Adding extra wifi (modem/router) to my already extended network

Q: Adding extra wifi (modem/router) to my already extended network

I have an internet connection that I have extended to my Brother in law's house, next door. At the moment, I basically have two LAN cables coming out of my modem/router, one going to my computer and another, extended cable, going to his computer.
However, he wants to use his spare modem/router, which has wifi capability, to allow his son to use his own computer downstair with only wifi.
Therefore, will there be any conflicts if I simply splice in a Lan cable or add a lan socket for the second modem/router (wifi location.) at the appropriate point along Lan cable 2? See diagram below.
If there is a possibility of conflict what would be an alternate wiring method?

Thanks,
Tom.

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.)

A: Adding extra wifi (modem/router) to my already extended network

Good drawing and this will work just fine. In fact, that's what I use to get access at the far end of the house. Here's the trick;

router#1(lan slot) ---- (lan slot) router#2 with wifi​
Notice that #2 WAN slot is left empty! This places all systems on the same subnet of the router#1 {what you are doing is making router#2 act like a switch which has wifi support (y) }

* Give router# a unique LAN address (If #1 is 192.168.1.1, then make #2 192.168.1.1) This will allow each to be manage via a browser connection
* in router#2 disable DHCP. This forces #1 to be the manager of the entire network and it will handout all IP addresses
Personally, I use the MAC addresses of my devices to enable router#1 to use Address Reservation of IP address for all devices attached to #1 (ie I map the devices to the range 1.2-> 1.10)

Then set the DHCP range in #1 to 1.100-1.50
These will be used for all devices attached (wired or wifi) to #2

Optional:
All systems can then use the firewall to allow or deny access for one or both halves of the network. EG: I permit access for 1-10 and 255 while denying 100-254​ALL system must allow the top-end address 255 as that is the broadcast address that is used to hand out the DHCP data.

Hi all . Not sure if you remember me, been gone for a while.

So far, I have a cable linksys router for my 2 rigs at home. Works great - constant internet access, no hiccups, it's awesome. However, lately I've been thinking of using some WiFi devices (mainly Apple's Ipod Touch) when I'm just bored around the house or something.

But, there's a slight problem - how do I get WiFi? I guess if I had a wireless router, it'd all "just work". However, I like my current setup, and don't want extensive switching to a whole different router (what am I going to do with these cables I spent so much time on routing around doors and walls?). Is there some kind of WiFi "antenna" I can connect to my router (2 more open slots right now), which I can use for wireless devices? Or... maybe connect a wireless router to my cabled router O_o? Also, after I get a wireless thing, do I expect it to "just work"? Or is there some complicated setup involving WiFi?

I searched Newegg, but didn't find anything of the sort (other than wireless routers, obviously). Any cheap solution ? I don't want to splurge another 50+ bucks after getting $300+ handheld WiFi-enabled device -_-.
 

A:Adding WiFi to an existing cabled network (router) system?

Rick said:



A wireless access point should be the solution. They look a lot like routers usually - but without the routing stuff. .

This device would basically just add wireless capability to your existing setup without interfering with your current configuration.

An issue to consider though is that APs tend to be just as expensive as their router counterparts, despite routers having more versatility. For this reason, you may want to consider getting a router, but turning off its DHCP-server function and not plugging any devices into is WAN port (basically turns it into an AP). It would add a little extra confusion, but the extra utility might be nice...Click to expand...

Aha, interesting... Any specific pointers for a wireless access point? I actually read about them in a how stuff works WiFi article, but I couldn't find anything specific on Newegg. If I were to get a wireless router (again, any specific pointers? ), do I have to replace my main router? Or can I connect the wireless router to one of my main router slots :evil:?

Either way, thanks for the quick reply

So the modem and router is upstairs in the office. I have an extra coax wall outlet that I'm pretty sure it's for internet in the living room.

I'd like ethernet for the TV, PS4 and computer hooked up to the TV. Is it as simple as getting a router or modem with coax?

If so, what would you recommend? Wireless isn't needed on the second one. Just need something with more than 3 ethernet ports.

Hi,

I recently bought dlink D2750U WIFI ADSL modem/router, for my ADSL internet connection.

But I have now changed my ISP, who provide internet via cable(not telephone line). The ISP guy provides a cable modem(old modem) along with it.

