Hello was hoping someone could help I currently have a TP Link TD- W8901G ADSL MODEM ROUTER + ACCES POINT. My girlfriend is now my neighbor and i wanted to pass her internet. i ran a cat5 cable to her house, and connected it to my old linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router access point in her house. I can get internet through the cat5  going through the linksys router. but as soon as i turn on the wireless on the linksys router in her house i lose the internet connection completly. No wireless or no internet in the cat 5. Maybe some one could tell me a step by step how to. We want wireless in her house. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Make sure you've turned off all the routing capabilities, and DHCP in the router in her house, and set it up as just a bridge.  Put the Ethernet from your internet-connected router into one of the "LAN" ports on that router.

Also though, how long is that Cat5? Is it outdoor rated? And how did you run it - hopefully buried and inside of a conduit?

exactly what setting do i have to turn off? and no not only is it not outdoor rated but its not burried or in a conduit. I leave in a small town in southern Peru and dont have where i can purchase outdoor cat5, i looked and couldnt find. The cable is about 30m.

hat cable might not last so long :) Burying it in a garden hose would work fairly well.

As long as the wireless is enabled and bridged to the ethernet port as well, it should be OK?  Someone else might be more familiar with the interface on that specific router...

When you connect to the wireless:

1. Is the PC getting an IP address?  What is it?  You can find it on Windows box by opening a command prompt and typing "ipconfig /all" (put the output here if you like)

2. Can you ping the router (the one that's connected to the internet).  It should be your "Default Route" from the ipconfig output above.
