I can't connect my handheld to my Toshiba Satellite directly so purchased a serial/usb adapter. Using ActiveSync I am unable to establish the connection either with the usb plugged into a usb hub or directly into the laptop's usb. Using another computer and plugging the serial cable directly into the desktop's serial I had no problems. Any way to make the connection via the usb adapter? Tried second adapter, same experience.

Ok I have 2 cisco 1200 cisco access points which didnt come with an atenna, anyways I currently have one cisco 350 AP and would like to synchronize the mac address filters to this 2 cisco 1200 AP. Or if I have to create a new list on one of the 1200 series and then find out if there is a replication between them.

Thank you

hey,

I am tryin to connect two wireless routers together so that i may use the first one to connect wireless PC's in the house together, the second to be downstairs and connect PC and Xbox's to it with wires.

Diagram:
http://users.igl.net/damo/network.gif

Hardware Specs:

2 PC's already connected wirelessly to Router One(DLink)
Multiple Xbox's (previosuly connected with wires to xbox live no problems)

Dlink DSL-G604T (Wireless ADSL Modem/Router)
http://dlink.com.au/default.aspx?FolderID=227
-802.11b/b+/g Compatible
-4 Ethernet Ports
-Currently Sharing ADSL with Connected PC's no problems
-Firmware Version :  V1.00B07.NZ
- IP Address 10.1.1.1    
- Subnet Mask  255.0.0.0  

LevelOne WBR-3406TX (Wireless Broadband Router)
http://level1.com/products3.php?sklop=11&id=540547
-802.11bb/g
-4 Ethernet Ports
-1 WAN port
-IP Address 192.168.123.254

So far from reading other posts all i can find is about using the Xbox Gaming adapter which i dont want to do as i already have 2 routers.
The Position of each router is fixed as the ADSL only comes in on one phone line into the study where the DLink router is positioned. Dragging a Cable between them is no good.
Testing will be done in the same room so not to worry about LoS or any of that for now.
I have read stuff about Static Routing? and DHCP servers being turned off?

Thanks for help!
PS. 125 Points, not sure how to get more, when i click buy points it shows me some premium thing and that i …

Have above router on Win2k box.

I do not intend to use the router as a VPN. I will have a Range Extender that I ordered that I could return.

I will be adding 2 7dbi antennas but not sure if they have any vaule.

*****Wonder if this can be upgraded through software/firmware to a WRT54GS model?

*****Does the ALchemy,Talisman,Sveasoft firmware offer any advantages to a simple home user to perhaps provide a better or stringer signal?


****Some people have written that boosting the power seemed to show no difference. Opinions?


*****Just tinkering and learning. What are the best settings and firmware?

*****If it all gets flubbed up, can I recover the original firmware if I cannot get into the box via IP address??


Thank you on this newbie topic for me.

I maintain the network at a publicly available computer center. We have a public hotspot, but the range is not so good. I don't know if you are familiar with IPCop, but we have an IPCop router that runs DHCP for the wireless network. An ethernet cable is run from the IPCop box to a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that is configured as an access point (the WAN port isn't being used). That AP is in the ceiling next to the door to the building (small building). The signal barely gets out to the parking lot though.

I would like to extend this range as much as possible, although we don't have thousands of dollars to spend.... I am willing to spend up to $200, but was planning on building my own antennas. I'm not really sure what the best way to hook these antennas up to my network is though. I'd rather not run them straight off of the Linksys router and replace the antennas that are already on there because then i will loose signal inside of the building. If I get another AP though I will have to design some sort of weatherproof box to keep it in outside (not to mention we are about 2000 yards from the beach and it is VERY salty). I would like a way to just run some wires through some PVC outside to a couple of antennas placed at various locations. One of the cables will probably be around 50 feet. Is this going to cause a big signal loss? What kinds of antennas should I get? Should I just make them myself? Is the best thing to do to simply get an AP and keep it inside and run …

What do you look for on the specs?

I have a linksys 802.11b wireless network set up at my home. I had a problem with the computer connected to the router so I had to reinstall windows and reinstall the router software. Ever since then, my computer that is connected wirelessly to the router has had an extremely slow internet connection. I also find that on the wireless computer if I try to use IEEE 802.1x authentication, the computer wont be able to connect to the network.

I'm in the market for a good IP enabled (remote viewing) KVM.

This is a lazy question (I know I can search Google) but I'm hoping for a quick answer.

Where might I find a good comprehensive review on KVMs of this nature?  What are you using or what are you considering?

