Home network: one wired computer, one wireless

Q: Home network: one wired computer, one wireless

Can anyone help me network my two home computers?

One is connected to a wireless network through a router; the other is connected to the router via ethernet cable (its wireless adapter isn't working; that's a problem for another thread!)

The laptop's network has a different name from the wireless network. How can I get them on the same network without having to hardwire the first computer or buy a new wireless card for the second?

Both are running Windows 7. Should be easy but I'm stumped.

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: Home network: one wired computer, one wireless

Well, if you want both to eventually be hooked up wirelessly, then I'd suggest that we attempt to fix the other computer's "wireless issue" first. But if you don't want to do that, then here are the steps I'd suggest for now:

Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, and then click Network and Sharing Center.
Click Set up a new connection or network.
Click Set up a new network, and then click Next.
The wizard will walk you through creating a network name and a security key. If your router will support it, the wizard will default to Wi‑Fi Protected Access (WPA or WPA2) security. We recommend that you use WPA2, if possible, because it offers better security than WPA or Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security. With WPA2 or WPA you can also use a passphrase, so you don’t have to remember a cryptic sequence of letters and numbers.

To connect your laptop or desktop computer to your wireless network, follow these steps:
Open Connect to a Network by right-clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area.
In the list of networks, click the network that you want to connect to, and then click Connect.
Enter the security key. You can either type in the key or insert a USB flash drive that contains the security key into a USB port on the computer.
NOTE: YOU WILL HAVE TO DISCONNECT FROM YOUR CURRENT CONNECTION IN ORDER TO SET UP A NEW ONE. ONCE YOU'VE DONE THIS, THE SETUP SHOULD BE RELATIVELY STRAIGHT FORWARD.

If you have any questions or need more assistance in setting up a new wireless connection, let us know.

A:Wireless + Wired Home Network

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).

I currently have two desk-top computers with Win XP networked hardwired through a router with ethernet cards (and sharing one printer). The router has room for two more Hook-ups. My question is that if I buy my wife a lap-top with wireless internet, can I take a wireless router and connect it to my hard-wired router so that my two desk-top computers stay wired together (with one acting as the server) but the wireless router enabling the laptop to connect?

Hello guys-- Happy Holidays.

A few years ago my parents wired the house using ethernet ports dispersed around the house. Since now my sisters use laptops with built in WiFi, I recently bought and installed a Wireless Router/4 port switch to enable the laptops to connect without having to buy wifi cards for the pcs (they are using hard wires).

I want to set up a Home Network (file sharing/printing) between 2 PCs and 3 Wireless Laptops.

First--this is possible right? I don't think i need ALL wireless components or ALL wired components for a network to work.

Also I have been trying to use the XP (all computers have XP) network set up guide but my computers won't show the network nor be able to see other computers connected.
What should i do?
Thanks in advance for your help,

A:Solved: Building a wired and wireless network in home

Either way will work. HOWEVER, I would suggest putting the router between the modem and the switch simply because it will enhance your network security. Your router will then act as a gateway and help keep your data secure from prying eyes. Then connect all your internal wired devices to the switch and use the wireless only for wireless devices. Your internal network will still operate at the speed of your switch internally, but all internet will only go as fast as permitted by your ISP. Which, being DSL, is not likely to be much faster than about 3 Mbps, YMMV.

If I plug in to my router directly I can browse my workgroup, access all shares without a problem. When I disable my onboard LAN card and enable wireless, I can't browse my workgroup or even ping the other computers by name or IP on my network.

I can browse the internet wirelessly, ping the router and the IP and subnet are the same when I'm using wireless or wired connection.

I removed and added client for MS networks, file and print sharing, removed all wireless security from my router and it still does not work. I don't know if its my Dell wireless card or an OS problem and don't know what else to try.

Any ideas?
 

A:cannot browse home network through wireless, wired works fine

On the pc that giving you trouble open this:

click on start
click on run
type: cmd
type: route print

See if it can see your network or your router when you connect wired or wireless?

click on start
click on run
type: services.msc
scroll down for wireless zero configuration make sure that's enabled

also look for network connections and make sure that's enabled
also computer browser is enabled
make sure xp firewall (built-in is disabled)

A:Wired and Wireless networking at home

For multiple routers, only the router connected to the modem has a wire in the WAN slot. For all others, connect to any LAN slot and leave the WAN slot empty.

