Wired the 2nd router into another computer ( you only need the power and an ethernet cable into the #1 port of the router )

reset and power cycle the router. then type into the address bar of your internet browser. type admin on the password field, leave the username blank.

-->if you like to setup the router as only an access point

  • on the setup page of your router, disable the DHCP server and change the LAN ip of the router to
  • go to the security tab and uncheck all the filters (don't forget to save the settings )
  • go to the wireless tab and personalize the wireless network settings
  • plug a cable into the ethernet port ( 1,2,3 or 4) of main router and plug the other end to the ethernet port on the 2nd router
  • power cycle everything and you should be good
-->if you don't want to router to act as an access point
  • just changed the ip to, save the settings
  • go to the wireless tab and personalize the wireless network settings
  • plug an ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the main router, connect the other end to the internet ( yellow ) port of the 2nd router
hope this helps

How do I turn off wireless security?

  • Disable the fire wall by logging in to the administration interface of your router and looking for a firewall section. The administration interfaces differ depending on the manufacturer and model, so your wireless router might not have a firewall section. If it does, click on that section and turn off the firewall.

  • 2

    Forward a port. If the firewall is preventing an external computer from connecting to your internal client, you will need to forward a port to your client.

  • 3

    Find your internal IP address.

  • 4

    Click on "Start -> Run..." and enter "cmd" into the box. When the command-line pops up, enter "ipconfig" and hit "Enter." Find your IP address in the statistics that are printed out.

  • 5

    Refer to your software's documentation to find which port number must be forwarded.

  • 6

    Log in to your router's administration interface.

  • 7

    Click on "Port Forwarding" or an equivalently named section. The name of the section will differ depending on your router's manufacturer and model.

  • 8

    Add, on the correct port, a forward to your IP address. You will have to update this port forward in the future if your IP address changes. If your IP address changes often, ask your network administrator for a static IP address

    Need to change IP address for Actiontec router for verizon fios

    definately you will need to change the IP address.
    But you can also change the IP address of the wireless extender.
    so instead of changing the IP address of the router, you can change the IP address of the extender.
    For that you will need to connect the computer to the Extender.
    assign a static IP to the computer and Default gateway that will open the set up page of the extender.
    change the IP addres of the extender to
    that will help you.

    I purchased a wre54g range expander and have tried everything but it doesnt work

    Who is the manufacturer of your wireless router?
    check the IP address of your router.
    connect the computer to the router and check the Ip address of the computer and the default gateway number. Default gateway is the IP address of your router. suppose the default gateway is then open the set up page of the router . check the wireless settings of the router SSID ,channel and the security settings. Do not change the settings on the router.
    If you are using WPA2 security settings them that will network on the WRE54G.
    Now your range expander and the router IP addresses should be in the same range. Suppose you router IP address is 192.168.x.y and the IP address of the WRE54G is by default
    Now the x in the router IP address should be 1.
    If it is, then connect the WRE to the router and open the set up page of WRE. change the wireless settigns on the WRE and power cycle the WRE and the router.
    It should work

    I have a Netwave Base G4 wireless router w/ 4- port switch,trying to network two computers via cable modem using local ports,modem and router not communicating

    You need to change the LAN IP address of your router. Open the router's admin through and look for router's IP address or Local IP Address. Change it to and save the settings. Reboot the router after that. If you are on cable internet , you need to do MAC Cloning. Access the router's admin page and look for MAC Clone settings. Enable and clone the PC's Mac Address. Save the settings and power cycle the router and the modem after that.

    Dax router

    The 2 wire Home Portal 100w is a Modem/Router combination with wireless. But it has only one LAN port. So I understand that you are trying to use a DAX router for extending the number or ports. The reason they may not communicate if 2wire LAN is connected to DAX WAN is both may have same IP address. If the router has similar IP on WAN and LAN, it will not communicate. For that changing DAX router's LAN IP will be a solution or you can do LAN to LAN cascading. Connect 2Wire LAN to DAX LAN and dont use the WAN port. This way you dont have to change anything in the configuration

    Cannot log on to dwl2000ap

    If the SSID changed to the default then you know that the router reset to the default settings and you should set your computer to automatically get its IP address via DHCP. I always set up my routers through a Wired connection first, just to setup the router and then go with the wireless. The default for the router should be and subnet . If the computer is set with a static IP address, change it to obtain an IP address automatically or the network card will not bother even looking for an address.

    Dlink di-524 connect to RV042


    You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.

    Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of, and the DLINK IP uses Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.

    Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.

    This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.

    Wireless connection

    JRSavage - The solution you supllied is to assign the IP address to the client. It appears Guest is asking how to log into the Router.

    Guest - If the router is a wireless router then you should not have to know it's IP to connect to it, simply looks for it's SSID in WIndows Zero Config wireless util (or the util that came with your wireless adapter)

    If you're connected and looking how to log into the router itself you'll want to enter the router's IP address into the address bar of your internet browser.

    If you're looking for where you enter the router's IP for NIC configuration, you would enter the Router's IP as the Gateway address.
