I have a Netgear WPN824 router which I intend to use to link my laptop, etc wirelessly to my Broadband connection.
I needed something with an ADSL modem connection to link this up and have used another Netgear DG834 modem/router.
My idea was, to disable the wireless on the DG834 and use the wireless connectivity on the WPN as it has more range. I have the DG all connected to the internet and the WPN connected up too, via the DG modem/router.
Problems I am now having:
1) Every now and then (quite regularly) it puts spurious characters (%20 etc) into website links which then have to be manually taken out before I can get access to the pages. These are on my favourites alright, etc but seem to come up incorrectly sometimes.
2) When I try to link to wireless, I only seem to see the DG router - even though I told it not to go wirelessly and this means I only get 54Mbps connection instead of the 108Mbps I wanted.
Are there any settings, etc I may have missed, or does anyone have any experience in this who could pooint me where to llok for a solution.
Thanks in advance
OK got this all working ok, except the wireless bit.
I want to disable the wireless option on the small DG834 and enable it on the WPN824 so that it is my main wireless connection to the net.
What exactly do I need to do to get this working? I have had a rummage in the setup and cannot figure this out....
Do I need to route the WPN via the DG router/modem? If so, how is this done?
Layman terms please :)
There should be an option to disable wireless on your routers setup page, normally 192.168.x.1 (try 0, 1 and 2). After that's done on the DG, simply wire one of the LAN ports from the DG to the WPN and configure the router as if it's direct internet.
