How can I disable "all INTERNET access, including WIFI"
on the below #4 via gpedit.msc or something else ?

   ** Operating System = Windows 10 Pro
   ** User = 15 year old child
   ** Domain = NO

  1. I login as me since I am a "Local Admin"
  2. All "all INTERNET access, including WIFI"
     fails since I don't need it to work
  3. my 1 year old logs in with NO "Local Admin" rights
  4. All "all INTERNET access, including WIFI" fails
We have several Lenovo laptops, mostly Yogas.  All are having the same issue.  They connect fine to our (and other) wifi network, but the drop after a few minutes.  We've updated the drivers, turned off power saving, and it still happens.  We've tried limiting the dual band to a single frequency, no luck.  Anyone else have this problem.  We have a variety of other laptops by other manufacturers that work fine.  We like the Lenovos better other than this problem.
I wish to add an email account to the email client on my iPhone 7. My  email address is s…….@eircom.net (an Irish  provider, formerly Eircom.ie and now  Eir.ie)
 I have .’chatted’ online with Eir.ie  technical support. They told   me I have to get the details about outgoing and incoming servers from my own internet supplier, which is not eir.ie  but Lycamobile.ie. When I contacted Lycamobile support the didn’t seem to know what I was talking about (and probably I don’t) when I asked them about the  outgoing server I needed from them.
I rarely use Lycamobile for my internet, depending on the local WIFI in my office or home. I always thought that my email works with any  WiFi connection even if my supplier (Lycamobile)  is out of range or down, or if I have clicked on ‘forget this network and enabled a local WiFi). I’m probably wrong.
Anyway I have not succeeded in getting adding the account to my iPhone)
SDN and SD WAN and SD Access and DNA Center

I have read about SDN and SD WAN.  if I understand They both are based on Centralized Control Plane.

So if I have  the Traditional Local Area Network  made up of Access/Distribution/Core   Layers,  and when I want to Implement SDN Technology , at what layer should I integrate SDN.
in other words if there is a hardware on which SDN is installed on, where should that hardware be located ?

SD WAN is WAN Technology , if I want to implement that technology  where should  I put the hardware that holds the SD WAN software.

if you can briefly give the    difference between SDN , SD-Access, SD WAN, DNA Center that might also help clear up the Terminology confusion.

THank you
Hi all,

I have wifi at work which and it is for guest users. it works fine with laptops and other devices. The only App on the mobile phone that is very slow is Whatsup.

I tested with our new App for Microsoft Teams and it works fine. So the issue here is only Whatsup App. My question is:

How can I make this Whatsup App work faster?

Can you help?
A friend of mine recently recommended I get an access point in addition to the router I have.  What access point should I buy?  I have an Apple AirPort acting as my router/access point for about 30 wireless devices in the house.

My plan is to have my router hard wired to my desktop and smart tv, then an access point setup to serve the rest of the devices that use wireless (Nest, Baby monitoring cameras, cell phones, ipads, etc).

When you recommend an access point should I make the Apple AirPort the main router or have the new recommendation be the router and turn the AirPort into the access point?

Thank you.
AIR-AP1852E-B-K AP wont connect to Cisco 2504 Controller.  Is there a way to reset the device and have the controller see it without a console cable being involved?
For a switchport mode trunk, does it allow any VLAN to pass through by default on Cisco router ?

I am new to Ubiquiti. On a previous installation, I used a Windows computer to set up the UniFi Controller.

Can this device replace the need to set up a Windows computer?  It is certainly more compact.

I just upgrade from ESX 4.5 to 6.7 and the controller can not longer see the access points. There have been some changes in ESX for the interfaces, but for some reason it is not working. (I can see one new difference is that the switch and the port can be configured for Promiscuous mode, I tried both but neither work)

Virtual Switch:
1. Allow promiscuous mode Yes
2. Allow forged transmits Yes
3. Allow MAC changes      Yes

Data Port:
1. VLAN ID: 4095
2. Allow promiscuous mode Yes
3. Allow forged transmits Yes
4. Allow MAC changes Yes

Service Port
1. VLAN ID: 0
2. Allow promiscuous mode No
3. Allow forged transmits No
4. Allow MAC changes No

Switch Config:
interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 description trunked port
 switchport trunk native vlan 30
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 21,30,31,40,41
 switchport mode trunk
 spanning-tree bpdufilter enable

Front sideHi,

I have a wireless mouse (Microsoft product); the USB dongle has been paired with this mouse (and also keyboard). (please see the attachment)
Question: Where can I get the software to pair it (Sometimes, I have the usb dongle, but different mouse which is ORIGINALLY (paired by Microsoft).

I know this is a weird question. but I'm sure you can help me with some suggestions please.

