Q: Change in bandwidth with different routers

Hello all I have been playing around with my home network of late and noticed some surprising at least as far as I m concerned results For work I require a hardware VPN so I was using in Change routers bandwidth different with a Sonicwall TZ W as my firewall and a asus rt-n u as a access point because the TZ s wireless is pants With this my peak download rate was Mbps and upload Mbps I then bought a linksys E and flashed it with DD-WRT and used that instead of the Sonicwall as soon as I plugged it in I noticed a Mbps increase in my download rate Upload increase was neglible if any I then decided I wanted to change from having a firewall and AP to a all in one solution since there was no real need to have both so I bought a Asus RT-N U flashed it with DD-WRT Now this router is amazing Change in bandwidth with different routers and I can t rate it enough with DD-WRT it is off the charts Much to my surprise I now had a peak bandwidth of Mbps down and Mbps up which is what my ISP originally quoted me when I got the line The results from the RT-N U you could say is not surprising with it being a far superior router but the E vs a TZ I m confused somebody please enlighten me Oh and the setup on E and the Asus is Change in bandwidth with different routers identical Alastair nbsp

Preferred Solution: Change in bandwidth with different routers

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Change in bandwidth with different routers

My gut reaction is - - cudos to DD-WRT.
There are three factors for routers (especially when they get real busy):
clock speed of the processor
memory
the code/firmware

It is well known that DD-WRT is very good (read tight/small) and that allows the hardware (cpu + memory) to perform at its best.

Hi, I have a single network with wired and wireless connection. I would like to control bandwidth usage by the users because some users just download big files while others watch movies on the network.
how best and how first can I solve this?
is it possible for me to allocate bandwidth to a specific access point?
I badly want to find users who are watching movies or downloading big files and control them.
thank you

My Friend has a HP Pavilion DV2000 Laptop. His display isn't work. Suddenly display gone. But I thought it could be Display problem not a VGA. So, i tried to connect an external monitor and used Shortcut keys to change the display. I pressed fu + F1 or Fu + F2 or Fu + F3 or Fu + F4 up-to F12. But no result.
I couldn't check whether it's a Display or VGA card problem. IS there any other way to check it. in addition to these is there any other combination keys to Change the display to an external monitor. I'm unable to check whether i get login or not. if I can login then i can use Windows Key + P. Then i can select mode. But I'm Unable to anything here.

If one has a NIC with 'jumbo frame' capability, how important is it to pick a router having this capability on its gigabit WAN? I've no interest in LAN, as I will never have more than one PC, so this question is entirely focused on gigabit WAN and jumbo frames. Thanks.
 

A:Routers & 'jumbo frame'

More than likely you would not be able to see a difference in Jumbo frames on a local LAN/WAN vs. standard packet encapsulation. Unless you are moving a crazy amount of data back & forth between a fileserver, NAS device, your PC & the WAN connection. However, to utilize a jumbo frame encapsulation you would need a router or a switch that supports it.

Here is a few links to learn more about Jumbo Frames & Packet Encapsulation:

This is my configuration:
GPU - ATI Radeon HD 5770
STOCK COOLER
MONITOR 1280X1024 4:3 Ratio
CPU - AMD FX-8320
Motherboard - Asus M5A97 R2.0
RAM - Kingston HyperX 2 x 4 GB DDR3 1600 MHz
Hard Drive - Western Digital 1TB Blue SATA3
PSU - Thermaltake Smart SE 530W

Now, what should I buy:
1) New cooler - Probably the COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 EVO
2) New GPU - any good suggestions?
3) New Monitor - any good suggestions?

I'm using it for video rendering and gaming.
 

A:What should I change on my PC with $250?

I would not worry about the CPU because it is a decent processor. The cooler I would not worry about unless you are overclocking the CPU. If you are then yes, get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It will bring the temps down a good amount over the "Stock" cooler. I would suggest getting a monitor (something with Widescreen and 1920x1080 resolution). You could probably get a decent monitor for around $100 to $150, then look at getting a better graphics card. You may have to save a little extra money for the graphics card, but it will be worth it in the end.

A:DNS change failed

I'm far from an expert on anything internet, but I had a similar experience when Verizon changed servers on me, and my router failed to track it.

I called Verizon tech support and they reconfigured the router for me while I was on the phone.

You can also try opening a command box and type, "ipconfig/release", wait a few moments and type, "ipconfig/renew" (obviously without the quotes). That will only work if the issue is with the computer, but not the router.

Don't despair though. Someone who actually knows what they're talking about could be along any minute...

