How can I limit repeater to wired connections (and disable outgoing wifi)?

Q: How can I limit repeater to wired connections (and disable outgoing wifi)?

My WLAN, through which all my devices are connected, is too far from my non-wifi enabled CCTV DVR, which requires a wired connection.

I have hooked up a repeater to my DVR, which works fine. The only problem is, devices closer to the repeater than to the main wifi router, although showing a full signal from the repeater, have no internet connectivity. I cannot force the devices to connect to the main wifi router because it shares the same access point name with the repeater.

Unless there is a way to 1) override the access point name of either and still maintain the connection, or 2) fix the internet connectivity for the repeater's wifi signal (which may still be problematic if it keeps switching between the two), how can I disable the repeater's outgoing wifi signal while maintaining its connection to the main wifi router to ensure connectivity is achieved via the wired connection between DVR and repeater?

Or perhaps limit the outgoing connection speed? I don't really want to limit both incoming and outgoing as Incoming is never a problem for me.

Is there a way to put a speed limit or to not allow quite as many connections going out of my system (or router)?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi all
i use a laptop that has Ethernet and WiFi cards.
usually i use WiFi only as default internet source , but when i connect the Ethernet cable-> the WiFi network doesn't stop or shut down automatically.
-in such situation does really 2 network act parallel?
-is there a way to "tell" windows that when Ethernet network is on , WiFi network adopter will close it self?
(i don't want to Disabling/enabling in device manager every time)
Thanx!

edit:
i tried this but didn't work ...

"You can change the order, in which Windows connects to different network adapters, to do this go to the Network Connections window, there
press Alt
select Advanced > Advanced connections
open the Adapters and Bindings Tab
There you can change the order of the network adapters, in your case, try placing your LAN connection to the top of the list, this should cause windows to use the braodband Ethernet connection when it's available and only go via wireless when not."

Not normally. It would take special software to make that happen and probably a special router.

You might check to see if the Wireless Network Adapter has a "disable upon wired connect" setting.

Based on an article on the 'Lifehacker' website I noticed an article on how to use an old router as a repeater. I was looking at eBay and noticed something called, "Wireless-N WiFi Repeater Router Signal Range Extender Amplifier 300Mbps" which appears very small, and is just inserted in your USB port of your laptop.
This begged the question: At US$ 13 with shipping included perhaps it is better to buy this as opposed to converting my old ''D-link DIR-300" in a repeater, especially if doing so is a real hassle.
Hence trusting you guys here I thought I'd ask you if you think there are advantages and disadvantages with one or the other.
For ex. a disdvantage to using my old router as a repeater is that it's not portable
an advantage (sort of) is it's free
the eBay one at this price range seems to have 2 different models of brands unknown to me--China
-1- VOnets and -2- LB-Liink (seems to be imitating the 'D-Link' logo)
[This 2nd 1 seems to come in 2 slightly different definitions 'USB Wifi Router AP Wireless N repeater Adapter WLAN Range Extender F' or 'USB Wireless WLAN WiFi Router AP Client Repeater Adapter SY']
You opinion is valued. Thanks :-)

Hello everyone,

I've been researching this for about an hour trying to figure out the best way to do this.

I'm an EMT and I work 24 hour shifts. We have a station in a business complex and there is a restaurant across the street with free wifi. We can connect to it, but barely. We get low speed and frequent disconnects. They know we use it and they don't mind. We pretty much eat there daily anyway.

I had an old omni directional antenna laying around, and made a cantenna with it. What I want to do is buy a cheap router with two antennas and replace one of the antennas with the cantenna. That way I could use the cantenna to reach the free wifi, and the non-directional antenna to broadcast to our station.

Now, I also have an xbox in the station that I would like to connect to the same router through ethernet.

So, my question is, can I connect my xbox through ethernet to the same router I'm using as a repeater? Thats what I couldn't find info on. If I can't then I'll probably end up buying a xbox wireless dongle and hooking up my cantenna to it.

Thanks!

Every time the wired connections on the network, a Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 laptop, connect to the internet, all the wireless connections on the 2.4G band can no longer connect to the internet.

Hello!

3 times in the last couple of weeks, I have had Mcafee Net Guard pop up and notify me that it has blocked outgoing connections to some odd IP addresses, 2 of which are located in the Seychelles, which I can't think my computer would have any reason to connect to. I have attached an image of the messages I get, along with an image of my blocked incoming connections log at the same time as the second outgoing connection attempt, which might be related. I did check on the Mcafee forums but I was advised to come here. I have run full system scans using Mcafee, Avira free, Malwarebytes, Windows Defender and Mcafee GetSusp, but they have all turned up nothing, except Avira came up with a load of warnings, mostly that access was denied to folders that don't exist, but no detections were made, and GetSusp, which said there were 23 suspicious and 4 unknown files, but I can account for all of them. All scans were run in safe mode. I System Restored to the earliest point possible, but I have had an outgoing connection attempt to the Seychelles since then, so the problem still persists.

