You know how many APs are on each of those channels, but you don't know how much traffic each one is sending/receiving (an idle AP doesn't use much airtime), and you don't know what non-802.11 interference might be on those channels. If the powerful AP is idle, and the less powerful APs on the other channels are really busy, then it would be be better to ...

When you reset a device to its standard, the default username and password will be used. This can be admin / admin, admin / , admin / password or any combination. The best thing to do is look for the model and make of the device, and google for that + default password. Also, if you have the booklet, it will also mention what the default username and ...

It sounds to me like you're trying to access the WAN port of the router. Plug into one of the LAN ports, and disconnect it from your other network (there will likely be overlap on the 192.168.1.0/24 network, and the less confuision the better). I just looked at a picture of your device, and the ports on the LAN side are labeled "Ethernet." Any one of those ...

If you truly have a single AP, it operates on a single radio channel, so if you connect to it with two separate cards from the same machine, they will both be splitting time on the same channel, so they will not get better speeds than a single card. If your AP is a "simultaneous dual-band" (SDB) model, then it's technically two APs in one box, and if you ...

As a general practice, it is good if you use original sources (author's repositories). The github link you provided isn't the original link. After much googling I couldn't find the original link, the author's web page seems to be down (Here is the web-archive link). I then looked for mdk3 in Kali Linux's repositories (Kali Linux is successor to backtrack). ...

The only way to connect the printer is via WPS I do not think that is true. I owned several HP Wi-Fi enabled printers and I'm sure all of them provide the ability to manually input WPA2 credentials. Some can be done through built-in touch screen interface, some others must be done with a PC connected to printer through USB cable. This is the link to HP ...

Yes, that should work – some Wi-Fi APs can work in client (station) mode, although I've seen it more often in dedicated APs ("range extenders") than in combo "wireless routers". Though OpenWRT should allow it in a wi-fi router as well. (I've once used a spare laptop this way.) Though, as mentioned in comments, this will only give you a private LAN, but not ...

You are using WiFi, and WiFi have different limits depending on what your router and wifi card are capable of. The following will take in mind that you will use consumer-grade hardware in a house environment where conditions are optimal (not much interference from signal degration through objects) 2.4Ghz band is limited to about 40mbps in optimal ...

Instead of connecting two routers to the modem, it would probably work better to configure one of the routers as an access point and joining them on the LAN. This is device-specific, but usually involves turning off DHCP and hooking the access point to the LAN ports on the main router. (The connection is on the LAN side.) Here's a generic description. I've ...

There could be several cases here. Assuming that network 10.20.30.X has mask of 255.255.255.0 and the network between the modem and router also has 255.255.255.0 netmask, then if no other restrictions take place you should be able to reach the modem configuration panel trough your web browser just by typing it's ip. But if the modem has been given to you by ...

Your problem is that you have connected your VDSL modem to WAN port. Connect it to a normal LAN port and give it an IP address from your LAN range 10.20.30.0/255.255.255.0, e.g. 10.20.30.2. Also change your router to AP mode see https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1005259. That would work for you, unless you need to use some special features of the router like ...

What you will have to look for: IPs associated to ports of the router itself: These settings should help you set your modem to another IP Routing rules: Defines what IPs your computer will ask for help to reach an IP on another network. For instance, use 10.20.30.1 to reach 10.20.31.0/24. If you can't change your modem's IP, you will need to add a rule ...

Your have three options: Change the mode of your modern to router mode if it supports. Connect to the modern directly with your computer Disable the PPPoE on the router and configure 10.20.31.10/24 on the WAN port. Meanwhile, you will lost the internet connection. Actually, your problem is that the WAN port has an internet IP address and the modern has a ...

The problem is that you do not have a DHCP server connected to the network and the AP is taking the one IP address you are allotted by your ISP. That is why your computer is complaining that it cannot obtain an address. Normally, one's router would act as a separate DHCP server, but since you do not have a router and your AP cannot act as a DHCP server, ...

Assuming you are using TPLINK-AC1750 RE450 Wifi Range Extender, it sounds like you have it configured in the wrong operational mode. You want it to be in 'access' point mode. From the manufacturer's documentation: 4.2. Transform Your Existing Wired Network to a Wireless One The extender can work as an access point, transforming your existing wired ...
