I would be searching the Microsoft Knowledge Base for this answer. But 1st, I would look on the Motorola website for the answer.
NOTE: If the Router is physically connected to the Server (PC), via an Ethernet cable and you want to set it up, then
1. Check the manual for the IP No. of the Router (i,e., 10.1.1.1) and then type into your Browsers navigation field (http://).
1. SearchMotorola's website for the IP No. for the Router model : 1.1 Navigate to http://www.motorola.com 1.2 Select where you want to go, for Consumers OR for Business 1.3 ClickSupport. 1.4 Click the Get Product Manuals link, from the Business Support section. 1.5 Type the Product description into the Search field. Press <Go>. 1.6 Download the product Manual and open it. 1.7 Find the area in the Manual where it tells you the IP No. of the Modem (to access the Modems Settings).
2. Then type it into your Browsers navigation field (http://).
This connects you to the Setup / Installation menu of the Modem Router itself and enables you to configure it's settings. Generally, you are able to access help from within this area.
Your wireless router should reach a max of 300 feet. Obviously, there is minimum distance as you are finding out.
You may want to try another wireless router in place of the one you are using.
You can put another device in the attic, but who is to say you will have any better success.
Things for you to consider: Wireless runs at 10, wire runs at 100 or 1000. Wire is secure, not subject to hacking.
If you put a wireless router in the attic, you will still have to run a wire from that device to your www connection.
I hope I have helped you with your problem. Post concerns or comments to this question if required
Hooking up a router is often more that just hooking up cables. Some internet service providers ISP's (phone/cable/internet companies) have requirements to be configured into the router to allow for communication with their networks. Unless you are sure you understand the ISP's requirements perhaps you could provide a link to the ISP's support website or his name. Confirming the manufacturer and model of the router would be good too just in case the one in the heading of this message in incorrect. If you provide the required information in a comment to this message I will attempt to provide steps to hook up your router.
Generally starting with either a cable or a phone wire out of a phone jack a connection is made to a modem (often supplied by the ISP) the modem is generally connected with an ethernet cable to the wan side of a router and the router is connected from one of 4 lan ports with an ethernet cable to a computer's network adapter. There are variations on this cabling that substitute USB cables or Wireless communications.
well...first problem is you're going to have big network problems with both sites on the same network/subnet. Based on what you typed above, you will not be able to route packets between the offices since the router won't know which way to go...they must be different networks/subnets...e.g. 10.10.11.0
You have quite a question there...I think you need to have a consultant talk with you over the phone at the minimum. If you can't find one locally you're welcome to work with us.
