Preferred Solution: Connect a Wireless Modem to ADSL modem for Wifi

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: Connect a Wireless Modem to ADSL modem for Wifi

The "nokia siemens SL2_141" is a modem/wireless router combo; I assume that "A Wireless Modem of MTS" is also a modem/wireless router combo.

If my assumption is correct you can use the Nokia as an ethernet switch and wireless access point ...

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" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

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

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

Hi~not been on here for a while (took me an age to remember log in etc!) which is a good sign as everything has been ticking along quite merrily...then I thought I would catch up with 21st century and the fun began
Ok~I have just purchased a 'Belkin ADSL modem with wireless G router and wireless G usb network adapter', was so proud of myself until I wanted to intall it etc.
It would seem that I have the wrong modem~I presently have an ADSL speedtouch which has a fixed connection into it so am unable to use etheral wire. (I've confused myself already!)
I have an old 105 Voyager that I was given when I was with BT but it won't let me install it, even using disk I still have (tried it on notebook laptop too~keeps telling me I don't have administrator rights blah blah blah).
I am currently getting my broadband from Orange~If I upgrade with them they want to charge me a small fortune initially and then monthly which I have told them to poke!

*Is there anyway of using present speedtouch with belkin wireless?
*If not, if I purchase an ADSL modem (without a fixed connection!) what do I need to do then!? Uninstall speedtouch-install new modem? But will my Orange broadband still work if internet connection not 'coming through' Orange provided speedtouch?
*If need to buy different modem, where is the cheapest/best/easiest place for me to go either on foot or online?

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

Hi, my friend is in Japan, and he's signed up for NTT's ADSL service, They say he can 'rent' a modem, but he would need to get a router too if he wishes to use more computers. However he doesn't want a 'multi-box' solution, he wants it in 1 box (like in other countries), a combination ADSL Router/Modem with Wifi. However, he cannot buy them in a few computer stores he has visited. I am visiting him soon, and we're trying to understand if I bring over an ADSL router, if that would work.. I know about the power limitations, but that aside, can it work?

ps. Thinking of bringing something like the following models ( I will purchase once I know for sure )...
Netgear DG834GT 108Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem
Belkin ADSL Modem with Built-in 125g Wireless Router
Linksys by Cisco WAG54GS Wireless-G ADSL Modem Router

pps. I see a lot of modems listed on Amazon with ADSL2, I don't think they have ADSL2 in Japan (according to wikipedia), would ADSL2 modem work with ADSL.?

MANY MANY Thanks if anyone can answer this

My Motorola SBG901 Modem/Router combo has stopped connecting to the internet. I have done all the troubleshooting with Comcast and with Motorola and it is out of warranty, so I will have to purchase a new one.

In the mean time, I wanted to use it only as a wireless router connected to my Scientific Atlanta DPC2100R2 modem. Is there any way to do this? Is there a way to disable the modem in the SBG901?

Simply connecting with the ethernet cords has not worked. I connected the DPC2100 to the SBG901 via ethernet cord. My computer was able to pick up a wireless connection but there is no cable connection. I am using Windows 7.

Hello everyone,
I'm trying to achieve something which I think most might not have tried,
starting with what I have

1.Type 2 adsl2+ cpe/iad modem-It has built in wifi.
2.A fiber internet connection.
3.A samsung smart tv with built in lan adapter (40 inch LED-no wifi but wifi ready)

Now the modem which I have mentioned above cannot be used with the fiber internet connection.So,it is just lying waste but I want to use my internet connection provided by my ISP through fiber connection with the modem so that I can use my modem's wifi and lan ports.

What I have done was connected my laptop to my modem's wifi and also to my ISP's fiber connection so my laptop is connected to both the networks and now I have tried to establish a bridge connection between the lan connection and the wifi connection I was successful and I was also able to share my internet connection(as shown in my laptop) but when I have checked for the wifi internet connection it is not there(Checked on my mobile-one x and ipad).

So is there any way so that I can do this...??Please don't suggest me to use a application like connectify or virtual router to share my fiber internet connection.

A:How to use a ADSL modem's wifi with a fiber connection.

the answer is YES

you piggy-back the router onto the fibre modem, you can do this if

a) the fibre modem has a LAN port (which it will have)
b) the fibre modem allows its IP range to be changed
c) the spare router allows DHCP to be disabled
d) the spare router allows its LAN IP Address to be changed

if yes to all 4 then you can do this.

you simply shorten the Fibre Modems LAN Range by 1,
e.g. (assuming your Fibre Modem is on 192.168.0.1) change 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.254 to 192.168.0.3 - 192.168.0.254
as the device is on 0.1 and the rest of the range starts from 0.3 to 0.254 , this leaves 0.2 for the 2nd router to use...

