Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Q: Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

I have been trying for some time to accomplish the title result. I'm not techie enough to do it.

What I want is to be able to use a Tablet to read in the rear of my home (which is out of range for incoming wifi signal.)

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.
I have two computers and could use either.

1.a PC running XP (should update to windows 8.1, but have never bothered to do that, since XP works just fine. (I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

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: Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

There is a tutorial explaining the basics ... and more on this site

Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot

So I got a new router yesterday to replace the old one, and I've been working on it for a long time. But I can't seem to figure out why there isn't any internet connection. The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

I am currently stationed in Germany, and live in a village that has horrible internet. I cannot stream netflix, hulu, and downloads take several hours.

Is there a way to combine the internet that my cell phone receives and the wifi router I have at home to increase speed?

I have the ability to create a wifi hotspot from my cell phone if this helps.

Just something I thought up in my head, and wanted to find out if it is possible. Thanks in advance.

Dear Friends,

I am encountering strange issue while connecting my laptop to my home wifi router. I have 4 devices connected to router and working perfectly, but my Dell laptop suddenly stopped connecting to internet. It seems to be connected to router, but says No Internet Access. This is new issue, since it was working fine along with other 4 devices in the past.

Tried doing some basic steps, like - Removing the devices from Network Center and adding again, Reset the Router, ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release..but nothing works.

The funny thing is when I do a USB/Wifi Hotspot Tethering using same wifi with my Android phone, the Dell laptop connects to internet.

So, Its clear that Wifi Router is Good, Internet is Good, Laptop Network Card is also good, but something else is wrong. Please help.

OS - Windows 10(The same issue was there in Windows 7 HP before installing Windows 10)

Hi everybody!

I would be happy if anybody could help me solve my network connection problems. I am trying to connect my laptop to internet via wireless router and modem. It successfully connected to router there is no internet access. I have tried wire connection directly to the modem, and it worked. I also know the wireless router is working fine due to we have phones that wirelessly connected to the router, and they are also getting internet access.

Please help!

A:Laptop wifi connected to router but no internet access

I would firstly, double check security and you typed your passkey in right.. sounds dumb but has fixed many peoples errors. Also make sure you didn't block your MAC Adrees.

If still no go, turn off the router security then try to connect.

If no go try updating the drivers.

If still no go then we got issues.

I have ADSL WiFi router, i need to know can i share my PC files to my mobile phone using this ADSL router? If i can how do i do it?

Have a look here: Share Files Wirelessly Between Android and Any Computer | PCWorld Business Center

And here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/41583...ne-wirelessly/

Basically, you're using a third-party file explorer that sets up a mini-server on your Android phone, which in turn hooks you up to your wireless network.

Okay.....I am simply trying to connect my Win7 notebook to the wireless router, but i JUST don't know which network settings are misconfigured and i have tried everything and anything to figure this out but i fail to do so.
The laptop connects but with a persistent messge "no internet access". I am sure i entered the right passkey and enabled the wifi on router configuration page( from pc).
My notebook's wifi and ethernet adapter are both set on "Obtain an IP add automatically" and "obtain DNS server automatically". The lan card on pc with win xp is also configured the same way.
I tried declaring the ip and subnetmask explicitly on wlan adapter but it still fails to connect. I don't know...the prblm is in router's configuration or adapter settings or both could be misconfigured?
I tried several methods multiple times but i am so frustrated...none of them is working.

A:How to share computer Internet connection as WiFi?

I'm doing exactly that right now I have a Realtek USB WiFi 'dongle' (it says Dynamode 11N USB Adapter on it, but it uses Realtek stuff). The internet gets to my computer via my old phone, tethered via USB. It then goes through the computer and out the USB wireless adapter to my newer phone and iPod as WiFi.
I'm afraid I don't know the exact model of mine, but it looks just like this. (In Devices and Printers it shows up as RTL8188S WLAN Adapter). I just installed the drivers and bit of software, then in the software clicked on the 'Mode' tab, wher I could switch it from 'Station' to 'Access Point'. I could then choose which internet connection into the PC that it shared, set up a WEP key etc. and then share the connection throughout the house.
hope I helped

(I'm pretty sure the one in the link is the one I have, as it looks identical and they don't list any other similar items)

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.
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 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:
Output of ipconfig: http://pastebin.com/Zr9Eb7L7

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.

