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.)

Hi all I have two devices One is a Linksys WRG G router The other is a PC running the Smoothwall router software with URL filtering Either would work fine on its own as a router I m wanting to use them both though because each offers different features Right now the Linksys router is connected to the WAN and is my DHCP server Its IP is The Smoothwall box has a static IP of I want all web traffic to go through Smoothwall because it offers good web filtering I know I could use Smoothwall as my router and rid of the Linksys but the whole idea behind this is to use the QoS and other features that Linksys firmwares offer such as Tomato or DD-WRT all content for web router/gateway through separate Force traffic filtering but still keep the ability Force all web traffic through separate router/gateway for content filtering to filter URLs So is there any way to do this This works if I manually set the proxy server on each machine to point to Smoothwall but I d rather it Force all web traffic through separate router/gateway for content filtering be totally automatic if it s possible Would really appreciate any info Can t quite figure this one out Thanks nbsp

Hi,
I have two routers but I dont know where to set the IP for the second one. Any suggestion?

By unableing DHCP in the second router it will still be possible to access the internet? It looks like by doing that the router turns to swicth, is it?
 

Relevancy 79.55%

My current set-up is DSL Modem>Linksys RVS4000 router > 24port unmanaged switch (2 switches, 1 line from router into each switch).

I have a NAS and a few network printers, all addresswed by IP; everyone else is on DHCP.

What I want to do I bring in a second router (also an RVS4000) and plug that into either switch 2 or 3 (currently off and unused). The stations that get fed from this 2nd router will be email only, no internet, but still have to be able to see the NAS and printers.

I know how to block the traffic in the router; I know that I can put them on a different IP range (one router 192.168.1.x, the other 192.168.2.x), but doing that the second router users wouldn't see the NAS or printers on the primary router.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

A:Attempting to cascade via LAN between two routers

Better to use non-interfering channels, unless your environment is too crowded for that. What you described sounds OK. Can you narrow down the problem? Does a device connect to the router used as a WAP? Can it ping the WAP? Can it ping the primary router?

Here is a complete procedure known to work for many, many people.

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! [TerryNet Note: assume that all routers made in the last five or six years or more have auto-sensing ports.]

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

I need advice on how to best cascade two multi-wan routers:

Each router is connected to multiple DSL lines using load balancing.
Each router's Lan is on a different subnet.
The outermost router has Lan DHCP disabled and feeds a static ip into one of the Wan ports of the 2nd router.
The 2nd router has Lan DHCP enabled, and connects to the home Lan.
The system works, but suffers from severe latency and slowdowns.
If I remove either router from the cascade the network is blazing fast.
I know there is the issue of double-nat, plus possible loops causing the slowdown.

If anyone can suggest configuration changes, I would be grateful!

Thanks in advance for giving my post your consideration,

I am currently in search of web-content filtering solutions. I am very satisfied with openDNS and how it works on my LAN and Wireless Network. That being said, we live in an apartment building, and openDNS can be easily skirted by connecting to one of the numerous unsecured WiFi networks within range.

I have researched ways to prohibit connection to unsecured Wireless Networks, but I realize that may post a problem or me if I am traveling or need to get online at a hotspot. What I am really looking for is a way to either apply openDNS to the individual laptop (MacBook) in addition to the network, in hopes of maintaining the filtering of openDNS no matter what network I'm on.

Is this possible? Alternatively, is there a solution that offers what I'm looking for but doesn't use openDNS?

Thanks,

James

Just recently acquired a new RV220W Cisco router, and I found the content filtering on it actually works, so I added the word "proxy" to the filtering list to keep my son off of those "proxy" sites that allow him to surf the web anonymously.

The only issue is that with this keyword blocked, I can't use my phone to connect to my cable boxes at home through the Optimum app. As soon as I disable the content filtering, I can access the cable box again.

Does anyone know how I can block "proxy" AND use my app on my phone, or will this be a constant "you can only use one at a time" feature?

I do have the ability to add a specific URL into an "exception" list, but how do I find out what that URL is that I need to add?

