Routers / Switches :: Wireless And Wired Connection For The Same Set Of PCs?
Feb 1, 2012
I have 3 PCs (win7-64) connected to a wired gigabit network to achieve fast transfer of large files. Separately, at a distance, I have a modem-router to access the Internet. Internet access for the 3 PCs is achieved with each PC connected wireless to the latter modem router. The 2 networks are running OK and PCs can connect each other on both networks. Question: How can I know and achieve that the gigabit network is used for file transfers and not the slower wireless network? How should configure both routers and PCs to achieve this? I don't need the wireless setup to be a network, just to provide wireless access for each PC and that's it. I used to have the gigabit LAN configured with a Dlink DAP1522 bridge that created a single wireless connection between this wired LAn and the modem-router but it stopped working and I'm pretty done with it.
I'm trying to upgrade my existing Netgear wired router to a Netgear N600 wireless router. I was really hoping just to replug in everything and go. But because the wired router is setup for 192.168.1.1 when I plug in the wireless router it thinks nothing is plugged in because it too wants to use that IP address. How do I disable the wired settings
I have a Netgear WGR164v9 wireless router connected to internet directly by public IP and this router performing DHCP for wireless LAN ip subnet is 192.168.1.x. A server (DNS,DHCP & RRAS with NAT) connected with this router by ip 192.168.1.6 which has another subnet 192.168.10.x for LAN PCs. In this situation everything is fine like internet browsing. The only problem is wireless PCs (192.168.1.x) can't connect with wired LAN PCs (192.168.10.x). The router ip is 192.168.1.1. How can I configure to connect those two subnet's PCs?
Can I have a wireless access point connected, by wire, to say 2 PCs and a wireless router connected to the internet (+ other PCs) and the link between the access point and router is wireless (i.e. not wired)
2 routers in series, is one more secure. I recently asked about setting up two routers in series as routers, one wireless one not. It was my understanding that the computers on the second router would not be visible to computers on the first router, the wireless one. My assumption was that this would make it more difficult for someone who got access to the wireless router to also access those computers on the second router.
I have xfinity internet with a comcast rented modem connected to a personally owned belkin router. I can successfully connect to the internet directly from the modem or if I connect to the modem to the router and then to my computer via ethernet cable. I cannot for the life of me connect wirelessly with any devices. The router previously worked when it was hooked up to comcast internet, but it was moden->router->my router. When I connect wirelessly on my Windows 7 laptop, it says I connect and that there is internet access. But when I try to load a page it takes me direclty to this website: url.. Comcast says that it is my router that needs configuring properly with xfinity and wants to charge me $39 to provide this wonderful service.
Router: Belkin Model F6D4230-4 v1 with firmware F6D4230-4_WW_1.00.03
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.
I've got a PC(windows 7) connected to a wired router(not wifi), and I also have a laptop that shares the internet with the PC using wifi. A wired printer is connected to the PC. Is it possible for me to share files and print using laptop? (Wifi Connected to a Wired Internet connection)
Adding ports to my Fairpoint provided Westell 7500 Rev D DLS modem router which has only 4 RJ45 ports. Bought a Linksys SE2500 gigabit smart switch but it doesn't assign IP or pass on router assigned IPs. Can't get ASSISTANCE from Fairpoint [successor to Verizon] configuring router or any advice on other ways to get more wired devices on LAN.For speed in backups I'd like 3 devices to be able to communicate at giabit speed Want to have an NAS and 2 Win7 Ultimate computers on smart switch, 3 other wired devices [WinXP, AT&T Cell tower, & DirectTV whole house SWM interface] and wireless on the router. 1. Are Fairpoint specs for DSL published so I could get another DSL modem router instead of the Westell or is it better to configure Westell as a router only and use a new to be acquired router with or without the existing or a new gigabit switch. I have a DI-624 from the pre-DSL Hughesnet satellite days.2. Are there less smart switches which would work better and let router assign the IPs?3. If this is too complex for me, can you recommend a remote access consultant to walk me through this for a fee?4. I'm 82, have been in computing since 1960, mainly in on-line end user environment mbut don't know the bridging, PPP PPoE differences, and implementation or configuration details of current hard and software except as a user.
I am using the android phone with software IP WEBCAM and it works fine to view video withiin the same wireless network for android phones and computers.I have to just type[URL] I want to use it to in my home ( Wireless Connection 1 )on my laptop to see the video of my office( Wireless Connection 2 ) using android phone, but the problem here is it says port forwarding should be enabled to wireless d-link 600 router and then the http:<ip address>:<port> should be accessed?
