Need help to link two router within one network, and two dhcp server?

Q: Need help to link two router within one network, and two dhcp server?

here is what happen, I am using internet and tv from the service provider, so they send me a new router which handle internet traffic and TV traffic, but since it already doing so much the technician told me not to enable the wireless function, else it might crash often.

so I have two router now,
router A handles TV and Internet (PS3 and A labtop)
router B handles wired and wireless internet ( I have it MAC enable, so ppl won't be able to access my wireless network from outside)

how should I setup so PS3 can access movies from computers behind router B ?

EDIT: I tried to make them within the same subnet

router A : (DHCP 65-99)
router B : (DHCP 100-120)

when I connect router A with B by connect ethernet cable by LAN, Router A is able to ping a computer behind router A, but the computer can't ping router A.

and computers behind router B has no access to internet, but is able to log into the router B setup page.

Hi folks,

As I've said in the title, I'm looking to make a network with two routers but only having DHCP enabled on the secondary router.

Before I go any further I must ask: I have an Arris GT840A (sigh) as the primary ISP required modem. I'm currently connecting via wifi and sometimes have pings to the router coming back in the 1 - 20ms range for extended periods and it's decent. Other times I get a huge range of different ping times, often in the 300ms - 6,000ms range and sometimes even dropped.

Is disabling the DHCP server on the modem and relegating all local networking duties to my WRT54GV2 likely to alleviate this problem, or does this simply boil down to I'm screwed because I have to use this Arris modem?

Moving on with the primary question, here is my current setup:

Router 1: Arris GT840A
WAN IP: Dynamic / ISP assigned
DHCP: Enabled - 50

Router 2: WRT54GV2 (Connected to router 1 via WAN port)
DHCP: Enabled - 50

With my current setup I have been able to ping both router 1 and 2 via wifi, but I have not been able to ping or connect to the internet at large. I have read a couple of different how-to's and other forum answers and feel like this is how I'm supposed to be setting it up, but it's still not working. Something that concerns me about this attempted setup is that it still is using DHCP from the Arris modem / router, and I'm r... Read more

Is it better to use Win2000 Server DHCP or DHCP from my Netgear wireless router?

I am currently in the process of setting up a Win2000 server on my home network which consists of four other 2000/XP machines.
The server is going to be configured as a domain controller and will utilize the Active Directory.

Should I use the Win2000 Server DHCP or stick with my wireless router as the DHCP server? What are the advantages/disadvantages to both and which would be easier to maintain.

Is a 550mhz PIII with 256MB RAM fast enough to make a good home server running Win2000 server?

The server is going to have (2) 120GB Western Digital 7200rpm drives with 8MB cache for storage and a single 60GB Western Digital 7200rpm drive for the OS and few other applications.

The server's primary function is to serve as a media server with an approaching 10GB of MP3 and music video files which is continually going to grow. Disk contention is at a minimum since there are only four PC's on the network. There will also be a lot of digital photos stored on the server and will also serve as a place to perform backups from the other four networked PC's.

A:Win2000 Server DHCP or Router DHCP?

We have a similar setup in our office using Small Business Server, a public IP coming into our router with DHCP turned on, connected to a NIC in the internal DHCP server (which is also running ISA). A second NIC in the server bridges to the internal hub to provide DHCP services to the clients. This way we control port filtering in 2 places and with 2 levels of NAT taking place we feel secure. It may be overkill but we're concerned that EVERYONE is trying to hack into ISA and DHCP servers connected directly to public IP that this setup provides an added level of security.

I recently upgraded my two computers to XP. I was surprised to see the my network configuration was considered 'unsafe'. I have two systems connected to a cheapo hub, which in turn hooks to a cable modem for an uplink. My software firewall uses resources and may not be 100% effective.The dlink seems the way to go. Both computers are using dhcp and the ip might change in 24hrs. After reading about the dlink it seems one has to type in an ip for the router to use, then let the computers use dhcp. So my question is "can the router and my computers both use dhcp and will it still work properly as a hardware firewall?"

update: I bought the D-link DI-704 and Zonealarm hasn't given 1 alert yet. No more pop-up ads either. I'm just wondering how secure I'll be when file and printer sharing is enabled.

