Share Internet connection with TP-LINK WR702N

Q: Share Internet connection with TP-LINK WR702N

Just bought a TP-Link WR702N 150Mbps Wireless N Namo Router

The Plan was for me to share my wireless connection with ethernet connection and connected theTP Link Device to LAN which then would then share the internet conection wirelessly

Reason I only pay for one device to be connect to my current network provider

Ive tried Sharing and Bridging the wireless connection but nothing

the TP link WR702N it's self is able to operate in AP, ROUTER, BRIDGE CLIENT and REPEATER modes

Preferred Solution: Share Internet connection with TP-LINK WR702N

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What are you using as a Modem? The router you have, is mainly used more as a Repeater or A/P, than as a router.

Hi guys,

I have this problem, I want to connect 2 computers on the internet.

both computers are connected with each other using LINKSYS, but my main problem is how to connect them to the internet.

The model of the LINKSYS is not the wireless type, I think this is just like what they call a hub.

Try this:
"Just plug the Crossover cable into the two computers. To set it up go to Control Panel/Network.

If there is and entry there for TCP/IP fine. If not you need to add it. Click Add the Protocal/Add. Select Microsoft and select TCP/IP and OK.

Once you have TCP/IP install highlight it and click properties. Click specifiy IP address and insert 192.168.000.001. Enter sub net mask of 255.255.255.000.

You may get asked if you want to re-boot at this stage. Decline as there is more to do.

Click File and Printer sharing and tick both boxes. Now you can re-boot.

Do the same on the other computer but this time enter an IP address if 192.168.000.002 with the same mask. Install file and printer sharing as well and reboot.

Once the computers have re-booted you need to set up sharing. Right click on any drive or folder in Windows Explorer and clcik Sharing.

Hi. I'm having this problem in Windows 8 where I can't share the Internet with another PC, which runs Windows XP. My Internet connection name displays as "Unidentified network" which I think disables ICS and sharing altogether. I've also tried changing configurations in the HomeGroup and, although a second connection called "Network 2" set as "Private network" appears, it disappears after I reboot the PC. Any help please?

A:Can't share Internet connection

Maybe this tutorial will help. It helps to use a crossover cable for this connection but I believe there are ways around that. The second link shows settings more specific to setting up connection sharing with XP machines.
Internet Connection Sharing - Enable - Windows 7 Forums
Internet Sharing using Cross-Over cable - Windows 7 Forums

You will also want to leave the Home group if you set one up. Home groups are made for Windows 7 machines only.

If you need to share files between those machines you should set up a Workgroup using the same workgroup name for all machines in the workgroup.

Hello!
I need some help in establishing Internet connection sharing. I've got 2 laptops. Both are WiFi and Ethernet enabled. The 3rd piece of hardware is a WiFi router (I call it a "modem"), which acts as a bridge basically at this point. It's this one here:
HUAWEI wireless home gateway HG 530 (its official title)
The Internet connection to the ISP is a wired PPPoE one. There's RJ-45 cable that enters our apartment from the outside (I assume that there's a major router that serves the whole building with Fiber Optic all the way down to ISP itself, but I'm not sure and it's irrelevant to my issue here). I used to connect that RJ-45 cable into an appropriate jack on one of the laptops and I have a PPPoE W7 connection (called a High Speed Connection in Windows environment). So I just "dial" that Internet connection with username and password provided to me by my ISP. It's a regular Ethernet connection as far as HG530 is concerned. Then I started using laptop's WiFi to reach the HG530. I still use the same Windows PPPoE connection for dialing. It saves me having a cable on the floor which (the cable) was reachable by my cat who likes to chew stuff. So that's what I have right now.
I want to make it clear that it's NOT a WiFi Internet connection (there're zillions of threads all over the Net how to share it -- I wouldn't be asking it AGAIN here!). Internet connection is still a wired one. It's the... Read more

Here's a checklist of things for ICS and file sharing for 2 croslinked computers (This is what works for Win 7 and XP):

- both computers set to the same workgroup
- restarts
- advanced sharing settings - all things turned on (network discovery etc.) except for password protected sharing
- bridged the connection with the internet
- turned on Internet Connection Sharing for the internet connection - this forced an ip to the other connection (192.168.137.1) and gave an option to select which connection should have access to the ICS (the second connection or the bridge - you choose the second / crosslinked cable connection)
- shared some folders on both computers
- worked instantly (the other pc aquired a correct ip and internet)

Hi there,

I am currently trying to set up some internet sharing action, and am having a bit of difficulty. Ok, so there is a wireless network in the house I am in, my laptop has wireless in built, but my desktop has no wireless card so as I am in the attic of the house, I am unable to just use an ethernet cable to connect it to the internet. I DO, however, have a cat 5 crossover cable, and was just wondering if it is possible to go from wireless router to wireless laptop, then through a WIRED connection to the desktop?

