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 everyone,
A client of mine is having an issue with their wireless.  They have been reporting that the passwords were getting rejected so I updated the passwords and then the same thing.  I have tried rebooting it, which normally used to fix these issues but now does not.  They have two ssids, one for employees and one for guest and they are configured in a virtual access point.  There are no more firmware upgrades for this model, my next step would normally be to upgrade the firmware.  We have recommended upgrading this Sonicwall as it is no longer supported as well as having a separate access point in the past.  I honestly think that this would be the only solution at this point, but out of good customer service I am reaching out to you guys to see if there is anything else that I can try.

Hi, I'd like some advice on what to purchase to allow my guests to have wireless in their room. We have a house, and at the front is our office, where our router sits. We don't want to move it. It's a DSL Infinitum Modem/router.

The guest room is outside at the back of the house behind the garage, and is on a separate electrical panel.

The house, garage and guest room are all made of concrete blocks. Here's a diagram of the layout:

I have a client that has a "business incubator", consisting of a 1 office complex with 8 separate businesses within that office complex.  We would like to segregate each individual office onto their own subnet, but still be able to share one business class multi function printer.  This client will be sharing one internet connection across all networks, and would like to separate network traffic between different businesses, so that business "a" cannot talk to business "b".  This customer will also require wifi access for these individual businesses, so we are thinking of utilizing a layer 3 switch and just creating multiple vlans to accomplish this, but was looking for a second opinion on other solutions.

One of a AP connecting to a Cisco PoE switch always loss heartbeat and resume later automatically.

I have checked the interface of the switch connecting to this AP, and it shows a high values in the interfaces. Is it indicated an issue in the switch physical interface or the AP itself problem ? How can I further identify the problem ?

Thx

I have a gas fire place controlled by a light switch. If I replaced the switch with a smart light switch would Alexa be able to control the fireplace?

Has anyone tried this and what kind of smart switch would you recommend?

My Cisco Router is 3 years outside its last firmware update. I am having problems with it so I purchased the Asus AC3100 above. It has 8 LAN ports and a powerful wireless connection with 5 Ghtz. It has 5 Ghtz and 2.4 Ghtz as well as 8 LAN ports. Not worried about the LAN ports just need to figure out how to configure the router so everything below has its on dedicated IP address. ( I assume that is what I need to do?) I assume this but not sure how to do. If I am leaving something out you need or I need to do please advise?

The Problem is when I start to run specific machines or watch TV intermittently, I get conflicts and dropped signal all over. The only way to resolve with the old router is to shut down and reboot to figure out what I can keep on or leave off. I hope this Newer 2017 ASUS Router will be more helpful and last at least a few years. Listed below is what I have in my home/office. Can anyone suggest any configurations or practices that I can use to get this working? I have listed below information as well as device connection types. 1W = One wireless device. 1LAN = One LAN (hardwired) connection or both. Any advice on what I need to make sure I do to allow everything to be seamless is appreciated. Thank you.

I have wireless devices all over the house.
PC's Laptops & Tablets
1- Window10 Dell Vostro 3750 Laptop. (1W)
1- Windows10 Tower with both LAN and Wireless Card. (1W & 1LAN)
1- Wireless Printer HP MFP 1210 NFW All-in-One Printer. (1W)
1- PowerEdge…

I have just taken over 15 Meru AP200 access point and a Extreme Summit x150-24p switch. The switch have just died. I installed a new Dell managed switch but can not get into the AP 200 to setup static IP Address for all 15 AP. Anyone help with this problem, I have never worked with these products before as you problem can tell. Thank you.

Hi,

I have a wifi network where the antenna is on one side of the building, and the whole other wing is too far and cannot reach it.

I have put in place 3 X TP Link RE350 devices which I am hoping to plug in at 33%, 66% and 99% points along the route to the other side of the building.

I am therefore hoping that I can join extender 1 to the main wifi network at 33% of the route, and then join extender 2 to extender one's network, and extender 3 to extender two's network.

However, it doesn't seem to be working.

Extender 1 is blue light indicating strong connection to the main antenna.

Extenders two and three show red lights which indicates " too far from the router".

I thought I could extend it each time I put in place an extender along the route?

PLease help!

Hi,

Will this wireless controller work in Ubuntu 17.10 desktop? I am thinking of using a pair of them on my machine? Please note it is the wireless one so I am not sure if that means any extra complications.

