I currently have a SonicWALL TZ 200 configured with WAN connections on 2 interfaces. I recently purchased a HughesNET satellite connection and I want hook this up to the SonicWALL (And add it to the failover/load balancing). However, once I received the Modem from HughesNET (HT2000) I learned that it does not have a "Bridge" mode built into the router. I cannot disrupt my current Subnet (needs to stay the same). Does anyone know if there a way to configure the interface for the modem/router combo into the SonicWALL so it will work properly?

Thanks in advance.

Intro

I would like to setup my personal firewall directly to the Netgear DM200 ADSL Modem (in modem mode).

This would allow me to connect directly through VPN to my work ASA5510.

Setup

ADSL Phone line <-> ADSL filter/splitter <-> Netgear DM200 <-> ASA5505 <->BT HomeHub5

I have set the DM200 in modem mode with the username "bthomehub@btbroadband.com", i dont know the password or the Authentication method "PAP or CHAP or MSCHAP"

The ASA is also asking for an VPDN group which I have no details for....

The DM200 is working because I can access th einternet when connected to the LAN port when in Modem mode.

Issue

Ultimately i just want to securely VPN into my work ASA but it would be useful to implement the Firewall for all outgoing internet traffic instead of placing it behind the BT Homehub5 that im replacing .

I would really appreciate it if anybody could offer any advice or help.

Working on an old Surface with Windows RT 8.1: every time I tried to install an app from the app store, I get an error that says:
"Your purchase couldn't be completed. This app can't be purchased because your current Internet connection is too slow. Please try again using a different connection."

It's not a problem with the internet connection: it's working fine & it's a fast, broadband connection (7mbps down/31mbps up)
I tried resetting Windows 8.1: but that didn't help.
I tried running WSRESET.EXE as admin to reset the Windows store cache:  no help.
Ran Windows Update troubleshooter to fix issues with Windows update: 2 problems were found & fixed, but it didn't solve the issue.
Same error on different wifi networks, so it's not the network.

The only thing that worked was uninstalling the Wireless adapter driver without deleting the drivers & then re-installing it. But, that only worked for a while then the error came back.  removing the device & reinstalling it again fixed it again for a while.  Also, running IPCONFIG /RELEASE & then IPCONFIG /RENEW seems to be another temporary fix.

I looked for newer drivers for the Wifi adapter but couldn't find any.  Microsoft doesn't offer any downloads for Windows RT: you have to use Windows Update.

Searching online only produced a huge number of posts that said basically repeated the message I was seeing on the screen:  "check your internet connection" or "your connection is too slow, try a faster …

Hello,

So, just wondering if i plug a WAN directly into the 2911's GE0/0 and then connect GE0/1 to the switch... will the Cisco 2911 pass traffic from int GE0/0 to GE0/1 (by default, but after enabling GE0/0 & GE0/1 with a 'no shutdown' command on both interfaces?!

Hello -
 There are various CAT6a cables out there.  With cabling contractors tho, if you don't specify the type they will go with the cheapest basic one - U/UTP type.  This is completely non-shielded at all.
There are a lot more: S/FTP, F/UTP, SF/UTP, and U/UTP?

What would be a recommended type for the new office run?  Thanks in advance.

We are using CAT6a for all horizontal runs.  This is rated to 100m at 10Gbps.  CAT6 can run 10Gbps at up to 55m.  So what happens if we use CAT6 patch cable on the patch panel.  Would we be limited to 55m total length as this is the weakest link?

A client has a separate construction site in the next state in a trailer. Both locations have broadband service.  They were asking about "video conferencing" between their meeting room for 10 people with 1 or 2 people at this remote site.

This would be once in a while, maybe 2 times a month for an hour at a time. At the main office they do have a 50" TV on the wall.

I looked on line for a documenting a spectrum of options but came up empty. That at least is what I envision is available?

I could see the low end being that they could use a laptop's webcam fed to the TV on the wall. Maybe spin the laptop sitting in the center of the table around to see the person speaking. And at the construction site, they could use a laptop with camera.

And the upper end could have several cameras that can be turned and zoomed, mics around the room and better quality speakers.

Does anyone have advice on options, prices and how to help them decide what they need and want?

Thank you.

I have actually two satellite dishes serving Internet to our remote facility.  

Based on machine MAC address, is it possible for certain machines to be provided service from one dish, while other machines are served from the the second dish?

What would be the technical issues involved in doing this?

Thank you very much.

i have a customer who needs to have emails coming into their server via two WANS right now. long story.
i have set up their lease line in and everything works fine. and connected their adsl both to a dreytek 2830. i have configured load balancing so that all outbound traffic goes over the lease line. port 25 is forwarded to thier server listening on both #WANs however it only works over the lease line. if i try  a connectivity test on the domain using the ADSL line it fails connecting on port 25.
what am i missing?

