Configure Thomson TG585v8 Wireless Router To Relay off Alvarion Ethernet

Q: Configure Thomson TG585v8 Wireless Router To Relay off Alvarion Ethernet

Hi All

Not a network expert so need a little help here!

I live out in the sticks so the only way to get an internet connection is through a white box radio receiver made by a company called Alvarion. It's stuck on the outside of the house and only has one wire protruding. This wire runs inside and ends in an ethernet connection. I've been using this to connect to the internet.

So far so good. But now I was hoping to be able to somehow turn this ethernet connection into a wireless connection.

I have a Thomson TG585v8 wireless router and was wondering if there is a way that I can use this? I tried just plugging the Alvarion ethernet connection into one of the Thomson's ports but this didn't work.

I read somewhere that I need to turn off the DHCP for the Thomson router but I can't work out how to get into the configuration menu to do so. If I connect the Thomson directly to my laptop and go to the default Thomson Gateway ( it asks for a username and password and I can't get past this. I've already tried Administrator and a blank password and I've tried the Network Name and Wireless Key just in case, but to no avail. I reset the router but still no luck. I've also tried going to dsldevice.lan but. again, no luck.

Well, I may be wildly off track but if someone would be kind enough to steer me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!

How can I use DWS to set up my Linksys befw11s4 as a wireless relay for internet access? I've upgraded to the latest firmware to give this router DWS capability but am at a loss as to how to set it up. I'd like to set one of these routers at one end of my house connected to my cable modem and have the other in the middle of the house to provide internet access for two computers on the far end which are out of range of the first router.

The easiest way is to run the CD that should have come with the Router, if you havent got it then you will have to configure it manually.

I have two subnets on my home network, one for my family's Internet access and one for my video surveillance system.

https:[email protected]/14869987704/

Sorry for the link rather than inserting a picture but I don't have an account anywhere I can link to the picture or don't know how from Flickr.

It all works correctly except for the wireless connection on the video network. I'm trying to use the wireless router as an access point instead of router; maybe that just won't work with the two routers I've tried. Alternatively, I could have a third subnet for the wireless cameras but I am unsure how to make that work so that the dual-homed PC could access it.

What is best? To buy an access point rather than a router? Or manual route to a third subnet? If the latter, I'd appreciate any instruction on how to configure it. I've read some articles from various router makers on it but it's still not clear.

Hi. Need a lot of help here please......
Let me quickly describe the situation.

I have an ADSL broadband router.
I have recently purchased a NETGEAR WGT 624 wirless router so that I can connect laptops to our network.

Following advice posted on this site previously, I have use lan cable to connect the ADSL router to the netgear. I somehow managed to turn off the DHCP server and have set a static address. I have no idea how i did this or what the static address is, as I fiddled a lot and somehow got it to work.

As I sit here my laptop is able to connect to the wireless network and pick up the network called NETGEAR. It is only a local connection however and does not pickup the internet.
If I plug in a lan cable from the NETGEAR to the laptop, I then have internet connectivety.

The main problem is I have no idea how to configure the netgear router. The manual says:

To log into your router after you have configured your router, do the following:
1. Type http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field of Internet Explorer or Netscape®
When prompted, enter admin for the router user name and password for the router password,
both in lower case letters (or enter the password you chose if you changed it during the setup
in “Initial Configuration” on page 3-2).
Note: The router user name and password are not the same as any user name or password you
may use to log in to your Internet connection.

I purchased a Linksys WRT54G wireless router (version 4) from amazon and when it arrived in the mail, there was no CD with it. I thought it was a new router, but I think it must have been used as it has a goodwill price tag on the underside of it. How do I get this router to send a wireless signal throughout my house without the CD?

So far I have connect the blue ethernet cord from the router to my internet modem and another ethernet cord from my router to my computer. I also have both the wireless router and the internet modem powered up. There is one numbered light on which is where I have the ethernet cord from the computer connected to the router and the internet light is blinking.

I have done several internet searches trying to find how I can send a wireless signal through my house with this router and the main thing I got was to go to the address and configure my router. The thing is though, is that while I can configure the router with a password and everything, I still cannot get connected to the internet. Can anyone walk me through this step by step?

