The problem you are experiencing is due to interference caused by RF overlapping channels. 802.11 RF Channel Specification: The IEEE 802.11 standard establishes several requirements for the RF transmission characteristics of an 802.11 radio. Included in these are the channelization scheme as well as the spectrum radiation of the signal (that is, how ...

I still have no idea what happened, but it would appear cursing at the darn thing actually worked, for a change. Logged into a different user, hard disabled and enabled the network and for whatever dubious reason, that helped.

Whats disturbing to me, is the ping of 800ms to your router. This means almost a second gets lost in one-way traffic! This may not be higher then 20ms on busy occupied routers! To me it sounds like you are not connected directly; There is, intentionally or not, some software or hardware that "hijacks" your signal. Most likely cause is a dialer or VPN that ...

I think the problem is that your home network is behind NAT, you need to configure your tablet to access hosts behind NAT. Here is a guide which is related to your question: Allow Remote Desktop connections from outside your home network

Shouldn't you update your PC's IP after changing starting IP in router? Because router holds a table of know MAC-addresses and every time you try to assign new address you will get the same IP you got last time. As first step in process you have to change routers IP, move it to another subnet. Then you have to release and renew DHCP lease on you client. ...

Yes, you want to get a router with WiFi and Ethernet. Connect your modem to that and then connect your PCs to it. Then it will be fine as long as that is on.

You need to make sure you capture the initial EAPOL handshake, as indicated in the answer when you asked the same question on the UNIX&Linux site. Try starting a capture, turning your phone off, turning it back on again, and going to foobar.com.

Receiver and mouse usually both have a "pair" button on them. Press the one on the receiver first, then the one on the mouse.

You can’t do what you want because your ISP won’t give you two public IP addresses. Instead, you should use a router with NAT, which is how your current setup works. Seeing how you’re probably able to reach both living room and office via Ethernet, you can probably also install an Ethernet connection going from your office to your living room. In your ...

Yes they will. AC support implicitly includes N support. 2.4GHz clients will always use 802.11n 2.4GHz, and 802.11ac 5GHz will support 802.11n clients.

You can get a wifi extender and connect the printer to the wifi extender to the 1st router(as shown below): I think you should use a wifi extender to connect the the other part of your house and not use a 2nd router.

Its probably not worth it - unless you control the connection to the WIFI server in which case you can use @milindr advice above. Depending on which TL-WR720N you have - I understand there are very different versions, you may be able to replace the firmware with OpenWRT and then configure it as an AP Client, which will do what you want - of-course you risk ...

Windows has the ability to turn most Wi-Fi network cards to an access point, which can be used to share your Internet connection on your laptop with other devices. However, there is no built in software to use this feature in a meaningful and easy to use way. So you would need third party open source or commercial software to use this feature. Virtual ...

To connect to ssh you need to connect to port 22 on target server. To do so you need: Ensure that ssh server (openssh-server) is installed and running on Fedora machine. Find out your target machine external IP address (for example, run curl 'http://icanhazip.com' or open that URL in a browser). Find out your target server local IP address (for example, ...

You need two things: 1) Ssh client on the computer you are (A). That is probably already installed on your computer by default (Ubuntu). 2) Ssh server on the other computer (B) If you have not installed the ssh server it's rather sure missing. Keys are very useful but not mandatory to make the initial connection. Just type ssh 192.168.x.y or ...

For Linksys e3000, disable the Frame Burst settings(next to AP isolation) worked fine for now. Earlier it worked fine after disabling AP isolation, but again stopped after some time.

The device used to "split" is called Ethernet switch. That device can split to any number but some consideration is needed: Your service provider may be happy to allow only limited number of end devices at the line. Each device you connect to main line will need a different ip address --- which is provided by your ISP. Your router will take one ip-address ...

Assuming the host machine has working wifi I think either Vmware Player (free) or VirtualBox (free and open source) should work. You don't say what OS the host machine is running. I have run both of these virtualizers on a host laptop running Windows 8.1 with wifi; the client systems (not running Windows 8.1, but I don't see why it should be different) had ...

macbookpro.local is probably your LocalHostName; 1 of the 3 computer names used by Mac OS X (HostName, LocalHostName and ComputerName). If I remember correctly, it’s used for either Bonjour or AFP. ssh on the other hand uses the IP protocol and is not Mac OS X specific. It will attempt to resolve your “hostname” with DNS. You can find your hostame by using ...

How are these two Macintosh computers connected? Via a router? The way hostnames like macbookpro.local work is they are broadcast on the network via Bonjour which is simply Apple’s fancy name for broadcast/multicast network services: Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of devices and services on a local ...

Most consumer grade 802.11 devices are not capable of master mode, which is needed for an access point. Depending on the sophistication of the 802.11 device, it may or may not support concurrent master/client modes. Some do. An entry level device which supports master mode is the Alpha. It is cheap and reliable. You can look at HostAP, which is a ...

Yes. Because access point mode requires a fixed channel, however, the client is also limited to this channel. Only with multiple radios—pretty much your current setup—can you bypass this limitation. And then there’s also the fact that you can’t bridge Wi-Fi client interfaces to Ethernet interfaces or Wi-Fi host interfaces. So unless using relayd or ...

