New Office With Free Internet / How To Use A Network Printer
Nov 22, 2011
I have just moved into a new office and I have free internet, but I would like to set-up my network multi function printer in the same office.I don't have a router in my office I just have the socket (presumably from the building owners cabinet). Adding another network card.I tried removing the internet cable from my PC and setting up the printer by creating a TCP port but it didn't work. (I used to do this with my HP 1050tn).RouterI tried adding a router but that didn't work either.
I use vpn to connect to another organization from my office and on the same network where my printer resides, if i logon to the vpn printing to my local printer becomes a problem, I can also print to my local printer.
i am having problem adding the officejet printer that was uninstalled because it was not working. after three days of online support from HP and Lynksys, I am about to buy a new printer. Can't add printer wirelessly or wired.
I was just wondering how to connect 3 laptops to 1 printer in my office?We don’t have a server and all laptop contacted to internet wireless through a router next door. (I don’t have access to that router)I was thinking to get a hub and then connect it to the Ethernet cable back of the printer and then connect it to each laptop?
I have a cable modem in the basement and ethernet lines to two offices upstairs.I have a 4-port wireless router and a 5-port switch. I have a computer in each office and a NAS in one of the two offices.There is no direct wiring between the offices. I want to have internet access and access to the NAS from both offices. Will the following configuration work without having to go to Static IPs? 1) Modem01-> Router01->Switch01->Computer01; 2) Modem01->Router01->Switch01->NAS01; 3) Modem01->Router01->Computer02. If not, what needs to change?
I have 4 computers (3 laptops, 1 desktop) in a shared office. We get internet access using their wireless network. All works fine. However, I need to share a printer amongst all of the computers. The printer is LAN enabled and I would normally just put all the PCs on a hub, together with the printer and share it that way. BUT my question is can we access the internet using the wireless network and the printer using a separate wired network at the same time?
I'm newbie in Networking. I want to establish a small WLAN network where all the laptops (6 laptops) can use WiFi Internet and also can print via a network printer.I have these hardwares:1: DSL Modem2: A Belkin F5D8233-4 300 Mbps router3: A Network printer (with RJ45 ethernet port, Not wireless printer)4: LAN Cable (if needed)5: Finally 6 Client Laptops
I have 2 desktops (running windows 7), a Canon MF8300 printer, and an outgoing ethernet line, all on a Netgear Advanced Cable Modem Gateway CGD24-CPR. I'm only concerned with having the 2 desktops set up with the Canon printer.Both computers have been connected to the printer before and I have the startup disk. But once the new offices were set up and both of the desktops were moved, I can no longer access or find the printer.
I can IPconfig the Desktops for their IPV4 addresses and both desktops recognize eachother on a Homegroup, but I can't find the printer. I printed off the print configuration page from the printer which gave me an IP address (printer is set for auto-obtain), but using an IP search won't bring up the printer.All of the devices are plugged into ethernet ports set up for the three different office they are in and the actual location of the Netgear cable modem/router is over 100 feet away. My primary concern is getting the printer for the desktops, but I also need to add a wireless router into one of those office in the future.
I wonder if there is a free programme that will let me look at network traffic/activity on my network, i'm having real issues with with access and the slow down of the network. Unfortunately my switches are not managed.
I would like to set up a free wireless network in our local church hall for the local teenagers to use on the way home from school.We have an ADSL router and an office computer that we would need to keep secure.Obviously we'll need a wireless hub, but keeping the public wireless separate from the Ethernet connected PC is essential.
I want to connect to the Internet small office where docsis (internet over tv cable) is used as WAN.For similar tasks but other WANs (adsl, dial-up) I used 800 series. But now I can't find anything in this series to solve my issue. There is 815 but it has no wi-fi.
I can use cable modem that my ISP gave to me: this modem acts as bridge so I can use router with FE-based WAN but it is better to have one device instead of two.
I am on the lookout for free dynamic DNS for top level domain name such as example.com
There seem to be quite a few free dynamic DNS providers for third level domain but I am having trouble finding one for top level domain. I am almost on the verge of actually mapping the top level domain to a CNAME of a third level domain with dynamic DNS but I really don't want to do that.
I have configured my DIR-605L for no security. I want to provide free wireless internet for the guests that come to my house. How do I insure that guests connecting wirelessly to the 605 can access the internet only and can NOT hack into the computers on my internal house network?
I have a problem where clients cannot roam between Cisco 1231g-e-k9 and recently installed cisco 1242g-e-k9 access points.. On looking at the CDP option on the 1231 and 1242 access points they are all aware of each other. However if I use the Network View option I see a different picture. All the 1231 access points can see each other but not see the 1242's. Network View on the1242 shows all the 1231's but none of the 1242's. The 1231 are running ver. 12.3(8)JEB and the 1242's are running ver. 12.4(21a)JA1.
I own a Dell XPS M1330 laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, service pack 1) that is about three and a half years old. I realize this Dell model has been discontinued. Work with me here. I STRONGLY believe after 6+ hours of personal troubleshooting that the laptop model is NOT the problem. I have lived at the same apartment complex the entire time I have owned this laptop. Up until a month ago when a new management company (the third one I’ve had) took over, I was able to use the free WiFi they offer at the office and the laundry room without one single speck of a problem weekly for YEARS. Suddenly I am getting: Unidentified Network: No Internet Connection with a public park bench (which it is a public network, I suppose) and a “!” over my perfect five bar signal. Therefore, we can rule out signal strength as the problem. I have a Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mino-Card, the card that came pre-installed with the laptop when I bought it brand new. Also, I know the Dell Wireless Card WLAN Utility is installed on this computer but I’ve always used Windows Network and Sharing Center to control the WiFi network I am connected to. I saw something somewhere about this maybe being the problem but since I’ve never used it I don’t think it has anything to do with my problem…
Talk about the router will be brief as it is my apartment complex they will not allow me access to the router so I know virtually nothing other than it is a Cisco wireless router, there are three office computers connected to it that run the internet just fine, and DCHP is enabled on both my laptop and the router (I may or may not have snuck in against their wishes to figure this one out…).
