Livebox / Belkin / home network
Posted on 2011-09-07
Currently in France and dealing with their Orange company to get internet access. The internet access point downstairs feeds into the "LiveBox" which acts as a wireless router as well.
To get the internet signal upstairs to the TV you have to plug in a "LivePlug" down stairs and a matching "Liveplug" upstairs - an ethernet cable comes out of that 2nd liveplug and into the TV decoder.
Now, I want to take that ethernet cable from the upstairs liveplug, put it into the modem port of the 4-port router Belkin that I have in order to connect the TV decoder from one of the hubs, and connect the wireless of a laptop upstairs.
I now have that set up but .... I can connect to the Bellkin with the laptop wireless, but can not seem to get the TV decoder working. The connection is fine, but the fact of having to pass through the belkin is messing this up.
Suggestions greatly appreciated - I know next to nothing about networks.
PS I have belkin router model number f5d8236
