    What's the status of the wireless port after instaling a router?


    Low hours pilot here.

    I don't understand the status of a gateway's wireless channel after installing a router on one of it's Ethernet ports. Does it change? Is it a separate network verses the the boxes connected thru the router to the gateway's Ethernet jack? My Xfinity gateway, a TG1682G, has a bridge mode. That seems to imply the wireless channel lives on another network. Or does it?

    This is all directed to understanding a windows 10 based business network without a server. The wireless capability is throwing me.


    Thank you for your patience. I know this has been asked before and I have visited a few other sites. It's just not clicking.

    :)

    Wireless modem router plus printer port ?

    Hello guys.

    Does it exist? A Wireless ADSL modem router with printer port all-in-one ?
    If not, what is the best option to buy?
    All 3 separated? Or Wireless router with printer server and a modem?

    I would like an adsl modem suggestion that its very solid and doesnt freeze. Because I have a Dlink-500B and this thing freezes a lot.

    And if you know any website that is specialized in modems please let me know.

    Thank you.

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".

    How to configure a wireless router and an ADSL router to provide an internet connection

    I made a mistake when purchasing a faster wireless router and did not specify it should have an ADSL port. So to use it I have connected it's WAN port to a LAN port of the ADSL router.

    There seem to be several ways of configuring these devices. Could someone suggest the "best" or "most beneficial" way please?

    There are 2 PCs and one printer connecting wirelessly.

    One of the PCs picks up a dynamic IP

    The other PC has a static IP (192.168.0.200)

    The printer has a static IP (192.168.0.210)

    Wireless router

    • Lan IP: 192.18.0.1
    • WAN IP: 10.0.0.248 (static)
    • WAN default gateway: 10.0.0.2

    The ADSL router connects to the internet fine. I have turned off dynamic IP.

    The PCs connect to the wireless router, the internet and each other ok.

    The printer connects and works if set to use the ADSL router's default gateway (10.0.0.2) and a static IP (10.0.0.251). It connects but does not work if using the wireless router's default gateway (192.168.0.1) with a static IP (192.168.0.210)

    I would like the printer to connect the wireless router and work...

    I don't know why I selected DNS IPs. The primary is 062.024.134.005 on the PCs and wireless router. I get the impression this is a separate issue from the connections problem above.
