Hi. Its nice of you to take the time to help. Thank you.
I was in the industry since 1976. Had 2 minor strokes 1999 and that messed things up, seems for good. Still learning through.
So, all help is very much appreciated, thank you.
So here we go, its a simple setup....
ISP:- Sky Braodband
ISP Wireless modem(RJ11) / Router (4 port RJ45)
Router/SwitchBox Fully Managed:- Pluscom 10/100/1000gb (8Port RJ45)
(This is said by magazine reviews to be the fastest available for home/small business networks. very nice and runs cold).
Wireless Modem/Router (temporary replacement for Linksys Compact wrt54gc which now needs a new power supply, which I can't find any where)
Model:- WRT300N Wireless-N Broadband Router Vs.2.0
Mac :- 001839902EDE
Networked: 3 Desktops
Mask/Dns are same on others. All independently able to log-on/off.
Linksys and 3 computers connect with RJ45 cables to Router/Switch Box.
There is a loop back cable (RJ45) from router to the wireless router.
This is used to use HTTP protocol for admin rights etc. Internet connection not needed for this.
1 Wireless Laptop. (Dell 1420)
This connects up to private Network Via own internal wireless to Linksys wireless modem.
All work great for, you guessed it, 'gaming' when the family turn up.
And they turn up a lot ;o)
The ISPs wireless is not connected via RJ45 and is located somewhere else.
This too can be accessed by anyone including desktops via their own internal wireless cards.
Computers are not accessible by anyone else through the network or wireless.
I've kept that separate.
However, the iPronto can connect to the Linksys modem on 'open' not 'WEP'.
I want to be able to get the ISP wireless linked to the network somehow and active, permanently logged on. Then only log-on to the network via Linksys modem to access iPronto and have it work on its own Internet (browser).
Also, it would be nice to have users log-on to the network and access the Internet by just running their browser and not have to log-on the ISP.
If the ISP is always active on the network and my linksys is connected to the network, can iPronto log-on to linksys modem to access the internet?
Can it be done? and if so how?
All the best.
