The term broadband commonly refers to high-speed Internet access that is always on and faster than the traditional dial-up access. Broadband includes several high-speed transmission technologies such as digital subscriber line (DSL), cable, fiber optics, wireless (for which there is a separate topic), satellite and broadband over powerlines (BPL).

I have an Asus RT-88U 3100 Ac router..about a year old.
I t is connected to CCI modem which is the internet provider.
I also have powerline  extenders for to plug into the walls in separate rooms for to pick up wifi instead of wireless.
Recently these extenders have not been working properly.
The android box that I was using became frozen and cannot be reset.
Then the WAN  connection on the router stopped working;and I had to return to wireless everywhere.
The light on the WAN indicator is always red now,
I cannot use anothe LAN as a WAN connection.
Finally I connected a cable from the WAN connection on the router to a LAN connection on the same router.
It still remained red
Does this mean that it is the ASUS router WAN connection that is at fault;and do you have any other suggestions?
Thank you,
Leo Boyle

I am unable to connect to a remote site using Citrix Receiver software through our SonicWALL NSA 2600 firewall.
This is the case on several machines behind out firewall, when I test on a computer outside of out firewall the Citrix Receiver works OK.

The remote site is a vendor's site that we have no control over and they require that we use Citrix Receiver in order o connect to their web-server, the connection will not establish though and just gets stuck "negotiating" the connect. Or the reciever disappears and a black window appears instead of the remote machine.

I have a customer who is experiencing slow online service with Comcast. I have done the basic cleaning eliminating junk files, malware, etc without success. Rebooted the router, changed internet channels, etc. with now success. Since they are connected wirelessly I ran a speed test with Speakeasy. The test defaulted to the Miami NOC where the download speed was ridiculous at 15mbs however when I switched to a different NOC she was getting the speed that she was paying for which was 60-80 mbs and higher. I did this with a different speed test provider as well which showed the same disparity. The only one that showed a fast download time was Comcast's own speed test which of course I expected because in 10 years I have never seen a slow speed using Comcast's tests.
I hooked her up directly to the router with Ethernet and while the speeds were obviously better I received the same differences from various NOCS. Miami low, Atlanta, New York and California high.
My question is this. Does Comcast or for that matter any provider determine which NOC a router goes to by default or is it configurable somehow within the browser?
Or better yet, what am I missing here?
Any help on the subject will help me before I contact Comcast support for her which I'm reluctant to do until I get more information. I'm sure that they will run their test and say everything is OK and it isn't.  Thank you very much for any help anyone can provide.
Kindest regards,

I wish to use BT wholesale broadband test but it requires Google Flash player so I installed flash player from the link given on BT Wholesale Broadband speed test site and trying to run the test again gives the same error message as before, indicating that Flash player must be installed and enabled.
How can I check the following :

a) Flash player is installed
b) flash player is enabled

In the event that flash player is not enabled, how do I enable it.
The PC operating system is  Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

It should be noted that I have run BT wholesale broadband speed test before on the same machine which at that time didn't have flash player installed. Maybe there are alternative version of BT Wholesale Broadband speed checker.

Hi,

We have a 4mb broadband connection with Sky and when contacting them they are unable to improve the speed due to our location in UK, our neighbour has signed up to a new connection with BT and they have achieved 5mb so we know there is not going to be a magical fix.

Due to a recent house extension we are looking at updating to Sky Q but also aware the current routers wireless range falls about 6 meters short of what we need so what are our options:

1) Will Sky Q with 2 TV's work along with other devices such as phones and a laptop on the current connection?
2) Will a wireless booster box in the extension work?
3) **maybe part of point 2** Is it possible feed a network cable from the current router to where the 2nd TV will be located where it can plug into a second router or a booster which will fed the TV/Sky box by cable and serve the other devices wirelessly?
4) Should we get a second phone line and use 2 *4/5mb connections one for each sky Q box or does sky Q need to use the same router for the subscription to work?
5) Is satellite internet any good?  It looks expensive.

I will really appreciate peoples advice on this as I am not 100% confident Sky would give realistic advice and then my parents would be tied into a £150 bill for 12 months.

Hello,

I have one hyperv server and two virtual machines on it. VM01 (10.0.0.50) and VM02 (20.0.0.50)

There are two different person. user1 and user2. these both are on different remote locations.

