Are you using the same brand? setting up 2 routers is possible. you have yo decide first which one is the main router. if you had the wired router already setup with internet it would be better if you make it the main router.

the easiest way to setup the 2 routers are by these steps:

1. check the ip of each router. make sure they are NOT the same. If your first router is 192.168.0.1, you have to change the second router ip address to 192.168.1.1. Or vice versa

2.Set the second router to Automatic configuration or for netgear select the option "NO" for "DOES YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRES A LOGIN"

make sure everything in BASIC SETTINGS are set to Dynamic or Default settings.

3.Switch off the second router then connect the it to any of the available lan port on the first router.

4. then check internet

How can I get the router IP of my Linksys 2.4GHz broadband router?


The Linksys G router gives you both wired and wireless connections over a broadband Internet connect to create a local area network. The Linksys router is compatible with wireless G and B devices, through the 2.4-GHz wireless band. The wireless speed is at 54 megabytes per second and you can get 100 megabytes per second with a wired connection. You have to set up the wireless configuration on the Linksys before using it on your network.

Plug the router's power cable into an electrical outlet. Attach an Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back of the router. Connect the other end into your broadband modem. Connect your computer to the Linksys G using another Ethernet cable. This Ethernet cable can go into any of the wired router ports. Open your Internet browser. Type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and hit "Enter." This is your router's IP address and the home of its Web configuration page. Click "Wireless." Click "Manual." Alter your SSID, also known as your network name. You can change this name to any value that you want. You can also change the wireless channel if you are in an area with many wireless connections that may interfere. Click "Save Changes." Click "Wireless Security." Choose an encryption method to encrypt your wireless transmissions. WPA or WPA2 are common security protocols you can use in wireless networks. Input a network key, also known as the network password. Click "Save Changes."

My px810fw , i would like to have a wireless connection and wired connection is this possible with this model.


To be able to set up wireless printer configuration, there are three basic items that you need to have. They are a high-speed broadband Internet connection (with modem), a high speed wireless router and wireless network adaptors. These three items will be used in setting up the wireless printer. Assuming that there is already an existing network in the home or office space, then all that is needed to do to make the printer available in the network through the operating system's networking wizard. If not, then the network must first be established, only then the printer will be made available through that network.

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router


To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.

5449-003.png

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

Replacing a wired router with wifi router?


Setting up a wireless router is usually very simple, and the entire process should be well explained in the users manual of the router you choose to purchase (as far as setting up security, plugging things in, etc.). You do want to make sure that all the computer's that will be using the network have a wireless adapter built in, if not you will need to purchase those as well (one for each computer). Also consider the speed at which you need to access the internet, as using wifi can slow your connection speeds a little bit, usually its not noticeable though. There are currently 2 popular wifi "modes" Wireless G, which is around 10mbs (not very fast, but fast enough for most users), or Wireless N, which is the fastest available today around 150mbs.
Hope this helped.

What is the security key


You can get the key by going into the setup of the wireless router. That's where you setup a key, or passphrase, and security options for anyone else connecting to your wireless network. Sometimes your router might have a default key on a sticker or in the manual.

Generally you access your wireless routers through the PC that is wired to your router and for setting it up.

You need to first find out how to login to your router's setup. Often it can be using your browser going to 192.168.1.1, but it varies router to router.

From there you can get your key information to be used on the other wireless computers so they can access the wireless network.

Once you have the key, you then go to each wireless computer and go to your Control Panel, then click Network Connections, then look for any wireless connection. If your wireless router is working, your other wireless computers should see the wireless network, then click to connect.

1 Answer

I just installed d-link wbr-1310. I am getting 1/4 the speed using wireless. Are there any setting I change to resolve this.


Wireless connections are running on a slower speed by definition.

A wired connection with this router sets the maximum speed at 100 Mbps.

A wireless signal in a 802.11b network has a maximum speed of 11 Mbps, and a 802.11g network has a maximum speed of 54 Mbps.

These numbers are theoretical numbers and never achieved in reality. (like a Toyota Prius makes 60mpg...)

So depending on your wireless network adapter and how your setup physically looks like (distance to the router, interference with telephones, microwaves etc.) it is absolutely possible that you wireless speed is considerably slower than your wired connection.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences


Connecting to the Wireless Network

2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

We hope that the above steps provided would help resolve the problem. If the steps above did not work, we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?

Network key retreival


Is it possible that you never changed the default wireless key? If you didn't, the number in '[ ]' brackets printed on the bottom label is the wireless key.

If you've changed that from the default when setting up your wireless network, you'll most likely have to reset your router.

Of course, if you do a reset on your router, you will also have to re-enter your DSL account / password in the router

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.
