Default Connecting 2 routers togehter

Hi,
I have a 2wire modem that i got from telstra when i signed up with them but over the years the wireless stuffs up every time i try to connect to it. I bought a netgear dgn3500 (big mistake) and i found that it runs about 3 times slower. Is it possible to run the internet through the 2 wire modem and then connect the netgear to it for wireless? or perhaps a way to massively increase netgear performance?

You have mistaken this for a network router forum. This forum is focused on woodworking routers.

No big deal ... very common mistake.

However, the subject line prompts a spurious thought!!! What about linking routers together? After all, industry years ago ganged drill presses in twos, threes and even fours. How about a router table with two sequential routers to do complicated ogee-type curves? O.K., I'm partially jesting.

Interesting idea. You could surely cut down the time it would take to run material through two different cutters on one machine.

Someone had a 3 station router table posted on here before, for each cut in the door making process.

Is double router would speed the connection? Any idea of this?

Hi TehanZORZ - if you're also into woodworking, then stick around & enjoy!

But a suggestion is to join the CyberTech Help site, and then check out the 'Networking' sub-forum; I've been a member there for years; mainly PC oriented but Apple & Linux have some presence - good luck in solving your network router issue - Dave

No help until you learn to spell!

The modem may be the bottleneck, or perhaps your line speed isn't very good, as you appear to be using twisted pair. Check your line speed with your ISP. The solution is probably to get a new faster modem.

Yeah, I know we're not a that kind of router forum, but what te heck...

Cheers,
Roger

TehanZORZ,

If you are still watching this thread, you may be able to do this by putting your new Netgear router into a different mode, such as gateway mode. You will need to make sure that you assign this device a static ip address and disable dhcp on the router. This will allow your 2wire device to provide the ip addressed via dhcp to your wireless clients. You will need to pug the Cat5 cable into one of the internal network ports, not the internet port, otherwise you may have problems getting the dhcp to work through the device. You will essentially be turning your Netgear router into a network switch with a wireless antenna.

I use a similar setup in my office where I have a dedicated wireless router for only wireless clients, but not as the gateway to the internet. Unfortunately, I do not have a Netgear unit to look at the menu for you.

If you do not need to communicate from the internet to your wrieless users, you may be able to just plug the Netgear router's internet port into the 2Wire wired internal network port. The Netgear will then be used in its typical router mode.

Good Luck