Hello all,

I use an ADSL modem for accessing Internet in my home. I think my wifi password is stolen. I wanna change it but I have a computer only in my office and use the Internet in my home by my iPhone. Is there a way to change that password with my iPhone or should I surely use a computer to do that work, please?
 

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

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

I read about a DST CD = Dell Service Technician CD that has this option but I can't find one.

It's not a real important thing but when I use the Dell System ID application it reads the Bios Service tag and not the real system tag that Is registered to me.

Q: Routers

When I had Time Warner Cable Internet installed, the router I have now came with it. I had Verizon before, and a router came with it What if I decided to buy another router? Like something from Netgear or where ever Would I still have to pay a fee to the provider I was using at the time.Would it be the same cost as if I was still using their router?
 

A:Routers

That question you should be asking your provider.

I know we would have had to pay an extra fee to get a box with Wireless. But since we already had Wireless in-home, there was no need in even thinking about paying an extra monthly fee for it.

However if you return the device to the provider. I don't see how they can continue charging extra, if that is what they are doing. Most providers (I'm assuming here because that has been my experience) consider the modem as a free device, for buying their service. If that is the case, there is no extra fee.

My living arrangement has it so that my computer is about 25 yards away from the router. I have high speed internet, and if I'm on a laptop right next to the router, I can easily get 30 mb/s. But when I'm at my computer which is 25 yards away, I get speeds of about 8 mb/s or less (often 1 - 2 mb/s).

The router and wireless adapter that I have both seem to be top tier, but I'm not sure:
http://amzn.to/1pcUvtF
http://amzn.to/1oiLkbI

My question is, are there any *significantly* better options than the ones I just linked, as far as signal distance? Or is the current technology in routers and wireless adapters limited?
 

A:The max range of wireless routers and adapters

To directly answer your question: No.

What should help you out: Drop it to 2.4Ghz rather than 5. That will get you increased range, and through that at a fixed range - faster speeds. You'll lose the ability to run 802.11ac and have to fall back to 802.11n, but you'll be happier since you weren't getting ac speeds anyway.

A:Realtek HD audio manager, change a mic port to a headphones port?

I doubt very much if this will be possible. The mic and headphone ports are wired directly to the Audio section of the motherboard, there connections cannot be altered.

Your best bet is to get the damaged port repaired.

I've heard if you use a router you don't need a firewall because the router already has one.
Does that hold true if your hooked up to the router wireless?

Yes, it stands true if you hook up wirelessly. Just make sure the router is secure. Also, Windows and OS X have a built in secondary FireWall.

As the title suggests- I have issues.. Just moved out to the rural countryside and had to get a satelite setup for internet access. We got the 30GB package and after a WEEK, they claimed we hit our limit. Ok so back in city life we had a 25 Gig package on broadband and never had an issue with three of us on it. I downoaded the Networx bandwidth tracking package and while good it has issues.. so heres my Question: What software package OR hardware device is available out there to track usage for a family of three wireless Inspirons and a lan cabled IBM Business computer? I can't install any software on the business computer so I set mine up to monitor router traffic hoping to capture all traffic - but this only works if my computer is on. Is there an easier way? As I'm not a techie please use very simple words and suggestions. Thanks
 

A:Bandwidth, bandwidth and more bandwidth issues...

Having 30GB a month sounds pretty good to me, my parents live in a rural area and have 5! a month limit. They are through Dish, there aren't a whole lot of sat internet providers in the US, and they are all pretty similar in usages and charges from what I recall. Dish has a way to track your usage on their website, I assume HughesNet, WildBlue, whatever things are calling themselves now (essentially in the US at least, you are going through something that is either those, or is owned by those). So, you should be able to watch your usage in somewhat real time on their website.

If you live outside of the US or have some provider I am unaware of, I would be they also have a website interface that will let you track. The only downside to this is that you have to take their word for your usage, but that is pretty easily determined if you can control your devices for a short period of time and do a download test (grab a linux ISO at 650 megs). It should match up, if not, then you are getting scammed by your ISP and you should google to see if anyone else is having the same issues, this is HIGHLY unlikely though.

Bottom line, you are overthinking it, just use your ISPs counter on their website, if you think their's is wrong, post back with some details on why.

Hello Everyone !
Right now I am using a broadband connection as my Internet connection and I have a dsl modem which is wi-fi capable. Two of my frnds share the same Internet connection through wi-fi. The problem is whenever any of us watching YouTube videos or downloading something, the whole speed is consumed by that particular computer. I know that many new modems have the capability to limit the bandwidth usage these days but mine is an older one. So I was wondering if there is any way I can limit the bandwidth for each computer.
Thanks !
 

A:How to limit the bandwidth for each computer on a wireless network?