I should add that while running dds.scr, Windows Defender detected mbr.sys in the Temp folder and asked to Permit or Deny. I did nothing and dds.scr finished anyway. I wasn't sure whether this is to do with dds.scr or not, so since dds.scr finished anyway I have left it as it is.

With previous versions there was a provision to do so!
I dont think it's possible to do so with the current version!

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I will start apologizing because I didn't know I had to run gmer and other tools before running combofix. I ran it over a friend advice without knowing I had to do some previous steps.

I have a PC that seemed to be infected. Malwarebytes detected outgoing connections attempts to 93.158.114.37 but it blocked them. After running a lot of antimalware/antivirus tools like SEP, Malwarebytes, Radix, Sophos, etc, I ran combofix.

Outgoing connection attempts were completely random. Some days there were attempts and some others no attempt was made. The only thing I could deduce from using TCPView, is that those attempts were only made when IE or Firefox were running, but they were completely random, there didn't seem to be any other trigger.

After running Combofix I noticed three things:

1. Two radmin files were deleted. I restored them because we are using radmin.
2. After my profile was loaded, I had an error: "error loading c:\documents and settings\slicardie\configuracion local\Temp\mmcbmgr.dll" (Windows is in Spanish). This is completely odd, it may have been an infected file although it wasn't detected as such by previous scans from SEP, MBAM, etc.
3. After opening IE, it asked to be the default web browser although it has always been.

Here you have the log. Please let me know if you need anything else.

First I want to say that I've scanned my computer with my antivirus software and used two online virus scanners and my computer is clean. I've also scanned it with spyware/adware programs such as Ad-Aware and a few online spyware scanners and my computer is clean. I have a firewall properly installed/configured and have had no security problems at all recently.

The problem started around Feb. 10 when I discovered that svchost.exe tries to make outgoing connections to download.microsoft.co (64.215.169.168) every 10 minutes on TCP port 80. I've had svchost blocked by firewall for the past three years and I've never had any problems doing that until Feb. 10. I have Automatic Windows Updates set to disabled/manual as I like to install the updates myself so I know exactly what's going on. In those cases I allow svchost to connect to Microsoft. It appears that the IP address belongs to Global Crossing and not Microsoft which makes me very suspicious. It's also tried making outgoing connections to c7.zedo.com.

I can't figure out why all of a sudden svchost is trying to make this connection and if it's legitimate. It may be no big deal but I'd still like to know what's going on. Does anyone have any ideas?

Last year around this time, svchost was trying to make connections to time.windows.com but the IP address did not belong to Microsoft.

Hello all!We have a compromised machine, and we are having trouble figuring out what is causing the issue.Some background: we received noticed that a machine on our network was sending spam. We viewed the logs in our SonicWall and figured out which PC was doing it. Spyware and Virus Scans (Windows Defender, A-SQUARED Free, Norton Corporate, Panda Software Online, Trend Micro Housecall) found a couple adware items and tracking cookies, but nothing to indicate a rogue program). We added a rule to our firewall to only allow SMTP traffic from our legitimate server, which blocked the affected machine from causing that trouble.However, now I see another issue based on the connections monitor in our firewall.

Hello.
 
I have recently upgraded to Avast! Internet Security 2016, which comes with the Avast! firewall. I was looking at my network connections (through the Avast! interface) and noticed a few unknown IP addresses under svchost.exe and System. I tried right-clicking the IP addresses under each of those and clicking 'Get details' but when I do I am presented with the following message:
 

 
These connections may be completely normal (and I suspect they are), but I am not too experienced and thought it was best to post here just in case.

Hello, this is a mostly a question i have for firewalls. Let's say for example you use an internet security suite like EIS and you've set the outgoing connections to block. If a malware manages to get through all the guards including behavior blocker and for example that malware is a keylogger, by the time it tries to "communicate" it will be blocked because the outgoing connections are set to block right? If that's true, is this one of the reasons why it's good to have a firewall installed that monitors outgoing connections or use an internet security suite/having a separate firewall, regardless if you are a home user or not?

Yes. Whether new app connects are notified or blocked - outbound firewall monitoring is a great idea; Windows firewall is typically enough, if you have outbound connection notification (bare minimum add BiniSoft's Windows Firewall Control - or equivalent).

Hi,

One thing I have always been missing from the Windows Firewall is and option to make it prompt if I want to allow and outgoing connection. Right now it does that with ingoing connections only.

But for outgoing, the options are either to allow all or block all. Not prompt for a choice.

