Dlink wireless validating identity
I want NBN connectivity too, but probably not get nbn for another 4 years. I couldn't get it to connect to my PVR, but after a day of trying everything, I rebooted the PVR and it connected to the network. Wife has her laptop and mobile on 2.4G and I use 5G with my mobile.Regards The DSL-2890AL is a new unit and thus there is very little feedback on it. I have a desktop PC 20 metres away connected to 1 ethernet port and I have a TP-Link 8 port switch on a 2nd ethernet port.However not knowing anything about recent modems I wanted to do some research. Will the wireless range be good enough for a single story 4 bedroom house? It gave me an extra 300Kbps over my old Dynalink – I only get 7424Kbps max. I managed to connect once to adsl2 (never ever been able to do this before) and I got over 9000Kbps, but once I disconnected, i could not reconnect so will stick with for a while Local wireless is very fast at 2.4G and 5G and the range very good.MY current modem I have had for over 10 years DSL 504. I want to hook up mobiles (2), PS3, and blu-ray hhd recorder, and 2 pc's up to the modem. (if I have the modem set up at one end of the house)? I have no dead spots in my house and can use it down the street as well.Reset or change the security settings on the two wired computers. For right now I just disabled (unchecked) "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication for this network" on both wired computers. But now by doing so, would it do any harm to my network? If you have a home network, it's unlikely that you have a RADIUS server - so that's OK.
Those were there as soon as I installed the XP on two of our desktops 2 years ago.
Plus it's capabilities seem quite good with just about everything.
Damn this item would look fantastic sitting on the desk, simply too good to hide it away.
So if you have access (could be physical access, including say a stolen laptop) you will be able to find the key which will allow any system access to the network... However Im still confused of why all of the sudden validating identity shows up right after I replaced the router from DI-624 to DIR-655. All I did was released the IP before I shut down DI-624 and plug the DIR-655 in powered DIR-655 up and off I go.
So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.
