Home Network :: Way To Connect Hard Disk From Another Network Without Using VPN?
Feb 14, 2013
I have 2 questions about a Network hard disk(for home using).I bought a hard disk (with a network card).This hard disk is connected to my "box"I have 2 questions...Is there a way to increase the speed of writing (20 Mo/s in usb) against 1 Mo/s in network.My second question is to find a way to connect to this harddisk from another network without using VPN
I have a apple time capsule feeding into a tp link ethernet switch, connected to this i have a macbook pro, apple tv2 and a wd ethernet hard drive. I have just bought a wd firewire hard drive and would like to know how i can connect this to my "home network" as far as i can see the only way is straight into my macbook, if i do it that way will i still be able to back up onto my other drives and vice versa.
I bought the router belkin n600 and it says in the box the USB support the FAT16/32 and NTFS which is I am really interested in but I was disappointed when I attached my book WD essitionl 3TB in to it because the router couldn't see it and I also tried a 320GB Toshiba external hard disk has NTFS file system and it didn't work ..
How do I combine two (or more) physical drives into one on an XP based machine? I have an older machine I want to essentially use as a NAS type device over my home network to stream content from, but want all the installed drives to essentially be "merged" together to show as just one if possible. I think its sometimes referred to as "disk pooling". I have XP Pro available to install so maybe this has something built-in that can easily handle this task. It also needs to be done on an XP based machine (not Linux) due to some other specialized software that will be running on it for another reason and is for XP only. Basically, any suggestions on how to have some sort of 'disk pooling' for 2+ drives on an XP machine? Can it simply be done within XP Pro? Or maybe there is some sort of free software out there that can handle this. This machine currently doesn't have any important data on it so experimenting and wiping something out can be done if needed.
I have a Seagate 1TB USB External Hard Drive that I want to share on my wireless home network, and I'm having difficulty finding a cheap, reliable solution. I would also, ideally, like to connect a USB printer for similar sharing.I have two XP PC's on the network, and will probably be getting a Windows 7 machine.The router is the generic one supplied by my ISP.
1. Connect both hard drive and printer to always-on PC that shares with Windows.This would work but I'm not keen on the 'always on'
2. Use a Pogoplug to connect the hard drive and printer to the router Again, a good solution and always-on, but a little pricey - ?60-100?
Is it possible to have RAID configuration on your virtual hard disk of your virtual machine?As an example case is I have 1 PowerEdge R910 which I have installed it with Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition and i used it's Hyper-V as the hypervisor. the HDD's of the PowerEdge are not RAIDed. I want to make 4 virtual machine's which are installed with Windows Server 2008 R2 as a virtual OS on Hyper-V and i want only 1 of them that has it's virtual HDD is RAIDed.
Camera set up with the Beta Mac wizard connected via ethernet on Airport base. Wireless security WPA2 Personal. Using DHCP. AirPort Utility 5.5.2, OSX 10.6.6.I can see the cam with the myDlink Lite iPhone (4) App when I am in my house with my wireless network. When I am out, away from my network, the App can't connect to the cam, tells me to check my network settings. I did the wps way and added the cam in the airport base utility *Access Control* tab but still doesn't work. Checked in the cam web page settings, can't figure out what the Pre-Shared Key is and where I get it/set it up in the airport utility...
I have a question about my windows systems(XP and Vista) re-connecting to my network folders when my computers restart. I have some shared network folders on my Synology DS410. And then i mapped a network drive to use those folders.But every time i restart my computer i get the message "cannot reconncet all network drives"I have to put in my username and password everytime. I choose Remember login and password.How can i fix this so it automatically connects to these on restart?
FYI... 1 computer - Windows Vista Home Premium 1 computer - Windows XP Home Both connected via wired LAN
My iSCSI drives connect just fine on restart. Just not my mapped network folders.
I am a avid fan of Linksys routers i blindly go buy it. But one feature which i feel isn't there on linksys is the ability to start downloads on the router and also peer to peer capability such as torrents. Asus routers have this and it works flawlessly love to have this feature on the Linksys routers. This is one and only request i ask for in firmware update?
