Question about Netopia 2247NWG-VGx Wireless Router (2247NWGVGX)
I have 3 netopia routers linked together via cat5e. The reason for this is because the first one is in house no 1 connected to a dell dimension running xp.router no 2 is in house no 2 and connected to a dell vostro running vista and router no 3 is in house no 3 connected to a acer aspire laptop running vista.The reason for 3 routers is because of really solid walls with poor wireless signals between the 3 houses.Situation at present: pc nos 1 and 3 do not connect when laptop is running and intermittent or poor connection on pcs 1 and 3. How can i get all 3 pc to run at the same time.
How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house? CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it. You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers.
Also, who has the actual internet connection? I'm assuming House 2 does. One big problem is a router is your Gateway address. And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway". And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches. Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3. That would be the best way to handle this problem. It would also end your connectivity problems.
