For some reason, our government ISP filters our ADSL connections greatly when using routers, while if we connect directly our computers to the ADSL modem we get the speed we pay for.
So, i am using windows 7's internet connection sharing and virtual wifi adapter on an old laptop to create a virtual wireless ssid , but i want to try to give the router internet access by connecting the laptop's ethernet port to the router's wan port, but i don't get internet to the router.
my router has "wireless router mode" , " repeater mode" and "access point mode"
If i got you consided, here's a summary ADSL modem:---USB CABLE---LAPTOP LAPTOP:----virtual wifi driver----virtual ssid (phones have internet)
I want to delete that virtual ssid and instead use the router. Remember i can't connect the router directly to the adsl modem because i would get filtered.
I can change the shared connection from the wifi adapter to the ethernet adapter, but i don't get internet in the router. Do i need to change its mode? Or configure an ip address manually in the router? ICS ip addresses are 102.168.137.x
My router is: asus rt-n66u. Thanks
