    Help with Asterisk Enterprise Edition

    I've had good luck with 20+ station installs using Polycom IP301 and IP600 phones.

    should pings within your LAN always be <1ms?

    A 100Mb, full-duplex network that isn't operating in the Black Hole of Calcutta should have sub 1ms ping times, yes. The slowest modern pings should be coming from 11Mb .11b LANs, and they are right around 2ms.

    2 routers on network?

    Your suggestion is called a 'back channel', and it could work just fine. You will probably find, though, that you are working with the routing tables on the individual workstations more than the routers, with this type of configuration. Whether that is ok with you or not... that's your call. It...

    2 routers on network?

    Ok, I see a couple of problems. 1) Your brother's router is NATing, instead of purely bridging the two subnets. 2) Your router is not bridging the two subnets at all, but at least you can ping the LAN side through your bro's router. These will need to be solved in this order. After your...

    2 routers on network?

    Try pinging these: Speedy -> 192.168.0.1 Texas -> 192.168.0.99 Washington -> 192.168.0.99 Speedy -> 192.168.0.2 Speedy -> 192.168.0.3 Texas -> 192.168.1.201 If you can't hit any one of these, try pinging the broadcast addressess for each subnet from Texas and Speedy: Speedy ->...

    2 routers on network?

    Ok, I see how this is working... His router should be connected (via the WAN port) to your router (via a LAN port). Then set the gateway on your router's static route to his WAN IP and the gateway on his router's static route to your LAN IP.

    2 routers on network?

    The gateway entry should be the next hop interface toward the destination... e.g.: ROUTER(EXT. IP) -> Internet ROUTER (192.168.0.1/24) -> PC1 (192.168.0.100/24) = First subnet ROUTER(192.168.1.1/24) -> PC2 (192.168.1.100/24) = Second subnet Now, ROUTER would be dual-homed in both the...

    2 routers on network?

    With regard to all the ringing "Why?"s, it is entirely reasonable for his brother to want his own network. It is especially so, being that he already _has_ the hardware. This is just Intro to ISP 101. The previous poster could be entirely correct in asserting that it could be done with...

    2 routers on network?

    You would need to edit the routing tables for each router, adding a route from one subnet to the other (through the proper router) to each router. This generally is not possible with SOHO routers...

    Different Styles on Single line CSS and XHTML-strict

    The <strong> and <em> tags are what you are looking for. Look at their default behavior, and if you don't like it, override that behavior in your CSS.

    web/email server setup

    You need to edit the DNS record for your domain. This is usually done when you register your domain, but you could use a service like http://www.everydns.net.

    Assigned to fix network for approx 210 users. Need suggestions/advice.

    There are apartment complexes in my area that have some sort of deal with SBC wherein the residents get a special deal on DSL, so long as the apartment complex agrees to having every Internet-enabled apartment on the service. Kinda monopolistic, but you might be able to work something out with...

    And you are correct, but a burstable OC12 will give the level of connectivity that is required at that very moment, and allow for every client running BitTorrent on <insert popular, yet-to-be-released movie here>, if necessary. It really is all dependant upon how much money is on the table and...

    Assigned to fix network for approx 210 users. Need suggestions/advice.

    You will also want to look into the capabilities of the routers you have onsite. Your best option for limiting client network usage is to impose limits at the router level, port-by-port (they could all be the same access level). Forget bandwidth throttling at the ISP level, you won't be able to...
