Hub Switch And Router Networking?

Feb 25, 2011

We are using D-Link DSS-16+ Ethernet Hub Switch and the broadband modem (1Mbps) is directly connected to the hub and it's currently working.Now we have a D-Link Ethernet Router DIR-100 (got it free when we bought the PCs) and an extra broadband modem (from the our home) and I was planning to add it in our shop. I will still be using our current network connection, but I was planning to add the router and that extra modem for the server. I want to use the modems separately; the first one for the 14 computers and the extra one for the server. how to config them?

Networking Router To Switch Connections?

Feb 21, 2011

I'm planning to build a home network total of 11 computers including a server the other 10 units as client..i have a wireless router with 4 ports & a 8 port switch,i have read it before that i can connect my switch to 1 of the ports of my router and it can use my internet connections. anyways i was wondering if i can still use the other ports of my router as i would like to connect my server directly to the router and not on the switch so that i will be able to connect all the 11 units on my network, and also control it through my server using a client software.

Home Network :: Multiple Router Networking Versus Adding A Switch?

Apr 22, 2011

on my home network I currently only run an Airlink101 AR675W router. We have a couple issues with this. The router for one is in my basement and there are points in my house that have low signal strength, especially upstairs in the far corners of the home. Second is I am currently running my home PC as a media center but it is set-up wirlessly so streaming is clunky and jittery. Also on this network is 3 X-box's wired, a PS3 running wirless, 2 PC's wired in, 2 wirless laptops and the afore mentioned wirless PC. A lot of weight for the network. What I want to do is move the router upstairs, hardwire it into my wireless PC (the one doing the streaming) and connect a second router (an identical make and model I am buying this weekend) downstairs which will be basically used as an "expansion" of the wirless and a switch for the hardwired devices downstairs. would this be better than simply moving the wirless router upstairs (hardwiring my PC) and putting a 5 or 8 port switch in downstairs for the X-box's and 2 wired PC's there?

Networking Limitations Of A Consumer-Grade Switch

Dec 24, 2011

So, using a standard off the shelf UNMANAGED gigabit switch (just a cheapie), I have a scenario that I need to know about before I go and buy a whole lot of equipment.Ok so let's start off and say it's a perfect world and the workstations connect at a full 100 Mb/s and the server connects at 1000 Mb/s.So I'm looking at having say, four or five workstations connected to the gigabit switch (at 100Mb/s) and also a gigabit connection from the switch to the server. In this scenario, taking into account everything I've said above, would each of the workstations get a full 100 Mb/s to the server, or would everything be limited to 100 Mb/s total? I could see potential for the server to only talk to one of the workstations at a time and only at 100 Mb/s, but hopefully all four could communicate to the server simultaneously.

Networking :: Basic Vlan Stuff With FS726T Switch

Feb 13, 2011

Its just a basic question, I have a FS726T switch, and wanted to know how the clan thing should work.

Group A are ports 1-8
Group B are ports 9-16
Group C are ports 17-24

Internet is on port 26

I want each group seperate so 3 vlans... but does port 26 need to be in all 3 vlans for.them to receive internet? Is it possible to have 1 port in 3 vlans?

Would that keep them from seeing each other and still access the internet?

Asus RT N16 - Would Fast Ethernet Switch Slow Down Gigabit Networking

Nov 4, 2011

I have setup an Asus RT n16 with 3 computers that support gigabit ethernet and a media server on one floor. On the other floor I have set up a fast ethernet switch (connected to my asus router) which is connected to several fast ethernet enabled computers.

Would the fast ethernet devices slow down the entire gigabit networking to 100mbps connections on my floor - similar to how a wireless n network running at 300mpbs must slow down to 54mbps when a wireless g device is connected to it?

Networking :: Zywall USG200 Internet Connection If Modem And Switch Got Switched In

Nov 25, 2012

I got a retired Zyxel Zywall USG200 from work. Its working just subs ran out. Was thinking of putting it on my home network, any reason not to? I'm a sys admin, not network engineer, so while I'm capable I'm not an ace with this type of equipment.. Which is why I want to mess with it. I'm currently RTFM and it seems pretty straight forward. If it seems like a viable piece of equipment I'd like to use it full time.
How bad can I break the internets and subject myself to the wrath of my wife's downed internet connection =D if I plug it in between modem and the switch?

Networking :: Wireless Networking On MT3707

Oct 23, 2011

I recently installed a very basic version of XP on my old laptop (Gateway MT3707).After hours of searching for the correct drivers, I found them, and installed them. After installing the correct drivers for wireless internet I was able to pull up the list and find my network on it.When double clicking on our wireless network it asks for a network key (also called WEP key or WPA key).Now we have a password for our network, but after an exhausting amount of tries that won't work. I not sure if that is what its looking for. In our apartment we run mac OSX, windows vista, etc., but usually the password for the network is satisfactory. I have never ran into this problem.I hate to be a noob, but I don't know where to go from here.

