Never really messed with them before but got one in today and was a little taken back by the results:

1) It only repeated 1 SSID. Is that normal? I really needed to extend 3.
2) I would have thought it would have kept the SSID the same as the one it was repeating. It didn't. It created a new SSID. That isn't really what I wanted. I wanted to simply extend the original SSID. Now I see two. How is my customer supposed to know which one to connect to? Is this normal?

Aruba wireless controller OS 8.x cli configuration
I am looking to build scripts for deployments of aruba controllers rather than use the gui. Working with Aruba and others, this request has been made but without an answer other than 'use the gui'. With the support of Aruba, the gui is taking between 3 - 4 hours.

Attached is a sanitized version of a script. I believe there are portions of this script where it has to be written to memory before continuing as well as changing directories in various parts. There are so few lines, I dont understand why we cannot simply create a script to automate this part?? Anyone have experience doing this?

Surface Pro user is having WIFI re-connect issues whenever he "undocks" from his dock bar connection, which switches from LAN to WIFI.  I am having to reconnect him manually each time.  Never seen this behavior before with a mobile computer.

Anybody else experiences this. At first, I thought it was our home/office internet but I also see the same thing but to a far less degree when I am out of office.

I used the Lenovo system to check the wifi card driver and it tells me it is up to date.y920.jpg
Any help would be appreciated.

We have a single windows 2012 R2 Host server running 2 Hyperv servers. One is our file server / domain controller running AD and DNS, the other is an Exchange server 2016.

We have a single remote worker that requires access to a shared folder on our file server. He is fully remote working from different sites using many different wifi connections.

What is the easiest way to provide access for this remote connection to the required shared folder, baring in mind he does not have a workstation to remote into on the local network.

He does use Outlook 2016 and has full access to all of his emails, so does have a local account in AD.

Any advice very much appreciated.

Many thanks

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen

we need to find whether D-Link DWM-222 Dongles have any security vulnerability (with latest firmware update).
Do you know any? If not where should I start?

Thanks

I am visiting a client tomorrow (50 WAPs, 5 Switches) to assist them in their wireless dropout issues.
They have cordless wireless phones which were on 2ghz, they upgraded it 5ghz, it didnt resolve the issue.
They have meraki switches and waps, and cisco asa.
Meraki waps they are using are MR 42;
https://meraki.cisco.com/products/wireless/mr42 

I have worked on Meraki SWs and WAPs but never had any issues with them.
Should i start with disabling SSIDs and enable one by one?
Which tools / apps i can install on my computer to diagnose an issue like this?
Thanks.

I have one of those TP link wifi extenders but have not installed it.

When setting up a wifi extender, what is the principle behind the method of setting these up.  Are they supposed to use and replicate the same SSID name of the main cable router in the home or are you supposed to use a different name?

When using one of your internet devices e.g. laptop, should you then try to connect to the wifi extender SSID or the main router?

I just purchased this item and am not yet convinced that I should return it https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016K0896K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's the right product, but I needed the smaller form factor.

It looks like that silver piece that holds it into the computer could be replaced with screws or I could return it and replace it with one that is a smaller form factor.

Assistance in finding either would be greatly appreciated.

I have a client with a Windows 10 home laptop that recently received a batch of windows updates.  After the updates were installed the computer no longer fully boots.  The computer gets to the screen where you see the wall paper and the power off button at the bottom right and the icon for wifi choices at the bottom right - BUT- that's all you see.   You do not see the persons name, or the standard Microsoft "welcome" message.  The laptop had no passwords and will normally boot straight into the windows 10 environment.   After the "update" the laptop stops at the point where you would normally enter a password, but again the entire screen is just one giant wall paper.  If you click anywhere on the screen, the screen changes to the acrylic look but nothing else changes...

 If you wait a few minutes, it goes back to the normal windows wall paper.   Before I resort to reformatting the computer, I thought I would post the question on here.  I have been googling this problem, and have not found anything exactly like this.  If anyone has any ideas or can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have a HP- 15-dc0507na laptop with Windows 10 pro. I'm trying to use a USB wifi card with it but I'm unable to select the USB wifi device when selecting the networks to connect to. The USB wifi adaptor is showing in network connections in device manager and control panel.  The adaptor I'm trying to connect is an Alfa Network AWUS036NHA. Thanks

There is a need to configure a laptop at a location where the wifi it will be connecting to is not at the location where it's being setup.
Once the laptop arrives at the new location it needs to connect to wifi.
Is there a way to  pre-configure a wireless SSID and password to access WIFI prior to sending it out to the new location?
if yes how can this be done?

