Need Ethernet Inline Switch

Q: Need Ethernet Inline Switch

As a security device I have an RJ45 coupler in the cable between my computer and internet modem, and I only couple the two cable segments when I need to be online. Needless to say eventually the cable connector breaks and I have to replace the cable segment. I could really use a simple inexpensive inline on/off switch to replace the coupler between the two cable segments, but can't find such a thing. Can anyone help? Thks.

A: Need Ethernet Inline Switch

For inexpensive you could disable the ethernet connection (in Network Connections) or use a firewall.

Next time you buy a modem look for one with a Standby button; all Motorola cable modems seem to have one.

Hello,

I have an ethernet cable run in my house. What I need to figure out is if there is such thing an ethernet switch that does not require a power source. (or something that can get this situation resolved)

Here is my situation:
I have a cable ran to my basement, and have a bedroom directly above the basement that needs an ethernet run. It is not possible for me to run a completely new cable from the original starting point, so I was somehow hoping to use the cable going to the basement, put a head on it, put it into a switch/hub/splitter and run a cable out of it to the room directly above, and use the other cable coming out to stay in the basement.

Is there something that can do this for me? Is there a better way to do so? What would you suggest? Thanks!

UPDATE: Please refer to post #4 for more details.

Got an odd one for you, but someone might have run across it.

In addition to software security devices when accessing the Internet, I use hardware security as well. Since being disconnected from the Internet is the best possible security, I use an RJ-45 coupler in the Ethernet cable between my computer and the cable modem, keeping one or other side of the cable disconnected except when I'm actually using the Internet (downloading mail, etc.)

This is quite convenient, but the Ethernet connectors invariably break after 100 or so connect/disconnect cycles, and the cable segment has to be replaced.

The best solution, if anyone has ever seen or heard of one, would be an on/off switch designed to link two RJ-45 Ethernet cables. Not as good would be a little two-port Ethernet "hubby", such as used to be available for a while 10 or 12 years ago, with its own power supply; I could then use an ordinary 120V AC on/off switch to control the Internet connection by powering the hubby up and down. But I can no longer find any of these hubbies.

Any info on either of these devices, or suggestions of better alternative methods, would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Another thought for changing my network for printer only sharing.

All things being equal, which hardware item will be better for printer sharing - Hub or Switch. I don't want to have to redo my cabling.

I understand a hub or switch will change the direction internally, so I don't have to buy any cross-over patch cables, but just plug each computer in to the hub or switch - right?

The other alternative is to buy a second cheap printer, but that entails cartridge additions at a later date.

Comments please. . .

We have several computers on a network attached to a router. My son uses his PC and plays games on line using the Xbox. Everytime he wants to switch from one to the other, he has to pull the Ethernet cable out and put it in the other unit. He isn't close to the router so its impossible to set up two separate connections. Is there anything out there that would serve as an A-B switch where he can hook up the Ethernet line to the switch, then run another two shorter wires out to the PC and Xbox. It would be nice for him to be able to go back and fourth without having to crawl behind the Xbox and attach.

I am designing a test system that has three 8-bit ethernet microcontrollers http://www.rabbitsemiconductor.com/products/rcm4200 connected through FPGAs to some non-standard serial buses transmitting and receiving 16-bit serial data at 1Mbps clock, at some data rate (maybe up to 500 messages/sec each). A PC connected to the ethernet switch will send commands to the three microcontrollers, and will process the data they send. The PC is a Core 2 Duo at tbd speed with tbd RAM, and software to talk via ethernet will be an .exe compiled from C++ source code. Based on years of experience I think the PC can keep up, but I don't know about the ethernet switch.

I don't think a $50 5-port Linksys or D-Link home switch is going to handle this, it needs to buffer data so messages don't get lost. I don't need a router or DHCP server, just a decent switch.

Any ideas? This is for work so money is no object (but would like to keep it under $2000).

Hi All,

I have a laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad) that is mounted in a docking station. In my house I have wifi, the docking station is connected to the router via hard LAN.

I have prioritized my connections to give preference to LAN over wifi (as I obviously prefer the fastest connection).

Question:

Hello. Do I need an Ethernet hub, switch, or even a router to have my Ethernet VOIP telephony box to be hardwired "separately" from my cable modem and NOT be part of my hardwired wireless router's ports???

