Second Router Configuration

Hi,
My simple problem is that I am trying to use a Cisco EA6500 router as a WIFI and USB HDD hub connected via ethernet to a Plusnet TG582n and would be grateful for some configuration settings IP/Subnet/Gateway etc.
My phone line (and therefore Plusnet TG582n) is located in a position where I have very poor wifi signal to the main computer and the rest of the house. I have a Cisco EA6500 router which I can connect via a 10 meter ethernet cable to the TG582n which then provides a much better location for the WIFI signal.
Thanks
Jonathan

Re: Second Router Configuration


Try configuring the EA6500 in Bridge mode (Access Point/Switch), otherwise the LAN to LAN option described in this link will also work.

Set the IP address of the EA6500 to use
IP address 192.168.1.253
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
(default gateway 192.168.1.254)

Some TG582's have a USB port and 252/3 are used for the media server. Probably best to use 192.168.1.63 which is out of the default DHCP range ( 64-253 )