I have a D-Link DI-704P router that was working fine about an hour ago. The router has a build in firewall and I needed to bypass it to start a MOH game server.

I followed some instructions I saw on anoter fourm, it included opening up some ports and disabling DHCP. I access these options by communicating with the router through my browser at http:\\

Later my net connection appeared to freeze, which happens once in a while. I usually just renew my IP and it fixes itself. But after I disabled the DCHP I couldn't get a new IP and cant communicate with my router anymore to enable it.

I followed the instructions on dlink.com and tried resetting the router to it's original factory state, hoping it would enable DHCP again, but it didn't seem to work.

I seem to be out of options and I'm not sure what to do, can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.

We have a Local Area Network at work and on this network we have a VM Server with Windows 2003 Server R2 that we plan on using for Active Directory and this server also has DHCP and DNS Server configured on it. is the Server IP. NAT is not configured on the server but is configured on the router.
From this Network I have my own private address range
which connects to my NAT Router. I am able to get an ip address of from the DHCP Server for my XP Client

interface vlan10
ip address
ip nat outside
no shutdown

Next I setup a second interface on my NAT Router.
Interface Vlan 300
ip address
ip nat inside
ip helper address
no shutdown

I set up the range on the same DHCP Server
When I connect my Windows XP Client to Interface Vlan 300 I am unable to get a DHCP address on this client but on the server it says that it received an ip address.
DHCP Server address

it's actually a routing issue; if you can add proper routing from the router to the server,
it will all work.

HOWEVER, it would be far easier to just place all systems in the same subnet.

Hi everyone, I have a Network Everywhere Wireless Router (model NWR04B) and I have 2 PCs (one wireless) and a PS2 hooked up to it. Currently the DHCP server is enabled, but I'm finding that the internal IP of my PS2 and computers keeps rotating and I keep having to change the port forwarding IPs to match the changing ones. It's a big pain sometimes (especially with some PS2 games). My question is, when I disable DHCP, how do I configure my PC and PS2 to use an IP not assigned by the router? I have not tried yet, but I don't want to take any chances so I'm asking here first. Thanks in advance.


A:Disabling DHCP Server on Router

You don't need to switch off DHCP server in the router.
Just reduce the IP addr range the DHCP issues (say to - This is described on pg 34 of the user manual under DHCP. Then in the PCs configure them to have manually set IP addresses (rather the automatically obtained IP addresses) such as,, etc. Thereafter you will not need to adjust the port-forwarding as the router will never issue addr, etc.

In the PC you'll need to set the IP configuration parameters on the Ethernet adaptor. e.g. on XP: under
Start / Control Panel / Network Connections / LAN or High-speed internet,
locate your connection, do Properties / General / Interner Protocol (TCP/IP) / Properties and set the IP details you require there. I am not familar with the PS2 so cannot say where it's done on that device.

Hi all! I have two routers: One is a Linksys WRG54G with the Tomato firmware flashed. The other is a PC running the IPCop software.

Either would work fine on their own as a router. I'm wanting to use them both, though, because each offers different features.

Tomato has good QoS features, but IPCop has good URL filtering.

My current setup is this: IPCop is, Tomato is Tomato is the DHCP server, and uses as the default gateway. So all traffic gets passed through (IPCop), it appears.

What I would like to have is ONLY web traffic going through IPCop. I guess I could do this by using it as a proxy server, and manually entering in the proxy settings on each computer on the network. That isn't practical, though, so I'm trying to think of a better way.

I have a hunch there's a fairly simple solution to this, but I can't quite peg it.

The goal is this: Have the Tomato router be the real "router" -- DHCP server, port forwarding, et cetera, but force ALL web traffic and ONLY web traffic through IPCop.

Any suggestions??

A:Cisco Router DHCP Server

It's been a while since I have configured DHCP services on a router or switch. But from what I remember, the router or switch will know which interface to answer on based on the scope(s) you have defined in the DHCP configuration. Say you have two interfaces with one on and another on If you define a DHCP scope to hand out addresses in the range from to 50, the router/switch will know to answer DHCP requests on the interface configured on the subnet.