Is it possible to set a time in which iOS apps on the iphone are updated, say when we are asleep after a certain time e.g. 1am?

Also is there a way to prevent it connecting to e.g. a portable wifi device which I have data limits compared with a home wifi which is unlimited?

Hey Brains Trust!

Has anyone seen this error happening on their AP's? A restart of the AP appears to fix the issue and it randomly moves around my AP's.

Each AP is a Radius Trusted Client as well as the controller. And is impacting a range of devices.

I have 3 Cisco/Meraki MR18 access points that are no longer licensed and therefore bricks.

They have been updated to the latest firmware so the UART method of installing DD-WRT will not work.

Is there anyone out there who can install DD-WRT on these devices for me using the JTAG connection, or any other method?

Please let me know.

Hi,

I have put a ubiquiti pro ac in our warehouse (liquid products) but there are some dead spot at the corner of the warehouse. Warehouse staff they use laptops and tablets in these areas lose their signals or get 1 bar.

I am planning either to move the main wifi in the warehouse to be more central or add another one but I do not see there is any power points in the centre or at the corner.

This might be an eletrician job. However, do you have any other suggestions apart from getting the data outlet and power?

Hello

Need to cover an area with WIFI connectivity  as the following scenario :
Area size 150 x 300 meter
Distance From Access point to first point of area is around 150 meter
Distance from Access point  location to The farthest point of that area is 450 Meter.

What is the best Access Point and Antennas to be used in such situation ?
Thank You

I have two scenarios and just curious what happens in each:
first scenario, I have a client on switch A, switch B in the middle, and a destination network on switch C. VLAN 10 is tagged on port 25 and 26 on switch A. the client is connected to 25, and 26 connects to a port on switch B which is untagged on all ports. another port on switch B connects to port 25 on switch C which also tagged for VLAN 10. port 26 on switch C is tagged for VLAN 10 also and connects to the destination network. does switch B block the VLAN traffic? assume the switch is VLAN aware and all ports are untagged for VLAN 10 on switch B.

I’m asking because I have a complex network and I need to add a VLAN to isolate a guest network so the traffic originating in the core of our server room can carry the VLAN directly out to the Internet- the source here is a wireless network. let me know what you think!

Hi, I'm looking for a WiFi mesh system that can use all hard wired nodes.  I also wanted one I could use a browser to configure.  I have used Asus IMesh, but each node communicates with each other via WiFi and it has caused me issues with distance.  I also used the unifi system, but the tablet app configuration method was wonky to me.

Thanks all.

Hi experts!

I work for an OEM vendor, who for now shall remain nameless :)
We use Sierra Wireless EM7430 (4G + GPS) modules in some of our laptops.

For one particular client he is having 60+ % units regularly "crashing". Not a fatal crash, because a reboot "fixes" it. Until next time :(  

This issue does not occur with a factory image, so probably, it is a problem within the client's SOE. The client is using Microsoft Direct Access as their VPN. Their SOE is based upon Win 10 Enterprise v1809.

The issue is particularly troublesome in that it is intermittent. All seems good and then when their field techs go about their work the 4G network drops off, seemingly with no rhyme or reason. And without visible indication, too, so the field techs continue working without realising their data input is not being recorded. The 4G icon in the Notificaction Area either get s an exclamation mark or it disappear altogether. However their staff don't generally see that as their main ERP app is fullscreen. As stated, a reboot temporarily fixes it; but then they lose any cached data. One thought we had was the problem occurs when the cell service goes in and out (can be common here in Australia). We have tried replicating the issue by sticking a laptop into a microwave (it's like a Faraday cage haha). Cell service dropped off, but no driver crash. Another thought was that maybe when the 4G goes into band 28 / 700Mhz (also common in Aust) maybe that creates a problem. Don’t know …
