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.

What's your question? Setting up a router is very easy with the models out now. They have a fold out chart and easy to follow instructions on the CD that comes with it.

Hi, this question goes with an earlier question I posted. I am trying to get a new modem/router as the one I have I am renting from my internet provider. It took me awhile but I finally found the exact same modem/router. It is a Siemans SpeedStream 6520 modem/router. My question is: Can I just plug in the new one I bought without having to reinstall it on my computers? Remember, they are exactly the same model and everything. I have to send the old one back to the internet provider so can I just switch them out automatically?????? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Switching modem/router. Need help.

It needs to be configured to work with your ISP, so you have to at least call them. You wouldn't have to change anything on your computers only if the modem/router was set to factory defaults meaning the same SSID, encryption, IP address range, etc.

I'm switching from AT&T U-verse to Comcast since comcast can offer speeds up to 5x faster.

As you might know At&T uses ethernet as incoming signal vs. Comcast that uses 75 ohm cable.

I need to buy a new modem and router to install the new Comcast service.

I have two questions:

1) What is better? the combo modem/router units (i.e. Motorola SBG6580) or buying a separate stand-alone modem Motorola 6141 modem + Netgear N750 wireless router)?

2) I do have one issue to overcome. I have one TV in my house that is wired for cable only. That is, it has a cable run going to it. It's too difficult for me to install an ethernet run to it, so I'm stuck having to use the cable run. Are there modem/routers that have a cable OUT so that i can feed this TV its hard-wired signal?

Thanks,
bob

A:Separate router and modem vs Router/Modem combo...

i would not see any advantage

but why not try it for a week and see if it disconnects - that is what you are trying to fix

also you wont get a faster speed if the download is set to 3Mbps and all wireless modes B,G,N will be faster than 3Mbps anyway

How many devices do you have connected to the router and when you get the disconnect is it for all of them

it maybe a dns issue - but you would need to see if the new modem/router setup has resolved the issue anyway

A:modem/router combo to just modem for use with new wireless router

Not much, if anything, we can do. To configure the modem/router into bridge (modem only) mode you have to login. If you don't have the login/password the only thing to do is reset it to factory default settings.

Two potential problems with doing that ...

a. They may have disabled that function also.

b. You have to know the settings needed to connect. (Usually not a problem with cable service.)

what are the steps i need to take to switch from an internal modem to an external modem? can i just remove the internal modem, put the system back together and plug in the external?
i know i need to remove the internal drivers first, then do the uninstallation of the internal one. any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have right.....just remove any entry in device manager of internal modem first, and have your external modem drivers handy when rebooting to be installed when windows finds your external modem.

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.

Alright heres my story. I had a regular cable modem and SWG would work fine. The day I switched to a new Cable/Phone Modem I couldn't connect anymore. (Also note that nothing has changed on my computer besides the modem switch) I have troubleshooted with SOE, Comcast, and even Arris (The company who makes my modem) and nobody has a solution for me. I have no firewall running and I'm connected directly to the cable modem. I also have tried uninstalling and reinstalling SWG and still no luck. Also, My internet works fine besides any games by SOE.

Any ideas?

When i want to switch directly to the modem i can not access the web. I have a dlink di-524 and am running windows xp home editions. I am just turning off the switch for the wireless card and connecting straight to the modem. I can connect if i reboot the modem but is there another way instead.
 

A:switching from wireless direct to modem

The cable modem will only allow a connection from one MAC address. There is no easy way around it, other than power-cycling the modem (as you discovered). Depending on the model of network adapter that you have in your computer though, you might be able spoof it's MAC address to match that of your Dlink device.

Goto the control panel -> network connections. Right click on your network connection and select properties. Click the "Configure" button and then go to the "Advanced" tab. Do you have an item listed "Network Address" or something similiar in the list? If so, select it and then key in (no spaces or colons) the MAC address from the DLink (which is normally printed on sticker on the bottom or back, or you can get it from the web-based config page). Click OK and then reboot the computer.

However when I power down unplug the old usb modem and plug in the new ethernet modem/router nothing happens. I have gone to network connections and clicked on LAN and clicked obtain an IP address automatically. Within network connections I also have the Orange connection which I have also tried doing it on.

I would disconnect the cable going from the switch back to the modem/router combo. You're right. This loop is not proper. Loops should never exist on a switched network.

I changed the IP address of router from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2

But I get only WIFI connection to connect to phone and not correctly getting the connection on desktop through the ethernet.Sometimes i get the connection and sometimes the connection lost.