Only the first router should have DHCP active.

All devices regardless of the connection type (wired vs wifi) or the device to which they connect (RouterA, RouterB, Switch1) will then have DHCP addresses on the subnet of routerA.

The 192.168.2.3 static address will be immaterial but can still be accesses to control WiFi setups.

Suggest one wifi router be set to channel X and the other to any other channel than X.

Yes, see following. If you are not going to use the wireless of the Netgear set the wireless mode to 'off' or 'none' or 'disabled.'

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.

A:Creating a secure wired network alongside a wireless network

That's the standard way to protect one set of machines from another, while allowing all to use the same internet access. The reason it works is the NAT layer on the second router--it protects its LAN from the other machines the same way it protects from the big scary internet.

If you are using Windows on the "show" machines try Microsoft Security Essentials. It should not adversely impact performance.

So I need to introduce WAP into my wired network so that I can take advantage of the wireless function built into the laptop and also thought I would buy a printer with a wireless function. I am thinking of buying Netgear DG834G v4 wireless router but need help on setting up and making sure it is secure etc. Any advice would be much appreciated

i have a wired home network comprising modem to router, router to main pc, router to
2nd pc and main pc to printer.
i wish to network a laptop with a wireless connection.
The 2nd pc has no wireless network card. Can i simply substitute the wired router with a wireless router keeping the present wired arrangement and add the laptop to the network. Is it possible to have a combined wired and wireless network and how do i set up the system so that each can use the printer and share files?
 

A:laptop to home wired network

Yep, you can just swap out your wired only with a wireless router and keep your main PCs current wired configuration. Sharing the printer is simply a matter of telling your 2nd PC to share the printer, then adding a network printer to both the other PCs - be sure to turn on file & printer sharing on each PC too in order to share files (and the printer).

Hi I am having trouble creating a wired home network As per instructions I will give you all the details first My network configuration is My internet service provider is Etisalat in the United Arab Emirates They have provided me with a Huawei HG F Router The router has four LAN wires going to four different sockets in our home Currently we are using only two sockets Study Room Bedroom Both PCs have Windows Ultimate bit SP I just started the Debug Log on my Huawei Router so don't have much of a debug log for this router but this is what it shows as of now HuaweiLog txt When I open the router administration page I have the following screens When I try to get the network map on my study room a Network How ? do I create Home Wired PC it says no network devices detected I am attaching the ipconfig all file for my study room computer ipconfigstudyroom txt Also I am attaching the Network Connection Properties window from my study room PC Now How do I create a Wired Home Network ? I will details the status of devices in my bedroom a From the socket I have used a cable to connect to the internet port in my Belkin Router N b From the LAN port of the Belkin Router to my Bedroom PC The ipconfig all file from the Bedroom PC has these details ipconfigbedroom txt The Network Connection Properties has these details And the Network Connection Map is so I have done this so that the Belkin Router can give me WIFI access in rooms close to my bedroom The Belkin System Log is here BELKIN sys log txt The details of the Belkin Router N router admin access page are as follows Now what I have already tried I have tried creating a homegroup on one PC and trying to join on the other but it doesn't show the homegroup created by other PC I have simply tried to allow file sharing by going into the properties of certain folders and allowing sharing but those folder are not displayed on the network or on the other PC Also the both PCs are not detected by each other anyway so file sharing I knew was pointless I tried to go to BELKIN router access page from the StudyRoom PC by using its LAN Address this was to see if I can access that router through this PC but that didn't work either Finally what I would like to setup is a home network with file and printer sharing between both PC's through the wired network itself without using a wireless connection Sorry for such a long post but I wanted to be thorough and give you as many details as possible Thanks in advance

A:How do I create a Wired Home Network ?

Use your Huawei router as DHCP server. Then use your Belkin as an Access Point so that it acts as a switch for your wired clients. This way all of the devices should be able to see one another on the network as long as the network profile is set to "home". As for printer, you can use homegroup to share printer but the PC has to be on and fully connected to network to work.

Hello all,

I have a little hard time grasping the speeds when it comes to mb/s kb/s etc, etc.

I know that Wireless N is faster then Wireless G (which is what I have now) and I also (think) I understand that the benefit of the "G" standard is generally only seen on one's internal network.

