An 169.254.xx.xx suggests that your Wireless lan card was unable to obtain an IP Address from a DHCP server. This can happen if no connection was made to a DHCP server (for example, no connection to the router because of a broken cable or faulty router) but given that you are on wireless and it says you are connected, this is not the case for you. The ...

Ok,... so I bought a second router and used it as an access point. Lo and Behold I could access my NAS. It turns out the Aztech router (as I suspected) is faulty (or at the very least can't handle network attached storage over wifi). Nothing wrong with my setup, nor the NAS... just that the router just couldn't do it. But I need this Aztech router to ...

It could be a number of things - the best guess being interference from other AP's your phone can hear in the bedroom, but not in the living room. If one of your devices runs android, Download "Wifi Analyser" and have a look at the various networks available in each location and their strengths to test this theory, and consider changing the AP frequency or ...

First, what brand are your laptop and phone? Apple products are known to be bandwidth hogs. You could try to change the channel and or frequency of the WiFi. And it is possible that something in that room could be causing interference and distorting the signal.

According to the manual that router supports SSID and Wireless Client isolation, my guess is you have Wireless Client Isolation (or both?) turned on, so the WiFi client are isolated form the wired network. If enabled, the Wireless Client Isolation blocks communication between wireless devices connected to the AirStation. Wireless devices will be able to ...

Check for "guest isolation" in router wifi properties and disable it. Some wireless routers have a function called "guest isolation". With this option enabled, wifi connected hosts can't wiew other connected hosts on the network. Disabling this feature should solve the issue.

[LAN access from remote] is triggered anytime an external connection is routed into the internal network via a forwarded port. This can be either an explicit (ie: a specific port or range of ports set with port forwarding/port triggering) or automatic (ie: UPNP) route. Most of the time, this message indicates success, but if you have invalid port forwarding ...

Your switch isn't a switch, it's a router, with its own DHCP server. Look closely at the IPv4 adresses of your PCs 2 & 3. They're in the 192.168.x.x range. PC 1 has an IP of 10.x.x.x. This tells me they are getting their IP's from different sources. Disable the DHCP server in your Dynex router, connect all PCs and the Cisco router to LAN ports on the ...

First you must be knowing about the default gateway(you can find it from the network and sharing center on your computer) about your router it might be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 try using in different browsers to open this link and so you can get access to the admin tool of your router and change the password for your router. Ensure that you are connected ...

You can access your admin tool of your router using the default password Username – admin Password – password (case-sensitive) or the password(if you have customized it to a new one). Then check on the MAC address filtering section, whether the specific MAC address of your system is added to the list. Also refer to this link to get more clarity about the ...

MTU stands for maximum transmission unit, ie. the IP datagram size limit (in bytes). Default and maximum MTU allowed by Ethernet is 1500. Let's imagine we have a network like the one below. C is a client; S is a server; X and Y are routers. ___ ___ ___ ___ | C | | X | | Y | | S | ...

These are NTP packets (as indicated by the port 123) sent from local servers in your server's area. It's the Network Time Protocol response to your server requesting time updates via ntpd. Since iptables blocks these, your time will not get updated. It therefore makes sense to let incoming NTP traffic through, but only if it's from your own NTP request. If ...

-depending on your brand and model- yes, Most routers will allow you to disable dhcp and act as a bridge or access point. This will allow your old router to just act as a normal network device with file sharing.


1

No, there's no way to do this. if you're using the modem as a bridge, then it can only be on one side of the router. It clearly must be on the WAN side because it has the connection to the WAN. Thus it cannot be on the LAN side. You need a switch.

Not sure if the question is still relevant, but still wanted to share the result of my investigation.. I just switched from a Cable ISP to Bell Fibe, for both TV and Internet. Bell still don't have Fibre to home in my area, so is is still somewhat a DSL type connection. Bell provided a HUB2000 integrated modem/router. the device is very user friendly, but ...

There are a few things that are working against you here: The router is old and doesn't support 802.11n (assuming your laptops are capable of "n" that could make a big difference) Distance between router and laptop Degradation of signal due to physical obstacles (i.e. the floor) Degradation of signal due to intereference from other wireless devices ...

Assuming you mean 1 MB/s, this seems about right. A realistic system like this probably has a hardware maximum of about 54Mbps and a usable link bandwidth of about 20Mbps given typical parameters of distance, interference, and so on.. There are 8 bits in a byte, all data has to be sent twice (once to the AP and once from the AP), data has to be acknowledged, ...

I configured the local wifi router to provide a wireless network with a separate SSID to make sure that devices connect to the correct router. Both local and main wifi router were configured to provide IP address, gateway and DNS servers through DHCP. An old notebook was connected to the "Internet" port of the local router. The LAN connection of the ...

Configure your dd-wrt as a proper router, i.e. put them in a different subnet than your home equipment. Let's say your guests are in 192.168.10.0/24, while your home stuff is in 192.168.73.30.0/24. Also, let us assume your ISP-provided router has IP address 192.168.30.1 Find the names of the dd-wrt NICs. On my system, br0 is the LAN-side NIC, eth1 the ...

Enable MultiAP Isolation option looks similar to Client Isolation. The former option is available in D-Link 2750.

As reported by @davidbaumann , your problem is the lack of a "default gateway": without a DEF-GW you cannot access nothing beyond your local subnet. More in detail, it looks like even if your device is marketed as a "wireless extender", OpenWrt is perfectly able to recognize both the LAN-interface (eth0) and the WLAN-interface (wlan0) (...and as such, it ...

