Wireless networking is a method by which homes, telecommunications networks and enterprise (business) installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations. Wireless telecommunications networks are generally implemented and administered using radio communication. This implementation takes place at the physical level (layer) of the OSI model network structure. The key hardware components of a wireless computer network include adapters, routers and access points, antennas and repeaters.

What sender do you recommend?
I have seen so many on Amazon and Ebay.

The distance is under 10m. The signal comes from a projector, output RCA, left and right.
I want to send that audio wireless to an audio amplifier which has Bluetooth receiver.
Most of the senders have a small battery incorporated, but I do not care, it can be also with power adapter. In fact those with battery have a kind of standby mode to avoid battery discharge. That is something that I do not really need.
One important request is this: when the analog signal comes (projector starts playing) I need that Bluetooth audio transmitter to send the signal right away. I do not want to go and press a button somewhere on transmitter. It should be like a self-activating, self-wake up mode, in case enters in standby. This is very important because that Bluetooth transmitter will be placed near the projector somewhere high and I cannot go every time there to activate manual the Bluetooth transmitter. I want to see this feature somewhere mentioned/explained before I buy it.

I am remodeling four homes.  I have  installed eight port structured wiring systems in all four.  Each wall jack (room) includes one ethernet jack, one cable jack, and one phone jack.  Everything is homerun to the utility room in the basement. Within the wiring cabinet located there, are punch down blocks and patch panels for all wires and cables. I would like to install  in each cabinet, an eight port router or switch to include an integrated DHCP server, and POE  jacks. One of these Jack's will be wired to a ceiling mounted Wi-Fi access point on the third floor in the center of the home. This device should be dual band AC 1200  or greater. Ultimately, the router or switch will be plugged into a cable modem providing Internet and telephone service. I am having trouble finding the router or switch, which needs to be small enough  to fit inside the wiring panel.  I also need an inexpensive access point device.  The cable modem will be mounted by the cable service provider outside the panel.  This arrangement will allow plug-and-play of any wired or wireless device in the home without the need for a PC  based DHCP server arrangement. Has anyone done this? Any recommendations? I need to keep this reasonably inexpensive.

A customer of mine has a problem where he often loses small items (such as keys and Bluetooth headsets).

We are looking to find the best system where a chip can be put on these small items and then these items can be located using an Android or Apple iPhone.

What are some of the best systems for doing this?

Got this cam Samsung from Costco SNH-V6431BN/US

I was able to connect to my WiFi but the connection is constantly dropping and I need to re-setup every time after that.  Does it have to be very close to the WiFi router?  Other devices are OK on the same router and not dropping.

2nd question.  Is it only designed for the mobile app?  Manual doesn't provide any instruction via the regular browser.

Thanks.

I'm a system administrator for a company that has about 500 computer users. One of our job sites currently has a mesh network setup. There is one main building where the internet comes in and using a Cisco wireless outdoor bridge that connects to another building point to point. The signal to that building drops significantly from around 25 Mbps to 5 Mbps. The equipment currently in place is pretty old, probably 10 years old now.  The other 3 buildings feed off the 2nd buildings signal which is already low, which means there's is lower. The entire site is about a mile total. The main building is about .5 mile to the second building and the other buildings are less than half mile or so from the second building which is where they get their connection from. Certain buildings drop their internet connection pretty frequently also.

I'm looking for some recommendations on good quality outdoor bridges that will help this job site improve their internet speeds and reliability.

Dear fellow Experts Exchange members:

I have an unusual question that requires the input of fellow members who have had hands-on experience with *ANY ONE* of a set of USB wireless AC network adapters.

Here is my situation: I have an office with two wireless access points (one on the left side and one on the right side of the building).  I have dropped the transmit power of each AP to try to get the wireless adapters in their three-or-four laptops to roam to the nearest AP when the users walk from one side to the other.

However, I am unable to find any "Roaming Aggressiveness" setting in the hardware properties of the wireless NIC for any of the current wireless NICs (internal and USB) in the laptops.

As it stands, the users all experience drops when moving from one side of the building to the other due to the wireless adapters in their laptops stubbornly trying to use the AP on the other side of the building despite there being an identically-configured AP literally right overhead.

I have a list of wireless AC adapters recommended by various sites, and I would like to know from any Experts Exchange members who have first-hand experience with *ANY ONE* of them if their device drivers provide a "Roaming Aggressiveness" setting.

Here is the list of wireless AC adapters:
  • Alfa Long-Range Dual-Band AC1200 Wireless USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter
  • Asus USB AC56 Dual-band Wireless-AC1200 Adapter
  • Asus USB-AC68
  • Buffalo Technology AirStation WI-U2-866D

An office around 2,000 sq. needs a solid AP or AP's .

Which one would you recommend.

I know that the ubiquiti are good, but I don't like the installation process.

Also I have a PoE switch so I need it to work with it.

How can you determine the MTU setting of a access point on a Cisco 5520 wireless controller from the command line.  From the command line, is there a command which will display what the access point MTU setting is?

