Home Network :: PC Confuses When 2 Interfaces Are Enabled
Jun 12, 2011
I try to setup a network where both interfaces in my laptop are enabled. One is a wifi interface, the other is LAN. My WIFI is supposed to connect to a router that connects to a modem and the LAN interface is supposed to connect to my other PC.The problem with the configuration occurs when I try to access the internet, my laptop confuses not knowing where it should send the IP packets to the LAN or to the WIFI interface.What is the best solution for accessing the internet from my laptop (I don't care about accessing it from other PC) without change the topology? Should I configure the browser in my laptop so that it access internet through proxy?
I have a Time Warner Cable business class service with no static IP, with a wireless modem which is plugged to a CAT5 distribution panel. On the jacks (2 other rooms on the house) I have a Linksys E3000 and a Linksys Valet router for signal boost and gadgets usage (TV, cameras, etc).The main router (TWC) has it's own external IP which TWC assigns to me and internally distributes via DHCP the range 192.168.0.x. With that said:
- The E3000 has a 192.168.0.6 IP -- this is fixed setup on the TWC router (ubee brand) by MAC address - The Valet has a 192.168.0.7 IP -- this is fixed setup on the TWC router (ubee brand) by MAC address - The main router has the 192.168.0.1 as the gateway and web-interface
Whenever I connect something to the E3000, it is distributing the 192.168.1.x range and the valet 192.168.2.x range.That works perfectly for my home based business until I decided to use more stuff on the network such as a IP printer, IP cameras, etc.
- The IP cameras are connected to the E3000 due to signal strength and I have manually assigned them the 192.168.1.15 and 192.168.1.16 IPs and ports 9001 and 9002.
- The printer is connected to the E3000 and I have manually assigned the IP 192.168.1.30.
Issue 1: Port forwarding On the main router (TWC - UBEE) I have tried to setup a port forwarding by informing the Local IP as 192.168.0.6 (E3000 IP), Internal Port 0, Public Interface IP (0.0.0.0), Ext Start Port 9001, Ext End Port 9001, Protocol - Both, Enabled Yes. On the E3000 I did the same config (screen shot attached e3000.png).This is not working properly. I can't get into the camera.
Issue 2: Printer/ The printer is only accessible if I connect to the E3000 (because it is on the 192.168.1.x network)
Issue 3: How to configure all the devices on the same subnet? If I want everyone to be on the 192.168.0.x network, how to configure properly the E3000 and the Valet? I have tried to force them into the same network but it would not work properly. It would not get an IP from the UBEE router (main).
I have disabled / enabled and unistalled / installed and updated driver software but to no avail.It has been replaced, I have refreshed TCP/IP as per previous instruction found here and it did go a bit further, but now stuck as per below from CCX diagnostics Utility:
I have a HP G62 laptop with windows 7 and a Atheros AR9285 wifi adapter. The Wireless Assistant shows the WLAN as disabled. In the device manager, the adapter is listed as enabled. When I push the F12 key that turns on and off the wireless, the wireless assistant alternates between showing the WLAN as Off or Disabled. I tried disabling the adapter and re-enabling it from the device manager, but the wireless assistant still shows it as disabled.
I had it working fine up until i decided to install a new harddrive on my xp pro machine. but to the point, when i connect to the 3g card its fine, but if i try to enable the lan at the same time it disconnects my 3g card. my problem isnt how to network two computers, its how to get lan and a usb modem working simultaneously. i have tried to enable ics, then reboot. same results. if i can get the lan to stay on while the 3g card is on i have the rest whooped.it is some kind of setting somewhere. maybe i need to install windows 2003 server or something like that.
My Toshiba laptop running Vista as an operating connects just fine to the wireless network at my house. However, I will soon be house-sitting at a house that also has security-enabled wireless available. I connect just fine at my house, but whenever I put in the password at their house it says that that it cannot connect because of a timeout. I can't figure out what the problem is, because I recently went to the public library that has wifi and got on just fine. why in the world it will not connect to this specific wireless router??
