2 router on 1 network - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Sounds kinda like the network in my house.
Net > Modem > router1 > 5 port switch > wireless router
If something is plugged into the wireless router then those devices cannot "view" anything on the otherside of the LAN. I just have the wireless router as a wireless point though so its ok, I dont have anything plugged into it but the WAN.

Just use the lan ports on your wireless router to lump everyone into the same subnet..
(IE, move the cable from WAN to LAN, making sure the wireless router doesn't have a conflicting IP and DHCP is disabled).

I might fiddle with that tonight. I would care more about it if I was using any LAN ports on the wireless but im not. I have it setup just for the sake of wireless access in the house for the laptops, 360 and Android phones.
Oh and where I put 5 port switch, thats actually a 16 port now. Debating switching back because the 5 port was gigabit and the 16 port is just 10/100.

I assume Shaw Communications is a cable provider?

Some cable company systems won't lease out an IP address to a different MAC address than the one that's been stored on their server. I know Charter(here in the US) works that way in my area. Usually this can be cleared by calling tech support or you can try my suggestions if you want. If what I'm saying holds true to your case then you have two options.

Option 1
I usually just unplug my modem first wait about 30 seconds to about a minute, plug it back in and let it sync up etc. and then hook it up to the new router (Modem -> TEW 639GR WAN port -> your computers). Sometimes you have to disconnect your modem for a good 5 minutes for the Cable co. end to realize you've disconnected. After that check to see if you get an IP address from the modem on the new router.

Option 2
If you know how or if the Trendnet router has the option to "spoof" the MAC address of your D-Link basically type in the MAC address of the D-Link in the spoof menu and check to see if the Trendnet then receives an IP Address.

When you spoof it your basically making the modem think that it's still connected to the D-Link.

Hope this helps thumb.gif

Thank you so much. Fixed my problem to no ends (lol wut?). Used option 1. Just disconnected the modem. Apart from that, I have come to the conclusion that going on a router behind a router does slow down traffic. Haven't used it enough to see the other perks yet.
