I'm trying to add another computer to an existing, wireless system. I followed the directions I found online, but when I get to the point where I'm supposed to "take note of the numeric code beside the Default Gateway icon", no such icon, and no code, is present. By the way, I'm attempting this from the current, wireless computer.
I already have a wireless router but the signal strength doesn't seem to penetrate brick walls well. I want to add another wireless switch to access the same Internet but am not sure exactly what I should purchase. I know I don't want another router, so what should I buy?
I have a DIR-301 router connected to a Virgin cable modem. It provides the Internet to the PC and wirelessly to other devices (like my iPhone, my wife's Android phone and my iBook) with no problems.I recently bought a Sony TV that has an ethernet port on the back. The Sony wireless dongle they offer (UWA-BR100) is stupidly expensive, so I thought I'd try a wired connection via an access point.I bought another DIR-301 from eBay, as it was advertised as an access point which I thought would give the TV an Internet connetion.I've tried everything I can think of and have been advised, but I can't get a connection via the TV.
we already have an existing network tru a switch hub and other two pc access internet through a wireless router and this wireless router is connected to the switch hub together with the other pc our problem is we cant share files and folders to the other two pc using wireless..How can we share files to other two pc.
I moved into an apartment complex that has wireless already set up, but it is so slow! I heard that if I connect with my own router then the speed will be faster. How do I configure my router for that? I have a netgear WGR614v.10 and am using a macbook pro.
I have a wireless set up at home and recently had to replace my DSL modem (due to my cat knocking over my coffee cup and spilling coffee on my old modem) I have managed to connect to the internet directly through the modem, but want to connect wireless. How can I connect my new modem to my old wireless network?
I have an existing wireless network, and wish to add a Netbook to it. The Netbook can detect the network, but will not join it. It says the signal is strong, but still will not join the network. The computers cannot detect the Netbook wirelessly either, although network discovery is turned on.
I have an existing network in a 300 year old structure. There is a base router from which there are 3 wired (ethernet) lines to parts of the structure. Due to the structure itself (near 2 ft thick walls - masonry) the wireless from the base router reaches only a short distance. I would like to "extend" the wireless reach using those 3 existing runs. So - can I add 3 more routers or should I go with Wireless Access Points or what else would work?
I have been deploying various wireless AP's in my network for years and years. We have a Cisco network with at least 30 different subnets, and we use EIGRP as our dynamic routing protocol. I have always wanted our AP's to act like a switch instead of a router. So I have always disabled DHCP, assigned it a static LAN IP address, and plugged it into my network on one of its 1-4 switchports, and not using the "internet" port. This goes for all my routers (varying Linksys/Cisco models, and even a couple old Netgears).
I have been realizing lately that once I get an AP build and sent out to the remote location (on a different subnet), I can usually no longer web into it. I am in the middle of deploying an NPS server to do 802.1x authentication, and I'm realizing that the E2000 I'm using cannot ping or see the NPS server which is on a different subnet. So, I'm sure I'm missing something.On this E2000, I have disabled the SPI firewall, turned off NAT, enabled dynamic routing, etc. But I can't ping devices on another subnet from the E2000. I also can't ping url... or other URL's from the E2000. It will not resolve them. (My DNS servers are on another subnet... same subnet as the NPS server). [code] Is there something I'm missing on my wireless APs? Do I need to configure my Cisco routers to use RIP in addition to EIGRP?
I have an 802.11n/g wireless network throughout my house. I also have several ethernet ports. I want to use the ethernet port to connect to the network and extended the existing wireless network (same SSID). I know AirPort devices from Apple can do this but I wanted to know if anything else could as well. It is too slow when I try to wirelessly extend it (not using ethernet at all).
I want to edit existing wireless network in DLINK router. But I can't find any option to do it. If I go to "wireless settings" option, it shows the three options "wireless network setup wizard", "add wireless device with WPS", "manual wireless network setup", but I cannot find any option to edit the wireless network that was already set up.
Add wireless conection that can't see network. I have an existing working hard wired network. I want to add a wireless connection that has access to the internet, but not to the other devices on the original network.
How can I connect a vista laptop to existing wireless home network with other 3 [COLOR=#000096 !important][COLOR=#000096 !important]xp[/COLOR][/COLOR] machines.I followed googled info but keep chasing my tail as all effords end trying to make an internet connection. [code] is Negear wired & wireless capable in which 2 PCs are wired & an Acer netbook wireless connected, all 3 XP machines.
