  1. Looks like a stripped Phillips screw. According to Dell's service manual (props to dell for having a publicly available manual for this), they don't appear to use any security screws. You may have to look up some stripped screw removal methods. https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/uk/en/ukbsdt1/inspiron-15-5567-laptop/inspiron-15-5567-servicemanual/screw-list?guid=guid-816a7381-2933-4438-a177-e6688dbb9e7b&lang=en-us
  2. Have you checked the firewall rule on the router? It may still be blocking the port even if it's set to forward. As the port is the same internally and externally, I'd leave the internal port blank. Also, I assume something is actually running that will respond to the forwarded packet? If nothing is running, the port will often be returned as closed.
  3. VPN is really the best way. If you had a computer running 24/7, absolutely do not open up ports to allow RDP to it. If you're doing that, set up a VPN and actually have a secure connection rather than opening commonly attacked ports with insecure connections. There are other ways to do it, such as having a server that runs a virtual desktop provider like Citrix and have it accessible from the outside of the network, but unless you already have a way of doing it (which you don't), a VPN should be what you go for to minimise the impact on security.
  4. It will just go over the router the two are connected to, it won't go to the modem/router. Local traffic mostly goes over Layer 2 communication, which uses MAC/Physical addresses, not IP addresses. As the router (or really, the switch part of the router) knows where the devices are located by their MAC address, there's no reason to forward anything to the gateway (your modem/router).
  5. Viable in that it would work, yes. You won't get much, if any benefit from RAID 0 for games though.
  6. PCPartPicker > Filter by price High to Low. You just get all the weird stupid Amazon prices for products that aren't actually in stock.
  7. If it's set to UEFI/GPT only, you can also try setting it to UEFI and Legacy/MBR to see if it will allow you to boot then.
  8. Check BIOS settings for an option to enable UEFI/GPT boot devices. You can also look into the boot order and see if you need to enable it first. I had that issue with one of my builds where I had to disable other drives in the boot order before the OS drive became available.
  9. Yep. For the most part, you just need to plug the router in and set it up as a pass-through to the router. In my case, the modem works fine on factory settings and all the configuration for the connection is handled through the router. Modem stands for modulator-demodulator. It does more than just convert the cable. Ethernet networks transmit data in a digital format, while telephone lines, which are still used in VDSL connections, even in FTTC situations (where fibre cables run between the exchange and the cabinet, but then the older copper phone lines carry the signal to the property) use analogue wave formats. The modem performs the role of converting between the two. It's a pretty "dumb" device and in most situations, doesn't really do anything other than convert the signal and pass it on. Full fibre connections use fibre cables all the way to the premises, so the signal is digital the entire way. As such, there are no modems in a full fibre connection as the signal doesn't need to be converted. That said, often there is some form of media conversion (often in the forms of a GPON terminal) as it comes into the property, where it will change from fibre optic to the more typical copper forms of ethernet (there are fibre optic standards that support Ethernet such as the likes of SFP, but it's not your typical consumer setup). From the media converter, which is installed along with the fibre lines, it can go right into an Ethernet router. This is a pretty good video showcasing how FTTP connections come into the property and the equipment involved. Unfortunately, FTTP isn't available where I am, so I haven't been able to get any hands-on experience with it yet
  10. What you had originally is most likely a VDSL Modem and Router in one unit (among other devices). Either you need to get a modem or you need to get a modem/router combo unit. You have options like the Huawei HG612 which is/was standard from BT. Not sure where you saw that they have no web interface or settings, because they do. I use a Huawei HG612 and can manage it from a web interface. That said, there's really not a whole lot to configure. Most connections will work out of the box, but if your ISP requires specific VLAN tags or similar, it can be setup through the Web interface. In terms of connecting, most of the time you'll have the modem just convert the signal and pass it through to the WAN port on the router. The router is then responsible for establishing the connection to the ISP. Seeing as you have a username and password from the ISP, you most likely are on a PPPoE connection, so you'd need to set the router up for that.
  11. Your ISP may block certain ports, even if you've forwarded it and added exceptions to the firewall. Port 22 is a pretty common one for this to happen with. Does the DDNS address resolve to your router's public IP okay?
  12. One's for Windows 10 64 Bit and one is every version, including Linux by the looks of things.
  13. Leadex II Gold has a 7 year warranty, not 5 years from what I can find. The Leadex series are very good and some of the only good or different looking PSUs out there, so personally I'd probably choose that. If you have a case with a PSU shroud included though, that really doesn't matter so you'd be better off with the RMx for the warranty and 0RPM Fan mode.
