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'm trying to connect another computer to our household wireless network. I have the security key but I can't get a window to come up asking for it when I click on our family network. How do I get a box to come up asking for the key?
I currently have a wired network which starts with a cable router downstairs which is a virgin media netgear box with firewall and DHCP turned on. I have a NAS server and a smart tv which run off ethernet connections to this router.then have a cable run upstairs to a TPlink gigabit switch which is connected to a PC and a printer (in my study). All this works just fine, no configuration needed.I have a TPlink wireless router, a TL-WR743ND. I want to use this to connect to the switch upstairs (not downstairs - my stone walls limit any wireless access point) to provide wireless network coverage for my house.So I figured I should configure it with a dynamic IP address (ie it gets it from the netgear DHCP), turn off the TPLink's DHCP and firewall, and then any wireless devices attached to the TPLink by wireless should have access to printer and NAS
I have a dir-825 that I am currently using. After building an addition I can connect...or when I do get a connection it is weak.. can I add a wireless dir-615 that I already have as a way of boosting the signal into this addition?
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.
My ISP comes in via phone line to modem then to wireless router.I want to run 200' direct burial line to WAP so that I can access wireless internet at the far point. I have modem and wireless router. what do I need to do the create the distant wireless access?
My wife has a home office with her office computer connected to our modem via a cisco router. Our home computer is connected via this router as well. I want to add a wireless router (netgear) so I can use my laptop anywhere in the house.
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.
[code] I have tried to configure this setup and have had no luck,and in the proccess have learned enough about networking to be really dangerous to my equipment. Is the problem DHCP? or incorporating MAC routing with IP routing? I'm pretty sure I've managed to program one of my keyboard buttons into a World Delete Function,.
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).
At work we have an existing wireless network with with a lot of wireless pc's and devices connected to it.. We want to however connect 2 desktop pc's to the same network so that they have internet access also. These 2 desktops have been connected to the wireless router via wireless dongles, but due to some office arrangements we have to move them to a different office in the building where there is network ports available.I plugged in a D-Link 5-port Gigabit desktop switch to the network point in the office the 2 desktop pc's are moving to and tested it with my laptop (with wireless disabled) to see if everything is working.The LAN seems to be working fine, but when I want to connect to the internet.. it seems something is wrong.
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.
Have netgear wireless internet router from ISP and both pc and laptop have wireless internet access but are not networked together. Don't need to network the two but wish to add wireless printer so can print from each computer. Have ethernet cable connecting wireless printer to router. Will computers now communicate (seperately) with the printer for software installation and subsequent printing use?
I am with Virgin media (UK) and have the 20mbps fiber optic connection. My area has recently been having problems with the broadband and Virgin has recently fixed these problems. However I used to get around 19mbps now that the problem is fixed my computer which is wired to the router gets about 0.4mbps downstream... However the 5 wireless computers all get 16mbps which is pretty good for them. Windows tells me that its a firewall issue and I currently can't use two programs, spotify and steam. They both have firewall issues, even if I turn off my firewall which is the windows one. I also have avast, and when I turn that off, still no good. I used OpenDNS, stopped using that flushed my DNS, that didnt work. I tried to optimize my computer settings, by changing various values in Regedit.All of this has done nothing. I should add that I have recently re-installed Windows 7 so on this fresh install it has never had decent internet speed. Which I thought was weird.. I have basically had these problems since the fresh install. All of my drivers are up to date.
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.
