Netgear WNDR4500 - Adding Wireless Router To Existing Network?
Sep 23, 2012
Added a wireless router to our office here so that people with laptops could get on the net without having to physically plug in. Right now it is ok, but the router is acting as it's own DHCP server instead of our server here assigning out the IP's.
The main gripe I have is I can only login to the router through my phone and not through my computer. How can I achieve this. We have multiple offices that all connect through a VPN. I would like our sys admin to access the router at his location as well.
Do I just turn off DHCP on the router and thats it? The model is Netgear WNDR4500.
I'm considering adding a dedicated Firewall to my network.Here is what my home network currently consists of:
-Comcast Arris TM722 Broadband Modem -Netgear WNDR4500 N900 Gigabit WiFi 450/450 Router -2 x Netgear GS108NA 8 Port Gigabit Switches -1 x Netgear WN2500RP Universal WiFi Range Extender -4 Pc's running Windows 7 Home Premium -Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ -3 x Blu-ray players - Sony & Oppo (2 wired, 1 connected by WiFi) -Sony PS3 (wired) -Onkyo TX-NR905 AVR (wired) -Sony KDL-55HX800 TV (wired) -2 x Vizio E400 Seies Smart TV's (1 wired, 1 connected by WiFi through Netgear WN2500RP Range Extender) -HP Photosmart Printer
All wired connections using Cat6 ethernet cabling.So, I want to setup a Gigabit Firewall between the modem and the router (and just use the router as the wireless access point) but I don't want to take a hit on my bandwidth speed.I was thinking of the Netgear ProSafe FVS318G for this.
I have an existing wireless network using a Cisco/Linksys WRT400N wireless router (which in turn is connected to a cable internet provider). I need to extend my wireless coverage and so purchased a Cisco/Linksys E1000 to act as an additional access point. Purchased from BB, the local 'geek squad' rep instructed me to follow the users guide for the set up. After login into the admin service on my E1000, I followed the 'Advanced Routing' instructions and disabled the 'NAT' option and subsequently enabled the 'Dynamic Routing (RIP)' option. Everything worked like a charm to this point, but now I'm stuck. What steps do I need to follow to allow clients to log onto my wirelss network via the E1000 (secondary access point)? I've established WEP security keys on the WRT400N (primary access point) and want to use the same network security parameters on the E1000.
Add wireless conection that can't see network. I have an existing working hard wired network. I want to add a wireless connection that has access to the internet, but not to the other devices on the original network.
I have a Airnet 1600 Series that I want to add as another repeater to our 1200 series 802.11g network. We already have 2 AP's running fine as Repeater and BR, I just need to a this 1600 AP to the existing wirelss. Everytime I try to change the 1600ap as a repeater, I get the below error.
cannot set role in radio network to when another radio is set to one of the above roles
I have time warner internet service and just upgraded my service to their extreme internet. In doing so I had to change my modem to a docis 3.0 modem; the motorola sbg6580. Its a modem that has a router and wifi built in but its really bad and not nearly as good as my net-gear router.
My ISP comes in via phone line to modem then to wireless router.I want to run 200' direct burial line to WAP so that I can access wireless internet at the far point. I have modem and wireless router. what do I need to do the create the distant wireless access?
My wife has a home office with her office computer connected to our modem via a cisco router. Our home computer is connected via this router as well. I want to add a wireless router (netgear) so I can use my laptop anywhere in the house.
Here's the deal. My internet provider provided me with a shitty router with a lot of settings locked. I can't change DHCP settings or add custom static IP addresses. This sucks. The wireless function on it sucks also.I added an extra router to the network so I have good Wifi in my living room. I turned off the NAT, firewall and DHCP on that one, so it's a simple switch with a wireless access point now.Now here's the deal. The DHCP server of the provider's router hands out IP's from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.253 (192.168.2.254 is the router's own IP address).I gave the added switch/access point the IP address 192.168.1.1 in its own settings. The original router doesn't 'see' the switch now anymore because it's out of the DHCP's range. When I gave it an IP address within the DHCP's IP range, I got all kinds of conflicts (as expected).
I guess this is a solution since it works, but I'm open to other suggestions since it doesn't seem to be the best way of doing things. Besides, I can't access the access point's web interface anymore since it doesn't have an IP address within the network now. It isn't important because I don't need to change any settings anymore, but still.I'm going to add a second wireless router to replace the built-in wireless function of the provider's router. For some reason it sees its own wireless network as a separate network or something. When I roam from the new access point wifi to the provider router's wifi, everything gets confused because it tries to give the laptop a new IP address.