I currently have the Linksys/Cisco W54xxxx "G" router. It's in a seperate room from my iMac and I connect to my network wirelessly. My iMac supports "N".

I have the SBC/ATT DSL Elite plan.

My question is, is there any benefit going to a "N" router? Will I see any speed increases on my Mac which is what I use most often. My Laptop (W7) is a little older and does not support "N".

Thanks
David

A:Need 2 have hard wired conn.already have wireless in home

Wireless will work fine. Depending on the construction of the home and where you wish to place the Cat-5e (do not need to spend the extra on Cat-6) lines. Would depend on how much effort you want to go through. Wireless-n would work fine in your case. If you still want a hardwired line. Use Ethernet over Power extenders if you are unable to physically pull Cat-5e.

This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you don?t know the router's default password, you can look it up. HereYou also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using or you can use OpenDNSNote: After resetting your router, it is important to set a non-default password, and if possible, username, on the router. This will assist in eliminating the possibility of the router being hijacked again.let me know if this clears it upGringo

I generally don't have a need to network computers together. In fact if I do network in my home it will be for only one purpose and would prefer to have the network down 99.99% of the time.

I can run the lines needed to connect these two computers but wireless would be easier to get going.

I am just wondering if wireless is secure enough.

If I do connect two computers together I would want to set it up so I have a link on the desktop's where I can connect the network and disconnect it even if it requires me to hire out custom coding.

I guess what I am saying is would want the computers connected about once a week for a few minutes and then break the connection as easy as possible but also securely.

I set up a wireless network on my router some time ago It's called Balmer I can't connect to my wireless network with my Windows laptop any more However if I connect an ethernet cable to the router from that laptop it connects just fine as long as the cable is connected However it identifies the WIRED network as Balmer I change? Wired as has network do same network name wireless - I how would really like this laptop to connect to the Wired network has same name as wireless network - how do I change? wireless Balmer network so I don't have to plug in the ethernet cable I think the problem with the Windows laptop is that it seems to think Balmer is a wired network at the same time as there is an actual WIRELESS network with the same name I wonder if that is confusing the laptop somehow and keeping it from connecting wirelessly If so what do I do about it I've tried deleting the Wired network has same name as wireless network - how do I change? existing wired network connection but it only gives me a Merge option the delete option is greyed out I should mention that my Windows laptop connects wireless to Balmer just fine as does my cell phone Clearly something is messed up in the network settings for the Windows machine alone I'd really appreciate some guidance on how to get the Windows machine connecting to Balmer wirelessly again

A:Wired network has same name as wireless network - how do I change?

When you set up your network did you happen to change the password? My network has the same name whether I connect wired or wireless. That should not be an issue. If you connect Wired, you do not have to enter a password. Disconnect the Ethernet cable and click on your wireless icon, if it says connected, click on it and you should have the option to disconnect. It should show you all connections available to it. Click on your network, click connect and you should be asked for a password. Enter the password and it should connect.

Hello,

I have a comcast modem connected to a netgear wireless router (wgt624). The wireless router connects to a netgear switch (fs108) which from there goes to the pc's in the house. My wireless network works fine but I cant get a connection through the switch.

The ip address through the switch: 169.254.63.132
The ip address through the wireless router: 192.168.1.4

I know thats bad how do I fix?
 

A:Wireless network good wired network no go

Well, you isolate what the issue is. It could simply be a defective switch or cable.

Since that switch has auto-MDX, you should be able to simply plug a cable into any port on the switch to the router and connect computers to it on the other ports. It's really that simple. If that's not working, and the same cables work when connecting directly to the router, the switch is dead.

Did you try different ports on the switch? Sometimes, only one port dies, and if it's the port that the router is connected to, you won't get any connections.

Can anyone tell me how to connect to my wired network from my wireless connection?
 

Relevancy 65.36%

I have kind of a strange situation (I think) let me explain and see if someone can point me in the right direction. I currently have a wireless network up and running. I get a string wireless signal throughout most of the house.

I recently added a internet ready TV in another room. The TV has an ethernet port, and is not capable of wireless connection to my existing network.

Without running any ethernet cable all over the house, how can I get the TV connected to my existing network???

