HI,
  My ISP recently provided me with the usage graphs below for our fibre circuit while we were troubleshooting an incident. Unfortunately they cannot supply me with these numbers on an ongoing basis. Is there any way I can produce these stats myself?

I have a Sonicwall tz215 as the gateway device and multiple windows and linux servers both physical and VM's

thanks
Bob

I'm working with a company with particularly tricky Internet connection requirements.  We’ve looked at the usual ADSL/FTTC options (which are pretty much non-starters) and they’re currently running on a satellite Internet connection.  However, it’s not working well for them because of the high latency of the link.

We therefore ran a proof-of-concept using the mobile phone network (their service provider of choice is Vodafone).  Very rough and ready – literally a USB dongle on a broom handle with plastic sheeting gaffer-taped on it for weatherproofing!  They ran that for a few weeks and were very pleased with the performance.   But it's obviously not a solution you'd want to rely upon.

So we’re looking for a company in the Central Scotland area who would be able to supply and install a proper outdoor antenna / mast (and possibly router) to connect an existing Ethernet network at an 8-person office to the Internet via the Vodafone mobile network.  

Any candidates, please?

I am in the process to rolling out some Dell Venues to our sales team. The my documents folder is redirected to the server. Here is the issue:
When on a hardline dsl connection and on VPN, I can access the redirected folders
When on our GuestWiFi (outside network), and on VPN, I can access the redirected folders
When on the verizon broadband connection and on VPN, I cannot access the folders. The list of folders show up, but with grayed out X's on them. Looking at the properties of the documents folder, shows the redirected path. Here is the hard coded redirected path
\\servername\hpredirected\username$, even manually typing this does not show the folders. Now if I type \\servername\E$\hpredirected\username, it shows the files and folders just fine. Discovering this, led me to believe that this was a DNS issue.  
So far the only solution that has worked is if  I use the windows repair tool by tweaking.com, and choose the option to repair winsock and rebuild dns cache.
I tried to run the manual commands to repair the winsock (netsh winsock reset) and with poweshell remove-netipaddress to fix the tcp stack. Doing this manually did not fix it. Operating system is W8.1 on a domain. It would be nice if I knew all the commands that the tool was running, but more importantly why this is happening in the first place.

I am attempting to establish a wifi signal available throughout a large 2 story retail space.  The structure has thick concrete walls  and in addition there are mini conference rooms where the signal needs to be.  I have several Linksys AC/N/G routers to work with.

Can I configure each router as an Access Point, (No DHCP), and give them all the same SSID name.  I want the guest to be able to stay connected continuously/seamlessly through the retail space.  Also I purchased an AmpedWireless Access point yesterday, connected it via the instructions and it configured it's SSIDs as AmpedWireless-24 and AmpedWireless-5G, it worked connected to these SSIDs but I want all devices to have the same SSID/wireless key if possible.

How?

thanks,

Hello,

I have a question regarding Mobile Broadband Bonding. Recently I had some issues with my home internet connection and I'm thinking about installing LTE connection in my home. However I would like the bandwidth as high as possible, so I'm thinking about bonding the connections which as far as I know - is possible.

On each of the mobile modems I can reach up to 70 Mbit according to my service provider. I would like to connect at least two modems to achieve 140 Mbit connection.

I know of ifenslave software for linux that in theory should be able to do this. Could anyone provide some helpful information on how to do it?

I believe there are many options on doing this. Two I can think of I will base on my existing hardware:

1) TP-Link TL-WDR4300 router running Gargoyle.

This router I've been using for at least 3 years. It's running linux so installing additional software shouldn't be a problem. I believe USB hub could be used there for connecting multiple mobile modems (dongles). Gargoyle software natively has support for mobile modems, however I'm not sure if the software can support bonding out of the box (can't seem to find any helpful information on that).

2) Computer running Linux (preferably Debian or Ubuntu)

Two modem dongles can be connected to a computer and LAN port could be used to distribute bonded signal to WAN port of forementioned router.

I believe it is possible but I need some more information from Experts about configuration.

Recently Cable modem (Motoola Surfboard SB6141) started rebooting on it's own. This happens randomly, and sometimes twice or thrice a day.

Yesterday Time Warner technician visited and checked all splitters and also ran couple of tests (Packet loss, speedtest etc..) and said in-house wiring is EXCELLENT. He even checked the OUTSIDE box (from where, cable comes into the house)

Unfortunately, Today morning again - Modem rebooted on it's own. Following is the LOG from Modem
