I want to create a link between two homes about 10/15 miles away from each other. I was thinking about using microwave technology to achieve this. I would like to be able to use this connection for linking two home networks/internet and possibly running iptv and voip over the link. I was hoping to operate in the unlicensed frequency.
I am looking for a more powerful wireless router that has a larger range. I want to have the ability to use the laptop at the house next door, so I need a range of like 150 ft, going through multiple walls (both concrete and wood) and still have enough for general Internet access.
My first question is if it's even possible and if so, what is a good router/system to use.
I would still need the ability to connect Ethernet to the router (at least 4 ports) and the wireless, obviously.
A major benefit as well would be the ability to install something like pfSense or DD-WRT onto for further management.
I've recently lost my ability to access the internet at uni and as this is quite an inconvenience I am considering some alternatives, the most viable one I've managed to come up with hinges on the fact that I live in a building which is only a road and another building away from the main uni buildings (3 buildings on 2 city blocks), basically it looks like this: UNI BUILDING 1 | UNI BUILDING 2 |ROAD| UNI BUILDING 3 |ROAD| MY APARTMENT.So I'm thinking of building one of these: url.. or waiting for the r20000g (dual band) to come out and buying that.THEN the area I'm having a bit of trouble with: I need to get reception about 600-700m away through buildings, so I've been looking at Yagi antennas and such but can't seem to find any information on the following:
1. Will a high powered directional antenna go through a few buildings and still make it 1km (.6 miles)
2. How directional is a directional antenna? like if I point one in the general direction of the building how accurate do I have to be? (I have no problem buying 4-5 antennas if I need to)
3. Do I need a new Wi-Fi antenna for my laptops? it seems odd to me that a laptop would be able to transmit back 1km while I need a giant antenna to get to the laptop (I know its not this simple but it still seems odd)
I have no problems with my adapter its just that my router is too far from my desktop and I need something that can reach far lengths , I don't recall what my wireless name is other than it uses 802 g type but it doesn't cut it when I want to play league of legends, so any recommendations? Also just moving my desktop is not an option
i am interested in setting up a neighborhood wifi network between myself and friends. presently i own an Asus Rt N66u router along with a Hawking Technology range booster but haven't been able to get sufficient range from this. is their any router or networking device that i can use to at least achieve like 1 mile network range and coverage,which should be more that sufficient to accommodate my networking needs?
I have a netgear WNR1000v2 which is on the other side of my house. There is about 70-80ft distance from it, and my desktop is on the top floor. Installing a LAN cable is not an option but a wireless bridge adapter is.I am looking for either:
im looking to buy some long range antennas to boost my wifi signal, i currently have a TPlink WR2543ND, which does a decent job in my house but id like to get some signal just outside my house if possible. Would this be better suited for a long range antenna or a wireless access point?
i am setting up a network between two houses. I have two Amped Wireless SR300 repeaters and currently I am getting so-so signal strength between the repeaters. To remedy this issue, I purchased two EnGenius EAG-2408 external antenna's.My question is how to calculate how high to mount the antenna. A formula is preferable because I do not know the exact distance off hand and I will have to go out there and measure. I am estimating approximately 75 to 100 yards for the distance. Its flat, with a few trees/brush.
-Transmit Power: Up to 20 dBm -Receiving Sensitivity: -93dBm
I just replaced my DIR-655 with a DHP-1320 since the constant microwave usage in our house whacks out our wireless during breakfast and dinner time. Now the PCs on the other side of the house are connected over a Home-Plug network.Is there a way to connect the DIR-655 to one of the Home-Plug ports on the distant side of the house to "extend" the wireless coverage there for our laptops? Presume this is a different scenario than creating a "bridge", "access point", or "extender" since the router would be connected back via Ethernet cable. There may be some overlap too in wireless coverage around the middle of the house. Ideally I'd like to use the same SSID.Has this ever been done before? What would I need to reconfigure on the DIR-655?
I've been looking around for quite some time and can't find a complete answer. I have a Linksys WRT54GL router handling my home wireless network located in the living room (let's call it 'Zone A').I have an ethernet cable running from that router to the other end of the house (let's call this one 'Zone B'), where the wi-fi signal is very weak. a. What is the technically correct way to have a strong wi-fi signal at Zone B (with the same SSID, key-phrase, etc.)? b. If I take another WRT54GL router, set the same SSID and key-phrase, disable its DHCP and plug it to the ethernet cable in Zone B - will that do the trick? I've tried the Linksys range extender at a friend's house and it turned out to be a big flop.
