Internet down again

Postby HGiles » Sun May 08, 2011 6:54 pm

WiFi in the cafe is down again, with different computers reporting different errors.

Internet is working in the office, but not in the Action Room - where it's been down for weeks, now that I think about it.

Mike, would it be possible to train up a couple of seconds in maintaining Forest's internet? We're getting too many errors to rely on one person all the time, I think! And some labelling on all routers saying "I don't care who you are, if you're not trained up don't touch this" might be good.

I have previously solved a similar problem by taking a cash box, drilling some holes for cables, inserting the unit and screwing it to the wall. That tends to stump the ungodly!

Started working again this afternoon, but just now, weirdly, the only website I know I can access is this BB.

Stephen sorted it today. Somebody had the wrong cables plugged into the router from memory. Again a case of folk dicking about with things they should leave well enough alone.

I tried the cafe kiosk computer, and it wanted a username and password to get past 192.168.11.1. Is it supposed to do that?

No.

I think that confirms my suspicions that putting the cafe router in front of the fly killer has fucked it.

Luckily, I had the foresight to make sure we ordered a spare, so I'll get in and set that up as soon as I can, probably tomorrow.

Same problems still ongoing. We need a tech action day!

- No printer for the office
- Unreliable WiFi everywhere
- No connection for computers in front room or action room

Wifi should now be fixed.

Front room computer should be ok now too, but I don't have time to check.

I think action room problem is a cabling issue, I will look into this as soon as I can.

Printer to office can't work till action room connection is sorted.

Donated printer is here, so that can be set up pretty easily. Again, don't have time right now but should be able to do that over the next few days.

Thanks for fixing the WiFi! Keep us updated on the other issues.

If a recruitment email for a tech team were sent out, would you be able to organise a quick train-up in the next couple weeks?

Yeah, macs always have an issue with this.

What happens is, they save the settings for Forest network, including the MAC address of the wireless-router. When I swapped out routers, all the network settings stay the same, but the MAC address changes, and this is enough to confuse crApple products.

Solution is to use a computer with a real operating system. Apple have a massive history of having obnoxious bugs like this, that they never fix.

I think it's fixable by turning off Airport, going into the settings and removing the stored settings for the Forest network. then restart the computer, if it auto-reconnects to the forest network without asking for a password, you didn't remove the settings properly. Once restarted, reconnect to the forest network and you should be prompted for the password, enter it and then that should be you sorted. (Disclaimer: I don't own or use a Mac, but this is how I fixed it for a couple of people last time).

Hey folks,

Got the internet working on the Action room Macs this afternoon. The issue was the router above the cafe needed restarting in order to reconnect properly (this also fixed the connection for the free comp in the front room).

If the action room Mac doesn't have a connection you can try a soft reset of the router downstairs.

By soft reset I mean turn the power on and off (do not touch the router in anyway or allow anyone else to touch it). I've left directions below the router on how to do this.


The other Mac in the action room seems to work. I managed to get internet on that and typed and saved a word doc. I've left a power and network cable in it although we'll need a USB keyboard and mouse to actually use it alongside the other mac.


As far as cafe user's Macs having issues connecting goes I've left some relatively straight forward ways of trying to sort this by the till. (there's one more surefire way of sorting it but that involves going into the System Config folder and deleting files so didn't want people working in the cafe to be giving out that as advice).

PS the plates and cups delicately balanced on the top shelf around the router look very nice and also make the router very hard to mess with without risking a china avalanche so well down whoever put them up there!

No worries.

Put a new post in the People's Forum to see if anyone could spare a keyboard and mouse. Might try the Gumtree stuff wanted section as well.
