Hi there guys, got a router to increase stability on my network.

Using the standard sky router (Sagem F@st 2504) as a modem, I want to turn its wifi off and have the TP link handle the connections but absolutely no idea where to start.

I've set it up so i have internet coming through the tp link via wired connection to this PC but dont know where to go from here to make the wifi work.

 

If someone could offer some kind of help after asking for more information id be very grateful. 

 

Thanks, Scot Mclaren

Sorry Cavedweller, I dont understand what DHCP is, im not too versed in networking terms.

 

Jim- Thanks very much for the link, ive setup both bands now and changed passwords, also turned off wifi from my old router so its really only a passthrough.

Is there anything else i need to do to the old router to make it as efficient as possible?

Do you have internet access by the new router, at all?

New router handles all wifi now, the ethernet from the pc also goes to it and the internet is working on all devices-

including (lol) the range extender in the garden 50m away since the signal from the new router extends that far now

Very important, you have to secure your wireless network (Wireless Security - WPA2/AES) and access router setup (System Tools->Passwordl). That's all.