Is anybody familiar with the SonicWALL Content Filtering System (CFS)? My school's admin has it on our network, and it's a big pain. Sites that have words like games or kazaa in them are filtered out, even ones that are just informative, like when I'm trying to do research. How does it work? And, does anybody know a way of disabling it? Maybe just on one computer, if it's possible by the way it works, which if the way I think it works is right, then one computer probably won't work. Anyways, thanks for the help!

How good is the Fortigate content filtering? The searching around I have done tends to talk more about filtering malicious sites etc as opposed to filtering based on content.

Anyone have experience with using a Fortigate for content filtering?

If you want a taste you can always download the free Forticlient and enable content filtering on the local workstation. The categories are the same on the Fortigate but applied at the firewall vs endpoint. As I said the client is free.

Assuming you've got decent bandwidth I would suggested a 200D over the 100D. I run a 140DPOE, same performance as 100D, at home and with ~220mbps and full utm + ssl inspection I have pegged it..

I recommend AVG [not the Free version], as they have Server versions available with a Firewall that is unintrusive, but highly effective.

Have a look at this.....

http://www.grisoft.com/doc/5/lng/us/tpl/tpl01

As a matter of interest, I purchased the Professional single version of AVG two years ago, and have just renewed AVG with Firewall for the 2 computers here at home, as I trust AVG to do its job [another two year licence, and its worth the investment too].....others might disagree with me and say Norton is better; however, Norton is very resource and RAM hungry next to AVG.

Why would the exact same message be accepted for one user and rejected for another?

Okay, so I have a Linksys E1200 with DD-WRT big and apparently blocking websites does not work for https.
So I wanted to try any network filtering tools out there but I am completely unsatisfied with any of them.

I have seven devices connected wirelessly. None wired.
I can wire one if required.

I want to disable file uploading and email sites on 5 of these PCs.

How do I achieve this?

Won't using OpenDNS filter out all 5 PCs rather than just one?

Please help.

A:Network filtering software and questions?

That's a very interesting question.

Most software firewalls will let you block traffic to and from any site you wish to add to a blacklist. That should take care of the email sites. If you want to block email servers, you can just block the ports for pop3, smtp and imap.

File uploading could be tricky, do you mean ftp-type uploads? You can block the ftp port (and the SSH port for sftp), but that would block both downloads and uploads via ftp (and anything that tunnels with SSH). Maybe look for browser add-ons or some more advanced Parental Control software?
Tough! I would love to hear some suggestions, as well

Not sure that router has port blocking by MAC address which would definitely work for the email.
Maybe OpenDNS will do what you want: https://store.opendns.com/setup/#/

Thing is, cheaper routers will have fewer options even with modded firmware, only so much firmware memory and CPU instructions available in the router. Have to buy a mid to upper class router to have real control over what devices have access to what on the network.

I am running Virtual PC 2007 on a Windows XP Pro 64-bit computer with 2 network cards.

One network card is wired into my switch, and is part of our domain.

The other network card is wired directly into a DSL modem/router and has nothing between it and the Internet.

I want my actual PC to use the "domain" nic, and I want my virtual pc instance to use the "non-domain" nic.

No matter how I have configured this, I can not get my virtual PC onto the Internet, even though I confirmed from my actual PC that both connections work.

Any ideas on how I can get this to work?

A:Program files; on separate partition or on separate drive?

You should differentiate between programs themselves and the files you are working on. The program files are loaded only once - when you start it up (or when you activate some subsystem), your documents are accessed more often - every time you save or load them.

How much are you going to use that swap file? If not that much (have plenty of RAM), then I would put the PS scratch files on the second disk with the program itself installed on the OS disk. PS end files (the images themselves) to the second partition on the first disk.

I think you can do it quite cheaply. I would use Linux as it's Very efficient at video playback. A dual HDMI output card is probably the only specific hardware you will need, most run-of-the-mill machines will provide the rest. Set up an extended desktop, drag the two instances of video player to their respective desktops and voilą. Not sure how the sound will work though.

see if the linksys doesn't have this interface where you can boost the xmit rate

"Go to the Wireless tab, then to Advanced Settings. Find the entry labeled Xmit Power"

Unless you change the firmware on the linksys or either router has the ability to do wireless bridging you can't get two wireless routers to talk to each other wirelessly.

Google WRT and linksys for how to's on the firmware upgrades needed to make a linksys a wireless bridge.

