Q: modem -> wireless router 1 -> pc -> cat5 -> wireless router? sad panda

Ok lets get this started.

How you doing? Good? Great, glad to hear it.
How am i doing you ask? mmmm... at the moment... im a sad panda.

Now to the topic at hand.

Short version:
Im attempting to share my pc's usb wireless internet connection with a wireless router connected through my pc'sEthernet port. Is this even remotely doable?? I have done so much searching in the past few days that im starting to feel like im the only person in the english speaking world to have every attempted such thing. Hence.. the sad panda reference.

Why im even attempting to do such a ridiculous thing.

Short version:
Im broke and cant afford new equipment or even a used repeater. At least for the time being and probably for a while with xmass on the way.

The setup.

My friend lives across the street. We decided about a year ago that there was no real reason for us both to be paying for a 25mbs connection when we could split the bill and one of us could just use my self build usb wireless antenna. We both only have one computer so the setup was perfect.

The problem that has decided to show its ugly face is that another friend of mine is giving me his old droid. The cell phone not an actual android. At&t being the wonderful company that they are would like to charge me 25$ a month for 2g of internet access. This is when the cheep wad in me slammed the brakes and said, "no way dude, you dont even pay that much for unlimited 25mbs cable internet".

So the cheep wad in me says to me, "k the droid has wifi. lets just use that". And of coarse i had to agree with myself. Then the new problem struck me..... im using a usb wifi adapter with a directional antenna to even get my computer connected.... sad panda first emerges.

Then we, myself and i, we decide that we will find a way to share or bridge a connection from the pc to the extra wireless router we have. We have failed.

I did manage to get an old smart phone that my girlfriend had to connect to the internet one time for about 10 seconds through said wireless router. Google.com works. I was under the assumption i had solved my sad panda dilemma. Alas, i was wrong.

What i have tried:
Shared usb adapters connection through ICS connected cat5 from Ethernet to wireless router wan port.
-
Shared usb adapters connection through ICS connected cat5 from Ethernet to wireless router lan port 1.
-
Shared usb adapters connection through ICS connected crossover cable from Ethernet to wireless router wan port.
-
Shared usb adapters connection through ICS connected crossover cable from Ethernet to wireless router lan port 1.
-Have tried with said wireless router setting on default and also with dns on automatic on pc and wireless router and with dhcp on and off.
-Have adjusted ip and subnet masks multiple times. So many times in fact that is would be useless for me to try to remember everything. auto/manual. Matching original wireless router, not matching.

As you can probably tell from reading this i am at a point where i just dont know what else to do. I can not find a single topic on the ENTIRETY of the internet of someone even asking if this is even possible. Let alone a way to do it. I would assume you would follow the same procedure you would with say, sharing your internet connection with an xbox or another pc. I know the fact that this is another router is whats complicating the matter. I just dont have the know how to fix the problem on my own.

If you have any idea how i can set this up, please let me know. Turn this sad panda's frown upside down .

And even if you dont have any idea how to help me out, thanks for taking the time to read my rant. <-- faking that one.. im still a very sad panda...

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Since we don't support sharing neighbor's wireless, we also don't help with problems trying to expand on that connection. Note that sharing like this is against the terms of service for your ISP. Think of it as stealing the monthly rental from the ISP.

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I've trawled the net for ages but have found nothing. I believe I have a unique situation here and would love some help from some net savvy people. I have strong computing skills, but keep away from networks if possible. Hope someone here can help, would really appreciate it.

Here's my current setup:
- HP Pavillion Laptop with Windows 7
- Receiving internet from a USB connected wireless modem (Huawei model E160E)
It all works well, internet is fine, I'm happy.

Why I want to share this network connection:
I have a couple of iphones and a Nintendo Wii and we would like to connect them to the the laptops internet connection.

Other things I've tried first:
I DO understand "Connectify" is out there and have tried it but it just fails every time I've tried it, the devices that try to connect all just sit there trying to connect and time out.

My possible solution found:

You enable Internet Connection Sharing on the internet connection and configure the Belkin as follows.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

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 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 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. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers... Read more

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.
 

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

So here is my case:

SETUP:

Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (192.168.1.1).

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts 192.168.1.1 and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Problem:
Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!
 