I am looking to replace my tired Linksys WRT54G router that is about 10 years old. I love the router, and its even better with DD-WRT on it, but I'm starting to have troubles with the wifi dropping all the connects for a couple seconds when running all my wireless devices. I have 3 smart phones, 2 tablets, 1 Chromecast, a smart TV, and Roku + a laptop or 3 in my house right now, and it seems like its getting to be a bit much for it.
I have had to completely re-flash the firmware twice this year to get the wifi working again, so I'm thinking its time for replacement.
I have been thinking about just getting the new WRT54GL for $50, but I'm also thinking it might be a good idea to upgrade the wifi technology past wireless G .
I'm wondering if my Tablet (Nexu 9), and our smartphones (Razr HD Max) along with the Chromecast will take advantage of the new wireless standards and higher speeds or not? If they will can someone recomend a decent wireless router that takes DD-WRT nicely in the sub-$100 range? Thanks!

A:Looking for new Wifi Router - Will Tablet/Smartphone take advantage of new wifi Standards?

I been programming in Android/Linux since 2010 and there is code that supports VHT is Very High Throughput. Right now the standards are HT is High Throughput .

As for DD-WRT firmware is like your overclocking your router pushing it beyond the OEM limits. I use to use DD-WRT but had quit many years ago since the routers that used that firmware would fail too much.

So best to buy a better business type enterprise router wired then you can use WiFi router as AP or just get WiFi AP(access point). To me WiFi Router is also Wired Router, but to use just a wired router and use WiFi AP through a switch is better. If one or the other goes you can easy replace them. Where as if the WiFi Router fails you would need to replace it.

If you really want to use DD-WRT then Look at Buffalo WiFi Routers some come pre-installed with DD-WRT on them. Frankly you really don't need DD-WRT today because newer routers or WiFi routers are much better built and offer much more power NPU = network processor units and 128, 256, 512, 1GB of RAM some have Dual Cores.

hi all, hope someone can help me with this,

i have broadband from virgin media with one of their superhubs made by netgear, i have a CCTV DVR plugged into this using a regular cat5 cable, the DVR will allow you to view 4 cctv cameras via the internet,

android and blackberry phones can both connect to the router using wifi, an IBM laptop running XP also has no problems, the only thing that does have a problem is a new Toshiba laptop running windows 8,

if the DVR is plugged into router before win 8 connects then the win8 machine cannot log on using wifi, it gives message saying restricted access and has no internet access, if you unplug the DVR win8 machine logs on fine you can then plug DVR back in and laptop can browse all day with no problems, if you log off then try and log on again you get the same restricted access message again

spent over an hour on phone with toshiba tech support and the best he could come up with is windows 8 is not correctly configured for my network

can anyone help with this problem

So, I live in my parents' basement, and I'm positioned at the very front of the house down here. The router (a Linksys WRT54GL, stock firmware) is down here with me right on my desk along with the cable modem and moving them is not an option. I need the simplest solution possible, perhaps something I can put upstairs on the main floor.

My parents have a gazebo out in the back as shown below and they like to take their laptop out there and even though it functions, they say that the signal is just barely strong enough and so it reduces the performance noticeably as compared to being in the house (roughly where that chimney is, but on the main floor). I can see that because I'm literally at the front of the house in the basement (as close to the front as you can get, right about in the center and I'm facing West and so the router is right up against the wall). So, the router is as far away from the gazebo as is possible, outside of putting it in the front yard or something.

So as you can see, it's not exactly close! So do they need a WiFi extender, an access point, or should I get a better router? What's the best option without costing too much money?

Additionally, I don't know what's good or bad on the market, and so I need your help with that as well. I'd like to get them the best unit possible whatever that may be (extender, access point, or router) so that it does an excellent job and can keep working for as many years to come as possibl...

Actually my wifi adapter can catch all other wifi signal except my wifi router.

