I bought a router with 5G Hz and has three long antennas. Now I have the following: RSSI: -61 Noise: -92 Also I haven't seen any wireless issue for the past few weeks. The point for my situation was: - Use 5GHz channel, which has more vacant channels. - Use a router with good antennas.

After trying many things, including messing up with my wifi router advanced configuration, I've solved this issue by disabling UPnP, DHT, NAT-PMP and LSD on my client (Deluge).

"Cascading" is a non-standard term, so if you find few questions with that in them, it's not a surprise. Using multiple routers (per below, most being used as APs, one as router and AP, is dirt common.) Very likley you have interference between the Access Points (for the sake of my sanity, if not yours, let's call the "part that provides WiFi" the Access ...

This seems like Linux Mint drivers for WLAN is causing the issue, please connect to Internet through LAN and try the following commands on terminal: sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 Please try this and check the status

A range extender can be expected to reduce your bandwith in half. Two range extenders and you have one quarter of the original bandwidth. Usually not a good thing.... Price and range are usually directly related. Pay a lot, and get more. Nothing beats a copper wire. Except perhaps fiber. Your best bet would be to buy a good wireless router ($130??) ...

Yes it is achievable by some routers. Every of these apps, are contacting with some external Servers, these servers are accessible to you by some specific IP Addresses, if from your Firewall option in router (if applicable) you define these IP Addresses in Block List, you can achieve doing this. You can also Block Domain Names. In order to see with which ...

Well, I m definitely not a super user. I solved it eventually by resetting the router(turn off and on again) but I don't understand how this issue was solved. I would be glad if someone could give me an explanation. I would like to be able to reproduce this behavior and to solve it. Edit: I found out that restarting the networking service is not enough for ...

i've DIR-636L and go through this exact problem everyday. I've tried all setting and could not get a fix. Today what I've found is the issue is related to the "time resetting" or time going backwards. If you check the log the message there is a chance of seeing the message daemon.err: mDNSResponder: mDNSPlatformRawTime went backwards by 1253278268 ticks; ...

You have a dumb router ( or actually, it could be your isp ). The problem is known as "buffer bloat". Basically it means the router has gobs of ram and is happy to use it all to queue up packets waiting to be sent. The more packets you queue up, the longer the queue gets, the more time it takes for a packet to make it through the queue. This is ...

The TP-Link router isolates the wifi and any devices connected directly to it from the network on the WAN side of the router. It is like a one way mirror, the devices connected to the router can see the outside, but the outside cannot see in. You might try some port forwarding in the router if you really know what you are doing, but I think this is a very ...

The both Networks 192.168.1.0/24 and 192.168.5.0/24 will be separated. Due to NAT, computers from Internet will have no access to both LANs without port forwarding, and computers in 192.168.1.0/24 will have no access to 192.168.5.0/24 without port forwarding. Computers in 192.168.5.0/24 will have access to 192.168.1.0/24 if they know the IP addresses. So ...

How are your family members connected? WiFi only? Some routers offer you an option to disable WiFi communiciation between connected devices (either for all or specific members), which will no longer allow them to connect or talk to any other device on the local network, but they're able to access the internet/WAN just as usual.

You say this: If I plug a second router with DHCP on and a different subnet, will that separate the networks and keep them from communicating with each other? And say this: I have two D-LINK DIR-655 model C routers and they do not offer VLAN support. First the layout you mention won’t separate the two networks. One device becomes another ...

If I understand your question correctly, you want to use your Tata Photon Wiz Wi-Fi dongle with is a 3G Mi-Fi device with the Netgear N300 router to share the Internet connectivity the Tata Photon Wiz Wi-Fi dongle provides? From what I can see I do not think that is possible. The router itself would need to know how to communicate with the USB Mi-Fi dongle. ...

As LPChip stated, WLAN equipment should use one of channels 1, 6 or 11. Using partially overlapping channels can be even worse for the performance of all wireless stations than setting all stations on the same channel. WLAN nodes operating on the same channel can receive and decode other nodes and participate in the wireless medium access procedure. Each ...

There are more questions about how to improve your wifi signal, so I'm going to only give a short answer, as I currently do not have enough time to look up the other topics. Wifi should be set to channels 1, 6 and 11, because otherwise you will overlap with multiple channels, and as such your reception will suck. Note that with channel 11, you will come in ...

WDS(Wireless Distribution System) is a none standard Extension, Since all vendors have the option to implement it's own version. There will be too many variables to cover to assure unversally stable interoperability between routers using different chips. You might find some way to do this with QoS(Quality of Service) if the routers have chipsets of the same ...

With your setup, you can't do a lot with the settings, other than selecting an unused channel. See Which Wifi Channel should I use? for advice on channel selection - it boils down to trying them all and seeing which works best. It's all dependent on interference. Getting a free channel will boost signal quality more than any other setting (other than Tx ...

