Switch to Switch Connection

We, Future Group Bangladesh needs a very long area networking. The IT Department's has already a network (both private and public) Now some other compueters have to be connected in the private network. We have a switch in our IT Department and from this switch we have to make a connection with another switch that is in our DMDs romm which is about 80ft far away from our switch.

This is a very specific problem that requires a site visit to solve, there are many factors that can effect the transmission of data over a run of that length. There are many solutions to this problem, they range from rerouting the cable run to avoid sources of interference to selecting another medium such as WLAN or IrLAN. The specific implementation of the solution must be custom tailored to the situation, sometimes the solution requires equipment that is readily available on a store shevle and sometimes the solution must be engineered to accommodate the needs.

I would recommend looking at the cable route to see if it runs past any major interference makers (copiers/large office machines, industrial equipment, power equipment). Then look at the possibility of an intermediate repeater/router (protected location and availability of power outlets). Another possibility is a wireless technology, the specific technology depends on many factors. If you need high speeds or large data transfer, perhaps an Ir (Infra-red) link or WiMAX (802.16) would be best. If general purpose network connectivity is needed, then a standard 802.11 a/g WLAN will suffice. I recommend that you contact a local networking firm for a detailed consultation. Another resource that might be a better fit for most small budgets will be to contact the local college/university that has a well defined IT program to solicit members of the Alumni in a networking degree field.

What is wifi


Hi,
Wireless local area network is a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet, uses ethernet protocol.

In simple word allow you to surf internet without any internet cable connection, Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone or digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points called hotspots, can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.


Thanks....!!!

I am trying to set up a home group on win 7 i have jion my laptop to home group but get told user identfired probloms can you help


Hi. First, make sure that your network is recognized by your anti-virus/firewall as "safe zone". Then check if your laptop is getting a correct IP from your network. To check your IP, open "Network and Sharing Center" then click "Change adapter settings" (with red arrow in the pict) then right-click "Local Area Connection" select "Status" then click "details" tab. Since you already joined your laptop to home network, you just need to change "network location" by clicking the link below "Network" (shown in the pict) then select "Home Network". Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.

VPN misconfigured after belkin router was configured XP


Hi Grahmmy..
I am myself a (cisco certified network associate)CCNA, we have configured several VPNs on XP, please try these steps and im sure you'll be able to reconfigure the Virtual private network on your XP...
  1. First open the control panel by clicking start,open the Network Connections item in Control Panel. A list of existing dial-up and LAN connections will appear.
  2. Choose the 'Create a new connection' item from the left-hand side of the window. The Windows XP New Connection Wizard will appear on the screen.
  3. First click Next to begin the wizard, then choose the 'Connect to the network at my workplace' item from the list and click Next.
  4. On the Network Connection page of the wizard, choose the 'Virtual Private Network connection' option and click Next.
  5. Enter a name for the new VPN connection in the 'Company Name' field and click Next. The name chosen need not match the name of an actual business.
  6. Choose an option on the 'Public Network' screen and click Next. The default option, 'Automatically dial this initial connection' can be used if the VPN connection will always be initiated when the computer is not already connected to the Internet. Otherwise, choose the 'Do not dial the initial connection' option. This option requires that the public Internet connection be established first, before this new VPN connection will be initiated.
  7. Enter the name or IP address of the VPN remote access server to connect to, and click Next. Company network administrators will provide this information.
  8. Choose an option on the "Connection Availability" screen and click Next. The default option, 'My Use Only,' ensures that Windows will make this new connection available only to the currently logged on user. Otherwise, choose the 'Anyone's use' option.
  9. Click Finish to complete the wizard. The new VPN connection information has been saved. Good luck ;-)

I'm trying to add a mini laptop that runs windows CE to my home network. the other computer runs windows xp. is this possible?


Yes sir. It is very possible. Just make sure that all computers have DHCP enable so that your router can automatically provide every connecting computers with valid IP address. But by default, if your network adapters are installed, this settings are already in place and you don't need to change anything.

To check these settings, under Windows XP:

  1. Click Start => Settings => Network Connections
  2. Under "LAN or High Speed Internet" group, right click your LAN Connection. It usually has a name "Local Area Connection #".
  3. Click on "Properties".
  4. Under the "General Tab" scroll down and click "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and click Properties"
  5. Make sure that it is set to "Automatically get IP address. Please see image.

  • A network is a group of computers (often called nodes or hosts) that can share information through their interconnections. A network is made up of the following components:

    Computer systems (nodes or hosts)
    Transmission media--a path for electrical signals between devices
    Network interfaces--devices that send and receive electrical signals
    Protocols--rules or standards that describe how hosts communicate and exchange data
    Despite the costs of implementation and maintenance, networks actually save organizations money by allowing them to:

    Consolidate (centralize) data storage
    Share peripheral devices like printers
    Increase internal and external communications
    Increase productivity and collaboration
    There are several ways to classify networks. The following table lists several ways to describe a network.

    Peer-to-Peer In a peer to peer network, the hosts provide and consume network services, and each host has the same operating system. Advantages of peer to peer networks include:
    Easy implementation
    Inexpensive
    Disadvantages of peer to peer networks include:
    Difficult to expand (not scalable)
    Difficult to support
    Lack centralized control
    No centralized storage

    Client/Server In a client/server network, hosts have specific roles. For example, some hosts are assigned server roles which allows them to provide network resources to other hosts. Other hosts are assigned client roles which allows them to consume network resources. Unlike peer to peer networks, hosts in a client/server network have different operating systems. Advantages of client/server networks include:
    Easily expanded (scalable)
    Easy support
    Centralized services
    Easy to backup
    Disadvantages of client/server networks include:
    Server operating systems are expensive
    Requires extensive advanced planning

    Geography and Size
    Local Area Network (LAN) LANs reside in a small geographic area, like in an office. A series of connected LANs, or a LAN connected across several buildings or offices, is called an internetwork.
    Wide Area Network (WAN) A WAN is a group of LANs that are geographically isolated but connected to form a large internetwork. When implementing a WAN, remember to provide local access to user resources to prevent a high rate of WAN traffic.
    Participation
    Private A LAN or WAN for private individual or group use which may or may not be secure. Examples include home and organization (small business, corporate, institute, government) networks. Intranets and extranets, although related to the Internet, are private networks. Both an extranet and intranet are tightly controlled, and made available only to select organizations. An extranet is made available to the public and an intranet is made available internally.
    Public A large collection of unrelated computers, with each node on the network having a unique address. The Internet, for example, is a public network. Because computers are unrelated and many companies and individuals share the same communication media, the public network is by nature insecure.
    Signalling
    Baseband Baseband signalling allows one signal at a time on the network medium (cabling).
    Broadband Broadband signalling divides the network medium into multiple channels, allowing several signals to traverse the medium at the same time.

1991 SAAB Turbo dies when running as I approach intersections


Assuming this is a 900. Check the ignition lead from the dizzy to the igition pack. I once had a similar problem, and also check for ANY air pipe leaks. These cars are especially sensitive to air leaks. Look especially at the manifold pipes. Also, make sure tha intercooler pipe is secure. Is there any excessive smoking through the tailpipe?

How to fix Automatic Private address


First: If you have a sales department, don't you have an IT department?
And if not, WHY not?

You will get the APIPA address b/e your DHCP server is not working properly. That can be your router or your DHCP server. If that server is within reach go and check if DHCP is running. Otherwise restart that service.

It might help of you could describe your setup more detailed. What kind of server, how many PC's, problem with all of them (apart from sales)...

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)
    3dce7ab.jpg
  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"
    685e49b.jpg
  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.
