Dear Experts,

I am not able to get tech support to help me with this via chat and I can't get them on the phone.

I can connect to the devices via SSH. Not sure what commands are needed to run to get the devices adopted.

Hi, I recently switched to W-10 and used ethernet connection to modem/router. I was surprised not having to provide a ssid and passcode to connect, and wary as I am seeing my status as  logged on to a 'local network', (my modem/router).  My question is, am I better protected using the wired connection, or should I unplug and connect thru wifi?

Hey Guys,

I am upgrading my client's office wireless and confused on what UniFi WAP to purchase.  There is UAC AC Pro and UAP AC Lite.  What is the difference?  Are both for office use?  Also, is 5Ghz band used at business?  Thanks.

HI all,

I have a Spectrum cable modem with IP address 192.168.0.1.

I used a TP-Link powerline adapter to get a signal to a room that's rather far away from the cable modem.

I then hooked up an ASUS RT-ACRH13 to the powerline adapter and set it to "Access Point" mode. After I did this, the IP Address that the Asus grabbed was 192.168.50.1. I wanted to be able to admin the Asus, so I manually changed the IP address to 192.168.0.2.

If i connect a desktop to the Asus Access Point via LAN cable, I can access the net no problem. A couple of WiFi SSID's are broadcasted from the ASUS. When I connect to the WiFi signal, the devices can connect, but get no internet.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Got this cam Samsung from Costco SNH-V6431BN/US

I was able to connect to my WiFi but the connection is constantly dropping and I need to re-setup every time after that.  Does it have to be very close to the WiFi router?  Other devices are OK on the same router and not dropping.

2nd question.  Is it only designed for the mobile app?  Manual doesn't provide any instruction via the regular browser.

Thanks.

I have Win 10 desktop (hp).

This AM, internet stopped working. I have wireless connection through local cable co. (Cox).

I have dealt by phone with the cable company several times, they are sending a rep, probably tomorrow.

My question is, I am doing this question via my iPad, for which the wireless works. On the PC it says "(name of wifi), No Internet". Per the Cable company,  I did a disconnect, then connect. The yellow triangle with ! In it disappears, I try to connect to google.com, says server not found and the yellow triangle is back.

Any ideas what I can try?

Thanks

I have cisco 5508 lan controller and 2702i WAPs with static IP address. I want to remove static ip address and assign through cisco ios dhcp server. I'll do the following:

On cisco switch:
ip dhcp pool <pool name>
network <ip network> <netmask>
default-router <default-router IP address>
dns-server <dns server IP address>
option 43 hex <hexadecimal string>

Then go to WLC GUI and go to each AP and click "Clear all config"

On switch the ports are configured as:
switchport access vlan 111
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan 111
switchport trunk allowed vlan 9-11, 111
spanning-tree portfast

All WAPs are in flexconnect mode.

Are these steps correct? If not, please list detailed steps. Thanks.

How can you determine the MTU setting of a access point on a Cisco 5520 wireless controller from the command line.  From the command line, is there a command which will display what the access point MTU setting is?

Thanks

I have a situation where we have about 30 people sharing a big warehouse. We have 4 access points in the building and they are mounted to the ceiling. There is absolutely nothing in between the APs and the workstations. It is one large open space.

We have recently stated having what I think are saturation issues. I am guessing that each person is connecting 2 or 3 devices to the access points.

Here is my question(s) its like a 3 in 1..sorry...

* What is the rule of thumb for amount of connected devices per access point (I heard 15 - 30)
** Is there a solution that each AP will stop accepting new connections at the number I set (so if we find that 20 is the magic number I can set the AP to stop accepting connections at 20)
** If we add more APs say, at least 2 more than we need, I would assume the new connections would route to a further AP, but would probably be better as it would be less saturation.

Thanks in advance experts!

We need to install a Wireless connection between 2 building (about 30m apart), the devices will be put on the inside the windows so not on the outside of the buildings.

The devices will need to support bridged mode as they are just used to connect the networks that are on the each side, no client devices will connect to these devices.

Has anyone got a suggestion for a set of devices or know if the Cisco Aironet 2800 or 3800 can do function as required above?

I want better wifi coverage and I thought an Ap working with my poe switch will do fine.

I am impressed by the reviews on draytek products. but also seems UAP-AC-PRO  is the king of the market.

https://www.draytek.co.uk/products/business/ap-910c. I like the multi ssid feature on this.

What are your thoughts between both.

I'm trying to cascade two routers together in order to use the second router for only wireless devices in an office setting.
The main router is a Cisco ASA5506X and the second router is Linksys AC1900. I've been researching everywhere for several weeks and still cannot find a working solution. Unfortunately, I had the right setup a year ago when I had two older routers doing exactly the same thing here but lost some of my notes and can't recall all the details.

The main Cisco router/ IP address: 10.1.129.2, Subnet 255.255.255.0

I've tried both of these scenarios below but neither work (I have some networking experience but not nearly
enough to toy with the sophisticated Cisco ASA5506X). The Cisco ASDM interface for accessing the router is bizarre to me
versus web-based access. Under the Interface Settings, I simply added the Linksys device with the IP settings below.

The second Linksys router/IP address (Scenario 1): 10.1.130.1, Subnet: 255.255.255.0
The second Linksys router/IP address (Scenario 2): 192.168.0.1, Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Linksys Internet settings/ Internet IP address: 10.1.129.2; Subnet: 255.255.255.0; Gateway: 10.1.129.1 (another Cisco router for P2P); DNS 1: 10.1.129.2 (probably not correct) and DNS 2: 10.1.129.53 .

