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.

A few days ago my Netgear router stopped working. So, I purchased a new one. It is the Netgear WNDR3400v3. My laptop is hardwired to the router. After setting everything up and running a speed test, I noticed that the download speed was only 70 Mb per second. Typically I get over 100 Mb per second.

My router is connected to a cable modem which was provided by my ISP (Spectrum). If I connect my laptop directly to the modem, the download speed exceeds 100 Mb per second.

I've seen information on the Internet suggesting that my router does not support download speeds that high. Netgear recommended changing the MTU. That didn't work. Yet another post I read recommended disabling IPv6. I haven't figured out how to do that on my router.

The fact that I can get full download speeds when connected directly to the modem implies that the router is the problem. I have opened a support ticket with Netgear, but I was just wondering whether anyone in the Experts community had any ideas.

Hi,
Having trouble with workstations running a new software program that uses a SQL DB on an SBS 2011 server (Medtech32 Medical Software.)
Disabling the Server's Firewall allows it to run on the workstations.  I've added the Firewall rules to the Server as stated by Medtech but it still doesn't connect.  Any ideas?
The ports as per their docs are:
TCP Port 3050  on internal LAN/WAN
UDP Port 300 on internal LAN/WAN

Thanks.

Hello - can a single port be set to jumbo frames on a Catalyst 3850 switch? If not, will setting it globally affect other ports where the client is not capable of Jumbo frames and needs a 1500 MTU?

Looks like the re-seller sold us network gear (routers, firewalls, switches, controllers) without any manufacture or 3rd party support.  Probably cost effective that way.  Now they getting me a support quote.  Tricky?

Questions.  Can they do it normally?  And does it mean I wont have any support even day 1 after installation?

This is in US and licensed large certified reseller.  Network gear, Cisco/PAN.

Wondering if anyone is using version 8 Arubas yet.  We are still on ver 6 and heard ver. 8 is buggy.
Also ver.8 requires a Mobility Master (hardware or VM)  Ver 6 does not require that.
This is when using two or more controllers for load balancing and redundancy.   Aruba is not advising to start with 6 and upgrade to v8. The topology is very different and will require us to rebuild the network for the upgrade. They recommend V8 from the beginning.
Wonder how mature ver.8 is.

Any information or experience about on that?  Thanks.

Wanted to see if anyone had any knowledge regarding providing 4G LTE as a backup line for an enterprise office.
I was investigating some Cisco / Meraki options, including :

- Cisco 890 series ISR
- Meraki router + Inseego (formerly Feenet Wireless) Skyus DS

Would anyone have any info or experience with one of these as a solution for a temp situation or as a backup solution.
Appreciate in advance.

From what I understand it is more common to use the B scheme when wiring a plug but just want to make sure before I dig into this. The cable will go up the wall, into a wall insert and then a new cable plugged from the insert to a laptop. The other end will plug directly to a port in a Linksys router. Later on I may install a second wall insert so instead of plugging directly into the router it would go wall insert and then router.

Does it matter if A or B is used unless you need a crossover? All home equipment.

Hi, is there a way to update the ProCurve 2510G so it won't use Java in the GUI? And yes, I know, there is the CLI and I'm using that one already too. Just wondering for the web interface. Sometimes it might come in handy. But it's hard to get it working in any current browsers apparently ...

Thank you

We were having a bad quality audio during a large conf. call (around 45 attendees) on Lync and customer thinks it is coming from lack of CoS configuration on LAN devices. Do switches (L2) also need to have a CoS Configuration? Is there an approved std. template for Lync Voice/Video ports etc. ?

Thanks;

Hello,
My wife is getting a work from home job that requires a wired network cable connection to her laptop and her office is on the other side of the house where the cable modem is located. Lucky for me we have a basement with easy access to the underfloor where the room is located.

I am planning on adding a wall jack near the cable modem and wiring it and running it up through the wall where her desk is located and wiring the other end into a jack that will be installed on that wall. Then a patch cable with two RJ45 connectors from the wall jack to a port in the router.

Question: Does it make any sense to use CAT 6 cable when my router is only gig speeds, I may get a faster router some day but there is no need for more than gig local speeds. It doesn't make any difference as far as internet speed since we only get 100 mbps internet speeds. Even considering that is there any future reason we would want CAT 6 speeds?

