  1. Nope, just the crap the ISP gives you
  2. If that was internet speed 300 MB/s (bytes)...that would be pretty badass
  3. Broadcasts will go to all 4 switches (assuming just one VLAN). Not sure why 4 switches and not just 1.
  4. Switch 1 port 1 > switch 4 port 4 In your diagram traffic go through the "router's SWITCH (remember a consumer grade router is a router, SWITCH, and access point in 1 unit) and back out to switch 4 port 4. It DOES NOT go through the router's portion of the "router". Layer 2 of the OSI Model Switch 2 port 1 > switch 2 port 2 Traffic will NOT leave switch 2 (Unless host 1 and 2 are in different VLANs) Switch 1 port 1 > Internet / different VLAN will go though the router. Router's main purpose is joining 2 different networks together How about Server/ NAS > PC > one of the 4 switches....PC is connected to both server/NAS with a high speed link as well as to one of the 4 switches Hope this helps, if you need a more in depth explanation (or simpler) PM me or respond here and I will see what I can do
  5. If there are no traces on that tab (there shouldn't be any) Its fine to cut it off. I have "modified" plenty of cards before, just be careful.
  6. MBps is 8x FASTER than Mbps. ISPs measure speed in Mbps
  7. You seem to be limited by the number of Ethernet ports on your modem /"router". Adding a switch would give you more Ethernet ports for wired devices. It also may be a good idea to add an access point to help with the WiFi dead zones. Are you currently using a wifi extender or a powerline + extender combo unit? Internet > Modem/"Router" > switch >all wired devices + maybe an access point.
  8. CAT6 can do 1Gbps at 100 meters, or 55 meters at 10G. Cat6 is still the most common cable installed today.
  9. Did you find drivers for the Mellanox NICs for windows? I did the same sort of thing between my server (BSD) and two PCs. First thing I would check (going off memory about 4 years ago) the IP addresses / Subnet Mask for both PCs. What OS is your NAS running?
  10. Miners don't use much bandwidth. "router" (with internet in the wan port) >Ethernet cable > any port on switch > ant miners. You do not need a specific "router" TP-link, Netgear, Asus, Linksys all make good consumer grade stuff
  11. https://www.amazon.com/Indoor-Outdoor-Duplex-Multimode-Options/dp/B01I2EHJOU/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1534589588&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=om1%2Bfiber%2Boutdoor%2Blc-lc&th= Outdoor rated is pretty expensive OM1 (orange ) max length at 1gbps 275m If you want 10g use OM3 Your switch on both ends of the link will need sfp+ transceivers Let me know what switches (or PC) you have and I can spec sfp+ transceivers Hope this helps!
  12. I believe the response above is not a powerline adapter, just a range extender. Here is one with powerline and WiFi, as well as a switch. Tp-Link has been great in my experience for consumer grade. https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-AC750-Powerline-Gigabit-Wi-Fi/dp/B01CVOM140/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1534587992&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=TL-WPA4530+KIT+Overview+Specifications Hope this helps!
  13. I played with the surface stylus as well. Worked wayyyy better. and you dont have to charge it
  14. I went to best buy yeterday (just to look around) and tried to play with the "pencil" but the employees could not get it to pair or charge. hahaha
  15. That thing looks AMAZING playing racing games would be especially fun!
  16. I am looking for a comparison between the two. The only difference I can seem to find is the USB 3.0 ports. Also any personal reviews of the B276HUL Aymiidprz I currently have a K272HUL bmiidp Thanks!
  17. I believe he is worried about the 3-1-1 rule which states a maximum of 3.4oz and all liquid must be in a 1qt bag.
  18. If I understand correctly you are trying to share the internet from the device with wifi to the wired computer. If this is the case on the computer with both wifi and Ethernet, select both network adapters, right click, bridge. Hope this helps!
  19. Username- Skippytheturtle Favorite videos. https://www.vessel.com/videos/G-DUjgUyY jand https://www.vessel.com/videos/LCoY5zfFf Love it!
  20. Hi I have a 1000 watt platinum rated power supply. I am wondering if it will output about 900 watts of heat. If not how much Thanks
  21. For games it does not work well at all, but for excel sheets and stuff like that it does not do too bad.
  22. You can use all cards in a system to use "extend desktop" in windows. They dont need to have a crossfire bridge. You can even use onboard video and a graphics card to add even more monitors.
