PostPosted: Wed Apr 11, 2007 5:52 pm    Post subject: Adding wireless network behind RTP300 Reply with quote Back to top

I have just purchaed a TrendNet TEW-432BRP 802.11g wireless router, and I would like to place it behind my Vonage RTP300 router, since I'm only adding two computers with wireless capability and I don't see any reason to muck with the rest of my wired connections.

Problem is, how do I set this up? This is a new area for me.

The directions that came with the wireless router states that I need to set up the router by connecting to http://192.168.1.1 ... which doesn't connect. Apparently I can't find this address on my network.

The RTP300 is set up for 192.168.15.100-106, with the RTP300 itself at 192.168.15.1. FWIW my cable modem's interface (Motorola SB5100) is 192.168.100.1.

So I go to ping my addresses and I find a connection at 192.168.15.100, since there's only one other device on the network and that's this computer here, hardwired to 192.168.15.105, I'm quite certain this is my wireless router.

But, http://192.168.15.100 brings up zilch.

So, what do I need to do from here? Smile

Depends on whether you want your wireless devices connected to the same network as your RTP300 (in other words, if you want to be able to share files, for example, between RTP300 wired clients and wireless clients on the new TrendNet.

If you want one network, do the following:

1. Plug the TrendNet into power - nothing else.
2. Plug a single computer into the TrendNet.
3. Configure the wireless on the TrendNet the way you want it (WPA, security, etc).
4. Log in to the TrendNet and turn OFF its DHCP server. Unplug the computer from the TrendNet and restart the TrendNet.
5. Plug a patch cable from any of the LAN ports on the RTP300 to any of the LAN ports (NOT the WAN port!) on the TrendNet.

Congratulations - you have now turned your wireless ROUTER into a wireless ACCESS POINT.

In step 4 don't forget to give the trendnet a lan address in 192.168.15 (one that's not in use elsewhere of course)

If you skipped mjstraw's excellent advice (setting a local address of 192.168.15.x for the TrendNet), then you won't be able to log into the TrendNet to do any configuration work later. Your TrendNet will still work fine as an access point, you just won't be able to configure it.

The default for the RTP300, if I recall, is to hand out addresses starting with 192.168.15.100 and up to 192.168.15.150 or so. You may want to set the TrendNet's local IP address to something like 192.168.15.200 (so the RTP300 will never, ever hand out the same IP address to another client on the network). That way, from any computer on the LAN (wired or wireless), you can get into the TrendNet's configuration pages by using 192.168.15.200.

Of course, if you don't feel you'll ever have to configure the TrendNet, then having its configuration IP address set up as something unreachable is actually a (minor) security feature.

It's set to 192.168.15.100, there's only seven IP addresses open, al lthe IPs tied to a specific computer.