My Objective/My Plan:

This is for home/residential networking. To have two (2) hardwired networking hardware items: 1. (1) VOIP box... ...and... 2. (1) wireless integrated router BOTH hardwired off of the same cable modem of my cable ISP. I need either a hub, a switch, or even a router to connect both networking hardware items to the cable modem. Also, I MUST BE ABLE to connect to the Internet at the same time for both the VOIP box and the wireless integrated router (the Internet) if necessary. My current wireless integrated router will serve as my wired/wireless networking device for a desktop computer, a laptop, an Internet streaming radio, and a Wi-Fi Smartphone; but the wireless router *WILL NOT* serve my VOIP telephony service. Why? See: "Reason".

For your information, the VOIP box offers an incoming Internet connectivity, an outgoing traditional telephone jack, and a power port for a power adapter. No Internet bypass Ethernet port on the VOIP box.

Also, be aware that my cable ISP company is NOT the same as my VOIP company. This does not make much different on the networking hardware setup. The cable modem itself has ONLY one (1) Ethernet connection too.

1. You could complete this in two different ways however it is dependent on what the current router is for your main internet connection to client computers. One way is to connect a separate router to one of your main routers LAN ports. for example connecting the internet port to the LAN port. Then all you need to do is add the VoIP clients to the added router and it will be completely separate from your computers due to a technology called NAT.

i can only connect one notebook at a time. if i connect the other, usually a "ip conflict" balloon pops up. so HELP!
 

A:ip conflict with ethernet switch

Because you have residential service which will only give you one single public IP. By putting in a switch, you are causing both laptops to request an IP via DHCP. Frankly, I'm surprised you're even getting both laptops to get an IP from the DHCP server. You need a router which does NATing to allow simultaneous network connectivity for both laptops not a switch.

hey guys i have a quick question bout a situation i have going on. the computer i am now on is hooked up into the internet via a wall ethernet jack, which is hooked into an ethernet switch (or hub i think) in another room where the cable modem is located. the tv that i play my xbox 360 on is a good 10 feet away or so, and i want to get connected onto xbox live from there.

i have an ethernet cable that is long enough to run from the xbox itself to the wall ethernet jack that the computer is hooked into.

what my question is is that if i buy another ethernet switch and hook it into the wall jack, and then from that switch run another ethernet line into the computer which is literally right on top of the jack and then another line from that switch into the xbox 10 feet away, if this will work since the wall jack itself is hooked into another ethernet switch in another room.

i can kinda guess that was kinda annoying to follow but i just wanted to explain everything to avoid confusion. help would be really appreciated . thanks guys

Hello,

Will be using two desktop PC's in house for the first time now.

Have always had a hard wired Ethernet cable between Router output and the one desktop pc.

New PC coming with, apparently, some "wireless" capability.

a. Can one of the PC's be connected to the Router wirelessly (and the other thru the Ethernet cable) ?

If so, where are the Settings to do it, and how would I go about it ?

b. Or, is it better to try and set up a GigaBit "Switch", and have both PC's use it ?
Would this be better than one PC wireless, and one PC thru the Ethernet cable ?
Why ? Any caveats or gotchas doing it this way ?

I have a curious issue, so I figured I'd see if someone can fix a problem for me for a change.

I recently upgraded to a 35/35 Internet connection. When I connect my computer directly to the router, I get the full bandwidth on a test at www.speedtest.net. However, whenever I use any of my gigabit switches between the computer and the Actiontec MI424WR router, I get much more leisurely upstream connections.

This seems to be some sort of issue with the cheap SOHO switch being throttled by the 100mbit port on the router. Obviously, the gigabit port on my computer seems to be smarter than the gigabit switch ports.

It seems clear that I probably have to replace the switch with a better model, but I don't want to buy a more expensive switch without knowing that it's really going to solve the handshake issue.

Any suggestions or ideas on how to beat this into submission would be appreciated.

Here's the results I'm seeing.

Say I need to shut off internet access in my home to prevent my teen from having the temptation to play multiplayer games at all hours. I'm thinking that I could insert a timer switch in the ethernet cable that would disable one or two of the wires in the CAT-5 cable, rendering internet access inoperable. At 6 AM, when we need the internet up, the switch would restore the connection with no fuss (i.e. rebooting of routers, laptops, wi-fi routers, etc.). I need it to operate without daily intervention on my part; the internet goes off at midnight, comes back at 6AM. Ideally, it would deal with DST on its own too. Is there anything out there like that? If not, can you tell me which wire, or wires, in the CAT-5 cable will kill all data throughput if it is cut, and resume throughput seamlessly if it is restored?

For now, I've activated my EZ firewall, which I haven't used in the past because it would cause some problems with some apps.

