If your trying to connect wirelessly....
first check all of your router settings
Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.be sure it is set to broadcast the signal and not hidden

--be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the pc---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

Why is Cisco router not giving internet access to guests


I'll venture a guess that some file sharing or such activities are going on, using up the three guest IPs. I'd suggest upping the number of guest access in the router to something like 10, then taking it down from there. Perhaps don't broadcast SSID if you want to ensure someone is leeching your internet bandwidth, and share the name (SSID) only with your friends/guests.

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router with the wireless computer.
you will need to connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.
check the IP address of the computer.

Connect two adsl router use static ip


you first have to do subnetting of the ip which you are using if you use VLSM much better because you will not waste any of the IP it uses /30 net mask which means only two host allows to conenct in that subnet range. then connect both routers via serial link give the ip address on serial link of both routers make sure you give clock rate on DCE cable both the the router's serial port ip on the same subnet. try this and it will solve your problem. let me know hpw did you go. thanks.

Unable to connect 2 routers need help!


Hi,

Do you have any funky subnets for your Cisco router? Do not connect the wireless router to your network yet, as it may have the same IP address as your other router.

Basically the easiest way to do this is to set a dedicated IP for the 2Wire router on the Cisoo router. Then make them stay on the same subnet, but give an IP range for your Cisco router, like 1-50 or something. If you give the 2Wire router IP .51 for instance, then give the Wifi users on the 2Wire IP range from .52-75 or something.

Make the 2Wire router only use wifi and not serve DHCP addresses. Then you setup the 2Wire router to get its info from the Cisco router.

I searched and there is no howto out there for doing this with a Cisco router. However, here is one I used to setup a similar scenario with a Netgear router. It worked. If you are able to translate a bit, it might work for you:

http://kbserver.netgear.com/inquira/default.asp?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=306896&action_code=5&highlight_info=16778323,235,239&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fkbserver.netgear.com%2Fkb_web_files%2Fn101236.asp&answer_id=6056802#__highlight

Here is another article:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/inquira/default.asp?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=306896&action_code=5&highlight_info=16777285,246,260&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fkbserver.netgear.com%2Fkb_web_files%2FN101496.asp&answer_id=6056800#__highlight

Let me know if you are able to work through this. You need to give the 2wire router a static IP and you need to NOT use it for wired connections, and not use it to serve DHCP settings.

Installing acces point


Yes, you can chain routers together if you'd like, however people who connect to the first router connected to the modem will not be able to see the people connected to the chained router. However, people connected to the chained router will be able to see the other people connected to the main router.