Question: Is there anything wrong with a Lowes or Home Depot type installation kit with crimpers and connectors, wires etc.? Not for a business office but it does need to be reliable.

Question: With CAT5e or CAT6 do I need to be careful what the wire comes in contact with? I think I have a pretty clean shot but it may need to cross over metal duct work unless that will cause a issue. If metal duct work will be a problem is there a conduit I can run it through that will shield it from any problems? or is there a certain distance to keep it away …

People moving into the new office but the network gear may not be ready yet.  Looking for a quick alternative for WiFi access just so users can go online.  
Saw that thread below from 2015 where a person says they ran office of 30 off this device following hurricane Sandy.
My office would be about 10-12 people day one.

Would that work as a temp solution?  Any suggestions appreciated.  Thanks!!

I've been watchin a video from Amazon on AWS Direct Connect. I see that a direct connection is made from Amazon Direct Connect PoP to a router in a co-location facility. The from there there is a circuit (say 1Gbps or 10Gbps) to the enterprise itself. The presentation at turns talked about the carrier owning the (a?) router and the customer owning the router. In the diagram attached below - the device labeled "Customer Gateway" is generally owned and configured by the end customer/user of Amazon Web Services? Or is that more typically owned by the carrier that is providing the data circuit? And finally if the carrier owns that device do they configure it or leave that to the customer? Thank you for clarifying this point for me.

I need some help if possible.  

My school is very much behind the times, so we are in need of upgrading.

Our president wants specifically to have wireless connections (literally no wires needed to connect a laptop to the system), a very simple way to record high-quality video and audio in the classrooms, and the ability to broadcast class sessions online in real time.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on this?

We are testing Cisco AnyConnect on one of our Cisco ASA 5545s.  I need to know how to add one of our networks so that VPN users can access their servers on that network while connected at home.  Can someone walk me through how to do this and how to find the existing networks that are reachable?  I can do it through ASDM or command prompt.  Thanks!

I have ext 213 which is BD3 Port 7. I need to move the line to a different port in the office. We have a patch panel and I have a intelli probe. All I should have to do is take the wire from BD3 Port 7 and move it to the proper spot on the patch panel (where new outlet will be)?

I’m trying to learn the phone system, I was able to setup a different line but this one is being difficult.

A company I am supporting has a SonicWALL TZ600 firewall.

We need to audit and determine how much internet bandwidth each user is using and what type of bandwidth is being used (for streaming video, streaming audio, file downloads, etc.)

How can this be setup within the SonicWALL TZ600 firewall?

I noticed a lot of contractors mount electrical receptacles above the racks up in the cable tray.  About 8' high.  Is that a normal practice?
When you bring a heavy UPS on the bottom of the cabinet the cable doesn't reach that high for the 10Amp twist lock plug.  And not very comfortable to run thick UPS cables up 8' to the tray above the rack.  
Is this a new standard practice these days?

Is there a reasonably inexpensive device that can show the signal and can test speed?  Or any other ways?

Greetings.

I am trying to setup static routing and need some assistance please. I have two routers that talk to each other but I need them to talk to an additional router on a different network. Here is what I have. Router 1 and router 2 are a cisco 1841 and the other is an asus

Router1
FE0 172.46.23.1       255.255.255.192

I typed in "ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.0.3.0"
I checked the routing table using sh ip route and I do not see nothing about 10.0.3.0 network.

ROUTER 2
FE0 172.16.46.       255.255.255.192


I typed in "ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.0.3.0"
I checked the routing table using sh ip route and I do not see nothing about 10.0.3.0 network.
HERE is a 3rd router which is a SOHO router
internal 10.0.3.1

so I have configured static routing on the first router with the following.

10.0.3.1 and have forwarding setup on the router

i setup static interface for the asus router also

We have an HP 2920-48 port POE switch. We also have 2x HP 2920-48 port NON-POE switches. I was surprised to find today that our new VOIP phones are actually get power when plugged into the NON-POE switch?! Is this possible?? If so, are there possible issues I should consider when configured in this manner. I know we are having issues with the phones losing calls before they can be answered...wondering if related.
