    I should have mentioned that I have all pc NIC`s set to auto-negotiate. No help. The router interfaces still drop connection.

I have the same router model. After 3 years of use , all 4 ports wont auto-negotiate anymore..SMC customoer care no longer supports old models and u must pay for advice.
You can manualy set the speed ( its a temporary fix). Go into network settings ,properties of your network card . go into configure ( the network card). Select Advance tab, choose Link Speed Duplex Mode , itll give a list of Speed settings, by default its in AutoNegotiate. Work your way down the speed setting list until the defunct router is happy with the manual speed setting selected. There must be a chip inside the router that selects the speed , it probably burns out after awhile, who knows , I tried re-installing firmare of all versions , no go. Ill just buy a different brand router next time

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.2.1 The Default password is smcadmin. Password is case sensitive. Click on Wireless and then select Security. You can now change the security settings of your router. You can also refer to the manual below.

Wireless set-up


No, there shouldn't be any other problems associated with it. What kind of computer are you trying to connect? How old is the operating system not to have an integrated 10/100 mbps ethernet port on the motherboard?

I need to connect a real router with more ports to it 4-2 pcs


Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.

Note: no need for any CDs to "install" anything.
