I recently picked up a 655 with hardware version A2 and flashed to the latest firmware. I have a HotBrick router. I only want to use the 655 as an access point AND especially to use the Guest Access or Guest Zone feature to allow visitors to bring their laptops and not virus up my network. My home network is open among a few computers for things like SageTV, file serving, etc.I can get the 655 to function just fine as a standard access point by following the instructions to turn off UPNP, DHCP, etc. as outlined in the manual. I then enable the Guest Access/Zone feature, and of course give it a different SSID name, make sure it's on 24 hours a day, that it is enabled, etc.
But, none of my computers can access the internet via the Guest Account feature, just the regular wireless portion. They show connecting to the Guest Account name, etc. but no internet. I've disabled every security feature I know of to test this. Again, the "regular" WAP tests great, but no Guest Account, which is really important and one of the main reasons I bought the unit.I'm wondering - does the Guest Account feature only work if the 655 is the main router, has DHCP enabled, etc.? Does it have to be the one and only router? If so, I'm in trouble, because I can't really give up my HotBrick due to failover features, etc.
I am fortunate enough to have unlimited interwebs through my DSL ISP, and I occasionally have guests that come by who would like to use it on their mobile devices.My problem is that when my Guest Zone is enabled there is no internet access. Otherwise the Zone functions 'normally' devices within the zone can view each other, but not outside.It is important for me that the Guest Zone doesn't see any of the devices within my Host Zone.
DIR-655 - Rev B 2.03NA Connection: PPoE Reconnect mode: On Demand Wireless Mode: Mixed G/N
im having a problem on my DIR-655, i just recently updated my DIR 655 2.03NA(which is no problem at all) to 2.10NA, & im having problem on my GUEST ZONE wireless network everytime i connect my Iphone 4 to it every second 10 seconds it goes on & off & i try to connect to the main wireless network it was working fine any causes to this?
I have disabled the internal DHCP/DNS server in the routers firmware. I have enabled the wireless guest access SSID. A client associating with the Guest Wireless Access will obtain a DHCP address from the server in the LAN zone, but cannot resolve DNS as the firewall prevents traffic to flow from the Guest zone to the LAN zone, as it should.Is there a way to enable the DHCP server and DNS server in the routers firmware, but only on the Guest Zone? Is it possible to get the Guest Zone to have a different subnet?Tech support has hung up on me twice now.
I'm wondering if there is a way to prioritize traffic on the router's main WiFi over the guest zone or if there is a way to limit the bandwidth on the guest zone.
Ideally, I'd like to keep a locked primary WiFi for high-speed usage (I know, nothing it really ever secure) and an open guest zone for low-speed usage to whomever wants it. As far as I can tell, the DIR-655 doesn't support this kind of configuration.
I recently changed my ssid name from the default "dlink" to a more unique one. The problem is that the router is still broadcasting the default ssid along with the new one. Guest zone is disabled and the new ssid is hidden. But the default ssid is not hidded. Using wpa2 with aes, hardware ver. A1/A2 Firmware ver 1.21. How to remove the "dlink" ssid?
I am thinking of getting the DAP-1522 access point but I wondered. Can I set it to broadcast on 5GHz for my laptop and ipad, so they can stream video. Then set the guest zone to broadcast on 2.4GHz just for my lame printer, my printer does not have LAN and only wireless b & g. If I do put the printer on the guest zone and I enable routing between zones, will my laptop be able to print to my printer?
207.NA Firmware, B1 Hardware in use on a DIR-655, Time Warner Cable setup. Nothing to do with Revision, cordless phones,I saw this asked once before specifically here, but it was never answered.After several attacks via our cable network and neighbors, we've HAD to turn on MAC filtering. There are TONS of devices attached normally so two situations popped up:
#1: What happens when you max out the authorized MAC address listings? Does the page get longer when you save/reboot it? Do I have to do it manually from there forward and where can I get down to the core programming level to edit the code and put the MAC's that are around and on 100% of the time to open up the plug-in list on the GUI?
