Access Internet Using Wireless Network And Printer Using Separate Wired Network At Time?
Apr 4, 2012
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 currently have a Linksys WCG200 wireless gateway cable modem. The computers in my office are connected to it via ethernet cables and I use the wireless signal in the rest of the house for my laptop and guests. I'm (still) using Win XP Pro on all the computers.I'm about to start a work at home job doing customer service and I am not allowed to have a wireless network that might broadcast customer information, so I need to be able to prevent that from happening. I'm assuming I'll need two separate networks?All computers need internet access and if it's possible I would still like to be able to share files between the two networks (assuming I need 2 different networks), but it's not the end of the world if I can't do that.
I live on a school campus of sorts, with several wifi connections and routers (all of which I have access to, and can reset, etc). Normally I have no problems connecting to any and all wireless routers. Recently, my internet quit without warning. I've tried connecting via a hardline, and I've tried resetting pretty much every router and connection on campus, with no luck. Everyone else is still able to connect with no problems.When I connect to a campus wireless connection, it connects, but gives me the error "rseau non identifi, pas d'acc�s Internet" (translates to "unidentified wire/network, no internet access"If I run diagnostics on my network card, it finds the problem as an invalid IP configuration:
"Problmes trou - Connexion seau sans fil 3 n'a pas de configuration IP valide"
If I run ipconfig/all, I get the following:
Microsoft Windows [version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. C:UsersUtilisateur>ipconfig /all Configuration IP de Windows
i have computer A with 2 NICs.... NIC 1 has ip 192.168.x.x which has access to internet and NIC 2 10.0.x.x which as access to server files and other docs....i have computer B with ip 192.168.x.x but want to be able to access 10.0.x.x using computer A as a router is this possible and how do i go about doing that. i was thinking about bridging NIC 1 and NIC 2 adding static route on computer A and adding a second ip 10.0.x.x to computer B NIC (i know it is possible to add 2 ips on one NIC in windows) so i can have access to the file server...is what i mention possible
My wired desktop cannot access the internet. Its still connected to my home network however. Every other computer on the network can connect to both the network and the internet just fine. the wired desktop is running windows xp. I have tried renewing the ip address, resetting IE settings, disabling the firewall, and I am currently running an anti-virus scan.
My buddy just purchased a Sharp AR-M450 multifunction printer for his small business and it has the optional network card. He wants to take advantage of the network printing capabilities but we want to avoid having to run an ethernet cable from the printer to the wireless router. The entire network is wireless because running cables would be a huge pain in the building he is in. What could we use to connect the printer to the network without running cables?
I recently purchased a DIR-655 and everything's working fine -- Internet access, visibility of local shares, etc. -- with the one except accessing to my printer (Brother MFC-7440N) that's hard-wired to a port on the router.After installing the latest PC SharePort Utility on my two Windows 7 desktops, they're both able to connect and use all of the features of the printer (print, scan, etc.). However, I can't say the same for my two Macbook Pro's connected via WiFi (802.11N). I installed the latest Mac SharePort Utility on both, but neither can "see" the printer. Caveat: If I connect the laptops via a LAN cable (ie. hard-wired directly into the router), they're able to see the printer. how to configure the router (or Mac) to allow them to see the printer?
Internet connection come from an ethernet port in the wall. Cat 5 then goes to the switch and then to various computers.Desktop #1 has a IP of 10.1.1.133, sub 255.255.255.0, default gateway 10.1.1.200, DNS 10.1.1.4I want to be able to attach a cat5 cable to the LAN port of a Linksys WRT 54G going from the switch.What is the settings I need to select in the Linksys router for this to work.DHCP - Off. I guess the LAN IP of the router must fall in the range of the Main DHCP pool. Could I select anything in the 10.1.1 100's as long as another computer did not have the same IP. The starting IP of the linksys router stays in 192.168.1...... and doesn't looked like it can be changed. Does any Laptop that connects wirelessly to the linksys router need a static IP or can it obtain an IP address through
I am using a Macintosh (Lion) on a wireless network. I want to print to a printer on land line ethernet. I have the printer's IP address. I attempted to add the printer on the Macintosh using first LPD protocol and then IPP protocol. Neither worked.I chose Autoselect to select the driver and it would revert to Generic PostScript Printer.When I selected Add, screen said "Setting up " with the IP address for a while and then said "Unable to verify the printer on your network"
I have a curent cable connection that is fine connecting two computers through a router and it is wired. I have a new Iphone and some programs "documents to go" for example won't sync to my computer thru USB cord it wants a WiFi connection. Can I have both a WiFi and wired conection on same cable connection? I'm asuming if I get just a WiFi router, I will also have to get new nic cards for desktops, when all I really want is something for the Iphone to WiFI thru
Win 7 Home Premium. My vpn connection to work disconnects my wired internet connection. Is there a way around that? If not, can I force the vpn to connect wirelessly while staying wired to my home network and internet? Is it even possible to have both connections active at the same time? Vista laptop uses only wireless and has no problem staying conected while using vpn.
