I'm going to pick up an Asus N66U, and I need to be able to run some cables from it, through the attic to some range extending devices in the attic at opposite sides of the house.Basically I want to connect some devices to the router that will amplify/broadcast signal further.Massively cheaper than the asus antenna, specs look good, except for not supporting the 5ghz dual band, how is it otherwise?
going to be setting up my cable modem and Asus RT-N66U router in my basement in the work room/laundry room. My townhouse is 3 stories tall so just in case I wanted to look at my options for a range extender or repeater.
I have a friend with a very large area to cover with internet.He already has a Belkin F5D7634-4 wireless modem router.Connected to this is a Belkin F5D7132 wired as an access point using an ethernet cable and adapter. Working perfectly.I need to add a second Belkin F5D7132 wired as an access point using an ethernet cable and adapter. This is to give coverage in another area of the building.My problem is this:-Both access points work perfectly on their own.
Router - IP 192.168.2.1 Wired access point 1 - IP 192.168.2.256 Wired access point 2 - IP 192.168.2.250 Router + Wired access point 1 = WORKS Router + Wired access point 2 = WORKS
Router + Wired access point 1 + Wired access point 2 = NOTHING WORKS (router goes bonkers and all the lights flash very fast)What do I need to change to get them all to work together?I have spent an hour on the phone to Belkin support, they took me through the steps to install a wireless range extender.
I recently moved into a larger 2 story house, and for the first few months I was using a Linksys E1000 I've had for about 2 years now. It's a fine single band router, but the people upstairs and the xbox/PS3 in the living room didnt have the strongest connection.
I shopped around and finally got a ASUS RT-N66U for a really good, strong dual band router that would supposedly give better range and performance than my old E1000.
Unfortunately, since I got it everyone is having issues they never had before, namely:Signal dropping all around the house and having to search for the network much slower performance than before the xbox/PS3 cant hold a stable connection even for a few minutes now, when before you could watch Netflix HD programs easily
I've upgraded the Firmware to 188.8.131.52.178 since I heard earlier firmwares had issues, but other than that and opening my ports for qTorrent it is relatively stock settings.
I have purchased, the Asus RT-n66u twice, the Linksys ea4500, and the ea3500. With all 3 of these [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]routers[/COLOR][/COLOR] I am able to set them up just fine the internet works fine, and then come the connection drops. It doesnt matter if I'm wired or wireless, the internet connection will not be stable for more than 5-10 mins a time. I called ASUS tech support and thier stumped too. Firmware is not a factor as Ive updated them for all 3 routers. I'm using a ping monitor to see how much it drops. In the last 40 mins it dropped 12 times with a wired connection and typically takes 45-90 secs to come back up.
The interesting thing is that my current router a Linksys E2000 is working just fine and is routing 12 wireless devices with no loss of connectivity. I wanted to upgrade to a router with a longer range, but out of the 3 I tried so far none work. So I'm ruling out that its an issue with my ISP or the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Arris[/COLOR][/COLOR] modem that came with comcast becuase thats been up for weeks.
I need a router for gaming on my Xbox 360. When gaming I use a wired connection. All my heavy dl/streaming on my laptop will be wired as well. When I'm gaming no other traffic is on the network, meaning my laptop is turned off. The only time I use my laptop wireless is for browsing when I'm not close enough to the router and modem to go wired.
I was thinking of getting the ASUS RT-N66U. I'm fine with the price if I can't find a quality, reliable router that would meet my needs for less.
I switch the ports between my laptop and PS3 whenever I go to my room, but now that I'm setting up another system downstairs, I'll need more Ethernet ports. Everything is running on a Gigabit network, and I'd like to keep it that way. What I'm thinking is adding this:
Do I set it up like this? Modem > Router > Switch > Other Stuff. I'm guessing I only connect one port on my router to the switch, but can I use the other 3 ports on the router or do I have to use the ports on the switch? If what I am thinking is correct, any better recommendation for a switch? I'd prefer a square-rack mount- ish type so I can have my modem and router on top of it.
currently i have my server computer in room a, and i have 2 computers in room b. my current setup is.Server---ethernet cable-----router-----modem, for the computers in room b, the setupis.......computers-------ethernet router----ethernet wire-----router----modem.if i remove the switch in room b, then the computer in room b can communicate with the server computer, if i keep the ethernet router then i cant connect to my server. i need the computers in room b to be wired but there is only 1 wire in the room, so that is y i added the ethernet router. how can i get the server to connect to the computers in room b with the ethernet router?