My wife and I Security Enabled our wireless network several months ago.We recently moved, and after transferring Internet service, we realized we'd lost our passkey.My wife's laptop has, after one failed attempt to connect to the network, refused to even show the network as an available connection.We currently have the router set to broadcast SSID.We have restored factory settings on the router and completely revamped the security setup.We've removed all other networks in the area as optional connections on her computer.We also replaced the ethernet cord to my desktop because the old one started erratically disconnecting.Nothing's worked.My wife's computer is a Dell laptop using Windows Vista.
I recently entered the realm of wireless networking for my desktops and was able to connect my personal desktop successfully. Unfortunately, the other desktop I really need to make wireless is having difficulties. The computer never shows the message that a new device is discovered/installed. The adapter shows up under hardware devices and functioning properly but this is not the case. I installed the driver from the included CD but when I use Windows to troubleshoot, it says that the driver and adapter aren't working. When trying to set up a new network, I get a grayed-out wireless icon in the system tray and can't proceed. I disabled the firewall and antivirus so I could start over, uninstalling the driver, restarting and installing again.
Ever since I bought the E4200 months ago I had no wireless network between my laptops. pc's devices. I discovered now that I do have network (everything cool) when I disable NAT. That is all nice, but I don't have internet then.
Here's the layout: Cable modem in the basement. Several devices in which I'd prefer a wired connection in the basement. Upstairs on the 1st and 2nd floor of the house are many devices in which wifi is fine or preferred.Here's the problem: As you might guess, wifi is weak upstairs and certainly on the patio and 2nd floor. I have an access point upstairs that I've experimented with but it is flaky.
I am a new student in networking, taking the CCNA courses, and now want to rewire my home. I currently have a cable modem and E2500 setup running my network. I want to get the modem and router out of my computer room and in the basement where the cable enters the house. I want to do this to clean up the computer room wiring a bit and to run line drops to different rooms in the house where the internet will be utilized.Currently there are two PC's, a laptop, a tablet, sometimes a phone, and an XBOX using the internet. I want to get my printer back up and running on the network but thats another story. Only one PC is currently hardwired. I would like to run two cables into the room with the PC and XBOX that are currently using wireless, at least two into the computer room for the PC and network printer, and one or two into the living room for the blue ray player and possibly an internet tv.
I have a D-Link DGL-4500 router and my landlord recently ungraded our internet connection. However, now I get this error message when I try to hook it up to the ethernet hub,"The addressing of the Internet side learnt thru DHCP conflicts with the addressing selected for the LAN side. Internet communications will be disabled until you have changed the LAN side addressing to resolve the problem."
I have a laptop that is running windows 7 premium and a desk top that is running xp pro. The laptop is connected to the internet but the desktop is not. I have them set up in a ethernet network through an RJ-45, and both are connected, but I can't seem to share the laptop's internet connection with the desk top. I've enabled internet sharing with the wireless network, but my desktop still cannot connect.
I purchased a Linksys EA3500 about two months ago, brought it home and set it up with my DSL provider and everything was great, until sometime last week, and since then my download speeds have just plummeted to basically nothing. I did some troubleshooting but I cannot seem to find what the issue is. I have checked all the cables etc, and I know that it is definitely something with the router itself..My current Speedtest.net speeds are as follows (I am paying for a 5mb connection) with the EA3500.Ping of 15ms Download speed of .67mbps, Upload speed of .60mbps.When I remove the router and hook straight to the DSL modem I get the following results.Pink of 12ms Download speed of 4.89mbps, Upload speed of .60mbps
- I have tried to reset the router both by holding the reset button and through the configuration application. - I have enabled and disabled wireless to see if that was slowing things down - I have plugged in my old WRT54G and I get the 12ms, 4.89mbps,.60mbps results on it (so I know its the EA3500) - I tried putting the computer in the DMZ - I have changed the ports that the computer is plugged into - I have disabled and enabled IPV6 on both router and network card - Firmware version - 22.214.171.124141
I have upgraded to the new RV042G to take advantage of the gigabit Ethernet speeds and to prepare for when our ISP upgrades our bandwidth. I currently use the RV042 with Protect Link enabled to filter out various categories from our network traffic. I noticed that this feature is not included with the RV042G.
