  1. How to set up a router in my home office when I am traveling.


    I currently work from a home office in NY. Because of the type of work I do, I am technically supposed to be physically in NY when I am working from home.

    I have a second house in NJ that I would like to work from occasionally and would prefer not to use all those IP address spoofing sites. I also cannot really use remote desktop in Windows because I use 4 monitors and it gets choppy. I had the following idea:

    When I am in NJ, can I set my NJ router to talk to the NY (not the computer) and essentially have it pass along information like a middle man? That way all the information still seems as though it is originating from my home office in NY?

    I have an Arris SBG6782 it is makes a difference. I'm not even sure what the term is for what I want to do..."remote router use"? Any help would be much appreciated.

    :)

  2. Laptop stays connected to home network

    This is kind of a silly question, but my computer remains connected to my home network even when I am at my office. I have it set my laptop up to "automatically connect" to my home network. If I completely shutdown my computer, take it to my office, and
    reboot I am still connected to my home network with "limited access." I have to manually disconnect from my home network and reconnect to my work network. This isn't that big of a deal, but my lazy self would like to travel to work and have my laptop automatically
    connect to my workplace network. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I am wrongly set up as a Child in My Family set up - how Can I change to a Parent profile

    Hi Philippe BIAUD,

    It is right that you can’t configure your daughter as a child related to your account, if you have been set up as a Child on your Microsoft account.

    To fix this situation there are various options, depending on how your account have been set up as Child account.

    - Your account is recognized as child account by the system according to the date of birth putted in.

    If this is the case you can try to change your D.O.B. by logging in with your account into the following link:

    account.live.com



    There you can edit your personal information. Please make sure to fill out as much Information as possible, specially your D.O.B., Region and time zone.



    - If your account is set up as the child account of a parent account you have to remove it from that parent account by logging in to the following link with the access information from the parent account:

    Familisafety

    There you will find your child account, if it was set up as child of this parent account. You have to click on the child and select on the top menu “remove family member”.

    If this information does not help you to fix your issue please provide more information on how your account is configured as child account.

    Kind regards,

    Emilio

    How to set up a router in my home office when I am traveling.

    You want a router that offers a VPN server - virtual private network. Any router that offers VPN server should also offer a DDNS server. The way it works is that the router sends your public IP address to an internet server such as no-ip.com. That converts it to a domain name such as L: your_name@no-ip.com. You install the matching VPN client software on your computer which is usually openvpn with the security certificates that you will download from the VPN server on your home router. Then anywhere you have internet that allows VPN pass through - and almost all internet connections do including hotels, libraries, McDonald's WiFi, your NJ home internet, you activate the VPN client and it connects your computer to your router in NY just like it was connected to one of the ports on it or via WiFi.

    An example is Netgear R7000:

    Since your Arris SBG6782 is also your cable modem, you will need to set it in bridge mode, and then connect a router with VPN server behind it:
    Consumers - SBG6782 (v8.4.x): Bridge Mode Setup

    That's the way my setup is, I have a cable modem with built-in Ethernet router and WiFi, but it's set to bridge mode, with my R7000 then connected behind it which provides my WiFi and Ethernet connections and my VPN server that I can connect to remotely.

    I am not sure we should help any more on this as we are actively encouraging a person to violate a company restriction. It sounds to me like this could possibly be sensitive work e.g. defense/military work, and we may be encouraging user to commit a crime?
    @Brink, @essenbe - your thoughts on this?

    Personally I think your reading more into than there really is. I also don't see, anywhere in this thread about, as you say "defense/military work". No govt entity in there right mind will allow a work at home employee. Then again I could be wrong. But, you may be on to something with "company restriction" as the OP states he/she is supposed to be in one place to work and then work somewhere else. Other than that I cant see anything wrong.

    I did say e.g.

    I have never known a company say you must work from a specific Home, but I could see that possibly in commercially or government sensitive work. IMO there is more to this than meets the eye.

  11. Not military or defense work at all. The issue my company is only registered to do business in NY.

    Then you are potentially putting company at commercial risk. You should seek permission first.

    How to set up a router in my home office when I am traveling.

    So. That has zero to do with it's employees when they may be required to be on the road or work while out of town during a family emergency.

    Any hardware VPN solution that is on the lower end Gateways are not going to work for what you want, because they are not really true servers and security appliances. When you set up a VPN between your laptop to the company, it does not matter if you are in a hotel room or a beach house. To the other end, you are on their network, the phone would still go through the VPN it is set up with and appear on the company network.

    The only thing that you cannot do if you are not licensed in that state. You cannot just meet people somewhere or sell the products from residents who live in the state that you happen to be at. You can still work with your clients in your company home state and their lawyers I am sure have already addressed this concern about Road Warriors.

    Going from where you are in Jersey to your place in NY, then to the company. You would not be able to get anything done, because your upload from Jersey to NY would be very limited, unless you are planning on paying for 1000mbps or 100mbps upload and download.

    Anything else, talk to your bosses and IT to see if they have any problems about working at your Jersey location with those accounts in NY. If they try to not be clear, then pick up the phone and call the licensing organization for the state that you received those licenses in and they will pretty much sum up what I stated.

    If you want decent hardware, ditch the Leased eMTA from your provider for Internet, and build a system out like I did with mine. I used to run the Cisco RV320, but took it out of my network when I no longer needed the VPN server access. I use a Engenius EAP1750H and it gives me wired speeds and I can go up to 150 feet away, which at that distance, I start to see 10mbps speeds.
