  1. So i was looking around to see if i can get my hand on a mikrotik switch in Canada (specifically one of there Poe ones), but the sites i found on Mikrotiks site i am not sure of. I know they sell some on amazon but want a bigger one just to have to growing room and also, i wanna play with the bigger toys xD so shot over your places to buy mikrotik switches.
  2. I bought it used for 77 CAD with shipping included. I am gonna put it in the room beside the crawlspace so it will be cold but won't be as dusty.
  3. Oh, okay, thanks i know its over kill but i rather overkill then not enough xD
  4. Yeah, i am gonna put it in the crawl space at the bottom of the house. Do you have any recommendations for switches that have POE ? or would it just be easier to have the dell switch, and then a little switch for poe ? cause i am thinking of upgrading the wifi too.
  5. Hey Everyone! So i wanted to ask your opinion, i have plans to roll out a server for me and my family using used server hardware. But before i deploy it, i want to upgrade they home networking in my parents home to ensure that we don't encounter a bottleneck. So my first upgrade is to get a used enterprise networking switch to serve as the backbone of the network, and i am looking at getting a dell powerconnect 6248. I don't actually need all 48ports but i would rather have more ports then necessary in case, and it also looks looks better with 48ports since the 24 port has a huge gap. An
  6. Okay, so completely dumb moment for me but i completely forgot smb exists and so i successfully set up my server on my gaming laptop for my testing
  7. Well i would like the server to be able to be a target download location aswell, since my dad does the downloading on his computer, i would want to be able to have the downloads go straight to the server instead of his computer ?
  8. Omg, the legendary Lead eater :o do you mind if i DM you with somemore questions ?
  9. I did try setting up an FTP server in windows and actually getting it too work has been a complete pain. like its super intuitive.
  10. To start off, I don’t actually need a server but I want to get a used server to play around with, but before I go for it I want to figure out the file sharing plus (i am also in a computer engineering program so it would be a good learning experience). So I was I wondering what would be the best way to share files around my families house, a lot of it would be tv shows and movies my father downloads, and also. Putting games on the server so I don’t have to use the internet to download. Would be great if media could be accessed outside of the house over the internet. I am currently running the
  11. So i just wanted to give you guys an update, i so i think instead i will get a samsung 970 evo 1Tb. it will be plenty fast enough as it will be faster then the new xbox consoles ssd. so any multiplatform will have to target it. I should be able to carry it through atleast 2 builds
  12. Don't think its about the read speed, its about the access latency of NVME being much lower.
  13. But the new consoles use NVme, and with direct storage api coming( meaning graphics can directly access the storage)
  14. Just mostly a trust thing, i have used Lots of Samsung SSD's. And i also like the software for the drive. And the reason no 2.5inch is because sata cannot match the speed of the new console SSDS.