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

I have a sagem 3304 wifi modem router provided by the telecoms company. it has a limited wifi range and in my experience of wifi it also has frequent dropouts/connection problems. we connect the desktop pc to it by ethernet and that's just fine.

we also were given (by a 3rd party) a belkin n1 wireless router (the model without modem) and would like to try it out to be the wifi router. The idea is to connect it by ethernet to the sagem and place it in a more central part of the property. I reckon about 15m of ethernet cable. we would disable the wifi on the sagem. had we been given the belkin model with internal modem, this would not be an issue and we would not need to use the sagem at all - that is not meant to sound ungrateful!!

can anyone see any pitfalls with this? or if it is do-able, any recommendations re:configs?

I have found another post loosely related to using 2 routers however it doesn't really address this specifically:

A:Connecting a wireless router to a modem router via ethernet?

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

My question is regarding our needs for a router/routers.

Our current setup consists of an ethernet broadband router (where everything plugs in) in the "main box" that holds all of the wiring that then goes throughout the house into the bedrooms/den/kitchen desk via cat 5 wiring.

At each of those room locations you can then plug into the wall (cat5) for internet/phone/etc. We have many items that use wifi (iphone, tablets, roku and laptops) so we have plugged a wireless router into the cat 5 jack in the den, then plugged the desktop computer in that room into the wireless router. The rest of the items are used wirelessly throughout the house.

Well our broadband router up in the "main box" we think is going bad (guess is its 8 yrs old). Our internet lately has been patchy, slow and needing to be reset often. Upon speaking with our ISP, they say the connection to the dish on the deck from their tower on the neighboring hillside is "excellent", so we are thinking it must be the router installed when the home was built.

My husband logs on to his work computer from home with gotomypc.com and works on (enormous) spreadsheets, so we need speeds to be fast to keep his sanity. Our current service is 4mbps.

Now my questions finally, 1) do we need the 2 routers i.e. the broadband router in the "main box" with a wireless router in the den or can we do everything we need with one router in the "main box"? The "main box" is ... Read more

Our home school's having trouble attaching a wireless router to my XP PC's ethernet port.

Our donated vintage Macs and XP machines are tied to the internet via a cable box's wireless router. Works just fine. Now I wish to boost the signal to a building beyond the local area by attaching a wireless router to a Dell 260 running XP. This router's IP is (ON) and (OFF), and I've spent hours with the Connection Wizard thing on XP trying to create a ethernet path to the router but I can't find a configuration that states an ethernet path or channel. The modem lights normally and other machines can pick up and connect with its signal but there's no real transmission, the receiver machines getting:

Firefox can't find the server at http://www.acorn.com.
Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of http://www.example.com
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Ironically, the router works just great on the Macs, which has both Airport on to receive signals from a cable TV wireless router and also has its shared Ethernet connection on, and the ethernet side requires no IP configuration like it seems you must on the XP's internet connection page. The router in question just plugs in the Mac and transmits just fine. I... Read more

I have a hopefully simple problem to solve!
I'm in a shared house and the wireless router lives just outside my room. However, the wireless has been playing up a lot lately and keeps dropping out.

I have an ethernet cable connected from my PC to my PS3.

Can I remove this from the pS3 and connect it to the ethernet port on the router to get a wired connection?
I tried it but it would only pick up the wireless and, when I disabled the wireless dongle, nothing at all!

Is there some setting I need to make to 'active' the ethernet connection?

The Router is an O2 Wireless II box. I have Windows 7 Ultimate.

What the lights on the O2 wireless box mean - Support - O2

I may end up getting a separate service put in, because the dropping out is really annoying, but I thought this would be a relatively simple stopgap solution!


A:Ethernet/Wireless router confusion...

For the wireless dropping out problem, have you tried using a different channel in the router's wireless connection settings?

You can scan the area around your house using this Xirrus wi-fi inspector which will help you find an unused channel in your area.

As for the wired connection, assuming the DHCP is enabled, it should work as soon as you plug in the eithernet cable. If not, then you might need to download some drivers for your wired eithernet adaptor.

Hello, friends,

So, I have a weird issue. The other day, I was playing League and my connection started dropping. I spent a couple of days troubleshooting everything I could think of - using multiple PCs, swapping ethernet ports, messing with my router, etc. After a lot of frustration, I had an idea.

