How can I stop my nokia lumina 510 from going on to voicemail before I have time to answer

You can adjust the number of rings before going to voice mail to any number you desire. Check your present settings, it's probably a low number: increase it. Hope this helps!

Set up a home office LAN which access internet through USB wireless gadget

The following networking job I have done in this Lab. It is enough for a small office to access or transfer file Printing and access of shared Internet in different type of operating system.

We have recently set up a home office (small laboratory) LAN. All the computers access the internet through a USB wireless (CMDA) dongle. The USB stick is Huawei EC168C and internet service provider is Reliance Infocom (India). But any USB internet dongle can be use to share internet in a LAN in the following way. And you don't need a router for that. In the areas where ISP cannot give wire line internet connection this type of USB wireless sticks are really helpful for home office.

Basic LAN Connection:

Here this lab has 4 PCs. One Windows XP, another Windows Vista starter and two RedHat Linux server systems. Here in this lab I have done the basic LAN connection using cat5 cable & RJ45 connector and an 8 port hub. I have connect the two windows based OS. Using cross cable I have connected two windows system with the hub. Then I put static IP address in Ipv4 of TCP/IP. After that I set workgroup name to join in a workgroup in windows PCs. Then I tried to ping the systems, and it was pinging. Then I have setup a home or small office network in both windows system. That I have enabled the Printer sharing. After that I can share file, data and printer through the system gateway.

Now I have to connect other two Linux PCs in this network. With same cross cable I have joined the both Linux system with the hub. Then to detect the Ethernet device I have put down "DEVICE=eth0" entry in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. Then I set IP address in Ethernet device in network configuration in graphical mode (or System-config-network in text mode).After doing this job I restart the network service with "service network restart" command. Then I am trying to ping the systems to one another, And It was pinging.

Now Linux system can access with each other and files also shared through SSH, Telnet,FTP using process and command.

Linux Configuration:

I have configured the Linux system in the following way. First I have set the host name in /etc/sysconfig/network file by VI editor. Next I have edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file with "Device=eth0" to detect the Ethernet device. After that I have put the IP add in network configuration file and Restart the network service. To keep the eth0 on permanently I also use the chkconfig command.

After doing this job File sharing can be possible through network file sharing (Nfs). I have install Nfs package & shared the nfs dir by editing exports file. Then I am trying to automount the NFS dir by automounting process. So that I put automounting entry of nfs file in fstab file. After that it's automounted in other system's mount location.

Windows & Linux Networking:

Through basic LAN both OS can only ping each other. To share file or data samba server (a client server in Linux) must be configured in Linux system. So I Install smb rpm package from yum repository. Then I have Configure the samba/smb.conf file. I put the Workgroup name on Workgroup column of samba/smb.conf file. Then I Set the network IP without host to route in network in Host allow column. At last I put down all details of Samba dir, users at the end of the configuration file set the samba password. After that I restart the samba demon to up the samba server. Now files can shared through samba server. In windows I Set the workgroup name pairs with samba server and also set username and password same as samba server. Now I trying to send or access file through samba in both OS and it happened.

USB Net Connect:

Here in this lab workers are use internet from an Usb net connect. So it must be shared in Network. It is too fast so shared internet can be access easily. In Windows XP system I connect the USB netconnect & share it in network. IF all the network setting is ok then all the systems can access shared internet through gateway. Here all users use this shared internet now.

Access of Another System:
VNC Server & Viewer is software through which we can access of another system easily. I just install the software & set the password. Then I run the vnc server. After that I Put the IP add of vncserver from vncviewer of another system and type the password & start access the vnc server system. It can be access form WAN also. I just Run the Vnc server and connect the internet and I got a Wan IP add provided by ISP.

Distinctive ring programming

The basic Distinctive Ring programming on this unit can be done by following these steps:

1) If you have a phone connected to the 5500 take it off hook.

2) For line 1 press "#", "*", (asterisk sign above 8), 114 "*" (another asterisk), you should hear 3 beeps, "*" (one more asterisk).

Turning it off is the same sequence, but instead of 114 you will choose 014.

If you have tried the normal programming steps and cannot turn on the Distinctive Ring, there may be some type of incompatibility between the switch and your local phone system. If that is the case you will have to contact the place you purchased the switch from for support. As there are a lot of phone carriers and ISP systems out there they will have the correct programming for you.

How to network two computers and one printer trough a netgear FS105 switch?

Connect your two computers to netgear swtich with Ethenret lan cable into LAN port.
Then set ip address in both computer in network adapter property same subnet mask and gateway ip is different .
Means if you give ip to 1 computer you can give ip to another computer.
Then both computer are in network.
Then if your printer is network printer then you can connect your printer with lan cable to switch then set ip ion printer same way.
But if you haven;t network printer then you can connect printer into 1 computer then share your printer in contol panel->printer and faxes if you use windows then right click on printer icn then click on share so you can use it in network.

on one computer, go to START>>RUN>>services.msc and press enter, the services window will come up, scroll down & turn OFF DHCP and set to disabled, reboot PC, you should be OK. Also BOTH must be setup on same network name, eg: MSHOME, also both must have an individual name and password. This is under network properties, If you wish to use each others files, you must enable "Sharing" on the hard drive & or folders that you want to share. You can do this by right clicking the drive or folder and choosing "Share" and set that up.

Linksys sd2008 won't work with printers

I need more information regarding your problem. You mentioned printers, which I assume you are referring to more than one printer device.
Are the printers connected or capable of using the Ethernet port on the gigabyte switch? If they or some of the printers are connected directly to the switch through an Ethernet cable you may need to configure the device from the I/O menu accessed through the printer setup to activate the Ethernet connection or Jet Direct from the HP printers. You will need to assign a TCP/IP address on the printer which should match the computer's network IP without duplicating the address. If the computer IP address is the printer must use an address which no other computer or device is using, for example, (note you can only change the last number of the IP address).
If you are trying to access printers connected to a port on one of the network computers I need to know if it is a PC or MAC? If it is a PC, I need to know the operating system type i.e. Windows, DOS, Linux, or Unix and version i.e. Windows7, Vista, XP, 98. I will assume Windows XP, which needs to have the printer device marked as Shared. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Right click on the printer you are trying to use and select Sharing. Select Share this printer and give it a share name to help you identify it when shared on the network and click OK. Go to another computer on the network where you want to use the shared printer. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Click on Add a Printer. Click next and select add a network printer. Select browse for a printer and click next. After a few moments, you should see your shared printer with the share name. Select the printer and continue through the rest of the installation. You should be able to use the printer from that computer. If your printer is connected to a computer, you must have that computer on to use it on the network. If your printer is connected to an Ethernet switch you will be able to use the printer as long as the printer and switch is turned on. If this does not help try to be more specific, and I will clarify the instructions.

Use two computers with one printer

Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000

Netgear FS105 Switch is not fowarding ports properly.

Does your modem have a built in router or do you have a router in your network. The switch needs no changes that's all it is a switch it will allow computers to talk and share fine, if you want to use it for internet you will need to connect it to a router first or use one of your computers as the router and let it share the connection. since you disabled DHCP on your router I am assuming you have a router. all you need is to connect the switch to the router, the connect the computers to the switch and all should work.
