Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together

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

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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, 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).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

I'm staying with my parents for a couple of weeks so want to connect my laptop to their wireless network. I have an ACER aspire 6930z laptop which uses Vista - I connect this at my house to my network with no problems (bebox). Here, my parents are on virgin broadband and have a belkin wireless G plus mimo router. They have other laptops connected to this network, again without a problem.

I can see the wireless network on my laptop and have entered what I believe to be the correct WEP key on my laptop to access the network. When I connect it is connected with limited connectivity (although the signal strength is excellent), Diagnostics says 'there might be a problem with one or more network adaptors on this computer'.

Would anyone be able to help advice me on what I might be doing wrong?

A:Cannot Setup Wireless Network (Belkin N1 Network Card)

I'm experiencing an almost identical issue. I had the same problems with the installation disc. After multiple install / unistall / restarts I was able to get the client installed. However, when I click to open the .exe nothing happens.

On top of that, the system is not recognizing the card. I tried all 4 PCI slots with no success.

I installed this same card (same model, different physical card) on a pc running xp sp3 very easily. Since that was so easy I bought another card for my windows 7 machine.

However, I was lazy and didn't do any research. Before I came upon this forumn I found a couple of google links saying this card was incompatible with vista (therefore incompatible with w7?).

Any else out there get this card working?

Hi there!

I have joined the forum since I need your help! I am trying to do the following:

Connect to the internet via a wireless connection and at the same time connect to an ethernet connection in order to access the local network. Unfortunately when I have both connections running only the ethernet connection takes precedence and the wifi connection is idle.

Hope you can guide me through some settings or software which can help me use both connections simutlanoeusly for different tasks, as explained.


P.S. I am using a windows XP SP2 machine.

Thank you.

From what I have read about this, it can't be done when both NIC's are on the same subnet or network. You can change back and forth by enabling or disabling the connections in "change adaptor settings".

If you want to use both connections at the same time you would need to have them on different subnets.

I have the belkin wireless network usb hub and when I connect any device, I can see the device in the control center software and when I click "connect" in the software it, the device also appears in my computer, but when I start using it after a minute the drive is not responding.

For example if I connect a USB drive/External Hard disk and try to access a song, the song starts playing after a minute, the song stops and the player does not respond. My computer also stops responding. The belkin control center shows the device still connected.

But if I connect a canon camera, the device is working very good.

Is there a limitation based on the amount of data through the device?

A:Belkin wireless network problem

1. connect the router to your pc via cable first.
2. Make sure the tcp/ip settings in the network connection you use is setup to 'obtain automatically' for ip address and dns.
2. In a browser window, type in the ip address of the router home page; It should take you to the Belkin Router config page.
3. Setup the router for DHCP. Some Belkin's take abut 35 secs to accept and reset the router after each change (for some strange reason!)
4. Setup up wireless networking, MAKE SURE you enable the security on it.

I got given a belkin network card too which if I put into my usb drive allows me to connect to the net. I can put the card into both my laptop or desktop and can connect to the net except I cant seem to do it when I only have it in one.Click to expand...

I got a little confused here. Is the wireless card you have a usb plugin? Which can obviously fit into a usb port on either pc or laptop?
Well, with only one wireless card, you can obviously only have one wirelessly connecting to the network/internet can't you?
The router will most likely have 4 RJ45 ports in the back, so you can plug the pc and laptop into them with cat5e straightthrough cables.
From then its just a matter of sharing resources on the pc and laptop between each other.

Hope this helps.

Okay so this is really screwed up. I had my Belgin 54g Wireless USB Adapter plugged into my USB port and everything was working, and then I left my computer on and went to sleep. Now, sometime when I was sleeping (***??) my computer decided it no longer wanted to recognize the USB adapter, and tell me it's not plugged in.

Of course I tried restarting, plugging it out and back in, and when I tried reinstalling the hardware, it said "The device is installed, but may not be working properly. The device cannot start. (10)"

So I don't know what to do right now... Please help! :D I can't stay on my sister's computer forever.

