    Parallel cord? You mean a crossover ethernet cable?



    Ideally, a crossover and no router/hub would be the simplest way.



    You need to give much more information.

I have a linksys ea2700 router that i am trying to use as a standalone wireless network (no internet), when i try transferring files from my computer to a storage computer the transfer rate never exceeds...


This is not the issue with particularly this router. first of all, change the security to WEP, and then create a new user account in your system. it would definitely give you the maximum possible transmission rate of data.

We transferred to a new home and a new dsl account. I've reset my netgear wgr614v5 to its default settings and reconfigured it to access but now it only works for pc's that are wired into the ports....


When you reset the router the default setting for encryption is probably off. Hopefully you had encryption on in the old home - but now the wireless computers are still trying to connect using the key/encryption.

My 2 wire is a home portal 1000 which doens't have wireless. So the easiest way to solve this is to get a wireless router and plug it into your 2 wire router (I did this) then connect the xbox 306 to that.

Trouble reconfiguring WGR614 v5 after reset


Dear Koteshst

Is it the router that's showing 'Limitted and no connectivity' or the PC trying to connect to the router? If it's the latter make sure that the router is configured to assign IP addresses via DHCP and that your WEP/WPA keys match on both sides. If it's the former check your authentication info for SBC.

Let me know.

Router down when copy files


Check in your routers settings via your browser that the file transfer speed is no higher than 54 mbps, as it may be set at 108 mbps or 125 mbps as a 'g' type router should be, but your wireless network adapters can only work at 54 mbps and are crashing the transfers.

This problem affects many router brands. The modem can be distinguished from the earlier 5100 by a 5th light labeled "Internet". The SpeedStream 5100b's default configuration is "PPPoE on the Modem" ? matching a built-in PPPoE client convenience feature that sends login ID and password to SBC. To Work Around These Issues, Configure the Modem for Bridged Mode Note: In Bridge Mode you cannot to connect to the modem's configuration menu, except by resetting it as described below. 1.

Log in to the router by typing 192.168.0.1 in your browser. 18. When prompted, using lowercase letters, type admin for the user name, and password for the password. Some older routers use 1234 for the default password. If you forgot your router password see http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=102081&prdid=252188 19. Use the Setup Wizard to connect to the Internet. To Reset the Modem To Enable Access to the Configuration Screen 1. Disconnect the computer from the modem. 2. Power off the modem. 3.