#2: Guest Zone - we NEED a way to have random guests get on our Network with a different password we can randomly change to prevent the outside abuse, etc. but am I understanding what little else has been posted that the MAC filtering also covers the Guest Zone and therefore I have to stick them in there before they could simply log on with the current password? Is there any way to change/stop that without eliminating MAC filtration as a whole?
I have a Cisco 2901 which terminates a Class C address pool. I have split the Class C address pool into 3 sub-nets and 2 zones and created a non-addressable pool (private pool):
dmz-zone : x.x.x.0 TO x.x.x.127 (x.x.x.0/25) in-zone: x.x.x.128 TO x.x.x.159 (x.x.x.128/27) & x.x.x.160 TO x.x.x.191 (x.x.x.160/27) private-zone: 192.168.x.0 TO 192.168.x.255 (192.168.x.0/24)
I have configured private-zone NAT to use address pool x.x.x.161 TO x.x.x.189 within the in-zone.
dmz-zone - are servers for : DNS, Syslog, SIP & HTTP/HTTPS in-zone - is a SMTP mail server which is behind VPN Gateway/NAT, TomCat (Application Server) and PostgreSQL Server private-zone - is where all standard users are operating from and they can access the SIP & HTTP/HTTPS servers within dmz-zone My problem is that I cannot seem to configure the ZBFW to allow the dmz-zone HTTP/HTTP server to redirect to in-zone TomCat server.
I do not want to make the TomCat server generally visible and am instead using the Apache proxy/ajp13 to connect from dmz-zone server to in-zone server.However I cannot seem to get anything (including icmp) to work from dmz-zone to in-zone.
I have Policy:
POLICY-DMZ-IN (dmz-zone to in-zone) which has: any any udp/tcp inspect any any icmp inspect unmatched traffic DROP/LOG
But I still cannot get anything from dmz-zone to in-zone...Could the POLICY-DMZ-IN be being overridden by other dmz-zone to out-zone policies?
NOTE: I have routing rules for each of various sub-nets and all out-zone to dmz-zone, out-zone to in-zone and private-zone to out-zone, in-zone and dmz-zone routing works ok, so it appears problem is with ZBFW not routing table.
I have two SSIDs on an Autonomous Access Point, that goes to a 2960 switch, that connects to a L3 3560. I have a vlan for admin/private internal access that uses the native vlan (1) and guest vlan (50). I have configured both and I am trying to get both to go out the same Internet connection.
I cannot get the guest access to access the Internet. It looks like my computer will go, but it just comes up saying no Internet access.All interfaces are trunking this vlan properly. I can communicate from the laptop to the 3560 but I just can't get to the Internet.
I have an n600 ( F9K1102 v1 , firmware 1.00.09 ). My ISP provides my main router for my network, but I want to use the N600 as an access point, I have activated the "Use as Access Point" feature.Is it possible to still utilize the Guest Access feature in this case?
My network is such that I want to extend the signal of the GUEST account. I have a WAP54G set up for that purpose and am getting a very strong signal. I can access the main network, but not the Guest, I cannot even see the GUEST access. Any setting change that needs to be made that will allow me to access the GUEST account from the Access Point?
I have the Netgear wndr4500 router setup as an AP. The wndr4500 has a feature for guest wifi but will not connect to the internet. The main wifi will connect to the internet fine. I'm wondering if I use the WNDR4500 as an AP, the guest features do not work?
We have an Cisco Aironet 1130AG access point which is deployed as Stand Alone Access point, connected to Cisco 2960 Switch.Now we want to configure an Guest Wifi Access for guest users , for accessing internet ,Is it possible to configure Guest wifi for stand alone access point,( Bcoz i created in WCS, i am not sure about stand alone), i read in articles like create new vlan for Guest account & assign it like that , but not clear.
