Home Network With Multiple Routers

Dec 31, 2011

I have a 2 wire HomePortal 1000SW modem in our home office. Its connected to a dlink DI-524 wireless router (also in the office), which is connected to a dlink DIR-601 in the opposite end of the house, both are connected using LAN ports, not WAN. All 3 of these devices are capable of wireless, and all have the same SSID and wep encryption key (they use different channels, 1, 6, 11). As of right now, i have the DI-524's wireless disabled, and the wireless is still on for the DIR-601 and the HomePortal, but only the HomePortal has DHCP turned on. The problem I'm having is that i can connect and get assigned an ip address when I'm in the office, but if i initially connect to the network near the DIR-601, i get limited connectivity and a self-assigned IP-address.

Routers / Switches :: Setup An Home Network With A Wireless Router And Use Multiple Switches?

Jan 29, 2011

I want to setup an home network with a wireless router and use multiple switches for wired connections through out my home. I currently have an Airport extreme hooked up to a cable modem and a leviton gateway hooked up to the Airport. The 2 computers connected to the Leviton are on a windows 7 homegroup and share fine, but won't share or discover any wireless device connected to Airport. My main goal is to have a wireless/wired network with all computers sharing information with each other. I want 2-3 wired switches/gateways with a min of 2 devices connected to each, connected to my wireless router whiich is connected to cable modem.

Connecting Multiple Home Routers?

Feb 22, 2012

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.

Home Network :: Hosting Multiple Websites On Server?

Jan 8, 2012

I had setup 2 servers at home. I'm now in need of hosting 4 websites. I have 4 static public ip's. I'm currently using a router with DD-WRT firmware installed. I have setup up as static NAT. X.X.X.27 to, X.X.X.28 to This is my current setup for the existing 2 webservers which host a website each. I notice apache allows for multiple websites per server. One of the server's is a dell 2500 with 2 NIC's and will not be a problem assigning two ip's. The second server only has 1 NIC. Should I buy another NIC card for the second server or could I get by using a virtual NIC? The load on the servers isnt heavy. Only bout 20 clients connect to them daily.

Combining Multiple Internet Connections For Home Network?

Jun 17, 2012

How to make 2 (or more) connections work together and increase your final download and upload.You will need the following items

- A PC or server connected at high speed that is greater or equal to both connections speed (from a data center, You can get some very cheap $30 a month, a VPS can be good enough)

- 2 Internet connections at your home (DSL + cable for example)

- A router that supports dual WAN

- A Magic software that I can write for example

So what is needed is a way to split your data using some technology like the concept of RAID 0 (MAGIC software will be here used) and then use both IPs through the router to send the data to the server which will handle your request (it is possible to have a good usage of VPN here to forward all your traffic to the server without worrying about doing much work here). After that on the server you can reverse your RAID 0 data (using the same MAGIC software) and forward your request to the destination site that you want to visit. Same way the downloading will happen when the server receives a reply from the destination site, it will split the data using same RAID 0 technology (using the MAGIC software) and then send the data to both of your IPs. After that on your side you combine the received data (using the software) and you are done. Of course I do prefer the data splitting to happen using some hardware like a router with MAGIC software as it will be much more effective.

Home Network :: ZyWall USG20 Multiple Static IPs?

Jan 15, 2013

I've got a server that is connected to the network through one physical ethernet adapter. From my ISP, I got 4 static, public IP adresses, one of which is in use on the Host-Server itself, the remaining three each on a virtualized server. All 4 Servers are running on the same machine.Everything is running smoothly, however, I need to do some Bandwidth Management and Port Mapping, this is why I bought a ZyWall USG20, thinking it would be perfectly capable of doing what I need. is it possible, with a ZyWall USG20, to have all my four IP adresses being forwarded to the one physical machine, and apply some bandwith shaping and port mapping to it?

Home Network :: Setting Up Wifi With Multiple Access Points?

Jan 27, 2012

Well this process is self explanatory, setting up the network is easy but im running into trouble with my wireless devices connecting to the strongest signalIm not exactly sure if there is a fix for this yet or if they have not made a protocol to fix it. I have a big house with solid wall in which i have setup 3 wifi's. 1st Modem/wifi Router, 2nd Wifi access point, 3rd wifi access point. Now the problem im having is moving between the access points my devices such as my ipad are changing from one access point to the next whilst moving throughout the house (that is until it loses the first signal I believe or you turn your ipad wifi off/on so it reconnects back to the strongest/closest access point).

Home Network :: Multiple Access Points Connected By Wireless Bridge?