Is this something Cisco will decide to add back in later? In the meantime, how to block content on the network? The basic URL and keyword filter will not meet our needs, since it is much easier to let a service such as Trend Micro manage what is blocked in the categories they offer.
I have setup a webserver on my home PC and I have forwarded port 80 on my router to the IP adress of the PC that is running the web server. The web server is working great; I can get to my web pages from outside of my home by going to http://MyIpAddress/Anyway, the problem is with the Windows Media Player plugin I'm using. I want to embed 6GB MPEG-2 videos into my web pages. I have some videos on my PC and I want to be able to watch them remotely by connecting into my web page. It works fine when I'm at home; other PCs can connect and play the videos no problem. The problem is when I'm at work. When I'm at work, I go to my web page (via my IP address in a web browser) and the Media Player plugin says "Connecting" for a minute, then it says Ready, but the video will not play. I tried using a smaller, AVI file (680 MB) instead to see if the problem was streaming such a large file, but the video still would not play.Do I need to foward more ports on my router so that Windows Media Player can connect back and get the information it needs?
I have ADSL modem in my workplace that is connected to a switch and other workplace computers are connected to this switch so the ADSL internet is shared in LAN network.(in each of computer I set default Gateway to ip of modem .....)I want to dial my workplace from home and then use of workplace internet or connect to workplace LAN.(such as VPN or Port Forwarding or I don't know...)
I have been having a bit of trouble with networking my two machines to share files and allow printing i have a win 7 laptop and a xp home desktop. I share a net connection via 02 wireless box both systems have wireless i have tried many things
Every time I connect to my home network with iPhone 4 my whole network stops working. Windows 7 is not reporting any problems with connection, nor is my router. I have cable connection with my PC and wireless with my laptop, they both just stop working without any visible reason. Even the iphone i connect with wont work, but of course it says its connected and everything is ok.I tought it was an iOS 5 problem, so I reinstalled it. It worked for an hour then its all back again. I even tried sharing my PC conection so that my iPhone is connected to PC and not directly to router.But that produced the same results.
My Set up at home is as follows: [code] Now according to what I have read I should be able to set the subnet on .2.0 network to a subnet of 254 and this gives me 512 Hosts I believe however my question at this point is how to route between 192.168.1.0 and 192.168.2.0.Or when I set the subnet .254 does the router just route it automatically.I would still set the subnet mask on both networks to 254 correct? I believe I can only use 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.255 w/.254 subnet mask. However I already have some servers that are configured with applications (On the 192.168.2.0 network) that I do not want to change ips on because it would be a pain to reconfigure so, my other question is other than using .252 to extend it to 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.3.255, (I need the 192.168.2.0) is there anything I can do? Like use 192.168.1.0 with subnet mask of 255.255.254.0 to get the 192.168.2.0 network? The reason I asked is I was using a subnet calculator to try and figure this out but every time I put in 192.168.1.0 with .254 subnet mask it changed the ip to 192.168.0.1 to 192. 168. 1. 255.I would really like to use the netgear only. The way I have it now is not working I am able to ping the internet from the 192.168.1.0 network but I can't ping from 192.168.2.0 network to the 192.168.1.0 network.
