    Basic Cisco Phone Setup

    What I'm wondering if is if I can connect the VoIP phones directly to the ATA without using a PBX? (Analog phone line -> ATA -> VoIP phones) If I can connect it this way, is there a limit on the amount of VoIP phones I can connect before needing a PBX? Or I MUST connect the phones through a PBX or they cannot call in/call out through the ATA? Analog phone line -> ATA -> PBX -> VoIP phones

    Basic Cisco Phone Setup

    Does anyone have experience with the SPA122 in this kind of configuration? Does it work this way, because... ^ from Cisco.com It seems it allows analog phones to connect to a VoIP service provider What I want is to connect VoIP phones to an analog provider

    Basic Cisco Phone Setup

    So I can connect the SPA-3102 to my normal landline via the RJ11 port on my wall, and I can connect the SPA-3102 to my internet router? Then I would be able to use any Cisco IP phone by just connecting them to my LAN and configuring them to the SPA-3102? Sweet! Is there an updated model for this? Linksys doesn't seem to manufacture this model anymore
  4. Hi, is it possible to configure Cisco phones simply to just use the PSTN? (without buying an VOIP number, etc.) Like can I buy something that allows me to connect a Cisco phone to an RJ11 port from my landline telephone service provider and use it like any other home phone off the market?

    SATA drives not showing up in Windows 10

    I know that if you buy a new, non-formatted drive, you would have to format it in Disk Management, but my drive it's neither showing up in Disk Management nor Device Manager. I've tried with new HDDs and old HDDs but my Windows 10 install doesn't seem to see them, only my Windows 7 install does.

    SATA drives not showing up in Windows 10

    If I turn hotplugging off, it doesn't show up in Windows 10 anymore, but it works soooooooo, thanks!

    WD Blue vs WD Purple

    I'm planning to buy a 6TB drive for desktop usage, WD Blue and WD Purple are going for the same price here. Should I get the WD Purple? It seems to be the better one of the two as it is rated for 24 x 7 operation and seems to have faster write speeds. Is there any downside if I take the WD Purple over the WD Blue? Thanks

    2.5" vs 3.5" USB drives

    I need 4 2TB drives that will be plugged in via USB, is it advisable to get 2.5" 2TB portable drives so I can use them without an external power source or will that put a lot of load on the PC if I plug in all 4 drives via USB at the same time? Should I get 3.5" 2TB drives instead with a external power adapter?

    SATA drives not showing up in Windows 10

    That actually worked, even though it isn't hotplugging, somehow that setting makes the drive show up it Windows 10. Weird that it shows up in Windows 7 even if it's turned off on the same motherboard. Thanks dude!
  12. Hi, I have a drive running Windows 10 Pro. When I add an additional drive, it shows up in the BIOS but not in Windows, file explorer shows nothing, device manager shows nothing, disk management shows nothing. The additional drive has no problems because when I plug it into a USB SATA enclosure, it detects perfectly fine in Windows 10 as (D:). The SATA ports on the motherboard has no problems, because when I boot into a drive running Windows 7 Professional, any drive I plug in shows up in Windows. It seems to be a problem only in Windows 10 Pro. Any ideas what is going on with Windows 10? drives detect fine in Windows 7... Tried installing all drivers from motherboard website. (H87M-D3H) Tried using different SATA cables. Tried using different SATA drives.
  13. But when you are a network engineer, don't you have like specialized tools for these kinds of things? Like a laptop or like a stand alone wifi scanner or something? Sorry, I'm not familiar yet with what they do in the industry
  14. The i3 processor is better, how so? https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-4300U-vs-Intel-Core-i3-6006U/m4996vsm214467 The i5 seems to top the i3 in everything except in being newer and having a larger market share, I think I might be missing something here, it would really help if you could explain into deeper detail, thanks in advance and for your reply.
