    ASUS RT-AC68U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.380.7378

    I was running 7266 in the AP mode without much issues. After updating the firmware to the current version 7378, wifi was a bit flaky even after a few reboots. My NestCam was not able to keep the connection reliably to the guest wifi connection. The issues continued for a couple days, I was...

    WNDR3700 router & AC68U AP combo

    That is good to know. I would definitely try swapping them one of these days. I just need to figure out a better wiring management. Thanks.

    WNDR3700 router & AC68U AP combo

    I have been using a Netgear WNDR3700 v1 with DD-WRT for a while. During the holidays, I decided to add ASUS AC68U (with the latest ASUS firmware) as an AP for now. I am running the WNDR3700 as a main wireless router. The new fancy (at least to me) AC68U is configured as an AP with the updated...

    HomePlug 500 interoperability

    I ordered one. I will report back the result when I get it configured. It is going to replace one of my 5Ghz wireless bridge (wndr3700 bridge <-> wnhde111).

    HomePlug 500 interoperability

    I have a set of Netgear 5001 adapters right now to connect down/upstairs. I am thinking of adding a ZyXEL 4-port adapter (PLA4225). Anyone know if they inter-operate well? ZyXEL unit is not certified, but they are both based on the same Atheros chipsets. I can always get a Netgear Nano...

    Netgear XAV5001 security status

    How do I verify the security mode is working? I went through the security pairing process by holding down the security button, the LED blinking did not start until I release the button. I did the same on the other unit to make it started blinking. It turned solid green in about a minute or...

    Power adapter reliability of a switch

    Follow up to my GS108 I had to talk to Netgear's tech support & RMA departments a few times. They could definitely streamline the handoffs from one department to another. I got an RMA for the main unit since the power adapter's warranty was expired. I chose a slow swap method since I had old...

    Power adapter reliability of a switch

    Now that I scanned the forum & interweb, I am not so sure the problem is the power adapter. I have had two power adapters replaced for my ProSafe devices before (FWAG wireless router & 4-port switch) on warranty before, so I just assumed the issue on the GS108 is the adapter again...

    Power adapter reliability of a switch

    My Netgear GS108 switch's power adapter is flaking. That is what I suspect, but it could be the switch itself. I had another ProSafe power adapter fail before in a similar way. The switch is still under warranty so I would get a replacement eventually, but I am thinking I should get a new...

    Is it possible to setup more than one bridge using WNHDE111?

    I would think multiple client mode bridges would work, but I was not sure if that would affect the overall throughput at the AP. This is why I was even considering a parallel set of WNHDE111s configured at different channel & ssid to minimize the interference. I was just wondering if anyone...

    Is it possible to setup more than one bridge using WNHDE111?

    I have a pair of WNHDE111s (WNHDEB111 actually) to bridge my office & living room. Works well enough for streaming HD content. I was wondering if I can add another WNHDE111 bridge to reach my den like the following: WNHDE111 (ap) ---------------------- WNHDE111 (br) |...

    Setting up a 11n wireless bridge

    I finally took a plunge to replace my wireless bridge with Netgear WNHDEB111 connected in n-mode. So far so good. The wireless status page is indicating the AP & bridge are connected at about 50% signal strength, but the rate is as high as 81 Mb/s, normally settling between 27 & 54. I did...

    Setting up a 11n wireless bridge

    I just saw the following article popup in my RSS feed, so I thought I should follow up in my experiment/experience with the powerline bridge: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30538/84 I was lucky enough to find all three powerline units I was targeting at local Frys. I...

    Building a HTPC cloud for home

    As a HTPC enthusiast, I have a bunch of PCs, NASes & networking gears in my home. My current project is to upgrade the connection speed between my home office (work/gaming PCs) & living room (HTPC) so I can transfer/stream data faster than a typical wireless 11g connection. While I was...

    Setting up a 11n wireless bridge

    I started looking around for these powerline bridges. I found 3 possible candidates that use "200 Mbps" tech to provide a max 85 Mbps (so why these devices are not sold as 85 Mbps?) 1. D-Link DHP-301 2. Netgear HDXB101 3. Linksys PLK200 They are all around $140, slightly cheaper than the...
