Routers

Postby chombee » Fri Dec 08, 2006 5:59 pm

The router in the forest's office is an all singing and dancing Belkin F5D7630-4A ADSL modem with built in 802.11g wireless router. It is a very good router.





But can it control access to the wireless, and prevent people from abusing it?

The router does have a built-in firewall, including a list of pre-defined and custom services that can be blocked. It also appears to let you set the maximum transmission rate per wireless connection. The manual doesn't explain this feature. I think (hope), that this means we can cap the speed of wireless connections to quite slow, preventing people from abusing our Internet connection through the wireless.

I must investigate. If this one is no good, there will be more routers to come.

I think this single router may be able to replace the entire server setup above the kitchen right now. Does anyone know of any reason it might not?
I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!

That one looks good. It does 802.11b as well as g, which suits my palmtop. Don't switch on WEP encryption please. I'd have to find another cafe to work in otherwise.

It is amazing how a little 12v box can replace a big computer plus a whole lot of other boxes. There might be a Linux distro inside the box - there is in mine.

This router appears to have disappeared from the office. Perhaps it has just been moved. Perhaps someone has it.

Does anyone know? This router could really make life easier with the Internet connection.

Belated update: the router turned up. Somebody had taken it home, and when they heard I was looking for it they returned it. My message didn't get out to them directly because they were on some other forest mailing list that I didn't know about and am not on. The forest should use less secretive and unknown lists and forums, they are an obstruction. Anyway, the router is back, but the power supply for the router is not.

Does anyone know where the power supply for the router might be?

Does anyone know if the router works, or is broken?

If I can get a power supply and get it working I still sort of think it can solve our Internet connection problems.

Kitchen people: is the Internet still being problematic? Are you having to restart it often? I haven't been bothered much lately with people asking me to restart the Internet connection. If the problem has gone away it's probably not worth the effort of fixing it. Chasing down this router is time consuming. But if it's still annoying everyone then it's worth sorting out.

Miroslav had the router. I think he said it was working. If anyone sees him soon, maybe ask him if he still has the power supply.

Amazing that the 'forest speaks' email list could be considered secretive. It is supposed to be totally free and open and accessible etc etc. I think its existence is fairly well advertised, though.

The sad thing about the 'speaks is that so many of the old-skool forest cats have blocked it because it used to be so traffic-heavy. Is very light traffic now, of course.
