Ethernet will travel over 2 pairs from the basement to your space that has to be less than 100 feet away. You can run it over flat cable, but not get 100 base T, but it is still going to be as fast and quicker than a wireless bridge and regeneration.

If I understand what you're trying to do, it will acutally take 3 routers or 2 and a wireless access point. The key would be to set up one router as a wireless and the other as a bridge. That gets your ethernet signal to the back of the router. Now, you need a wirelss access point or 3rd router to make it be wireless in your space.

Most modern premisies are wired with 4-pair cable. Even if they didn't make home runs from your space to the basement, there ought to be at least 2 spare pairs in the house cable. Those 2 pairs can feed ethernet to your space where you just have to plug in a router and configure it as an access point, or let it be a wireless router for that matter with or without being a DHCP server. In my wildest dreams, I can't even think of a 5 story structore being more than 150 cable feet away, well withing the 300 feet allowed for ethernet.

Let us know what you finally do.

How to make a d-link 264 ob into a repeater I have a three story house with wireless on the ground floor and the signal is very poor at the top. I want to repeat the signal on the second floor.

Move your wireless to the second floor or add a second wireless router to your second floor. Use CAT 5 or 6 cable. Run it in a closet or cold air return. Use the special cat 5 or 6 for cold aire return use. Do not put it in a heated duct.

Cant get internet on both computers using router

When did the router stop working?

Have you tried a new cable between the router and the modem?

Since the status light is off on the router, that tells me that there is no communication between the router and modem. Is it possible that the router was reset by accident? Resetting it will put all settings to default. If it has been reset then you need to sign on to the router to setup the communication again to your modem. Typically this is done via the IP address.

I can walk you through those steps if that is the case. Try supplying a different cable though between the router and modem. Power off both of them, power on the modem and then power on the router....then try to connect to the Internet.

Connecting a DI-524 to a DI-604

This shouldn't really be any problem simply use a short "Uplink" ethernet cable to join the routers thru the uplink port, or any port really, and that way ya should be able to wifi and access the net, set ya router that connects to the net for DCHP and disable that setting in the Wifi router and ya should be good to go?

Generally for your wired machines assuming your internet connection starts at the

phone wire coming out of a jack or the
cable company's cable.

Either of those connect to a modem device

An ethernet cable from the modem device connects to either

a computer as you have not
the WAN port of the router (very seldon the LAN side)

additional computers can connect to the
LAN ports of the router (often a block of 4)

Help connecting Cable Internet through D-Link DI-514 Router

what may be happening is the wireless pc as it was; needs the dns and ip address flushing, also the pc you connected the router to as you must have conflicting ip addreses Click start run then type ipconfig /flushdns. You should ensure that the router is set to enable DHCP to assign ip addreses and make sure your'e network cards on all pc's are set to obtain ip address automaticaly in the TCP/IP properties. Restart the pcs and type in your web browser and get into your router setings and check in the DHCP section that all pc's have been given an ip address. If all fails you may need to reset the router