A:Netgear Wireless Router and Westell Modem + Router = Routed Bridge failure

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode. Even if I cut the WRT160N out of the loop and connect the computer direct to the DM111PSP. No internet,... Read more

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

I recently got qwest DSL and I configured my Wireless to work and accept my wireless MAC Address, but when I plug it into the WAN slot in the Linksys router it doesn't work. I went to linksys site and did their configuration which is changing the router LAN IP to 192.168.0.1, then power cycling, but this doesn't help. I cannot access the internet still. Both the modem/router and the router are operating DHCP, but if I disable the modem/router, I cannot access the wireless function, and if I disable the DHCP on my Linksys router, I cannot obtain an IP from the modem router via the linksys router.

Hi I have tried many resolutions and nothing. It all worked before with 2 cheap routers off of my cable modem (High Speed Cogeco Cable) but I couldn't password protect the routers because my wireless for laptop wouldn't log on at all?

1) So now I have a new rca cable modem (from provider) to a linksys ezx55w 5 port switch (not in the uplink port I assume since I have tried with and without from modem).

2) From switch to D-Link Di-524 (for wireless in yard and garage if I choose to bring laptop out here or around) to two computers in garage

3) From switch to 100+ foot of cat cable to house to an X-Micro also wireless for where laptop mainly stays) (cheap router but works great)


So all should be fine as I have researched and had replies to do it this way for ease of not conflicting hooking 2 routers together.

NOT SO...lol.

After reading I do not see if there is something in the settings I should do to each router still...since they (to me) are on seperate lines from the 5 port switch? Or maybe is this a cause from my provider not allowing me to use 2 seperate lines as I see it as well?

ANY HELP is greatly appreciated please been working on this for over 3 weeks now and read so much that all the scenerios don't make sense anymore.

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!!

I was looking at getting a wireless router (either a D-Link 615 or a Netgear Rangemax WNR1000) and I'm not exactly sure how to set it up. I have a BEC Technologies 7402 TM (NOT GTM) adsl wired modem/router that my telephone company gave me when I switched to DSL. There are 4 LAN ports on the back of the modem/router, a line port that my telephone cable is connected to, and a console port that I don't use. 2 of the LAN ports are being used. One is connected to my cable box, the other has an ethernet cord that runs halfway around my house, through a wall and into a wall jack that my desktop computer is connected to. I only want to use the wireless router to connect to my Wii and one laptop, I would like to keep my desktop connection wired. I had previously tried to connect to xbox live by connecting my xbox to one of the LAN ports but I could never get it to work, so now I just switch the ethernet cords between my xbox and computer in the wall jack whenever I want to use one or the other. Will I be able to connect a wireless router to one of the LAN ports and receive a signal or will I have to connect the wireless router to the wall jack that my desktop is hooked to, and run the connection through the router?

We just had DSL brought to the house. We have three computers to use with the internet. We had satelite with the Linksys (WRT54G) wireless router. Now we have the DSL. The problem I am having is getting the wireless router to work with the DSL router. The DSL router is a Siemens SpeedStream 5890 (Bridge Router). I believe it is also the modem. The phone line goes directly to the router. I can get intenet if I plug into one of the ports on the back (there are 4 (5) of them).

One of the computers is directly hooked up to the 5890. My laptop is currently hooked up too, although, I would like to be able to use the wireless so I can get on the internet anywhere in the house.

When I hook up the Linksys to the 5890, the internet light comes on, on the front of the Linksys, but when I try to use the internet through the Linksys, I get nothing. My laptop and the another computer see the wireless and can even connect to it, but there is no internet.

A:DSL modem router to Linksys wireless router

If the Linksys's WAN had any configuration other than "dynamic connection" to work with your previous service, you will need to change that.

If both routers are using the same LAN subnet (192.168.1.x?) you will need to

a. change one of them (e.g., to 192.168.3.x),
b. bridge the modem/router to make it work as a modem only, and then do whatever configuration is needed to connect to your DSL service, or
c. configure the Linksys as a switch and wireless access point.

While (a) is probably the quickest and easiest short term solution, either of the other two are preferable unless you have a need for cascaded routers. Solution (c) is ...

