Routers / Switches :: Use A 2nd Router To Enhance The Signal Of Network?
Mar 15, 2012
I um using ATT UVERSE for my Internet connection. Now I use a Net-gear what is plugged into the PC and into the ATT "Gateway" How they call it. What is how I see it nothing different than a Router with ATT Logo on, but now to my question I have a LAN Cable going to my living room and have a switch there for all my TV ? PO-Box for streaming my direct TV Internet etc. Now I have not perfect Wireless in the whole house.. no I thought can I use the Net-gear Router in the Living room instead of a switch and also send a wireless signal from there.
At 9:15 each night my DLINK router drops the signal.I've tried to unplug it but that doesn't work but it is working again each morning. I can plug directly into the cable modem and it works so I assume it is fine.Is there a time setting on the router?
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.
I connected an EnGenius M5000 AP/Bridge to a switch, a Modem (VSAT) is also connect to the switch and aslo my Desktop standalone PC. All instructions were followed to install the EnGenius M5000. However, only the Power,Lan, and Wan light indicators are on but the Link/Signal indicators - red, yellow and green are not coming on.I tried pinging 192.168.1.1 according to the default IP address, but still there was no responds. Even I tried resetting it on the firmware, but it can not ping
How do I use an Actiontec 1000 modem (with wireless) and a TP-Link 4 port cable/DSL router and still have a wireless signal? When I connect the ethernet from the modem to the router, the router lights come on but the wireless signal goes down. Want 2 PC's wired (only one port on modem) and still want wirelss signal.
Our Motel has a new CenturyLink DSL Wifi Modem at the office desk, and I'm trying to get wifi to all customers via (3) Linksys WRT110 wfi routers that are in the attic. How do you configure the routers so all put a wifi signal out with the same network name ? I keep getting limited connections & etc...
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.
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.
i use time warner cable for many year and now it have a problem with " couldn't find a network " i try many way but still no work . 1 i do pull the plug off and plug in ( usually it works ) 2 i brought a new router ( still " not able to find network " ) 3 i plug direct computer to the modem and it work but dns doesn't work
I am somewhat of a neophyte at networking and I have a question. I have a small business network using a secure wireless router connected to my cable modem. We have a DVR security system which we would like to monitor remotely. I would like to keep the DVR separate from my secure wireless router for security reasons. My thought is to connect the DVR through a cable or wired modem into my cable modem. Do you folks think this will cause an issue with the wireless router which uses DHCP to determine the IP address?
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 recently picked up this router on clearance to replace a Linksys WRT54GS in the hopes that I would get better speeds for streaming multi-media (NETFLIX). I live in a single story home with a room over the garage (this is where my cable modem and Dlink router are located). To increase signal strength throughout my house I had previously purchased an EnGenius ERB9250 range extender (which supports 802.11N 300mbs), now all my wireless devices show full bars anywhere in the house. Unfortunately when I test my connection to the wireless network I seem to only be registering about 5 - 8 mbs. This really isn't any better than I was getting with my older Linksys, but I thought the Dlink could do up to 150mbs. I have verified that both my range extender and the router are configured correctly, and have tried disabling the QoS (read somewhere that it might drop signals). So far nothing I do seems to increase performance. Is this normal for this router? Am I being unrealistic in trying to get better performance? Is there anything special I need to do to increase performance? I downloaded several wireless sniffers and have set my router to wireless channel 6 as this is the least used by my neighbors (actually shows as 6+2).
I have 2 linksys routers installed on my home network. The primary router is a linksys WRT360n and is stationed inside the main home, while the 2nd is a linksys WRT160N located in my office. I've connected them via the lan to lan configuration and have disabled DHCP server on the 2nd. I can access the 2nd router via my primary PC but am unable to access the internet or see the primary from the PC connected to the 2nd router.
I have HP laserjet 4000 tn. Had an old router and upgraded to a new wireless router, when connecting it to the new router, the port I connect to has the amber light come on. I have reset to factory setting thinking it would reset and capture a new ip address. still giving me problems. try connecting it to my macbook pro and cannot get a "fix" on the printer either. I know it has to do with the configuration of the printer.
I am following instructions I found to set up my wirelss network, but am having trouble configuring my router. I'm specifically at a standstill, because I can't connect to http://192.168.1.1. I pinged the router and got a response and went to run/ip config to confirm I have the right URL for the router, but still not able to get to the URL.
One moment the laptop was using the wireless connection from the router in our house and the next it lost internet access and then wasn't able to recognize the SSID or connection at all on the available wireless connections. We have reset the router and restarted the laptop countless times yet the only internet access we have is on the computer the router is hooked up to.The wireless connection works neither on the laptop nor the Wii, both previously works merely hours ago and with no problems until now.We assume there is an issue with the router itself, whether it be a loose ethernet cord (which only faintly can be moved in its place).It's almost as if the router is stopping them (Wii, and laptop) from having access. When we explore the wireless internet properties on the laptop, it shows the wireless connection, yet only there and doesn't give access to it. Could it be the router, or could the company have restricted WiFi only to the computer it is hooked up to?
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.
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 220.127.116.11. If I am on the same network as the machine that is receiving the port forwards, and I type http:// 18.104.22.168 in a browser, the forwarding works fine.If I am external/not on the same network, typing http:// 22.214.171.124 in a browser times out. I have tried http:// 126.96.36.199:9000 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:// 188.8.131.52:8080 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?
