    1st go to command prompt and see if you have any connectivity type: ipconfig /all 2nd at command prompt ping both addresses you listed type: ping (example) 3rd try typing: tracert The tracert will tell you where you are dropping you signal or rather you packets. If all else fails type: ipconfig /release Next try ipconfig /renew That will reconnect your connection.

    ip address for lot of network router is from the manufacturer. IT or the network administrator can change the ip address. Printer and computer is have two ways of assigning ip addresses by manually input the ip address or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol ( DHCP ) give us the exact detail to you are trying to connect so we can help you.

    can you please give me the make and model numbers for your routers. Also a basic overview of your network. I may be able to walk you through the setup.

    The IP address is not configured correctly.

    The IP address first number 0 is reserved and so is the last number 255. You can use any number in between but not 0 or 255.

    For your network users to be on the same Class C - LAN network and to communicate with each other, the first three group of numbers must be the same, only the last group of numbers are different and each PC must have a different number.

Type: tracert
This will show you where you are losing your connection

Next type: ipconfig /release

Next type: ipconfig/renew

That will re-establish a connection.

How do I turn my router into a wifi client?

most routers can\'t do wireless uplink and I find wireless uplink to, frankly, be poor anyway. you always here about "a copy of a copy not being as sharp as the original." (multiplicity) well its true with wireless as well.

you can however hardline that second router and have both routers broadcast the same network so that its like having one big network that is always fast all the way through.

(if you can find an acceptable way to run that wire)

here is what I did:

1)connect to your main router and check your IP ( or something probably)

2)turn off your wireless and hardwire to your second router

3)set up the second router with the same SSID and password as the main router (important that its exactly the same)

3)on the main page where it shows your routers IP (the one you probably used to login to the router) change it to an unused IP that is easy to remember. (My main router is, my second is and my third is

***when you save changes the page won\'t reload because you need to reconnect to the new IP you just made***

4)now turn off the DHCP and save settings

OK... now its a wireless access point waiting to be attached to a router.

5)plug the internet wire into 1,2,3 or 4 but never plug anything into the uplink or internet port on the second router, that port is now unused.

You now have a network with two broadcast points that don\'t have any diminished speed or packet loss associated with wireless uplink.

How to connect the network cable

you will have 8 ethernet ports in this switch... One port is for input all the other ports are for output...
If you dont have any dedicated uplink port, then any port can be used as an uplink port and other ports becomes downlink port...
The Lan slot of router should be connected to the uplink port in switch.... you can connect upto 7 computers in this switch(in downlink ports)...

I'm having problems with my Linksys ezxs55w switcher. The plugs are not lined up with the correct lights. For example, I plug the uplink into the uplink plug, but it shows up as number 5. Same with other...

You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).

You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.

Tutorials On How to configure a D-Link DES-1008D Ethernet Swich

There really isn't much to setting up an ethernet switch hub. Plug a network cable into your router LAN connection and into port 1 or uplink port of your switch. All other computers will attach to ports 2 to 8. If you have an Uplink port and port 1, they usually can only be used singlely. That is to say use either the Uplink or port 1 Using both disables the switch hub.

Didn't recognize uplink

Not really, you just have a minor misconception. The network feed is not suppose to plug into the uplink. The uplink is for connecting 2 switches together so they act as if they were one switch.
