You need to ensure the following: You need to run NAT (Network address Translation) on Computer A on the WIFI interface - presumably you would use "connection sharing" in Windows. You would treat your WIFI router as an Access Point + Switch - you want to disable DHCP on it as Computer A would be doing the connection sharing. You would also want to ensure ...

What you are talking about is a Wireless Broadband or a Fixed Wireless and also known as Wireless mesh network . Also it is called a point-to-multipoint network. Wireless Broadband Network A term you may recognize in association with wireless broadband internet service includes wireless network. A wireless network is a single broadband internet ...

Try manually adding a wireless profile with the wireless settings from the router. Quite often the wireless wizard in windows fails to detect the encryption, so manually adding a wireless profile gets around this.

Okay, I did a bit of research, and I know what's wrong here. Apple does not allow 40 Mhz or "bonded channel" mode in 2.4 Ghz mode in their devices. So even if one's router is capable of 40 Mhz mode in 2.4 Ghz, an Apple device will only use half of that (they do support 40 Mhz in 5 Ghz mode though). What this means is that whatever bandwidth your router is ...

Try changing the bandwidth of your signal from 20 to 40mhz. You can tell us the models of your phone and laptop if you can't find out if they support 802.11n, but why wouldn't they? My luggable laptop is getting to be a legacy item, yet it has n.

It could be a number of things - the best guess being interference from other AP's your phone can hear in the bedroom, but not in the living room. If one of your devices runs android, Download "Wifi Analyser" and have a look at the various networks available in each location and their strengths to test this theory, and consider changing the AP frequency or ...

First, what brand are your laptop and phone? Apple products are known to be bandwidth hogs. You could try to change the channel and or frequency of the WiFi. And it is possible that something in that room could be causing interference and distorting the signal.

[LAN access from remote] is triggered anytime an external connection is routed into the internal network via a forwarded port. This can be either an explicit (ie: a specific port or range of ports set with port forwarding/port triggering) or automatic (ie: UPNP) route. Most of the time, this message indicates success, but if you have invalid port forwarding ...

Yes, you can set up network drives as target, check this microsoft article, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/set-drive-file-history It is mandatory to use external drive for the target. I believe you would like to know about the Windows Image Backup. Yes, full disk backups are supported in Windows8. To backup, open the "Control Panel -> ...

I Found this on another forum regarding the Belkin N600. I tried it and it made a huge difference.Try disabling the Intellistream feature. Media Features > Intellistream > disable > apply. Intellistream tries to hold bandwidth for each device but in a typical family household this means that a portion of the bandwidth is sitting idle. I just disabled mine ...

Check DNS settings on the router, modem and other devices. Also consider a factory reset, rather than just a reboot - the reset will completely clear all settings. If you are using default (ISP-assigned) DNS servers, consider changing them to an alternative, such as Google's 8.8.8.8 - if you observe this behaviour stopping, consider checking with other ...

From the point of view of your apartment's router, your router is just another device connecting to the network. Since you control your personal router, you can then connect as many devices as you like (and your router supports). Your router will do all the network address translation on your local area network, so it will make no difference to your ...

You want the upstairs router to actually act as just a bridge/switch, not really a router/gateway. On the upstairs router, disable NAT and DHCP service so that it just bridges between WAN and LAN. If it doesn't have an option for this, then take the Ethernet cable that's in its WAN port (i.e. the cable that goes downstairs) and move it to one of its LAN ...

Although 802.11ac is a 5GHz-only technology, I have yet to see an 802.11ac router that only supports 5GHz. All the 802.11ac routers on the market are simultaneous dual-band, so they do a/n/ac in 5GHz at the same time as b/g/n in 2.4GHz. So go ahead and buy a simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac router, and your 802.11g NIC will see the router's 2.4GHz b/g/n ...

According to its author, the customized version of AsusWRT named AsusWRT-Merlin supports SSH in the form of dropbear. Search for "SSHD" in this README. Check out the Github website and build your own or follow the download link at the bottom. Also note: AsusWRT was originally a fork of Tomato. It diverged quite a lot since then, but if you only need a ...

This page (Option Three) helped me solve my issue. In Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles. I deleted the profiles for "[SSID]" and "[SSID] 2". Rebooted and connected to router. Problem solved.

Found on another site, hope it works. Go to control panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center In the section where it says “View your active networks” click on the house icon (this opens the “Set Network Properties” dialogue. Click on “Merge or delete network locations” (this displays all the networks you have connected to) You can select ...

You might be able to do it, but even if you do, it might not work very well. To understand why, you'll need to understand a little about routing. The purpose of a router is to move packets along the proper links, to get them closer to their destinations. But there are different types of routers that play different roles. There are the backbone routers, for ...

(from using my tethered smart phone) I don't know the specs of your phone, so I'm going out on a bit of a limb, but I'd think it'd be easier to use your phone to broadcast as a wireless AP, than to configure those services on your PC. Android, for instance, has wifi AP tether apps that will broadcast an SSID with configurable options. I use one called ...

It's that simple. A separate router for the APs will make the two networks completely segregated. More advanced SMB and enterprise routers can do this from one device, but consumer grade equipment usually doesn't support the VLANs necessary to pull that off.

You can think of it this way. 100% of the time is available. If a 300Mbps link is transferring 150Mbps, it's in use half the time, leaving half the time available for other connections. But I should warn you that advertised speeds are maximum links speeds. Real world link speeds are much lower. In addition, the bandwidth has to be divided between inbound ...

802.11ac typically carries 1300 Mbps on each 5 GHz radio so you should not hit a threshold at only 300Mpbs, that assuming you meant 300mbps, not 300 MBps

I can't call this an answer, but maybe my adventures will help you. I had precisely this same problem. They've replaced my wiring outside and I've replaced it inside to the point of having only a single 10 foot run. The issue you're having is likely exterior. Try the follwoing: Post on their wall on facebook. (this got me some attention!) Get it down to ...
