So you are behind 2 routers are a modem? (Which a lot of times the modem is a router as well.)

If you are behind 3 devices, why do you have it setup like that?

I use 2 routers so the signal reaches all my house. And my one modem doesn't generate Wifi signal.

Ok, so is the 2 wireless modem hooked to the first one? At what point is your computer hooked up? (Which router is it connecting to?)

The 2 routers are independent and both connected to the modem. My computer is connected to one of the 2 routers.

a) So us helpers can help you, better: what is the network layout?

b) If you are not sure of the network layout, start of by physically finding the equipment.

c) For example this what I used to have...

#1 A phone wire and a power wire from wall jack goes to power surge protector

#2 A phone wire and a power wire from power surge protector goes to my Westell-F90-610015-06.

#3 The Westell-F90-610015-06 is a DSL modem combo and it is configured per DSLR (dslreports.com) -> FAQs -> Verizon Online DSL FAQ -> Hardware -> How do I use a router with the Westell 6100?

#4 My Westell 6100F, only has one RJ-45 LAN port to it.

#5 The other end of that wire is connected to the uplink port of my Dynex DX-EHB4 ver 3.0

#6 My Dynex DX-EHB4 ver 3.0 has five ethernet ports (one of them is the uplink port).

#7 Connected to one of my Dynex DX-EHB4 ver 3.0 other RJ-45 ports (but not the port next to the uplink port) is other ethernet wire.

#8 One of those other ethernet wire(s) connects to my Linksys WRT54G v2's WAN/Internet (or To Modem) port.

#9 My Linksys WRT54G v2 has five ethernet ports (one is the WAN/Internet/To Modem Port).

#10 Connected to the RJ-45 LAN port number one of my Linksys WRT54G v2 is a wire that goes to my Dynex DX-E402's RJ-45 LAN port number four.

#11 My Dynex DX-E402 has five ethernet ports (one is the WAN/Internet/To Modem Port).

#12 The WAN/Internet (or To Modem) port of my Dynex DX-E402 has a wire connected to one of the RJ-45 LAN ports of the Dynex DX-EHB4 ver 3.0.

#13 No other wires, other than a power supply line is connected to the my Dynex DX-EHB4 ver 3.0

#14 Connected to my Dynex DX-E402's RJ-45 LAN port number one is my computer.

#15 No other wires, other than a power supply line is connected to the my Dynex DX-E40.

#16 Connected to the RJ-45 LAN port number two, three, and four of my Linksys WRT54G v2 are ethernet wire(s) that all go to a wall jack.

#17 LAN port number four of Linksys WRT54G v2, in turn goes to the computer that is down stairs and nothing else is on that wire.

Simply stated (OR in other words) : If I were to go down stairs and disconnect the wire that is connected to the computer, the light for LAN port number four of my Linksys WRT54G v2 would go off.

#18 LAN port number three of Linksys WRT54G v2, in turn goes to the computer that is in my dad's office area and nothing else is on that wire

#19 LAN port number two of Linksys WRT54G v2, in turn goes to the computer that is in my mom's bedroom/office area and nothing else is on that wire.

#20 No other wires, other than a power supply line is connected to the my Linksys WRT54G v2.

d) If not sure of what kind of cable is (or cables are) used, just tell what you know about the layout.
