Connecting wireless router to ethernet coming out of a computer

Q: Connecting wireless router to ethernet coming out of a computer

I have read several solutions to similar problems but they do not work in my situation for some reason. (including the colledge dorm and router to router solutions)

MY SETUP
I am work on drilling rigs at remote locations way up North. As such my internet come to me via satellite. I do not have access to the modem (if you even call it that in this situation). All I have in my building is a wire called a "Pason Cable" that enters through the wall.

Only one computer on location has the necessary port on the back to connect to this cable. (window 2000 OS)

This computer then has a cable which I believe is called an eithernet cat 5 port with a cable coming out of it. We have always connected this to various wireless routers. (Different people bring their own)

I recently purchased a new D-link DIR-625 wireless N router.

I have it hooked up with the cable out of the aforementioned computer going into the "internet" port on the D-link.

The Problem
Computers can connect to the new D-Link with 100% signal but cannot connect to the internet. The router confirms that the is no connection to the internet via a flashing light indicator.
Attempted Solutions
I have attempted to use the other solutions on this site:
-Disable DHCP and set the first three numbers of the routers IP address to the same as the host computers, and the last to 254.

-I have also connected the line out of the first computer directly to a second computer (internet works when I do this). Then Connect the router to the second computer and clone the MAC address.

-We have a Linksys BEFW11s4 v3.2 (wireless router and 4 port switch) on location. The wireless does not work on this, but the device does work if we hard line it to other computers. I have attempted the above two solutions by connecting the "LAN out" on the Linksys to the "internet" port on the aforementioned D-Link.

From all the reading I have done I think that I have to force my D-link to work as a switch. I simply cannot seem to make it work.

I also loose the ability to open the administrative program on the D-link when I change the ip address and disable DHCP. I have release / renewed ip on the second computer (the one I am hard lined into the D-link while administering changes) and powered off both the computer and the router. Still the only way to get back connected with the router is to hard reset it.

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?

I have found another post loosely related to using 2 routers however it doesn't really address this specifically:

A:Connecting a wireless router to a modem router via ethernet?

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. 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).

Good afternoon everyone,

Please excuse the way that I may communicate as I am fairly new to posting on here.

I have been having problems with my fathers computer. He currently has a linksys B network card and also has the capability of hooking up with an ethernet cable as he is close enough to it. The software he is using is windows XP

The problem that he has is that while he is using any of his applications, such as on facebook, the computer will intermittently lose connection completely. At first i though that it may have been a problem with the network card but then found out that it is also happening when directly connected.

I run on the same router in the house and use a dell Latitude E6500 with windows vista and no problems staying online.

Does anyone have any possible idea as to how to resolve this. I am in the process of ordering a new network card for him that is a 802.11g instead of a 802.11b beyond this I cannot find any idea as to what is causing it. Any assistance is appreciated and I am more than happy to provide anymore necessary info.
 

A:computer int disconnects from router on both wireless and with ethernet

Welcome to TSG:
If you are experiencing disconnects on both wired and wireless,I might assume that the problem does not lie with the wireless adapter alone.
Couple of things I might do.
Run your updated antivirus/antispyware suite to flush out any potential threats.
When you lose connectivity,take a look at task manager.Any particular task/process using a high % of cpu.? Idle task should be running above 90%.
Boot up in safe mode with networking.
Same problem?.
Just to be safe,I might download any more current firmware for your router.I understand that your other pc does not have an issue,but newer firmware if available can't hurt.
Any error msgs when connectivity is lost ?
How do you recover ?

I need to connect my router to the computer and we have wireless Internet, So that my son can use his Xbox to go Live(online). We do have an Ethernet card. We have tries usinga wireless router before and we were never able to get it configured right. This Router is wired, we don't know anything other than that so any advice anyone can give me would be very appreciated.

A:Connecting Router to computer with wireless Internet

alright, so you as I understand you are using a non wireless enabled router right now.

What you need to do is this:

Connect cable modem/dsl modem to the router with a cat 5 (thats the ethernet cable) to the internet port on the router.

To computer one, run a cat 5 cable from the first plug (it should say 1) to the ethernet card on your computer.

To get the xbox working with wired. You will do the same. Run a cable from port 2 (plug 2) to the xbox's built int wired connection. I believe on the xbox live account you might have to say that you behind a router...*not absolutely positive on this aspect since I've never owned a xbox, nor set one up for xbox live access.*

That should allow you both to have the internet.

Hello all,

I have an Acer laptop running Vista which I believe has a broken ethernet port (it's a basically new computer but port has never worked - will contact Acer about it, but in the meantime...)

When I had my internet installed the guy was here for 3 hours because we couldn't get it to work through the ethernet port. Finally he loaned me a wireless router (linksys WRT54G) and the internet works with that. I have to return it to him so I got a different one (D-Link DI-524) which I believe my parents have used in the past but never had a password on it or anything.