Hi, I bought a Belkin wireless G router a few months back and encrypted it within the first week, not writing my encryption passphrase down. Yesterday, the internet stopped working for a time and I thought it may be a software problem, so i reinstalled the Belkin utility on which teh passsphrase and encryption access was saved. I cant remember the passphrase now and so cant get past the encryption to use the internet. I've piled my pc into my room so i could plug the pc internet the actual modem and not the router. I dont know the encryption passphrase to use the wireless router, and thus cant use any of my wireless equipment, can anyone help?

A:belkin wireless network encryption problem

For starters I would try to connect to it through a ethernet cable directly...then you can reset your WEP key. If this is not possible, on all belkin routers there is a hard reset button. It should be located on the back. Hold this down for about 10 secs and your back to factory defaults.

Hope this helps.

I recently bought a N+ Belkin adapter, as my old adapter did not support Windows 7 and our household is upgrading to an N router soon.

The USB adapter (model number F5D8055) works fine on a vista desktop that is connected to the router, and will seemingly install on my Windows 7 rig, but it will not detect any wireless networks, or even enable. When asked to enable, it says it is enabling, claims to be enabled, and then continues to not work.

CD, of course, will not install drivers, as they are vista-only. The online drivers don't seem to work, nor does manually installing the 64 bit vista drivers from the cd.

Any ideas on how to make it connect? I'm fairly certain it's a driver compatablility issue

Hi there

Been having some odd issues with my wireless adapter for a while. Every time I boot my computer or wake it from sleep, it doesn't recognise my Belkin wireless adapter. This is resolved quite simply by removing it and putting it back in. Bizarrely, if I take it out and put it back in immediately it doesn't work, I have to wait at least 5 or so seconds before putting it back in. It works perfectly well afterwards, I have no issues with it. I know it's a fault with the adapter as I have tried another adapter on this PC and it doesn't do the same thing. The only reason I use it is because the other one periodically seems to slow my connection to a crawl or give me limited connectivity on the WiFi, but that's another thread entirely! I figured this issue would be simpler to solve.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I'd have to know the exact model number of the Belkin adaptor in order to help you.

In most cases it's easier to simply purchase a newer wireless N adaptor like the D-Link DWA-140 for about 12 bucks on Amazon.

Just purchased a new computer from best buy today with windows 7 (obviously), along with that I also purchased a belkin branded wireless network adaptor. I follow the setup directions all the way through until it tells me to restart the computer for the software to work. When it boots back up, it recognizes the network adaptor but the driver for the adaptor is non-existent like it never installed in the first place, thus the adaptor not being able to work and connect to the internet. I've also tried installing the driver with windows firewall turned off, but still no luck.

Here's the model number for the adaptor: F6D4050 v2

As a side note, this is my first computer that I've bought brand new....Everything else I always bought used, so I'm sorta on a rough start lol. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi guys!

sorry if this has been posted before.

I recently purchased a Belkin wireless network adapter for my HP windows 7 computer, and the checkout woman said it would work.

Unfortunately, it does not work. at first, it was just dodgy, connecting with only a small connection. It started getting better, but it would always cut out after a while.

A friend of mine tried to fix it, using lots of methods including the xlink kai method and others including downloading the drivers and another one which I can't remember. None have worked.

Has anyone got a really easy, fool-proof, easy understandable way to make this work please?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

You get the unidentified network cos w7 requires full IP settings to be recognised, if anything is missing like DNS or if an IP is not correct it will thru you that. I don't know anything about Bonjour, but i had that service running before and it seem to do anything.

Are you able to direct connect to your modem? if so connect and see see what details show in ipconfig /all?

Hopefully this is a relatively simple question.

I have a bit of an old Belkin Wireless card which I trying to get to work with Windows 7 HP 32bit.

As yet Belkin do not offer a driver for Windows 7 and their Vista one doesn't work. The Broadcom 802.11g seems to be possibly the one to go for. I've tried googling to download it though and there appears to be nothing from the broadcom website or elsewhere.

Any help?

