Network Configuring 2 Routers

Q: Network Configuring 2 Routers

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.

Any help will be appreaciated

Hello I have an Actiontec GT R DSL modem with routing capabilities and a Linksys WRT G v wireless router Not actually going to be configuring routers help Need using wireless so it s turned off Both devices have the latest firmware Only two computers in the house both with Windows XP Pro and the two are hooked up with ethernet cables to the Linksys via LAN ports for their Internet connection The DSL modem s device IP is with subnet mask Need help configuring routers The router s IP is Both have DHCP Need help configuring routers turned on Basically what I d like to do is forward the port both UPD and TCP and in order to do this I have first tried turning off DHCP in the DSL modem and allowing DHCP on in the router and then forwarding the ports in the router settings Still doesn t work however even with the exceptions made in the firewall Second I have turned DHCP off in the router and set up static IPs in Network Connections yet the port remains unopened Do not even think about linking me to portforward com Any help would be appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:Need help configuring routers

You probably want to be looking at JohnWill's frequent "Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together" posting (included below for you convenience).

Basically using one of the routers as a router and the other as a switch. You only have DHCP enabled in one and port-forwarding in one (the router acting as a router).
JohnWill said:

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.

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

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!
Click to expand...

Suggest you use your Actiontec GT701R DSL modem as the "primary" router and the Linksys WRT54G as the "secondary" router (switch), and you could still make use of the wireless capability in the Linksys in this configuration if you so wished.

if u are referring to the web config this is no surprise. if you pull up the other router you session will have to be reautheticated over and over as you pop back and forth btw the web configs. they may even cross over (you log in and theres the config page for the other router.) this will be way off if u werent talking about connecting to the router via web config. please elaborate if you were or not

OK, I'm still kinda clueless here on configuring NAT (why it's hard for me, I have no idea lol) so I want to run this scenario with you to make sure I know what I'm talking about:

LAN addresses to be allowed out to internet: 192.168.0.17 -.0.30
IP addresses assigned by ISP: 193.168.0.17-22

ip nat pool CCNA 193.168.0.17 192.168.0.22 netmask 255.255.255.248
This line creates a pool of addresses (named CCNA) from 193.168.0.17 to 0.22?

access-list 1 permit 192.168.0.17 0.0.0.15
An access list that permits the hosts within range

ip nat inside source list 1 pool CCNA overload
allows the ip range in list 1 to be translated to public ip address?
Is this right?

I'm not used to setting NAT on Cisco routers. Last time I did that was 2 years ago and I barely remember it. So I just wanted to confirm this scenario I had on the CCNA exam with you.

The scenario was I had 6 public IP addresses and I need to configure NAT for 2 subnets, 30 hosts each. My question would be would this be the correct configuration?:

int eth0
ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.128
ip nat inside

int eth1
ip address 10.10.20.1 255.255.255.128
ip nat inside

int serial 0/0
ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.192
ip nat outside

ip nat pool no-overload 192.168.1.40 192.168.1.46 prefix 24

ip nat inside source list 7 pool no-overload

access-list 7 permit 10.10.10.0 0.0.0.31
access-list 7 permit 10.10.20.0 0.0.0.31

I'm just trying to understand this more, I know i screwed this question up.

I'm trying to set up a wireless workgroup at home and am wondering if I'm doing it right so far. Here's how I have it configured so far....maybe someone can tell me if I'm on the right track:

1. 1 DSL modem/4 port switch/wireless capable(IP 192.168.1.1)(DHCP with range from 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.100) with a hardwire from one of the ports to the Internet/Uplink port on a linksys 4 port/wireless router(IP 192.168.1.2)

2. First router on channel 1, second on channel 6

3. Both have the same SSID

4. Both are WEP enabled with the same key

That's all I can remember for now. I'm trying to have seamless crossover when moving away from one router and getting closer to the other. Also, will I need to configure anything on the routers to have File and Printer Sharing work? I have read that NetBIOS has some issues with using multiple wireless routers.
 

A:Configuring multiple wireless routers

I'd make them different SSID's. You can put both of them in the list of preferred connections. That's how I run my routers, but I use WPA here.

i ran a speed test and my results were
6.15Mb/s download
.33Mb/s upload

its not great i know, but its the best my isp has to offer for my area
but .33Mb/s upload should be more than enough for me to send a high quality voice call
i have already set QOS to make Skype a top priority, im not sure if that has any

A:configuring a wired network

If you have two (or more) devices connected to the same router they are already on the same network.