Ideally, I'd like to keep the price down (~ $700.00?) as much as possible so I don't require any more than 8 ports (no expandability required), no major security (I'll be using a VPN anyway) nor do I require sophisticated user management.  I should be able to view screens and enter keyboard/mouse operations in a web-like interface.  It must work well with all versions of Windows (NT, 2K, XP), Novell, and Linux.  I've never owned a KVM that didn't occassionally give me mouse troubles in Windows NT and 2K.

Thank you,
Shawn

I am trying to get WOL to work through my DSL connection/broadband router. The router is a Draytek 2600G.

Here's what I have tried so far:-
* using wakeup.pl utility from my linux server (http://www.gknw.de/mpform.html). The script seems to run fine and reports sending the magic packet.
* I can get WOL to work fine locally on the LAN (using the WOL gui from www.depicus.com)
* I have tried forwarding both TCP and/or UDP port 5858 to internal IP 192.168.0.100 (the IP of the PC in question) or 192.168.0.255 port 7 (the port the depicus utility defaults to)
* I have tried setting 192.168.0.100 as DMZ
* I have added a static ARP entry linking 192.168.0.100 to the MAC address of the PC

But none of the above (other than WOL from the LAN) wakes the PC!

Any pointers much appreciated!

We are running Windows XP and have two USB to Serial Converters (Aten UC-232A) on the PC for serial RFID Readers. When we connect the RFID Readers (4W 915MHz or 8W 915MHz) the first time everything works fine and all data from the readers are transmitted correctly trought the converter. The readers are on COM3 and COM4.

The readers have both a transmit and receive fuction. The tags we use store 64 bytes of data per tag with each one a unique ID. The problem is, when we remove the USB converter from the PC and put it back while transmitting data trough the readers Windows XP detect the USB converter and Reader as a serial Microsoft Ballpoint mouse. The other error is more serious. When more data is transmitted, lets say the reader read two or more tags Windows XP crash and give a blue screen. When two or more tags are presented to the reader, more than one ID is transmitted to the PC.

The error file present the following error codes:
Event Type:      Error

Whats the best wireless pci card also I've seen certain cards that have a movable antenna does this help or is it a waste of money. I will be placing this card in a system thats up against the wall. I have a link to the type of card with a cord attached to the atenna.

Hi:
    Can someone help understand the solution to the following problem:


Suppose the network is a packet-switched virtual circuit network.
Denote the VC setup time by ts seconds. Suppose the sending layers add a total of h bits of header to each packet. How long does it take to
send the file from source to destinations?

The time to transmit one packet onto a link is (L + h)/R.
The time to deliver the first of the M packets to the destination is Q(L + h)/R (i.e. packet must be transmitted onto each link before reaching the destination).

Every (L + h)/R seconds a new packet from the remaining packets arrives at the destination.

Thus the total latency is  ts + (Q + M - 1)(L +h)/R.

I don't understand how the author arrived at the
 (Q + M - 1) portion of the problem.

The mode type is 56K smart SCM modem by DYNAMODE.
OS: windows 98 SE

I have this modem and he works greate.
the problam is that the cable i recieved with it,serial cable,is too short about 0.5 meter/20 inch.
so i bought a new one 1.8 meter/71 inch.

but surprisely it just dosn't work good.
i can't dail from the dailer and get error meseges.

i've tried the cable on an old  serial cable and it works good.

HI,

My main computer (a Compaq EVO D510 cmt 845 G CTO with Windows 2000, 2.0 GHz pent 4 ) is connected to the internet via cable (my provider is Comcast).  A Linksys  Etherfast wireless AP + cable/DSL router is installed on this computer.
I have two other computers with a wireless PCI-DLink DWL-650.
The first one (a DONNE LA MARQUE desktop) is 25 feet away from the main computer. On the D-Link air DWL-650 configuration utility, the link quality and the signal strength vary from 33% to 85%.  
This computer normally accesses the internet and shared files.
However, my third computer, a laptop (Toshiba) , located a floor up just above the main computer, and running on Windows Me, has a difficult time accessing the internet and shared files .  (link quality and signal strength may vary from 0 to 55%)

I checked for new driver or firmware and already installed it. The wireless network installation has been made by a professional, and has been working properly up to a month ago.

My questions are:
1)      Where is it coming from? Comcast, The router, the D-Link PC card?

2)      What can I do to get a better link quality, or at least a link to stay connected when I am working on my laptop.  I heard about an antenna, but it seems that my DWL-650 cannot support it. Do I have to change something?

