Routers / Switches :: How Many Devices Can Connect To One Router
Feb 12, 2011
I have 3 laptops, 2 tivos, wii, ipad, i touch, etc..... how many items can connect to one router without drops outs? My internet keeps dropping off since my last device connected to my wireless home network and we have to keep hitting the reset button. Do different routers support more devices than others?
A Telindus 1421 SHDSL Router and a Sagem F@st 1500WG wireless adsl router.The question is: Can i connect this two devices directly over the adsl port and share networks on each side of each of the devices?
I have 4 computers on LAN using a router and I cannot see eachother, don't know how to configure the PCs. The router is set on DHCP for LAN, the PCs are using Windows 7 and can connect through the internet the router is providing (4 dells) but don't know how to set the computers to see eachother and to share files.
I try connecting to my Linksys wireless N router's setup but it doesnt even find the "site". I have tried pinging the router and i get no response, i have restarted the router and everything, It has never done this before.
I have an Iball Baton Router. I am not able to connect to it from my PC. However, I am able to connect to the router from my Laptop.I have tried isconnecting and renewing the ip. Can see that ip (192.168.1.102) is issued to my PC and can ping to the same. But, do not get any reply when I ping to the gateway (192.168.1.1 - ip for the router). My OS is Windows 7 64 bit.Let me know if you need any more information
I have a WD, 1TB, external harddrive with a USB connection and would like to know if it is possible to get a USB hub with an ethernet connector to connect into the back of my router. Is it possible to do this? If so, what will I need to do? Will I need to give the external drive a static IP address, then partition it?
I changed my netgear wireless router password and now my laptop will not connect to the router or to the internet. It has no popup to put the new password. I have no problem logging on with my phone...just the laptop.
I have a router connected to my computer for the many laptops and netbooks used in my home. My computer is down for a bit.I have an internet card, but no one else can use their laptops/ netbooks.Can I also connect my router to my laptop for multiple use in the household?
My Netgear WNDR3300 wireless router has stopped working. I was trying to put new firmware on it and it just stopped being able to connect to the internet. I can't connect to the internet through it wired or wirelessly. Wirelessly I can connect to it, but I can't do anything like browse the web. I have tried resetting it to factory defaults and restarting it and my modem many times, and my modem can't be the problem because using my other router everything is fine.
I'm having trouble connecting my 02 dongle to the internet using my router. My router is a TP-LINK MR3420 and my 02 modem device is E1752. I checked to see if the modem is compatible and it says it is. I went through the configuration that was given to me with the router and I tried using you tube but nothing. Do i need to get a static I.P address off my Internet provider? If I plug my 02 USB dongle directly into my computer it works perfectly and I got the router to work using a Ethernet cable and plugging it into the WAN port at the back of the router but I would prefer to let it connect through the 3g port
I have one ADSL router that I have configured Port Forwarding on it, but the internet is very slow. I also have another 3G router and I want to use it for internet because it is much faster, but it cannot do Port Forwarding. How can I connect this two routers in one network such that ADSL router is for Port Forwarding only and 3G router is for internet only?
I want all the computers on my LAN to access via a proxy server in another country. I have a Netgear DG 834N router and would like that to connect to the proxy server rather than having to define it on each browser.
Motorola wr850gp wireless router. The default ip is 192.168.10.1. I attempted to use it as a wireless access point and now it is not working at all. I tried connecting the router LAN port to the computer and 192.168.10.1 pulls up nothing.I tried connecting the modem to the WAN port and the LAN port of the router to the PC, but then I have no internet access at all. I tried resetting the router, still nothingAll lights on the router are green. I don't know what the heck is going on?
my computer will connect wired to internet and can find the wireless connection but wont connect. my wireless icon flashes intermitently and my mobile will work via wifi. do i need a new router this one is a G wireless Modem router Belkin had it for about 4 years?