Thanks,

We have two buildings across the street from one another, one has our network and the other has our customers network.  However we have to put one of our time clocks in the customer building.  I am looking for a cheap solution to connect the two buildings via wireless so I can put our time clock on our network.  They are approximately 70 yards apart.  We use Cisco gear but I do not necessarily need Cisco.  In the past we've done this with Netgear WG302 access points but I'm looking for something more modern and easy to setup.  Thank you.

hello Experts
I will purchase a WLC recently because there are so many autonomous APs which is not easy to manage, i am prefer to have a virtual one, i think i already know the advantage and drawback of the virtual WLC, but i still have something not clear need to be confirmed, appreciate your help
1. does virtual totally same physical WLC while using and configuring it?
2. does virtual WLC support all branch of Cisco APs?
3. while i reading some documents, says APs software need upgrade to at least version 7.3 so that could register to WLC, but i am confused, this version looks like the WLC software version not AP, as i know for APs just need install lightweight image should be fine, could you clarify this point?
4. i already download and deployed virtual WLC version 8.0 with 60 days evaluate license, but i can't get the virtual serial port works follow the installation guide(https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/technology/mesh/8-2/b_Virtual_Wireless_LAN_Controller_Deployment_Guide_8-2.html), when i try to telnet it seem connected but no any response, please let me know how to fix it.
for i have no experience using a WLC, so there are so many questions and thanks for your understanding.

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.

I have a windows 10 device that a user somehow disable the network.  There is a Red X on the icon in system tray.  Wired Connection  shows the connection is available.   Checked wire and switch all ok.  Things I have done.  Remove the adapter and reinstalled it.  Updated to latest drivers for the card.  reset Network.  Disabled enabled.  Reset Tcp/ip stack with netsh commands.  Network properties show operational but Connetivity (IPv4/ipv6)  Disconnected.  I have turned off the Firewall, and Windows defender.    

Diagnostic detail shows "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol to the Network Adapter"  

I have checked settings in BIOS everything is enabled.  I have removed AVG

At a loss,

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?

Hi,

In our training room, which sometimes gets reconfigured with no tables for an open space, we are looking to get wall mounts that will allow items such as a keyboard to sit very tightly against the wall when it is not in use and which can be pulled out from wall when needed.

The wall mount adjustable keyboard tray with an extendable arm should meet the requirements below:
 
1.       Extendable arm with full range of swivel motion which can rotate left and right with ease.
 
2.       Height adjustable arm which can be adjusted upwards and downwards. It will need to appear as if it is sitting on a table where a person is using it. Also, when moving the arm to the position we need it to be in, the arm should lock in place.

3.      Wall mount track to allow for extendable arm to be moved vertically so extendable arm can be moved lower when in use and higher when not in use.

4.      The tray should be foldable upwards, downwards and be lockable so that the tray can be placed tightly against the wall.

5.      The wall mount tray should support the weight of objects such as a keyboard for weights up to 15 kg.

Thanks,
Robbie

I manage a small legal office and have a SonicWall TZ 400 wireless that covers the current building ( 15 people on the LANand only one using wifi)
The owner of the company will be expanding into a separate building across a 30 foot Breezeway next door.
I have tested the current TZ 400 Signal and it "peters out" just outside the current office facing the new office space.
 the new office space will only have two people in it)

I cannot move the existing TZ 400 closer to the new building. ( I cannot use the AC wiring to extend the wifi)

QUESTION:  SonicWall just came out with a new "mesh" Sonic "WAVE" that are around $850 each . And it requires yearly fees but support is probably great and an integrated package may make sense.  But I don't even really know if the "Wave" is the right product.  Will a SonicWall Point that not on a ethernet lan act like a mesh ?

But it  seems like a pricey solution  and I might really need two of them ( $1700)
One to boost the TZ 400w inside the edge of the existing office and one to pick up the signal in the new building.
I would like to have a ethernet port from the  device in the new building and would also like to lower the cost (above)
Does anyone suggest the SonicPoint or Ubiquity or Meraki or even Google  Wifi mesh to accomplish this ?

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could offer suggestions on how to improve wireless performance on a Cisco 5508 controller.

I am told right below the AP there is little to no signal.

I understand there could be multiple reasons for this, any suggestions for improvements ?

There are 3702 and 1131 AP's
