Wireless Router Access Point And Switch

Sep 10, 2012

I am having a problem setting up an Access Point. Here is my configuration. I have a Comcast Cable Modem that plugs in to a 24 port Netgear Switch. From the switch it plugs into a Linksys N wireless router with an IP of I don't know the linksys model. But it is fairly new. I also have a Netgear WN604 N Access Point that plugs in to the same switch in another location away from the wireless router about 75+ft.

I configured the access point's IP to be with DHCP off and DNS as The cable modems default Gateway is and it handles the dhcp which is provided to the switch were both the wireless router and access point get there IP's. I can't set it up so that the cable modem plugs in to the wireless router first then the switch because of a security system that is setup to the Comcast Cable Modem.

My Goal is to the the same identical SSID and Password for both the Linksys and Access point. I don't think I can set it up as a repeater because it's to far away from the linksys router.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Turning E2000 Into Access Point / Switch?

Dec 6, 2012

we got a At&T Modem/Router upstairs, and then we got a long ethernet cable running from there to the basement. The problem is that this only allows for one LAN connection at a time (an issue for LAN parties and such). I do have an E2000 Linksys router however and I want to be able to use that as like a switch/access point.I am pretty sure this is possible but I have forgotten all of the steps to do it.The att modem/router is running on, and my Linksys which is now directly connected is on, so I have a different address in that regards.Do I need to edit my Linksys settings now, or do I have to edit the at&t settings?Also I will be using this for Xbox Live at points so will I need to re-open all those ports up on my Linksys, or at least set the DHCP to the Xbox's static IP to keep my NAT good?

Adding A Wireless Access Point After A Switch?

Jan 7, 2012

I am staying with some family for the next two months and they don't have wireless internet at their house. When they bought their house it was wired for ethernet and have the modem going to a netgear 8 port switch which is going to the different rooms of the house. I would like to add a wireless access point to one of those 8 ports coming from the switch. I currently have a TP-LINK TLWR740N router that I can configure into an access point, or I can buy just and access point. Unfortunately it is not an option for me to plug the modem into the router and then the router into the switch.

Routers / Switches :: Use TEW-639 As A Wireless Access Point And Switch

Jul 6, 2012

Here is my set up: is a Linksys WRT610N acting as a router and DHCP server for addresses .100 to .150 is TEW-639 with DHCP turned off and connected to the Lynksys via one of the LAN ports.

I then have a FosCam camera with IP, connected either wirelessly or via a wire on a LAN port to the TEW-639W.

Here is my problem: If the FosCam is connected wirelessly to the TEW-639W I am unable to see it from any device connected to the Linksys. If I connect the FosCam via a wire to a LAN port on the TEW-639W then I can see it from a device connected to the Linksys device.If a device is connected to the network via the TEW-639, I can see the FosCam whether it is hardwired or wirelessly connected to the TEW-639. What am I doing wrong?Why can I not see the wireless connections on the TEW-639 from a Linksys connected device?,The setup is that the internet comes in and is connected to the Linksys, which then via LAN cable and LAN ports on both devices is connected to the TEW-639, which is then connected to the camera.

Wifi Network Access Point With Switch?

Dec 28, 2011

I think I know what I want, but I just wanted to check before I splashed the cash and made the wrong choiceI have a Humax Freesat recorder and a Panasonic Blu-Ray player. Both of which have services that need internet access, but neither are WIFI enabled & are the wrong side of the room to be connected via cabled ethernet.I believe that what I need is to wireless access point? I'd like one with a built in switch as well, as most seem to only come with only one port. The one I found has four, which would be useful as I could replace the poor wireless Xbox 360 dongle.

Linksys Access Point :: Wap200e Disabled STP On Switch And On AP

Jun 21, 2012

I'm using 4 wap200 cisco AP, 1 wap200e linksys AP and 1 cisco sf300-24p switch. Every AP has 2 SSIDs,one is for clients and one for mobile devices.I have updated the equipment to the latest firmware but I still encounter the same issue. The mobile devices go through APs and once every 2 days, my wap200e blocks its lan interface. I suspected a stp issue, because the switch was seeing MAC addresses coming from different ports.So I disabled STP on the switch and on the AP. The annoying thing thing is that none of my other antennas get cut off.I tried replacing it with a cisco wap200e,same issue.