I have connected my PC this way:
Cable modem -> Router -> PC through RJ45. I am able to access internet from my PC, but I am not able to get wifi working on the router. And I am logging onto internet through a dial up connection.
Questions:
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 0.0.0.0 or blank. So, I am not able to login to the modem unless I remove the modem connection. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here.

Here are a few more details:

A:Using dlink D2750U Wifi Modem/Router As a Wifi Router

Hey Narain. The D-Link unit you have appears to be a combo unit (modem and wireless router) since it connects straight to the RJ-11 phone line. This unit won't work with an ISP that provides service by way of coax cable. The D-Link will work if you want to use DSL, but you need a cable service compatible modem or combo modem/router if you use cable service.

Not really. The ADSL router doesn't have the correct WAN interface. You need a standard router with an Ethernet WAN connection.

Hello one and all,
I am sincerely hoping someone can assist with my little networking problem as i'm tearing my hair out now..

Here at work we have a Vigor Modem/Router hosting our connection to the world. It was originally on DHCP & the 4 computers & 2 printers found their own IP addresses without problem.

We added a Linksys router via ethernet (to a lan port not the wan) in another area of the yard. This was fine also on DHCP and connecting wirelessly from a laptop or mobile phone was a doddle.

Then our oh so wonderful IT geek decided to put the Vigor on a Static IP along with all the computers connected to it. This has some how cut off the wifi capability of the Linksys router now.

It is basically acting as a hub for two laptops and nothing else.

In simplistic terms with some detail what settings need changing on the Linksys if any?

The Vigors internal IP is 192.168.1.1
Linksys is 192.168.1.4
both on subnet 255.255.255.0

I have been advised to set the Linksys to a static IP on the Internet Connection option but what set of figures do i need for that??

Fingers crossed...

Stonkin

For that I connected the Ethernet port of new DSL modem with the old BSNL wifi modem and applied the following configuration.

I changed the IP address of router from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2

But I get only WIFI connection to connect to phone and not correctly getting the connection on desktop through the ethernet.Sometimes i get the connection and sometimes the connection lost.

A:How to configure wifi modem having router with DSL modem ?

Hi there,

On the second router, DHCP needs to be disabled and assign a fixed IP within the router's IP scope (with Wi-Fi capability) i.e. 192.168.1.3 (make sure that 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3 will be in the IP exclusion list).

First let me say that I LOVE Bleeping Computer and have researched many topics over the years, but have never needed to post because I always have been able to find my answers by reading. This is my first real shout out for help, and any that you guys can give will really be appreciated.

My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting ever since I set it up a few months ago (when we moved in to a new home). I'm running WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security. I originally thought maybe one of my neighbors was sniffing/hacking, so I set up MAC filtering for the WiFi. The logs now constantly (every 4-15 minutes with long breaks occasionally) show the MAC being "denied access" to the router. I thought I was done, but have been annoyed that the connection attempts continue even after months of blocked access. Then the plot thickened...

I ended up changing my WiFi password just to beef up security a little. The router logs then showed my X-Box being "rejected" due to incorrect security (since it had not been changed to the new pw). It occurred to me that the router logs actually differentiated between incorrect security and denial of access... which meant that the attempting hack actually HAS the security password even though I'm running WPA2. To verify my problem, I changed the security password again and only allowed two laptops access to the router.... Read more

A:Router Logs Show an Extra/UNKNOWN WiFi MAC Address - Coming from a KNOWN Laptop

Re: "My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting"
How do you know it is a WI-FI address (Thread title says it's Wi-Fi)?
Hey, how about quoting the exact message Netgear puts in the log.
Yes, I know Netgear's logs are dreadful. They don't show port nor protocol involved, still seeing an exact message might help.

There is such a thing as MAC address spoofing, but whether it plays a role here, I can't tell.

Is it only in the log or does it show up in the wired or wireless section of Active Device list?

I don't know why you suspect your laptop since you're saying these are inbound attempts.

Are those connection attempts occuring when the Lexmark printer is off or totally disconnected from the router?

If the data in the log matches your printer's MAC address, than my guess is normal activity of the printer announcing its presence on the network. And since it's not a wi-fi printer, your MAC filtering doesn't seem relevant.

If MAC is all you see in the log, and no IP, perhaps it's trying to get an IP from the router - do you have a LAN range of IPs setup that might be too narrow for all your gear?

Are you able to print?

Sorry for no help, but I thought I'd ask for some clarifications to this confusing story.