Can I add another wirless router close to the TV, run a cable from the TV to the new router, and have the two wireless routers connect??

Im currently using a lynksys WRK54,

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
 

A:Wired / wireless hybrid network

Hey, what your saying would be using the second router as a sort of repeater and then using one of the switch ports on the back to connect the TV to the router.
In this case, you could just use a wireless adapter. If the TV has USB, I believe you can use that, if not. there are USB to Ethernet adapters that you can use to connect the adapter to your TV.
This would also cost a fraction of the price, since the only routers that I know of that can work as repeaters are DD-WRTs with the firmware upgrade.

This was my first attempt at helping someone out, so I hope I was at least some help lol.

as said in my last post i am very new to networking, so i dont want to fool around with router settings unless i know what im doing. i have a brand new wireless router by d-link DGL-4500. when i connected it up to my gigabit switch [my network is like this] motorola surfboard cable modem SB5100 d-link EBR-2310 wired router and 2 linksys SD2008 gigabit switches] when i connected up the wireless router i got this error message on the tiny screen

"The addressing of the internet side learnt thru DHCP conflicts with the addressing selected for the LAN side''

cound someone tell me "in plain english" what this means and how i can fix it so my wired and wireless connections can get along?
 

A:wired / wireless network conflict

It sounds like you are cascading two D-Link routers--a LAN port of the first connected to the WAN port of the second (a switch between makes no difference). They both default to using LAN addresses 192.168.0.x. The second router will then get a 192.168.0.x address for its WAN side. Hence the error message.

You can change one of the routers to use a different LAN scheme, say, 192.168.3.x.

If you would prefer that everything connected to the second router be on the same LAN as you have now use the following recipe.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

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

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

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

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

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

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

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

Of course, even simpler, is to just replace the wired router by the wireless and keep it for spare.

I want to add a wireless network in a way that will not allow wireless users to access my wired network. My thought is to put a hub or switch behind the cable modem then connect both routers to the hub. Each router would pull an IP from my ISP and this should totally isolate them. Does anyone see a problem with doing it this way? Would it be effectively the same if I plugged the wireless router into the main router but used a different IP range and subnet? Both routers need to be dhcp.

Thanks!

A:Wired and Wireless Network Problems

Ok, I've seen this before with the DNS showing a valid DNS IP but also a default gateway of 192.168.0.1 which usually indicates there is another router or a modem/router and then your access point.

Can you confirm if this is true or not?

If there is only one router then you need to define 2 DNS IP addresses in your routers set up page, as it appears now you seem to have one DNS server typed into your IPv4 properties?

A:Mixed Wired\Wireless network help

Setup is always confusing to all of us the first time...
But perhaps you have not given us enough information. Which of those two devices (Linksys or Motorola) has the wireless emitter? I assume that is the Motorola.
But if you are connecting the Linksys to the Motorla, it must have the Wireless emitter to make things work properly... and so your setup is not right on the LinkSys (assuming it also has wireless)
Tell us a bit more about how they are in the chain.
Both computers and the laptop ideally should be working off the same router. I assume the Linkysy has four wired ports and a Wireless emitter. If not, tell us what you have, and the order in which they are placed.
Is one (perhaps the Motorola) connected to your cable or DSL provider?

We have a working LAN set up in our business and just set up a wireless network in another office. (Same building, less than 200 foot away) Both networks are able to share the internet. The 5 PC's on our LAN work okay and can share files & printers. The 4 PC's on the wireless network also work fine.
Our DSL runs into a SMC Barricade Router that we have used for years on our LAN. We added a Belkin Wireless Access Point that we plugged into the router for the other office. Problem is that the PC's on the LAN won't see the PC's on the wireless, and vise versa, yet everyone has internet access. Hope all this makes sense.

Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

What network devices do you have at the moment? If you happen to have a wireless router, then all you have to do is Read The Friendly Manual.

If you currently have only wired devices, then you need to buy a wireless access point and hook it up to your current network.

You can also get away with a wireless router.

A:I would like to add a wireless connection to my wired network...Help if possible!

Yes.

Windows XP comes with a bridging feature meaning you can "bridge" two network connections.

So you set up an ad hoc wireless network on one of your desktops and bridge the wireless connection with the wired one. Then you can join the ad hoc network with the laptop and you will efectively be a part of the wired network too.

