I will assume your second laptop's OS is Windows. You should start a Command Prompt and check your connectivity using ping 8.8.8.8 -t. If everything is smooth aka no packet loss, you should go further with debugging: check DNS settings on your browser and laptop. To do so you should first check the C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\etc\hosts file and see if there ...

There are some tricks that you can try: You can use Device Manager to change the power management settings for a network adapter. To disable this setting in Device Manager, expand Network Adapters, right-click the adapter, click Properties, click the Power Management tab, and then clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box....

Getting a better router/access point setup will help your speed if the issue is with your LAN (and from what you describe it is), but it will not allow you go faster then 3mbps (ie about 300kbyte per second). Range extenders are generally a bad idea as they greatly reduce the available bandwidth. The "correct" solution is to cable multiple access points ...

Not sure if it belongs here, but might be really useful for others: I came across this question multiple times, so I wrote a small open-source .NET tool for it. Drag & drop networks in order, set autoconnect and autoswitch (autoswitch determines if the netwerk can be disconnected in order to connect to a better alternative). It's a front-end for the ...

I am using a TP-Link TL-R480T+ Broadband router with load balance. I use it to split up different computers and services on the two existing internet connections, which clearly eases the load. What does not work, is to combine the two connections to one, if you use a "point-to-point" connection, like loading web pages or accessing FTP. On the other hand you ...

Some wireless HID devices (as Logitech) frequently come with an extended cord ~2m long, with filters for only FS operation for USB (USB RF dongles are usually FS-devices). When placing the HID transceiver apart from laptop, it will separate WiFi and mouse antennas, and your setup might start working. Also please be aware that 2.4GHz HID devices might ...

I agree with Spiff's answer - but there may be a solution Have you tried waiting and letting the mouse and receiver (adapter) bind? It's likely that when you power the receiver on the laptop side, it goes into a bind mode and screams out for all to hear, until it finds a mouse. If it manages to find a mouse, interference may calm down enough for you to ...

That's probably a 2.4GHz wireless mouse and you're probably using 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, so your mouse is probably interfering with your Wi-Fi signals. Try changing your TP-Link router's channel and the mouse system's channel so they don't overlap. Consider switching to 5GHz Wi-Fi or a wired USB mouse.

It turns out this problem was caused by having the Windows 10 feature "Random hardware addresses" enabled. Disabling this feature resolved the issue.

if you want dnsmasq to serve IP addresses from the same subnet to different interfaces you can edit the interfaces declaration in the dnsmasq.conf look under interfaces in the man page here. There is also another way I would recommend doing over the dnsmasq method. You can simply bridge the WLAN and LAN in your interfaces conf and then set the bridge name ...

This sounds like a problem with reverse path filtering. Edit (as sudo) the file /etc/sysctl.conf on the Debian machine, make sure to have the two lines as follows: net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter=0 net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter=0 save, reboot the machine, see whether you still have the problems in question. If not, then the easiest way to solve would be to ...

isc-dhcp-client should set name servers automatically (by overriding /etc/resolv.conf ). Try the following: Set the line iface wlan0 inet manual in /etc/network/interfaces to iface wlan0 inet dhcp Verify that domain-name-servers is in the request line in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf.

This to me sounds like more of a virus (malware), I'd run your anti-virus protection and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. If it finds nothing, there are two other things I can think of... Make sure your computer's clock is set to your timezone and that's it's got the right time. Reset your Internet.

Just get your ISP to forward the port to a static or reserved IP in your LAN and make sure your camera has that IP - a static or reserved address will always be given to the same device. It will be much simpler than trying to find a much more complicated method that your device probably doesn't support or will mean you installing additional hardware (...

If you ISP supports IPv6 then you might be able to connect your phone to an IPv6 broker and therefor bypass the router. If they don't then you are left with VPN option, then again you can go two ways. Setup up a VPN server at home and have you ISP do the port forwarding to allow you to connect the phone to VPN. (This is only good if your ISP provides ...

Try wireshark,its a packet sniffer. You can also try Cain & Abel if you want additional functionality. C&A will generate a firewall warning though.

According to http://www.manualslib.com/manual/864771/D-Link-Dir-803.html?page=102 the router has the ability to send the syslog to an external device that is running a syslog utility that can be used to store every request into a file or database - allowing you to keep much more of the logs. Syslog is real-time so you'll want the "database" server to be on ...

Unfortunately, this router has only 2mb flash so cannot run dd-wrt which prefers the minimum flash of 4mb.

