connecting MikroTik Routerboard too wireless router

Q: connecting MikroTik Routerboard too wireless router

Its impossible for me to get an internet connection where I live. And I am using the landlords wireless router (with his permission) connecting via a wireless dongle. But this is very prone to dropping as his house is a long way away. So I want the use a MikroTik Routerboard 153 http://www.aerial.net/shop/product_i...roducts_id=270
To connect that I was using at a previous address on a WAN service
I have managed to get the Mikro Tik Router logged onto the landlords wireless router and from Winbox the control program for the Micro Tik and from a command prompt can ping it successfully.

However I cannot get out onto the internet or any one have any suggestions as to what might be the problem

I am using windows 7 home premium

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Although your landlord may have given you permission to connect to their router, it is very likely that their Internet Service Provider does not allow them to share their Internet connection outside of family members and visitors to their household. The service provider may cancel the landlord's service should they find out about them sharing it outside of their own household.

Hello,

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.

So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance
 

A:Slow wireless after connecting Linkys wirless router to Linksys wired router

Have you made sure you have the latest firmware for the wireless router? If you updated the firmware be sure to reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

What speeds do you get with a test such as speedtest.net with a connection to the wired router? With an ethernet connection to the wireless router? With a wireless connection?

I have been trying to find a way to connect, forward the signal, recieve the signal from my Verizon Fios wireless router up to my WGT624 V3 Netgear router.

Is there a way that I can modify my wirless port on my Netgear to recieve a signal wirelessly from my Verizon Wireless router?

My Neighbor did it once with another wireless router, but he can not remember how he did it. I am thinking it had something to do with the Firmware.

If anyone can help me with this that would be great.

I'm basically trying to push the wireless signal from my Verizon router in my basement, up to my wireless Netgear router which is recieving the signal on the main level so that I can plug my wired (non wireless) laptop into the ethernet port which is receiving wireless signal from the Verizon router in the basement in order to gain access to the internet.

Can this be done with the equipment listed above and or some additional firmware and configuration?

Thank you for all your assistance on this in advance.

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

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.

I am a novice when it comes to networking so please help me out...
I am connecting Netgear wireless router (wgr614 v5) to an already placed router on the network (Nortel Networks Router). I am having trouble with wireless router because the Nortel router is DHCP disabled. Please if someone could help me, I would greatly appreciate. Please, explain step by step how to configure the wireless router to work with Nortel router.

P.S. The Nortel router cannot be DHCP enabled...I have DSL coming to Nortel router. So, Nortel is the primary router. Nortel router can't be removed because it is required by my company that I use it to connect to their network over the internet.

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.

This is frustrating lol.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to use a router to establish a wireless connection with a machine running XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2. I've connected successfully in the past with other machines (including now, as I write this), so it doesn't seem to be the router or the modem that's the problem. What's more, it's not XP, since there's another machine that can connect fine.

So, I'm stumped. I've contacted both my ISP and the manufacturer of the router, but not much help there.

Any thoughts? The machine sees the wireless connection fine, will attempt to connect and will actually say that it was successful in connection -- but there's no access to the internet and the status is actually limited or no connectivity.

Hello Guys,

I am having trouble with my wireless connection. It was working fine till a couple of days back and then started acting up. Let me explain the problem in detail.

System connects to the router. It shows full signal. After 10-15 seconds the wireless gets disconnected. After that the behaviour is quite varied. Sometimes the router itself is not recongnized. Sometimes the router is recognized but the system doesnt connect. If I force it to then it again says cannot connect to a hidden network. After a while maybe 4-5 mins later it recongnizes and tries connecting again sometimes it succeeds sometimes it doesnt.

My System Specifications are given below.

1. Samsung Ultrabook Series S - Model NP530U3C-A01UK
2. Processsor - Intel COre 5-3317U CPU @1.70 Ghz
3. Windows 7 Hope Premium - 64 Bit OS
4. Wireless Network Adaptor - Intel Centrino Advaced N-6235
5. ROuter - Thomson
6. 6GB RAM

A Little bit about my Home network
There are 5 devices connected usually. My Wife's PC which is a Dell Inspiron and runs on Windows 7 Home premium, My Ipad, 2 of our Smart Phones and My PC. Every other device currently works fine except mine. So looks like the problem is with my system rather than the router or network provider.