Verizon DSL modem is connected, it gets an IP from Verizon 74.x.x.x and it also gives an internal IP as well so that you can connect to the interface 192.168.0.1

So I connect a plain jane 4 port router and change the IP address to 10.0.0.3 and internet great good shazaam on all computers.

Then I connect a Netgear wireless router to one of the LAN ports on the first router (it's upstairs in a separate house) and I should then disable DHCP and give the netgear an IP of 10.0.0.254 right? Well, once I change the IP of the Netgear, it reboots and I am not able to connect to the router using 10.0.0.254 and I have to hard reset it.

Hi guys I'm new here so please be nice


OK! so before i changed to TPG ADSL2+ i used to be on optus cable using a Netgear Wireless N router. then when i got TPG, i need a router but found out i had to get a combo modem/router. so i got an Open Networks 824RLW which has wireless G.

This unfortunately in my double brick double story house isn't good enough for some pc's. So i know there is a way to do it but i dont know what it is... I'd like to disable the wireless (G) of the Open Networks and keep the modem of it working (and possibly the ethernet ports) and connect my Netgear Wireless N router and use it for wireless (N) and wired networking.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Assassin.

A:Wireless N Router + ADSL2 Modem/Router

Welcome to Seven Forums!

You can certainly do what you describe. It will come down to reconfiguring the two routers.

First, reconfigure the ADSL router (824RLW) to turn off the wireless. I looked at the manual and you can disable the WLAN.

Next, on the old "N" router, disable the DHCP server. This will prevent it from handing out addresses. Also give the NetGear router's LAN port a static IP address on the same subnet as the 824RLW. make it's outside the DHCP range though.

This last piece is important. Connect a cable from one of the four LAN ports on the 824RLW to one of the LAN ports on the old "N" router. NOT the WAN port! The routers have two sides, WAN (Internet) and LAN (Inside). The radio and the switch ports are on the same side (LAN). That's the side you want.

By doing this you bypass the Netgear's router function completely.

Greetings!

I have a problem. I have a cable modem CISCO 2100, INTELLINET wired router, D-Link 10/100 switch. Modem is connected to router along with 3 other computers, switch is connected to router along with 2 other computers. Now all that works fine.
When I try to connect my TELINDUS 1132 ADSL wireless router to switch, I can't access the wireless router, which is http://192.168.1.1/. Why I do this? Because I want to setup my wireless router to work with my laptop in a wireless way, but I can't even access the router.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
 

A:Modem+router+switch+wireless router

Without the wifi connected, use IPCONFIG /ALL and look for the Gateway address - - that should be your 192.168.1.1[*]

Now connect any computer directly to a lan port on the new wifi router BUT leave the WAN port empty!
Again use the ipconfig and look at the Gateway address - - it MUST NOT BE 192.168.1.1 - - that would create a conflict.

While connected like this, change the router address (say 192.168.2.1), limit the DHCP range to something like 2-16, set a new admin password and save the configuration. You will need to login again and now setup the WiFi SSID and passphrase for your encryption. Disable Remote Management and do not allow port 8080. Save the configuration once more.

Now you can add the WiFi router, but let's talk about the wiring.

You now have

Code:

Modem=Router#1--Switch--devices(3)
|
+--- more stuff(2)

The TELINDUS 1132 ADSL is intended to be a modem+router so you will need to
connect a LAN slot on the TELINDUS 1132 to a LAN slot on a switch. (leave the DSL connection empty).


Code:

Modem=Router#1--Switch--devices(3)
| |
| +---- TELINDUS 1132 . . . WiFi Connections
+--- more stuff(2)

ALL your devices will now be controlled by the 192.168.1.1 router shown at the top[*].
The new wifi router on 192.168.2.1 will control the WiFi access, but never assign an IP address. This creates a single LAN subnet and any active device can be configured for all windows Print/File Sharing.

the Cable connected to the modem, modem conencts to the Wireless router, and that connects to my computer. Since i hardly ever use the wireless router, i decided i want to just connect to the modem. I switched all the ethernet cords and by looking at what i had done, everything should have been working fine.

But that is wrong... I couldnt connect to the internet. I while back i set up a static IP address, but i changed that. the settings look like this now:

what can i do so i can just connect throught the modem?!