Hello. I just moved to Auckland, NZ from the USA to go to school at the university here, and am having a problem connecting to the internet in the university residence hall in which I am living.
Wifi is not available in the residence halls, so we need to use an Ethernet cable. When I plug in my computer, the network adapter icon says “Identifying...” for a while then settles on “Unidentified Network” with no internet access, the IP is 169.x.x.x
When I try to release and renew the IP, it says “unable to contact your DHCP server, request has timed out"
I've tried multiple Ethernet cables, both brand new.
I tried connecting to a port in a friend's room in the same building, and even in a classroom on campus, and both had the same result.
Naturally after all that I assumed my NIC somehow died overnight while I traveled here, so I went to a computer repair shop expecting to have some hardware replaced, but we plugged it in there and it worked immediately so they weren't sure what to tell me.
I've gone through pages of old threads at this forum and others like it, trying solutions but having no luck.

When logging onto the company network via a RAS server, the DHCP active leases is not being updated with the IP address assigned to me. This is the case both when the RAS server is configured to give an IP address from a fixed pool, or when configured to obtain IP address from DHCP. As a result, I'm experiencing problems if an existing lan device has an IP address assigned and the dialed in device grabs that address. Whats going on ?

A:{Solved} - DHCP active leases not being updated when dialing into network via RAS server


There should be a clear distinction between the IP adresses available for the network, and those available for the Dial up users. Do not make them part of the same IP group.

The reason is that Dial-up IP addresses should have a lease time of a few hours, and the LAN lease time should be that of a few days. This is obviously not compatible, so they need to be seperate.

Hope this helps

A:Problem with D-Link DI-704UP router USB Print server

Since you've done all the following (from the manual), consider the last sentence. (For the benefit of the casual reader, the Epson Stylus CX5300 is an all-in-one printer, scanner, etc.)

-------------- copied from manual -------------------------

Multi-Function Printers Print
If you have to install the printer using the manufactures software, the printer may not work with the router. If the computer needs to have proprietary software installed to talk to the printer, its probably not going to work with your D-Link router. You may be able to print to the multifunction printer, but the other features will probably not work. If you can use the Add Printer Wizard in Windows to install your printer drivers, then the router may be able to print to your printer.

Start by uninstalling everything: the printer software, the D-Link printer port (if installed), and the printer. Then, install the D-Link printer port software. Next, add a new printer and point the installation to the D-Link port for printing. Complete the printer installation by specifying the correct driver for you printer. If you cannot print using the D-Link port, use the instructions at http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=794 to reconfigure the port to use LPR. If you still have problems printing, try disabling bidirectional printing. If it still fails to print, the printer may be incompatible with the router.

I'm running a simple network at home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router. I have two computers hooked up wired and a wireless router acting like an access point that I use for my laptop occasionally. Until this weekend I've been having no problems but I shut down the computers due to weather and now one of them is not able to communicate with any others on the network. The problem computer will get an address supplied to it by the router (DHCP server) but once it has it I cannot get any other connectivity. Of course this is hindering internet access on this computer. I can ping the loopback and assigned IP addresses w/o problems but when I ping the default gateway (router) and/or the other computer I get "Request timed out." I initially thought it was the NIC so I bought another one but still get the same issue. I've moved the cards to different PCI slots but no luck. I tested the cable running from the computer and the router but found no problems. I even tried resetting the TCP/IP stack but still didn't work. The computer in question is running WinXP SP2 with the original NIC being a Linksys LNE100TX and the new one being a D-Link DFE-530TX+.

Any clues on this? If more info is needed let me know--it's been a while since I've posted. Thanks in advance.

Okay, I got a new client a few weeks ago. What a mess...anyway, they had bought a new Dell with SBS 2K3 on it, and for some reason they have a wired firewall (Linksys), a wireless router (Linksys) and a small switch. After examining the setup of the network, I found the wireless router giving out IP addresses in the 192.168.1.X range, the SBS being what it is, was going to be the DNS/DHCP/DC, on and on, etc. I turned off the DHCP on the wireless router. Yesterday they called and had a machine that I wasn't aware of that couldn't connect, it's a proprietary machine for X-Rays, and all I could do was really look at it, and do a few things, like change the IP if needed, but it's set to DHCP, and it's getting 192.168.1.X addressing, when umm, it can't be. I did ipconfig /release then /renew, nothing, still the old address, with as the DCHP and gateway. I statically set it to the 192.168.0.X settings and nothing, can't ping in or out or see the network. I set it back to DCHP reboot, and it still gets 192.168.1.X address, but there is no DHCP server serving up these address, so ummm, anyone? Oh, the X-Ray comp is plugged directly into the firewall now wich is on the 192.168.0.X network on the inside.......

