I'm new to this forum and am desperately in need of help so am hoping someone here might know what I need to do.
I have a Belkin router in my home and have just bought an Edimax extender to reach further. I don't know much about networks but I do know that all I have to do to install it is connect it to the ethernet on my laptop - configure the admin page to search for my router etc etc and then all should be fine HOWEVER...
The Edimax extender has exactly the same IP address as my router so when I enter the IP address into the browser to configure the extender admin page, it just goes to my router admin page. If I turn off my wireless network I can enter the extender admin but I then need to turn the wireless network back on for the extender to find the router at which point the admin page reverts back to the Belkin router.
With this IP address issue I'm at a loss and really need wireless to do my job.
I hope that all makes sense, please could someone help!!!!
lets say the default ip addresses for the 2 devices is 192.168.1.1
connect one device first with an ethernet cable then change the ip address to 192.168.1.2, do all your configurations on that device and then connect to the other device with the 192.168.1.1 and also do all your configurations and everything should be ok.
u cant run 2or more devices on a network with the same ip address u will definitrly be having ip conflict issues.
so one device must be 192.168.1.1 while the other should be 192.168.1.2 and in that other for any other devices u might be having.
