This is an excellent article about DSL. However,
satellite DSL should be considered as an alternative, particulary in rural areas without regular DSL access.
I have comcast modem-router all in one. is it better to use that or buy a separate router to be able to connect an internet DVR with 4 cameras?
I already have a great modem and have just recently bought a wireless capable laptop. Is there something that can be connected to one of the LAN ports on the back of the existing modem that sends out a wireless signal, enabling the laptop to use that internet?
Hi Leo! Great article
I actually have a pretty specific question...I use an encore wireless router and I just purchased an Edimax access point, now here's the deal...
I want to use it to "enhance" the wireless signal to make it go to the other side of my house (1 story only), I wanted to use the universal repeater mode so I had to downgrade it...what I've done is basically detect my wi-fi connection and make the edimax enhance it but it seems there is no luck...
When checking on my notebook for the actual connections I am able to see that the MAC address (or SSID I believe) is the same one than the one from my original router, not the Edimax...
Am I mistaken or the MAC address shown should be the one from the Edimax?
I tried to configure it as an AP+WDS and I get "connected" but I don't have any data transfer (I can't do anything), so...if you have any clue on this it would be awesome and a great help
Thx for your time!
I am using a linksys/cisco wireless router WRT310N, connected to my DSL modem. Because I have a large home, I connected a linksys/cisco WRT54G2, via a RJ45, to a LAN port on the back of the WRT310N to act as an access point (AP). It all works great except, I can only connect one device at a time to the AP. I set it up with static IP, and turned DHCP off. It works that way, and I can connect one device. How do I configure the AP to connect multiple devices at a time?
I was hoping to run this by you, because no matter how many people I ask, whether it's manufacturers, or computer shops, etc, I keep getting different opinions.
I currently have a network set up that consits of a Billion VOIP Router that sits in my office, and is lan cabled or wireless. This has a switch box that runs off it. There is a cable that is lanned down to my house underground that is approximately 35 metres away. In the house I have another switch box that connects up to the office so that we can use the internet down here via lan.
What I'm hoping to do is make the house wireless off the existing internet connection which is administered through the Router up in the office, but don't know what to do.
A wireless extender is out of the question as we live on acerage and then 2 storey home, so the range is not suffice, so I was thinking that maybe an Access Point in the house to give me wireless connectivity to my laptops and still lan for the bedroom computers would be fantastic.
I don't know where to plug the Access Point into if I go that way, does it go into the switch box down in the house, or does it get plugged into a lan point?
Your help would be so appreciated.
Here's what I've got - in a home office, a cable modem and a wireless router. Computer hard-wired into router, printer and laptop, wireless.
Now, I want to add a couple of audio/video devices in the living room -they're made to be hard-wired, they have ethernet connections. I don't want to run cable, can I plug these devices into an access point, and the router will "see" the access point?
once upon a time one wifi cellphone device add my network.i was removed the device from my network.but i dont know reconnect the removed device to my network.so,please tell how to reconncet the wifi device (cellphone). or how to connect the wireless device to my router
We have a wireless LAN that works fine and provides internet. I want to add a secondary router as an access point so the LAN printer plugged in to it can be accessed on the network as well. Its a Belkin. I have set it to be as an access point only w IP address 192.168.2.2. It is not visible. Before I had set it to be as an access point only it conflicted with the internet provision, presumably bc both routers we trying to source the internet.