With Windows 10 then you can try to use a Homegroup or you can enable file and printer sharing. I think that enabling file and printer sharing is similar to the following (I can check later if this doesn't work) ...

Short description for Windows 7 and 8/8.1 file and printer sharing:

Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private' (or 'Home' or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Private or Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

You may want to change the Workgroup name. To check it or change it right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).

Okay, I have a small home network using a D-Link wireless router.

I have 3 boxes, 1 - WinXP, 2-WinServer2003, 3-WinServer2003

Right now they are setup and share an internet connection but that is about it.

box1 is my main PC for games and work and has a USB printer haooked to it.
box2 is my webserver
box3 will eventually be my webcrawler/email server

What I want to know is, can the 3 boxes share the 1 USB printer?
Also I would like to configure the network so all 3 boxes can access a shared network folder for passing files back and forth.

I am not a network guru by no means, it took me a while to get my current setup so any guidence is very appreciated, also the more 'dummy proof' the better.

So if anyone can tell me how to acheive this setup or point to some articles that can I would be very grateful.

A:Configuring multi-site network

Hi…

I’m uncertain if you are still working on this or if this is still a relevant thread. I guess if you don’t need the help anymore, could you mark the thread as solved?

As to your questions…..

Let’s start with the basics 1st. You will not and cannot (used loosely) break down your routers, switches, and servers in the method you described. There are “NO” written rules that prohibit you from configuring your network IP’s in anyway you want to configure them. However, there are recommendations and guidelines that you would want to try to use where possible.

At the same time, if you use a service provider for certain services, they may require your servers, printers, and so forth to be in certain range. Such as, they may want all of your servers to be in the lower IP range, reserving let’s say the 1st 20 IP’s for servers, routers, switches, and so on.

So, you can do as you wish, but save yourself some serious headaches, you should keep your “locations” at the very least all within the same IP blocks. What class you use is up to you and your company. So, by IP Blocks, I mean you should keep let’s say site #1 all on a 10.71.13.xx range. I recommend and many others that you plan your network to a “T”. I prefer to keep main routers and servers in the lower numbers such as 10.71.13.1 thru 10.71.13.20. Of course, if you have tons of servers and routers, then you will have to adjust as needed. I also prefer to keep my printers in the UPPER portion of the IP range. Then workstations then fall in between the lower and upper ranges.

There are tons of good reading materials about network design both in book stores and on the internet.

A router is a router and that is exactly what it does; routes between networks and sub networks. How you configure your setup is entirely up to you, your environment, and your geographical locations between endpoints.

If your networks are separated with “not to extreme” distances, you may wish to look into a “point-to-point” T1 setup. If they are geographically further apart where you cannot get a good price on a “point-to-point” T1, you may want to look into using a VPN connection for interconnectivity. Frame-relays are okay, but I have found that the cost of them & the performance of a frame-relay aren’t worth it. Unfortunately, one of the companies I support is required to use frame-relays & a way I am glad because I have gained a lot of experience with them over the past 5 years.

As I said before, there are way too many different scenarios to list. You didn’t really provide a lot of information on your locations either. I.e. How are geographically situated? What type of company is it? There are tons of questions to be asked and answered.

One more thing… the NO DC at the satellite sites is something that should be really considered before choosing not to do this. A few of them are….

What happens when your network connection goes down?
What type of bandwidth will I be using for applications, file storage and so forth?
Will I ever use terminal services?

Those are just a few questions to be answered. On the other hand, there are some more questions to be answered if you do decide to use DC’s at the satellites. A few of them are….

Will a server hosted application run on multiple servers?
How will I back up these servers?

Once again, just a few questions to consider for any scenario when it comes to networking.

My personal opinion is… I would prefer to have DC’s at every location.

Thanks!

A:Solved: help configuring network at office.

The easiest solution might be to change the router's LAN address to match the previous router/existing static IP address assignments already set on all the PC's and then re-setup the static IP on the one that needs to access the internet correctly(as previously set).

I assume what is happening is that the new router is handing out addresses in a different range which doesn't correspond to the addresses already set on all the PC's. I also assume you are preventing internet access on the rest of the PC's by not entering DNS or Gateway addresses?

