I need to transform my router to a switch with wireless or get through NAT

So Basicly my internet provider sents me 15 - 20 ping 25 down /10 up internet, but my DLink DIR-645's NAT inflicts with my providers NAT and messes up my connection. Sometimes i run 25 - 30 ping 22 down/12 up, and sometimes (ex. right now!) I run 50 ping 2 down/0,30 up..

I can use my router as a switch and everything works perfectly, but it stops sending wireless out.. And i need that, because my mom uses wireless, and i use it on my iPad..

Or, i have to turn off the NAT on the router.. Or at least make it not inflict with my provider!

I've tried many things, and the support guy has tried to help me over the phone.. Any ideas?
Thanks!

  1. DSL or cable modem? What model modem? I assume that your connection is ISP --> modem --> DIR-645 --> computers wired and wireless.

    Looking into the DIR-645 configuration pages, what is your WAN address and your LAN address -- you do not want them the same of you have a double NAT issue.

    I'm really a noob.. Sorry.. But what is a DSL and a Cable modem?

    I can't find the WAN address, but my lan is 192.168.50.90..
    Connection Type is Static IP, if it helps
    And Default Gateway is 192.168.50.252
  3. You need some sort of modem that has a cable that plugs into the WAN port of the DIR-645, trace that cable back and see what device it connects to and give me the name and model number of the device.

    Depending on what modem you have, your ultimate goal will be to either (a) set the router up as dynamic, or (2) if the modem is actually a gateway (combo modem router) to turn the DIR-645 into an access point.

    Both are easy, just depends what gear you have.
  4. This is right before the router, and before this, there is an antenna on the roof

    That is the power adapter to the antenna, which I'm guessing looks like THIS or THIS.

    You basically have something that schematically looks like THIS down the page under "View Point to Point Wireless Installation Diagram Below"

    Where does the cable from the roof plug into your router, the WAN port or a LAN port?

    Into the WAN port..
    But we are senting the router in for repair tomorrow, and set up the old router, which runs more stable, even though it's broken..

    Sounds like a reasonable plan, let me know if the repaired router doesn't fix the issue.

    Okay, so my mom got us a new router (same model) and in the first 8 hours, no problems at all.. I think the router was broken :)
  10. I go through one every other year, but really work them hard. :D

    Haha!

    I've had 1 internet loss and 3 big lag spikes today.. :(
  12. "Haha!

    That is unfortunately to be expected with wireless, interference is quite common. During gaming or video streaming? Do you have a budget to make all that stuff stop?

    Lagspikes doing Gaming and loss doing streaming..
    I've had 3 losses and 5 spikes now.. I'm pissed! But hey.. I'm paying 10 $ for 25/10 :P
  14. With a pair of Zyxel PLA5205kit powerline adapters you will not see any more lag or Internet loss, so start saving.

    Wireless will never work any better than now for that kind of high bandwidth use.

    How does that work?
  16. Powerline adapters use the electrical circuits in your home to transmit network data, the adapters have filters that make the AC current irrelevant. Initially, they were pretty worthless IMO, but now the speeds are becoming very useful. HERE is a guide to current adapters. I've been testing the Zyxel PLA5205kit and it is very impressive. Hight speed, low latency and not affected by all the things that interfere with wireless.
