Preferred Solution: multiple connections from one IP address

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.)

Hello.

I currently maintain 15 websites, for various different DIY products. Each website has its own email address. We have some one who deals with all email enquiries. We are noticing large amounts of spam. It has been suggested that we use a single email address for all 15 websites.

Other than its going to be a nightmare editing all of the websites to 1 email address, what other pros and cons are there for this idea.
Thanks

Michael
 

Answer:Multiple Email Address' or a single address

not sure how this will reduce the spam necessarily.

a good spam filter may help.
o you know which email is giving you the most spam

I have about 5 websites and emails and get spam in most of them, infact one email I use most of the time for webuse and that gets most of the spam

I have set up a server running Windows Server 2008 which two remote users can dial into using a VPN connection. It works fine unless they are both in the same location, in which case only one of them can connect. If one is connected and the other one tries to log in, it normally kicks out the first connection.

I think this is because the PPTP protocol cannot cope with two VPN connections from the same IP address. Is this correct? If so, what can I do about it? Is there a work around, or would one of the other VPN protocols work? If so, how easy is it to set these up (I'm no IT professional)?

Please note that the remote location in question is in a serviced office, so I'm not in a position to change or play around with their router.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Two VPN connections from the same IP address

You need to set up another VPN server at the remote location and create a site to site VPN tunnel.

My second lap top keeps losing the wireless connection. It seems to happen approx ten minutes after being connected. When I repair the connection the first time it works. Then after that say five minutes later it won't! It says that it is looking for a new IP address from repair then it cannot find it? I am using BT Voyager 2091 and Netgear although apparantly PC world set it up to use XP setting! Ugh sorry not sure what that means. Should all my setting be exactly the same as the first lap top? Or should they be different. I am frightened to change anything as at the moment as I say I can get it to work for 10 minutes!Any help appreciated and thank you PS Sorry tried this question in the beginners section earlier, hope its OK now to try here?

i work for a small company. and we have a T1 line. and also we have a home office in another state. so we use VPN to connect to that location, then use Terminal Services to connect to servers. now, lately we have been having trouble with multiple users connections from the local office to the main office. what seems to happen if one person comes in the morning and connects to VPN, then Terminal Services. BUt if a 2nd person tries to connect after the 1st person has, the 1st person will get booted off. then again, if a 3rd person tries, the 2nd gets booted off.. and i talked to the company who provides our T1 and they said that the router they provide for our incoming phone/internet service should be allowing the similtaneous connections. so i do not know what to do now.

would oe of those Netgear VPN routers that can be bought at Best Buy work? the alternative would be for me to set up a VPN connection to the main office from a router so that every user connected would be VPN in. and BTW, currently the VPN settings does not allow internet access, so i have to set IP setting on the local machine to use the local Gateway, not the VPN gateway... hope that is clear..

I apologize in advance if there's threads for this already.

I have a 5 port D-Link Switch that is only about 2 years old.

I just recently switched from Comcast cable internet (was too inconsistent) to an AT&T DSL 6meg line (there was a good promo). Anyway, I'm realizing I must only have one IP address and I can't connect both my desktop and my playstation3 to the internet at the same time. I think I had figured it out once before a few years ago but I don't remember how.

Any ideas on how I can share an IP address or share the connection on both systems through my switch?

Hi there,

Someone talkin about efficiency in his network a few posts down here. Now I've got a challenge:

I have a network with 5 computers, 1 of it has Windows 2k Server. That server has 3 NIC's, 1 gigabit netcard that connects it to the main LAN with the other 4 computers, 1 100mbps card that connects it to a cable modem, and another 100mbps that connects it to a ADSL router.

The question is how can I put this server as a internet gateway where both connections are used at the same time?


Anyone has any Ideas... I tested a lot of things and the most I got is that it chooses one of the broadband's and forget about the otherone.

Thank you very much!

Please Guys any help is welcome........

Answer:Multiple connections

The short answer is it can't be done.

Windows will always favour one connection over another, I've actually tried to do the same thing myself in the past.

The only way it can be done is on a Broadband connection (IE through a LAN or Wireless) and even then it doesnt work very well.

I've got no idea, but you could always visit a "what is your IP" site and do a reverse lookup on it to find out which ISP it uses - if they would be on different ISPs/Connections.