You have to have a modem you can log into an has that type of feature. If you are wired into the network, you should be able to limit the wireless bandwidth and keep your wired bandwidth up. Normally go into the modem, go to setting and wireless setting to limit it.

I have two networks set up in my home .I have all wired computers hooked up to router A that is router / modem combo . All wireless and other wired computers hooked up to router B

I have two subnet mask. Some one was saying if I use same subnet mask on both routers , I would have problems.Should I be using the same subnet mask? What is subnet mask ? When should I use two subnet mask ? I thought every network needs it's own subnet mask? Or data would not know to be sent to router A.

Also router B does not need to know the gateway or DNS of the ISP , all it neesds to know is the IP address of router A.

I read that DHCP should be disabled on router B . I do not know why that is the case.
 

A:Should two routers use the same subnet mask?

Yes, you need the same MASK - - but there are bigger issues than the mask itself.




Q.a) Also router B does not need to know the gateway or DNS of the ISP , all it needs to know is the IP address of router A.

Q.b) I read that DHCP should be disabled on router B . I do not know why that is the case.Click to expand...

If you wire from A(lan slot) --->(lan slot)B (ie leave the B wan port empty, then you will use B as a switch, not a router - - very effective and 99% of the time, the solution you were after in the first place. If B has Wifi, that is still operational !!.

We disable DHCP in the B router to make Q.a true. Router A's DHCP will control all devices attached to either A or B.

Now to assist in allowing B to be configured while attached this way, it needs an IP address on the same subnet as A and A needs to never allow DHCP to handout B's IP address.
SO:

on A, set the DHCP range from 2-100 (that's more than reasonable)
on B set its IP address static to 254 (if A is x.y.z.1 then B is x.y.z.254)
[edit]
If B has WiFI, then you can modify those settings with the browser
http://x.y.z.254 and enter the user/pwd for router B
[/edit]

btw: if you wire A(lan)--->(wan)B, then B will enable NAT and devices on A will not be able to access devices on B.

Lookup the manual for that router and find the QoS information.

You can then set the QoS to downgrade streaming video and leave everything else alone. It WILL impact all streaming video however.

Hi everybody been searching the forum but didn t find a solution for my situation guess it s not very common Where routers, connection wireless two Two one LANs, I recently moved there s a shared connection What I got is a wireless LAN and an ethernet cable both coming from a router I do not have access to this router What I need is to create another wireless network to connect all my stuff smartphone a Two routers, two wireless LANs, one connection tablet a WDTV windows and ubuntu laptops without having to share the internal traffic with other people but still going out to the internet via the only shared connection I already had a Netgear JNR router so what I did is connect the ethernet cable to it and create a new wireless network The router changed its IP address to to avoid clashes DHCP is still active I tried connetting stuff and everything works mighty fine Everything Two routers, two wireless LANs, one connection except one windows laptop This one laptop Windows enterprise sees everything in the network but can t reach the outside world I tried disabling DHCP but that only worsened the things because my android devices cuoldn t get Two routers, two wireless LANs, one connection an IP address anymore To make everything even worse the non working laptop is the one I use for my job so I will connect using a VPN Everything works fine if I connect to the pre-exixtent wireless LAN so I don t really want to change a lot of things Does anybody have any suggestions to make this laptop able to run free on the internet Thanks a lot in advance nbsp

A:Two routers, two wireless LANs, one connection

Just to verify, you now have a layout like

Code:

ISP==router#1----Netgear JNR3210(10.0.0.1)- - -wired & wifi
|
+--- wired & wifi

* you have NO control over router#1 and it does NOT have an address of 10.0.0.1

Yes DHCP is necessary on BOTH routers.

? all systems connected to 10.0.0.1 have Internet access?
ie the 2 smartphone, a tablet, a WDTV, 2 windows and 1 ubuntu laptops

EXCEPT the Win/7 and the non working laptop is the one I use for my job, so I will connect using a VPN.

Sorry, VPN will never work. The VNP needs port forwarding from router#1 which you do not have control.

ISPs around my area (Memphis) charge about $10 per megabit for uplink, so 10 megs up costs $100. That's pretty expensive compared to something like Google's Kansas City project where you get 1000 megs for $70... but I don't live in Kansas City.

Is there some trick to buying cheap bandwidth? Some way to bypass ISPs?

Then its not an issue with you specifically.

Take this as I'm thinking out loud as I don't know for sure. The virus would need to overwrite the router's firmware and be specific to each model they infect. A BIOS or Firmware virus would be a non-productive effort in creating them.

A:Am I able to change my graphics card?