I'd like to give my DIR-655 (rev. A4, firmware 1.32) to my brother for use as a repeater, to work with the weak signal in his apartment. But I don't see any way to configure the device to join an existing wireless network. Am I wasting my time?
how to add a WRT54GS V1 wireless router (Router B) into my existing WRT54G V2 Wireless network (Router A). The main router WRT54G V2 router (Router A) is located upstairs and is the link to the ISP (Internet).
- DHCP active
- Wireless MAC filter is enabled with only approved MAC's
- Wireless SID Broadcast is disabled
The secondary Router WRT54GS V1 (Router B) will be located down stairs with no Ethernet cable between the two routers.
- Will need this secondary router to connect to the existing wireless network Router A wirelessly.
- Will need to have internet access.
- Will need to have the wired ports to have internet access as well. Needed to connect the Home A / V receiver to update A / V firmware.
I've got a couple new 5508 controllers to replace my 4404's. Im wondering though if I throw them on the network to setup, will there be any conflict with the current access points? Will they try and join the new controllers for any reason automatically? Is there a better way, or a best practice to provision these new controllers?
I have a Airnet 1600 Series that I want to add as another repeater to our 1200 series 802.11g network. We already have 2 AP's running fine as Repeater and BR, I just need to a this 1600 AP to the existing wirelss. Everytime I try to change the 1600ap as a repeater, I get the below error.
cannot set role in radio network to when another radio is set to one of the above roles
Added a wireless router to our office here so that people with laptops could get on the net without having to physically plug in. Right now it is ok, but the router is acting as it's own DHCP server instead of our server here assigning out the IP's.
The main gripe I have is I can only login to the router through my phone and not through my computer. How can I achieve this. We have multiple offices that all connect through a VPN. I would like our sys admin to access the router at his location as well.
Do I just turn off DHCP on the router and thats it? The model is Netgear WNDR4500.
I want to extend wireless from one building to another. I want the second building's AP to also provide access to wireless clients in that building (small).
Can Engenius or Ubiquiti extend an existing wireless network? It looks like the Engenius ENS200EXT I have would work if I had another one in building 1. It doesn't seem like it's meant to work with other brands.
I have a Ubiquiti Picostation that I could use for this as well if it supports it. The existing wireless router in building 1 is a Linksys model.
I have an existing Ethernet 100meg LAN and I want to add a wireless capability. I have looked at some products and it is confusing. Range extenders for about 40-50 UK GBP (equiv $65 US). Eg Netgear WN3000RP or WN2000RPT. But they mention extending the range of an existing wireless network?
I'm trying to set up my desktop using windows xp and a wireless belkin n150 f9k1001 router to connect to a wireless network that is being sent from a mac with some tp-link router so that I can connect to the internet the isp is bell aliant. I'm not entirely sure how to go about this or if it's possible I've tried the worthless tech support and setting it up as an access point but I don't really know what im doing.
I have a WRT54G that has served us well for several years, but I needed a network connection in another part of the house, both wired for TV, and wireless for downstairs. So I ran an ethernet cable through the house and connected it to my new E1200. It's connected to Port 1, not the Internet port. The TV plugs into Port 2, and my Apple TV to port 3. So far so good, TV and Apple TV appear to work fine. Wireless is where I'm having problems, the wireless signals between the two routers appear on Wifi Analyzer I'm using. Both appear strong in signal for a second, then they disappear, then they appear again for a second, then they disappear. So the wifi's signals appear, then disappear and this cycle continues.
The WRT54G is setup with DHCP, channel 6.
IP Address: 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 DHCP Server: Enabled Start IP Address: 192.168.1.100 End IP Address: 192.168.1.149
The E1200 DHCP is disabled, channel 11, 20mhz.
Router IP Address: 192.168.1.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 DHCP Server: Disabled Start IP Address: 192.168.1.1 (DHCP disabled) End IP Address: 192.168.1.50 (DHCP is disabled)
I've tried both routers named the same, and then tried 2 different names. I've rebooted them as well after making changes.
I have an existing wireless network using a Cisco/Linksys WRT400N wireless router (which in turn is connected to a cable internet provider). I need to extend my wireless coverage and so purchased a Cisco/Linksys E1000 to act as an additional access point. Purchased from BB, the local 'geek squad' rep instructed me to follow the users guide for the set up. After login into the admin service on my E1000, I followed the 'Advanced Routing' instructions and disabled the 'NAT' option and subsequently enabled the 'Dynamic Routing (RIP)' option. Everything worked like a charm to this point, but now I'm stuck. What steps do I need to follow to allow clients to log onto my wirelss network via the E1000 (secondary access point)? I've established WEP security keys on the WRT400N (primary access point) and want to use the same network security parameters on the E1000.
