  1. You don't need the boots if you don't want them but everything else looks good.
  2. If you have the tools definitely make the cables as needed I would say buy in bulk and make them as you need.
  3. The cat5e will be perfect unless you want 10Gbit everywhere. Cat5e will also do 2.5Gbit as well
  4. Both of those are rated for outdoor use so you'll have to deal with the grease inside the cables which is going to make things messy but if you wanted to then the VIVO, in this case, seems to be pure copper as well.
  5. Whoops, sorry: https://www.amazon.com/1000ft-Unshielded-Twisted-Ethernet-trueCABLE/dp/B07D53VNKZ/
  6. Cat5e: https://www.amazon.com/1000ft-Unshielded-Twisted-Ethernet-trueCABLE/dp/B07D53VNK Cat6: https://www.amazon.com/1000ft-Unshielded-Twisted-Ethernet-trueCABLE/dp/B01JAVL5OE
  7. It's been known from the start that AIB cards would not use the 12-pin cables so how is this "news"?
  8. It's trying to communicate with us! Edit: We need to spin up a Comms@Home project to decipher it!
  9. That is CCA cable, I would avoid that at EVERY step along the way. CCA cable is brittle as heck and is NOT within spec for any category of cable.
  10. Probably about the same but with the built-in bluetooth/wifi you don't have something in another PCIe slot so I would say it's down to aesthetics more or less.
  11. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/j9m323/gigabyte-gc-wb1733d-i-none-wi-fi-adapter-gc-wb1733d-i This or another variant is what I would recommend.
  12. The speed "difference" would be within margin of error. You would see zero benefit since the router cannot deal with WiFi 6 clients you'll drop back to WiFi 5 on your PC.
  13. Nightbot can be used to ban posting/spamming links and such but I'm not sure how it works on YouTube, only seen it on Twitch.
  14. In that case this guide should do well, it's a couple years old but should still get you moving: https://linuxhint.com/install-openvpn-arch-linux/
  15. I would look at OpenVPN: https://openvpn.net/community-resources/how-to/ If you want a pure Windows guide: https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Easy_Windows_Guide
