DC++ local LAN sharing using router

September 5, 2011 at 09:20:30
Specs: Windows 7
Hi, i am trying to use ApexDC++ using a wifi router for local LAN sharing. The problem is that when i connect the LAN cable on LAN port of the router i am able to connect to local HUB but at the same time unable to connect to internet. And when i connect the LAN cable on internet port of the router i get connected to the internet but unable to connect to local HUB for LAN sharing.

I have tried port forwarding also but of no use. The ip details provided for local LAN sharing is,

LAN IP - 192.168.100.3 - 192.168.100.xxx
Subnet mask - 255.255.255.000
Default gateway - 192.168.100.1

This is the configuration on the LAN port of my wifi router. Where as when i connect the LAN cable on the internet port of router, it takes the ip automatically from server (DHCP) which is not the same as ip detail provided for LAN sharing hence unable to connect to local HUB. If i try to configure the internet port of the router with above configuration i am unable to connect to local HUB as well as internet.

I want to connect to local HUB while connected to internet using a wifi router. I don't find any problem while connected directly. I have configured my computer's LAN card manually with the above configuration provided for LAN sharing & able to connect to internet as well through dial up connection. (connected directly without using a router).

Pls. help. i am unable to figure out the difference between the two (direct connection & while using a router)

Thanx in advance,

Your post is confusing since you use terms not consistant with how they are used.

You have a modem. Are you using PPPoE for authenication?

You have a router. Does it support PPPoE on the wan interface?

A router is a two part device. You have no HUB. It has a switch for the lan ports and is also a router between those lan ports and the wan port which connects to the modem.

If you are using authenication [you call it dial up but its not a dial up connection but a broadband connection requiring authenciation] when you put in a account name and password this is called PPPoE.

Is this how you connect to the internet?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Hi Wandrer,

Thanx for the reply. Yes it is a Broadband connection requiring authentication (PPoE).

Let me explain the scenario, when I am not using the Router. i.e., connected directly on my Laptop by inserting the LAN cable on the LAN port of laptop. We use DC++ for local LAN sharing by joining the HUB hosted locally. For that purpose, ISP has provided us the static ip. To be able to share on LAN we need to do the below manual configuration.

IP range – 192.168.100.3 – 192.168.100.xxx
Default Gateway – 192.168.100.1
Subnet – 255.255.255.0
Prinamy DNS – 203.115.71.66
Secondary DNS – 203.115.81.38

This is the manual configuration that I have done on LAN card of my laptop & able to get connected to local HUBs of DC++ & at the same time able to get connected to internet (broadband connection requiring authentication). Now we have two sets of IP, one that has been configured manually on LAN card & another one assigned by ISP dynamically after getting connected to internet. Both the things are working properly together (LAN sharing as well as internet)

Scenario No. 2,

Instead of getting connected directly on laptop I want to use a wifi router so that I am able to get connected to internet as well as local HUBs on DC++ for LAN sharing. For achieving the goal what I did was inserted the LAN cable on the LAN port of the router (instead of WAN port) & Configured the LAN port of the Router with the following detail,

LAN IP – 192.168.100.150 (which is in range as provided by ISP for LAN sharing, in the same way that was configured on LAN card of Laptop)
Default gateway - 198.168.100.1 (it takes automatically)
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

Router set to act as DHCP. IP range 192.168.100.151 – 192.168.100.170 (so that it assignes the IP in the same range as specified for LAN sharing)

On WAN port – user name & password specified for internet connection.
Internet IP address – set to, get Dynamically from ISP
Prinamy DNS – 203.115.71.66
Secondary DNS – 203.115.81.38 (Primany & Secondary DNS server entered manually as provided by ISP)

Now when i insert the LAN cable on WAN port, I get connected to internet, also IP assigned to my laptop is in the range as provided by ISP for LAN sharing but I am not able to get connected to any local HUB on DC++ . When I remove the LAN cable from WAN port & insert it on the LAN port of the router I am able to join local HUB wirelessly but unable to get connected to internet, which was not the case when I was connected directly without router.

Pls. help how can I get connected to internet & local HUB on DC++ at the same time while using a wifi router.
