Question about Computers & Internet

Seemlessly joining two networks

At home I use two networks since the wireless of the main network (N1) does not reach one part of the house. N1 consists of a number of devices connected wirelessly or via cable to a Linksys WAG320N modem-router which also provides internet access (IP 192.168.1.1, subnet mask 255.255.255.0). One of the N1 Ethernet ports is then connected to a Sitecom Powerline 200Mb/s adaptor. Another Powerline device is plugged in the other part of the house and connected to a Sitecom 300N wireless router (IP 192.168.2.1, subnet mask 255.255.255.0), to which another series of devices in connected (N2). N2 has internet access, I can access the N1 router (192.168.1.1) and can ping N1 devices from computers connected to N2 although N2 does not fully ''see'' N1 devices (e.g. the media player on 192.168.1.5) except the router. N1 does not seem to see N2 at all although the Powerline adapters and the N2 router seem to be on 192.168.1.11. I do not know much about networking but after some reading I suspect I have to do something about the N1 subnet mask and the N2 IP range so that the two networks become two halves of the same network. I may be wrong though and in any case I am not sure how to go about it. Can somebody help please? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The router allows me to change only the last value and that can only be set at 0, 128, 242,224, 240, etc.

    (btw, I meant "seamlessly"....)

Try changing the subnet on N1 to 255.255.254.0 or 255.255.248.0

Question: What is infrastructure mode in wireless networking? Answer: Infrastructure mode wireless networking bridges (joins) a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network. Infrastructure mode wireless also supports central connection points for WLAN clients. A wireless access point (AP) is required for infrastructure mode wireless networking. To join the WLAN, the AP and all wireless clients must be configured to use the same SSID. The AP is then cabled to the wired network to allow wireless clients access to, for example, Internet connections or printers. Additional APs can be added to the WLAN to increase the reach of the infrastructure and support any number of wireless clients. Compared to the alternative, ad-hoc wireless networks, infrastructure mode networks offer the advantage of scalability, centralized security management and improved reach. The disadvantage of infrastructure wireless networks is simply the additional cost to purchase AP hardware. Note that home wireless routers all feature a built-in AP to support infrastructure mode.

3d reach card


If there is a wireless g or b network within range you should be able to connected to it provided the wireless network is either open or you have the WEP or WPA key. By "within range" we are basically talking about the same building.

Rating: 85%, 88 votes hi,
Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
2.The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
3.Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID is used. The SSID is your network name. The default network name of the Router is Belkin N1 Wireless followed by six digits that are unique to your Router. Your network name will look something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456.
You can change this to anything you choose, or you can leave it unchanged. Keep in mind, if you decide to change your wireless network name, and there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network name needs to be different from other wireless networks that may be operating in your area. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.
4.Changing the Wireless Channel
There are a number of operating channels from which you can choose—in the United States, there are 11 and in the United Kingdom (and most of Europe), there are 13.
In a small number of other countries, there are other channel requirements. Your Router is configured to operate on the proper channels for the country in which you reside. The channel can be changed if needed. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks.
Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
5.Using the Wireless Mode Switch
This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled.
1) 802.11g only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
2) 802.11g & 802.11b
Setting the Router to this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.
3) 802.11n & 802.11g
Setting the Router to this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
4) 802.11n only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.
5) Off
This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.
Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
6. Using the Broadcast SSID Feature
Note: This advanced feature should be employed by advanced users only. For security, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. Each computer now needs to be set to connect to your specific SSID; an SSID of ANY will no longer be accepted. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change
