Is it "possible to create a WiFi" or make my desktop using hardware connection, a hotspot? (Without buying a wireless router/modem/card) I mean, is there a tweak or program I can download to configure my desktop running on Windows 7 to create wi-fi? The reason why I'm interested in this it's because, for Bluetooth, it's possible. Just wondering if they have the same nature with WiFi (In terms of configuration and tweaks)^,
I am trying to create a VPN tunnel between two RVS4000 Routers through a WAN. I get the following error when trying to do so. "remote Security Group" and "Local Security Group" can't be in the same network.
We have used two Cisco RVS4000 to create the IPSec VPN between the main office and the branch office. The main office has SBS 2008. There is a Windows Server 2008 as the domain controller in the branch office. One branch office user has a laptop which is not in the domain, but his exchange account is set up in the Outlook. When he connects the laptop to the branch office network, he cannot connect to the exchange server and get the emails. Is there any configuration to set up in the router, server or Outlook?
Trouble connecting to the internet wireless with Motorola SB6120 and Linksys WRT120N. The modem works directly with LAN but as soon as I try to use the router, I can connect to the network but no internet is available.
At home I have a D Link DSL-2640R wireless adsl router/modem in my downstairs office.I would like to use the cable which goes to upstairs of the house to link to some sort of extra router or switch in order to provide more network ports upstairs.
I have DSL with a Comtrend router/wifi (WIFI1). I would like to connect the WRT54GL to the physical network and have it create a separate wifi network (WIFI2), so my laptop will connect to WIFI2, get passed to the LAN and on to the Internet. Cant make this work - tried setting up the WRT for DHCP server, DHCP pass through (to the comtrend), and the best I can do is get connected to WIFI2 and have access to the LAN but not the Internet. Ultimately I want to put a high gain antenna on the WRT to make it reach another building about 400' away and do away with comtrends horrible WIFI, but I cant get to first base.
Is it possible to create a service which will forward public port 9010 to an internal IP address with port 23?First of all, I do not like to open the public Telnet port to the inside so I would use another public port and second my ISP does not allow some public ports beneath port 80?
was wondering if i go wired but through the router is it still being effected by the extra step or is that only going to effect wireless? asking because my wife is wireless but barely gets on, so if im about to do something intensive online would it be worth bypassing the router and plugging straight into the modem
I recently borrowed a friend's desktop and I am having issues with connecting with the router through an ethernet cable. I go to troubleshoot the problem and I get "Local Area Connection 2 doesn't have a valid IP configuration". Its nothing with the router because when I plug my laptop in with the same ethernet cable, I am able to connect perfectly.
Some background on a scale of 1-to-10 with 10 being Sheldon Cooper and 1 being a computer less grandparent, I'm about a 6. I'm home from school for the summer and trying to access my parent's DSL by adding my router as a middleman. I tried the basic hookup (wall->modem-->router-->computer) using a Motorola MSTATEA modem and a Cisco E1000 linksys router
I've been using D-Link DIR-600 wireless router for two months with my ISP, SmartBro. A week ago my internet went down due to heavy rain and technical support had a home visit yesterday to re-activate my internet connection. My net connection came back smoothly using a direct connection from modem to laptop.When I tried to connect the modem to my wifi router, the internet was not detected. Even if I reset the router settings, no internet connection was detected. Initially, I thought there is a problem with my wifi router so I connected the modem to our Edimax wired router but still it could not detect internet access. Every time I open a browser while connected to a router, this message is shown (see attached screenshot).
I tried using another ISP, Wi-Tribe with both wired and wifi routers and everything worked well. So now I assume the problem lies with my SmartBro ISP. I called the ISP hotline but they told me that they do not provide support for router connection problems; only with single, direct connect to a PC.I asked a neighbor IT technician to look into my problem but he too could not solve the problem.
Been using a BEFSR41 with a Speedstream 5200 modem for 7 years with 3 Apple computers. The modem is outdated for todays speeds. Windstream gave me a “new” modem Gagaset 4300. After configuring the 4300 I replaced the 5200 with the 4300. With this setup the computers are not able to connect to the internet. The LED lights on the router do light up and the computer’s networks show there is an ethernet connection but no joy when I try to launch a browser or get email However I could connect the 4300 directly to one computer and get email and search the web. The Windstream tech (phone call) said the router needs to be reconfigured so it can “talk” to the 4300 modem. If this is true how can I configure the router if I cannot get to the Linksys -router web pg?
