    mtz_federico got a reaction from kirashi in NAT connection   
    Check if your modem/router has the ability to set a device as DMZ, then set your console's ip as DMZ.
    If it doesn't work, you might be behind Carrier grade NAT (CGNAT) and in that case there is nothing you can do.

    mtz_federico got a reaction from The_Vaccine in Is it possible to configure one IP address which doesn't change upon device restart?   
    I don't think they are going to keep it or at least is going to be more expensive because we are running out of ipv4 addresses but they might already give you a publicly routable ipv6 address

    mtz_federico got a reaction from BlackManINC in Internet Issues   
    Wifi is terrible for low latency, I recommend trying to use an ethernet cable (at least to test the internet and see if the problem is wifi or not)

    mtz_federico reacted to brwainer in Adding Ubiquiti to my network   
    Unifi doesn’t make that particular config easy. The only option they provide for separating the names is to add a suffix to the 2.4GHz network. To accomplish what you want, create two WLAN groups, each with a copy of the SSID in it, and then assign the radios on the APs to the different WLAN groups.

    mtz_federico reacted to Alex Atkin UK in Adding Ubiquiti to my network   
    As someone who has used WiFi since before 5Ghz was even an option, my experience is the opposite.  Clients are not intelligent and may connect to 2.4Ghz because its a stronger signal when 5Ghz will actually achieve a better speed.

    If you are adding Access Points to improve coverage, the goal is to never fall back onto 2.4Ghz anyway.

    mtz_federico reacted to Donut417 in Huge internet problems   
    Generally when your lagging and its not an internet issue, you need to start looking at your computer. Check your temps especially. If your getting too warm, then you might be thermal throttling. Also check to make sure no BULL SHIT is running in the background stealing resources from the game.

    mtz_federico reacted to The_russian in How is one faster than the other   
    Do you both have Verizon? You could try swapping the SIM cards and then testing the speeds, see if that makes a difference. Also what app or website are you using to test the speeds?

    mtz_federico reacted to igormp in 10gig Bottleneck   
    I believe it'd be a good idea if you could do a network only test with something like iperf, just to make sure that the actual network is ok and that the problem lies somewhere else:
    You can add it through the following docker image: https://hub.docker.com/r/networkstatic/iperf3
    And run it with:  sudo docker run -it --rm -p 5201:5201 networkstatic/iperf3 -s
    And in a client you can run: iperf -c YourNasIP

    mtz_federico reacted to PineyCreek in What’s the difference between RJ 45 and SFP+ ?   
    SFP+, specifically, is 10G, though some transceivers are dual-rate and can do 1G or 10G depending on your configuration.  SFP by itself will be a 1G transceiver.  They can be fiber or copper, though I would say the large majority of SFP+ transceivers will be fiber.  SFP and SFP+ are used in network gear that support them and are made for modularity and to avoid the limitations of having a fixed configuration in network gear.  The downside to having any modular network gear however is that you have to buy the transceivers for what you're doing, and those cost a bit on top of the gear.  That is the price you pay for the extra option of choice over a fixed configuration (like having just RJ45 connections).
    Note:  If you're thinking about buying a transceiver for an SFP or SFP+ slot, make sure you're getting the right thing.  There's a number of factors to consider like single mode vs multimode (affects distance the light can travel...also price), compatible fiber types, and also what your network hardware can actually use.
    Wikipedia's pretty good here:

    mtz_federico reacted to jj9987 in How to Share my mobile data with the network?   
    Get an LTE router and a dedicated SIM for it, then you can connect that to the network. Sharing from phone to the wired network will require a dedicated computer, that bridges WiFi and LAN (so the laptop connects to the WiFi hotspot and shares that connection with the Ethernet port), but that will be quite a complicated setup and, from my experience, does not give that great performance.

