Jumbo Frames

TCAT Shelbyville - Technical Blog

In a gigabit network, you should enable jumbo frames and tweak the jumbo frame settings on your nic so that large files can transfer at greater speeds.  In a packet of data, the header will remain the same but the payload size will increase.  You should do this if you have gigabit switches and gigabit cards in place.  Normally network cards will allow for tweaks of the Jumbo frame by several MTUs.   With gigabit switches in place, the receiving switches may be 10/100 and the computer on the other end will not see a great benefit from this.  However if you have cards in computers that are connected to a switch (1000 mbps/1 Gbps)  and a NAS that supports Jumbo frames, the data transfer from these computers (normally a Server) will benefit from this tweak.

Ideally you would want your entire network on gigabit.   In today’s economy,  many if not most…

Don’t daisy chain switches

TCAT Shelbyville - Technical Blog

When you are networking computers, wireless access points, printers and other nodes in multiple rooms, try to avoid daisy-chaining switches or using small 4-8 port switches when you are in a hurry.  Replace any hubs on your network as soon as you can.

With a hub, collisions can be >20% and utilization can stand at >50%.   By replacing a hub alone, you can reduce collisions to 5% on switches in rooms and <1% in the server room.  Switches help to isolate traffic, relieve congestion, separate collision domains (reduce collisions), segment and restart distance/repeater rules.

Daisy Chaining Switches -what not to do

Real world scenarios may require you to temporarily daisy chain switches.  If you do, test the network and run additional backbones or replace core switches to accommodate more nodes as soon as you can. (remember, replace any hubs in your network)

Daisy chaining

One of many solutions is to run independent lines…

Cannot access computer by NetBios name after replacing NIC card

TCAT Shelbyville - Technical Blog

If you have ever replaced a network card on a server or computer and you can no longer access the computer, you should flush any cache on the workstation that is accessing the server.

Insure no other users are logged in –

Open a Command Prompt as an Administrator (Type CMD in the search box)

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

nbtstat –s

nbtstat -r

nbtstat –c

nbtstat –R

nbtstat -RR

nbtstat –n

nbtstat -a xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx      (replace the x’s with the IP address of the computer you are accessing – the computer with the new NIC card)

Also insure the NetBIOS over TCP/IP radio button is selected. (See Below)

To enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2:

  1. Click Start, and then click Network. (click Start, type ncpa.cpl into the search box for Windows 7 or Vista, hit ENTER).
  2. Click on the Network and Sharing…

All In One FREE Data Recovery Suite

What's On My PC

Recently I featured an article, titled A Successful Data Recovery Story Using Some Desperation Moves where the hero of the day was a software application called MiniTool Power Data Recovery.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery

I realize there are numerous undelete recovery apps out there, but for some reason I always go to this app to get the job done. I have found it seems to dig a little deeper than most when recovering deleted data.

In addition, MiniTool Power Data Recovery is a “data recovery suite” which means it does more than the standard apps that are available.

For example, MiniTool Power Data Recovery has the ability to:

Your Wireless Printer may be giving away your documents

When installing any device such as home routers and printers, you should always password protect these devices.  During our studies in Network Security in the past, we studied perimeter security and how it was at the firewall.  Today because of wireless, perimeters are extended well beyond most property lines.

What does that mean?  Someone can drive by and gain access or go across the internet if a public ip address is given to the printer.  With simple Google searches anyone can find these printers.  No, we aren’t going to give you the answer on how to Google these unsecure printers but you do need to secure your printer(s) if they are unsecure.  (During the setup, set a login other than the default for any device you put on your network).   There is code on the web to gain access to your network and computers through some of the printers.   Script Kiddies and hackers that can get access can connect to the printer and print hundreds of test pages or change settings just to be malicious.

Note: Mobile computing also extends your perimeters globally…security is one of the most important areas that all IT personnel and employees need to be trained in.

One in four wireless networks are still unsecure

Annually our class studies wireless technology and its implementation into homes and industry.   Surveys are conducted to analyze security used, transmit power and geographic location of wireless technology.

According to Wigle.net, Security has improved over past years.  Home users are still setting up their wireless wrong by not providing a WPA2 (AES) form of encryption.

Approximately 23% of home users still have open internet that neighbors or anyone passing by can use.    Vendors have tried to make setting up wireless easy and secure by providing WPS and/or a setup utility disk that walks the user through step by step.  Once you have secure wireless, you should change the password periodically to prevent users from learning what your passphrase is.

Wigle provides a map of wireless throughout the globe.  As users find wireless, they upload their data to Wigle and the database is free to the public.

