Using two or more routers to extend the network

There are many methods to extend your network both Wired Network and Wireless Network. I would like to describe Two Methods in this blog.

  • Extending using Relay method
    1. Using DHCP Relay [Part 2]

    2. Using DNS Relay [Part 3]
      (http://etisalatsupport.blogspot.com/2012/08/extending-wire-and-wireless-network_9962.html)

A) Extending using Dynamic IP method

Logic

1) Router 1 is having internet throught ONT and you want to extend your wire and wireless connection.
2) Router 2 should be also broadband router. Router 2 will receive Dynamic IP and it will distribute the internet to its network using NAT.
3) You will manually assign the different network address in Router 2 or split the main network address range in Router 1 and Router 2
4) Let's do the case study with examples

Steps

a) Connect Router 1 and ONT using PPPoE method (default broadband connection used to provide internet connection)
b) Connect WAN or Internet Port of Router 2 to the LAN port of Router 1

 

c) Now configure Router 2. 

1) Here is the example 1 with Aztech 605 router as Router 2
  • Login to the router
    • Connect your PC to the Aztech router
    • Open internet explorer, type http://192.168.1.1
    • User admin as user and admin as password (or without password)


  • Setup Internet/WAN interface
    • Go to Advanced > WAN > New Connection
    • Select Ethernet in Connection Interface, give any name in Name field
    • Select NAT option (firewall is optional), select DHCP on dropdown menu labeled as Type 
    • Click Apply then click Save Settings
  • Setup LAN Interface
    • Go to Basic > LAN Configuration
    • Type the local IP Address for your router as you wish
    • Put the Default Gateway same as Router IP Address
    • Give Host name
    • Enable DHCP Server option
    • Define starting and ending IP Range
    • Then click Apply > Save Settings
  • Wifi Setup
    • You can mange wifi name and security as per your requirement from Wireless Section.
2) Here is the example 2 with Dlink router as Router 2

a) WAN Setting
  • Login to Dlink router at http://192.168.1.1 using default username admin and password admin

  • Go to Setup link > Internet link then select Manual Internet Connection Setup
  • Apply the following settings as shown in figure
    • Select Dynamic IP
    • Give Hostname
    • Clear any value on DNS Server, Secondary DNS Server, MAC address
    • Give MTU value <1500
    • Click Save Settings

B) LAN Setting

  • Go to Setup > Network Setting 
  • Apply the setting as shown in figure below
    • Enable DHCP Server option
    • Define IP Range for local network, please put the same range IP for the router itself also
    • Save your settings
C) Wifi Setup

You can manage your wifi name and password and wifi network settings on Wireless Network option.