Networking :: Fixing Networking With DIR-655

Mar 2, 2011

Having some serious problems on the networking front here at home. I have 3 PC's and 2 Xbox's that run constantly. Our Internet bandwidth is Insight's 50.0 which is 50Mb download speed 5Mb upload speed. The problem we're having is this. Ever since we upgraded from dual 20Mb lines on a Cisco RV042 to a 50Mb on a DIR-655 we've been having latency issues. I have everything turned off in the router. It's basically there to give out IP numbers and thats it. All security is handled from the PC's themselves. Bandwidth tests are fine, I sustain download speeds above 7MB/s using download managers. But pings are terrible. Xbox live is terrible, PC online gaming is terrible. is terrible. Only when behind routers. I've tried it behind 3 seperate routers. The DIR-655, the Belkin f5d8236 that insight provided me, and the cisco rv042 originally used for dual wan routing. all of which are met with serious failure.

If I plug directly in to the modem pings are fine. Add a router and pings go to shit.

Adding Wireless Networking To A Router?

Jul 14, 2011

I`m trying to set up a relative`s Internet up so that it is wireless; currently the router takes signal from cable, not phone, is wired only, and has just one ethernet port. I know the number of ports can easily be expanded using a switch, but is it possible to buy a piece of hardware which could be plugged into the router to broadcast a wireless signal as well? I have looked quite thoroughly for anything that could do this but I`m pretty new to networking

Wifi (wrt54gs) Router Woes In Office Networking?

Sep 21, 2012

I have a small office with a Desktop PC onvereted into a File server which has licenses for couple of multi user softwares residing. Further I have about 10 Laptops and 3 Desktops.My server has two NIC's. A linksys wireless (wrt54gs) router is connected to one NIC and a Netgear WL router is connected to another NIC. I have enabled MAC Address access restriction on both the routers.5 laptops get connected to the Wifi Linksys router. And to the Negear Router 5 more laptops + a Netwrok printer with static IP and a switch (unmanaged) is conneted. 3 desktops (all with static IP) in turn get connected to this switch.Iam not able to give print from a Laptop connected to the Linksys router. However the print comes out if I give a print out from a laptop connected to the negear router.The Linksys Router assigns IP starting from to and the netgear assigns IP from to Further at times the laptops connected to the Netgear routers are not able to obtain the license for the softwares from the server (in variably Iam forced to work in Educational mode on those laptops)(I created a netwrok bridge in the server between the two NICs)But by enabling a bridge there is one more problem I notice..... When I type IPCONFIG /all on a laptop connected to the Netgear ruter (having gateway, I notice that the IP number assigned is that of the one from Linksys, and the Gateway is shown as ( - the Linksys router gateway)....

I have a Thompson ST546 Router and I want to give it a public ip address and give two servers behind it public ip addresses as well.Now I am having great trouble getting this set in the web interface.

My router IP address is with .66 and .67 will be the two servers. What is the subnet for these ips? Is it

I have assigned my server the public address but if I try to ping it I am getting no response as if the ip is only a local address. My server is windows server 2008, is there a setting to turn ping on/off that I might have missed? I know the server is pingable internally.

Just to make it clear my ISP has assigned me IPs x.65 to x.70 for my use

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT610N - Guest Networking Features?

Mar 3, 2009

Do any of Linksys routers have the recently popular guest network access feature where you can create a password protected or no password secondary network that provides internet-only access to guests and prevents them from accessing your main network (computers, printers, HDDs etc?). Does Linksys's highest end WRT610N have a similar feature that works slightly differently but does the same thing?

Networking :: 2640 Router Stops Responding Intermittently After A While With ADSL

Aug 18, 2012

I am trying to set up ADSL and WiFi in a country home. I have bought a DLink DSL-2640 modem-router for this. The device is connected to the ADSL, everything works fine. The device has a WiFi AP capability - I have set up the WiFi and I am accessing the network from 2 different iPads, 2 PCs and an Android phone. After a few hours of work I begin to notice that one of the iPads is taking to long to load pages - it even can't load the router's web interface. This goes on for 5-10 minutes or so, then it passes away. Same stuff happens to Android, but rarer. PC has this problem occasionally also, but rarest of all.

I am assuming that this is a problem of the device - ADSL and WiFi might be too much for it. I got a dedicated WiFi router (TP-Link WR740N), connected it to the DLink and turned off WiFi on the D-Link.

Same stuff happens. After a while the Internet stops responding - I can't load the router's web interface. Goes on for 2-10 minutes and passes. WiFi is functional, I can disconnect and connect a device, device obtains an address through DHCP.

I updated both devices to the latest official firmware. I tried switching WiFi channels, switched the router to g-only mode. EM interference is very unlikely since it's a country home and there are no wifi networks around.

