Hi all...first post, but I don't think this is a daft question....
Basically, I use the DG834G as my ADSL modem and wireless router. It's
under the stairs, so has no hard connections to it, it's just used for
wireless through the 2 laptops in the house.
Now I also have a Tivo upstairs, which was connected via a Linksys
WET11, which worked perfectly. Now I've also got a PC upstairs, which
is a Dell small-form factor, so I can't use a PCI wireless card.
Becuase of this, I bought a WRT54G to use as an 'extention' to the
Netgear; I'm being vague here as I'm not completely sure of the correct
terminology, but the theory was that I would hard-connect TiVo and the
PC into the WRT54G, and that would connect via wireless to the DG834,
and then out to the www.
However, this is just not happening! I've tried all sorts of config
variations (I'm by no means a wireless expert, but I'm not a dummy
either), but I still can't get it to work. In fact, when the Linksys
is plugged in, it kills the NetGear wireless network.
I'm I asking the impossible, will these never talk to each other, or is
it just a setting I need to tweak? It's driving me mad, and I need to
get it fixed tomorrow, as the PC is being set up so my wife can use
here new iPOD (Xmas pressy!)