I have an existing Ethernet 100meg LAN and I want to add a wireless capability. I have looked at some products and it is confusing. Range extenders for about 40-50 UK GBP (equiv $65 US). Eg Netgear WN3000RP or WN2000RPT. But they mention extending the range of an existing wireless network?
I have an E1000 router and recently moved to a basement apartment where the only internet access comes from a single Ethernet cable running out of a router upstairs. I can connect to that network (it is family) but ideally I would like to connect my router and create a second network so that I can connect my printer and other devices independently of the upstairs network.
I know that N operates on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, whereas AC operates only on 5Ghz. Yet many AC routers advertise as operating on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. So what happens when you connect to an AC access point on 2.4Ghz? Does that operate using 802.11n?
What happens when you try to connect to an 802.11ac access point using an 802.11n client on 5Ghz? Is this possible, or are legacy connections only possible at 2.4Ghz?
I have a Netgear WNDR4500 (802.11n, dual band) currently that I am very happy with. I figure I will eventually switch over to AC. I'm trying to determine if I would be better off simply replacing the N unit with an AC unit, or running both (perhaps WNDR4500 to handle 2.4Ghz clients, AC access point to handle 5Ghz clients, or similar).
I have a working 3800 router which runs on bgp pretty well. Existing setup has 2 serial ports for the bgp and 1 gigabit port for the LAN.Now, i want to add another 3800 as a standby router making it clustered - ACTIVE/STANDBY via hsrp protocol.
1.) What are the implications in adding another 3800. Do i need to reconfigure the ip addresses on my serial? or just the LAN
2.) Are there any additional requirements like firmware versions etc?
Have netgear wireless internet router from ISP and both pc and laptop have wireless internet access but are not networked together. Don't need to network the two but wish to add wireless printer so can print from each computer. Have ethernet cable connecting wireless printer to router. Will computers now communicate (seperately) with the printer for software installation and subsequent printing use?
I currently have a wired network which starts with a cable router downstairs which is a virgin media netgear box with firewall and DHCP turned on. I have a NAS server and a smart tv which run off ethernet connections to this router.then have a cable run upstairs to a TPlink gigabit switch which is connected to a PC and a printer (in my study). All this works just fine, no configuration needed.I have a TPlink wireless router, a TL-WR743ND. I want to use this to connect to the switch upstairs (not downstairs - my stone walls limit any wireless access point) to provide wireless network coverage for my house.So I figured I should configure it with a dynamic IP address (ie it gets it from the netgear DHCP), turn off the TPLink's DHCP and firewall, and then any wireless devices attached to the TPLink by wireless should have access to printer and NAS
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?
Moblie WLAN range 192.168.1.0/24.Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1 - Firewall..Next available range to add more addresses are 192.168.11.0/24..Current range is having IP address issues..I have seen a feature in 4402 controller that I can assigne second address range to exisgint SSID Mobile.What should I set the default gateway for 192.168.11.0/24 range?How can I point all mobile users traffic to the firewall as default gateway without creating additional interface on the firewall?I really do not want to create another vlan and interface in the network to just add another 255 addresses if tehre is any option?
I am trying to add a new computer to my wireless statione access list but have not been successful. I got the ip address of the computer i was trying to add, my issue is how to add it to the list. i tried adding the details and filling in the device name and MAC address but kept getting the error message "invalid MAC address.please enter again.
We currently have out T1 attached to a 5505. We have IPsec site to site tunnels that also terminate on the outside interface of the 5505.
We are getting rid of the T1 and bringing in a manged MPLS circuit which will run off of a 1841 ISR. I would like the 5505 to pretty much work as is with little change. Whats the easiest way to accomplish this? Of course the MPLS will come with new external IP.
Current Design ---> T1<------>[asa5505]<------->[LAN] New design---------> Mpls<-------><------>[asa 5505]<------->[LAN]
1. Whats the easiest way to drop in the 1841 without having to change all my ASA acl's.
2. How would I terminate my ipsec site to site tunnels on asa outside interface. Now that the WAN interface is on 1841 and not ASA how would I terminate the other side of tunnel? Can I leave my tunnel end points on ASA or do they now have to terminate on 1841?
3. How would I configue outside interface on ASA to communicate out 1841 MPLS?
I need your input on how to appropriately introduce an N5K with Jumbo enanbled to a prexisting Core Network (Stack of Cisco 3750G Switches) without making any major alteration on the Core configs (everything is happy). The idea is to move two High I/O servers to the N5K during a transitional phase. I already have a fair understanding of what Jumbo-Frames are and what it does. Keep Jumbo-Frames within the N5K ONLY.