I am looking for some information concerning network adapters. Many server vendors (HP, Dell, IBM and so on) use multiport single network adapter (one card,several ports -let's assume 4 ports). What resources are shared in multiport solution? For example:
- does multiport nic has significant limitations? For example, it's cpu cannot handle full 4-port load? - interrupt sharing? - buffer size?
DGL-4100 (wired gigabit router) -> Wii -> X360 -> PS3 -> DGS-2205 (wired gigabit switch in study) *-> My PC *-> Her PC *-> DAP-1522 (wireless access point/bridge)
Now, we're on the 192.168.1.x domain, and I've already hooked my PC up directly to the DAP-1522 and switched its IP address. So now, I can connect to it through the switch. I've renamed it, set it to WPA2 with a passphrase, and should be set to go. However, I can't get my laptop, IPod touch, or any devices to see it. I tried entering the SSID manually, and nothing can find it.
i have had my dir-655 one year now, have never had wireless problems with it until now.my notebook's internet gets very slow somedays, i just restart my router and then internet speed works normally.i have:
what i am after is, a way to extend my internet in a room that cant connect wireless. i want to be able to connect my ipod touch/ nokia phone / ipad on my home network. i have wireless in the house, But, because of the insulation in the walls and ceiling in this room(kingspan, with the silver foil on it) i cannot get a signal, i am wanting to know if it is possible to some how use the wired connection from my pc in the room and add a wireless dongle(usb) and some how get it to share the connection?
I work at a small business that has an exisiting wired network. Our setup is: Internet > ISP Box > DHCP Server > Switch > Users. I have been attempting to add a wireless router to the network to enable our shop techs to wirelessly access our file computer. I have managed to get the wireless working, but the network was not visible, I could not access any network computers from the wireless, and I could not access the wireless router from our main server. After this I screwed up the settings completely and even a wired connection to the router couldn't connect to the internet. Now I have purchased a WAP54G, but I forsee the same problems when I go to config everything tomorrow.
I have a DSL modem with wireless networking, and I am trying to install a second wireless router for a separate network. The standalone wireless network has five laptops networked to a sixth laptop, in a server/client setup. To complicate things, I am plugging the server laptop into a LAN connection on the DSL modem. The server shows both the LAN connection with internet access, and the second wireless network without internet access. The client laptops just show the wireless network, without internet access.
This is exactly what I need - internet access for the server but no access for the five clients. I have each wireless router on a separate channel and only auto connect to the standalone wireless network. Is there anything I need to do to the setup of either of the routers to avoid problems?? The wireless network without internet access seems to be abnormally slow in response and I am wondering if there is any interference between networks. None of the laptops are accessing the DSL wireless network, but I still need that DSL wireless capability for other computers in the building.
I'm having trouble connecting my 360 to the wireless router to gain Internet access.I use my phone's Wi-Fi to gain internet access with NO issues. My current setup: NetGear Wireless router is connected to my D-Link wired router, and I can access the internet no problem. (10 MBPS down, 5MBPS up)When I try to connect the 360 to the Netgear Wireless router, it connects to the Network, but Internet test it reads "DNS error - The router or modem may mot be automatically providing DNS settings. Try a manual DNS setting instead."(Next suggestion) "DNS Error - If you have a PC that can successfully browse the web, check it's network properties to find the DNS address it uses..."Now, I have XBMC running on my computer, and the 360 can access the network so it shows up under Video Apps so I can see a file list to stream movies. When I try to run a movie, it says I must download an update - so I can't watch the movies at all.I juso set it up so I can access the Network AND Internet.Again, Netgear wireless router (which 360 connects to) connected to D-Link wired router.
We have 30+ wireless access points controlled by a Cisco 4400 Series WLC (mostly AP1231's and some AP1242's). The WLC's system time is set by a network NTP server and is correct. However the APs clock is an hour behind that of the controller.
