Problem with routers

I have 2 routers given to me with a used computer I bought. One is a Linksys RT31P2, the other is a Netgear Next Wireless-N Router WNR834Bv2 I followed the online directions on how to hook them up to my other computer. But then I don't get Internet connection on either computer. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

You don't have to use both routers unless you absolutely want to do so. You can simplify things by using just the Netgear router.

If you want to use both then do the following.

Connect the Linksys to your incoming internet connection and set it up using these instructions. https://kb.nuvio.com/article.php?id=323

Once it's configured, connect one of your pc's to the Linksys and verify you can get to the internet.

When you can get to the internet, connect your Netgear router to the Linksys using one of the ethernet ports.

Configure the Netgear as a WAP (Wireless Access Point) instead of a router.

These netgear instructions should help you understand what needs to be done and provide a diagram of the connections involved. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965

OK let's see if this helps;

First check this this:
-check to see if you are connected to your router. START -> Control Panel -> left menu 'Switch to Classic View' -> Network Connections. make sure the adapter (Wireless or LAN) isn't greyed out or has an X on it, If it is greyed out right click it and select 'Enable'. If there is an X on the icon, then check your cables or wireless connection.

If you can connect to your router, but can't access the internet try this:
- Log into your router
- Check to see if your router has an IP address.
- If it shows an IP address; you might need to register the Router's MAC address with your ISP, contact your ISP.
- If there is no IP address; check to see if the connection type is set to automatic and change it if needed and re-boot your router.

If that doesn't work please supply more info on your OS, Internet connection type (ADSL, Cable or whatever), system configuration.

    I'm just going to clarify this point a little.

    - If there is no IP address; check to see if the connection type is set
    to automatic and change it if needed and re-boot your router.

    The connection type you are looking for is the internet connection type and in most cases should be set to Automatic - DHCP.

You need to connect the Netgear to a computer with a LAN cable to configure the wireless settings.
Use another computer that has a working LAN card to configure the Netgear.

Connectivity


Hi Joe,

That just depends on how you want to connect with your laptop.
If you need wireless access, then you have to use the WRT54G, because the RT31P2 has no wireless capabilities.
If you are connected via ethernet cable, then you can simply take the WRT54G out.

If you like to read up on different scenarios, here is my favorite page.

Enjoy!
