This depends entirely on what wireless hardware you use. If you have something like Cisco ISE tied into Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers or WiSMs then sure. Aruba and Meraki (recently purchased by Cisco) also have modules for this kind of thing. If you just have a few random SOHO APs floating around, then no. You can't do something like this. You need an ...
You should be able to do this yourself without a consultant and without special instruments as 4,000 square feet with 30 users isn't all that big. Test from the ground up: Make sure that the access points are configured to use different channels (Read the "Wireless- Advanced" section of the TP-Link Users Guide carefully and see "Wireless"->"Advanced" on ...
Setting up a wireless network in a 4000 square foot space requires either an extremely knowledgeable installer, or having someone who owns some proper testing equipment. You will need to do a survey of the room, including finding out what sort of background noise there is, and if there are other networks on the same spectrum. You will then have to plan the ...
You need to use machine authentication only. I have had many bad experiences with trying to get the "Connect directly before user logon" method working, and no good ones. The best results always come from using machine auth only. Alternatively, set the wireless profile to use "machine OR user authentication". This way the machine with auth when no one logs ...
This could be related to the "hidden node problem" if .6 and .7 aren't in direct radio contact, but without knowing the distances involved it's impossible to say. Also either or both of the chipsets could have a buggy ad-hoc mode, it's not used much these days and wouldn't be surprising.
This sounds a lot like what Kismet does but its patina might not be widely accepted. I can glean a Windows stored WiFi profiles from the Registry under the WZSVC key in XP, 2003 server and Vista. (HKLM/System/CurrentCSet/Drivers/WzSVC or Wlansvc) //you hvave to be ready to navigate the tree yourself since) Since then its been changed to WlanSvc and in 8 and ...
You need to use 2 different VLANs. But unfortunately, the GS1100 is an unmanaged switch, so it doesn't support that feature.
My dnsmasq.conf was wrong (check the ip range). Here's the correct one: expand-hosts domain=test.com dhcp-range=192.168.1.40,192.168.1.99,12h dhcp-option=1,255.255.255.0 dhcp-option=3,192.168.1.100 dhcp-option=6,192.168.1.100
Why should the BYOD be any different for users when inside your premises than outside? If it were me I'd set up the WIFI as it's own network with internet access and use VPN to access the restricted stuff.
I have a School District Customer who has a similar setup to what you're talking about. Public access is run over a separate VLAN with dedicated Linux-based DHCP and DNS and no access to the corporate network except thru the edge firewall (effectively putting the public wifi "outside" the firewall-- so VPN access, and access to DMZ-hosted servers works ...
Presumably your clients are getting their IP addresses (and thus gateways) via DHCP from the Netgear. If you disable the DHCP server on the Netgear and run it on the RPi instead, you'll be able to specify whatever gateway you want your clients to have.
You will want to send keep-alives from your clients to maintain the connection in the NAT table of the router. In Windows you can set putty to send keep alive packets. PuTTY > Connections set Sending of null packets to keep connection alive to a non zero number. You will have to change this on any saved sessions. In Mac OSX you can change single users ...
Maybe the problem is the configuration of openssh server. You can change idle time in sshd_config using the ClientAliveInterval and ClientAliveCountMax (/etc/ssh/sshd_config) For example: ClientAliveInterval 30; ClientAliveCountMax: 5; ClientAliveInterval: Sets a timeout interval in seconds (30) after which if no data has been received from the client, ...
This will not work the way you are hoping. What you will have is two access points to the same network. THere is a good chance that they will interfere with each other if they are not far enough apart (since they will be using the same SSID).
I don't know of a best practices guide, but I think it's a bit too simple* to need one - WebBlocker is designed so you can have multiple policies. You haven't explained the network setup at all and how the networks will get to the Watchguard - you can't tie the policy to an SSID - but presumably they are all individual, distinct networks that the Watchguard ...
Assuming the wireless networks will be on a different subnet than the main network, what I would do is set up an alias for the wireless network eg alias 'Wireless' for network 10.1.1.1/24. Then set up an HTTP-proxy that uses that web blocker and add that alias to the proxy.
Let's see if my understanding is correct: You have four rooms (I'm picturing something like trailers at a job site), each with their own standalone networks, you want to connect each standalone network together and you cannot pull cable to any of these locations. As a networking professional, I always advocate professionally installed cable runs as a means ...
I really doubt the ISP will throttle your bandwidth. I would try to take off your wireless encryption and just run it completely open. If it works OK, it is your router not processing fast enough the encryption packets. Otherwise I would venture to guess that there is some sorts of misconfiguration limiting your wireless speed in your access point.
I am not sure how all of them work, but in Ireland, there is a company called BitBuzz who install a broadband line into the premisis and then run their service from that. the company who gets the connection from them also gets a broadband connection for their own use. More details are available at their connect site. There are also smaller providers, like ...
