Greetings!

 

 

 

 

Is it possible to connect from a 4G router to a regular router with a RJ45 and get a connection that way?

 

The 4G router is a Huawei B593 with and the regular router is a Sweex LW150 ( Wireless )

 

The reason I wonder is that the 4G router not is good enough ( signalstrength ) and I wanna have a good 

WiFi connection in the whole house.

 

 

Regards

Theoretically, no problem... it depends on hardware quality.

 

I find 6 of one and half a dozen of the other... Let us know how your hardware performs.

A network generalization would be enough for me... like "yeah it works great" or "don't got there, nightmare".

 

Just for future reference.

I think it will work as a charm it's 60/60 Mbits 4G guess it's capped too since 4G can

be faster then so.

 

I'll update the topic in a few days since I'm on a little vacation.

You understand how to correctly connect the two routers and configure them? 

 

You assign the 2nd router a static lan ip in the subnet of the 4g lan.

You connect the 2nd router by lan port to the 4G routers lan port

You disable the 2nd routers dhcp server so only the 4g is providing ip to the lan

Greetings!

 

 

The connection did work very well :)

 

 

is the 4g router the "modem" (or hotspot maybe?) as well?

 

The 4G Modem is the one I wanna connect from to a 150 Mbps router with WiFi

 

You understand how to correctly connect the two routers and configure them? 

 

You assign the 2nd router a static lan ip in the subnet of the 4g lan.

You connect the 2nd router by lan port to the 4G routers lan port

You disable the 2nd routers dhcp server so only the 4g is providing ip to the lan

 

That was over my knowledge :/ I did recive a IP from my 150 Mbps router ( wifi ) the 4G router gave me another ip

Both routers gave me different ip's over wifi wich I got no problems with. Guess it's just some kind of configuration problem is what

that configuration will be  :mellow:

 

Can someone tell me how to recive the same ip from both routers over wifi will make me very happy. 

I'm not a newbie but not a pro either ;)

 

Regards

" I did recive a IP from my 150 Mbps router ( wifi ) the 4G router gave me another ip"

 

That is because you didn't do this: "You disable the 2nd routers dhcp server so only the 4g is providing ip to the lan"

Perhaps this will help
