wonder if one of you IT experts can help with this:
I'm trying to connect a Singnet broadband modem to another wireless router. Is it psosible?
The modem is a 2-wires brand and already comes with its own onboard router (ie it has four ports to connect additional stuffs). it also has wireless capability on its own.
Now, before you start asking why in the world I'd want to do that, I'll explain it at the bottom.
So, now the question is, can I just connect a ethernet wire from one of the 4 ports behind the bb modem (say port 1) direct into the "Internet" socket in my wireless router? I understand that I may have to manually configure one or the other to use an IP other than the usual 192.168.1.1 or else there may be some clashes.
Anyway, the reason whY I want to try to do this is because my BB modem's wireless range is very short. I"m planning to get a long range wireless router to try to increase the range. I need maybe 100-200 feet at least of range.
As a side question, anyone has recommendations on what is the longest range wireless router avialable? I have been recommended this Belkin Pre-N router - anyone has any experience with this?