A:Inquire about adding NIC ports to combined cable modem/Router

NIC means network interface card. I think you mean LAN port or Ethernet port, correct? If so then yes you can add a switch or router to augment the number of ports available to your network. I recently needed additinal ethernet ports so I used a extra router I have. You need to do some reconfiguring of the router ( many good online tutorials) or you can buy a switch pretty cheap 20-30 usd. They are plug and play.

I heard that it was possible to extend the range of a wireless network by adding a router abd getting them to talk to each other thus gaining another access point in a different location....

I have high-speed cable Internet access provided by Comcast.

Below are the 5 peices of gear I already own.

1) RCA cable modem - Model DCM 305
2) DLINK- DI-713P Wireless router
3) NetGear Gateway Router 314 RT
4) D-link - DSS 8+ 10/100 fast ethernet switch II
5) DLink - DWL 800AP+ Wireless Range Extender (that can operate as an Wireless Access Point or Wireless Repeater)

Note: I found out (after-the-purchase) that the DLINK 800 AP+ cannot repeat a signal for the DLINK DI-713P...

SO, with the above combo of gear, is it possible to construct an extended wireless network of some sort....

Any creative ideas encouraged!

I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to Networking but here goes.

I've got a D-Link DSL-604+ 22Mbps Wireless router with built-in ADSL modem and a D-Link DI-624 108Mbps Wireless Broadband router.

Obviously the DI-624 that I recently purchased doesn't feature an in-built modem so instead of blowing $50 on a D-Link ADSL modem with Ethernet connectivity I was hoping to use the ADSL modem feature in my old Wireless router (604+) as my modem for the DI-624.

I called D-Link support but unfortunately after an hour of following live instructions from their support staff, I ended up nowhere.

They instructed me to disable DHCP and NAT features on the 604+ and plug an ethernet cable into it's LAN PORT 1 and plug the other end into the WAN PORT on the 624.

I plugged an ethernet cable into the DI-624 LAN PORT 1 and into my computer's Ethernet port in order to configure the DI-624.

After configuring the DI-624 via its web configuration web page, I could get the 108Mbps network up and running but without the access to DSL.

If anyone any of the above mentioned products and can provide a tip or a link to a guide or something, that would be great.

A:Router and Modem WiFi Issue

Well, the modem has to connect to the WAN/Internet connection or you won't have any success here. What's happening now is the computer is connecting directly to the modem and using the router as a simple switch.

Do NOT try to configure the router using the wireless connection! Connect it with a cable for configuration, then you can disconnect it once you get it all configured.
Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

I am usually pretty savvy with networking but this one really has got me. I have searched all over teh Intarwebs with no success solving it.

Basically, here's the issue. I'm in Mexico, and I want to set up a VPN (specifically HideMyAss, HMA) so that I can use my Roku and generally stream things from the United States.

TELMEX has given me a Alcatel-Lucent I-240w-q router which connects to the fiber line they have run to my house.

Separately, I bought a ASUS RT-N16 wifi router because that is the one that HMA says can be programmed to be the central "tunnel" into their VPN. I upgraded the RT-N16 firmware to DD-WRT's most recent build.

I have access to the config sections of both routers so I can modify their settings at will.

So what I need to do is connect the Alcatel router to the Asus router in such a way as I can use the Asus router as the primary access to the Internet (I wanted to set this up BEFORE I get the HMA subscription so that I could confirm it worked before I shell out for HMA).

I would deeply appreciate any assistance at all in setting things up so it goes through.
 

A:Connecting fiber modem to wifi router

You'll need to check with Roku as to whether this is a violation of the terms of service. Based on what I'm seeing, Roku has specific appliances for different countries. I can easily see that what you're doing by accessing US programming from Mexico is a violation of the terms of service; more specifically the programming owners will probably have issues with streaming to foreign countries.

hello i have added a second router to my network in a second building at my location.
my dsl comes in and into my first router which is the dhcp server for the network in both buildings.
the ip address of the first router is 192.168.1.1 and works fine with all computers online.
i added a second router to help the network and have made the ip address of the second router 192.168.3.1 and all computers in the second building behind the second router are online and working fine.
my problem is on one of my computers in the first building has my quickbooks file and all the computers on the second router cannot see the computer that has the files in the network neighborhood. before adding the second router all computers in both buildings were visible and shared and all had access to all computers
how can i get the computers in the second building behind the second router map to the computers on the first router?

