Q: omni-directional antenna

Hi guys,

Please anyone has info on the linksys omni-directional antenna HGA9N? To what devices can it be connected? Its outdoor range/bitrate? Is it reliable? Can it support large number of users/traffic? If anyone has configured or installed one before please i would welcome his comments on the product. Info on other types of omni-directional antennas would be really helpful.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: omni-directional antenna

Any antenna will have the full bandwidth of the wireless connection, it's only purpose is to more efficiently use the power available, as well as provide more signal strength for incoming signals. It can be connected to any router or wireless card that has a reverse SMA connector, which is the standard for removable antennas. A hi-gain antenna should be very reliable, since there are no active components. As long as you don't abuse the cable, it'll probably work forever.

Buy and get a repeater with dual ANT 50mW or greater. All you have to do is configure it via hardwire cable then plug it into AC socket anyway you have the weak signal starting from. No need to run any LAN cables to it. Since it's 100% wireless repeater. Since you have G just get 802.11g repeater like this one from Amazon has ERB9250 11N 300MB 11N Range Extender Removable Antenna 1 10/100

Im based in a very remote part of the world, where technology is hard to come by. However, we do have a "working" wireless networkk that needs a facelift. I'll try describe it best as possible and maybe someone can help out where possible.

Satelite recieves signal, enters hub at office. From hub into d-link router with omni directional arial attached. Office is 700m from furthest point of desired signal. At desired point of contact there is another d-link with patch reciever attached, and from that d-link I get wifi signal.
At other desired points spread over a 700m radius with arc of 180degrees from the office spans the other places where wifi signal is desired and so the same setup is in place. However the signal varies incredibly, often disconnecting.

I would like to know if it is neccessary in ideal circumstances that we have all these routers and patches in place?

Shouldnt we be able to recieve wifi signal directly from the omni directional?

How would one go about setting this up?

And if anyone has any interesting links to systems/places similar to what i have roughly described and/or if there is anywhere i should look specifically for help.

Many thanks

A:Omni directional wifi setup?

I'd try to boost the signal as much as possible at the primary router.
Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a some examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

[HAO14SD] Outdoor Hi-Gain 14dBi Directional Antenna Kit

For 802.11n applications, this ZyXEL ANT1106 6db omni-directional antenna can be used.

For really long range outdoor applications, this 24dB parabolic WiFi Antenna may be a good choice.

If you have a wireless adapter that doesn't have provisions for an external antenna, one adapter that I've had good luck with is a Rosewill RNX-G1 USB Wireless Adapter. It's feature is that is has a removable antenna and will accommodate replacement antennas.

This is just a sample of available products, many people have hi-gain antennas with similar specifications, but I haven't seen any other suppliers of signal boosters.

Hi folks,

I am looking at a high gain antenna to boost signal so it can reach thru a couple of walls down the hall. I was looking at an omnidirectional antenna (an outdoor whip style) which has 15db and a horizontal range of 360 degrees, but only 6 degrees vertical. Is the 6 degrees vertical a big problem if the computers i am trying to reach are all on the same floor? Is it ok to use the higher powered outdoor antennas for indoor use? (The indoor ones seem to have much lower db strength).

I am also planning to pick up a 6db desktop omni antenna to place on the back of the wireless pci card to further help my signal.

I could go for antennas with 80 horiz and 80 vertical but they are only 8db..... and i figured the higher db and 360 horiz would prove better. Am i wrong?

A:Question about Omni vs Directional Antennas

If you need to get more vertical out of the antenna, just angle it, though that could raise the swr of the antenna, which will lower the signal a bit.

Indoor antennas have a lower gain because they are just meant to boost the signal to give you better signal through the whole house, or to reach one end to the other, if its a big house), the outdoor antenna is usually used when people are trying to use their wireless in the backyard, or in an outbuilding, maybe sharing with a neighbor.

I have a 15db omni antenna with 0 degree downltilt attached to a DWL-800 Access Point. The signal is only reaching about 100ft indoors, and not much more outdoors. The cable is a 50ft LMR 400 with direct RP-SMA connector (no pigtail).

The tip of the antenna is currently about 10ft from the peak of the roof.

would tilting the antenna in the direction i am aiming for help, or is it best to have it completely vertical?