I am using the WRT54G2 connected to a cable modem that requires a PPPoE login. I followed the Service Providers instructions and cloned the modems MAC address to the WRT54G and setup the PPPoE user id and password. I can then plug my PC into one of the Ethernet connections on the back of the WRT54G and everything works as expected. First I connect to the WRT54G2 and then I open a PPPoE connection in my network settings and it logs into the service provider and everything works as expected. But when I connect to the WRT5G2 wirelessly I connect to the AP fine. When I open the same PPPoE connection to the service provider it fails, the message says I have the wrong userid or password or that the protocol is not supported. Of course I know the userid and password is correct because it works when connected with Ethernet cable. I have tried disabling the security on the wireless network but that did not seem to work.The modem is a HomePNA HCNA Voice Endpoint.I am at the latest firmware 1.0.04.
I have the Linksys BEFSX41 wired Firewall router. My ISP is Verizon DSL. The DSL modem is a Westell 6100G. I have the wall phone line connected to my modem. The output of the modem is going to the input of my Linksys router. I have two computers connected to the router outputs. In order for me to see the output or configuration of my Westall modem, I have to go http://192.168.1.1. In order for me to see the configuration of my Linksys router, I have to enter http://10.10.10.1. When I look at the instructions for setting up and configuring my Linksys router, it never mentions the above 10.10.10.1 address, but instead it tells me to enter the 192.168.1.1 address. I have never done this because when I powered both units for the first time, and it worked, I noticed then that my Linksys address was the 10.10.10.1. Why is it then that none of the settings or instructions for the Linksys router never mention to enter the 10.10.10.1 address as oppose to the one the do call out to enter which is the address for the Westell modem? What would happen if both addresses on both devices were the same?
I currently have a Cisco 800 series wired router which was installed by work. I also have a BT Home Hub wireless router (but no account) - can I configure the BT router in a way so that I can create a wi-fi connection for my personal iphone and ipad?
I have a wired network at work and would like to add wireless capability so the owners here can connect with their mobile devices. The ultimate goal is to have WiFi for company only and not for customers (invisible network). I read about making my wireless router into an access point, which involves disabling the DHCP server on the wireless router and letting your wired router deal with it. The issue is that my wired router is preconfigured for my POS system at work and it has it's DHCP server disabled. So, this configuration isn't an option. Is there any way that I can use my wireless router BEFORE my wired? My DSL modem is in Bridge mode and my wired router deals with the login. I hope this isn't an issue. I'm unsure of which router would deal with the DSL login
I am connecting to internet via 3g HSDPA modem which is connected to my PC. And i have a i touch 4g and i need to get wireless access to it via HSDPA modem, So is it possible or is there any device and a method where i can create a wireless network via HSDPA modem? Btw my PC has Windows XP.
I tried restarting the router and the computer, but to no avail. I've also tried with another ethernet cable and tried several ports, but that did not work, either. What is interesting is that other computers in the household connect to the router via wire without problems. I suppose that means something's wrong with my computer, however, I do not know what. I have a netgear router which says "N300 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router DGN2200v3" on the back. My computer has Windows 7 Home Premium installed. I'm using a DSL connection, and Avast! antivirus.
how do i create 2 networks using 1 cable modem and 1 router and i would like to add a firewall thinking of using xywall usg20 for the firewall..... the issue is i have a small business with 1 point of sale and1 back office computer.(network1) and i would also like to use an air port wifi to offer wifi to my cleints on a seperate network(network2) not allowing access to network1 and i want a firewall on network 1 to protect the back office and pos system
I would like to connect my USB WIFI dongle directly to my wired router, this would enable me to have wifi access without having my PC switched on all the time, is this possible and if so what kind of adapter do I need? I think I need USB A Female to Ethernet RJ45 Male Router Adapter.
am having speed issues on the wireless side of my WRT54GL v1.1 router.When I hook up a laptop to the wired port, am getting roughly 5.4mps down when wired, but only 1.2mpbs down on wireless. I am tried doing a factory restore. I have made sure that no QoS is in place. I have tried multiple devices to make sure it is not something on the device side causing this problem, but all the devices perform just as poorly on wireless but as well on wired.
I just got an E1200 router and connected wired to my win 7 machine, Im clocking in the single digit ranges (~8 mbs) download but on my dusty old win xp laptop wireless, Im getting 20 mbs (max speed from isp 20 mbs). Wife's Mac laptop wireless, same speed. What is going on? I updated the firmware, tried altering some settings based on other entries here suggested (WPA-personal, channel to "6") but no effect.
DSL modem works fine when connected directly to computer. No internet output from WRT54G wired or wireless, but wireless network is recognized by computer, just no internet. I did a reset and installed the latest firmware, then I ran thru the setup CD that came withe the router, and the internet test said no internet connection was available. Cables are fine, connector innards look clean.