Resolved. I was able to resolve my issue by flashing my router. I used the custom firmware from dd wrt, and configured my router as a bridged repeater for my landlords internet connection. This allowed me to have physical connections to my router in my apartment, as well as wireless connections. Minus occasional connections dropping, I haven't experienced ...

It seems like your Access Point can't connect to the internet, as there is no default gateway configured. For now, you can just run this, in order to connect temporarily: route add default gw 192.168.1.1 eth0 For later, set 192.168.1.1 as your default gateway in the network config. I assume 192.168.1.1 is your router IP, if not, change it according.

I did some research and found that I needed a Realtek RTL9182SE driver for the Wireless LAN Controller. Unfortunately Realtek only provides official drivers up to Kernel version 3.2.x but Linux Mint 17.1 is at 3.13. So in the end I just decided to look for a Linux distro that did have support for this device and found "PCLinuxOS MATE Desktop (2014.12)" and ...

That looks like it will work - One configured as the main with DHCP, and the other simply an access point with different SSID. Make sure firewall is switched off on the ASUS. Make sure that the ASUS has 192.168.1.1 for gateway/dns. Some routers don't behave properly when used like this so if you still have problems get a dedicated wifi access point for house ...

Check DNS settings on the router, modem and other devices. Also consider a factory reset, rather than just a reboot - the reset will completely clear all settings. If you are using default (ISP-assigned) DNS servers, consider changing them to an alternative, such as Google's 8.8.8.8 - if you observe this behaviour stopping, consider checking with other ...

Given new routers go for as little as $20, and the last new one I bought in that price range (B/G/N wifi plus four wire ports and separate uplink) supports IPv6, if you confirm your existing home router doesn't support the new standard, the best course might be to just buy a new one.

Start by checking your firewall rules,, and see if you have ICMP filtering rules on - that does affect pings. Next, check your router - it might have diagnostic tools which can have the router itself ping sites and such. See if there are such tools and then use the tools to try and replicate the problem. If they are replicated at the router itself, check ...

From the point of view of your apartment's router, your router is just another device connecting to the network. Since you control your personal router, you can then connect as many devices as you like (and your router supports). Your router will do all the network address translation on your local area network, so it will make no difference to your ...

You want the upstairs router to actually act as just a bridge/switch, not really a router/gateway. On the upstairs router, disable NAT and DHCP service so that it just bridges between WAN and LAN. If it doesn't have an option for this, then take the Ethernet cable that's in its WAN port (i.e. the cable that goes downstairs) and move it to one of its LAN ...

Are you sure that you see OpenDNS page saying that page is not found? In my opinion, Cisco routers have problem with parsing username in the form of e-mail address. They recognize @ sign as the end of credential section and try to use mail server name as a ddns server name. So, in my logs I see 404 page but coming from e-mail system.

Though everyone that preceded me has said something correct, I feel the answer to your query needs to be elucidated further. The important IP address is the one reported by dyn.com, because this is the address that is recognized by anyone who is not a customer of your ISP. The other IP address, that on the WAN side of your router, is an internal IP (the ...

Two things to check: First, realize that PPTP is a trickier case than run-of-the-mill port forwarding, because it doesn't just use a port number of well-known transport-layer protocols TCP or UDP, it also uses a whole other transport layer protocol called GRE (IP protocol number 47). So when testing port mapping, put up a web server on port 80 and test ...

Another issue could be about your connection getting proxied through another system. As an example, my employer is province wide, and we proxy all our Internet through our own IP address, but they leave to the Internet in another city. Every site I go to assumes I'm in another city, as long as I'm connected to this network.

It very well could be a double NAT issue. I have seen ISP’s provide a private IP from their modem as it also acts as the router. Could this be the case with you? The WAN IP that you see on your router what is the first octet of the IP? if it starts with 192.168.x.x 172.16.x.x -172.32.x.x 10.x.x.x These are non-routable private IP address and will ...

In general, ISP Gateway devices (modem+router all in ones) are not configured to allow the use of an external internet connection. However, if your device has a WAN port, it's possible you can use it without engaging its internal modem component. If your device doesn't have a wan port, in some cases, modified,unofficial firmware can sometimes convert one of ...

The ROUTE patch is a kernel patch which needs to be applied to the Linux Kernel source code for iptables to work: you can find here all relevant information.

Instead, new iptables extensions are detailed here and these do work. ...

Connecting your cable modem directly to a PC is sometimes a necessary troubleshooting step - to ascertain whether problems are with your router or not, for example. Assuming this is a cable modem, and that it behaves like mine: Cable modems will only recognize a single device behind it - if you want to share the connection, a router does that and is ...

I finally resolved this issue by changing the DNS server to automatic (previously it was set to use the google DNS servers 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4). The new router is running OpenDNS, and apparently didn't like clients connecting to other DNS servers. I'm still not sure why the computer wasn't accepting the replies it was obviously receiving from the google ...

Are either router or switch redundant? The kind of router you use at home has some consumer-friendly features that make it a little different from a "true" enterprise router, and I think that may be the cause of your confusion. If you look at the back of your home router, you will probably see four ports labeled "LAN" where you can connect your devices ...

A /24 is equivalent to a netmask of 255.255.255.0, so you can't stuff two networks inside the 192.168.10.0/24. You should tell the router that it has 192.168.10.0/25 (a netmask of 255.255.255.128) for the first network, and 192.168.10.128/25 for the second network.