At the moment I have my home network (192.168.0.0/24) like as below (all connect using straight cables): [code] My Cisco lab equipment are in the basement all connecting to an access server which at the moment is plugged into Switch3-dumb (along with a printer & NAS).What I'm thinking is to replace the Switch3-dumb with a 3550 I'll be picking up later this week.Then using this to do as the Switch3-dumb did maybe by creating a native 'vlan 192' & putting it into a gig interface which will connect to the network using the straight cable, also putting the printer & NAS into the same vlan.This will hopefully still give me connectivity throughout.Then when required I'll like to use the 3550 with the rest of my Cisco equipment for setting up different labs (segmenting them from the home network by using different vlans etc.One of my reasons to implement the 3550 into the home network is to be able to play about on a regular basis (port monitor, traffic stats, etc).
I actually starting to work on a cisco project. I'm a beginner on networking and cisco technologie.
For my project we use a router 2921. We got two network: - Network A: 192.198.0.X / 255.255.255.0 / Gateway 126.96.36.199 - Network B: 162.168.0.X / 255.255.0.0 / Gateway 188.8.131.52
Each network use switch, Switch A (connecting to network A) is connected to interface G0/0. And Switch B (connecting to network B) is connected to interface G0/1.
Router well configured as: - G0/0: ip address 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.0 (network A) - G0/1: ip address 220.127.116.11 255.255.0.0 (network B) Every think working fine.
The problem is with this one, we need to connect a computer on G0/2. This computer is configure as network A (18.104.22.168 / 255.255.255.0 and same gateway).I can't configure G0/2 as 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.0 (network A), cause G0/0 use this adresse.I can't put this computer on the switch A, my only physical possibilité is to connect him on G0/2.We just need to use interface G0/0 and G0/2 as a switch on the router with the same gateway (126.96.36.199)
How can i connect this computeur? How can i configure two interfaces on the same network and same gateway?
My Wifi network has a wpa2 password that is a random string of characters and numbers and yet last month a rogue IP Address kept popping up on my DNS list. It has to be coming from my neighbor who's bedroom is about 15 feet away from my router. So unless someone is sitting out on my front lawn to do this then it must be him.I've been looking for software that will notify me when a connection my router is attempted and kudos if it also asks my permission first would be great.There are wifi packet sniffers out there like Cain&Abel, Airsnort, that sort of thing but I am not quite savvy enough nor do I want to turn this into a complicated hobby but just need a basic warningin case something gets past my passwords again
After trying most things and spending money like water, I still cannot get our home network to be adequate and I am out of options - Tried using two 100MBit/s Netgear routers "bouncing" signal to each other (Wireless Repeating Function). Not ideal as security is small and speed was slow (<10MBit/s) but at least it worked. However these routers had to get pensioned off when we put gigabit ethernet in the office - and the Netgear replacements (a) still have the security limitations with wireless repeating, (b) anyway see to do a worse job of repeating. Tried buying Netgear directional high-gain antennas and directing the signal point to point to a second router - didn't work at all. Tried Powerline (this was in 2008). It sort-of worked but was unreliable and dog slow. I think this is probably not worked by the fact that this building is OLD, most of the wiring is OLD, and anyway the electrical path would take the signal from the 4th floor, down some very old wiring to the ground floor, across a very old switchboard, and back up to the second floor... it's not quite the same as a modern house with modern wiring. Most recently tried using Netgear's Wireless Network Extender. Again, it sort of works, but it's NOT fast at all. In addition there are times when some of our computers using the extension segment of the network are unable to connect - they can still see 3-4 bars of signal, but they cannot get on the network. Appears to be an issue relating to gateway, or DNS, not sure. But I would say about 1 day in 3, when I come home, my wife tells me that the "internet is off".
My home network consists of a Linksys WRT54GL router running DD-WRT supplying wired access to my desktop, a bridge to another WRT54GL (also running DD-WRT) to provide a wired connection to a XBOX upstairs, and wireless access to about 5 or 6 different devices including several laptops, an iPad, and an iPod touch. My question is this:
I am adding a 22" TV into my office so I can watch TV while working on my desktop. I only have one cable jack in my office which is currently plugged straight into my cable modem. This means I'll have to use a splitter to give both my TV and modem cable access. How much signal degradation or speed do I stand to lose or should expect to lose?
