Question about 2wire Computers & Internet
Want to use in shop located away from house about 100 ft. Shop is a metal building. Current router connects outside of shop, but not inside.
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.

when u bride modem you have to go inside ur cisco if u have ur 2wire bridge u should pick up a diffrent ip than 192.168.1.254 on the default gatewat | go to ur command prompt or DOS screen |
vista type CMD on ur search on the start menu at the bottom
xp go to RUN then type CMD | should brin up black screen
type in (ipconfig) look for default gateway |
go to ur browser and type that IP address on the address bar
should take u to ur cisco interfase | then should ask ur for a username and password try variation of admin admin or (blank) admin or admin (blank) that should get u in
if u see DHCP make it PPPoE then it should ask u for username and password from ur ISP or ur primary email address from ur ISP and password | that should do the trick
*****if u cant find username and PWD go to WAN setting manual settings then PPPoE and then USRname and PWD

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.

SOURCE: I want to extend the
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...