With GPS technology today, anyone including malicious wardrivers can map out coordinates of unsecured wifi.  Make sure you secure your wifi.

Note:  During a survey we do not use packet analyzers or methods to see data on the wireless networks.

Network troubleshooting with Netsh

Every have that laptop or netbook that connects to your computer but won’t go online at another location? You can quickly rebuild the IP stack and force the computer to get online at another location by typing the following command:

netsh int ip reset C:iplog.txt

Of course if you have a computer that won’t get online even if it has an ip address, do several things –

  • Click Start Menu, type cmd in the search box or run box ( Hold down Ctrl + Shift and hit Enter)Type the following commands, each followed by pressing enter.
  • ipconfig /flushdns
  • nbtstat -R
  • nbtstat -RR
  • netsh int reset all
  • netsh int ipv4 reset
  • netsh winsock reset catalog
This will rebuild the tcp/ip protocol stack (fully)

After rebooting, run a command prompt as an administrator and type:

  • netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

Reboot


How about tweaking your network for a little more speed?

Here’s a set of quick tweaks to adjust Windows 7 networking.  Always backup your computer before performing any tweak.

Open a command prompt as an administrator and type the following –

netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=default
netsh int tcp set global chimney=enabled
netsh int tcp set global dca=enabled
netsh int tcp set global netdma=enabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled

CTCP or Compound TCP – Improves throughput
ECN-provides routers with an alternate method of communicating network congestion
TCP Chimney Offload – Offloads all TCP processing for a connection to your network adapter
Direct Cache Access (DCA) – or direct cache access allows a network controller to deliever data directly to your cpu cache
NetDMA – enables support for advanced direct memory access.
TCP Autotuning – RWIN auto tuning behavior
Heuristics – Windows 7 has the ability to automatically change its own TCP Window auto-tuning behavior

To return to your default settings, go to a command prompt as an administrator and type –

netsh int tcp set heuristics default
netsh int tcp set global chimney=default
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=default
netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=default
netsh int tcp set global netdma=disable
netsh int tcp set global dca=auto

If you have trouble navigating to sites and time out to Facebook or Microsoft for example, or you want to improve your download speeds -you may need to set your MTU settings –

So what do you set your MTU to?  Normally your MTU is set to 1500.   Every connection is different.  First log into your router if you have one and set it to 1492.  Retry the sites that are timing out.  If this did not work, you may need to set the MTU on your network card.

Use TCPOptimizer for Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 (easy) –

or you can go to a command prompt (as an administrator with elevated privileges) and type –

netsh interface ipv4 show subinterface

(to see the name of your network Interface – it is important to write down the MTU settings and network interface name at this time)

To set the MTU value to 1472 (you can also try 1492, type the following command at a a command prompt (Note: You MUST substitute the name of your network connection  –

netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “The Name of Your Connection” mtu=1472 store=persistent

Many users have reported an increase in download and internet speeds after adjusting their MTU to 1472.  This setting may not be the optimal setting everyone.

Modify LLMNR by doing the following:

Modify Group Policy – Go to Search – Type GPEdit.msc – Enter – Navigate to the following and make sure Enabled is checked – Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\DNS Client
\Turn off Multicast Name Resolution = Enabled


How is your network card and computer routing?

Use the following command to see the routing table – from the command prompt type –

netsh interface  ipv4 show route

Change network adapter priorities in Windows 10 – PowerShell

First thing –

  • disable network adapters you don’t use
  • If you use Ethernet, disable everything but flow control
  • Disable LLMNR
  • Adjust NTLM
  • Perform test with Totusoft’s network speed test

Next, avoid latency of your network card by adjusting the network adapter priorities.

Open PowerShell as an Administrator – Type Get-NetIPInterface

netipinterface

You will see the Interfacemetric numbers that vary from 11 to 90.

If you want a higher priority, set the interface to a lower number – I use wi-fi – therefore I can type the command –

Set-NetIPInterface -InterfaceIndex “11” -InterfaceMetric “11”

adjusted

Our old article on using the GUI 

If you use more than one network card for mutliple LANS or connections, you can set the metric of each card to send IP packets through the fastest card first or the desired card.

For instance if you have a network card that connects to other servers and computers on one LAN and a network card that connects to a separate LAN that has security cameras; metrics can be used to compute the routing algorithm.

The one card would be set to a lower metric in order to go to the web and the security camera system would be set to a higher metric thus giving priority to the lower number.

Here’s an example of my home LAN which uses a printer and cameras on a separate network and my wireless which connects to the Internet.