Hardware: Cisco 3750 switch and Cisco autonomous access point (AIR-AP1142N-E-K9).Requirement: A single broadcast SSID; use dot1x to assign vlan 98 to authenticated clients (computer certificate); assign vlan 3 (guest) if the authentication fails.I can achieve assigning a guest vlan on authentication failure when using a wired connection by using the following command on the interface:authentication event fail action authorize vlan 3 I'm after a way to achieve the above using the wireless access point. The main point is that internal users cannot access vlan 3 as they have a valid certificate and that guests do not have to authenticate.
Is it possible to allow certain websites to bypass the web authentication pages, so that they do not need to authenticate to get to our own website, but do have to if they wish to go anywhere else?Looking at a 5508 model at the moment
I have just moved into a new apartment that has a free wifi connection the problem is that my apartment is in the basement at the completly opposite side of the office and i cant get a strong enough signal to connect to the internet and im not very good with computers. the first time i tride setting up the repeater i was able to connect everything and get online but it had changed the ssid and when i tride to change it bacck to its origanil name i lost my internet connection and have not been able to get access the internet again.

I've been following those instructions to set a dir-615 as a wifi access point connected to a switch : [URL]. I am now able to connect to the 615 either by wifi or by typing it's ip address with another computer connected to the LAN. Connecting to the 615 by wifi, i can do a ping request to urls or receive and send mail with my e-mail client but i can't access websites using my browser.s it possible to get it working without installing some kind of modified firmware? I tried plugging the Internet ethernet cable in the LAN and Internet ports of the 615, none works.
I have have my Dir-655 set up as an access point for awhile and would like to change the wireless access code. I can't seem to figure out how to access the setup menu while it is an access point to do this. How I access the router when it is set up as an access point?
Im trying to use my DIR 655 as an access point from my new router, which is a TP-Link TL-R860. I've read about every post and blog I can find about this and still cant get it to work. Currently I have a cable running from the TP main router to LAN port 1 on the 655. I then plugged my computer in to LAN port 2 to configure the router.
I changed the router IP of 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2, and disabled the DHCP. But I cannot access the DIR655 at the above new address by a browser. Note that the existing router's IP is 192.168.1.1 which the DIR655 is going to be cascaded with.
I like the ease and price of the 655 as well as the range and speed. I was wondering if you can use them as a bridge to connect another building or just add a second as an access point? It does not seem straightforward from the control panel.
I've moved into a new apartment with a couple of people who already have wifi set up. They are adament about me not running a ethernet cable across the apartment to my room for my xbox 360. I have a DIR-601 from my last apartment, and I am wondering if there is a way to set up the router as an access point that allows me to connect to the existing wifi network and then wire my xbox 360 in.
I have a D-Link DIR-655 with an usb dongle DWA-140. I used to work with a Sitecom WL-341 router.I want to use the Sitecom WL-341 as an acces point to improve my wireless range at the top floors of my house.
What I want to create:
- The modem connects to the D-Link router;
- The D-Link router makes a wireless connection with the Sitecom router;
- The Sitecom router is now an acces point;
- I connect the Sitecom router with a cable or wireless to my desktop PC.
I don't want a cable in my house that connects the D-Link with the Sitecom. If I do this, not only will people get hurt getting up the stairs because of the cable lying there, it also isn't a pretty sight...
So, in an attempt to improve my signal in my house I relocated my router upstairs from downstairs by running a long cable to the modem downstairs, since I have read that the signal travels more efficiently down than up apparently. That has not been the case. Now, I have two routers. A D-link DIR-655 and a Netgear router provided by Comcast which is a WNR-1000v2.
possible to set one of these routers up as a wireless access point? Have a router upstairs be the access point, and have a router downstairs connected to the modem. This sounds like this may be a solution but let me know if I'm completely wrong. In my mind, what I'm after is more of a range extender or a repeater but at this point I don't know the difference anymore. It's been quite stressful dealing with my old man for the past week because he can't use his iPad.
