networking – What’s the definitive way to wirelessly extend Internet to a second building?

There are a lot of solutions to the problem of having the same Internet experience in a second building (this is in a residential context), but there always seems to be a trade-off in the far location. Ideally, I would like to take a laptop into either home, connect to the AP, and run a speed test and get the same results for both places.

I have two adjacent (~600 feet) homes and I extend my Internet with a WDS AP and Bridge combination (EnGenius ENH-202). I run a CAT5 from the far end radio into the house and go straight to a ‘regular’ wireless access point for internet coverage, streaming, etc. But the wireless link between houses consumes so much bandwidth, the speed and availability at the far location is about 1/3 what it is in the main house. I thought a WDS configuration would give me a transparent ‘virtual cable’ type extension. All of my wireless AP’s in either house are cheap 2.4 Ghz units, and the ENH202 link is 2.4 Ghz as well.

Cascading two wireless links seems to be so bandwidth-hungry by definition that it’s almost not worth the effort. Running CAT5 between the homes is not an option for terrain reasons.

Am I stuck with this solution, or is there a truly transparent wireless link that does not cost so much in terms of bandwidth?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 – how to connect device wirelessly to computer?

I should first explain that the Tab connects wirelessly to my modemrouter, and thence to the internet.
Also, it connects to the computer via USB cable.
However, I cannot get it to connect wirelessly to my computer, or any other of the five desktops and laptops that make up my home network.
I must be missing something basic.
Anyone have a suggestion?

BTW: All the PCs but one are W7 Ultimate 64bit. The other is W10 Enterprise.
All are connected via gigabit hub and are fully shared with each other.
Galaxy model is SM-T800. Android is 6.0.1.
Thanks for reading.

macbook pro – How to disable the “Your trackpad is wirelessly connected to this Mac” notification?

So I have a 2019 Macbook Pro connected to a Caldigit TS3 Plus dock. Connected to that I have a Magic Trackpad 2 via USB cable (to charge it). It is a Bluetooth device. Every time I connected my MBP to this docking station I get this stupid notification:

Your trackpad is wirelessly connected to this Mac

And I can’t for the life of me figure out how to disable this. There’s no Bluetooth setting for the device. Clicking on “Settings” takes you to the Bluetooth System Preferences. There’s nothing I can see under Notifications Systems Preferences that pertains to this.

Now I should also mention that I connect TWO different MBPs to this same docking station and it seems like only when I change laptops does this come up but I’m not 100% sure about that (as in, I’m not 100% certain it doesn’t show up when I power the same laptop on or wake it up).

I’m actually shocked that a Google search for “Your trackpad is wirelessly connected to this Mac” (including quotes) has exactly 0 matches.

networking – Can I connect a VOIP phone to the internet from a laptop that is connected to the internet wirelessly?

Can I connect a VOIP phone, that does not have wireless capability, to the internet by using an ethernet cable to the phone from a laptop that is connected to the internet wirelessly? My home office is not hard-wired, so both my laptop and printer work off of wifi. There is a more expensive version (Polycom VVX250) of my VOIP phone that does have a USB port allowing a wifi card to be inserted, but my phone (Polycom VVX150) does not have that port. I really don’t want to return the phone I have and spend more money for that functionality if I don’t have to because we will be moving into an office in a few months that will be hard-wired so this won’t be an issue. Thoughts anyone? Thanks in advance.

drivers – Is it possible to connect both a Bluetooth headset and a ps3 controller wirelessly via Bluetooth?

I recently installed qtsixa to connect my ps3 controller via bluetooth. The problem now is that after the installation, the bluetooth tray icon disappeared even when my controller is not connected. When I was on Windows, I couldn't use my controller and headset at the same time, but maybe I could work here?

Really, I have 2 problems:

  • My BT tray symbol is not displayed
  • I want to know if I can connect my controller and headset at the same time

I'm using Ubuntu 19.10 on the KDE Plasma Desktop Env.

From camera flash – How can I have my flash unit, a Canon 430EX II, work wirelessly with my Godox equipment?

You need to connect an X1R-C receiver to the base of the 430EX II for use in the Godox 2.4 GHz radio system. The X2T is a dedicated transmitter unit and cannot be used as a receiver.

Ideally, I would recommend that you use a Godox TT685-C or V860II-C flash as an external flash instead. It's more expensive than the receiver, but more practical and sturdy for off-camera flash units (they have a built-in Godox transceiver unit so you don't have to put anything on your feet). In contrast to the X1R-C, the TT685-C and the V860II-C can be used with updated firmware across all brands with Godox transmitters for Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Olympus / Panasonic and Pentax. So if you ever leave the Canon fold, you can still use these flashes when TTL is flashing wirelessly outside the camera. All you have to do is buy your transmitter again. The X1R-C becomes a cross-brand recipient if it is used across brands.