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.
 

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together
From a John Will Post

http://library.techguy.org/wiki/Connecting_two_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).

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

I'd put the Westell in bridged mode, which will then emulate your old configuration, which apparently worked properly.

So I have AT&T DSL. I bought a Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem/WiFi Router that is compatible with my service.

Previously with this Modem/Router it would constantly drop the wireless connection for the Wii I have that was used to stream Netflix.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​
I have read that one of the Routers has to be set to "BRIDGED" mode, yet I don't know which device has to be Bridged

Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)Click to expand...

this is being set into bridge mode - by changing to a modem

then connect the modem to the WAN on the router and you should be good to go

Do you have a wireless laptop that you can you can put next to the wii - would be useful to see the quality of the wireless signal and how many other wireless are there which may cause interference

put xirrus onto the laptop and put the laptop next to the wii and post a xirrus screen shot

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

I recently got qwest DSL and I configured my Wireless to work and accept my wireless MAC Address, but when I plug it into the WAN slot in the Linksys router it doesn't work. I went to linksys site and did their configuration which is changing the router LAN IP to 192.168.0.1, then power cycling, but this doesn't help. I cannot access the internet still. Both the modem/router and the router are operating DHCP, but if I disable the modem/router, I cannot access the wireless function, and if I disable the DHCP on my Linksys router, I cannot obtain an IP from the modem router via the linksys router.

This is frustrating lol.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am by no means a network expert but have set up multiple wireless networks for friends. Right now I'm trying to help a relative setup a network where he has a basic Belkin wireless G router behind a Speedstream 4200 modem/router, and we can't get it working. The best I figure is that both are trying to perform the function of router and thus conflict. I dealt with a very similar situaion last summer that took a few hours or trial and error to get working, but unfortunately I can't remember what settings I changed....something having to do with bridged mode and DHCP server in the modem. Can anyone help?
 

A:Wireless router behind Speedstream 4200 modem/router....need help configuring.....

Welcome to TSG:

See if this tip from Johnwill,addresses your issue.

Connecting two soho routers in a network

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).

Also FYI:I believe that the "primary" router in this scenario,is the modem/router.

I have a significant problem with my computers not recognizing my d-link router. I screwed something up today and now my router won't work. I have had the router for years working just fine, but today I was trying to connect a new kindle which wouldn't connect to the Wi-Fi and I lost the router after screwing around with configuration.

Basically I've been trying to re-install the router, I changed the SSID but it appears the d-link quick router setup software recognizes the modem as the router and won't re-intall my router thus denying me access. Has anyone ever ran into a situation such as this? Please help...
 

A:D-Link Software recognizing modem as Router, router not working

Find the reset switch (usually a smal hole and you press a paper clip into it for ~5sec).

That will bring it back to day-1 default settings.

Unless you are attaching to the modem/router using USB, there's no software to be installed
(that's only used for USB) - -
just cable the eithernet cable to a LAN port on the router and then you can configure it

a. Bridge the modem/router unit so that it bypasses the router function and acts as a modem only. Or,

b. Change the address range used by one of the routers, say, to 192.168.3.x. Or,

c. Use the second router as an ethernet switch and wireless access point per the following recipe.

You would need to change the LAN IP address of the DIR-615 to another subnet such as 192.168.2.1 for a modem LAN port to router WAN (Internet) port connection unless the DIR-615 can be set as an access point. Will need to check the User Manual to see. Will pull up a PDF and check.

Another option would be to set up using the following method by John Will.
Connecting two soho routers in a network
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.

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).

Hopefully one of these will lead you in the right direction.

Hi Guys...

What is necessary when switching from a standard router to a wireless router? Can I just unplug one and plug in the other without having to tweak anything?...The desktop PC is on the blink...my Toshiba laptap is wi-fi ready..I just want to be able to get on the internet using my laptop until my desktop is repaired using wi-fi.

Thanks
 

A:switching to wireless router

Well, that would depend on what the existing router is connected to. What's the exact make/model of the modem in question?

Obviously, besides just "plugging it in", you'll have to configure it for your environment, specifically the wireless channels, SSID, and encryption.

I try to help a friend do some computer stuff for his business and he currently has an 8 port Linksys router that has a few ports that no longer work. So it is time to replace it.
He has purchased a Cisco RV082 8-port Router. We need to switch this out with his current failing Linksys. Is pretty much all we need to do is call Windstream(his ISP) and tell them we are switching out the router? For his internal network he just has about 8 devices that connect to it. One of them is a wireless tp-link switch, network printer and the other devices are computers.
When setting the LAN can I just set it to automatically spit out IP's?
And would there be an thing else I need to do??
Just worried about taking down his network and not getting it back up for the next business day.
Thanks for the help.

