We have a small office and already have a firewall in place that uses content filtering. I am looking for a low cost wireless access point that I can place behind my firewall that will allow me to control access by a username and password list, not just the passkey.
Does this exist without having to go to an Aruba or Ruckus type enterprise WIFI product?
I recently installed Connectifyme (Connectify for Windows - Turn your Laptop or Smartphone into a Secure Wi-Fi Hotspot) so that I could broadcast a wifi signal for my phone. Testing at home, I used it to repeat my router and connect through my computer. But when I took the laptop to the place at which I primarily need the utility (I have access to ethernet but no wifi), and used it to broadcast an unprotected ad-hoc ethernet->wireless network. Since using it in this way, my laptop has been unable to locate my home router, or my college's public wifi, though it is able to locate networks which either I am unable to connect to, or do not supply wifi internet. I tried making a ticke on connectifyme's support page, but after something like a week I've yet to get a reply. Uninstalling connectify did nothing, nor have I been able to find any issues with the network card or windows not recognizing the card. I'll be using windows 7 default utility to see how that works, but I first need to be able to reconnect to networks I know are in range.
how I can correct the issue with my wireless card not finding networks?
I'm doing a college project and looking to triangulate a position where someone is standing in a building using information from at least three Wi-Fi access points. The building has computer labs that I can use. It also has just one Wi-fi signal. I want to know how I can turn one or two of the computers into a Wi-Fi access point that I can detect on my smartphone and differentiate it from the Wi-Fi signal that is currently in the building.Is there something that I can attach to a computer lab computer with possibly USB that will set up a Wi-Fi access point?or if I wanted, could I bring in a laptop and attach something to it in order to set up a Wi-Fi access point?In both situations, I want to use the Wi-Fi connection that is already in the building to create ' hotspots' that I can use so that I can get information from each.
Well this process is self explanatory, setting up the network is easy but im running into trouble with my wireless devices connecting to the strongest signalIm not exactly sure if there is a fix for this yet or if they have not made a protocol to fix it. I have a big house with solid wall in which i have setup 3 wifi's. 1st Modem/wifi Router, 2nd Wifi access point, 3rd wifi access point. Now the problem im having is moving between the access points my devices such as my ipad are changing from one access point to the next whilst moving throughout the house (that is until it loses the first signal I believe or you turn your ipad wifi off/on so it reconnects back to the strongest/closest access point).
I have a customer who wants wireless for his entire school campus. In the gymnasium, he says that there will be at lease 500 people with wireless devices at one time during a game or event. How many access points will I need to provision to accomplish this request? We are quoting the AIR-CAP3602I.
I'm planning to create a network of wifi access points all in different locations. Those locations all have different wifi routers and networks. I'm looking for a easy solution that let easily setup those networks to ask authentication credentials (in a browser page, once a user is inside the wifi and wants access the internet) by an external server possibly without overloading too much that server.
I am trying to find an effective way to extend the wireless signal across our home. I have tried various different solutions. Currently, I have an e4200 primary router that is cascaded with two additional e1500 routers that have been configured as access points. The Linksys support team hosted my computer and configured the devices. The e1500 routers are connected via ethernet wires running through the walls. And, this seems to be working well. Here's my question. The e1500 routers are configured with different SSID names, which Linksys advised was required to avoid conflicts in communications from the three router devices. Is there any way to configure this set up or something similar so that the entire wireless network has the same SSID and is seamless. In the current configuration, I have to specifically connect to the primary router or one of the two access points.
Netgear WNDR3700 - Main router, DHCP turned on 4x Netgear WNR2000 - Setup as Access Points (DHCP turned off), connected to main router via LAN ports
I only want the guest network to have internet access. I have the guest network enabled on the router and access points with the option to "Allow Guest network to access main network" disabled. My problem is that since the access points aren't hooked directly to my modem via the WAN port, the guest network broadcasted from the access points does not have internet access.I have read up on setting up a separate subnet for the guest network using DD-WRT but was curious if there was a way to get the desired result with the stock Netgear firmware.