What you can use that speed when the 100Mbit cable connection will be a bottleneck? Is my logic wrong somewhere? Your assumption is that the main use of these Wi-Fi routers would be to only access the actual cable data connection. When in many cases, the Wi-Fi connection could—and would—be shared among devices on the local LAN. Meaning if I have a ...

Since this is at a hostel with different users, this could be occurring because as other people sign in, you are being moved to the end of the queue and eventually off the list of users. The wireless router only has so many open accounts at one time. If you go off the list, you might have to login again.

DHCP requests are sent out as broadcast packets that can be heard by any other machine in the same network broadcast domain (i.e. within the same switched segment). Who answeres them is unimportant as long as the right configuration is delivered.

No, your modem has not been hacked. Based of my own experience, if you go to /index.php you will get that index page. If you just go to / then you get a login page. And just for fun, if you go to /styleguide.php you get a nice style guide ;)

Did the same as all the other forums suggested with no result either. Then did the following, which although not ideal finally works so I can stay on the home network more than 15-20 seconds. 1. Reversed the keychain action to allow the network to connect via AirPort and 2. Connected to my network and started using non-Mac software, keeping that software up ...

It's not really all that clear what you're asking - but the Cisco E4200 is already a router & wireless Access Point. The TP-Link wifi adapter doesn't go in the router, it goes in any computer you have which doesn't have built-in wifi. See http://support.linksys.com/en-eu/support/routers/E4200 & ...

This is strange. Even though the only two other Wi-Fi networks in the area are on channel 1 and 6, my network was still overlapping something on channel 11. Maybe not a Wi-Fi network, but god knows what (many other devices use 2.4Ghz not just Wi-Fi). So I set my router on channel 4 (b/g/n), and suddenly my phone had fast Wi-Fi again. But this is still a bit ...

Routers don't deal with WiFi at all; access points do. Your Netgear is one of the "all in one" home Internet gateways that have a router, an Ethernet switch, and a WiFi access point combined into one device. They're made this way for convenience on small networks like home LANs, but it sounds like your office has outgrown that. An access point really works ...

Neither traffic control nor QoS can help here. The earliest you can do something to a packet is when you receive it. And by the time you receive these packets, they've already consumed your bandwidth to your ISP. Consumer Internet access simply cannot handle high-bandwidth and latency-sensitive applications at the same time. You may be able to help by ...

Absolutely, and not hard to do. I purchased an inexpensive ASUS router, set it up as a LAN device off the Actiontec, shut off it's DCHP and set it up as an access point.No loss of Verizon FIOS material, shut off wireless in the Actiontec, or assign it to "the kids"..

Some D-Link routers have a "bug" in their internal software, namely that the internal clock cannot be set to 1/1/2013, or any later date. Instead, the router sets itself to the correct month & day, but to the year '2002'. So, while the router obtains an IP-address from the Internet Service Provider, it waits for half of 12 years (2014 [the current ...

Your statement that all devices have to be wireless is not true. The job of the router that has both wired and wireless connectivity is to allow all connected devices to communicate. This is how the OSI model has come to existence. If your printer is wireless then it'll connect to your router in the same manner your laptops and other wifi enabled devices ...

Yes. It is possible. I understand your topology works like this! Printer(Wireless)-->WLAN Router-->(LAN)Computer! So, the IPs are provided by your Wireless Router. With this, you should be able to print. You can get better help from this doc

You can use a combination of two wireless routers (or one if it supports being in AP and bridge mode, as explained here). One would be in bridge mode and the other would be linked to the router and function as an access point. So you'd have something like: Regular AP ))) Bridge AP-->Regular AP ))) ...sorry about the bad representation, but the ))) ...

On 802.11g (standard 802.11g without frame bursting), even at great signal strength, no noise, always getting the 802.11g max 54 Megabit/sec PHY rate, no contention, and very efficient and well-tuned software, your maximum TCP/IP throughput is likely to be only around 23 Megabit/sec (about 2.7 MebiBytes/sec). If both machines are wireless, on the same AP, ...

I looked up some of the geolocation of those IP addresses: 124.90.57.0 = Hangzhou,Zhejiang Sheng,China,Asia 89.93.100.201 = Marseille,Bouches-du-Rhône,Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur,France,Europe 46.150.97.81 = Donetsk,Donets'ka Oblast',Ukraine,Europe Seems like you are getting pretty random traffic.

Is 192.168.1.2 one of your desktops? Is it configured to be in as the 'DMZ'? If so you are going to get lots of crap thrown at it. This is normal. When you set a host as the DMZ the router is basically going to forward all new incoming connections to that host. If you use the DMZ setting in your router your host better have a properly configured ...