I cannot run the configuration for the D-Link from the set-up CD because it wants me to plug an ethernet cable from my computer into the router, and it's not able to find it. But when the installer guy gave me the Linksys router, he just plugged it in and off we went - no config needed, straight out of the box.

I plugged the new (D-link) router in and tried to find it in the list of networks available without configuration, because it may have been configured before. An unsecured network comes up called "Home" (my parents would quite probably name it something like that if they had used it before) but the signal is weak, and when I try I am not able to connect to it, so I'm not sure if that's this router (it comes and goes and I'm not able to determine if it's there when mine is plugged in or not).

sounds like a PPP Authentication Challenge problem to me. try to check your routers support MSCHAP V.2 PPP Authentication or not. since VISTA only support PAP, CHAP and MSCHAP V.2. if your router not support MSCHAPV.2, then u should set the VISTA to support PAP and or CHAP too. by default VISTA only enable MSCHAP V.2

while XP support PAP, CHAP and MSCHAP V.1

Hi there. I am not tech savvy by any means. My friend, who owns a MAC laptop, and also has established a wireless connection in our house with a Buffalo Airstation Wireless WHR-G54S, is having no problems with connecting and most importantly, staying connected consistently with the router. I, on the other hand, who have a Windows XP PC, am having a ton of trouble both in connecting to a wireless router that is only about 5 feet away from me, as well as when connected, actually staying connected for more than 5 minutes. Some of the times, it appears as if I am connected to the wireless connection, because it says I am, but then I go to upload a page on Firefox and an error page shows up asking if I have checked the internet connection - which still says I am connected. Can someone help me in diagnosing this problem and the steps I should take in order for me to get the consistent wireless connection that my friend on her MAC has? Thanks, it would be really helpful.

Ok here's the situation:
I just moved into a student apartment. The internet is already activated and it is available through the RJ45 jack straight off the wall. Using an Ethernet cable I am able to use Internet without any issues with my PC.

What I want to do:
- Use my Buffalo ADSL router/modem to share the connection: both wired and wireless.
- Use my router as local DHCP to create a private network with my home devices.
- Be able to access both the internet and the router without having to unplug anything.

The setup:
- There is no way to use a DSL (phone) cablein the house so I have to plug the Ethernet cable carrying the connection in one of the LAN port of the router.
- My PC use another free LAN port.

The issues so far:
- I am only able to share the connection through the LAN ports of the router.
- Wireless devices are able to connect (it even read "Internet access" in the tray bar) but are unable to browse. It can't resolve proxy and always time out.
-When the Ethernet cable is plugged into the router, the router itself becomes unavailable. I'm assuming the connection has its own gateway somewhere else and prevents me from accessing the router.
- I effectively don't have any private network anymore.

edit: another weird thing I noticed. On my laptop anytime I try to connect to a wireless network it connects to 2 networks at the same time. One with the proper SSID and the other "Unidentified network"

A:Problem connecting via ethernet to router

I started your own thread for you here.

Getting an APIPA (169.254.x.y) means that the computer did not get a IP assigned by the router. Could be that the router's Dhcp server is disabled or its address range is exhausted, defective cable, defective NIC, incorrect driver, or a firewall/security suite issue.

My top suspect (should I say educated guess since we haven't done any trouble shooting yet?) is that Norton is not properly configured or is corrupted. It may be configured to allow the public IP you get when connecting to the modem but to block the private IPs from the router. Suggest that you uninstall Norton and run Symantec's Norton Removal Tool. You can then reinstall it, if desired, after the problem is solved.

Also, in whatever order you prefer, check out those two Dhcp server issues and the cable possibility.

my dad bought a wireless router so that we can have the internet on our computer and so i can go online on my ps3 aswell

however, i have a problem, my computer/laptop is quite old (bought in 2002) and it does not have an ethernet port to plug the ethernet cable in (or just not one the right size anyway). Since the instalation CD that came with the "D-Link DKT-710 Wireless G ADSL2 +starter kit" router says that to intall the router you need to switch it on and connect it to the computer via the ethernet cable.

thats the problem, how can i connect it to the computer if my computer doesnt have an ethernet port...?

are there any routers that do not use ethernet cables, or do i just have to buy a new computer if i want to have a wireless network(or any network for that matter)...?

any suggestions on what i should do, or what other router would work ?.......and incase you need to know, my current modem connects through a usb port to my computer, aparently that effects what type i will need.
 

A:connecting my router, ethernet problem...

You can buy add-in cards that add networking functionality. I have a few old PC's that I have had to put in a PCI ethernet card into. You can also get wireless but for a desktop, I recommend ethernet.
If it's a laptop, you can get a card that fits into the expansion slots on the side. If you don't have those you can get them with USB. USB would also work on a desktop if your not confident in delving into your computers innards.
Personally I would use USB as a last resort as they are known to be unreliable. I'd go for expansion slot in a laptop and get a wireless card and get a PCI ethernet card if it's a desktop. Either are easily available from local computer stores or bigger chains. If you know online sites, they would have them too.