So how do you change it?  Open the Network and Sharing Center – Click on Adapters – Right click the desired adapter – Select Properties – Double click TCP/IP – Click Advanced – Uncheck the Automatic Metric – Change to the desired number

Wireless

Above the wireless is set to 1.  Below the LAN which has a static IP address and no Gateway is configured with a 20.

Valid values are 1 to 9999.

Don’t forget to set the binding order of the network cards.   Go to the Adapter.  Hit the ‘Alt’ key once for the menu.  Click on Advanced and then Advanced Settings.

Move the network card with a higher priority to the top.

Link aggregation – Use Multiple NIC Cards

There is truly an advantage to adding multiple NIC cards to a computer.   It won’t speed up a single internet connection but it can help with loss of signal, detecting access points, transferring information to and  from computers.

When adding a second NIC card to a computer, you can highlight both by holding down the CTRL key and clicking on them and then right clicking to bridge the connections so they act as one…this can allow you to bridge a wireless network to a wired network.

Internet or network application slow? You may need to temporarily disable Nagle’s Algorithm

With the Nagle-Algorithm, Windows takes small packets and packages them in to more manageable and efficient sizes.   If you have poor latency, you might try to disable the Nagle-Algorithm.  Nagle’s algorithm helps to control congestion when small packets are sent continuously by TCP.   When enabled, this helps to prevent a flood of these packets.

More information – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagle’s_algorithm

How to disable Nagle’s algorithm-

Open regedit.exe.  Navigate to HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\

Find the interface that has your current IP address (see example below)

Find IP address

Add the following values and make sure they are set to 1.

TcpAckFrequency and TCPNoDelay

Add values

This is only a temporary fix for the reduction of some applications on the internet.  Once your project or need is fulfilled, you should re-enable the algorithm by deleting the keys and rebooting or changing the values.

Is your AHCI Link Power Management viewable from the Power Options Console?

If you can’t see your AHCI Link Power Management from the Power Options, there is a way to add it.  Always backup your computer before modifying the registry.

ahci-link-power-management

You can add the GUID to the registry by going opening the registry (regedit) and creating  a key under the following key -0012ee47-9041-4b5d-9b77-535fba8b1442

The easiest way is to copy the information in italics to notepad or notepad++ and save as AHCI.reg.

After saving this, double click on the .reg file and reboot.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\0012ee47-9041-4b5d-9b77-535fba8b1442\0b2d69d7-a2a1-449c-9680-f91c70521c60]

NetSpot’s Discover Mode collects details about surrounding Wi-Fi networks and returns the data in a detailed table that provides information about the SSID, MAC address, Channel, Security, Vendor, Signal Information (including Average, Max and Min.).  This app also gives you Noise levels for wireless professionals to calculate an exact signal strength.  The real-time charts gives accurate information about 2.4 and 5Ghz frequencies.  NetSpot allows you to download historical information in a CSV file for accurate record keeping.  (More information on Discover Mode will follow in this series.)

The application can be downloaded from here.   The download is a tiny 1.2mb download.  The installation and operation is easy.

Operating the software in Survey Mode is easy.  Simply open the application, upload your map (selecting your approximate measurement) and start your survey by standing near your AP after selecting it, wait a few seconds and then click your mouse.   An accurate signal and information about the AP will give you a heatmap of the immediate area overlaying the information on the map.

To insure an accurate signal is measured it is import to stand in the area for a few seconds then click your mouse.   During our survey, we took several screenshots to show the accuracy of the application as we performed a very basic survey.

Given more time, and more mouse clicks, the accuracy of the survey will of course go up.

During the review, we used two identical laptops with identical drivers and operating systems (Windows 10).  With two individuals using NetSpot, you’ll find the accuracy of the initial survey between the screenshots below is very similar.

The individuals walked side by side to compare readings throughout the survey.

As you can see, this application is a critical application in today’s world because of wireless connectivity growth and complexity.  This application helps to show coverage area and is an important tool for IT professionals when verifying and troubleshooting your wireless connectivity.

Look for parts two and three in the upcoming weeks.  We will update this post and link each post as time permits.

NEW – Software Downloads Page (with hundreds of titles — updated daily)

Excellent! Great resource.

What's On My PC

Just did a revamping of the software Downloads Page…  The page consists of feeds from numerous reputable software and app sites that primarily specializes in FREE software. I am currently using this as my “go to” source to review software listings and to see what is new and/or has been updated. The list is very, very long…  If you hover your mouse pointer over a software title that interests you, a floating description will appear.
