Hi all,

I have 2 adapter, same model same speed. When I use "route print" command to check the table, they are the same metric.

I need to use the designated adapter to connect a server. How can I make sure this adapter is higher priority in the route table. 
Remark: This PC is not allow to set the route table. I have to use the automatic metric algorithm.

Hi,

I'm definitely not a networking expert but I now wish I was. I have to create a vlan for some external equipment to use our network and they need specific ip addresses. The switches are Netgear FSM's which do apparently support managed vlans (I think that's important). I think I can set up a vlan but cannot see what the iprange will be for them to connect to. Maybe I'm totally confused. Can anyone help or advise me where to look for help? I have the manuals from the switches but they seem to make little sense to me.
Thanks for any help.

I have had windows 7 for a few weeks and every time the PC is rebooted the Metric for both the Lan (172.17) and Wifi(192.169)goes back to 20, the Lan is set to Automatic and the wifi is set to 10, has anybody seen this problem before?

Active Routes:
Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric

A:problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

Sounds quite bizzare, Windows assigns a lower metric to the gateway it can communicate the fastest with, but in this case both have been assigned 20.
If you've manually assigned a gateway and metric you should see that in the list of persistent routes.

I wonder if your issue is similar to that in http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/47280-how-configure-multiple-gateways.html

I'm stumped and have emailed MS as it works as expected in Win XP

Hi!
I have a question that I can't find the answer for, I've been searching like crazy but keep finding the same responses which have in my case proven useless.
The situation is this: I have one router and one computer, the computer has two network interface cards which are both connected to the router and given IP addresses. I have made the metrics in Windows such that normal traffic SHOULD always choose NIC 1 and I have in the application "Tixati" set it manually to use NIC 2. I have then set my firewall to only allow the application "Tixati" to use NIC 2 while blocking it from using NIC 1. So in theory everything on my computer should use NIC 1 except "Tixati" which should use NIC 2.
The problem: The issue is that for some reason Windows will sometimes think it's a good idea to just straight up switch over to using NIC 2 for ALL traffic, even though it has a waaaay higher metric (static permanent routes) and the firewall is blocking access for the applications on that interface, which results in the applications being straight up blocked. This is temporarily solved by disabling and enabling NIC 1... Until it happens again.
The cause: I just straight up don't know, I do however think it has something to do with Windows probably trying to use a different NIC at the slightest hint of an issue with the main NIC, it often happens during web browsing and I even found one specific website that seemingly caused this issue every time I reloaded...

Hello,

Lately, I've noticed all of my applications (Word, Photoshop, etc.) use the metric system of measurement. I'm not sure why this started, but I'd like it to go back to the imperial system. Do you know how I can change this default setting? Thanks!

Chris

A:Metric system!

I don't know about Photoshop, but in Word you can go to

Tools -> Options -> General tab and check that the measurement units are in inches

Entering "measurement" in Windows Help gained this information:

To change the way your computer displays numbers
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
On the Numbers tab, specify any changes you want to make.
Among items you can change are the decimal symbol and list separator, the format used for negative numbers and leading zeros, and the measurement system (U.S. or metric).

Note

To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.

Hi,

I'm looking for an solution for an random issue on my clients computers (Windows 7 or 10).
They connected to an business vpn with Juniper network connect.
As usual, to be sure the computer use the vpn network to make dns reolution etc... the virtual network card created by juniper is using metric 1 to have the top priority.
That's working well since 1 or 2 years.
For an unknown reason When they connect to the vpn some computers keep the internet gateway instead of using the one provided by juniper vpn...
The solution we've found is to edit the juniper metric from 1 to 2 and after ipconfig /flushdns the route table is using the vpn gateway..the pb is, juniper create an virtual card each connections, so it is deleted when the users disconnect his vpn session.
I don't know why but the computers seems not update the route table when connecting to vpn..
We tried :
 - changing from ethernet to wireless or 3G/4G internet source
 - change the network card order in advanced parameters from the networking center..
 - route -f is not workingg

Do you have any idea..?