Now, on my roommate's PC, he could play League with no issue. On my laptop and my desktop, I couldn't do anything without my connection failing. Bear in mind, I'm hard wired and he's on wifi. Now, our router has a 2.4 ghz band and a 5 ghz band. His wifi connection is on the 5 band, and, as I mentioned, he had no issues. I asked him to swap over to the 2.4 connection, and all of a sudden, lag spikes everywhere.

So, from that we managed to deduce that the 2.4 ghz band on our router is dying. That's all well and good, but now we have another issue - why is our network connection trying to force its way through the wireless router? We tried hardwiring 4 different PCs, and 3 of them are defaulting to the wireless router networks, even when the wireless adapters are turned off. My laptop and desktop are defaulting to 2.4, my roommate's desktop is defaulting to 5, and our last desktop is connection just to "Network". Below is a screenshot of my network connections.
I tried doing an ipconfig /release, /renew, /flushdns, but I got the following error - "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation." I'm completely ... Read more

A:Ethernet connection going through wireless router

Welcome to the forum!

Choose to "forget" the wireless network. Turn off wireless SSID broadcast on the router. Unselect "connect automatically" for the wireless network. Select "connect automatically" for the wired network.

*I am not tech savvy, at all! I will need specifics on HOW to get somewhere/do something. A lot of the terminology used is completely foreign to me.* ​
Weeks ago, my Toshiba Satellite P755-S5215 suddenly stopped having internet access. Instead of a 'connection' icon, I had a computer (??) icon with a red X over it. It said there were no drivers installed. At the time, I had the phone/email support of my computer-knowledgeable ex-husband, who has since decided to stop offering his help. With him, I was able to re-install all network adapters (which were showing the yellow triangle/exclamation mark..I have 7 WAN Miniports that still show this). I tried rebooting in safe-mode, I tried system restore (it says the specified object was not found), and when I tried to run the recovery disc, I go a pop-up message that said "This program does not have a file associated with it for performing this action..."

I did something, as I now get the 'connection' icon, however it has the red X, and says no connections are available. My sons' computers/phones/tablets pick up the wireless, so I know there are connections available. I also tried to connect using an ethernet cable, but that didn't work, either.

I appreciate any help that anyone has!
Thank you!

Hi all ,

I have a Thomson TG 587n router that for some strange reason blocks all HTTP traffic. When connected , downloads work fine as do torrents, p2p applications , and streaming radio. however ALL HTTP traffic is blocked . From ANY browser. Websites appear as 'loading' until i get a timeout blank screen.

I've tried updating the firmware but i cant find ANY firmware information on this online. (not even on the company site).

I've also tried using it as a switch in bridge mode with another router and the same problem persists.

Here are the specs on it.


Does anyone have any ideas ?

I just installed my speedtouch router,and seem to have configered it ok. I am new to routers dont no nofing about them.

But it seems to me after doing on line tests (shildes up) i dont need a firewall on my system windows xp as my router got one installed, am i right in beleving this or do i still need zonealarm running..

Does anyone now where i can get a good setup manual, so i can setup two desktops running windows xp. as speedtouch manual does not explain it to someone who nows nofing about routers.. thanking you.....

A:Thomson speedtouch 530 router:

You don't really need a software firewall (such as zonealarm) if you are behind a NAT Router. A NAT Router does a god job of keeping unwanted incoming packets out, so thats fine. If you still want an outgoing firewall then keep the software firewall, but you don't really need one.

For a school project, we programmed a DHCP relay on a PIC development board, which has 1 ethernet port. So to test it, we need to set up the relay and the clients in one subnet, and a DHCP server in another subnet.

We've been given a TRENDnet TW100-S4W1CA router, which has 4 LAN ports and 1 WAN port. Our plan was to connect the DHCP server with the WAN port and the relay & clients with LAN ports. I made a diagram of this setup:

The problem is that with this configuration, it's not possible for us to ping the DHCP server from a client. The network is unreachable. So all DHCP discover packets sent from the clients never get past the router to the other subnet containing the DHCP server.

