Networking hardware includes the physical devices facilitating the use of a computer network. Typically, networking hardware includes gateways, routers, network bridges, modems, wireless access points, networking cables, line drivers, switches, hubs, and repeaters. But it also includes hybrid network devices such as multilayer switches, protocol converters, bridge routers, proxy servers, firewalls, network address translators, multiplexers, network interface controllers, wireless network interface controllers, ISDN terminal adapters and other related hardware.

I am new to using Verizon FIOS. It is not available in my area, but a client of mine built a new house where it is available, and advised that they had the network wiring under control with a local installer.

Now the house has about 15 STB wall ports -  each with an IP address on the Verizon router.

My question is: Can these be used as the ethernet cabling (when not used for a set top box)... or are they strictly for set top boxes?

Thanks for any info. Not having seen FIOS before I am confused.

Hi

2x 2920 Core switches with 2x HP Edge switches connecting

If you have a stacked pair of switches (so 2x HP Procurve 2920 connected in a ring configuration with stacking cables) - then how should trunks be configured (etherchannels for the non HP switch aware) to access switches?

If I go to the Menu CLI and it lists the ports of both switches, I assume that if I setup a trunk on ports 23 and 24 on switch 1 then I need to setup the same on switch 2.  

- Do I set these up as two trunks with 2 ports from each switch contributing?  (ie - Trunk 1 with ports from Switch 1 ports 21,22 and Switch 2 ports 21,22, Trunk 2 with ports from Switch 1 ports 23,24 and Trunk 2 with ports from Switch 2 ports 23,24
- Or do I set them up as four trunks? (Ie Trunk 1 with ports from Switch 1 ports 21,22, Trunk 2 with ports from Switch 1 ports 23,24, Trunk 3 with ports from Switch 2 ports 21,22, Trunk 4 with ports from Switch 2 ports 23,24)

Hopefully makes sense  - I have tested it with option 1 above and fails over without issue but just wanted to confirm the best practice

Thanks

if you replicate data between your primary SAN to a DR SAN, what assurances and checks need to be performed to verify the health/reliability of the link between the sites and the replication process? What risks are there with such a setup, and what best practices/monitoring need to be in place to minimise those risks? what evidence could be requested to verify these risks are well managed with best practices?

I am running sql server 2008 R2. Everything seems to be running just fine.  The server is running on Scale hyperconverged servers.
When I try to run the report from my own desktop using studio management, or even when I RDP into the server, it does not work.
The report is called  "all blocking transactions".
Here is the error message.
sql error
When I log into the server directly via the console, the report works fine.   All other reports work just fine from my own desktop or even via RDP, it's just the one called "all blocking transactions" that does not work.

Any idea's if this is a sql issue or some kind of network problem, but I doubt it's a network issue, as all other reports are running just fine.

Just had my solarwinds monitoring alarm go off on our Cisco core switch 192.168.1.1.
As you can see in my attachment. Pinging to our core is hitting peaks and valleys, all other devices on that subnet and are server vlan our having high ping times.

How would I further diagnois what is causing the issue? I'm sure if I reload the core it will clear up but I need to find and elimate the issues so it doesn't happen again.

Thank you in advance!

My 10yr old Netgear WNR3500 seems too old and only giving up to 10Mb with our new equipment.  
Its RangeMax wireless-N Gigabit router.  Been good for us but.. for the last few years with newest devices seems compatibility issues there.

Should we stay with Netgear and get the latest model or some other good options around there?
Thanks.

I was experiencing significant interference and resulting wifi issues connecting a Lenovo Yoga 910 (which has limited USB ports) to my wifi network at 2.4 mhz.  I was using an USB 7 port hub which was adding to the problem.  I switched renamed the default network SSIDs which were the same at 2.4 and 5, then connected via the 5 mhz band and everything starting working very well with one exception.  My HP 8610 officejet printer operates solely at 2.4 mhz and I cannot figure out how to print (transmit the signals) from my laptop operating at 5 mhz to the printer wirelessly.

Can this be done and how?