A:my notebook wifi adapter don't get my wifi router

There are several resons.1. The wifi signal might be too weak at the point where the computer is.2. Other device radiation/signals might be blocking it.3. Your router signal might be hodden (check EWS of router).4. Signal broadcasting might have been turned off on router. Since other signals are found on the computer, there shouldnt be a issue with your couputer.

I was at a home today and connected to their private home network on a Surface Pro 4. This showed their network as Connected. However, the internet kept going to a local open BT network instead! I couldn't select this open network anywhere to exclude it. Thinking about it now, I should have disabled/reenabled Wifi first, and then tried a reboot after that. But otherwise, is there any hidden setting to ignore certain networks?

A:Using 'open' access Wifi point instead of connected private wifi.

Hello and welcome to the TenForums

If the home where you were had a BT hub then it most probably was offering both an open connection also known as BT Wifi or BT Fon and also a secured wifi connection which would have an SSID number with a BThub name with some random numbers and letters. It is possible that you connected to the open one and were then automatically directed to a BT broadband page on the internet to pay for use of the BT hotspot service that they provide via customers routers.

I have a BSNL Wimax internet(India) connection. I get input from a terrace antenna to a modem(OX253P). An ethernet cable is then connected between the modem and the laptop. My internet works perfectly fine when the ethernet cable is plugged in directly to the laptop. I have also got a TP-Link TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless N Router. When I plug in the output from the modem (OX253P) to the WAN port(blue) on TL-WR841N my internet worked for a week via the wifi router, without any configuration.
My internet service went down for a week due to a fault. When it was restored, the internet via the modem to laptop(via an ethernet cable) works but doesn't work when I give the output of the modem(OX253P) to the wifi router WAN port. I have tried resetting both the wifi router and the modem to original settings, MAC cloning etc. but nothing seems to help. Also disabled DHCP on wifi router but no joy.
The WAN light turns off as soon as I connect to the modem via the ethernet cable. I have a feeling that something isn't right with my modem. Can someone please help?

I'm confused. Here's the scenario. It's small office with a wireless network. They just installed a computer downstairs with one of those giant printer, scanner copier things.

I want to connect the printer to the existing network. The computer has a wireless card but the printer doesn't have wireless capabilities and needs to be plugged in via an ethernet cable. They want to be able to print to that printer from upstairs.

Should I get a wireless router and plug the printer into that or should I get an access point? Can you plug the printer into the access point? OR, should I get a wireless print server and plug the printer into one of the ethernet ports?

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Hi there! I'm not not really techy. I was looking for a customer support number for Tp-link but thought that this forum may be helpful since I can't find their number anywhere on the net. Im using a Tp-link wireless router and I have a modem attached to my pc. I just noticed that if I turn off my router, the Ethernet light on my modem turns off, but the power and dsl lights are still on. Is there a way for me to use my pc even if my router is turned off? If I remember right, i've tried it before and it worked... But now, I have to turn on my router just for me to be able to connect to the net on my pc.

Every router user manual I've ever looked at includes a customer support number for the company. Have you looked in the manual?

Could you be very specific about your network, beginning with your type of ISP?

Internet in my PC would get disconnected, like not fully disconnected but there will be a /!\ yellow exclamation on the internet icon, not a red X. WiFi on other devices would be working. I use a cable to connect router to PC.

This would happen a few times a day or sometimes it doesn't happen in a day. I would take out the cable from the WiFi router and plug it back and the internet will then work fine.

Why does this happen?

The Router is Tenda N301.

I currently have a standard internet plan which offers speeds of 15Mbps. I can get a plan offering up to 50Mbps. I'm wondering, are these speeds realistic, is it worth getting the bigger plan?

In addition to that, I'm looking at getting a new WiFi router. If I am upgrading my plan, is there a router I should consider that would take advantage of those speeds?

We have a few devices connected wirelessly: 2 phones, 2 tablets, 3 laptops, 3 tvs streaming

I have a reliance net connect plus data-card which i am using to connect internet on my laptop. I have looked at several forums and sites to share internet using wifi hotspot using the netsh commands but my android detects an connects to the wifi but is unable to access the internet( i have shared my data card internet to the hotspot connection).

