[D-Link DSL-2640R] Setting up as Access Point?

Q: [D-Link DSL-2640R] Setting up as Access Point?

Hi

Hopefully quite a simple question, although I may be wrong! I have a spare router, a D-Link DSL-2640R that I would like to set up as a wireless access point. The reason is, I am currently residing in student accommodation, where the only source for internet access is wired ethernet ports in the bedroom walls.

Obviously the standard setup of the router wont allow me to broadcast this connection wirelessly, as it requires a phone line, however I have been told a "Wireless Access Point" would allow me to connect with various devices (Xbox 360, Laptop, iPhone etc.) without switching ethernet cables around all the time.

I have been trying to make do with ICS on my Windows laptop, however this doesn't seem to work with Xbox Live.

I have a good knowledge of computing just fall short when it comes to networking. Any help or guides would be great.

Thanks

I bought this router today and i cant get online via wireless connection. I can get online using cable or wireless using a windows laptop but i cant get online via AirPort. I tried different security types then no security at all and still while i get connected to the router there is no internet. Hope you can help.
The mac im using is MBP Pro 13" 2009 model with latest updates on. I havent had problems connecting to other wireless network before.
 

A:D-Link DSL-2640R + OSX

When you connect to the router, what is the IP address for the computer and the gateway?

Double check the wireless setup (if its WPA etc) on the computer and make sure it's the same as the router.

Go to Applications > Utilities > Network Utilities and do a ping test to www.yahoo.com, 67.195.160.76, and whatever your default gateway is. I believe on Macs the default gateway may be referred as Router in the network status.

Hi, I was wondering whether I can set my RaLink RT2560 in an access point mode so my PSP can access it to connect to the internet.

Setup:

- Onboard NIC connected to internet (nForce 3)
- RaLink RT2560 Wireless lan card
- PSP firmware 3.72

I've found some threads about this on google but none have helped me so far (as they mention older PSP firmwares or the tutorials just don't damn work out after all)

I've tried ad-hoc and bridged the lan to wlan but nothing works. I need it to enable WMA and Flash on my PSP.

Thank you

I have a slightly confusing set up on my home network and can't figure out how to set up a wireless access point. Here is my setup:

I have an Apple airport extreme N set up in the main house. We also have a converted garage in the back yard that is barely within the range of the main router. I have an ethernet cable running from the router in the main house to the back house. I then have that plugged into a switch, which then feeds ethernet to several components. The wireless signal in the back house is very weak, which can be frustrating, so I wanted to set up a separate wireless network in the back. I have an Apple airport express that I am currently using to stream music to a home theater in the back house and would love to use that as a wireless access point. It is hooked up to the switch. I also have a Netgear N router that I could possible use as an access point as well. The problem that I am having is with IP address assignment. I would guess that this is because the main router assigns IP addresses and then the switch also assigns IP addresses. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Setting up a wireless access point

To use a wireless router as a WAP ...

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!

Hi after reading through various online guides about setting up a 2nd router as an access point i have a few questions. First things first i did attempt this before and it worked but after the wireless on my original router began to go out until it eventually broke. i don't know if the this is connected with setting up an access point. I realize now i did not set the routers on a different channel and the SSIDs were different. I have a new router from AT&T and i want to try again to set up an access point. my question is what should the settings in the 2nd router page be. Does the name of it and password need to be the same? And also is it possible that setting up this access point will break my original router?

Thanks in advance

I have a Draytek Vigor 2820 ADSL Modem Router supplying my internet connection to my home network with both wired and wireless devices connected to it.

To extend the wireless range of my network I purchased a TP-Link TL-WA701ND.

I am using the TL-WA701ND in universal repeater mode, connected to my Draytek wirelessly and using the MAC address of the Draytek. I have also set my Draytek to operate in bridge mode using the MAC address of the
TL-WA701ND.

I can get internet services and email through the TL-WA701ND wirelessly without problem.

My problem is that I CANNOT access file sharing or iTunes home sharing services through the TL-WA701ND. I cannot see any of my computers connected to the draytek router. However I can see computers
connected to the TL-WA701ND from other computers connected to the Draytek Router.

