I am looking for help with setting up my Home network. I am using a ZOOM DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem/Router with Wireless-N Model 5350, and a LINKSYS WRT54G, V5.0 with DD-WRT. IF you could give me a detailed tutorial that would be nice.

My zoom router is currently The DHCP server and the LAN Network, and the linksys router has DHCP disabled and is only the WIFI network with some LAN connections, Ive hear of using Lan ports Instead of WLAN but i get connection issues when i do..

 

If you need more info just ask i hope you can help.

 The problems i am having are connection issues and sometimes i get slow connection and i wanna make sure my settings are correct bcause i dont know what it is i am doing....

Is there any reason you want to also use the Linksys wireless router when the Zoom already has Wireless N capabilities? The linksys only has 802.11g while the zoom has 802.11n. I think adding two routers to the mix is part of the problem.

Take a look through this article about using a router as an access point and see if you can determine your issue.

 

I'd check the IP settings on the Linksys router and machines that connect through it.

@JohnC_21 the zoom router I have bad signal drops and disconnects and it can't reach my basement as the linksys one can, plus the zoom router isn't very customizable. It's just my preference.
@kilroy I'll check that out when I can thanks:)

Do you have the Linksys set as a wireless repeater or bridged repeater? 


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