I purchased a Dual WAN router, but am having trouble switching over and letting my Server use the T1 while my PCs use the Cable.

So here's what I'm thinking. Can I have my server on its own router looking at only the T1, have all my PCs on the dual WAN router, and have them all see eachother?

Yes, you can use as many routers as you want, just remember the network speed will decrease as more computers are added.

Hook up one router to the modem then hook the other routers to it or even in series.

I haven't played much with multiple wireless routers, but we have several wireless routers running at work. I think you just have to make sure the computers within the overlap areas are configured to select one signal.

Also, if you have to run wires a very long distance, you can use routers to boost the signal.

Scope of Network on both Routers is identical 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255

disable DHCP on the wireless and leave only the Wired router with DHCP.

wire them in this sequence

Code:
modem---wired---(lan side)wireless....
any system can be wired to either router and the wired router will control all ip address assignments

the address of the wireless router does not matter as it will do no routing --
it's acting just like a switch.

Hey Guys been a while since my networking courses.

I have 2 routers 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs right now I have them both on different networks broadcasting different SSIDs. I want to move them both to the same network, instead of one being 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1 I want them all on the 192.168.0.1 network.

My plan is to simply apply the same SSID to both routers and subnet both of them within the 192.168.0.1 network to hand out addresses within their subnet.

Will this allow me to move throughout my house as if it was one network or should I have the second router act as an access point?

What are your thoughts?
 

A:2 routers 1 network

What is your Internet source(s)? One to each router or are they sharing one line?
If sharing one line, one has to be subservant to the other to function as one address network and if its two lines then even though you might have the same I.P. range they'll still be seperate networks...and confusing.
So for one network, yes, access point and simple switch for one router.
And if its two lines, therefore two networks, you can still communicate to each thru a proxy in the form of a computer with two network cards, one hooked up to each network, and then remote into that computer and network away!
I have two networks, one line, seperated into media and regular/work, so things like NetFlix and network media device playback work a treat without network congestion with the work network. Then I just use a computer with two network cards to transfer, maintain and what not between the two.

A:How do I network across two routers??

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

A:2 Routers, 1 Wifi Network

You really cannot connect two routers to each other, unless you have the ability to turn off the routing functionality on one of them to make it work like a simple switch. See if the adnin panel on either of them allows this type of reduced functionality operation.

I have DSL from Bellsouth and I have a block of static ips. These ip are used to all most fo my machines to gain access to the outside world.

I want to be able to set up a second router with privatly assigned IP's 192.168.x.x to work with my wireless system. I woud like them to be DHCP assigned.

Here is the kicker I want to use the Bellsouth Statics to give Internet access to the private IP's but I am not sure on where to look for this information or how to start.
I have a Netopia Modem/Router combo handling the STatic Ip's
I have a Linksys WRT54G handling the DHCP addresses

I thought bu configuring the Linksys router to have a Static IP address from Bellsouth would work but then again it didn't and I am here.

Hello,

I have 6 computers capable of connecting to a wireless network (2 PS3's, 3 laptops and 1 PC). I currently have a BT Voyager 2110 setup, which provides the wireless network. The 2110 is situated upstairs, where I use the network the most. However, I'd like to boost the overall range of the wireless network by utilising another router (A BT Voyager 2091, the 2110's predacessor), which would be situated downstairs, where the signal strength is very poor.

I know there are various other ways of extending the range, but I'd like to know if it is possible to use hardware I already have, without spending money on more hardware. As the 2091 would be situated downstairs, connecting the routers with a LAN cable is out of the question. Is it possible to setup the 2091 to connect to the 2110 wirelessly?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a new netgear wired and wireless N600 dual band router on my home network and it works great but the wireless doesn't reach all the way downstairs well.

What I would like to do is take the older router (Linksys WRT120N) and plug it into a cat 5 cable downstairs (the house is wired for cat 5 going into a switch that plugs into a wired port on the new router) and set it up so it works as an access point allowing for good wireless downstairs.

Anyone done this? What's involved?

