Our new router to boost length of your network so you can get to it in more places around your house or have better connection on the other side of the house or in another level of your house like the second story. The story of the rich and the first thing we need to do is to take out your old router plug it in with the power cord and hold the reset button for 10 to 30 seconds so reset to factory settings after you have done that well actually with first thing to do is to disable your Wi-Fi by going to up right click and go to open network and sharing center and then change adapter settings right click Wi-Fi and disabled.
I’ve already done that and enable your Ethernet connection, if you have already disabled it and that’s what we needed to protect you. Now you have to connect first through cord to your neutral router to do this because by default wireless access is denied to the admin page which we are going to now open up Internet Explorer because Firefox is not like my old router. I have a wrt54g version 2 and then we go to 192 that 168 11 an address bar and hit enter it will ask you for a username and password username blank or don’t put on there and then type in admin for the password.
The admin page for your old daughter the first thing you do is go to wireless and select a wireless network name I like in a mine after the firmware version of the current router. So I can keep an eye on which ones they are it is easy for me to remember and then put ms home after it at the end of it and click save settings next let’s set while securities and all game that no one else can get on it without us knowing or people is using your internet freely select wpa2 personal and then AES and type 8 digit password. But we’re going to use Bob 1 2 3 4 5 as password and click save settings this will not cut you off because we’re going to get to a chord.
Now let’s wait for it to go back ok next going to set up at the first part select your imp you sighs – man you on 49 to space for Xbox Live and is able to DHCP server the reason we’re doing this is because this router will not be giving IP addresses out. We use as basic switch instead of a router and because we’re using the other router as basically the main router using this other router that we’re using the secondary matter as the as a switch & select Save Settings now go to advanced routing on the setup tab and go to gateway and select router we’re doing this because there are more than one router on their current network. We have and if you look gateway it will not work but router will ignore the rest of this and click Save Settings have to wait a couple seconds a couple seconds with that enough we need to do.
Now take your a Ethernet plug from your other router and plug it into a client port not the internet port but a client port of your other router of the old router the one we’re using the boost plug the other cord in you have to use court you can’t use a wireless bridge because that doesn’t work, you have to have a long cable if you want if you want to have this to work plug into a client portal. So a picture of that right now ok once we that plugged in minimize this and then go to your network settings go to network and sharing Center go to change adapter settings disable the Ethernet and enable Wi-Fi again.
And why’s that and it’s already connected let’s disconnect just for that fit ok that connect automatically if you’re going to be using this one permanently and click connect and we’ll ask for a password here already saved it so it’s Bob 1 2 3 4 5 is my password so that is the one we just couldn’t get that we just correct quit created and let’s test it out see if the internet works go to Google. It works actually I found out that the rows that have the antennas on them have a better range than the wireless n router that I’m currently using as my main router before I did this and so we have everything working right now.
Let’s go back internet explorer and sleep if we have an IP address my main problems is that it will not connect wirelessly why you have to see you have to select that manually let’s go and disabled wifi, disable Wi-Fi again and enable Ethernet. I forgot to enable wireless access to the heat the admin page and in explores freezing up, I’m wired again. Now I’m not sure where the wireless it’s probably on this tab and I don’t know why well we don’t have a IP address because there’s no plug in to the Internet port they’re both plug into the client port if you have an IP address here you’re doing something wrong with some the booster router you should not have any IP addresses or anything here and exit this fabled Ethernet enable Wi-Fi.