I have tried switching the TL-WA701ND to Repeater mode with WDS activated on the Draytek router and I lose my network connection completely from the TL-WA701ND.

A wired option is not an option, as this is a set-up between two houses.

I have searched the internet and TP-Link site for support on this matter and have found nothing.

Any ideas.

Thanks, Max.

I've a Pirelli modem-router and I'd like to connect a D-Link dwl-2100ap as access point (operation mode= access point).

Details:
I connected 2100ap to Pirelli through an ethernet cable
2100ap has a dynamic ip provided by Pirelli's dhcp
Pirelli and D-Link 2100ap have same SSID, same encryption (wpa) and same pw but, probably, different channel (both on "auto channel scan").
With a notebook on the wan I can ping the 2100ap, I can access to its setting pages but if I go close to it (far away from Pirelli) I don't see any network with the notebook, in other words the D-Link doesn't work as access point.

Hi guys, this is my first post so be gentle and talk slow please...

I've got the BT HH4 set up as the main router in my house but because it "has" to be plugged into the Master Socket its currently tucked away in the loft upstairs and the WiFi signal downstairs is really struggling because of it... So I decided to stick my neck out and install an access point downstairs as the house is cabled up! The one I've gone for is the 'TP-Link TL-WA901ND' which I checked was pretty good and would do the job for me, however before it's arrived I found out that I COULD have just used the old HH3 instead?!

So here's my question, does anyone know which device would be better as a Wireless Access Point downstairs..? Either the BT Home Hub 3 or the TP-Link TL-WA901ND (Advanced 300Mbps Wireless N Access Point).

Any help would be appreciated, I just want to see if it's worth me sending the TP Link back if the HH3 does a better job..!

Many thanks in advance =D
 

A:BT HH3 or TP-Link TL-WA901ND as Wireless Access Point??

i would suggest you try the HH3 and see how it works for you.

Its difficult to advise, because the construction of the house and layout has a lot to do with how the wireless signal performs , also the interference from other wireless signals , if there are a lot in the area , can impact the quality.

Hello.

We are currently upgrading our wifi technology at work. As a result I have obtained an access point that was used in the network no longer needed. I would like to install this in my home in order to boost the signal and range.

The access point is a D-Link DWL-8610AP. I have no CD-ROM or manual however I have looked at a few videos online. The problem I have at the moment is that I cannot seem to get into the Access point user interface to make any changes.

I have connected the access point my laptop using an ethernet cable. There are 2 ports on the access point: a LAN port and a console port. I have tried both.
Next I have opened a browser and typed 192.168.0.50 into the address bar which I acquired from an online manual and video. However, this just returns a search list when I expected a window requesting the login details for the access point. I can't seem to get any further.

I have almost zero experience of networking so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

My home network consists of 8 PCs, a PVR, an IP Camera, a PS3, a Wii and a network printer. My sons also have iPods they want to connect wirelessly.

My internet connection is cable which connects to a Netgear WNR3500 wireless gigabit router. This is cabled to a DLink 1016D 16 port gigabit switch.

Wireless is enabled on the WNR3500 and the iPods connect fine within a 25-30 foot radius of the router. The PS3 only got a 35-45% signal from 15 feet away so I cabled it. The other end of the house is 60 feet away.

At the other end of the house I have a PC and a PVR connected to a DLINK DGS1008D 8 port gigabit switch.

I purchased a TP-LINK TL-WA601G access point from a computer store who told me this would enable me to have the wireless devices to access the network from that end of the house.

But I can't get it working. I have the same SSID on both wireless routers. I have the TP-Link set to access point mode, and plugged into the switch. The WNR3500 is 192.168.1.250 and the TP-Link is 192.168.1.254. When I look at connected devices on the WNR3500 I do not see the TP-LINK.

Can someone please provide guidance as to how I extend my wireless capabilities to the far end of the house. Sorry for being a noob.

thanks

A:Correct mode for TP-Link access point?

The simple answer is that the store guy gave me a bum steer.

The correct answer is that the TP-Link had to be configured as a repeater, and the MAC address of the WNR3500 added.

