Wireless :: How To Bring Wifi Inside A Steel Building
Apr 11, 2011
I need WIFI inside a giant steel Quanset hut. There is a good signal right outside. Is there a way to do this with one device? I was wondering if I could put one of the antennas of a WRT54G through a hole to the outside and then set it in repeater mode. Theory being it would use the outside antenna to pickup the signal and the inside antenna to broadcast.
I have a cradlepoint ctr350 router. I have a steel building garage abou 75 ft. away from where the router is stationed. I have no problem getting a good signal at the doorstep of the steel building, but once inside I have nothing. What would be the best way for me to get wifi inside of the steel building without having to run a hard line?
I installed this Linksys E1500 yesterday and have had a problem keeping my iPhone 4 and an iPod Touch connected to WiFi.The devices go to sleep. When I swipe the screen and "bring them back" the WiFi is Not Connected. I have to go in and re-enter my network password again. As long as the devices don't go to sleep, they maintain connectivity. Once connected they function properly.
The iPad 2 & Samsung Galaxy S phone we have seem to be keeping their WiFi connectivity, as well as a G62 HP laptop running Windows 7, an older XP machine using a Cisco AE1000 wireless network adaptor and the Xbox 360. The issue is just with the iPhone 4(ios 5) and the iPod Touch(ios 4).
I had issues with the iPad and the Galaxy phone until i disabled WMM Support in App & Gaming.I would bring this back to the retailer but I had it sitting on my desk for about 30 days and it's past their return policy.The firmware is up to date on the Router. I've tried power cycling all the devices including the cable modem & the new router.
Have two desk top pc's in metal building office they are operating by way of DSL modem my provider is Century Link. I purchased a WRT 54Gl linksys wireless router hoping I would be able to get a WIFI signal to my house. I have no live phone lines in my home just the one in my metal building , how can I get a signal through the metal building to my home in order to use wifi on my Ipod and Iphone . Keep in mind I am 200 ft from my home and have a wooden shop and another metal building to go through to get to my home.
I live in a new apartment building which means a lot of concrete. The internet (fiber) enters the house at the beginning where the modem is hooked up to my Linksys WRT320N. From there two cables run through the house:1 to the home office, where two computers are connected through a switch.1 to the living room, where the Xbox, blue-ray player are connected through a switch.I also have a wifi network running from my WRT320N, but as it is at the beginning of the house, there are some black spots in other parts of the house. I tried to fix this with a Netgear repeater, but that keeps disconnecting.
What I want to do know is place a second linksys device in the living room at the end of the already existing cable that will also broadcast a wifi network, but I want this to be exactly the same Wi-Fi network as I already have. What I want to achieve is that I can walk from one end of the house with my iPad, streaming a video, to the other end of the house and that I always stay connected to the internet and that my tabled just picks up the strongest broadcaster, basically the same as with a mobile phone.
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.
I've to bring vlan 2 access to a remote site through 2 AP1261N configured as bridges. Here it is the network diagram
One AP1261N is configured as root bridge. Its ethernet interface is connected to a switch with vlan 1 native and vlan 2 tagged. Vlan 1 is for APs and switches management. Vlan 2 is for users access. The other AP1261N is configured as non-root bridge and one PC is directly connected to the AP's ethernet interface. I've successfully managed to create i wireless link between the 2 APs and so I can reach the vlan 1 IP address of the non-root AP. My problem is that I can't reach the PC connected to the non-root AP.
Will this router ever see a firmware update so that we can have some additional functionality? The version of Twonky Media server that was bundled with this router was old to begin with, and now we are stuck with it? I tried the E4200 but it just kept spinning my drive that's parked in a ThermalTake BlackX, at least the 3000 doesn't do that, but when can we expect some new firmware, it's been 8 months. I used to love Linksys, but with this kind of support I may have to move to a different brand, and I bet I am not alone. it doesn't break the E3000 like you broke the 4200.
designing a wireless network for an apartment complex. The complex is shaped like like an rectangle, fairly small, maybe 100 feet on the ends and 300 feet long on the sides. There are 130 people that we are assuming may have about 3 devices each that they will connect to the wireless network, potentially simultaneously, as this is in a college environment. We have plenty of bandwidth and down/up speed. We are running 30 megabit down and 10 up. I am planning on having a router with two access points centrally located in an apartment and extending the network out with antennas in each direction from the access points with Omni directional antennas. The Access points that I am planning on using are Cisco WAP200 with maybe a Linksys router, as the router should not have more than 10 connections on it. I need something that will not crash after 10-15 users connect to it because it jams up from overload.
After some searching I see many people using power injectors or switches that supploy PoE. I am building a lab for the CCNA Wireless and currently have an old Cisco 3550 PoE switch and a 2106 Controller that I got at a steal of a price. My question is, The 1142 can use the 15.4 Inline Power from the 3550 even though it is not the 802.11af standard correct? If it doesn't then I will need to order a power brick.
We are leasing an office space from a building that has it's own network center. This center can be used by each office/company to either house their own networking solutions or utilize their internet access if you plan only to use cloud servers or NAS servers. Our company (4 employees) is using this network center only for internet access with all of our data stored and accessed in our cloud service.We would like to access the internet wirelessly, which building does not provide. We were given one port and shared the link through the use of a switch. So my questions is would an access point add wireless connectivity without any information (ISP?) provided by the network center? I am not sure yet if we will be purchasing a router/AP or device made for to be used as an AP.