A:Problem connecting to wireless network via Belkin USB adapter

I have just received an older PC, the low profile Dell Optiplex GX150. I freshly installed Windows XP with Service Pack 3Click to expand...

What's the "service tag" number and/or "express service code" number on that Dell OptiPlex GX150?


That Dell comes with an Intel Pentium III processor and supports a maximum of 512 MB(256 MB X 2) of PC133 RAM.

Yours has only 256 MB of RAM, so it's not going to run like a turtle. It's going to run like a snail or bog down.

It has only a 20 GB hard drive with an actual capacity of 19.12 GB, so it's not going to take it long to run out of free space.

That Dell is a "dinosaur" and isn't worth spending money on.


Have you installed the driver software for that Belkin N600 USB wireless adapter?

After using my Belkin USB 802.11g dongle problem free for years it has now it has stopped working. When I plug into USB I get an error beep and nothing happens. There is no networks found and the light on the dongle does not flash. The USB ports tried all appear to work fine (I can sync and charge my Ipod on them).
In desparation I bought another new adapter but it failed to install due to not detecting that it was plugged in.
I've tried rolling back a system restore but this did not work (I've not installed anything in ages but thought I would give it a try).
I'm not sure if this may be a driver issue. Anyway, hope you guys can help. Currently getting by with my other half's netbook.

A:Belkin N1 Wireless Router & Scientific Atlanta (Virgin/Telewest) Cable Modem problems

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

Hi I have just installed a new Windows 7 64-bit on my drsktop PC and I have found that i cant connect to my wifi because the driver for my Belkin F5D7050 Wireless G USB Network Adapter wont install.

I have made a backup of all the drivers on my PC when I was still running Win7 32-Bit so just to say the things I have tried to do are going into device manager and searching for a new driver for the USB2.0 WLAN which hasn't got a driver (this is the belkin adapter in decice manager) but it just keeps saying it was unable to find the driver.

I have also tried going on the belkin website and downloading the exact driver I need from there and installing the setup but also with no success.

If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you

Hey Guys.

I recently upgraded my DLINK DSL - G604T Modem/Router, to a Belkin N1 Vision Modem/Router because the DLINK wasn't reaching my Brother's laptop at the other end of the house. The day I bought the N1 Vision, I also bought myself a Minitar 802.11b/g/n* Wireless LAN PCI Card (Model: MWNPC-1). I set up the new Modem and the Network Card, only to find that everytime the Network Card connects to the new Modem it says "Limited, Or No Connectivity.". I have looked on Google for some solutions for this problem, but I had no luck.

Also I am running Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, Service Pack 2, 32-Bit.


A:Minitar PCI Wireless Network Card & Belkin N1 Vision Modem/Router Conflict

try to run setup wizard cd that came with the router on both computers. Then you need to configure your router

Then you need to write down the configurations. So you can connect to the network. Make sure its secure though..If you still have problems you still might be too far away...its hard to go through walls sometimes and the distance can be a issue. Might want to make sure also that your router and your wireless card can work with one another..

Every so often, my WiFi on my PC will just stop working. It will disconnect from my wireless network, and then when I try to manually connect, it's not listed. Sometimes a restart works, sometimes it doesn't. This last time I had to restart twice. I know the WiFi router is not having problems, because my phone and AppleTV stay connected and stream just fine. The first times I noticed this, I was actually browsing the web and talking on Steam when it occurred. The last two times however, I left my computer on to finish up some downloads, came back in the morning, and it had disconnected and corrupted my downloads. Any help is greatly appreciated, so thank you in advance.

when i double click the icon in my systray of the the flashing monitor, which opens my wireless network connection status window, the number next to Speed fluctuates between 11.0 Mbps to 54.0 Mbps. I just updated my dlink wbr 2310 routers firmware to 1.03 from 1.02 because previously i was getting randomly disconnected. Its only been a couple days, but i havnt yet noticed that ive been randomly disconnected anymore, but now my connection speed fluctuates, where with the old firmware, i never once saw it change. what could be causing this change? as its screwing up my online gaming, causing me to lag when it drops way down. I never had a problem with the speed changing before, and cant find any setting that looks like it could be linked to such an event, though im no networking expert, so i may be missing something. what does anyone think of this problem? thanks.