Bought a samsung smartthings wifi & hub thinking I can take it anywhere  (portable) but I realized it has to be connected wired (ethernet) to function. Since I have show a demo with this smartthings where I cannot get a ethernet and I have to depend on my wireless modem (portable) for this demo.

Looking for a wireless adapter or some device which can connect to my portable wireless and have an ethernet output, So I can take the ethernet out to connect my smartthing wifi & hub

Not sure, if these can help.


I am using Windows 2012 R2 and have just recently had a windows upgrade. I am using WD Media players to stream my movies from my HP Proliant Server.  My problem is that I can no longer see my media server's VM from any of my WD players. I have had my internet provider check my internet and there are no issues. I can see my my server on my Windows 10 desktop too. But I noticed on my server I can see my server name under network. However, it doesn't show on the top right side of my screen (see attachment). I tried resetting  my modem  and  then my Nighthawk router in that sequence. And still I my WD players are unable to connect to my windows shares. I have even tried changing my sharing options from on to off and back again and no joy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hi Experts

I am on a personal mission to under a little bit more about VoIP.

So we run a Gamma \ Horizon system at work. All configured and working via Cisco.

Our Wifi is controlled via Unfi USG, Switches etc. I've plugged in (With Consent) one of our spare Voip phones into a spare port on one of the Unifi switches and configure on it own Vlan etc.

The phone can call external numbers no problem, but if I try to ring an internal ext the internal phone rings but once connected I can not hear the person on the other end.

I get that something is blocking it or its not configure I just do know where to start trouble shooting,

Maybe someone could point me in the right direction?

I am unsure of the functions of the Ubiquiti Unifi Security Gateway.

The installation I am working on has 8 Ubiquiti Unifi wireless access points.  At the present time I have the Ubiquiti Unifi controller running on a Windows machine.

Is the Security Gateway also a router?  The cable company - Optimum Online - provided a cable modem and a wireless router. Can I replace the cable company's equipment and connect the Security Gateway between the cable modem and the network switch?  

The website says "Integration with UniFi Controller.  This is unclear as to whether the UniFi Controller is built into the Security Gateway, or whether I need to continue using the controller computer.
(I assume that I program the Security Gateway using a computer.)

Ubiquiti also mentioned that the device allows remote management.
Does this require purchasing two units, and then setting up the VPN server?

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!
I have pfsense with the last version …. I have  minipc with wifi bcm43224.
the system is not detected …. I read about that and I see that I have to install bwn on the FreeBSD.
but I don't know how !
any one can help to do that ?

best ap for wireless network setup,’like seeing different channels etc

best one for an android slate ?
 I have a iPhone but there isn’t much available I thing
best all round setting to use.

is N covering just about everything these days in a modern home ?

best encryption? WPA2 ?

I can create two SSIDs to cover all angles if necessary

it’s been about two years since I’ve config Wireless and remember G and N but don’t recall B. B is very dated ?

Cisco RV 110w can I use this as an access point?
Script to Manage Wireless Networks

I have a list of computers on a CSV file. example:

CompA, User1
Comp3, User62

Open in new window

for now each technician will go to each computer:

-open Network and Sharing Center
-Click on Manager Wireless Networks
-Right-Click on  one of the Wireless Networks icon , for instance called: CompWireless  and click on its properties to open  properties window
-Click on Security tab , then click on Advanced, then click on Save Credentials
- in the popup window type in DomainName\username  and password then click OK ,OK, OK on all those windows to close them

I thought if this can be done through script that might save a lot of hassle.

Note: the password is the same for all user accounts on the csv file.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you
I’m staying in a hotel and I opened my MacBook, without thinking. I entered my room number and such to acquire WiFi

How can I tell if it has been infected w backdoor software?
I think I looked at my email
Dear Experts,
I am planning to buy Raspberry Pi and turn it into a home firewall. Do you think this is a good idea esp that I would like to also create a captive portal for wifi access and monitor network traffic .etc

If this works what kind do you recommend ? and what are the exact specs that I need?
Thank you
Hello.  We have an organization (school) that has access points in every room. We typically have no difficulty connecting 15 or so laptops to our wifi but do not have the same success rate with Chromebooks we recently purchased.  Is it possible that Chromebooks behave differently than laptops from a connection standpoint?

I'm trying to setup a single R610 Zoneflex wireless AP to have 2 networks, one that has internet access only and another that has internet and office resource access.  This is going to be used at a skating rink where our members will be accessing the internet only and our staff both.
I'm new to ruckus devices, but I have setup Unifi and other devices.

Any suggestions on how to configure this properly?
I have a Lexmark e460dn laser printer on my home network plugged into a network switch, which is plugged into my wireless router. It is visible wirelessly to my MacBook Air 11" over the wifi part of the network (the MacBook has no Ethernet connection) and I can print to it without problems. However, I want to be able to print to it from my other Apple mobile devices (iPads & iPhones of various ages and various iOS versions). How would I go about adding it to them?