DSL - Router(192.168.1.1)- 4 computers online ------ second router (192.168.3.1) - 9 computers online

I have a home network that is up and running. It consists of a cable modem, a non-wireless router and two computers.

My cable provider provides me with two DHCP IP addresses that are pingable on the Internet.

I would like to connect a second router to my network and give it the second DHCP IP address that my Internet providers gives me.

How would I do that?

Thank you

Hi,

I have a network that has a broadband cisco router and checkpoint firewall that I cannot touch. It was set up by our dept of Education, and has to be left alone. But one of the teachers has asked me to set up wifi access for the network.

I have set up a wireless access point D-link DWL-G700AP , and I can configure this assign IP addresses on the network, BUT I have to manually set the DNS and the gateway on the clients manually. The whole idea is to make this oblivious to the user.

Is there any device that I can get to act as a DHCP relay, to forward the DHCP broadcasts to the checkpoint firewall, i.e. so that both wired and wireless clients get their IP address, gateway and DNS servers from the checkpoint firewall.

thanks,
Jonathan

Currently I have two routers on my network with one of them being a wireless router.
I have a connection from my modem going into my linksys wireless router. I have 4 laptops connected wirelessly to that router. I have a connection from the wireless router running through the floor to the basement and it is connected to the WAN port on a wired linksys router. My desktop computer is connected to the wired router.
The IP Address for my wireless router is 192.168.1.1
The IP Address for my wired router is 192.168.2.1
My desktop, through the wired router connects to the internet just fine.

Here is where it gets different. I have an old D-Link wireless router with a built in print server. I would like to add this to my network and have my printer plugged into it so that it is much easier to print to one printer from all the connected computers. I tried just putting a connection from one of the LAN ports on the wired router to the WAN port on the D-Link and changing the IP address on the D-Link to 192.168.2.2. (I did this by plugging a connection from an LAN port on the D-Link to the NIC on my laptop.) I was unable to send a successful print job to the printer from any of the computers, except from the laptop directly connected to the D-Link. Beyond changing the IP address on the D-Link I did not change any other settings on that router, and did not setup the wireless part of it, because I don't want to connect to it wirelessly (but maybe I have to?)

Any ideas?
Thanks

Hi, I have a wireless network which currently works fine, but is limited in range. I want to extend this upstairs where I also have a desktop with no wireless card.

The current network uses a Linksys wireless G - WRV54G router. I can use a laptop or desktop1 to connect to this with no problem, wired or wireless, apart from the limited range.

My second router is a Buffalo turbo G WHR-G54S.
This is positioned in range of the other router, and is connected via wire to desktop2.

I have read various threads and searched the internet but haven't cracked the problem yet.
The IP address of router1 is 192.168.1.1 with the DCHP range 192.168.1.100-254
Gateway to the modem: 10.0.0.2

So, on router2, There is a switch on the router auto/bridge, it is now in bridge mode
I have set the IP address to 192.168.1.2.
Channel is set to 11, same as router 1.

I am unsure what to do further than this.

If it helps, both desktops are running vista, and both laptops XP pro.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I have a Cable/DSL connection at home and my TrendNet router was connected to the cable modem. I had three computers in a wired local area network. Recently I bought a Toshiba notebook and a Belkin Wireless G router. Since two computers are desktop and other two are notebook I want to add the router to the local area network in such way that all of them remain in the same network I (because of the file and printer sharing) and I want my notebooks to be able to connect to the router using wireless connection.

I spent two days trying to setup the local network but I never managed to configure it the way I want it to be. Two scenarios happened.

In the first scenario, my desktop computers had 192.168.1.xxx addresses, and my notebooks had some strange address and subnet when connected using wireless and they couldn't use neither local network nor internet. When I connected them to the router using wire they also had the 192.168.1.xxx address and worked fine.

In the second scenario, I managed to connect my notebooks to the router using wireless connection but in that case they had the 192.168.2.xxx addresses and cannot see my two desktop computers as a part of the Windows network. Ping works fine and I can access desktop computers using \\192.168.1.xxx from the Run dialog. But none of the desktop computers could either ping or access any of the notebooks.

Can anyone help me solve the problem?

Thank you in advance.

A:Problem with adding a second router to the network

OK, just to confirm, your using your TrendNet router AND your Belkin wireless router?

Assuming both are for DSL connections, is there any reason why you need to use two routers?

If your TrendNet router isn't wireless, then remove it completely, and use the Belkin one that is.

If you must use both, then you need to configure the Belkin router as a wireless access point and network switch only, and disable DHCP and UPNP in that router.

