I have installed the netgear N900 dual band which is 99� and is working fine on 2.45ghz because I have a belkin g range extender as my house is very long. So everything is working and my computer works but every so often the Internet drops so the modem needs turned on and off to get back on the Internet even though my computer says its connected but not loading any pages. It works fine for a while then sometimes drops, it works fine until I use my Mac books or iMac but works fine with iPhones? What can I do ?
I have finally got netgear adapter to connect to router, and its connected, but not able to access any webpages. I am not receiving any bytes back. I had to manually type in a IP address, as it was not picking it up automatically. I have other devices connected to the router (laptop, ipad, iphones) and access web easily. I have tried hard resets, and shut downs all with no avail
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?
There are plenty of instructions to configure USB storage but there are no instructions on how to use it, specifically. Ok, so I have my ftp address, user name and password and tried to connect with Filezilla on my local network. Unable to connect. Also, the USB device does not even show up in Network settings. However, I am able to see the device as a media server from Sony Playstation.
Every day around the same time the SSID for my wireless network disappears. I'm using a Netgear wnr2000v3. Prior to this I was using a Linksys router, which did the same thing... only more frequently (2-3 times a day).Between smartphones and laptops, there are about 6 devices connected to the network. They all lose their connection and cannot find the broadcasted SSID when this happens.Because it happens around the same time each day, it makes me think that it has something to do with the DHCP lease, which is 24 hours. Just a thought, as I don't really know how that works.
I have basically the following setup: It's a home network, running with a Netgear WNDR3700 wireless router.
Wireless Devices on the Network: Google Nexus One: 802.11 b/g/n iPhone (Original): 802.11 b/g Main Workstation Laptop: 802.11 a/b/g "Beater/Other" Laptop: 802.11g b/g
Ethernetted devices on the network: Logitech Revue: CAT-5e
I'm running both the 2.4 GHz and the 5.0 GHz networks over the same SSID. The goal, obviously, is to get everything over to N if possible. I've heard that wireless N has much better signal and transfer rates, is this true? Also, is running the two different frequencies with the same SSID problematic? It's kind of strange, because my Nexus One is having a difficult time staying connected to the network in my office while the main workstation laptop in the same room is getting a much better signal.
What's interesting is that both are running on the 2.4 GHz networks, essentially both not on the wireless n network, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of things. Is it bad to run both the 2.4 and 5.0 GHz networks with the same SSID? If using a network repeater, is it bad to rebroadcast the original network with the same SSID as the source network? It seems that the 5.0 GHz network is getting "clobbered" by the 2.4 GHz network. Is it really necessary for me to broadcast using different SSIDs?
I have been having a heck of a time getting my gigabit network working off of either my new router, or 2 older ones. Since my house is wired with cat5 cables, I was thinking about putting an 8port router in my networking box that is tucked away in the corner of the house, and then using my new Dlink 857 router as just an access point in a more optimal location in the house.
My questions are as follows:
Would be slower for either the wireless internet speed or the speed of file transfers between the wired computers?
Would I be able to transfer files both ways from the NAS that would be hard wired to the 8-port router? Is there any benefit/disadvantage to my idea that I have not thought of? I know it is possible, but do I want to do it?
Internet----->Cable Modem --------->Wired Router --------> Xbox/NAS/PS3/Smart Player/Dlink Router set as Access Point
I am looking to expand my network. I purchased a WD N900 router to replace my old Linksys E1200 .The internet connection is coming from the modem, into the WD N900 Router. The WD N900 has the printer hooked up to it, and 3 NAS, a computer and our magic jack. I ran 30 feet of network cable and routed the cable through the walls into the section of the house. I am looking to use my old Linksys E1200 to extend my network. I want to hook up the gaming systems (PS3, XBOX360) as well as the entertainment receiver to my Linksys router. What is the best setup? I am looking to be able to access the NAS from the WD N900 on our PS3 and Xbox360 so LAN-LAN looks like the way to go. I tried using the directions on Linksys site, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I test the network cable I ran through the walls, and it is getting a good signal. However when I hook it up to the Linksys E1200 and connect my lap top the Linksys E1200 to test it isn't working.
I just set up a linksys n900. On one of the laptops that have vista it doesn't connect to the internet. The odd thing is when I first hooked up up it seemed to work fine than a day later it just stopped. All other computers are fine and if I try to connect to another network it works fine. Just when I try my home network it has issues.
