Routers / Switches :: How To Get PCs In Outside Network
Nov 11, 2011
I have 2 PC's connected to router.The router is connected to internet.The question is how to get the PC's in the outside network into router?if I connect 1 PC directly to internet I can find and share files with my friend pc ( my computer> network)but when I connect Router in between I cant find any PC's(I find only my PC's) in network.
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.
Me and my friend hucked up a net wort from our houses (bout 50 feet away) he is brodcasting wirelessly, and my desktop is not wireless so i used a laptop to conect to his and conected a hard line to my router and conected it to my pc and bridged the conections.my router starting ip was fixed to 192.168.2.1 and his is set to 192.168.1.1 so itll conect and i turned off my dhcp ip (his is on). my wireless on the router is off. It worked and i have acess to the network and the internet but every once in a wile i get DCed with a windows error saying my ip for my pc is the same as another computer on the networkIs there a way to fix this? did I hook them up right cuse I am not that good a networking
I have a D-Link DIR -655 wireless router connected to my Time Warner Cable modem upstairs. Downstairs I have a PS3, Wii, Logitech Revue and a HP laptop. I get low signal strength downstairs(many walls) and would like to run an Ethernet cable downstairs to my devices. What hardware do I need downstairs to hard wire those devices? Not sure if router or switch and what kind. Do I need to make any changes to my existing D-Link wireless router? I want to keep the wireless available for cell phones and the HP laptop.
A friend was over with his lap top, since then I'm getting "sam's pc network",instead of my network, I can't seem to disable it, nor can the other devices in the house connect to it, the default is Sam's....
I am currently playing Football manager 2011 with a friend via a network game. The game will work perfectly if I connect my Laptop to the modem directly and bypass the Wireless. However if I try to play the game while connected to the wireless then my friend is unable to connect to the game. This is becoming an issue as for me to be able to play the game I have to turn the wireless off which is getting on the nerves of other family members
I have followed directions and forwarded the two ports to the local machine. I looked in the router setup to find my current public ip address from Comcast say its 188.8.131.52. If I am on the same network as the machine that is receiving the port forwards, and I type http:// 184.108.40.206 in a browser, the forwarding works fine.If I am external/not on the same network, typing http:// 220.127.116.11 in a browser times out. I have tried http:// 18.104.22.168:9000 too (9000 is the port I need forwarded) and that doesn work either.But, I do have remote management enabled for the router and if I am external/not on the same network and I enter http:// 22.214.171.124:8080 in a browser, I get the router login screen and can enter my user name and password and login to the router just fine.
I am wondering what the cable wires or sockets on the back of this router are for? could it be you can connect through the cable tv network the sockets fit perfectly in the back of the router thats a strange coinsidence dont you think?
I have a Buffalo NAS with IP address 192.168.1.30 linked to my router, which has IP address 192.168.2.1. Both have the same subnet mask: 255.255.255.0.DHCP on the router assigns IP's to my computers on the network (192.168.1.xxx). How do I access my NAS?
I want to block everyone from seeing each other on the LAN. So when someone goes to network neighborhood they can't see no one else on EXCEPT for the pritner or so. I want to do this using a Cisco 1841 router. How can I do this?
i have 3 home computers using the same wireless router. 2 of them have no problems detecting and accessing internet. one computer can access at times, but many times cannot detect network. i have tried restarting my modem, the router, my computer etc. at times, it works, at times it doesn't. at times, it is ok, at other times it is not.
I am able to access the internet. I am running Windows 7 on my laptop and have a wired connection between it and my intergrated router. The internet works fine, but it seems to think that I am not connected to the network. I'm not certain it realized that I even had a network, since when I try to activate media sharing it just gets stuck at "Identifying Network". The whole purpose of this is to be able to play music from my computer on my Xbox 360, alternative solutions for this goal would be good too.
My itty bitty manual just shows on how to hook up my router via cable modem...nothing on how to secure it. I go into setup of the router and see where one can add info but am at a loss what to enter. I tried, merely by guessing, applied the info, and screwed up my networking. I couldn't even get into my router to revert back, cause i couldn't get on line...finally i reset manually my router and all is well again, except when i see a list of nearby network users, mine is the only one that says unsecured.
