You would need to look in the settings to see if it has bridge mode. A possible option for you. Get two wireless routers. Have one in the house where it is now. Run an ethernet cable from it into the shop (Max lenth should not exceed 300ft) Put the other router in the shop. Hook the ethernet from an Ethernet port on the router in the house to the WAN/Uplink port on the second router. Make sure both routers have DHCP enabled and they are on different subnets. So house network could be (Ex: 192.168.0.0) network and Shop (192.168.1.0) network. These will route correctly and use the same internet connection. If you need further directions just ask.

SOURCE: Setting Up the Netgear WGT624 as a bridge

Just disable the DHCP function of the Netgear router. Connect them from LAN port of 2wire to LAN port of Netgear.

There should be a reset button on the back or side of the unit.

Using a paperclip, hold that button down for at least 30 seconds, which will reset it to the factory defaults.

Should do the trick!

What is the standard of the router that you're using? The signal might be interferring or the location of your shop is too far from the router. Especially if the distance between is an open area. You might need a range extender for this.

Instead of removing the antenna from the router you can buy a cheap working second hand router in market (better buy a second hand belkin router, because belkin provides free lifetime phone support also free lifetime hardware support for certain routers whose model numbers starts with F5D or F6D....Dont buy any belkin routers with model number that starts with F7D)

Now configure the second router as an ACCESS POINT (you can call 18002235546 to get help to change to an access point)
run a long ethernet cable from dlink router to the second router (belkin)... you can place the belkin router anywhere where the cable can reach...
The belkin router will broadcast the signal and you will get better signal strength...

Use the internal antenna, not the stick antenna, and point it directly at where your home router is. Set your PC to the hardcoded IP address 192.168.1.5, and browse to 192.168.1.1. Configure the 1650 into Bridge mode. (At this point, you may need to rebrowse to 192.168.1.2.) In the Wireless section, set it to look for the name (SSID) of your home router, and provide it with any WEP or WPA password needed to connect to your home router. In the TCP section, set it to accept an IP address from your home router via DHCP. Reboot the unit and set your PC to accept IP addresses from DHCP. You should receive an address from your home router and be able to use your home network.
The cable from the 1650 can attach to only one device, obviously. To get your other devices online, you will have to buy an (inexpensive) 10/100 ethernet switch and attach all the cables (including the one to the 1650) through it. That will serve all your devices.

I need 2Wire 1800HW without router


The best solution is to use it anyway. If your DSL supplier gave you the info to set up the modem, then the router should work. If you can get to the unit with your computer to set the modem up, the router will allow you to attach more computers.

Tring to bridge my 2wire


Why do you need to bridge?

Can't you use both devices off the one router?

usually to bridge you would need, effectively , 2 extra access points to set as the bridges, they then connect to the other routers, allowing communication between the 2.

I do know 2wire is slightly different but you would still need something to act as a bridge on the netgear end.

I still don't understand why you need both routers running. Connect both your computers to the same router which has the internet connection.

Hope this helps

Can a 1800HG gateway in my garage/workshop link *wirelessly* to my 2wire 2700 HG-B wifi AP internet in the house?


try going onto http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J30&THISPAGE=J29&NEXTPAGE=J30 on the computer connected to the 1800hg and set the router onto bridge mode (deselect enable routing). You might be able to set the two routers to connect then from here: http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J30&NEXTPAGE=J09 or somewhere else in the MDC, not sure if it will work as I haven't tried it, but I hope it helps.
