I am trying to set up a surplus router as a NAS and torrent appliance, to integrate into an existing network. The setup will use two routers, one to provide network and internet to everyone, the other will use TomatoUSB and will be dedicated to torrenting. [more inside]

I'm stumped by what on the face of it should be a pretty simple problem with a ADSL router (Thomson ST585 v6.) The connection is flawless when I plug into the router with an ethernet cable, but a wifi connection will drop out if I move further than a metre away from the router. This is true regardless of where I place the router in the house. I'm thinking a physical fault in the device. Anyone have a second guess?

Modem/Router issues: why does our internet always cut out on one computer on the network, resulting in having to constantly plug/unplug the router to get it working again? [more inside]

I just wiped Vista from my Dell e521 and installed XP pro. Internet connection came right up. Unplugged the ethernet cable from the e521, plugged it into a c521 and did the exact same thing. Internet connection doesn't work. What could be wrong? [more inside]

I'm extending an wired ethernet LAN to a nearby house. I'm planning to connect a 50m patch cable to the existing bridge router, run it through an existing underground pipe to the other house where it would meet a switch and serve internet via two shorter patch cables (25m?) to two laptops in that house. Can anyone see a problem with this setup? [more inside]

How can I transmit a home network connection 600 feet across a forested piece of property? We have WildBlue with a Linksys router, and I'd like to access it from our guest cottage. I'm doubting we can run an Ethernet cable that far.

I just had (non-DSL, non-cable) internet access installed in my apartment through a local provider that has a T3 installed in my building. After install, I was getting 6MB/sec downloads, but the installer claimed I should be getting up to 35MB/sec, but my consumer-grade Linksys DSL router was unable to process that amount of throughput. 1. True? 2. Recommend a better router? [more inside]

How can I troubleshoot my Mac's ADSL connection? A few weeks ago my download speed suddenly dropped to about 4kilobits/sec after I tried to set up a firewall. I then turned off the firewall, but the speed hasn't returned. I'm running Mac OSX 10.3.4 on an eMac with 1GHz processor and 1GB RAM (confirmed intact by profiler) on a simple ADSL router (YahooBB, the leader in Japan) with an ethernet hub. Interestingly, upload is fine at 500 kbps, and my older slot-loading iMac 350MHz is zooming along fine on the same connection at 1150kbps download speed. TCP/IP settings are simple, DHCP auto-assigns the IP.

After trying hard to solve this
problem, I gave up, and went out and bought another wireless adaptor for my 2nd PC. I now have both PCs connected to the wireless router, but transfer speeds between the two are a lot slower. Is it possible for me to use an ethernet connection for transferring stuff between these two PCs, and the separate wireless connections for everything else?