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

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

The last time I was able to connect to the internet was May 20th, I've neglected this computer for a while, and now the antivirus programs (Malwarebytes, Comodo) are out of date.

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

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.

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.

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.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

Hi Folks,

I'm really hoping that you'll be able to help me out here. I've been trying to sort this out for a few weeks now (should have asked for help earlier I know). The set up I have is a Toshiba Satellite A100 running XP Media Center Edition and an HP Pavillon Desktop also running XP Media Center Edition. I have a cable modem which is a Castlenet CBV600E and a router which is an Encore Electronics Wireless Broadband Router.

All was working brilliantly, for 6 months until a number of things happened. The laptop got a couple of trojans and generally annoying malware on it and the broadband speed was upgraded to 4Mbps (I'm in Gozo, Malta, that's good for here!). Since then the desktop will connect fine through the modem and through the router (although through the router the speed drop by about 1/3, but that's another issue), but I can only get a stable connection for the laptop by plugging it into the modem via usb.

If I connect the laptop to the router by wire or wirelessly then the speed drops to 481 kb/s download speed, 148 kb/s upload speed and the pings rise to 385 ms (just tested on speedtest.net). If I leave the connection then the speeds will decrease until pages do not load at all and the pings rise to the 1000's ms. This can take from a couple of hours to 10 minutes. If I turn everything off, leave it off for a few minutes and start it all back up again the connection returns at a useable level for a little while, then degrad... Read more

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.

Tutorial from Johnwill from the Networking Forum

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.

My question is regarding our needs for a router/routers.

Our current setup consists of an ethernet broadband router (where everything plugs in) in the "main box" that holds all of the wiring that then goes throughout the house into the bedrooms/den/kitchen desk via cat 5 wiring.

At each of those room locations you can then plug into the wall (cat5) for internet/phone/etc. We have many items that use wifi (iphone, tablets, roku and laptops) so we have plugged a wireless router into the cat 5 jack in the den, then plugged the desktop computer in that room into the wireless router. The rest of the items are used wirelessly throughout the house.

Well our broadband router up in the "main box" we think is going bad (guess is its 8 yrs old). Our internet lately has been patchy, slow and needing to be reset often. Upon speaking with our ISP, they say the connection to the dish on the deck from their tower on the neighboring hillside is "excellent", so we are thinking it must be the router installed when the home was built.

My husband logs on to his work computer from home with gotomypc.com and works on (enormous) spreadsheets, so we need speeds to be fast to keep his sanity. Our current service is 4mbps.

Now my questions finally, 1) do we need the 2 routers i.e. the broadband router in the "main box" with a wireless router in the den or can we do everything we need with one router in the "main box"? The "main box" is ... Read more

I've been trying to use my laptop (Lenovo IdeaPad Y580) as a wireless adapter for my Xbox 360 by bridging the LAN/Wireless networks and connecting the Xbox to the laptop via Ethernet. The wireless works fine normally, but when I plug the Ethernet cable into the computer, the laptop automatically disables WiFi and changes to a LAN connection. It doesn't give any options whatsoever to reconnect to wireless, just forces me to use the Ethernet connection. As soon as the cable is removed the wireless connection returns, but for what I'm trying to do to work, I need both LAN and wireless to be working simultaneously, and the wireless providing the Internet connection. I've also tried connecting the laptop to a router via Ethernet and received the same result, so I'm pretty sure it's something on the laptop that's causing it. Is there a way to change this so the laptop can use the wireless connection while plugged into another device via Ethernet? Thanks to all who respond.

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.

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.
 

A:Connecting a Wireless Router to a Wired Router

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.

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!

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 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.

Last week or so, we had a storm, and devices got unplugged. Internet service was out briefly. Wireless internet came back shortly after, but my desktop and our PS4 both can't connect to the internet via ethernet, and I can't figure out why. I've done the usual stuff: power cycle, tried out other ethernet cords, etc. Comcast has said that it's not on their end, and our wireless signal is fine, so we're clearly getting signal through the modem and out through the router. My desktop is plugged into a different modem, but also won't connect to the one attached to the router. A hard reset of the modem didn't help, whether through the button or through the configuration settings. My desktop is claiming that there's no ethernet cable plugged in, though there definitely is. I'd suspect a broken port if the PS4 weren't having the same issue. I've tried a few things on the desktop, including installing the most recent drivers for the network adapter, rolling back the driver, disabling/renabling, and just deleting it and let it reinstall one on restart, and trying to reset the IP stack. I'm posting links to screenshots of some of the command prompt commands I've tried, and the results. They vary a little bit, I've gone into the registry to enable some permissions after access was denied. Any ideas you can send my way are greatly appreciated.

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


I am trying to connect them wirelessly.Click to expand...

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.