For what i have understood till not i think we cannot share internet using hosted network to android devices please tell me a way if we can do that.

So now i came across another post which shares internet using a wifi router,
I tried changing the configuration and the connecting to the wifi but i am still not able to connect my android device.

Please help me, any method is okay for me. I just need internet access on my mobile phone using the data card.

Dear friends

I need some help on adding an additional computer to a home network.

At present, I have a Netgear WGR614 Wireless Router. Two computers are connected to it. The main computer, a desktop is a Pentium IV 1.5 Ghz computer connected via an Dlink NIC card. The second computer, a Fujitsu laptop 2.4 Ghz 512 Mb computer is connected wirelessly to the router. Both computers can see each other fine and can connect to the internet with no problems.

The problem came up when I added another computer to the set up. It is a Celeron based computer with a Realtek NIC card. I coonected it via the NIC card to the same router. It is able to see the two other computers in the network. The main problem is the internet access. For some reason, when I connected the third computer, my internet access through the main computer is pretty much gone! I can't access the internet. The third computer can't seem to access the internet also. When I detach the lan cable from the third computer from the router, the main computer accesses the internet normally!

Question: What things should I be checking on the :

a. router settings
b. third computer settings
c. main computer settings
d. Possible conflicts

Any help would be highly appreciated.

As of a couple days ago I can no longer access my Buffalo NAS share. I have't had any connectivity issues before. The odd thing is if I use a wired connection I have no problems access the share, but over wifi I get this error:

\\Your-Drive is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated.

I've read some other posts related to this error, and I've tried adding Windows Credentials from the post here and I've seen posts about using gpedit.msc but I'm using Windows 10 Home which doesn't have that (and I don't want to install a 3rd party tool). I've restarted everything (computer, router, modem, NAS) too.

Any other suggestions or ideas why it only fails over wifi?

I have security cameras in my barn. the computer is in barn. cables run into wifi extender on front of barn. this communicates with wifi extender on back of house. cable runs from this extender through wall and into router by ethernet cable. worked fine for a few months. then i started to have real trouble connecting to internet. I was getting DNS address not found error messages. sometimes cameras will work sometimes not. Called carrier and after 2 hours of trouble shooting they said they had no clue what the problem was. they were not even able to get into router. they said somehow it was blocked and they cant get in. said they never saw this before. they sent me new router and all was well for about 3 months. Now its happening again. This am no internet, no cameras, TV took a long time to come on. Back on phone with carrier, another 2 hours of trouble shooting, found out when I pull wifi cable out of back of router all goes well. they can get into router and i can fly around on internet. Well for cameras to work I need internet to work well. Any idea what this is all about?

A:Connected to WiFi router but no internet acess!

If you had McAfee you will want to run it's special uninstaller tool.

McAfee Removal Tool - McAfee Uninstaller

A few problems I noticed at that you have 2 Msoft Virtual WiFi mini port adaptors enabled, you should disable both of them as they aren't used unless you set up a hosted wireless network.

Another possible problem is that you seem to have a default gateway showing up where the DNS servers should be.

Is there secondary router in this network or did you type the default gateway into the DNS settings for some reason?

It may help to type the DNS servers into the routers settings then remove the entries from the IPv4 properties.

It also appears that you typed a DNS server into your WINS at the IPv4 properties, WINS isn't used much anymore so removing that entry might be wise.

Hi All,

I hope someone can help me as i am pulling my hair out here!

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 64 bit pre-installed.

The symptoms are that it won't connect wirelessly to my router at home, but will connect with a wire to the same router, and furthermore it will also connect either wired or wirelessly to the network at my office (this is an unsecured wifi network). I never have any problems at work, only at home, and only then with wifi - wired connection works fine.

I did an IP config thingy and got this..... I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

A:New PC Windows 7 64 bit, connects to wifi router but not to internet

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Try refreshing your wireless network profiles by removing all of them then just add your own SSID (wireless network).
Wireless Network - Remove

If that didn't help, you may changing your wireless security (WEP, WPA or WPA2), make sure that you are on WPA2, it's the safest and most secured.