Hello,
I'm sure this has been asked before some where but I could not come up with anything on search. I will try to provide as much detail and information as possible. I just purchased the Intel VT Quad network adapter without realizing it didn't have teaming support. Now brings me to my question.

I want to use 1 LAN connection (Intel(R) Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapter) for all Internet content while using another LAN (Intel(R) Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapter #3) for local purposes (link between my FreeNAS server). I have spent several hours in route table trying to work my way through setting up a static route but I'm having some trouble. Can anyone provide some assistance with adding a static route for interface 19 (Intel(R) Gigabit VT Quad Port Server Adapter #3)? Bellow is my route print.

All you have to do is put a default route on adapter 1, don't put a default route on adapter 2 then change the metric for adapter 2 to something below 10. Or use Server 2012 (R2) and team them inside windows.

I'm very new to networking and had a question that hopefully has a very simple answer.
 
I use a VPN which means all my internet traffic should hop to the VPN server meaning I'll only see one operating IP in all my network monitoring software.
 
However, when I run netstat -ano I see Google Chrome has opened many connections to 172.20.0.1 which is not associated with my VPN.
 
What is causing Chrome to bypass the VPN? Is it intentional or the cause of some malware/trojan software specifically defined to thwart the VPNs anonymity?
 
I have tried multiple different VPN protocols and ports always with the same result of certain system processes and Google Chrome accessing the internet via ports other than the VPN's encrypted tunnel.

Answer:Chrome opens many connections from the same 'local address'

Hello there! I've been monitoring my internet connection in my computers using TCPView and ProcessMonitor when in doubt of a process number shown in TCPView. There is one thing that's bugging me, though: As I browse the internet, several connections are established by my browsers to an address that shows no information as I look it up in the usual DNS - Whois websites, also, when I google it, nothing definitive shows up. The address that bugs me is this one:

customer-189-254-81-16-sta.uninet-ide.com.mx

The actual line shown in TCPView goes something like this:

Process PID Protocol Local Address Local Port Remote Address Remote Port State
chrome.exe 5608 TCP roberto1.lan 58220 customer-189-254-81-81-sta.uninet-ide.com.mx http ESTABLISHED

Normally several of these will appear. The numbers after the word customer change sometimes, what remains constant is the word customer and the ending, which would be sta.uninet-ide.com.mx

The system I'm using has Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit and this happens with both browsers I use, which are Firefox 3.6 and Chrome 5.0

If the address should be a malicious address, what steps could I take to find out what malware is doing this and remove it?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Hi, Please can someone help me.

I'm need to set up a VPN for a friend, he is starting his own business.
right now I am using my Computer as a test server
I have managed to have his client computer connect to my "VPN server" and he is able to browse my LAN network, Shared folders, I CAN Map a network drive. everything seems Good.

My only problem is, I need to have multiple connections to my "The Server", The Goal is to have 5 Computers, all on the same VPN - Using 1 shared drive, which will be a Folder on the server.

The Issue comes, when I use Client-PC1 to connect to my computer, it works and its fine, Then I try to Connect Client-PC2 to the same VPN, using a Different username and password. at this point I get the:

--

Error 937: Because another connection of your type is in use, The incoming connection cannot accept your connection request.

I just need to know what's wrong here, so far from what I can see from google, I either need to get a new router that supports VPN....Something about more than 1 tunnel,

or... Some forums have said mentioned if i use Windows Server (2003 or 2008), it should let me run more then 1 VPN client at a time.

Right now I am using a PPTP instead of a Ipsec or L2tp connection as I dont know how to set up a certificate.

Any Luck ?

It kinda works now ok with both of them connected but the isdn is taking priorty over the wireless. It really needs to be the other way round where the wireless has higher priorty over the isdn.
How can i make the wireless the default internet connection.

You don't actually have 5 nics, what you are seeing are 5 different connections that were made. When ever you delete/reinstall a network connection Windows shows a new connection, you can delete them and even rename them if you want.

Good Morning,
 
We have an issue that has come up within the last 48 hours.  At first, one laptop acted like the wireless radio was turned off by displaying a red x over the radio icon.  When clicking on it, it showed no network connections available.  I tried updating drivers, no luck; I tried uninstalling and re-installing the device through device manager.  The wired connection would work perfectly fine.  Finally, we had a recent image of the laptop so I just backed up the files and re-imaged it and everything worked fine, that was 4 days ago.  Now, within the last 48 hours, 6 more laptops are showing up with the same issue and they are on a range of models (All Dell though), and OS's, mainly 7 and 8.1.  Once again wired connections work fine, but even outside our building they cannot connect to wireless and it shows no connections available. 
 