Linksys Access Point :: Connect And Configure WAP54G Access Point To New Cable Modem?

Nov 1, 2012

How do I connect and configure my WAP54G wireless access point to my new Cable Modem? I have it connected to the modem but I cannot access it to configure it. It appears to be working but before I got the cable modem I had it connected to a router and it was set-up with a static IP address. With my new ISP, I no longer have a static IP address so I am trying to configure the WAP54G to use DHCP. Trying to access it thru the internet at does not work.

Linksys Access Point :: WRT54G - Unable To Find Access Point In Home Network

Aug 29, 2009

I just bought an LG Bluray DVD player (BD390) which is unable to find the access point in my home network.My router is a WRT54G, ver. 2.2, running firmware: Ver.4.21.1.  My home network uses high speed cable with two computers on the wireless network, all working with no problems.The router is on the second floor but the two computers and the new BD390 are on the first floor - about 35 feet away. I have the wirelss security set to none and use only the specific computer MAC addresses to allow connection to this network.
I found directions in the forum for a setup using the LG BD390  but with a different Linksys router. I changed the security to WPA (AES); the Beacon interval from 100 to 75; the Fragmentation Threshold from 2346 to 2304; and the RTS Threshold  from 2347 to 2307. The DVD wireless connection still failed to find my network. There is a "Push button" connection feature on the BD390 setup which I tried, but the only "button" on the router I could find was in the basic wireless setting, a green icon for the wireless SSID setup. No connection was made there either.
The recommendation connection from the LG manual is for a network cable, but that would be over 50 feet and a real pain to connect, so I would prefer WiFi.

Get A Wireless Access Point (not A Router)?

Dec 4, 2011

1) I have an appliance that I need connected to the internet however it only accepts an ethernet cable(cat5 is the name I think). However, my modem and wireless router is another room, and I do not want to extend a cable from one room to another. I was wondering if I can do this:

Get a Wireless Access Point(not a router). I noticed that there are ethernet ports behind the WAP. Can I configure the WAP so that it receives internet connection from my original router, and then when the WAP has internet connection, can I just plug a ethernet cable from the WAP to any appliance that I want to go online with.I will try to make it easier:

Modem---(WIRED CONNNECTION)---Router...........(Wireless Connection)......WAP----(Wired Connection)----APPLIANCE

I read somewhere that you can only connect to the WAP wirelessly, and not through ethernet. And if I can, is it easy to set up for a noobie like me?

2) If this sort of configuration is possible, can the router and WAP be different brands? For example, can my router be Linksys and my Wireless Access Point be D Link?

Access Point Wireless Router Compatibility?

Apr 1, 2012

I have a cisco/linksys wireless router connected to a cable modem. Also a belkin universal range extender in another part of the house, which picks up the wireless router signal and boosts it - but not very strongly. The belkin RE can also be used as an access point. Can I run a wire & connect it to the cisco/linksys wireless router? Will my laptop pick up the wireless signal from either device depending where in the house it is?

D-Link DIR-615 :: New Wireless Router / Access Point

Nov 5, 2012

A friend of mine has a network with the following setup: D-Link DSL-2500U for ADSL, connected straight into a Telkom DG834GUv5 (locally rebadged Netgear) which has 2 PCs connected via cable, and 2 laptops via Wireless. A cable runs from the Telkom into a standard IPLink switch, which merely extends a cable into a D-Link DIR-615 running DD-WRT that has 2 computers connected, and shares wireless to a couple laptops.

At the moment the network is somewhat unstable, and recently the Telkom router has been giving serious problems, even after resetting to default. I want to try make the network a bit simpler and more stable. Firstly, I want to remove the IPLink switch, which merely extends the cable. Is an Ethernet Coupler what I need? Both cables are definitely under 100m combined (probably under 50m).

Now the big thing is a replacement for the Telkom (rebadged NetGear). Should I get another D-Link DIR-615 or is there a better solution? Their budget is between $40 and $60 US. Is it best to stick to the same brand, considering both devices are D-Link at present?
