Wireless Setup - two routers
Posted on 2013-06-08
I have a cable modem at home attached to a wireless router. I live in an old house with thick stone walls - the connection upstairs is not the best.
I have a desktop upstairts which I connect via Power Lan. I would like to add a separate wireless router so I can have a good wifi connection upstairs.
I have purchased a new TP Link router - slightly different model to what I have already and I would like to connect it to my Power Lan upstairs. But it is not working. Firstly, it asked me a question about cloning the MAC address - I said no... is this correct?
Also... I suspect that there is an ip address conflict on the next work with two wifi routers on the network. Previously all computers are on dynamic ip addresses...
Any thoughts? Can you please provide some guidance on (a) should I clone the MAC address and (b) how should I do the Ip addressing.