Hey guys,
I am using a 3G modem (Virgin Mobile MC760). In short; I have 2 connections; 1 is wired ethernet and the other is this 3G modem. I want to be able to use the 3G modem in a guest Vmware system while still using my regular ethernet for everything else in the host. (Unfortunately this modem doesn't work in VM so I am stuck having 2 internet connections in Win7 and trying to route this).

I have read up on metric values but heres the problem. I set the ethernet for a metric value of 1 and the 3g connection as 9999, ethernet alone works fine, as soon as I connect the 3g modem it takes priority and changes my metric value of the ethernet higher and creates a 0.0.0.0 default gateway, when my ethernet is 192.168.1.1. The only way around this is if I disconnect my ethernet and reconnect it, it will then take priority and have both be connected and use ethernet.

Is there any solution to this?

Hi, I'm new to this forum, and hope to solve my problem with some expert guidance.

The company I work for has recently gotten a new Internet connection at their farm across the street. Originally the time clock was placed there and monitored over the LAN on the computer that I am at right now. Now that there is a new connection I need to know how to connect the time clock on the other internet connection to this PC. Networking has never been my strong suit. any help would be appreciated!

-Bumbers

P.S. The time Clock is an anviz EP300 and the PC is running windows 8.1
 

A:Solved: Connect Bio-metric time clock to another network?

Hi Bumbers, and welcome to TSG.

Does the new connection at the other building have at least one static public IP address? If not, things may get a bit more complicated.

Beyond that, you will need to set up whatever modems and routers are being used across the street to port forward from the Internet public IP address to the private IP address of the time clock on the LAN. Having the time clock use a static IP address on the LAN, rather than get its IP address via DHCP would also simplify things.

It appeared to me that only registered users on the Anviz web site can download product manuals. I have no idea if or how the time clock can be properly configured to use a static IP address, the port numbers used, or the type of security it offers. Once you have port forwarding configured, the time clock will be exposed to attacks from the Internet.

After you have everything configured at the other location, you should be able to use the public IP address of the other location to access the clock from your location.

Hi,
Needing a little bit of help. I've got a XenServer which one of the VM's has a virtual VLAN adapter running on VLAN 7. I'd like to enable on our Netgear Prosafe switch to have that link from the server access the network, and the VLAN from the VM only access another device on VLAN 7..

In a little more detail this is the setup..

We have Kerio Control running in a XenServer VM.
The server has two physical network interfaces, eth0 goes directly to a modem/router. eth1 goes to the LAN.

I can create a VLAN adapter in Kerio (which I've done) which is on eth1. I'd like that VLAN to go to our secondary modem/router as a failover connection in kerio rather than connecting to the LAN at all..

the secondary modem/router cannot have ANY access to the LAN, just the VLAN7. I've tried setting up tagged and untagged ports in the switch but to be honest, I haven't really played around with VLAN's and am unable to get the setup to work..

Suggestions?

Q: VLan

My company is getting too big for our router, so to speak.
I have it giving out 100 DHCP addresses (divided amongst lan, wireless, and phones, not to mention guests), and reserve the rest for internal items such as printers, the phone system, and network hardware, servers, as well as virtual pc's.

Anyways, since we now occupy space in a building next door, and may soon take more space, I think I need to be ahead of things here. I was thinking about a Vlan system between the offices but I don't know much about them.

What I want in the end is that I get a range of IP's, and that everyone in both buildings can easily see the servers and printers, and internet.

I'm currently using simple gear - nothing managed or high end. I've used managed switches for clients, just never needed them in the office before.

The modem connects to the router (RV016) which connects to a Barracuda WebFilter 310 which connects to the main switches (D-Link DGS1024D). There's a wireless AP in each building.

I'll be gone for vacation starting Thursday but I'll be checking back as time allows. I just wanted to get this started before I forgot

Any and all ideas are appreciated.

Many thanks.

Hai,
I have two cisco switches(24 ports each) stacked together. I wanted to implemet four vlans where vlan 1 and 3 alone should communicate with each other. vlan 2 and 4 should not speak with any other vlan's and in between them.

Please advise.....
 

A:vlan's in switches

VLAN 2 and 4 part is very easy.

