It is best to say where you are so a local expert can reply. Generic reasons for this may be
- your internet link is too slow - the server at the other end is overloaded - there is some type of local login required from you - there is insufficient space on your device to cache large amounts of video data
You wouldn't use a wireless router for the second device -- you would use a wireless bridge device. Most Wireless Access Points can be configured to be wireless bridge devices or you may be able to find a dedicated wireless bridge. Unfortunately, these devices usually have just one Ethernet port. That will mean that you'll need to buy an Ethernet switch in addition to the device that you're going to be using as a wireless bridge. This will add to your cost and make it so there is no real cost savings by using the Wireless Bridge + Ethernet switch combination. If you can find a wireless bridge unit that has more than one Ethernet port, then you may be in business. Using a second wireless router will not work unless the device has the ability to be configured to be a wireless bridge. Such routers are usually more expensive than your typical router, but you might get lucky and find one at a good price. Good Luck
I am assuming you are using it as a wireless bridge to connect wired devices to your wireless network. If that is the case, then yes. You must change your key on all wireless devices (including your bridge) if you change the key to connect to the access point.
you can connect to your box via FTP via a crossover cable. If you can’t, you might want to read up on that before attempting this. Now, what we’ll need is… Ethernet cable (crossover or patch) Router Modem We’ll also assume that you have a router (wireless or not) and that your modem is connected to the ‘Internet’ or ‘WAN’ port. If you have a free port on your wireless router, you can connect your dreambox to this. Use the ethernet cable (crossover or patch, most modern routers will accept either) connect one end to your dreambox and one end to a free port on your router. You don’t need to change any settings on your router or PC. Over to the dreambox. Navigate to the networking page on your dreambox. Setup -> Expert Setup -> Communication Setup
Is the motorola currently surfing and are you trying to add the linksys to it? If so you will need to go into the motorola and set it to bridge connection under connection type found in the expert mode of the modem. Then you will add the linksys and input the username and password in the pppoe connection type. Once the info is save click on the status tab and click connect. Hope this helps
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.
