I can't create a network bridge in windows xp or well i can, but then my wusb600n says it is not connected, it can find networks but it wont connect to them? I tried take out the lan cable and create but with same result, is this normal that this adapter can't handle network bridge? If i make a virtual machine in Virtualbox i can use the internet, but i cant when i create a network bridge connection in windows xp..
my wireless router that is connected to the internet is in the basement and my computer is upstairs on the second floor of my house. Because of this the signal is very bad, to fix this problem I bought a Belkin Wireless N300 in order to create a wireless bridge but I am having trouble. My downstairs router is a D-Link DI-524 and I have googled all over the place to find a solution but the belkin router doesn't have a wireless bridging option...
We have a linksys WAG54GS router the secure easy setup button of which was pressed instead of the on off switch when a reset was required. Now we can only browse the internet via a cable from the pc lan port to the router ethernet port. Things done :- Secure easy setup button held down for 10 seconds. Router went to an unsecured one now back to secure.
I am looking to replace my current WAG54GS Gateway with the EA6500. Problem is the new one does not have a built in ADSL2+ modem (I am in the UK and my ISP is Demon Internet). I therefore need to purchase a separate Modem to connect to the router.
I use the DWA-552 Linksys wireless card on my PC. I would like to create either a bridge (which seems complicated) to my RNX-N100 USB Wireless dongle. The reason being, I am going to use the RNX to get access to the internet for my Blu-Ray player (BD-C5500T). I have looked everywhere and cannot find any info on the setup. The other way is to connect the PC to my T.V. as my integrated card has an HDMI port and bridge the wireless connection with the integrated wired connection (if that is possible) so i can gain internet access to my Blu-Ray player. I have tried to configure with my player and no-go. It works fine when i configure the RNX on my PC though.
i'm setting up a wireless network for a local B&B they currently have a Linksys WAG54GS ADSL router in one of the rooms but need the wireless signal to reach each guest room the house has thick brick walls and an upstairs.i was thinking of using 2 x repeaters, the WRE54G's, and to put one on the ground floor within range of the current ADSL router and to put another on the 1st floor within range of the repeater on the ground floor to receive the bounced signal.I don't know much about these repeaters and how they work exactly and so unsure if this would be a viable solution in my case.
I have Eight AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9's accross our site that have 2 SSID's and 2 VLAN's that work well, I want to link one of the AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9 to another one using 5ghz patch antennas across a 50 metre gap, but I am puzzled on how to do this, as to create a root bridge and a non route bridge link I need to put the infrastucture SSID on and this must be on VLAN1 but I want the traffic from both VLANs to pass over this link. I just want to ensure the config will work as I need to go into a cherry picker to get to the non-root-bridge.
My router refuses to link to the internet. Status indicates Interface: Down. I thought this was probably a firmware upgrade issue but can only find v1.01.03 which is already installed. Linksys website has no firmware listed for download.
I have downloaded and re-installed the v1.01.03 .img file with no effect. Is this the latest firmware for this model?
I am having problems with my linksys wireless G ADSL gateway WAG54GS router. I am on Windows Vista/Internet Explorer. When I set up the router to work on the internet when I first bought it (several years ago), something must have gone wrong in the installation because it works only when connected to the computer by the lead, and NOT wirelessly.
While this is fine for general internet browsing etc on the main computer, my problem now is that I cannot connect anything else to it (such as my Playstation 3) because the router does not work wirelessly and I do not have the WPA key that the PS3 asks for. Is there any way can fix this without doing a complete reset on the router?
[ALSO: the router also periodically goes wrong, e.g. loses connection for no reason at all - I often have to disable and then enable the internet connection, or turn the router off for 15 seconds then switch it on again, and then it's fine again. I live in a rural area though, so it might be because of a poor connection. Our telephone connecton isn't very good either and sometimes goes wrong.]
I have an old router linksys WAG54GS and now with my new internet connection gave me a HUAWEI 530.I'm still using linksys.So i wanted to connect the HUAWEI on the Linksys cause it has an external button for wireles, which Linksys doesnt.I followed the wizard you wrote.The DHCP off on the HUAWEI Different IP.So the Wired LAN worked fine, having an IP from the Linksys, but the wireless doesnt get one..I tried a lot of things on the huawei, nat off etc but nothing On the linksys i give on DHCP IPs from 192.168.1.105 - 7.I tried connect the netbook but only wired worked, not even my cellphone.
I'm using a WAG54GS 1.0 router with up to date firmware, and signal around the house has always been fine, yet today it has suddently dropped to a VERY limited range - I'm sat right next to it now on a laptop and the signal is 2/5 bars - "fair".I've reset factory settings yet to no avail, I can't even get signal in the next room!
I'm using an RFC 1483 Bridged adsl connection on a WAG54GS router. Downstream rate says 2043 Kbps, and upstream rate only 35 Kbps. In the router setup page I have not found any place to change downstream/upstream rates. How can I increase \the upstream rate?
I have a Maxtor 160Gb external HDD and want to use it as a network drive.So I go to the routers login page and choose for storage to set it up. I did this once and because I wanted to change a few things I deleted the share and changed the users and usergroup that I've made.Now I can't created a share anymore, also tried another disk(flashdrive) nothing seems to work.The only thing I didn't do is reset to factory default, but that's the last thing I want to do.I use the E3000 router with firmware 1.0.04
I have at home a mixed platform (Win + OSX and in the future Linux) and the question is: It is possible to create two partitions on the HDD (NTFS and HFS+) and to use the second to backup a Mac computer (LAN connected) via Time Machine?The second question is related to HDD itself, a Lacie Box fitted with Seagate Barracuda Green 2T: The activation of the HDD sleep mode depends on the HDD itself or on the E4200 USB output (feature)?