Hi

If I was you I would go look in the local newspaper and get the cheapest one you can find. At least that's what I did and I have had no problems in 2 years sharing 4 computers on a network. I have a Belkin router(with 5 ports). That was the one that was on sale at the time I wanted to set up my network. Any of the ones you mentioned are fine. I think networks fail more because someone doesn't know how to set them up correctly or doesn't maintain them. The router shouldn't be a problem.

When I change the IP address of the secondary router, will that change the on-line configuration site for that router? The router manufacturer gives an ip to go to do the configs and I wonder if this will somehow change or not be accessable.
Click to expand...

Yes, when you change the base address of the router, that becomes the new address to access it's setup pages. As long as you follow the instructions and keep it in the same subnet as the primary router, you can access it freely from any connected computer. Note the detail of it being outside the DHCP server pool of the primary router.
Second, you say run the ethernet cable from the lan port on the primary to a lan port on the secondary router. This means ports 1-4 (it's a 4 port) and not the one that says "internet?"Click to expand...

Correct, you leave the WAN/Internet port empty on the second router. You are using the second router as a switch, and if it's wireless, you can use the wireless capability. I have a pair of wireless routers here on opposite ends of the house wired that way.

What steps should I take in order to make all computers accessible through both routers.

Don't know if this helps:
When I type 192.168.1.1 from a computer on the Motorola router, I get nothing, when I type in my actual ip address, I get the Motorola router. When I type in 192.168.1.1 from a linkseys connected computer, I get access to the linkseys router.

"The minute I switch to the wireless and disconnect the 1.100 range I can no longer print. I can still however ping the IP address."

This statement is confusing. What do you mean by "disconnect"? Like you have a pc on both subnets at the same time?

Can you ping from the .1.x network to the .3.x network?

You wouldn't have this issue if you had setup the WRT54G as a wireless switch not as a router. Everyone would be in the same subnet which is what your issue is about; not all being in the same subnet.

A:Network between routers fail.

From what you are saying you have the switch plugged directly into the modem which is not how it should be.

You need to plug the Modem into the WAN port on the router first then plug the switch into one of the router's LAN ports. This is the reason your network is not reliable.

Switches are always plugged into LAN ports on the router not the modem.

If you are going to use two routers you need to turn off DHCP on one of the routers plus some other adjustments will be required, link below explains the process.

A:Please Talk Me Through How To Set Up A Wireless Network Using 2 Routers

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Im having problems with my home network. I have two routers connected via Ethernet network cable. The secondary router I changed the ip adress and set dhcp to disable the primary router has no setting changed every thing is working fine but the wifi on the primary router. Is there a setting I need to change? Any help would be great guys thanks

I have two Netgear routers (N150 and DG834) and want to set them up so that in my office (external to the house) I have wired internet connection and in the house wireless, the office is too far away to run the wireless for the house there. The router in the office is connected to the ADSL line with the router in the house connected to it via a network cable.

I have disabled wireless on the office router however when i try to run both routers together I get an IP Address Conflict, I know I need to change the IP address so that they don't conflict but when I have tried this it hasn't worked and I have had to reset the router to the able to access it.

Any advice and / or solutions would be gratefully received.
 

A:Network Multiple Routers - IP Conflict

If you are cascading the routers (LAN port of first connected to WAN port of second) they have to use different LAN subnets. Since they both probably default to 192.168.1.x change one of them; for example, to 192.168.3.x).

If you want the office and house devices to all be on the same local network connect/configure 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).

I am trying to connect two routers to simulate different networks for testing purposes. For the sake of simplicity, one of them has a network address of 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 and the other 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0. First of all, do I need a patch or cross-over cable? I tried connecting them both ways but could not even ping the other router. Do I need to set up routes in both routers configuration? Does it make any difference what routing protocol I choose?

If there are any resources on the net that provide a crash course in these topics, please point me in that direction.

