Internet Speed ​​Test Ruckus ZoneFlex R300 AP

Internet Speed ​​Test Ruckus ZoneFlex R300 AP

I found Ruckus ZoneFlex R300 AP at a friend’s desk and since I had some free time, I immediately gave it a try.

Because I couldn’t find PoE, I used Linksys’ 12V adapter and when it turned on it looked like the picture above. Here’s a picture of the router, similar to the Ruckus Zonflex R310 but slightly smaller. If we look from the top position, the writing will be inversely proportional, because it has been designed to be installed on the roof, so that the writing position becomes normal when seen from below.

 

 

For the following topology, where DHCP is from Mikrotik and my test results with a laptop from a router where I get a bandwidth of about 80 Mbps for download and 90 Mbps for upload. I immediately tried this device.

 

 

1. DHCP IP from Mikrotik to this AP is 192.168.1.14, so I typed it directly in the browser until the following image appears, click Advanced – Accept the Risk and Continue.

 

 

2. Because I don’t know the login access, so I reset the AP, just press the Reset button for about 5-10 seconds in the on position and the AP will be like the first picture above. Login with super username and password sp-admin.

 

3. If you see red writing at the bottom, it looks like this AP was previously connected to the Ruckus Controller because there is no wireless configuration in the Configuration menu. Here’s another view on the Status menu.

 

 

4. Below is the display on the Configuration menu, there are DCHP, Static IP and PPPoE configurations for connecting to the internet.

 

 

5. Here’s what the Maintenance menu looks like, I tried upgrading from the FTP and Web options, the results fail, either because the AP has been discontinued or something else. I will look for the Local option later.

 

 

6. The following is the display on the Administration menu, there are diagnostics for Ping and Traceroute.

 

 

7. Continuing from step 5, after I searched here and downloaded it here, I finally managed to make this AP a standalone AP.

 

 

8. There are some changes as shown below and of course the Configuration menu has appeared wireless configuration.

 

 

9. To enable wireless on a 2.4G Radio or 5G Radio, simply select Enabled in Wireless Availability, then fill in the SSID and select the desired Encyrption Method and WPA configuration and click Update Settings.

 

 

Note: on 5G Radio, if I select SmartSelect Channel, the wireless on my laptop and cellphone doesn’t recognize the SSID name and after I try to change to Channel 149, it can only be detected and after I change it back to SmartSelect, it can be recognized again, whether there is bugs or something else.

10. Here are the results of testing on 2.4G Radio and 5G Radio on my laptop and cellphone, to maximize the available bandwidth, it is better to use 40 Mhz Channel Width in each Radio configuration.

Thank you

Configure Vignette Ads on Google Adsense

Configure Vignette Ads on Google Adsense

Actually, I’ve seen this type of ad, but didn’t know the name and when someone asked a question in the group with a screenshot, then I knew and applied it.

Referred to here, vignette ads are full-screen ads that appear between page loads and can be skipped by the user at any time.

Vignette ads are shown when a user leaves the page, not the first time they arrive, so users don’t have to wait for the vignette to load and Google limits the number of vignettes per user to maintain a good user experience.

Here’s how to place a vignette ad on my site :

1. Login to Google Adsense.

2. Click Ads – Summary – Edit (pencil icon at bottom right).

3. Scroll down to Ads settings, enable Vignette ads and click Apply to site.

4. A confirmation will appear for the application to the site, adjust it as needed, click Save.

5. Information about the implementation of the ad will appear, click Close.

The results of my experiment, less than 1-2 minutes after doing the steps above, the ad appears and indeed not all ads will appear when I move to another page, but at least I managed to place the ad. Thank you.

Import Emails from Outlook Express to Ms. Outlook 2003

Import Emails from Outlook Express to Ms. Outlook 2003

Microsoft Outlook Express 6 is a free, basic email program from Windows XP.

In Outlook Express, each mail folder corresponds to a single file (DBX). For example, the Inbox folder in Outlook Express is a single file, Inbox.dbx. Conversely, Ms. Outlook stores each message as an individual file.

Maximum allowed size of DBX files is equal 2 GB and that can cause some serious problems. Point is that the users often use e-mail nowadays to exchange different files with each other. You can import email messages and account information from Outlook Express into Ms. Outlook.

If Outlook Express and Outlook are installed on same computers, you need to know this information so that you can find and copy the correct folder when needed. I started it through Ms. Outlook because it was easier (in this case it was my first time using Ms. Outlook after it was installed).

For other ways can see here :

  1. Click the icon Ms. Outlook 2003, will automatically check if there is an email in Outlook Express, select Upgrade form then click Next.

  1. Fill in the detailed email information obtained from the email provider then Next.

 

 

  1. Select Connect using my local area network (LAN), then Next and Finish.

 

  1. Select Yes and wait until the import process is complete (the import process depends on the number of emails and the specific laptop / PC used).

Good luck, thank you.

 

Disable PHP Mail in Plesk

Disable PHP Mail in Plesk

Several times I get emails from my own domain which is actually not registered, it can also be called a spoof email. Finally I found a solution for this problem, namely by disabling the mail function in the PHP configuration.

Here’s the guide :

Login to Plesk, click Subscriptions – domain name – PHP Settings and scroll down to the Additional configuration directives field, fill it with disable_functions = mail, then click OK.

I also disabled the Sendmail function (applicable in its entirety) :

Login to Plesk, click Tools & Settings – Mail Server Settings – Disable the Allow user and scripts to use Sendmail option and then click OK.

Or if you only want the type of service (Service Plans):

Login to Plesk, click Service Plans – service type name – Mail – Disable the Allow using Sendmail for scripts and users on this subscription option and then click Update & Sync.

Or if you only want the subscription type (Subscription):

Login to Plesk, click Service Plans – Subscriptions – select a domain name – Outgoing Mail Control – Subscription – Change Limit – Disable the Allow using Sendmail for scripts and users on this subscription option and then click OK.

After a few days the email did not appear again. Thank you.
