as the datasheet indicates, AP 1131 has speed up to 54Mpbs using website speedtest.net to test. If we have only one user use the AP, the speed would be 54Mpbs when he is downloading a big file. if two users use the AP at the same time the speed for each user would be 27Mpbs. of course, the two users use the AP all the time and at the same time. that is why we suppose they are downloading a big file. this way we can compare the speed in different time. if four users are using the AP at the same to download a big file, can we say each one has speed at 13.5Mpbs? Thank you

WLC5508 manage a lot AP1131.  A few of users under one of the AP feel very slow about wifi.  We want to test 2.4GHz or 5 separately. but we only have one ssid, which might contains 2.4 and 5. How can we disable 2.4 or 5 and leave 5 or 2.4 to test each band's speed from WLC side or from user PC side? Thank you

I have a Cisco RV134 Wireless Router in my basement near the back wall of my house. It is 3 feet from the basement ceiling under the family room.

My main office desk is in the kitchen (beside the family room) and I often (as now) use the kitchen table for my Laptop (which is Wireless and only Wired if I bring out my adapter dongle - no RJ45 jack as the laptop is too thin for that).

Using inSSider V4 (MetaGeek) I see 5 GHz signal strength from -59 to about -68 dBm.  2.4 GHz is a bit higher but nothing to be concerned about. Overall wireless performance in my office location is excellent and very (very) good most anywhere on the main floor.

My desktop computer is wired Ethernet and is on the office desk along with my printer which is networked.

I trust you have the picture here.

I want to put a small office (desk and chair) in my second floor Den for those times when I must engage in a telephone meeting and using the Kitchen office is inconvenient.  I have ordered a desk and chair from Staples and should have it next week. The Den office is at the front of the house .

Wi-Fi performance in the Den Office location is -66 dBm to -73 or so dBm or lower strength by a bar or two in my W-Fi Icon.  Sometimes I notice some lag in page load but nothing terrible.

It happens I have an CAT 5e Ethernet connection in the Den attached to my Cisco RV325 VPN main router. The Rogers Hitron Modem, the Cisco RV325 router, and the Cisco RV134 AC router are all on the same …

I have noticed on some Aruba wireless controllers the spanning tree is disabled.  Is there a reason to disable a spanning tree on aruba wifi controllers or on any wireless controllers?

We currently have 13 Access Points controlled by a Cisco WLC 2504.  We have two WLans - one for Guest and one for employees.  Our employees use WLan 1 which accesses the DHCP server on my domain.  The Guest uses WLAN 2 which access the DHCP on my router.  On my DHCP server we have two separate subnets with plenty of IP's available.  Due to some routing issues, I needed to use most of the available IP's for phones.  Once that was cleared up, those IP's are now free again.  My problem is that we are now unable to get an IPV4 address from the employee access point.   We have two subnets, so there are plenty.  What do I need to do to fix this issue.  Interesting enough when I create a separate vlan pn my router, any device connected to the employee access points gives me the error message - no internet access

In the groups of apartment that I stay, there's  a free Wifi for the community
which I could access from my phone/laptop when I move around the vicinity.
However, a reading room right in the centre of this area, the Wifi signal is
often cut off (or intermittently at 1 bar).

Is there anything I can get/install so that I could get the signal in the reading
room (which is a 5m x 3.5m room with glazed glass panels in front, a thick
wooden door & concrete walls on the roof & other sides of walls)?  Even if
I open the wooden door, the Wifi signal strength did not improve.

Until I shift my chair & laptop & sit just 1m outside the wooden door, then
I get 3-4 bar signal.

I don't mind a USB dongle with a 4m USB extender cable (which could be
slipped under the door but do recommend specific eBay/Amazon links
to the items that could be shipped to Singapore.

Btw, I don't have access to the AP and I can't get the management/admin
of this community to boost the signal so this is not an option.

I need to know how to Deny a laptop the ability to connect Wirelessly to all other Wireless networks Except for One, which is on an AT&T portable Hotspot - Mifi.
Using a GPO - Group Policy .   - If this can't be done using a GPO please let me know.
Note: The GPO should be applied to the " Computer " not the users account to deny access.

