I bought the DIR 655 to put into our network as the Netopia wireless fails to connect even though we have maximum signal strength. Att advised that buying a third party router would solve this problem.I did manage to almost configure the DIR 655. I would have to connect it to the system to test it[CODE]
I'm trying to find out if it's possible to setup a 3600HGV (VDSL Gateway) as modem only and have a Netgear DGN3500 (ADSL2+) as a wireless access point. I'm aware that both are DSL modems, my reasoning for wanting to have them both hooked up is that
a) the 3600HGV has no Gigabit switch and runs on wireless G
b) the DGN 3500 has a Gigabit switch and does wireless N. So in a nutshell I want the 3600 as simple modem and the 3500 as a wireless N access point with Gigabit switch.
How do I connect and configure my WAP54G wireless access point to my new Cable Modem? I have it connected to the modem but I cannot access it to configure it. It appears to be working but before I got the cable modem I had it connected to a router and it was set-up with a static IP address. With my new ISP, I no longer have a static IP address so I am trying to configure the WAP54G to use DHCP. Trying to access it thru the internet at 192.168.1.245 does not work.
How do I setup Netgear WNR2000v2 wireless router as a wireless access point? I just upgraded to a Netgear WNDR3700 wireless router and I don't wanted the wnr2000 to go waste. So basically as the followings:
The detected problem is the connection between my access point, router, or cable modem and the Internet is broken.The network gateway is accessible, but Windows couldn't receive network traffic from the Internet.All other devices (iPad, Xbox, android phone) have no problem connecting to the Internet.Desktop is the only one experiencing the connection issue.
My laptop died last week and have been using my husbands, which I hate! We had some issues with computer freezing on some webpages or after being on webpages for awhile (like facebook). Yesterday it froze and I could not get it back on. When he got home he did scan disk (which I also did) and got it working after going into safe mode and doing system restore. He said an update had gotten through and messed things up. Anyhow, after he was on it a few hours last night, we lost connection. I figured the crazy weather was the culprit but it has been off all day. Our router is working and connecting but the adapter is not. Also our home phone says there is no line. We have unplugged everything several times, checked to make sure everything is in the right spots, I have even reset the router and rebooted the adapter. I uninstalled and restalled the adapter also. It is now telling me that "the connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the Internet is broken". The only lights I have on the adapter are power, battery, DS and now the US light is blinking. The online and link lights are not on.
I had been using a Linksys Wireless-N Router WRT350N with a Linksys Wireless-N Access Point WAP4400N. The router quit working so I upgraded to a Linksys Wireless-N Router E1550. The problem is, the new router doesn't sync with the old access point. how to setup the Access Point to sync with the new router?
I have have my Dir-655 set up as an access point for awhile and would like to change the wireless access code. I can't seem to figure out how to access the setup menu while it is an access point to do this. How I access the router when it is set up as an access point?
My modem and rotuer have double NAT. I am not the only one in my house so I can't mess with the router a lot, but turning the NAT off in my modem and assigning the new IP to my static IP router, by turning off DHCP in the router. Will make my modem a access point.
I am trying to set up my 3Com wireless Access Point that was given to me. I have searched for software to set it up but can't find any.I have read somehwre that the software doesn't even work on Windows 7 anyway.know the default ip adress of this router or how to get into the config pages to set it up.
I need to setup my laptop for two different wireless configurations,at home i have a wireless network that work fine, however, at work i need to configure TCP/IPv4 by feeding in the required IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway etc. But i have to repeat this everyday in office and at home by removing and feeding in the parameters. Is there anyway that i can have both configurations and the system just automatically finds the right wireless network without changing the parameters. I am using windows 7.
I have an EnGenius AP (EOC-2610) I want to connect to my primary router (WRT310N) to extend my network. how I must setup the WRT310N (and maybe the EnGenius) to make it all work together ?
Is the AP's IP should be static ? ie 192.168.1.2 (next to main router's IP)or should it be static in the the primary's DHCP range ? ie 192.168.1.101 or should it be dynamic the IP given by the primary router ?
We are looking into setting up wireless internet access for the whole complex.
1) We would have around 200 users at max (accounting for people to have more than one device or computer connected. Such as Xbox360 and whatnot). What speeds should we consider from a ISP.?
2) Should we get more than one ISP feed?
3) How many wireless access points should we get? (Ruffly we are looking at 5-6)
4) Where should the WAP's be placed around the complex? Considering the apartments are brick outside and inside regular wood frame/drywall construction type. Also should they be inside or outdoor WAP's.
5)What hardware should be considered? (switches, WAP's, ect...)
I don' know how to setup the LinkSys WRT45G (v2) router properly for the way I want to have things wired. I have Verizon FIOS in basement with MoCA enabled coax line going into a splitter, running lines throughout the house. The main router (Actiontec MI424WR) is on the first floor, east side of house connected by coax and the area I want to put the second access point (LinkSys) is on the second floor, west side of house. So very weak wireless signal where the LinkSys is at. I used a Actiontec Verizon Coaxial Network Adapter to plug into the coax outlet in the 2nd floor room. Then run an ethernet cable from that unit to a older LinkSys router WRT45g (v2). I wanted this router to provide a wireless access point and also a place to plug a Sonos unit into. On the back of the router is the usual RJ-45 port and the 4-port switch. I have the line coming from the moca adapter (source) going into port 1 of the switch, the Sonos 5 plugged into port 2 of the switch. I am able to connect and control the Sonos units about 50% of the time like this, but sometimes nothing can be found. I believe this is because my phone can not connect to the wireless when I am upstairs, anotherwards the LinkSys router is not working right. If I plug the ethernet cable from the MoCA adapter into the RJ-45 interent port (like I think it should be, since it is the source), then nothing works.Also, I do not know if the router is functioning as a wireless access point, I am suspecting it is not.The router still has stock firmware, has DHCP disabled, the security and SSID identical to the primary router.
The WES610N bridge seems to work fine, but I cannot get into the web-based setup. I have tried using it directly through my laptop, as the instructions show, then through an Asus RT-53N as a router. I did have the 610 connected to my laptop's ethernet socket, where it provided internet through the Asus RT-53N wireless router just fine, but when I tried to access the setup, again, it would not work. Next, I tried it through a desktop and Linksys RVS4000, again nothing. I would like to check the firmware and see what else is in the menu.
I have configured my DIR-605L for no security. I want to provide free wireless internet for the guests that come to my house. How do I insure that guests connecting wirelessly to the 605 can access the internet only and can NOT hack into the computers on my internal house network?
At my office we have a wireless modem(D-Link DSL-2750U) and all the clients are connect to it wirelessly with a wireless lan card. at the next floor we have two pc(without wireless lan card) that I want to connect them to this network, I have a switch and a wireless access point(TP-Link TL-WA701ND). my Question is that how can I connect the WAP to Modem? I set the operation mode of WAP to client and add the MAC address of it in the table of wireless modem but the clients cant connect to the network.
I have a 4 year old Linksys WRT54G V8 I'd like to set up as an access point for an Xbox 360 or DirecTV box. I am using a Linksys E3000 as my wrieless router, atm, and was wondering if there was anyway to use the WRT54G as an access point before I go out and buy other network adapters to get these devices connected.