Sep 27, 2011

I have a router that is capable of wireless N at 5.0GHz but can't run simultaneous with it's 2.4GHz band a/b/g (Cisco Linksys E2000), so I have a second router acting as gateway for my b/g devices (and a few wired only that are nearer to it). They are connected LAN port to LAN port with 50ft of cat6 and the DHCP server running on only one router. I know this is pretty standard for multiple access points, and it works very well. But I'm moving, and in the new house, the internet access will be on one floor with the wireless N router, and the other router will need to be in the basement on the opposite end of the house, and running networking cable through the floor and walls is just too much trouble. My question is, can I replace the previous wired method with a wireless N bridge attached to the LAN port of the router in the basement and have it function in the same way as it did when it was wired, with only the DHCP server running on the wireless N router, and all devices attached to either router able to see each other? I would assume so, but I would like to know from anyone who has experience with it before I go buying the bridge.

Home Network :: Setting Up Networks With Multiple Locations / Wireless Points?

Feb 11, 2011

setting up networks with multiple locations and multiple wireless points.For example: My sisters' home has here modem in her main computer room, it has a Belkin router hooked to the modem. Then a line goes from there to my nephew's room where I tried to expand their network by adding another router. I really just wanted an access point, but they don't seem to sell these as much as they used to. Anyway, I had it working, but it was two different networks, NETWORK1 and NETWORK2. So they had to swap networks when moving around the house. what would be the best hardware setup to provide both sides of the house with some Hardwired access as well as wifi access? Right now, we have two routers, a DIR615 (or something like that) and a Cisco E1000, and again hardwire going from the main computer room to my nephew's room.Also, in my house, I have lots of stuff... I have an Actiontec Router from FIOS, feeding a small hub as well as a switch in my main room. Which then feeds a Ps3, Wii, laptop, Denon reciever, and Access Point... and also feeds my Apple TimeCapsule, which also feeds my printer. My wireless devices range from cameras, iphones/ipads, and a wifi unit (I forget what it's called, but it connects my DVR wirelessly to my network, and the DVR itself doesn't have wifi).

my question about my setup is, should everything be on one network... as in let the ActionTec handle most of the duties and use switchers and accesspoints to extend the network. Should everything be on the same wireless network and channels? Like if I used my access point to extend, do I want the same settings as my main wireless router, and would that be the same for the Apple Airport Extreme?Also, does having all these wireless networks going create any kind of hinderance on my performance. For example, the PS3 has some sort of wifi in it... it produces a SSID, but I never connect to it. Should I make sure that's off? And in my main room, should I go with just the AirPort extreme over using it and the Wireless Access point.

Home Network :: Multiple Router Networking Versus Adding A Switch?

Apr 22, 2011

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?

Home Network :: Belkin F5D8635-4v1 - Access Multiple Servers From One Dynamic IP Address

Jan 23, 2012

I am working with MS Windows 2008 R2 and a Belkin F5D8635-4v1 router.

I have already set up a dynamic IP address which points to my router at home. In my home network I have multiple PC's that I would like to access from the internet. I would like to achieve this without needing to change my port forwarding rules on my router each time...

My thoughts are that I use a single dynamic IP address pointed to my router. My router then forwards to a server with some sort of software that can then forward to the correct PC based on the host name.

So I have 3 domains set up all pointing to the router's IP address:

dest1.domain.com -> 41.xxx.xxx.45
dest2.domain.com -> 41.xxx.xxx.45
dest3.domain.com -> 41.xxx.xxx.45

The router is not smart enough to redirect by host name, so it will just forward everything to The server based at must then have software to now redetermine the target based on the host name. The rules would be set up as follows:

dest1.domain.com ->
dest2.domain.com ->
dest3.domain.com ->

Home Network :: How To Use Two Routers At Home

May 17, 2011

I wanted to know how to connect two routers together and make them both where I could connect to the internet with them. First off, here is my setup. I have a main router, named "Main" and another router named "dd-wrt". I have the dd-wrt firmware on that one. From the Main router, I have a 50 ft cord running through my house, to my room, which consists of a switch and a desktop. I read that you had to put the second router in client mode in order to do this. What do I need to do in order to have it setup where I have two visible wireless connections on my laptops, and I can connect to either one of them through wireless or Ethernet and get internet access?

Getting Multiple Routers And All PCs On Same Network?

Jul 6, 2012

I want the following configuration:

- 1 Master router with no PC's connected (only the slave routers will connect to it)

- 2 Slave routers each connected to master router Each slave router will have multiple PC's connected via ethernet and/or wireless

I have been able to set this up with all PC's having an internet connection. BUT I need all the PC's to see each other on a single network. I can see all the PC's on a single slave router but I can't see the PC's on slave 1 from slave 2 or vice versa. I have been using the WAN inputs on both slave routers. All 3 routers are Netgear WRN3500L.