I have high-speed cable access currently coming into an older D-Link 4-port wired router. I need to buy a new wired and wireless router so I can sync my new Android 4G phone (I'm in an area with bad cell coverage but I can sync with wi-fi). I have a second house about 200 feet from mine and have 3 Cat5E lines running underground in conduit to it so the lady next door and and her two kids can use the internet (I have 40-50mb service for my business use at home). Problem is that my kids have discovered YouTube, streaming video, video chat, etc. and are burning up my bandwidth. I currently have two of the lines to them disconnected so that I can limit their use to one computer at a time. I'm considering having them buy a Wireless Access Point, can they connect it to the standard single Cat5E LAN wire that is coming from my new wired and wireless router when I buy it?
I installed DD-WRT on my router and placed it in bridge mode, configuring it with what I thought was my Androids IP address for the gateway. I tried with the Android IP address identified through cmyip.org, 22.214.171.124, and with the one identified through ipconfig command, 192.168.43.1. Neither address was successful. Also, I am unable to access my router using the IP address that I manually assigned to it.provide some assistance on the process of bridging from an Android to a wired PC through a router, Linksys WRT54G v3,
I have a Netgear N300 Wireless Router (WNR2000), and I am trying to connect the internet through it. The internet light stays amber, and though the router recognizes it, I can not connect to the internet. My computer also doesn't seem to recognize the router at all. Installation CD will not work either.
i have a belkin wireless router F6D4230-4. the "wired" and "router" lights are green but the "wireless", "modem", and "internet" lights won't come on. when they do, its red. the router is connected but won't pick up in any other rooms or on our phones.
I have a "normal" router powering my home wireless network and everything is just fine. However, there are some devices that I want to run exclusively over a VPN, but they do not support VPN applications. I understand that there are some VPN routers available that have the VPN support built-in at the firmware level (Buffalo AirStation WZR-HP-AG300H). This is exactly what I need, but I don't want to run my entire home network through the VPN, only certain devices. So, can I do something as simple as connect my VPN router directly to the "normal" router and effectively run two different wireless networks in the house?Would daisy chaining the routers in this way interfere with the VPN tunneling ability?
I'm trying to set up a new Cisco SF500-24P switch for our new Polycom IP phones but I'm having some trouble configuring them. It seems a fairly basic setup - We have a Cisco 2800 series router which is configured in a router-on-a-stick scenario to give DHCP addresses to two vlans, '1' for data and '20' for voice...
ip dhcp pool DHCPROUTER network 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 default-router 10.10.0.1 dns-server 10.20.124.200 10.20.124.201
The switch worked practically straight out of the box- when I connected a PC or a phone into it they both got addresses in the 10.10.0.0 range and both worked fine. In the web interface I then set the Voice VLAN ID as 20 and as soon as I did this the phones can no longer get addresses from DHCP (although PCs can). The switch and the phone display both show that the phone is in VLAN 20. All ports are members of VLAN1(native, untagged) and VLAN 20 (tagged) and the port connecting to the router is trunked, as are the others.Also, I can ping 172.16.0.1 from the switch so there is no routing problem, although I did try using the switch as a DHCP relay to 172.16.0.1 but still no luck.I'm not sure how relevant this is but one thing I noticed is that data going to the router untagged (and therefore in VLAN 1) gets through but if I tag it with VLAN 1 then it doesn't.
How do i connect two internet routers to one IP address range?I currently have one broadband router connected on 172.16.0.3 subnet 255.255.0.0, I have a second line which is a copper ethernet EFM 2Mb line connected using a Cisco 1800 router configured on 172.16.0.254 subnet 255.255.255.0, no DHCP is configured on either router. the dhcp is provided by a windows 2003 server on our LAN which is also configured on the same LAN IP range. if i connect the Cisco router into the same switch as the broadband router my network devices stop working and dont respond.
If i check the broadband router it shows all the connections to it as having the same MAC address as the Cisco router?? if i disconnect the Cisco router everything returns back to normal and works perfectly.What I want to achieve is to be able to run both routers on the same LAN to provide internet access by configuring the pc's to route through a specific router. the DHCP I want to stay routed through my original broadband line. at the same time i want all pc's to access to the lan devices (ie. servers and printers) what the correct configuration would be for the two internet routers would be?