Also noteworthy are two things. One: I can connect to about a dozen other public WiFi networks around the city malls, coffee shops, bookstores, the college campuses, ECT. So connecting to WiFi is not the problem, this WiFi network specifically is (AKA. My NIC is NOT dead). I can also connect to my boyfriend’s private network at his house. The second thing worth noting is that once, I got the manager to cave and re-set the router for me. It connected! I re-started my computer and it still connected! I took my laptop back to my apartment, brought it back re-booted an hour late and it still connected! The next morning; back to the same old annoying problem. I asked him if they did ANYTHING with the computers at night and he said no.
As I stated, I have 6+ hours of troubleshooting pre-done on this problem. I have tried what I am able to with no access to the router (okay, maybe I snuck in and did a couple more things…) including:
Re-start laptop. Re-start router. Disable all firewalls/virus protection programs/ect. Connect to the internet in Safe Mode. Disable Bonjour. Uninstall wireless card/re-install wireless card/un-install drivers/re-install drivers/update drivers. Reset the TCP/IP stack.
My current IT people are so expensive, I am determined to hook up a new laptop to my office network if it destroys me (wirelessly). I have the office network map with all usernames, passwords, and IP addresses...but I can't figure it out. Can someone give me a step by step for dummies to save me the several hundred or should I just bite the bullet? (I am the business owner and seems like we add laptops every year or so and desktops and would really love to finally understand)
my customer has FreeRadius, and I'm trying to get the server to assign a network admin role to a 5K running 5.0.3 code.This is based on the example given in this document: url...The server authenticates the user name, but will only put the user into the network operator role. This is confirmed by checking the output of show user-account and debug security user-db.The Radius test using the same credentials passes the authentication test. I'm sure the problem is that the N5K dosent understand the VSA format of the attribute, and that this is a simple syntax problem.
My current set-up is: my laptop connects to the coaxial outlet with a cable so I can access the internet. So I can't really bring it somewhere else since the cable is short.
Now, I am planning to buy 2 more computers and a printer. The printer will be shared by all 3 computers. what else I need to buy (modem?? wireless router??) and what type. I also request that you let me know how to set it up. Of course, I will follow the manufacturer's instructions.
I would like to connect my three pcs together so that they can all make use of the printers, scanners, internet etc in my office space. i also need to be able to access this lot from a remote laptop so that i can continue to work from home. i would like to store all my data in one place that was easily accessible from every PC and my laptop.
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:
1 MFP currently on lease connected via network 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.
I have a very high speed connection in my dad's office, and it is over 10 mbps. and the connection in my house is worse ( 256 kbps ). So can I use the office connection in home without any problems from the ISP. just like sharing the connection from the office to home.
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.
I have 2 older xp pro tough books that connect to my domain via a pair of versa vx 400 access points. automobile technicians use these computers to communicate with cars via a separate wireless card and WiFi device (SPX MVXI) that broadcasts a wireless signal.they always connect just fine to the network but sometimes they drop there connection and don't rejoin which screws up my scheduled tasks (nightly upload). They will reacquire the connection every time if i select it again manually in the windows wireless config.here is what I have done so far
1. set up exclusion range in DHCP distribution on my DC
2. set the laptops up with static IP's within the exclusion range.
3. configured the laptops to auto connect to the network even when its not broadcasting
4. set the access points on channel 7, and the devices on 1 and 11.
I have done a lot of research on this issue, a rep from versa told me that Intel proset wireless isn't very compatible with there product which i this is BS since it does the same with with the netgear WiFi PC cards.
I have a wireless router (D-Link DIR-625) connected to the modem for our high speed DSL. I have two Brother MFC printers, one is a laser (MFC-9420CN) connected w/ a Cat-5 directly to the router, the other is an ink-jet MFC-6490CN and I would like to use it wireless....but I could connect it to the router if I need to.I have wireless connection to the internet, from my HP 32-bit PC (running Vista-Ultimate), but can not see either of the printers on the network, and cannot print to either. I manually configured both to have an IP within the range of my network, but they still do not work.The problem (I think) could be with the IPCONFIG. (I had no problem last year, but we recently had a few power outages, and now the PC doesn't seem to 'see' any of the printers.) I checked the IPCONFIG. it states 'media disconnected', but I can ping the one wireless printer??? I can not ping the laptop on the network or the laser printer (I confirmed it's ipconfig before pinging).
I know the network card can't be bad, or I couldn't get to the router to access the internet. I also went into the cmd prompt as the administrator and did the /release/renew/all but that didn't work either.
I presently have a fiber internet connection to my office with about 40 wireless users on a single AP. The connection keeps dropping. Probably due to too many users on a single AP?
1. My question is similar to aniketchitale's, can get another wireless router, create a different SSID (eg. router1 and router2), but both wireless routers still connected to the same fiber connection. In other words, I would like to segregate the first 20 users to router 1 and the next 20 users to router 2.
2. By having 2 wireless routers each with their unique SSID, will all the users still be able to access to the same printer in the office?