Thanks

Hello, I'm currently having issues with trying to update my computer to a newer Windows instalment. I was recently given an old-ish Windows XP computer by a family member and they completely wiped the computer and refreshed it back to its factory settings. Ever since I've received it, I've been trying to gain access to the internet so I can update its anti-virus as well as update it to more modern instalments of Microsoft Windows.

However every time I've tried connecting it, it says that the wireless wifi networks (that ARE in range) are apparently not or it has lost connection to them? Please help me, as I feel like I'm running in circles trying to find out how to fix it :(

We need to install a Wireless connection between 2 building (about 30m apart), the devices will be put on the inside the windows so not on the outside of the buildings.

The devices will need to support bridged mode as they are just used to connect the networks that are on the each side, no client devices will connect to these devices.

Has anyone got a suggestion for a set of devices or know if the Cisco Aironet 2800 or 3800 can do function as required above?

I am looking for an outdoor security camera that can view an area remotely on a rural property. The area has excellent cell service on all major cell service providers, but no internet access. So I am looking for a single camera system that can be mounted on a light pole and stream video through a major cell provider like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, & T-Mobile. This is my main requirement to answer this question.

Optionally, the camera would be able to:
  • Take time laps images
  • Move PTO and Zoom
  • Saves data for later use
  • Operate on solar power
If any of these features are included in the answer, it would be a better answer.

I realize that I can MacGyver a few systems together to make a solution, such as using a WIFI security camera with a WIFI LTE HotSpot device, but I am hoping to find an all-in-one solution that will reduce complexity and the chance of a disconnection/support.

Is anyone aware of issues (and work-around) with setting up a Cisco 5520 wireless controller SNMPv3 credentials?  I can get my controller to work via SNMPv2 but not version 3.  I have other wireless controllers (5760's) which have no issue in communicating with my Cisco Prime via SNMPv3.  The only one with issues is my new Cisco 5520.
Are there known issues with SNMPv3 and the Cisco wireless controller??

Appreciate any help

Thanks

Is there a how-to guide to deploying wireless access points in a small business?  Something that will help in deciding the number and placement of APs based on configurations of the space , the building materials, (gypsum wallboard on metal studs),  the number of PCs to be served. and the optimal wireless standard e,g, N, AC etc.

I am not seeing a smoking gun on the WLC in the logs nor in radius (Cisco ACS). They're on the other side of the globe and communication is tough. What logging or troubleshooting can you recommend on the WLC/AP side. I've reviewed RADIUS logging and that looks largely normal - EAP MS-CHAP2/AD. There are a number of log messages concerning rogues. 200 or so rogues. But I don't think they'd be a problem. Cisco Clean Air b/g/b shows a worst case 91. a/n/c has avg 99 min 99 - and i think they're largely attaching via a/n/c.

On Demand Webinar: Networking for the Cloud Era

Did you know SD-WANs can improve network connectivity? Check out this webinar to learn how an SD-WAN simplified, one-click tool can help you migrate and manage data in the cloud.

For years we have been using directional Black Box LWE120 equipment for outdoor wireless connectivity in the range of 500' - 1500'.  Each radio only costs $100, plus they are easy to configure, and they work great for years (none has died yet).  Better yet, the support services from Black Box have met every need, talking to real live American techs the moment I call them.

The bad news is that the company is phasing out this excellent product line with no replacement in sight.  So now I need to start all over again with a similar product, preferably like my description above.  And, I will need a product line that includes an omnidirectional model like their LWE121, and be able to set one up as a repeater where I don't have direct line of sight between the two offices--like I'm about to have to install for a new customer.

Finally, I go back to great support...someone recently said to check out Ubiquiti products, but I read numerous complaints from IT guys saying they never could talk to a real person, and had trouble getting ANY support, etc...headaches I definitely don't need.  

Any suggestions for a product line that meets these criteria will be greatly appreciated.  TIA

Hello I have a UniFi AP Ubiquiti access point I had to do a hard reset but my question is should I name the SSID and web key the same as the main router in the office or would that create trouble?

I am unable to connect to my VPN URL  via anyconnect from my laptop using the house WiFi internet. The URL opens via the browser but using the application I face issues.

Error: No valid signatures.

The same works from the laptop when I connect it using my mobile 3g data via hotspot.
The issue seems to be with the WiFi.

The router is a TP link router.


Kindly suggest

I pay $222/month and I get:

- Land line
- FIOS Internet
- Cable TV

But I watch only a few channels and feel ripped off.

What options do I have?

I like having a land line for a phone conversation that is near perfect, which I sometimes need for job interviews.

My cell reception from home is not terrible, but it fluctuates. Hence, the cell network would be a high cost way to get Internet access.

I really do not want to go up on my roof, three stories up to put a put on a satellite dish. Plus, I may not be living here much longer.

Do I have any options?

Thanks.

I generated a self signed cert for my vWLC using this guide: Guide. We recently purchased a wildcard cert from Digicert for other authentication uses in our domain. Is there a way I can use that wildcard cert to authenticate on the vWLC as well or are these two different types of certs?

This post: Wildcard Cert guide leans me towards "no" but I'm uncertain. Any help is appreciated.
