Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Connecting Two Different Ip Networks?
Jun 6, 2012
We are running our internal network on the 192.168.1.x range.
We have just installed a new control system which is running on a closed 192.168.0.x network (no internet access).
What we need to do is use the WRT54G to connect the 2 networks together so that we can VNC into one of the computers on the control system network so that it can be managed.
I have tried connecting the two networks by plugging the 192.168.0.x network into the WAN/Internet Port on the WRT54G, and setting the "Internet Connection Type" to "Static IP" and setting the "Internet IP Address :" as 192.168.1.200 (the main PC I need to VNC into) but cannot ping any of the other computers..
It constantly disconnecting and wouldn't stay connected for a long period of time, so I tried messing with the settings and it no longer connects to the internet. It tells me that the settings for this router is not compatible for the computer settings. I have reset the router to its factory settings, restarted the computer, restarted the router but nothing changed. I have tried plugging my computer to the router via ethernet cord and typing in 192.168.1.1 in the address field of Internet explorer and nothing comes up. I also forgot the password to the router!
The setup...DSL Modem (provides DHCP) LAN port to 24 Port switch. all hard wired PCs are directly attached to 24 port switch.All hard wired PCs can "see" each other.Linksys WRT54G router WAN port is connected to one of the LAN ports of the 24 port switch providing a separate network for my wireless devices.ALL wireless PCs can "see" each other.Problem is that the wired PCs can not "see" the wireless PCs.The wireless PCs can Ping the wired but not the other way around.What I want to do is share folders between the wired and wireless networks.( I know I can turn the router into an AP on the switches LAN, by disabling DHCP in the router, not using its WAN port and hooking one of its LAN ports to the 24 port switch.....BUT... I use the routers access restrictions to limit my kids internet time and without using the WAN port the router does not keep the date and time)It would be like doing file sharing from the internet to a private LAN but without the security concerns!
I wired it all up correctly, and Continue to get "error 322: check router" upon every attempted install. I did some research and tried releasing and renewing IP amongst restarting all networking devices AND PC's. Peculiar enough, I could connect AND get online wirelessly from a netbook, but neither of my 2 PC's could connect via a wire. I got a defective router, is it possible the ports are malfunctioning? because the lights are on, but 3 or all of the 4 lights are continually on when only 2 ports are plugged in
It is a wired, not wireless connection. The light isn't even coming on for the port it's plugged into. I tried a different cord, a different port, upgrading the firmware, and restarting each device. Nothing has worked so far.
My WRT54G router locks up 100% of the time when attempting to connect connect wirelessly to a Samsung Blue Player (Model number BD-P3600). I can connect to it with a cable no problem, but when I attempt to do so wirelessly and type in the password on the Blue Ray player, it attempts to connect but the router locks up and all devices connected to it (wired or wirless) lose connectivity
I can't get my Epson Workforce 615 (610 series) All in One Printer to connect to my WRT54G router. I was on the phone with Epson for over an hour and renetered my SSID and security code 4 times. They said it was something about the router not letting it connect. The printer sees the SSID and I put my laptop in the same location as the printer and it has very good signal strength. I even took the printer back and got another one. The router does not have MAC filtering enabled.
Running Win XP (no service pack), WPA personal. Two other computers connect fine. On an old laptop running Win XP the network card sees the router, but when I enter the correct passcode (16 character) I get a message saying the code must be 13 characters. How can a connect this computer without disabling the other two wireless devices running through the router?
I've got a WRT54G v6 that is password protected via WPA2 Personal TKIP+AES, and SSID broadcast enabled. In the Status menu > Local Netork > DHCP Clients Table there is a MAC Address listed that none of my devices have.
I've been having a ton of problems with fixing my connection with my wireless network. A few months ago, I lost connection on my desktop computer and I reconnected... however, it didn't actually connect. When I hovered my cursor over the Wireless Network Connection icon, it just said "Acquiring Network Address" and never connected. I got onto my laptop and did a quick search on the problem. A few wrong moves later, and I couldn't even find my wireless network.
Despite all of my attempts at creating a connection, I still have no internet. I've even tried plugging my computer into my WRT54G router via cable, and still no connection. It's not the router that's the problem, though, as my two other computers and xbox have perfect internet connection.
I use Windows XP, I use a WRT54G router, I have Mediacom high speed internet, and that's about all I know.
I have a linksys router WRT54G connected to a modem supplied to me by Time Warner Cable. Just last night, for some reason my internet stopped working. After calling Time Warner Cable internet support, I found out that the modem is working. If I connect my laptop (Dell model which is running on Windows 7) directly via cable to the modem, I can connect to the internet. BUT if i connect my modem to the router, and then connect my laptop via cable or wireless to the router, I can't connect to the internet. When I open up my network window on the computer, I see that my laptop is connected to the router and the router is connected to the internet but I can't connect to the internet. I tried calling linksys customer service and my insurance ran out so yea ... On the laptop, i ran a troubleshooting program and it gave me an error stating that it failed to connect to the DNS server and I should contact the internet provider. Time Warner Cable told me that if connected to the modem directly, I could access the internet indicating that there's an error in the router.