- Traffic is Data traffic, not storage/iSCSI - The servers host our ERP applications and MySQL that is accessed heavily by users - N5K to C3750G connectivity is a Port-Channel consisting of 4x1GB ports - The servers are to remain on VLAN 2 (Data VLAN) - The Core Switch is L3 and the boundaries reside here
we have 2xNexus model 7010 (let's call them Nexus1 and Nexus2) connected via VPC to a couple of catalyst 6509 switch.Trunking has been enabled on the port-channel defined on both Nexus allowing some vlans.Below the config applied on both port-channel interfaces on both Nexus which are members of the same VPC number: [code]
supposing I'd need to remove some vlans from that trunk (e.g. vlan 100,200 and 300) using command "switchport trunk allowed vlan remove 100,200,300" and that I'll run that command on Nexus at a time (that means there'll be a condition for a short period of time where Nexus1 has removed vlan 100,200 and 300 from the trunk, while Nexus2 is still carrying those 3 vlans on its port-channel which is a VPC member) , could it cause any VPC inconsistency condition suspending VPC interfaces and therefore affecting the service for all remaining Vlans or only Vlan 100, 200 and 300 will be suspended when that condition will be detected?
We have a Cisco 3845 router for Site 2 Site VPN tunnels to external business partners. The IOS is (C3845-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(15)T8.One of our partners is doing a DR test and needs to have us swing the VPN traffic to another peer in a test location temporarily. I plan on adding the test hosts to our existing encryption ACL, but instead of building another crypto map, I was wondering if I can add a secondary peer to the existing one?
I'm trying to connect a latop (Packard Bell - Easy Note) onto a Netgear N300 wireless router (WNR2000v3).I have already connected a separate laptop which is working fine but the Packard Bell (about 6 years old) wont connect, it will detect my wireless network but then asks for a "Network Key".I'm assuming this the same password that I set up when I configured the router but when I enter it I get the following message:The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configeration. This can be entered as 5 or 13ascii characters or 10 or 16 hexadecimal characters".
I have a Netgear WNDR4500 running the stock firmware, acting as a router for my home. I also have 2 routers that are flashed with DD-WRT (Linksys WRT54G and Asus WL-520GU) running as client bridges. The Netgear is 192.168.1.1 and the other 2 client bridges are 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.10.3. The Netgear router is performing DHCP giving addresses from 192.168.10.100 to 192.168.10.254. I have numerous machines connected to the Netgear, wirelessly and wired, and numerous machines wired to each client bridge. All machines have IP addresses that are 192.168.10.100, 192.168.10.101, 192.168.10.102, etc... Everything is working fine, but I have one question: When I access the Netgear router, it shows the client bridges as clients, machines that are wired and wireless to the Netgear router are listed as clients, but the client list does not show any clients that are connected to the client bridges. I assumed that since the router is performing DHCP that all clients would show up.
I need to add two additional 2960S switches to my stack. I saw a diagram that showed how a 4 switch stack can be connected, but I couldn't find much detail on adding a switch to an existing stack (besides master election). The output below shows how the existing stack is connected and its state
SW#sh switch detail Switch/Stack Mac Address : 0011.2222.3333 H/W Current
I will need to break one of the stack rings between SW1 and SW2 in order to connect the new switches. Does it really matter which ring I break to connect the additional switches? Does one ring act as primary? If so, I'd rather not break that ring so this process is transparent as possible. Also, is there any benefit to disabling the stack port vs just disconnecting the cable?
I have a 3750 stack as our core switch. On the core switch I have 2 VLANs. One VLAN is for WAN and one is for LAN. The WAN VLAN has our internet router, and the outside interfaces of two ASA's set up as failover. The LAN VLAN has everything else, including our MPLS router for the remote offices. Execs are cheap and want to increase internet bandwidth by purchasing a local home internet service like COX or Time Warner cable to add to our Business internet service with TelePacific which is a bonded T1 at 3 meg. Execs dont seem to care about SLA's and simply will not spend big dollars to increase the pipe. I was looking at those Mushroom Networks appliances but its too expensive for us also. Any way to add additional low cost bandwidth with out current setup? Maybe prefer to keep important internet traffic to the SLA circuit, and then put low priority traffic to the cheap non SLA cable modem if possible.