Any ideas what may be causing this?  Malware? Virus? Update?
 
One other thing I did try was to have Windows configure wireless instead of 3rd party software like Dell DWLan, and when I click Apply, it says One or more of your changes was not completed successfully, so it appears something has got a hold of the wireless and not letting go, any ideas how to pinpoint the issue?
 
Please let me know if you need any more information.
 
Thanks,
Brent

Answer:Multiple internet connections

To set up a home network, the computer that you normally connect to the internet with must have Internet Connection Sharing installed. This computer is your server and can connect to the net with a modem, ISDN, cable, DSL, etc. This computer must also have a network card.

The other computer MUST have a network adapter installed. I do not know of a way to set up a home network on computers without network cards.

I know you can connect two computers via Direct Cable Connection, for which you have a wizard under Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Direct Cable Connection. But I do not believe that two independent connections to the web can be achieved this way. It is basically for file sharing and transfer.

The following is a quote from Windows help screen that may be of some use to you:

"Before you can use Internet Connection Sharing, all computers on the network must have network adapters installed. Then, choose the computer that will be the Connection Sharing computer and use it to establish the connection to the Internet using your preferred method. This can be with a modem, two-way cable modem, ISDN, ADSL, or a dial-up adapter. Run the Internet Connection wizard to help you establish your connection. Once your Internet connection is established and known to be working, install Internet Connection Sharing, then configure the Connection Sharing computer and all other computers on the network.

But I noticed that the overall performance of my home network degraded. DD-WRT firmware on my router reports that this machine has close to a thousand of active connections!

Sorry if my post is not in the correct forum.

We have three computers in my home Computer A, Computer B, and Computer C. They all are connected to a Linksys Router, Model: WRT54GS. Computer A is located upstairs (the physical router is connected to it). While, B and C are downstairs. Back in March, Computer B was slower than a turtle and it eventually "fried" itself so I had gotten it repaired. I had gotten it back and I could go onto the internet.

We had gotten Computer C in April, and we had bought it a Linksys card to connect to the router. Computer C connected just fine.

From April to August my linksys card couldn't connect, in September it decided to work one day and then shut down in the middle of September. I had a theory that Computer C was "leeching" off of my connection. Computer A crashed in September. But, Computer C can still get internet connections, and Computer B can't.

When I try to connect it gets stuck at "Acquiring Address", and says "Disconnect" in a little box in the right hand corner. It will try to connect then the "Disconnect" box turns into "Connect". I can try to connect as much as I want, it just won't budge.

I figured if I copied what Computer C had for it's internet, it would work. It didn't. I tried reading other forums and it says to ping to an address number but I can't bring it up.

I'm completely stuck. Any advice?

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?

Nope. You would just have one connection. There is a way to load balance if you are using a Pro version of Windows. Otherwise, it would be one connection. Plus if you have your computer setup to allow public viewing of shares on a Private LAN. Anyone on that network, will be able to access anything on your computers.

I have a laptop using Windows XP Pro. I use a dial-up connection at work and a cable connection at home. How can I set up to handle this situation at either location for Internet connection?
 

Answer:Multiple Internet Connections

Here's a generic response. Follow the directions in Windows' New Connection Wizard. You'll need to know ISP account names, passwords, the phone number to your work's ISP.

To access the New Connection Wizard, click...
Start
My Computer
My Network Places
View Network Connections
Create A new Connection

Probably, the best bet for you is to choose "Setup my connection manually". For your cable ISP connection, use "Connect using a broadband connection that is always on." (If you had DSL, you'd probably have to do something different. But this is okay for cable.)

For work, you'll set up a connection for dial-up (through a modem). For home, you'll set up using your network interface (NIC) card.

When using either connection (dial-up or cable), use the specific connection you created with the Wizard. This is probably the easiest solution.

Let us know if you need any clarification.

Anyway I just have a general question, if you connect to the same connection on three different wireless cards, will your internet loading speed be faster? And if you connect to 3 different connections on different cards, will it...?

