If i get what you are saying correct you have one network line connected to a computer and you can not get a second network line for your AP, so you decided to use that same line for the computer and for AP at the same time. something like Cisco phones you have one line coming to the Cisco phone then to the computer. if you really cannot get a second ...


(clientsOfLan1) ))> RB1 <---> SXT1 ))> <(( SXT2 <---> switch <(( (clientsOfLan2) if you want LAN1 and LAN2 use the same subnet, just make RB1 as the main router. LAN1 and LAN2 assign DHCP from RB1. i did it on my office. thank you.


Clearly you have an interference problem. Interference can come from passive elements like aluminum wall studs or thick floors, but those are not likely to show the periodic pattern you see. So something electric or electronic is periodically emitting. Finding it may be expensive or tough, but you have a few options. Graph more. It would be nice to make ...


To me, the intermittent nature indicates a hardware problem. Wireless routers go bad often. I'd try a new router and see if that doesn't resolve it. Maybe you can replace under warranty with Netgear if it's not too old? Or you could always run a bunch of cat-5 and mini switches everywhere, the wired part of the router's probably fine


You need a RADIUS server! But today, even small home routers have enough power to allow this. I have a Asus RT-N65U and a Asus RT-N56U at my parents house with custom firmware and FreeRadius2. You do need some Linux knowledge to set it up! The router allows to set a RADIUS server in the web interface. After you set one up, you just enter localhost there!


Another possible solution is to set up multiple SSIDs and provide separate passwords for each one. It's not as elegant as having multiple passwords for the same SSID, but it would accomplish the same thing and would be easy to manage if your router supports multiple SSIDs. One such router is Asus' RT line of consumer-level dual-band routers (I have the ...


I would answer your question with another question...what do you hope to gain by having each user connect using a different password? The exercise seems somewhat pointless to me unless you're also hoping to attach some sort of network policies to the different credentials that you didn't mention in your original question. Other respondents are correct, ...


What you need is WPA-2 Enterprise, combined with a RADIUS server for authenticating users. If you have an existing Active Directory infrastructure, then you can use the Network Policy Server role in Windows to do the authentication and allow users to log on with their AD username/password.


Your wifi needs to be connected to a gateway where you can redirect the traffic towards your captive portal (login page). You can do this by using iptables on linux. Say that your interface eth0 is connected to your access point with the subnet and your gateway (linux server) is configured at and has internet access on a separate ...


How can I create a network between these 2 computers for file sharing? Connect them both to the same router at the same time. Can I access SQL server installed on 1 computer from 2nd computer? If yes, how? Yes. There's nothing special you need to do. Whatever tool you are using should let you specify the server you want to connect to. Specify the ...


My comments are turning into an answer, so here's some thoughts: DLink is a terrible idea, I can't say enough bad things about their equipment. MikroTik can probably handle this, but they're off in the DIY land more than Professional (supportable, maintainable, etc). If I were doing this on a shoestring budget I'd be looking for some used ProCurve MSM422 ...