(Depending on version of switch)

Connect an interface (Interface 1) between the two switches with crossover cable.

On interface between switches:
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

On access ports:
switchport acc vlan x (where x is the VLAN you want)

For VLAN 1 and 3 to talk to each other, you're going to need a router. I'm assuming the switches you have aren't layer 3 capable.

Hi All,

I'm having a strange problem and i don't know what the problem is.....
I have a Mikrotik (RouterOS) vm on my HP Server. The network layout is as follows:

Mikrotik -> TP-Link Router (Acting as a switch + AP) -> Buffalo Router (Acting as a switch + AP).

When i remove the TP-Link router i can connect to VLAN 2 and ping things. When the TP-LINK is back in the network i can't reach VLAN 2 on the Mikrotik and can't ping (Network unreachable). I thought it was the MTU size, but when i do :

ping 192.168.2.1 -l 2048 it works great.

Does somebody know what is going wrong here?
 

A:MTU + VLAN not working

Things are not adding up here. Changing the MTU (maximum transmission unit) will not affect a switch's ability to deal with VLAN (802.1q) tagged frames. There are a number of different VLAN implementations out there. The first type of VLAN is port based or local only to the switch. If you define a port on a switch say for VLAN 2, traffic entering that port will be classified for VLAN 2 and will go to any port on that switch designated for VLAN 2. But if you connect another switch which only supports port based VLANs, the VLAN definitions will not transfer over to the second switch.

The next type of VLAN used on switches and the one most used by managed/enterprise switches are tag based VLANs or its IEEE reference of 802.1q. The advent of 802.1q VLAN tagging allowed VLANs to propagate between switches and be used to maintain traffic separation and enforcement. If you create the same VLAN 2 on one switch, the traffic which traverses to the second switch will be sent out to ports which are assigned to VLAN 2. How this is done is by altering the Ethernet frame by inserting a 4 byte data field. This 4 byte data field defines the VLAN ID the Ethernet frame is to be assigned to. Here's a diagram of an Ethernet frame without and with the 802.1q header inserted into the frame:

If a switch doesn't support 802.1q VLAN tagging, it will think a 802.1q tagged Ethernet frame is a malformed frame and will drop it. When you adjust the MTU of an Ethernet device, you are sayi... Read more

Hello all. Been reading up on VLANs as I've never messed with them. I've attached our network diagram. The reason for 2 internet connections is they are in different buildings and it's a separate company, however they still need to communicate with each other over the LAN.

My question is, what is the best way to set this up?

Thanks for your time!

sir i have a problem with my company.i have 3 vlan 172 series,152 series,10 series.
the problem is that for a particular pc when i switch the user in a 152 vlan then internet is only working for 1-2 minute after it is disconnected automatically but local lan is working fine means if i access local pc then it is accessible .
BUT if i change it to 172 series then it is working fine as i change it to 152 series agian it is not working.
same vlan setting working for all other user.
i already checked lan cable ,pc,switch port but problem is same.

troubleshooting vlans is simpler if you redo the configuration all over again to confirm its not the configs.Try doing so then see what happens

Hey guys, currently the small network I'm updating hardware on had a Cisco 3640 that I replaced with a 3825. Got all of that done but the next step is to replace the Foundry 9604 with a HP 3500YL-POE.

We have a private subnet and a public also. Previously there was a need for multiple VLAN's due to having access open for customers at this site, but that has gone away and with it the need for the multiple VLAN's.

Current Switch config looks like this (with some of the useless stuff cut to save reading):
vlan 4095 name DEFAULT-VLAN by port
!
vlan 2 name Staff by port
untagged ethe 1 to 12 ethe 25 to 95 ethe 97 to 100
router-interface ve 2

untagged ethe 96

Hello Everyone,
I have a very small dough in VLans
For example we are using two vlans i.e. Vlan 20 and Vlan 30
Can we use same Network IP's (like 192.168.20.0) for both the Vlans or is there any problem will occurs,

Thank you
Kumar
 

A:Solved: VLan

No problem unless you set up routing between the two VLANs.