Hi,
I run an Ethernet cable to my modem for my Windows 10 PC. But unfortunately I have a lot of drop outs where the internet just stops (something I am taking up with my provider) and I have a pocket wifi to use as a back up.

My PC can find the wifi and connect but the only way I can get it to connect is by pulling out the blue Ethernet cable from the actual pc. (When I say connect, I mean it is "connected" already but not in use, the small box appears for the ethernet cable rather than the wifi icon)

I would like to know if there is a way to either run the wifi simultaneously with the Ethernet cable plugged in or if there is a way to "turn off" the Ethernet connection from my pc when it goes down, so that I dont have to keep unplugging it.

I am not very technically minded and am worried if I go into advanced network settings etc that I might not be able to get the Ethernet working again once it is plugged in and back up and running.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

A:How can I switch to WIFI from Ethernet instantly??

You can have both plugged in and still work. Each NIC is assigned a metric and the NIC with the lowest metric will be used. If in your are the wired NIC is still seen as available but in fact it's having problems the computer will still try and use it unless you unplug the cable. If your computer supports a feature called LAN/WLAN switching that may work in your case that may work or may suffer from the same problem in which the wired NIC is still detected as connected and it won't switch. If you are only having an issue with the wired connection why not just stay on wireless?

I am having a problem with an ethernet switch that is locking up, trying to find the root cause.

The switch is a 16 port, 10/100Mbps, Linksys model EZXS16W. I have three computers connected to it:
Computer "A" is a Windows XP Pro machine running a FTPD server (Guild FTPD).
Computers "B" and "C" are CPU boards in an avionics box, both running VxWorks.

When the avionics box powers up, computers "B" and "C" attempt to communicate with computer "A", both using port 5000. After a few seconds computer "A" reports an error that it is unable to communicate with computer "B".

At this point I tried to ping computers "B" and "C" using computer "A" (ping fails), And tried pinging all three using a fourth computer connected to the switch (also fails). I concluded the switch is locked up. Power cycling the switch restores operation until it locks up again.

I tried two other identical EZSX16W switches (same revision, same firmware) with multiple avionics boxes:
Two of the three switches always lock up when used with the first avionics box.
None of the switches lock up when used with other avionics boxes.
Two D-Link switches do not lock up when used with any avionics box.
None of the switches lock up since I updated software in the first avionics box.

A:Solved: Ethernet Switch Lockup

I'm not familiar with that switch. But if the customer wants to know why, you would have to do some more exhaustive troubleshooting. The first step is to look at the switch port the problem avionics box is plugged in to. You need a switch that can give you detailed information on what is happening on that switch port. Whether the connection is dropping out of full duplex, if there are collisions, runts, giants, CRC errors, etc, etc. To get that type of information you're looking at fully managed switch. If those don't give you any clues, you'll then have to either connect a hub in line or port mirror that port so you can do packet captures with a sniffer.

I've set up two routers (one a primary router and the second as an access point to extend my wifi). They are currently in the same room connected together a by 1 metre cable and everything is working fine.
However, I need to move the second router upstairs and trying to replicate the connection between the two routers. The house is wired with network points and cables which all feed into a 24 Port Planet 10/100Mbps Ethernet Switch.
I've located the wall socket/ethernet port number (No. 6) from which the primary room is located and connected and similar the second router in the upstairs room (No. 2).
As its going into an ethernet switch, I thought that should automatic connect routers on the network. However, when I try to access the second router (via WIFI), its not connecting to the internet which is likely because the two routers are no longer connected.
I tested the two sockets (No. 6 and No. 2) with one of those cable testers and I did get a signal on both ends, so not sure what is going on. To my mind, the routers should be connected.
Can anyone help?

A:Connect 2 routers via Ethernet Switch

From your description it should work.
Go back to step one with two routers connected by the 1M cable and double check you get a wifi connection to the internet.
Plug Primary router into wall socket and secondary router into other end of cable, before the switch - check connection.
Recconect switch and plug secondary router to switch with 1M cable - check connection.
Reconnect switch and try secondary router in desired location - check connection.
A bit of hassle but will identify where the connection is failing.