I have a wireless router that was named and all the wireless equipment (laptop, ipod, phones) was connecting easily with no problems. Everything is saying "unable to connect". I have no clue what she did but she said her laptop asked her for the 8 number code from the router and she entered it.

Belkin N750 Router - wired connection can not access Internet. I've tried direct to modem and have no problem, have tried old router, no problem, but if I shut down desktop completely (Win7) and restart, I get no connection. Uninstalling the NIC (Intel 82579V Giga) and restarting, then I get connection again. However, if I start in safe mode with networking, I have no problems at all. I've disabled my firewall to no avail.
When I try to set up my Belkin mondem router I can only get local connection only as soon as i remove the wired setup cable. The routor itself is connect to the internet and other laptops can connect when given the password. I tried to set it up on a different laptop and got the same result. I have reset the factory setting and tried again with the same result I connect to the routor but not the internet. If I reconnect my talktlalk routor there is no problem.
I have recently changed my router from Netgear to TalkTalk because of an intermittent signal, no problem with my desktop ethernet or laptop wireless or tablet but I keep loosing connection with my WII internet connection for Netflix.
It is set to dummy mode so it should just pass through to the WRTG54S router which handles the DHCP.2) I have 6 computers sucking the internet off of the router. One is wireless.3) I have been set up for about 6 months this way. 4) I use to drop the DSL connection about twice a day. I would unplug the WRTG54S and plug it back in and everything would reset and work. Then, recently it has gone to about 15 times a dayThen, we have to make a major electrical change in the building, which required us to go to generator power only for 5 days. For 5 days, we never dropped the DSL connection a single time. Power was restored. Generator sent back home. Problem is back. Dropping DSL connection again.5) Hooked up APC battery backup power smoothing device to 3 cpus, WRTG54S, and DSL modem.
I am now using my dell optiplex 755, with windows xp sp3. The first set up was with wireless ,which works fine, but now I am trying to use the ethernet to netgear switch, to comcast modem, from dell desktop, I get error that says,TCP/IP is not enabled for thisconnection.Can not proceed. I have also tried to repair local connection with the Icon at the bottom, it has error that says ,local area connection.This connection has limited or no connectivity.do I need a new IP address for the this connection? I have tried to run ethernet from modem to computer ( to by pass the switch
We are in a hotel that allows us to use their router with a Hawking 300N expander. We seem to lose connection each time their router gets a new IP address. The router seems to lose connection frequently. Is there a setting in the expander that will allow the expander to "follow" the DHCP address of the router without having to take it down and go thru the setup each time.
My ISP tested my connection and told me my signal is very weak. I can no longer play games online because I lag tremendously. I can't steam videos while someone else is using the internet either. Also I can't access it on wireless devices unless I am in view of the router. I'm not sure what caused my connection to suck butI have the essential plan from cox.com. When I test my connection on speedtest.com I average 75ms/ping, 3.25mbps/dwnld spd, and
I have a 2nd pc that i want to add to my basic home network. I have installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit yet still have issues connecting to my router. There is basic activity but nothing on the internet I have tried to use command line netsh to force DHCP on it says it is but I am getting a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 when everything else is 255.255.255.0 not sure if this matters as there are only 4 devices on the network.
For the past few months my internet connection will randomly drop for about 5-10 seconds when someone else connects to the network. I am using a wired Ethernet connection and as said when someone connects either via WiFi or also through a wired connection, the internet for me will drop as soon as the device is connected, and then randomly every 20 minutes or so thereafter. I should also mention that rarely the connection will just drop for again, 5-10 seconds even when nobody else is connected.I tried my computer at someone else's house using their router and it worked fine, no disconnects at all.
This is the situation in our Lab.We have one telephone line with broadband connection and a system which is connected to a modem to use this broadband facility. Recently we have taken two static IPs over this connection for a project work.Now what I want to know is, how to configure these static IPs, so that I can connect two systems (each one to one static IP) to use these static IPs and continue to access the internet in the 3rd (already present) system.
I have a big 2 floor house .I would like to use 3G connection using USB type of modems,like vodaphone or MTS. which router to be used so that I can get good connectivity on both floors. NOTE- I do not want to use cabled internet coonections.
My problem is I can not connect to any ftp server or any database server using my home internet connection. But i can connect to the same servers using my work internet or even using my 3G mobile connection.I tried to contact with my service providers with no luck.I am using a Zyxel wireless router. Is there any settings in my router which stops me to connect those servers.