I have a laptop with a built-in wireless card, and I also have a wireless card/adapter. I'm wondering about the best options I have for this...to use both? I have a Netgear router and the adapter is also Netgear...does this make any difference? Would I see any improvement in using both cards at the same time for this router? What if the router was not a Netgear router?

The short answer is no.

Hey guys,

Just reformatted my XP home, after an upgrade of motherboard, Ram, CPU etc, During startup when my taskbar programs are being loaded, two connection attempts are made to the web without success... It's not spyware - windows based...

After they fail they read "Local area connection - a network cable is unplugged" & "Local area connection 2 : Speed 512.0 kbs Status: Limited or no connectivity"

I've a broadband connection - which works fine, but these are obviously conflicts or some sort.

In "My network connections" folder, it shows my boradband UTV Clicksilver under 'broadband'

Under this, in the same network folder there is a heading: 'Lan or High Speed Internet'
This contains 4 icons: Local area connection, Local area connection 2, 1394 Connetion & 1394 Connetion 2...

There is a red X beside Local area connection in this folder...

I have a D-Link Router connected to a cable modem and have 3 computers that run on it just fine, but I have two that have problems and keep losing their connections. Both computers are XP (as is the main computer that the router is connected to) and I am in the process of running AntiSpyware on them to see if that could possibly be the problem. All computers are behind McAfee Firewalls but still will not connect/stay connected if it disabled. Cannot understand why two will not stay connected. NOTE: I am mixing D-Link and Links cards.
 

Answer:Multiple Wireless Connections

If you're running mixed brands of wireless cards, turn off ALL "turbo" functions in the router. It would also help if you'd specify the specific models of the network equipment in use.

I've had an old PC that I've been experimenting with and have been turning into a NAS for my data so I can access it whenever necessary. I currently have the built-in Windows "Incoming Connections" VPN set up, and I've got it working good. But in the future I plan to have others be able to use it as well, but I'm not able to get more than 1 incoming connection to it at once. I've researched this a bit and from what I can gather this feature does in fact only allow 1 connection at once. Does anyone know of a way to allow more connections, or a third-party application that can create a VPN connection that accepts multiple connections? I've tried Hamachi and this does work, but I don't want to have people need to install another application for this (also, it's only free for 5 people). Answers appreciated!

I checked the rules to see if it is ok to ask for this type of advice and could not find anything. If I am in violation, my appologies, and please remove thread.
That being said, I am wondering what is available to allow secure multiple concurrent connections from the internet to a 2003 server, or to multiple pcs that are connected directly to the 2003 server. Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Secure multiple connections

You can setup a Remote/VPN server from within the 'Manage My Computer' Administrative Tools, assign a small DHCP pool for the number of workstations that you want to connect, use a certificate to make it a secure connection. There's some good tutorials on the MS site somewhere, but if you get stuck, post back and I'll give you more details about how I use mine for remote support.

Have fun, it's a good 'interesting' project to do (and it works the dogs danglies as well).

Hello!
I'm just wondering... How can I be connected to multiple routers? So I can, for example, have one wired connection and maybe two wireless connections? Do I have to have many network cards, or can I use a program or so?

Thanks!

Answer:Multiple network connections?

First, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Every NIC (LAN and / or WiFi) can be connected to a network. A modern laptop for example with LAN and WiFi can be connected to two networks simultaneously, LAN to one network and WiFi to another. The more NICs you have, the more simultaneous network connections you can have.

Is there a clean way to set up multiple VPN connections on a XP Pro client?

I need to test L2TP connectivity to a server with upwards of 30 tunnels, and Im trying to accomplish this with one laptop. I can connect two VPN connections to the server, but the third dies in saying the PPP device is already in use. To do this, I made the first L2TP connection, then copied it a few times. The original setting works, and I can also see the second log on, but when I try to log the third user on (different user names), it dies. I can disconnect the first then connect to the third, so it only allows two at a time. Can you connect more than two, and if so, why would the second connection go through?
 

Answer:Multiple VPN connections per client

I think that depends on the VPN client, but it's pretty unusual to want 30 tunnels from a single workstation, probably why it's limited.

Answer:Multiple network connections and IE

Well, you could set your Ethernet port to a static address for your router, just leave the DNS feilds blank. That will connect you to the network but not give internet to that lappy....but if you take it somewhere else and plug it in as your only connection, you will have to set it back. Try to disconnect from your wireless connection, and just use the Ethernet cable. See if it gives you both IE and your file transfer. Might be a mac address confusion on your router lol.

