      Can I connect Belkin router 2 Sky Sagem 2 improve net performance + Wireless coverage

      Hi can somone please help me with this? The performance of the Wirless network provided by my Sky sagem router has come to be somewhat of a nightmare.. I have a Belkin wirelss router that I would like to add to my home network to provide better coverage and increase performance. Is this possible and if so what are the configuration settings for each of these routers to allow it to work???

      Is your Belkin an ADSL modem router, or a plain router only device. The best way to connect it depends on the type you have.

      Re: Can I connect Belkin router 2 Sky Sagem 2 improve net performance + Wireless cove

      There are two ways you can do it, connect the Belkin direct to the phone line and use it instead of the Sky router. This involves obtaining your username and password from the Sky router and putting them into the Belkin together with the other settings you reqire. This is against the T & Cs, but many do it..
      The second involves piggy backing the Belkin on to the Sky router. To do this go into the Belkin settings and change its IP address to 192.168.0.254. Disable Use as DHCP server. Remember to save the changes. Now go into the Sky router settings and disable the wireless access point. You can try re-enabling this later if you want to try it, but many find it does not work too well, it depends on where your second router is situated. Connect one of the ports on the Sky router to one of the ethernet ports on the Belkin router, do not use the internet port port. As you are using the wireless on the Belkin, you must set up the security on it.
