Wireless ethernet from a wired router?

Is there such thing that I can plug into the back of my rouder (wired) to give off a wireless signal. The router I have now has 2 wired
ethernet connections coming off and I was wondering if there is such thing to plug into another ethernet outlet that gives off wireless connection.

Thanks,
Jeff S.

The item you're looking for is called a wireless access point. There are instructions on the internet for turning a wireless router into a WAP, or you can buy a WAP for about the same money as a wireless router.

I use a product from TP Link, for it's price and flexibility. It can work as a point-to-point bridge or access point, and we can screw a larger antenna onto it for added range.

You can buy a wireless access point to plug into your router. The thing is, you can buy a new router with wireless built in for about the same price. It's up to you to shop and compare.

In either case, you will need to configure the wireless, and create a WEP key to share with the wireless in the computer(s). The new wireless will come with instructions.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

I can't get online to google or anything because the laptop will not come out of the offline.


If you are on a wireless network with a router, power cycle all your equipment to get it back in sync with each other.

1. Turn off the power to your router( 1st) , your modem (2nd) and pc (3rd). in this order. Wait a few min.

2. Take out the ethernet cable from the router (until your modem reacquires a signal to the internet) and if the pc is connected to the router unplug the Ethernet cable from the back of the pc.

3. Turn on the power to your router wait for all the lights to come back up. Then turn on your modem and wait for all the lights to come back up and reacquire a signal. Once all the lights are on the modem, plug the ethernet cable back into the Internet jack of your router.

4. Turn on your laptop. After Windows loads and you get to your desktop, plug the Ethernet cable in to the back of the pc( if you connect wired) or try to connect to your wireless network.

5. Then open your browser and type in this web address:

If you don't know the password, then you need to reset the router,
Hold it down the reset button with the help of a pen point and power cycle your router. Then re-do the configuration following the manufacturer's instructions. Then you can set password for your router.satheeshd_0.jpg

My router is not obtaining an ip address through WAN port. I use my rouders WAN MAC Address to identify my rouder to my ISP provider. I can see this MAc address under Internet Connection on the rouder...


Try using the MAC address of the ethernet adapter and clone it to your router. Your ISP might be recognizing the MAC address of the LAN card of the computer.

To get the mac address of the computer go to the command prompt and type ipconfig/all.

You may also need to contact your ISP to clear arp in their end, so that they will detect that you have a router. I hope this helps!

HOW TO USE INTERNET IN MORE THAN ONE PC FROM LINKSYS WIRELESS G B


You have two ways on how you can get other computer online through this router. First, you can wired them (using an Ethernet cable) to one of the Ethernet ports on the back of the router. They are the ones labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Second is through wireless, but those computers that will connect through wireless must also have a wireless adapter to be able to pick up the signal that this router is broadcasting.

Linksys rouder suddenly stoped alowing other computers net access


I would recommend upgrading the router firmware, if you have not done this already.

Download the firmware file from the Linksys website:
http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/

Typically, the upgrade is done by pointing your web browser at the IP address of the Linksys router. Linksys should provide specific instructions at the site above.

Use Netgear WGR614 as an access point


Right, it won't work. The 614 doesn't have the software to make it into a BRIDGE or AP CLIENT. It can only be made into an Access Point, meaning it needs a wired connection INTO it.

A TP-Link http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_spe.asp?id=36 WA501G costs under $40 and gives you the ability to go from wireless to wired. It takes about 15 minutes to set up, and will plug into your DVR's ethernet port to extend your wireless network. It's programmed by setting the mode, AP, CLIENT, BRIDGE, etc. We use them in areas where we want to extend a wireless signal for distances like across parking lots, but it also will work across a room or two.

There are also wired ethernet extenders that use house wiring like the Netgear XE-102, about $80, that look like two wall transformers with ethernet jacks. You plug one into the router/switch and the other into the DVR.

Connecting Dlink DI-514 with my another 3com router (wireless)


No, the router requires an Ethernet cable be plugged into the back of it to receive its Internet signal.

As far as I'm aware there are no consumer-grade routers that will pick up a wireless signal from another router and use that as the Internet source.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were after. :-\
