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 18.104.22.168 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 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?
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.
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 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.
My son is using the above access point on his laptop. He wants to make the connection secure by having a password that you must enter in order to access it. How does he set up this password? Looked at the user manual; see the screens but don't know how to get to the screen.
I´ve recently purchased a Netgear r6300 and a wifi ac bridge (Linksys wumc710) When hooking up my Readynas Pro to the r6300 via the wumc710 I only get transfer rates at max 8MB/s. That´s not very impressive, and even with the bridge located within 10 feet of the router, no walls in between. What am I doing wrong? I´ve set the MTU on the Readynas and the r6300 to 1500.When doing a wired test between the r6300 and the Readynas Pro I can copy a file from the Nas to desktop at approx 80-100MB/s, but with wireless ac via the wumc710 only at 4-8MB/s.
Trying to setup secure net but when I type in the router IP Address, it shows Netgear, Type in printer IP address and it shows Linksys. How can I access my Linksys to make changes? I believe the Netgear shown is Comcast modem...
I have the Netgear wndr4500 router setup as an AP. The wndr4500 has a feature for guest wifi but will not connect to the internet. The main wifi will connect to the internet fine. I'm wondering if I use the WNDR4500 as an AP, the guest features do not work?
How would I bridge a wireless connection with a distance of 400 feet? Would twoAP1262N-A-K9 be able to make this happen? Or is there another wireless bridge that you all can think of?I would be connecting one AP1262 of off a 3750g switch and at the far end (400 ft aproximately) another AP1262N-A-K9.
I had a new AIR-AP1042N-N-K9 access point and I tried to convert it into lightweight mode with the image c1140-rcvk9w8-tar.124-21a.JA2.tar . I used all the methods but the AP is getting hanged at one position after decompressing the new IOS. The capture of the process is below: [code] After this I am getting the junk characters and everytime AP hangs at this position.
How do I connect and configure my WAP54G wireless access point to my new Cable Modem? I have it connected to the modem but I cannot access it to configure it. It appears to be working but before I got the cable modem I had it connected to a router and it was set-up with a static IP address. With my new ISP, I no longer have a static IP address so I am trying to configure the WAP54G to use DHCP. Trying to access it thru the internet at 192.168.1.245 does not work.
I just bought an LG Bluray DVD player (BD390) which is unable to find the access point in my home network.My router is a WRT54G, ver. 2.2, running firmware: Ver.4.21.1. My home network uses high speed cable with two computers on the wireless network, all working with no problems.The router is on the second floor but the two computers and the new BD390 are on the first floor - about 35 feet away. I have the wirelss security set to none and use only the specific computer MAC addresses to allow connection to this network.
I found directions in the forum for a setup using the LG BD390 but with a different Linksys router. I changed the security to WPA (AES); the Beacon interval from 100 to 75; the Fragmentation Threshold from 2346 to 2304; and the RTS Threshold from 2347 to 2307. The DVD wireless connection still failed to find my network. There is a "Push button" connection feature on the BD390 setup which I tried, but the only "button" on the router I could find was in the basic wireless setting, a green icon for the wireless SSID setup. No connection was made there either.
The recommendation connection from the LG manual is for a network cable, but that would be over 50 feet and a real pain to connect, so I would prefer WiFi.
I have a WAP54g hardware version 1.0.I install de last firmware on this access-point but, this access-point reset automatic after a random time..It’s it possible to downgrade de firmware from this access-point?
Have a WRT320N router at one end of the house in the basement. Would like to boost signal to other end of the house. Which product should i use, an access point or a range extender? My house is also wired with Ethernet cable and I could plug the access point into an Ethernet port at the end of the house where the signal is weak.
I've got a AP WAP54G. I've managed to get into the configuration page and rename my router and set a WPA2-Personl password.
The issue I'm facing is that when me and my roomate try to connect to the router at the same time, it shows the laptop that connects second as one that has 'limited connectivity' and hence cannot use the internet. The 1st laptop however works fine! The settings for the router have all been left to default.
I'm not sure, but does this problem have anything to do with the fact that the router in configured with a static IP. If so, then there is another issure which is that whenever I try to change it from static to automatic/dynamic IP, the page fails and the router doesn't even get connected to the configuraion page(192.168.1.245) after that. The only way to get that page again is the reset the router.
Also I'm not able to directly get into the config page when I connect my router to my laptop via lan. I need to change the LAN IP to 192.168.1.x where x is >1.
What I want to do is the opposite of most configurations. I live on a small island with only one DSL connection. The modem is wired connected to a WAP54G Access point. To extend this access point want to use a WRT54G.
I'm using a WRT120N and have had no problems connecting most wireless devices, but a Nintendo DS and DSi owned by my family are unable to connect to the access point. My wireless security mode is disabled, network mode is set to mixed, SSID is the same as on the DS/DSi, Channel width is 20Mhz only, Standard channel is set to 6, but I tried using channel 1 and 11 without success, SSID broadcast is enabled.
I've tried every work-about I could find and always get the 51300 error code, and am at a loss as to what else I can try to get the devices to connect to the access point.
I have 3 E3000 Routers and would quality input regarding using 1 of the E3000 Routers connected to my Broadband Modem (Roadrunner) and would like to know how to configure the remaining 2 E3000 Routers to be hardwired to my main Router as Access Points located approximate segmented 1/3rd areas throughout my house which really is only 1800 Sq.Ft. in area. How to be configure these routers as access points as well as configuring the main router that will be connected to my broadband router. This is my first network to utilize streaming video, Internet Television Programs, Internet Radio, Accessing the Internet in all rooms of my house and outside the immediate adjacent patio area.
I have two SSIDs on an Autonomous Access Point, that goes to a 2960 switch, that connects to a L3 3560. I have a vlan for admin/private internal access that uses the native vlan (1) and guest vlan (50). I have configured both and I am trying to get both to go out the same Internet connection.
I cannot get the guest access to access the Internet. It looks like my computer will go, but it just comes up saying no Internet access.All interfaces are trunking this vlan properly. I can communicate from the laptop to the 3560 but I just can't get to the Internet.