User1 want to access VM01 remotely and User2 want to access VM02 remotely. I dont want to use teamviewer

I have one Public static IP address on my broadband router and Private IP address on the router is 10.0.0.1.
tell me how I can give them remote access. because I can use port forwarding but It will use for one VM. how my second vm can be accessable to my second user?

With my Tenvis camera connected to my home's Wifi SSID and my laptop
connected to my home's Wifi, I could http://Tenvis_IP:7777  & see what
the camera sees.

However, at my company, I can't connect my Tenvis camera to the Guest
Wifi as it requires registration plus clicking a couple buttons on the
landing page before the device could connect to Guest network.

Now, I'm replacing the Tenvis with my iPhone using the steps below:
https://www.gottabemobile.com/how-to-turn-your-old-iphone-into-a-security-camera/

However, with both my iPhone & laptop assigned an IP each by Guest Wifi, my
laptop still can't ping the iPhone & can't see the videos despite that both iPhone
& laptop have registered successfully & clicked the necessary buttons to get
authenticated/connected to Guest.  How can I overcome this?

I plan to put the iPhone in my car to monitor the car (using the laptop) as my car
is parked within the vicinity of the company.  I could sign up a data plan for the
iPhone but it's going to cost quite a bit to monitor 22 days, ten hrs per day so
tagging onto the free Guest Wifi.

Dear Experts

We have a network of less than 15 systems with 2 broadband connections from 2 different ISP's.
1. ISP1 in their provided router configured the network of 192.168.1.0/24 and their provided router ip 192.168.1.17 and function's as DHCP server in the LAN
2.. similarly ISP 2 also configured in their provided router with network of 192.168.1.0/24 and their provided router ip 192.168.1.1 and this also funcationing as DHCP server in the LAN.2
Both the routers of both ISP's are connected to the same switch at the present I have turned off ISP 2 router to avoid 2 DHCP in the LAN.
3. have linux server working as internal private DNS
As per the experts exchange experts advice I am in process of procuring the router with 2WAN port so that each one of the ISP will be connected to one of the WAN port and will stop DHCP service on the router level and will configure DHCP server in linux server. I would like to divide the network of 192.168.1.0/24 to 4 subnets, as following
a)192.168.1.0  of ip range 1 to 62
b)192.168.1.64 of ip range 65 to 126
c)192.168.1.128 of ip range 128 to 190
d) 192.168.1.192 of ip range from 193 to 254

attached DHCP configuration, request to please review the defined 2 subnets statements in the config
Soution design and suggestion for the below please:
in this dhcp server the defined 2 subnets i,e access point-1 to one of the subnet of above a) i,e 192.168.1.0  of ip range 1 to 62 and access point-2 to another …

We have purchased a Netgear Nighthawk X10 ad700 model R900 router and we are unable to use it.
The issue is when we configure the router, they are getting connected but then they are automatically getting reset within an hour. we are not able to configure again for the day.
Can someone help us to sort out this issue?

So i have a Standard home broadband Netgear router (DGND3700v2) it connects  to ADSL using a phone line.

can I use a RJ11 TO RJ45 converter and then plug that phone line straight into the outside ethernet port of an ASA5506 and then configure the port to use PPPoe with the credentials from my ISP? would that work?

Thanks

Would it be a lot of data loss from SM to MM?
We have fiber from ISP [10Gb] is 9/125 SM going from SC to LC then into our LC 50/125 MM then into SM switch network module with SFP.

Would I have a lot of issues with that setup?

 I also read some people are using mode conditioning cables.  Will that help a lot?

My company use T1's extensively through CenturyLink and 1 location is operating on 6 miles of very poorly maintained copper pairs. While I understand the provisioned rate to be 1.544 I was wondering if there is such a thing as a minimum guaranteed speed as we are only able to get 1.2 out of the circuit. There are multiple interferers in the count and poorly or missing bonds/grounds. It's similar to trying to run a formula race car on a dirt road.

I have SonicWALL Firewall/Router and 5 public IP address. I am going to have 1G Fios connection soon; however, the my soniwall won't give the 1G connection speed due to the DPI.
I would like to create second network that outside of firewall and wondering if I can split by public IP address with separate router.  Do you have any solution for this?

