There are many questions which deal with this but here is a crash course on what are called 'Private IP Addresses' as defined in RFC 1918 IP addresses were broken up in to what are called classes as seen here, this is no longer used (replaced with CIDR) but may help to understand different sizes of networks: There are a couple basic distinctions ...

400Mbps = ~50MBps 1Gbps = ~120MBps Assuming you've a 1G network then at most you'll transfer around 110MBps real world, but there are a few potential limits. One being SMB/CIFS overhead and the other being the speed of the destination. The newer timecapsules have been benchmarked at 130MBps read and 100MBps write so should be able to saturate GigE but ...

Usually there are quick-start guides to do this. It sounds like all you actually need to do is set up wireless security. It can be done wireless, but it's more of a pain, and will force you to disconnect once or twice. Edit - As you've now provided your router model, these instructions are specific to your router. Use Method 2 from Page 4 onwards, skip the ...

As your network is behind NAT, you won't be able to use a standard PING to each device. The ping utility sends ICMP requests, which will be responded to by a single device when sent to a WAN IP address, usually your NAT gateway (in this case your WiFi router I believe). This is the intended behaviour, and is one of the fundamental security aspects of NAT, ...

Update : I have resolved the issue somehow. I 'found' a version of Windows 8.1 instead of the original windows 8 image I had. After using this new version, the whole thing went smoothly. I can only assume it is because the drivers for the newer hardware was not included in the older windows 8 image I had.

Don't automatically dump it. This multicast can have effect on displaying SMB shares. The shares are there, they just might not display on other machines. If the machine that blocks these multicasts is acting as an old type master browser in a non-DC (or AD) controlled network (like a home network), it can take down the SMB listings for anywhere from one ...

I currently have a Range extended on my network and I did not connect to the router at all. In my case I connected to the laptop Ethernet port and configured it completely on my laptop with 8.1. I did not connect to the router. Instead of bringing the modem/router to your desired area you can just leave the router/modem where they are and wirelessly move ...

Yes, this is quite doable - You simply need to add a route out the WIFI's gateway for the VPN endpoint, and ensure that you don't have a default route out that Interface, and that the VPN only advertises the route to the server running the DB. Once you have done that, everything should fit together seemlessly.

Well, if you mean the Wireless LAN Adapter labeled Wireless LAN adapter Yerel Ağ Bağlantısı* 2, it appears to not currently be associated with a wireless network, and thus, has no IP address. Once it associates with the router's BSSID, it should acquire an IP address. However, read further. An inside-private IP address is needed in order to forward ...
