    New repeating error message

    Thank you...this was the first one that popped up for me..went through a couple of others however it wasn't clear. Are there any downsides of turning off aiProtect? Is the "basic" firewall good enough? Appreciate the patience with a non-technical amateur. Thx.

    New repeating error message

    I'm using an RT-AC190P and noticed today the same messages. I have two Netgear access points set up (wired) to bring wi-fi to other parts of the house so am not using the router's AIMesh option. Can't seem to locate anything on the internet about what this message means. (I have IP addresses...

    strange issues with guest network and Surface Dock and question re: network services filters

    I thought that's what I was doing by adding the network services filter for both the Surface's Ethernet connection and the wi-fi connection. However @ColinTaylor says network services filter won't work. What do you mean by "route the one you want to stop"? Perhaps I can find the appropriate...

    strange issues with guest network and Surface Dock and question re: network services filters

    Thx...didn't know that. Is there any way to prevent the Surface from accessing other devices on the LAN? When I first set it up, I disabled the WiFi adapter and started getting dropouts. I turned it back on thinking that perhaps the Surface would switch to wi-fi. Unfortunately, it does...

    strange issues with guest network and Surface Dock and question re: network services filters

    I have a strange issue with my setup and would like help to resolve it and make sure I've set up network services filters correctly. Apologies in advance for the long description of my setup. I'm using an RT-AC1900P router running the lastest firmware (3.0.0.4.385_20490). It is my main router...

    how can I isolate music server from other devices on my LAN?

    I have a music streamer on my LAN and would like to limit it's access to only the NAS drive which hosts my music files. The device, Auralic Aries, is controlled by an app on my iPhone and iPad. Because the manufacturer updates firmware automatically and there is no way to turn off this...

    how do I restrict music streamer's access to certain devices on my LAN

    I have a Auralic Aries music streamer connected (wirelessly and wired) to my home network and would like to "isolate" it's access to a NAS drive containing music files. I control the Aries through an iPhone and iPad app. I'm not quite sure how to do this or if it's even possible using my set...

    ASUS RT-AC1900P Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router Reviewed

    The Asus router can do this if memory servers me. I looked searched the Asus forums a while back ago to run a test. First, don't use the Parent Controls...turn them off. (Not sure why but that's what the posts on the Asus forums indicated.) Second, go the Firewall tab and then the Networks...

    ASUS RT-AC1900P Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router Reviewed

    SoCalReviews, Thx for your perspective. I tried the Linksys but ended up returning it...interface not as good and appeared less flexible. I also didn't like the concept of using an app to manage parental controls and other aspects of the router. I exchanged the first 1900P for a new one...

    ASUS RT-AC1900P Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router Reviewed

    First, thank you for testing equipment and the networking tips. I've learned quite a lot as a consumer from reading your site. Last week I purchased the AC-1900P based on the router rankings. Went to set up today and ran into several issues and was wondering if others had experienced them...
