No it will not work you cannot connect a router to another router wirelessly and it will most likely not be detecting each other, routers are built to transmit internet signals from modems if you have a router and a computer but you do not have your own internet connection that will not work conencting to another router you will need USB Wifi Card transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your friends wireless internet.
but if your friend only has a modem you can lend him your router and get a USB wifi transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your router that is conencted to your friends modem this will work but will not work if you and you friend will both have a router creating a network.
More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?
Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?
If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?
If you are "upstairs", is the wireless signal from the "downstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "upstairs"?
If the upstairs computer is working then the router must be working properly. Check the connection between the downstairs computer and the router. If it is a wireless computer then check the wireless connection status on that computer. Click Here for step by step solution
No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.
Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".
Hi more likely it seems to be an issue with the Ethernet card on the concerned computer. If you have a cross over cable then please connect that computer to another laptop and check if it still shows the error msg or shows connected. Let me know if you need any other help.
When you move upstairs there is a solid wall in between that interfears with the signals.The only thing you can try is calling up belikin and asking them to check your settings on the router and see if changing the mode or channel helps. i wont recommend you do that on your own as you may end losing the connection altogether.
Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).
1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)
If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.
Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router. Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location. If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)
try to bring another laptop to the location where you are having problem and see if the other laptop will have the same problem. if thats the case the problem is with the router. You can try upgrading the router's firmware or change the wireless channel
hi, even if it's connected properly if its not properly configured it still wont connect..so does it mean that other pc could connect? how bout your main pc does it work? which pc wont work? whats the o.s.? if you like i could help you i just need to know the full detail so i could help you diagnose it