A:Wireless speed under wireless network connection status fluctuating????

google for a program called Network Stumbler. When it runs, you can see other
wifi systems near by and the real asset is the disclosure of all the channels in use.

pick a channel that is not used

monitor what activities you are performing when the connection rate changes;
it's likely that it only occurs when you're gaming. In that case, the stress of the
networked game is the actual cause of the rate change.

I have a Linksys WRT54G router. 2 my laptops are running Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Router configured as follows
- Permit only PCs listed to access the wireless network (2 MACs entered)

Despite all these configuration steps network considered as "UNSECURED WIRELESS NETWORK".
What to do to make it secure?
Thank you.


The reason it says that is because you are not using WEP, WPA, etc to secure the network. If there was a network key required then it would say "secured" if not, it says "unsecured". It does not detect that you have mac filtering, only that you have no network key.

Your network is just as secure with mac filtering(probably more) than using WEP.
If you'd like to test this, just remove one of your mac addresses then try to access the network.

If you still want to secure it using a network key, just look in the section for wireless security, you should find encryption settings. Just enter a WEP key using 64 or 128 bit HEX, I'd not suggest using ascii and you might want to stick to 64 bit if you are using cross branded hardware.

Can anyone offer my any advice as to how to find my wireless network through my USB adaptor hooked up to my desktop computer? I know how to access my router information (Enter for linksys and all that other good stuff) but do not know what exact settings I may needto change in order to have my desktop computer recognize the home network.

Is something perhaps hidden on the router information? Or is my adaptor out of date? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

Three things to try ...

If you have McAfee please see the sticky thread at the top of this (Networking) forum.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

I have an Actiontec GT701-wg DSL modem running a wireless network. I currently have two laptops with XP sharing the Internet connection. Since the modem has an open Ethernet port in the back, I was wondering if it might be possible to plug in a networkable external hard drive and have it available to both of the laptops wirelessly.

If it is possible, what setting would be required on the laptops to enable them to see the external drive?

My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. Anyone else seen this? Any way I can correct it? See image below:

A:Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area

Can only suggest you may not be using the latest wireless driver, but if you are, it must be a typo in the signature file written into the card's firmware which can only be changed by the manufacturer and may be noticed by them in the next release.

If its working, I wouldn't loose any sleep over it.

Have you tried any other browsers? SeaMonkey is a good one to try if you don't have another. You can still keep IE as default and have SeaMonkey for backup for web pages that may not display correctly in IE or when you have access problems like you are having now. Being Mozilla-based, it uses a different rendering engine. For those web sites that support pipelining, you may also find that it is considerably faster.

Check your connection settings under Internet Options. In the LAN section, try toggling the "Automatically Detect Settings" option.

I need to create a Wireless Network from my Netgear router we have on the computer because the Network that is currently in uses can only allow my mother's laptop to connect to the internet and will not allow other users to connect and no one knows the password and username to the router's settings so I'm thinking I need to reset it, but I don't know if the router had a installation CD with it and I don't know the ISP information or any other requirements to get a more accessable network working. Could anyone help me out?

I live in a large house that has ethernet ports throughout the house. I need to have two separate wireless routers to insure I have wireless coverage. There will be one upstairs and one downstairs. Is there any advantages or disadvantages in naming both of the wireless networks with the same name?

Thank you for looking.

A:Solved: Naming a wireless network using two wireless routers

I wouldn't use two SOHO wireless routers for this.

The better way is to use APs from companies like Aruba Networks, Ubiquiti, or Meraki. These companies have APs which allow them to operate as one unified wireless network without the expense of purchasing a wireless controller. By doing this, you have the ability to add APs anytime you want which will join the AP cluster and operate as a unified device with the cluster. It allows the ability to have the APs being aware of each other and as a result adjust their output transmissions so they won't be stomping on each other running full blast. It allows you to use one or more SSIDs which all the APs will service and hence more seamless roaming throughout your house; without issues inherent with using independent APs or with SOHO wireless routers configured to use the same SSID. These systems also have the ability to constantly auto select operating channels in both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands so your wireless network is always operating at the best efficiency/performance.

