    Move all of your IOT crap to the 2.4G band if you're having issues on the 5G band.  You can leverage that airspace instead for those devices since they don't require a lot of bandwidth, but will impact an existing frequency with additional beacons and similar.
     
    An additional access point would provide you more airspace/wifi aggregate bandwidth

    Excellent!
     
    As one who has gone the DIY route before, there’s always that one little bad crimp or bent cable that messes up the entire operation. That’s why I tend to save myself the hassle and buy pre-made lengths that I need.
     
    Also, a ping signal confirms a link, not the speed of the cable.

    Getting LTE hotspots for each vehicle would be millions of dollars less expensive.

    If you get full speed directly connected to the modem then you can at least isolate the router as a slowly-forwarding-component.
     
    23 isn't very much, I have 37 on my home network, although I would try to isolate IoT devices onto a separate wifi band than your main 'performance client' 5GHz SSID.

    The two eth0 entries are for different things.  One is a next hop route to your ISP, and one contains the WAN subnet that interfaces with your ISP.
     
    If you're using the WAN interface of your second router then that's why you can't directly access it (also you're rolling double NAT behind router #2).  The best solution is to assign it a static LAN address in the 192.168.1.0/24 space, disable DHCP specifically on router #2 and then connect to the LAN port instead on router #2.

    beersykins reacted to Alex Atkin UK in Gaming over 2,4 GHZ Wifi   
    If there are no other WiFi networks (or anything else) in range broadcasting on the same channel you are using at the same time, then sure it will be fine.  But the point is that 2.4Ghz is used for so much and has such a long range that most people do not have that luxury.
     
    If it works fine for you, don't worry about it.
     
    As for band steering, not surprised it doesn't always work, its pretty much a hack in most implementations.

    You can change the route on the route table manually in command prompt, you'd just give the wired side a lesser-preferred value.

    I have looked everywhere for QoS setting in the Linksys "Smart Wifi" interface for my router where I change all of my settings, but I haven't been able to find anything, I will keep looking and keep you posted.
     
    **EDIT**
    DUDE! I found out that the "media prioritization" setting in router is what QoS is called on my router, I turned it off and my speed went from 300mbps to 871mbps! Thank you so much!
     
    Thank you

    He's adding extra interference to his environment which will decrease performance.
     
    The OG PS4 only had a 2.4g adapter, your best bet is either wired or a 5ghz wifi bridge to wire your PS4 into that integrates into the rest of your network.

    modem to router to switch. It won't work anotuher way.
     
    budget? POE? Features? If you don't need anything special any unmanaged switch will work fine
     
    Its mostly for a nas or server use in homes, it won't help with wan for almost all people
     
    No real reason not to, but cat 6a is probalby fine for a long time, Its unlikely you will need more than 10gbe anytime soon, and 6a can do 10gbe for 100m
     
    Probably cause your router can't handle the full speed
    What router do you have?

    beersykins got a reaction from leadeater in Do You really Need ECC RAM for a home NAS???   
    I think you'll usually hear two sides of the story.
     
    Those who have ran a small environment for a little bit who haven't run into corruption type of issues.
    Those who have been in the game a while and have had issues where features such as ECC would have prevented corruption.
     
    I have had some RAM issues in the past with bit flips on sticks that passed memtest86+, but was noticing some of my files changed hashes and had weird artifacts in documents.  After running hours of tests there was a specific pattern in memtester on Linux that indicated a discrepancy, after replacing the modules all was fine.
     
    Personally the cost premium is less than the troubleshooting effort and data restoration/integrity factors, so it ends up being less expensive to 'do it properly'.

    What's his plan to provide service to each AP, or does he honestly expect a mesh across over 3,000 hops?  At 50m between stations and at least $1k per unit between AP cost and licensing costs you're already at 3.5m without any physical labor installation fees, which would be multiplicatively higher than that.
     
    There's no situation where this is viable or cost effective, when there are clearly better options for a couple hundred bucks a month.

    beersykins got a reaction from scottyseng in Setup VPN on only one SSID/band   
    Such a necro
     
    With most basic home equipment, I'd think not really.  SSIDs are basically a layer 2/ethernet segment so you don't have any traffic decisions based on layer 3 that impact those segments outside of the gateway address and traffic egressing that segment.
     
    If you had some enterprise or prosumer gear you could carve out a different VLAN/subnet and only permit that as a source in your VPN policy for interesting traffic, and create a SSID tied to that VLAN which would VPN on/off based on which SSID you were on.  I don't think those AIO units give you that flexibility.

    You can get ISR2900 series stuff pretty cheap these days, although depending on license some of the feature sets vary (whereas 2800 you can run basically every feature in the image).
     
    I'd probably roll ebay instead of Amazon, you can find better deals (I picked up 2x 2960S-24p for $20/ea, for example).
     
    If you substitute another one of your switches for a L3 switch you can double the device as another routed segment device.

    beersykins reacted to Unixsystem in The three major HDD manufacturers are selling slower drives, without telling us   
    It's a lot easier to find data and reviews about a specific CPU SKU than it is for an HDD. There's also the issue that most store pages online don't put the model number front and center, it's usually buried in the stats and a lot of times they will update the store page to the newest model without making it clear that anything has changed. If you buy a WD Red today on Amazon and then three years from now hit "Order Again" you will almost certainly wind up with a different model number, which in this case may be a totally different base technology. 
     
    If I ordered an i7 today and then a year from now order another from them same tier (9700k to 10700k, for example) I would absolutely expect the new CPU to be at minimum the same performance with the same or improved technologies under the hood. If Intel put out an i7 tomorrow that had no AVX or one less core than the previous gen at the same price tier, that would be shitty. If they did that same thing but put it out as a revision of an existing SKU and didn't very clearly specify what changed, that would be bordering on criminal.

    Don't get a router, just get a dedicated access point instead. You'll either turn the router into an AP anyway by disabling all the routing, DHCP, NAT, etc or risk causing a double NAT scenario.
