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.

Is your NGFW recommended by NSS Labs?

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

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.

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?

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Is there a printer that is portable and I can do two sided printing legal or letter paper wirelessly from my iPhone?

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.

In a question placed previously regarding slow internet, an EE recommended the use of Acrylic Wi-Fi.  When we placed an image of the display of the apps (see pix below), the EE could recommended to change Channel to CH11, the Band Width to Only 20 MHz and disable WPS.

Questions,

  • When running this apps from time to time, what should we look for to improve the connections? (Or be aware of possible "red flags" in our Wi-Fi)
  • We noticed that the "Max Speed" is 300 Mbps and now it went to 144.4 Mbps,
- what can it ba causing this decrease in Mbps?
(we also ran tha apps in another notebook and also 144.4 Mbps)

note, we run under Windows 10

When I put my mouse and sat on the icon to display which wireless internet I was connected to ,   it read  "  WeCanhearyouhaving sex"   as the network.  This alarmed me, I never say this before. and I started thinking HACKERS. When I searched for that network by double clicking the Icon to open and see the available networks, that one was not visible.

The icon I am referring to is next to the clock In the right side of my status bar.
it is a Del Laptop

the event troubled me as I am used to using that icon to see what ireless network I am connected to.  how could that have been displayed.

also, can someone explain the difference of a network name and the ssid ( if that is the proper name )

The CV211 Laptop USB Console Adapter provides a direct Laptop-to-Computer connection for fast and easy remote desktop access with no software to install.

We have a Linksys EA6300 wifi router in an office. It has worked fine for a while. Now when it's plugged in, computers connected to some of the network ports (Enterasys POE switch) will lose network connection. After unplugging the wifi router, the computers work fine.

Does anyone know why to correct the problem?

Hey Guys,

I want to add some Ubiquiti AP's...however we have no ethernet wiring...

Is there a way to plug them into an electrical outlet?

I have a Cisco vWLC on my domain I've configured and got my first three APs connected fine. After a certain amount of time I plugged in a few more APs but for some reason they can't connect to the controller. I've tried four more APs to rule out a hardware issue, none of them can find the controller.

After some research I set option 43 on my DHCP using the hex code for my controller's IP address, that didn't fix it either. Below is a log capture of the entire start up of an AP.

Any help is appreciated.

*Mar  1 00:07:43.051: %SYS-5-RELOAD: Reload requested by CAPWAP CLIENT. Reload Reason: Could not discover WLC using DHCP IP address, Reload to use static IP.
*Mar  1 00:07:43.051: %LWAPP-5-CHANGED: CAPWAP changed state to DOWN

We have a SonicWall NSA 220 configured and working with 2 x SonicPoint NE'2 configured and working. We are trying to add a SonicPoint N2 and have tried a directly configured port in the WLAN zone and also with the port configured as PortShield to the already configured working port. In both cases, the SonicWall does not appear to be picking up and provisioning the new SonicPoint device.

Is there a manual scan option for it to search for unprovisioned devices? Is there something else we should be doing?

Are there general guidelines for Access Point placement in warehouse environments? I was analyzing a site with the local IT person and we found for example that sometimes you could be directly underneath an AP and yet the device would attach to an AP a row away and next to a wall. And that signal was not great at -68 RSSI. Any thoughts on best placement or how to get the wifi clients to attach to the nearest more consistently? This is a Cisco AP environment with WLC and Prime for management.
