Hi I am trying to connect two machines which I successfully have using one router, the Netgear RP614.
As I have a PS2, XBOX, Gamecube and another PC upstairs I bought another Router RP114 so that i can share my connection in much ease without pulling the network cabe out of the PC and plugging it into one of the consoles just to get it online
How can I use the RP114 router to forward the internet connection to my other machines. Is this possible?
to clarify, you have two PC`s downstairs and 1 PC and assorted consoles with RJ-45 connection capability upstairs? , cant see why you would need/want two routers, hub upstairs with everything into it an it in turn connected to router downstairs
I`m guessing here but it is reasonably likely your router will be able to function as a "switch" alone if as many curently it icorporates this, a switch is merely a slightly more intelligent hub. However if you get it configured and working (no reason why it shouldnt) like Jazzypops suggested method you could conceivably, (if you have geekish tendencies like the most of us) could tinker with its functions... Let us know how you get on and your thoughts on the routers, my local exchange gets upgraded on December 3rd .....