So the following should see you sorted:

1. connect the Belkin router to your TrendNet one via ethernet cable.
2. Do a hard reset of your Belkin router (so you have a clean base to set it up)
3. Log into the router, and then disable DHCP
4. Disable UPNP.
5. Set up wireless as usual.

This is usually enough to setup a router as an access point. Some models need slightly different procedures though. You do NOT want DHCP or UPNP enabled on the Belkin router though. You want your TrendNet router to assign IP addresses from its IP address pool to devices connected to your Belkin router by either wired, or wireless connections.

Hi,

I have a Fiber Optic connection at home, where the Fiber Optic modem is connected to my WiFi router. The problem is that in order to connect to the Internet, I have to first connect to the WiFi (WPA2) and then dial-in via PPPoE into the Internet. I provide the ISP username and password in the second step.

I am using Windows 7, and have created the PPPoE connection as shown in the attached screenshots.

I have to connect to this PPPoE every time I need to connect to the Internet. I have had to configure this on all my laptops, and have to connect using each individual machine where I need an Internet connection. This is a big pain, as you can imagine. Further, I want to connect my Nexus One to the home WiFi Internet connection, but since it doesn't have PPPoE support, I can't do this.

I went to my router settings (3Com 3CRWDR200A-75), and found something that seemed promising. In the Internet Settings section, I saw a place to provide the PPPoE username and password.

However, this hasn't helped. I still have to connect using the PPPoE connection in Windows

Does anybody have any ideas/tips? Any help would be appreciated, as this is getting frustrating.

Cheers,
Wild Thing
 

A:Configuring PPPoE on my WiFi router instead of my Fiber Optic modem

Since you're connecting from the router you can probably delete the PPOE connection from Windows.

Hey everyone,
I'd really appreciate any help you guys can give on the issue...I'm at my wits end at this point...

So anyway, about a month ago my old 2wire modem pretty much kicked the bucket for good (after about 4 years of more or less dedicated service with the occasional hiccup here and there, I was kind of saddened yet relieved) and I was left without internet for a few days. I contacted my ISP with the issue, and after a bunch of failed restart attempts on their end (I told them the damn thing was dead already, but they were insistent on making sure I wasn't bs'ing them) they finally relented and decided to send me their new Pace 4111n router/modem.

A few days later, low and behold, I had a new Pace and guess what? IT HAD WIFI!!

The reason why this came as such an interesting surprise was because my old 2Wire that my ISP had originally provided us with was simply a modem with no router/wifi capabilities on it. In order to bypass the lack of Wifi, I had to purchase a Netgear N300 router and had it hooked up to the 2Wire for years with no connectivity issues.
Anyway, with the new Pace in hand, I put my old Netgear away and plugged the new baby in....and here is where things kinda went downhill....
Now...my old set up was kinda strange...I used to have the 2Wire modem hooked up to the Netgear router and in between had a Grandstream HT502 Voip phone adapter plugged in (we have the need in my household for long distance phone service, and in order to ... Read more

I also have a laptop, with a wireless card. I want to use the laptop throughout the house. I just inherited a D-Link DI-524 wireless router. Will the wireless router work if I connect it to one of the vacant ports on the wired router, rather than directly to the cable modem?

RELEVANCY SCORE 60.4

We've got an existing wired network, and have just bought a wifi router to hopefully add wireless connectivity to what we've already got set up.

I don't want to replace the existing router if I don't have to, in the past I set up a server in-house, and don't want to have to go through the setup of that again and risk screwing it up!

Anyway, I've looked online, and tried a couple of things:

Setting the wifi router's IP to one within the range of the existing network, with a unique number on the end (192.168.1.99). This allowed wireless connection to the network, but not to the internet connection

Then (following a guide I found online) set the IP to one outside of the range of the current network (192.168.0.1), and simply 'disabled the DHCP'. This now allows wifi connection to the internet, but not the network!

Is there any way of setting up wireless connection to the existing setup, both the network and the internet??

Go easy on me, I'm not familiar with too many of the technical terms!
What, for example, is a network bridge??
 

A:Adding a wireless router to our existing network

Sorry- figured it out!!!

If setting the IP address to within the range enabled internet, and setting it outside the range but disabling DHCP allowed network access, I combined the two and set the IP address back to one within our current network range, but with DHCP still disabled. Bingo! Wireless connection to both the network and the net!