The configuration is quite simple though: the router is assigned a static IP for it's WAN interface: and for the ISP gateway address we entered the IP of the DHCP server (

Does anyone here know why this doesn't work?
Much appreciated.

I was wondering if it is possible to connect my printer (HP 6310xi) to my wireless router. Both have ethernet ports so I will be using my ethernet cable.

I wanted to do this mainly because originally my printer is connected to my desktop and I am using print share, but I'm getting rid of the desktop so the print share will be gone, and I still want to be able to print wirelessly from my laptop.

Good afternoon everyone,

Please excuse the way that I may communicate as I am fairly new to posting on here.

I have been having problems with my fathers computer. He currently has a linksys B network card and also has the capability of hooking up with an ethernet cable as he is close enough to it. The software he is using is windows XP

The problem that he has is that while he is using any of his applications, such as on facebook, the computer will intermittently lose connection completely. At first i though that it may have been a problem with the network card but then found out that it is also happening when directly connected.

I run on the same router in the house and use a dell Latitude E6500 with windows vista and no problems staying online.

Does anyone have any possible idea as to how to resolve this. I am in the process of ordering a new network card for him that is a 802.11g instead of a 802.11b beyond this I cannot find any idea as to what is causing it. Any assistance is appreciated and I am more than happy to provide anymore necessary info.

A:computer int disconnects from router on both wireless and with ethernet

Welcome to TSG:
If you are experiencing disconnects on both wired and wireless,I might assume that the problem does not lie with the wireless adapter alone.
Couple of things I might do.
Run your updated antivirus/antispyware suite to flush out any potential threats.
When you lose connectivity,take a look at task manager.Any particular task/process using a high % of cpu.? Idle task should be running above 90%.
Boot up in safe mode with networking.
Same problem?.
Just to be safe,I might download any more current firmware for your router.I understand that your other pc does not have an issue,but newer firmware if available can't hurt.
Any error msgs when connectivity is lost ?
How do you recover ?

My trusty linksys wireless router got fried in a recent electrical storm. While waiting for a new d-link "airplus extreme g" to come in, I've been relying on old wireless routers lying around, like a netgear WGR614 v6.

I connect to the router via ethernet because a) I have a desktop and b) no wireless router I've ever used has allowed me to work in sshell without dropping me after a few minutes. I do a lot of work in shell and after the linksys fried, if I wanted to run a program that takes a while, I had to take everyone off the wireless router and connect to the modem directly. I was hoping my new d-link would solve the problem, but so far things are actually much worse.

I'm still connected via ethernet only but now I get "a network cable connection is unplugged" about every 15 seconds (or less). Again, I never had this problem with the linksys but the other modems I've tried since have been pretty problematic, dropping all the ethernet-connected computers on the network. Any ideas?
EDITED: updated the firmware, that seems to help ... please ignore this message until I know I'm stuck again! I would delete it, but that doesn't seem possible.

My problem is that I can not access the internet and print at the same time. I access the internet thru a modem with a ethernet connection directly to my laptop and I also have a wireless router (TrendNet 54 Mbps, TEW-432BRP) that I use to connect 2 printers.

If I want to use the internet I have to disconnect the wireless router and then if I want to print, I have to re-connect the wireless router which then prevents me from accessing the internet. I can only connect to one of these at a time which is driving me crazy.

I also receive error messages about ip address conflicts on my laptop so I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem. I hope someone can help me with this.

Executive summary:

I want to add a win98 laptop to my network which consists of a desktop that receives a wireless signal from a router. The laptop would connect to this desktop with an ethernet cable.

Here is my detailed setup:

A) Internet comes in through the wall to a Shaw surfboard, then uplinks to a D-Link router (DI 524 - a bit old).

B)The router sends wireless signals flying across the apartment to my desktop
i)which has a wireless ring receiver thingie (http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii221/computer-camp/ASUS Wireless Antenna/oly3646.jpg)
ii)The router also connects directly to my girlfriend's computer via ethernet, but that's not important right now.

A) My desktop has two ethernet ports.
B) The desktop connects to a laptop running win98 (best for playing old games - at least the ones that don't run so well on DosBox)
i)The laptop has an IP when I use ipconfig to check what it sees. This IP is
ii)The laptop also shows a default gateway:

A) When I look at the network, I can see my computer and my girlfriend's. I cannot see the win98 laptop. I suspect I must make changes to its network settings so that I can see it in the list of computers. I might have to bridge some connections? Enable internet connection sharing on the laptop? (AND desktop??) I'm not sure.

