Find the point of failure by doing smaller tests and expanding out to the full test. First ping self, then the host, then the dns servers, gateway, etc. and then eventually some internet server. Don't assume dns works unless you tested it. Also don't assume ping isn't blocked. Ping via IP if dns doesn't work. Or use curl or a web browser to test if ping ...

It depends on power supply, modern power supplies (usually) work on fast switching mode (they transform incoming power to high frequencies, tens or hundreds of kHz, then this signal filtered out to produce direct current). Internal driver regulates duty cycle of high frequency signal depending on output voltage, if you disconnected adapter, energy ...

"should I be concerned some damage was done and therefore replace the unit?" Probably not. Its worth keeping in mind if there's issues but chances are unless there was an actual power surge it should be fine. If there was, the magic smoke might have escaped and you should be able to smell it. Power cycling itself is less an issue as transient currents ...

Update your browser time to time. If you continue to use an old version of a browser, you'll eventually begin to notice that your Internet seems slower, since the old browser isn't equipped to handle new content. Solve the problem by updating to a current browser. If you are using internet browser then download the latest version. Start by deleting your ...

While your router (TP-LINK Archer C7 AC1750) does not support QOS, it supports bandwidth control which allows you to specify per device limits that could allow you to limit your sister's connection speed.

In case anyone is here looking for the solution to the same problem, I found someone who seems to know what they're talking about giving you a fairly easy to understand rundown of what settings you need. One thing they haven't mentioned, probably because it should be pretty obvious (though it wasn't necessarily to me) is that the router should be in wireless ...

Well, it turned out to be... the IPv6 connection. My router was configured to provide both IPv4 and IPv6 connections through my Italian provider (TIM.it). Setting it to enable just the IPv4 connection solved the problem! Apparently there is a temporary problem with IPv6 network, but all of my Windows devices always used IPv4 (or have the ability to switch ...

Localhost is accessable even if the firewall is active on your PC blocking all incoming connections from your smartphone. So deactivate the firewall to test at first.

Localhost don't need wi-fi (It's not even sending the data out to the network). If you cut the internet the localhost will still be there. As far as I know you cannot access to your localhost from another device. 192.168 etc. is your local network not your localhost.

Not to be presumptuous but are you sure you need a 2 mile radius? (if you do that's okay but then more information about what data you need to transmit, how often, and how much.) WiFi probably isn't the best answer if all you need is 20kb/s for frequent but small amounts of data, but as you said wlan not WiFi, I'll assume that you knew that) To clarify, ...

You will need high-gain antennas, probably directional antennas, to boost WiFi range that much. You should be able to find some to suit your needs that are compatible with whatever WAP you go with (search Google, Amazon, wherever), and keep in mind that you will probably need high-gain antennas on the client devices as well, since your typical client device ...

I'm currently on a similar situation, after some research, the best approaches I have seen so far are zeroshell https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/141349-zeroshell-foss-networking-appliance and http://speedify.com/. I'm doing this because I live on a rural area where only mobile internet is available and I run a small business, so I need a channel to ...

Ubiquiti products run regular Wi-Fi with some extensions. Any standard Wi-Fi client device should work, after you turn off "AirMAX" (their proprietary TDMA mode) in the AP's control panel. (Also, make sure to only choose frequencies corresponding to standard Wi-Fi channels, since at least their 5 GHz devices offer many choices in between.) That said, even ...

Most wired networks use Ethernet cables to transfer data between connected PCs. In a small wired network, a single router may be used to connect all the computers. Larger networks often involve multiple routers or switches that connect to each other. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) consist of mesh routers that collect and forward the traffic ...

One way is command line as already mentioned in the above answer. Second way that I'm mentioning here is little bit for users who have limited or almost no technical knowledge or administrative access. Follow these steps to change priority of network. Forget all the Wifi Networks - You can easily forget Wifi Network by LEFT clicking on Wifi Connection ...

I assume other wireless devices are able to connect to the router and the internet. Is it possible that you have MAC filtering enabled on the router? Have you looked at your router log to see if the device is trying to connect and if so what the result is?

I would say that it is highly unlikely that, for a device drawing up to 1.5A at 12V, an AC adapter capable of delivering only 0.6A at 9V would be sufficient. Based on the numbers you gave, the WDS-3600 needs up to 1.5A × 12V = 18W of power. The AC adapter you got with it can deliver a maximum of 0.6A × 9V = 5.4W, or about one third of what the router is ...

There is a setting in the registry that will set the Ethernet connection as metered. The setting is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost Setting it to 2 will make the connection metered. (taken from tenforums.com)

This article at VMWare support site says: By default, the VMnet0 virtual network is set up in bridged mode and bridges to one of the active Ethernet adapters on the host computer. The choice of which adapter it uses is arbitrary. You can restrict the range of choices using options on the Automatic Bridging tab. Thus, you need to pick your wlan ...

