stretching from the internet connection via a wired ethernet cable


First time poster. I have a netgear R8000 Nighthawk on my 2nd floor. I intend to use an ethernet cable connected to the R8000 and bring it downstairs in my living room. My question is, is - it possible to be able to connect the ethernet cable in the living room to another router and then connect up to 3 devices (apple computer, smart tv, tv) via ethernet cables? I prefer wired connections. I am aware that I can use as the EX7000 netgear router as access point, but other devices may only be connected wirelessly.

Any help would be appreciated


Thank you very much!

  • Satellite P300-133 - how to use the internet connection via BlueTooth


    I finally solve my problem with the synchronization via bluetooth between my P300-133 and my [HTC |] with Windows Mobile 5 - with step by step instructions of Toshiba.

    But I don't know how to use the Internet via BT, I tried many ways, one of them was to create a PAN with P300 as server - correctly connected HTC to P300, but it seams I can share internet with P300 as a gateway. And I want to do the opposite - get internet from my mobile to the computer (while she is away from all the cables). I'm not sure this PAN in the right way...

    The question of the other and less important is to be able to share that connection with your laptop via bluetooth - I guess that this must be done through Pan

    Thanks for any help.

    Wireless router / Internet problems

    I am running Windows Vista Home Edition with Security Essentials.  I can connect to my wireless router, but cannot get internet connectivity via Wireless.  If I connect the cable to the port on the router, I get internet connectivity.  Is there a firewall setting that could cause this problem?


    Your router could be suspicious here, you have successfully updated its firmware as a possible solution? And I would like to
    Update your WiFi drivers on computers. How you are positioned in the router? Are there
    obstacles in the path?

    Actually try updating your driver and disabling the network logon.

    Control Panel - network - write down of the brand and the model of the Wifi - double click top - tab of the driver - write
    version - click the driver update (cannot do something that MS is far behind the pilots of certification). Then
    Right click on the Wifi device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - it will refresh the driver stack.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    Download - SAVE - go where you put it - right click – RUN AS ADMIN.

    You can download several at once however restart after the installation of each of them.

    After watching the system manufacturer, you can check the manufacturer of the device an even newer version. (The
    manufacturer of system become your backup policies).

    Repeat for network (NIC) card and is a good time to get the other updated drivers as Vista like
    updated drivers.

    I would also turn off auto update for the drivers. If the updates Windows suggests a just HIDE as they
    are almost always old, and you can search drivers manually as needed.

    How to disable automatic driver Installation in Windows Vista - drivers (WS.10) .aspx


    Make sure you know the details of connection to your wireless router - SSID and password.

    You lose connection when you do and have to redo your logon.

    Control Panel - Network & Sharing Center - right, click Customize - page set of network locations.
    lower left click on merge or delete network locations - REMOVE all instances of your network (and the
    others you don't use anymore) - REBOOT. Start - Connect To log on to the network.

  • Wireless connection keeps gettting disconnected from the Internet.

    System: New Dell PC.  Internet browser: IE.  Connection: Wireless.  Replaced the Modem;  Router: Netgear new 43... Have two other laptops, a Toshiba and an ASSUS. System: All Windows 7.  Other computers are on the same WiFi problems - not stay connected. This PC has two antennas on the back to connect to the wireless router.

    Browser used: Mozella Firefox (the worst of all a fall); Google Chrome (still drops), now: IE, version 9, works best with email than other browsers and email applications.

    Use: System security Norton, tune up utilities, 2013 and Super Anti-Spyware - ALL have been used continuously without any problems before.

    Problem: as soon as the internet connection disconnects, trouble, launch window is. I select the HOTFIX and then, it reconnects to the internet. He said NO problem with cable. Then, it connects to the internet.  Wireless is full Signal, and the other computer in separate rooms have no pproblem.  I thought that the problem could be the newwork pilot program be corrupt and went to update, BUT got a warning that says to use the APPROPRIATE Microsoft program, or can be a problem. After about 8 hours of searching, I can't FIND driver network form of the Mircorsoft program. the versio curent is 2006.  This computer is a purchase of 2011.   Could be an internet code corrupt, registration, etc., but don't kinow how to solve this problem, if it is the problem?  Maybe different browsers, especially Mozella Firefox changed some settings when the browser has been installed or removed, because it is when the problem started.  MOZELLA Firefox has MANY complaints about this problem.