Did some google'ing and found this Windows Firewall Control. From what I can see, that little addon/program will make it so that the Windows Firewall will prompt on outgoing connections as well. Just want I want.

My question now is, has anyone tried it before? Does it work as it's supposed to do? Does it work with Windows 8?

Thanks.

Hello,
I am running Win7 Pro virtually and have Remote Desktop configured to only allow 1 concurrent connection. This works great when the one user is logged in, however if the user just disconnects (so programs are running), another user is able
to connect to that machine. Is there a way to fix this so even if the machine is just disconnected, it should not allow any one (except the disconnected user) to log in? This used to work fine when we were on WinXP, but it seems like Win7 changed this.
I'm assuming Win7 Pro license doesn't allow this either, however it seems to work. I have also gone into Group Policy configured the two settings: Limit number of connections to 1 and Restrict RDS users to a single RDS session to Enabled, but in vain. Any
help or advice to fix this is appreciated.
Thank you,

Hi Sau,
Thanks for your clear description.
If a user specifies a different program to start when the user connects to the RD Session Host server, a new session will be created on the RD Session Host server for the user, even if the RD Session Host server is configured to restrict users
to a single session.

2) How do I force my portable devices to connect to the repeater rather than the router? When I go to the Windows 7 "connect" page I see only one network choice (because they are sharing the same name). Sometimes the portable devices will connect to the router other times they will connect to the repeater.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

Isn't that the point of having a Repeater? To connect to the stronger signal?

Hey all,

Can someone school me please? I have a switch box upstairs with my cable modem and a wifi router. Downstairs I have a PC that is hardwired to the wifi router. My PC has a WIFI N PCI card installed into it (was forced to use wireless connection until I had a cat 5 jack dropped). My question is, can I make the WIFI card in my PC act as a repeater to the WIFI router upstairs? Reason I ask, the WIFI router upstairs doesn't get great coverage all over my house and if possible, I would like to make my PC repeat the WIFI signal.

Can that be done easily?

A:PCI WIFI card as repeater?

On paper, it can be done with some heavy modification. The wireless card would need two create two independent connections (one from the router to the pc, and a second from the pc to the next device). Since 99% of cards do not do that out of the box (and I am not certain any can be made to do that), I don't think it's possible.

I promise you it is much easier to buy a wireless ap/bridge for around $50-100 US. I have the D-Link DAP-1522 and it works like a beastly charm as both a repeater or a bridge. I currently use it in bridge mode for my Sony BD player and DiSH Network HD box (to pull guide info faster, etc). I can manage its settings via its ip (mine is 192.168.0.50).

i have a netgear router which doesn't cover, wirelessly, well my house. I've just added a d-link DAP-1360 AP as a repeater. Since I've added it, the coverge problems are history, all the computers, wired and wireless, are able to connect to the internet. However, homegroup doesn't work any more. I can't share files between the computers. How can I fix it?

It may be that you will need to recreate your homegroup from scratch. Give it a go and see if solves the issue.

Hi Everyone,
I'm trying to help a friend implement some technology for a working apple farm. They are using a linksys WRT54G router with a cable modem, the wifi in the main building works great. We want to extend the wireless signal to a warehouse about 1/4 mile away, we have line of sight. We've been referring to a book; "Wi-Fi Toys" by Mike Outmesguine. The book refers to both bridging and repeating, but the configuration of each is not clear to me. They've purchased long range directional antenna's and two linksys WAP54G's to be used as the downlink and access point. I've tried to configure them (referring to the book and the linksys website) as wireless repeaters and wireless bridges but I've had no luck. Has anyone set this up before (?), I'd really appreciate any coaching you can provide.
Thank you,
Jeff

Hey everyone.

I used to have an old wifi but it's that old the software I used to use to set it up doesn't even run under 7. This isn't really my problem though since I was pretty sure I'd have to update anyway. It's unlikely it would be able to repeat a signal from an N router let alone use anything better then WEP.

Anyway. I was looking for suggestions on getting a good repeater. I saw this one: Best Wireless Repeater | Wifi Repeaters Boosters and Range Extenders which looks pretty good. I've never used anything from Amped before though so I'm kind of tempted to go for a Netgear or something instead.

I was also considering buying a router and setting DD-WRT up but I don't know how they compare?

Cheers for any advice.

I can't say I have heard of Amped before (besides the drink...), but at work we have had good success with Hawking range extenders.

does anyone make a wifi repeater that has a "remote antenna"?

im wanting to extend my wifi signal so I can have internet in my garage. right now I can get a signal if the door is open, but its a metal building so if I shut the door theres no signal. not to mention the signal isnt that great when its there anyways.

I would like to have the repeater itself in the garage, and have the pickup antenna for it right outside of the building if possible?

can this be done? thanks