I need configuring my N900 router to be able to use Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection to get into my computer from a client's location. I also want to be able to host websites I'm developing so my clients can see the changes before publishing to their website. I have not been able to find anywhere what settings to set to what in order for these two things to be available to me.
My phone is a Nokia-N900, and I find the most useful way to interact with it from my PC is by ssh. Luckily it is possible to switch out the usb-networking module in the devices kernel to make it appear to windows as a generic RNDIS gadget. Plugging it into a windows PC I can now ssh into it, I can open an sftp session, everything works perfectly...
Except I can't access the web. I can't view other network resources. I look in the network connections section in the control panel and see my two connections, but I don't see any way to set which one to use for what. Seeing as I only use usb0 for ssh and eth0 for everything else, it seems I need a way to set it up so that usb0 only gets port 22 or something similar.
Is there any way to achieve this, or another method by which I could leave my phone connected to my Pc while using it for other network tasks?
I am trying long distance to set up above router. Router communicates fine with laptop and wifi printer but when she tries to connect her iphone (I think iphone4), phone states that password is incorrect. She is using the same password that she used for the printer and laptop which is the router default one which is a series of mixed numbers and letters.
I recently upgraded my router because my last cisco router was having a misdirect issue. Type in facebook and you get an invalid URL and would have to reset the router to get it to work. Now I bought a new Cisco router and am regretting it. The n900 was a pretty penny and now ALL my videos are always buffering. I have several computers connected, but not active. The internet is painfully slow with the new router, but lightning fast with out it.
Currently using my laptop secuirty settings are IPv6/ and 4 SPI Firewall Protection: Enabled WPA2/WPA mixed mode.
I have tried everything: Rebooting, up to date firmware, resetting, What should I do next? Disable some of its advanced features? Cisco is earning a bad rap with me if a router that boasts high internet speeds makes all my videos buffer and load painfully slow. Let alone getting through all the commercials on the internet now.
I have my all my computers, printers setup with a wireless network with dsl modem connected to linksys wireless router. I just signed up with comcast with another wireless router. I do not want to reconfigure all the laptops and printers with the new comcast wireless SSID. Is there a way I can connect the linksys router with existing SSID with the comcast router and using the internet speed of comcast. (note. will disconnect service with dsl)
The router is a N Wireless Router. When I try to connect to my router through my phone the SSID appears as belkin.2lc and it won't connect but says authorizing then disconnected. The weird thing is that my laptop and all my roommates laptops and my Xbox can all see the routers real SSID and connect.just fine. I've tried restarting the router and my phone. I've also checked my router settings and made sure their is no MAC address enabled.
I'm trying to setup 2 VLAN's 1 for Native Traffic on my Corp network and another VLAN for Guest Wireless traffic. I have attached the Config from my Cisco AP1231 and my Cisco 3750. I have the AP plugged into port 24 on my switch. I seem to have the VLAN's working fine. I can get the AP1231 to broadcast both SSID's and the very first time i can connect everything seems to work fine. after i power down my switch and AP i cannot connect to either SSID. I get the message Not Connected.
I have a Cisco 5500 Series Wireless LAN Controller Model No. AIR-CT5508-K9
I have HREAP groups in Boulder, CO, Boston, MA, and Amsterdam, NL.
The LWAPPS act perfectly in the states (all AIR-LAP1142N-A-K9). The unit AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9 in Amsterdam will not allow any clients to attach unless the SSID broadcasting. I don't want to broadcast SSID. I have used iPhones and Intel 5100 series wlan cards. I don't get it. I have been working with Cisco for weeks. We have even replaced the LWAPP.
I am getting this from the ASA in Amsterdam:
6 Aug 03 2011 20:20:22 PMTU-D packet 1485 bytes greater than effective mtu 1426, dest_addr=wificontroller, src_addr=LWAP, prot=UDP
I don't understand because the mtu on the outside interface is 1500 I guess "effective" is the key word which I missing here.