My banking website is messed up as of recent, where it takes ages to log in, and during that log in process (45-60 seconds), Firefox will not process any other websites. So if I open another tab and type in www.google.com it will just hang there until the banking website is logged in.

I don't know what's up with that, it doesn't make sense. It's as if Firefox can't process more than one request but I'm pretty sure that's not true at all. Is there a way to fix this? Within Firefox I mean, so that it will still process other requests even though my banking website is causing this hang

The internal modem is connected to a permanant line through our ISP. The external modem is connected to a seperate line, which is used for other activities such as downloading bank statements etc which do not require a permanant connection, but have there own dial-ups. Individually, each dialer works, but as soon as I try to connect to a second dialer, it keeps disconnecting!! This is very frustrating for our office as we need to be at different sites throughout the day and at the moment it involves connecting and reconnecting a million times a day!! Please help!

I have a wireless network as well as a wired network with my computers at my house. I use the wireless network for internet access, and the wired network for communication between my local computers (I keep all my music on one machine, for example). When it works, it works wonderfully, so the comparatively limited wireless bandwidth isn't wasted on streaming music files from a local computer, for example. However, it's been a bitch to configure every time I have to log off or reboot (or the power goes out, as its done 3 times in the past 2 days, but that's another issue). I have to mess around with my already finicky wireless and do a ROUTE DELETE on the default route that is added for the local (wired) network connection so my computer doesn't try and use that for the internet connection. I've also added an entry in my HOSTS file for each of the other computers to use the IP address on the local network.

Is there a way to automatically force a specific adapter to be used as the default gateway for the computer? Because no matter what I do, unless I manually do the ROUTE DELETE, the wired adapter always ends up being listed as the default gateway according to ROUTE PRINT. Any tips?
 

Answer:One box, multiple network connections

Just readd the default route with a lower metric and the -p switch.

Hello, ok, what I am trying to do is to bridge my internet connection from my Desktop, to my laptop, using LAN, not wireless LAN.
I can use the internet on my laptop when it is bridged, but I then want to bridge my Laptops wireless connection to the LAN that is connected to my computer, which is connected to my internet, because i want to use my mobile phone, that has WLAN to surf the net.
When i bridge my laptops WLAN with the LAN connection, and the internet is directly to the laptop, i can use the internet on my phone through an AdHoc connection.
Now the problem is, when my Desktops connections are bridged, and i have the laptop connected through LAN, I can use the internet on the laptop no problem, but as soon as i bridge my laptops WLAN with the LAN, everything completly stops, no internet on the laptop, no connection to my phone, but can still use the internet on my desktop.
The obvious solution is to get a hub/router, though I probably will do this eventually, i want to know, why it dosnt work, and if it can be fixed.
The most crazy network i know, but yeah.

This problem is a little tough to explain, but I'll try. I'd like to find if there is a resolution for it.

The way our company network is set up, we log into a domain. This gives me access to a number of network resources.

As a programmer of embedded equipment, one of the devices I've created can communicate via Ethernet to host systems.

Our network was originally laid out as a 253 system segment at 192.168.10.x (mask of 255.255.255.0) and this network segment has no free space for me to add a number of these controllers onto it since it's filled up almost to it's entirety with systems and servers.

So, I've set these units as addresses in 192.168.0.x, and I've created an alternate IP address on my system as 192.168.0.250, with a mask of 255.255.255.0.

This works, as the IP stack knows which address to send requests out to. If I address something in the 0.x range, the system originates at 0.250, anything else goes out as 10.x. The problem is, my network resources on the domain disappear occasionally, and when I delete the alternate IP address, they come back. I've been using this scheme for quite some time on Windows 2000, and it was never a problem, so something has changed over the years. It seems to work for a while, and then randomly the resources drop out.

Does anyone know why doing this would cause the connection to network resources to just vanish? It would seem that what m doing should work, since it does work. I just need to find the "irritant" that ca... Read more

Hey Jeff,
I have a couple of questions. What domain are you working off of? Windows server 2003/2008, linux? I have noticed that things I was able to do on 2000 and XP are not working with 7. That's because 7 is more secure (which I love).

