  1. So I set static IPs, disabled DHCP, setup opnsense as the DHCP server and wireless connection went down. What I am thinking is that I need to set the modem to bridge mode to keep the modem from screwing everything up haha. I will see what happens tonight after the family goes to sleep. Side note: Waiting until late night when everyone is asleep makes this feel like I'm a mad scientist creating a monster. Makes it feel even more fun.
  2. It looks like I can enable bridge mode on mine. I will try to configure as recommended when I get home tonight. Thank you for the input. Hopefully I can get this to work because I need to do it for a university research project.
  3. I am trying to run my traffic through a firewall before going to my network. I don't have the money right now to buy my own modem or wireless router, so I am stuck making this work with the ISP modem/router combo. I want to have traffic go from the modem in the modem/router combo, then go to the firewall (separate box), then back to the modem/router combo to use it's wifi for the house. The firewall is an opnsense vm. Is this even possible?
  4. @CancelShredWasted Checked my network settings and disabled my other wired connections. I have a dual port NIC native in my motherboard (one Gigabit, one not). I disabled the non-Gigabit network and a Hyper-V virtual network I set up for a virtual machine. I must have forgotten to disable it last time I ran the VM. Connection is currently holding steady. Will continue to test and report back tomorrow evening. @ItsTheDuckAgain I have not checked any of those things yet. Spent the last hour rechecking line connections for corrosion/debris/wear/damage/secure fit, ensuring the modem has proper ventilation(already did but gave it more), and checking all power settings & network drivers. I will check all of the logs tomorrow.
  5. Recently started having an issue with my home internet connection. Internet begins to disconnect then reconnect over and over intermittently. When I turn on my PC it will be fine, sometimes I will go hours without an issue or not have an issue at all. Sometimes it lasts only a few minutes and sometimes it continues all night. I have noticed a correlation with the problem starting while I am online gaming. I have tried resetting the modem, switching the cable to a different port on the modem, checked all connections from wall to modem to PC. I have been using the same equipment with no issue, have not recently installed any new network drivers, last windows update was 2 weeks ago well before the issue started. ISP doesn't have reported outages or line maintenance. Have not noticed any issues with the home wifi, only on wired. This is the only device in the house with wired connection.
  6. I definitely want everything to communicate. Otherwise it would be silly to have a NAS for the whole house. I can do a switch, I was actually looking for an excuse to use a switch just because I've always wanted to. I am wanting to use pfsense for firewall, proxy, snort, content filtering and network monitoring. I want to really beef up my network security.
  7. Mesh is my ideal situation but I have heard it is expensive. I will research that more. I am currently only running one wired device (my main pc). Everything else is wireless: 3 smartphones, Xbox, 2 tablets, 1 laptop. Expecting one more pc to be wired in the near future.
  8. So it would be a better idea to just us a multiport Ethernet nic and run wire to wireless access points? The pcie wireless isn't a must, I was just trying to minimize how much wire I have to run for access points. I can alternatively use hardline adapters if i have to. I am in a newer home with good wiring (have tested connection with hardline adapters) so I'm not worried about signal quality or noise.
  9. I have plans to run a standalone machine using a used workstation running pfsense in a virtual desktop for a router, 8TB personal home NAS, and small scale gaming server for small group of friends. I plan to run a gigabit docsis 3.0 (isp doesn't support 3.1 ...) modem, and a wireless access point for the second floor of the house. I have found a gigabit pcie wireless card, but I'm not really that familiar with networking. My question is... Can I use a pcie wireless card installed in a machine to broadcast a wifi signal to other devices? If yes, how would I go about doing it? I am already aware that running a standalone machine 24/7 will raise my electricity bill. That's why I'm trying to get as much functionality out of this as I can.
  10. My research has yielded the same. I have been trying to dig deeper to make sure that there aren't any other obvious causes for the throttling that so many people have been reporting. I did read something about the FTW having bad throttling issues that had to be fixed with a modded BIOS. http://forums.evga.com/Modded-BIOS-to-fix-970-FTW-severe-throttling-issues-w-link-m2247507.aspx The need for modded BIOS to fix the problem doesn't exactly make me confident that using an aftermarket cooler will do the trick. I do however recognize that the throttling could be caused by the misaligned VRM like you said. If that is making it to where it doesn't cool properly then that would definitely make it throttle prematurely just because it is reaching higher temps at lighter loads. This card is going to be an enormous upgrade for me either way since I will be moving to it from my 6 year old GTX 260, but I still want to make sure that my money is going to a quality product.
  11. My main issue is that I've heard that there a bunch of problems with the FTW. Are there any notable problems other than the ones that will be fixed when replacing the cooler?
  12. Necrodead is right. It would be great if the block would fit but it isn't compatitble. I'm not sure on the details of how the pcb is different but from what I have read it is enough that the block won't fit.
  13. I am building a new rig and have narrowed my gpu down to either the FTW or FTW+. Normally it would be a no brainer with the FTW+ pulling ahead, but I want to put the gpu into my watercooling loop. From the research I have done there are no plans to make a full coverage water block that will be compatitble with the FTW+. The FTW however already has a very nice full cover water block w/ matching backplate from EK. The only thing keeping me on the fence about this is that I keep hearing that the FTW is plagued with all sorts of problems. So I am wondering if I should go ahead and get the FTW or get the FTW+ with no watercooling. Keep in mind that it isn't a huge deal if I can't put it in the loop, I just prefer to if I can. Also, I am not really that worried about the power limit on the FTW vs the FTW+. The extra headroom would be nice but it isn't a deal breaker for me.
