwire it into my wireless PC (the one doing the streaming) and connect a second router (an identical make and model I am buying this weekend) downstairs which will be basically used as an "expansion" of the wirless and a switch for the hardwired devices downstairs. would this be better than simply moving the wirless router upstairs (hardwiring my PC) and putting a 5 or 8 port switch in downstairs for the X-box's and 2 wired PC's there?
Our desktop is connected to a cable modem and I always connected wireless with my laptop. When I changed my linksys wireless adapter I tried to get on the internet and it would not connect to the linksys router, so I then do not know exactly what I did,but the result was that i finally had a connection. That was a month ago and I finally looked at the network mapping after I noticed the desktop was on a lan network and the cable connection was flagged. Apparently, I created something called a switch with the router and now I have a whole new network in my name that has the cable connection.
Is there any way to disable router devices from connecting to your network? For example I want people to connect ethernet cables to their laptops, ps3s, pcs, etc but not to routers. How would one go about doing that?
I recently set up a VPN on my home computer. I am wondering if it is possible for me to connect to the internet via the VPN without also being connected to the internet via my home wireless network? Right now, whenever I disconnect from my home wireless network, my connection to the VPN will also cut off. This is a problem because should my connection via the VPN ever be interrupted, my home wireless connection would then "take over" the connection, and the eb sites I'm visiting would then be able to see my real IP address, which makes having a VPN pointless. I'd like to have it so that if my VPN connection is interrupted, I will simply not have internet until the VPN connection comes back.

How the password is correct, the firmware is updated, it finds the home network but when I press connect it tries a few seconds then says unsuccessful
the unit itself is Pandigital Novel 7" the router is a Dynex Wireless router with : WPA/WPA2Personel(PSK) Encryption is : TKIP +AES 802.11e QoS is on Wireless mode is both g and b Wifi protection has been both on and off trying to connect SSID is correct and broadcasting.
We got the thing so her ha;f blind mom can play a few games, but I need to connect to download then, either that or know how to download them to the computer then transfer them to the Pandigital?
I have 6 computers connected in LAN network. In one of the machines(client_1) i have installed the VMWARE.VMWare and Clinet_1 are talking to each other whereas VMWare and other clients are not getting connected. I tried various solutions from the internet but all in vain...i would like to have vmware as another machine in my LAN with incoming and outgoing connections to access files.
I just installed my new TV by Samsung UA55D6400. it's great. I understand that it can be connected to local home net. it has Wireless LAN Built-in BU no Wireless LAN Adapter Support. What I have to buy and install in order to connect it to the local net and also stream movies to it?
I have a cable wireless router in the ground floor lounge and have set up a home wireless network. In the upstairs study we have two desktop computers connected to the router via the wireless network. I have a laptop computer used around the house and garden which also uses the wireless network.A laser printer and an inkjet printer are both connected to one of the computers in the study via USB and are shared with all computers.This means that the computer with the printers connected must by running if anyone requires prints. Both printers have USB and Ethernet ports – but running a network cable to the router downstairs is impractical.Is there a way of connecting the printers directly to the network and leave them powered up so they can be used by any of the computers. I am hoping that there is some extra hardware that will enable me to do this perhaps via wireless.Or – would it be possible to use mains Powerline Network adaptors – with one adapter connected by Ethernet cable to the router and other adaptors connected by cable to each printer.
What I learned was it was bad to connect directly to the modem because you are left open to the internet. Currently my friend just got the internet and I told them to buy a router but they did not, and just have it directly connected to the modem. Is this fine, because they only have one computer, and it works fine for now, but wouldn't this be prone for attack?
Unlike most DVR's, this particular model has a 4-Channel RJ-45 input (others normally have analog BNC video inputs) this is achieved since the cameras come with video baluns which make use of ethernet (RJ-45) wire.can I have such a set-up without using a DVR, instead I would channel 4 cameras to a wireless router with 4 RJ-45 inputs? From there maybe I could connect it to the internet for remote viewing or to a home network for better streaming / saving video recorded into hard disk?
I'm having issues connecting a HP 9000dn printer to my home network. I have windows 7 x64 with a Belkin wireless router. I have the printer (via a jetdriect 615n driver) connected to my router and the computer will not see the printer. I'm a newbie to networking
I have a computer that was previously connected on-site (hard wired) to a corporate network. I am now attempting to connect it on-site to my home network. While I have a live Internet connection going into the computer, I cannot connect to the Internet. Is there soem sort of setting adjustment that i need to make?
I recently was given an old computer from work. I tried to connect it to the internet at home but it wouldn't connect. The icon at the bottom shows that it is connected but the web browser shows that i'm not connected. All the computers at work are connected to a network so there may be some settings that won't allow it to connect at home. I did go on to internet options under connections and changed the default connection from the work network to broadband but still no luck. None of the proxy boxes were checked either. The OS on this computer is Windows XP. Also, all connections to my home internet are fine.
I split my network into 2 to make it more accessible during peak time and to minimize internet traffic. However by doing this only the first network can access our Network Access Storage, the other network can access it because the two are separated by different router and switch also the supervisor need to see both network at the same time for monitoring purposes..
