Creating A Secure Wired Network Alongside A Wireless Network?

Oct 10, 2011

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 (, 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?

Creating A Network Off A Hotel Wired Connection?

Jul 24, 2012

I'm currently staying at a marriott in NYC and at night after work the wireless access becomes awful. As a work around I've plugged the ethernet into my apple airport express and launched my wireless network as usual.Things are all fine and dandy for the first hour or so of browsing or watching netflix. But then it seems to lock up and I lose connection. I haven't seen any caps on data transfer that would explain it but is there something else I should be looking at? The fact that it works (albeit for a limited time), is a good sign I think. I'm mostly using it for my ipad to watch netflix etc.

Home Network :: Use Laptop As Network Tap Between (DSL) Modem And Wrt54gs By Creating A Bridge?

Jan 8, 2013

I'm experimenting/attempting to use a laptop as a network tap between my (DSL) modem and a wrt54gs by creating a bridge with two NICs in the laptop. My problem is I can't seem to get connectivity on the user end of the router. I can't ping the bridge from an end computer...

DHCP is disabled in the router, but even when manually configuring the IP address on an end computer and using the bridge as a default gateway I can't ping out.

Am I completely misunderstanding the purpose of a NIC bridge?

Nov 13, 2011

I'm having trouble setting up a wireless internet connection for my computers, I connected the patch cable from my modem to a wireless router, then connected to that network with a usb for my computer.I was able to connect to the network, but couldn't seem to actually get into the internet. Is there any solutions to this?

Way To Secure Wireless Network?

Apr 26, 2011

I was just wondering what the best way to secure my network would be. I was reading this article then the comments from others were saying that most of that info is laughable and really no good besides creating a password or encryption key. I have in the past had my wireless router set to not broadcast the SSID as well me creating my own SSID so it's not just Linksys or whatever and I had mac filtering enabled as well use WPA2 Personal and had a password. But I had some problems such as my Aunt's Laptop wouldn't connect unless I broadcasted the SSID and now my brother came back from Colorado and he said he never had any problems connecting to his friends Wireless network, I am assuming his friends was unsecured but here his Laptop won't stay connected unless I have an unsecured network so if I had it set to having a password it would connect but then disconnect after like 3 seconds but now it's staying connected but I have it completely unsecured. His drivers are completely updated from what I can tell.

His laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1500 series not sure exactly at the moment but I think it's the e1505. It's like 4 years old he got it in 2008 which when I was at dells website and typed in his service tag and found drivers the newest wireless card driver was from 2008. Anyways my router is a Linksys WRTU54G-TM Wireless G router with 2 phone ports. Anyways my network would consist of 2 Desktop PC's one running windows 7 1 running XP but both are right next to the router and are wired so nothing there then as for wireless there are 3 laptops at this time my brothers Dell E1505 I think (It Won't stay connected) and it runs Vista, my Dell Latitude C840 running XP (No problems)and an Acer extensa 4420 running XP (also no problems). Also my younger brothers friend comes over a lot and bring his Laptop which is an HP something running XP (no problems) Also we have a PS3, A Wii each have connected fine and possibly my brother from Colorado's Xbox 360. Also my younger brothers friend also brings his PS3 over and has no problems. There are also 3 ipod touches no problems either. We also have Ooma VOIP telephone service and that's just connected directly to the router

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?

Creating Wired Connect Connectivity From Wireless Router

Jun 19, 2011

I have a wireless network and I have a new TV that has wireless and wired connectivity. I do not have a wired port at the spot where the TV is mounted so I am connecting wirelessly. The problem is the wireless on the TV is pretty flaky and I cannot get consistent connectivity..and every time it can't connect I have to retype in the AP passwords as it doesn't remember them. I would like to switch the network to wired, but can't run an actual wire. Can I add a new wireless AP as a repeater or bridge to tap into the existing wireless network and then connect the TV to the a wired port on the wireless router?

