Connect Wireless modem with Wireless Router

by Scorpion0473 / May 10, 2012 8:02 PM PDT

Hi,
I have a Belkin N wireless router, which I would like to connect to a wireless cable modem for networking my home as the wireless cable modem(netgear) is in a different place. How do I do it?
Regards,
Scorpy

May or may not be possible.

While some routers can be a client, your post is incomplete. So let's complete it.

Go get a WiFi BRIDGE and then use that to one of the LAN ports of this Belkin N WiFi router and then GOOGLE THIS!!! -> How to use a router as a WAP.

That works. I've done this!

Wireless modem to wireless router
by Scorpion0473 / May 11, 2012 6:46 PM PDT

Ok...I have a wireless cable modem and I can connect and browse internet without any issues. I have a wireless router to which I wanted to connect the modem wirelessly as I want to connect to another computer which does not have a wireless capability.
I am looking at :
CABLE MODEM (Wireless) ------>ROUTER (Wireless "N") -------> COMPUTER (needed)

Thanks heaps for looking into this.

I still wonder what the model number is for the Belkin.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / May 12, 2012 5:15 AM PDT

If I can't find the model number, I can't look into this.

Belkin, no client or bridge. Price of Coke in Aus.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / May 13, 2012 1:09 AM PDT
In reply to: duh!!

While I've been many places, Aus is definitely on my list. Except I hear Snickers and a Coke can set you back a few more dollars there.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
