  1. Okay, that makes sense. I really have no clue how it ended up with that IP, as i said as far as i know the gateway serves as a DHCP server as well. So all that said, if it is on a different subnetwork, how does it manage to serve connection to the computers attached to it? Thanks for your help Nerm, i will try your suggestion when i get home. Because it is acting as a switch it is still passing layer 2 traffic so it is essentially being a bridge for the network.
  2. Ok so if everything gets a 192.168.0.x address dynamically how did the switch end up with a 192.168.1.x address? You have a device on one network ( that has no way to communicate with another network ( The "gateway" device would have to have a route setup so that the traffic from the two networks can communicate. If you were to plug a laptop into the switch with the network already manually configured on it I bet you would be able to access and manage the switch from it. As it stands you basically have an invalid network configuration.
  3. What IP addresses do the computers directly connected to the switch receive from DHCP or have statically assigned?
  4. Oooooooooooooooooooooooh, ok.....First the port 25 forwarding will not work on the router when the VPN tunnel is up because that is the purpose of a VPN. A VPN is a private tunnel that traverses other networks between two end points. This means that the forwarding would have to take place at the other end point of the tunnel. I know you mentioned it is a PPTP but what is it tunneling to? Is it tunneling to another office/home, online VPN service, etc? On another note a PPTP VPN is not an ideal choice for this setup, may I ask why you chose it?
  5. Your switch has wireless? ......Post your network config and a diagram if possible. If the router is on network and the switch is on then what network are the workstations on? Remember if you have devices in separate subnets then they would require a layer 3 device (router) to route traffic between them.
  6. There are multiple kinds of VPN's. What kind are you using and how is it configured. We would need a lot more information to be able to help. Can you post a diagram of your design? Also keep in mind that in Exchange you have to tell it what networks it can send/receive on. For example if your primary network is and your VPN network is then both of those have to be configured as allowed send/receive in Exchange.
  7. Will you email me the screen shot please?
  8. Yes, looks like a fubar ad. We are working on it.
  9. Oh yea I definitely need to stop procrastinating and get me a Pi to play with.
  10. Yes this can be done with the right equipment. The problem is that "leeching" off of someone else's wifi is illegal. Discussions of illegal activity are not allowed on this forum.
  11. Nothing....after a financial emergency right before Christmas there was only enough leftover to get the kids Christmas. I tell you what though watching the kids open their presents was more than enough for my wife and I.
  12. I have been meaning to get a Raspberry Pi to play with but just haven't gotten around to it. I like how easy they are to conceal especially in scenarios like pentesting.
  13. Hoping for a rematch after last year.
  14. Should be fun. My biggest weakness is QB so I think our game could hinge completely on Newton. I would like to take this time to point out that I drafted dead last this year.
  15. ewwww...lol Would you like your team back in pieces or just in a body bag? Muahahaha
  16. I LOVE COFFEE!!!! Actually I love "real" coffee not this crapachino BS. I have no clue how many cups I drink a day but it is safe to assume 5 or more.
  17. I assume you want home "use" router not home "lab", etc in which case that would be a Mikrotik RB951G-2HnD. Hard to beat a router that can support BGP for around $100 lol. Why no Mikrotik love on your list? They make great stuff.
  18. If the primary use is live streaming then 100Mbps vs 1000Mbps is moot unless your incoming link is > 100Mbps. If you will be doing a lot of device to device file transfers or streaming from a local LAN media server then gigabit would certainly be recommended.
  19. I apologize if this is old but just ran across it today and thought it was amazing. I tried it from my computer and it really does work. hahahaha
  20. Just curious what others think. Great idea? Terrible idea? ...Personally I love the forward thinking of the idea and of course the price point, but am concerned about the quality. Kids are already coming out of technical schools completely unprepared for IT in the real world. http://chronicle.com/article/Ga-Tech-to-Offer-a-MOOC-Like/139245
