    My internet speed is 150 MBPS but I'm getting only 100 MBPS

    any other devices connected? temp disable your wifi, and only have your test computer connected. get that a fair bit myself, complain they cant get there full speed, find out they have over 30 devices connected and some are taking up all the bandwidth. Also make sure you have a proper ethernet cable using all 8 conductors in use.

    Questions before I wire my house

    as far as switches it depends. Cheap ones are just cheap. for the most part general home use shouldn't matter I work for an isp and we like home runs to the basement/dmark to install equipment. have ran into issues were they do a run from the fiber ONT to a location. That run goes bad for some reason now every other wiring in the house wont work unless that gets replaced. My house for example has over 20 cat6 runs all to 1 location. No one sees it unless I am in the furnace room. I also don't want this behind my tv and gives me lots of options to hard wire and install wireless AP if needed. We are getting to the days with many devices on wifi, slowing down wifi when you could hard wire more devices. Plus speeds are only geting faster. Wifi won't be able to keep up. My NAS is also in that room, it is big and noise and another advantage having it in the furnace room. I recommend this, 2 runs to each room. ISP has tv services, QOS control is best having the tv on one line and internet on another. Main tv locations I ran 6, smart tv (wall mount, 1 line goes to it), xbox one, android box, PS4, Home theater receiver is 4 right there. Yes I could install a switch behind the TV but it is already a mess back there. what is your budget like? co-worker ran a bunch of lines in his 70's house. Back then there was no such thing as internet. He installed all unifi equipment and installed 2 AP upstairs, 2 downstairs and 1 in his garage. House AP are in closets using POE switch.

    Ethernet cable advice

    if you run it outside you will need an outdoor rated cable. Myself included have run into issues with long cables ran from point a to b and just due to people walking on it, moving it around and so on has caused issues with the cable. If possible running a few lines from were you need it now to a location in your house will prevent future issues, install this in the wall with keystone jacks. Depending on the situation it is going to take some work but worth it in the end My house never had these, did some renos and installed jacks everywhere. Now everything that can is hardwired and also have a few AP around the house to handle wifi. Also 10gb future proof when the time comes. comes right back to a central location were my networking equipment is, including my nas, UPS, and other equipment is.

    Upgrading WiFi in Apartment in Canada

    is this for your TV and other devices? Can your phone work just fine on the 5ghz freq were your tv is? I haven't looked into it for some time but there were devices called media bridges. you set it up to connect to your existing network, this then provides a ethernet port or more depending on the model. This will give you a ethernet port for your tv and possibly anything else you need. there are ethernet over powerline options, might work as you are in an apartment.

    Ethernet cable advice

    home environment with future proofing you should look at cat6a. Last I herd cat7 isn't actually a standard is this going to be in a wall? surface mounted?
  6. I have a couple csv files that I would like to sort, remove duplicates, split and add as more data is generated example data data data 1 data data data data 2 data data data data 5 data data data data 10000 data I know I can combine these and do what I want manually but my understanding is it combines into 1 large file then splits is there a way to split the files now, run a command and add more data in later? example 1-500.csv data data data 1 data data data data 2 data future input future input data data data 5 data future after this 501-1000.csv nothing would be here yet until some data is generated were column 4 would have some # between 501-1000 1001-1500.csv and so on.everything is empty 9501-10000 only 1 line and would be the last one data data data 10000 data I get some new.csv files and in it is data data data 345 data, program would see this and add it to the 1-500.csv only data data data 5 data, program sees this is already in the 1-500.csv and deletes the line. the data could have potentially billions of lines and don't want to combine everything, sort, remove, split as new data needs to get entered. time consuming, potentially massive file.

    can linux do this by default

    got a few months to figure this out, while not a linux noob not experience enough for scripts and this R you are talking about
  8. depending on the setup it might just be a "dummy modem" just pass through everything. customer will get there own equipment after that. I know my isp has that option on both there DSL to a certain speed and fiber working some "unsupported" setup. unsupported is they will not come support anything if you use your own equipment and only responsible up to the ONT. contact your isp and ask how you are setup. if it is truly just a dummy modem then a router is all you need.

    CL Technician's theory for why my internet doesn't work

    as someone who works with dsl line quality is key. To far away, to many taps, inside line issues. corrosion on line. This list can go on.

    chances it is the cable?

    I have an issue with my norco 4224 case and detecting 1 drive I thought it might have been the backplane. moved from the bottom that had the issue to the top and didn't fix it moved from 1 raid card to another raid card and also didn't fix it took the drive out and connected it to my windows machine. found it no problem connected it to the server sata port and power works. I did notice when I removed it from my unraid machine it was not spinning. yet powered up on both the windows and server sata port it is a shucked 6tb white drive. there are 3 others in the server that work just fine. Each back plane is feed from a 4 pin molex. I have a new cable from raid card to backplane on order. will need some for my 2nd nas build in the future
  11. just wondering, a typical NIC in a laptop/pc, can one set it to vlan 1000 or 3000? my isp fiber uses that for internet

    paid for 50mbps, speedtest says 30mbps

    not exactly, my isp offers 5,10 and 25. Always get the speed or slightly more how are testing the speed? to do a true speed test only 1 device and a hardwired connection

    1.0Gbps full duplex doesn't work

    is your computer off when you get the 100mbps? I know some equipment defaults to 100mbps according to the router if it is on check your cable, all 4 pairs need to be in use

    Canada 10gb wire and jacks

    should have said looking for bulk cable. Future proofing my house and in the near future will be transferring large amounts of files from one portable setup to another.

    Ac3100 router with Verizon FiOS issue

    can you log into the router? if that ethernet is active you should get an ip you can see on the main page. Also some have an indicator light that says connected to internet. Got feeling you are not connecting up the right cable

    Ac3100 router with Verizon FiOS issue

    is there a wan port on the asus? this is comming from the fios equipment. Maybe you need to set the vlan on the asus router. My fiber isp you need to do this

    Ac3100 router with Verizon FiOS issue

    you own the asus router? isn't fios cable internet? is the coax connected to the asus?
  22. I have a iptv service from my isp. It works provincce wide but there are some restrictions as it needs to come from my home location. Could I use some sort of VPN setup to trick the box into thinking it is located from home?

    Fiber internet Sfp and not wanting to use isp hw

    I have been looking at telus allowing nokia gpon sfp adapters to work the issue is this, isp mine at least does not want the customer to mess with the fiber itself. fragile and costly to fix. I know of cases were customers cut the fiber right at the wall. isp goes to hook up the customer again or a new one and has to fish in a new line. Sometimes not as nice as before Customer expects it to be just like the old copper, can't you just spice with the 1/2 inch of fiber left? I would love to skip the ont/power supply as I just have internet and nothing else. Then there is the issue with dial tone on fiber. Battery backup in case power goes out.