I'm having a problem connecting my Nashutec printer / photcopier to my computer. All was well until I changed to Talk Talk and went wireless for my internet connection.
Previously I connected to the internet via an adsl modem card in my pc but I took this card out and have a wireless connection to a Dlink wireless router. This works OK.
However to install the modem on the pc I had to use an ethernet cable to connect first time. I have only one ethernet plug in the pc connecting to the Intel Pro/100 connection. After the router was set up and I plugged the cable back in for the printer I couldn't connect to it. I get a message saying limited or no connectivity. When I click repair it says it can't because it can't find the IP address.
I'm running XP SP2 Pentium R 240GHz processor with 540MB ram
The autoconfig IP adress I get for the network connection is 169.254.168.233
The lights are on the Ethernet switch box and the cables seem to be OK as the lights flash at both ends.
has anybody got any suggestions as to how I can get my connection back?
Thanks

Hi, Im having a ACT Broadband internet connection, he provides internet connection through a wire which runs into my room that can be directly connected to the my computers NIC. Whenever i switch on my computer and opens the browser it first redirects to the page - http://portal.acttv.in/, where it asks for Username & Password, our ISP gives us a IP Address which displays on the web page after logging in. I want the internet connection to be shared with my roommates so i bought a 8 port Ethernet switch (http://www.intexuae.com/SWITCH-8-PORT.htm), which is having a uplink port also. I have connected the wire given by the ISP to the up link port of the switch & i connected my PC to one port of the switch with another network cable. I also connected my friends PC to second port of switch with another network cable, my problem is that when i sign into my ISP web page and start using the internet & my friend also wants internet in his PC & when he opens the browser the ISP's webpage is appearing and when he sign's in internet is disconnecting in my Pc. I tried to change the IP but as a default IP is given by the ISP if change the IP internet is not working. Please provide me a solution.

A:How to share Internet connection using ethernet switch ?

I dont think you need to open your ISPs webpage on your second PC, just configure the network settings and put the gateway IP. If that doesn't work, use Windows ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) and configure it using the Network Configuration wizard. See how it goes. What is the windows version you are using ?

Hello everybody, I am in some distress, and would greatly appreciate your help

Here is my set up
Alright so my laptop and PCs (a) and (b) have the access to the internet. however my router sees only these three devices connected, as if my ethernet switch was not connected to the router. My problem is that the switch seems to work sometimes. Vonage is apparently having issues with the network setup so it doesn't work, same with my PS3, however the PC hooked up to the switch as well, sometime has internet and sometimes it doesn't. When it does have internet, Windows Xp pops out saying that there is an IP conflict with another PC on the network and then the connection is out. Any ideas of what is screwing up on my network? Any help would be greatly appriciated.

PS the ethernet switch is made by company Airlink
the modem is made by RCA
and the router is made by Linksys if that helps
 

A:Solved: ethernet switch possibly not recognized by my router

The exact make/model of the modem, router, and switch would be real useful here.

What you seem to be describing is a flaky switch or cable, not much can affect a simple switch in that manner.

As far as the duplicate IP addresses on the network, that could well be a different issue.

Turn off everything on the network, ALL the machines and any other network device like network printers and NAS drives.
Turn off the router and modem.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady data light.
Turn on the router, wait two minutes.
Turn on the network devices and computers, one at a time.

This issue is usually caused by resetting a router without resetting all the network connected devices.

Another issue that will cause duplicate IP addresses is assigning static IP addresses to devices that conflict with the router's DHCP address range. If you require static IP addressed devices on the network, they should be configured to be in the same subnet but outside the address range defined for the DHCP server.

Hey, all. For a couple years now, I have been using a 5 -port Linksys Etherfast switch to hook a Panasonic blu ray player & DishNetwork Box to the internet via my home network. I had the switch plugged into a gaming adapter. Worked fine, until I had to replace my router. Was using a Linksys WRT54G router and the switch & router communicated flawlessly.. didn't even have to set it up manually when I first added the switch. Did all this to avoid dropping more wires into my back bedroom.

I upgraded to Cisco (Linksys) E3000 Gigabit router, and the switch will not "talk" to the new router. DHCP's enabled, and both the bluray player & Dish box tried to autoconnect using DHCP.. no dice. Tried several hard resets on all devices mentioned above, even firmware update on the new router. No dice.

So here's my question : do you think it's just an incompatibility question? If I buy an Gigabit ethernet switch, do you think that will fix the communication problem?

I was thinking if you go gibabit to gigabit.. It might be more compatible. I wanted some expert opinions though, before I go dropping another $30-40 on a new switch.

I read about creating ethernet bridges using DD-WRT firmware, but it seems daunting. I am not a complete noob, but it seemed beyond what I wanted to bite off.

Thanks in advance you guys & gals!

Hi all,

I was wondering how an Ethernet switch forwards packets of network information. Does it send the packets to all outputs? If so, is it like a hub? Does it know where computers are and only send the packets to the right place? If so how would it know where the computers are?

I've been wondering about this for some time but haven't been able to find the answer.