Networking :: After Power Outage Router No Longer Working WRT54G

Feb 10, 2011

Two days ago there was a quick power outage here, just one of those flicks off flicks back on deals, but when it came back on I noticed my internet wasn't working. Couldn't figure out what the deal was so after trying a few other things I ended up eliminating my Linksys WRT54G router and just using my DSL modem. Internet works fine.

Now, I've always been kind of sketchy on networking stuff, but I don't think there router is broken I just think it's been reset or something and now I don't know what setting I need to change to get it back to working order.

Here's the kicker though. I had the DSL modem in bridge mode and the router handling traffic before but I had a huge issue with that where my Steam would only download at 10-15 KB/s. Not only that but it would take forever to login and crash constantly. This would happen on my brother's computer too, which is on the same network. I could never figure out how to fix it as forwarding ports had no effect and every other fix I could think of amounted to nothing as well. Hell, I even did a fresh install to no avail.

Now going straight into the modem my Steam is downloading at full speed and there's no slow login or crashing issues. The thing that boggles my mind though is that more than once before I tried doing this very same thing, going straight into the modem, and it didn't fix the problem.

Ideally I want to get the router back up and running and keep my Steam in full working order, essentially to have my cake and eat it too, but the priority is to get the router back up in running as I have another PC on this network, plus a 360, a PC, a wireless printer, and two Wii's.

Networking :: Internet Very Slow Unless Reboot Router Every Few Days WRT160N

Mar 10, 2011

A few weeks ago, I noticed that my Internet connection had slowed down to a crawl. I waited a few days hoping it would go away on its own, but it didn't get better. So I asked this question about how to make it faster.

The problem went away after I updated to the latest firmware, so I didn't follow up too carefully. But every few days since then, my Internet has slowed down again. Unlike before, all I have to do to fix it is open the router administration page and press the "Reboot" button. Nothing else seems to work, though I'm sure there are options I haven't tried.

If it makes a difference, my girlfriend and I both transfer large amounts of data fairly routinely for school (videoconferencing, downloading entire recorded lectures).

The router is a Cisco/Linksys WRT160N v3 that's about a year old. Most of the time, it deals with just two standard Windows 7 laptops.

What could be causing these slowdowns, and how can I get rid of them?

I installed dd-wrt on my router, and I seem to be getting higher and more consistent speeds. Perhaps more importantly, my memory use is fairly constant.

Home Network Very Slow - Using Spare ADSL Router And Homeplug Networking?

Apr 17, 2013

Today I set up a home network:Cable router plugged in to......Homeplug network, (D-Link DHP-307AV/B 200 MBPS PowerLine Homeplugs) plugged in to a LAN port of......a spare adsl router configured as per here: Connecting Additional Routers | Tech Support Forum...with two desktop machines plugged into the LAN ports of the ADSL router.Both of the desktops have got similar specs, are equi-distant from the ADSL router, and are both connected using Ethernet, not wireless.One of them gets a 9MB/sec ADSL [URL]download, the other can't even bring the webpage up and times out if you ask Google to do a search.Taking out the adsl router and plugging the desktop straight into the homeplug gets a network speed of ~13MB/sec on [URL].Plugging a computer directly into the cable modem gives network speeds of ~40MB/sec on [URL] How can I improve on this, and have it so that both machines can access the Interwebnet at a decent bandwidth?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E300 Networking Failed - SSID Is Enabled

Apr 29, 2013

I have a small motel and I provide net access to guests via the E3000 2.4Ghz band. There is no problem here. I also have set up the 5Ghz band for employee access. The networks are designated Bates Guest for the 2.4 Ghz network and Bates Private for the 5 Ghz network (yeah, believe it or not it really is the Bates Motel). As I said, the guest network is operating just fine. The private network on the other hand is giving me fits. The remote devices are not seeing the private network and, yes, the SSID is enabled. I can see and use it with my iPad no problem but my iPod does not. None of  the remote users can see the private network. BTW I admin the router/network from a Win 7 desktop setup. Whats bugging me is how one of my two remote devices sees and uses the 5 Ghz network and other one does not.

2 Apple Airport Extremes - Netgear ADSL Router - How To Setup Home Networking

May 21, 2011

Currently, I have 2 Apple Airport Extremes, and 1 Wireless Netgear ADSL Router. The 2 AAEs are connected separately to the router, and this allows us to get coverage in most part of the house (it's a large house with concrete and granite walls). I also have a HP Officejet 8500 'wireless printer' that is wired to the router as you can only print to the printer when it's in standby with a physical connection to the router (that's a different story). So my goal is to replace everything as the router is slowly dying and as a result of this, I want to be able to access the Internet wirelessly throughout the house, and be able to print from any where in the house without anything connected via cables. And as a bonus, I would like the Internet to be accessible 100 yards/metres down the garden (workshop is there). Basically, blanket coverage!
