My experience is that you should not give the different bands the same SSIDs unless you have two dual band routers and set each router with one particular channel for each band with the same name. Example below: router 1: 2.4ghz TwoFourG set to channel 1 5.0ghz FiveOh set to channel auto *if in complex put next to end of home and ...

Speaking as a wireless network admin, the short course on 2.4: In most of the world, there are only 3 2.4 GHz channels you should ever use: 1, 6, 11 All the rest of them overlap - the idea that adjacent channels should not interfere with each other is broken in the 2.4 spectrum - accept it and move on. There are only 3, and they are called 1, 6 and 11. ...

There are multiple things that can happen here: Hidden Node Problem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidden_node_problem IEEE 802.11n 40 MHz channel switching to 20 MHz: Newer WiFi APs support 40 MHz channels and use them. Which is no problem as long as no data flows. When data flows and other nodes also use the same channels the AP might decide to switch ...

I have a computer where the WLAN says limited connectivity. ... The problems seemed to start when I installed npcap or tried to. I see npcap loopback adaptor listed. (there's a hint there). I'm positive this is a problem with Npcap. I'm not sure if it happens on every machine, but it has happened to 3 entirely different Windows 7 laptops I ...

The way u have the hub connected it is doing nothing. if the inet connection you have only has 1 external IP address (no DHCP) I think I would have set it up this way: a router (where A is) with 5 (or more) ports connected to the internet. You could use a one port to a 4 or 5 port hub. All other routers connected to the main router or hub. Router A must be ...

It turned out only the internet service provider (Ziggo) was able to turn off the wireless for me remotely. I guess they put custom firmware on their modem routers to prevent customers from being… difficult? I imagine they have more problems with people complaining about a lack of wifi, than people wanting it gone.

Called Virgin Media (150 from landline) and they upgraded my superhub3 firmware to 9.1.88T. Now both Chromecast v1 and v2 are working fine.

If all you're trying to do is get an Ethernet-only box connected into a wireless network, then yes, this can work. In contrast, if you wanted the Linux box to see this device as if it were a locally connected WLAN card and be able to configure it from the normal WLAN tools and run Wi-Fi network scanners and run 802.11 monitor mode packet captures and ...

Using RT-N12 D1 in client mode with my laptop connected via ethernet cable right now. I get a stronger signal from distant routers using repeater mode, but WPA seems broken as does MAC filtering (in repeater mode), so I'm having relatively good experiences in client mode as a compromise, for security reasons.

cheapest fix - use your cable router as a modem, then buy a router that supports mirroring to broadcast your wifi. (*shut off wifi on the cable modem and hard wire the new router to it for internet - that way all wireless traffic gets captured.) You can then pick any connected device as the target of your mirror - pick one with decent storage and remember ...

What I would do is to let the ISP router as it is, without altering its configuration and then run the three Ethernet cables from each port of the ISP router to every single router BUT connecting the cable to a switch port -not to the WAN port, of each router. On each router (not the ISP) I would deactivate the DCHP server. With this scenario you are to get ...

Unless you force your client device to choose a specific SSID, it will usually choose the one with the strongest received radio signal. So, if you use the same SSID for both 2.4G and 5G, more than likely the 2.4G radio, which has a longer range and passes through walls and floors better, will be the stronger signal. I set up separate SSIDs with names that ...

Post please the router model that your ISP gave you, probably there is a way to alter the settings / get into the admin aprt ( routerpwn.com ). The main router - ISP - is the one with the DHCP server so if you put another one after that in Gateway mode it will take IP from the -ISP- router ( let's say 192.168.1.xxx ) and NAT the traffic thru there, so just ...

Because ping packets need to do this. host1 > router | router > host1. host1 > router | router > host2 | host2 > router | router > host1. If you test it will cable you will get nearly 1ms, but in wireless networking you have got a lot of variables: signal mode, strenght, latency, free bandwith, etc. And yes, how router manage Wi-Fi does the trick. Is not ...