I recently purchased a NAS Drive which works ok. However I have also found out that my Sky Hub only supports <100Mbps.

The problems I have is when copying to the NAS drive I only get write speeds of around 10-12MBps which sounds about right being around 1/8 of the 100Mbps. Also when I stream I get a lot of buffering/cut out with any HD content streaming to my Xbox 360.

I just wanted to know if unplugging everything from the router and into a gigabit Ethernet switch then connecting that to the router will speed everything up? Or would I be better off going all out on a pricey router?

Basically am I right in thinking the switch will bypass the router for anything not using the internet?

As my PC will be moved upstairs soon where there is no way to get a ethernet cable any more,
I will be forced to go wireless...
I have never wanted it and never used it except on my mothers laptop witch is obviously built-in.
So my experience with wireless stuff is very low...

some fact that may play a role for your comments:
-from PC to modem/router threw the walls will be about 8 yards max.
-there is a chimney in the direct path from PC to modem/router.
-there is barely any metals used in the house although the modem is placed next to the water-main.
-the laptop of my mother never had any issues and is about 2 years old cant tell you the what hardware it used ATM.

Now what I want:
-I want my 6.4 MB/sec speed (other wireless devices dont play any role > mom laptop (80% facebook and 5% mails and 5% searching the web and the rest is youtube lol ; and the smart TV really doesn't do anything except for streaming some video clips very rarely.

- I NEVER want to get disconnected!! not even for a millisecond if you catch my drift.

- I prefer an internal piece of hardware witch I have a PCI slot for with the room. Although I would also like to be able to give internet to multiple PC's or whatever , ya never know ; LAN party for example...

I have had a long time problem with Windows Live Mail. Specifically, when I want to forward an email containing several (e.g., 10) inline pictures (embedded, not attached), I first want to "clean" the message, which contains the header information of the person who sent it to me, vertical bars on the left, some sort of ad at the bottom, like Incredimail, etc. The easy way to do that is mark (highlight) only what you want to forward, hit copy, then hit Ctrl/A to highlight everything and hit Delete. That wipes everything out of the email. Now you hit Paste to paste back what you copied.

Problem is that most of the time, instead of the system pasting what I copied, it pastes a repeat of the LAST picture for every picture that was in the email. IOW, if there were 10 different pictures in the email and the last picture was a monkey, I get 10 pictures of the monkey.

I have tried repairing WLM, but it doesn't solve the problem.

P.S. This does NOT happen if I use Thunderbird.

Hello all,

From time to time I get an email from people that has multiple images embedded in the email (not as attachments).

Does anyone know of a simple way to download all those images as once to keep from having to a right click and save as for every single image?

I am running Firefox 3.0 and generally use Gmail.

Thanks
David
 

A:downloading inline images (gmail)

While those are embedded, they are still individual files - just like if you want
multiple pictures from a website - you have to get them one at a time.

I would say the easiest/best way is to POP3 gmail. When the emails are on
your hard drive and you use Windows Mail or Outlook Express you have
many options available that are not available on websites. Since you use
Firefox, you might prefer to use Thunderbird for a client.

Using a client does not prevent you from still going to the website if you
want. You can find copies of all your emails sitting in the sent items
folder at gmail - unless you deleted them.

If when you click on one of these icons to insert it as an attachment to an e-mail, or to embed it in an e-mail, does it still attach / embed ?

I tried to copy and paste the icon back into "drafts" but it reverted to the "inline image" box again. Do you think "inline image" is the way Gmail stores icons when there are too many of them? Thanks for your time.

My windows xp sp2 computer has been crashing every 1-2 days during the past couple weeks. The screen blacks out suddenly and restarts, no error or bluescreen. Today I checked my AVG free, which happily reported everything is clean and clear, but I checked the logs and they tell a different story. The last successful scan 2 weeks ago reports the following:

Inline hook ntoskrnl.exe _abnormal_termination+0x20B -> 0x804E2ED7
 
Subsequent full and rootkit scans with AVG yield no results and only report scanning a few thousand objects instead of the hundreds of thousands of objects reported in each scan prior to the one which found the inline hook.
An MBAM scan only found and deleted a randomly named temporary file (PUP.Optional.Amonetize.A).
However, besides the rare restarts, I have yet to notice any other effects, so I may be overreacting. I greatly appreciate the professional advice and thank you for your services.

Greetings, and my sincere apologies for the very lengthy narrative.
 
