Problem creating a wireless network with my iBox V1.0

Hello,

I live in a TOAS building, and the net is provided through a wall LAN connection. In the past I have been connecting that to my PC. But now I want also a wireless network in my room (just a simple one to use with my tablet, iPhone).

I tried two methods to make the connections, both failed:

-I tried to connect a cable from the wall socket to the LAN4/UPLINK port and then another cable from LAN1 to my PC, but I couldn't get an internet connection with it (on the wifi or the PC).

-I tried to connect the cable from my wall to the PC (I get internet to my PC), and then another cable from my PC to LAN4/UPLINK. But I couldn't get internet connection on the wifi.

Do I need to do some changes in the settings somewhere to get it to work??

P.S. A couple of month ago I did this with another router (though it didn't have a WAN or UPLINK port) and it worked. Though I got disconnected from the TOAS network because I needed a WAN port to connect my cable to the wall socket.

 The highlighted method is ok , but just making physical connections is not enough. You must change also router´s internet settings from default  ADSL/DHCP to Ethernet Uplink/DHCP. Have you done that?

I am not sure about your router´s firmware version , but here is a link to comparable settings page. You can get into settings with browser in  http://192.168.100.1