I have a linksys system WRT54G at home. I had no problems with the Linksys router until about a month ago when I decided to make it a secure network. I run three computers of the wireless router (1 desktp and 2 laptops) Since making the wireless network secure I can not connect with my business laptop IBM Thinkpad X40, but thother e computers work just fine.
In my home, I have broadband internet connection, which is Time Warner Cable. I also have an Apple Airport Extreme that shares my internet throughout all of my computers. My current set up runs perfectly but the problem is, I have other devices in my home that require a WEP security key. My Airport Extreme is running on WPA but I don't want to lower it's security to WEP just for those devices. What I'm trying to do is create another separate network which has a WEP security key (Linksys WRT54G). So ultimately, I would like to set up two networks, one is the Airport Extreme and the other Linksys, which both run under the same WAN address provided by Time Warner Cable.
I had connected my WRT54G to my wireless router by disableing the DHCP on WRT54G. It worked great until recently. Now I upgraded my linksys box to the latest and greatest AC1750. Iwant to use complete features of AC1750 router. So to do this, How do I connect Verizon Model(its modem+wireless router) to this Router and have AC1750 drive everything.
im moving into an apartment that provides internet via a wireless hotspot (is PW protected and has WPA2 protection). I would like to be able to connect a router to it and then wire my printer, Media server and Roku device to my router.im guessing I will have to somehow bridge my router to the wireless hotspot. I would like the ability to then broadcast my own wireless network from my router, and have my mobile devices connect only to my router, which is in turn connected to the internet via the hotspot.can use the mfg firmware or be open source firmware, doesnt matter to me.I currently have a Netgear WNDR3700 and a spare WRT54G with DDWRT.
I am having trouble connecting my device to certain WiFi networks. We work with hotels and we have a handful of devices that are just not able to connect to their network. Te device works fine in my office. When I get to the Setup page and do a site survey, it'll get to 100% and then display a "page can't be found" as oppose to showing me that it has been connected. We had the MAC address cleared in their network and still no luck. Firmware has also been updated.
I am currently accessing the internet on my home lan with a Linksys wrt54g dd-wrt in bridged client mode (small town wifi to T1 network) with a static IP, but plan to add an additional WildBlue 12mbps satellite connection. What I’d like to do is load share between the two connections with a RV042 dual wan router…. The satellite modem connection to one of the WAN ports and configuring the RV042 as my DHCP server is not a problem, but how I should configure my wrt54g to the dual wan router for load sharing?I suspect a IT professional might understand this intuitively, but I am unsure how to pass through my public address from the Linksys to the RV042 WAN port.
I have a 192.168.1.xxx network connected to Verizon FIOS via Actiontec MOCA / router. I also have a 192.168.15.xxx network connected to Comcast via Motorola VT2442 router (used for Vonage) and a Motorola SB6121 cable modem.
Each network has it's own gigabit switch connected to each router. The two networks are physically separated but switches and routers are physically side by side.
What is the best configuration to allow devices on 192.168.1.xxx network to communicate with devices on the 192.168.15.xxx network (share printers, NAS, etc), but still have each network served by it's respective ISP, and each device still get it's dhcp, dns, gateway, etc from each respective router?
In the house I am using a WRT54G as the main router connected to the ISP. I have run a Cat5E wire from the house to the shop 110 feet away and connected a WRT54GS to the Cat5E (a LAN Port). I turned off DHCP and assigned it a static IP from the House WRT54G. Local wired connections work great, problem is it will not offer up a wireless IP address to wireless clients.I wired up a cross over cable and actually plugged it into the WAN port, it actually picked up and offered wirelessly the House IP address range, however, could not get to the internet. Why I can't wire to WRT54G and a GS together and expect a wireless connection at the shop site?
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've found that Android devices (smartphones for sure, and perhaps other devices, like Windows Vista/XP pc's with some Atheros wi-fi adapters) can't connect to our eduroam network (WPA2 Enterprise) if the Access Points (all from Cisco) also have open SSID's configured in it. Once I protect the open networks with, for instance, WPA-PSK, the Android devices immediatly get connected to the eduroam. Is there any fix that can be applied to the Access Points. Below there's a list fo AP models and IOS version we have running. I may mention that this problem doesn't occur with Access Points from other manufacturers like, for instance, Meru Networks.
In the AP's event log appears the folowing:
"Packet to client 0026.3778.081f reached max retries, removing the client"
The steps to mitigate the problem above were applied, but with no results.
PS: The Android versions may vary with the same symptom.
Device types: AP 1100; AP 1130; AP1140;AP1210;AP1250
I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop that I received on the 25th of June. It is "replacing" a Dell Inspiron 9100 that has gotten to be too slow and bulky for my needs. For support purposes, both laptops are running on Windows 7.Overall, I love my new Inspiron 1764. However, I have noticed seriously degraded connection/signal strength with the wireless card (Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-card) compared to my Inspiron 9100 (Dell Wireless 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI card).