I have a laptop running Windows 7 64-Bit Premium Home Edition. I've always used Avast as my anti-virus, along with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Last week I ran a routine full system scan with Avast, and the end result was no infections found, but it also said that a large amount of files could not be scanned. I ran the full system scan a few more times and kept getting this same result that a lot of files could not be scanned (dozens, if not into the 100-200 range). This was very out of the ordinary, so I downloaded two more antivirus programs to perform full scans and see what they came up with. I realize now, after reading many other similar topics after the fact, that you should not run more than one antivirus program on one computer, but I did not now it at the time. I also ran MBAM, but it found no infections.
 
I installed and ran a full scan with Comodo, but it said I was not infected, and did not state that there were any files that couldn't be scanned. The second program I downloaded and ran a full system scan with (including rootkits) was AVG 2015. When this scan concluded, the report said that it found and fixed about 19 threats, and one other that it found but could not fix. The one it could not do anything about was an infection of my machine with Inline hook win32k.sys. I could not get the location of where it was located, and couldn't really do anything else other than to close t... Read more

A:Possible - Inline hook win32k.sys - Infection

I seriously doubt there is any malware on the computer. But....due to the install of the free antivirus programs it is likely you have installed their adware.
You can run the programs below to find and remove adware and malware. Often programs leave or install unnecessary startup entrees and we can check those too. Which
may be responsible for the recent slowness or not.
 
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Hi. A friend of mine often sends me emails with 'inline' attachments, usually gif or html. There are a number of them that I've been unable to see despite opening the email via Internet Explorer, Firefox and Windows Mail. By right clicking the attachment and selecting Properties, I have noticed that the working attachments all have a standard address ? http. However, the attachments which don't work all have an address beginning 'cid' and the Protocol and File Type are both shown as 'unknown'.


Can anyone tell me what the problem is here e.g. is my friend perhaps choosing a corrupted file to attach to his emails? If not, how do I view the attachments?


Thanks in advance.

A:Can't view 'inline' attachment to email.

It sounds like your friend is sending you inline attachments that are not standard, however, if they are standard file and you are using Windows Mail, make sure the following option is correct.

1. In Windows Mail, click "tools"
2. Click "options"
3. Click "security"
4. Make sure under "download images" that the "block images" box is unticked.

That should solve your problem.

OK...so I'm a security analyst, not a network engineer. As such, all my understanding of how networks are set up is basically conceptual. That said, I have a few extra computers laying around, and decided to run a NIDS on my home network. The machine I plan to use as a sensor has two ethernet NICs and a wifi card. Basically, I want to plug the modem into one ethernet port, and the router into the other, and have the machine inspect the packets as they pass through...this should give me visibility on every packet that enters or leaves my network. Problem is, I have no idea how to configure this. I wish it was as easy as 'plug and play,' but clearly that isn't going to work. How do I set up the machine to take traffic coming from the modem on one ethernet card, and pass it along to the router on the other?

Let's see...my router, unfortunately, is not configurable for SPAN, so that won't work. I have a DIR-868L Wireless AC router, and the machine I want to use as a sensor is running Windows 8.1

What other information might anyone need in order to help me out with this?
 

A:Using a multihomed PC to sniff traffic inline

Let's sync up on the concept, you want

ISP=>modem<--->MonitoringPC<-->siteRouter <- - -> all lan attached users.

You realize that the MonitoringPC will need to disable its firewall and thus be exposed to all sorts of exposures.

You have at least two instrumentation points (a) the modem-side port vs (b) the router side port AND
you need the routing table tweaked.

If you place software between (a) & (b) ports, then there's a proxy to be configured.

Hi Everyone.

I had to do a destructive reformat, and I finally have all programs back in, however, now auto complete won't work in IE6 (or Avant). I work on the computer, and auto complete is a lifesaver for me.

I have read and read on possible problems/issues and I can't seem to find a fix. Everything that should be checked off is. I just don't know what I am missing. I reinstalled SP2 hoping that would fix the IE problem. It didn't.

Does anyone have any suggestions? It would be sooooo appreciated!

Hello, I am not very well versed in computers but it was a matter of pride (until a bit ago) that I never had a virus and then last week I ran AVG and this came up.
 
I did a bit of research and couldn't figure out what happened so I did a long over-due system reset. I noticed that after reset I installed my usual anti-virus and ran into the same inline hook issue. It was not until I ran into this forum that I saw the potential issue. I had Avast and AVG installed simultaneously and that might've caused the issue. I uninstalled Avast and ran AVG and sure enough no dice. I followed the instructions in this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/518253/inline-hook-win32ksys-rootkit-maybe-impossible-to-remove/ however I was wondering if the trojan itself was just a false positive. Running the steps described in the thread did not give any fruit. Am I safe in assuming that running the uninstall tool on my system (as well as taking the measures described) mean I am clean?
 
