Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs / Setup Local DNS Server To Manage Small Office Local-only Domain Names?

Apr 22, 2012

i'm trying to setup a local DNS server to manage small office local-only domain names for our servers. i have the DNS working properly (resolving local machines and using the ISP dns if it can't). so i put the DNS server ip into the "Static DNS 1" field of the router settings. the other 2 static dns fields are empty.the problem is that the router is still using the ISP dns server as the primary and my local dns server as the secondary. i verify this in two places. first, if i go to the "status" tab, DNS 1 shows the ISP server while DNS 2 shows my local DNS server. secondly, if i connect to the wireless device with a linux-based machine, the /etc/resolv.conf file shows the nameserver ips in the same incorrect order.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5505 - Local Host Names To DNS Server At Main Site

Mar 3, 2013

I ran into a very interesting problem that occurred today and I'm trying to figure out why it happened. If it was one ASA 5505 that just required the reboot, then I'd have just chalked it up to a glitch, but when we built a new AD/ DNS server on the main network at the main site and changed the 3 Remote site ASAs to point to the new DNS server in the DHCPD options, none of them could ping any local host names to the DNS server at the main site they were now pointing too, but external host names { URL} all translated and pinged fine.
From a laptop on one of the remote sites, we could ping the new AD/DNS server( and the old AD/DNS server( and everything else at the main site, and telnet to port 53 showed successful across the Easy VPN from the Remote site to the new server at the main site. When wire shark was added to the new DNS server at the main site, the DNS request and replies for {URL}, for example, came and worked fine, but any requests for local resources never made it to the server from the remote sites.
A reboot of one of the Remote Site ASA's corrected the issue. Then I rebooted the other two remote site ASAs, and now DNS was working fine for everybody. I had also tried clearing the ARP cache on the ASAs before resorting to rebooting them. I also tried rebooting the laptop thinking the local DNS cache needed cleared before resorting to rebooting the ASAs. I'm struggling to understand why external, public host names made it through and resolved from the remote sites to the new server at the main site, but anything local failed before even reaching the new server(The new DNS server could resolve requests made by computers at the main site, but the remote sites that traverse the Easy VPN from the ASAs failed).  The new AD/DNS server is the only server configured for DNS for all remote site computers.
Is any of this making sense? I'm wondering if clearing the x late or local host tables would have corrected it without having to reboot. I'm just trying to grasp the understanding here and figure out what happened.

Network Setup For Small Office With Peer Or Server Based

Apr 13, 2011

XYZ Corporation currently employs eight people but plans to hire 10 more in the next four months. Users will work on multiple projects, and only those users assigned to a project should have access to the project files. You’re instructed to set up the network to make it easy to manage and back up. Would you choose a peer-to-peer network, a server-based network, or a combination of both?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5505 - How Name Resolution In Small LAN Can Be Done Without Local DNS Server

Mar 30, 2011

I like the ASA 5505 for SMB and Home Offices very much, but I'm missing sadly a DNS Server or at least the ability of the DHCP Server to use static addresses for certain MAC's. In SOHO's the ASA is the only thing always powerded on and often even a Server where a DNS Server could be installed is missing.So is there a chance to see such a feature (DNS Server and/or static DHCP) in the next SW Release? how name resolution in a small LAN can be done without a local DNS Server?

TP-Link Dual-Band Wireless :: TL-WDR4300 / Resolving Local PC Names On Non-windows Devices

Jan 30, 2013

Region : UnitedKingdom
Model : TL-WDR4300
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version : 3.13.23 Build 120820

Region : UnitedKingdom
Model : TL-WDR3600
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version : 3.13.23 Build 120820
ISP : BT Infinity

I am running a Windows Home Server machine called "mserver" that has an IP address supplied via DHCP.There is also a local webserver running on port 8089 that I use to access media from several devices (Android Phone, Blackberry Playbook & HP Touchpad...i.e. not Microsoft).When I had the BT Homehub3 in use I could access the webserver via http://mserver:8089 and it would be loaded on all devices. With the WDR3600 used in place of the Homehub3 it cannot resolve mserver into a local IP address on a non windows device. I can access it via so the route is there.Does the WDR3600 have any local DNS resolution? I repeat the BT HomeHub3 CAN do this, so why can't the TP-LINK?

