Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
As I buy a new router from this model NETGEAR WGR614 .As i have a sify broadband connection as it require to dial the username and password from the PC .So it is very diffiucult and unconvinnent to keep one of my pc ON every time to dial the username and password so to keep available the internet connection to every computer . So can this router solve my trouble by dialling the username and password itself.
If you have a dialup internet connection the router can not directly help you, because the device that you are using for dialup (your PC) needs to first dial up your ISP using the telephone and then once connected it will use PPP to setup the IP Connection, at that point your within the PPP stack it will send your Password and Username. When that is all done you have connectivity. The router assumes that your connection by nature is either DHCP or PPPoE, not PPP or SLIP as with a dial up connection
What you need is a device that has dialup capibilities, and an internal PPP stack to allow for connectivity to the ISP while allowing for a connition to the router. This can be done by connecting one of your PCs (with Internet sharing enabled) to the internet via dialup and using a second ethernet connection to your router, then from the router you can connect your other PCs.
This method involves setting up two different subnets so here is a suggestion:
1) On the PC set the ethernet LAN facing connection to an IP Address of 192.168.10.100, netmask to 255.255.255.0, Gateway to 192.168.10.1 no DNS
2) On the router set the WAN IP Address to 192.168.10.1 and the DNS to the DNS provided by the ISP.
3) On the router facing the LAN (your network) set the IP Address to 192.168.1.1 and thell the router to act like a DHCP server.
This way you will be able to connect your PCs to the router and have it serve as a permanent connection to the PC which will still have to dial out but you can send a periodic ping sequence to keep the Internet connection up. and connfiguer auto-dial if the connection goes down.
I hope this helps
