In the question 7 of your homework? hehe

the problem is with the signal, this would work if the whole 300m was visible you could look from the other end to the other. It would work in a hall or a open space. but as there are walls in between the range doesn't extend as far. Personally I would Use 3 wireless accesspoints to cover the whole building, if there are many stores. I might need to add additional accesspoints to cover the whole building.

Question 10

I would personally choose a remotely configureable switch / hub. so if a problem came up I could connect to it from my workdesk.

    I mean if there are many floors in the building. Stores, well you know what I mean, not shops.

    Intelligent, it has the remote control features.(network management, etc etc)

    I would say it is the best choice to a remote office with no it staff.


    Intelligent Hubs:

    Intelligent hubs add some more features to that provided by the
    active hubs. An intelligent hub provides all the features of a passive
    and an active hub; it also provides some features, which help in
    managing the network resources effectively and efficiently. Intelligent
    hubs help in improving the performance of the network/LAN that you are
    using. As an active hub helps in finding out where the problem
    persists, an intelligent hub itself finds out the problem in the
    network, diagnoses it and tries to rectify it without letting the
    problem hamper the performance of the network. Intelligent hubs
    provides feature that helps in determining the exact cause and exact
    place of the fault, this saves lot of time and energy which otherwise
    would have been required for finding out the exact place of fault and
    identifying the solution for it. Another feature of intelligent hub is
    that they can decide which packet goes in which output line, this helps
    in controlling and minimizing data traffic in the network, which
    results in improved performance of the network/LAN.



    Intelligent hubs also help in managing the data communication
    within the network, it recognizes the slower devices automatically and
    helps them to transmit the data with their own speed, and during this
    time the hub manages the traffic within the network effectively. This
    feature also improves the performance of the network manifolds. An
    intelligent hub also adopts the changes in the network very easily and
    it also supports different technologies without need of changing
    anything in configuration.

    as these are just school questions Id say intelligent is the best choice but in real life it would debend, obviously if the remote office has only 1-2 people it wouldn't be smart to invest in a intelligent hub, a passive or active one might do just fine.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Which is the best for securing a router


Right now WPA2 is the best encrytion available for wireless routers. When they first came out it was WEP, then WAP now its WAP2, 128 Key encryption. And you can hide your SSID from broadcastings, finally always set the WEP along with the WPA2.

Wireless problem


Hello router_lost

I believe you are correct in your assessment that the issue is related to your router. Likely, that issue involves configuration - of your router and/or your laptop computer.

(01) Is the computer that is running Vista connecting to the Internet (via the router) using a wireless network adapter or a wired network adapter?

(02) Assuming that the Vista computer is connecting to the Internet wirelessly, please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and version of your router.

If the Vista computer is connecting "wired" and not "wirelessly" AND you have no other devices on your LAN (home network) that are successfully connecting to the Internet wirelessly through this router, then, it's possible that the router's radio is not enabled. However, if the laptop is "seeing" your router, then, of course, that isn't the case.

(03) Are you sure you are attempting to connect to the correct wireless router from your laptop?

I've seen it quite often where users will think they're connecting (or trying to connect) through their own router when, in fact, the router is a neighbor's (not their own).

(06) You can avoid this possibility by assigning an unique SSID to your wireless radio. In other words, change the SSID (wireless router's "name") to something other than the manufacturer's default SSID. (e.g. Netgear's default is "netgear" and Linksys's default SSID is "linksys", etc.)

It's best, for security purposes, not to assign a revealing SSID (e.g. "TheSmiths" or "2201YourStreetName", etc). Call it "BlueMoon" or whatever you like. Just something unique yet not revealing of your identity or location.

(07) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and revision of your router.

(08) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and serial number (or service tag) of your laptop computer.

(09) Please, tell us the operating system that is running on your laptop computer.

W/ this information, we'll be able to provide you with specific instructions for correcting your laptop's connectivity problem at home.

(10) Do you know if you have WEP or WPA encryption enabled on the router?

If you do, then you will need to enter either the router's wireless encryption "password phrase" or the hexadecimal key code password in order for the laptop to be allowed to access the Internet. You should only have to do this one time - then your computer will save the information.

If you've been connecting to free networks fine, then you've likely not been required to enter a password phrase or key in order to connect.

Please, post back here w/ answers to the questions I've asked here along with any other questions, comments, and observations you might have. We'll continue to work w/ you on this issue until it's resolved.

Thank you

Dg 834g router


is this a wireless network?

are you trying to retrieve SECURITY codes, or just basic network settings?

your best bet is probably to log into the router, from the vista laptop, rather than looking at the settings the vista laptop is currently using...

on the vista laptop, open a webbrowser, and type in the ip address for your router.

that is PROBABLY 192.168.0.1

the username is PROBABLY admin
the password is PROBABLY "password"

from there, if you click on wireless settings, it should show you all the details you need.

did the people who set this network up for you leave any information about username, password, ip addresses, anything like that?