Please advise your printer model. It is possible to connect the printer via a USB port on the router, but that depends to a large extent on the printer model. It may not work with some (cheaper) printer models. In the meantime, start by reading this page: http://www.tp-link.com/en/faq-415.html

Hmm I am not quite sure about your question, are you trying to connect to the printer through the internet? If you are talking about a local environment I don't think you have to pay for a static IP. If it is indeed a local network, the idea I have in mind is to connect the printer using a LAN cable to the router and assign an IP to the printer (e.g. 192....

To scan the status of a range of IP addresses, this is nice and simple: sudo nmap -sn 192.168.1.2-20 Where: -sn: Ping Scan - disable port scan Note: In previous releases of Nmap, -sn was known as -sP.. I did this on Mac OS X (which is based on BSD). I am not sure if the Linux version has any differences.

Using the stock firmware, you cannot have more than one subnet on the device, so there is no way to do what you need if all your devices connect to the router using ethernet. If, however, you want to separate the wireless traffic from the ethernet traffic, you can do so by implementing the Guest Wifi network in the router's configuration. See documentation. ...

My experience with Powerline is that is has horrible latency: 50 packets transmitted, 49 received, 2% packet loss, time 49075ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 23.740/665.342/2039.040/449.964 ms, pipe 3 I am using cheap TP-LINK 100mbps devices. Producer claims 500mbps over powerline, but the devices have 100mpbs Ethernet interfaces.

the address assigned to your adapter "169.254...." is what is known as an auto-config address, and that's what will happen if the adapter is set to get address automatically, and doesn't get any response from a DHCP server. If your other machines are getting IPs OK, and are set to get an IP automatically, then that means a DHCP server is running, so then ...

I had this exact problem with a Dell laptop. The only thing that would work was to assign a fixed IP address and DNS to this machine. Try it with yours. Use OpenDNS at 208.67.222.222 or Google DNS at 8.8.8.8

The wifi driver receives the packets, pass them to the hardware to decrypt it and driver gets the real data packets, and it can read the IP header.

In the Access Point, The channel is set by user interface(such as some HTML thing), then it will be passed to the driver to set the hardware register, the register will make hardware focus on the channel.

No, repeaters (hubs) and bridges (switches) cannot forward any packet (multicast or unicast) back onto the interface it was received on, because it would cause an infinite packet storm.

You cant do what you are wanting to with this router. You would need to install another device behind it - something which can run Dd-WRT or similar.

Assuming you have an "off-the-shelf" home router rather then something serious which allows you a lot of control of the DHCP server, you should be able to find the range of IP's allocated in the router - usually this will be a small subset of the available IP's available for the subnet. You should be able to change this subset, save, restart everything as ...

If you want to get your DHCP server to assign the client another IP, the most reliable way would be to set up a reservation for that client MAC, assigning the new address, and change it each time you want to test. Depending on the client, you'd need to release and renew the lease, on windows that's a simple matter of ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew. ...

As you mentioned a router, if a (long) power off does not clear the DHCP Lease Table probably a reset of the device would (which I would not do - as you will have to setup from scratch). Another way to get a new DHCP address would be to reserve the IP of the device you want to test with a non-existent MAC address. You could also check if you can set the ...

First, you were not likely compromised. As the comments mention, he likely found your Global IP address, and then proceeded to send your modem/router more requests than it could handle (in other words, Denial of Service or Distributed Denial of Service attack). As far as your data, that would depend on the firewall that is set up on your modem/firewall. ...

Your wireless card might be disabled in your BIOS. To enter your BIOS, when the Dell logo appears tap F2 key until the message Entering Setup appears. Look for : Power Management-> Wireless Radio control-> Control WLAN Radio or something along those lines, and make sure it is always on.

I think what you are asking for is not possible, and the batch file is probably a good option. When you set a static IP on your adapter, you are telling it the IP to use. This is in order so that it doesn't have to do discovery to find that out. Without discovery, how is it supposed to notice you plugged it into a different network? This is what DHCP is ...

Your computer does indeed have a hardware button. I think its the same as F9. Just push that button to toggle on/off WiFi and Bluetooth. (if the F-keys are set to be the top most layer you will have to hold down the fn-key while pushing the button.)

The Philips Hue is also a wireless device so it's absolutely possible that it's disrupting the router. You should try setting a different channel for your router which you can set inside your router's control area (i.e. something like 192.168.2.1 from any browser)