Yes you can actually use your RJ45 cable coming from your ISP as an input to the ADSL+WIFI beetel router and can use the same to route the internet. All you have to do is got to your router settings page, 192.168.1.1 and username: admin and password: admin . Go to Interface setup -> LAN . Check the DHCP option and you can see thre options like Enabled , ...

You can figure out for certain whether it is a hardware issue by booting up with a Live Linux distribution (like Knoppix) and seeing whether your ports still port. http://knoppix.net/ http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ If the problem is electronic then I'd venture to say that a professional laptop technician may be your best bet.

Ah yes, well, VirtualBox doesn't emulate a wireless network device. It only emulates a handful of wired network cards. In your case, the network card VirtualBox is emulating for your Windows 8.1 Virtual Machine is an Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM) (unless you purposefully changed that setting). Still, you should be able to get perfect network/internet ...

It looks like you're getting connected just fine at the Wi-Fi/802.11 link layer, but not getting a DHCP lease. The output of ipconfig getpacket en0 might be helpful. It would be helpful to know if clicking "Renew DHCP Lease" helps. It's in System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced > TCP/IP. Turning on sudo ipconfig setverbose en0 and then watching ...

On DCF each equipment tests the channel and if it's free, it simply transmits using all the bandwith available. The other equipments when sense that the channel is busy wait a random time before trying again. To make it clear, I will use an example: Imagine you are part of a group of people trying to give an speech on a dark room. You don't know how many ...

well, bandwidth doesn't get allocated so much as used, and DCF is used to determine whether a host can get dedicated access to a shared medium (in this case the channel) long enough to send its packet. Often we use the term 'bandwidth' incorrectly. Bandwidth is really a constant based on the network media. What you are really interested in is Transfer rate, ...

If you're actually using an Access Point (AP), that's likely the source of your problem. What you need is a Router, because the cable modem is providing only a single usable connection to the customer equipment. The cable modem may in fact only be allowing connections to the "outside world" from the first device to attempt such a connection. With a router, ...

Configure the AP with the WAN setting of the initial computer (IP 10.201.0.226 Subnet mask 255.255.0.0, Default gateway 10.201.0.1 + the original DNS). You can either put it statically or change the MAC address on the WAN side of the AP so it gets this IP automatically. Enable DHCP on LAN side. Let it give all clients a class like 192.168.1.1 (LAN side AP ...

The reason may be that your PC has noisy, poor quality USB port. You may want to try a powered hub. Also, raspberry Pi can be configured as an extender - you'd need an ethernet cable though. Yet another exotic solution (in case it is an issue with Windows) would be to install Virtual Box on your desktop, set up a Linux VM and let Linux manage the dongle and ...

You seems to be doing it correctly. Try isolating the problems. Can you ping 8.8.8.8 from your TP-LINK DD-WRT router's shell? Can you tracert 8.8.8.8 from your laptop when your internet connection appears to be gone? Would it work if you use static IP on your laptop?

Another thing you can try is to upgrade your wifi to 5ghz so it doesn't even see the 3.0 interference. I had similar issue and picked up an AC 1750 router and connected to the 5ghz bssid and noticed the issue disappeared. Never gave it a second thought til now. Besides the interference resolution this will also increase your networks speed by a noticible ...

Since,increasing the DHCP pool by merging subnets could increase overhead and slow down the network, what i did was to first of all clear all ip bindings on the server. (this is because the leases on IPs were infinite, thus all old devices were clogging resources). Then i reduced the changed the lease period to 4hours and dhcp began issuing addresses again. ...

There is no built-in feature to do this, but you could achieve what you want with an AutoIT script with some help from WMI.

183 leased + 59+7 reserved = 249. Your IP address pool is full. If the addresses lower than 192.168.1.60 are not used, try to reallocate reserved to pool: ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.10 That will give you 50 extra IP addresses to assign via DHCP. Note that you only should do this if the IP addresses between 192.168.1.10 and ...

What you need is an Windows in Application Server role. And you're in luck!!!! Having windows 8 means it is at all possible.

try going to settings/network/ tap on your mobile network (in my case it was O2)/ then under access point you see NAME from the dropbox chose: MY OWN SETTINGS (or anything called similar) and into the slot for APN write the APN Name given by the internet provider (in my case with O2 it was simply INTERNET so I would use the same as sort of general APN name) ...

You're making headway. That's great. It may be best if you really treat the changing of the IPv4 address, and the changing of the DHCP settings, as two separate things. When you changed the router's IPv4 address, you succeeded in that step. Good. After changing the IPv4 address, you need to be able to communicate with the router at 192.168.9.1. To do ...

localhost cannot be accessed over a network because the IP [127.0.0.1] is parsed before the NIC.

You can delete the stored profile of every WLAN interface.

You have lots of articles that covers this topic. WiFi Tethering essentially turns your smartphone into a wireless router. When your phone has a data connection, it can share that connection with all of the other devices connected to it. When it doesn’t have a data connection, it still functions as a wireless router – or more accurately, as a switch. Since ...

Here are a couple of suggestions, but as Benedikt pointed out, more info could help us a lot in answering you more accurately (your bandwidth speed (!) / home wifi setup / router model / etc.): If you want everything to stream over WiFi, make sure you have a decent modern WiFi router.
