Need help setting up LAN network.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on doing a LAN party at my house tonight but I have a problem: The router is too far from the room to use cables. So I planned a little layout of how I am currently trying to set it up



I want to use my laptop as an access point for the wired router, where 3 PC are going to be connected plus the laptop.

All 3 computers are using Win7 and the laptop WinXP.

Right now the wireless-wired bridge is my biggest problem. how should I set up the laptop's connection and the 2nd router?

Thanks in advance.

is it wireless N? I highly recommend a long cat5/6 from the router and a switch for a lan party. have at least 2 a month now, and wired all the way. you could always use the long cat5/6 from the modem, and move the router closer to the pcs

That's my problem: I don't have a long cable. The modem is 35-feet away and my longest cable is about 6-feet long.

go to any store that sells pc stuff. it'll save you a lot of headache. set up longer cable from modem to wifi router, and wifi router to router, or just get a long coaxial cable, and move the modem smile.gif

Well, here comes another problem: I live on a farm, which is 2h from any city with a car...and I don't have a car.

Anyway, I found something interesting in my basement. It's not a LAN cable but soon will.

I finally made a makeshift Cat6 cable, tested it and it works. My only gripe is that the 2nd router still doesn't give out the internet. Anyone have a clue how to setup an old Dlink DI-604 for that?