What antivirus program are you running? What type of devices do you have on this other subnet? Where I work we have 2 different subnets that work fine. We had to do a couple of things in the router though to get them do this since we have multiple locations. Let me know about those questions, and I'll see what I can help with.

But if I try and use the computer name, the connection fails.

I'm running a box with windows server 2003 (small business premium) that has dual nic's. is there anyway I could use both DSL lines at the same time for better speed?

thanks,

Answer:Shotgunning Multiple Broadband Connections?

Yes and no. You can't take two (for instance) 768k DSL lines and put them together to make one 1.5Mbps line. You can, however, put them together for load balancing though, which would probably benefit you in an office environment. This will make it so that clients on your network will be able to share the two lines. If someone is hogging most of the bandwidth on DSL1, others can be using DSL2.

I know for sure that the Compex NP26GUSB router handles load balancing and I'm sure that others do. You of course need to purchase two routers to do this.

Edit- Compex calls it "parallel broadband" and you can read about it on page 45 of this PDF. http://www.cpx.com/prodimages/NP26G_USB.pdf

How would you configure this? I would prefer to not have to reconfigure my exisiting network as I'm probably too lazy.
 

Answer:Need help configuring multiple internet connections!

To start things off...

You could get a 2nd NIC in the server
Get another router for your DSL
Have the NIC for the server, and the LAN IP of the DSL router, on a different IP range than your "other" network.

Remove the gateway entry from your servers NIC going to your existing "other" cable network...so now the server will not try to use that NIC hence that cable router as its path to the internet.

Here's the deal. About a year ago when I moved into my apartment complex, the Internet service provided in my rent absolutely sucked (most times it was slower than dial up). My roommates and I sprang for a cable modem, which resides in my one roomate's room and I access it through WiFi. The speed is good, though not nearly as fast as the cable back home, but much better than the "free" service.

A few months ago the management wised up and went with a new service provider. The speed is now about comparable to the cable modem we have now, and can be faster in certain situations. Its only downside is that occasionally it will get "knocked out" and nobody in our building can access the internet for a few minutes... or hours.

So my question is, is there any way to combine these two internet connections so when both connections are working I can take advantage of both connection's bandwidth, and when one is knocked out, I can fall back on to the other? I don't want to buy any more hardware, so I'm looking for a software solution. I'm running WinXP... unfortunately.

I also have a Linux (Mandrake 10.1) box which doesn't do much other than search for prime numbers all day. I'm not incredibly proficient with Linux, though I'm sure there's probably a good solution to my problem using it, though I'd prefer for ease just to use my WinXP box.

Someone had mentioned to be that if you have 2 connections (2 ISP's using 2 different IP's) that instead of relying on a hardware solution such as an RV082 to balance your connections, you can point your software to a domain and let the DNS handle the failover.

Does anyone have any experience in accomplishing something like this?
 

Answer:how to achieve redundency through DNS using multiple connections.

No matter what environment, wheather you are running DNS locally (LAN in Active Directory) or on the internet you want to have some fault tollerance. The best way to do this is to have at a minimum of 2 physical servers. I hope this helps.

When I run "netstat -an" in cmd promt I load over 60 TCP ports open and several UDP ports open. I was told that this is not right.

I have a pocket Wifi Device, however, it is NOT using Wifi connection, as I have it connected to my PC using an USB Cable. Every morning I turn on my PC, it creates a new network connection, for example "Network 7"

How do I remove Network 1 to 6, and where are they located?

And how do I stop it from happening, as it seems it will keep going to Network 8, then Network 9 and so on.

Is there a way to use a router (I'd assume a Linux box) that will connect to two different internet connections to increase the speed to the net?

I have two situations where this would be helpful:
1 - At college
My college is running a slow, 10mbit edge network, but fortunately has dual OC3 to the internet. I want to use more bandwidth than what is allotted (they have a packetshaper, so its actually less than 10mbps), so can I have a linux box that connects to both of our ports (10mb each for me and my roommate) and then to our private network on the other side? Can I expand such a thing to 3 WAN ports (Three ports in my apartment)?

2 - at home
My neighbor uses his broadband mostly during the day; I use it during the night. We both have WiFi (I'm 802.11b on channel 11, he's b/g on 1). I want to have it so that I can use both connections. (I know that it would take dual wifi cards)

I know that i've seen cable modem hotboxes that do this, and I've heard of its use with ISDN connections too.

Would this just require a load balancing box?
 