Hi,

I need help in configuring my cable modem/router (SMC8104wn-res) and wireless router (CISCO RV120W). What I need is to be able to be able to successfully connect the site-to-site VPN. This is how it was configured:

RV120W > Modem (DSL) > Internet > Cable modem/router > RV120W
Site 1 Site 2

I don't have issue with the site 1's end. but I need help in configuring site 2 since I need the Cable Modem/router to act as a modem only (do not know how to set this in bridge mode, disabling it as a router) and making my RV120W as the main router and as the DHCP. Can you give me a guide on how to set this up? Thanks!

Heres the situation. I am renting an apartment in someones home. They have provided me with an ethernet cable from their router(not wireless) but the line is located in a different part of the room that i want my computer to be located in. I CANNOT snake the wire under the carpet or along the wall and do not want a line running through my living room.

So basically there is a cable modem in one section of the house with a conventional router attached to it. That router supplies me with a ethernet cable. I would like to put a wireless router on the cable that I have so I can use my computer in a different location. Will this work?

Hello,I have replaced our old router with a new one and can't seem to get it to work.I have a Sierra Wiress 306 3g Modem, connected with Bigpond. It is working when plugged directly into the computer via USB.I had it plugged into a Netcomm router, which was ethernet cable connected to the destop and also our TIVO device. I was able to link o the internet wirelessly from my laptop - though not if someone was using the desktop at the same time. I suspect an IP address conflict was at fault here, though had no clue how to fix that.My actual problem is my Netcom router no longer works and I've had to purchase another. When I plug my router into the computer I get an error message saying there is another computer on this network with the IP address.... but I tried to change the IP address of the router, to no avail....I returned that router and got another and ended up with the same problem. Something tells me there's nothing wrong with the router or my computer, but perhaps it's my incompetence.That's where you come in...Thanks,Jennifer.

I have had issues trying to setup this wireless network up for a few days. please help me if you can, as im close to using hammers and impact drills.

I have the 2Wire (2701HGV-W) wireless DSL modem from telstra bigpond, which was supplying my house with wireless internet. the wireless network from the 2Wire is a secured network and works fine, but the signal is too weak and keeps dropping out in the upstairs study, which is where its needed.

so i bought a external wireless antenna which i attached to a wireless router i had laying around, its a TP-LINK (TL-WR642G) this one has a connector for external antennas.

from the 2Wire modem, i hooked up using ethernet cable the TP-LINK wireles router. i tried to connect teh upstirs computer, as expected 2 wireless networks were displayed (2Wire-secured and TP-LINK- unsecured).

here is where the problem starts, the signals get mixed up. both networks show full signal strength, but if i connect to the 2Wire the signal will drop to "very low", and it just wont connect to the TP-LINK network.

what im i missing here? any help would be very much appretiated.

Configure the channel of the secondary router to be different from the primary router. Keep them at least four channels apart. Configure both of them with the same SSID and encryption key, and you'll have seamless networking (well close) between them. You can use this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector to find the clearest channels.

The secondary router should also be configured as follows to create a single network where all the connected devices are peers.

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 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 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.

Hey Guys. what i need is some help turning my modem/router combo into just a modem so i can use a different wireless router.
My problems with my current combo are that for gaming (pc xbox and ps3 primarily) i have huge connection problems that would all probably be solved with some simple port forwarding. the problem with that, is that my ISP disabled port forwarding and DMZs on the model modem/router thing we have. Networking is not my strong suit so this hasn't gone so well for me in attempts prior to this.

We have an Ambit cable modem/wireless router combo. there is no model number on the modem itself however in the setup page it lists "Cable Modem : DOCSIS 1.0/1.1/2.0 Compliant" which is looking like it may be a model U10C019.

also. inb4 wrong login: user/user. ISP changed admin pass and will not give it to me. i already spoke to them about this garbage.

new router i want to use is a Linksys wireless router. i already know how to do all the major setup on those. its just this ambit one is trash.

thanks for any help you can give me.
 

A:modem/router combo to just modem for use with new wireless router

Not much, if anything, we can do. To configure the modem/router into bridge (modem only) mode you have to login. If you don't have the login/password the only thing to do is reset it to factory default settings.

