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.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I will be purchasing a PS4 console with controller this month.  It is my understanding the PS4 controller can be used wireless after being fully charged which brings me to this upcoming question.  Will the wireless PS4 controller cause any interference with my AT&T wireless setup at home used for internet access?

          Thank you

I haven't used my Surface Book for a week or two. Turned it on today, and the surface arc bluetooth mouse won't work.  I can't get anyone on the line at MS Support; and the canned advise doesn't work.  Any bluetooth experts out there who can give me a hand?

So, editing a few hours later.  The issue here is that ordinarily what one does is to open the services option, and go to the bluetooth page, then You click and the thing connects with your bluetooth item, in this case an arch surface mouse.  But unlike in the past two years, the two can't pair. So the mouse doesn't work.  This has worked fine for two or more years ago that I have had a Surface Book.  Something has changed.  What?

I downloaded Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 7*
Version: 19.70.0 (Latest) Date: 7/11/2017 - ran install. But still my WiFi driver
remained at 15.17. So then I tried to manually update the driver. But when I
point to the dir Windows preemptively says it has the latest. Is doesn't. What
could be going on?

I have a Sony Handycam HDR CX240 camcorder.

This camera will be used to record video outside for a few hours.

A good few people would like to watch this video footage live while it is being recorded.

Facebook Live seems to be a good streaming service for this task.

How would I stream this video footage through Facebook Live through use of my Sony Handycam HDR CX240 camcorder?

Thanks,
Robbie

We have been using wireless-computing keyboards and mice for a while, but they went out of business. We are looking for a replacement option to this.

SMK makes one, but their build quality isn't great and the mouse cover keeps failing off. The syncing method requires an adapter that could get lost and the preferred method is rechargeable batteries.

We are just looking for a simple non-rechargeable keyboard/mouse that is RF and works at 100ft reliably. Does anybody have any options out there?

I have three TP-Link EAP245 access points managed by an EAP Controller. The speed on any of those three APs is very slow in compare to the wired Ethernet speed (internet). Measured wired speed was 495 Mbps down, and 113 Mbps up, but the Wi-Fi connections are between 7Mbps and 19Mbps from laptop or phones. There are 2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz radios enabled, and one SSID.

Are there some EAP controller or EAP245 settings that I could tweak to get this going?

Please see the diagram

I have the main router which holds the VLANS configuration (MAIN and GUEST) , two access point connected to it, and it works fine.

In the next location I don't know what I need to do in order to accomplish the following :

The Access point will show the two networks (MAIN and GUEST) , and the pc which is wired will be only on the guest network.

How do I accomplish that?

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.

A client has Comporium WIFI internet service package. They have 1 static WAN IP, subnet and gateway.
From this, they get 10 usable Static LAN IP's to be populated in 9 other separate WIFI routers. The main router gets the static WAN IP as it's static info, and an address pool must be created that is the range of the usable LAN IP's, for example, 204.158.15.10 - 204.158.15.19 in this main router. This is used in place of the standard 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.199 found in most routers. The client purchased 12 TPLink C1200 Wireless Routers, but these units will not allow the change in address pool to a LAN static IP range.

So we have the main router that has to have a static WAN IP. The address pool is setup with the range of usable static LAN IP's and then each of the other routers get setup with one of the usable static IP's. They want 10 routers in all. It seems they need a business WiFi router instead of a home based unit. Would prefer all 10 to be the same brand/model? Maybe just the 1 that has the odd settings for the address pool to be business class, and leave the other remaining 9 in place? They are all currently mounted on a wall.

Any suggestions on a router that can have a static WAN and then the address pool set to static LAN IP range?

Trying to project my Wifi signal to reach 700ft with a beamforming signal to reach my property across the road from me. I was thinking of using a Wireless N600mW smart router R10000 from walmart. Would this be adequate or would this require a directional antenna to broadcast the signal?

An AV company suggested that the client purchase as wireless access points - Araknis High Power Wireless Access Points.
The client asked why they couldn't use their existing Apple Airport Extreme units.  The AV company gave the following response, and I've highlighted their major points:

"Access points
I strongly advise you NOT to use those airport extreme units. All access points are not created equal, and they do not all utilize maximum power. That said, the features that enable seamless handoff of connectivity between access points, smart dynamic channel selection, and all of the other features that create a reliable wifi network, have little to do with power. I’ve been down that road before, and as your advocate, I have to say please spare us all the pain."