My Canon MP495 3-in-1 inkjet XPS printer is connected through my mother's computer, and up until a few days ago I was able to print from it through our Home network. My mother can still print from it directly, so it is not a hardware issue. On my computer when I go to print, underneath the printer selection it says server offline. I have checked both computers and they are both on the Home network with all sharing options on. I can see her media and documents from my computer and she can see mine vise-versa. When I open the Network and Sharing Center and view the full network map, my mother's computer runs to a question mark then to the router, while mine is shown to be fine. When you click on the router within the map it brings up a page saying "Important Update. To avoid a conflict with your Internet Service Provider, your router's IP address has been updated to 10.0.0.1. You must now update the IP addresses in your router's configuration settings for each relevant service,such as port forwarding and IP address reservation." I do not know if this is the problem and it is starting to go beyond my realm of understanding. Also, possibly related, we had a bad storm that did NOT knock our power out, but the internet went down and we had to reboot the modems. This occurred right before the problems began. Last piece of information: We are going through 2 routers due to lack of jacks in the house. The line goes through the first router which connects to a second one in the back of the house. Both computers are linked to the second router, and it is the second router which shows on the network map. I go to an online college and it is necessary for me to access the printer.
I have a network printer (HL-2250DN) that I want to also reach from outside the home network. In the network it is reachable by 192.168.0.103 Now I used a DNS service to map my external IP to a domain name. How can I now access my printer? myprinter.no-ip.org is mapping to my external ip. But how can I forward this to my printer?On my router I'm forwarding port 80, 631 and 646 for the IP 192.168.0.103. But still it is not working.
I have been involved in the Networking of a museum with a set of "Show" computers which display video, and for this reason cannot have anti virus installed becuase of the performace hit, and also the risk of pop-ups on the videos. They do however need to be connected to the internet as some are interactive and allow people to send simple emails, and they all need to allow remote support when things go wrong.It seems the networking was not thought out very well initially, and there is a single wireless router which serves the staff and public on a secured wireless network, but also serves the "Show" machines via a wired connection from one of its ports, which then connects to a master switch which serves the show machines.Now the wired and wireless is on the same network, and everything shares the same IP subnet (192.168.1.xxx), and this is not a good situation in terms of the securuty of the show machines on the wired network. So I need to work out a way to totally separate the wireless network (which will be very prone to people opening viruses in their emails etc), from the wired network (which will be the show machines which wont be touched by anyone).
I want to achieve this in the simplest and easiest way, and have been reading about the possibility of setting up a second wired router behind the current wireless one, with a different subnet IP address, to which the "Show" machines could be connected. The WAN port on this second router would connect to a LAN port on the wireless router, and thus the show machines could get their internet, but separated from the dangerous wireless network.Does this sound like a sensible start? Will the fact that the wired router (and show machines) are on a completely different subnet to the wireless router (and wireless devices), mean that the wired network will be protected? Or do I need to do more? And is this likely to work?
I have recenly installed a RV082 with two ADSL modems connected to Broadband lines. Access to our networks is done via VPN accounts configured on Windows Vista laptops. The VPN network works fine and everyone has access to their network data and the Intranet/Internet.
I'm having problems with connecting a network printer to access over the VPN. We have managed to get a IBM1532 network printer working using the following network details by allowing the IP address of the printer through our VPN network/firewall.
We had to connect a Xerox C2424 workstation printer on site, so we configured the device using the same network details as the IBM printer, connected it to one of the available ports on one of the Broadband modems but we could not get the printer to be seen or connected to using this setup.
However I connect my own Home Laptop PC configured with the IP port settings above directly to the same modem as the Xerox printer this works but only after we changed the IP gateway address on the printer to match the modem.
If I switch on DHCP on the printer it finds the IP gateway address of the RV082 but will not allow us to send anything to it.As the ADSL lines are on a Dynamic IP rather than Static.
My computer is a 32 bit, Win7 SP1 with Pentium Dual Core 2.6 Ghz and 2Gb of Ram on a wired network. My wife has a similar system using a wireless network. She can ping my IP Address, but I cannot ping hers. We both have full access to the Internet. We are using the same workgroup, and both computers have file and printer sharing enabled and IPv6 addresses and DNS server addresses selected automatically.The problem appears to be with my computer?
Here are my system stats:

With traditional classful subnetting, the same number of host bits is used to designate the subnet ID for all the resulting subnetworks. This type of subnetting always results in a fixed number of subnets and a fixed number of hosts per subnet. For this reason, this is known as fixed-length subnetting. The decision about how many host bits to use for the subnet ID is a big planning decision. There are two considerations when planning subnets: the number of hosts on each network, and the number of individual local networks needed. The table for the subnet possibilities for the 192.168.1.0 network shows how the selection of a number of bits for the subnet ID affects both the number of possible subnets and the number of hosts that can be in each subnet. One thing to keep in mind is that in all IPv4 networks, two host addresses are reserved: the all-0s and the all-1s. An address with all 0s in the host portion of the address is an invalid host address and usually refers to the entire network or subnetwork. An address with all 1s in the host portion is used as the local network broadcast address. When a network is subnetted, each subnet contains an all-0s and an all-1s host address that cannot be used for individual host addresses.
