Dear Experts,

I am not able to get tech support to help me with this via chat and I can't get them on the phone.

I can connect to the devices via SSH. Not sure what commands are needed to run to get the devices adopted.

What sender do you recommend?
I have seen so many on Amazon and Ebay.

The distance is under 10m. The signal comes from a projector, output RCA, left and right.
I want to send that audio wireless to an audio amplifier which has Bluetooth receiver.
Most of the senders have a small battery incorporated, but I do not care, it can be also with power adapter. In fact those with battery have a kind of standby mode to avoid battery discharge. That is something that I do not really need.
One important request is this: when the analog signal comes (projector starts playing) I need that Bluetooth audio transmitter to send the signal right away. I do not want to go and press a button somewhere on transmitter. It should be like a self-activating, self-wake up mode, in case enters in standby. This is very important because that Bluetooth transmitter will be placed near the projector somewhere high and I cannot go every time there to activate manual the Bluetooth transmitter. I want to see this feature somewhere mentioned/explained before I buy it.

Hi, I recently switched to W-10 and used ethernet connection to modem/router. I was surprised not having to provide a ssid and passcode to connect, and wary as I am seeing my status as  logged on to a 'local network', (my modem/router).  My question is, am I better protected using the wired connection, or should I unplug and connect thru wifi?

I stay at a campground during the summer. They have free WiFi but every time you connect, an internet page pops up and redirects you to a page that says click to continue for free WiFi. You do not have to enter a username or password, Just click continue.
Ideally i would like to have a wifi access point setup that i can connect my laptop and phone to.
I started looking into setting up a router with DD-WRT but have no experience if that would work in this situation.

Hey Guys,

I am upgrading my client's office wireless and confused on what UniFi WAP to purchase.  There is UAC AC Pro and UAP AC Lite.  What is the difference?  Are both for office use?  Also, is 5Ghz band used at business?  Thanks.

Amazon recently filed a patent for a system wherein while someone is shopping inside of a store, and using that store's wifi connection, the store owner is able to inspect the wifi packets to see if a competitive product is being viewed and then issue a "control" action in response.

Basically if you want to price shop while inside of a retailer, they'll be able to block the action from happening.

If so (far too much to read at this time of night) with more and more sites moving over completely to SSL this would make it completely redundant - look at letsencyrpt, if you are using Linux and most CP's have it as part of their software

How is Amazon going to implement this on the router to inspect and analyze thousands of websites to determine the price from the HTML?

Another one of Amazon's crazy patent ideas and kinda in the realms of fake news

I have a set of headphones I bought at Harbor Freight Tools (yeah, I know, big time cheap) and went to hook them up, but the TV I'm using, while flat screen (and about 5 years old, and is not a "smart" TV) has NO audio output plug. I am also using Google Fiber, if that makes a difference. I'm not a tech type and need a relatively simple solution.

The TV in question is LG Model LS3400. User manual easily available online with good graphics of the back panel.

Is there a simple solution for this or do I wait until it's time to replace the TV?

HI all,

I have a Spectrum cable modem with IP address 192.168.0.1.

I used a TP-Link powerline adapter to get a signal to a room that's rather far away from the cable modem.

I then hooked up an ASUS RT-ACRH13 to the powerline adapter and set it to "Access Point" mode. After I did this, the IP Address that the Asus grabbed was 192.168.50.1. I wanted to be able to admin the Asus, so I manually changed the IP address to 192.168.0.2.

If i connect a desktop to the Asus Access Point via LAN cable, I can access the net no problem. A couple of WiFi SSID's are broadcasted from the ASUS. When I connect to the WiFi signal, the devices can connect, but get no internet.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

A warehouse / manufacturing environment with low ceilings ~ 15-20 ft are using Cisco 3702i APs . The APs are running in Flex Connect mode through Cisco 5520 WLC running 8.2.141.0 code.   The site is facing frequent disconnects with their handheld units. These scanning guns have the following models (quantities) : Zebra XT15 (9)  , Zebra RS419 (9), and Zebra WT410N0 (3).   They face random disconnects. Whats weird is sometimes a scanner will be conneced to wireless , it disconnects and is unable to connect back to the SSID at all and will error out saying out of range.  It seems like the issues get worse when all of the scanners, handheld units are in use which leads me to believe that this might be client device issue. What can I do on the WLC side or recommend to the site for RF unit device configuration or otherwise to address this?

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.

I have a hacker who has compromised my network, devices and my life for over a year. I have found various devices connected to my lab top via blue tooth, unknown devices on my wifi network and have collected a bunch of networking logs and see things on there that shouldn't be there, I believe. It's a lot of information that I really don't know how to read and I don't know what information is important. So I'm looking to hire somebody to review the logs and information that I found and tell me what information should be looked at more closely, what information needs to be investigated further, etc.

Definitely willing to pay.. Contact me privately if you have history in this area.

