Angry at new wireless router
Router 1 (R1): Linksys 8-port BEFSR81 192.168.1.1 (gateway ADSL connection)
Router 2 (R2): *NEW* Linksys wireless 4-port WRT54G 192.168.1.2
Suggestion from Linksys is to connect with a normal cable from a normal port on R1 to the internet port on R2
If i do that i have no connection to 1) the router setup program, 2) other pc's plugged in to R2
I connected with a normal cable from a normal port on R1 to a normal port on R2
Configuration basic setup
In the basic setup i cannot choose PPPOE because i cannot assign 192.168.1.1 as the gateway
Static IP is not possible (dhcp)
DHCP is the only possible configuration
As a switch it is doing it's job and i can administer it
But as a router i cannot get it to work.
I don't have a internet connection through the wireless setup. I filled in the static DNS info, but there's no place to fill in the gateway ... that must be the reason i cannot get inet working
Configuration advanced routing
AHA, here i can fill in the gateway (192.168.1.1), but i keep getting an error: "Gateway not directly reachable through that interface"
Suggestions would be very welcome, kind a tired from trying to solve this (since thursday)
can you enlighten me why you have 2 routers for only 1 internet connection? That might go a long for solving the problem:)
connect internet on New router2. Configure everything here (DNS, DHCP)
connect UTP cross-cable between switch port on R2 to R1 switch port. (disable everything on R2, DNS, DHCP) Play
I tip my hat for you, SIR!
changed R2 -> 192.168.1.1
changed R1 -> 192.168.1.2
connect internet on New router2. check
Configure everything here (DNS, DHCP) check
connect UTP cross-cable between switch port on R2 to R1 switch port.
cross-cable no go, regular cable = go
(disable everything on R2, DNS, DHCO) Play
as everything was working, i disabled everything on R1
.. it still works
owe you one (or two) :ws:
Only remaining problem is the unaccesible "wireless" - tab for setting up security
... but that's something for tomorrow
regarding the unaccessible wireless tab; is it greyed out on router2? is wireless enabled? are you able to connect to it wirelessly?
b) cannot access tab (even can't set ssid)
c) no (thought it was, but (expensive) phone-connection was taken)
going to reset the router to factory settings tomorrow, think that will fix it, i'm home now (where everything works great)
thx for your help!
'cause sometimes accessibility >>> security :)
In stead of trying to hide and lock everything,
i use all my energy to produce even more data and put that excessive amount of data online, ... unsecured
no way someone wants to wade through this junk
you have to ask yourself, what do I have to hide and what effort will people do to get onto your network, and for what reason
