Question about ASUS WL-500g Wireless Router (WL500GDLX)
I have a static IP/Netmask/Gateway/DNS, works perfectly with my laptop. This laptop doesn't have wireless (win xp). Also tried these settings with another laptop (so a different MAC), again works fine. Well, when I try to connect the router to the internet it simply doesn't work. My setup is as follows: INTERNET CABLE -> WAN PORT from the router and LAPTOP <- NETWORK CABLE -> ROUTER (tried all ports) Basically I have no internet connection. Am I doomed to stay wired and ignore the router from now on? :( Or eventually do I need to change the router? Any help would be greately appreciated guys. Thanks a lot.
My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.