Notice any missing information? The main Cisco router DOES NOT and SHOULD NOT use DHCP. My local Domain Controller also serves as the DHCP server and DNS server (IP: 10.1.129.53). In my older setup, I had a D-Link router …

Is anyone aware of issues (and work-around) with setting up a Cisco 5520 wireless controller SNMPv3 credentials?  I can get my controller to work via SNMPv2 but not version 3.  I have other wireless controllers (5760's) which have no issue in communicating with my Cisco Prime via SNMPv3.  The only one with issues is my new Cisco 5520.
Are there known issues with SNMPv3 and the Cisco wireless controller??

Appreciate any help

Thanks

We have a current network all hard wired with its own internet connection and a second wireless network with a separate internet connection. I have one SSID for Guests on the wireless side and I want to create a second SSID so if you need to access the wired side of the network with a laptop it is possible. How would I keep the setup as is and network the two to be able to access the wired side via the wireless?

Can I connect the NVR into a wireless access point (can't get a network drop to the main fios router). Need internet for the video app for smartphones. I imagine the images will slow down. Not quite sure how to set this up. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I've purchased 4 Sonicwall(Dell) Sonicpoint ACi units, connected to my Sonicwall NSA2600 firewall (WLAN port X4). Everything's working fine using PoE injectors (+ unmanaged switch) but I'm not able to get it working using a UniFi POE-150W PoE switch. All requirements describled here https://support.sonicwall.com/sonicwall-sonicpoint-series/kb/sw12867 are met, the switch supports 802.3at and max output pr port is 34W (min is 25 or 30 W). I'm able to connect to the WLAN (set up as virtual APs) but I'm not able to connect to internet, not getting IPs from DHCP. Any ideas how to solve this? (in my head this should be straightforward, maybe I'm wrong?)

Is there a how-to guide to deploying wireless access points in a small business?  Something that will help in deciding the number and placement of APs based on configurations of the space , the building materials, (gypsum wallboard on metal studs),  the number of PCs to be served. and the optimal wireless standard e,g, N, AC etc.

Trying to figure out if I could use one of these new wi-fi mesh router systems in 10K sq ft office.  Wi-fi coverage is sometimes intermittent - using a Sonicwall TZ215 router and Tp-Link PoE hub with 2 additional tp-link EAP 330 access points.  Advantage of the Sonicwall router is antivirus and firewall.  
Advantage of the wi-fi mesh systems (eero, Velop, Orbi, etc) would be the complete wi-ficoverage.  Is the firewall in these good enough?
If not, what would be a good alternative?

Hi,
I have a Cisco 2504 Wireless LAN Controller and it works great for our WLAN.  The only issue I have not been able to figure out is when a laptop or other mobile device is on the WLAN and you open Network from the desktop the only computer listed is the one you are on and using to access the Network folder.  If I plug a network cable to the laptop/mobile devices and now it is hard wired to the LAN and I open Network folder all the computers appear.
Suggestions on why this is happening?
I plugged in a wireless router off the shelf Linksys and while only connected to the Linksys I was able to see all computers in the Network folder.

Thanks in advance.

Coming soon!  Ideal for large-scale A/V applications, ATEN's VM3200 Modular Matrix Switch is an all-in-one solution that simplifies video wall integration. Easily customize display layouts to see what you want, how you want it in 4k.

I asked a related question earlier - but as I'm about to deploy I noticed a detail. If the current root CA has " Trust for client with EAP-TLS" checked If I add the second root CA and intermediary cert - should I also have " Trust for client with EAP-TLS"  checked on the new certificates? Or does that need to only be checked in one place or another?



The earlier Q: My security group asked me to add root and intermediate certs to Cisco ACS so we can use that for wifi EAP TLS. Where I'm getting logged down is that I see two different places for adding certs.

1) Users and ID Stores/Ex ID Stores/Certificate Authorities. There is currently an internal root cert there. But I don't see an intermediate issuing cert.

2) Sys Admin/Configuration/Local Certs.

Do I just add the root cert and intermediate cert to the first location? Anything I need to do with Local Certs? Any CSRs that need to be generated and fulfilled?

There's a data cap on the internet usage in the office. But unfortunately, seems every week, it gets burnt out. I run a local network of about 22 computers run by Lan cables and wireless, I block out wireless devices like phones and tablets or other computers

Is there a program I can install on either my router or each of the computers on the network to know which employee is consuming what, and when

I have a Cisco ASA5505 with a Cisco small business WAP 121 connected to it.  Once users connect to the wireless it works fine, but if they disconnect, and then connect again, they have to forget the wireless network to be able to connect again.  I have tried two different WAP 121's and get the same results.  Typically I would go with an enterprise WAP, but for this deployment and it being a very small office it was not in the budget.  Any assistance would be great.  Thanks.

For years we have been using directional Black Box LWE120 equipment for outdoor wireless connectivity in the range of 500' - 1500'.  Each radio only costs $100, plus they are easy to configure, and they work great for years (none has died yet).  Better yet, the support services from Black Box have met every need, talking to real live American techs the moment I call them.

The bad news is that the company is phasing out this excellent product line with no replacement in sight.  So now I need to start all over again with a similar product, preferably like my description above.  And, I will need a product line that includes an omnidirectional model like their LWE121, and be able to set one up as a repeater where I don't have direct line of sight between the two offices--like I'm about to have to install for a new customer.

Finally, I go back to great support...someone recently said to check out Ubiquiti products, but I read numerous complaints from IT guys saying they never could talk to a real person, and had trouble getting ANY support, etc...headaches I definitely don't need.  

Any suggestions for a product line that meets these criteria will be greatly appreciated.  TIA