**For the record, i have a cantenna which reaches the 400 yard distance quite nicely to a standard laptop internal wifi card, but the beam is too narrow for buildings on either side of the narrow beam to pick up signal. Perhaps 400 yards is simply too much for the omni?

Is there an antenna out there that is directional but has a wider beam (something like 90 degrees wide)?

A:no range on omni antenna, and wide-beam directionals out there?

The antenna direction is your choice. Feel free to adjust it any way you like.

Directional antennas with beams from 30 to 60 degrees horizontal are quite common. For 90 degrees or more you want to look for something called a "sector antenna" - those have beams from 90 to 180 degrees.

I have a odd situation that has mystified me regarding a printer.
I am running two PCs side-by-side, both are using Win 7. The printer is a Kodak ESP 7 AiO. The printer is cabled to one PC whilst the other PC accesses the printer via the cabled PC. I continually receive an error message on the non-cabled PC stating that Bidirectional support is disabled, the message flashes on and off the screen every five seconds. It's very distracting. The issue here is that the bidirectional support IS enabled on both machines, both machines show a tick in the appropriate box to indicate that this is so. I am able to print from both machines without any problems. Can anyone please suggest how I am able to stop the error message flashing/appearing.
Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi there!
I have recently purchased a second PC, so I have read a couple of online guides and tried constructing my own local network. Although I did manage to get the network to work, I am experiencing a bit of troubles with data communications.

some background info:
From now on, old computer is computer '1' and the new one is computer 'A'.

I have a router connected to the wall, a hub connected to the router, and both computers connected to the hub via LAN. Both computers have the windows XP (I think computer 1 have professional and Computer one have home ed. Not %100 sure.)

The problem is, I can easily browse files which are placed on computer 1 from computer A, but when trying to go the other way around I am getting huge delays (Although it does load after a while). As I've mentioned before, the 2 computers are connected in the exact same manner, in a symmetrical fashion. I didn't manage to find any reason for this weird slow down.

Help anyone?

I'm not sure why you would be using Public for the network location unless your house is in a Public location?

Using the Work or Home network location setting is the way to go here. I'm also not sure why you would use a different subnet than the one your router is using by default?

At any rate, if the Network Discovery setting is not saying set then you have... Read more

Hello to everyone
I am new to these forums and I have come here for help

I installed some Mods for Oblivion and my directional keys Uparrow and leftarrow have some how ended up with multiple functions
Uparrow is also esc, F12, b,n and Windows key
Left arrow is also F2 and PgDown

Ive tried restoring my system, deleting/reinstalling drivers, modifying the registry and even third party freeware like AutoHotkey and Keytweak but nothing works
I just want to reset them back to being up and left (i use the directional keys,numberpad, right shift and right control for all my first person shooters and have to relearn with WSAD something I dont want to have to do)
I am even considering getting another keyboard but somehow I dont think that will solve the problem. I deleted the System32 entries for my keyboard and it stopped functioning altogether. I unplugged and plugged it in again and it set up the system32 (installed generic drivers there and then ) and the keyboard functions again but my problem remains

Please help me if you can. I dont know what else to try
Kind Regards and thanks in advance

A:HELP PLEASE Keyboard Directional Buttons changed

You messed everything up by adding in the Mods. Mods are never recommended for anything. You may have corrupted system files. Uninstall the program and all mods. Then check the keyboard. If you have a microsoft keyboard...get intellitype and it might fix the problem. Modding is always bad.

Dont diss the forum. Alot of issues are resolved but we need time to try and find a way to solve them.

I have a ASA-5505 at the office.

I use Cisco VPN client to connect to the office(a), and also to a client(b) from home(c). Everything works great. Using IPsec/UDP. No problems. I can ping remote machine, RDP, telnet etc.
When I came into the office, hooked up my laptop and tried to do some work through the VPN at clients location (b) I had a strange problem.

The Cisco VPN client connects to client (b) fine, however I am unable to ping any IPs on the clients network, or Telnet into any machines (I get a WinSock error).

I figured there must be misconfiguration in the ASA-5505 that was blocking certain VPN traffic, but still allowing the connection to take place.

I checked out the active syslog and found:

3 Dec 28 2011 13:58:23 305006 x.x.x.x

regular translation creation failed for protocol 50 src inside: dst outside:x.x.x.x

(**where x is the client (b) IP address and is my laptop)

I am not very good with this stuff, but tried a few fixes.