(if your fibre modem is on 192.168.1.254 and range is 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.253 then follow suit by changing the 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2 and using the 192.168.1.1 for the 2nd router)

now once you done the above in the fibre modem you can turn off any wi-fi in the fibre modem ...assuming it has any.

now unplug the fibre modem and plug in the 2nd router, log in, disable DHCP and set its LAN IP Address (not the range) to the address you free'd up previously... e.g. 192.168.0.2 (or 192.168.1.1) then apply & save - you will now use that IP Address to access this router instead of 192.168.0.1

now with both unplugged and powered down/off, plug in the Fibre Modem and turn it on, give it time to connect to internet, then plug a LAN cable from one of its LAN ports to any of the 2nd routers LAN ports, plug in and turn on the 2nd router and wait fo... Read more

First up, I apologise if I've posted this in the wrong place.

Ok, so problem I'm having is as follows:

I have 1 computer running XP Home SP2, connected to this machine is a Dlink Dl-624+ Airplus G+ wireless router (the intent is to wirelessly connect my 2nd machine which is running XPpro SP2 when I've finished putting it together) and connected to the router is a Sweex ADSL Annex-A modem. Now, the machine this is all connected to recognises the ethernet connections as displayed by the LAN icon, and the router and modem seem to be talking to each other as indicated by the lights on each module. But, when attempting to connect to my ISP (Onetel) the modem indicates that it is only getting as far as the "handshake" while trying to connect, and continues to do this all the time. I've checked all the cabling and everything seems to be in order, and I've gone through all of the hardware manuals at least 5 times so far to check that I've followed the manufactorers instructions to the letter.

My question is: Have I been dumb and inputed some information incorrectly, or is there something wrong with hardware, or... is this a problem on the ISP's end??

Oh, I'm asking you guys here before I've talked to the ISP tech support people to try and avoid long winded, costly, telephone calls (as cynical as that may be). I hope some one out there feels smarter than I do right now and can help.

Thanks in advance... Dweller

A:ADSL modem wont connect to ISP...

Check the DI-624 configuration.

Are you sure you have configured the DI-624 correctly? The routers setup wizard will step you through the basics. You should make sure that you have DHCP server set and your XP Home PC is getting a valid IP address from the router. With the DI-624 this address will be in the range 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199 (the default).

You might also try a ping test from the routers setup page "Tools/Misc". If you have a good ISP connection you should be able to ping your ISP successfully?

I believe cable providers usually use dynamic IP addresses. Has your router been correctly set up for this and did you specify valid primary and secondary DNS addresses, as provided by you cable provider?

A:How to change the Wifi password of an ADSL modem without a computer

I dont think you mean modem; but router rather. Is that right? Because usually modems themselves dont have passwords; but routers do. If its the router you want to change the password for; you should be able to use any device that has web access to access the web configuration page for the router and in there it should have a section where you can change the passphrase/password.

A:How to change the Wifi password of an ADSL modem without a computer

Hello abbasi ,
You can use your iPhone to log in the router and change the wireless settings, however this isn't usually recommended. If something goes wrong when configuring the wireless settings and you are not able to connect to the router you'll need a device that can be connected via Ethernet cable to restore the access.
If this router is supplied by your ISP you can ask them if they have remote access to it to change the password.
Hope that helps.

A friend of mine has a broadband account with AOL. The computer works fine if the modem AOL supplied is used, however they wanted to go wireless so that the second computer they have could access AOL if the other one was offline.
The computers can 'talk' to each other via the wireless but the modem bit of the adsl wireless modem/router does not seem able to connect with AOL for either computer. This appears to be a problem with the set up of the modem which is a fairly standard Newlink. The set up menu has a specific AOL button which configures the modem to AOL's settings but nothing happens afterwards.
They are tearing their hair out and I am starting to do the same! Knowing my luck it will be something so obvious I haven't thought of it.

hello all ... i have just today purchased the above modem/router .. probelem is i just cant get it working or recognised by my PC ... even odder was that when i checked my network connections there is no Local Area Connection listed there

In order to connect the modem/router the instructions say to open internet explorer and go to 192.168.2.1 and follow the intructions on screen, but i cant do this as it simply tries to open my old ADSL Connection and get on the internet that way -which icant as it is disconnected due to the new one being plugged in - whereas it should just automatically go to the welcome page for the installation of this modem. I did try on my laptop and initially it found the unsecure connection but then didnt again after that when i tried to set it up primarily on my laptop ... it just kept losing the connection and finding otehr secured connections in the area.

I am at my wits end with this one ... I have no idea what has happened to my ethernet controller on PC(it's not there in my network connections) and it's just not recognising the Belkin modem no matter what i do. Can anyone give me some pointers as to what i need to do? Any help would be much obliged ... and if any more info needed then dont hesitate to ask....

