  1. Bridge mode is used if you dont want your router doing any routing. You would most likely use it if you had your own router after the ISP router. Unless you have another router you want to use there is no reason to switch your router into bridge mode
  2. Ye... Their track record over the last 2-3 years haven't been the greatest, and I will give you that apple putting LM on their CPU's would make me a bit nervous. My argument was never that they would not f*** it up, more that they would be legally responsable, if the computer shorted or if LM came into contact with the aluminium chassis.
  3. I think we might have misunderstood each other. What i am saying is that if apple were to release a macbook with LM i would assume that they had tested it and found it to be safe. I would expect that if they charge 4k for a laptop with LM that it wouldn't fail because of the LM in a vast majority of cases. It can also be added that many people(I know a few) have put LM into their macbooks without any major problems as the cooling isn't made from aluminium
  4. I mean that if apple were to sell their laptops with LM, it would be on them to ensure that nothing would go wrong. Plus, I also think that if apple were to sell their laptops with LM that they would make sure that it couldn’t get in contact with anything it shouldn’t
  5. One would assume that they put down a coating around the die(s) and then use a machine to apply the liquid metal. The interesting thing here is how it performs, and if there are any medium-long term issues. Aren't you supposed to change the LM every 6-9 months?
  6. I think thats what i am gonna do tbh, might try out pfsense with a VM or an old computer if i can find one lying around. Plus as far as i can see i would be able to put a pFsense in front of the USG at some point if i wanted to. Thanks for the great info guys
  7. @scottyseng Thanks again! I also learned that i can get the controller software to run on my nas so i don't need to invest in a cloud key which is neat. It sucks about the vpn performance though, might have to look to pFsense if i want to do that. @Alex Atkin UK Thanks for answering! I will admit that the idea of learning more about networking through pFsense is interesting. I am just a bit nervous about how much of a time investment i would need to make. How difficult would you say that setting up a pFsense router is for someone with limited freenas and linux experience? also: As much as i would love to invest in such a box as the one you recommended i would like to find something that's 250$ or less if possible. Do you have any recommendations? Do you have somewhere where they have a beginner tutorial(video or text) where i can get an overview of what i will need to know to do a basic setup? If possible i want to minimize downtime as i am not the only one using the internet in my apartment
  8. @scottyseng @Dujith Thanks for the great detailed answers, you guys are awesome! I am currently studying computer science, so a CLI is not something, that i am terrified of, but i would like to have a stable wifi. The idea of tinkering and learning more about networking is quite tempting, so a setup which allows for this in the future would be great. So far i think i will keep to a full unifi setup as it seems like the easiest for a beginner, and the more stable solution. If you don't mind i have a few follow up questions: @scottyseng you mentioned: It may be a dumb question, but what do they do exactly? and is it something that a person with limited networking experience should tinker with?' Will a Unifi setup be able to handle my 250/250 and potentially 1000/1000(I might get lucky and be able to upgrade very cheaply) connection without being a bottleneck? Is there any reason to go with this vs the pro? I can see that the nano is more expensive where i live Is there any advantage to going with the official hardware as opposed to building one yourself / getting a mini computer(with support for AES ofc)? How complicated would you guys say that pFsense is? I already have some experience with linux(Just installed arch after having used ubuntu, though i am by no means an expert). Would a Unifi setup allow me to do whole network VPN?
  9. Hey LTT Forum I have been planning to upgrade my home network from an old asus router to a ubiquiti unifi setup as i have heard that they are quite good and reliable. To give a bit of context, i have a 250/250 fiber connection and i live in a 70m2 apartment with approximately 15-25 devices that might be connected at a given time. So far i have been looking at the following setup: 1x Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway 1x switch (Don't know if i should go with a generic one or go with a unifi switch) 1x Ubiquiti Unifi AP AC Lite And my questions are: Is it better to go with a full Unifi setup or to go with a Edge router X SFP and a AP AC Lite. I have seen quite a few recommending the edge+AC over a full Unifi setup without stating why. Are there any major advantages to going with a full Unifi setup, besides the interface? How big of a difference is there between a lite and pro access point? Would it be better to just buy a ubiquiti access point and build a small pFsense machine? If i should go with a pFsense router is there a small machine which would be reccomended?
  10. Thanks for the reply Then i only need to test that my memory works with the motherboard and i am all good
  11. His specs are a undervolted 6700k (1.09 V, or something like that although i am not quite sure how low he got it) with a Noctua-l9i and he never reaches higher than 67-70 C while pretty much silent, and he uses a mini 1060(with LM, and shroud removed) which never gets above 70 C. I have a few pictures of it if it would be something you want to see
  12. I guess this does not mean anything since its a m-ITX build unless its 4 less PCI-E for the m.2 (960 evo) SSD i am gonan use. Would you happend to know this? Gonna look at the article now, Thanks for linking it