1. I ENABLED IKE for both internal and external connections to the ASA-5505 (was only ENABLED for external before)
2. I made sure IPsec over NAT-T is enabled (as I used IPsec/UDP for client so I am assuming this must be enable with 20 sec keepalive per example I saw online)
3. Opening specific ports from the router to the IP of my laptop ( or telnet port 23

Hi there,

I have a Lexmark x9350 wireless printer, a laptop running Vista Home Edition and a desktop PC running Vista Home premium. The printer is in another room to the desktop due to space and so I would like to print wirelessly from the desktop without having to switch on the laptop first and print via that i.e Desktop -> shared printer on Laptop -> Printer which is what I'm doing now.

The laptop works fine with the printer wirelessly and within the printer properties there is a tick in the bi-directional support checkbox.

The desktop pc however has exactly the same printer driver as the laptop and can detect the printer on the network but the bi-directional support checkbox is unticked and greyed out and so I get the error that Bi-di.. needs to be turned on in order to print. The desktop PC is connecting to the printer via the home network wireless router.

I can only put the difference between one working and the other not down to the laptop having a built in wireless card and so theres no problems when the printer needs to talk back to the laptop where as the desktop is communicating via the router and the printer messages cannot make it through for some reason. Am I right in saying this or is there another explanation? I have already tried an updated driver from the Lexmark website.

Thanks in advance for your time on this.

I'm hoping someone can help me, because this issue has been irritating me for quite some time now. I have two routers, one wireless (Linksys WRT54GS), and the other, a SonicWall Security Appliance TZ170SP. I have computers (wireless/wired) that connect to both of the routers, as well as, a wired network printer that connects to the wireless router. The SonicWall (wired router) is connected to the Internet via a cable modem.

I would like to establish bi-directional communication between the two routers, while maintaining two separate networks, on two separate subnets. I have read many posts regarding similar situations, which all seem to advise connecting the LAN port of one router to the LAN port of the other router (not the WAN port on the second router). When I do this, I lose my internet connection on the wireless router. Most of these scenarios also involve simulating a switched environment on the second router, which would eliminate the possibility of having two separate networks.

Similar scenarios to what I'm trying to accomplish are setup in virtually every enterprise environment. I'm not sure if the fact that I'm using a SOHO (Linksys) router precludes the possibility of accomplishing my goal.

I have setup a website, http://www.interwerks.net/routing that maps out my environment in detail. On this website, you will find screenshots of the various pages of the Management Interfaces that I believe would apply to troubleshooting this issue. I... Read more

A:How to establish bi-directional communication between 2 routers on 2 subnets

Trust me I have carefully read the various other threads regarding similar issue but I couldn’t find what I was looking for.
I have three routers and 2 ISPs but I’d like to focus for now on a configuration with only one ISP provider.

Here is my environment:

Netgear Cable (CBVG834G) wireless router
ON the cable router are connected multimedia type equipments (TV/ IP set top box/ IP amp …) located on the family room
DHCP ON (because I can’t’ get internet connectivity when I assigned Fix IP address … I come to that later)
IP Adress:
DHCP range: 19
Reserved IP : 1292.168.1.10 for the Dlink
4 DEV a connected

D-LINK ( DIR-855) wireless router.
mainly PCs, NAS (x2) located on the first floor.
Lan IP Adress:
DHCP range: / 120
WAN Ip address :
6 PCs are connected

Everything works fine from an internet connectivity standpoint:

DEVx can connect to internet fine
PCx can connect to internet
PCx can access DEVx
Now the issue DEVx can’t access resources from PCx!

I’d love to try and solve the issue with this setup. And I would welcome help as I would prefer keeping separate subnets!

But I know you will mention the JohnWill Approach.
I’ve tried the famous “Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together” made by JohnWill but I don’t seem to find a way to set my D-LINK as simple switch .

How is your current speed compared to your "quoted" speed? If you're being quoted 3 or 4mbps and only getting 1 or 2; then it's possible this device will improve your speed. Possible.

If you're getting your quoted speed, or quite close to it, you won't get anything more by putting a booster on there.