I've never been very good with networking, and this is my first post to these forums, but essentially, what I would like to do is build a wireless network throughout my house, and fortunately it is a new build and I have already had hard-wires installed to the first floor and basement, with the primary connection point being my office on the 2nd floor.What do I need to do, hardware wise, to have a single wireless network throughout the house instead of 3 different wireless routers or something like that?
We have 5 pcs Cisco Aironet 1142 Access Points without controller at the same building. SSID is same for all of them. Our problem is client connected via wireless disconnecting randomly and continues working after a few seconds. IOS versions are same for all of them you can find detailed information about versions and configurations below.
I have a project where I need to connect two building using a wireless bridge.I cisco specialist told me to purchase two 3500 (AIR-CAP3502P-A-K9) access points and an external antennas.The problem I have is these access points will need something to control them. If the access points will be in separate buildings will I need a controller on either side of the bridge to get them to work?What other cisco AP device capable of 300Mps dual band that are autonomous and can bridge between two buildings that are a 50 yards apart?
We have a Windows server based network (15 wired computers) and four wireless devices (more to come)We are using a CISCO SA520W appliance in the main building as the perimeter Internet gateway / firewall / wireless access. It all works well.We have a second building too far away for wireless devices to reach the SA520W radio in the main building.The second building is connected via fiber to the main building (switch to switch). Several wired computers are connected to the switch in the second building.We want to provide seamless wireless connectivity as wireless device users move between buildings.
We thought to mount and connect another simple B/G capable wireless access point, via ethernet wire, to the switch in the second building. But we're not sure of the best CISCO/Linksys model to choose for this. The choice should work well with the SA520W configuration and be relatively simple to configure in that environment.We're also unsure of the steps to configure a seamless wireless experience for the roving wireless device users.
We have cisco wireless network throught the whole 8-floor building on Cisco WLC 4402 and Cisco LAP-1242 AP. There are no coverage holes, but sometimes clients are flapping between two access points at different floors with serious loss in throughput. Is there any method to limit roaming between different floors in the building?
Im trying to setup a site to site VPN using a Cisco 877, problem is we have no ADSL presentation, we've just been given an Ethernet line to use from another client in the building, If i plug my laptop into the port and use the External IP information given i can use the internet and ping the other VPN just fine, if i place my blank config 877 into the port and set up VLAN 10 to use the same IP information, it cant even ping the local gateway? The port on the router is in VLAN 10 like it should be and the interfaces are all up, the router can ping its local VLAN 10 ip address.
I've attached my ASA's config. I can't bring the VPN up by pinging from the ASA but the VPN will come up when someone pings from behind the ISA server. So the problem seems to be routing/NAT on my ASA because my pings aren't being directed out the tunnel. The VPN in question has 64.106.x.x as the peer and AES 256/SHA for phase 1 and 2.
Have already checked in the Device Manager if the �Allow this device to wake the computer� is unchecked.What do I do to bring the sleep mode back without turning off the file sharing (if file sharing caused the problem)?
I know I can bring up a tunnel up-and-up without any layer 3 address, without any ipv4 or ipv6 address (apart from tunnel source/destination of course). And I don't have to use "ip unnumbered <interface>" either. But what good is a tunnel interface with no address? Can you bridge them or something?
I'm using a Dell computer CPU i7 8 gig of ram. It is wired in to the router. Why does it take so long to log into the router and bring up the different pages in the settings. I have never seen a router take so long. I have not updated the firmware version 2.02NA. I have not upgraded it yet. oh I have a cable connection. When I surf the web the pages come-up fast.
I am trying to configure an IPSEC tunnel on a 1921 router. What I hope to accomplish is that using a IP SLA that the IPSEC tunnel will only be brought up IF the normal WAN connection is not responding. My thoughts were to route the traffic that needed to come back to corporate through a loopback interface but I havent found a way to do that.
I'm trying to bring up two t1 and bundle them into a multilink on a 3845 on one end and a 3725 on the other end. On the 3845 I have installed two VWIC-2MFT-T1-DI and on the 3725 I have installed two VWIC-2MFT-T1 and a 1DSU/CSU-T1-V2.
For some reason I'm able to bring up the T1's on the DSU/CSU WIC. When I try to connect the T1 on the other WICs, on the 3845 I see SLIPs and Interface Resets however on the 3725 there is no errors however I still see UP DOWN.
I'm trying to configure hairpinning on my Cisco 887VA VDSL router, so all LAN users can connect to the server using SMTP port 25 which is also in the same LAN subnet, using external router address, which is assigned to dialer1 interface.Traffic comming in from outside works fine.
External IP: 18.104.22.168/29 PC address connecting to the server: 192.168.101.28 Server address: 192.168.101.200 IOS: 15.1.4M1
I'm running tcpdump on the server on port 25 and... nothing happens. The traffic is not going through.One thing that I've notices in debug ip packet is this line:
s=22.214.171.124 (Vlan1), d=192.168.101.200 (Vlan1), len 52, rcvd local pkt
shouldn't source be internal vlan1 IP - 192.168.101.1?
How do I get one of these to automatically bring up the VPN tunnel without the end user having to login and click connect? I got the VPN working Dynamic to ASA static, but it doesnt come up on its own when I try to access something over VPN.
I have 2 4402 WLC running 7.x.x.x code. I also have some 1510 Mesh- L WAPs that require an old version of code. I need 126.96.36.199M for those. Is it possible to bring up a 3rd controller running this old code with the other 2 4402's running modern code? What will break? I know that anchoring and mobility might get messed up. What are the other caveats?