Well if the system has a 6670 in it already then the motherboard has a PCI-E slot so either the 550Ti or 7770 you picked will be compatible. You need to find the model and wattage of the PSU first though, to make sure the new GPU is getting enough power.

Just curious but why did you decide to buy that system if you were intending to change the graphics card? The mobo and PSU may be of questionable quality so you would have been better off choosing and assembling your own components.

hi !, i am running a system with intel core 2 duo processor and gigabyte motherboard. In my BIOS the first boot device is HDD, now i want to change that to CD/DVD, but i cant change them...

after entering Advanced BIOS settings -> Hard disk boot Priority [Press Enter]

but when i press enter it is showing the order, but those are disabled, i tried +, -, pu, pd but they didn't work. Does any one know the solution...?
 

A:How can I change my boot order

You're looking at the wrong item. Go down one line until you see "First Boot Device." Change that to the appropriate CDROM device. You can also set the second and third boot device if you wish. What you are doing now is choosing which hard drive (and hard drives only) will boot ahead of the other hard drives. So if your hard drive is selected as the second boot device, this will tell the system which hard drive to look at first. That is, if you had more than one. If you only have one hard drive, that would be unnecessary.

You may also press F12 to temporarily change the boot order for that one time only without entering the BIOS.

A:Multiple routers 6

Starting from the modem;
isp = = modem --->(WAN port)ROUTER#1​then to have ALL systems on one network, daisy chain from R#1 to the next but
ONLY connect (LAN)-->(LAN) between all the others. Router#1 will now control
al DHCP assignments - - even for any WiFi router in the chain.

This requires that ONLY R#1 have an active DHCP, so each of the others need
to be set to disable DHCP.

1) One-by-one, connect Router#x via wire to a system, use your browser to access the
router default address, login using the user/password for that router, and DISABLE DHCP.

2) Many routers come preconfigured for lan address 192.168.x.1 where x is 0,1, or 2

Every network can never have duplicate IP address and if allowed, will case network failures.

As you disable the DHCP, also set a new default LAN address 10.0.x.1
where X is 1,2,3,... N and use a new X for each one you've fixed.
Thus, if ever they are wired R1(lan)--(wan)R2---(wan)R3---(wan)R4)
the addresses would be 10.0.1.1-->10.0.2.1-->10.0.3.1-->10.0.4.1
(but you don't want that for routing table reasons)

3) also change the default password for each router.
If your system login password is abcdefg,
you might set the primary router#1 password to abcdefg#1
router#2 to abcdefg#2 and so on.

let's confirm what you are asking . . .

Code:

yes, that is possible. the second router acts as a bridge and wired systems can use it.

to use 2nd router with wifi to 'shared connections' you need another wifi router, eg

A:Two routers and cannot access a networked printer

the issue is the wiring. If you took the link from router#1 to the wan side on router #2,
then there is no means to access router#1 resources.

fix:
a) use your browser to access router#2 setup (I assume you know how, if not ask).
then disable the DHCP service in this router
also disable the remote management port 8080
save the changes.

b) now take the wire out of the wan slot on router#2 and move it to a lan slot, leaving
router#2 wan empty.

Router#2 will then operate as a switch but still retain the WiFi support. All devices connecting
to it will get IP addresses from router#1 and thus have access to all resources.

A:Two Linksys Cisco routers unable to communicate with server

this issue tat the server must be communicate to the both router at the same timeClick to expand...

hmm; as you express it, this is literally impossible.
There should only be one DHCP server on this lan. With the addresses you've provided, the server has only one connection to the router and thus it can literally read/write to one device at a time.

Code:

==== router#1
(128.1)
|
+ (128.08) Server
|
+ (128.100) router ===
I fear you are attempting to connect each router to an ISP and get twice the bandwidth;
usually it is wired like this

Code:

===router#1 ------ server ---- router#2 ===
the server would need two NIC cards, but this never works due to the routing tables.

Hi guys!

Recently, my laptop (Compaq Presario CQ50) battery passed away and unfortunately, the day after, the same thing happened to my AC adapter. Actually, the adapter itself works perfectly, except for the socket inside the laptop.

It seems this part is loose and no power can now reach my laptop. I don't care running my laptop only plugged to the wall outlet since I'm using it only in the living room. It's old and the replacement battery is quite expensive (I could not charge the battery without a working ac adapter anyways).

I was wondering if it was possible to buy only the socket and also how to replace it?

Thank you!

Okay guys, I have a router that runs to my xbox through a wired connection. Im getting a new pc and need another connection running to it. The only problem is the ethernet cable would have to be around 40 feet long to reach to where my new pc is going. I am also moving my xbox to the same spot as the pc so i would need 2 40 foot long ethernet cables..should i get the 2 cables or can i set up a new router right beside where the pc and xbox will be if so how would i go about doing this.
 

