Question about Belkin N1 Vision Router

Open Question

Hostname display versus UNKNOWN.1 or others

I also have this problem very often. All my devices have a hostname defined. Usually it appears on the Belkin display but some unknown.x appear in addition. Using the "list DHCP clients" on belkin web interface shows only real client host names, not the unknown.x. I have time lease 1 hour. Even after this, unknown remain on the display. I have mac restriction on filtering (LAN & Wifi) so there is no hidden device connected.
Any idea on how this solve this issue would be appreciated. Thanks

DHCP Host name is what your looking for.
you need to name each item ie. psp as psp and ps3 as ps3 when you setup each item for connection. so when you setup or edit the settings for your ps3 on your ps3 you need to look for DHCP Host name and name it ps3. etc
do the same for all.

SOURCE: belkin wireless router not assigning IPs for wireless clients

Some routers start handing out DHCP wireless IP's at 192.168.2.100. Try setting the upper limit at .110. If the router is found in a site survey (view wireless networks) but cannot connect, the limitation would be why.

SOURCE: need to add a computer to the DHCP client list of Belkin router

You can't add a computer to DHCP Client table manually, because DHCP client table is automatic. If you wanna know the MAC address of your computer, go to Start > Run > type CMD and press enter. On the command prompt type in IPCONFIG/ALL and look for Physical Address. That is also the MAC Address of your computer.

SOURCE: Router logging off by itself.

This problem is difficult to trace.
You could be getting some kind of elecrical/wireless interference. This is difficult to trace. If you have the TV on when the router drops off, have you noticed any electrical interference on the TV screen?
It could be as simple as someone using an arc welder in your area.
Or a neighbour heating up something in their microwave oven (this oven can be faulty and is leaking microwave energy).
If you can identify the source of interference then you may find a solution.
There are a few things you can try.
Get a surge protection power board and connect your computer equipment and wireless router to this power board.
You can configure the wireless router to a different channel, one that is not used by your neighbours so that the wireless signals won't interfer with each other.
Have a look at the signal strength to your computer, if it is weak then move the router away from walls and/or raise it higher to improve the signal strength.

Requirements RedHat Linux (should apply to 7.x and up) This tutorial covers...


Requirements
RedHat Linux (should apply to 7.x and up)

This tutorial covers changing your hostname in RedHat Linux without having to do a reboot for the changes to take effect. I’ve tested this on RedHat 7.3, 9, Fedora Core 9, and RHEL 5.3. It should work for all the versions in between since they all closely follow the same RedHat configuration. What’s the point of this tutorial? Never reboot if you don’t have to and keep your uptime intact.

Make sure you are logged in as root and move to /etc/sysconfig and open the network file in vi.

cd /etc/sysconfig
vi network


Look for the HOSTNAME line and replace it with the new hostname you want to use. In this example I want to replace localhost with “MyServer”.

HOSTNAME=MyServer

When you are done, save your changes and exit vi. Next we will edit the /etc/hosts file and set the new hostname.

vi /etc/hosts

In hosts, edit the line that has the old hostname and replace it with your new one.

10.33.44.55 MyServer

Save your changes and exit vi. The changes to /etc/hosts and/etc/sysconfig/network are necessary to make your changes persistent(in the event of an unscheduled reboot).

Now we use the hostname program to change the hostname that is currently set.


hostname MyServer

And run it again without any parameters to see if the hostname changed.


hostname

Finally we will restart the network to apply the changes we made to /etc/hosts and /etc/sysconfig/network.


service network restart

To verify the hostname has been fully changed, logout of your system and you should see your new hostname being used at the login prompt and after you’ve logged back in.

Quick, painless, and you won’t lose your server’s uptime.

Ventrilo will not connect to server anymore.


This can be several things. Either your internet connection is down, the server you are trying to connect to is off line, you're firewall/router is preventing the outgoing connection or you entered the incorrect hostname/ip address and associated port number when you defined the server.