    I RESTORE the system once, after you get rid of Google Chrome and Firefox, got a new modem, etc, so think the problem MAY be the address or anything that is not recognized by this computer's internet connections? Have no idea.     Help would be appreciated no - no help from Dell (what's new), even thought it was under warrantey, they always try to collect the royalties to talk and then do not know anything on the networks.

    Hi MHBolin,

    Thanks for posting your query in the Microsoft Community.

    Wireless is a breakthrough in broadband technology. It can allow you to access the internet remotely. You have a problem with disconnect the wireless connection. It can be difficult when something that is important to you does not work as expected. It's pretty simple and we're here to help you solve the problem. We work as a team and get this sorted out.

    Please answer the question-

    (1) that you get an error message or error code?

    (2) what other troubleshooting steps have done?

    (3) have you done other changes on the computer before the show?

    I would like more information about the issue.

    Method 1-

    Sometimes, the computer cannot locate the IP address of the router. These problems can be solved by a simple reset of the router.

    See the steps-

    (a) locate a PIN size on the back of the router (that would be your reset button).

    (b) use a sharp object or to press the button to reset for a period of ten seconds and release.

    (c) now, wait for the lights on the router to Flash.

    (d) once the lights are stable try to connect to the internet.

    Method 2-

    You must ensure that there is no interference between the router and the computer.

    The municipalities which are-

    (a) a cordless phone

    (b) thick walls

    (c) large bodies of water like the fish tanks

    (d) other wireless devices.

    (e) an immediate proximity to the router (maintain a distance of 6 feet from the router).

    Method 3-

    I would have you look at the article-

  • To connect to the desktop from the internet view

    Hi all

    I recently installed a view connection Server 5.0 and a manual pool with a single desktop computer in order to access my VMware infrastructure while I'm not at home.

    I redirected the port 443 and 4172 access to connect to the server view and I am able to authenticate but the customer view freezes when I connect to the desktop computer because she needs the internal ip address of the office.

    I don't understand the principle of the use of the customer in view of the internet while each connection to the servers or office uses the internal ip or FQDN address. What did I wrong? What should I do to just plug in my office to view with the client from the internet?

    You must activate the tunnel and the tunnel of PCoIP on the broker for connections (on the admin interface > servers > Connection Broker) and specify the external URL (that you access from internet. for example,, not the host name internal.)

    You must also specify the external IP address. Is that you expose to the outside.

  • Time Capsule has lost the Internet connection and DNS servers

    I use a Time Capsule for Time Machine via Ethernet backups for a couple of years, use it in mode bridge taking its Internet connection directly from my router and connected in turn by Ethernet to my iMac. (Most of the time that I also had wifi off on my iMac and took my Internet directly via the TC Ethernet connection.) A few months ago I upgraded to El Capitan, and the TC has lost its connection Internet (flashing yellow). A few days later I drove back to the Yosemite (for other reasons - Mail had gone mad) to restore a backup of the TC and everything was fine again for a few months. It may or may not be meaningful I plugged TC yesterday to new laptop for my wife to support for the first time, and this laptop is running El Capitan. Since then, the TC has once more lost its Internet connection and DNS settings and is stuck on flashing orange. By clicking on the 'Internet connection' status alert, tells me that the TC is not a valid IP address.

    I have reset the TC, repeatedly and reconfigured but all without success. After consulting the other discussions, I also tried giving the unit an alphanumeric name with no spaces & special characters and change the IPv6 "Link-local" configuration only, but this did not affect the result. And I updated the firmware for good measure. Then I unplugged overnight and carried out a full power cycle the steps recommended here, restart the router, TC and the computer (and performed a factory reset on the TC, while the router & computer was turned off). After doing that, the TC has become undetectable by AirPort Utility, until I have reset reconfigured once again, he and ended up in the same place.

    It may or may not be important to mention the following:

    1 when you set the TC after a reset, I repeatedly selected the option of adding to an existing network instead of create a network, but the installation wizard who ignored each time.

