One of my Techs ran a sfc /scannow  and it came back with a bunch of error which I do not have and according to her they were repaired. Once the user rebooted the network adapters disappeared. I ran a few fixes that I found via google but they did not work. The user did a refresh under the network and sharing/adapter settings and it gave this error " The network connections folder is unable to retrieve the list of adapters." Any ideas.... google is failing me today. :(

I did fail to mention they are under device manager though.......

Hello Experts,

I am investigating options for setting up remote cameras at our work sites.  I have a system that we purchased from a provider a few years ago, and am trying to determine if this is something that can be done cost effectively in-house.  The one part I am looking for advice on is using a 4G wireless modem and how to get it connected to a given carrier (Verizon Wireless, for example).  I have a Sierra Wireless RV50 in hand.  I am new to this process so would need to start from the beginning.  I am guessing that I would first need to contact Verizon and create a new line \ account, and get the required SIM card for that line?  If that is the case, then once I have the activated SIM card, I presume there is additional setup required on the modem?  I've reset the modem and have access to its management interface.  Additionally, once the modem is connected, and I've set up an "internal" LAN on the modem and addressed the camera(s) for connectivity, I am guessing I could use DDNS to reach the cameras remotely?  I've been told that VZW charges $500 for a static IP.  I would want to avoid that if possible.  Any \ all info on how to get the wireless modem connected and available on the internet is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

Russ

Hi,
We have setup an internal VLAN on our WatchGuard for Guest wifi access. The vlan works as expected and anyone who joins gets the expected IP address/ can browse the internet no problems. What we cant it to do is to work correctly with outlook web access. For some reason whenever I try the owa address I get redirected to the watchgiard ssl login page. If I try on any other external connection it works fine. I have tried an nslookup on the new guest wifi and our other external connections and they all point to the correct external address. ie if I am connected to one external wifi and try to access the url xxxxxx/exchange it work fine and an ns lookup is pointed to the correct external address. If I try and accesss xxxx I get presented with the iis page. If I try the same when connecting via the guest wifi, the nslookup shows the same external ipaddress, however if I try to goto to xxxx/exchange I get a 404 page not found error and if I browse to xxxx I get the watchguard ssl login page.

What am I missing?

Cheers,
Paul

I have a bunch of Workstations on Wheels and they are wireless.  I have various SSID along with Password for the network.  Having said that I have an open Guest Network which requires no password.  It seems my windows 10 workstations on wheels are connecting to my guest network at any given time. This is causing issues because they can not connect to the proper data programs they need.  Is there a way to essentially block these machines from getting on the Guest Network? (aside from putting a password on the guest which at this time we can not do)

This is what I'm doing now but it doesn't appear to be working:
netsh wlan add filter permission=allow ssid="network name" networktype=infrastructure
netsh wlan add filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure

sc config "RmSvc" start= disabled
sc stop "RmSvc"

I have an indoor bike trainer called Computrainer.  Communication protocol is old-school serial port.  Eventually, SERIAL/USB became available and is still used today however with so many newer mobile apps, it would be ideal to have some way to communicate over Bluetooth, WiFi, or ANT+.  Prices for adapters vary a bunch.  Are these solutions all viable?

A very strange thing happened and wanted EE advice.  We have android phones and a iphone phones.   We are setting up some computers and its wifi router in an office.  In order to detect the best signal possible, we used an apps that would detect a wifis' router signal connection and see speed or fluctuation, etc. so we can discover the perfect spot for all devices.

For some reason the android phone had better reach to a wifi router and the iphone super less.  For example, the apps would display 121 mbps and the android phone and in the iphone would detect 23 or 50 mbps - placing both phones next to each other, inches away the wifi.  

Please advice on possible cause.

Thank you in advance.

We would like seek for advice for the Aruba’s firmware version convention.We will implement WiFi in our ware-house soon we found out our Aruba IAP 305 firmware version is 6.5.4.3

We want to integrated with our Air-Wave and AirWave mention that support Instant 6.5.0.0-4.3.3.3 ,Can we confirm if IAP version 6.5.4.3 is the same with 6.5.0.0-4.3.0.0? I am quite confused with Aruba’s firmware version convention.

Experts - have what should be a fairly simple setup, comprising an HP 1920S switch - a Ubiquiti Access Point - and a TZ-400 Sonicwall. Trying to get public/guest WiFi running on VLAN-100, but users not pulling an IP address. Works fine on the Private WiFi network, running on default VLAN-1.

I have this near same setup working at other locations I've done so far - with the only difference between this non-working site and the working sites, is the switch in this non-working site is an HP 1920S switch - whereas other sites have rebranded Aruba switches installed that support CLI.

I've worked with Sonicwall support earlier today and they're not seeing the guest wifi DHCP request hitting the Sonicwall X0:100 interface when a user attempts to connect to the public wifi. They've confirmed the configuration is correct on the Sonicwall.  SHould be OK as it's basically a mirror configuration from other sites that are working.

So this is what I have so far:

**DHCP**   Managed by Sonicwall

DHCP assignment for private internal/wifi office 10.10.x.x and is working,
DHCP assignment for public WiFi is 172.16.1.x and is not working.


** VLAN Info **

Private WiFi and internal office traffic all running on default VLAN-1
Public WiFi is configured to run on VLAN-100.

