  1. Thanks for the information! Much Appreciated
  2. Hello, I have a PC with 2 networks (LAN & Broadband) both through separate network cards. on this machine I have a VM running. At the moment when VMware is set to bridged network connection I can get onto my lan network but not broadband. I have tried adding another bridged connection but I’m not sure exactly how to set why adaptor to do what? can anyone help in the configuration of this so i can see both networks on both machines? thanks
  3. ISP router In modem mode into first switch
  4. Thanks for info, wasnt sure on VLANS but i hooked it all up and it works no issues so far.
  5. Hi, Im wondering if it’s possible to have my wan and lan on the same Ethernet cable. For example WAN >>> Switch>>>> Switch >>>>RouterWAN then the LAN of the router back to the switch along the same cable the wan came anlong and back into the switch the wan goes to and out to devices? Thanks
  6. Hey , Just had cable broadband installed and now getting 200Mbps will moving to 350Mbps in a few months. It’s a Virgin Media Superhub 3.0 I have been given and most of my devices are Ethernet but the WiFi isn’t great from it. On wired I’m getting 220Mbps but WiFi can drop to 40-50 when in other rooms. The signal strength drops away over not too far. I’m just trying to decide if I should be getting an access point and put away from my hub upstairs or just get a whole new router. As the virgin hub can be put in modem mode. If i name and password the access point and hub the same will my devices swap over easily? any advice appreciated
  7. Yea, I know it wouldn't effect the Ethernet stuff. Anything that will use my NAS is on the Ethernet network. Yea I suppose just wasting money. Virgin Hub will likely suffice for the Phones ect. Everything Ethernet goes directly back to a 24Port Gigabit Linksys Switch so in that sense im sure ethernet is solid.
  8. Hi All, I am switching to a new cable provider (Virgin Media) and i am going to be getting speeds around 300Mpbs. I was looking to get a new router as the virgin hub can be put in modem mode. Just really for the benefit of better WiFi coverage and a few more features. I have a NAS, most of my home devices are on Ethernet. The only WiFi devices are 4 iPhones, iPad & Amazon Alexa. None of which are really battering the WiFi at the same time. I have another 14 Ethernet devices I have been toying with the Netgear X6S which is tri-band 4000Mbps. I like this over the X6 as i may be interested in the Dual Gigabit Port Aggregation. I can get it for £167.38 Its quite big and not best looking but i prefer the look of the Nighthawk X4S but this is only dual band 2600Mbps and costs only £129.99 at the moment. Im just trying to decided if i would benefit getting the X6S's Extra band and port aggregation or it not really required as im mostly Ethernet? Thanks.
  9. Okay, Thanks, Might just try run another cat 5 for the WAN from the modem to router in the loft. POE I may be interested in to easily add more CCTV Camera. 10Gbe would have been cool but done all my cabling in CAT5E. Don't see me requiring that yet though.
  10. Thanks for the prompt reply. So if this was to work as is, I would need a managed switch?
  11. Hello, I like to tinker and have been toying with the idea of a custom router for my home network. I am getting virgin media installed soon so will be getting around 350Mbps. The way the install will have to be my incoming internet location will have to move, but I was wondering if it would be possible to use the same cable that is providing the WAN to the pfsense router to then provide the LAN connection to another device. Please look at below diagram and it may explain better what I mean. I am looking to have the router on the HP Server or on another machine directly into the switch. (Or directly from Modem) This is my Current Network. This would be my new setup... Can an issue be foreseen using the Virgin Hub switch to send the wan up the come back down to the TV on the LAN? Perhaps would I be better to go directly from Modem to pfsesne router. I would like to run a new ethernet cable but I think conduit space is too tight now as I have 2 ethernets and coax in it. I hope this makes sense please ask any questions for clarity. My networking knowledge is minimal and I am not yet fully clued up on Pf Sense. Thanks
  12. Just for anyone that comes across this..... It worked fine.
  13. Hey, I have a 2019 iMac with the i5 9600K 3.7Ghz and was looking to upgrade the memory, I see this kit https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01BMMVNL4/ref=twister_B01MYRSA1M?th=1 It meets the specs of apple and is the same as the crucial compatible stuff but the product don't mention 9th Gen CPU's just wondering if there would be any foreseeable issues? Cheers
  14. Yea, I agree. Its £90 for the 512GB over the 2TB fusion. The 1TB SSD is a further £360. So probably not really worth it as he won't have any large projects on go at one time. Everything will be Archived to the NAS. Agreed, Id prefer the SSD. I wasn't sure how big the fusion cash is but that's not very big at all. The completed projects and everything will be sorted on the NAS when completed
  15. Hi All, My dad got himself a DJI Osmo Pocket to make cycling videos, and family videos etc. Now he has been looking at a 2019 iMac to use for this. This will mostly be used for normal web browsing and some light-medium Adobe Premiere (4K but Smaller Projects), Lightroom & Photoshop. We are set on getting the 27" 5K Model with the 3.7GHz 6-core 9th-gen i5 (Probably not worth the i9 for his use case). It comes with 8GB ram but I will be adding another 16GB to this right away as its much cheaper than adding the 16GB from Apple. The only thing that we are struggling to decide on is storage. I have a Synology NAS that I archive all my projects, media etc too. He would be able to do the same so I'm thinking the 512GB SSD would be enough for what he would be doing. But he seems to be sliding towards the idea of the larger storage (future Proof), Either the 2/3TB Fusion drive or maybe even the 1TB SSD but I really don't think he will require that much fast storage if he is bulk storing on the NAS. I would prefer the performance of the SSD for Premiere media. Not really sure how the fusion drive stacks up. Only other thing I don't suppose it would be worth upgrading from the Radeon Pro 580X 8GB to the Radeon Pro Vega 48 8GB. He won't be gaming at all just the Adobe Suite as mentioned above. Any suggestions or ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks
