  15. I want to change the IP address of my wireless network. My gateway is currently 192.168.1.1. MY internet provider suggested me to change it to 192.168.5.1. I have DSL connection and they said that my modem is also working like a modem. How can I change the IP address of my router. I have Linksys BEFW11S4.

  16. First let me know where is the second device connected to the first one ? The cable coming out from the first is connected to the second on which port Internet or Ethernet ? If it is connected to the Internet port on the second one then the IP address of second device must be changed. connect the computer to the second one and check the IP address of the second router.
    If the cable is connected to Ethernet port then the DHCP on your router must be turned OFF. In this case you will need to reset and reconfigure it.

    1. Hi Jim !
      It is working now.
      I changed the IP address of my second gateway to 192.168.2.1. The first one is working with 192.168.1.1. My wireless network is also secured.
      Thanks for your help.
      The guide is very easy.