Friends -

I am a comcast cablemodem subscriber, and recently upgraded some of my hardware, including a new Motorola modem, which is working fine, and a new Linksys Wireless Router, which doesn't seem to be working fine. The Linksys is talking to two wireless laptops and three desktops, all running Windows XP with SP2 and up to date on all security & patches.

The wireless laptops have no trouble with internet access through the new router, however, two of my three desktops which are connected to the router via standard 10-base-T ethernet cable are having sporadic internet connectivity. The desktop through which the router was installed never has any difficulty with its internet connection. Swapping the cables among the 4 ports on the router doesn't make any difference. All of the default settings were taken with the router's installation (no domain/host indicated), and DHCP for assignment of IP/DNS addresses. Installation was successful. All three of the desktops show a live connection to the LAN at 100 Mbs, even when the two affected desktops can't access the internet. The phenomenon is the same for Netscape, Mozilla, and IE browsers. The TC/PIP settings on each of the desktops are set for "auto" when obtaining the IP and DNS addresses. Comcast will not provide a static IP address to use for the DNS setting, and says that their policy is to use DHCP to assign the addresses. Linksys has been unhelpful.

The cables and ethernet cards are all ... Read more

A:My Ethernet cable nor wireless detects router.

Hi Dez37, welcome to the forums. Go to start, search and type cmd right click on the returned command prompt and select run as administrator, at the prompt copy paste:-

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0 (press enter) Please post the notepad outcome here.

Also go to start, search and type devmgmt.msc, press enter, device manager will open, expand the tree under network adapters, tell us what you see.

Try a power cycle, turn off the modem/router and remove all power to it, turn off your computer and remove all power to it (if a laptop take out the battery) with the power off press the computer start button for a second, this will drain any residual power, leave the computer off. Now repower the modem/router and wait until it acquires all lead lights. Once this happens repower your computer, test your connection now.

I need to connect my W98 SE PC to my wireless router via ethernet cable so I can change the router's settings. I have never used the ethernet adapter on the this PC. DO I have to install any software first? I have been accessing the router via a wireless adapter. Could it be (I hope) as simple as plugging in the wire between the PC and one of the 4 router ports? Does the router signal the PC or will I need to reboot?
Sorry for the "dumb" questions but I know I always get good advice from you guys, and learn in the process.

I have a Belkin G wireless router connected to an Arris modem (Comcast).
I am trying to connect a laptop and an android phone. There is also a PC connected to the wireless router via an ethernet cable.

When the PC is connected, the speed of the wireless connection drops significantly.
From my phone speedtest shows ping 13ms, 27.75 down and 24.18 up when the PC is not connected. When the PC is connected, speedtest shows ping 20ms, 0.2 down, and 0.1 up (if the connection doesn't time out.)

It seems the ethernet connection is taking nearly all the bandwidth and the wireless devices just won't work. How can I give equal bandwidth to the wired and wireless connections?

Thank you very much for your consideration of my problem. I reviewed a couple different searches, but I could no find no information to solve my current problem.

I am running Windows XP Home edition on a Compaq Presario. I have high-speed cable internet through Road Runner, which works very well on my desktop computer. Because of my laptop, I wanted to set up a wireless network, so I purchased a Linksys WRT54GS. For a time, the router allowed my desktop to work on a LAN connection, although the laptop couldn't seem to use the wireless router. The laptop was a budget Toshiba Satellite L35, so I thought maybe the laptop was the problem, but since I have successfully picked up wireless in a few different places outside the home with the laptop.

After about a month, the LAN connection stopped working with the desktop. I believe this occurred after the cable company replaced my modem with a new one. Currently, I have the internet running from the cable modem directly to the desktop. When I plug the desktop into the router by ethernet cord, the power light is solid as is the WLAN light, and the "1" light and the internet light. However, my computer is unable to connect to the internet ("Server not found"). Because of this I can't access the router settings page online, nor can I access wireless from my laptop. Finally, the set-up disk was sadly broken.

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