** Switch Info **

Port #1 is the Sonicwall
Port #2 is the Ubiquity Access Point

Sonicwall support thinks it's an issue upstream, most likely the 1920S switch.  The 1920S only allows GUI. …

Hi everyone, I have a bit of a challenge to setup a streaming task and hope I could get some ideas and suggestions from the community.

I try to make a streaming video that runs 24/7 and wonder if anyone has some tips to me for both hardware and software.
My company has donated a piano that will be on a public spot. Now I have the tasks to setup a live stream that is accessible on a website 24/7.
The area has WiFi that we can use. So I try to come up with the best equipment and method to make this happen.

It has to be a 360 Video stream that is broadcasted to a website that is made with wordpress.

Does anyone have some ideas on this, of course I cant pay for a expensive cloud service. So my originally thought was to stream it to YouTube (of alternatives) and than embed this into the website. However, I do not find any good explanation, which surprises me since there are so many people that broadcast on webcams all the time.
I have the added issue that I cant connect Ethernet, it need to be standalone wifi so that i do not need a computer in the piano.

The idea is of course that web viewers can see the person playing the upright piano and they can also see 360 degree around so see the people watching.

Any guidance in terms of setup options and best camera for the job, would be very much welcome. I cant afford to make mistakes because the budget is very tight.

Hi,

I have been searching for a matrix listing the security advantages and disadvantages of wi-fi vs Bluetooth vs cellular vs ethernet.  I searched for a specific technology I mostly find publications talking about the general connectivity differences using the technologies but nothing side by side like a matrix that includes all three measured against the same baseline. I tried using two different articles and list the information in a spreadsheet but the categories and the baselines used were not the same - problem. Do you know of any resource that may have this information in a matrix view that I can review.  

Thanks

I have 2x 8500 WLC’s in HA SSO active-standby. The primary unit is faulty and failed over to the secondary unit which is HA-SKU. I have received a RMA for faulty unit and want to put it back into the SSO.

 

 In this case the new primary unit does not need license because once it is in the SSO it will inherit the licences again from the secondary unit is this correct.

I have Aruba Wireless Controller and HP Procurve core switch that connected and working with 4 different SSID. Each SSID setup with each VLAN. I have an issue connecting these two when I added new SSID with new vlan. For example, new vlan 88 with 192.168.88.1 / 24 on hp switch, and 192.168.88.2 /24 with vlan 88 on Aruba controller. I can't ping each other.
Other VLAN can ping each other just fine and these two devices connected directly.  What could that be wrong?

Cisco Mobility Express - I have 2 - 2802E's and a load of 2702's
One I have setup as a controller works fine, now I want to setup the second 2802 as a failover controller.

Initially I flashed it with the lightweight firmware it joined then went into my ME controller and said convert to ME, now it comes up ME capable.
That one seems to sit on the setup wizard at least when I look at the console port.

The first time I gave it some time thinking it would get the config and eventually just come up as a controller but nothing.
It does show up in ME as ME capable. I went into my controller and clicked make ME Controller it just rebooted and went to the same place.
I ended up rebooting it there essentially killing the setup wizard. It seemed to work but the secondary controller kept disappearing in ME until I rebooted and then it would show up again for a while.

I reset it and flashed it as a CWAP again, worked fine.
I had ME convert it again and this time went through the wizard and gave it the same settings as my main controller, it came up and I click Make ME controller now they are fighting back any forth I'm guessing over the management IP which makes sense so I just shutdown the second one for now.

I can't find a single document regarding bringing up a secondary controller using on premise ME unit.
I found documentation using cloud based services and using full blown WLC's but nothing in regards to what I'm using.

I found a few brief mentions about …

Cisco 2802 CWAP will not join 2802 Cisco ME Controller.

Pardon me I'm not Cisco expert but we've been running 2702E's in Autonomous mode successfully for a few years so obviously ME is a step up.

I have a 2802 online and I keep ending up with "Max retransmission count exceeded, going back to DISCOVER mode." when it tries to Join the controller.
This is first AP I'm trying to join and I don't have another one to test with right now. I need this one online so I can pull another offline and get it online.
Devices are on the same LAN and even switch for testing.

I changed the retransmit count and interval on the ME controller shown here:
(Cisco Controller) >show ap retransmit all

Global control packet retransmit interval: 5

Global control packet retransmit count: 8

AP Name             Retransmit Interval  Retransmit count
------------------  -------------------  -------------------
TX-2802-1                5                8


However this is what I end up with when the CWAP tries to join:

(Cisco Controller) >show ap retransmit all

Global control packet retransmit interval: 5

Global control packet retransmit count: 8

AP Name             Retransmit Interval  Retransmit count
------------------  -------------------  -------------------
MX-2802-1                5                8
AP00A3.8E90.F1DA         3 (default)      5 (WLC default),5 (AP default)
(The second one obviously being the one I want  to join)

I have an issue where a HP ProBook 4540s cant see the wireless network. It picks up other nearby networks and all other devices can see the wireless network and connect. The network is not hidden and the laptop has the most up to date drivers. The laptop used to see and connect to the wireless network and nothing has changed in the setup.

Hello,

I have a device, camera that connects to wifi and transmits the video via wifi. How can I read this video buffer from this device using Delphi Desktop application and display the video in this desktop app? Via ethernet LAN connection. Using TCP read buffer? But how to read the right buffer exactly from this particular device? Please show me some code.

Imagine this scenario. I have a video surveillance  camera transmitting video via wifi in country A and I want to see the video in country B. Via LAN.

Regards, Bogomil