A:Two routers...?

easy. If you have an extra router already, use it. Otherwise, by a switch.

The wiring is
router#1 (lan) -----------(lan) new box (lan) --- xbox + new pc

The swich makes this a plug-n-play install (ie nothing to do).

If the new box is a router, then

first disable the DHCP service in it
then leave the WAN slot empty when making the connections

I have a T1 backbone connected to a Linksys wireless 4 port N router running 2 hubs and 1 websmart POE switch. I need to bring in another network on the same T1 backbone, keeping it separated from my current network with it's own DHCP router. I'm thinking I need to go from the T1 to a hub uplink port, then out to the ethernet port on both routers. Keeping the current setting on #1 router 192.168.1.1 and assigning an IP to the #2 Linksys router 192.168.2.1. I'm not sure if this will work, but it seems right, right?
 

A:How do I connect T1 to two DHCP routers, setup two networks

Thanks Rick

Thanks for your input Rick.
Currently I do have the T1 in the WAN port of my Linksys wireless router. This is my network DHCP server and has been working great. We have a school moving into my church building and I'm trying to provide them with their own LAN and internet. I'm not going to spend the cash for VLAN stuff, not cost effective. So I guess I'll just have to give them a router with static IP routing and their IT guy will have to assign IP's to each of their machines. My Linksys router is managing about 20 user stations and 5/8 wireless each day. This leaves me about 20 IP avail for my network. I could easly manage the school's needs without another DHCP router, but I don't want them to see my shared folders on my network. The static solution is the only one I can think of. Plus I don't want to use up my IP's.

Hi,

Basically I live in a relatively big house, 2 Computers / 1 Console Downstairs and 3 Computers upstairs.

There is currently a Ethernet cable going upstairs into a computer, can I put that cable into another router and utilize it as a switch to then have 3 cables leading out of that router into the systems upstairs?

any information on this would be greatly appreciated I have been searching around google but nothing looks reliable to me, I have a fairly good knowledge on Hardware / Networking, but still studying.

thanks
 

A:Two routers on network

Put the cable to the upstairs computer into a SWITCH (not a router) and everything will be managed by the original router just fine

Good morning all,
I have notice that sometimes my PC's get very slow when downloading from internet. I have a T1 and a DSL Line. The T1 is primary use only for internal traffic between sites. The DSL line is suppose to be use only for web traffic and also as a backup in case T1 goes down. The part that I dont understand is that if someone is downloading anything from the internet it also affects T1 traffic. Can anyone please tell me how can I track down what is actually happening. If Im d/l from web why slows T1 as well?

Thanks

A:Where is my bandwidth?

It is non-trivial to get TWO connections to the Internet to operate together.

My guess would be you are starting the DSL first and it is taking all the traffic.

Test you connectivity by disconnecting the RJ11 phone link ,
disconnect the RJ45, wait 30 seconds and then reconnect.

Now watch your bandwidth.

A:How to link two routers?

the physical wiring would look like this

Code:

modem---(wan.side)router#1(lan.side)--- wired or wifi connected systems
|
+---(lan.side)[B]router#2[/B](lan.side) - - other systems
Note that router#2 wan slot is left empty.

Be sure to disable the DHCP service on router#2 and this will then leave router#1
as the master and in control of the whole network

Ok, so I have a DSL modem/router, and I was wondering if I would be able to use this router and connect another router to it with an ethernet cord that would be about 70 feet long, then connect another ethernet cord to the 2nd router and make a run of about 200ft to a PS3. It has been my understanding that Cat5e is rated for about 100 meters, which would be within this 270 or so ft that im trying to run this....a small diagram of what im wanting


Ethernet wire (200ft).................................................Ethernet wire (70-80ft)
------------------------------------------------------++++--------------------------------------------------{+++}
PS3.......................................................Router 2 ..........................................................Dsl Modem/router


Would this work with this kind of wiring, and if so, do I just connect the wires and tada? Or is there some technical stuff that I need to do?
 

A:Two routers

you are spot-on.

The sole trick is to first disable DHCP in router two
(connect system directly to it and have nothing else connected;
use your browser to access the config page of that router).

Then make the connections so that the WAN port of router#2 is left empty - -
Router#1 will be in control of all connections to either one AND you can
even have WiFi active on either OR both (suggest you use different channels if Both are active).

I know my roommate uses ports TCP that vary from 40-50,000, on his host. But the router only restricts ports based on IP addresses that are based remotely.

Would I have to find out certain torrenting trackers' IP addresses and block them that way?