Answer:Double speed with Multiple ISP Connections

Well for your college their is an easy answer:
http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1026346800#post1026346800


In a more general sense, you can't combine two connections and double the speed, at best you are looking at load balancing two connections to provide a more constant speed.


.... and because I can't leave well enough alone and based on your attempts at school, does your neighbor know you are using his net access?

Hi i just got a new cable modem from my isp (Shaw), and it comes with an Ethernet port and a USB port. Now in the manual it says you shouldn't connect them to one computer at the same time but i think it was referring to this when using automatic network configurations instead of manual configurations which i have set myself. Anyway i have my computer connected through the USB and i have the Ethernet going from the cable modem to a router which goes to the computer with the USB, and i figured out how to connect the USB and Ethernet at the same time. I have two different network connections in "My Network Connections" with different ip's each. Now my questions are.

What can i do with these different connections?
Can i get more download speed?
Can i bridge them together?

thx for helping anybody lol
 

Answer:Multiple connections with diffrent ip's on ONE computer

There is no benefit in having both of these connections active, and it's bound to cause complications in the future. I'd disconnect the USB and stop tinkering.

Ok I uninstalled the driver and vista automatically re-installed them for me. Now im able to connect to my internet again, but now it shows my one connection "CaniDesk" and then another Unidentified Network.

Answer:Multiple Connections? Local Only Connection

Are you using ethernet and Wireless?
Has your computer got more than one ethernet connection?
The unidentified network is probably a comunications device that is not in use by you so it is not identified.
If all is working I would not worry to much about it.

We are about to get a 10Mbps sync line for our business. We already have a full T1 that we are using a Cisco Pix 506 on. I can't find any definant info on if I can tie both of these connections into a ASA 5510 and eliminate the 506. I'm sure someone here knows.

I plan on using the 10Mbps for our web/ftp/email/streaming video servers, and putting our internal users on the T1, as well as running VPN on both connections for the best performance(I use this only for admin purposes, but I want it to be quick when our website is getting nailed).
 

Answer:Cisco ASA 5510, can it be used for multiple connections?

Hmmm. I dont think so, but I have never tried that or heard of anyone else trying it with the 7.0 code.

The only way I think you'd be able to do it is to hook both routers up to a switch, and link the switch to the ASA external interface. You'd have to do your NATing at the routers and not on the ASA. Create a private network starting with the LAN interfaces on the routers. So, E1 on each router would be connected to E0 on the ASA, and they'd all be 172.16.1.x for example. You'd then have your clients on the internal interface and your servers on the DMZ; setup two static routes to route the internal clients to the T1 router and the DMZ servers to the 10mb router. You'd have to do NAT 0 on the DMZ and the internal interfaces, otherwise you'll be doing double NAT and breaking stuff...thats where it would get tricky I suppose.

I dont even know if that will work or not, but it sounds (to me) like the best option. It'd be an interesting experiement if I had an ASA handy.

The simplest option, of course, is to ditch the T1. Put your clients on the internal interface, servers on the DMZ, and rate limit the internal interface to 1.5mbps using QoS (effectively giving them only T1 speeds). That'll cut the speed your servers will get to (at a minimum) 8.5mbps. You can keep the T1 handy as a backup connection or a test connection until your contract expires.

I have a client that wants to run consumer grade cable internet and then satellite internet into the same computer. He wants to do this for redundancy reasons, so that if the cable goes out, he is still online. If his satellite internet goes out, he is still online.

He has uninterruptable power supplies on all of his equipment, so it would literally be on the ISP's end if anything happened. I was thinking of having both cable and satellite internet run into some type of router of which he plugs into and the way the router is configured is to join them both up, or run off of the cable internet and if it goes down then runs off of satellite internet.

Anyone have any experience or knowledge in this area? Cost isn't the biggest concern.
 

Answer:Multiple connections for redundancy into one router

For inbound redundancy (he is running a web site, or email server, etc) or outbound redundancy (so they can still surf/email/etc)? That'll make a huge difference...

Hi,
My PC sits behind an ADSL router along with one other PC. I run TCPEye to monitor connections to the internet. Malwarebytes discovered some 6 Trojans and spyware recently and these were quarantined and deleted. I decided to replace Comodo with AVG, which insisted on Comodo's removal first, which I did. I noticed that the download of AVG was extremely slow and TCPEye showed hundreds of connections going all over the world being spawned from my PC- almost as if it was a server hub.
This behaviour occurs from start up even without firing up a browser.