My main wifi router is a Asus N66U My ethernet router is a dlink dir 130
I have recently purchased an asus rt-n66u dual band gigabit router. What are the best settings for wireless gaming? The wireless adaptor I'm using is an asus usb-n53 dual band. Do I need to set it for auto mode or n only? and 20 or 40 mhz or 20/40 combined? do I need aes/tkip encryption or just aes?
I'm currently in the market for a new router that supports remote IPSec VPN access to my home network. The router must support wireless (latest "n" standard is a plus) and must have gigabit links for LAN at least. I have been considering the following two routers but neither has an IPSec VPN server built in to the router OS:
ASUS RT-N66U MikroTik RB2011UAS-2HnD-IN
As far as I can tell they both have PPTP server functionality and only IPSec pass-through. I would like a router that has the server ability built in to the OS so I won't have to run an additional system behind my network edge. I can also look into any small to medium size business routers, just as long as it supports a majority of the same features of the two routers I have listed for comparison.
Just purchased an N66U router and loving it so far. The only problem I'm having is that iTunes is not seeing the shared library I setup on the router. I have a usb drive plugged into it and have set the options to use that drive and the itunes server is turned on. I've rebooted the router many times, removed the drive and put it back in. Turned of settings and turned back on. Nothing works. iTunes does see my PC's shared library just fine.
if there is a stable or if the current website offered version of DDWRT is stable and working good on Asus Rt-N66U router?
I really want to work with some of the features like VLAN etc... on this firmware. I am no stranger to the software but I want to be sure I am not going to burn up my router or cause it to frag due to incomplete software
I suppose the bottom line is that I'm debating between the r6300 and the ASUS RT-N66U. know the Netgear recently got new firmware with beam forming that supposedly increases performance significantly. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find even any anecdotal stories of just how much of a performance gain it gave the router.
I purchased an apple airport extreme router to replace a linksys wireless G router. I have 2 linksys REl000 wireless N range extenders on tv and laptop. The router is working and sending out a signal, but the signal is not coming through the range extenders.
trying to put my RT-n66U in wifi repeater mode or bridge mode as i have only one lan cable and no wifi adapter where i connect n66u dark knight and my pc . and connect the modem n10e and rt66u,setting up rt66u was pretty easy but i cant give my modem the repeaters mac as there's no WDS management interface in the modem, how would i do it, is there any other way to bridge between wireless routers?
Some background: We live in a 3-story 3,700 sq. foot home. Office is in bottom front corner of the 1st floor. We have a Linksys WRT54GS router (I know!) paired with a cable modem. We have a desktop wired to the router, a plasma TV across the room connected to the cable and a PS3. We also have an iPad, two iPhones, and a MacBook Air (2012), plus whatever devices guests bring into the house.
We have trouble streaming on devices on 2nd and 3rd floors on the opposite side of house from the office. Plan on adding a NAS in near future, primarily as a local backup and to share pictures, music, movies, etc.Not sure if one of the routers above is the way to go for whole house coverage? Seems like the AC version is probably way beyond our needs, but not sure. Is there a cheaper way to go than either that will still provide the coverage we need for a large house?
Does the CPU speed make any difference?I'm reading that the Asus offers great Wifi Coverage - which is nice cause both the wife and myself use the laptops a fair bit.. However - most of my devices are currently on a wired setup..through a belkin 1gbit powerline setup.I run a NAS for storage - a separate machine for media serving, 2x ps3s for media streaming a seagate HD+ media player + a sonos bridge and my desktop on the wired setup..As for wireless normally I'd have 3 Androids along with 2 laptops & 5 sonos players...
I might have been talking rubbish there - I was sure I'd read somewhere that the Asus unit had a whopping 1gb ram installed vs. the 256mb of the Linksys/Cisco ea4500 - however looking at the specs again, both read @256mb.
My TP-Link 8817 which is connected to my ASUS RT-N66u appears to be blocking my ports. I port forwarded on my router to set up a server. I do have the right IP and ports set up. Originally i thought it was the router but then "netMakeChannDial: err=-3000 rn_p=8050dc14" appeared in the modem log but nothing in the router log even though i turned on the "logged packets type" to Both. I have googled this error but nothing came up so I'm probably just doing something stupid. I have even tried turning off the modem firewall and SPI, but still no luck.
I am able to connect the other laptops and gaming consoles that we have at the house. My brother's laptop is an Acer Aspire 5520. Whenever I tried connecting to the router. It would sometimes accept my wpa key at the same time it would give me a valid IP Address. But for some reason it says on the connection status "Unidentified Network" What I did was I enabled guest zone. I was able to connect thru a guest account without using any WPA key.
