Look like Huawei HG530 have one antenna 802.11n radio with 40 MHz band support. So it limited to rate 150 Mbit/s =~ 14 MB/s in ideal conditions. In noisy environment with many other AP 1,2 MB/s look real. Look like z510 use Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 which support MIMO 2x2 Switching to MIMO 2x2 router (or AP) must double your speed, if wireless is ...

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 ...

If you connect a LAN port on the first router to a LAN port on the second router with a crossover cable, it should put both switches in the routers on the same network and accomplish exactly what you want. It may work with a regular straight-through cable, too, so try that before you crimp/buy a new crossover cable. Just make sure you disable DHCP on the ...

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). ...

Something went wrong during the standard reset procedure. You can try to connect to your router by typing it's ip in your browser's address bar. The ip of the router is your default gateway in your network connection. You can find it in your network connection details. If this fails you can try and do the so called 30/30/30 reset. This will erase all data in ...

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.

I contacted Netgear support. You cannot turn off WPS, but only disable the pin when Smart Connect is off.

Yes, it's possible to do that. Just follow these steps. Go onto the setting/setup page of your routers and where it shows "enable DHCP server" uncheck that, which will disable the DHCP server. And then you can use your routers as normal access points.

I know you posted this a while ago, but I had the exact same issue - Acer Aspire v15 Nitro with Win 10 connecting to a Fritzbox. After playing around for a while, I found simply downgrading the driver was what fixed it for me. I had driver version 4.0.something with a later date than the version I installed - 10.0.0.62, but it works so much better. I'm ...

But I would like to know, technically is it possible to connect new router directly to the fiber modem? (my fiber modem has extra RJ45 ports) Yes, your modem seems to be a router as well. If you look at the IP address assigned to your router, if it's not your public IP address, (such as: 10.X.X.X, 192.168.X.X, or 172.16-32.X.X), then you can simply hook ...

The answer is yes, sometimes. Think of the fibre cable as a virtual ethernet cable - from what you have described (and it would be a common setup), thats how its behaving. The question is then "What is the Ethernet cable doing?" It MIGHT be simply acting as an ethernet cable - in which case you simply need to clone the MAC address of the device its ...

If you have reset your device to factory defaults then the username and password should be on the back of the device, if you know the make/model of the device you can also go to this website and lookup the default username and password for your default. Some of them most common ones are admin , blank admin , admin admin , password admin , root root , root

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 ...

I'd start from ground zero - except the topmost router. leave only the topmost router, all the rest turn off, make sure it works as it should with a notebook - both wi-fi and cable configure the topmost router dhcp, so the ip range should start let's say at least with 192.168.0.10 connect a notebook to a secondary router via cable, configure it to the same ...

Well, I figured it out, and beware anyone else buying a Netgear wifi router (I was replacing an Asus)! It ignored the presence of an esisting DHCP server when it powered up, and bestowed upon itself the same .1 local address (and announced itself as a new DHCP server too). That's why I could not find it in the network: it did't have a new address. But ...

Turn off the Router. Bare with me. Your consumer "Router" is not a router at all. It is in fact 3 devices in one.

The chances are you want to use one of your ...

Looking at that raw packet screenshot, your packets look to have essentially no payload. I imagine that your PC is sending an enormous amount of tiny packets which is crippling your network devices and capping out at 4mbps. You should send packets with a real TCP/UDP payload to accurately measure network throughput. I realise you have have specific ...

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 ...

Without knowing the speed you're supposed to be getting from your ISP, and a few other factors, some of this is guess work. I'm going to assume that you're paying for service that is over 100Mbps. If you do, then it's easy to explain why your routers are all slow. Their WAN ports are all standard 10/100Mbps, and if your service is over 100Mbps, you won't ...

Same problem with a new Netgear WNR2000v5. Turn on wi-fi on my Galaxy S7 and connect to wi-fi network, no internet, wired and wireless. Turn off wi-fi on the S7, all other devices work. I enabled guest network. Now the S7 is the only device connected to the guest wi-fi network. Everything is working now.

Problem solved, it was a power managment settings. Anyone experiencing same issues, try going to Control Panel -> Power managment -> schema settings (for the one selected) -> Advanced settings -> Wireless adapter and change it to maximum performance. I got localized windows so the path might not match exactly.

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 ...

From a PC connected to the LAN port(s) of the router, or connected to an ethernet switch that also connects to the router, or connected to the WiFi access point in your router, you should be able to open a web-browser and in the address bar enter a URL formed from the LAN-side IP-address of the router. For example: http://192.168.1.254/ If you do not ...

by 'see' I mean that I'm able to use resources of that computer, get files for example Then it is work for firewall, not for routing engine (software, not to be confused with the router as equipment). So you have to check firewall on your router (device) - and if it isn't capable to do the job either replace software (like mentioned DD-WRT) or the device ...

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 ...

I had the same problem, my wife's Samsung S4 was taking down the network. Several other devices connected without issue including my cell phone, but for some reason her phone crashed the network when she turned Wi-Fi on and connected to the network. We tried many things which did not work, and in our case the solution was to create a Guest Zone on the router ...

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 ...

It was not stated clearly enough, but I assume the question is how to monitor or limit the access to router configuration, not to Wi-Fi. Is any of this possible? Yes, in general. I guess tricks like these may be easier with alternative firmware (like dd-wrt, OpenWRT -- I have some experience with the latter) than with the original one. With alternative ...

Machines connected over WiFi and Ethernet can communicate with each other if the IGMP Proxy is disabled. The IGMP Proxy can be disabled from http://192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active_page=6059 (assuming the router's IP address is 192.168.1.1).

I can answer your latter question about Git-like passwordless public key authentication. Many Wi-Fi access points (wireless routers) support IEEE 802.1X authentication, often as part of a bigger set of security protocols known as WPA2 Enterprise. 802.1X allows unique per-user login credentials. Typically these credentials are checked by a separate ...