A:Help switching out a business's router

I'm not a business network expert, but this would be my approach

When setting the LAN can I just set it to automatically spit out IP's? Click to expand...

how is it setup now - should be able to look at a couple of PCs to see how they are setup for manual or auto IP
also log into the old router and see how the LAN is setup

the printer may have a reserved manual IP assigned

does windstream provide a fixed IP or does the router loginto the service - I would check the settings on the router and make sure you know any broadband username and passwords
also make sure windstream do not use mac address information, if they do - then they would need to change the mac address for the new router - or you need to clone the old one

If your existing dsl modem is a combo modem router,this tutorial from linksys might prover helpful

Also,here is another tutorial on the same subject:
Your modem probably is a modem/router combo.Here are some possible fixes .

a. Bridge the modem/router unit so that it bypasses the router function and acts as a modem only. Or,

b. Change the address range used by one of the routers, say, to 192.168.3.x. Or,

c. Use the second router as an ethernet switch and wireless access point per the following recipe.

A:DSL modem router to Linksys wireless router

If the Linksys's WAN had any configuration other than "dynamic connection" to work with your previous service, you will need to change that.

If both routers are using the same LAN subnet (192.168.1.x?) you will need to

a. change one of them (e.g., to 192.168.3.x),
b. bridge the modem/router to make it work as a modem only, and then do whatever configuration is needed to connect to your DSL service, or
c. configure the Linksys as a switch and wireless access point.

While (a) is probably the quickest and easiest short term solution, either of the other two are preferable unless you have a need for cascaded routers. Solution (c) is ...

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

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Greetings!

I have a problem. I have a cable modem CISCO 2100, INTELLINET wired router, D-Link 10/100 switch. Modem is connected to router along with 3 other computers, switch is connected to router along with 2 other computers. Now all that works fine.
When I try to connect my TELINDUS 1132 ADSL wireless router to switch, I can't access the wireless router, which is http://192.168.1.1/. Why I do this? Because I want to setup my wireless router to work with my laptop in a wireless way, but I can't even access the router.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
 

A:Modem+router+switch+wireless router

Without the wifi connected, use IPCONFIG /ALL and look for the Gateway address - - that should be your 192.168.1.1[*]

Now connect any computer directly to a lan port on the new wifi router BUT leave the WAN port empty!
Again use the ipconfig and look at the Gateway address - - it MUST NOT BE 192.168.1.1 - - that would create a conflict.

While connected like this, change the router address (say 192.168.2.1), limit the DHCP range to something like 2-16, set a new admin password and save the configuration. You will need to login again and now setup the WiFi SSID and passphrase for your encryption. Disable Remote Management and do not allow port 8080. Save the configuration once more.

Now you can add the WiFi router, but let's talk about the wiring.

You now have

Code:

Modem=Router#1--Switch--devices(3)
|
+--- more stuff(2)

The TELINDUS 1132 ADSL is intended to be a modem+router so you will need to
connect a LAN slot on the TELINDUS 1132 to a LAN slot on a switch. (leave the DSL connection empty).


Code:

Modem=Router#1--Switch--devices(3)
| |
| +---- TELINDUS 1132 . . . WiFi Connections
+--- more stuff(2)

ALL your devices will now be controlled by the 192.168.1.1 router shown at the top[*].
The new wifi router on 192.168.2.1 will control the WiFi access, but never assign an IP address. This creates a single LAN subnet and any active device can be configured for all windows Print/File Sharing.

Verizon DSL modem is connected, it gets an IP from Verizon 74.x.x.x and it also gives an internal IP as well so that you can connect to the interface 192.168.0.1

So I connect a plain jane 4 port router and change the IP address to 10.0.0.3 and internet great good shazaam on all computers.

Then I connect a Netgear wireless router to one of the LAN ports on the first router (it's upstairs in a separate house) and I should then disable DHCP and give the netgear an IP of 10.0.0.254 right? Well, once I change the IP of the Netgear, it reboots and I am not able to connect to the router using 10.0.0.254 and I have to hard reset it.

Am I missing a step here?

The 3 computers on the second router needed their DNS specified to be 192.168.1.1, and the second router setting itself set for DHCP instead of typical PPOE.

