Hi, I want to connect my GE Kalatel DVMRe Triplex to my desktop pc. The DVMRe manual states if contecting directly to the PC to use a Cross Over Ethernet Conection. The problem is the ethernet port on my PC is being used by DSL modem and wireless router. Or can I connect the DVMRe to a wireless router and config that router as a repeater so it will talk with the wireless router that is currently connected to my PC? As you guessed I am not computer savy, help. Thanks

Re: Connecting a DVMRe to a PC
I have done what you are talking about with making the one router act as a network bridge. It is a pain in the **** to do but with enough time it can be done. The main things you need to do are:
Configure the 2nd router as a bridge/access point.
Disable DHCP on that router and give it a static IP address on the same subnet as your main router.
Use the same exact wireless encryption for both routers. I believe I used WPA2 and set the passwords for both to be the same key.
LOL. It is a pretty involved project and took me a little bit. The only reason I did this in the first place was I promised my gf that I wouldn't spend 100$ to get my XBOX360 online and since I had a spare wireless laying around I decided to see if it could be done. I'll see if I can dig up a few sites I visited that helped me along the way. Good luck!

Make sure you are connecting the monitor signal lead to the correct signal output on the rear of the machine. Some desktops have extra video out connectors when they have a graphics card fitted. If yours has a graphics card the display connector will be away from the back USB ,audio and keyboard ports and near to some silver pop out panels near the bottom of the tower.