We are running ACS 5.2 patch 6 and want to restrict access for users to be able to add devices to the system.For example, admin person in site A can only add devices into the site A group and cannot see/access other sites groups.
I am looking being able to control one computer at 6 stations. Each station will contain a keyboard, monitor, and mouse.They do not all need to be able to control or access the computer all at once. I would use a reverse kvm switch but I am looking at distances of 200-500ft between the stations/cpu.My last resort was to buy some cheap dells or build some low end computers and set up remote desktop but we would really like just having the keyboard, mouse and monitor.
I have some network devices that are connected to a 110v power source that goes through a 110v/5v power converter.The Access points keep going back to factory default settings and losing their configuration. I have the same access points installed in the same situation but on a different site that work fine.have changed both the configuration and firmware to be be identical to the working Access Points and still the others default.They do not do this at a specific time of day and out of the 6, they do this at random and not at the same time. Sometimes they will go 24 hours + without defaulting, sometimes they'll go just 4 hours.
I would like to know how to delete a connection from my network. When I connect to the Wii it automatically chooses the right connection. What I have noticed though is that there is a third connection for a printer that is not secured and I have no idea why it is there or has an option to connect to the internet.
BTW the halls are next to each other.The house and the 3 halls are in the vicinity however not attached together(i.e. wall to wall). The distance between the house and the first hall is approx 1 road width distance.ISP is Virgin and the internet was installed this year hence has the latest Virgin Home Hub.I am aware that i probably require 3 wireless access points (1 for each hall).The first wireless access point will need to be connected with a RJ-45 cable running from Home Hub. Can i connect the Wireless access points up together or do they all need to come from the ADSL hub?I am not sure what Wireless access points would be best and how to go about connecting this all up
I have New Pace 4111n Wireless Router that I got from AT&T and is setup on 1st floor, but its wireless range does not get me to 2nd floor. I also have the 2Wire wireless router from AT&T. In Addition, I have ethernet connection from level 1 to level 2 as well.
I was wondering if it is possible to have the Pace Wireless N router to work as modem and wireless access point, at the time use the 2Wire router to broadcast wireless and act as access point for 2nd floor.
IF its doable, how should the two be configured and connected.
I've recently bought another PC, but set it up in a different area than my existing computers. It's down in my basement, along with my PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Now the problem is connecting all of these "toys" to the internet. I only have one in-wall ethernet port, which my PC is currently plugged into. Leaving my PS3, Xbox, and Wii, only with an extremely weak wireless connection. Now, my original thought was just to buy a network "switch," BUT then I remembered I have an old D-Link router. So, logically I should be able to plug an ethernet into the wall, then into the WAD port on my router, then plug my Xbox, PS3, Wii, and PC into the 4 remaining LAN ports on my router. I want another WiFi access point using the same network, and a wired connection for all of my gadgets.
We have a Cisco ASA5505 here that provides DHCP and routing to all our devices in our network. We also have a few other switches and wireless access points connected directly to the back of the ASA5505.For the past year all the wireless network signals has been working fine however starting last month, none of the wireless access points (we have three WRT54G) would allow proper connection (dropping connection, slow internet).I thought this maybe all THREE wireless access points are toast/bricked. So i went out and bought brand new Netgear WN604 and even with the new WAP i'm having same connectivity issues (really slow internet).When hardwired directly to the switches we get BLAZING fast internet & connectivity, no issues.
I called CISCO TAC and they automatically said "our ASA5505 is fine, it has to be your wireless access points" not working properly. I explained to them that i also purchased two brand new access points and they are doing the samething now, how can that be?
At home, I use my laptop to connect to my wireless router without any trouble.But at: public libraries, Starbucks, hotel rooms... any free public wifi? All attempts to connect meets with the same error: "unable to connect to network" (preceded by the system hanging for a lengthy amount of time). Windows advises me to unplug the router and plug it back in, which obviously isn't an option.It's annoying to troubleshoot, because I'm only having the problem at times where I have no wired access (hence: no way to get to forums like these and look for an answer, update drivers, whatever).
