Which router's wireless\wifi is better?
« on: October 20, 2013, 04:48:57 PM »

Hi,

I have 2 computers. One is directly connected to Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway with wire and I have another computer connected wireless to Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway.

I am using Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway as my modem and router right now and it works fine on computer directly connected to Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway with wire but I am getting very low/poor signal strength on my wireless computer due to which I am looking to install DLink DIR-625 as my router but I have one question and a problem.

Question: Whose wireless\wifi is better?

Concern: How can I connect Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway to DLink DIR-625. The reason I am asking this because when I connect Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway with DLink DIR-625 and connect my computer with wire to DIR-625  then I donít get any Internet.(I get Internet when I connect my computer with wire with Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 and I know there is nothing wrong with DLink DIR-625)

You could try this if you want to keep your ISP modems as the main host router:
Turning a router into an AP.

  • If this modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ.

Thank you very much for your response.

I don't want to keep Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway as my router. I want to make dlink my main router.

You'll need to either bridge the Cisco modem if it can be bridged or use it's DMZ and put the IP address the 625 gets from the modem into the DMZ. Then connect everything to the 625 router...should work well for you...
