netgear router DG834G and Orange
Posted on 2008-06-11
My boss has Orange broadband in France his partner cannot get wireless basically I assume this is becasue they did not press the one button to get frequency on orange router before connecting with wep key on first time connection.
Anyway this is how each ireless device is required to connect first time entering key so it retains correct frequency.
Problem is that he has aproperty with two outside rented building who want to use wireless broad band from main building.
Got me so far. Well they would need access to live box router to press one button prior to connecting first time having given wep key.
So I am flying to France (from UK) to set up router and do a few odd jobs and take pics for website.
So thats the story. My idea is to bin live box add netgear router. I assume all I need is to add username and password for ISP on router turn on wireless add wep encryption and all can then connect (distance bteween buidlings about 15 foot.
However will this router work with Orange and do I add DNS etc or does this get automatically. Encapulation is this default or soemthing else.
If anyone has tried this then please let me know the french and UK connections will obviously be no diiferent to set up it is Orange and that is that.
Or can I add a wirless switch to live box and if so what device and what settings would this require. I though at wireless switch and leave dhcp and dns on live box and turn off dhcp and dns on switch and turn on wirless on switch and off on live box.
I do not want to hard wire this setup as it involves going through concrete paths etc.