I need to have 7 individual ethernet outlets on my home network for rooms, living room etc. My router has 4 ports on it. What should I do to get the additional 3 outputs I need? Can I just plug a switch into my router for the additional ones I need? Or do I need a router with additional ports?
We have two Cisco Wireless Controller 4404 with the IOS Version 126.96.36.199 and a lot of access points (ca. 170). Now i wan't to reboot a group of Access points where i found over a filter..Or how can i reboot all the Access Points at the same time over the Controller Interface? Is it possible? I only found the option in the WebGui where i can reboot 1 Access Point at the same time with "hardware reset".
I've had some long standing issues that I've tried various things to fix. I have two WAP4410N access points set up at a smaller sister company. Wireless clients (laptops) are not receiving DHCP assigned IP addresses. If I type in an IP manually, it works fine.The sister company has a point to point T-1 connection to our main building. Our main building has the DHCP server. The router on the sister company end is configured as the DHCP relay.
I've upgraded the firmware three different times in the past to hopefully resolve the issue, but no luck. Just today, on one of the WAP4410N's, I upgraded to the 188.8.131.52 firmware (backing up config, reset to factory default, upgraded firmware, reset factory default again, restored config). After the first reset to factory defaults, the Access Point itself picked up a DHCP address from the server, and I verified this in the DHCP console on the server, so I know that the DHCP relay is working. However, my laptop would not get a DHCP address when connecting wirelessly through that access point. It is a Windows 7 Enterprise laptop. I also could not get a DHCP IP with my iPhone connecting to wireless, to rule out specific issues with just a laptop.I have the DHCP lease times for the subnet that these WAP4410Ns are on set to 2 hours.
To put a cherry on top, there is one laptop that stays in a lab area at all times, connecting wirelessly, and it DOES get a DHCP IP address (I can see in the DHCP console that the lease for this laptop continually renews as needed). I do remember on initial config when I couldn't get it to work, that I did a manual set up, gained connection, then switched it to DHCP...but that doesn't work for any other laptop.Why would the access points get DHCP address, but not anything connecting to the Access Points?
I have NCS 1.1 appliance and added a 5508 WLC running 184.108.40.206 code using snmpv3. Controller is added to NCS, but it doesnt show any AP's which are there on the controller. AP count is zero. I have another controller with code 7.0.230 added and showing AP's though. AP model is 1252.
We have the following connection based in the services provided by our local telephone company, the connection arrives to a router Cisco 800 series. From the router, i send it connection to a switch SRW2024 v1.2 (Business series) 24-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch with webview. That switch is useful to send connection via RJ45 for a few of PCs. Then, I send connection to a switch SRW2008P (Business series) 8-port 10/100/1000 Gigabits with vieweb and power over ethernet. The last switch, send the signal via RJ45 to seven WAP2000 (business series) Wireless-G AP with PoE.
That network is running fine, but I've some problems to cover some areas within the building and sometimes the signal is really poor. The cable RJ45 between the PoE switch and each AP is no longer than 50 meters and each one with antennes about 8 or 9 Db.
So, now I've the possibility to change the access point for a power devices.
Using WISM with 7.0.220 and 1240 and 3502 APs. Just found that some of our 3502 AP didn't enbale their clean air and CDP when installed. This only happened on a few new APs. But the area these APs where we seem to have had a few problems with PCs. The only PCs effected where Computer On Wheels (COWs), Dell 780 Desktop with a Cisco Wireless Card.
Using an interl wireless card and others in thes areas worked.Once I enabled the CDP and Clean Air, the COWs worked.My question is with the APs not having CDP enabled, could this affect the cisco wirelss card in the COWs?
my Vizio TV (VF552XVT) can no longer find any wireless access points even after inputting SSID or IP information. Other wireless devices (my phone) are able to connect wirelessly. Everything was working fine until a power outage about 3 days ago.