Two potential problems with doing that ...

a. They may have disabled that function also.

b. You have to know the settings needed to connect. (Usually not a problem with cable service.)

I have an office over my garage (detached from my house but only about 30-50 feet from modem in house).
The wireless signal is very weak. When I had the modem in the garage office, the wireless signal to the house was weak. Comcast thought their new wireless modem would address this, but it has not.

So, I have run a cat5 cable from the modem across the yard to the garage and hardwired it into a Linksis WRT54G Wireless Router.

Although I can connect to the router wirelessly, I cannot get internet access on my computer. I called Comcast, and they said they would have to disable the wireless signal from the modem if I want to activate the wireless router. I do not see how this will solve anything. They mentioned that to have 2 active wireless signals would create interference. Is this true? I can hardwire my computer to the router, but I also use a laptop and other wireless devices that I would really like to have a strong signal for.

Please advise.
 

A:Is it possible to run wireless router off of wireless Comcast modem?

It should be possible without to much fuss.

I'd guess that you may have double WAN'd your network. The Comcast wireless device is determining what IP addresses all of your devices are supposed to get, and your WRT54G is probably doing the same thing. Both devices are probably set up to automatically provide DHCP services, and they are clashing with each other. The range of IP addresses for both devices may not even be the same. Since your WRT54G is an aftermarket device I'd disable DHCP on that machine (because it'll probably be easier to do and your Comcast device is closest in line to the modem because it is the modem, Oh and you'll have to log into your WRT54G's admin page to disable DHCP ) and make sure the line that runs from the Comcast device to the garage isn't plugged into the WAN port on your WRT54G router but is instead plugged into one of the four network/internet ports. The WAN port is the single port off to the left of the other four ports when viewed from the back.

It's possible with the right equipment to bridge two wireless routers and extend the range of your home network. A Linksis WRT54G firmware can be reflashed as a DD-WRT machine and bridged with another DD-WRT router. I know it's possible because I've done exactly that at my house.

You'll want to got to http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index for any additional info on how to do that.

"won't work" means what? Both devices refuse to power on?

What modems are these anyway? Dialup, cable, DSL, some special wireless connection?

Gateway settings on the wireless modem? If that modem cares about gateways and such, then it is a router device and you should connect it to one of the LAN ports of your wireless router. Disable the router's DHCP server and make sure you don't have any IP address conflicts.

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

Hi Sudmeister.

Get Netgear or Linksys over Belkin any day in my opinion!

You could buy a combined ADSL modem/router but if you want to keep the 2-wire (which is a good idea should things go wrong you can always revert back to using it as wireless router)

You need to configure the 2-wire as a bridge which is mentioned here.....http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/875883.html,
here.....http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10495

and here http://www.ehow.com/how_5160159_put-wire-bridge-mode.html

You have it working now so I would start from option 10 of the 'ehow' instructions.

Good Luck. Let us know how you get on?

Make a note of current settings to save you a headache if things do not work out with the router.

Hi all,

I am new to the site, I have tried searching around for some help for my problem but haven't found anything specific, so I thought I would register and start a new thread

I am fairly computer literate, I have set up some basic home networks, done port-forwarding, some video streaming and am a flash programmer but I am not in any way advanced at networking.

Here is my deal. I am house sitting for a friend. He has ADSL broadband with ukonline. He has a voyager 105 modem that he connects directly to his PC. I want to expand the network for use by multiple PCs. I want to know if I buy a wireless router, am I going to be able to expand the network or is there a chance that the ISP will make this a nightmare? Has anyonelse encountered a similar issue?

Thanks a lot

Sam

In July I purchased a Siemens speedstream 6520 through Valor Telecom(now Windstream Communications). It worked perfectly. We changed phone companies and DSL service and now the modem won't work with the new service. How can I set it up with the new provider? I have the IP address and all that stuff but it still doesn't work. A regular modem connects, but I would like to use the wireless since we have 2 computers and an xbox 360. I would rather not pay for another one. Please help!

I have a 2wire wireless modem/router combo right now but would like to upgrade to a 10/100/1000 one. Can anyone steer me in the right direction what I should look for. I have a DSL connection from AT&T.