I am trying to set up a WAP4410n Wireless access point and add to my home network. One problem I can't seem to get around. The IP adress range setup does not accept 1 (example 192.168.1.245) as a range setup for IP address. How do i get in communication with the unit when I can't view the setup due to the factory default set as 192.168.1.245? If it were 192.168.0.245 I could easily change my routers IP range to include it.
how to properly configure 2 different hardware devices to extend the current wifi signal of my home network.I'm using a Motorola SBG6580 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem as my primary access point (AP) and a Netgear N300 DGN2200v1 ADSL2+ modem router which will function "behind" the SBG6580 in repeater mode. I previously had DSL for my internet connectivity but recently switched to broadband cable for faster speeds.Due to the layout of my home, I cannot physically connect the Netgear router to the Motorola modem via ethernet cable and need both devices to communicate wirelessly. I have already done extensive reading on this subject and best practices suggest that, whenever possible, both units should be the same brand/manufacturer. The Netgear appliance does have the capability of being configured as a repeater so if I don't have to buy a "network extender" that would be my preference.I understand that both units must be configured to have the same SSID, subnet, wireless channel and security encryption. In repeater mode the Netgear router can't be configured to use WPA2-PSK so I need to use WEP instead.
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."
suddenly my wireless network is not in range for my PC.....My tablet and my TV are connected wireless to the internet, through DIR 600, but my computer cannot see anymore my wireless network. I can see other wireless networks, from neighbors, but mine is not listed.If I connect my PC through a cable,I have internet access, but wireless is not working anymore...

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...

The TL-MR3220 takes a long time to identify the 3g modem and sometimes it will not identify it at all and says "unplugged". Sometimes "unplugged" suddenly apears after the modem has been identified and was working properly.Is this the normal behavior of this device ? Why ? What can be done ? I'm Using Alcatel X500D 3g modem.
The tablet worked perfectly till yesterday. Now I can not connect to wifi. It says "not in range". I tried forgetting the network, restarted the tablet, restarted the modem, tried putting the wifi network manually, but no success so far. It scans neighboring networks, but not mine. Android 4.0.3
I have 2 internet services with separate ISPs. My local telephone exchange is somewhat dated so the maximum speed per ISP/connection is about 1 Gbps. I have streaming radio services, I do quite a bit of file downloading and there multiple devices currently trying to share a single connection. I haven't been able to utilise the second connection because my NAS and print serving is all configured on the first connection and therefore unavailable to users/services on the second connection.My goal is to utilise the available capacity of both connections but at the same time allowing all network resources (file and printer sharing, NAS drives, etc.) to be available jointly to all network clients.
My first router is a Netgear RangeMax ADSL modem/wireless router (DG834PN). This connects directly to one ISP and has the NAS and printers attached. The second router is a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router (WNDR3400) which attaches to a Linksys ADSL 2 Gateway with 4-port switch (AG241 v2) and then to the second ISP.As an aside, I also have a number of Devolo devices for utilising the electrical circuit for networking purposes. I have a dLAN 200 AVmini adapter connected to the RangeMax router with 2 further dLAN 200 AVmini adapters and a dLAN 200 AV wireless N adapter distributed through my house.
I recently purchased a HP PHOTOSMART D110 wireless/eprint all in one. I have the dir-615 router and cannot get the printer to show up on my home network.Printer works fine hard wired to pc but wireless not at all. The ip address of the printer is 169.254.147.xx while everything on my network is 192.168.0.xx. Printer says connected for a few seconds then disconnected....I have tried to configure it on a vista and a win 7 machine.Everything else shows up fine on my network, as a matter of fact a friend brought his laptop over and it connected great..
I have a BT home hub 2.0A (BT is our ISP) it covers most of our house except for my bedroom. I have two spare routers i'm not using, one is a Speedtouch ST585 v6 and the other is a Belkin F5D7632-4 and was wondering if I could use these to extend the range of the home hub wirelessly. As far as I can tell I cannot install dd-wrt on any of these 3.
I have a Belkin NF5D8236-4 v3 as my main router. However, the signal range isn't the best throughout my home. After a little research and a tight budget, my thought is to purchase a Belkin N150 F9K1001 to serve as the primary router and then use the N F5D8236-4 v3 as an access point elsewhere in the house.I understand that the N150 cannot serve as an access point (hence the idea to use that as the primary), but that the N F5D8236-4 v3 can. Am I correct? Will my plan work? I can't spend much and a booster would cost more than the N150.
When I boot my system lately I have to fiddle with task manager to get things stable enough to connect to my network. This is getting very tiresome. I always find OdHost.exe taking almost all the CPU and have to kill it to get things running. This can't be normal and has not been until recently. I don't know of anything that has been installed in the last several months that is network related.
I have an Inspiron 1521 and while I can find and connect to a network easily and quickly; it takes 5 minutes or so for it to really work. My icon says it's "identifying the network". Is there anything I can do to speed up this process?