An alternate method, and there's actually several, is to enable filtering on the router to prevent internet access, most routers have some form of access control or internet restriction options these days. In that scenario you could switch to automatic IP assignments.

I would like to confirm that the settings I have are correct for a second managed switch I am adding to my network. DHCP I have disabled, IP address I have found one on the network unused (192.168.1.xxx), subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The only thing I'm not sure about is the default gateway setting - what should this be?

A:Configuring second managed switch on network

Default gateway should be the LAN IP address of the router you use to go to the Net, IE the one connected to your modem and or LAN IP address of a Modem/Router combo box.

But if you are disabling the DHCP server in a managed switch you are basically turning that managed switch into a dumb switch just like any other. Well not like any other Dumb switch.

A:Configuring my network with the new fiber line

It sounds like what you will need to do is use the router in a "passive" mode. What i mean is simply keep your internal network as it is, but create a static route towards the new Cisco Router. The static route should probably be 0.0.0.0 with a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0. What this means is that anything destined to a destination the current router is unaware of, it passes it to the Cisco router which will then forward this onto the internet.

Does this make sense?

IIRC, D-Link for instance, specifically states to keep Windows out of the install process and to use the provided D-Link software.

I think you'll have better luck if you can get ahold of the software/drivers that came with the card.
If the CD is lost then I would go to the manufacturer's site and see what's available to D/L.

A:Configuring a wired office network

Do you have a closet or central location where you can locate all the IT equipment?

Personally, I would identify a closet/room to have house the IT equipment. Spend the money to have drops installed in the wall in the various rooms and then have all the cabling pulled back to this central closet/room and terminated into a patch panel. This would necessitate at a minimum a wall rack installed. At each location where you want a network drop installed, I would have at least two Ethernet jacks per drop.

I would use a single 48 port switch that has stacking capability. If you out grow the number of ports on the 48 port switch, you can add another switch to the 48 port you have now and have it act like one big switch.

Guest WiFi isn't a problem with a business class access point. I would look into products from Aerohive, Ubiquiti, Aruba Networks, or Meraki. These devices have a captive portal feature much like what you see in hotel settings.

As far as the account department's heavy traffic, what do you mean heavy traffic? What type of protocol/traffic are we talking about here? Your network doesn't appear to pose a large strain on any current switch. Other than isolating the accounting department for possible network usage, is there any other reason why you would want to isolate their equipment from the rest of the corporate network?

"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.

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.

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).

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.

any system can be wired to either router and the wired router will control all ip address assignments

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.

Routers the on Same Two I currently have a Netgear DG PN Wireless Modem Router that plugs into my Gaming PC and my Dad s PC through ethernet However due Two Wireless Routers on the Same Network? to firewall problems I cannot run game servers that go to the net So I thought of this Is there a way to hook up two wireless routers onto the same network Or phone line I tried hooking the netgear router and a spare Netcomm Modem up through a phone line with a double adapter on the end and a spare modem connecting the Belkin to the internet but one would connect and the other would say its connected but wouldn t go to Google Is there a way to get pass this I m guessing I might have to ring the ISP but I dunno what to say about it My second theory was that if I hook the Belkin up from the Netgear and set it up I could connect my Laptop Server up to that Wiereless didn t work however running straight from cable did but when I went to login to the Router settings it went straight to the Netgear instead of the Belkin Is there a way to make it only go to the Belkin Thanks for your help UPDATE I can connect wirelessly from my Laptop with the Belkin plugged into the Netgear but it won t connect to internet even though its saying im connected to the Belkin wirelessly nbsp

A:Network Printer (2 Routers)

"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.

I have a network that is currently set up in the following way:
Modem -> vonage Motorola router -> wireless router

Most computers are hard wired to the Motorola router. Some other ones connect via the linkseys wireless router. All computers are able to connect to the Internet.

The problem I have is that I will be setting up a home computer as a file server connected to the Motorola router. The network acts as though it is two meaning that computers on one router can't see computers on the other router. 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.