Remedies I have tried and failed
1. Updated the Network Driver by downloading and installing it from Intel Website

A:Connecting to Wireless Router keeps connecting and disconnecting

I hate to say it, but since you have done everything I would have done, its possible the wireless adapter is broken/not functioning correctly. Is the product still under warranty? Especially since you stated that other devices connect just fine.
So its probably not the router.
The only other thing I can think of to try would be to buy another wireless router and test it with that.
If you have no problems, something is amiss.
You could also set your router back to factory defaults and try again.

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?

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

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? I've never setup a wireless network before so I'm a little new to this subject.

Hi everyone: Iím having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Iím posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I canít even connect to the router setup IP address 192.168.0.1)?

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine.

I just purchased a wireless router (Linksys) to set up as a wireless access point connected via an ethernet cable to another Linksys wireless router that is connected to my DSL modem. I know I need to connect LAN port to LAN port, but do I need a "straight through" or a "switched/crossover" cable? As I have done some reading, some directions say straight, others say switched, some don't say at all. I just want to be sure I don't have a cabling issue. Thanks in advance for any information.

Well, a crossover cable will certainly work. If either end of the routers have auto-MDX ports, a straight patch cable will work as well.

Hi all,

My Netopia Router from SBC just crapped out on me early last week. So I decided to buy a router from a local electronics store. I already had a SpeedStream Modem, but I have multiple PCs in the house, so I need to 'route' the connection to other PCs.

Anywho, I went to the store today and picked up a Linksys DSL/Cable Router (Wired) with 4 port switch (#BEFSR41). I hooked it up, followed the CD Wizard, and plugged in the 2 PCs on this level (I have 3 Levels in my house). The PCs on this level worked.

Now, I have a D-Link wireless router since there are wireless notebooks/PCs upstairs. Before I had the Linksys, I just plugged that router into my Netopia and it worked fine. Now when I plugged it into this new Linksys router, it doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong?

All PCs are running Win XP if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance.

Pretty standard...But now we want a laptop and another desktop on our top floor because someone else moved in. LUCKILY before we finished the basement I had another ethernet cable going from the router to the Wii on the main floor. We don't play that anymore so I was wondering if it was possible to buy a wireless router for the main floor, connect it wired to the basement router, and than use it wirelessly so that it extends to the top floor? Meanwhile, the router in the basement still connects to the two computers? It'd look like this.

basement floor

Main floor/ground floor

Hi there

Right, I really need some help here - I thought I had done this correctly but clearly not as it still doesn't work

Info
Basically, I got my sister a wireless router, and purchased a big antenna for her to take up to Uni, as she has rented a house with loads of friends, and it's massive with very thick walls.

Luckily, the router and modifications mean she can access it all round the house (although she has had to put a long cat 5 cable in to put it on the middle floor).

When she finally got round to purchasing internet (from "Be") they sent her a wireless ADSL modem / router.


Here is the problem:
The router they sent doesn't have the range needed in my sisters house.
The router I gave her doesn't have an ADSL modem.
They also don't have a telephone cable going to the middle floor, only cat 5.

How can I connect the two routers together?
I know it's possible by turning off DHCP etc from the second router, but it doesn't seem to be working.

More info:
Router "A" is the ADSL modem/ wireless router they provided.
Router "B" is a Kcorp KLG-575 - pdf manual can be found: here

Hi all

This is my first post and I would like some advice and for someone to tell me if what I want to do is indeed possible.
I would like to connect a wireless access point (placed upstairs) to my wireless belkin router (placed in downstairs living room). I want to place the wireless access point upstairs then connect a switch to this with an ethernet cable. I will then be connecting a blu-ray player, tv and xbox console via the switch to the wireless access point. I'm hoping this will also increase the wireless signal in the attic which would be a bonus but not hugely important. I want to connect everything upstairs wirelessly because trailing a long ethernet cable through the house isn't possible, which is why i'm thinking of this set up. I'm thinking of using either the TP-Link TL-WA801ND or the Edimax EW-7416APN because these seem reasonably priced with good reviews.

