Best wireless network installation with the switch TP-Link

Hi all

Few question numpty maybe, but what follows... We just moved to a new (larger) home with thick walls and I want to set up a new wireless network.

The current installation is:

Fiber cable entering the House in the basement and connected the modem to the service provider that provides 150 mb internet. I changed the capacity wireless on the ISP's modem and connecting an airport extreme (2014 model) via the LAN to the modem. The extreme is in the office but on the 3rd floor is having connection problems than you can imagine. All rooms have access points CAT5e who all meet in the basement. I have two spare Aiport express and two Apple TV that I would use. Also I bought a TP-LINK 1000mbps (16 channels) Network Switch.

Could someone please tell how the best set-up of my home network. For example, the Airport Express to the 3rd floor connected to the switch (wired) network or to an extreme in the Office? Apple TV also connected to the network switch?

I would like to end up with a solid wireless network that passes without problem from extreme to Express necessary each time you walk and you want to use an Apple TV for television on the ground floor and one in our room.

Many thanks and apologies once more for this very basic question... I have expanded my front (extreme Express) wireless network but just don't know how best to use the switch.

Thank you

The simplest up set... which is almost always the best game in place... would be to connect the switch 16 ports to the modem/router and then connect devices to the switch. In other words, if your modem/router has 16 + Ethernet ports, the simplest network configuration would be to plug as many devices as possible directly to the modem/router.

Other variants are possible, for example, the network might look like this:

Internet > Modem/Router > AirPort Extreme > switch > devices... or, you can connect certain devices to ports Ethernet on the AirPort Extreme and some to the ports on the switch.  One thing to keep in mind however... If there is a problem... Troubleshooting may not be easy since it will be difficult to know where the problem actually lies.  Much easier to all have, or of possible devices, connect to the switch.

Unfortunately, the AirPort Express devices will be of real bottlenecks on your network.  These devices are notoriously slow as well as wireless, and even if they work well, the speed will be does not exceed 100 Mbps... since it's the speed of the port to the AirPort Express.  In fact, I expect each Express to provide a wireless signal in the range of 50-60 Mbps.

Another thing to keep in mind of the wireless network is that Macs will usually a good work of tilting automatically to the point of wireless to the other as moving from one place to the other in the House... but the iPhones, iPads, PCs, and other mobile devices will do that very well... If they do at all.

So with these devices, you will need to get used to temporarily disable the WiFi on the device and the device when you move in one region to the other, and then turn WiFi on must generally then pick up the signal from a nearby wireless access point.

    I think that you are writing about Hardware configuration CD of the CallManager. If you are, then this is a NO-NO.

    You need the disks of the Platform Configuration that is provided with the server if you have purchased the license for the windows 2000 Server.

    So, if you don't have the disks in the Configuration of the platform, you can download the driver from HP hard drive controller and install Windows manually. Install SP4, IE6 Sp1 and you can use automatic Windows Update If you follow this guide:

    You can have the file/etc/ssh/ssh_config, where the default port is set at 22. Replace with 7547 and try ssh racnode1 "date; hostname". If it works, then it contains the definition, you may need to perform.

  • Satellite A75 - switch wireless works only with the Intel wireless network adapter

    The Atheros card that came with my Satellite A75 had questions, so I installed an Intel 2200.
    According to Device Manager, everything works and is properly installed and should work, but the message I get is the wi - fi switch.

    It is placed at the position, but the indicator light lights up and the Intel card does not connect without it. The light comes on with the Atheros, but this card hangs the system.

    A few months ago, I borrowed an Intel 2200 on an IBM and put it in the A75 temporarily and it worked fine, that's why I bought the Intel.

    I tried the FN + the button with the antenna, but no effect, even if it also works with the Atheros.
    Y at - it another way to activate the wi - fi in addition to the switch and the FN, or is there a way to disable the switch function if the computer doesn't even know it's there?

    Maybe it works.

    Thank you.

  • V40 HP on office xp and is shared via the wireless network. laptop with windows 7 will not be printed on v40.

    Cannot print from laptop (windows 7) via the wireless router desktop (windows xp) with attached usb HP v40 .for all-in-one.

    (7) - wireless laptop router - desktop (xp) - usb - HPv40

    Has worked for laptop is running xp.

    Laptop of the coils of print job at the office and apparently complete, but the bureau simply ignores the print job.

    No error message.

    printing from office very well.