On the Netgear WNR3500 I had to enable the wireless repeater and set it as a repeater base station then add the MAC address of the TP-LINK.

Thanks for your assistance.

OK, I'm attempting to set up an access point for public internet access, but don't want the users to see the office computers.

AP: D-link DWL-2200AP (w/ most current firmware)
Office Router: Netgear FVS318v3
No server set up yet, just the router going to a few PCs

Netgear router (192.168.1.1) is the dhcp server - 192.168.1.x [office computers are on this].
The AP DHCP (192.168.1.53) to issue 192.168.100.x [public users].

I'm not 100% sure about the default gateway & DNS information I need to put in the AP. I've tried several settings, but none have gotten internet access to work.

Last settings I tried on the Dynamic Pool settings on the AP:
IP assigned from: 192.68.100.50
range of pool: 15
SubMask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.53
wins: 0.0.0.0
DNS: 192.168.1.53

Right now, the AP will issue out the correct IP address of 192.168.100.x, but I cannot connect to the internet. nslookup says it can't find server. - which makes sense because it is a different IP set, right?

From a laptop, I can ping 192.168.1.53 but not 192.168.1.1 even though the address on the laptop got assigned 192.168.100.50. If that's the case, then shouldn't the DNS work?
I have tried different address for the gateway and dns, but nothing has worked.

Am I just wasting my time here? I'm learning about this stuff as I go along, this is the first time I've tried anything with a different IP range together.

Thanks

Mike

A:Setting up networking/LAN + wireless access point

I can't help you with the Nokia N80 but if it connects via Wi-Fi then I assume it will be the same as the Notebook.

Connect the modem/router to the switch. To the uplink port if the switch has one. If it doesn't have an uplink port, and if neither the modem/router or switch are auto-sensing you have to use a CROSS-OVER ethernet cable.

Connect the wired PC and the access point to the switch. Connect the wireless PC to the access point via Wi-Fi.

I would like to know the step by step to :

1) set up a repeater using an another router.

2) set up an alternate access point (with out Ethernet connection to it if possible using the routerlogin.net)

What are the major advantages and disadvantages of both.

My router is a Netgear N750 Dual Band Gigabit Router and the router I would like to use to boost the signal is the same model.

The problem is that the signal is not strong enough sometimes to use my Galaxy S4 on the other side of the house away from the router. And sometimes the signal does loose strength to my desktop using an internal wireless adapter for WiFi .

The desktop is not so much the issue but the phone is.

So, I thought I would try to increase the range of the router to cover the areas of the house that are receiving a week signal from the router.

Thanks for all your help.

I've run into a bit of a wall setting up a wifi connection. What I want to set up is this:

cable modem >--(cable)--> primary computer >--(wireless)--> other computers and devices

So I need the primary computer (which is running on Vista) to act as a wireless access point. Here is how far we have got with this:

1. Bought and successfully installed drivers for a USB wireless adapter.
2. Successfully set up an adhoc network, and detected it using a second computer, a Nintendo Wii, and a Nintendo DS.
3. Changed IP address range on the router to 192.168.1.x
4. Completely and dramatically failed to share the primary computer's internet connection with the other connected devices.

The USB adapter came with some software, which we have installed (it says it is compatible with Vista), but when we try to run it it appears on the running processes list but there's no window for it, no icon in the system tray, and we can't work out how on earth we're supposed to use it without either of these.

The USB adapter is a Safecom SWMULZ-5400, and from all the information I can find about it it sounds like it is possible to use it as either a wireless access point or a receiver (and others seem to have successfully set it up as a wireless access point, though I noticed that somebody running WinXP SP2 was having the same issue with the software as us).
The software that came with this USB adapter is called ZDWLan.

I live in the UK and use Sky as my ISP.

The wireless router they supply is OK as far as the internet side of things is concerned, but for a good wireless connection to my wife's laptop in the next room, it sucks.

I have a spare Netgear DG834N Wireless ADSL2 modem router and was going to use this instead of my Sky router in an effort to improve the wireless range. Unfortunately, Sky's T's & C's insist that using a different router to the one they supplied could result in my internet service being withdrawn.