If any one can tell me if this sounds correct and if it will work before I go out and buy the gear that would be great. Many thanks for any help in advance!
 

A:Connecting wireless router to wireless access point

Sounds like you want a Wireless Bridge (or AP Client). If you get a decent signal in the desired location and the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it should work fine. I use one (now discontinued, so I won't recommend it) myself for a camera whose integrated wireless no longer works.

I'm hoping this will also increase the wireless signal in the atticClick to expand...

That requires Repeater (or Range Extender) mode. If the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it will (I'm pretty sure) also include this mode. I understand that some units can do both jobs (wireless bridge and repeater) at the same time.

I didn't look at the specs or manuals for the units you mentioned; just indicating what you should be looking for.

Hi All,

Firstly to set the scene am compuer literate having been a programmer for some years but networking not my strong point.

Am trying to create a small network at home. I have the following:

Laptop
PC
Linksys wireless router (LinksysWRT54GS)
Wireless dongle (chinese thing from airtel Zambia Africa where I am)

I want to connect the Laptop and the PC together via the Linksys router and for the laptop and PC to go on to the internet via the router to the internet dongle and out.

The key is that I have to link the Linksys router to the dongle via wireless as there are no other ways to connect them.

The wireless dongle has the following setup that I cant change:
Its IP is 192.168.1.1
It dishes out IP addresses starting at 192.168.1.101

The Linksys wireless router is as follows but obviously these can be changed:
Its IP is 192.168.1.4
It also dishes out IP addresses starting at 192.168.1.101

I can find plenty of examples where the Linksys is connected to a modem via a cable but not via wireless. Also can I actually do what I am trying to do?

thanks

Ivor

Hello,

My room mate and I have a Linksys wireless router connected to our cable modem. He can access the Internet on his laptop through the router, but I'm having trouble connnecting on my desktop (windows XP). I have a TRENDnet TEW-424UB wireless USB adaptor, and it's fully installed, but I have no idea how to get it to connect through the router. The setup didn't walk me through anything beyond installing the USB adaptor, and I'm entirely new to using wireless connections. I don't even know where to start.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Lieskens, and welcome to TSG.

Did you get a printed User Guide with the adapter or a PDF file for the User Guideon a CD? If not, there is a download link for an Adobe Acrobat PDF file on the Trendnet web site:

http://www.trendnet.com/downloads/list_subcategory.asp?SUBTYPE_ID=1155

The guide seems include the set-up procedure for establishing a connection. You will need to know the Wireless SSID of the router and any encryption key being used.

I just had charter install a wireless cable modem into my house and it was put in my study. however, i would now like to get my xbox 360 running as well as the internet for my blue-ray player and tv. So i bought a wireless router.

The modem from charter is called: Ubee wireless cable modem (from charter)
The wireless router purchases is: Netgear N300 wireless router (wnr2000v3)

I am trying to connect them wirelessly. Like I said above, my modem is in the study and the router is about 30 feet away in the living room area. Is there any way to connect those?

Thanks!

Yes, best and maybe only way is by ethernet cable--LAN to LAN port if you want everything on the same local network.

Does the router have a Wireless Bridge (or AP Client) mode? If not, if it has an AP mode there is a small chance you may still accomplish it.

Hello,

Im trying to find out if a network combination is possible with the particular hardware I have at the moment.

I have looked thourgh other threads but could not find exactly this.

The hardware I have is : Hawking HWBA54g wireless bridge and a linksys WRT54G2 V1 router

I have the Hawking bridge setup picking up a wireless network from the hanger across from it, it picks this up fine and I can plug a wired connection and use the net.

What I want to do is plug the WRT54G Router into the Bridge to broadcast the connection wirelessly in that hanger.

