How To Configure Dynamic NAT: Step-by-Step Tutorial
Static NAT is to manually configure the mapping relationship between internal local address and internal global address on the router, and an internal local address corresponds to an internal global address. After setting, even if the internal local address is not converted, the internal global address is not allowed to be used by other hosts, which wastes address resources to a certain extent, while dynamic NAT technology can solve this problem very well. What is Dynamic NAT? Dynamic translation (also known as NAT pool) means that instead of establishing a fixed one-to-one correspondence between internal and global addresses, NAT mapping...
How to configure RSTP on a switch: Step-by-Step Tutorial
We know that STP can achieve link redundancy, but when the network link state changes, STP will re-elect the root switch, root port, designated port, etc., thus generating a new tree network topology. This election process makes STP convergence time longer (usually 30-50 seconds), and such a long convergence time is not enough for some applications. How to solve this problem? The convergence time can be significantly reduced (down to 1 second) by using an improved Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP). What is RSTP? Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol was first proposed in IEEE 802.1W-2001. This protocol allows for faster convergence...
How To Configure Router RIP: Step-by-Step Tutorial
In network engineering, it is easier to configure small network routes using static routing methods, but if the network is larger and there are frequent link changes, the maintenance workload of the network administrator can be very heavy or even impossible to adapt to the situation. At this point, the dynamic routing protocol configuration method will be more appropriate. Usually routes are divided into static and dynamic routes according to the way they are configured. Static routing refers to the manual configuration of routing tables by the administrator through the command to achieve communication between routers, although the static route...
How To Setup A VLAN Network: Step-by-Step Tutorial
In practice, it is often necessary not only to form a network of computers in one office, but also to connect computers in several different offices separately to form a small office area network, and each office is required to be a separate network segment, and the whole office area is composed of several separate network segments. Then the switch is divided into a VLAN for each office, through the VLAN can not only limit the broadcast packets, but also prevent unnecessary access traffic between different network segments. The small office peer-to-peer network formed earlier is able to achieve the...

The Difference Between Router and Switch
In this article, we’re going to talk about the switch and router, and the difference between router and switch. With the increasing number of desktop computers, notebooks and laptops at home, routers and switches are gradually becoming more widely known by people in order to enable these electronic devices to access the internet together. Since home routers and switches look very similar from the outside, many people don’t know the difference between routers and switches, and what they can do. So we’re going to look at the difference between router and switch in this article. What Is A Switch? A...
How To Fix NAS Network: Step-by-Step Tutorial
In this tutorial, we’re going to look at how to fix NAS network. Synology NAS users occasionally encounter such a situation: they have not used their NAS for a period of time, but find that their Synology NAS cannot connect to the Internet when they come back. As a dedicated data storage server, Synology NAS must store a large number of important files and data. Some users started to get angry at this time. But don’t worry, it’s just a small problem. In this article, I will guide you in detail how to detect the network environment and teach you...
How To Speed Up Synology NAS: Step-by-Step Guide
In this tutorial, we’re going to look at how to speed up Synology NAS. Those who are familiar with NAS products must be familiar with the brand Synology, which has always been the leading brand in NAS industry. It is known for its system optimization and user-friendly experience. In fact, at the hardware level, Synology NAS also has a lot of humanized design. For example, Synology’s main performance models have dual M.2 ssd cache interfaces and multiple network ports, but not many people know about this design and how to use it. Therefore, this article will talk about how to...
How To Setup Static IP Address on Router
In this tutorial, we’re going to look at how to setup static IP address on router. What is static IP address? There are millions of hosts on the Internet, and to distinguish these hosts, network engineers assign each host a special address, which is called an IP address. Each host can be accessed through its IP address. A static IP address is a public IP address that is assigned to a computer for a long period of time and is generally required for professional servers. Nowadays, the resources of static IP addresses are very limited, and if you want to...
