Who expects radios of any sort to work without antennas attached? A better question might be why Wi-Fi worked at all in that state. Wi-Fi uses a lot more transmit power, so it's better able to make up for the extreme attenuation that comes from not having any antenna connected. Not only does Bluetooth use a lot less power, but modern Bluetooth audio uses all ...

The wireless AP is handling a LAN: it's working at layer 2. I'll simplify and consider wireless frames are like Ethernet frames (which is almost true when considering an Access Point, even if not really: Four layer-2 addresses in 802.11 frame header ). Setting ap_isolate=1 prevents frames to be bridged at a low level in the AP driver. Instead these frames ...

There are multiple elements in how an OS decides what to do. The simplest overview is that if there are multiple devices a packet can be sent via the OS is programmed with an order of preference based on the (theoretical not actual tested for this pc) expected performance of the Interface. This typically prefers ethernet over wifi, and the first device in ...

Auto usually means on a reboot the AP will scan the local environment for interference and move to the channel that it detects will be the clearest from neighboring interference. These algorithm's used in consumer routers for channel selection don't usually work very well. For permanent links like bridges it should be disabled. Not sure where you are living ...

Simply run this command: systemctl --now enable iwd

As of build 19042.1052, this is working again with no changes from my end. I am unsure as to the actual cause, but since I can no longer reproduce it, further troubleshooting seems moot.

From the T440S Hardware Maintenance Manual. T440S HMM The steps below give you the color codes for the wires I think from your description that you should be OK ========= 1040 Wireless LAN card (correction to this post) When installing: Plug the gray cable into the connector labeled MAIN or 1 on the card Plug the black cable into the connector labeled AUX or ...

In general, rely on the integrity of the applications you've installed (and on keeping your machine physically safe from installation of malware, e.g., while traveling). It is possible for an application, such as Nirsoft's WiFi Key View, to read the cached passwords in Windows. Before installing an application, check it with a few anti-malware tools, such as ...

Yes, this can be done. At an Admin Command Prompt, type: Command Prompt: netsh wlan show profile name="Profile Name" key=clear to see password and you can get the WiFi password. It depends on the attacking program, but the information is there if the program has the capacity. So, probably you are OK, but be careful what is installed. I have ...

You router's WAN IP is 10.128.40.X. Unfortunately 10.0.0.0/8 ("10.xxx.xxx.xxx") is a private IP range and therefore your IP belongs to your ISPs carrier-grade NAT (CGN) - it's not a public IP. You can check this yourself by testing if your router's WAN IP matches you public IP (whatsmyip.com etc.). If not you are behind a carrier grade NAT. If so, ...

I assume you have a router with one WAN port, several LAN ports and WiFi capability. And there is no need to connect to this app from Internet. You just connect your laptop to any LAN ports, configure DHCP server inside your Netgear router (otherwise you'll have to correctly assign ip addresses from the same subnet for your laptop and your phone). This way ...

Send them to the address? Yes, that's called DNS, and it really works with the same kind of domain names that you already have elsewhere. Send them to the address:port? No, there's nothing for that. Your server will always need to listen on port 80 for HTTP – use a reverse proxy to forward the requests to Node or such. I personally own many internet servers ...

Yes, you can do this. I truly recommend Wired Printers (Ethernet) but Wireless Printers will work for sure. Set up the Printer, set the Network settings to be a Static IP on the router (can be wireless). Set all the settings: IP, Subnet Mask (255.255.255.255) and Gateway (the router local IP address). Save those settings. Restart the Printer and you ...

The TD-W8960N is only an ADSL modem – it literally does not have the hardware that could understand or generate VDSL signals. Many ISPs provide "VDSL" connections that actually support both VDSL and ADSL modems, so the TD-W8960N should still work with such a connection – but only in ADSL2+ mode and ADSL2+ speeds.

What you want is to have a second WiFi point at the other end of your house. What you need to do is: Go buy a 100ft CAT6 cable, see Amazon or similar. Plug one end of your cable into the back of your existing WiFi router (there should be 4). Feed your cable to the other end of your house. Think of a way to do this neatly or ask someone who is handy to help. ...

You are trying to solve the wrong problem. Technically you can have 2 connections + 2 routers and have them work (just use different SSIDs/AP names and frequencies), but in this case "anything an ISP can do you can do too". The obvious answer would be to get someone in to run a cable from the router to the other side of the house and plug in an AP ...