The laptop is a Windows 7 computer, logging into a Windows 2008r2 domain.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

             I set up a Google Chromebook for my roommate tonight and connected it to our wireless network.  I simply selected our wireless, entered our password, and left the box below it checked by default which brings me to this upcoming question.  By leaving this checked, will it allow people outside of our home to automatically connect or share our wireless?  If so, how can I go back and uncheck or deselect it?  I did all of this in a hurry fashion, so, I might be mistaken on what was read.  I believe the area that was automatically checked had the message of allowing other devices within the home to share this network.  

              Any feedback provided in response to this question will be greatly appreciated.

              Thank you

              George

What were the top attacks of Q1 2018?

The Threat Lab team analyzes data from WatchGuard’s Firebox Feed, internal and partner threat intelligence, and a research honeynet, to provide insightful analysis about the top threats on the Internet. Check out our Q1 2018 report for smart, practical security advice today!

We have a two story building that we need set Wi-Fi within place.  The ISP has installed the modem on the 2d floor but some places in the 2d floor as in the 1st floor has no signal.  Yesterday brainstorming for a solution, repeater came up (due to the cement wall separating offices rooms).   Does any EE has come upon with something similar and how was it solved?  We want to have everyone acces to this Wi-Fi point.

What is the best way to wirelessly connect 2 houses that are 500m apart with line of sight?

Is it just a case of using some cpe antennas and nothing too dissimilar to wirelessly linking a computer to a router?

Was thinking of some netgear equipment but now looking into Ubiquiti

What equipment is best and what is the best practice for it?

I am trying to create a wireless bridge so that I can plug in a hard wired NIC from a device to a Cisco Aironet so that it can participate as a wireless device on my network.  The device is not able to use a wireless adapter natively, which is why I am trying to use the WAP as a bridge.   I have a Cisco Aironet 1700 series WAP.  I have downloaded the autonomous IOS software and have successfully applied it to the device using TFTP and the CLI.  I assigned it an IP address from the CLI and I can get the web interface to show up.  I am missing instructions on making this WAP a bridge to an existing SSID.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

Just to clarify, a device with a NIC will plug into the WAP acting as a bridge (autonomous) to the existing wireless network that has a SSID managed by a Cisco Wireless Controller with several attached lightweight WAPS.  I just need to know how to go about configuring this bridge to get the desired result.

I'm trying to set up a web page that collects information from a user prior to allowing them to connect to a WiFi network. A similar, desired, scenario would be something like when you use free wireless at a hotel or Starbucks, etc. I've already got things set up so when a new device connects, the user is redirected to my page. That page is set up to do what I need it to do, but now I'm at a point where I need to connect the user to the wireless connection. What do I need to do? I'm working on a Cisco network and coding in C# (ASP.NET).

With my Tenvis camera connected to my home's Wifi SSID and my laptop
connected to my home's Wifi, I could http://Tenvis_IP:7777  & see what
the camera sees.

However, at my company, I can't connect my Tenvis camera to the Guest
Wifi as it requires registration plus clicking a couple buttons on the
landing page before the device could connect to Guest network.

Now, I'm replacing the Tenvis with my iPhone using the steps below:
https://www.gottabemobile.com/how-to-turn-your-old-iphone-into-a-security-camera/

However, with both my iPhone & laptop assigned an IP each by Guest Wifi, my
laptop still can't ping the iPhone & can't see the videos despite that both iPhone
& laptop have registered successfully & clicked the necessary buttons to get
authenticated/connected to Guest.  How can I overcome this?

I plan to put the iPhone in my car to monitor the car (using the laptop) as my car
is parked within the vicinity of the company.  I could sign up a data plan for the
iPhone but it's going to cost quite a bit to monitor 22 days, ten hrs per day so
tagging onto the free Guest Wifi.

Need to Connect BlueTooth Transmitter to MacBook

I bought this, with no manual.

I can not see how to  put it in pairing mode.

http://www.trainitright.com/konecta-from-soundwhiz-wireless-bluetooth-audio/

I see a Power button but when I press and hold, nothing happens.

The toggle switch is set to TX for Trasmitter.
 
When I press for a shorter time, I see a show flash of blue...that repeats...

Suggestions?

Thanks