I have one router (A) (192.168.0.xxx) that serves as internet gateway. Another two routers (B & C) (192.168.1.xxx & 192.168.2.xxx) that serves two sub-net/network, are connected to this router (A). How can I set it up so that PCs in sub-net C are able to print to network printers in sub-net B? Pls note that I do not have full control over router A.
I have 2 network adapter on my PC , but i cant use this 2 internet connection at a time, these connections are taken from main router. is it possible to increase my internet speed ? . i can use each connection seperatly, if one connection remove another will work,
Same problem ' network cable unplugged' even if it is physically connected. I have sony vaio pczim series with win 2000 xp home edition with a broadband (cpe adsl2+ type) connection. While everything working fine for past two years, suddenly after a thunderstorm night, I noticed the network connection failure with the message. I checked the router, cable and the same are working fine with other hp laptop. Even the vaio is running with the same router while usb port is used and even the wireless and bluetooth are fine, but network with ethernet cable connection does not.
I bought a new router last night in an attempt to fix some internet issues. I replaced my old router (an N150 lynksis) with the one I bought (an N300 netgear) and after getting all the wires connected, my computer wouldn't connect to the internet and it wouldnt recognize the router as anything other than "Unidentified Network". I've tried reseting and power cycling the modem, shuting down the computer, even some random tips from the internet but nothing seems to be working.
my modem is working, I have two computers on the router plus my wireless is working.I connected my cable that was going from the modem to the router directly to the computer and it still says "network cable unplugged"sis 900 based PCI fast internet?
I have this LinkSys by Cisco Wireless-N gigabit model# WRT310N router that quit functioning in a weird way. (it has Wi-Fi protected setup on it, not sure if that would effect it, it's disabled) I have a friend in the condo above mine, but i have a Dial-Up internet conn and can afford a good broadband internet conn. a co-worker gave this router to me, saying he didn't need it for his network at home. It was still in original box, unopened, So it was intact. i set it up so i can play Age of Empires 1 (you probably haven't heard of it, it's a single player or Multi-player TCP/IP comp-to-comp game from '96) and i used a gigabit wired conn, he used wireless-N laptop. We played a few games, on the 4th game, it locks up about 12 mins into the game. we try again, the comp not even recognize each other. Knowing a little about networking from watching the IT guys at work, i tried the PING command in cmd.exe in vista, it will ping the router, not the other laptop. same thing on the other laptop pinging my desktop. i unplugged the router, and went to sleep.Next day, i got back from work, called the friend, plugged the router back in, and it work for another 14 mins, no ping. possibilities? the LinkSys website doesn't give answers, so what is it?Further Edit: my Gigabit conn is going through a 3 ft CAT5e cable, and the wireless-N trans rate is set to 130 Mbps.
For some time now, I haven't been able to connect to websites from one.com, from my personal network.I've had full access to all those sites before and the only change I've made myself, is changing the standard internet browser from IE to Firefox.At first I thought the problem was on my desktop Win7 computer (which uses a network cable), but after testing the sites on my macbook, with a wireless connection, and having the same issue.
We recently moved 8 pc's from a room where they each had port on the switch to a room where there is only one port for all of them. I setup a DLINK DIR632 Router in there and they connect thru the one port thru the switch to the gateway which gets them out to the internet.The problems is I need to be able to remote desktop into these 8 PC's and I need them to be able to print to the network printer. I am using a Linksys WRT54G Broadband router as the gateway connecting the switch to the internet. The DLINK's dhcp server is on for the 8 PC's. The Linksys' dhcp server shows the DLINK as IP 192.168.1.19 on the network.I know I have to use advanced routing settings but I'm not sure about how what to make the subnet mask and IP's on both routers. I believe I need to turn off the dhcp server on the DLINK and have the Linksys' dhcp server serve all of the PC's but I'm not sure if thats the best way or if its possible.. I don't want to hack out fix only to find it breaks 3 days later.I used to do this stuff all day long in the 90's but its been a while and to me its like calculus.
