I have to deploy a specific APN configuration to approx. 500 notebooks with internal LTE modems.
Each notebook requires an individual config (username & password) so I need to pre-create the config files automatically i.e. from an Excel sheet and later deploy it to the user i.e. via logon script.

Any idea how to create an APN profile and later import it to the Windows client?

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.

hi techs,
I am trying to play videos and pictures from my Note 5 to my Apple TV and suddenly it's not working in the last one year or so. The last time at work successfully was about a year ago and I was using allcast.  this week I've been trying to connect my phone again and no matter what I try my Note 5 will not detect the Apple TV and if some of the apps do list it it will not connect. I also tried my work Android phone which is I think an S7 and it wouldn't connect either. I have reset the network connections several times on both units and tried repeatedly with no success. I'm starting to wonder if Apple has made a change that everybody but me knows about. at this point what I think I'm going to do is buy the Chromecast and plug that in right alongside the Apple TV to see if I can use that to interface with my phone since all of the apps I've downloaded aren't working at all. My Note 5 is up-to-date with the most recent software and the Apple TV is also up-to-date with the most recent software and it is only about one year old. Any assistance with this issue is appreciated.
 thank you

There are several users with Macbook Pros in the office & about a week ago, once of them started having network issues.
The only thing he could connect to was a Win 2k8 server inside the LAN, that's used for remote access, when connected to network via Wifi. He couldn't get on Internet or couldn't connect to me via Instant Housecall. Once he plugged in an Ethernet cable, everything worked as was expected. He's getting IP address from the same server, whether wired or not, but for some odd reason it won't let him out to internet when on Wifi. Other mac users all are having no issues.
Any suggestions?

A wireless AP is configured with Channel 3 (11b/g/n) and Channle 132 (11a/n/ac). How does a AP client decide which one to use ?

What does the Signal (db) indicate ? What is the accepable range of connection ?
Thx

I want to add a device to a network that would NOT replace a Comcast router to allow secure wifi guest networking.
What I envision is a device that would be connected to a nework with say a 192.168.0.1/24 subnet using the Comcast router for DHCP.  The guest networking device would have DHCP server built in and dole out say subnet 192.168.2.1/24 addresses.    The device would also block any traffic from going anywhere on the 192.16.0.1/24 subnet other than the gateway out.    Does such a simple home /smb device exist?

I have a Lenovo Yoga 910, which has one 2.0 USB port and two USB 3 ports.  I purchased a Wavelink powered USB hub for additional ports to support an external monitor and a USB keyboard.  I also have a bluetooth mouse in operation with this setup.  I am experiencing significant wifi issues with all the devices in use.  The problem seems to be interference at the 2.4 mhz band??  The performance issues go away when I disconnect from all external devices except the bluetooth connected mouse.  

Also, when I connect a wide screen LG monitor using an HDMI conversion to USB 2.0 into the USB 2.0 port, the monitor and laptop displays work, but the laptop display initially fades to almost totally black and then pops up with the screen, when I access the internet.

The more I read online, the  more confused I get about solutions.  My network adapter is - Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A.  When I perform the netsh command it looks like it should support the 5 mhz band.  I also signed into my router which looks like it supports the dual bands.  

My question is whether I am on the right track or not and how do I change my network adapter to receive the 5 mhz signal.  I cant see that as an option in the properties.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Hello

We have a WiFi network with 802.1x authentication. The system runs with Mikrotik APs and authenticates against a Windows 2012R2 AD using the NAP service.

Overall it works just fine ... except for Windows 10 clients ! MacOS X, IOS or Android devices connect without issues (for instance my Mac just shows:  Authenticated via EAP-PEAP (MSCHAPv2)).

However when connecting from a Win10 machine (tried multiple laptops with various WIFI hardware) the UI prompts for user / pass and then returns a completely unhelpful message "could not connect".

