Setup Netgear WNR2000v2 Router As Wireless Access Point?
Jan 6, 2012
How do I setup Netgear WNR2000v2 wireless router as a wireless access point? I just upgraded to a Netgear WNDR3700 wireless router and I don't wanted the wnr2000 to go waste. So basically as the followings:
I'm trying to find out if it's possible to setup a 3600HGV (VDSL Gateway) as modem only and have a Netgear DGN3500 (ADSL2+) as a wireless access point. I'm aware that both are DSL modems, my reasoning for wanting to have them both hooked up is that
a) the 3600HGV has no Gigabit switch and runs on wireless G
b) the DGN 3500 has a Gigabit switch and does wireless N. So in a nutshell I want the 3600 as simple modem and the 3500 as a wireless N access point with Gigabit switch.
I am having trouble getting the wrt610n to connect to the wnr2000v2 that can be set a wireless repeater. I had a 160n hooked up and it was working fine, but am unable to get the 610n going on it. setting this type of networking up , but have a general idea of how it works. I have the 610n running and is broadcasting a signal, but the wnr 2000 will not connect to it wirelssly and repeat it. The setup in the netgear is pretty basic , but I am new to the linksys 610n and the interface that's why I believe it has to do with the 610n.
I just got a foscam camera. I am trying to be able to connect to it from my phone while I am not home. I am having one hell of a time trying to connect to my router, I haven't been able to yet. I am using port forwarding, have followed all kinds of instructions I found on the web, and none work. I cannot get port 80 to open. I have a net gear wnr2000v2.
I had been using a Linksys Wireless-N Router WRT350N with a Linksys Wireless-N Access Point WAP4400N. The router quit working so I upgraded to a Linksys Wireless-N Router E1550. The problem is, the new router doesn't sync with the old access point. how to setup the Access Point to sync with the new router?
I am using the WNR200v2 for wireless and with a powerline adapter where should I set my speeds, 54Mbps, 145Mpbs or 300Mbps? Are there any other settings I should changeI have a road runner cable modem with 10Mbps download. I am streaming wireless to a PS3 slim 160gb, WDTV LIVE HD media streamer and a Directv HR24-500 DVR. I am using a powerline adapter kit to stream to a Boxee Box another media streamer. Most of my streaming is from the internet but, I occasionally will download something and then stream it from my HDD to one of my media streamers. My wireless signal only needs to travel about 30 ft. and the same for the powerline adapter
Two desktop computers with windows 7 home premium.Router: Netgear WNR2000v2 (which is NOT IPv6 compliant).External HD: 2TB Fantom.I have the external HD connected to one of the desktops via USB. I'd like to use it to back up the second computer to this HD.How do I get the second computer to recognize this as a backup target?Incidentally I've had problems getting HomeGroup setup since IPv6 is required for HomeGroup. I assume the problems are because the router isn't IPv6 compliant. I've tried the Microsoft Fixit 50410 (Use IPv4 instead of IPv6 in prefix policies. I've also reverted using Microsoft Fixit 50440 (Enable IPv6).
For a long time now, my router has been running fine with my devices. Now all of the sudden, some devices(my xbox, 3ds, and phone) cannot connect to the internet despite them picking up the signal. The weird thing is, the computers in my house and my PS3 can connect. I also don't think it's my security settings(TKIP and AES hybrid) since they all functioned fine with that before this problem.
I tried unsecuring my network as a test, but it seems that only my phone can connect while my 3ds cannot. I haven't tested this with the 360 however. I also tried resetting my router to factory defaults three times.
Every 25 minutes, sometimes sooner, sometimes later but usually on the dot I get limited access and the router interface becomes inaccessible for about 1-3 minutes. My problem is my room mate has left for the week and the router is locked in there. I am unable to connect hardwired or power cycle the router. I have the password for the connect and I just got the PW for the router interface. I also have remote capabilities. I have been trying many things to stop it from being so slow and unstable but basically even though my signal reception is 4-5 bars I am only averaging 11mbps speed. I am using a b/g alfa 1w adapter but this shouldn't be the cause of the slower speeds. I can only achieve 1-3mbps down on speedtest.net whereas before I was getting 6-12mbps down.
-UPnP Off. -NAT Firewall Open. -300mbps Max -Channel 1 no other channels within 5 channels near it. -WPA2-PSK [AES] -Default MAC Address -Automatic Configuring of all IP Addresses -MTU 1500 -WMM On.
Being limited by lack of power cycle and hardwired connect makes it a little harder. I know it's fixable without that though. Also there is no point of a hardwired connect unless I am upgrading the firmware (it already has the newest firmware by default) because I know it should work fine like that. I have tested connecting to other networks and I do not d/c on them. My own research has shown that setting a static IP resolves the issue. I am unfamiliar with exactly how to set this up for the router and the client and if it involves dealing with the ISP (Comcast)
I have a weird problem with my network setup. I have a netgear DG834GT ADSL router which runs fine with my Belkin 51B64C wireless router but when I enable "Use as Access Point" in order for me to see my wireless laptops connected to it the internet performance goes bad, the traffic cuts out momentarily for about 7 seconds at a time, its pretty difficult to surf the net having to wait.The setup is as follows:
as I said above the reason I enable "Use As Access Point" is so I can see the devices in Explorer for file sharing. Is there a way I can use port forwarding on the router to see the devices it would solve the performance problem.
I have a Virgin Media Netgear VMDG480 broadband modem/router. Whilst the Ethernet performance is strong the Wifi signal strength is weak and only provides signal to half of my house. I've seen various comments on other forums that this is a common problem for this device. To overcome this I propose to install a Wireless Access Point at the far end of the house and connect this to the VMDG480 via powerlink. (I already use this powerlink connect to a PC at the far side of the house and this works really well.)
My concerns are:
1. Will the VMDG480 recognise the Wireless Access Point? I've seen some comments that suggest that this may be a problem.
2. Is there any specific type of Wireless Access Point that I should use to ensure compatibility with the VMDG480?
3. Is the use of a Wireless Access Point across powerlink a sensible approach?
4. An alternative approach is to use a Wireless Range Extender. Is this a better approach? If yes should I use a Netgear device to ensure compatibility?
I have tried to set up a wireless access point using an old Netgear DG384G router as the access point. This is connected by wire to a Buffalo WBMR-G54 wireless router.I have switched off DHCP and set a static IP of 188.8.131.52 on the netgear and it is using WPA-PSK security. Buffalo is on channel 6 and on WEP, Netgear channel 11.All was working fine, could connect on laptop, Ipad and iphone all working ok and then suddenly at about 6.00PM the connection became very slow (Last 2 Nights)Tried rebboting router, switched off security and no difference.
I bought the DIR 655 to put into our network as the Netopia wireless fails to connect even though we have maximum signal strength. Att advised that buying a third party router would solve this problem.I did manage to almost configure the DIR 655. I would have to connect it to the system to test it[CODE]
Having some problems connecting up my "new" AP My current set-up consists of a Netgear "Virgin Superhub" cable modem/wireless router, a ZyXEL WRE2205 (repeater) in the hall on the first floor, and Ethernet connections through to a number of rooms, including the loft. I can't get wireless access in the loft, and I want to put the AP up there, connected through Ethernet. I want to use the same SSID and security for the AP as on the router and repeater so I can roam around(!) That's possible isn't it?What I've done so far (which hasn't worked) is connected via laptop to AP, set AP into AP mode(!), set the AP to dynamic IP, set the SSID / security the same as the router/repeater, plugged the AP into the Ethernet and tried to connect.
I am trying to set up my 3Com wireless Access Point that was given to me. I have searched for software to set it up but can't find any.I have read somehwre that the software doesn't even work on Windows 7 anyway.know the default ip adress of this router or how to get into the config pages to set it up.
I need to setup my laptop for two different wireless configurations,at home i have a wireless network that work fine, however, at work i need to configure TCP/IPv4 by feeding in the required IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway etc. But i have to repeat this everyday in office and at home by removing and feeding in the parameters. Is there anyway that i can have both configurations and the system just automatically finds the right wireless network without changing the parameters. I am using windows 7.
We are looking into setting up wireless internet access for the whole complex.
1) We would have around 200 users at max (accounting for people to have more than one device or computer connected. Such as Xbox360 and whatnot). What speeds should we consider from a ISP.?
2) Should we get more than one ISP feed?
3) How many wireless access points should we get? (Ruffly we are looking at 5-6)
4) Where should the WAP's be placed around the complex? Considering the apartments are brick outside and inside regular wood frame/drywall construction type. Also should they be inside or outdoor WAP's.
5)What hardware should be considered? (switches, WAP's, ect...)
I have a 4 year old Linksys WRT54G V8 I'd like to set up as an access point for an Xbox 360 or DirecTV box. I am using a Linksys E3000 as my wrieless router, atm, and was wondering if there was anyway to use the WRT54G as an access point before I go out and buy other network adapters to get these devices connected.