When I got back I tried everything, reset the router, refreshed the network search (it could see a neighbor's network but not mine), rebooted the laptop, nothing worked although one time the laptop saw the network and I clicked connect and after trying to connect it lost the network again and never reacquired.

Well, fast forward about three months and we decided it was time to purchase a new laptop, this one comes w/ built-in WiFi. I hoped that this might solve the wireless problem but I am experiencing the same problem. The WiFi is enabled on the router and the laptop, the correct channel is selected on both computers (default of 1), to my knowledge I have absolutely no security selected on the router at this time (it is configured with all the factory defaults). I have troubleshot my laptop as well and it believes the router is the cause.

okay....
I have 2 computers. My main computer is connected to a belkin ADSL modem with built in 802.11g wireless router via ethernet (which i communicate and change settings via my web browser).

The other computer (no.2) has a wireless network card installed and working fine.

I had it all connected to a point where i could access the internet on both comuters but not share files, and i could communicate with the router.

So i tried some trickery to get this file share to work. this involved messing about with the "file and print sharing for microsoft networks" and "clients for microsoft networks", installing clients and service, in the local area connection

When i did this, i found that i could no longer communicate with the router via my web browser and not access the internet.

I also noticed that under my TCP/IP settings in address type, my connection was an "automatic private address" instead of "assigned DHCP".

I thought this would be the problem. so i scouted around the web to find answers and found things like using ipconfig (via cmd in the run command). but no luck. got message like "cannot contact DHCP".

I tried reinstalling but no luck........WHAT CAN I DO???????/
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
 

A:Help with ADSL modem with built in 802.11g wireless router

Post the ipconfig output of both computers. And what exactly did you do in network settings?

"Automatic private address" means that Windows was unable to connect the DHCP server (the router) to obtain an IP address. You should always turn on the router before turning on the PCs. Or assign static IP addresses to your machines.

Iím trying to install a domestic network with an ADSL Modem and a Wireless Router and I canít get connected to the Internet.

Configuration:
ADSL Modem connected to the telephone line.
Wireless Router connected to the Modem.
Two PCs Windows XP connected to the Router (Ethernet 10/100).
Laptop Centrino Windows XP Tablet PC connected to the Router (wireless).

With this configuration I succeed linking the 3 computers sharing files but no one get connected to the internet (however, if I link them directly to the Modem I get the Internet, including the laptop if I use its Ethernet door).

It seems to me that the problem is in the Wireless Router configuration. I tried to configure it like the Modem, with no success. I also tried without any configuration and no success either.

Could someone kindly tell me what Iím doing wrong?

The material:

Hi Guys,

I wonder if anyone can give me some advice please.

I have just had ADSL broadband enabled at our new home but the modem supplied by the provider is a USB modem. Heres the rub, I do not wish to have to trail cable throughout the house to use the internet, The only phone point is in one room, the main desktop is in another, and the laptop wherever.

Is it possible, if I purchase a wireless modem, to set it up in one room unconnected to a computer and access the internet wirelessly from the desktop pc and the laptop from whichever room they are in?
I presume initially that I would have to use the laptop to set-up, but would I then be able to remove the laptop and still have the connection?

I already have a Belkin wireless router from our previous home but there is no USB port on it and I cannot locate any means to convert from USB to RJ45, presumably because of the power requirements of USB.

Anyone any clues on this?

Any help/advice greatly appreciated

Thanks
Keith

Hello to the incredibly helpful people who may be reading my post!

I have:

1 X Netgear ADSL2+ Modem DM111P
1 X 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless 11g Cable/DSL Gateway WL-525

I have used the wireless device previously with an Alcatel ADSL Speed Touch Modem using PPPOE no problem. Now I have the Netgear modem and i'm stuck with PPPOA.

Internet solely through the Netgear modem and my laptop works fine. Now I want to plug the 3Com wireless router into the Netgear modem but it's not working.

I plug the cables in all ok. So that the Netgear ethernet port plugs into the 3Com Ethernet/Cable/DSL port and I connect wirelessly or cabely to the 3Com.

I'm forced to use PPPOA bridged to connect and I can see that the 3Com is allocated a public IP address from my ISP. So i'm wondering why I can't surf the net!?

So to be clear, I can see/access the 3Com from my laptop, the laptop is getting an IP address through the modem using PPPOA bridged, but its not routing through.

I've tried manually configuring DNS on my laptop, but no luck.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be most interested in reading them!

cheers,
Ivan.

Hello all,
I recently purchased a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router with a single ADSL input and 4xRJ45 outputs. I have an old Belkin 54g Router at the moment and wanted to upgrade. Unfortunately when the item arrived I discovered that I had made a mistake as the router was for ADSL and not the Virgin cable modem. Before returning the item I would like to know if it is possible to convvert the RJ45 lead output from the cable mobem to the ADSL input of the router. I've had a look on forums and a lot of the answers seem to be way more complex but without answering this question.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

Someone please kindly guide me how to do ip settings for TP-Link Router.
But when I connect router directly to modem by bypassing switch, it works fine but not via switch. I have some restrictions due to which I have to strictly following this sort of connection: Modem -Switch - Router
Thanks.
 

