Hi, I am trying to determine the best way to configure a WAP4410N, with our ASA5505, so that the WAP will have 3 SSIDs. 1, "Wireless-Inside" will allow internal users to connect to the internal network, 2 "Guest-DMZ" will allow guests access to the internet and not the internal network, and 3 "TimeClock-DMZ", which will only allow our timeclock to connect over the internet to its web instance.

I have a Dell Latitude 5414 Rugged laptop with internal cellular with the following problem:

The cellular card stops responding to pings when an ethernet or wifi connection is established.  This is not a routing issue but rather a windows 10 issue where it disables the cellular card when it detects another connection.

I have tried all the standard troubleshooting, updated drivers, changing network metrics, powershell hacks and many others but nothing works other than downgrading windows 10.

This is causing a problem for me because the machine needs to have a camera system connected to the ethernet port while connected to cellular.

This problem began with windows 10 version 1709 and is not a problem with version 1703 or earlier.

I can also confirm that the Windows 10 mobile hotspot feature does not work ether because of the same problem.

Can anyone else confirm the problem with their laptop with built in cellular?

The cellular card is the dell wireless 5806e gobi 4g lte.

Thanks!

Does any know if Aruba will advertise both 2.5 and 5Ghz band with the same SSID? There are three APs total for example and they are are part one one IAP group with one acting as primary.  The user can act has 2.5 or 5Ghz?

Also, is there a good tool for running a heatmap for these set up? There is no controller.

TIA, LN

Just wondering what it is better to mount the Access Points above the ceiling tiles or below it (upside down and outside the ceiling tiles) and what the difference is.

Thanks,

Hello, I have a Verizon Fios G1100 router, the reset button was hit yesterday so I had to reconfigure the wifi so I create the main SSID and a Guest SSID. On the main wifi, SSID the 2.4Ghz and 5Hz SSID are the same names using WPA2/WPA mixed mode and the guest account. The problem I am having is when users with their laptops trying to connect it takes forever for the connection to complete most users will just give up. My desktop users with older systems are connecting without any problems so this morning I renamed the guest account and removed the password and the laptop users could connect but it still took a fair amount of time for the connection to complete sometimes we would have to reboot and turn the wifi on and off.  Any direction on what I am doing wrong or settings that are not set right?

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 there,

I have a 2504 WLC at a remote site overseas currently on code 8.3.121.4.  I need to update the code on it due to the KRACK vulnerability, but wasn't sure what the best route was to go on this. Cisco's suggested release is 8.2.166.0 (ED), but I'm hesitant to downgrade the code as I've heard some horror stories (losing configs, etc.) and I don't have an onsite resource there in case things to to hell.  Cisco TACs recommended 8.3 release is 8.3.133.0... would I be better off just upgrading to that version instead?  Would that be safer for a remote update?

Any input is appreciated, thanks!

We have been tasked with connecting a room to our corporate network via wireless router.  I am not that adept at wireless security.  Can anyone give me any general guidelines to make this as secure as possible?  Is this even recommended.  Our domain is a Windows  2016 domain.  

Thanks

I'm looking at some of the above: anyone know if the one with 3km distance has good penetration against 2 layers of walls
(each layer of about 15cm thick)?

I'm placing a wifi router with a camera in my car & from my office which is about 500m away, I want to be able to connect
to the camera to monitor the car (from vandals) from my office PC.  There could be 1 to 2 layers of walls in between.

Feel free to recommend any other products.  Don't need encryption, only good distance/penetration

The price charged for Aerohive POE injectors suggest they are made of some rare and precious metals (gold or platinum perhaps) and come with a free date with GOT's Emilia Clarke.

GIven I dont have the money and have a wife that would rule out the date with Emilia Clarke does anyone know of a compatble POE injector with Gigabit.  They run 802.3at :)

Hello!

I'm working with a small business (5 employees) that work out one building that is separated into two offices by a fairly heavy-duty wall.  We have wifi in one building (using a consumer-grade wireless router), and would like to add wireless access to the other office, but only a very weak signal bleeds through.

I know that I could add a wireless router to the other side, set up with the same SSID and encryption/passphrase, and have it work reasonably well... however, in the past I've run into issues where a device on wireless 'A' doesn't let go of the signal and grab wireless 'B', even though B is stronger.

I contacted our CDW rep to find out what a base SMB solution for this type of scenario would be (two access points that support roaming, without a controller), and his best solution was a couple of Meraki MR 33 access points, at roughly $450 each.

$900 was more than the boss wanted to spend... does anyone know of a more cost-effective solution for an SMB?

My parents just bought a Smart TV. They've been having trouble navigating it. They live several states away and do not have a smart phone or tablet to Skype/FaceTime me and show what they see and what they're having trouble with.

Is it possible for me to remote access into their smart TV through WiFi to walk them through navigation?

I have 2 routers in my home: in the basement i have my main Verizon Fios router and i installed another Trendnet router on the 1st floor which is wired to the main router by a patch cable. i have ipads, iphones and an nexus 6 smartphone which runs Android.
i don't get reliable internet connections on any device and a lot of times it just disconnects altogether.
i think it has to do with security settings on the routers. i don't know which ones to use. i just want a good connection.
can anyone recommend routers security levels so that all devices work?
thank you
Steve

We currently have MaaS360 and want to come away from that due to the limited functionality and lack of helpful features. We would require something that provides more control over the device. So that we can allow and restrict apps as necessary.

EDIT: We also push 3 apps currently and would require that feature as well. Something does a fairly good job at auditing the devices within the company.

We have a c3750-48PS the switch works fine on the computers, but the Access Point doesn't come up, it lights up, but it doesn't see the Wireless Controller. The Access Point is a 2802I.

Any ideas?

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.

I had to rebuild my Cisco Prime machine.  Since then it's only seeing the AP's on one controller.  I have about 250 APs currently that I can see on each controller.  The tricky part of this is one controller has Software Version 8.0.133.0 and the 2nd controller has 8.2.141.0.  I had to do this because we purchased new AP's and we haven't upgrades switches to support the newer APs so I've split them.  Is there a way for the controller (Prime) to see both controller APs

I've create a vlan for smartphones in the office which has a limited bandwidth policy.

is there a way to have the system recognize smartphone and automatically connected them to the specific vlan   .

so even is someone tries to connect to a different vlan through the phone it will automatically redirected to the right vlan?

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?

Trying to make sure I have created and assigned all new IP address and what they are assigned to on my internal Home Office.  IF I can print out the MAC Address for TV and ROKU devices and see the names of the machines on my network. I assume the IP addresses will be fairly easy to list so that I can create a simple log file of who is who and what is what so to speak. How would I do that and or what would I do?
