File sharing on WLAN by MSI RG54G2

Hi,
I have MSI RG54G2 as an AP servicing sevaral clients (PCs, PDA, DVB..). Each of the devices (with a fixed IP) can access the internet services, but cannot see and communicate to each other. I can see they are commuinicating to MSI RG54G2 (via association client list) but they cannot be pinged neither from the other client nor from the MSI RG54G2 directly. How can i fixed that?

How many ip camera can this device handle? i already have 4 existing and it works just fine. How is it if I add 4 more ip camera? Is it going to work well?


Hi,
D-Link DIR-615 is a Wireless N 300 Router, which delivers great performance, network security and coverage, etc. I have deployed a similar D-Link Router for about 10 Wired and wireless client PCs in a network for file, print and internet sharing and it performed without any issues. So, I think, you can add additional IP cameras and it should work fine.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Question: What is infrastructure mode in wireless networking? Answer: Infrastructure mode wireless networking bridges (joins) a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network. Infrastructure mode wireless also supports central connection points for WLAN clients. A wireless access point (AP) is required for infrastructure mode wireless networking. To join the WLAN, the AP and all wireless clients must be configured to use the same SSID. The AP is then cabled to the wired network to allow wireless clients access to, for example, Internet connections or printers. Additional APs can be added to the WLAN to increase the reach of the infrastructure and support any number of wireless clients. Compared to the alternative, ad-hoc wireless networks, infrastructure mode networks offer the advantage of scalability, centralized security management and improved reach. The disadvantage of infrastructure wireless networks is simply the additional cost to purchase AP hardware. Note that home wireless routers all feature a built-in AP to support infrastructure mode.

I'm trying to connect the ecb3500 as an AP Router to get wireless access from my cable modem. THe old LinkSys worked fine, although it has low power, but the ecb is unable to connect (status of connection...


ECB3500 Can I downgrade firmware safely with this product?Yes. I cannot get into the device from my computer. What is the basic setting check?

- Make sure you are directly connected to the unit.
- Do not have a switch or router in between and do not connect wirelessly.  
- Make sure your power injector/adapter is on, power is going to the unit, and the "network" side is going to your computer.  
- Make sure your computer is set to a static IP address of 192.168.1.10.
- Type in 192.168.1.1 using Internet Explorer.

How to change the IP Address?

The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. This IP address is typically in conflict with many routers out in the market. You will need to change the IP address manually to an IP address that is different but part of the same network. This means if your router IP address is 192.168.1.1, you should change the device to 192.168.1.2, for example. We recommend you change the IP address before other settings. You change your IP address in the "LAN" section in the GUI.

How do I reset the device?

Locate the reset button next to the CAT5 (RJ45) connection. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds and then let go. You should see your 10/100 LAN connection at your computer go away and then come back. That will confirm a reset has occurred. The unit settings should all be back to default including its IP address of 192.168.1.1.

How do I set up AP WDS Repeater?

Click here for instructions.

How do I set up the device under Apple MAC OS X environment?

Click here for instructions.

I cannot connect or maintain a log in to the device.

We recommend using internet explorer with at least IE7 or higher. Make sure you have latest version of Java script.

What distance in kilometers (km) should I set the device to?

Default is 1km. If you are setting up long distance point to point links, the time it takes the radio wave to get there needs to be considered for proper handshaking (ACK response). This window should be accurate within 5 kilometers. In other words if you have a 5 kilometer link, ideally you should set it to 5km, but a setting of 1km to 10km should keep you in an acceptable window. For short distances, keep this to 1km.

What is a point-to-point link setup?One unit would need to be in AP mode while the other in CB mode. The AP should be connected directly to the routers LAN port, and the other will be in Client Bridge Mode linking back to the AP. The Client side will then provide a WIRED connection for users of the remote location. You can choose to connect this wired connection to just one PC, or to a switch, hub, or another wireless access point for multiple users at the remote location. What is a Client Bridge (CB) Mode?

A client connects to an access point. Your laptop is a client. A bridge is something that connects two "wired" networks together. A client bridge therefore is a radio that wirelessly bridges two networks. The Ethernet port of the 2610 in CB mode provides the wired connection to the remote location. This Ethernet port can directly connect to a single PC, a hub, a switch, or another router. 