So basically there is a cable modem in one section of the house with a conventional router attached to it. That router supplies me with a ethernet cable. I would like to put a wireless router on the cable that I have so I can use my computer in a different location. Will this work?

A:Should I purchase a Router/Switch/Modem/Router

The thing you linked is a modem-router, so it connects to the internet AND routes traffic between all the computers connected to it. Good.
Looking at the ports behind, it has only ONE Ethernet port. Bad, and where your issue is.

If you want to go 100% wired, you need an ethernet switch. It's a device that is smart enough to route the ethernet traffic from more than one PC through a single cable, but dumb enough that is plug and play.
Something like this is cheap and tiny (i've seen tons of exactly the ones I linked and their bigger 24-port collegues in all companies with decent internal networks). Plug the ethernet cables from your router and from the computers into any of its 5 ports, as it doesn't matter, and you are ready to go.

If you want to do something fancy like connecting ethernet (network cable) devices to your wireless modem router through wireless connection without buying wireless adapters, look for a Wireless Ethernet Bridge. These do need some setup to be integrated in your wireless network (as someone has to tell them the name of the wireless network they need to connect and the password), but it's usually straightforward as they are much simpler devices than the modem-router you have already.

Hi. I'm looking for an easy to follow guide to do the following.

I have an SMCD3GN (from Rogers) that is both a Modem and a Router. I also have a Linksys WRT54G router that I used to use before.

The SMC is giving me a lot of problems. The connection is really bad often and my internet speed drops for no reason all of a sudden. I'm getting fed up and want my old router back.

I know it's possible to change the SMC into a modem (put it in bridge mode) and then connect my router and use the Linksys router instead of the SMC. The problem is, I don't know exactly how to set it up and would really like an explanation.

I already know how to get into the SMC and Linksys settings as an admin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:How do I put my Router/Modem in Bridge Mode and Use a Different Router?

Nothing about bridging in the SMCD3GN User Manual.

Found two articles that may help you.

Apparently the SMCD3GN has two levels of programming, a user level name/password and then an administrative name/password.

This is probably a better discription of how to do it.
http://www.thewebtechreviews.com/2011/04/02/my-frustration-with-rogers-smcd3gn-modem/

This second article is cited in the first and contains both name/password sets.
http://www.jonocono.ca/ramblings/2010/10/03/rogers-n-gateway-smcd3gn/
Be sure to have the router connected to the modem and the modem's wireless turned off before implimenting the bridging.
According to the articles you lose your ability to access the modem's User Interface unless you do a factory reset which kills the bridge.

Hi guys I'm new here so please be nice


OK! so before i changed to TPG ADSL2+ i used to be on optus cable using a Netgear Wireless N router. then when i got TPG, i need a router but found out i had to get a combo modem/router. so i got an Open Networks 824RLW which has wireless G.

This unfortunately in my double brick double story house isn't good enough for some pc's. So i know there is a way to do it but i dont know what it is... I'd like to disable the wireless (G) of the Open Networks and keep the modem of it working (and possibly the ethernet ports) and connect my Netgear Wireless N router and use it for wireless (N) and wired networking.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Assassin.

A:Wireless N Router + ADSL2 Modem/Router

Welcome to Seven Forums!

You can certainly do what you describe. It will come down to reconfiguring the two routers.

First, reconfigure the ADSL router (824RLW) to turn off the wireless. I looked at the manual and you can disable the WLAN.

Next, on the old "N" router, disable the DHCP server. This will prevent it from handing out addresses. Also give the NetGear router's LAN port a static IP address on the same subnet as the 824RLW. make it's outside the DHCP range though.

This last piece is important. Connect a cable from one of the four LAN ports on the 824RLW to one of the LAN ports on the old "N" router. NOT the WAN port! The routers have two sides, WAN (Internet) and LAN (Inside). The radio and the switch ports are on the same side (LAN). That's the side you want.

By doing this you bypass the Netgear's router function completely.

Can't the DSL is the input and ALL connections to the device will (internally) use the router portion. The bandwidth you see is NOT restricted by the internal router however - - it's the DSL itself.

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" 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

I get either request timed and occasionally could not reach host server or something similar.
Is switching channels my only solution to removing packet loss completly, or is there something else I can do?

I have a 2wire DSL/router that emits a terrible wifi signal. I have a Linksys WR110 that I want to use as my primary wifi on my home network. Problem is I can't figure it out how to make it work. Is it possible to run a cable wifi router off a dsl/router to use as an access point? or a stand alone WiFi point and just have the DSL/Router using the Lan ports only?
 