I have Issues with Wifi radius Autentication.we uses cisco 1140AG access point, which is used in Standalone mode issue we face is,only Several Laptops not able to connect to wifi , But in all laptops SSID "wether" is broadcasting. signal strength is full. But it was not able to connect,If AP settings are wrong then all clients should not connect, since few clients connected it ruled out AP config errors,We uses ( WPA - Enterprise + tkip ) settings , clients mostly windows 7.Windows 7 settings also cannot be wrong, since it is globally pushed via GPO for same Wifi settings.i totally cant understand this scenario.when i checked the radius logs, i am not able to see any logs for the client since it is not associating, SSID is fully broadcasting in Laptop with full coverage. but just not connecting..
i'm using win7 and linux mint in my laptop. when i'm on linux i 'm able to connect in a specific ssid with my b43 driver. when i switch back to windows(broadcom a/b/g) i can not connect to this ssid-there is a yellow mark with limited connection. what do you think? is this a driver problem with win7. or win 7 driver has ''less power'' than linux's?
actually, i have 2wire DSL Router and i am using SSID Broadcast Disable after disable i can't connect wireless to my extra device too for example my Blackberry. but i am using another computer with wireless but i can't connect blackberry and iphone i don't have more idea in wireless stetting what can i do?
I am having a LOT of trouble with an HP 6500A Plus wireless printer.It has been working wirelessly with my X2000 using WPA2 Personal encryption. (The WPA2 key has NOT been changed since it was working)It has recently stopped working and I cannot see why.All other devices (Wii, two iPads, 1 iPhone) all continue to work faultlesly.I have tried numerous times to reset the WPA2 security key on the HP Printer but each time it fails to connect to the X2000.It does recognize the SSID. But will not connect.I tried to turn on the LOG in the X2000 to see what information I could gather, but nothing get put into the Security Log. Maybe I am setting it up wrong, using "wireless" then "Log", then "enabled", then "view log", select "Security Log". attempt to connect from the HP Printer... twice, then refresh the log on the X2000, and NOTHING.
I have a WAP4410n which has been configured with a single SSID since implementation several weeks ago with no issues. I am now trying to add a second SSID and not having any success. Originally the second SSID was not being assigned a MAC address and thus not being broadcasted. After upgrading firmware to 184.108.40.206 I now see a MAC address associated with second SSID and it is being seen by clients, but they still cannot connect. I reset the AP to default settings and reconfigured from scratch but still no luck. I have two of these APs, the other one is still at FW rev 220.127.116.11 and has same issue (it does have MAC address associated with second SSID so I didn't bother upgrading firmware yet).
I have tried a few different authetication options, including disabling authentication, to no avail. Question - I do not see an IP address associated with the second SSID - is that the problem and if so, how do I fix that?
I would like to connect the AP541N to the RV220W and use the same SSID assigned to both throughout the office, for seemless client movement. I would like to keep the AP541N connected via the internet cable, as it will be on a switch which is on the same segment. The access point has many different configuration methods available, but the router appears to only have WDS as an option to connect the two devices. I would rather not use the WDS feature on the AP, as I want to utilize as much bandwidth available as possible, and I assume using that method I would need to remove the ethernet cable from the switch.
Is it as simple as configuring both devices with identical VLAN settings? I am preconfiguring the devices before installing them, as to minimize downtime, so would like to make sure the configuration is correct.
I have configure my AP with to SSID (11 & 12), but I cannot connect to 12. It authenticates, and while trying to acquire IP address from 12, it fails and connects me to 11 (if I have already saved the SSID connection).
The following is my AP status:Product/Model Number:AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 System Software Filename:c1200-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEE System Software Version:12.3(8)JEE Bootloader Version:12.3(2)JA4
The SSID 12 already have 4 clients connected, And I am tring to connect a 5th one (smart phone), but cannot connect to 12, instead coneected to 11. Also tried with a laptop, but cant get the IP address, and give Limited Connectivity error.
I've had my E3000 for almost a year now and it's been great - until recently. Latencies have become patchy for some users and most surprisingly, the 5GHz network has stopped using two channels. I did a 30/30/30 reset on it a few minutes ago and re-configured the whole thing. It's set to use 40MHz Only and WPA2 Personal, but speeds at the physical layer are still just 144 Mbps and in the web interface's Status page it clearly says "20 MHz".
Why might this be? It was fine for so long, only to refuse to use two channels now. I've checked what the other wireless networks in my area are like, and none of them are even 5GHz-capable as far as I can tell, so the relevant spectrum shouldn't be overcrowded. It's rather nice to have the two channels for NAS transfers and streaming and such.
After manually specifying a base channel (48 at the moment), it actually kicks into 40MHz. The problem is now that my clients, both using a WUSB600N, are getting "Unable to connect to (SSID)" pretty much instantly after clicking the network in Windows.