    2. in the installation each time, this point, I shows me the following, which seems to suggest that there is a problem but don't say so explicitly:

    I would be grateful for any advice.

    Weird how everything's going well for a few years and then crazy when you have something will change.

    El Capo adds some network problems more... but something could be fundamentally wrong with the installer.

    Your current configuration, it is apparently bridged but cannot get an IP address. The address 169.254 is give it since it's self generated.

    You need to do a manual installation. It simply means the Assistant is unable for any reason to be your network so start over and do it manually of misfortune (wow, or also possible misery, woah being where you are now!) to go...!

    1. I need to know what modem you are connected. Make and model please?

    2. the most important. What is the main router on your network or a modem?

    I gave the edge to make manual settings a few times. Somehow my instructions for Yosemite/El Capo got lost... I'll try and hunt down them. In the meantime, the basic method remains the same.

    It is not so difficult... You just know where you're going before you start.

  • Can not share the internet connection through Wifi

    Hi all

    I am connected to the internet using an external antenna connected via USB to my mac (WIRELESS n 801.11). I want to share this connection since my mac with other devices, i.e. my iPhone. I use the internet connection through system preferences--> sharing--> sharing internet--> connection on the part of wlan to computers via WIFI and give a name and a password for the wifi settings. When I start the connection icon wifi on the the high watch the arrow menu to the top, but it gives an IP address from 169 auto... etc etc and I can't any traffic to my iPhone.

    I tried to configure IPv4 to use DHCP with a manual (instead of automatic DHCP) address and IP I enter the IP address used in the WiFi, wifi says that it is connected to the name of the internet connection in the shared connection, I opened but once again no traffic to the iPhone. Also tried disabling the firewall, once again nothing.

    OS X El Capitan: share your Internet connection

  • I lose the internet connection randomly but never lose my wireless network connection.

    I use a hp pavilion dv9500 with 64-bit vista sp2 and built in a wireless adapter that will fall randomly my internet wireless connection, but maintains my wireless network connection with an excellent signal strength.

    My (non-permanent) fixed
    I know how to reconnect to the internet, but it forces me to diagnose a repair my connection. It then displays "cannot connect to Server primary dns ("after which it gives "things to try" who never work and a button 'Reset the ip address' that I click. " repair bar will fill up to half way and go to a new screen solution that shows more 'solutions' and a "reset wireless adapter" button which I click. the remedy bar will fill and then display windows can not solve the problem and go for help. I then manually disconnect from the wireless network and my computer will automatically reconnect to the network and to the internet. It takes about five minutes to fix, but it happens so often that it is getting boring. The process will not work if I only to reset the ip address and then disconnect from the network, only to reset the wireless adapter and then disconnect, or just disconnect from the network and reconnect. I have to reset the ip address and the wireless adapter and then disconnect from the network.

    The internet connection will tend to disconnect when I watch a lot of youtube videos, when I download large files like a game on steam, or just just randomly when I use it. I'll use it for a long time and he can't let it go, but sometimes it will go down to ten minutes after I had just reconnected in a drop-down list. It happens randomly without another warning that download time will increase from 2 mb to 50 k in two seconds all about or stop the loading of a youtube video when I look at it.
    I searched everywhere for an answer, but it's as if it were a new problem for all humanity or just im the only person who does not know how to solve this problem, because there are no forums or FAQ not related to my problem. It is not so much a serious problem such as an irritating problem that appears at inconvenient times or when I just want to relax and watch a video. It takes some time to reconnect and even though I know how it would be better if my connection would just stay connected to the internet at any time.
    I have no idea what the problem could be that whenever I have find I never get related problems. all advice or solution would be great.
    I also share this modem with other three commonly used computers: a wired office and two other laptops that the two are connected wirelessly. both other laptops do not have the same problem as mine. My router is a linksys e3000 wireless router.

  • I lost the internet connection after acceptance of your latest updates. How can I cancel the updates?

    I lost the internet connection after acceptance of your latest updates. How can I cancel the updates?


    How do you know that the loss of your internet connection has nothing to do with the Windows updates? You must find the reason for the loss of the connection.

