Is there a free version of a program that would allow to find out an IP address of a person on an IM (gg, msn messenger and others)?Is there a firewall I could use for this? [URL]but it doesn't seem to work...? To access image log you need ... file name, folder and password. For file name do I put extension too? and for folder what do i put?
I have a Asus EEE PC 900 laptop running Windows XP Home. I DO NOT use a modem or router. I connect wireless to someones network (which of course i dont know who it is or how far it is from me) I connect to a Linksys unsecured network. I get good to very good (some times excellent connection from it) The name of my adapter is: Atheros AR5007EG wireless network adapter.Two days ago i was on the internet, and all of a sudden i Lost service ( usually when this happens i wait it out and it comes back)But it hasn't.So I'm checking through my settings and i noticed that im sending way more network packets than receiving. Last i checked it was around 40,000 sent and 5 received. So I wait and wait and wait and the most packets it would go up to is 90 while as sending is still in the thousands.It also says im successfully connected with good to very good connection status (but yet i cannot surf the web because i do not have enough network packets)
I tried different locations in my house (that didnt work)I uninstall and reinstalled my network adaptor (that didnt work)I turned off and on the wireless switch(that didn't work). Im wondering if this has something to do with my laptop or the other persons network? how can I increase the received network packets?
I write here to see if some kind soul can not solve my problem (which is common to seeso many people around the world). problem: I have a mail server (192.168.1.17) configured static NAT because it is accessible byPublic IP (PPP.PPP.PPP.PPP). Everything works properly from the outside, but if I get my Mail server (on port 443) from the internal network (192.168.1.xxx) there 'verse. This configuration is called Nat inside-to-inside is done by default by some SOHO routers(such as the TPLINK from 25 euros) but Cisco did not succeed. I search on the internet for 2 days without a get nowhere. PS: I have a Cisco 1801 router. (or 1941 as another router).
I recent bought an Asus G74SX-A1. While the machine runs like an absolute dream, it does seem to have a networking problem that I have been attempting to address for about a week. In my college dorm there is an ethernet port that carries an active internet connection. When my laptop is plugged into the port via ethernet, I receive no connection (well mostly no connection, every now and then I will connect for a split second allowing me to load my homepage, Google). This problem also exists on my dorm's WiFi. My LAN card is a RealTek BGE Family Controller (PCIe)
However, on my netbook (an Asus 1000HE, which I am typing this post on) everything is fine. I am quick to blame the retailer who sold me the G74SX seeing as they replaced the stock WiFi card with a Bigfoot Killer 1102 card, and my first assumption is that something was not installed properly during my laptop's assembly or that I simply messed up a driver update. I became quite frustrated with the whole situation and in order to find a quick solution I formatted the laptop back to factory defaults.
Something magical happened.For about a day and a half, my LAN card worked. I packed up my gear this weekend and headed back home, and at my parents' house my WiFi card worked wonderfully.I thought my networking woes were behind me, but this was not the case. When I returned to my dorm this afternoon, my LAN and WiFi cards began experiencing the same problems they experienced before the reformat. A third variable of some interest is that I brought my wireless router back to my dorm in order to utilize a less-crowded private WiFi spot and discovered that it worked fine and I was able to connect to the internet on my iPad using my router. This evening, however, my router decided to stop carrying an internet connection as well. I can connect to the router itself, but I cannot receive an internet connection, even on the netbook.
I have tried uninstalling/updating drivers for both the Bigfoot card and the RealTek card to no avail. My best hypothesis is that the problem lies in some setting that both the G74SX and the D-Link DIR-655 have in common, seeing as they are the only wired components that aren't receiving a connection.
Equipment: D-Link DIR-655, Asus G74SX, Asus EeePC 1000HE
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 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.
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?
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.
No Network connection after Office 2010 install, I have limmited or no connectivity. I've removed and reloaded drivers, reset router, performed a netsh flush, tried to manually connect, kicked it, threw something at the wall and still no luck.
I have one HP Desktop that decided one day it doesnt want to connect to the internet.
On the network we have two HP desktops (wired), one Dell desktop (wired) and 2 dell laptops (wireless) all connected to a wireless D-Link DIR 655 router . All computers are running Windows XP. All are able to connect to the internet except one HP desktop (only recently).
I have tried connecting the HP desktop in question to the wireless router via a different cable and still no connectivity. I tried disabling and renabling the internet/repairing it to no avail. I've restarted the wireless router and modem. Nothing. I've even tried restarting the computer (who knows it's solved problems before).
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.
We currently have a 3/3 Etherloop. We dont have any internal IT as we are still small and while not a networking guy I can at least understand what is going on. Right now at peaks we are hitting 100% utilization.
We run a call center in house so I am trying to determine at the very least how much of this traffic is from voice data compared to everything else.Was running through our networking configuration and it just seems off to me. The following is the flow.
-Etherloop Demarcation > -Cisco Integrated Access Device > -D-Link DIR 655 Wireless Router > -24port HP Procurve switch > -24port HP Procruve switch >
Everything up to the first switch is a single line. The first switch has all ports running out except 1 which goes to the second switch. The second switch runs out to machines as well.
I am at the networking level where I understand a switch but have no idea what the IAD really does between the etherloop modem and the wireless router.
For some reason I feel like the router should not be setup in that manner and should be off of the switch. With the cisco IAD running directly to the first switch. So my 2 big questions are.
1. Does this setup even make sense.
2. Whats the easiest way to monitor traffic, at the very least it would be nice to see real time up/down and be able to log in. Then I guess using ports figure out what is being used by voice. My first guess was just putting a machine between the IAD and first switch and monitor and log the traffic.
My office just moved to a bigger location, and we are having trouble with network connectivity.
Current layout: Modem --- Wired-----> 2wire 5012NV ------wired/wireless----> PCs
The 2wire is at one end of the office, and PCs at the other end experience poor wireless connectivity.I'm thinking of using a spare WRT54G2 in "bridged" mode, to extend the Ethernet, and wireless of the main router.
For wired bridging, I understand that that the WRT54G2 will do, is act as a "port multipler", where 1 port from the 2wire can be multiplied into 4. I also want the wrt54g2's wireless to extend the Ethernet connection (not extend the wireless connection).
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 am puzzled about some problems that occured at my work place. Unmanaged switch like D-link & Linksys was used and it worked pretty fine only for certain areas of the factory. Then office with more workers will be using managed switch to ensure the workers have decent connection to the local server.
Question is, why are some small offices' connection so ridiculously slow?
The switches manage 4PCs
Tested - The main connection cable cannot go through the switch to distribute the connection. Even if there is only 1 PC linked to the switch, it will still be slow. It will be at it's max if it didnt go through the switch, but directly to the PC instead.
True enough that unmanaged switch aren't smart enough to allocate the speed, but why is it possible for some other part of the small office to have fast connection even by using the normal unmanaged switch?