In areas of my house that my 9100 can get full signal strength (5 bars), my new 1764 is getting 2 or fewer bars. This behavior is also not limited to only my house, as I have tested it at my job and in an area less than 10 feet away from the wireless router, I have "Internet connectivity problems".
I tried twice this morning to speak with Dell support. The first person I spoke at least initiated a DellConnect session with me so that they could check some of my settings and such (however, why they went twice into my sharing settings I could not determine since they have absolutely nothing to do with signal strength.)
Unfortunately, I was disconnected from the session when I went to an area that had less signal than right next to my wireless router.I then got back on chat support with Dell and received another technician to speak with. I explained my problem, told them that I was in a DellConnect session with the other technician, and they looked up my support contract.They then told me that my warranty does not cover software issues and referred me to the software department and told me it would be an extra charge. I told them that I did not believe it to be a software issue in any way, shape, or form. They told me that it must be a setting issue. I have since spent several hours scouring the internet forums on Dell and other websites checking people who have had similar issues. Some of their issues were admittedly from software settings, but I have still yet to find anything that indicates to me that I have an incorrect software setting.
As of this writing, I am standing in my kitchen, typing on my Inspiron 9100 with a full 5 bars, while my Inspiron 1764 sits next to me with a measly 2 bars, and I am literally standing 7 feet above the room that houses my Linksys WRTU54G-TM router.Personally, I suspect a faulty wireless card, but how do I convince Dell to hear my case and replace it rather than trying to bilk me for unneeded software support?
my goal is to share my cable modem signal over my two story house using two wireless routers. The delima is that the routers don't support wireless bridging and if they did, the signal is too weak to make it worth while.
The remedy I came up with... buy a pair of powerline network adapters and connect one router to the other so I could have a good signal upstairs and then a good signal downstairs.
Downstairs, I have the cable modem connected to the Linksys WRT54G router, which has a line out to my blu ray player, wirelessly feeds a PC downstairs and then has a cable run to the powerline adapter.
Upstairs, I have a cat5 connecting the powerline adapter (which was tested and works with laptop) to the data input port on my second wireless router, the netgear wndr3400.
I can't get the netgear upstairs to pull an IP address from the linksys router downstairs over the powerline network.
We have an E4200, currently with wireless disabled, on a Windows 2003 based domain. We have a Static IP from our ISP.We want to install some wireless & wired security cameras (IP-based) so that we can view them from our iphones or droids outside the network. The software for these cameras will reside on a computer that is not currently on the network, but needs to use the same Internet connection as the current domain. We basically want to separate these cameras & computer from the current network, use same Internet connection (& Static IP), and enable wireless on the E4200 for the cameras only.
I've gone through a couple modems, only possible reason I can think this is happening, but I don't know for sure if it could be a factor. Anyway, it seems my router is running two... networks? I've reset my router, set up my wireless network, configure the SSID name, password lock it, but there still appears to be a "Linksys" network running with no password. I'm afraid it's being used by someone else, seeing as it's free wifi. I've reset my router a couple times and set up my wifi and this linksys still appears to be running. The reason why I feel it's mine is because one night our net went out and when my brother attempted to log onto the linksys, its net wasn't working either. When our net came back up, the linksys was running with working net once more. It seems like too much coincidence to not be true. I'm really not sure what is causing this and I've never experienced this before.
I'm looking to upgrade my WRT54G as I have had NO luck in getting my Galaxy Tab to connect through it so far (can connect and get an IP address but can't get out to the web) and have had intermittent problems with my Blu-ray lately. I am looking for something with the best affordable range, live 3 floors down from the current one and get about 3/4 signal strength so there's not much interference it seems. I watch a lot of online content through Hulu, Netflix, and LMB games and share with 2 other people.I am looking at the E series, probably the E1200, 1500 or 1550 as they seem to meet my needs. Any users have any advice about the ease of install and use of either of these? Or would it be better to get a gateway as we are considering going from DSL to U-verse service, twice the speed for $2/month more
I am having a setup problem with the RE1000. When I plug it in, my laptop is able to see it, and I'm able to access it and attempt to set it up. However, once I tell it how to connect to my main wireless router, and it attempts to log onto my wireless network, the RE1000 disappears from my list of networks. My blu-ray player also cannot see it.
I have a home office with a network served by a Linksys BEFSR41 wired router. It includes a laptop and HP printer.. This router also connects to my cable modem for internet access. I also have a second wireless linksys E1000 router hardwired to the home office router. It serves my wifes's laptop in the kitchen and also a ROKU in the den. I tried using the wireless router for the whole house, but the signal was too weak and unreliable. With the current layout, I get a strong signal thoughout the house and my home office uses the wired router.. My problem is that I can't access the printer in my home office.