I recognize that Apple hasn't made major changes to the Airports for some time (example - no Mesh)  
However, this seems to be a somewhat extreme evaluation of the Airport Extreme units.

How right are they?  How weak is the operation of the Airport Extreme?


Thanks

I had this question after viewing Connect a wireless router to a sonicwall firewall.

Presently using Sonicwall TZ-215 with 3 TP-Link EAP 330 - (coverage decent but not perfect.)  in small business environment:
1. Would using the Linksys Velop in bridged mode give me better coverage (turning off wireless on Sonicwall TZ-215; turning off DHCP on Linksys Velop) ?
2. Since the Sonicwall TZ-215 would be the main router, will the network be secure?

I finally decided to get one of these open source customizeable routers and I'm loving it. It's for advanced consumers and it is a bit pricey but it works well and is really fast.

I was going to order from Amazon but they ran out so I ordered from the same company on eBay. I tried waiting for the higher spec'd one but I couldn't wait any longer. It looks like they're back on Amazon now though.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Hey people,
I'm using a Asus TP500LA, mediatek wireless board. I'm on window 10, and I've noticed that when I connect to some routers the latency to the default gateway is really high, varies from 7 to 2000 (average 120-180). Its not an issue of the wireless devices since I also connect to them with my phone and the latency is pretty low. I've already tried changing the driver but it doesn't seem to help. Any ideas would be welcome.
Thanks

Hi,

I am partly responsible for supporting the IT of solicitors firm. They recently asked me to setup guest wifi access for their office. They have an existing wifi setup which is provided by a leftover TPLINK router which i just used as an AP. The router doesn't appear to offer guest access so i now need to consider getting a replacement AP that does offer this service. My main issue is working out whether the guest feature on an AP alone is enough to isolate the users who are logged on from the office resources or whether i need to do additional networking configuration. There is a Cisco router in place which is managed by another company we use specifically for programming it.
I would have preferred to not involve the Cisco router when configuring the guest network but i am not sure if this is at all possible.
I am not too fussy about the model of the AP we use , so long as its not over complex to configure, i have recently been using Ubiquiti and like the way they can be configured. It is a small user network of 5 users running off a Windows 2012R2 domain.

Thanks

I would like to separate hard wired connections from wifi APs.  The purpose is to separate traffic and assign separate class c subnet to each group.  

Equipment used
Watchguard firebox
Qty 2 Uniquiti 24-port Poe+ 500 watts
Qty 10 Uniquiti HD access points.

Separate subnets for each group:

Hardwire users
10.1.1.1/24 on port 1 of Firebox with dchp turned in - hardwired - connects to first Uniquiti switch.  

Wifi access points
10.1.1.2/24 on port 2 of Firebox with dhcp turned on -  WiFi access points - connects to Second switch.

Problem
The second Uniquiti switch that connects the hardware connections  - port 1 disconnects or the ubiquity access points will start missing heart best and disconnect

 Firewall policy set to  any traffic can pass between the the Firebox interface ports 1 and 2.  Ping traffic passes from and to sinners with issue.

If all the devices / hard wire and access points and the two switches - are put into 1 single subnet - no issues.  

Comments would be appreciated.

I need to be able to reset a Motorola (Brocade) AP 650 Access point back to factory defaults. I've tried the Motorola AP Discovery Tool, and it has errors and does not work. Any ideas would be helpful. Only have to support these APs for about 1 more year. I do NOT know the IP address of the AP's but I do know the zero config for layer 2.

Again any ideas would be helpful. Thank you

A client has been given a quote by an AV company that includes Araknis High Power Wireless Access Points.   These seem to retail for $420.00 each.

When Araknis claims "High Power", is their wireless signal any stronger than, let's say, an Apple Airport Extreme, or Eero WiFi?

I assume that they are offering something for the money, I'm just not sure what.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that 802.11 n and a devices are restricted in power, which enables them to be installed without any permits, etc.

Thanks.
