I have an ADSL modem from my ISP. I have another Tenda router that is connected to the ADSL modem via twisted pair cable. I connect to the internet using Wifi from the Tenda router. The ip address of ADSL modem is and Tenda router's address is The devices connected directly to the ADSL modem have ip's in the range of -, while the devices connected to the Tenda router have ip's to

So, how can I connect (play game over LAN) to the device connected directly to the ADSL modem (192.168.1.xx), from my computer(192.168.0.xx) that is connected to the Tenda router?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

  • If you can ping the computers from both ends, you should be fine. What operating system are you running and what game are you planning to play? – Georgette Taala Apr 16 '15 at 5:51
  • I can get the ADSL modem's webpage if I type in my browser but I don't see any computers connected directly to the modem in the network tab, nor in the C&C Generals game lobby. I am running win7 sp1 64bit – Ahtsham Apr 16 '15 at 5:57

    In such setup, I usually make wifi router act as a dumb switch/access point. It's much easier and can be made on most devices. To achieve this, set your wifi router's LAN ip-address to be in subnet, disable DHCP and connect it to your modem via LAN, not WAN port. – at8eqeq3 Apr 16 '15 at 7:05
  • @at8eqeq3 how do I set router's ip address? What is subnet? I get that I have to plug the cable into one of the yellow ports. Will that automatically change the router's ip? I can disable DHCP. – Ahtsham Apr 16 '15 at 8:00
  • @at8eqeq3 I did as you said and...it works. Thanks a lot! – Ahtsham Apr 16 '15 at 8:23