I have a 20/100 internet connection. Im mirroring a couple NAS in a remote location, but its hogging my entire network connection. How do I limit that incoming connection to use only about half my bandwidth? Can this be done with ddwrt? Netgear etc? Im using Synology NAS and I know the particular port that is being used is 9960. I would image there was a way to say everything coming in on port 9960 has a quota of 50mps or something like that.

I always get confused / use firewall / router rules so infrequently that I don't know  what the right way to set these things up.

Can you help?

I have a VOIP service using a Grandstream HT-502 V1.2A gadget.  The call quality isn't always good.  That device is plugged directly into one of the ports on an actiontec router (left over from when we had verizon fios, but now we have cable internet 15down / 5 up speed.

I have lots of other devices plugged into a gig network switch in the basement that might be using the internet at the same time as the calls?  That gig network switch has 1 cable going over to the actiontec also (so there's only 2 cables on the lan side of the router).

To improve call quality, that's a job for QoS, right?

The attached picture is what I did in the actiontec router.  The grandstream has the ip of 192.168.1.52

But then i thought, should this be on the Ethernet/Coax or  Broadband Connection (Ethernet/Coax) sections? Did I at least get outbound rather than inbound correct?

But that just gets the call out of the house with highest priority.  Once it's on the web, it's fighting with all kinds of data / can't prioritize it, right?

Does the VOIP provider have any bearing on the quality of the calls? Iwe are using VOIPO.com).  is there  a way to substantiate / test where the poor qiuality - dropped fractions of a second in the conversation, etc.  NO stuttering, max headroom type things.  Just a m ssing sound here and there.

Hi Experts,

We mainly offer workstation and server support in the UK. The client here has broadband with another supplier, and we supplied the router only. However, now we have been asked a comprehensive questionnaire for PCI compliance (Credit card payments). We are wondering how to respond because it’s fairly involved. Any advice please?


Is there a current network diagram that documents all connections between the cardholder data environment and other networks, including any wireless networks?

Is there a process to ensure the diagram is kept current?

Is a firewall required and implemented at each Internet connection and between any demilitarized zone (DMZ) and the internal network zone?

Is the current network diagram consistent with the firewall configuration standards?

Do firewall and router configuration standards include a documented list of services, protocols, and ports, including business justification and approval for each?

Are all insecure services, protocols, and ports identified, and are security features documented and implemented for each identified service?

Is inbound and outbound traffic restricted to that which is necessary for the cardholder data environment?

Is all other inbound and outbound traffic specifically denied (for example by using an explicit "deny all" or an implicit deny after allow statement)?

Are perimeter firewalls installed between all wireless networks and the cardholder data environment, and are these …

Do cable broadband "splitters" work ?

Problem: one cable going into "TV Box" but if I remove this and use a "splitter". Does this mean I connect it to a cable modem?

Hi,

We have a newly installed Eircom router.

Our broadband is coming in through a cable coming from Eir, our national broadband provider, to the Eircom router.

- There has been a constant internet connection problem with the Eircom router for months, before and after the new Eircom router has been installed.

- The problem has been most noticeable on WiFi connected devices where WiFi internet connection would be lost for about 1 - 2 minutes every 15 minutes or so, can be random times sometimes, e.g. could be watching YouTube on laptop which uses WiFi and video could stop loading for 1 minute, would display internet disconnected at bottom right corner

- We have everything disconnected from the Eircom router.

- We have reset the Eircom router many times to try and fix the internet problem

- There was an Aruba IAP-305(RW) connected to the Eircom router which provides the WiFi as we disabled WiFi on Eircom router

- We have the Aruba IAP-305(RW) disconnected from Eircom router as we want to limit the test to just the Eircom router and broadband.

- I have heard that basic ping tests are not very helpful for testing performance.

- Ideally a 12 hour test may be better to test internet connection

We would like to know how to truly test all the parameters of the Eir broadband.

What would be the best way to test these parameters?  

Thanks,
Robbie

My cable provider just sent me a new cable modem to keep up with Docsys 3.1 standard.  It is a Samsung GX-MC990CL.  The interface my cable provider gives to configure it is not the one that is built in to it.  It is truly pitiful.

I would like to access the GUI that is built-in to this modem.

Does anyone know how?
