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.

Hi,

I have this Asus Rog G56JK laptop.

The WLAN card has been unstable for a long period now, so i decided to change it.

Can i add this network WLAN device into this ASUS laptop.

or
https://ark.intel.com/products/75442/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-3160

(Or would you suggest another ?)

Today i have this WLAN card installed

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Wireless-wifi-card-Mediatek-MT7630E-802-11b-g-n-Wi-Fi-and-Mediatek-Bluetooth-4/32417080568.html
Mediatek MT7630E 802.11b/g/n 150Mbps Wireless WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 WLAN Half Mini PCIe card

As i see the "old" card only supports b/g/n and the "new" card also supports AC.

But will my two "connection" cables support AC ?

I have a Intel Compute stick STK2MV64CC running Windows 10 that just recently lost connectivity to the office WiFi. It can connect to my phones hotspot and access the internet, and other computers can connect to the office WiFi with access to the internet. The Intel Compute stick STK2MV64CC actually connects to the office WiFi, obtains an IP, but has no access to the internet.
Steps taken:
1. Updated wireless drivers
2. released/ renewed IP - Says that the media is disconnected and fails.
3. Uninstalled and reinstalled wireless adapter
4. Ran command prompt as administrator:
- netsh int ip reset reset.txt
- netsh winsock reset
- netsh advfirewall reset
5. Rebooted PC - still not internet access
6. Checked for a Windows update while connected to hotspot - no updates available.

Any ideas on next steps?

We have two wifi networks at our house and the one we use as back up has somehow become the default, and randomly takes over throughout the day. Besides physically unplugging it, what is the best way to prevent this from continuing?

Hi,

I wish to deploy a dozen wifi points plus 6 hard wired points.
Hardwired points will access to a 192.168.20. subnet
Wifi will have 2 SSIDS - guest and office.
Guest will be 192.168.1 subnet and office will be 192.168.20 subnet as hard wired
Guest ought not to be able to speak to Office subnet

Each of the subnets will then be routed to one of 2 broadband lines where differnet restrictions will apply.
Budget is constrained so I plan on using  Ubiquiti AC Lite APs and a used draytek 2860 router .

Looking for advice on the sensibility of this approach. Or alternatives.

Many thanks in advance

hello experts
i have some autonomous Cisco wireless AP, i need update them to lightweight, i did it from remote and successful, but i can't access it after update, neither telnet or ssh, i could only ping it, for the reason of controller located in another subnet, so i have to climb to the roof via ladder connect console to each device configure it connect to controller, that is not convince, for have so many devices.
my question is how i can access it after update.

thank you

The user is unable to see 5G Wifi networks on their Dell Laptop.
It's a Dell Latitude 6430U - Windows 7 Pro
I checked, and the latest WiFi driver for this model is installed.

Device Manager General Tab says:   Dell Wireless  1504  802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz)
Drive Tab adds  Driver Date of 12/13/2013,  Driver Version  6.30.223.215

The computer is 5 years old - is it possible that there was no support for 5G at that time?

Thanks.

Have a building that needs internet access and the the people that were inside said that using their smartphones would be fine.  Here is the problem:  The building is steel and they cannot get cell service AT ALL.  So of course no internet with phones.  Is there a solution to this by placing an antenna or something outside of the building and running a cable to a wireless router inside that the phones can hook up to WIFI?  Or is there a better solution for this scenario?  I was hoping not to have to pull in an internet line that is not there at the moment.

I have a refurbished AIR-AP1852I-B-K9 that I am trying to join to a 2500 WLC. This is number 2 of the 2   we ordered. The first one joined on its own no problem without any intervention from me, this one is being stubborn.

I keep seeing this message:

[*12/18/2017 12:50:19.8397] Discovery Request sent to X.X.X.X, discovery type STATIC_CONFIG(1)
[*12/18/2017 12:50:19.8497] Discovery Request sent to 255.255.255.255, discovery type UNKNOWN(0)

I set the first IP (capwap ap primary-base <wlc name> <wlc ip>) but do not know where the other one came from. I see the clock is off and am not sure if that is contributing to the issue or not.

I have tried just about everything I can think of including multiple factory resets, statically assigning an IP and updating code. (which failed) I am now am out of ideas unfortunately.

I can see the AP as a CDP neighbor on my switch so we make it that far. It also pulls a DHCP address. We do not use option 43 so pointing the AP to the WLC should work.The CLI is limited on these compared to what I am used to working with also.

Any ideas?

I am trying to understand why I don't see the actual configuration when I access the AP via the GUI. in CLI, I can see Radius, TACACS, and other good stuffs. But on the GUI, all I see is the IP address of bvi1. Thanks

I’ve purchased a total of 3 roku streaming sticks. The first one was defective and returned it to Amazon. The second  one was defective and I also returned it. The third one I went to Best Buy and made sure that they were able to pair the remote with one of their TVs. It was able to pair at the store. However, when I get home the remote control won’t pair.

So this is the same problem with all three streaming sticks. I cannot get the remote control to pair with the stick. I have done all the troubleshooting over the phone with Roku. We have done all the resets imaginable. It’s odd that it worked just fine at the store. I bought the very same Roku that they were able to pair and brought it to my house. When I get it here it’s asking me to pair it and the pair is unsuccessful.

Very frustrating. I don’t need any of the normal advice for how to pair and troubleshoot this device. Everything has been done that could possibly be done with regards to Roku support on the phone. And the fact that it works perfectly fine at the store.

Could there be something in my house such as conflict with some other remote controls that is impeding this? Any ideas that I haven’t thought of?

There years ago I bought one of these for $30


https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B003KPBRRW/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1521532424&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=wnce2001&dpPl=1&dpID=41uFL6sLwiL&ref=plSrch

I would like to buy another put the price is outrageous. Like $300. There’s something wrong with that price. I don’t care if it is exactly the same or not. I just need something to accomplish this: I need to take the WiFi that is in the radio waves Around me and convert that into a stable Ethernet port. Short and simple.

What product would you recommend please ?

Thanks.

We have a network with two VLANs associated with their own subnets.  VLAN 1 is tied to SUBNET 1, and VLAN 2 is tied to SUBNET 2.  We use subnet 2 in a second section of our building.  The backbone is Cisco catalyst 3850, and the problem right now seems to be almost entirely happening with only WIFI users in the "subnet 2" area of the building, which are Cisco Meraki APs.  While users have been getting IP addresses dynamically without issues for some months now, they suddenly are no longer able to get an address thru DHCP.  If I statically assign the IP, it works.  There are hard-wired desktops on the 2nd subnet that are working fine - those are DHCP, with 4-hour leases, incidentally.  In the "SUBNET 1" area of the building, users are working fine on WIFI or LAN, without issues.  Nothing that I know of has been changed on the netowkr - no work or anything like that has been done over the last week, when this started happening.  Could this simply be a glitch with the Meraki APs or the AD server??

Thanks for your help
