I just changed from DSL to Cable. The cable modem is a Cisco DPC3825 Wireless Gateway. It is installed in the basement with the rest of the household wiring infrastructure.
The DPC3835 is connected, via Ethernet, to a WRT54G2 Router located on the main floor.
I have multiple laptops and desktops (along with home theater equipment) connected:
Laptops are connected wireless to the DCP3825.
Home Theater (three devices) is connected via Ethernet to the WRT54G2 Router (which is connected via Ethernet to the DPS3825)
Desktop connected to the WRT54G2 via wireless (it’s too far away to connect to the DPC3825).
In essence, I have two separate wireless networks (separate SSID’s) because I can’t figure out how to use the WTR54G2 as a repeater or a wireless access point.
All of the clients can access the Internet; I just can’t manage or “see” the clients of the WRT54G2 when using my network management software. Which means I can’t share folders or media files.
Can anyone help this rookie?
Solved! Go to Solution.