Here's the deal. My internet provider provided me with a shitty router with a lot of settings locked. I can't change DHCP settings or add custom static IP addresses. This sucks. The wireless function on it sucks also.I added an extra router to the network so I have good Wifi in my living room. I turned off the NAT, firewall and DHCP on that one, so it's a simple switch with a wireless access point now.Now here's the deal. The DHCP server of the provider's router hands out IP's from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.253 (192.168.2.254 is the router's own IP address).I gave the added switch/access point the IP address 192.168.1.1 in its own settings. The original router doesn't 'see' the switch now anymore because it's out of the DHCP's range. When I gave it an IP address within the DHCP's IP range, I got all kinds of conflicts (as expected).
I guess this is a solution since it works, but I'm open to other suggestions since it doesn't seem to be the best way of doing things. Besides, I can't access the access point's web interface anymore since it doesn't have an IP address within the network now. It isn't important because I don't need to change any settings anymore, but still.I'm going to add a second wireless router to replace the built-in wireless function of the provider's router. For some reason it sees its own wireless network as a separate network or something. When I roam from the new access point wifi to the provider router's wifi, everything gets confused because it tries to give the laptop a new IP address.
At the moment i have 3 routers across the house, each acting as a wifi access point.My problem comes to when i use my phone or laptop, it connect to a random access point doesn't matter of the signal.Is it possible to combine 3 routers as one access point. So that i would connect to one access instead of 1of 3 access points, that would be a strong wifi signal no matter when i am in the house. Something similar to what bit malls or stores have.I have looked at wi-fi repeaters, but they just repeat the wifi and make new access point.
I have a E4200 as well as a WRT54G. I'm looking to create two different access points to the same network, one access point being 802.11g (WRT54G) and the other being 802.11n (E4200) I want to do this because I need the extra speed from 802.11n for streaming video to my consoles. The problem is that there are multiple devices that only reach up to 802.11g. Would it be possible to plug the WRT54G into the E4200 in order to give a second access point (probably with different SSID) so that 802.11g devices can connect to the network, without having to destroy my 802.11n network? The WRT54G is currently running DD-WRT.
I have a flat that is about 500Sq meters in size and multiple rooms. I am looking to setup one WAG320N in the library with the ADSL connection and setup wireless. Can I then wireless a WAP610 or another AP in the living room and in the dinner room and in one bedroom and set it up with the same Wireless network so they can move seamlessly through the flat? Can they act in repeater mode? Which Modem Gateway and Access Point or Repeater can do it.
i have deployed WLC 5508 in head office with current 56 access points (mix of 1262N, 1141N and 1242) are regist ered and working fine, recently we extended to our remote office (connected over Layer 3 MPLS with OSPF Protocol) were none of the access points are not registering, i am able to reach to the controller from the specific VLAN and native VLAN without any issues. @remote site i have enabled option 43 and option 60 with the controller IP.
Number of APs.................................... 56 Global AP User Name.............................. ciscoGlobal AP Dot1x User Name........................ Not Configured
I am trying to deploy several AIR-CAP3502E-E-K9 access points from a cisco 5508 wire lan contoller running ver 7 code. However iam having difficulty registering the access points with the WLC. The wlc is connect to a 3650 switch, and each access point is connected to a 2960 switch. A bad update was not allowing the access points to get their correct firmware.
I am having an issue here. I have 2x 5508 that each have 100 AP license and a little under 200 access points. Basically all of the access points are using DNS to connect to the primary controller that has the DNS entry. Basically half of my access points need to be on the second controller and in order to do this I have been using the high availability mode of each access point to push them to the second controller IP address.It was working perfectly until now. I have pushed 28 access points to the second controller and the last two I need to push at this location just keep resetting on the primary controller. Neither controller is configured as master controller.