Have close to 700 computers on a network but needs a select group of users form two building to access a database from one of the building. Processing time is extremely slow from one of the remote buidling. One of the techs suggested that we create a virtual local area network. How would I go about doing this? There are only 10 users in this group.
 

A:Configuring a VLAN

Perhaps they were referring to a VPN (Virtual Private Network)?

Before deciding what type of VPN is right for your business, it's best to take stock of your current configuration. So I understand this right, you have 3 "buildings" right? The database is stored in building 1, and users from building 2 and 3 need to get access to this database too, right? What is the bandwidth between the buildings? Do the three network segments (one per building I presume) connect directly to each other, or rather, do they all connect directly to the Internet? Or do they not connect to anything at all?

ok so wiki gives this discription...

VLANs are created to provide the segmentation services traditionally provided by routers in LAN configurations. VLANs address issues such as scalability, security, and network management. Routers in VLAN topologies provide broadcast filtering, security, address summarization, and traffic flow management. By definition, switches may not bridge IP traffic between VLANs as it would violate the integrity of the VLAN broadcast domain.
This is also useful if one wants to create multiple Layer 3 networks on the same Layer 2 switch. For example if a DHCP server (which will broadcast its presence) were plugged into a switch it would serve anyone on that switch that was configured to do so. By using VLANs you easily split the network up so some hosts won't use that server and default to Link-local addresses.

Virtual LANs are essentially Layer 2 constructs, compared with IP subnets which are Layer 3 constructs. In an environment employing VLANs, a one-to-one relationship often exists between VLANs and IP subnets, although it is possible to have multiple subnets on one VLAN or have one subnet spread across multiple VLANs. Virtual LANs and IP subnets provide independent Layer 2 and Layer 3 constructs that map to one another and this correspondence is useful during the network design process.

By using VLAN, one can control traffic patterns and react quickly to relocations. VLANs provide the flexibility to adapt to changes in network requiremen... Read more

Good afternoon all.

I have Netgear GSM7224. I have been tasked with the config and I fear I have let my networking skills go abit rusty. Any help on this matter would be great.

I am trying to configure the switch so that each port is it's own separate VLAN and can only talk to the device plugged into that port and port 24 that provies to connnection to a dsl router

Many many thanks in advance for any help.

I support a small Workgroup, and one of the machines has become invisible on the network.
It's a combination of XP Pro and Home. All Dells, all up to date.
The Home machine can see the other two machines, but the Pro couldn't see the Home machine until I threw a bunch of crap at the wall and it miraculously became visible. That included installing SP3 on the Home machine, verifying it was pingable, winsock reset, and running the network setup wizard.
In the process I noticed the only difference in the three machines was the "Realtek Vlan" installed on the pro machine.
Did that have anything to do with the problem (This network has worked perfectly for years) and what is it?

I'm setting up a VLAN (I've never done one before) in my office to prevent internet misuse and also to allow for better network resource management. We came up with 3 groups (each on its own switch):
VLAN 1 - no internet, no email (example)
VLAN 2 - no internet (example)
VLAN 3 - no restrictions
All VLAN's have to be able to see the server all the time, as well as all the network printers (plugged into the switches).

Currently, the "server" is actually a NAS which has worked beautifully for us (a Buffalo TeraStation). The switches in question are (2) D-Link DGS-1024D gigabits and (1) D-Link DES-1024D 10/100.
Each switch is connected to the D-Link DIR-825 Xtreme N Router (I'm not using the wireless portion of it; I have a Wireless AP downstream which works better).

I'm not attached to the hardware so if it has to be changed LMK.

So, my questions are:
1. How can I make sure that everyone sees the Buffalo?
2. Since all the literature I can find on VLAN is a decade old, do I still need secondary software or is it built into a good router?
3. Anything else, please let me know.

Thanks much, in advance

Hi!

I'm having some issues with a new VLAN i'm creating for an IP camera solution. At the moment, it seems to be working (in and outbound communication) only on the core switches, but no contact to the satellite switches. So you can get to the DVR but not the actual cameras. The following are a few running configs and routing tables. If you need any more info, I will be happy to provide.