I've been trying for about half an hour now, but no joy. Am I just being stupid, or do I just create a connection between the desktop and the laptop and then bridge it with the wireless connection? is there something that I need to activate that I've missed?

I have just bought a wireless card, and it should be arriving next week, but I just thought it might be interesting to someone to solve this question.

thanks guys

Hello. 1st I'd like to excuse myself for possible grammatical fails in my problem, I'm not American nor Britainian so please accept my excuse.

Okay, here's the problem.

I'm connecting to internet via Wi-Fi USB adapter and my connection works great. But few days ago friend brought his PC to me so we could do some online gaming over night but there my problems started. We connected both PC's with ethernet cable in this scheme (My PC - ethernet cable - unset router - ethernet cable - his PC)

Okay the problem is that when I set up the LAN, I can't connect to the internet ( I noticed that I can surf the internet when I share my Wireless connection in advanced settings, so I use that trick to connect to the Internet when I need to ) but we can play in LAN.

So here's the real conflict. Why can't I share my internet connection to his PC. I allow my Wireless Network Connection sharing but he can't connect to the internet.

We're both using WinXP SP3 and we have almost same PC's. So can anyone help me?

I am even willing to use TeamViewer for easier help if someone can help me?

My parents have a Dell desktop running windows XP and a new HP 64bit desktop running Windows 7 64bit. They have an actiontec wireless modem/router. I can connect the modem to the Dell computer and get an internet connection. I can move the modem to the other roon and connect it to the new computer and get an internet connection. I cannot get it to work on both.

I connected the modem to the HP computer using ethernet port 1 on the modem and the Dell on ethernet port 2 via a long ethernet cable. I cannot enable ICS on Win 7 because it doesn't see anything else connected. The Dell says nothing is connected to the LAN. Not sure what is going on unless the ethernet cable is bad or possibly too long. Any ideas?

Later this morning I am going to take a multimeter over and do a continuity check on the ethernet cable (I crimped the ends on) and make sure it is good. Am I correct is saying that it should be a "straight through" ethernet cable? Just wondering if there's any other setting I should check while I'm there.

First of all hi to everyone and thanks for helping me out!

I'm using Windows 7 and am desperately trying to share my internet with another laptop which is in reach (less than 30 feet away).

Of course there are several threads and help on the internet but none helped so far after an hour of research.

I have laptop 1 connected via a cable to a router with which I'm using cable internet (so it's not a wireless router). Laptop 1 is therefore connected to the internet. In order to use the internet on laptop 2 to the same time I'd like to share the signal from laptop 1. I created a home network successfully, connect it on laptop 1, also connect to it from laptop 2 successfully but the internet is not shared. What possibly do I do wrong? (it's not too far away or anything like that).

Does it have anything to do that I have to connect laptop 1 with a cable to the router?

A:Share an internet connection with another computer

If your cable router has more than one ethernet-port, simply connect 'laptop 2' to a spare ethernet-port on the router (with, obviously, an ethernet cable from the router to 'laptop 2's' ethernet port.

That's the whole point of having a router, since it does away with the need to set up home networking just for sharing a single connection between two computers.

I have an ISP LAN ISDN connection here at the house and I need to be able to browse the web and be connected to a VPN (through a log in program to another network) through a firewall all at the same time. My network administrator at work says theres no way period. Well i actually had it running for a short time today with Zone Alarm, and would prefer to stay with that software if possible. If not, i do have access to a router. For some reason Zone alarm configured itself and somewhere in there got all changed around.

The ISDN modem is dial up on demand, i tried sharing the connections and the Windows XP HOME firewalls and all that crap and yatta yatta yatta with the Zone Alarm/Windows help files. Spent the last three hours going there and getting the t-shirt.

So basically - somebody out there point me in the right direction and lets show a "network administrator" that his local webmaster can in fact put a spankin on him. If any more info is needed please do not hesitate to ask.