I have a Gigabyte Ultra Durable 3 motherboard MA785GM-USTH. I have tried several times to set the BIOS to boot first from a cd/dvd. It does not change the boot order. I continues to boot from my hard drive. I want to boot from a UBUNTU CD and I can't. Can someone help?
 

A:My Gigabyte BIOS won't change the boot order

My short answer here to this, is that it sounds like your BIOS needs a swift kick in the pants! Maybe the BIOS just needs a jump start, maybe to get things back on track. This is just a real quick little fix, if it works.

1. Remove the computer from power, unplug the power cord from the power supply.

2. Take the side panel off your computer case, exposing the guts of the machine.

3. Look for the motherboard, then look for a small shiny chrome colored battery.

4. Remove that chrome colored battery off the motherboard.

5. With the battery removed, take your hand and press the (power) button on the front of the case.

6. Keep that button depressed and or pushed for approx. 30 to 40 seconds, while your computer BIOS is drained of it's power and hopefully it's current setting.

7. Let off the (power) button, replace the chrome battery back onto the motherboard, replace the side panel of the case and reconnect the computer power cord to the back of the power supply.

Now turn on your computer and see if that helped take care of some things! Again, this is just one of those quick fixes that may or may not always work.

Hope this helps.

One router is a 2wire dsl router, which the printer is connected to now by wireless.

the other router is a linksys router connected to cable internet.

2wire router is current set to 192.168.0.1 addresses

linksys is connected to 192.168.1.1 - addresses.

Do i have to bridge the routers together via ethernet cable?

and if so will i still be able to keep each isp separate on each router?
 

A:Possible to share printer on two routers with different ISPs?

the issue to be solved is the shared printer can only be on ONE subnet and still be shared.
192.168.0.1 has the printer now and it can be shared by all systems attached to that network.

the 192.168.1.1 subnet can't share anything (files or printers) with systems on 192.168.0.1

Why the two networks? Joining the routers can be done, but you will need to drop one ISP.

A:How to use bridged modem + multiple routers

One thing I noticed from reading your post was that the problem you are trying to solve (not having the port opened to the DVR on the same network as the PoS) would not be solved by placing router C behind router B. You would still have to open the port on router B to allow it to pass to router C. Wouldn't this be the same as opening the port in router B to allow it to pass to the DVR (if the DVR was connected to router B)?

As far as the issues with AT&T, you can only program the IP addresses that they assign to you in the routers. They should be able to tell you how many IP addresses are assigned to your customer. If you have a router behind another router, only the one connected to the modem would have an IP address from the ISP.

Hello.

My title is a somewhat simplified version of my question, I will try to go a little more into detail.

I just bought a new router, Cisco E-3000. I want to bridge this with the old router, a 3com router.

Problem is, the old router is not mine. And I'm not allowed to remove the old network.

What I would like to do:
Set the new router up as primary router. Set the old router up as secondary. Keep the old security settings on the old router so that everything remains the same for the other users.(They don't want a password for some odd reason).

What is the point of all this?
I want my router to be on a different subnet, with better security and QoS. This way, my network stays better protected, meanwhile the other users will not even notice things have changed.

Would this be possible?
 

A:Bridging two routers of different brand

use the following layout

modem==firstRouter(lan)------(wan)newRouter----your systems

any request(s) from your systems will flow out to the Internet and back to you correctly,
but nothing attached to the firstRouter will be able to access the newRouter or beyond,
as firstRouter keeps its default route to be its Wan Side connection, not the port to the newRouter.

The newRouter(wan) side will take its address from the firstRouter.

You set the newRouter IP address to what you want and let its DHCP make assignments for your systems. The three common addresses for private LANs are

192.168.x.x
172.16.x.x
10.x.y.z
If the firstRouter is on say (#1), then set yours to 2 or 3 - - this makes it even more interesting for the upstream systems

one consequence: the new router will be isolated and thus no port forwarding will be possible,
reason: it would be required to port forward on BOTH routers. This may impact gaming or any 'servers' on your systems.

However, I really want to know what is the most important thing to do before I replace the battery. Do I need back up all my saved data in computer ?
Also, what if I do not replace the battery ? I mean what is the worst situation.

A:My computer constantly change time and date - question

Your bios setting will get reset, when you change the cmos batterry.

Take note of the setting, before changing the battery.

Your data on the harddrive will not be affected, by a battery change.

I always thought that a weak/dying battery caused reset to factory setting. March 2014 ??

I have just attempted to swap a hard drive from my dell to a compaq that someone gave me. When I power on the computer that the hard drive is in I get a blank screen. Did I do something wrong? Please help.
 