P.S. I have tried :-

Disabling hardware NAT
Turning off UPNP & Port Forwarding
Restoring to factory default
Disabling all ALG's in security

D-Link DIR-655 :: Local Names Don't Resolve On New Cascaded

Jul 15, 2011

1. I have a DSL modem + wireless + router
2. I have a Vonage phone that taps into one of the LAN ports
3. I have DIR 655 router that taps into one of the LAN ports
4. I have NAS that taps into one of the DIR 655 LAN ports
5. I have Printer that taps into one of the DIR 655 LAN ports
6. I have a BD Player that connects to DIR 655 through wireless.

All my components that are tied to DIR-655 resolve through IP address. I would like to have the resolution through host name as it works with my first router (DSL Modem / Router). Identifying components with IP address is not only inconvinient in terms of reading / recognizing my components but ther could be other issues. I am not very techie on the networking side but I do have some basic knowledge.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Local Domain Name Settings On Router

Nov 21, 2012

I have the DIR-655 (H/w Ver B1, F/W Ver 2.05NA) set up as router on my network (TWC/RR - modem is Motorola SURFBoard 6121 - modem only, no router or other services provided). I have configured the router sufficiently to allow all computers on the local network to access the Internet, and have configured the DHCP server on the router to provide IP addresses to the local network. I have configured the router to provide the DNS addresses for my local DNS resolvers (so that I can provide DNS resolution for an "internal" domain). Configuration specifics available on request, but everything mentioned so far is working satisfactorily, at least so far.

So, my question: The "Local Domain Name" setting on the router, as indicated in the documentation, provides a connection-specific domain name when DHCP supplies an IP address to the local system. This setting, however, is overridden if the ISP provides a domain name when it assigns an IP to the WAN connection. I have verified by experiment that this is true (no matter what I put in the Local Domain Name field - whether a valid domain, or blank - the local machines receive the domain name supplied by the ISP.I wish to modify this behavior. I wish to have the router provide the domain name specified in the Local Domain Name field *regardless* of what the ISP provides.

Cisco Wireless :: AP 1131 As Office Extend With Local Ssid?

Feb 15, 2012

I have an 1131ag AP attached to our 5508 as an OEAP over the Internet.  Everything with the corporate SSIDs is working correctly, so no issue there.  I was wondering if a local ssid can be configured on the AP, similar to what can be done with the OEAP600, in order to provide wireless access to the Internet only?  On the WLC, on the H_REAP tab, there is a button labeled "Reset Personal SSID"

Feb 21, 2011

I have been tasked with the technology update of our office and have have MAJOR questions which I hope can be answered here, so here goes;

First a little history, I have an electronics degree and a certificate in computer technology, so computers are not something new to me, however networking IS.I have a VERY LIMITED budget to work with, which I'm sure is not unheard of before, with the following equipment already available:

3 totally junk PCs running 3 different versions of Windows from XP to 7
A DSL internet connection
A wireless router
A wired 8 port switch

What I would like to do is begin with a basic server, 7 clients, shared internet on all machines (including external via login), An MFP, at least 1 NAS for data storage, 1 NAS for backup of all drives.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2911 - Local Machine Names Won't Work

I have a 2911 router inside our network with both DHCP and DNS enabled. Everything works fine except since we use this router we are not being able to go to the network neighbourhood in Windows and look up machines by name (or typing \diskstation for example).

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Configuration On Office Network?

Sep 22, 2009

I work for a large company and want reinstall my wireless router so I move from room to room with my laptop without plugging into our network. I have had it set up before but had to spent an hour with tech support to configure the router.  Recently I had to reset the password and lost all the settings.
I can get to logged into the set up with the default password but have no idea how to configure it. No matter what I try I get no conectivity when I try to redirect the browser to the internet.
Yeah, I know I should let our network IT staff set it up, but they get all bent when I want to extend my access to a wireless configuration even if it's password protected.