A:is it possible to share internet connection with a switch

Maybe, if the DSL modem has a built in Router just plug the PC's into the switch and the switch into the Modem. If it doesn't have a router then each PC is going to get a Public IP instead of a Private IP address. Most ISP's will only allow you to have one public IP so only one PC will connect. The only way to find out is to plug everything in and see if both PC's get a connection. If only one PC works you'll have to but a router, use Internet connection sharing, or pay extra for another Public IP from your ISP.

I have been thinking about a wireless configuration, if for nothing else than ease of installation and set-up, etc. I understand from some reading and general research that a router is key in this, of course.

A:Planning to share an Internet connection

You're right, the router is the key component. If you can run a wire, I strongly suggest you do so. A wired network will be more trouble-free than a wireless in almost all situations. It's obviously also much more secure.

If you really want to go wireless, you can still connect your computer wired to the router, since you're right there with it. Also, you want at least one wired connection to the router for configuration anyway. What you'd really need is a wireless adapter for the son's computer and a wireless router in that case.

Hey...
I know that 1-way internet via satellite only has download and needs an upload source...If I have a broadband 128k connection (to be used as the upload source) and lets say, a 1mb connection via sat...how can I connect them both at the same time to the router, knowing that the router only has 1 port for the internet cable to be plugged-in?

Any help is much appreciated...

I don't know how you'd use a standard broadband router for this task. My guess is that you'll need to consider either ICS and a host Windows system, or perhaps a Linux rig of some sort. Since you have some sort of broadband, why not just increase the speed of that service and forget about the satellite connection?

You can use the virtual router software for this or you can use the netsh commands to create a hosted wireless network.

This one shows the manual set up using the command prompt.

Or you can install a virtual router.

Hi, I'm switching from landline ISP to mobile ISP (dongle). So I'm thinking of sharing 3G dongle (ZTE MF190) internet connection with other PC, device etc, through D-Link modem+router(DSL-2640B) that I use for landline internet connection before. Is this possible?

I notice that I cannot use homegroup via D-Link anymore after connecting to 3G dongle.
I've tried ICS(internet connection sharing) but to no avail.

Thanks for further assistance..

A:Share 3G dongle internet connection with Wi-Fi router

You will probably find it easiest to use one of these:
Newegg.com - Cradlepoint Wireless 3G&#47;4G N Router &#40;MBR90&#41;

That way the router remains the access point.

Two notebooks.
Both Windows 7 Home Premium.
One wired cable modem (no wireless option).

I am choosing temporary wireless ad hoc network, but the next day, the network is having problems to connect, and I am having to create another network.
It is no problem with me, but the user is not computer savy, and I do not think she can do this.

At first, I created the network, shared the internet connection and even made the two computers in the same homegroup with read/write option, but if the network cannot connect, it will be hard on the user to understand the problem and fix it (Not everybody's mind is computer/math savy, and yes, they do have the right to use computers).

I will try to teach her how to create a ad hoc network, but I was just wondering if there is another easier way than I am doing.

And also, I was wondering if there is any way to create a shortcut for "Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network" ?

Right simple set up..2 computers in the house, one currently with broadband, hence now!
I want both of them to be connected to broadband and I know that Ill obviously have to upgrade my service with my provider.
This will require a router, but one thing, will I need to network the computers. I dont want to do this at all, Id prefer having 2 completely separate pcs like it is now.
Thanks for any help!
 

A:To share an internet connection, do I have to network the computers?

You can either upgrade your connection e.g. get a separate connection from your ISP or network your computers. No need to do both.

A:How to share computer Internet connection as WiFi?

I'm doing exactly that right now I have a Realtek USB WiFi 'dongle' (it says Dynamode 11N USB Adapter on it, but it uses Realtek stuff). The internet gets to my computer via my old phone, tethered via USB. It then goes through the computer and out the USB wireless adapter to my newer phone and iPod as WiFi.
I'm afraid I don't know the exact model of mine, but it looks just like this. (In Devices and Printers it shows up as RTL8188S WLAN Adapter). I just installed the drivers and bit of software, then in the software clicked on the 'Mode' tab, wher I could switch it from 'Station' to 'Access Point'. I could then choose which internet connection into the PC that it shared, set up a WEP key etc. and then share the connection throughout the house.
hope I helped

(I'm pretty sure the one in the link is the one I have, as it looks identical and they don't list any other similar items)

Hello,

I want get my xbox connected to my home network but I don't have a wireless bridge. The router is too far to connect the xbox directly to the router. But I do have a computer with a wireless adapter thats near the xbox. Is there way I can share my wireless connection to my xbox or at very least connect my xbox to my pc to access my files?

Thanks in advance for any help with this