Until one day out of nowhere, they stop working totally, no up or left directional keys working, and navigating through the hard disk had never been slower before. Copying or opening a folder became like the worst thing to do ever. I assumed again that it was because of windows or something, formatted and reinstalled windows, and again its still doing the same thing.what do i do ?

This is to inform you that i have purchased HP Omni 10 last year and unable to use it for a single day with satisfaction. Touch and motherboard has been changed during warranty period but still the issue comes with new touch.   This product is like a garbage for me and i will not recomend this product to anybody. I want complete replacement of my product or return my money. Otherwise i will esclate this to the consumer court. Thanks Gurpreet Singh

I am not sure if I should ask here or in the laptop section since it is classified as a desktop, but the innards are more along the lines of laptop components. I have an Omni 100-5155 and looking for any upgrade options I may have (I do realize those options are extremely limited). I've already maxed the RAM to 8Gb, but am looking for CPU, hard drive and wireless possibilities. So my questions -What is the max capacity hard drive the motherboard will accept? I am hoping to also replace the optical drive with a hard drive caddy. Are SSD's and/or SSD/HDD hybrids supported? Can the PCI Express x1 802.11 b/g/n card be replaced by this? (to match my router's ability)Intel 3160 Dual Band Wireless AC + Bluetooth Mini PCIe card Supports 2.4 and 5.8Ghz B/G/N/AC BandsOr would I be better off getting a wireless USB dongle (if that would even work)? Any CPU suggestions or same form factor motherboard upgrade replacement possibility? I know my USB 3, better graphics and Gb WLAN dreams will have to wait until I've finished saving for a moderate gaming rig build, but I thought since I'm likely to be upgrading to Win 10 soon I should try to get the most I can out of this system... which will be eventually handed down to the nephews, hopefully within the year.  Any and all helpful suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks. For easier reference -Omni 100-5155 specsMotherboard specs

I added a micro sd card to increase the stoarge capacity of my omni 10.  I thought the card that was previously installed was a "space filler", I was not aware that it contained the recovery system. Somehow out of nowhere, bitlocker was installed on my notebook, and my device begain vibrating and indicating that it had crashed.  So I rebooted it, and was unable to continue wihtout inputting the bitlocker password which I don't have.  There was very little by way of outside software on the device, so I decided to recover the unit, only to find out that I had discarded the micro sd recovery disk.  I do have all the original paperwork, and found my product number serial number and so forth.  I downloaded a windows 8.1 from HP website, but it wouldn't install, because the version I downloaded didn't match the id on the motherboard. I have now ordered a new recovery disk from ebay for $5, and will attempt to recover the system, I don't know what will be left of the tablet, but I can live with it whatever it is.  I had already installed Office 2016 on the device so I could have my current version of outlook on all my devices, and can reinstall it.  My only question is what is on the motherboard, and how can I know it.  All I know is it is windows 8.1 I' think, and I don't know what version it is  or even if there are multiple versions.  I can't find an answer on the website, and can't locate a contact for custome...

It is Windows 8.1 Standard (Home) 32 bit. HP does not make Windows 8.1 available for download so you likely got a retail version from Microsoft. But what is odd is that Windows 8.1 Home does not have bitlocker...only Pro version so that is a mystery.  From here I cannot really understand what you are asking.   The exact model number of the laptop or Product Number would help tremendously. If the recovery disk you got for $5 is for the correct model series it should work but will provide a bare factory reinstall.

I currently own an All-In-One HP Omni 27 PC. For about 6 months now, the monitor has gone dark. The light at the top turns on and the fans will run, but the monitor will not come on or show the HP loading screen. I have tried the BIOS fix, but once completed, my computer does not reset like the instructions say it should. Has anyone else had this problem or know of a solution?Thanks,Noah

I got a HP Omni 27-1210xt into my shop last week and it had a bad hard drive, so i replaced the drive with the exact model and blew out the dust while i had it apart and after i put it all back together the video never displays, it did once but the unit shut off like 10 seconds after it came up, the other times you can hear the fans and the system running but just never shows a video, I have removed the memory and turned it on and it beeps so i would only say it rules out the motherboard or processor, so I'm looking for it to be video. Now I have located the processor but I do not see where the video is on this unit, doesn't appear to tbe onboard, maybe under some of the other covers? I'm about to strip it down some more. Any trouble shooting tips or ideas guys?