I have Win 10 desktop (hp).

This AM, internet stopped working. I have wireless connection through local cable co. (Cox).

I have dealt by phone with the cable company several times, they are sending a rep, probably tomorrow.

My question is, I am doing this question via my iPad, for which the wireless works. On the PC it says "(name of wifi), No Internet". Per the Cable company,  I did a disconnect, then connect. The yellow triangle with ! In it disappears, I try to connect to google.com, says server not found and the yellow triangle is back.

Any ideas what I can try?

Thanks

I have cisco 5508 lan controller and 2702i WAPs with static IP address. I want to remove static ip address and assign through cisco ios dhcp server. I'll do the following:

On cisco switch:
ip dhcp pool <pool name>
network <ip network> <netmask>
default-router <default-router IP address>
dns-server <dns server IP address>
option 43 hex <hexadecimal string>

Then go to WLC GUI and go to each AP and click "Clear all config"

On switch the ports are configured as:
switchport access vlan 111
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan 111
switchport trunk allowed vlan 9-11, 111
spanning-tree portfast

All WAPs are in flexconnect mode.

Are these steps correct? If not, please list detailed steps. Thanks.

Dear fellow Experts Exchange members:

I have an unusual question that requires the input of fellow members who have had hands-on experience with *ANY ONE* of a set of USB wireless AC network adapters.

Here is my situation: I have an office with two wireless access points (one on the left side and one on the right side of the building).  I have dropped the transmit power of each AP to try to get the wireless adapters in their three-or-four laptops to roam to the nearest AP when the users walk from one side to the other.

However, I am unable to find any "Roaming Aggressiveness" setting in the hardware properties of the wireless NIC for any of the current wireless NICs (internal and USB) in the laptops.

As it stands, the users all experience drops when moving from one side of the building to the other due to the wireless adapters in their laptops stubbornly trying to use the AP on the other side of the building despite there being an identically-configured AP literally right overhead.

I have a list of wireless AC adapters recommended by various sites, and I would like to know from any Experts Exchange members who have first-hand experience with *ANY ONE* of them if their device drivers provide a "Roaming Aggressiveness" setting.

Here is the list of wireless AC adapters:
  • Alfa Long-Range Dual-Band AC1200 Wireless USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter
  • Asus USB AC56 Dual-band Wireless-AC1200 Adapter
  • Asus USB-AC68
  • Buffalo Technology AirStation WI-U2-866D

I have been trying to figure this out for a while. We are using Mikrotic for public wireless. We currently have separate hardware. One for users who have accounts in our radius server to login with and a second where others can connect to and pay for Wifi.

We are trying to combine this down into one.  So when they connect, they are on the login page for with the pay wall.  Trying to make a button that says subscribers click here to login. That link should go to the radius login page.

Currently the paid one is in hotspot and the radius is in hotspot2, but I can't figure out how to get the link to point to the hotspot2/login.html

The documenting hints on how this can be done, but it is very incomplete.

Any help on how this could be accomplished?

I have a situation where we have about 30 people sharing a big warehouse. We have 4 access points in the building and they are mounted to the ceiling. There is absolutely nothing in between the APs and the workstations. It is one large open space.

We have recently stated having what I think are saturation issues. I am guessing that each person is connecting 2 or 3 devices to the access points.

Here is my question(s) its like a 3 in 1..sorry...

* What is the rule of thumb for amount of connected devices per access point (I heard 15 - 30)
** Is there a solution that each AP will stop accepting new connections at the number I set (so if we find that 20 is the magic number I can set the AP to stop accepting connections at 20)
** If we add more APs say, at least 2 more than we need, I would assume the new connections would route to a further AP, but would probably be better as it would be less saturation.

Thanks in advance experts!

Hello, I'm currently having issues with trying to update my computer to a newer Windows instalment. I was recently given an old-ish Windows XP computer by a family member and they completely wiped the computer and refreshed it back to its factory settings. Ever since I've received it, I've been trying to gain access to the internet so I can update its anti-virus as well as update it to more modern instalments of Microsoft Windows.

However every time I've tried connecting it, it says that the wireless wifi networks (that ARE in range) are apparently not or it has lost connection to them? Please help me, as I feel like I'm running in circles trying to find out how to fix it :(

We need to install a Wireless connection between 2 building (about 30m apart), the devices will be put on the inside the windows so not on the outside of the buildings.

The devices will need to support bridged mode as they are just used to connect the networks that are on the each side, no client devices will connect to these devices.

Has anyone got a suggestion for a set of devices or know if the Cisco Aironet 2800 or 3800 can do function as required above?

I want better wifi coverage and I thought an Ap working with my poe switch will do fine.

I am impressed by the reviews on draytek products. but also seems UAP-AC-PRO  is the king of the market.

https://www.draytek.co.uk/products/business/ap-910c. I like the multi ssid feature on this.

What are your thoughts between both.