Wireless Network Suddenly Became Secure And Cannot Access It

Nov 20, 2012

When I moved in to my roommate's house, her computer was already set up with an unsecured wireless network listed as Open and Disabled requiring no password. All of a sudden, it now has a lock next to the name in the list of wireless networks and asks me for a password when I try to connect. My roommate knows NOTHING about computers and has no idea how it happened. She has an Arris modem, Windows 7. I tried typing in the common IP address for Arris and I did get to a screen giving a lot of info about the system. But there was no where to log in or change any passwords.

Unable To Connect To Secure Wireless Network XP / Ubuntu 12.04?

Sep 26, 2012

I've tried two operating systems (Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows XP) two different wireless adaptors (Dell M1530 internal adaptor and Alfa USB Adaptor which I get full bars on) and tried a different Dell M1530 laptop which I'm also having issues with. I've also tried to diagnose the network with a tool, but I'm totally unable to connect to it so I'm unable to get any more information.If I try to connect to an unsecured network, it works perfectly. I'm totally stumped about this, due to the fact that I've used two different operating systems, two different adaptors and two different laptops (albeit the same brand).

Setting Up Secure Network In A Network

Nov 13, 2011

I'm a head of computing at a senior school and currently have the following predicament. All of the computers we have are quite rightly networked with certain restrictions on them. Now I have just purchased seven machines for my departments use alone. All other computers in classrooms are for general use and have to be usable by any teacher for any subject. The machines I have purchased are so we can install whatever hardware / software I need with no restrictions. These machines don't need network file shares or printer access,the only shared service they need is the schools internet connection.Originally I had a router plugged into a printer port and created wireless network in my room which gave us this functionality - full unrestricted internet access, could download exes and visit any site. However the network admin (and I understand why) didn't like this and asked me to remove it. So now I have some nice machines with no internet access. When I asked the network admin what we could do about this while keeping his networked machines safe, he said it would be a long process as we would have to buy in an entirely new internet connection.

ASUS G50VT - Unable To Connect To Secure Wireless Network

Sep 5, 2011

I came home and was unable to wirelessly connect to my secure home network. I can connect to it secure and wired as well as unsecured and wireless, but not secured and wireless. I have done malware scans and checked for driver updates for both my netowrking card and the Linksys WRT54G router firmware...both are good. All of the other systems in the house can wirelessly connect to it while secured, so I've narrowed it down to clearly being a problem with my computer. I am using Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an ASUS G50VT.

Creating A Private Network Within A Larger LAN

Mar 16, 2013

I'm starting college in the fall and will be living in the dorms on campus. I want to have a "private network" setup within the university's network in my dorm room so my and my roommate's phones and iPads can still find my Apple TV, file sharing and network drives are still possible, and I can easily set up my network printer. Obviously, I don't want to lose Internet connectivity. Can I use NAT to accomplish this without losing Internet connection through the university?

how the sysops will hate me if they find me, I know this. It's not for malicious use, only for ease of use of my devices.

This may be totally off base, that's why I'm asking if this will work before I try it. I have an old WRT54G I would like to use if its capable, if not I'll buy a new one but I'm trying to avoid that. Here's what I'm thinking:

My router plugged into the University's Ethernet port in my room (for this setup do I use a LAN port or the WAN port on the router?) DHCP disabled, all devices static IP On the "Advanced Routing" tab: "Router" mode, not "gateway" mode What should my destination LAN ip be? Gateway? LAN & Wireless or WAN?

Switch connected to the router

Devices connected to the switch or connected wirelessly Should my gateway and DNS on each device be the host address assigned to my router?

Network Drives Creating Themselves Automatically?

By the end of the day if untouched I can have approx 20 of them!To give you more information about the scenario, the computer is on Windows 7 pro, it is on a domain in which the server is 2008 r2, there are 2 network drives in total (only one is duplicating), the only 2 changes I recall that may have caused it is is running on the server syncing all content on the networks drives and a new printer has been added on the network.
