Using network switch as a router

I've had to replace my linksys router with something immediately available to me, which is the Netgear fs-524. How do I set up this network switch to be used as a plain old router. So far I've plugged the dsl modem into the #1 port on the network switch, then plugged the 3 computers into the 2, 3, and 4 ports. What am I doing wrong here?

In order to use a switch as a router it must support layer 3(I.E. routing). It appears the switch you have is just a layer 2 device that can not "route" calls. Most of these switches(hub if you will) just switch traffic from one port to another, they can not change the IP or NAT traffic etc..

I have an emachine and installed airlink 101 ,,keeps kicking me off line..what do i do? i am online for 5 minutes then it kicks me off IE. says i am still connected.. HELP!! thanks


The following wireless access points/routers have been tested for use with the SoundBridge and SoundBridge Radio. While Roku is unable to provide testing results for all available wireless access point and routers, the vast majority will work fine with your SoundBridge product. We encourage you to try using your SoundBridge with your existing wireless equipment, regardless of published result before replacing your current hardware.
The current SoundBridge models, M1001 (connections on the back) and SoundBridge Radio R1000, use different wireless hardware than the older M1000, M500 and M2000 models (connections under the endcaps). This newer hardware has proven considerably more reliable than the older wireless hardware and should work out-of-the-box with virtually any 802.11b-compatible wireless equipment you may have. Compatibility of the older hardware has been improved over time and we recommend that you upgrade your SoundBridge's software to the latest version as soon as possible, particularly if your SoundBridge was delivered with software older than version 2.3.44. Upgrading older software may require using a wired ethernet connection or even taking your SoundBridge to a neighbors house or your office to sucessfully perform the upgrade.
To check your software version and perform an upgrade, use your SoundBridge remote control to navigate to the menu Change Library or Configuration -> System Configuration -> Software Version and Updates and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you still experience Wi-Fi connection problems, check the following items:
  • Make sure your access point/router is configured to allow 802.11b devices to connect. This may be phrased as "Mixed mode" or "802.11b +802.11g".
  • If you have wireless security enabled, make sure it is a supported protocol, and make sure you are using the "Hex" key. See your SoundBridge manual for more information.
If, after checking these items, you still cannot get your SoundBridge to connect to your wireless network, we encourage you to contact support or visit our Roku Community Forums where other customers and Roku employees will attempt to help you.
Bold = recommended by Roku for use with the latest version of SoundBridge software.
Red = poor performance or incompatible with SoundBridge
* = customer tested - your results may differ.

Laptop Can't Find New Cisco Linksys EA4500 N900 Router In Setup


Try this, your IPS Virgin, is a modem? remove AC from the ISP modem and remove battery(If it has one), remove AC power from the Linksys. Insert battery and plug in the virgin ISP modem, allow it to run the self test, may take a few mins. Plug in the Linksys, ( Is it secured with a SSID and security code?), wait for self test. turn on your computer boot normally. If that fails try this procedure: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/windowsnetworkin1/ht/renewipaddrwxp.htm

Do network switchs allow multiple online use.. i have a netgear gs605 5 port giga switch ...will it rout with games and pc


Switches will not allow multiple computers to talk to each other for games without the combined use of a router UNLESS you assign each a static IP address and identical subnet masks. You won't be able to use multiple computers no the internet unless you get a router. So....you should get a router. There are great Linksys ones for $50 or less that also have wireless builtin, I would recommend getting on of those.

Netgear Wireless Router won't work with my Linksys wired router.


As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

For Serge : Over here one more question arise that why would I need router,when every thing available in DSL modem like Wireless connectivity,router and main feature is modem,so I can skip the linksys...


Depending on the make and model of your modem that you are referring to will determine if it has routing capabilities as well as wireless etc.

If so then getting another router that has wireless and other options is a bit pointless unless you are suffering from problems or you want to get it to replace it.

I did this myself ( replaced an old router that I got from my internet service provider ) due to the one they supplied being rubbish hence why I got / replaced there router with a netgear / or linksys one ( possibly draytek )

If the modem you refer to does the routing , wireless etc then yes you can get a switch ( however many ports you want ) and connect the router / modem to the internet and have one of the network ports ( the LAN one not the WAN one ) conencted to the switch and then connect all your other devices via the switch with network cables cat 5e or cat 6 ( cat 5e will suffice ) as there is no real need for cat 6 network cables ).

Am guessing the network cables will be UTP category.

If you post back with make and model of your modem - you or anyone else on here should be able to find out if it has the capabilities you mention - which I am guessing is correct otherwise you wouldnt of mentioned it.

The only other reason for maybe swapping the current modem for a linksys or other make of router would be because you wanted a faster wireless connection and if your current modem only supports wireless G and you wanted N then you would either get a new router as you suggested or just get a Pre N wireless access point and disable the wireless on your current modem / router and just use the wireless access point for wireless.

Problem regarding firewell


If it is a brand new unit, the default confiration should work for most Cable and DSL providers. If you use DSL and need to setup a PPPoE login and password, you just need to point your browser to http://1292.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 this would all depend on the make and model of your router.

You can also reference the manufactorer's support page to find the owners manual and resetting and confiruation help. The owners manual will also discuss the firewall, port forwarding, universal plug and play (UPnP), and more.

Linksys: http://www.linksys.com/
D-Link: http://www.dlink.com/
Netgear: http://www.netgear.com/
Belkin: http://www.belkin.com/
Cisco: http://www.cisco.com/

For a D-Link AirPlus DI-524, look at the bottom of your router and locate the revision. Then visit http://support.dlink.com/downloads/ and select DI then 524 and choose the revision. That website will show pictures and show you where to find the revision. From there you can download the manual.

With the question being vague, all you need to set it up is a cable or dsl modem with an ethernet cable running to the WAN port of the router. From there, you need another ethernet cable running to another computer OR if it wireless, connect to the wireless SSID (network name). You may need to configure the router for the SSID.

Hope this helps!

Yes, but you'll need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. You could buy a hub or a switch. They are easier to configure and cheaper.

Di-524 setup


Reset the DI-524 to its factory default settings and restore the other devices on your network to their default settings. You may do this by pressing the Reset button on the back of the unit. You will lose the current configuration settings. Also be sure to unplug the modem the plug it back in afterwards, a reboot of all devices on network maybe good idea also.
