    Connecting two routers

    Ah yes, I set this up a while back while we were still in the old office to test run from my home. It worked fine, but I couldn't get it right to copy modified files back to the NAS, so was still playing around with it. Sadly we have run out of time with this lockdown.

    Connecting two routers

    Yeah, the main router is in the lounge, I am using my study as my office now, so the modem is a bit far. So i set up the second router closer to my study to run some cables to my PC and NAS, and to have the internet access for emails. I always had a second modem there, to increase the wifi...

    Connecting two routers

    Yeah, i have connected using a cat 6e cable, not using the WAN ports. (the WAN port of main router is for fibre internet). Yeah, we just call it a "server" lol. I have managed to get it sorta working, connected the NAS into second router, my work desktop PC is connected to the network via...

    Connecting two routers

    Ping worked 100%. I have setup the default gateway on the second router. I am accessing the routers via WI-FI at the moment, I gave both routers the same wifi name and password, but manually changed the channels.

    Connecting two routers

    Hi all. 1. For some stupid reason I am now able to log into the Main Router. Don't ask how so?? 2. I have tried to Ping the second router from the first router - all works. 3. Our server is a Qnap NAS Server, running a second HD on Raid. 4. I setup the server myself a year or two back onto our...

    Telkom Wireless phones.

    Hi Everyone. We are going to change over from Fixed Line Telkom to their wireless phones. We don't want to have a contract with Telkom, so we would have to buy a phone from them for R2000.00 each. Is it not possible to buy a different phone (a better quality) from somehwere else? If so, what...

    Wireless Networking

    Yeah, I discussed now with the owner, and we going to just stick with the cabling route, especially the fact that we already have the Network switch etc. It will be cheaper and easier just to buy a roll of Cat 6 cable, some terminals and a crimping tool. The admin and Accountant can stay on...

    Wireless Networking

    Hi Daruk. Well we basically have one guy using Solidworks full time, and the owner who basically uses Excel/Word. Then now and then I work on an AutoCAD drawing (2D only), and mostly excel/word. The 4th person is an admin lady who basically just does our filing, so she is not really using the...

    Wireless Networking

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. We currently have 1GBs LAN running in our office, so the wireless will be quite painful. Pity the wireless is limited to slow speeds, as we are moving into a house in Bedfordview, so I didn't want to run trunking etc and ruin the house. Oh well...

    Wireless Networking

    Hi Everyone Our company is planning on moving to smaller premises, so I suggested that we go wireless for our network instead of running new cables etc. We are a staff of 4 people. We are currently running a Qnap TS-431P as our server (only a file server), we don;t use specialized software for...

    HikVision CCTV not sending Emails

    Thanks Daruk. The firmware is all up to date. Did a bit more research, had to create an "APP Password" from Google Account Settings, and use that password instead of the Google Login Password on the email setup. Seems to be working now. I am going to leave this up, in case other people have...

    Which smartphone do you currently use?

    Sony Xperia XZ1. Great phone, good quality too. Started off using Ericsson, then Sony Ericsson, then Sony. Never had any issues with them. I must say the best phone I had was the HTC Desire HD. Had Huawei before my Sony XZ1, and the phone bent in my pocket. Sadly, you can't really get Sony and...
