The ethernet cable must be used only for setup... because dwl-g710 is a repeater... or extender... in other word, if you want get internet via ethernet and wireless you need a ap client, like dwl-2100ap or better... i don't know if dwl-g710 can be configured as ap client

Are you using the correct cable type. If it is a CAT5 type cable it could be you are using a patch cable rather than a straight through type or vise versa.

I have a NetGear router set up as a primary router connected to the modem but it was giving me problems with WiFi. I bought Bellkin f7d4302 to use for reliable WiFi connection and also to connect my main...


I got your issue, I hope you are trying to connect the 2nd router to the first router through LAN-LAN connection (i.e, LAN port of the first router is connected to the LAN port of the 2nd router)

Then you need to change the ipaddress of the 2nd Play Wireless router . Please follow these steps.

1. Connect the computer-router with ethernet cable and open up internet explorer and clear the address box and type in and hit enter.

2. You will be logged into the Belkin router setup page, in the Left hand side under LAN setup click on LAN settings

3. It will ask for Login password, leave it blank and click on submit

4. Change the LAN ipaddress from to and click ok

5. The page will say cannot be displayed, then clear the address box and type in and hit enter

6. If your first router is connected to the internet , then automatically the internet status will says connected

7. You will be able to go online wired

Good Luck!
Thanks in Advance!

Definition of the sound card, internet lan & wireless lan

The definition of the sound card, is a chipset integrated into the main board of your laptop, in order to provide sound to your built-in speakers, or to the headphone jack on your laptop. Internet LAN (or Local Area Network) is a port located either on the side or the rear of your computer, where you would plug in a Cable/DSL High-Speed Internet connection, using an Ethernet cable (also called RJ-45). Wireless LAN is the same idea, only instead of using an ethernet cable to provide you access to the internet, it uses a wireless signal or radio frequency, to connect to a wireless access point (usually provided by a wireless router in the area). More in-depth information can be found at the following links:

Connecting a wireless router to Tiscalli broadband connection

  1. USB modem is connecting a PC USB port with a DSL phone line: CANNOT be connected to a ROUTER LAN (ethernet NOT USB port).
  2. Wireless ROUTER is NOT a modem and it CANNOT connect the Internet (or WAN) LAN port to any "phone line"
  3. Connect the Router Internet (WAN) port to Modem (you need a LAN MODEM = a modem with a LAN/ETHERNET port)
  4. Be sure your internet is running before strting ROUTER configuration with Router Company CD

Dax router

The 2 wire Home Portal 100w is a Modem/Router combination with wireless. But it has only one LAN port. So I understand that you are trying to use a DAX router for extending the number or ports. The reason they may not communicate if 2wire LAN is connected to DAX WAN is both may have same IP address. If the router has similar IP on WAN and LAN, it will not communicate. For that changing DAX router's LAN IP will be a solution or you can do LAN to LAN cascading. Connect 2Wire LAN to DAX LAN and dont use the WAN port. This way you dont have to change anything in the configuration

Will a computer with 10/10 LAN connect to my wireless LAN?

The 10/100 LAN is a wired connection. If it is connected to the wrt54g through an ethernet cable yes it will see anything on the wireless connection but if you want the computer to use a wireless connection then you will need to get an 802.11B or 802.11G wireless adapter. The wireless adapter does not have to be Linksys but it does generally make thing easier if you use all the same brand.