Using Multiple Routers Without Significantly Reducing Network Speed

Aug 23, 2011

I recently got a new modem/router device from my ISP and its wifi is fairly weak (no external antennas) especially in my basement. Since wifi is no longer an option and I only have one ethernet connection to my basement I was thinking of using my old router to distribute the one ethernet connection to multiple devices. Connecting my one ethernet connection to the old router, and its port#1 to my PC in the basement works without any meddling, but the speed has taken a significant hit. Before the second router I was getting ~30-40Mbps from my ISP. With the second router it is reduced to ~10-20Mbps. Both routers I assume are capable of at least 100Mbps (probably even 1Gbps?). The older router is a Linksys WRT54G which can do 54Mbps wirelessly so I assume it can exceed 10-20 wired.I tried giving the second router a static IP with DHCP off, but it did not seem to make a difference. I don't know if I set it up correctly, however. The modem/router uses 192.168.0.xxx while the second uses 192. 168. 1.xxx so I do not think there is any conflicts in the DHCP.

Home Network :: How To Set 2 Routers For One ISP

Jun 30, 2011

I needed to set my router's firewall from medium to low. I was ecstatic about this until I came across another problem. I noticed that when I connected my ps3 (wired) to my Motorola modem it showed that I was on a NAT3 connection.Explanation of NAT types for PS3

Type 1 - Connected directly to the internet (no router/firewall). Should have no issues.

Type 2 - Connected through a router properly. Should have no issues.

Type 3 - Connected through a router without open ports or DMZ setup for PS3. Everything should function properly, but you may have connection, voice chat or other issues

I tried forwarding my ports for the PS3 to no avail. I also read about DMZ/IP passthrough and that didn't work either. Thinking that it had something to do with my ISP again, I called them up only to speak to a complete asshole saying I was too stupid to understand anything I was trying to do. He said I should bridge my MOTOROLA modem, but with bridging I lose WiFi don't I? I haven't tried this method yet, but if it works then I would like to have my WiFi still available to me.The Linksys router, which I want to serve as a wireless point is this one. The Linksys router is not connected yet, but after I connect it I would like to use the MOTOROLA modem/router strictly as a modem with nothing else connected to it. Is that the best way to go? Will I experience a bit of drop in speed if my desktop and my ps3 were connected to my Linksys? I want the wireless to use on my phones and laptops that I own.tl;dr. 2 routers 1 isp. 2nd router to use as wifi and connect desktop and ps3 to it while achieving open ports for gaming and torrent downloads?

Setting Up Home Network With 2 Routers?

Nov 30, 2012

I recently signed up for Centurylink Prism TV and internet, they use a Cisco DDR2200 (modem+wireless router combo) which I've come to realize is only a "g" router, so I purchased a cheap Belkin N150 (which I intend to use as my main router). I've turned the wireless function off on the Cisco and have an ethernet cable running from a LAN port on the Cisco to the internet port on the Belkin.

The issue I'm having is how do I set up the IP addresses/DHCP servers for both routers? By default, the Cisco's IP address is (I know, weird right?) with a DHCP range of - Whereas the Belkin's IP address is . I guess I'm sort of at a loss on how to set this up to optimize my network.

Properly Configure Home Network With Two Routers?

Mar 29, 2013

I have a bit of an unusual networking situation here in my home and need proper configuration, so I stop losing my web connection on a daily basis.The reason I'm forced to have the 2nd router is that my wife telecommutes and the 1st (primary router) is provided by her company. For whatever reasons, her company will not allow the wireless radio in their router to be turned ON - which forces me to add the 2nd wireless router for our 3 computers that require wireless access.

1 - Since the primary router has DHCP enabled, I am assuming that I should Disable DHCP on my wireless router. Am I correct?

2 - What other settings on the wireless router do I need to pay particular attention to in this situation?

Home Network :: Configure Two DSL Routers In A Very Large House?

Sep 17, 2011

In my house I have a BT Business Hub wireless router at one end of my house. I am looking to extend the wireless range of my network into the kitchen at the other end of the house, which is a rather large distance away. The house is 200 years old with large corridors and thick walls. There is absolutely no wireless range from about halfway between the office and kitchen. I initially tried two powerline adapters which did not work. Having spoken with an electrician who carried out a rewire on the house, I have been advised that the two areas are on a separate ring main.I considered using two wireless range extenders, but have been told that the signal is halved for each extender that I use.So, I have had the idea of trying to use two DSL routers at each side of the house. There is a phone point in the office and also in the kitchen, where the second router would plug into. These are both on the same telephone line.