Just bought router and installed. I cannot create share in Storage settings in Advanced settings. I hit Create Share and it brings up the dialog box where I enter the display name. Share entire partition is checked already. I save settings and I see the box going to the form where you assign the Group roles, but then the box disappears and closes. All I see is the original Storage setting page with the Create Share button still there.I tried this on Win 7 using both IE8 and Chrome browsers.
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.
I have a WAG200G as my ADSL modem and wireless access point. I would like to build two small wired networks that are remote from the location of the wireless access point (i.e. where my telephone line comes in) so that I can connect several network cabled devices in each location (e.g. NAS drive, TV, games consoles etc). I cannot run network cables to these locaations but believe that I can bridge them via the wireless. At a pinch, I could have only one cabled sub-network but would prefer two.
We have a WRT610N wireless router in our office.we want to setup VPN server through a static ip.we dont know what needs to be done in the router settings to create a VPN server. (necessary port forwarding etc)??
i used to have everything setup properly, Upnp (streaming from PS3), FTP server, Public drive. Everything was working perfect. One day, my drive stopped responsing, and because I had a Security IP camera uploading pictures on it, I thought it was full. The partition was corrupted so I formated the drive. Since then, whatever disk I plug to the router, the "create share" window is not working properly.
Time Warner used remote access to get into my wrt54g system and create a new user id/password for security. As a result, my hp printer will no longer communicate with my computer. HP says to hook up a usb from router to printer, but there's no usb port on the wrt model I own. I hooked up a usb from computer to printer but it did nada...
I tried to set my WAG200G as a wireless bridge, but I encountered some problems doing so.
First I reseted the router to factory default settings, then I put it in "bridge mode only" disabled DHCP and UPnP (this was required for the college network I want to use on it to work). Then I put the UTP cable in one of the LAN ports.
When I try to acces this network though a wire everything works fine, I can see the other devices connected to the network and I can acces the internet. When I try to use the network wirelessly, I still see the other devices on the network but I can't connect to the internet. (The acces to the internet is gained by logging in inside the browser, like with wifi hotspots)
In my apartment, I can receive the wireless signal of free scholl wireless, which is accessable without user name and password. Although the signal is not good, but we used to use a router EA3000 to relay the signal. Now my roommate is leaving with this this router. So I bought EA4500 and try to do the similar job. However, I find that the configurations on 192.168.1.1 are different between EA3000 and EA4500. Many options cannot be found in the EA4500 page, such as the wireless client.
I have a small home network using a Linksys WAG320N which acts as the modem (to connect to BT using PPPoA for ADSL) and provides 4 wired 100Mbs network connections along with a wireless N connections. I use WPA2 (personal) to secure the network and have a white list for allowed wireless devices. Everything works fine.In another part of the house (where I can get a good wireless signal) we have the main TV in the house. Here I have a SKY HD box and a small media player. What I would like to do is connect these two devices to the network and running a network cable is not practical, so I thought I would setup a wireless bridge.I tried a TP-Link bridge borrowed from a friend by this failed to work. I now know this to be because the WAG320N does not support WDS.Will a Linksys WES610N connect to my WAG320N to provide me with what I want?
I have a Western Digital "WD 6400AAC External MYBook that I can not create shares on, nor edit the public folder. In each case, I receive the message "Error on page". I've updated my firmware, several time, to the latest build. I've formatted the my WD drive using the router and my computer, and each time I try to create a share, "Error on page" shows on the bottom left corner of the page and nothing happens. I tried several other drives and the results are the same.
I have a E4200 with 1.0.04 firmware that I've used for a while as a router in front of a cable modem. I have upgraded the modem to a Virgin Media SuperHub. I have connected my E4200's WAN port to one of the SuperHub's LAN ports and changed the E4200's mode to Bridged Mode.I can connect to the Internet wirelessly and wired on the SuperHub, but I can only connect to the Internet via the E4200 if I'm wired to it. The wireless will connect to the E4200, it gets allocated and IP address in the correct range and the gateway is shown as the SuperHub's IP address, and I can see the E4200's management website via wireless, but I cannot connect to anything beyond the E4200.
Internet through DSL-Thompson TG 789 VN router ---> several yards --> Linksys WRT320N --> wired computer netwerk | |with printer | | ---> Wireless Netwerk --> laptops / phones <--- (WAN depending on strongest signal) | ---> several servers
The Thompson does the DHCP and routing. It is the gateway through the internet, IP 192.168.2.254 (mask 255.255.255.0).I can't replace the thompson since it is delivered by my provider. SSID = BertB I want to achieve that all the compuers / laptops / phone and printer are in one network and can communicate with each other So the only possibility, as far as I can see, is to set up the Linksys as a bridge.
I have to do the following at the Linksys but have some questions as mentioned below:
SSID = BertB (the same) channel = different from the channel used by Thompson DHCP = off IP = fixed (192.168.2.253) gateway = 192.168.2.254
how the thompson and the Linksys will build a connection with each other, or will this happen automatically through the above setup?Do I have to put the mac address of the thompson in the Linksys and/or vice versa?
