Hi Perry653,

If you do not want to use mac authentication - are you using an AP that supports VLANs? If so - then create an SSID tagged to a VLAN, with WPA security - and have these PS2 type of devices connect to that SSID - then create a VSC with that VLAN as ingress, and disable authentication.

If that is not an option, then your login web server can detect the UserAgent of the device, and do a NOC based login - this is subject to spoofing of UserAgent (but MAC is also subject to spoofing).

Finally, you could disable authentication, and use Tools/Trace to capture the packets that the Xbox uses, and whitelist in the ACL those ports, then re-enable authentication. I suspect the Xbox also uses port 80 (http) and if so, this method defeats the entire login page redirection.

So mac authentication really is the best method. We operate / manage / installed over 2000 of these type of devices, perhaps we can help you with your project.

The MSM720 allows 250 guest users. From what I know of networking this should apply to your product as well.

We have a Procurve MSM760 Controller with 6 MSM310 Access Points setup in our office. We can't seem to ping individual hosts (PCs) over the network. Any solutions?

You should disable client isolation (in VSC, allow traffic between [ALL] wireless clients).

Are the MSM310 in controlled mode or autonomous?

My xbox live is not working and my connection to the internet is on

Do you have an Xbox Live Gold Membership? To get Xbox Live you have to buy the membership, that's why a lot of people go with PS3 because you don't have to pay a monthly bill. But if you do have a gold membership. Press the Xbox button that has a big green X on your controller and then go to settings. Go to system settings, then go to network settings and select which connect your xbox is connect and then test your Xbox live connection. Hope this helps!

We have a controller hp MSM710 and we are using ProCurve Wireless Access Point 10ag also but when we connecting the wifi several times asking the user name and password let me know about this

This is likely a config problem. how often does the msm710 prompt you to log in again - after a few minutes or longer. We can review your config remotely if you like, we also host a Radius backend..

at the top line, type J9421A. It will find your device. Select Software downloads.

3 vlans, data,1; data 2,;voip,5. Ports carry voice tagged, and data. currently Windows 2000 DHCP server lives on Vlan 1 (AND WORKS). Need to upgrade. When we test the new servers we are unable to make both...

Here's what you need to do:

First, be sure to assign an ip address(in the proper subnet) to each VLAN.

Second, use the ip helper-address command in the context of each VLAN, the address used should be the address of the DHCP server

Third, Add a scope for each additional VLAN on the DHCP server.

The switch will route the DHCP request to the proper server based on the ip helper-address command parameter and based on the ip address of the VLAN that is passed tot he server, a DHCP address in the proper subnet is automatically configured.

Here is a sample:

ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR# configure
ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR(config)# vlan 33
ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR (vlan-33)#ip address
ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR (vlan-33)# ip helper-address

Must i get a xbox 360 or Ps3?

Both consoles have advantages.
The Xbox 360 has a vast array of titles and has the biggest fan base of the two. If you connect the console to the internet, you can download games and movies through Xbox Live. You can also connect your PC to your Xbox 360 and use the console as a multimedia center using Windows Media Center.

The PS3 has a blu ray drive as standard, so you can watch blu ray movies through your PS3. DVD's are also upscaled up to 720p to improve the look of your movies. The PS3's online service is free, and allows you to download game demo's and downloadable content for games.
The Xbox 360's disadvantages are the fact you need to pay for access to Xbox Live, roughly £40 per year, but it does guarentee a reliable online service. Also earlier and cheaper models of the Xbox do not support full HD via HDMI.
The PS3 is very expensive and lacks quality titles. The console is also on a 10 year plan, so even though the console will outlast its rivals, it is likely to become outdated.
If you want to watch blu ray films and play games occasionally, go for the PS3. If you want a console with a lot of titles and a reliable online service,  get the 360. Of the two I'd choose the 360, but in 2 years or so I might need to reconsider.