I am getting ready to set up a home network to share my internet connection between multiple computers. I have been looking at a couple different brands of routers, and was wondering if anybody had any comments about them. I have been looking at Linksys, D-Link, and Netgear brands (basically because thats all our local computer shops offer, and I don't have a ton of money). Do you have any comments or suggestions about those brands? I won't be carrying a heavy load, I don't do gaming or anything, just basic internet surfing, email etc.... Thanks for the help.
 

A:home network routers

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.

10.8.1.253 /16 - This one is used for internet.

10.8.127.252 /16 - This one is used to connect to the data centre.

I have been told that i need a third router that connects to both of these and then on to the LAN, but will that work?

I have tried to add in two default gateways but it would only use one or the other.

Also is there any other way of doing this with out buying a third router if thats what is needed?

I've read John Will's instructions for configuring 2 routers on a home network and it makes sense so far. I do have a couple of questions that maybe someone could answer for me.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

I am doing an overhaul of my home network, in particular related to safe external connections and safe sharing.

There is no conn issues or alike, I am only looking for an opinion regarding how to connect to my home network from an external computer, and tips regarding safe configuration.

As it is I have one Radmin license which should be a pretty safe way to connect but I am, currently, also able to use RDP protocol.
The obvious advantage with RDP is that I can use any W7 computer. Even my phone,

I have two Windows 2008 based servers, one WHS and one Standard. I was thinking of letting the Standard act as a Gateway and thus removing direct external access to the WHS, I assume that would increase security, but I am not sure of how to configure the Standard server securely. Or if I could use another software than Radmin and RDP to connect.

Tips? Thoughts? Questions?

A:Safest way to VPN to network? Configuring Server 2008 as Gateway...?

Hi Coram,

if you are concerned about security, the safest way of protecting your network is adding a Security Appliance like Sonicwall. You may use VPN or Remote Desktop Services (RDS), either one will be fine but again having a very secured network is beneficial. I am a big fan of Sonicwall.

Hope this helps.

Guyz I am having some real issue right now, after introducing a new Wireless Router for the conference the current network suddenly gone bad (Internet running slow, and won't work in some case - but if I disconnect/unplug the new Wireless Router everything is back in business)

Here is my network infrastructure.



The weird things is I got very good signal from New Wireless Router and able to ping most sites but having problem with browser won't loading the page. Also old network tense to lose it connectivity sometime able to use the net and some other time it won't and like I had mention before if I disconnect the new Wireless Router everything back to normal. The real question is, what did I do wrong please help me
 

A:Network trouble with multiple Routers

With that topology (wiring), I would make sure both wireless routers were
at the opposing ends of the channels; one on channel-1, the other on channel-11.

Set different SSIDs

Make sure ALL routers have the latest firmware
and ALL systems do too. It often makes a difference.

How many systems are on the downlink side of the HUB? You might find
better thruput and more reliability by using a switch.

Hey! Just noticed that the new wireless is attached to the modem-- what gives,
Don't tell me one is via rj45 and the other is USB; this doesn't work!
Move # 2 router to a lan port on router #1,
wireless#1(lan) --->wireless#2(lan) not the WAN!
make it an Access Point and disable DHCP on #2

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 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).

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!

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.

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.

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!

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?

A:Network with 2 routers, 1 server, multiple clients

You can have domain running in the home with the equipment you have posted above. I did that here myself. You need Windows client OS that supports domain. Pro series does. Server 2003 has NAT feature and can be your router using additional network card. One Card would be labeled WAN and the other would be called LAN. This can be connected to a 5/8/16/24/48-port switch or even add AP to the mix. So it would be modem to Server to external switch. Having the Server with DNS, DHCP and Active Directory active plus the NAT works great. Take some time to get it all working though. For extra SPI hardware firewall I had use one of those belkin wireless turned off wi-fi, DHCP then connected the server LAN to Belkin then back to the switch. This is optional don't have to do this just saying that's how I did it.

Or

Use a wireless router connect only server to and use external switch from the router to your other network devices. This is another way to do with on domain. Doing this way you don't need to install another Nic card in the server box.

A:Solved: Network Setup w/Multiple routers

You can either configure the Netopia 2210N into bridge mode and use the WRT54G as a standard router connected to the WAN port of the Linksys, or configure the WRT54G as a WAP.

In any case, you'll want to configure the Linksys BEFW11s4 as a WAP using the following configuration. This applies to the WRT54G as well if you decide not to bridge the Netopia.

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.
