  1. Yes, one router is configured. I seemed to have tracked the issue down to it being caused by Hyper-V. I host most of the files on a system where I had Hyper-V enabled and am using the AX WiFi adapter as a bridged NIC for both the host and VMs, however, the VMs have been shut down this whole time so they weren't used. Removing the WiFi NIC from Hyper-V's switch manager seems to have fixed the issues I had. Now, I get 70-85MBps between WiFi clients on the Netgear RT-AX3000! But, now I wonder if I can continue to have the NIC as a virtual switch for my VMs, otherwise, i'll have to get another ada
  2. I am having issues with my new WiFi routers. I have a Netgear RT-AX3000, a TP-Link AX1800 (initially purchased the TP-Link but got the Netgear as I thought it would be faster 1200Mbps vs 2400 Mbps when on 2x2) and a few Win 10 Pro WiFi 6 PCs. When PC1 is on LAN and PC2 is WiFi - I get fast transfers (100+ MBps) over my Windows network shares no problem on both routers. But if both PCs are on WiFi, then the PCs can’t connect to one another at all or windows explorer goes laggy and locks up when navigating to the network shares between the PCs. If I get a transfer to start, it takes like 2-
  3. Space Sniffer is my favorite tool to check what is taking up space: http://www.uderzo.it/main_products/space_sniffer/ Download: https://www.fosshub.com/SpaceSniffer.html
  4. It seems like you can convert MBR OS drives to GPT: http://reflect.macrium.com/help/v5/How_to/Conversions/Convert_an_MBR_disk_to_a_GPT_disk.htm Make sure you back up first! Make a system image at minimum. Personally, I haven't done it on an OS drive. Just a secondary years ago. I'd just do a clean install and drag n drop the files you need or use something like freefilesync to do it as a batch job.
  5. Here is a comparison benches of the WD Blue SN550 vs some popular alternatives I did. I threw in an Adata XPG SX8200 Pro instead of the Samsung. The Samsung 970 EVO Plus is a bit faster in large file copies / writes, but most DRAM based TLC NAND drives perform similar in daily use. I also added in the WD Black SN750 and a Gen 4 NVMe SSD. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/wd-blue-sn550-m2-nvme-ssd-review-best-dramless-ssd-yet/2
  6. That's what I used to do until I got a few 4TB SSDs. Now I'm in speed land haha
  7. So? I didn't say you had to buy a 2TB SSD for one game....lol Thats why they make cheaper lower capacity options...
  8. No, you have to buy a faster product / go SSD
  9. I just used crystal disk info for everything
  10. I mean modify the motherboards firmware code and reflash the modded firmware to it. Not just change a setting in the BIOS/UEFI. You can inject/remove your own features. https://www.win-raid.com/t871f50-Guide-How-to-get-full-NVMe-support-for-all-Systems-with-an-AMI-UEFI-BIOS.html perform at own risk. I'd just use a SATA SSD for boot and the NVMe as secondary until you get a new system. ---also, to your other question on the Initial Graphic Adapter [PCIE] stuff - that's just for setting the default video output. nothing with the SSD.
  11. People here don’t believe intel optane SSDs are for consumers or prosumers. They think they are only server SSDs, which the 90x series is not. I know, it’s funny.
  12. Double check cables as stupid as sit sounds and maybe swap data cables. But it sounds like you got a dud replacement.