Well, next week I am wiring my house with CAT-6. I'm going to have a firewall, and 2 routers in the computer room, from the firewall, CAT-6 Cables will go through the house to the living room, the garage, the bedroom, the kitchen and the work shop. All of which I am planning on giving their own routers, preferably all the same type; but I can't decide which one to use. Should I use the Netgear WGR614:


or the Linksys/Cisco WRT54G:

This may seem like a slightly bizzare request but basically me and my housemate have just moved into our new house and we have separate desktops in separate rooms that are too far apart to reach via a wired connection and there is no space for cabling through the Using connections Network Routers Home different 2 from walls due to the amount of graphics cards being used in each desktop as well we were unable to install a wireless card due to lack of PCI slots meaning a wireless connection is not really an option unless we use a USB wireless connection which we are trying to avoid due to speed issues I was Home Network Using 2 Routers from different connections therefore wandering Home Network Using 2 Routers from different connections if its possible to use separate routers plugged in to different phone plugs on the wall to allow us both to access the internet We are not bothered about being on a network or anything like this we only wish to both have fast internet access I called the o tech support people and they claimed that if we used a different router plugged into a different phone plug this would allow us both to use internet just on separate networks and i would just like to ask if anyone knows if this is true Home Network Using 2 Routers from different connections Thanks in advance Hotcrossbun nbsp

A:Home Network Using 2 Routers from different connections

Well you can do that... Sure. Well just use 2 modems and then one router and plug both of the modems into the router and then connect the router to the computers!

I'm hoping someone can tell me some specific setting to use to correct an intermittent problem. My configuration:

Main wireless router: D-Link DIR-655 connected directly to my cable modem. Internal network address is 192.168.0.1.

Connected to this router (by twisted pair cable) is a second (older) wireless modem: Linksys WRT54GS with address 192.168.0.254.

Most of the time, each router works perfectly and internet access is perfect. The problem I have is that occasionally when a device connects to my "primary" router (D-Link), the assigned gateway by DHCP is the IP address of the "secondary" router (Linksys). When that happens, there is no external web access.

Any network gurus out there that can explain this and help correct the problem?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Solved: Problem with 2 routers on same network

It sounds like you have 2 DHCP servers on the same network. That will never go well.

How are your routers physically connected to each other (LAN to LAN, LAN to WAN)?

Log into the web page of the 2nd router and disable DHCP. Ideally, you could be using the Linksys just as a switch and wireless access point. Connect nothing to the WAN port of the Linksys, and connect LAN to LAN on both routers.

That's how I do it here.

The 2nd way to do it would be to set the LAN IP range of the Linksys to 192.168.1.* and daisy chain your two networks (LAN port of Dlink to WAN port of Linksys) . This would destroy any existing peer to peer LAN stuff like file/print shring you may currently have, but it would allow every PC to access the internet.

Hey guys, so I recently signed up for Centurylink Prism TV and internet, they use a Cisco DDR2200 (modem+wireless router combo) which I've come to realize is only a "g" router, so I purchased a cheap Belkin N150 (which I intend to use as my main router). I've turned the wireless function off on the Cisco and have an ethernet cable running from a LAN port on the Cisco to the internet port on the Belkin.

The issue I'm having is how do I set up the IP addresses/DHCP servers for both routers? By default, the Cisco's IP address is 192.168.1.254 (I know, weird right?) with a DHCP range of 192.168.1.63 - 192.168.1.253. Whereas the Belkin's IP address is 192.168.2.1 . I guess I'm sort of at a loss on how to set this up to optimize my network. I appreciate all of the help!

Hello What I am trying to do is set up wireless routers on the same network Here is a diagram of my shop that i am trying to do this in The first router is set up like this Modem Router port switch Router Now i have a router set up the orange square in the on up 2 same Setting network wireless routers office and it broadcast the wireless signal about as far as the orange circle i have it set up as with the dhcp turned on to Setting up 2 wireless routers on same network give out - The second router set up in shop is connected with a cable running from the switch to shop Its ip is and the dhcp is handing out - The cable running to the second router is plugged into LAN port not the WAN port The wireless on Router will not reach Router hinse why i Setting up 2 wireless routers on same network hard-wired it I have one computer plugged into LAN port of Router and i am having no problems with it My problems are with the laptops trying to run off the wireless They connect for a minute then disconnect They are not out of range because i have them sitting right next to Router I can set it up to were Router network is diffrent from Router and i can get on the internet Setting up 2 wireless routers on same network fine But the desktop wired to Router needs to be on the same network as everyone elses on Router because there are files on the server hooked to Router that we need access to If someone can give me a hint on what i am doing wrong for Router it would be appreciated nbsp

why not let the first router do all the DHCP ?