Can somebody add my computer to a wireless network (wpa2-psk secured) without having physical access to my computer?

A:unknown wireless network in manage wireless networks

Hi shayan8891 No, it's not possible for someone to add forcibly add your computer to a wireless network if he doesn't control your computer. What's the name of the network (we'll see if it's specific or generic) and do you recognize the password used for it (you can see it in the Properties of that wireless network)?

I looked in Device Manager and don't see a wireless network adapter but under Network Infrastructue Devices I see "Microsoft Wireless Router Module". Are these the same thing? Thanks for help!

A:Wireless Network Adapter vs. Wireless Router Module

The device listed in Device Manager would most likely be your NIC (Network Interface Card) on your machine. This is the card that sends and receives data to and from your machine.

Wireless Router Module is most likely some software which enables your machine to obtain DHCP requests from your router as well as support other features which would not have been made available with the default settings. Based on the place you found the module 'Network Infrastructure Devices' I can assure you that an infrastructure device is not the same as a NIC

If you are able to provide a screenshot I may be able to offer a better explanation

Hello Basically I want to find a way to use my Alltell wireless USB modem card to provide Internet access to computers We have a cradelpoint router network? wireless make card AllTell wireless to a an Using that accepts a USB wireless card but we do not want to use this router because we live in a very rural area and the router makes slow internet speeds even slower and with Using an AllTell wireless card to make a wireless network? the router we loose the internet connection frequently and have to disconnect then reconnect at least once a night We want to set this up but do not know Using an AllTell wireless card to make a wireless network? how can you help Plug the wireless usb card into one of the computers and have that computer then connect to a switch or hub so all the other computers can communicate with it Then enable Internet Connection Sharing on the computer with the Altell card This will basically turn the computer into a NAT server which will allow it to communicate with all the other Using an AllTell wireless card to make a wireless network? computers with internal IP addresses and translate requests responses to the Internet Do I have to buy a switch or hub how do I add the IP address in - I am lost in trying to set this up nbsp

A:Using an AllTell wireless card to make a wireless network?

Here are details if the computer with the mobile wireless card is running a Windows OS: Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Unless the router is defective or you are not positioning it well I can't think of any reason why it would slow the not-very-fast wireless connection. What do you get with something like with the card in a computer and what do you get using the router with only that same computer connected to it?

A hub is half duplex so can slow a network with multiple computers the same way Wi-Fi does, so best to use a switch. If the router you have has enough ports to connect all your computers you can use it as a switch.

i can't find any wireless network using my laptop.
i try to switch on the wireless using the hardware switch on the lapto(fn+f2) but the wireless led wont come on.

need help. flying off in a few days need the wireless to work. =(

A:Cant find wireless network. possible wireless switch problem.

Some laptops need drives to activate the appropriate "FN" designated commands. Did you reinstall the PC recently?
Are you near a network you can connect to? Go to library, most of them have free Wi-Fi.
Also you can try to activate the card manualy. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > and right click of your Card and "enable"
There is a low chance of this happening, but led might have burned out. Let us now how it went...

I am just getting the nerve to start my home network. I have a laptop and desktop both physically connected to a wireless router. I have 2 desktops downstairs that have wireless antennas/recievers. All computers are XP Home.

I want to network, and I have bought a "network for dummies" book. It does not tell me how to go about making sure I configure everything right.

Do I "add a network place," "set up a home or small office network," or "set up a wireless network" first?

Anyhelp to get started would be appreciated. Also, can I make it secure so no-one can just add themselves to my network?

Thank you so much.

You are better off forgetting all the wizards and following a home networking guide that does not use them.

You can find them from Google or these very forums.

When you rebooted your router, did you unplug every wire from it, for atleast 30 seconds?