In an effort to prevent people using a third-party router, Sky have encrypted theirs with a username and password (not the username and password used to logon for e-mail etc) that can be retrieved with a hack, but I prefer not to go down that route.

What I would like to do is use the Sky router to handle the internet side of things, and then use my Netgear router as a wireless access point to give us better wireless coverage around the house.

Is this possible and if so, how do I go about it?

Hi,

when it reloaded, it takes my domain controllers (My DHCP server) ip address as its address while creating IP address conflict with the server. when i check the dhcp server, sometimes its hostname comes under the address leases and sometime not comming.

my server's host name goes as "server.xxxx.com" and access points host name is mention as "dir600.server.xxxx.com" in the DHCP leases section.

can anybody help me to avoid the router taking the server address? (server address has statically configured)

In access point mode? That's extremely strange. And, assuming that's possible, why?

Meaning of "reloaded"?

... it takes my domain controllers (My DHCP server) ip address as its address while creating IP address conflict with the server.Click to expand...

That implies a problem with the server--somehow you have it configured to have its own address in the Dhcp server's address range.

A:TP-Link TL-WA701ND Access Point configuration problem

Generally speaking, there's a limited number of ways to access a router's configuration utility. Some will have an access port on the back of the router; but with the typical home-type router, you would utilize the web-browser method. Sometimes this is with a name like 'tp-linkrouterconfig' (or something to that effect), but more often than not it's via a specific IP address as you show above. Some routers will allow configuration through the wireless connection(s), but some specifically require you to be wired directly to the router.

Either way, you will have to be connected directly through that particular router, not through a different one. (eg - You shouldn't be able to access the TP-Link config utility while you're plugged into the other one across the way, or while accessing through another router's wireless connection)

Now, if you're trying to:

Unless you're simply trying to state that you'd use your Web Browser to do so, then there's NO WAY you're going to configure your home router from outside the home network.

Guys, I am having a hard time configuring my Access point. I have a DSL Router connected to our telephone line and it works fine wirelessly, Yesterday I purchased TP LINK Router to configure as Access Point to extend wireless signal up to the second floor. Now, I am wondering, should I do some re-configuration on my DSL Router before configuring my TP Link Router? Guys, Please share your thoughts and if you have knowledge on how to configure my 2nd Router to my Wifi Networks that will help.
NOTE: I followed the user guide manual that came with my TP LINK router but it is no USE. I just need to know if should I reconfigure my 1st Router in order to communicate with my 2nd Router.

Thanks,

A:How To CONFIGURE TP LINK ROUTER as ACCESS POINT in an existing network

How are you connecting the two routers together?

An access point needs to have a static IP, and it needs to be outside of the DHCP range that your router is using. For example, if your router assigns IP addresses from 192.168.1.150 to 192.168.1.200, you need to have the access point IP address below 150 or above 200. I like to keep the access points close to the router, so I usually use 192.168.1.10 for the first access point.

What model router did you buy? TP Link makes a few, and knowing the exact model will help us help you.

Hi guys and gals!
Im in abit of trouble trying to setup a wireless network. Part of the problem is that I am many miles away and I've never setup a wifi-netork involving more than one device, that device being a router.

I've attached a jpg which should explain the basics of the problem. This is what I've done so far:

I connected the TL-WA901ND to the router(a Thomson tg787) located in the house, this router couldn't be used simply because the SSID and its password is locked, and we sometimes have people renting the bottom floor and we would prefer a better SSID and a changable password for the network. The first TL-WA901ND(will call this one TL1(AP) from now on, the other being TL2(RP)) is set to operate as Access Point, having a different SSID and password for the network, and it works great. However, when I try to set the other one, TL2(RP) to repeater mode, with the TL1(AP) and that SSID/MAC as "target", it doesn't seem to work. I've tried using bot the repeater mode and the universal repeater mode but none of them seem to do the job.
Is is possible to repeat the signal of an access point or does it have to be a router?
The SSID and the WPAkey of the repeater is set to the same as the access point, is that correct?
The access point is not the one handing out IP-addresses, the router is still acting as the DHCP-server, is that correct?
Are there any other setups using these devices that could achieve the same thing?, using some k... Read more

A:Using a repeater to extend the signal of an Access Point, both a TP-Link TL-WA901ND

I've never set up a Repeater, so blind leading the blind may not help much.