I have experienced this issue and none of the suggestions around on the web helped. Mostly two things are suggested that actually do not make much sense, but it worked for someone at somepoint (even if none of them solved my problem): In this specific order, go to the adapter settings, first disable the bridge, then remove it (can be found in multiple ...

It's possible. But why would you buy an adapter, when you can get high quality USB wireless dongles on Ebay for less than $10??? That card you have is huge, and over time it will be more of a hassle to keep that thing out-of-the-way than to just replace it -- especially if the adapter you purchased doesn't fully enclose the card. Keep it simple!

In theory, yes. Ive never seen them used, but there are mini-PCIe to USB adapters.

You can try to connect the Wifi with your Windows PC. And if you have windows 7 or above you can share the wifi from your windows with a "hostednetwork". This will create a new Hotspot an your WindowsPC, and you can connect your Mac to this Hotspot. Try these commands, this will create a new Hotspot on you WindowsPC: netsh wlan set hostednetwork ...

When you run wash -i wlan0mon there will be a list of routers which are vulnerable to reaver. Does the router you re trying against show up in wash? If so what is the strength? I found personally that this happens when I am out of range to my router. If this is your router you are trying this against try putting it next to your antenna, if not then get ...

No this is just switching channels in order to match the WAP channel. Once it does that it will continuously try to authenticate via WPS until it gets it. Meaning if they do not have WPS turned on then this will not work. You may be better off going with a dictionary hack. Remember to only do this on your own test network for penetration purposes. It is ...

Do your wireless chipset and drivers support monitor mode? You can check with this command: iw [your-wifi-adaptor-eg-phy0] info or this iw list if you're unsure. Posting that info will help. Here's an example of a snippet from my output: Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * AP * AP/VLAN * WDS ...

Follow the second link in your question. Create the file as, for example, proxy.pac. Save it to your hard drive on the root of c:. In internet explorer's internet options-> connections-> advanced-> automatic configuration script, type file://c:/proxy.pac, then ok your way out.

Latency problems on home Internet connections usually aren't due to a lack of priority, they're usually due to crappy modems/routers/gateways/APs that, in a misguided effort to never drop a packet, allow their buffer queues to become bloated and stay bloated, which does a double-whammy of adding latency while at the same time breaking TCP's congestion ...

This is an example that I was working some months ago. I think it works fine. The program resets the antena, then sets the working antenna and then works as a real time inventory. If you know some about arduino you can read in the code. (It has some spanish comments, 'cause I am in Mexico) #include <SPI.h> #include <SD.h> File myFile; byte ...

As you can see, your server has gotten no local IP. This can be a DHCP problem; I assume you are using a router which serves the DHCP functionality. Try running dhclient <interface name> -v and see if your server is able to obtain an IP address.

The short answer is "don't install two identical WiFi cards". ;) Either the card's driver or ndis.sys (which is roughly "the glue between all other networking components" in Windows) may have a hidden assumption in it that there is only one WiFi card, so it gets into trouble when you disable it "again". (It does simplify driver design if you assume you will ...

I would say yes, use different SSID's to differentiate. You don't want your own system to bounce between bands. Plus if you are like me and have an access point, you will have nothing but headaches trying to diagnose issues when they arise. I have found that the primary router output and access point interfere between bands if I don't isolate 2.5GHz and ...

If you're using WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK with a passphrase, the passphrase is mixed with the SSID and run through a function called PBKDF2 to generate the actual PSK. So unless you're passing the raw PSK (64 hexadecimal digits) to your software, it can't derive the PSK unless it knows the SSID. I suppose if your software has the smarts to look up the SSID ...

When all else fails troubleshooting a network issue, you can always remove and re-add the network adapter. Press Win+X, select Device Manager. Open up Network Adapters and right-click your network adapter and select Uninstall. Since you said you have VMWare, I would uninstall those virtual adapters as well, as well as any other virtual adapters tied to ...

I had similar situation where the network drivers and the hardware were fine (Device Manager listed all network adapters and Linux used the network just fine, but there was no network in Windows 10 and no Network Connections in network settings). My guess is that I had Cisco AnyConnect VPN installed in Windows 8.1 and then upgraded to Windows 10 where it all ...

The term you're looking for, that you want to search for, is "captive portal". Once you have an AP that supports captive portal, you'll be able to configure it to redirect all new client devices' traffic at your HTTP server machine. If your current AP doesn't support captive portal, either buy one that does, or see if there's an aftermarket firmware distro ...
