Network Troubles

Well it turns out that Mrs. Diesel didn't think I was that funny. Oh well go vote anyway.

The other day I got 2 Linksys routers in the mail. I only needed one, but if you have 2 why not use them?

Oh by the way if you don't understand computer networking, then reading this would be like wasting precious minutes of your life.

Anyway, I decided to hook up these two routers to my house network, which now looks like this:

If anyone else has ever set up a network like this, you would know how hard it is to get 3 routers to get along and let the devices connected to the last one still get internet. Plus the server on the second one is a public server, so I have to mantain security at the same time as allowing the 2 routers access to the internet.

Humph....

Someone told me something really confusing today, and I was going to share it here. But now I forgot what it was. Oh well.

Thanks for making our house a giant network experiment. But as long as you don't screw up my internet connection I guess I don't mind.

This is all in your HOUSE?

The competition was fierce this week, so don't feel bad. There were well over 100 captions.

NICE POST ABOUT THE THREE ROUTERS! I JUST CONNECTED THREE WIRELESS ROUTERS. ONE ROUTER IS THE MAIN ONE AND THE OTHER TWO ARE HOOKED INTO MY SLM2024 SMART SWITCH HUB. I HAVE THE WHOLE HOUSE WIRED IN EVERY ROOM WITH CAT6 WIRE AND TWO LYNKSYS ROUTERS THAT ARE HOOKED INTO THE HUB AND ONE ROUTER AS A MAIN THAT GOES TO THE UPLINK PORT TO THE HUB WHAT A SWEET SET UP.
THE HUB AND MAIN ROUTER DOWN STAIRS AND ONE ROUTER IN THE LIVING ROOM AND ONE IN THE MASTER BED ROOM. ALL WORKS GREAT! SWEET!