The only way I thought to run AVG before all this happened was because whenever I would load a web browser, the application would freeze and close.
 
Thank you very much for reading!

A:inline hook win32 trojan question

I think it is obvious that what AVG reported was a false positive. But using AVG most likely did install AVG adware.
Suggest you open your browser(s) and look for added extensions such as Browser Protect or Search Protect. If there Remove/ uninstall.
You should also check in your list of installed programs for other AVG added programs and uninstall them.
 
You can double check for adware and malware by using the three programs below and cleaning up the computer using CCleaner. You can also use
CCleaner's tools to view the startups and browser add-ons.

I have had a long time problem with Windows Live Mail. Specifically, when I want to forward an email containing several (e.g., 10) inline pictures (embedded, not attached), I first want to "clean" the message, which contains the header information of the person who sent it to me, vertical bars on the left, some sort of ad at the bottom, like Incredimail, etc. The easy way to do that is mark (highlight) only what you want to forward, hit copy, then hit Ctrl/A to highlight everything and hit Delete. That wipes everything out of the email. Now you hit Paste to paste back what you copied.

Problem is that most of the time, instead of the system pasting what I copied, it pastes a repeat of the LAST picture for every picture that was in the email. IOW, if there were 10 different pictures in the email and the last picture was a monkey, I get 10 pictures of the monkey.

I have tried repairing WLM, but it doesn't solve the problem.

Hi there, recently i was asked if i would want to take on a networking job for a buddy that is opening up new office soon. He only offered b/c i recently got laid off, have a decent amount of knowledge with computers and networking, he can trust me....and not to mention probably save himself some money too. Right now my response is still undecided b/c he is a real perfectionist amongst other things....

Ill get to the point.... Basically im wondering if there are any downsides connection wise to using inline keystone couplers ( RJ45 to Rj45 ), when compared to the regular keystone jacks that require the wires to be punched on the tail end.

Inline keystone coupler pic

Also, i was wondering if they make patch panels that dont require the wires to be punched either. Something similar to the inline keystone couplers mentioned above....
RJ45 going in the panel and RJ45 going out to the switch??
I looked around and didnt come up with anything relevant...but they probably word it differently for the patch panels if they do exist.

Thanks for reading, any help is greatly appreciated.

P.S. Ideally, I plan on utilizing CAT6 for the whole project. CAT6 capable patch panel, panel to switch cables, cable runs, keystones, computer end cables. But i have to price the difference out between CAT6 and CAT5E cable and equipment once i get an idea of how big or small this office is
 

A:Inline keystone couplers and patch panel questions

There's no downside to using the couplers that I know of. I'd minimize the use of any connections between the equipment, but one or two of these is not an issue.

Personally, I'd go with CAT5e if there's any significant price difference, it's rated for gigabit service, and it pretty inexpensive nowadays.

Using a Windows 7 computer.
 
About two weeks ago, sometimes I would not be able to access certain websites in my web browser, google chrome, and it says "This webpage is not available." I ran a diagnostic with windows which said that my DNS server is not responding so I tried some things to make sure that it would work. After that didn't work, I ran a virus scan with AVG and Avast. Avast found nothing while AVG found two things. They were:
"";"Inline hook win32k.sys EngSetPointerTag+0x190 -> 0xFFFFF95F8023D132, <unknown>";"Infected"
"";"Inline hook win32k.sys EngFntCacheLookUp+0xFFFFF95F8012A981, <unknown>";"Infected"
So then I downloaded malwarebytes and mbar, started my computer in safe mode while disconnected from the internet, scanned with both of those, avast, and AVG, and deleted everything that they found. I started my computer again and it still had the problem. I then started to search for this problem on the internet and apparently no one can really fix this. Someone even used nuke.bat in the Avenger, and it didn't get rid of it. I am at a complete loss at what to do. Please help.

I believe your problem is that you have two antivirus applications running at one time.
 
I suggest that you uninstall both of them.
 
Then run the removal tools and reboot after each.

Hello, I have a dell 8250 that i am pretty happy with but have noticed that i need more ram. I have 512 now but several programs that i run suck up much of it. I have just purchased 2 new 512 modules for this thing and plan on pulling the 256 sticks out and replace them with the new ones. My question is i know i need to put rambus in matched pairs but can i have a pair of 512 and a pair of 256? any ideas? also i was thinking about wiping out my main drive for a complete clean reinstall. Is that a little overkill? opinions requested. thanks for your time.