Is is possible to repeat the signal of an access point or does it have to be a router?Click to expand...

Depends on the Repeater and Access Point. I didn't check the manual, but I would expect that two of the same device would play nice together.

The SSID and the WPAkey of the repeater is set to the same as the access point, is that correct?Click to expand...

To my surprise I learned recently that the Repeater (at least some of them) can broadcast a different SSID. But certainly you have to specify that of the Access Point in order to make the connection between them. I'd get it working w/o encryption first. In some cases you have to specify the MAC Address of the other device--again, I did not check the manual for your units.

The access point is not the one handing out IP-addresses, the router is still acting as the DHCP-server, is that correct?Click to expand...

Yes, definitely.

A:Netgear N150 Access Point WN604 setting up a password

Hello NJMom

Try to access the router by using the ip address of the router to see if you can access it. to find the IP address do the following:
Click Start -> Run and type in cmd. This will open the command prompt. Enter "ipconfig" (without the quotes). The value defined for "Default gateway" is your routers ip address.

Enter this into the address bar in a browser and see if it accesses the router.

Alternativly try the manuals recommendation and go to http://www.routerlogin.net although I have never seen this method before to access a router
(Manual: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNR1000_SM_WW_23Jan09.pdf)

From inside the router you should be able to find the wireless settings where it should have security options available.

I am running completely wireless now. I have a Linksys WRT54G router and about 5 computers connected to it wirelessly (G).

I have a printer that has a built in network card, and you can configure the IP address from the setup screen on the printer. (Xerox C2424)

I'm trying to link the printer up to the router, wirelessly. I have been told that you can use a USB Print Server, but that would not be necessary considering that I have a built-in network card already in the printer. I just purchased a DWL-G700AP D-Link Access Point to hook up to the printer, but I am unsure of how I should configure it. I am trying to link the printer wirelessly to the router, and sharing that to the people on my network.

Hi,
Let me begin by stating that I have only a basic understanding of how networks work. I have setup small home/office networks that used linksys routers and adapters that hooked up to DSL and also one that was strictly for file and printer sharing - but other than that, I am a newb...so please be extremely specific in your answers - I greatly appreciate your help and expertise!

The questions is: What is the best way (and HOW) do I setup the following request...

Here is the situation:
I was asked by a coworker to setup a printer in his office that he could access with several laptops wirelessly. The printer does not have built-in wifi, but all of the laptops already have network adapter cards (we bought a netgear WGR614 wireless router to use as an access point {?} to accomplish this). Our office internet is primarily wireless, but there is one internet port in the wall in his office if needed. I am wanting to hook the printer up to the existing wireless network so that he can be on the internet and print at the same time. How can I accomplish this easily?

As for the existing network, here is how it is setup - It appears as though it is Verizon DSL. Connected to the wall is the modem, which is a regular small looking plastic modem that I've seen come with cheap residential plans. Connected to that appears to be some type of relay, or hub. Then that is connected to what looked like a Linksys WRT54G wireless router.

Let the router sit unplugged for several hours before trying the next reset to factory default settings, but that has only a very low chance of succeeding.

If you cannot reset to factory default settings or after doing so the router is still not replying to pings and not letting you login you can shop for a new one.

I just Installed a Solid State Drive replacing/cloning my previous Primary Disk Drive.
Apparently the Restore Point setup "window" still thinks the old Disk Drive is there, but "(Missing)".
Screen grab attached.
"Configure" shows zero current usage, but when I tried to turn it off I was warned that all restore points will be deleted and new Restore Points won't be created.
Perhaps that only means Restore Points won't be created (only) for the "(Missing)" drive and I'm worried about nothing. I want to be safe rather than sorry.
FWIW: The original Drive is still installed but renamed to a new name & letter.
