Question about SMC Barricade SMC7401BRA (SMC7401BRA-ADSL) Bridge/Router
The barricade is workign fine for one pc but since it ahs only one port it doesnt route much. i have two different 4 port routers one with wireless and the other withought. id like to connect two computers a desktop and a laptop preferably with the wireless option. this means making either my netwave blitz base g4 wireless 4 port router model bwa611 or my lynksys network anywhere 4 port router model NRo41 connect throught the barricade model model smc 7401bra combination modem and single port router, now in use for a single computer. when i tried hooking them up mechanically and running the installation cds bothj failed to allow me to sue the connection though they both seemed to be capable of making a connection. my problem is i need to be able to control and use the connection, so i can gain access to the interent with both the desktop and laptop at the same time. my first choice is to have the wirelsss modem in the system, but if it wont wotk im ok with the linksys wired 4 port router. can anyone help me makie the connection.
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.