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 Asus WL-520GU router, about 2 years old. I hardly experienced any troubles with this guy so far as the router sits next to my laptop. Recently, I started working in the living room at wee hours of the day and I noticed that I do not get much signal, plus it drops so many times that working in the living room has become a nightmare. Its not that I live in a Presidential Palace but actually its as small as a chicken coop.
- I used inSSIDer to find out any interference. My router was using channel 1, although it was set to auto. Majority of routers in our apartment block use channel 1 or 11 (ALL Linksys, except me and an Apple guy) at 2.4GHz. I changed the channel to 3.
- I checked the firmware of the router. Its 184.108.40.206. Asus website gives me a list of firmware upgrades but I am not too sure if there is indeed any upgrade for the routers in the US.
I am not smart enough to install DD-WRT so staying away from it unless I find any didactic instructions. DD-WRT site is not for me. - I am considering hanging router on the wall with Aluminium file behind the antenna.
- I am considering changing the antenna. The antenna is 2dBi. I found a few antennas on ebay, 5dBi, 7dBi, 9dBi, 10 dBi, 12 dBi, 16dBi May be I will replace the antenna with one of these. Any specific I should use? (I don't know if there is any limitation or disadvantage of using higher dBI antenna.)
- Lastly, I am considering buying a refurbished Linksys E1000 or E1200 router and connect both using ethernet cable, so that one of these guys act as a repeater.
My parents have a E4200 and we were trying to extend the wifi with a couple of Netgear WN1000RP extenders. DHCP is setup on the router and is serving out IP addresses and dns correctly to all devices except to the extenders. They connect to the router correctly via wifi, but they never pick up the default gateway ip (router's ip address) which means its not possible to access the internet via the extended network.I've just tried them on my network at home were i'm using a DLINK 605 router running DD-WRT v2-sp2 and they worked fine. The extender picked up the gateway address and I can access the internet through it no problem.
I have a Netgear R6300 Router and I bought 2 Netgear WN2500RP range extenders. My router is in my basement (not ideal I know but it's where everything is home run) and I have one extender on the main floor which works great, but want another extender on second floor or outside.
I have a Wireless router & two network extender from Cisco RE1000.I need to connect them to reach a distance over 150 feet. can I connect an extender to another & to the router?I tried this setup but I keep loosing the connection. it might be the router it self or the tow wireless extenders unable to communicate probably.I need some advise if the two extenders cannot be connected to each other, what are the possibilities.
currently nexus 2000 and nexus 7000 does not support dual connection. you can not connect to 1 nexus 2000 to 2 nexus 7000 chasis. But for the nexus 5000, Nexus 7000s? 5000s and 7000s run same software.
I have an ASUS Z77 Motherboard and when I install the AI Suite II which comes on the installation disc it blocks my internet connection. When I uninstall the software my connection is fine. I am using an Ethernet connection by the way. I think it is being blocked by the component called Network iControl. As soon as that component is uninstalled my Internet connection comes back. I want to have the software, but I also want to have my connection.
I just bought an ASUS RT-N66U gigabit router and an ASUS GX-D1051 gigabit switch. I connected the cable modem to the router, and then connected the router to my switch (and then connected a couple of PCs to the switch). Everything is working fine, except the light on the switch port that is connected to the router is orange, indicating a 100mbps connection (the connections from the switch to the PCs are both green - 1000mbps). The router and switch are both supposed to support 1000mbps.
I just bought an N66U and started the process of flashing dd-wrt onto it via Asus' web GUI. I followed the steps on their wiki and it said 'complete!' I went to do another hard reset, as per the instructions, and no dice. I fear I may have bricked it
The next apparent step to me was to get it into recovery mode and either restore the asus fw or continue down that path with the ddwrt stuff, but I can't get it into restore mode
The documentation says the power LED is supposed to blink 'slowly' after holding the reset button + insert power adapter. I can't get to this stage.
Also, whenever I plug it in, the LED's on ports 2, 1, and WAN are solid for a few seconds. I don't know if it did this before, but I thought it could be an error code of some sort.
I have been tasked to replace the existing Cat 6500 and 3750 switches by Nexus 7000 and Nexus 2000.I was told initially my boss plans to get 2 x Nexus 7000 and then eventually blow up to 4 x Nexus 7000s.For Nexus, is there a list of tasks / points that i need to consider for building the initial design?
Can i just link the Nexus 7000 like the following?