A:Hard drive change

Hi wcheard,

Welcome to Techspot!
Sometimes when you swap a hard drive over to another PC it doesnt like the hardware change.



Try the following:
Remove the HDD from the Compaq and re-boot the pc. Even though the HDD is missing you should still get a picture on the screen.
If you DONT get a picture with the HDD removed the the Compaq either has a) a faulty mobo OR b) there may a problem with the graphics card. This all dpeends if you have a graphics card installed or if you are using onboard VGA.

Hope this helps

James

ok here goes first post on any forum ever ! i have to try to get two routers linked at my cabin. the lodge has wireless but it doesnt quite get to my cabin ,i need to use my netgear router/ or buy one that i can link to the linksys router in lodge for two reasons . 1 is to get the net in the cabin but more important to be able to hook up an AT&T microcell for cell phone service ,,the micro cell ican do already it works great , if you have a router to hook up to .. any ideas ? or questions
 

A:Linking two routers

I assume you want a wireless connection between the two routers and then to allow
systems to wifi connect to either (or both with multiple systems).

The normal practice is to use an Access Point(A/P) for the second router, as it has the feature
you need (using a Bridge Connection) and which is missing in most routers
(typically restricted to Infrastructure Mode; if you find a router which has that feature, then you can use it as well)

The setup looks like
Code:
ISP==YourConnection--->PrimaryRouter - - - Access Point
The Primary and the A/P can use the same SSID and passphrase, but separating the channels (1 vs 11) will reduce the interference.

Now you're down to getting ISP==YourConnection--> to work.
Besides the Cell phone data plan charges (which can be exorbitant), the issue becomes
YourConnection--->PrimaryRouter.

Try using the Cell phone for a single system connection to determine the requirements for dialing the connection - -
if it's easy enough, you may be able to use YourConnection--->PrimaryRouter
otherwise, you may need to put one system in the link like
YourConnection--->system#1-->PrimaryRouter​which requires Internet Connection Sharing on system#1 (and that system must be active for all systems on the Primary or A/P to get any service).

SO. Where does that leave you?

A:Are my settings safe for linked 2wire & netgear routers?

I think you'd be better setting up your AT&T router as a switch, and then running your Netgear router as your main router.

DHCP should be setup on the Netgear router, and then that used to assign IP addresses to your networked devices.

Your AT&T one should have wireless disabled, DHCP disabled, and be assigned a static IP address. You can then use a cat 5 ethernet cable to connect the two routers.

Most of all, I would be setting up the AT&T as a DMZ, because you want the extra security it provides by isolating the internet from your private network (Netgear router).

In your situation you want the AT&T router to act purely as a switch, and nothing more. Your Netgear router can handle everything else. You also need to be aware that setting up a DMZ is more for public network devices, e.g. for webservers, so you can place them in the "public" area for net access, and hide your private network (Netgear in your case) away from it. You do not want to be connecting any devices to your AT&T router if it has DMZ enabled.

Here is a good, brief read on what DMZ is.

Hi Im trying to improve my home network Currently I have the modem and wireless router setup in my basement with one computer hardwired to the router and multiple laptops spread throughout the house However the laptops at the top of my house do not have good signal My house is wired with ethernet cabling throughout the house and walls to help or Routers Points Access Need with multiple network home setup What Need help to setup home network with multiple Access Points or Routers I want to do is to take advantage of this wiring and setup multiple routers or AP s throughout house not sure about difference Also to even allow some laptops to connect with an ethernet cable rather than wireless I am not sure how to do this currently All the ethernet cableing Need help to setup home network with multiple Access Points or Routers converge in my garage as an unfinished mess see pic I wanted to run a cable from my router to a plug in the wall which would take the signal to my garage I would then need some kind of device like a hub or switch but i am not sure what kind of device I was hoping it would then distribute the signal to the other wires and send it throuought the house I then wanted to connect another device that would like another router or AP in a another part of the house but am unsure what kind of device and how to do so If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated nbsp

A:Need help to setup home network with multiple Access Points or Routers

With Ethernet wiring available you have some nice choices;
use wires to access remote locations
and place wireless in the room(s) needed
Likely you can just wire to each floor and the garage and then let the wireless be accessed from those locations.