Thank you for your assistance.

Devices:
Google Home,
Aruba IAP-305 (RW)
NordVPN


I am trying to set up a VPN for my Google Home so it will register as being in the US. I am currently in Ireland and have purchased a subscription to NordVPN.  From what I understand, a VPN cannot be put on the actual Google Home device.

I currently make a lot of calls to the US. Google Home offers free calls in the US but is not available here in Ireland. This is one of the main things I want to get from my Google Home.

If the net result of the VPN makes Google Home look like its in the US, I do not want the rest of my tech devices to think they are in that location, i.e all of my other tech devices have locations in Ireland.

Regards,
Robbie

Have a environment where I want to restrict internet to all computers except of 2.
Looking for a router that instead of blocking the once I want to restrict I should be able to block all and allow the the few I want to allow (a ip range)
Not a big network no fancy router simple
it's about 25 devices all have a static ip configured on the device

I'm trying to add routing port (fa) but it only allows me to add switching port.  When I add switching port it does not allow me to configure it with an IP.  I'm trying to add it on router 1841.  Thanks in advance.

I am trying to add a non cisco SFP between two catalysts, and am getting the error %PHY-4-SFP_NOT_SUPPORTED: The SFP in (PortNo#) is not Supported.

I have tried running the commands:

Switch(config)#service internal
Switch(config)#no errdisable detect cause gbic-invalid
Switch(config)#service unsupported-transceiver
Switch(config)#int gi0/49
Switch(config-if)#no shutdown
Switch(config-if)#do copy run start

However, the issue is still occurring. I have rebooted the switch after the above with no joy. Cable being used is a StarTech 3m SFP+ 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10Gbe) Twinax Cable. I will be upgrading the firmware to 15.2.6 while waiting for a reply.

Any help will be appreciated.

I'm looking to equip my home with ethernet and decided I would buy CAT 6 to do this.  However, the box I received says "CAT 6E 600 MHz CMR."  Is this legit or should I return it?  I've read that it may be really CAT 5e but don't want to use it if it is.  

Here's what I think the cable looks like.  I looked inside the cable but haven't stripped it yet:

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.

So I have always used Cisco with 10GbE stack cable's where you stack each switch to the one below and the last to the first so if an individual switch goes down the rest of the stack stays up.

I am now looking at a Meraki setup where we have a small stack on several floors going back to two switches that have the external connections. 1Gb is fine here, I don't need the 10Gb as this is just for desktops not servers.

The two switches have SFP to the first in each switch stack, the first switch then has a copper uplink to the other switches. This seems odd to me.

I would have thought that I should copper all the switch stacks from first to last and then the last in the stack copper to the next switch stack. That way all stacks have the SFP for normal operation but can fail to copper to the next switch I the stack up or down and the stack can fail across to the next stack if the SFP switch goes down.

The network provider in my area recently shut down their 2G service and now my GSM modem doesn't work. Is there another kind of modem that would be compatible with a 3G network? I've looked a bunch of other places and it doesn't really seem to be terribly clear about it.

I've got a Dell XPS 8700 (24GB RAM)  with :
-1 Built-in Realtek 1GB Ethernet Port
-Intel Pro/1000 Dual GB Ethernet card
-HP quad port GB Ethernet card (Intel Drivers)

I'm studying for CCENT/CCNA and renewing some old Microsoft certs.  I have been out of the networking game for quite some time.  I don't have the means to purchase server grade equipment at the moment and would like to use the desktop as a Management box if possible.

    -Can I bridge an interface to a VM and have that port plugged into a router on a different subnet?
      -Will I open myself up to a world of hurt for having multiple interfaces with different IP addresses?
        -Is this a situation where I should "Bridge" connections?

        Finally, did I pose this question correctly?

        Thank you for any and all advice/criticism.

        Good morning IT pros.

        I'm new to Ubiquiti, wondering how to make these 4 VLANs work with the equipment you see on the screen shot?
        Do you have links that provide step by step or ideas how to implement that setup?

        Do I need or can I trunk ports on this equipment?
