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.

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,

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

Some of the locations we are thinking about putting security cameras are close to existing power, but NOT close to existing Internet, threfore we were thinking about doing POE on the ones close to existing Internet and WIFI for the ones close to existing power, but NOT close to existing Internet

 1. Do you think wireless cameras are good for BUSINESS use or should I stay with WIRED cameras ?

 2. If wireless cameras are good, what brand do you recommend for a 3 story building ?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             An AT&T technician recently replaced our AT&T modem with a new one (Model: 5268ACFXN).  While all of our services are working great again, I can not get my HP Deskjet 2543 printer to establish a wireless connection.  The button on the printer   identified as wireless blinks off and on with a blue color suggesting it is trying to establish a connection.  Just in case this helps in the troubleshooting, I have a small black box next to the AT&T U-verse modem identified as Wireless Access Point (WAP) with the following buttons:  WPS  Paired  Link.  The Paired button blinks off and on with a green color and the Link button has a rapid green blinking light which seems to suggest being busy with signal request made perhaps by other wireless devices in the house, like this laptop as an example.

              In closing, I hope I have described my concern in a clear and understandable way because I am not very tech savvy when it comes to describing my personal observations and conclusions.  If more clarification is needed, I will gladly furnish it upon request.  In the meantime, I look forward to reviewing everyone's shared thoughts and suggestions to this question.

             Thank you

             George

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

          George

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,

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?

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?

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?

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.