The Modem==>#1Router can control all the DHCP assignments and assuming that you only need four remote locations, you can use a 4-port router. If you need more than four, you will need a Switch, eg
Code:
modem==router---switch-- four connections
|
+---- three more connections
Each port from the router is wired to an Access Point or a WiFi router (doesn't matter so use whatever you have). The trick is
disable the dhcp in each Wifi device
attached the ethernet from #1Router to any LAN slot on the WiFi (leaving its Wan slot empty)
This will place all the WiFi on the same subnet as #1 router and sharing et al works across the board

WiFi setups:
start with just one to get the setup running and then you can use that as a template to
config the others. When performing this task, ALWAYS connect a pc to the Wifi device with a cable!

a) change the SSID to something unique to you but not obviously name, address ,,, (
you could add a suffix to it to identify one from the other

b) set a unique channel on each WiFi router to reduce interferrence.
(if you're using a DSL service, then make sure all phones in the house have a new filter attached)

c) enable encryption (WPA2 or WPA in that order) and set the passphrase (can be the same for all wifi devices)

d) for heaven's sake, change the admin password and save it.
(this will disconnect your PC from the device being configure so don't be shocked)

disconnect from the Wifi device and attempt a wireless connection.
Once this works, you can repeat for each of the others.

I have a new Medion Akoya P7360 (MD 8855) PC running Windows 7. I have been using Skype, and on one call my cousin couldn't stop laughing, he said I sounded like I'd been breathing in helium! I eventually pinned it down and discovered that it happens every time the PC goes into Sleep mode. After power-up, I can ring the Skype Call Testing Service (echo test) and it echoes back my message perfectly. If I put my PC into Sleep Mode (or allow it to do it automatically) then revive it, it raises the pitch of the microphone by about 5 semitones. I have tried a USB Phone, and this sounded OK. The only way I can resolve it at the moment is to re-boot the PC. I'm at a loss to think what the problem could be. I'm pretty sure I have the latest drivers. Anybody got any ideas?

Hey everyone. I'm looking for a router that has the feature of limiting bandwidth on the hosts on my network.

I live with a few roommates and they are always downloading, taking up all the bandwidth we get out of our ISP's monthly allowance. We always go over, and we all end up paying heavy fees.

Anyone know of good routers that have a feature that enables, say, "20 GB monthly for IP 192.168.x.x" or something like that? I know of routers that have QoS features that limit the download SPEED, but that really doesn't help my issue.

My router is TP-Link, so enough said lol. There's no features really to control this sort of scenario. I know D-Links are pretty good for controlling bandwidth and limitations.

Any ideas?

Best regards

Hello!

Bear with me here... I am a rookie in the networking business but I read through many threads and helpful "manuals"; however I have a bit of a specific question which I could not find anywhere...

After setting up my old US Robotics USR5463 router as an access point (DHCP off, static IP, used WSD) to be able to extend the wireless network (main router D Link Dir 655) I came across a problem of connecting another device to the "access point". My question is: Is it possible to connect via cable a device to the router number two after convrting it to an access point?

I hope the question is understandable...
Any and all help appreciated,
Regards,
Vlada

I have a Linksys WR54GS router as my main router attached to the internet. I run a Bed & Breakfast and I give my guests free access to the internet via WiFi. My problem is, I also use that network for my business and personal computers and I am afraid that a tech savvy guest could hack into my files. I thought that if I connect a second WiFi router, I could set up a second network which my guests could use to access the web thru my main router.

Does anyone have a clue if this is possible?

It mostly depends on the company that is your internet provider... With their sayso, you can do it easily... just be sure the channels are widely different, and that you can control them through your client setups so the customer understands what and where.

I want to make my IDE the primary hard drive and SATA the secondary. By default windows selects the SATA but I have issues with partitions and I want to use the IDE instead.
In my advanced features bios I am given three boot devices to choose as I will, but if I want to boot from a hard drive it doesn't give me a choice so it selects primary device being the SATA.
The standard cmos features show the SATA on channel 0 master and i'm given three options - none, auto and manual. Nowhere do I see an option to change the IDE to primary. How do I do this?

I have an Actiontec PK5000 connected to a DSL line. I have Linksys WRT54G connected to the Actiontec. I want the Linksys do the DHCP address assigning because the Linksys (with DD-WRT firmware) had more capabilities than the Actiontec. However, use the DD-WRT features (MAC blocking, etc.) the Linksys must do the address assigning (DHCP).

I can get the Linksys to do the wifi connections but the Actiontec is doing the DHCP. Turning off DHCP on the Actiontec and turning the Linksys DHCP on does not make the Linksys assign the addresses.

How can I configure these two routers to get the Linksys to do the DHCP?

From what I could find it seems that the eMachines ET1161-01 has a PCI-Ex16 slot.

I would recommend the XFX HD 4770 but it would cost about $112 including shipping.

If that's beyond your budget, the Radeon HD 4670 would also do fine.

NOTE: You will have to change your power supply in order to be able to use either of the cards mentioned. A good 400W PSU, like the Corsair 400CX, should be fine.