    I reported this as resolved. I submitted this problem. The problem started when the update of my laptop computer from Windows XP to Windows 7. When I did, the Lexmark printer to my desktop worked find with the new system of the laptop. The HP V40 has failed. The Office has just received each print job submitted from the laptop (via a local wireless network) and scrapped it. I could see the print job come in the V40 print queue and could disappear.

    Here's what I did to solve the problem:

    I tried a dozen or so combinations of withdrawal and installing the printer on my Windows 7 laptop and my Office Windowx XP (with the V40 attached via USB) and manually removing and installation of printer drivers on my desktop PC, it works finally. What have I done? I have no idea, but I think that deleting manually pilots v40 on the office was part of the solution. While view printers available on my XP desktop computer, I clicked on file and one of the tabs has led me to a place where I could remove the drivers for each printer (I just removed them for the V40).

    Here's what I DIDN'T DO:

    I'm not following the advice of the HP support person I contacted by phone. This Board had to reinstall Windows XP on my desktop. That clearly was not the problem when I talked to him. But he would NOT listen to reason. Luckily I have enough knowledge to know PC than its low of false tips

    I am pleased with the resultant availability of the V40 again.

    I have no idea how to officially close this problem.

    I would be happy to discuss with someone else who has a similar problem, but when I submitted this problem with my name and email address, the moderator has deleted my presentation of the problem. Therefore, I think that all those who want to know more is out of luck.

    Hello

    I thank you and wish you the same.

    I see that your problem has been solved using the HP driver that you mentioned on Thursday, November 18 in your message and the Express.sys is a problem with Windows install.

    I suggest to install the version of Windows install 4.5 on the system from the link below and then update the driver from the link that was attached to your question before and check.

     

    Step 1:

    Install windows install 4.5

    Windows install 4.5 Redistributable

    Step 2:

    Update the driver from the link you mentioned in your previous post.

    I suggest you to check with TP-link if this model is compatible with Windows XP or not.

  • Best practices of priority network traffic at the switch

    What is usually the best way to prioritize the specific traffic a VLAN specific?

    I work with the differentiated Services to match the traffic of a VLAN specific and assign a queue of 6 switch to give traffic a higher priority than normal traffic. But I'm not sure that with this configuration. I red on the priority of traffic from the switch but I didn't understand any of this I think.

    The police are certainly working. In the web interface, I see that are packages offered for the DiffServ, according to me, I'm missing something...

    Config:
    Policy-map {policy name} in
    class {class name}
    Assign-queue 6
    output
    interface port-channel 1
    service-policy in the {policy name}

    Just a brief update: I think that my setup works fine. I figured out that the ping response delay has more to do with the terminal and then with the configuration of the switch :)

    Hello

    If everything checked OK wise network, and you have mentioned before: ' sfc/scannow' in the command as administrator prompt and it said "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to trouble".

    It is perhaps that some kernel files are corrupted and cannot be updated.

    Refresh the Installation of XP.

    To be safe, back up your data and some special stuff to a flash drive.

    Boot from the original XP CD. Pass the first screen offering Console repair and proceed as if you install a new XP.

    After accepting etc., the new Setup screen lights up and would detect the current XP installation.

    Use it, would take about 45 min. and you would an Installation of XP refresh all by keeping your Application, data and XP configuration.

  • I don't have an icon of the wireless network adapter in the settings of my card.

    I have a laptop but I have no any wireless network settings icon in my "change adapter settings". For more convenience, I put the screenshot here. What can I do for this problem? Please help me.

    Windows in not aware of an installation wireless installed in your computer.  Cause most likely this is the lack of the suitable driver for your specific hardware.

    Check Device Manager and see if it is listed there with a yellow exclamation point.  If this is the case, Windows can see it but it has nothing to do with it, no software device driver.

    Your single source for drivers should be the web site of the manufacturer of your computer.  Go ahead, find your model, then the driver you need.  In many cases these sites more than offer pilot and you may have to do some testing before finding which is the one you need.

    Most laptops have a switch that turns the wifi radio on or off.  Often, it is a combination of the Fn key and one of the F keys.  It may be a physical switch somewhere on the laptop.  See your manual for details.

    If this isn't the problem...

    What is the brand and model of your router?  Almost all wifi routers also have at least one Ethernet port, you can connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable and download the right driver for your http://www.asus.com/support wireless card
    Have you tried to "Roll back driver" in the "Driver" tab of your adapter wifi 'properties' in Device Manager?  At the very least, determine which version of the driver is installed, and compare that to the current version on the asus support site.