    How do you connect? Is a wired or wireless with a modem or a router? If a router is the router shared with another computer and this computer can connect to the internet? You need to determine if the problem is a fault on your computer or a failure to connect to your internet access provider?

    What error messages are reported?

    Event Viewer reports

    1. normally, when an error occurs on your computer looking in Event Viewer should be your starting point to find a solution. More related system errors are recorded and get an exact copy of the relevant report is important. Unfortunately, is not easy to understand reports and most of the users computer need help with their interpretation. I have to say later interpretation.

    2 Event Viewer includes three main newspapers of Windows. Here's the Application, security, and system. For purposes of troubleshooting system is by far the most important.

    3. to access the system log, select Start, Control Panel, administrative tools, Event Viewer, in the list on the left of the window select Windows and the system logs. Place the cursor on the system, right click and select filter current log. Check the front of the error and click OK and see you only reports errors. Click the Date and time column header to sort. You may need to click a second time to see the last report above.

    4. a tip for posting copies of error reports! Run Event Viewer and double-click the error you want to copy. Select the Details tab and check the box in front of the XML view. Click the copy button to place a copy in the Clipboard and close Event Viewer. Now start your message and paste it into the body of the message. Make sure that it is the first dough right out of the event viewer.

    5. He cautioned against three types of reports, information, and reports errors. In most situations, it is the error reports that offer the best information but sometimes WARNING reports provide useful clues.

    6. all reports have stamps date and hour and when troubleshooting, it is important to focus on the latest reports. Reports of studies from the point when the computer is started, and then check if a similar report appeared in the previous session. If errors do not repeat investigation as to why they happen is wasted effort.

    7. in the individual reports the most important information is the event ID and Source such as these help when looking for help on the internet. The description is just as important and copy the exact text to use as search criteria greatly helps achieve better results when using Google. Not paraphrase descriptions when other people asking for help.

  • Windows Media Player 12 will not play mp4, mp3, wmv files through IIS hosted local site when the PC is disconnected from the Internet

    I have an IIS Web site 6.1 on local 32-bit Windows 7 machine that serves HTML and MP4 videos via Internet Explorer on the local computer.  An internet connection is not necessary because it is all local storage and local accommodations through IIS.  IIS is configured to serve the MP4 videos in the form of downloadable files, don't not streaming somehow.  I have the right MIME type ".mp4" with the installation of "video/mp4" in the IIS server, so I don't think that's the problem.

    When the machine is connected to the internet, by clicking on a video link MP4 in any HTML page served by the local IIS server results in Windows Media Player opening and playing the video in its own window.  However, when the Ethernet cable is unplugged, by clicking on the same results of video link MP4 in Windows Media Player by opening its own window, and then display this error message:

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file.  If the file is on the Internet, connect to the Internet.  If the file is on a removable storage card, insert the storage card.

    It's almost as if Windows Media Player has a bug and since it accesses this media file via a URL, but the machine is not connected to a network, he thinks that this file is unplayable.

    When the Ethernet cable is disconnected, the local IIS server is still all the HTML code and ActiveX content except for media files.  I also tried to access MP3 and WMV files via the IIS server to see if Windows Media Player will open those when the computer is disconnected from the Internet.  These caused also Windows Media Player files display the same error message.

    I tried the VLC (VideoLAN) Player after changing the property file in VLC of WMP for .mp4 files extension.  With VLC installed and the extension changed to VLS property, I can download/open the MP4 video using the link in the web page served by IIS all when they are disconnected from the internet.  The only thing I can't do is get VLC player to open and play the video simply by clicking on the link in Internet Explore web pages served by the local IIS server.

    I would like to make use of Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player with this IIS server that serves the MP4 videos rather than using VLC player.

    Thank you

    Michael Rayman

    I finally found the answer to my problem:

    When they are disconnected from the internet, mysteriously, Windows Media Player 12 requires that you check a checkbox in tools > Options... > zone settings tab player called "Internet connection (ignore the other commands).  Once this box is checked and the settings saved on APPLY, then Windows Media Player 12 will play videos served by the local IIS server on the same machine, while disconnected from the Internet.