The client machine event log shows (sorry it is a French W10 build)

I am testing a wireless controller. I have installed the virtual wireless lan controller from Cisco, running version 8.5.103.0. The management interface is up and I am logged into the web admin console. The wireless network is setup using layer 2, WPA2 with a passcode. The controller sees the access point. I am getting no errors. The issue, is that I don't see the SSID to connect to it from a client. It has to be a small configuration issue I am missing. I have never setup this vWLC before. The wireless network is in the AP group called 'default-group' and the AIR-CAP2602I-A-K9 AP is also associated with this group. What am I missing?

1. Why can't I see the SSID to connect?
2. Do I need to create a virtual interface for the wireless access point? (only the 'management' interface is active and up).
3. If possible, i'd like to keep the wireless on the same subnet as the rest of the LAN. It's small and I don't want to over complicate things by introducing routing.

I connect the windows 7 with no AV protection and Windows firewall disabled to the LAN and it doesn't ping from any computer if it's on the wireless network via hostname or IP.  However, it does ping when I enabled the wired NIC.  Anyone see this?  The Access Point is in the next room over and I just replaced the AP/Router yesterday,  The old Sonicwall had no wireless connectivity issues for this particular computer.  This one doesn't either.  You can can still do all LAN and WAN surfing but you simply can't ping the wireless computer.  Oh, LAN and WLAN are both on the same segment.

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?

We have (2) DAP-2553 DLink access points installed at opposite ends of a very large building.  Both have the same SSID, Security Settings, Password, etc.

Our laptops connect easily to our network via either one of these access points.  However, as the laptop moves and begins to lose it's signal from one of these access points, I would expect the other access point to provide seamless auto-connectivity to the device.  Instead the device simply drops its connection.

Am I missing something in the initial configuration of the access point?

DLink tech support has been terrible.  Their solution is for me to purchase 2 new access points along with a controller.  This would be a last resort due to expense.

Please advise.

Portable, direct connect server access
Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

I need to change a company's WIFI password.  They are using the Ubiquiti Unifi.  I am not the one who set it up, nor is the company who set it up still around.

When I run the Discover program, it locates the device, showing a particular user name and password.  When I click "manage" I get "The device is already managed.  Please reset the device to factory before perform L3 operation."

All I want to do is change the wifi password.  Seems inexplicably difficult, or complicated.  Anyone have experience with this device?

The network provider in my area recently shut down their 2G service and now my GSM modem doesn't work. Is there another kind of modem that would be compatible with a 3G network? I've looked a bunch of other places and it doesn't really seem to be terribly clear about it.

I have a cable connected to its wan port from a router with broadband


Should it be in one of the 4 other ports of its an access point ?

A customer bought this

Here is a description of the setup I am having difficulty with - we have an Ethernet cable running from a wall jack going up a wall, through some ceiling tile and down another wall in a different room. The wall jack is live. If I connect my wireless router the computer sees the router but  the connection is unsuccessful. I have seen messages such as - limited access, unauthenticated, no internet access etc. I am getting a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx ip address.

This is what I have done to troubleshoot -
1) Reset and reconfigured the router
2) checked the Ethernet cable with a cable tester and found good continuity
3) tried a second router with no success
4) Uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless adapter in the computer
5) Tried different ports on the switch for the wall jack

If I use a shorter cable and keep the router in the same room as the wall jack I can connect. Is it possible my cable tester will show good continuity if both ends of the cable are set the same way but are not set in accordance with proper procedures? Is there something else I should be considering?

Thank you.

Trying to project my Wifi signal to reach 700ft with a beamforming signal to reach my property across the road from me. I was thinking of using a Wireless N600mW smart router R10000 from walmart. Would this be adequate or would this require a directional antenna to broadcast the signal?

Recently we deploy the 8 units Cisco APs and ship with the Mobility Express .Once we connected the uplink to core switch we able to get the IP address correctly in each vlan but we found virtual controller IP up and down and the wireless network also not stable.I try to unplug the uplink using my NB connected directly to AP switch then ping the virtual controller was stable then i try to plug the uplink to core switch again the ping is up and down.

I am sure that some thing is conflicting but don't know what is the cause.Please advise


We have configure APs switch all the port as below:
