Hey guys, I need some help with adding a wireless router to an existing wired network.
I recently purchased a NETGEAR WGR614v7 Wireless router wishing to add a wireless network around my house.
I have been on adsl ever since so I have had a wired network for a few years now, and i havn't really touched the setup.
My setup at the moment includes a
DYNA-LINK RTA210 ADSL Router, which connected to a SURECOM EP-808X 8-port Ethernet mini switch (since I've had up to 3 computers connected to the internet).
What i am now trying to do is trying to add the NETGEAR wireless router into the network while keeping the wired connected for the computers I have at the moment.
I have tried using the Quick installation guide provided (or atleast downloaded since I am on Vista), but it comes to a point after it says "Resetting the Network", it stops and says it is unable to find the network.
So obviously I did something wrong, but i am not too sure what i did, was it the "exisiting network" i chose? (i chose a router connected to a modem connected to a computer)
I then decided to manually set up the router by going into the router login (via 192.168.1.1) and tried adding in my Orcon details and ip addresses etc. At this point i have my existing set up of the RTA201 Router which is set up to the ethernet switch, which i then have an ethernet cable connected to one of its ports which is then connected to the Internet port of the wireless router.
I am thinking that this setup is incorrect, but i am able to see the wireless network via my laptop. I connect to it, and disconnect the ethernet cable. I am now on the home network wirelessly and can see the other computers in the network. However, the network is Local only and i am unable to quire the internet with it.
Sorry for the long read, but can someone please help me with this set up, I have tried looking through the net, but some are either over my head, or some are irrelevant. I do understand it has to do with some DHCP settings and having to disable them or something, but I do not know what to do for that.
Thank you all in advance and hopefully someone out there will be able to help me :)