This may happen because it cannot find the hostname of your device. Do the following:

1. Make sure your device is configured to use a Static IP address
2. Type in the IP address (instead of hostname) in the test page

This should fix your problem

Currently working on XEROX WorkCentre Pro 55. Want to scan documents to my computer from newwork printer. What do I need to set up in order to utilize this feature. I tried scanning to a programed user...


> Support & Drivers > WorkCentre Pro 55 Support > Search Results Solution: Set up Network Scanning Using Server Message Block (SMB) Filing With CentreWare Network Scanning Software v 5.5x bttn_print.gifMake Printable bttn_email.gifEmail this page elem_1_spacer.gif Prerequisites:
  • The printer must be connected to the network.
  • The IP Address of the printer is required, and the HTTP option must be enabled on the printer. If you do not know the IP Address, or whether HTTP is enabled, print a Configuration Report. See the Related Items below for additional information. If you do not have this information or the printer is not configured correctly, contact your System Administrator for assistance.
  • A user account for the scanner to login to the scan server must be created (account needs full control access rights). The user needs to be a local user on the workstation and not a domain user.

    NOTE: SMB uses local rights and not domain rights. Record the username and password for future use.

  • A directory to be used as a repository for the scanned files must be created. The directory must then be shared.
  • The Hostname of the workstation must be known.
  • CentreWare 5.5x must be installed on a Microsoft Windows server or workstation on the network.
From the workstation or server where CentreWare is installed:
  1. Click on [Start], point to [Programs], select [Xerox CentreWare], and then select [Add Network Scanner]. The Add Network Scanner Wizard window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Enable a new Xerox System Scanner for network scanning and associate it with a scan server] radio button, and then click [Next].
  3. Select [Specific IP Address] from the Find Devices pull-down menu and continue with step 4, or select [Specific TCP/IP Hostname] and skip to step 5.
  4. If Specific IP Address is selected, an IP Address field will be displayed. Enter the IP Address of the printer in the field, click [Next], and then skip to step 7.
  5. If Specific TCP/IP Hostname is selected, a Hostname field will be displayed. Enter the printer’s TCP/IP hostname in the field, and then click [Next].

    NOTE: Select Specific TCP/IP Hostname if the Printer is using DHCP to resolve the IP Address and has a Hostname assigned.

  6. If the printer has been configured for Scan to File, a window will be displayed with a 'This device has already been configured for network scanning. Continuing will overwrite its current configuration. Do you want to continue?' message. Click on [Yes].
  7. The Enter Password window will be displayed. Enter your system password in the field provided, and then click [OK]. The Server Type (Filing Protocol) window will be displayed.

    NOTE: The initial system password at machine install is 1111. If the administrator encounters a problem with changing the password, or forgets the password, a service call must be placed.

  8. From the Server Type (Filing Protocol) pull-down menu, select [Windows (SMB)].
  9. Click on the [Browse] button located below the Location (\\Server\ShareName\Path) field. The Choose Location – Windows (SMB) window will be displayed.
  10. Browse to the server and then to the Scan folder where the CentreWare scanning folders will be installed, and click [OK]. The Location field will be displayed with the scan server name and the path to the shared scan folder.
  11. Click [Next]. The Xerox System Login Name window will be displayed.
  12. Enter the scan user name and password (this is the user account the printer will use to login to the server share) in the fields provided, and then click [Next]. The Distribution Server window will be displayed.
  13. Do not make any changes. Click [Next].
  14. Click on [Manage User Templates]. The Manage User Templates window will be displayed.
  15. Click on [Modify Template List] to begin selecting template users for this scan server installation. The Modify Template List window will be displayed.
  16. Make a selection from the list of Users and Groups, and then click on [Add] to create a scan folder and template for the selected user or all members of a selected group. If necessary, repeat this step to add additional users or groups.
  17. When you have finished, click [OK] twice. The Finish window will be displayed.
  18. Click on [Finish] to upload the scan settings to the printer. The Add Network Scanner Wizard window will close when the settings have been uploaded.
