  1. I won't say switched because I love building computers but I have definitely used nzxt's service. Sure it is 100-200$ more expensive but when a pc is required for someone who is not that much familiar with tech or even when you just don't want the hassle to individually rma a product if the need be, a pre built is definitely a good choice.
  2. I was rewatching Linus's 10 gig home networking video and I was wondering what is Jake's Home server. Does anyone seem to know and has he ever posted his home setup? I have seen his pc setup in the best pc setup showcase of lmg team members.
  3. I am not sure I get you. Can you elaborate please
  4. # This is not an Ad I was recently upgrading my home networking setup and was planning to install Ubiquiti's Unifi line of products but upon seeing after sales reviews I decided to look for some other ones. One company I never heard of before stood out Canbium a child company of Motorola made networking devices at first i was skeptical but i decided to bite the bullet and go for Canbium's E600 Access Points. The major advantage with Canbium Networks is their 5 year warranty and option to control the whole network without the need to put a controller this was achieved by their cloud controller software CnMaestro this could also be installed on a local machine if you need hundreds of access points or if you really wanted to have the full lineup of products you can buy their controller too. Canbium upon direct comparison has higher throughput, more features than Ubiquiti's offerings and all that while being cheaper the E400 Access Point is cheaper than Ubiquiti's NanoHD while being better and not needing a separate controller to have all the features. Canbium can be more fairly compared to Cisco and Ruckus due to its feature set while being smaller and cheaper. I highly recommend everyone to try Canbium networks for their enterprise and home installations a neat feature which one might not see is one touch provisioning in CnMaestro which allows the Admin to just scan the Serial Number on the box and without opening the package their devices could be setup through CnMaestro allowing for off-site setup and management easier. I have used 2 Canbium E600 comparable price to Ubiquiti's Unify HD access point in my 3000 sqft house with all metal reinforced brick walls and having each access point in the center on each floor covers the full house with a loss of maximum 20% of original speed in worst conditions. And the 4x4 MU-MIMO, power of 30db of both radios in aloowed regions with features like beam forming really tips the deal in favor for Canbium. I highly recommend it.

  6. I have tried to keep the SSIDs and passwords same but they conflict that was the problem I even got a qualified guy to look into it for me and it only resulted in unreliable net. The net just dropped multiple times in a day. Also most of my APs are on different channels some do overlap but they are too far apart you cannot see the ones on the same band on network analyzer. Also having the lowered signal strength and channel width won't help me much because these APs aren't able to punch through my single brick wall anyway and if they do then not without significant signal degradation. Also I am situated near a large field so all the network spectrum is free for my own routers because my neighbors are around 300-400m apart.
  7. Just to verify the same theory I had a qualified person look into it and he too wasn't able to improve my situation
  8. Yes you have the point although my 10 access points currently in my house are not that far apart channel wise they work pretty nicely but are unable to penetrate my walls that too was a non issue if I had the seemless switching between APs which I don't with any solution I tried so I was planning to get ubiquiti which offers a controller and integrates the whole network allowing for the seemless transition. But the question is, if it is actually good or just a marketing thing because the switching i have seen it is as they say but the APs they sell like the Nano HDs are two of them powerful enough to suffice or I would need a bigger AP like the XG basestation or going all out with a Cisco radio style APs and huge control equipment
  9. I can try that what are the chances of it actually working because I have been working like this for about 2-3 years and m super irritated it not working and finally made my mind to do something about it. Also what would be a good router to upgrade to? I am currently using https://www.tp-link.com/in/home-networking/wifi-router/archer-a7/ As my router didn't find a dedicated router for non enterprise hardware.
  10. I have tried to do that before I have also watched many vids and even got a qualified networking guy to do it but the APs just conflict and my whole network just goes down
  11. Would Nano HDs suffice or a more powerful AP is required. Because range wont be a prob with Nano HDs but the power is what i am doubtful about ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  12. True DLinks are pretty bad but i can't really do anything if that is them only modem better than the previous one i can use. I even offered to pay for a special fibre line so i get more speed as well as a better modem but no amount of money got them to help me
  13. They are all wired in and trying to keep them on the same SSID and password conflicts with the router, and my modem just goes down. I have watched many YouTube tutorials on how to have them to seamlessly transition and all of them end up either not working or me having an unreliable net. I suspected that the ISP provided modem router switch combo might be the issue and paid to get a better D-Link one but that too did't resolve my problem.
  14. I have seen pimp my WiFi series but this video is very old and the new one is not in a concrete house. And the steel reinforcements wont be comparable. Hence the second opinion
  15. I have a 1500-2000 sq ft house of full concrete and metal reinforcements in 90% of my walls. Currently my WiFi solution is one access point router combo in every room and i still struggle to get optimal WiFi coverage in all rooms with me having to switch WiFi manually to different SSIDs every time i go from one room to another.... My house is wired with all Cat 6a wiring with a 16 port gigabit switch i get about 2-5 ms local ping with 40 Mbps down and 8 Mbps up when i have full coverage. Else the WiFi signal just drops out. I was planning to upgrade to a totally over the top overkill WiFi solution to circumvent the issue of 10-12 access points in house and just replace them with 3 Unifi Nano HDs(One for each floor) with a 8 port POE switch from ubiquity and cloud key gen 1(Gen 2 is basically the same but with built in battery to prevent it from getting corrupted from power-loss). I want to upgrade to Ubiquiti for range and not really the amount of clients it can handle and that i wont have to manually switch between access points. Will this solution suffice of i will have to get a more overkill setup by cisco or something?? My Current Router/AP in all my Rooms. https://www.tp-link.com/us/home-networking/wifi-router/archer-c7/
  16. I Uninstalled it using add or remove and then went into every directory where there was trace of the launcher and then did a fresh install
  17. No they won't connect to it only very rarely someone will have to connect to it otherwise no.
  18. I deleted my epic games launcher a few months ago just because i got bored of it lately i was wanting to play some subnautica so i decided to reinstall and since then i have been trying my best to fix it but to no avail....Please help..Task manager shows 0% usage and it is stuck .
  19. No automatic compression is needed. The only job I need it to do is backup and sync files basically a file nas and 1-2 windows vm to run a single accounting software 24/7.
  20. I required a small Nas a dual bay one will be more than enough for the application I was thinking to get a synology DS218+ but are there are other similar suggestions for a good nas. I need to run 1-2 vms tops and need it for centralized file syncing and backup.
  21. I need a decently priced 500$ max 1440p 144hz or higher gaming display of some reputable brand not any Chinese monitors any suggestions. Rocking a 1080ti if anyone curious about the gfx.
