Question about Computers & Internet
I have a desktop PC with a DSL broadband connection. Broadband modem is a standard modem (without Wi-Fi) having only 1 Ethernet port. I wish to access Wi-Fi internet in my home. I have also a spare DSL modem -with Wi-Fi (not router) having 4 Ethernet port. My Wi-Fi modem can also be configured directly to solve this purpose. So, I tried to configure it myself. DSL link on Wi-Fi modem shows stable but I could not access internet. I talked to Internet people they told, "MAC is need to be configured" which confuses me. Is it possible to connect my both modems and PC together with an 'Ethernet splitter' to access internet while using my standard modem as primary and Wi-Fi modem as secondary, just to broadcast Wi-Fi signals. Please guide me, is it possible to do? Thanks!
Does the non wifi modem give out DHCP addresses?
Can the wifi modem be set up to receive it's IP address from DHCP?
If the answer to both these questions is Yes then that's what to do as a first step. Make sure the wifi modem DHCP service is disabled as it must NOT give out DHCP addresses.
Connect the ethernet port of the non wifi modem to one of the LAN ports of the wifi modem and NOT the DSL/WAN port. The wifi modem is not participating in any DSL connectivity at all so it's DSL light will remain off. The non wifi modem is doing the DSL duty so it's DSL light should be correctly illuminated.