A tutorial here: http://www.homenethelp.com/web/howto/windows-xp-bridge-setup.asp

PS
A cheap access point would still be a much better solution..

I want to run the wired connection for remote accessto the computer through VPN using the Routing and Remote access Service.

I'm running Windows XP Pro MCE 2005.

I can connect to the VPN fine but have no internet access after I connect. I also do not Internet Acess before connecting to the VPN. Is this because of the two adapters running with sepperate addresses.

Can I configure this somehow to allow me to use both. I would like to have the incoming connections on the Wired adapter (111.111.111.111) and internet access usingthe wireless adapter.

All other machines in the house are wireless and can get full internet access no problem. However, I cannot get them networked to be able to see each other and share files, and I would like to share the printer as well. The other devices are running XP.

Any help or direction you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Just a little over a month ago we networked 3 computers using an Intelinet Wireless Router, which is also an AP. At the time we had no intention of using a laptop. However, my husband just got a good deal on a Dell C600 wireless. It is on the way from Texas. I believe there is a way to network this laptop with our existing wired network. Can someone tell me what is involved in doing this? A friend helped us configure the router and we are very new with this, so if you could keep it just as simple as possible I would appreciate it. Thanks.

This has all been working fine for me and the missus, but now that we've just unexpectedly received some tenants who also require Internet access, I wish to get them isolated from our public resources as quick as I can, and have just ordered a couple of cheapo wired routers (BELKIN F5D5231) so I can try to set up 2 different sub-nets.

The intention is to have the ADSL router output connected to the inputs of both the 2 wired routers only, and for the new routers to provide 2 separated subnets, one for us with our shared public resources, and one for the tenants which I can independently manage for bandwidth throttling etc.

Hopefully I should be able to sort out the multiple gateway and DHCP side of things, but I know I'm way out of my depth regarding the sub-net division addressing and masks etc, so has anybody been down a similar road already who can offer me any advice please?


The gateway IP's would all need to be different, one gateway for each subnet. The Belkin routers by default will have the gateways at > 192.168.2.1 so you can most likely leave one of those default and change the other to something like 192.168.3.1. Where the first router most likely is using 192.168.0.1 or 1.1. Notice how changing the third octet creates a new subnet.

Just leave DCHP enabled for each router, on the second router you will need to change the DHCP range to fit into the proper subnet so you can leave the first router and one of the Belkin router's at default, then on the third router change the DHCP range to use .3 as the third octet so the new range might be set as 192.168.3.2 to 192.168.3.255 which would give you 254 usable IP's. Then just plug the routers into each others LAN ports, LAN to LAN.

I have recently sorted out the wireless connection of a child's laptop to a wireless printer. It works perfectly. Howver, the parent's, wired, desktop computer does not now print. No changes were made to the desktop , which was working fine before this.. I am not at the location now but are there any ideas why this should suddenly occur. Both computers are running XP.
 

A:Wireless printer not printing from wired computer after connection by wireless lapto

Wireless printers can be connected both by USB and wireless simultaneously. However, I have come across many that say they should but don't do so easily. Sometimes they have to be setup wireless first then USB and others vice versa..
In my opinion, it is probably the best option to add the printer to the desktop through the network. Then there should be no problems with setup. Hope that helps..

Hey everyone this is my first post on the techguy forums... I work for a small business and we have a network containing 6 locations within about 75 yards of each other and within 3 buildings. I didn't do any of the networking except hooking up 1 vista computer ot the current network. I just got dragged into the equation because it's what I'm in school for. Right now there is 2 vista OS and 4 XP OS I believe. I have the network all hooked up, but I can't seem to transfer any files between computers... The two computers I am trying to transfer is XP and a Vista. The error message comes up as

"Cannot copy (whatever the file name is): Access Denied
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

This is where I want to start on this problem. Thanks all!

A:Connect all-in-one wired printer to wireless network

this can be done - - WITH CARE.

First issue is to understand what your LAN looks like and what the DHCP range setting is;

get a command prompt (start->run->cmd)
enter IPCONFIG /ALL
the Gateway address will be that of your router; eg 192.168.x.y
assuming you've not changed the default settings,
the X will be different for the make of your router, but typically it is 0 or 1.
the y is almost always 1, but I've seen a few at 254.