3)      I wanted to install my laptop downstairs (half story high) 50 feet away from the main computer. I have one wall between them. When I am downstairs 30 feet away, I have 60% link …

SMC Barricade Wireless router (SMC2804WBR) (802.11g and/or 802.11b)
SMC Wireless PCI card (SMC2802WB) (802.11g rated)
Win2K Pro

Cable Modem->Router->1 wall , outside, 1 wall->Wireless card at about 30-50ft total distance between router and card
Not using any security (no WEP,WPA)

Not only am I not getting above 36Mbps(and maybe for 10 minutes at best - generally closer to 12), but I also lose my signal every couple hours and when this happens I cannot reconnect without *unplugging* the router and reconnecting it.  Doubly strange because I generally get a signal strength between 30-50% (fair).  Once I lose connection, however, the wireless card can no longer see the router at all - the included utility doesnt locate it.  I've tried throttling throughput on both ends to ~11Mbps but not only does this not solve my problems completely but there is also the fact that the whole point of buying g-rated devices was for the incresaed throughput.

Note that this loss of connection doesn't affect the systems connected by cat-5 to the router, only the wireless device.

I need to know everything anyone can tell me about
1) How to get a stronger signal or at least a more consistent one (short of adding another access point - if I have to put a device every 20ft to keep the signal I might as well drill through the walls and go cat-5).  In particular, because i know nothing abut wireless technology I need to know things like: whether the antennae should not be close to the …

Alright, I've got a Symon RDU LED sign. Got it for $30 on eBay, problem is, the software for it is $2700. So, I have to come up with the software myself. I also have to come up with the comunication cable myself. I've taken the controller box apart, its got...

a SP232ACP RS-232 controller chip
a SN74LS153N Dual 4-Input multiplexer chip
2 DS8921 Differential Line Driver/Reciever pair chips

a few resistors, a voltage regulator, some diodes, etc

anyways, its got 2 DB25 ports, one for input to the control box from the computer, and an output for another control box in a little daisy chaining action

Now, on the side of this thing it says:

1st Power Supply After PC / Local
Input: RS-232C RX PIN 2
Output: RS-422A TX PINS 13 and 14


So, I'm assuming the input port takes a RS-232C serial cable, DB-25 terminated, and the DTE-to-DCE fits into pin2 on the DB25 port.. Looking at the board, pins 2 and 3 go to the RS-232 controller chip, so I'm also assuming the DCE-to-DTE fits into pin 3 on the DB25... and 1 and 7 are linked, and they go to one of the DS8921 chips, and then to the voltage regulator, and finally to the power connector, to the fuse, and the power supply board, so I guess its a ground...

At the moment, I'm just trying to get this thing connected to my computer, I'll figure out the command set later, I just need a circuitry nut to tell me if I'm right about ANY of this, or if I'm gonna blow myself up.

I am setting  up a wireless lan with two building. the problem is the two building are 1 and half blocks away ( i think arrpox about 100 feet away?)
- how do i set up the wireless lan network.
- what devices do i need (access points)?
- Do i need a repeater in between them since they are pretty far?
- Is it gonna be secure ?  
- Is there another way using like connecting with lan modem between two building (this would not be wireless connection but if it's more efficient and effective than wireless i will consider this option)?

thanks in advance

Hi experts,

Have a simple question here.  

We are in the process of setting up a network environment in a 25,000 square feet retail store.

I got some feedback saying that better to split the network to several switches/hubs, e.g. one switch for each individual group of users; i.e. one for admin office, one for logistics and each individual one for each individual counters. According to them, the distance between equipment and switch must not be too long. Shorter is better, if stability of network systems are required.

So, my question is, should I follow their advice? Actually what are the main disadvantages if I directly plug the Parallel UTP CAT5e cable to the LAN point, instead of plugging to the switches?

Please advise. Thank you.

In recent months two different customers have asked the following question (paraphrasing here): "I want to have a keyboard and monitor for my PC in my den as well as the existing ones in my home office, so I can use my PC in the den. How can I do this?"

My solution: "Get a life, some hiking boots, and make that trek down the hall when you need to use the PC!", but I didn't think that's what they wanted to hear.

This is sort of the reverse of the common situation where you have two PCs and want to use only one monitor and keyboard. Anyone ever set anything like this up?
 
Thanks in Advance, Bill

Hello,
i have Dell power edge 2200 server, which is configured fine with w2k server. As i have few servers, i use to move the keyboard and monitor from one computer to another. That far everything is Ok. But when i restart the Dell server, it stops at the keyboard/monitor, if they are not added to the server. How i could prevent server from this error, couse it is not normaly to have all the time the keyboard/monitor at this one PC. Hope on your understanding.