I have a home network and I need to connect 3 USB printers. I was searching online and I'm not sure if I needed a network switch, a USB network hub, or a multiport print server. I need all 3 PCs to be able to access any printer.
Here's what I have in mind. I'm just not sure what hardware I needed (red outline). The cheaper the better. Oh and I don't want a 24/7 PC running as a server.
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
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).
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'm having trouble connecting to my home network. Whether it be wireless or wired. My computer will say that I'm connected to my network, however it says identifying network forever. Same thing with wired. I'm running windows 7...my network adapter cards are as followed : Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter and Atheros AR8151 PCI-E gigabit ethernet controller. I've tried to update both of them, with no success. I've uninstalled both of them and reinstalled them, again, with no success.
Well I am typing to you all from my linux box. I have a desktop that runs Windows XP SP3 and have not been able to get it to connect for months now. I use an smc2862w-g USB card to connect from it ordinarily but like I said, it hasn't connected to my home network for months. It reads and connects to my neighbors networks just fine but for some reason it is isolated to my home network. My home router/modem is an Arris model.Today while I was talking to some guys I know in IRC who work the IT field, I got it to work for all of about 10 minutes. The problem is, is that it was an intermittent sync. I noticed that when I were to change channels in my router it would follow to let's say channel 11 but the card would bounce back and forth between 11 and 10 causing intermittent sync. If I changed to channel 4 then it would bounce between that and 5. Channel 6, same thing and so on and so forth. I read somewhere that it could be a problem with conflicting chipsets between the router and card but that doesn't make much sense to me. I've been in the computer field for a few years now as a Security Specialist and tech support agent so this does not add up. [code]
I have a server webpage hosted on a local linux machine. I can access it by typing the I.P. into my address bar from another computer on the same network.way to connect to my computer on my home network from a computer not on my network.
I need to connect my home pc to my office LAN, is there a way of connecting to the LAN remotely as if the pc was locally joined to the network? I don't want to connect to a specific pc just join the network itself. When I logged into the router management I thought I would be able to just specify a remote IP address that would be allowed to connect to the LAN as if it were local but there is no obvious way of doing that. The router is an SMC.
I have a Windows Vista Service Pack 2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, and a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 that I am attempting to connect to each other on my home network. Their WorkGroup is the same name, and on the Vista, and 7, the locations are a home network. Sometimes I see one computer on the other, but then if clicked, it wont connect and gives me a Cannot connect or computername-PC not found. That, or my computers will not show up on one another. I also have McAfee Total Protection with a Home Network option to 'Trust' each PC to be able to connect them in a network within McAfee and scan each one for virus protection. That will not work either. It did once, but not now. All McAfee versions are up to date yet I see on some devices when they sometimes show up on McAfee that the program on the other computer is an older version. Then, when I do get the option to send a request to 'Trust' another PC, I'll enter a password to be re-entered in the other computer, then it'll instruct me to enter it into that other computer but then it fails before I can do so. It'll say the other computer is not available.
I can't connect connect to my home wireless network. It says I am connected but none of my browsers will load anything. I can connect to other wireless networks that i have access to.I can connect if i plug into the router directly
Two laptops (Vista) connect to wireless router.Wireless printer is also connected to wireless router.Desktop has colour printer attaced to it.I want to connect the desktop (XP) to the wireless router so the laptops can print to the colour printer, and the laptops can open shared files on the desktop, but don't want the desktop to be able to connect to the rest of the world.
I bought a new laptop with Windows 7. Desktop is running Vista. Printer is set to share and connected to Vista machine. Printer and file sharing is enabled on both machines. Running Windows firewall on both machines. Disabled Comodo firewall on Vista machine. Both computers have the same workgroup. Both computers have the same user name and password. Password protected sharing is turned off both machinesVista can access the W7 machine, last night W7 could see but not access Vista, but it doesn't even see it. When I troubleshoot I get a message "file and print sharing resource (Vista PC name) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts".
