Question about SMC Barricade SMC7401BRA (SMC7401BRA-ADSL) Bridge/Router

1 Answer

I have a belkin vision N1 modem router connected to the Internet by ADSL and I wish to connect to it a SMC Barricade N with a 20Meter cat 6 cable to improve wireless reception on the other side of the building. I can not find a configuration for the SMC that lets me connect to the Internet. Can you suggest one please?

Can you clarify the problem?

Consdier first that both devices are NAT firewalls and your ISP probably only allows one address. So you would need to put one behind the other. This may not work like you plan. PCs behind the second will not be seen on the LAN by PCs on the first.

The N1 is a very good router. Consider relocting it to a more central location.

Another trick is to locate it near a central wall if it is block. By adding 1 remote antenna and drilling through that wall witha short antenna cable you can get much better coverage on the other side.

It could also be an ethernet problm 1. Power down SMC, plug WAN of SMC to LAN of router and power up SMC. If both devices show link lights and activity the hardware is OK. If not you need a "crossover" cable.

Hope that helps.

My internet is greatly reduced with Belkin N1 vision wireless (before the hook-up it was 15mbps now only 5mbps), I have tested by hooking directly from the modem to the computer and got 15mbps. Before N1,...


When you only get 5 mbps are you connecting to the new router wirelessly or via the ethernet cable? If it is wirelessly then try connecting with an ethernet cable and see if you still get 5 mbps. If so then try resetting the router (the procedures for this will be explained in the manual) and re-test. Wireless connections can slow down due to obstacles such as thick walls or other obstacles of that type. If all else fails return the unit and try another.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).

For SMC7904WBRA :: How to use Cable Modem on ADSL router/modem


Looks like your device does not support playing router for cable internet. Would recommend you get an actual router, or alternately if you have a computer with two network adaptors you could plug one into cable modem, plug other in to LAN side of router, then configure turn Windows Internet Connection service, will need to disable the DHCP service on the router. I highly recommend you get a real cable/dsl router to do this tho. Linksys 54g series has been one of my favorites.
