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:
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.
I have a weird problem with my network setup. I have a netgear DG834GT ADSL router which runs fine with my Belkin 51B64C wireless router but when I enable "Use as Access Point" in order for me to see my wireless laptops connected to it the internet performance goes bad, the traffic cuts out momentarily for about 7 seconds at a time, its pretty difficult to surf the net having to wait.The setup is as follows:
as I said above the reason I enable "Use As Access Point" is so I can see the devices in Explorer for file sharing. Is there a way I can use port forwarding on the router to see the devices it would solve the performance problem.
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 have a router TP-Link (without wireless) connected in my modem wich have this subnet : 192.168.0.*, that work fine. But I need a wireless connection too, my wireless router had this ip given by the TP-Link router: 192.168.0.13.
I have a NETGEAR WIRELESS-G ROUTER WGR614 which gain 192.168.0.13 but I need that gives ip's in the same subnet that TP link router. If the person connect to my wi-fi it should receive an ip like 192.168.0.*, I already try to disable the DHCP server in the NETGEAR but it's not working too. How can I do that ?
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 am having a problem setting up an Access Point. Here is my configuration. I have a Comcast Cable Modem that plugs in to a 24 port Netgear Switch. From the switch it plugs into a Linksys N wireless router with an IP of 10.1.10.76. I don't know the linksys model. But it is fairly new. I also have a Netgear WN604 N Access Point that plugs in to the same switch in another location away from the wireless router about 75+ft.
I configured the access point's IP to be 10.1.10.130 with DHCP off and DNS as 10.1.10.1. The cable modems default Gateway is 10.1.10.1 and it handles the dhcp which is provided to the switch were both the wireless router and access point get there IP's. I can't set it up so that the cable modem plugs in to the wireless router first then the switch because of a security system that is setup to the Comcast Cable Modem.
My Goal is to the the same identical SSID and Password for both the Linksys and Access point. I don't think I can set it up as a repeater because it's to far away from the linksys router.
we got a At&T Modem/Router upstairs, and then we got a long ethernet cable running from there to the basement. The problem is that this only allows for one LAN connection at a time (an issue for LAN parties and such). I do have an E2000 Linksys router however and I want to be able to use that as like a switch/access point.I am pretty sure this is possible but I have forgotten all of the steps to do it.The att modem/router is running on 192.168.1.254, and my Linksys which is now directly connected is on 192.168.1.1, so I have a different address in that regards.Do I need to edit my Linksys settings now, or do I have to edit the at&t settings?Also I will be using this for Xbox Live at points so will I need to re-open all those ports up on my Linksys, or at least set the DHCP to the Xbox's static IP to keep my NAT good?
I have a Virgin Media Netgear VMDG480 broadband modem/router. Whilst the Ethernet performance is strong the Wifi signal strength is weak and only provides signal to half of my house. I've seen various comments on other forums that this is a common problem for this device. To overcome this I propose to install a Wireless Access Point at the far end of the house and connect this to the VMDG480 via powerlink. (I already use this powerlink connect to a PC at the far side of the house and this works really well.)
My concerns are:
1. Will the VMDG480 recognise the Wireless Access Point? I've seen some comments that suggest that this may be a problem.
2. Is there any specific type of Wireless Access Point that I should use to ensure compatibility with the VMDG480?
3. Is the use of a Wireless Access Point across powerlink a sensible approach?
4. An alternative approach is to use a Wireless Range Extender. Is this a better approach? If yes should I use a Netgear device to ensure compatibility?
I have tried to set up a wireless access point using an old Netgear DG384G router as the access point. This is connected by wire to a Buffalo WBMR-G54 wireless router.I have switched off DHCP and set a static IP of 184.108.40.206 on the netgear and it is using WPA-PSK security. Buffalo is on channel 6 and on WEP, Netgear channel 11.All was working fine, could connect on laptop, Ipad and iphone all working ok and then suddenly at about 6.00PM the connection became very slow (Last 2 Nights)Tried rebboting router, switched off security and no difference.
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 son is using the above access point on his laptop. He wants to make the connection secure by having a password that you must enter in order to access it. How does he set up this password? Looked at the user manual; see the screens but don't know how to get to the screen.
I´ve recently purchased a Netgear r6300 and a wifi ac bridge (Linksys wumc710) When hooking up my Readynas Pro to the r6300 via the wumc710 I only get transfer rates at max 8MB/s. That´s not very impressive, and even with the bridge located within 10 feet of the router, no walls in between. What am I doing wrong? I´ve set the MTU on the Readynas and the r6300 to 1500.When doing a wired test between the r6300 and the Readynas Pro I can copy a file from the Nas to desktop at approx 80-100MB/s, but with wireless ac via the wumc710 only at 4-8MB/s.
Trying to setup secure net but when I type in the router IP Address, it shows Netgear, Type in printer IP address and it shows Linksys. How can I access my Linksys to make changes? I believe the Netgear shown is Comcast modem...
I have the Netgear wndr4500 router setup as an AP. The wndr4500 has a feature for guest wifi but will not connect to the internet. The main wifi will connect to the internet fine. I'm wondering if I use the WNDR4500 as an AP, the guest features do not work?
Having some problems connecting up my "new" AP My current set-up consists of a Netgear "Virgin Superhub" cable modem/wireless router, a ZyXEL WRE2205 (repeater) in the hall on the first floor, and Ethernet connections through to a number of rooms, including the loft. I can't get wireless access in the loft, and I want to put the AP up there, connected through Ethernet. I want to use the same SSID and security for the AP as on the router and repeater so I can roam around(!) That's possible isn't it?What I've done so far (which hasn't worked) is connected via laptop to AP, set AP into AP mode(!), set the AP to dynamic IP, set the SSID / security the same as the router/repeater, plugged the AP into the Ethernet and tried to connect.
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.