A:IP Settings for ADSL Modem to Switch to Wireless Router

Sounds like a bad port on the switch, or else the switch and router's WAN port are not playing nice together.

Make sure it is not a switch port problem.

If it is not, try using the TP-Link router as just a switch and WAP, per this Library article. (Your "modem" is a modem/router combo.)

A:Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless-G Router WHAT IS ITS MAX INTERNET CONNECTION SPEED

There THe belkin modem/gateway shouldnt limit your speed capabilities. You should be able to find the speed listed inside the modem's status page. To do this..
Click start>run>In run type CMD
In the black window type IPCONFIG and then enter. Note down your default gateway.
Open a browser window and enter the gateway's address into it. Click go
This should take you to your gateways graphical user interface.
Look for a status tab or see if it lists connection speeds on the general page.

Also you can test speeds at different sites. Google search broadband speed test and choose 1 of the millions of sites

Hi,
I checked thru and found another thread with a similar problem, but while there were about 40 posts to it, it ended without really providing me a solution.
So heres my problem :
I HAD a Linksys Wireless Router (WRT54G) which worked fine to connect thru a ISP supplied basic ADSL modem (AZTECH). The Router would hold my login ID and password and automatically log me into my broadnband connection thru the PPPoE. And my Desktop connected to the router was able to connect fine to the Internet. HOwever, two nights ago, my ADSL Modem "died" and I went out and purchased another (ISP does not supply a replacement anymore). I got a Netgear DM602 ADSL Modem.

Now my problem is that the Netgrear modem is a little too smart and tries to be a router as well and also holds the login ID and password. If I connect the Modem directly to my Desktop, it works fine in that it will log in and allow my PC to connect to the Internet. However, if I just set it up as it used to be before - my Router states that it cannot get an IP Address off the ADSL modem and does not connect.

The old thread that stopped in August 2004, said that I had to set different IP addresses on the Router. My router has a default IP of 192.169.1.0 / 255.255.255.0 while the Netgear Modem goes with 192.168.0.1 / 255.255.255.0

I am sure I have to set something up like a hard code of a gateway or something, but for the life of me, I do not know on which equipment I need to do this. Do I have to turn off the DHC... Read more

A:DM602 ADSL Modem thru Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Problem

Hi,
Managed to work it out. Apparently the 'smart' Netgear DM602 has to have itself do the logging-in. While you can disable the logging into the ISP part, it wont work after that with any router. So, it has to be allowed to log in and be the DHCP Server.

My Linksys WRT54G Wireless router on the other hand is quite happy to allow the modem to log in, so I had to disable the PPPoE logging in aspect, and also disable it from assuming the DHCP responsibility and when they are connected up, all works well - in almost the factory default state of the LinkSys Router.

But all of this I learnt from LinkSys Customer support. And not from the wonderful people at NetGear, who refused to talk to me about how to get their product to work with a router. They did not tell me that disabling the PPPoE logging in sequence will not work on their DM602. They were pretty much not very helpful when it came to getting their product to work with anything else other than a PC. As soon as it tests ok with the PC, they wash their hands off you. Immediately !

My take, never again a NetGear product.

But LinkSys is GREAT !!!

Anyway, hope this helps someone.

Hello!

I have D-Link DSL 320T ADSL Modem and Belkin N+ Wireless Router.
The modem works great on its own connected to the network card in my laptop.
The problem starts when I connect it to the router (doesn't matter wired or wireless connection). The internet works but slower and sort of 'snaps' every few seconds. To give you an example, when I use skype the sound and picture freezes every few seconds or when I click on different websites in my browser, every few seconds I get the 'not connected to the interent' screen - I have to refresh and it loads fine.
All those problems dissapear when I connect the modem to the network card of my laptop.
I tried few things and this is what I found out:
1. When I switch the router into Access Point mode it works great (wired and wireless) as if it the modem was connected straight to my laptop - no snaps, skype works great.
2. It doesn't help when I turn the firewall off in the router
3. It doesn't help when the QoS option is enabled
4. The router is fine as it works great with cable modem

I think maybe there is something wrong because of DHCP option enabled in both devices.

Here is my ADSL Modem Config
DHCP ON
Starting IP 192.168.1.2
Ending IP 192.168.1.254
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

Here is my router config

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

I have a couple of iphones and a Nintendo Wii and we would like to connect them to the the laptops internet connection.

A:Unique Q: USB Huawei Wireless Modem to feed house via Belkin Wireless N Modem Router

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