times on various computers range from good (1-2 minutes) to very bad (5-60). Our second time logons range from 30 seconds to 4 minutes. We have a gigabit connection between each computer on the network. We have 5 domain controllers which also double as our
DNS servers.

Network Magic, D-Link

Installed D-Link Router DI-624, D-Link Wireless Notebook Adapter DWL-650. Installed the software, ran the network wizard, set up network connections, booted and rebooted, installed , uninstalled, reinstalled, ran HP nettcpip, ran W XP repair from HP CD, called ISP to check account, reinstalled Network Magic, powered down router and modem and repowered, clicked repair on Network Magic, hooked Ethernet cable to D-Link router LAN port. Still cannot file and printer share! Checked firewalls on both computers and program access. Incoming connection on host shows no incoming clients connected!
I can surf the net from both the host Compaq and HP Notebook client.

Downloaded and ran free versions of Error Doctor, PC Doctor, PC OnPoint, Win Registry Pro, PC Rescue, PC Mighty Max, Registry Fix, Registry Mechanic (purchased) and CCleaner –some of which I’m suspicious of –the last two I think are OK!

Still unable to network-only surf the net!

Got to be a simple answer! Some permission somewhere not satisfied.

I hope this isn't too dumb of a question:

I recently upgraded to ATT's fastest DSL service, and received their 2WIRE combination Modem/Wireless Router. It is working great with my desktop PC, wireless printer, 2 laptops, and 3 iPhones.

I'm thinking of setting up my old desktop computer (Dell Dimension 4600, Windows XP) for internet TV in the living room.

I have an almost-new D-link DIR-628 wireless router that I used before with the previous SBC DSL modem. Is it possible to set up the DIR-628 as a simple network adapter to use with the old desktop PC? I have seen numerous instruction in this forum for setting up a second router as an access point, but they all seem to require an ethernet connection. I know it might be overkill, but this router is likely to just sit in the box forever.

Any thoughts?

Thank you,

I've searched around on process to secure my wireless network, and just about every articles state to type in the default IP into your web browser to open the D-Link menu. The problem I'm having is, insead of the D-Link menu coming up, I recieve one for my DSL modem.

Is there any other way to check my D-Link config menu?

DSL Modem Model Number is: "ActionTec GT701"
Router Model Number: "WBR-2310"

A:Problem with securing my wireless network with D-link router

Your modem is a modem/router combo and probably has the same LAN IP address as the other router. To access the WBR-2310 disconnect it from the modem/router and then connect a computer to one of its LAN ports.

hey guys,

The printer I have is Panasonic DP-C264. The router is TP-LINK TL-R860.

What might be the problem. The wire is fine. I have tried different wires. Same thing.

I have a cabled network printer, Xerox Phaser 6125n, that have always worked properly from my 3 desktop computers and my laptop.
A few days ago, my old dlink router went dead, and I replaced it with the TP-Link WDR4300 router. Everything worked as usual afterwards, until I found out I could no longer print on my printer. I can access the printers web interface through the ip adress, change settings and such through the browser, but the printer has offline status in windows and print jobs never leaves the print queue in windows. I tried deleting the printer in windows (tried both windows 7 and 8) to reinstall it, but now the Add Printer Wizard can't find it. (I can't still ping the printer and access it through it's web interface). Tried adding it manually pointing it to the printers ip adress, but it won't work.

I tried hooking up an old Linksys router I found, just plugging in the printer and my laptop, and voila: windows found the printer at once and I could print. Back in the new router: no printing.

