Your better bet is a wireless access point. It plugs into your router and can be configured to be transparent to the network so that any IP address you get for your wireless device comes from the original router (better for networking).

At the blinkingly fast speeds of your Wireless internet, "N" is a waste. Get the "G". Here's a link to the product I would use...it runs about $50. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116

Dsl modem = to 3 linksys wrt110 routers for wi-fi ?


What you are trying to do is a rather big job. Hire a company to connect the equipment properly. The headaches you save will be your own. If you install it, you will have to fix it everytime it goes out if you contract someone to install it and you buy a support contract when they install it, THEY get to come fix it and the headache is theirs, not yours. And NEVER install that type of router in an attic, they will overheat and fail very quickly.

Wireless g router trouble no conectivity


You have to enable DHCP in your wi fi router.
For that connect your wi fi router to youe computer with ethernet cable.
Then access it with following link
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then Enable DHCP.
Then save settings and exit router.
Also check your wi fi network adapter property Check TCP /IP settings enable ip get automatically.
Then it works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Cannot get ipod touch to connect to wireless network


Many Wi-Fi issues can be resolved by doing the following:
Basic troubleshooting
  • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and then on again.
  • Verify that you are in range of your Wi-Fi router or base station.
  • Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and Cable/DSL modem are connected to power and turned on.
  • Check whether other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet.

BEFSR81 Server and BOOTP Packet Vulnerability


A flaw in the built-in DHCP server causes the routers to send BOOTP reply packets that contain sensitive information about traffic running through the devices as well as other random information about the router's configuration. New firmware to fix this issue is now available! See information on the Linksys site for upgrading to the new firmware.
