I am trying something different...can someone help?
Here is what I did:
I have my internet connection from my ISP coming into the basement of my 3 level home. I have run that feed into a Lynksys 5 port Workgroup8p Switch into the hole marked internet. From there, I run one cable into the desktop in the basement and another into a NetGear XE102G Ethernet Extender Kit. One of these units is plugged into the wall in the basement (with a feed from the Switch) and the other is up on the 3rd level. Both of these units light up with 3 green lites like they are suppose to when all is normal. Then, I have plugged into the EXtender on the 3rd level, a WRT300N Linksys BRoadband router. Finally, I have also setup the desktop in the basement with a new Wireless-N Linksys adapter.
The problem I am having is that the network does not recognize the WRT300N. EVerything else seems okay (green lites everywhere) but I was told that I need the wireless N adapter, but since it cant find the new router, I have to have a feed from the switch into the desktop in the basement. I was told I wasn't going to need to do that.
Can someone help please??!