    mtz_federico got a reaction from kirashi in Internet in detached garage   
    It is usually used for point to point connections (one in one building and another in one building) but it should work as an access point (make sure that it is possible before buying one). Just keep in mind that it is 5 Ghz Only. Since the theoretical range is 15 Km (9.3 mi) if you point it directly to your garage and the garage is not made of concrete and within 5 mi (ish) you should be able to get good coverage. If it is made out of concrete or if you have 2.4 Ghz only devices you could put two outside (one in the garage and one in your house) and connect it to an access point or a router acting as an access point to get wifi.
    Here is a good video on this model

    mtz_federico reacted to Kilrah in How to set Cloudflare DNS in Airport Time Capsule? and How to go back to ISP DNS? Thank you!.   
    That's perfectly normal. Your computer will see your router as DNS server, and the router will forward the request to Exactly how it's supposed to work.

    mtz_federico reacted to Lipe123 in UBNT Radios recieving a 169.x.x.x. address   
    169 means DHCP is on and they can't get an address. 
    So it sounds like your static config didn't save or something.
    Or you switched them to bridge mode which clears the ip config and you have to enter it again.

    mtz_federico reacted to FALL1N in Getting blocked because I am apparently using VPN or proxy when I am not?!   
    Well by saying REAL ip i mean not the internal ip that you use in LAN , real ip is the routable ip address that you use for have access to the internet , CGNAT is behind that ip address and it means that CGNAT is not REAL ip address it's one of the internal ip address's of you ISP. You are right about private and public IP's , but CGNAT is after your LAN ip address but before your real ip address that you having access to the internet. that's what i mean by saying REAL ip address

    mtz_federico reacted to Lurick in Getting blocked because I am apparently using VPN or proxy when I am not?!   
    You're either behind CG-NAT and that IP range is flagged OR you're IPv4 address was once used as part of a hosting provider for proxies or VPNs and they've since changed addresses and now your ISP picked them up and you're getting one of those.

    mtz_federico reacted to BrinkGG in How does load balancing routers work?   
    So for your example, here are the options you would have for conventional load balancing: 
    Failover LB: One connection is used all the time, and only when that first connection can't handle the entire network's bandwidth is the second connection used. 
    Weighted Split LB (50/50, 60/40 or similar): The first connection used until it hits a preset load limit, then it will start using the second connection till both are at limits, then both will increase above that to meet the load need. 
    unweighted Split: Both connections are used as close to equally as possible. 
         All of the above can only use the maximum of ONE connection per client. (2x 100/10 connections, one client can only hit 100/10 at max unless it's split workloads like torrenting) 
    Pure split (Rare): "Bonded" connections that allow for full usage of multiple connections, splitting packets evenly and reassembling them before reaching their destination. 
    This is talked about in this LTT video: 
    Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    mtz_federico got a reaction from BirdyTheMighty in accessing freenas on different subnet   
    Yes, if you are also using that router as an acces point (for wifi) you can try to put it on AP mode but since you said that you tried and it didn't work you can also just turn off dhcp, give it a static lan ip on the same ip range as the first router and move the ethernet port that connects to the first router from the wan port to a lan port. 
    If you tell us your router models we might be able to help more.

    mtz_federico reacted to Lurick in Ethernet Upload speed around 1Mbps when 20Mbps on other devices   
    Half duplex means you can only send OR receive data, you cannot do both at the same time.
    My question to you is what happens when you just set it to Auto? You generally don't want to hard code settings either way unless you have a really good reason to.

    mtz_federico reacted to less_pointy in Netgear Power Supply Question   
    I believe OP is specifically concerned with the input ratings.
    Most important thing is that the output matches, which OP clearly understands. As for the input ratings: in theory this does not matter, if the output is correct, your device will work.
    Differences in efficiency of the AD/DC adapter might make that brand A will consume more input power than a brand B (and this might translate to a different input amperage) - but both can have the same output specs.

    mtz_federico reacted to Windows7ge in Netgear Power Supply Question   
    With these type of power supplys the amperage is a measure of how much current it can deliver. If you use a power source with equal voltage and > or = to Amps it should power it fine. You could rig an old ATX PSU to do this.
