Home Networking Questions

  • Hi.

    I plan to setup (first-time) a home network for my PC, a netbook, a laptop and an ipod itouch.
    Connection is a Bayantel 1.5mbps. PC on Windows 7.
    Walang network adapter and PC ko. Bibili palang ako.
    Most of the time, ako (PC) lang gagamit ng connection.
    Bihira ang netbook, laptop & itouch.


    Questions:

    ~Malaki ba difference ng wireless N sa wireless G?
    ~Dapat ba kung wireless N ang router wireless N din ang adapter? (wala akong makitang N na adapter)
    ~Mas stable/matibay ba ang PCI adapter compared sa USB adapter?
    ~Anong brand at combination ng router/adapter ang maganda? (na mura)
    ~May loss of speed ba pag wireless compared sa wired? (assuming ako lang mag isa gumagamit)

    Dito ko nakuha ang home network setup steps............ http://www.microsoft.com/athome/organization/wirelesssetup.aspx
    Any suggestions will be helpful for a network newbie like me.

    Thanks! And more questions to come :)
  • ~Malaki ba difference ng wireless N sa wireless G?


    depends... kung bahay mo malaki, N works better. But, kung maraming walls at floors, I\'d go for MIMO routers kahit N or G basta MIMO.

    ~Dapat ba kung wireless N ang router wireless N din ang adapter? (wala akong makitang N na adapter)

    N routers support G adapters kaso G din ang range (i think).

    ~Mas stable/matibay ba ang PCI adapter compared sa USB adapter?

    depende kung MIMO

    ~Anong brand at combination ng router/adapter ang maganda? (na mura)

    I go for corega or dlink.

    ~May loss of speed ba pag wireless compared sa wired? (assuming ako lang mag isa gumagamit)

    wired is faster.
  • aside from the greater range of wifi N, N has higher bandwidth. However since with G, I can already transfer files at ~ 20 mbps, its not gonna bottleneck your 1.5 mbps ISP.

    I can get maybe 55 mbps with wired

    so you wont notice a difference just by downloading. You need file transfer to max out your G or N connection
  • Thanks guys.

    I bought the DLINK Wireless N 150 Home Router (DIR-600) and the
    DLINK Wireless N 150 USB Adapter (DWA-125)

    Unfortunately, 2 nights ko na syang ginagawa, unsuccessful parin ang pag setup
    ko ng home network.

    Can anyone give me a \"for dummy\" guide on this one?
    I am a first-timmer on networking.
    On Windows 7

    Thanks.
  • ^RTFM read the fscking manual hehe. or just use it\'s quick setup
  • While we are at it, bakit ang daming version ng wireless N. May 150mpbs, may 300Mbps at Extreme N na hindi ko na alam ang bandwidth.

  • ^ I tried both. I followed the written manual and I also used the quick setup CD. :(
  • you must know how to configure the wireless router in order for you to build wireless connection regardless of what is your OS, since different OS or platform..still the same network protocol.
    first you have to do is...
    setup your WAN connection...(just check the status on the interface if your router and WAN/ISP is connected),
    then configure your DHCP server on router..
    then next is test your client/PC connection..
    then last is configure your security (authentication and encryption).
  • How did you connect the router to the Bayantel equipment?
  • 1. Network and Sharing Center
    2. Change advanced sharing settings
    3. Click home and work

    -turn on network discovery
    -turn on file and printer sharing
    -turn on sharing so anyone with network access ....
    -Use 128bit encrption
    -turn off password protected sharing

  • ^ via ethernet cable.

    I\'ve been trying to wirelessly connect the USB adapter and the router.
    Pero unsuccessful. I tried WPS (ba yun? yung may \"push button\")
    Hindi talaga ma-detect ng USB adapter and router.
  • thanks guile99 and particlex. I will try it.
  • ay wireless pala ito, toinks. :p

  • sir pwede po ba magkasama yung lan cable at electrical wire sa isang conduit.balak kopo idaan din yun linya ng router papunta sa taas na may router din. doon din sa linya ng kuryente ang pinakamalapit makalusot yung connecting cord.

  • Ask ko lang po, pag 2 lan card tapos 2 ISPs pag nasira isang ISP may internet parin?

    with vanilla windows installation, no. with a software to aid that, yes possible, I think there's a software called connectify that can take role of this work which basically automatically failover to another internet connection you have in case that your main connection fails.
  • @sem_rs: mas maganda hiwalay para iwas problema.
  • @paul5v [TS]:
    1. Kabit mo yung ISP modem sa PC gamit ang ethernet cable.
    2. Mula sa PC, run mo ang CMD (Command Prompt), type ipconfig.
    3. Kunin at lista ang default gaetway ip address ex. 192.168.1.1.
    4. Mag open ng web browser (IE or Chrome), lagay mo yung default gaetway ex. 192.168.1.1.
    5. Log-in sa router, punta ka sa WAN, dapat naka DHCP wang setup. Static kung alam mo ang IP address, Subnet Mask at Gatway ng ISP mo (Bayantel). Click apply at huwag muna reboot ng router.
    6. Hanapin mo yung wireless setup, baguhin mo ang SSID ayon sa iyong gustong WIFI ID at palitan ang password, click apply.
    7. Disable mo ang broadcast ng SSID para hindi makita ng ibang tao.
    8. Reboot mo ang DLINK Wireless N 150 Home Router (DIR-600) at subukan.
    9. Palitan mo yung admin password para hindi magalaw ng iba.

    Kapag nakakabit ka na sa WIFI puwede mo na alisin ang ethernet mo.

    Maari mo ng maccess ang iyong router.