A:1 DSL modem/router and 1 cable router

If it was me, I'd do the following:

1. Turn off the wireless in the DSL router.
2. Turn off the DHCP server on the Linksys router.
3. Setup the wireless of the Linksys
4. Assign a static IP address to the linksys router in the range of the firs router. e.g. If your current IP for logging into the first router is 192.168.1.1 then change the Linksys to 192.168.1.105 or something.
5. Connect the DSL router from Port 1 to the Linksys router Port 1.

In effect, you use the DSL router to assign IP addresses on the network, and use the Linksys mearly as a wireless access point.

I have a Westell model A90-210030-04 modem. I am interested in buying a router for the hardware firewall but if I'm understanding everything correctly that I've been reading about it online, I will have a problem. From what I understand, this modem has a router in it but it doesn't have the firewall. According to what I've been reading, if this is true, the two routers will have conflicts. I have searched online but haven't found anything that gives a definite answer. Does anyone know the answer to this? Does this modem have a router in it? And if so, is another router just asking for trouble? Thanks for your time!
 

A:Is it just a modem or a modem/router?

yes, no and maybe -- here's the scoop.

First, you really want the software firewall on every PC connected; the XP/SP2 and Vista FWs are ok but COMODO and Sunbelt Personal FW 4 give you more control.

Second, the Modem is a DSL modem so your ISP connection is over the phone line.
A better choice (if available in your area) would be Verizon FiOS or any Cable company.

Third, you can always add a router->router connection; here's how
Code:

modem(without internal router)---(wan)Router#1(lan-ports)--- your systems
If you need more connections or want WiFi you can expand this to be
Code:

modem(without internal router)---(wan)Router#1(lan-ports)---(lan#1)[B]Router#2[/B](3x-lan ports)--- your systems

In router#2, disable DHCP and the device acts like a switch. if it has WiFi -- great, router# will provide the DHCP service for ALL connections.

What if the modem already has a router? Just drop Router#1 from the diagram

Hi,

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.

1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 0.0.0.0 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.

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.

Just received a DSL modem from my ISP. It is a Westell e90 610014-o6. I'm told it is both a modem and a router. Does this mean it is a wireless router and I can do away with my old Belkin wireless router?
 

A:Modem/Router?

This is a wired only router, so you'll probably need the Belkin if you want wireless connections. Here's the way to connect that Belkin to the new router and retain the wireless capability.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, 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).

Hey,

I installed a new router/modem for a family member (I believe it was a TP-Link archer D9) not too long ago, maybe 6 months.
They have had an ADSL connection with the same supplier for a long time.

Now the supplier has offered and set up FTTC and I presume VDSL and sent a new router/modem, Technicolor TG589vn v3

This means the TP Link router/modem no longer works with their connection.

So now the question is,

Do I set up the new unit as just a modem and forward to the old unit for use as just a router.
- If so whats the best way to do this

or

Do I use the Technicolor unit and reconfigure the network, loosing the advanced feature of the TP link and the money spent buying the unit.
There are multiple computers, wireless printers, smart TV's, synology NAS unit, mobile devices etc on the network.

For about a week now I've been trying to set up a VPN for my home network. I've tried many different ways to do it including the built in Vista and XP VPN and even setting up a virtual Ubuntu server. When I try connecting to the VPN from my iPod I get an error message saying "The PPTP-VPN server did not respond. Try reconnecting. If the problem continues, verify your settings and contact your Administrator." I have attached (I hope) a picture of my network topology. Unfortunately my router isn't able to act as a VPN server so I can't do that. Also when I try to connect to the VPN I'm doing it from inside my home network, not sure that that affects anything tough.

What wireless n modem router should I get?*Ok, so basically I used to live in a two bed flat and I've now moved into a three story house so realistically I need to go for a wireless n modem router. I've got a media centre pc which will have a wired connection into the router

I also want to use my xbox as a media extender using wifi (i have a wireless n adapter for this) and I want use my iphone's wifi function and possibly another media extender (not purchased yet) in the garage. I'd be streaming HD content over the network.

I want to know what router most suitable.The broadband connection will most likely be ASDL rather than DSL but I'd like to have recommendations for both.

Thx

Alex

A:Which modem router should I get?

You will have a wide variety for that as what you need is for home purposes.

Here are three that are fine and affordable prices:

Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (Premium Edition)

D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N Router

Netgear Wireless-N Router WNR2000

P.S I would recommend you Netgear and Linksys make.