What is considered a "good" signal?The signal meter is not available in AP mode. In CB mode, under connection status, a signal of -74dbm or better is a good signal. It's important to understand which direction numerically is a better signal. Dbm's are referenced to 1 milliwatt. 1mW = 0dbm. A stronger signal would be a positive number and a weak signal would be a very negative number. For example, a -50dbm signal is stronger signal than -92dbm. What is spanning tree protocol?

When there are several possible paths a packet can route to (redundant links for increased reliability for example), a loop can occur (jamming up the network). It is used to prevent these loops.

What is the default gateway?The default gateway is your router's IP address. The default gateway information is not required, but is recommended.What is the default user name and password to log into this device?

Log in name is "admin" and password is "admin" by default.

What is WDS Mode?Stands for Wireless Distribution System. Allows access points to link together and provide repeating. Note however, this repeating comes at a cost of reduced bandwidth. Bandwidth will be reduced by 30-40%, and it is recommended that NO multiple repeating hops be done for this reason. Which antenna connector is the primary antenna?The one closer to the power jack.

I have a iphone 3gs and want to access wifi or wireless on toshiba satellite pro x200


Hi,

Laptop normally have single chip WiFi or Wireless Cards...

These cards could be used as client(connecting to wireless router), adhoc or access point(a WiFi card could be used as Access Point to route your LAN(Wired) connection on WLAN)...

Your laptop WiFi card is already busy as a Cleint, so if you want to use it as AdHoc, you have to remove all the other connection with the WIreless...ie, Disconnect the WLAN from connecting other devices, and follow the below mentioed steps to connect your device..

When you are using Client mode you are not able to use it on Ad-hoc or Access Point feature...

Setup laptop to Ad-Hoc
1)Navigate to control panel and choose network connection, Right click on the Wireless network connection and click on the Properties on Wireless NIC
2) Click-Wireless Networks Tab
3) Click-Add
4) Provide SSID Name, name to identify you rnetwork
5)Security -Net Auth: Open
6)Make -Data Encryption: Disabled
7) In the check box present-Check on This is a Computer to Computer (ad-hoc) network.
Change the IP address of the Wireless NIC card, by choosing TCp IP in the properties of WLAN and choosing TCP/IP v4 from the installed service

TCP/IP on Laptop
-IP: 10.0.0.1
-Subnet: 255.255.255.0

TCP/IP on iPhone
-Static IP
-IP: 10.0.0.2
-Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Now try searching for Wireless through your phone, you should able to connect..
Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Connect MSI RG54G2 to speadstream 4200


so that means if you connect the computer to the modem, it works but not with the router.
it seems that the router and the modem are not communicating with each other.
When you connect the computer to the modem , check the IP address through the modem. If ti is private IP address then you will need to change the settigns on the router.

The Pre-shared key is used to setup encryption on wireless routers.
The latest strongest encryption methods used is Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2).
The wireless router is configured with WAP or WAP2, and the computer's wireless card is configured with the router's WAP or WAP2 encryption. The wireless router will now allow communication with the computer's wireless card, data transmitted between the router and computer is encrypted and therefore protected from unauthorized access.

Ipod touch - wireless connect to my MSI RG54g2 router


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to your queries:
  • instruction book - pls click here;
  • passwords - open a browser, the MSI RG54G2 web interface is 192.168.1.254, password is "admin", less the quotes;
  • iPod touch - will auto detect your MSI
  • setting on my router - if allows your computer(s) to access the Internet, no further settings required;
  • iPod can connect to the internet - if no WEP or WPA is set on the MSI router.
This is of course assuming that the MSI RG54G2 is allowing your computers to access the Internet lready and will be shared to the iPod Touch.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Dial up?


Hi,

Technically no, not unless the PC where the modem is connected to is used as a Gateway/Share Internet Connection and is connected to the WAN side of the router. However, this arrangement would need a lot of manual configuration and settings on the modem side PC as well as the client PCs.

Alternately, you may be better off connecting the modem PC to a hub rather than a router and set static IP adds on the client PCs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

ZyXel P660HW-T1 ... Problem bridging 2 wirless adsl routers


What do you mean by "wireless bridging"? Does it mean wirelessly connecting both routers? (ex. Zyxel is at location A and Micronet ais at Location B and you'll wirelessly connect them). If this is what you mean, then it might not be possible since those are two different brands and possibility is that they will not work with each other when they're wirelessly connected unless one or both routers have the capability to do so.