Is this possible with the hardware I have?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou
 

A:Connecting a wireless Router to A wireless bridge

I don't see why not. You should be able to simply plug them together. If the remote wireless network has the same 192.168.1.x base address as your Linksys, you will have to configure the Linksys to a different base address, say 192.168.2.1. You obviously also want the channel of the Linksys as far away from the bridge channel as possible to minimize crosstalk.

Hi. Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this topic but I felt it was the right place.
Basically, my computer needed a new PCI network card but my only local PC shop didnt have any so i bought a wireless router instead. I can't get this router working though.

I thought that I could just plug an ethernet cable from the wireless router into my PC which are both in my bedroom, then run the install CD and connect to the wireless modem router downstairs. I always connected to the wireless modem router downstairs with my network card but when I try to run the install CD for the router it says -

"The ethernet adapter is either disabled or no ethernet adapter is installed on this computer. Either enable or add an ethernet adapter and run the application again."

The model of the wireless router is 'Netgear N150 wireless router'. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I dont want the money I spent to go to waste. :P

Thanks in advance.

A:Connecting Wireless Router

So you got two wireless routers and trying to connect the wireless router downstairs (which is connected to the internet) wirelessly to the other wireless router?

If thats the case, the routers must have a feature called Range Extender or atleast the one ur trying to connect to the one with internet. As typically you use a wireless access point in place of your 2nd router. Most routers do not have this feature. some do some don't. Ill check to see if your new router does allow this feature.

Correct me if im wrong. About what your trying to do.

A:connecting 2 wireless router

JohnWill's procedure for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router 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.

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.

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!

Quick intro...

This is for my parents house. They have high-speed net that can only be registered to one computer, so running it to a router and then computers is not an option. We used to have it setup with net into "computer 1" then out to the wireless router. The new computer has only one ethernet port, so this can no longer be accomplished without buying another card, which I am very inclined to do. They are getting another computer that will also have Windows 7 and would like to get wireless working again, so...

1) I've tried an ad-hoc connection. I understand the concept and had it working for awhile but found it to be "finiky." I would always have to restart the connection everytime I wanted to use it. I couldn't get it to "stick." Did I maybe do something wrong or is there no way to keep the net connection open? I "saved" the network and set it to start automatically, but it would always close the internet sharing.

2) I haven't messed with home group...will this feature accomplish internet sharing easily??...without messing with any ad-hoc crap? I need everything as simple as possible, so if they have any problems I can fix it over the phone or they can figure everything out for themselves.

Like I said, worst comes to worst, I'll get them another ethernet and run it the old way...was just hoping I could simplify things and save some money.

Any help would be appreciated!

A:trouble connecting with wireless router

Ethernet cord from your modem to the "Internet" or "Uplink" port on the Linksys router should be the only connection you'll need if you're using it wirelessly; with the exception of the power cables, of course. ^__^

You can find your LAN IP by opening a command prompt (assuming you're using Windows) and typing "ipconfig/all" (without the quotes).

You can find your WAN IP by accessing your router's internal configuration pages. If you have the documentation that came with the router it should tell you how to access those. If not, once you get online you can find the user guides on Linksys' website for your model.

Hello,

Apologize in advance I'm not that tech-savvy, but I am having a lot of problems with my wireless connection. My internet was running perfectly fine for the first 6-9 months, but recently has deteriorated to a mess (keeps getting booted on and off or slows to the point where it's virtually unusable). It seems to be the worst on weeknights and weekends.<removed by moderator - etaf>, and I'm near tears in frustration-- please help!

For reference, I am running a Windows 7 machine, connecting wirelessly through a Netgear WNR1000 router. When connected to the router using an ethernet cable, it works perfectly fine. There is another wired device which works fine, so it's mainly the wifi connection. For my Windows 7 PC, the wireless cuts in and out (working fine now), and oftentimes drops me. I have to reset the router/modem multiple times just to be able to use it. My roommate who also has a wireless PC also has problems connecting wirelessly as well. Currently, I have IPV4 connectivity, but no IPV6 connectivity.

I also have another router when I tested (a Medialink router), and it also has very intermittent connectivity-- so I'm skeptical it's a hardware issue. My NETGEAR firmware is up to date.