Network Setup For Small / Medium Office?

Aug 14, 2011

What are the best network engineering practises for a small/medium sized office?Currently I have set it up like this:The top floor has all the sales people, each desk has a hub underneath which connects all computers at that desk together, and the hum is connected to a switch under the floor. There are about about 8 desks each with about 4 computers, so 8 hubs.They all go into a 10/100 switch, which is then connected to an 1gb switch on the bottom floor via a 1gb port on the top floor switch, via a cat6 cable.We then have internet > modem > router > the 1gb switch. Our main server is also connected to that switch along with all the computers for the ground floor, except these computers have 1gb switches under the desks instead of hubs. The main server is the DHCP, DC, DNS and file server. We have also setup another server which acts as a backup DC and is also a DNS server.Is there anything wrong with this configuration? We have been having problems with the router losing connection to the internet and warnings on the main DNS server.

Cannot Ping Local Domain Unless Specify DNS 1 On Workstation?

Nov 27, 2012

I cannot ping mydomain.local from any computer on my network. In order to this, I have to set DNS 1 as my server's ip address, then I can ping it. The reason this is a problem is because in order to add a workstation to my domain, I have to manually configure DNS to my server's ip. I have two networks, all new systems and this occurs on both. So obviously it is the way im setting things up[CODE]

Belkin F7D3302 - Resolve Local Domain Name

May 4, 2013

My Belkin router has an option to set a local domain name, which, I suspect, allows me to address hosts within my own network using this domain. By default, this is set to be "Belkin". Is it possible to call hosts within my network like this, e.g. ping foobar.Belkin instead of ping The thing is, my routers internal page shows all set host names (so dh client seems to work) and the router itself is reachable as router.Belkin, but no other hosts are. My problem here is that the router knows each hosts name, but the hosts don't know each others name. How can I fix that?

Note: Nmap showed that port udp/53 for DNS is open on my router, but I can't find any way to configure it on the Web-interface.

Add:// It's a "Belkin F7D3302 v1"

Security / Firewalls :: Kaspersky Small Office Or AVG File Server Edition 2012?

Aug 20, 2012

I can't seem to figure out which one I should go for. I'm thinking Kaspersky would have greater security but I'm not familiar with AVG's server level security.I don't need all the bells and whistles such as file encryption or password storage. I'm simply after a really strong AV for the server. Another one is VIPRE although I've heard it can take a while to configure it unlike Kaspersky which is pretty straight forward.

my brand new Linksys E1000 wireless router. I am really struggling and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.
I live in The Netherlands, have a modem (DSL I think...) and can connect wired through the modem with no problems.
I installed the E1000 with the CD, followed all the steps and my laptop is finding the network. However, it's only local, no internet and I don't understand why. Have tried to connect (wired) my computer to the E1000 and the E1000 to the modem but that doesn't work either.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 Local Connectivity

Nov 3, 2011

I am having connectivity problems with my router. I have gone into the router itself at, changed settings, reset settings, upgraded firmware to 1.0.04, and / or whatever else was posted by other users. I have also changed my settings for my lappy's networking adapter, re-edited my IP, removed / reinstalled network adapter, and / or whatever else I found to try to do.
I am running Vista 32 Home Premium, HP Pavillion dv6700 Notebook, with a Cisco Linksys E2000 Wireless N Router. I have connected a desktop via wireless USB adapter, my android phone, my GF's android phone, her kids iTouch and phones, and when I try to connect via wirelessly to the router, I get local access only with an unidentifiable network, which then limits my access online, (I cannot connect to the internet). It will let me get online via ethernet cable, but not wirelessly. I have bypassed the router and connected directly to the modem without any problems. I have reset the modem and router many times, as well as rebooted my laptop a lot trying to gain some connection. My laptop can connect to other wireless hotspots / access points without any problems.