To get your A-I-O on that network (and to keep it there), you need to make sure that
the address of the printer [ the y number ]
is not within the router's DHCP range.
Again with bold assumptions, if the router is at 192.168.0.1, then the DHCP range must be from 2 to xyz. I've also seen it from 100-150, so we need to access the router configuration using your browser.

please follow-up with the make and model number of your router so I can tailor the instructions for you ....

I have a high speed cable ISP. My home is wired with cat 5 cable operating from a wired modem. I would like to put a computer in a place that isn't wired, but I would like to keep the wired connections operating. Does anybody know if you can add a wireless router to an existing wired system and how to accomplish this?
 

A:Adding Wireless to an existing wired network

You can do this 3 ways. 1) Buy a WAP and hook it up to the existing router at any point it can even use your prexisting cat 5 wiring as a piggy back if you want it in another room closrt to your wireless PC/laptop/or periphrial you want wireless. This effectively gives you a wireless beacon on your wired network. 2) The other way you can do it is buy a wireless router and replace your wired router. 3) You can buy a wireless router and disable all router functions such as DHCP and whatnot and hook it up to your existing lan cabling using one of the internal 1-4 ports not the WAN port.

We recently moved computers out of our home office and now have a cable modem and network printer in a location without a computer.

Do we have to have an ethernet switch connected to both the modem and printer?
Can we place a wireless router in another location in our home for wireless access?
Do we have to have a computer connected to the modem/printer router for our network to remain connected to the internet and printer?

 

A:Cable modem in wired/wireless network

The modem has to be connected to the router (don't use a switch). They can be as far apart as you want, but there still needs to be a physical network cable connecting the two.

A computer is not connected directly to the modem if you're using a router. The modem is connected to the router, and the computers connect through the router.

How to connect your printer depends on what type of connection the printer uses. Does it support networking directly? Or does it need to connect to a computer via USB and then shared to other computers? If it can't be connected directly to the network, then yes, it needs to be connected to a computer which remains on so other computers can access it.

A:Need reliable wireless option for wired network

It sounds like all you want is to add a wireless access point ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

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

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

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

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

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

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

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

I have the following setup:

Actiontec Q1000 modem from Qwest setup as wireless access point
D-Link DIR-615 router setup as a wireless access point without the DHCP server and plugged in directly to the Q1000

I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5864 with an Intel 3945ABG wifi card with the latest drivers from Intel. When I'm connected wirelessly to the Q1000 I can't see any of the other wired devices but can see other wireless devices. If I connect wired to the Q1000 I can see all devices. However, if I connect to the DIR-615 wirelessly, I can see everything fine as well. I'm even getting the same DHCP lease from both wireless access points.

I have network discovery on, password protected file sharing off, firewall off and unneeded network services turned off (IPv6, etc).

When I can't see the wired devices this includes ping, http, ssh and samba.

A:Wireless/Wired problems with internal network

Dual router set ups aren't recommended unless you like inconsistant networks that are plagued with problems.

The way you have this set up now will only cause you problems. Go with a standard modem, not a combo unit, then use your same router and turn back on all networking services including IPv6.

The Argument against Disabling IPv6
It is unfortunate that some organizations disable IPv6 on their computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, where it is installed and enabled by default. Many disable IPv6-based on the assumption that they are not running any applications or services that use it. Others might disable it because of a misperception that having both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled effectively doubles their DNS and Web traffic. This is not true.
From Microsoft's perspective, IPv6 is a mandatory part of the Windows operating system and it is enabled and included in standard Windows service and application testing during the operating system development process. Because Windows was designed specifically with IPv6 present, Microsoft does not perform any testing to determine the effects of disabling IPv6. If IPv6 is disabled on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or later versions, some components will not function. Moreover, applications that you might not think are using IPv6—such as Remote Assistance, HomeGroup, DirectAccess, and Windows Mail—could be.
Therefore, Microsoft recommends that you leave IPv6 enabled, even if you do not have an IPv6-enabled network, either native or tunneled. By leaving IPv6 enabled, you do not disable IPv6-only applications and services (for example, HomeGroup in Windows 7 and DirectAccess in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are IPv6-only) and your hosts can take advantage of IPv6-enhanced connectivity.