From camera flash – How can I make my 430exii flash unit work wirelessly?

Yes, you need to attach a separate receiver to the base of the 430EX II.

The 430EX II has a built-in wireless flash slave system, but will only work with Canon's proprietary optical wireless system and only if it has a compatible "master" flash such as a 580EX II, Canon ST-E2 or the built-in one System is used. in the flash of some cameras like the T7i or 90D.

synology – Wirelessly connect the second router to the Internet?

The function you need is called WDS. However, the implementation is vendor-specific, so it does not help to have two different brands.

If WDS fails, try your luck by setting up two wireless modes simultaneously, Client and AP. The radio switches between them and behaves quickly like two machines.

A sure way is to connect two cheap routers at one point with a short piece of cable. One would be the client and the other the AP. However, this increases the cost.

Regardless of the final solution, you can rely on the Internet to work slower than a wired network. Specifically, if the setup uses the same channel upstream and downstream, as is likely with repeaters. If you choose two routers, I recommend that the "uplink" or the connection between the main wired router and your "client" intermediate router be 5 GHz. This helps enormously against loss of speed.

Wireless Flash – How do I trigger a Yongnuo YN-685 wirelessly in MULTI with the YN622N-TX?

The only way to get "Multi (Stroboscopic) Flash" to work wirelessly via a YN622-TX is to set the multi-settings via the in-camera flash menu of my Canon camera, with the YN622C-TX set to & # 39; is set. Manual & # 39; for the group (s) that I use in multi-mode.

  • The flash should be on & # 39; 622 Remote – Slave & # 39; be set. The initial settings for the flash should be the "neutral" values: power to 1/1, FEC to "0" and zoom to "auto".
  • The YN622C-TX should be set to the mode & # 39; M & # 39; (manually) be set.
  • If you want to set the power level of each flash to a different value, use the control panel of each flash to assign each flash to a different group.
  • You can adjust the power level using the YN622C-TX or the camera's internal menu.
  • Use the camera's flash menu [External Speedlite control] → [Flash function settings] to display the flash function settings screen.
  • Move the cursor over the top left corner, press the & # 39; Set & # 39; button, change the mode to & # 39; Multi & # 39; and press again & # 39; Set & # 39 ;.
  • Once "Multi" is selected, use the "Quick Control Wheel" or the "Joystick" to navigate directly under "Multi".
  • Place the cursor on the number for & # 39; Flash count & # 39; on the far left and press & # 39; Set & # 39 ;. Use the & # 39; Quick Control Wheel & # 39; or the & # 39; joystick & # 39; up or down to select how many flashes you want to trigger. Set value to [–] The flash fires at the set frequency while the shutter is open. Once the value has reached the desired setting, press & # 39; Set & # 39 ;.
  • Navigate right, move the cursor to Flash Frequency, press Set, and use the Quick Control Wheel or Joystick up or down to select the number of pulses per second. (If & # 39; 1 & # 39; is selected, one pulse will be triggered per second, and if & # 39; 2 & # 39 ;, 2 seconds / every half second will be fired per second. & # 39; 3 & # will be triggered. 39; three seconds per second / every third second, etc. are triggered.) The lowest value that can be set is # 1,, so pulses longer than one second are not possible. The highest setting is & # 39; 500 & # 39 ;.
  • Make sure that the set shutter speed is long enough for the number of pulses you select to be triggered at the intervals you have selected.

As long as I do not change the power level setting via the YN622C-TX, the flash will pulsate with each shot to my settings. When the power level (or other setting) is changed, everything changes from "Multi" to "Manual" (with one pulse per picture). I then have to switch back to the camera menu to change it back to "Multi" & # 39 ;.

Now that we know you're using a Nikon camera, you can not use the camera's internal flash menu, which Nikons does not offer. But that may be a way to do it with my Canon cameras. If the camera has no internal settings to override the settings of the flash, the settings of the flash before switching it to the & # 39; 622 Remote – Slave & # 39; put, get stuck, and you can use the & # 39; Multi (Scroposcopic) flash & # 39; just before pressing the mode button for a few seconds to enter the mode & # 39; 622 remote slave & # 39; switch.

Did you try to set the "Multi" mode on the flash before you set it to "622 Remote Slave" mode? In my Canon version, I can do that, and the display will continue to show & # 39; Multi & # 39; displayed, along with & # 39; 622 remote slave & # 39; after I pressed the mode button. The internal flash settings in my camera override this, however, when I press the shutter button halfway. Since Nikon bodies do not have internal flash control menus, this can work with a Nikon camera if it does not send anything to overwrite it.