Good question--try it--I don't think it will work, but all it can do is not boot.

Hi,
 
I got a slight shock when I did a scan with AVG today and found what's stated in the title above. See attached pictures of log from AVG:
 
http://imgur.com/a/PLKzE
 
After google failing to give me a good answer (mainly a lot of "blogs" recommending downloading anti spyware-something something and delete some winreg entries), I tried to locate all files named win32k.sys and uploading them to virustotal.com. Think I uploaded about 6-9 now, with no threats detected.
 
I don't have any funny or odd looking services running in task manager as far as I've can tell (checked off show all users and googled some of the processes). My CPU-usage as I write this is between 2-10 %, staying mostly around 2-4 %. 
 
That is how far I got on my own, and to be honest I'm a bit lost now. I suspect that this is a false positive. At the same time, if I'm wrong, inline hook seems like some nasty business. Also I'm confused by the "part of operating system".
 
For information, the ESEA client is a 3rd party client used to play Counter-strike: Global Offensive. It's a really intrusive anti cheat, and has been known to get detected as malware/trojan/virus by other anti virus programs.
 
Please note that the 2nd detection, ESEA, only appeared after i ran CCleaner (and did a re-scan in the hope that inline hook would go away).
 
So my question is, should I not worry about this? Or should i dig deeper? I apologize if I miss any information needed. ... Read more

A:AVG detects Inline hook win32k.sys (part of operating system) - false positive?

Hi ddrz Personally for me, you answered your own question.For information, the ESEA client is a 3rd party client used to play Counter-strike: Global Offensive. It's a really intrusive anti cheat, and has been known to get detected as malware/trojan/virus by other anti virus programs.Take a look at the thread below.https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/1r2uca/how_to_uninstall_esea_client_remove_kernal_driver/ESEA is indeed knowns to use very, very intrusive methods to prevent you from cheating on CS:GO, so it doesn't surprise me that AVG would detect it as being malicious. If I didn't know what ESEA is and how it works, I would suspect it of being malicious as well.Is it possible for you to upload the file below to VirusTotal and post the URL to the results here?C:\Users\$USERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\ESEADriver2.sys

I have Windows 7 Professional on my PC. In the first load I had, the PC should automatically detect if the LAN cable was plugged in, turn off the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable was now in use.
Unfortunately, I had to reload my PC, and since then I can't get it to do it again.
So, what I'd like to achieve is this: Have Windows automatically detect when the cable is plugged in, turn of the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable is in use - and, obviously, vice versa.
Can someone tell me what I need to do, please?

A:Have Windows 7 automatically switch to LAN when cable is plugged in and switch to wireless when it's removed

Hi,
There are two methods can help you.
1. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings> and right click your wired and wireless adapters one at a time to change the properties. Select IPv4, click <Properties>
then click <Advanced>. For each one, clear the "Automatic metric" check box and assign the metric value manually. Setting your wired adapter?s metric value lower than wireless adapter one, such as ?1? for wired adapter and ?2? for wired adapter.

2. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings>,
hold down 'alt' to bring up the "File" menu, select "Advanced", select
"Advanced Settings" from the dropdown menu, adjust the priority of your wired adapter higher than your wireless adapter in the "Advanced Settings" window under the "Adapters and Bindings" tab.
Hope this helps.Please remember to click ?Mark as Answer? on the post that helps you, and to click ?Unmark as Answer? if a marked post does not actually answer your question. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread.

Need to no if I have this right

they have a dsl modem going to a Linksys router to a 24 port switch then to a little 4 port switch. sure, so then Would it be modem to router then router to any port on the big switch or is there an uplink port on the big switch it should go to? then you would hook a cat5e from one of the regular ports on the 24 port switch and run it to the uplink port on the 4 port switch need to no if the whole sequence is right. Hope someone can help, john will told me the cable would go from the big switch to the uplink on the small switch but I am wondering if I have it all right or not and wonderiing about from the router to the 24 port switch does the cable just go in a regular port in the big switch or if there is an uplink port does it go there. Hope you can understand my rambleing here. Thanks (please don't send me to a link) just need to no modem to router to regular port or uplink port on 24 port switch then from regular port on 24 port switch to uplink port on the 4 port switch. Thanks
 

A:Solved: Windows xp hookup question for modem, router, switch, to switch?

Router to uplink port on 24 port switch, and then normal port on the 24 port switch to uplink port on the second 4 port switch. An auto-MDX port on a device negates the need to worry about uplink ports for that particular cable connection.