We established a network consist of zero clients (RDP base) and a PC (windows 7) as host system. If we run ?ipconfig? command from zero clients (inside their windows), the only visible IP is the host system?s IP. Host is connected
with a Mikrotik router to the VPN server.
 
Users have to follow these steps to connect to the internet:
1- Users from the zero clients in other to connect to the internet, run a VPN connection to the VPN server.
2- Each VPN connection will authorized by VPN server.
3- If authentication is successful, user allowed to use internet.
 
Problem:
At this point when more than 1 user try to run a VPN connection from his zero client?s windows, VPN connections start to conflict each other. In this situation if we try to run new VPN connection, it will disconnect other connection
and only last VPN will connects.
 
Here is our questions:
How can we connect multiple VPN connections simultaneously, to the VPN server in such architecture?
 
Is there any patch, software or registry hack for windows 7 to solve the problem?
Installing windows 2008 or 2012 server and install RRAS service on host system can solve the problem?

You don't need a gig router to move gig data from one gig to another gig. Just need a gig switch and either gig PCI, gig PCI-E or GIG PCMICA 32-bit card. But remember G is only 30mbps as N would be more like 120mbps.Wireless will be slower to transfer large files. Newer routers have larger memory packet data buffers some have 832kb for gig switch internal inside the router some have less than 96KB. Gig switches have 64, 128, 144 and all the way up to ((4MB for packet buffers (these are 24/48 ports)).

How large of a file your transferring? I do large files over Gig to Gig daily Stream Media over 100mbps daily. One more tip whatever you do don't put 100mbps devices on a gig switch. You can connect the router if it's a 10/100 to the gig switch that's okay. But if you got slower devices don�... Read more

Basically i want to have 3 or 4 different SSID connections ranging from WEP - WPA-2.

Now the MOST frustrating part i dealt with so far , is my darn ISP saying that such a thing is IMPOSSIBLE, and this is coming from ''experienced'' technicians who have a decade+ of experience.

Well i can safely say IT IS possible because i had it configured this way in my old router for dsl, i just can't for the life of me remember how i did so.

Why do i want a wep connection? Well i have some older things that can only connect via that mode. The reason why i want to create other SSID's with wpa-2 is because i want to connect my newer devices via that method.

I can't find anything regarding this in the manufacturers page, MY ISP is beyond worthless and they state it can't be done when it was one of them who helped me with this a couple of years ago to begin with !

This is my router- http://www.actiontec.com/products/faqs.php?pid=214#q13
 

Answer:Settings up a router for multiple connections

Most traditional wireless routers will only allow one ssid per connection, and frankly if you called any isp around here they would refuse to help a home consumer with advanced level network configs. Now having said that, my router allows two ssid's that are configurable one for the 2.4ghz, and one for the 5ghz network. I couldn't locate a screenshot of that routers interface to attempt to locate it. Have a look at the wireless configuration section and see if you can figure it out. Was the previous router the same model as your fios one? or a different router? Different routers offer different options. If you could take a screenshot of each page of your routers interface we would be able to help you better.

I am trying to figure out how to use multiple Internet service connections through a 24 port Netgear FS726T switch.

Connections are :
The cable modem is connected to a Linksys WRT54G wireless router which is connected to port 8 of the Netgear.
The DSL modem\router is connected to port 6 of the Netgear switch.
There is a CAT5 line running out of the Netgear switch to an 8 port D-Link switch to which there are 4 computers connected.
There is also a CAT5 cable running out of port 3 on the Netgear which connects to a 5 port D-Link switch to which there are 3 computers connected.
There is also some other computers connected to the Netgear on various other ports (7 and 9 are used for network laser printers, 11 a print server, 15,17,19,21 for file servers, 14 for a docking station, 18 for separate room, 20 & 24 for a D-Link switch and a wall jack respectively). These ports can (and should) have Internet access via the cable modem connection.

Here's the part that I am unable to figure out:
The computers that are connected to port 1 (which is connected to the DSL modem via port 6) MUST send and receive data through the switch ONLY to and from the DSL modem connection and the computers connected to port 3 (which is connected to the Linksys\cable modem) MUST send and receive data through the switch ONLY to and from the cable modem connection.
