I am getting a house alarm installed and they said I need a hard wired router. Right now I have a parkervision wireless one. Does parkervision make hard wired routers and if so how do I get one? Also, if I get one does that mean I have to hook my lap top up to it when I use the comper?

Re: My new alarm system / wireless router
What type of Alarm system? If that pakervision has network ports on the back there is no reason they couldn't run a cable to it and setup the security for you. I've never heard an alarm company tell a consumer "No you can't have wireless in your house" I'd need to know the model # of that parkervision because this doesn't make sense to me. If that parkervision doesn't have any network ports on it... yea go out and buy a wireless router that has ports on it.

You won't get internet connection that way because there is no connection between the first parkervision and the 2nd one. Best way is use only one parkervision router. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc and 2nd lan port connect to 2nd pc in other room.
2nd way is, use only one parkervision. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc, setup wireless SSID and connect your 2nd pc to this router for internet wirelessly. Assuming your 2nd pc has wireless capability.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
You can enter the routers setup pages by entering the default IPaddress
into your browser (192.168.150.1). The default passwordis
1234. You must get into setup and insure the the wirelessradio is
enabled before any of your clients can attach to the router.
type of wireless devices are you trying to attach to therouter?
If one is a notebook PC is the router visible as anavailable network?
You do not need to have a disk for the router. The router has firmware built into the router. Make sure you have your lan into the 1 port and type in your browser 192.168.150.1 and it should take you to a screen to log in. The default is 1234 for the user and password.
You should be able to use the wizard inside of the router after you log in. Hope this helps!
Reset Button The WR1500 Wireless Router reset button is built into the rear panel. Use this button to restore the factory default password to 1234; IP address to 192.168.1.1, subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and DHCP sever enabled with a pool of 8 IP addresses starting at 192.168.1.33.
it should, well to make sure that it isn't there's an LED indicator on your router that say's wireless or WLAN, since you've unchecked the feature on the router that say's Enable WLAN it should only work as a wired router and would not transmit or broacast any signal.
hope this answers your question regarding the router's wireless trasnmission.
First you need to check what is the standard of your wireless adapter that is installed on your computer(to check this well you need to grab the manual or check the specification of the computer or adapter) if it's wireless b 802.11b the maximum speed that you'll be getting is 11Mbps regardless if your router supports N standard 802.11n which can get you through a maximum of 230 to 280Mbps tops.
Second, check the wireless settings of your router make sure that the wireless mode is set to auto or mixed.