I've been through all the settings for the router, but can't find anything that looks relevant. I contacted their support, and they don't have an answer but want me to connect my printer to the routers usb port, then install their usb controller utility on my computers and use it that way. But I don't want that. First of all because my printer is located in a different room than the router, and secondly, I don't want to ins... Read more

Guys, I am having a hard time configuring my Access point. I have a DSL Router connected to our telephone line and it works fine wirelessly, Yesterday I purchased TP LINK Router to configure as Access Point to extend wireless signal up to the second floor. Now, I am wondering, should I do some re-configuration on my DSL Router before configuring my TP Link Router? Guys, Please share your thoughts and if you have knowledge on how to configure my 2nd Router to my Wifi Networks that will help.
NOTE: I followed the user guide manual that came with my TP LINK router but it is no USE. I just need to know if should I reconfigure my 1st Router in order to communicate with my 2nd Router.


A:How To CONFIGURE TP LINK ROUTER as ACCESS POINT in an existing network

How are you connecting the two routers together?

An access point needs to have a static IP, and it needs to be outside of the DHCP range that your router is using. For example, if your router assigns IP addresses from to, you need to have the access point IP address below 150 or above 200. I like to keep the access points close to the router, so I usually use for the first access point.

What model router did you buy? TP Link makes a few, and knowing the exact model will help us help you.

i cant connect to the enternet or lan on my desktop. when i type in
the ipconfig /renew then it say unable to connect to the dhcp server.

You have to tell us what network you are connecting to so you can get help. No info = no help.

You could start by describing physically how your computer connects to the lan and then the internet.

I am running completely wireless now. I have a Linksys WRT54G router and about 5 computers connected to it wirelessly (G).

I have a printer that has a built in network card, and you can configure the IP address from the setup screen on the printer. (Xerox C2424)

I'm trying to link the printer up to the router, wirelessly. I have been told that you can use a USB Print Server, but that would not be necessary considering that I have a built-in network card already in the printer. I just purchased a DWL-G700AP D-Link Access Point to hook up to the printer, but I am unsure of how I should configure it. I am trying to link the printer wirelessly to the router, and sharing that to the people on my network.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

I'm Using a Tp-Link 150 Mps Router to connect to ADSL ineternet through Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
First I started getting link redirects to ad-sites like oneclicks and what not. I found two or maybe more unidentirfied devices on my home LAN log, upon matching their MAC Adresses they're an Apple device, a Nokia and some other Android devices.
The DNS while I sat it to use automatically detected DNS servers (ISP DNS) it keeps changing to using a certain DNS.
And Now, I tried to log into the Router's page and find out that the password has been changed. And it's not even the default one that come with the router. So I had to Reset to Factory Default. Moreoever Frameware upgraded one time.
I've Reset the router several times, and last time I used a strong password (presumply takes 7 Months to crack) but in like two weeks now i'm still having the same problems.
My home devices are (used by my family members): - a refurbished iPhone 3. - a DELL laptop running Windows 7 Home Edition (upgraded then downgraded from win10) - a tower PC running Ubuntu. - An iPhone 5 iOS 9 - An unauthentic (seems refurbished or rooter or something) iPhone 4 or 4S

I'm running Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and I've noticed that when I run the DHCP Management tool (DHCPMGMT.MSC) and I add our DHCP Authorised server then close the console, it forgets the DHCP server and I
have to re-select it next time I use the console. 
On the other hand, the DNS console remembers that I've used a particular DNS server even after I close the console.
Wondering why the DHCP Management console is so forgetful?

ok I am at witts end with this thing..I am trying to access the web server from the internet.

I have a ADSL plus 2 connection going to my Actiontec GT724R router.

In the router I have and tried
port forwarding set to ports 1 thru 1023.
Nat is enabled.
DHCP is enabled
remote management is OFF
RIP is off
tried with static routing and without.
UPNP on and off
Firewall is disabled
DMZ hosting on and off
I have no scheduled rules set
no services blocked
rebooted router after changes.
DNS for domain name assigned and updated via. freedns. to WLAN IP

on this router I have 4 computers.


computer A is a windows

computer B is a windows

computer C is windows

computer D is linux web server

When I access the domain by name or Wlan IP address it hits the router and the rouer remote management pops up on the browser. This tells me the router isn't forwarding the port traffic to the server.

I can access the net from the server but not vise versa..

I have looked for a firmware update for the router but there is none. I do have the source code but before I start having someone start jacking with it I would rather see if it's my settings I'm missing.
