Hi all

 

I am trying to use the Linksys X2000 to extend the wifi coverage. I have gone through the usual steps of assigning the old router another IP address and turned off the DHCP server, etc.

 

The issue I get is that if I try to connect via Wifi, I can connect but it says there is no internet available but if I connect via ethernet, it connects to to the internet without any issues. I am running the latest firmware on it (2.0.05).

 

My set up is the Fritzbox 7490 on a fibre connection.

 

The only thing I could think of, is that I am not using the original power supply with the router, do you think that is the issue or is the router on its last legs?

 

I appreciate your help.

Neither. Should be connected by yellow LAN interface port so no routing occurs.

Yes, the 2 routers are connected by Cat 6 via the yellow LAN ports.

I never found the wireless on my old X2000 any good, would always drop out and was unreliable, I replaced it with a X3000 and that was just as bad. In the end I bought and Asus router.

 

I would save yourself the trouble and just buy a proper wireless router rather than trying to re-purpose a dodgy modem.

It's getting to that point!
