Wifi Antennas by gargoyle60
I need some advice please? I have a wired router with an attached Wireless Access Point (ZyXEL WAP3205). The WAP is centrally located in a hallway cupboard at a height of approx. 6 feet. It has two of the short standard rubber-duck antennas. I am having some trouble with signal quality inside my home, which is solid brick construction. I have 4 IP cameras, two of which send a clear signal but...

Windows 7 Networking by Jeff Gaines
I have just carried out a clean install of Win 7 x64 and it can't find my Buffalo Terastation - even though I added an entry in hosts to try and help Win7's brain dead networking. I need the NAS to show it in Explorer since that's the only way I can pick the path in various programs (specifically backup apps ATM). I can get there via a shortcut, I can ping the Buffalo by name but will the...

dyndns changes by Mike Scott
I seem to have come unstuck in using dyndns. For some years, I've been using their free service to provide a target for my domain's MX record. They used to require the address to be updated monthly (or thereabouts) to keep it live; all worked well. Now they've changed the rules, and require that one log into the accounts area monthly instead. Tedious, and if I'm away when the 5-day warning...

Network Speed by Jeff Gaines
I have just copied 18 files from my desktop to my laptop, desktop is connected to router via a Homeplug AV running at 187Mbps according to its utility program, laptop via WiFi at 54Mbps The 18 files amounted to 864 MB and took 8' 53" to copy - 1.62 MB/s. Putting decimal places in the right place isn't a strength of mine but that must be around 12.96 Mbps? Both machines are running Win 7 x64...

bt's homehub by Mike Scott
Having last week moved to BT's broadband (from Be - who totally mucked up their mail server; I'm not that impressed by BT now I've moved: from fire to frying pan, I think :-) ) I've been looking at the homehub 3 that came 'free'. I'm using my existing netgear for the broadband modem, and so have been able to play with the HH3's PPPoE interface, that would normally plug into their Infinity...

Problems reconfiguring a Linksys/Cisco EA2700 with a different localIP address by Henry Law
I have a new EA2700 which I'm about to introduce into my local network. I have always changed the default network to one of the other RFC1918 blocks so I set out to do that again. The configuration screen allows me to change the IP address of the router to (say) but the DHCP address range is hard coded in its first three octets, that is to say 192.168.1.--- Damn...

access point to repeater to ethernet client to ap good idea? by [email protected]
Currently my internet comes from a standard adsl wifi router which gets the internet and organizes the local ip address's. Then to a repeater on the end of a barn. This allows the shed of on the far side of the barn to use the house's wifi via the repeater even though there is a barn in the way. But you can only get wifi if you are in the window of the shed facing the end of the barn with the...

odd packets being blocked by firewall by Mike Scott
I'm puzzled. I've got a pf firewall running on a freebsd server. It logs (while blocking) a lot of inbound packets from the net to a specific high port number 31534, and a weirdly consistent ack tcp field. The source port often (always??) seems to be a well-known port number. For example, from the top of the pf log with tcpdump and and grepping for 31534: 2013-03-18 15:38:18.426396 rule...

Mixed Homeplugs by Geoff Lane
I have three homeplugs in my network, 2 Devolo 200mbps units and one 7dayshop 200mbps unit. All work fine. Bought 2 more 7dayshop 200mbps units, can I get them to connect into the network, can I hell. What's more, taking out the Devolo units and trying to use just the three 7dayshop units I still can't get them to connect.

Recommendations for a home wifi-enabled router? by Henry Law
I have BT Infinity, and I want to put a second router "inside" the BT router, giving me both a DMZ and a second layer of insulation against the outside world. I have favoured Linksys routers in the past but their current range are all a strange shape, in the interests of being living-room-friendly I suppose. The EA2700 for example (picture here...

Configuring multiple routers? by DaveC
The Comcast service comes into a Motorola cable modem (SB6121). Plugged into the modem's Ethernet port was an Airport Extreme base station. This provided wifi service to this small office building for more than a year. Now there is a need for adding to that some Ethernet capability. (Yes, the Airport has Ethernet ports, but it is located high up where plugging in Ethernet cables is...

wifi repeaters by Simon Finnigan
Hi all, Just after some advice. I'm looking into getting a wifi repeater to extend my wireless coverage. I'm curious though - do they use the same channel as the original access point, or a different channel? Anyone able to suggest any decent way of doing this, cheaper the better and I'm happy to buy old kit and reflash it :-)

treatment ? by Sarah
Hiya all. it might be appropriate to define the remote monitoring of the colour with great confidence when evaluating the light; what do you do to focus on the light outsourcing and its links with the colour flow control? Prior to any discussions about the light , you can try this http://www.facebook.com/Web3Vector :-)