Residential account installed a server and SonicWall. Haven't asked Spectrum if commercial account is an option and prefer not to.

Ubee router, according to Spectrum is in gateway mode, meaning all data is passed onto the SonicWall. Problem is SonicWall will allow network for awhile however the Ubee device acts as if it competes the only way to get it to work again is by resetting. When this happens it appears the Ubee modem resets and is no longer in gateway mode. According to Spectrum a soft reset should not allow gateway mode to be removed.

Anyone know the best way to configure Ubee Spectrum cable modem to a SonicWall? Does Spectrum offer a better modem option, Ubee seems to be extremely limited.

Thank you.

Hey all, i have an issue that external calls has noise, delayed audio from the external side. Internal calls are fine.
We recently changed from the Telstra supplied modem to a Draytek Modem. All ports have been opened up the same as they were on the Telstra one, all lines and SIP registered straight away, however i have not been able to resolve the noise.
As Draytek have alot more advanced firewall settings, QOS, I'm not sure what feature / settings i need to change to test.
We are running freepbx 2.11.

Thanks

Hello IT Pros.

I'm new to Ubiquiti, and wondering if someone here has experience setting up a network using Ubiquiti hardware?
Nothing has been implemented so far.

Dear All,

I would like to configure the connectivity on my home but I'm having some doubts and would like your help in order to configure the best way possible.

Devices:
Modem:  TPLink (TD-W8901N)
Router: Linksys (WRT1900ACS)

Currently I have two different options to configure internet connectivity:

1- Allow the TPLink to connect using PPoE on PV2 and specify user and password on the Modem and connect the cable from the TPLink to the internet connection on the Router Linksys (WRT1900ACS), so using this way we will receive internal IP Address from the TPLink instead of the WAN IP on the Internet Connection in the Linksys router.

2- Set the TPLink as Bridge Connection and connect the cable to the Internet Port on WRT1900ACS and configure the Router to connect using the PPoE on the Linksys and just use the TPLink as bridge.

Can you help me to understand the best recommended configuration and some explanation why just to understand?

Also would like to know if there any required configuration on the TPLink like VCI or VPI or something specific to have better performanc from the ISP?

I'm currently having performance issue on the connectivity and wanted to undertand the best way to setup the connectivity.

Thanks in advance,

This is a general question to show my ignorant side.  We have construction going on at my business and they need to widen the driveway.  There are wires that need to be re-located for this construction project and the general contractor notes that there is 1 T1 lines and several fiber lines.  The fiber lines, I know, are run by the local cable company to provide us with digital phones and broadband internet.  I am guessing that the T1 is for the PRI for my ShoreTel phone system.  Is it possible to service my phone system some other way via those fiber lines or is the T1 the only way that I will be able to function?

Hi everyone;

I'm encountering an issue with Outlook when sending emails after moving to a new office and install a new fiber broadband internet line (Sending through webmail or from phones is working).

With SSL encryption, port number 465 the outlook shows that the server does not support this type of encryption.

With TLS encryption, port number 587 the error is the connection to the server was interrupted.

Anyone encounter this issue before?

Any suggested solution is highly appreciable.

Thank you.

I am trying to implement a new network infrastructure.

Plan is to have an ASA 5508-X in our head office, and a number (starting with 4) ASA 5506-X devices in our small branch offices. Plan is to have the branch offices route all traffic via a VPN to the head office, so the 5506s just need to connect to a ISP, bring up a VPN tunnel, and maybe have a DCHP server or relay.  No filtering or examination of any traffic will occur on the branch office devices, this will all happen at head office. Also, the head office device wil be managed by an vFMC console, while I plan to just use the inbuilt GUI for the branch office devices. Since this is such a simple config, and the branch offices could cope with being down for a week, I did not order support for these devices.   Possibly a mistake. :(

All devices are running FTD 6.2.0.2-51, the latest.

Anyway, the issue I have is that I cannot get the ASA 5506-X devices to connect to an ISP. A couple of sites have ADSL connections with PPPoE. It looks like the ASA 5506-X does not have any sort of dialer, so it cannot be configured to authenticate. Seems a pretty basic feature to be missing, usually I would have just set the ADSL modem/router up to just be a modem, and used the firewall to authenticate.

Next attempt was to set up "Half bridge mode", (AKA RFC1483) on the ADSL modem, and let it authenticate an just give the ASA 5506-X the static IP via DHCP. I set up a modem to do this, plugged in a laptop, and it worked as …
