The question is "could I" and not "will it work?" The answer is you could. And in fact given the wide variations of such schemes it may or may not work. No one will be able to tell you except the department that runs the network. But could you connect such a thing? Yes.
My dorm wifi is very bad, and it runs over a network that is supplies online through my Campus net where you put your MAC Addresses of your devices in order to connect, could I connect a MAC address of a WiFI router in order to establish a connection for it
You do realise that WHO (and countless other bodies) have found no link between WiFi signals and bad effects on health
Could it be that the wifi is possibly interfering with a medical device? Other than that (and I don't know if it is even possible) I can't imagine that there are any health effects from non-ionizing radiation.
While you have a managed switch you don't seem to have an appliance to manage bandwidth per user.
I don't see what you think your options are but will give a nod to implementing a SQUID server for your users. It has many features that I won't get into here or later. But it does seem to be a great solution as not only the bandwidth control but caching to maximize your internet connection.
Can somebody give me an advice of resolution.I have 1GBPS Bandwidth speed for my Internet Cafe. I have 31 Desktop PCs I have a managed network Switch that my 30 computers are connected on the Switch plus 1 Network Video Recorder for my CCTVs
My router has 2 LAN cables on the back 1 for the PC where the computer controls and monitors the activity of the 20 computers and has control to the CCTVs and 1 NVR
The Problem is Let us say one PC is downloading a huge File (e.g. Video or Software app) the other PC will have greater PING and will have lower speeds on the other PCs that only streams on the web.
FYI (if anyone was wondering) I found a solution and this is it:
I replace both routers with a single Asus running Merlin (enhanced Asus-wrt) that supports OpenVPN with routing rules. Now I just need that one router (so no LAN problems) and use outbound VPN rules so that only the TV devices use the VPN
This area can upset folk. That is, if we break the VPN like this, it's not really a VPN but more of a proxy. That out of the way, some routers let you setup your LAN to VPN to where you wish. But breaking the VPN is well, another thing altogether.
To date I've kept the VPN true and don't accept such breakage to be acceptable and call it a VPN.
Hi Guys. I knw what I want to achieve but not how to achieve it! Any hints would be gratefuly received, or, if it's not possible, tell me so I can stop trying.
I have an internet connection -> router with NAT, DHCP etc -> LAN with all kinds of switches and WiFi access points all on the same subnet.
I have a couple of TV devices that need to access the LAN and also access the internet via a VPN for access to the right countries.
So I connected a VPN router to the LAN and the TV devices to that router. Now all the TV traffic goes via the VPN - so far so good. But the VPN router also VPN's access to the local LAN addresses, so they are inaccessible.
I've fudged it for the moment with a physical 2-1 ethernet switch so I can switch the TVs direct to LAN or via the VPN router, which works, but obviously isn't a good solution.
What I think I need is a router to hang off my my LAN that will simple pass all local traffic but route all other addresses via the VPN.
Is there such a thing? Or is the another way to do it?
@P, since you revealed nothing about your internet setup or location it is anyone's guess why your PC does this. Only the picture tells me this is some PC. Think of all the details required to work your issue.
Then we have countries and ISPs that block content. Also you could be at work or school that blocks YouTube. While I will not help folk get around work and school blocks do try Opera. Turn on the VPN in Opera and see what happens.
I have a question. Whenever I try to open youtube up, it shows up like this(except instead of facebook it's youtube and instead of "it took too long to respond, mine says www.youtube.com refused to connect). Pls tell me how to fix it. Click Here
Internet -> Router w/WiFi -> Switch -> wired devices.
All the wired devices can talk among themselves with an exception being if an app uses the internet to talk to other things. But file copies, normal stuff just is traffic on the porst of the devices chatting and the ports on the switch. Nowhere else.
Can create headaches for those that want to monitor what a device talks about.
Need a little more. In a switched network if machine a and b are on the same switch the traffic is direct between a and b and no other network device sees a thing. Kind of like Master Sergeant Schultz,
I have a router in one room of my house and wires running through the house into my bedroom where it's connected to a switch that further connected to several different computers in my room. What I am wanting to know is how the traffic flows from one computer to another. If computer A sends computer B a file does the data travel from A, to the switch, and then to B? Or does the traffic from A to B travel through the switch and all the way to the router and back before going to it's inteded destination computer B? Thanks.
It's passed on, this modem is no more, it has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. It's a stiff, bereft of life, it rests in peace. It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is an ex-modem!
